BROKEN SOUL 1, 2, 3. POWER, MONEY ARROGANCE
She sat down quietly at the school auditorium waiting for the lecturer to arrive. One thing about
Ada, she hated being late and that’s one of the main reason why she choose to be at the lecture
hall as early as 7:30am even though lectures begins at 8:30.
She gently brought out one of her medical textbooks and began to read it just to consume time.
She hated being idle just as the saying goes “an idle mind is anything devils workshop.
However, just as she was beginning to enjoy her readings, a deep masculine voice interrupted
She looked up to see one of the prettiest face ever
‘pretty??? ‘….. That’s sound too awkward for a boy right?
But Hell no!!!!!….
He’s so handsome that even Ada found herself starring stupidly at the stranger.
He snapped his fingers at Ada and she came back to her senses. He has being talking for over
5minutes now and it’s seems that the girl was absent minded.
It pained him, he has not being ignored by anybody before
She said awkwardly cursing herself silently for behaving so stupid and civilised before a stranger.
I was asking you which department you are…. ”
He said calmly as he sat beside her. He observed something, shes naturally beautiful.
” medicine ”
Ada said quietly starring intently at her book.
” mine is Law….
Have you done that GST assignment…? ”
He asked just to start a conversation with her.
I just resumed today ”
” why? ”
” it’s not something to talk about”
She said with a tone of finalty.
He was surprised!…
No girl had ever shut him off before like she just did and he hated her guts instantly.
Who does she think she is????…..
He’s the governor’s son and he has everything he desires – physical attractiveness : which made
girls flock around him, money , political status, intelligence, popularity – name them.
Anyways, that’s how Poverty stricken individuals behave, he thought otherwise,
“Michael…. Where have you been?..
I have being calling your line but it’s switched off ”
A very beautiful girl with make up came over and pecked his cheeks. Her name is cynthia, his
” am sorry love…
I was in a hurry ”
He said with a charming smile.
” Who’s she? “..
She asked narrowing her eyes at Ada.
” I don’t know…
Some ugly fellows I just met now ”
He said rudely and they laughed.

All these while, Ada pretended not to have heard what they just said.
But what he just said now broke her heart.
You’re disturbing me ”
She said as calmly and as politely as she can.
” shut up!!!!…
Go to your Poverty stricken environment and stay.
Your poor father is not the owner of this school ”
Cynthia snapped rudely at her.
It tore and wounded her soul at that moment.
Yes!.. Shes poor but that does not give them the right to insult her father in that manner.
The man is late for christ sake and he deserve some respect.
” thank you ”
She said when she finally found her voice.
She took her bag and went to the extreme endless of the lecture hall admists their mockery and
She managed through the day’s activities and branched to the library on her way home. There,
she read few textbooks on the topic she was taught that day, did her assignments and dashed out
of the library. She forgot to take her drugs earlier while coming to school in a bid not to be late to
class. Today had being pretty hectic for her and she remembered that her doctor warned her not
to stress herself much. She sighed heavily as all these thoughts crossed her mind.
Then, without looking at where she’s going, she bumped into a figure.
She cried painfully rubbing her forehead.
It was so painful that she felt like fainting
” stupid girl..
Next look before you while walking
You lack moral etiquette ”
Michael scrowled at her.
” look Who’s talking.
Impolite brat like you..
Idiot with Seven heads ”
She said rudely.
” what did you just said? ”
He glared at her as his heart burned with rage and bitterness
” you heard me right,
Radio don’t say things twice ”
She sat arrogantly
He’s not the only one that can be arrogant and rude.
Adaolisa has it imbibed in her genes
She’s just being polite and showing the fruit of labour of her poor mother.
” do you who you’re talking to?
As in do you have the slightest ideal who I am? ”
He asked rudely
” it’s none of my business…
I guess I have to go now
Have a Nice day ”
She turned to go but he drew her back forcefully
” Apologize now or I will make your life miserable ”
He commanded ruthelessly.
” that will never happen…
You know what? ”
She smirked in satisfaction attend the look on his face.
