TRUST AND UNDERSTANDING IS THE ULTIMATE. (a story for teens and parents)

Written by Chinaza Jessica

“How could you! I mean how could you!?” the woman screamed bursting into the big room.
“How could you Andrew? How could you damage the image of this family. How could you choose to disgrace me and undermine the good and Christian discipline you were raised in?
You undermine it and decided to be a cultist, a smoker, kidnapper and a murderer. A delinquent!” the aged woman screamed.

The occupants of the room turned to the fuming woman, the young man she had come for turned his face from her undisturbed. He continued releasing puffs of smoke and he watched the performance of the girls around him. The corners of his face portrayed a knowing smile as he continued his smoking admist the woman’s ranting.

“Is this what I trained you to be ehh Andrew? You have abandoned your good certificate as an over qualified Engineer to become a delinquent! Vagabond!! A nonentity!!! You have put your late father and I to shame.
I wanted you to be like Taiwo. Taiwo is a good child, A son to be proud of. You and Taiwo were agemates attending the same school and church. I have provided you with all he had.
Taiwo studied Engineering and look at him today! A successful young man unlike you. I always knew you would not heed to my advise.
You were a very different child. I knew it. You were stubborn and thick headed.”

As the woman continued yelling. The young man’s knowing smile did not leave his face as he continued releasing puffs of smoke from his ciga in an exotic manner. He seemed to be enjoying her rantings.

The frustrated mother continued “I wanted you to be like Taiwo. But you were carried away by the devil. The son of a deaconess has shamed me. The Bible says spare the rod and spoil the child. I disciplined you times without number but you didn’t change. You grew worse.
My son is now a delinquent. What did I not do as a mother? The lord knows I did my best. I loved and trained you. I disciplined and cared for you. Tell me what I did not do for you…

“Enough!!!” the big man said banging the table and standing up. The huge figure arose. His hard face, his huge muscles, plenty body scars and tough body structure showed evidences of tough workouts and street escapades. He wore a black Jean and clean white T-shirt.
He would have been the young, fair and handsome lad he was a very few years ago.
He was no longer the thin, weak boy of then. He was now a grown rugged, thick and hard Big man as he was called by the street.

“You, You You get out!!!” he barked at the performing ladies who flinched and hurriedly picked their things and left In fright. He turned to the woman.
“You ask what you didn’t give me mum? You ask that?” he thundered At her.
“You really want to know? What I lacked all my days as your son?
Do you really want to know what I lacked from the deacon and deaconess?” he asked with a tiny laugh that spoke of so many emotions.
“I lacked understanding!” he screamed facing the woman.
“UNDERSTANDING!!!” he thundered slapping Both palms together.
“Understanding Goddammit!!!”

“Andrew what do you mean by understanding. I understood you perfectly. I was there for you emotionally and Psychologically like a true mother would.” she lectured a bit confused.

The big man looked at her and laughed. The kind of laughter that spoke of mockery and self pity.
“Here she goes again. Spoken so well about a child’s welfare and upbringing like the deaconess she is.
Ahh! It’s a pity she is very good at talks but doesn’t understand what she says.”

“Now listen to me Andrew. This is no way to talk to your mother. I have taken good care of you, you were trained in the church. I gave you a good Christian upbringing. I am a deaconess.” she stamped her foot.

“Oh really Mrs. Deaconess you gave me a Christian upbringing? Wow! That’s good to know.”he said with a mischievous grin.

“you took me to church. Yes, I agree. But the only reason I came to church with you because you forced me to all my life. I hated Church. The love you preached about God and we should show, I never felt or saw it even from the so called deaconess!
I never felt love from you or Papa. Never.”

“What do you mean? I preached about love and our family was a perfect example of it.”

“oh yes, I remember. I remember your preaching. It was one of the major reasons I hated you and church. Every single time you took the mic, you would talk about our family. How useless your son was.
How you have tried talking and disciplining him as a mother. You would stand there and talk of mistakes I made in the past and most times over exaggerated them.

You talked about how awful teens were and I was the example you always used. Not once did you mention anything I had done right.
You always concluded admonishing parents never to allow their Children make their own choices as long as they were in your house because they were silly and immature like your son.

You would come down from the altar with deafening claps from the congregation. You didn’t know what I felt sitted down there in shame and pain. The glares and stares other parents gave me.
did you know what they said about me?
Do you know how bad I felt?
No! You were “preaching” the gospel. I hated church and especially house fellowship meetings!!!”

