NOVEL

Titled - Caught In The Moment

Intro -

This was it..the day they've all been waiting for..as a young girl of just 19 years of age..I had envisioned my wedding day to be on a beach with lots of decoration..twinkled lights and pearls on my wrist..I would want it to be towards evening where lights could been seen and glow beautifully..yes! That's my dream..No, I don't need much crowd..family and few friends would do; but that's a dream for age 25, I am just 19 and damn I love this guy David..my first love..the guy I willingly gave my virginity..he was just 21 and we are about to get married? What life would we live?
My father was a deacon..well respected in church..he took me as his pride..the apple of his eyes, I shouldn't make a mistake
"You just have to be perfect"
He often tells me like I was an angel without blemish..Dating any guy was out of the picture, I would squat all night if he dare catch me standing, talk less of even talking with any boy..but it wasn't my fault they always come after me, I was extremely pretty with my sweet, tiny voice that when I sang in church I would have to run home after service before my father see those guys asking for my number
How then did David come into the picture? the guy was too handsome with an equal melodious voice that sometimes I would insist he takes Solo in our choir group..we were choristers and I started crushing on him the moment he saved me from falling off stage during Christmas Carroll.. He was this gentle guy, even my dad loved him, so it wasn't an issue when my dad noticed we became friends
He was sacrificial and somehow stuck to my side..and when he asked me out, I agreed immediately; and then we started our hide and seek lovers game..we dated secretly for 5months..I had my first kiss on my nineteenth birthday and I felt I was ready..ready to give everything to him..
I invited him home for the first time when mum and dad had gone for their normal church meetings. I never knew he was a virgin too..we had that painful, blissful moment but my parents caught us Unclad..it was hell for me..I didn't care..it was decided then..my father would not tolerate immortality in his house..we have to get married
Now I stand staring at the mirror in my wedding dress..David had pleaded with me to give in..but I knew our lives still had a lot to accomplish..so I ran, I left him stranded at the altar..I have to find my life someplace far..my name is oluwatoke bisola..and this is my story..

Caught In The Moment

Episode 1

Unlike every story book I guess you've read..mine is a bit complicated..that it sometimes makes me cry and laugh alike.. Well as I earlier explained..I escaped..with the little savings I had..to lagos without directions..fortunately, I had my phone with me so I called up my aunty who stayed in lagos..my Aunty Naomi was not in good terms with my mum..I really wished I knew why..so I just went there with faith
I arrived there at 7pm in the evening,it had rained heavily, I was all wet and shivering..I was ushered in by my cousin bode..he was very tall and huge..I was always scared of him, even when my mom had always assured me he was kindhearted..that was her own view sha; what I saw was Goliath on earth
"Bukky..what is this? Where are you coming from? Where is your mum? Why did you enter the rain?"
Everyone called me Bukky instead of my full name. I had open my mouth, but the question was now more than one..so I was thinking which one to answer first..it seems she noticed my struggle
"Just go and change"
Great! The sentence she was suppose to say
"This way"
Tosin ushered me to her room
"You can change into anything you like in the wardrope"
She seemed nice..we were of the same age range, although we've never been that close because of our parents issues
Later that night I explained everything to my Aunty..she was really attentive and I prayed she believed me
"OK..you can stay for a while..but you would have have go back home"
I nodded in agreement..although going back home was the least in my agenda
My dream was to be a fashion designer..it was my dream since I was a kid..and I just got admission to Lagos state university to study art..I wasn't sure my aunty would want to sponsor me..tosin had gotten admission too. Fortunately to the same university
"I got an admission to Lagos state university too..back home"
I opened up to tosin..when she came back home rejoicing about her own admission"
"Really?! That's great..we would be roommates"
I feigned a smile..I wasnt too sure about that..within minutes she hurried to my Aunty
"Bukky.. It wouldn't be a bad thing if you both stay together.. But during weekend you would both help me in the shop"
My Aunty said
Wait! Does that mean am actually going to school?! I felt like calling home but I remembered I had broke my sim the moment I entered Lagos..
For a week everything went smooth..until one night when Goliath requested my presence in his room..oluwa help me..what does he want now?

