“Baby… Hey! I’m done. Why did you stop scream -moaning? Go and bathe and don’t be scared, I didn’t pour the whitey inside you. As you can see, it’s on your thighs. At least, you can stop calling me a small boy. You were even shouting stop! I’m choking. I can’t breathe. If not that I covered your mouth, this is how my neighbors would have known that I’m playing harder than Messi”.
He stood up, stark naked and went to clean up in the bathroom , but she was still lying down there. He was beaming with smiles and talking while bathing, asking how she felt when he started hitting her from behind and laughing all to himself. All these while, he got no reply. So, he thought to himself that he had shifted her womb and he beat his chest in pride while trying not to be noticed by her.
He had sent his roommate to night class on negotiation, so he could have this lecture in privacy. He sure taught her a lesson but the lesson turned out to be another lecture. He went over to her and kissed her lips but she didn’t kiss back. He felt her heartbeat and it wasn’t there. His heart skipped three beats and paced. He checked her pulse with his fingers and immediately fears clothed him. She was gone, she is dead!
He jerked up and went away from her. His face blank, sweats exuding from every opening in his body, feet trembling. He placed his hands on his head and stamped his feet on the floor severally while letting out a still small cry. He had sexed a person’s daughter to death. He was just 23, a finalist and soon to be best graduating student in his faculty.
He was sure he had a bright future, then this. He couldn’t hold it as he fell to the ground and hit his head severely on the tiles, on a bid to steal his fear, but he passed out instead. He woke up in Jude’s laps – his roommate. “Jude she’s dead! Jude I’m finished”. His voice, like a little boy asking his dad for biscuits in a terrified voice. Jude asked him to calm down so they work things out, but he held onto Jude’s shirt and poured rivers of tears on it.
They thought about reporting to the police, but it would get their heads in and they may be caught ; so they dismissed it. They discussed throwing her into the river, but people would notice she got missing and she told her best friend that she was going for a sleep over at his place to learn Gross Anatomy very well as her exam was in two days – a carryover. They thought about staging up an accident, but she had no bruises, so the plan died a natural death. All their plans were counterproductive, so they decided to make it look suicidal.
He was in medical school, so he knew some drugs that are quite toxic to the cells if consumed in excess. So he went out that night, bought some drugs, mixed an overdose and injected it into her already dead system. He forged her handwriting and wrote a suicide note. With Jude’s help, they dressed her up and sent for her best friend who read it and burst into uncontrollable tears while they joined her.
The letter reads :
“Babe, I’m so sorry for writing this to you now. Depression made me do this and it is the only way to be free from this whole torment. Ejiofor really did his best to teach me, in fact we read all night and I even lied to him that I have understood so he could sleep cos he was apparently exhausted. But babe, my mates graduated last two years and here I am writing this same exam.
My dad already said he would disown me if I don’t graduate this year and you know he hasn’t been sending me money. My mum called me a lazy dullard and no one believed me. Instead of going over this, let me just journey to the unknown. Maybe I’ll find peace there. You remain my only true friend and please help me thank Ejiofor, he really tried. See you when you grow old girl. Best of luck from your Sussy la hot”. This were all facts about her of which she told Ejiofor because he was her boyfriend.
They took her to the mortuary. Informed her parents who didn’t stop blaming themselves for her death and finally laid her to rest. Ejiofor felt the pain and trusted no one at all. Whenever he had sex with any girl, he paid so much attention to their breathe and moans, he even stopped between intervals to ask if they were okay. He was scared of the unknown.
After the semester ended, they boys went on a fun night and deliberately got drunk except Ejiofor who was concerned about his last paper that may give him a C grade, courtesy to the little mistakes he made. Jude leaked his secrets to their drunk mates on their way home for he talked too much, though it all sounded like a joke and they didn’t take him serious at all for they know he was good at making silly jokes, it tormented Ejiofor who tried making him shut up but worsened the matter.
When they got home, Ejiofor deliberately pushed Jude from the three storey building while they were climbing the stairs, with the intention of silencing his one witness forever. Unfortunately for him, his neighbor caught him from her window and alerted other neighbors. Ejiofor was beaten up and taken to the police while Jude was treated but badly hurt. He lost his eyes and broke his spinal cord to the fall. He therefore leaked the secrets about the sleep over on a clear note.
On the day of their induction as physicians, Ejiofor was been sentenced to death by hanging. He died and Jude died too, few months after Ejiofor’s death because his injuries worsened and there was no money to fly him abroad for stem cell therapy. All these happened, because Ejiofor took an over dose of sex boosters to prove to Susan that he was a demi god in bed, during her first sleep over.