“The Bible says children obey your parents in the lord for this is right.
Train up your child in the way he should grow…

“spare me that bullshit mama! The same Bible says parents provoke not your children to anger.
Ever since my childhood. I hated myself! I Hated you and daddy. I never felt proud or sure of myself because you always said I wasn’t good enough for you. You said I was a disgrace and couldn’t represent the family.

Everytime you screamed at me and compared me to other kids especially Taiwo.
Taiwo this, Taiwo that, why can’t you be like him, good and hardworking. His parents never complained of him.
You compared me to other kids.”

“I compared you to them because I wanted you to take challenges and be like them. You fool!”

“really mum? You didn’t know that every time you compared me to them, I didn’t feel challenged in fact I felt lesser. Like they were better than me. I felt like a disgrace!!!”

“Andrew I wanted the best for you.”

“yea yea, the best. You wanted the best and i tried to give you the best of my abilities. But I was never good enough. I wanted to be a foot baller but you wanted me to be an Engineer.”

“I didn’t want your A brain to waste. I didn’t want my son to be a delinquent!”

“And so you rejected a life Changing offer of a scholarship to study at an international football academy where my future was assured.
You warned the man to stay away from me and you beat the hell outta me warning me never to play football again!!!”

“I wanted you to be an Engineer!!!”

“And you wasted my future.” he banged the table.

“Mama you turned me to a loner warning all the kids to stay away. They were a bad influence. I became lonely all my life with you!!!”

“Evil communication corrupts good manners Andrew.”

“And how do you know they were evil?”

“I just felt so.”

“wow you felt so? What a wonderful feeling!” he said sarcastically.

“Andrew, I wanted God’s wish for you.” she said weakly.

“That’s good to know and that’s why you called me a failure. You said there was nothing I would ever be good at except wasting my life.
You said you wished. I was never your son. You wish you had Taiwo, who was a blessing to his parents unlike me.
Well guess what mum? The Taiwo you always compared me to. He always told me that his parents wish they had me as a son.”

“Andrew.. I… Emm…

“There was not a single time I was happy with you. I became alone and very depressed. I had no friends because you chased them away. I found solace in quiet and dark places. I tried my very best to stay away from you and daddy.
And when you noticed it. You said I was evil and had something bad to do. You didn’t trust me.”

“I… I… I

“Now tell me my dearest mother. what kind of parent don’t trust her child. Any rumor you heard about me you would always punish me without confirming.”

“I was trying to discipline you.”

“discipline?” he laughed again
“because of discipline, I would go to school with an heavy eyes, swollen eyes and many scars. Every body stayed away from me because of you.

My life was a torment because of you and daddy’s screams, venom and beating. I became a whimp, depressed and lonely child.”

“But.. I… I…

“I wondered why God brought me into this kind of family. I saw other kids happy. I wanted to be happy too.
I began to hate you, papa, every body and God. From fear it became depression and lastly hate.
Pure Hate!!!”
His eyes began to water.

“But why didn’t you tell me?” she asked shaking and disappointed In herself for once.

He laughed hysterically.

“tell you? I should tell you. Where you even approachable? I tried and tried but couldn’t.
How would I talk to some one you barely knew, loved or trust.
Did you even understand? There were times I wanted to be with you so bad. But you pushed me away, my own mother pushed me away!”

She looked at him as tears flowed from her eyes. She knew she has failed as a mother. She placed her palms on her face and gazed at him as tears flowed freely.
She looked at him and saw the tender lamb In him.

The 13 year old she always yelled and beat publicly and In private.
The 14 year old she pushed his friends away.
The 15 year old she always compares.
The 16 year old she destroyed his life changing dreams
The 17 year old she pushed away.
Finally 18 year old depressed Andrew.

She wanted to make changes and start a new life with him. She wanted to be a better mother and Friend. An understanding friend, she wanted her only child back.

“Andrew I am sorry. I am sorry for all my wrong doings. The good mother and Friend I failed to be I want to know and understand you. Let’s start over please please…
She pleaded in tears.

Andrew looked at her and shook his head negatively. He pushed her hands off and turned away from her.