Caught In The Moment

Episode 2

I entered his room and stood by the door, my legs were shaking..he laid down pressing his phone and acted like I didn't exist for a while..before he dropped his phone and sat up to look at me
"Why are you standing there? Come in. What are you scared of? Are you not my sister?"
Hmm..maybe it was not what I was thinking..I took a bold step and entered the room..but I made sure the door was left open..
"I just felt that you're going to school to learn the course I studied..so I should enlighten you a bit"

'Oga na you be the enlightener oh'...I thought..maybe it was a pure intention sha..I sat on the stool as he instructed..he brought out some textbooks and placed them on my thigh drew a stool close and sat opposite me..
"You know you're a beautiful girl".
Oluwa..it has started..I knew this Goliath had an ulterior motive..how does "I want to enlighten you" suddenly change to "you know you're a beautiful girl" within minutes, just like that. Immediately I started thinking of ways to excuse myself
"Uncle please aunty bought drugs for me today..am not feeling too well. Lemme go and take my drugs"
I attempted to stand up but he caught my hand and held me back
"What's wrong with you self..is this your first time?..you spoilt girl.. Just cooperate within minutes I'll be done".
Jesus! My heart raced..I believed my neighbours could even hear my heart beat..
"Uncle please..I have not done this before. I'm a virgin, please don't do this to me"
I had to lie..hoping it would convince him..but he had gone mad like my body was intoxicating him..
"Don't worry after the little pain you'll enjoy it"
He grabbed me and started kissing me roughly.. I struggled.. as he attempted to close my mouth I bit his middle finger with all the feminine strength I had..he screamed on top of his voice as his finger gushed out bleeding..but it didn't stop him..I wonder what happens to some men that their brain becomes blind to anything you do when they want to rape..He retaliated, slapped me and tore my gown. Heaven and hell helped me..heaven was that tosin and my Aunty rushed into the room because the door was still open..hell because my aunty added another slap to my swollen face
"So you want to accuse my son the way your mother accused my late husband"
Oh..so that was their issue..I was pushed out of the house that night by 10:45pm..tosin stole out and gave me #1500 for my tfare back home to Ibadan, only for Lagos street boys to steal my bag and my tfare..

Caught In The Moment

Episode 3

Have you ever slept outside? Like not in someone's house but real outside..in the open.. Open to both physical and spiritual attack..well I was in this position..I banged my aunty's gate continuously but it Never opened..I was more than scared..I stayed awake thru out the night. And promised myself I would run home the next morning..and the morning came my bag was snatched..my money and phone gone!
I cried my eyes out..until I even forgot how to cry self..and then hunger started..I couldn't just sit and die..I had always watched in the movies of how people survived in the streets..Only this time it was my movie. So I stood up and dust myself up..I tied together the part of my gown Goliath and torn..and then I started roaming about..or should I steal food..hmm nigerians would just kill me..there is something I can do..I walked over a pedestrian bridge..and from up there I could see young boys like myself making good use of the traffic jam..all they did was clean off dust from vehicles with small water bottle and a brush..just like that? And they got tips.. Well not from everyone but at least a good number..I hurried down there and pleaded with one of the boys to let me too..even if I was all dirty Already.. My beauty still helps a lot..I got 200naira! I rushed to the nearest mama put and satisfied my tummy first...what next?..I needed an urgent job..I attempted a car wash but they needed just guys..I got to a fast food.. But damn I was too dirty to present myself..they had a notice "sales rep needed..apply within" I went to the security
"Excuse me Sir"
With my tiny voice.. He was a young man but judging from his appearance I could read he didn't attempt going to school at all..
"How you dey?".
He replied.. Starring at me
"Plz sir I want to apply for a job here but am too dirty..can you help me with any cloth?"
He licked his lips continuously
Sometimes I would want to blame God for giving me this kind of beauty..but then I can only thank him..because I got the cloths and a long note sheet where I could write my application..
Fortunately the security alerted me that the manager was on his way out..I ran too him and burst in tears explaining heaven and hell to him..why I needed the job urgently..
"OK come and resume tomorrow"
My tears became intense
"OK OK..you can start now"
He stared and me with that surprise look. I know he must be wondering if I was from planet earth.
What I do know is..i am strong..and I would survive..

Caught In The Moment

Episode 4

Welcome back! As I earlier explained, I got a job..was I too lucky?
"Hi..am Annabel"
A girl same age with me welcomed me to the fold..it seemed she was the only one nice to me.. The others had that jealous look on their faces judging from the fact that I was given special treatment from the boss..he allowed me sleep in the girls room..bought clothes for me.. He had invited me to live with him and his family..but i was not ready to be victimized again..I couldn't tell if his intentions was pure though
"Hi..am bukky"
I replied her and offered a smile
"Wow your eyes are pretty"
She gasped and commented in admiration
"Would you two get back to work!"
Madam lizzy shouted at both of us, she was the supervisor..rumour carried it that she was the boss girlfriend just that since I came around the manager had been paying little or no attention to her.."but wetin concern me nah" I thought..she was beginning to get on my nerves..
"Annabel go on your knees now"
She ordered..what! How ridiculous
"Get me a cane"
She went further and lashed Annabel at the back yard..I tried to bear the screams..I was in charge of sales that day I couldn't leave the counter.. But this was too much..I bounced to her
"Madam please stop this"
I met her red eyes
"Are you mad?!"
She rage like a wounded lion..like we had an unsettled quarrel
"Madam with all due respect..i have not worked much but I believe it is not stated in the rules and regulation of this organisation that it is right to physically abuse any of the staff"
She stopped and faced me
"You dare challenge me?"
She raised her hand to slap me
"Don't you Dare"
I warned..she noticed the boldness in my tone and stopped..one thing my father had always taught me was never to be intimidated when am right
"Annabel let's go"
I picked her up and took her back to the counter
Later that night I was summoned to the manager's office where the issue was tabled..but it all ended in my favour when all the staff that witnessed the scene spoke out for me..the marks of her abuse was still visible on Annabel's body..she was suspended for a week..
Hurray! You would now say I am the hero right?! A piece of advice my dear readers..never be the hero..life is much more easier if you mind your business..
A week later Lizzy was back from suspension..she was calm and I was very glad for that..little did i know she had planned something big..

