THE KEY WAHALA (Episode 9)

10.15am


"I can see that you kids
have decided to disgrace
this household, but I will
never allow it." Dad was
speaking to Ada and John.



"I will not harbor a rogue
and a prost!tute in this
house, never!!!" his voice
was so loud that I could
feel the vibration it caused in my room. "I dedicate my time and my
life trying to
ensure that you kids get
the best in life. But how do you kids show your
gratitude? You miss
classes, come home with poor results, sleep around, smoke and get pregnant!!
Tell me what father will
have this knowledge
about his kids and be
happy?" Ada raised her head in shock when Dad
mentioned pregnancy.


How in God's name did he
find out that she was
under suspicion that she might be pregnant? It was then that she
realized that she was in a more serious problem with Dad. She had
taught Dad was just going to complain about the cell phone and then
the key and finally conclude by making them feel silly and everybody
retires into their room.

What did he see in her cell phone that made him
aware of the situation?

Perhaps Vivian replied the text she sent to her early this morning and
Dad had seen it.

"Ada, how old are you?"
Dad continued, "At such a
tender age you think the
best thing for you to do is
to sleep around? Telling
everybody that you lack home training? Disgracing the family?
Embarrassing me?" They remain silent, both
trembling in fear and
almost wetting their
pants.

"Look at you John, you are
barely 14yrs" John looked
up sharply, how could Dad
say he was 13yrs? "And all you do is sleep around and smoke with
vagabonds in town? No!! I won't take
this! Not while I am alive.
Ada you are not going to
have your b-----d baby in
my house and you, John, I
don't breed thieves here so you can go and live with your trainers so
that you can perfect in the act of smoking. I will not, I repeat, I
will never spend my money on anyone who does not want it, neither
will I house such a person." Mum had already appeared
at his back. She had read
the text message in Ada's
cell phone and confirmed
what Dad had read. She
had allowed the cell phone to drop from her because
her shivery hand could
hold it any longer. This
was much more than she
could handle. She had
suspected that Ada was already sexually active but didn't know how to
approach her on the issue.

The mother-daughter
relationship she had tried
to build between them hadn't worked out mainly
because she had allowed
herself to be carried away by Dad's lack of attention towards her and
the family generally. Now Ada was pregnant.

The whole world will
blame her for being a bad
mother. How could she
face this shame? Her daughter was only
eighteen. Now from the background
she stared at Ada with a
scornful look. Different
emotions ran through her.

She felt sad, afraid,
disappointed, and angry.

"Look at you Ada! You
don't know how to respect yourself, how can you make yourself so cheap
for men? I am disappointed in
the two of you." Mum said as she broke down and
started crying. The air was so tense that
both Ada and John felt like the earth should open up and swallow them,
Ada felt worse. "I will never take it! Once
this key is found or once
the door is broken down,
the both of you should
leave my house. You can
go and practice you prostitution and thug life
elsewhere. Now both
should leave my presence, go to your room and get ready to leave my
house!!" Ada and John turned
around and began to leave, while Mum continued to sob loudly behind
Dad. But Dad wasn't satisfied with
his verdict, especially given the fact that they
both didn't show any sign
of remorse, neither did
they hesitate and beg.

"In fact, you will not take
anything with you, I don't
care how you survive, you
will leave this house with
nothing because
everything you own, I bought them with my
money." He added. He had been so hurt with
the new knowledge about Ada and John that the only thing he wanted to
do was to hurt them back. How could they disregard him this way? To
Dad, he had been
insulted beyond a bearable limit. He felt really hurt that his heart
ached; he felt so much psychological pain that his eyes were almost
filled with tears. Who Do You Think Should
Be Blamed For This
Disaster In The Family?