” what? ”
He yelled at her
” talk to my back! ”
With that, she left him in shock and surprise.
” Ada!….. Adaolisa!!! ”
A male voice called from afar. Ada turned swiftly wondering who on earth ever knew her name in
this school. Her puzzled face turned to smiles when she sighted Uchenna, Her classmate and
best friend back then in secondary school.
” Oh!.. Uche.. Long time.
How are you? ”
She asked with smiles as they hug each other happily
” am fine Ada
What are you doing here?
Don’t tell me, you’re one of us already? ”
” I am oooo…
My dear, Am in department of medicine ”
She said and Uchenna congratulated her happily.
He too is in department of engineering. They had being friends since primary school and
coincidentally from the same village Umueze.

Continuation of chapter 2
For the past three weeks in the University, Adaolisa had been very lonely. Her best friend is her
books and library. No friends at all. Mama had insisted that she stay off camp. She doesn’t want
anybody to stress her precious daughter Emotionally as that could be very dangerous to her
Now that she had met Uchenna, she’s pretty sure that her stay in the University will be wonderful.
Just as they were chatting away their boredom, Michael sighted her from afar and smiled
Time to take revenge.
He walked majestically to where they are and was very surprise to see her cousin brother
He called to be sure of what he just saw.
” Mike…. How far nah? ”
I dey ooo…. My brother, long time ”
Michael said as he tried his best to speak pidgin. He’s born and bred in America, that’s really
difficult for him to speak.
They hugged each other happily.
” uche… Is he your friend? ”
Ada interrupted the reunion
” not only that, he’s my cousin ”
He said happily
” that’s good ”
She faked a smile and Michael smiled back wickedly.
” Mike Meet Adaolisa my childhood friend,
Adaolisa Meet Michael my cousin bro… ”
He said happily
” no need for that… Am already familiar with the arrogant idiot ”
” unrepented fool ”
Michael jeered at her
” it’s okay guys…. No need… ”
” I will be on my way now.
Uche see you not time ”
With, she left the two men staring confusedly at her.

After the first semester exam, Adaolisa passed all her courses with the aggregate grade point of
Mama was very Happy when she broke the news of her success to her. She had traveled down to
her home town to see her mother. Everybody was so happy to see her.
She had added alot of weights these past six months and surprisingly her asthmatic attack had
Mama’s joy knew no-bounds
The following day, she had woken up early to do her usual morning chores since she’s already at
home but mama had already done that.
She’s in the kitchen cooking a delicious porriedge yam and vegetables for breakfast. Something
that Ada had missed these months away from home.
“Good morning mama ”
She greeted happily
” morning Ada m
How was your night doktor m… ”
Mama said in English and she laughed heartily. Mama will never cease to amaze her.
” Adaolisa… O gini? ”
She queried in Igbo meaning….”what is it Adaolisa?”
“nothing mama ”
She said trying to supress her laughter.
” go and get the plates…. Breakfast is ready ”
She said and hurled the pot down with her bare hands.
” super mom ”
” whatever…. Hurry up before it gets cold ”
She said and Ada hurried inside the house to get the plates for their meal. She’s really her
After breakfast that day, she remembered that Michael is hosting his birthday party and Uchenna
had begged her to come. If not for Uche, she would gladly stay back. That bastard Michael
doesn’t deserve anything good
She took her time and visited the Saloon, fixed her hair and branched to the market on her home
and bought a pair of low-heeled silver Sandal to match the pink floral dress she planned to wear
for the party.
At exactly 6:00pm, she showered, wore her clothe and applied a little make up on her already
pretty face. She waited patiently for Uchenna to arrive.
Continuation of chapter 3
Mama had gone to the neighbouring to see her elder sister and would be back the next day. At
first, she insisted that her daughter won’t attend the night party. She had a hunch that something
bad will happen to her but she reasoned that as long as Uchenna will stay with her throughout the
party, shes in a safe hands.
After what seems like ages, Uchenna later came and took her to micheal’s house which is not too
far from her home.
