Strange saga – Season 1 [Episode 1 – 4]

They lived in GRA , the family house, not that I
was surprised, Serena was yet to resume so I
had decided to go visit her at home to fill her in
on the happenings at school, Rebecca was
writing her resit exams so my room was usually
empty. I looked again at the address she texted
me to be sure I was in the right house then went
to the gate to ring the bell. The gateman opened
the gate and peered at me, he was an elderly
man with an orange and black uniform
“Na wetin you want?”
“I’m looking for Serena”
“Say who you be?”
“Emilia, her friend, she’s expecting me” he sized
me up
“madam nor dey see anybody..but make I call
am” I rolled my eyes as he shut the gate again,
seriously. Five minutes later he opened the gate
and directed me in. The house was a typical
duplex with a large compound area, recalling her
father was a politician I wasn’t surprised at the
structure, Nigerian politicians were known for
looting money to live lavish lives. I hoped i was
finally going to meet the parents. There was a
maid who directed me to Serena’s room but
those were the only lives in the house, it was
very quiet.
“Dr Osazuwa told him to leave the class but he
refused, i’ve never seen Victor so adamant” we
had been gisting for an hour now, Serena was
laid on her bed while I filled her in on the
happenings at school
“So what happened, did he get any punishment?”
She asked
“Yes he was told to call his parents or be
reported to the HOD”
Serena laughed ​​​​”He should have just
left, it was just a lecture missed”
“Yea..you should come back, we have missed
you”
Serena scoffed”No ones missing me, they all
wish for my downfall”
I gaped then”I missed you”
“You don’t have a choice, your my best friend”
This was the second time she was calling me
that
“I am?”
“Yeah, you the only one who’s been with me all
through this, my other friends are busy with their
lives”
​​​​​”I’m sure they care but your
gateman said you not seeing anyone”
“Yeah, I just feel they are fake,do you know
Trisha slept with my boyfriend, I couldn’t believe
it, I know he’s a pig, but my friend ”
I was tongue tied, I didn’t know what to say to
her “I can’t resume till I drop the crutches, most
persons can’t wait to say cripple to my face”
“Lol why would you think that, I’m sure they all
wish you well..”
“They dont, you ll be surprised how much they
wished I had died”
I was surprised at the reality of life, here was
Serena, Popular, Rich with all the luxuries of life
yet she felt alone, it made me realise again that
life was empty without God
“They don’t have the love of God in them, you
shouldn’t expect anything less”I said wanting to
seize the opportunity to tell her about Jesus
when her brother walked into the room, he
looked surprised to see me, he was wearing suit
so I figured he just came from work
” hey sis, how you feeling?”
“I’m better, now Emilia’s here to keep me
company”
“Yeah I can see that..hey”
“Hi” an awkward silence, he raised a bag
“I brought you icecream”
She clapped her hands in glee, now I knew why
she didn’t want to resume school, he excused
himself and left to change. When I saw him
again he was in the kitchen talking with the
maid, they both turned and looked at me and
went silent
“Uh..Serena needed water”,I said, the maid
opened the fridge and brought out a chilled
bottle and gave me
” Are you staying for dinner?”she asked
innocently, I had planned to leave soon so was
surprised at her question
“Uh..no”
“You should, I ll drop you off” he said, maybe I
should have said no, but I didn’t want to be rude
again.
We sat in the dinning table to eat and not for
once didn’t I wonder again about the parents
“Where are your parents?”
They looked at me then each other, she
continued eating while he cleared his throat
“They..they on vacation”
Meaning he was no longer in office, I decided to
leave it at that as we ate the delicious fried rice,
the dinner was awkward as even though he kept
talking with his sister we kept meeting gazes,
the ride home was worse, I kept playing with my
fingers while he put on the radio, then reduced
it..
“Can I ask you something?”
I nodded, anything to break the silence
“What can I possibly do to make you mine?”
I gulped, my heart started pounding , I hadn’t
expected that at all
“Sean I told you..”
