An Excerpt Of The Ones Called Dogs by Divepen1(m): 9:54am On Aug 04, 2019
That Sunday, Usman would have refused to attend church, but that was the only place he got solace. So, he followed her. She refused to make him join the other teenagers in their church. At some point, he felt like telling a leader or a pastor what he was battling, but she placed him on a short leash. When they returned from Church, she hurried to the door of his room and stood in his way. He withdrew from her.
'Usman, you're... I have wronged you', Omo pleaded.
Usman released his breath. The thought of making her manipulate him again scared him.
'But I need you to know that I need you. I'm a deaconess in my church. You can't tell anyone anything about us', she went on her knee and edge towards him.
Usman shrugged. He couldn't tell anybody anyway because no one seemed to believe him.
She moved nearer again and looked up. He withdrew, holding tightly to the bible in his hand. However, the cushion stopped him, granting her the opportunity she needed to be in front of him.
Her handbag was now beside her on the floor. 'I have this sickness. It's not me...'
‘Please, leave me.’
 She burst into tears. ‘I want to be good. You know...'
Usman stared at her and felt like screaming at her, but she was the one paying his school fees and feeding him.
 'I just want you to know. I can't go out to have sex. People will suspect. But I need you to help me'.
She placed her hands on his shoulder.
' Leave me,' he shouted as he jumped out of her reach. Tears streamed down his face.
'Usman?'
'Leave me.'
'Not now. Usman, not now. You cause this to me. I don't know why I can't help being around you', she pleaded and crawled to him.
'No…No,' Usman warded her off.
'I'm not like this. I met you, and I became this', Omo cried.
'Please, Aunty Omo, I'm not doing,' he pleaded.
After going back and forth for a while, she stopped in her track. Usman felt lucky. She had stopped pleading, and that excited him. She rose and sighed. 'It’s true. Maybe you should leave'.
'But my school,' Usman countered.
She shook her head. 'I can't help it.'
'No...No…' Usman said in horror. The thought of leaving would really cost him his education.
'You have a choice,' she said. ‘Stay, give me what I want or leave and stop tempting me.’
Omo grabbed her bag off the ground and left for her room. Usman ran after her. She turned to him, repeated the statement, and slammed the door in his face.
Usman swallowed hard as he moved to his room. He never knew he would ever face such a problem. At least when she forced him, he could pick aside. But staying back to fulfil her desire just didn’t seems right.
Some minutes later, Omo came knocking.' Your food is in the kitchen'.
Usman sat awhile till he was sure she was gone then he rose and placed his ear on the door, listening for any movement from her. When he was sure he could go out, he sneaked out. A covered plate was on the cabinet.
'That's your food,' she said behind him, making him jump in fear. 'Don't be afraid.'
When he lifted the place, it was light. He didn’t need a soothsayer to tell him that the plate was empty.
Stirring, he saw a devious look on her face. 'You'll eat good food when you're ready for me. Usman, the devil is using me, I know. But I need to escape. And until I escape, I need to fulfil my urge if not, I'll go bloodthirsty. Remember those vampire films, I'll be thirsty like I am now. I should have gone out with men. But I'm a deaconess. I'm a child of God. I'm a Christian. They are thinking of making me a pastor very soon. How will it be that the world would now have to see me as someone sleeping with men?'
Usman gently placed the plate on the table, 'Sleep with them. I won’t tell Uncle. I'm tired. I just want to go to school'.
She bent forward, and tears drop down her face. 'I'm also tired. Don't you see desperations in my eyes? I am... This desire must have been hiding here before, but I refused to see it. But I think God is using you to help me notice its presence. This devilish desire is here, and you have to help me'.
'No… I will go hungry', Usman shouted as he rushed out of the kitchen.
'I won't force you. I won't rape you. I want your consent. It's like every other habit, I'll get over it', she called after him. ‘I don’t want to rape you anymore.’
He turned at the door. 'No… I'm not doing'.
'Why didn't you leave? It's because you're enjoying it'.
Usman bit his lower lips. He didn't know what had gotten over him, but he seemed to agree with her. He could have left. Maybe he was enjoying it. Perhaps, he was just deceiving himself.
'I'm not...' He said but stopped himself then marched out of the kitchen.
