cave tales

Wow? is this for real or is it that I am seeing things? I know this area has mountains and all but a cave? I asked glancing excitedly at Toluse.

” Of course it’s a real cave Bosola; this village has lots of them. If we move further down you would see more.”

“Wow, there are some very intriguing things about this school. This is so cool, but we are not entering right?” I asked seeing as he was trying to enter the cave.

“Yes we are Bosola, that’s where we are having our talk.”  I shook my head vigorously, making tsk tsk sounds with my mouth at the same time.

“You expect me to enter this thing?” I asked gazing at the low opening at the foot of the rock that loomed over us.

“‘Yeah, the place is cool. You will like it.”

“Unbelievable”, I muttered wondering what it was that had made me follow him blindly; I thought of how I should be back in the hostel, preparing for Sunday service and what my Mom would think if she knew the things I’ve been up to in just twenty four hours.

“Bosola, don’t be afraid, you are safe and I promise you that I will be a gentleman.”

I smiled and  said; “that’s not what I’m afraid of, I’m used to being around boys. My fear is the kind of things that may be lurking in the dark corners of this cave.”

“Don’t worry about that, we use this place daily.”

“Really, what for? ” I asked still standing at the mouth of the cave.

“A lot of things, some of the guys come here to relax, some when they want to skip classes and they don’t want to be found and a host of other things. What I can assure you is that the caves are perfectly safe.”

“Okay then, but you go in first.”

“No problem”, I watched him bend as he entered the cave and holding tightly to the back of his shirt I followed him in.

Glancing around the cave as we entered, I could see it was true that the cave was frequently used. The cave was cool, not as dark as I expected and clean. There was a mat spread on the floor, an unlaid mattress and a small stove and cooking utensils in a corner.

“This must be pretty illegal right? I’m sure none of the teachers know about this place or you and your friends would have been in serious trouble.”

“Actually a few teachers are aware, there is a lot you would still find out about this school and my span of influence if you stay close to me.”

“Okay ooo’’

“I come here a lot, mostly to relax”, he said stretching his frame on the mattress

“It’s nice” I replied.

“ Bosola, You have such beautiful eyes, do you know that?”

“Thank you” I said softly sitting on the mattress and crossing my legs.

“I am hoping you would be assigned to my class; that would be really cool”

“It’s not possible, I’m not in J.S.S 3”

“What Class are you in? ”

“J.S.S 1”

“That’s very surprising, considering your looks. That means you are one of those girls who look more matured than their age. ”

“Not really, I’m thirteen; so let’s just say I had trouble moving from one class to another throughout my Primary school years.”

“Shame on that school, I’m sure the school wasn’t able to match up with your intellect.”

“Perhaps”, I said grinning.

“Not to worry, you won’t have issues here because I will coach you.”

“I will really appreciate that. Where is the school for the senior classes though? ”

“It’s not so far from here; it is a twenty minute walk if you take the bush path.”

There was an awkward silence after that and I saw his Adam’s apple bob up and down intermittently in what seemed to me like a nervous gesture,

He wringed his hands for a couple of times and probably realising that I was totally comfortable with him came and sat beside me.

“You have such a beautiful skin” he said, cupping my face in his hands

“Thank you’’ I replied. 

I knew what was coming; I think I even knew before we left the stream and I wasn’t surprised to find myself ready for whatever he had in mind. Besides the fact that I wanted to deal with Slappy, I also needed a boyfriend while in school.

He kept looking into my face and I glanced up to look into his eyes, what I saw amazed me, pure animal lust and I smiled softly to myself thinking of what Slappy’s face would look like if she could see us.

Barely five minutes later, our bodies had seem to come to an understanding and were already making a beautiful music of their own. I would have been ashamed and appalled about how easy I was if I wasn’t already very aware of exactly who I was. Mum in her holiness believed that I was possessed but I have always known I wasn’t and that I was just a girl who tasted the forbidden fruit too early courtesy of Demo my cousin; the one that had been living with my parents even before I was born.

I wanted to concentrate on what Toluse was doing to me but I couldn’t, I kept seeing Demo’s face. He was the first and as at that time the best I ever had. None had come close and certainly not the boy that was panting heavily on me at that moment. I was still lost in my thoughts when he shot out of me as if pursued by a demon and slammed his body on the bed in an attempt to make an early withdrawal.

I would have laughed if I wasn’t so irritated. “Toluse, you should have asked if I was safe, I am on the pill.”

That was my best kept secret. Something I thought would have been divinely revealed to my puritanical Mom if she was truly as holy as she tries to make us believe. Demo had gotten it for me after I started seeing my period. I appreciated it too, it was better to be safe than sorry.

 “You’re on the pill?” “You are using birth control?” He asked, his voice sounding somewhat shocked.

“Yes, I have been on it for like a year now; it was prescribed for my menstrual cramps’’.

“Okay”, he said although there was still an amazed look in his eyes.

“Bosola, “Please, I would love for you to be my girlfriend”.

“Really” I said, although a triumphant smile was already curving my lips,

“Don’t you have a girlfriend”?

“Yes I do but she is nothing like you and that particular relationship died the moment I met you.

“Okay, then”. I replied, “if that is what you want”.

Toluse then kissed my cheeks, “thank you goddess” he said softly.

 “You are so beautiful and sexy but you know that right” he said

 “I know but I still love hearing it”.

“Are you going to the fellowship” he asked, scratching his head

“I don’t have to go” I replied.

“Good that means we can make love again and again and since I don’t have to come out when coming it gets better and better” he said pushing me back on the bed.

 I laughed at the poetical sound of his words and closing my eyes, I imagined my Mom in church raising holy hands to high heavens obviously unaware of what her “possessed” daughter was already getting up to in the school that was supposed to reform her.


I got to the hostel four hours after I left with Feyikemi that morning, I could hear voices singing in the school chapel and was glad the dormitory would be relatively deserted. I got into my dormitory and walked briskly to my bunk, I needed to shower immediately, the stickiness between my legs was beginning to irritate me, I was also quite hungry having missed breakfast and wanted to take my bath and come back to take some cornflakes.

My housewear was on its way over my head when I felt myself being shoved against the wall, I didn’t have to be told it was Slappy.

…….to be continued next Monday
