Jamila - Episode 1

See all episodes here »

The onlookers will really think I am interested in what this young man standing in front of me is saying but seriously, I am not.

I will call it bluffing because they all say the same thing

"I love and admire you"

"I love you pass my mama"

Blah blah blah

When I felt that the time I gave him is enough I decided to leave.

"Uhhhhmmmm, sorry please I have to go"

I said and made to leave

"Okay, can I at least have your digits"

To be a good girl, I stretched out my hands and collected his phone

"This is my number, you can call me"

I said and gave him back his phone

He smiled contently and collected his phone 

"My name is Styxx" he shouted behind me


I walked away

My stomach churned

"Ohh" I groaned holding my stomach

"Its that boy that caused it"

I was trekking back home from the library hungry, ready to devour any food I see at home when he stopped me

I wouldn't have stopped 

My stomach churned again

"Ouchhh, I definitely need a bike"

I stopped a bike and entered without negotiating price. That's how hungry I am


"Mom, am homeeee???

I shouted calling my mom

Silence greeted me

"Oh, I forgot

. She will still be at the market"

I walked straight to the kitchen with the hope that something must be there for me.

The kitchen is neatly arranged, all the corners are spotless with no dirty dish lying around.

That's typical of my mom

Everywhere is always neat, she makes sure she imbibed that in me and my siblings which makes our house always spick - and - span all the time.

I opened the cabinet where mom use to keep food for me

I carried the food straight to my room.

After eating I slept off immediately, without clearing my plates.

Yea, that's me. I sleep besides my plates after eating

I guess that's my bad habit, but don't judge me yet.

Let me tell you a little about myself

My name is Jamila, I am 22 years old and the last born in family of five

Unfortunately I am the only daughter, my brothers spoilt me silly. Always at my beck and call

Everything is so perfect in my life but one thing keeps bothering me.

My project work

I am in final year, about to get my bachelor's degree in counseling (to major in marriage counseling). 

I need an original paper work to submit in order to graduate.

I totally don't know why I choose to be a marriage counselor, maybe the emotional stress my mom passed in the hands of my father.

"My mom suffered a lot that I determined to make sure no woman passed through that again"

"Arrggghhh, now where do I get a special topic and work that will impress my supervisor.

These where the thoughts in my mind before I entered into the lands of beautiful dreams.
