Sofia Regans

The bell rang signifying it was the end of class. I picked up my bag and connected my earpiece listening to Shayne’s song.

He was the most popular song artist and he was highly respected in the country. I was one of his fan. I was soon engrossed in the music and started dancing.

“Hey Sofia”. My friend Tina called
“Hey”. I greeted
“Guess what?. She screamed excitedly.

” what?”. I asked

” Shayne will be coming back to the state”. She said screaming
” really”. I asked.

” yea, you will have to watch it , it will be shown live on television “. She said

” oops”. I said , you will have to gist me tomorrow.
She nodded

I was sad, we don’t own a television, I was so poor…

” let me introduce myself “.
I am Sofia Regan , I am 18 years old and a finalist in a public high school. I stay with my mother and Little sister. My dad is late….

My mother is a cripple having lost the ability to walk because of an accident. She is a weaver and she use the little money she gets from weaving to cater for us……

My little sister Bella is 9 years old , she is my gist mate and still in elementary school. I did all odd jobs in order to support my family..

I love listening to music , it helps me free my mind from worry. Shayne is my favourite artist, he is so cute and has a great voice ….
I got home and found my mum and sister outside crying..

” what is wrong “. I asked
Just then I noticed our loads were outside, I sat down on the ground and started crying…..

” when will all this suffering end?”. I asked myself.

I stood up and ran to the landlord house, he lives a stone throw from our rented apartment.

I went on my knees as soon as I saw him

” please sir, give us a month, I will pay you the rent”. I pleaded

He looked at me and smirked

“Next month?, I can bet my life you won’t be able to pay even if I give you a year”. He said
I bent my head in shame, he was kind of right, even if I was able to gather the money from my odd jobs, other expenses will arise.

” please sir “. He pleaded
He walked towards me and bent down

” Sofia , you are a beautiful girl”. He said caressing my face”.

I stared at him speechless
” if you agree to date me, I will make sure you and your family are comfortable “. He said

” sir, I am still a little girl “. I said

He looked at me assessing me
” stop saying that, with this your great body you will make any man fall”.he remarked smiling

He leaned towards me and was about to kss me when I gave him a slap

” what”. He screamed shrieking in rage

He gave me a thunderous slap and I winced in pain. I stood up in anger

” go to h.ell”. I cursed
He scoffed

” you , your demented sister and your crippled mother should get the h.ell out of my house”. He thundered

I ran off with tears pouring down my eyes….

I got to the house and my mum was talking to a neighbour. She was beaming happily

“Sofia”.come here, she called as soon as she saw me

I walked towards her and greeted the woman

“Mrs Anna has agreed to allow us stay in her farm house for a while “. She said smiling
I turned toward the woman
“Thank you ma”. I greeted
” it is alright dear”. She patted me and left….
We soon settled in the farmhouse and arranged the little stuff we had. We really did a lot of cleaning because the room was littered with chicken dumplings….

I went outside to sit after dinner, I was staring at the sky listening to Shayne’s music. My little sister came to join me

” Sophia “. She called
I looked at her
” I don’t like this place “. She complained

I smiled

” don’t worry, all will be alright “. I said
“When?”. She asked
” very soon”. I said
Very very soon…………

I am really feeling for Sophia, I pray all will be well with her.
