Agatha 2

Agatha woke up to find herself in a different land. She knew she had fallen into the river but she didnt think she survived. She looked around were she layed down and it was all shiny and glitering, jewelries everywere, things she had never ever seen before in her life. She tried to get up from the ground, when she heard someone speak behind her. She turned to see who had such a wonderful voice. She had never heard any one speak in such manner before. There stood a slim tall girl, she was the most pretiest girl agatha had ever seen. She had a  long hair, beautiful smile, and a glowing skin, she looked like she had had her bath in an oily pool filled with glitters.
 Agatha seemed confused. she wondered were she was. She was led by the girl out of the field were she layed. Agatha felt lost and amazed at what she saw. Life had never looked so beautiful  and colourful. There were beautiful flowers that smelt wondeful and she kept turning around and around, she had to see every single thing she passed. Finally they got to a very big gate, it seemed like the entrance to somewhere people were never allowed to leave.
As the gate opened, it was the most amazing sight ever. Agatha  stood with her mouth wide opened as she saw a large amount of people with smiles on their face all to welcome her. She didnt seem excited at first because she wasnt sure what they were doing, but as she walked in. She was hugged by almost everyone all paving way for her as she walked pass. There were roses in the air, every were glittered. Agatha, felt welcomed, even if she did not know anyone.
Suddenly, there was silence as agatha felt movements like water was flowing, then she realized she was inside water. From affar there appeared a very beautiful, spotless woman with a very long hair. She swam gracefully like she followed a rythm. She had the a tail of a fish desgined with jewelries on each scale, glowing so bright that agatha closed her eyes. She had never seen anything like this ever before in her life. She had heard about mermaids as a folk story, but she never thought they existed.... She layed down on well knitted mat made from the leaf of a palm tree. Everybody bowed down to her as she smiled staring hard at agatha........ to be continued..

Agatha

In a distant part of the world, lived a family. They had left their previous settlement in search of greener pastures back to their home land. Like every culture had their ethics and beliefs, this particular group of people believed in re-incanation. It was said that, if a family member had died from an accident or any unusual circumstance, he or she would come back through the birth of another child. This could come from the family relation or from another family. They strongly believed in it and ensured that when such child is born he or she wouldnt die again through the same circumstance of their previous life.
Agatha had grown into a very pretty girl who everyone liked. She was a little baby when her family had moved back home. She loved what their society had grown into and was looking forward to learning more from the outside world. She had written an exam that would qualify her into entering the higher secondary school and was awaiting her results.Born into a family of six, she was the the third of them all. She had two older ones a boy and a girl and she had three younger ones, two girls and a boy. Agatha was a loving girl and her presence always put a smile on the faces of people.
It happened sadly one day,as she had gone to  the stream as usual to get water when she heard the voice  of a fisherman singing a song as he paddled his boat into the bigger river for fishing. He sang sadly and she wondered what had caused him so much sadness. As he passed by, she stared at him for a while before taking her eyes away. She fetched her last bucket of water and prepared to leave, when she heard a loud scream from the river side. Startled, she ran into the stream to see from a different angle into the river so as to help whoevere it was. Her bucket turned over, and all the water poured out .It rolled in to the stream and was floating away.  She had peeped but didnt see anyone. Turning back to her bucket, she saw it far into the stream,she jumped into the stream and tried to save her bucket. But it had gone to far for her and so had she. At this instance she had no control she struggled hard to swim but she didnt know how to. The stream flowed into the river  so fast rendering her helpless and weak. Nobody was around to save her not even the fisherman. Agatha struggled to save herself  but it was too late and so she drowned.
Night had come and she was not back home.Her mother raised an alarm alongside people that had seen her going to the  stream. This search went on and on, it was a terrible loss to the people as, Agatha was still not found.
Finally, after on week, someone ran into the mourning village screaming that Agathas body had been found at the bank of another river in a different village. Villagers, and everyone that heard this was full with fear and nobody wanted to go close to the body. The river had nothing flowing in or out of it, it was called the Grandan river, house of the marine goddess.

'staying away from guys'

