Do Not Repeat My Teenage Story

–Sola Sorinolu

I was accused of impregnating a girl when I was 18. I didn’t know the girl nor her mother who brought her to see my father. As a matter of fact, I wasn’t sexually active yet! Why would anyone want to ruin my life when I was just starting to live it? I thought hard about this. Then it hit me! My friends!

I had friends at the time who were already sexually active. There were times when I had to leave the room for them and their girlfriends. No one was left in doubt as to what transpired behind the closed doors because it soon became the next hot gist among us.

So I concluded that the girl and her mother must have thought I was an easy target because of the kind of friends I was ‘rolling’ with. After all, who would doubt any girl who made such a claim against any of my friends? But my father stood up for me. It was his stance that saved the family from the need for a DNA test. The mother came back few days later to apologise to my father and to inform him that she had found the boy who impregnated her daughter.

Dear Christian businessman, husband and father, take heed to your children’s friends and associations, more especially, your teenage children. Do not let your children repeat my teenage story. There is DNA test, of course. And I hope you know you are likely the one to pay for it.
