    Emeka was a youngster in his teens, he was
    tall, dark in
    completion and always on low cut. He had a
    baby face look that
    made girls go gaga. Despite his age, Emeka was still in
    secondary school. Though intelligent, he had to
    repeat class
    several times when his parent moved from
    one resident to the
    His father Mr. Chukwuemeka Johnson was a police officer
    who always seemed to be transferred to
    other states for official
    duties, the last time he was transferred he
    had to relocate from
    Enugu to Lagos. Although his father had brought the idea that his
    wife and children remain in Enugu whilst he
    travel alone. He
    thought of Renting a two-bedroom
    apartment where he would be
    living and then travel back to Enugu at the end of every week.
    His wife Mrs. Chidebere Yetunde Chukwuemeka
    did not buy the
    idea as she thought of the possibility of her
    husband having a
    ghastly car accident once in 52 weeks of the year which may lead
    to his death and she didn’t want to become a
    She was
    probably not trying to be a pessimist but
    according to her words
    “when people seek for good deeds they should also think of the
    bad that comes along with it, because nothing
    good comes
    without a price.” She also thought of being
    alone 5days in a week
    without seeing her lovely husband, and even though she knew
    their moving together was going to affect her
    education, it was worth doing.
    Mr. Chukwuemeka who is a listening man had
    no other option than to agree with his wife. When Emeka
    came back from school
    that friday afternoon, his mother broke the
    news to him, on
    hearing it, he was startled, he could not
    decipher why his father had to be transferred for the third time in
    five years, he was sure
    going to miss alot of people.
    The first on his mind was Chinedu; Chinedu was
    his best-friend
    and next-door-neighbour, he was 15years of age but never acted
    like a teenager. Chinedu is that kind of guy who
    will see you in
    the morning without greeting even though
    you’re older than him,
    it’s not as though he had any grudges against you, i guess he
    just had the ego thing working for him. Emeka
    was two years
    older than Chinedu in age but Chinedu was two
    years older than
    Emeka in class.
    Emeka was in ss1 while Chinedu was in ss3 but
    despite Chinedu’s Stubbornes he had always
    showed Emeka his
    deserved respect when he dim fit.
    By this time Emeka was already day-dreaming
    as he suddenly switch from Chinedu to Amaka. Amaka was a
    girl of moderate
    height, also in the same class with Emeka, she
    was 16years of
    age with nice curves and dark sleek skin.
    Emeka had alot of female classmates who were pestering over
    him because of his
    looks and intelligence but he boycotted them
    all just because of
    Amaka. He had a strong crush for her but
    never had the confidence to let her know how he feels about
    her. Although both
    of them were close friends, they usually read
    novels together, gist
    together and once played roles of man and
    wife in a drama playlet when their school went on extra
    curricular activities
    which was organised by the state ministry of
    Several times he had had the spurred to ask
    her to be his girlfriend but to no avail. Sometimes he
    thought a spell was
    casted on him because ugly girls always had a
    way to
    manoeuvre their ways into his life even though
    he didn’t show them face but when he saw a pretty girl who
    he really loved so
    much he could not approach her with
    relationship intentions
    because he didn’t have the boldness to do so.
    But who exactly will curse him when he had not offended
    anybody, he thought.
    Just then the Audible voice of his mother
    disrupted his
    “chidi! chidi! chidi!” she shouted above her tiny voice.
    “Mm.. Mm.. Ma!.. Yes Ma!” he stuttered.
    “What are you thinking about?, i’have been
    calling your name for
    over a minute but you refuse to reply” she
    retorted. “Nothing mama, i’m sorry but i have to go to
    my room now” he
    “Alright!, you may leave, do call me your sister
    on your way
    inside” she commanded. “okay, ma” he said and dashed into his room in
    the speed of
    Chidi is actually Emeka’s first name but his
    classmate are fond
    of addressing him as Emeka after he was dubbed Sergeant Emeka
    after his father.
    Immediately Emeka got to his room, he sat on
    his bed weeping
    and started to soliloquies. He said to himself.
    “Amaka, you’re the love of my life, although i might be leaving
    you but my heart will forever remain for you, i
    see you as a good
    girl and i want to spend the rest of my life
    with you, i promise to
    remain celibate, and for not being able to propose my love for
    you, i will remain a VIRGIN all because of you.
    This i promise…

    The next day was saturday, Emeka woke up
    with a saw in his
    heart, he was sick, love sick. His eyes were
    bugged and reddish
    like he had contracted the apollo virus. It
    seemed he had been crying all Night. He went into the bathroom to
    wash his face only
    then did he realised how sick he looked after
    seeing his reflection
    on a mirror hanged on the wall. He took out his
    toothbrush from a rubber-like container and pasted close-up on
    it. He washed
    his mouth and then headed straight to his
    parents room for the
    usual morning greetings, it was a tradition in
    their house.
    On getting there, he greeted his parents in igbo
    dialet and they
    responded. His mother noticed his unusual looks
    immediately knew something was wrong.
    “chidi, are you okay?” she asked. “i’m fine ma.” he lied.
    “..but you don’t look fine” Mr. Chukwuemeka
    Before Emeka could reply his father, his
    mother cuts in.
    “come closer lemme examine you” she commanded.
    Emeka moved closer to her, when he got to
    her stance, he
    squatted, she used her hands to open one of
    his eyes and then
    used her wrist to touch the surface of his skin close to the neck
    region, her plan was to observe the degree of
    heat on his body.
    Emeka’s eyes were already getting back to
    normal but his body
    was a living hell. “chineke!” she exclaimed.
    N:B: Chineke means “GOD in igbo language”
    Mr Chukwuemeka was shooked as he quickly
    inquired what was
    wrong. Very unlikely from a police officer.