“you want to know and love me now? You want to be a good mother and make amends Now?
I’m sorry. It’s too late. You see after living in hell with you. I entered into school to study your dream engineering.
I hated my course and myself. I stopped church and God and anything that reminded me of you and Papa. I hated dark and quiet places because it reminded me of your shouts and the gossips of our neighbours.

I became more depressed. I was introduced into drugs by cultists and soon I found solace in them.

Over the years I got used to the hard life and became a major Capone.

Now I am a drug dealers, a child of the street and a murderer. I know the police are on my trail but who cares. I’ve gotten into worse conditions before. I’m nor scared of death.

And now you want to be a good mother? There was never an understanding between you and I.
I can never love or trust you again.”

He turned his back on the weeping woman and faced the window.

“it is too late mum. Good bye.”

✍️ Episode Twenty✍️

🌺 Daniella pov🌺

I was coming out of the class after having some chat with Amy at the cafeteria because she seems to be broken and I didn’t even realize she had feelings for Bryan and it this strong.

I made up some lies when she asks about Martha even though I know she must probably be with Bryan. I don’t know what really happened but Jabson refuse to tell me and that lead to a little fight between us too.

“Isn’t that Martha?” Why is she with John?. Hope it not what I’m thinking, I quickly approach them and gave John a glare before dragging Martha away from him.

“Let go off me Daniella”she said and I kept dragged her till we reach the empty classrooms and I lock the door.

“What the hell is happening”I questioned.
“You should tell me why you bring me here when I was in the middle of an important something”She yelled at me and I was surprised.

“Martha? John is the importance thing you are talking about?”
“Doesn’t it worth it?”
“What have gotten into you”I asks.
“Maybe you should direct that to your friend”She sounded so rude to me.

“My friend aren’t we friends too?”I asks.
“I have a class”She said and I scoff.
“This is the same class you are having now tell me what happening and what were you discussing with John”I asks.

.”And why should I tell you?”she asks me.
“Even if you are Bryan have a little misunderstanding shouldn’t you be soughting it out instead of going to that bastard”I yelled.

“Why do everyone hate him?”
“You really want to know?”I asks.
“There is a party tonight at my house and John will be there come over with Bryan”
“No”she rejected.

“Why?”
“I don’t want to have anything to do with him”she said.
“Why for goodness sake”
“he tried to rape me are you satisfied”she fired at me.

“Rape? I thought you guys are married?”
“Okay fine !! this is the truth we are married but aren’t together because we hate each other guys and yesterday night he tried to rape me when I wanted to treat his wounds”

“What wound?”I asks in surprise.
“He was attacked by an hoodlums last night”she replied and I gasped.
“His he okay”I asks and she shot at me making me hold back my words.

“I hope you understand and stop all this drama because John is only been nice to me”she said.
“John is……”I kept quiet and stare at her for a while.

“Martha are you that blind?”I asks.
“I can see Clearly and you are putting on white”She said and I sigh deeply.
“He loves you and he just doesn’t want to hurt you because of his situation that he doesn’t realize I know a long time ago though”

“What do you mean”
“I think this is right time he need you or you might lose him forever but I still need some investigation I have a feeling John is behind is attack”
“There you go again”She clap her hand together.

“Martha I’m been serious, he need you now but why did he react like that because he already stop_OMG”I gasped.
“What?!”
“I will talk to you later”I ran out of the class and went to search for Bryan and Jabson and luckily I found them at the school backyard.

“Hey guys”I greeted but the both of them just snub me but I ignore that.
“I think I know what really happened”I said and they both exchange glance before looking at me.

“Know what? Your addiction occurred because you got injected with large dose of Vulgar last night”I said and Bryan punch Jabson in the face making me gasped.

“You f**king tell her”he roared and this is my first time I ever see Bryan mad at Jabson.
“No”he spat out blood.
“Omg”I squat and help Jabson up but he shove me away.

“He didn’t tell me, I found out myself okay”I said and he just wipe his hand.
“I’m serious Bryand I think you weren’t actually attacked yesterday but instead you were drugged and it only two person I know can do that.

“My father or John”he said and I nod.
“Sorry dude”he apologized to Jabson and he just ignore him and take care of his broken lips.

“Who even tell you I was attacked?”He asks.
“Matha”I replied honestly and he slum on the bench back.
“What did she say?”he asks.
“We just need to give her more time I guess”

“She can never forgive me and it hurt she is following that bastard”I almost cried as I watch Bryan speak.