Episode 5
Later that night.. Lizzy, the manager and the securities marched into the ladies room where Annabel and myself were fast asleep..I had been with Annabel thru out the day so when I heard the accusation it was just ridiculous..
"You think I didn't see you when you took the money?" Lizzy said
"What?! Jesus! No o I have been with Annabel thru out o..Annabel tell them"
Well my dear reader.. People you trust most might just fail you..
"No oo..its not me and you"
She denied me flat.. To my face..
Before I could say another word..Lizzy slapped me
"Call the police"
She ordered
"No"
The manger protested..
He was sad and disappointed..
"Bukky pack your things and Leave first thing tomorrow morning"
I was not given a chance to plead..
"Bukky am sorry i was scared"
Annabel kept apologizing but of what use I wonder
The next morning as I walked out..Lizzy ran after me..
"Lizzy you know I didn't steal that money..its not fair"
She said something that took me thru all my hard times in life
"Thats it dear..life is never fair"
I starred at her devilish smile and with the hurt I made a Promise
"You would clean my shoes one day..this I promise you"
She laughed at it but I meant it..
I was determined to make it out there..it is now the survival of the fittest..i slept under the bridge for 3days..searching for a job to no avail..I wonder how it was easy to get the first..until one day I came across my dream..it was boldly written
"House of earl fashion"... A fashion house!!
I don't know how but I must get in there..
I dust my clothes.. I had to plead for pure water to wash my face..and then I rushed over there..
The security won't let me in..of course I wasn't presentable..what do I do?
OK I decided to wave at every car I saw going in and out of the house.. Some laughed and some stopped to give me money.. But no one could help me get in..
Until one stopped and I was beginning to think she was my saviour but she asked
" who is this pig"
I pointed at myself
"Me?"
She was actually asking the security why they let a pig stand at the gate of a fashion house..
I noticed they were three of them
But I have suffered sha..me pig?..
Well I won't blame them..I really did look like a pig.. I bodly approach them
"Shuuuuhhh"
The girl handling the steering shouted and waved me off like I was a fly
"Vodka come on now..she is a human being"
The lady sitting at the back seat corrected
"Chai God bless you sister
I blest her in my mind
"Although she smells so bad..abeg shift"
she concluded
ah, I took my blessings back..I knew I didn't really smell as they presumed, but with their expensive wears, of course I would smell to them

Episode 6

After they had mocked me to their satisfaction..they left strict instructions with the security to make sure I was metres away from the house..l felt like crying but I wouldn't let the tears drop..I had trek back everyday from my bridge home to the fashion house..it was really very far but I wasn't giving up because my dear reader..life doesn't give you what you deserve but what you demand..it was a week now.. I had arrived there again to try my luck when I noticed a kid running out of the house..I couldn't tell if the young lad was playing or crying but I could tell he was about to lose his precious life..a speeding car approached as he made an attempt to cross over..then I saw a woman rush out of the House shouting after the boy..there was no time to think if I would lose my life in the process..I rushed and drew the kid back..well it was rather too late for me..it was just a brush but the force knocked me off balance..that was the last I remembered..the next moment I opened my eyes I felt eyes all over me..men in white..
"God am I dead?"
I questioned aloud in fear..you won't blame me nah..my vision was still blur a little..and I was seeing people on white..
"Na die be that nah" I thought in fear
"No dear relax..you are not"
My vision became clear now..mtcheeeww..other were just doctors.
Thank God..minutes later a woman walked in with her husband as I noticed..I remembered she was the woman running after the little boy..
"Please my dear..name anything you want..is it money? Anything.. You saved my only son"
She was becoming remorseful..well I didn't mean to be too ambitious but I believe you know what was on my mind
"Madam..please just get me into the fashion house..I want to work there"
She wiped her tears and starred at my desperate eyes.. She looked back at her husband who offered a go ahead smile..
"Is that all you need?"