    “chidi is not feeling fine” i think he has fever, it’s not serious
    though, i’ll go to mama Nkiruka’s pharmacy to
    buy him fever
    pills, she added.
    Emeka stood up and started to walk away, his
    father cut him short by asking where he was going.
    “i’m off to do my morning chores” he said.
    “No! No! No! No! Don’t worry about that, i’ll
    take care of them”
    his mother said shouting.
    Both his parents loved Emeka so much, moreso his kid sister. It
    took them several years after they had
    conceived Chidi before
    they could born little Chiwe. Chiwe was 2years
    old and she had
    just started Nursery school.
    They loved both Chidi(Emeka) and
    Chiwe and they would trade them for nothing.
    Emeka obeyed his parents and walked back to
    his room, few
    minutes later his mother brought him a pack
    of rice filled with assorted meat which she bought from a
    roadside buka as she
    had not yet cook that early morning, also with
    her was the fever
    medicine she bought from Mama Nkiruka’s
    Chemist just opposite their house.
    She sat there with Emeka watching him as he
    ate, he could not
    finish the whole content of the food, his
    mother tried to persuade
    him to finish the last pieces of meat but her plea fell into deaf
    ears. She had no other option than to give him
    the medicine.
    Emeka dropped the tablet into his mouth and
    gulped a huge
    chunk of water to swallow it down. He made to sleep and few
    hours later he sighted Amaka from a close
    Emeka woke up from sleep looking strong and
    agile, Every
    symptom of illness had suddenly disappeared. He looked at the
    wallclock located at one extreme of his room
    and it reads
    1:25pm. He breath a sigh of relief and walked
    majestically to see
    his mother. “oh! you’re awake” she asked an obvious
    “yes mama, and i feel much better now.”
    she confirmed it herself and saw him fit again.
    “your food is in the kitchen” she informed him.
    “alright mama, but i’ll be going to the field when i’m done eating.
    “no problem, just made sure you come home
    on time, remember
    you need to pack your things together because
    we’ll be leaving
    first thing tomorrow morning. “okay.” he agreed.
    Atleast he still had few
    hours to gallivant
    about the city of enugu.
    He sprinted out of the house with full force to
    see his next door
    neighbour Chinedu devouring a plate of Eba.
    N:B: Eba is a food made from garri.
    Chinedu was not only stubborn but also a
    glutton, he could eat
    anything practically eatable, his excuse for
    loving food so much
    was that “life is a jungle, you need to eat to keep up with the
    pace of struggle.
    “ffo! I hail ooO” Emeka praised him.
    N:B: FFO means “for food only” (it is used to
    refer to people who
    eats alot) “chiboy, how far naw?” he asked in pidgin
    “you dey mad? na me you dey call boy, abi you
    nor know say i
    reach to born you” emeka said jokingly.
    “i’diot, how your life naw, i bin think say you don die ooo”
    chinedu said trying to change the topic.
    “you no well! why you say so?” emeka inquired.
    “as i no gree see you since morning wetin you
    say make i think”
    he lamented. “Nna forget that thing jor, i bin dey sick this
    morning” emeka
    “really! wetin hapun?” he said suprised.
    Emeka began to narrate the whole issue at
    stake, he told Chinedu about his father’s immediate transfer and
    relocation. For the first
    time he wished his father wasen’t working for
    the government.
    Emeka had managed to build a world but it’s
    as though they were crumbling before his eyes.
    Chinedu literally wept
    even though
    tears didn’t fell from his eyes. The last time he
    cried was the day
    he was born. Emeka was the only friend he
    had because everyone seemed to distance away from him because of
    his disrespectful
    attitude. He was not a bad guy like most
    people claimed, his
    self-esteem was always his setback. People
    only needed an iota of understand to know his real personality.
    Emeka and Chinedu had been through the good,
    bad and ugly.
    They had had several misunderstandings but
    instead of bringing
    them apart, it only drew them closer. Emeka suggested they go to Catholic football
    field before they
    start weeping like new born babies. The field
    was at the outskirt
    of the city, people called it Catholic football
    field because of a Catholic church situated there.
    Chinedu had already lost appetite to continue
    eating, he went to
    his “ghana must go” bag and brought out his
    football wears and
    off they went, after treking for roughly fourteen minutes, they
    finally got to the field.
    The place was filled to the brim, both Chinede
    and Emeka
    seemed to be oblivious that a street football
    competition was holding there that afternoon. They knew they
    had to do
    something unless they were not going to play
    in the match
    because neither of them are from the two
    streets participating.
    Chinedu being the stubborn guy head the lead to
    the spot where
    people were gathered to choose players while
    Emeka walked
    behind him. He did his trick as usual and they
    were both featured in the match. Emeka and Chinedu were playing
    for the same side,
    the match had gone into the extra time of the
    second half, both
    teams were playing a 3-3 tie as Chinedu had
    helped his team scored two of the goals. It was remaining two
    minutes for the
    match to come to a halt, then the ball
    magically found its way to
    Chinedu’s foot, him being a very skillful player
    dribbled four players including the last defender, Emeka was
    some inches
    ahead of him, it remained one goal for Chinedu
    to score a hat-
    trick and his teams will become the winner of
    the one thousand naira bet which they didn’t contribute in,
    instead he passed the
    ball to Emeka, he wanted Emeka to score the
    last goal which he
    envisage as a souvenir to remember him,
    suddenly the unexpected happened.
    Emeka sighted Amaka from a close range, she
    had just come out
    from the catholic church close to the field
    where she went for
    choir practice. Emeka was so excited to see her as he kicked the
    ball anti-clockwise and ran towards her a fast
    as his legs could
    carry him.
