The Conversation

Teacher:- what's wrong? Kofi: Our house is very small. Me, my mum, my dad, we sleep on the same bed. Every night my dad asks, 'Kofi are you sleeping?' Then I say No & then he slaps my face & gives me a Black eye" Teacher: To nite when your dad asks again, keep dead quiet & don't answer. The following morning Kofi comes back with a severe black eye again. Teacher:- My goodness why the black eye again? Kofi: Dad asked me again, Kofi are u sleeping? & I shut up & kept dead still. Then my dad & my mom started moving, you know, at the same time Mum was breathing erratically, kicking her legs up frantically & squealing like a hyena on the bed. Then my dad asked my mum, are you coming? Mum said, Yes I'm coming, are you coming too? Dad answered: Yes. They don't usually go anywhere without me so I said, wait for me, I'm also coming .....then the beating happened to me