'Hmm..na you ask me o..'
I thought.. I didn't Want to look too ambitious but she left me no choice..
"And if you could secure a place for me to sleep in the fashion house I would be most grateful"
She smiled..I know she would be happy I didn't request to stay In her house.. You know how women like to protect their husband..
"OK..Clara is a good friend of mine..I can pull a few strings..what's your qualification?"
She was a bit disappointed when I told her I had nothing but my application letter.. She did ask if I would Like to be a cleaner since I didn't have a result to summit..I quickly agreed..

Episode7
Written by
Onyeneke Abel

every journey has a start right..and so I started work..as a cleaner in my dream world..when I was a kid..my vision was to be the star..although I didn't envision myself starting as a cleaner
"What is this girl doing here?"
Vodka the devil questioned with disgust and shock..
"She is the new cleaner..please treat her nice..now prepare for the show"
Madam Clara entered from behind to reply her..the house was exquisite..probably the most beautiful place I had encounter at that age..I could see my reflection On the walls..crystal clear..and the lights shone bright, of different colours..the split air conditioner was standby..the soft classic music..twas heaven on earth..I felt the rhyme..the atmosphere blended with me..I could feel it..this is where am supposed to be..
"My friend would you Clean and stop starring like a lost brat!"
Vodka screamed at me..there was other models in the make up room where I was cleaning..I wonder what her problem was..well it was none of my business
"Na she know Wetin she carry for head"..I thought
I watched with my cornered eyes as they applied make up to her face..mtcheeeww..I was even more pretty..
"Bukky..madam clara request your presence in her office"
My fellow cleaner called out..she was nice but I was just too wise to get too attached this time..judging from what I passed thru at the plaza..
I rushed to the office as directed..God the office was exquisite..I felt I should just remain there..but madam Clara eyes on me was really uncomfortable..
"How old are you?"
Abeg let me just tell everything instead of answering all her questions one after the other...she was quiet for a while before she asked
"Do you have any drive for fashion?"
God the question I wanted to hear
"Yes ma! Yes ma..its my dream.."
She smiled
"Next year there is a platform where models are given opportunity to created their dress style for recommendation..if you are interested create your own style..draw it out..and sew it.."
I smiled..but secretly..this woman is underestimating me..I was born with the talent..I do draw out dress patterns..gowns of any type back then at school that my mum had to stop me because I wasn't reading anymore
"Madam if you would just let me draw something for you"
She gave me that rookie look and later nodded to the idea..she handed me a piece of paper and a pen..I went to work..and designed a mini gown..indicating the colour to use below..
She collected it from me to see.

Episode 8

She remained silent as she went thru the pattern..I prayed in my mind like never before..she dropped the sheet, sighed and looked at me
"This is good"
I was about smiling..but then she continued..
"But..bukky..if you have observed well enough..every single model or fashion designer you see in this house strived to get to that position..it would be unfair if you are an exemption"
I was greatly disappointed.. My dear reader..expectations kills..in everything you do..never expect to much..
"I understand ma"
I turned to leave when I notice she was not saying anything else..
"But if I were you..I would continue designing these gowns.. I would give you your sewing machine and all the materials you need..but you have to promise to keep it a secret..I would have a room for you where only you would have access to..there you can practice"
My face beemed with smiles that my dimples became exposed..
"I see potentials in you little one..but before you step out there..you have to be prepared..I would assign a teacher to teach you how to be a model in secret..I want you to be this fashion house biggest surprise.."
I knelt down..there was no word to thank her to my satisfaction
"Ssshhh..remember its a secret"
I was forced to laugh..and she joined me..whao..what a relief..she handed me my drawing materials and asked me to see her later in the evening to know my secret training room..I was filled with joy..perphaps too much that I bumped into someone..
"Jeez am...
My tongue got stuck when I raised my head to apologize..like the moment stopped..his hair was curly.. He had that sexy eyes..the ladies know what am talking about..broad face and side beards..his smile..gosh!..was killing..he wore a tuxedo..a sparkling black Italian shoe..gold wrist watch and a pair of stlylish glasses which happened to fall off..
"Am so..sorry si..r"
He smiled and picked up the pen madam Clara had given me..
"Hi..am Jeremy"
Was I supposed to tell him my name?..he was still starring at me..I felt my legs would fail me..they were becoming weak..
"And you're?'
He asked when He noticed I wasn't saying anything..only God knew that I wanted to say
"God you 're handsome"
But instead my brain re-formatted and I was able to introduce myself well
"Hi am the cleaner"
God! I didnt mean that..how embarrassing..
