Jinxed by ChiomaMee: 5:49pm On Jul 02
Chapter 1


Life in the ghetto is usually unbearable. Overcrowding was common. Everywhere was filled with the stench of musky old decaying flesh of dead rodents. Trashes on sidewalks. Young children playing in the compound looking like they haven't had a bath in quite some time. It was an area the police are afraid to visit. Where if you don't belong there, you should not be.
She smiled as she thought of how agitated her sister would be if she finds out about the surprise she has for her. Walking excitedly as the pack of food dangled in her hand."TFC" she read aloud. She has always heard about the only fast food in Ifira community. All thanks to Teejay, she was in possession of a package from there. 'What an achievement' she thought. "Chioma, go happy today ehn". She walked hastily to her room which was located directly opposite the ghetto canal. The odour that often emanated from it was enough to choke man to death but they were all used to it. It had little or no effect on them.
As she walked, her slippers made flipflop sound as it met with the floor till a pair got stuck in the mud. She bent to pick it out of the mud but found out that the mud already sucked it more than she thought. She pulled harder and alas! the strap slipped out of the hole that linked it with the sponge."chai! how will I do this one na?" She asked rhetorically. She wiped out the mud that covered the hole, put the strap head and brought it closer to her mouth to pull it with her teeth."Iyamma", she grimaced as she tasted a bit of mud in her mouth and spat. Chinasa dropped her mud filled slippers and quickly made way through to her home.
"This girl backie don dey develop oo" she heard a guy say to the other guys."me sef don dey notice am, I no just one talk". Another guy responded as he took a long drag from a stick of Benson as he pocketed the pack and lighter. She didn't hear the rest of their conversation as she already took few steps ahead the place they sat. She wasn't ready for their trouble. She bent her head to look at the little balls that were growing on her chest and remembered how they had abused them. She winced as she thought of the pain she felt as her little oranges were fondled by the merciless molesters. She could still feel their palms. She could feel how they squeezed her. Thank God for mama Tobi, they would have raped her.

"Chioma" she called out to her sister."come and see something oo". There was no reply from her sister's end. She wondered where her sister was till her attention drifted to the unusual sound she heard. Someone was sobbing. Was that her sister? Why was she crying? Where's she? She traced the sound and yes, it was from the other room. She raised the curtain which served as a demarcation between the two rooms to find her sister on the bed, unclad.
Chioma broke into tears as her sister cupped her into her smelly arms. She didn't care about the smell. Her confidante has come and that was all that mattered.

"What happened?" Chinasa queried "why are you Unclad? Did he do it again?" Chinasa asked as her sister nodded in the affirmative. Chinasa's eyes bugged out as she stared in shock. She was sad and angry. She closed her eyes as she tried to conceal the tears that was about to betray her faked confidence. She clenched her fist and stood up as she pushed Chioma off her arm. She walked in a macho way, ready to take off anyone who stood in her way as she made way out of the house but stopped halfway as the image of Segun flashed through her eyes. His ugly face, muscular body weakened her. How was she supposed to face the giant? Of course, she wouldn't dare unless she was ready to have a share of his member.

Chapter 2

She wore her black veil attached to a white coff. She put her chained cross, made a sign of the cross and picked her bible from the dressing table. She turned around to check herself for the last time as she wrapped her rosary around her wrist. Even in her nun outfit, she looked beautiful. She had a shapely figure. She was wasp-waisted with a glossy skin. Her velvety eyelashes, pencil-thin eyebrows was worth falling for. A sculptor couldn't have fashioned her pixies nose any better. God must have been showing off when He created her.
"Emeka" she called out to her driver who stood by the bonnet staring into space as he was lost in his thoughts."Emeka" she shouted, jolting him back into reality. He scampered, searching for nothing in particular.

"What were you thinking?" She asked as she walked majestically towards him.

"No.... Nothing ma" he replied almost immediately.

"Nothing? Anyway, that's your problem. Let's move" she said nonchalantly.