He has never been broken like this before. What the hell is wrong with Martha?.

💦 BRYAN💦
Martha had obviously been avoiding me since morning and now it lunch, Jabson invited me to closet to talk since it might be bad talking about it in the cafeteria.

“Did you tell her?”he asks.
“She hate me now now and something doesn’t feel right”
“What do you mean?”
“I wasn’t having any reaction after I got so close to Martha something must definitely be wrong somewhere”

“You weren’t using your drugs right?”
“Jabson I’m for real why do I have a feeling John knows about it”
“John?”
“After the attack I started having the symptoms again”

“This is serious but you need to tell her because you know it important for her to know she is your wife Bryan”Jabson emphasized.

“Okay you want me to walk up to her and be like Princess, I’m a s*x maniac like you always say and I haven’t been using my drugs and that why I had a sign last night again”I roll my eye and he gave a weird look.

“What?!”
“That exactly how you gonna say it bro”he hit my arm.
“No Jabson, Dad”I said and he sigh deeply.
“I think it time we look into john Matter”he said and I reason with that.

“After school”
“Princess would get suspicious of me again”
“An hint you are starting to like her”he smirk.
“What do you mean”
“Never mind so after school I will handle the rest and you know it can’t be kept long so tell her”

MARTHA.

“What’s up with you?”Amy asks as I made some slurping sound with my juice.
“You seems off or is it because of Bryan”Daniella asks.
“Bryan? why should she care about Bryan”Amy asks and my eye widened.

Shit!!!
“She doesn’t know”I signal Daniella and she gasped.
“ummm I meant I haven’t seen Bryan since morning”Daniella tried to change the topic but obviously Amy wasn’t buying it.

“Bullshit I’m not a dummy so spill it out girl”
“I’m serious”Daniella fake a laugh and I joined.
“You laugh like that whenever you like”She roll her eye and I sigh in defeat.

“Fine!!!”I hit the table and sign deeply resting properly on the chair.
“Go ahead and spill it girl”She said and I exchange glance with Daniella and she gave me a signal to go ahead.

“I found out recently that Daniella and Jabson are couples and I was really excited” Daniella raise her brows confused but I just sniff and continue.

“I have a little crush on Bryan too but I didn’t want to tell you because you always dream of marrying him but recently I found out from Jabson he is married”

“Married?!”She yelled.
“Hey! it a secret between Jabson and I and since Daniella is his girlfriend she found out so have been sad lately mainly because of that”I lied and I exchange glance with Daniella but she just stare at me with eye widened and jaws down.

“Bryan is married?”She repeated surprised and I nod my head.
“That son of a bastard, I’ve been waiting all years for him to like me and he got married to a bitch!!”She stood up angrily.

“Amy”Daniella and I quickly follow her to ensure she isn’t going to do something stupid.
I sighted Jabson and Bryan coming out from the closet and Amy faced the direction.

“What going on _”Bryan received an hot slap from Bryan and we all gasped.
“What the hell”he cussed.
“You got married and didn’t even inform anyone and I was here crushing on you forever”She said and Bryan eye landed on me and I shrugged.

This is crazy!!!😂😂😂.
“Who told you I’m married and why would you slap me for my decision”
“I’m definitely going to find that bitch you got married too and squeeze her neck till she is out of breathe”she said and I touch my neck nervously.

“Amy it okay”I tried to touch her but she shove my hand away and walk away angrily.
“I need an explanation for what just happened”
“Everything happens for a purpose”Daniella inhale deeply as she watch Amy leave angrily.

“I just wish I’m not going to die once she find out”
“It was isn’t necessary you lied”Daniella replied.
“I can’t tell her”I said.
“Why?”
“Enough of all this can someone tell me what just happened”Bryan cut it off and we both kept mute.

“Jabson I have something to show you can you come with me”Daniella pull Jabson and I think he got the information and left.

I don’t want to be alone with Bryan!!!!. What if he hurt me again.
“I have a class”I said and try to walk away but he held my wrist stopping me before I leave and my hand went to my wrist so he let go.

“I’m sorry”he muttered.
“I don’t really think I want that so go f**k yourself”I replied.
“I have something else to tell you”he said and I look the other side.

