MY STRANGE NEIGHBOR 😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟 Written by Nicholas Stephen
The knocks kept coming repeatedly making it seemed like I was the only one hearing it.
The curtains drew opened by themselves.
After a while the sounds stopped.
I got up from bed, drew back the curtains and then continued my sleep.
All of a sudden, I saw myself in a strange dark place the woman was few distance from me she was on a dark cape.
When she came out from the shadows, she removed the cape and she was stark nãked. Some parts of her body were designed with chalk.
“Neighbour is that you…” I spoke in fear
“Ma is that you…” I shouted while withdrawing myself.
“Come to me my son…” I’m yours and you’re mine..” She voiced out. I could hear her reverebarate from the far end.
She whispered while coming close.
“It’s me. Your neighbour, the one that gave you water to drink… ”
“But you’re nãked… What are we doing here…”
I don’t know what came over me but immediately she came close I wasn’t myself.
I began to do things I never thought of doing. She seduced me with her strange powers.
We even had sex.
She finished and faded back into the shadows before I woke up.
I tried to get up but my whole body was weak making it looks like my my whole blood had been drained. When I turned my left hand felt something watery on my shorts. Inserting my hands I discovered that it was sperms.
Looking at the wall clock time was almost 5:15am.
I turned to Esther(my junior sister)to see if she had been observing me but she was asleep.
“Pheew..” I heaved a sigh of relief. I pulled my inner boxer and crept to hide it at the back of our TV shelf.
Then I cleaned the spêrm stains on my short pyjamas, reclined on the chair, and went back to sleep.
“Wake up. Wake up. What kind of stupîd sleeping is this…” The tapping became rapid and the sound was sounding like that of my mum. But still, my eyes were closed.
“Shedrack are you not the one I’m talking to?”
“Morning devotion you were absent. Why?”
“It’s almost 11am and you’re still sleeping…. ”
I managed to get up and remained silent.
Immediately mum left I collapsed like a drunk man.
“Go and put on your shirt let’s head to the market..” mum added.
I was still lying there.
“It seems you’re not ready.” Mum smirked.
“Yes mum.” She answered from outside.
“Esther where are you? dress up let’s go to the market..”
“Okay okay mum..”
“Shedrack are you sure you’re okay?” Mum questioned looking worried.
“Yes .. Yes I am.. See. Let me jug..” I abruptly faked a smile while jogging and putting on an act..
“Okay oo. But be very careful o..”
Immediately mum left with Esther, I began to stroll around the compound. The woman was in her window when I saw her. Not even a bra was being put on by her. Soliloquising and smiling me.
The compound was quiet because most of our neighbours had gone to work and their children had gone to school.
Due to fright, I changed course and began walking home.
She opened her door wearing a worn out dark gown. She started walking in my direction.
“Jesus… Jesus… Jesus Christ…” I grumbled, dashed back to the parlour. I locked the door and sat down panting profusely.
