I was pacing around my room sweating profusely, lost in thoughts to the extent that I didn't realize my mom had been knocking on my door, she used her spare key to gain entrance into my room,
baby I thought something bad has happened to you, I was at the door for twenty minutes and you didn't respond,
I sighed out of relief because I envisioned mom scolding me but she wasn't,
Amanda you are sweating, why didn't you switch on the AC ,
I forgot to, (I lied )
darling you are acting weird,
mom there's something I need to tell you, but please promise me you won't tell Dad,
how bad is your confession dear ,
really bad mom. Alright I'm all ears.
She took my palms in hers while we sat on the bed,
I...I....i.. i stammered, I lost my new phone,
how, were you robbed at school, or did you drop it at the mall,
mom no I actually placed a bet on it and lost. Mom snatched her hands from mine and stood up in rage, how many times have I warned you to stay away from bets, how many?
Mom I'm sorry, I pleaded shaking in fear, I knew quite well that my mom's anger was terrible.
Amanda I raised you in a decent way, yet you embarrassed yourself like this, she stormed out of my room and I ran after her panting, mom please remember your promise not to tell Dad, she hissed at me and slammed the door of her room.
I sighed and walked back to my room, I had to finish my homework and thank God the burden of confession was off my chest.
Three days past everything was fine, mom kept her promise and didn't tell Dad, my siblings and I were in the living room eating popcorn and watching cartoon,
hi lovelies mom greeted as she entered the living room ,
Mommy we ran to hug her, how was school today,
fine mom we replied in unison,
Amanda I need you to come assist me in the kitchen,
I gladly obliged and went straight into the kitchen, because I loved helping Mom out in the kitchen, after cooking she usually gives me chocolate or cookies.
Weekends are usually tiring and boring, after cleaning the house, mom would force us to take a nap, Sunday after service we would either go to her friend's house or the park.
My mom is such a pretty woman, 5'6 inches in height, neither fat nor slim, she had long black hair almost reaching her waist, she wasn't really fair, she had pink lips and curly eyelashes, a teacher by profession, she actually taught high school students Physics and mathematics precisely, she is a goal setter and a loving mother, no wonder dad married her, he sure likes good things.
I was in my room that Sunday evening doing a research on my PC when dad walked in, my dad is a man of few words, he cleared his throat and sat on the couch opposite my bed,
Amanda how are you? I was taken aback by that question and I pondered in my mind didn't he see me this morning.
I'm fine dad, do you need something,
nope he answered still staring at me with his blue eyes, I looked at his face my heartbeat sped up,
Amanda you look nervous are you alright?
dad I think I'm great, I smiled reassuringly.
Amanda I tried reaching you severally during the week but your line was always unreachable or switched off, I forgot to inform you because it skipped my mind, why have a cell phone and switch it off .
Dad I lost it, I sounded nervous
no way Amanda I'm sure you are lying your eyes are exposing you, what! I said to myself how could my eyes betray me today of all days. I summoned courage to say the truth, after narrating all that happened, my dad was speechless he stood up and walked away, from the look on his face I could tell he was disappointed.