“I can’t stop thinking about you…trust me, i’ve
tried”
I closed my jacket on me as I was suddenly cold,
I blew out a breath
“You haven’t tried enough” I said, he looked at
me then packed, I looked at him surprised
“Can we go out tomorrow?”he asked
“No, we talked about this” was he gonna bring it
up again?
“Why you so afraid of me, or you just want me to
suffer, am sure you happy am begging”
” Don’t sound like I’m doing this on purpose.”
“you like me too..you just playing hard to get”
“I’m not..playing hard to get, its never gonna
work between us, we are worlds apart ”
“You think you’re better than me right, because
you are a Christian, won’t you even give me time,
did you become convicted in one day?”
I couldn’t believe we were having this
conversation, he would never see the light and I
didn’t want to waste time arguing
“Please..take me home”
He turned ahead and drove off, not sparing me a
glance.
I decided not to go back there again, but it was
weekend and Serena begged me that she was
bored, when I got in the house I saw a girl
wearing a t-shirt and coming downstairs , she
was pretty but i wondered why she was naked
“Hey..who you?” She asked
“Is Serena in?”
“Shes asleep, maybe you can come back
later”she said,
“I ll wait” we eyed each as i wondered who she
was, Sean came from the kitchen, saw us then
“Chanelle this is Serenas friend Emilia”
“Oh..ok” she pulled him with her towards the
pool area, I stared in shock.
I didn’t mention it to Serena who was clearly
awake, we decided to play a game after I gave
her my notes for photocopy as she planned on
resuming on Monday, Serena took me to the pool
area where he was swimming with Chanelle, I
wonder what he wanted with me when he had a
girlfriend,
“Hey Serene, the water is soo cool, you should
get in”Chanelle said
“She cant swim with one leg”Sean said, Serena
hit her brother with the walking stick but he
dodged
“You should have just died, my life would be so
much better” he said
“I make it better you moron”, I laughed liking how
they played as I remembered my brother David
” well what about you, you have two legs” Serena
said
They all looked at me”I can’t..I can’t swim”
“That’s so weird” Chanelle said swimming away
I looked at her, yea, it was weird.
I helped Serena pack for school then told her I
had to go
“Why dont you just stay”
“Tomorrow is Sunday, I have to go to church”
“Yea church, thats true, why dont you stay and
we ll go together?”
“I dont think thats a good idea”
“Why?”
I didn’t know why Serena always wanted me in
the house, like she was playing a game I wasn’t
unto, if she did know I wasn’t comfortable in the
house with her brother in it she didn’t show, it
was a bad game and I knew if I didn’t leave soon
I would get burnt.
“I’m sorry, I can’t stay”
“Ok let me tell Sean to drop you off”
“Can I just take a taxi?”
She looked surprised, I sighed, it was the last
time I was coming anyway
“ok”I agreed, I waited in the sitting room for
Sean to get ready, I decided to look at pictures, I
saw two portraits of the parents, then saw a door
leading out, opening it, I was faced with
darkness, I should have gone back but I was
curious, with my phone flashlight I found the light
switch, it was a studio, with lots of canvases,
paintings, I looked at the first one and it was just
splashed painting, I never did understood art, but
the next painting was deep, there was fighting
and war, with people dying, the next was about
Jesus eating with his twelve disciples..
” I knew I’d find you here”I turned, “let’s go” he
said hand on the light switch,
“This is yours”
“Go figure”
“They are beautiful”
“Yeah”
“Why would you draw about Jesus if you act like
you don’t know him” he was silent, I decided to
drop it and went towards him so he could put off
the light
“You dont know me dont act like you do”he said,
yeah, I guess he was right
“But I guess you curious enough to want to”
“I dont like you like that”
“Liar..” He said as he trapped me against the
wall”your heart is beating so fast, I know you
asking God why you want an unbeliever, Im just
wondering why you fighting it” I pushed him
away
“I ll become a Christian”he said” I ll do whatever
you want, I’ve never felt this way before Emilia”
“It doesn’t work that way, I won’t be deceived,
you have your pick of girls, why would you want
to be the object of my temptation?”
When he kissed me, I knew I was gone
“I guess you being jealous is a start” he put off
the light and went out.