Michael was so surprise when he saw Ada that he found it so difficult to take his eyes off her. In
order to get himself occupied to avoid any dirty thoughts or feelings, he drowned himself in
The Music was blasting her ear drums and Ada found it very difficult to stay there, she doesn’t
know how to dance and Uchenna is nowhere to be found. She can’t stay here otherwise she might
faint. It’s too day for her health. She tiptoed out of the party hall and walked down the hall way of
the mansion without having any idea where she’s heading to. It disgusted her to see people
making out in the corridor. She quickened her steps but was caught up by drunken micheal.
“where are you going to? ”
He asked staring lustfully at her
“none of your business”
She said rudely and tired to go but he caught her wrist and drew her back forcefully.
“am talking to you, don’t you dare walk out on me ”
He glared at her
” get lost ”
That infuriated him and he carried her up in a bridal style forcefully.
” put me down, you fool ”
She hits his chest but he carried her to his room and locked the door. He began to take off his shirt
and reality struck on Ada.
What’s he planning to do to her?
She was scared, he advanced towards her, grab her and threw her on the bed. She screamed
with all her might but nobody is ready to help her. There in that room, he tore her clothe and
That day marked the beginning of her sorrows
After 3weeks, she became pregnant.
Her dreams of becoming a doctor was crushed to dust. Poor Adaolisa

” Dad please am begging you… don’t do this to me… I can’t marry that dirty girl… I love cynthia not
her… Please daddy ”
Michael pleaded in tears before his father. The only person he feared most in this planet earth.
” am sorry young man but you’re getting married to Adaolisa this weekend ”
His father said as he busied himself with his news paper.
He had gone for conference meeting in abroad for barely one month only to come back to receive
the shockest news of his life
His stupid son had raped and impregnated poor innocent girl.
To Governor Okenwa, the best way to cure the madness of his son is to marry the girl for him.
I don’t love her, Am too young to marry ”
He sobbed quietly
” my friend shut up there!!!….
You’re too young to marry but not too young to do adult stuff…
Lazy boy ”
He glared at him
” Please dad…. ”
” Enough of your nonsense!. You must marry her and that’s final. ”
He said in a tone of finalty.
” what about my education? ”
He sobbed ignoring his last statement.
” no hindrance to it… ”
His father said and took his news paper upstairs to avoid disturbance for his lousy sons and wife.
Saturday came, Adaolisa dressed in a beautiful wedding dress looking so angelic Adorable.
Tears filled her eyes as she stared at herself in the huge wall mirror. She wished that her mother is
there to see her beautiful daughter. Unfortunately mama had developed High blood pressure
when she heard about the news of the rape and died days later. Ada couldn’t understand the
reason why life decides to be so unfair to her. The worst happened few weeks later after the death
of her mother. She discovered that she was pregnant for that monster. Her world crumbled to
dust. Her dreams of becoming a powerful surgeon broke to pieces .
When she couldn’t bear it any longer, she decided to abort the pregnancy but because she’s
asthmatic. BROKEN SOUL
Continuation of chapter 4
She decided to abort the pregnancy but because she’s asthmatic, Her doctor warned her of the
consequences. She had no other option than to inform micheal’s parents about it. Even Uchenna
was aware of it, he condemned Michael for his actions but the little devil showed no remorse
about his deeds.
Sorrowfully, she said her wedding vows and wedded the monster behind her tears. The innocent
looking guy she once admired is now her day nightmare . He took her virginity forcefully and
ended the life of her precious mother prematurely.
Dear reader, tells me the reason why she should ever be happy in her life
Definitely nothing again will make Adaolisa to be happy. To Ada, life is nothing but ocean of
sorrows and bitterness. Today, she’s going to start a life a monster and her everyday nightmare .
She wished that she was never born.
However, Michael was very sad through out the wedding ceremony. He admits that he made a
mistake but he’s not ready to marry yet. All he ever wanted is to spend his life with the woman that
he loves and cherish not some random urchins from the gutter. He has therefore promised himself
to her life a living Hell
He will make her to regret her very existence in this planet earth
