TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE by Moshood Avidiime

Episode 01.

Mama usually told me stories about how my father had left us, shortly after I was conceived.

She usually told me how she’d had to work her back off, to make sure I amount to something great in life.

I have, and I know beyond every reasonable doubt that besides God, I owe Mama everything I’ve come to be and achieve in life.

She has been the true definition of a “super woman”.

For everything she’d done for me, I’ll FOREVER be indebted.
.
Mama have done very demeaning jobs just to put food on our table.

She’d had to swallow her pride to beg at some point, just so the balances of my school fees could be paid.

She’d had to starve, pretending she’d eating to her fill, just so I can eat the little we had.

Food that was always barely even enough for me.
.
I am Mama’s only child.

I am her only friend.

She never remarried.
.
Mama usually took me down memory lanes.

She usually came up with these sad reminders whenever I’d supposedly done something wrong, with the intent to probably keep me in check.

They were usually aimed at guilt trapping me.

It worked, EVERYTIME, until I got married and then it seemed like mama’s “BEGOTTEN SON” had gone ROGUE.
.
I think Mama have been seeking for more and more attention lately.

So much attention that even though Tricia appears cool right now, if I don’t do something to curtail this before hand, it might escalate into something “home breaking”.
.
Mama could just pick up her phone in the middle of the night to call me. To tell me that she can’t sleep.

Most times, she’ll then be needing me to sing her to sleep.

Mama could call me just to tell me that she tried flushing the toilet, but it is as though what she’d dropped down there is stronger than usual, hence the reason she’ll be needing to wait for the WC to refill and then flush again.
.
I’ve had to juggle between attending to Tricia (my wife) and making sure my mother doesn’t feel abandoned.

Trust me, it is tiring.
.
No matter how hard I think I am trying, Mama will always complain that since I got married to Tricia, it has been as though she (Mama) have become a ghost.

“You don’t care about my wellbeing any longer, Greg”. Mama will often times, say to me.

Every of my explanation to make Mama understand that I have an “immediate” family member now who needs attention too, have only incited more hate speech towards my wife.

I’ve tried countlessly, to make Mama understand that marrying and needing to spend time with Tricia, with my wife, does not necessarily translate to forgetting I have a mother in her and knowing to do good by her.

I’ve countlessly tried to make her understand that she is not in any form of a competition with Tricia and the earlier she understood this, the earlier she’ll stop seeing her as a rival but all of these, fell into deaf ears as well.

And then there is Tricia, my wife.

To be continued…