Sister Glory never cares. He wished she pestered him to share his problem. He would tell her how he needed money to take care of his sick mother. He wondered why she pretends to be caring to outsiders even when he knew se wasn't close to being nice. He hissed silently as his eyes met with Glory's veil through the front mirror."pretender" he muttered under his breath. His eyes met with hers as she was also looking towards the mirror. He quickly turned away his eyes as she thought of whether she heard him. He silently prayed she didn't hear and if she did, he hoped she wouldn't ask him to repeat what he said.

"Were you saying something?" She asked

"N... No ma, I was thinking about my life ma" he stuttered

"What's up with your miserable life" she smirked and hissed

He wondered why she hated him so much. She still retained him and never deducted his salary. He thought her hatred towards him would affect his salary but it never did.

'She's my employer anyway, I'd just do my job and keep my life away from her. I'll bear my cross, may God help me' he thought as he drove, concentrating more in the road. He thought of listening to the radio to distract him from his thought but decided against it. Not when the bossy lady was in the car.

** happening at the same time**
Glory thought of how cruel she has always been to Emeka. She knew for sure that she treated him badly but that was the least of her bother."Every man deserves to be treated like the dog they are and Emeka is never going to be an exception" she thought.

Chapter 3
**Ifira community, Abruka**

"Chinasa, bia oo, come and see wan tin" Toke shouted, panting heavily as she ran towards her friend's house.

"Who dey chase u na?" Chinasa questioned inserting a chewing stick into her mouth.

"That fine sister don come oo"

"Who?" She asked removing the chewing stick in her mouth.

Toke scratched her head looking around as if searching for something. "You no remember? Wey dey wear cloth like reverend sister?"

Like she heard a shocking news, she dropped the cup of water in her hand unconsciously. Her life would finally have a meaning, she thought to herself while on the run.
The last time Glory visited Ifira, she had chosen two girls who she promised good life in the city. A total number of twenty-one girls were arranged before her. She chose two girls at random---Chinasa and Nancy. No one knew her criteria of choosing. As she said,"I'll choose as my Father leads".

"Aunty, welcome I think you wee nor come oo" Chinasa said, smiling sheepishly.

"Well, now I'm here, let's go" Glory commanded.

"I have not pack my tins oo" she said looking surprised.

"You'll get everything you need over there" Glory said, making Chinasa face brighten again. Her face fell with sadness all over her face but Glory didn't notice as she thought of her sister. She had lied to her.

Chapter 4

To Chinasa, the journey seemed like it would last forever. She had never traveled so far. Few hours into the ride, they were held up in traffic. In no time, everywhere became disorganized as a result of some hurry-hurry drivers trying to maneuver through the traffic. The sound of honks from different riders pierced into her hear that she had to cover her hears with both hands. She looked by her side to tell her how much she hated the situation. She shook her head pitifully as she wondered how Nancy was able to sleep with the disturbing noise. Glory and the driver seemed not to be bothered. They were probably used to it, she thought.

They managed to get through the traffic and in no time, they were at their destination
. Chinasa tapped Nancy anxiously "Nancy, sleepy sleepy we don reach oo" she said as she shook her in a bid to bring her back from wherever she has gone to. As if poked by something, Nancy rose abruptly pushing Chinasa out of her way to step out of the car.

"See house oo" she exclaimed with her mouth opened. Chinasa on the other hand didn't seem surprised, it only brought back ugly memories.

"Girls, follow me" Glory commanded. They followed her, walking carefully like they didn't want to hurt the floor. They marvelled at the magnitude and beauty of the house. It looked exactly like the one they see in mama Siru's television. The wall had four phases. Each face with colours that complemented the phase opposite it. They walked past the dinning table that would occupy six people, behind it was a water dispenser.

"Aunty, this televisure is big oo" Nancy uttered looking surprised.

"It's called plasma television, not televisure" Glory corrected."it's night already, no more questions. I'll prepare dinner after which you'll go to your various rooms and we'll have a brief meeting tomorrow.

Chinasa tossed restlessly on her bed. She had lied to her sister." Chioma, I'm going out to find something for us to live on. I'll come back tomorrow" she had told her sister. Guilt engulfed her, she was angry with herself. Glory had told her she wouldn't be able to see her sister until she was done serving her purpose. What purpose was she talking about?? Her sister's thought flashed through her mind again."I'll find a way to see her" she assured herself. She rolled over and eventually fell asleep
