THE KEY WAHALA (Episode 15)

Ada was lying on her bed when Mum knocked on her door. She stood up, looking
surprisingly at the door.

That was strange, nobody ever knocked on anybody’s in this house. Something was
wrong, she was sure. She walked up to the
door and opened it, not knowing what to expect.

Mum was facing her; they stared at
each other for some seconds and mum
walked into the room looking around the
room like she was seeing it for the first
time.
Ada continued to stare at her even as Mum
sat on her bed. Mum looked intensely at her
from the bed, “Have you been crying? Your
face looks swollen.”
“No Mum but…”
“It’s okay, you just have to brighten up… sit
down, I will like to chat with you.” Mum
quickly said.
Now this was definitely strange. How was
Ada going to have a mother daughter chat
with mum? That would be weird, she had
never seen mum from that angle.
“For how long now have you noticed that
you were pregnant?” Mum softly asked.
This melted Ada’s spirit. She looked up at
Mum and surprisingly couldn’t hold the
stare. She suddenly saw herself as a child.
“I have been late for three days and it has
been bothering me.” She replied, her eyes
pleaded for help.
Mum could see it.
Mum felt really bad all over again. She
didn’t even know the dates that surround
her daughter’s monthlies. What kind of
mother was she?
But she was a bit hopeful that Ada might
not be pregnant after all.
“What has been bothering for the past three
days?” She asked.
“I don’t know Mum, I …”
“Don’t be afraid, I won’t scold you,” Mum
encouraged her.
“I had unprotected s-x with… my boyfriend
the last time I wasn’t safe and it had gotten
me scared all these while; I have been
anticipating my period even before now.”
Mum continued to stare at her, but there
was no trace of anger in her face.
“Ada, I must be honest, I have always
suspected that you were sexually active and
I am very sorry that I didn’t do anything
about it. The problem now is that you are
doing it without protecting yourself. Why are
you taking such risk?” she gently asked.
“I… I don’t know Mum, I didn’t know what I
was doing.”
“You are too young to make s-x your
priority; you obviously cannot handle it. As
you can see it is capable of distracting you
from your focus in life and by the time you
know it, it is already too late as time waits
for no one.”
Mums words were really affecting Ada.
Painful tears started to flow from her eyes,
“I am very sorry Mum, I didn’t know what
got over me. I didn’t think anybody cared
and got carried away by frustrations. I
allowed myself to be deceived by Mike
and…” her sobs couldn’t allow her finish.
“It’s okay now,” Mum said and held her onto
her b---m, it felt good to have her baby
back.
“I promise that you won’t feel neglected
again, I will always be here for you. Don’t
cry.” She allowed Ada to cry for some time,
“Now I want you to promise me that you will
start acting accordingly, No more missing
lectures for anything, you party with only my
permission, I want to know who your
boyfriend is, bring your friends home and
make me a part of your life. Can you do
that?”
“Yes Mum, I will try,” Ada answered,
wondering how she could fulfill the promise.
“Don’t worry, we will work together to bring
you to the right path, and I will also like to
learn some new tricks you girls have
nowadays, you know I am already old
fashioned?”
This got Ada smiling, “You are not old
fashioned Mum, you are still young and
beautiful,” she said, surprised at how easy
that came out from her mouth. This wasn’t
going to be difficult afterall.
Mum sighed heavily, “Ok, I want you to have
a rest, relax you mind and allow nothing to
trouble you.” She stood up and headed for
the door, she remembered that Ada’s mobile
phone was still with her.
“have your phone” Mum said handing over
the phone to her.
“Thanks Mum.I love you” Ada said.
“I love you too my dear. Your father and i
will be preparing something in the kitchen.
When the food is ready, i will call you” Mum
said and left.
Ada was really surprised at this. Mum and
Dad cooking. What a day.
Immediately, her phone rang. It was Mike.
“helo baby, dress up and come over, there is
a party. remember to bring money o” Ada
hissed.
“I am sorry Mike, i can’t make it” She
replied without any fear of rejection.