Those days our parents had very funny and unrealistic ways of warning us about certain things. In the case of us girls getting 'pregnant' hmmmm. That word alone was TERROR. My mum would say, 'dont hug or shake a guy because you will get pregnant' 'dont play at certain places or ways with guys because you will get pregnant'. My friends mum told her that, if she stays with a guy in the dark and he touches her 'bambam' then she will get pregnant and she would have Aunty Julies baby (the neighbour) sucking her small breast. That scared her and she never played with any guy in the dark. Another said her mum told her to stay away from guys when she was on her P because if any should shake her hand she would get pregnant. Some other friend said her mom told her not to move at all with guys or be their friends if not she will get pregnant. Hahahahahah, Mothers were sure very funny then. Am sure so many people heard their mums say other funny stuff to them about guys. Then, we wouldnt dare come or offer a hand shake to any guy who had his hand stretched. Then the fathers had theirs, 'if you get pregnant dont you dare return home' if u get pregnant i will disown you and your mother if she begs me' if you get pregnant i will beat the hell out of you till the baby comes out!' Chaii a lot of scary words at that time, and then you start to imagine, what if i actually do get pregnant, were will i go? No more comfort like what i have, no more school,no more feeding or extra money for shopping,no more friends and the baby...... All those thoughts sure scared me.
It was this fear that made some girl panic for three months. Imagine you leaving constantly with the fear of being pregnant not having anyone to talk to, and not even having the chance to check if ur actually pregnant.... 
Now this chick met a guy at  the gym. They got talking no names exchanged though, but they seem to connect alot. Now, young girl desperate to explore but still hearing her mothers warning at the back of her head decided to try a little. After the gym, they both got really in the mood and they start to smooch and kiss and you know fumbling and all. She knew she had gone to far when the guy tried to stick his hands in her panties. She quickly told him to stop and she went home.
As she got home she smiled as she went to bed remembering how good she felt. But the next morning she woke up with serious fear as she recalled her mums words. A month went by, and she began to feel fat and and her breast according to her felt funny. She felt like throwing up after a meal. Young girl began her journey of worries, she became so concious of herself, she found her self thinking constantly of what shame she would bring and how her fatheer would disown her and how her baby would  be a bastard since she never saw the guy again. She would constantly be on the internet checking symptoms of pregnancy and how people still see their periods while their pregnant and how the baby kicks. She compared it to what she was goin through and to her the symptoms were the same. Nothing could change her mind, phsychology was playing serious tricks on her. She was pregnant. The baby kept kicking making her tommy pain her constantly. This went on for three months, she was having sleepless night and she wasnt meeting her gtrades anymore. 
At the end of the third month, she couldnt take it anymore,she was a troubled young girl. So, she went to the school nurse to do a test, she begged the nurse to please make sure everything was confidential and not even the next nurse should know. it was funny because the result showed negative. Still she wasnt satisfied, she said the nurse was not being truthful because the baby was so restless and keept kicking and turning, So therefore she wanted her tommy scanned. All this was besides the constant begging she added anytime the nurse passed buy.
'Your not pregnant ms' the nurse send convincing her that she wasnt. With a sigh of relief for the first time in three months, young girl slept and woke up and the kicking baby was no longer kicking. Every symptom had dessappeared!!! YEAH RIGHT!!
 Well, dont blame the girl, i thought she was really silly toooo!!! Am sure many of us had such distressing moments....... courtesy of our parents lol.

chatterbox: Am Backkk....

chatterbox: Am Backkk....: "Hi everyone, sorry for the long while before this new update. I have been busy with the youth service and asusual camp was horrible but fun ..."

Am Backkk....

Hi everyone, sorry for the long while before this new update. I have been busy with the youth service and asusual camp was horrible but fun aswell. Thank God its over now.
  Anyways, have had alot of stories and i have come up with alot of them that i would love to share with all of you. Hmmmmmm, latest i had while at work was the woman at Ekiti who gave birth to a FROG! That story scared the hell out of me. When i saw the pictures, i couldnt help but decide to wanna share it with everyone, just incase u havent heard or seen. Only God knows the beginning and end of that womans pregnancy. At work people had their own opinions, majority said it was witchcraft! Well am still in shock,because that kind of pikin no be wetin God they give people. She had that baby in her for 13 months....... The baby they said had to bE disposed to avoid the mother who was unconcious from seing it. I would have attached the pictures but NO, its not a friendly one. So you can google it and see for yourself.
  It was this gist that led to another gist told by one of my bosses. He said while he was a child, there was a time in his village when two sisters were having a fight. he said the senior accused the junior of always gossiping about her and also ruining her sexual relations with her numerous bfs. She said this was so because everybody says shes prettier than the younger one. While fighting, the younger one was quiet and wouldnt reply to her older sister. All she said was 'sister leave me oh, leave me oh'. Their mother wasnt around and so the neighbours tried to stop the fight  but to no avail. The senior one beat the junior one and gave her a mark on her 'so-called' ugly face.
   'Now i will see how this your face will allow you talk in public' said the older sister satisfied with what she had done. For some reason the younger sister sat out side till it was dark. Her mother had come back and begged her to please come in as it was already so late for her to seat outside. She refused and sat there till daybreak.
   Few months later, the elder sister got pregnant. Parents were upset but at that time nothing much could be done other than accept the child. Also at that time, they would hear the cry of only God knows what from deep inside the bush. The villagers including him were very worried about what the sound was. Some said it was a bush baby, some said it was a bush pig, some said it was a wild dog. People said alot of differrnt stuff. The pregnancy began to grow, it grew really, i mean really really big. People were beginning to wonder. At the ninth month the belle was already to heavy for her to carry. She was in so much pain. Then came the tenth month, twelve, then the fiftheenth month. By then the villagers were already consulting and giving her things to eat so as to induce labour and reduce pain but nothing was working.
  The younger sister would see her and laugh, 'you never start' she would say.The sound was getting closer everyday and she was in so much pain. Finally the native doctors were called and they performed their rituals and while she was put to sleep the strange sound was sounding so close now. Suddenly at night she screamed saying 'its coming out,its coming out ohhhh' she was rolling ripping off her cloths screaming calling her mother to take the pain away from her. After few minutes, the 'baby' was born and instantly the pain stoped. But evrything and everywere was quiet, it was a strange baby,half IGUANA half human. However the cobination nobody here cared to ask. The distant sound was now present. According to him, while the sister was outside the night of the fight, she had seen an iguana. Whatever ensured between the both of them, nobody knows......
  Hmmmmmmmmm! What a story. Bottom line is eveything in this life doesnt just happen. There is always a reaction for every action. The frog baby didnt just show up. But we shall all leave our doubts to God who knows all and sees all.