“Prince_”
“Just don’t call me that, do you realize you almost raped yesterday”
“Raped!!?”
“Yeah”

“We are married Martha”he said and I scoff.
“Forcing means rape”I made it clear to him.
“And that why you need to listen to me”he said but Im not interested in that and immediately I sighted John I quickly call him.

“John”I called and he wave at me immediately he saw me.
“Don’t ever call this marriage again”I muttered before walking to John leaving him standing there like a fool he is.

✍️ Episode Eighteen✍️

MARTHA

He kept kissing me roughly and taking all his rage out of me and that hurting me.
“Bryan stop you are hurting me”I said trying to push him away but his hand tightened round me and he didn’t break the kiss devouring my lips.

“Bryan stop”I use the left strength in me to push him away and ran out of his room not waiting to hear anything from him.

🌺 BRYAN🌺

what the hell have I done again. I took my medicine before going to bed and it still happen after she made me so horny badly.

I can’t just walk up to her and tell her I’m a s*x addict. It all started when I was Eleven, yeah Eleven still a kid.

I lost my mother during those time and it affected me so much. Dad wasn’t there for me and I was indulge in all kind of act as a kid.

I really didn’t see anything bad there because I mingle with people older than my age but one thing I never did was drug because I had it makes people mad as a kid then though.

It was during a bad experience with my constantly urge to have girls around me I met Jabson at thirteen.

He helped me out of those bad gang and recently I found out John handle the gang now but that a details for another day.

Recently my dad found out about it and he took me to a doctor and he explained to my dad about my s*xual behavior persistent s*xual thought and that interferes in my relationship school work and all that.

After months of attending I was given a medical prescription to these might include anti-androgens, such as medroxyprogesterone (Provera), as well as selective serotoninreuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), including fluoxetine (Prozac). While a doctor may prescribe these drugs to reduce sexual urges, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have not approved any medications for treating this condition.

Dad decide to allow me marry Martha at first it was a crazy idea because no girl would want to marry at her young age and not to a s*x maniac like me.

After finding out she was a virgin on our wedding night I was pretty surprised but due to my condition I don’t want to hurt her so I never made approach toward but this night I want her so badly.

I hope she forgive me… I can’t tell her, it will only put me in a more worst Condition than when my mom left me to the world.

🌺MR NICOLE🌺

I was in my house although doing some office file and it getting late before I receive a call from my in-laws.

📲What an important call
📲Just shut the crap, where is my daughter?.
📲Oh…you should know she is with her husband and not me.
📲I want my daughter back and I’m ready to pay you up.

📲I’m sorry but the contract says no money exchange.
📲Why are you doing this to me Nicole.
📲 Doing what.
📲Your son is a f**king s*x addict my daughter can’t be In a love filled with bitterness, I can’t believe I put her in such risk.

📲Mr. Justin you should trust me she is the only one that can cure my son
📲 She isn’t a doctor that gives treatment so stop acting with you got PTSD
📲Just give the time.
📲If anything happens to my daughter just know you are dead.

📲I’m doing some office work Justin can we talk later *I hang up and threw the phone away.
This is bullshit!!!!!

🌺 JABSON🌺

I was still Video chatting Daniella on my phone when my second phone beeped and the caller ID is Bryan.

“Who is that”she asked.
“Can I call you back bae it Bryan”I replied.
“It late why is he calling you”
“I need to pick it up to find out”I replied.

“Good night”She end the call and I pick up immediately.
📲I mess up man
📲What do you mean?
📲I hurt her again.
📲You force her
📲No…I was attacked by the gang again.

📲I’m coming
📲No we can just talk in school tomorrow it late.
📲No I’m coming
📲No it not necessary *What the hell Bryan cried?!?.

📲First thing in school tomorrow
📲Sure don’t tell Dad about this okay*he warned and I nod.
📲 Good night

he end the call but I’m kinda bothered. Bryan is a close friend to me and I understand is situation but there is nothing anyone can do about it.

It high time Martha knows about it and I think she is the only one to his solution because obviously he has a soft spot for her.

What is happening?

❣️ JOHN❣️

“Done boss”one of my gang member said and I smiled.
“Hope it was the right injection?”
“Yes sir”
“Great, Now let see who wins”I laugh deeply.

Bryan thinks he can ran away from us for so long but I will make sure he pays and that would be from his wife MARTHA.

Yeah I know he is married!! No one hides anything from me for so long because there is nothing I don’t know.
