Sally Island 4

Paula was a single mom with two teenage daughters living on Sally Island. Her two daughters Ono and Ini were a bit too rebellious, being that they had no father figure, they didn't come up the girls with the finest character on the Island. Paula on the other hand worked hard to keep food on the table for the kids always wearing a frown off the stress that comes with raising bad children, and needed help in getting things done but couldn't afford the extra help from the professional house keepers on the island. One day, a friend who she have been complaining to about the need of an affordable help came up to her house with a little homeless girl he found on the streets that needed a home, the story wasn't really clear to Paula, the tattered looking little girl with a long old plaited hair almost locking into dreads was gazing at Paula in a pitiable manner, trying to make her see the need for shelter she really needed. Paula easily came off as she really wanted to help the poor little girl, whereas It was like exactly what She needed, someone she can easily shelter and on the other hand, help her with some house chores. 


The little girl happily moved in with Paula, she needed a roof over her head at all cost. Being an orphan in Sally Island wasn't easy, the Island wasn't paying attention to anyone. Too much partying and fun having. The citizens of the land weren't concerned with what lies beyond the waters surrounding them, neither do they care about the next person past them on a needful street. As far as there were fishes in the water, plantain in the farms, wine on the palm trees and coconuts in the forests, they had all they needed. Just a few valued education, it was basically the foundation they needed to be able to communicate with the visitors that came around once in a while. Paula took the little girl to the wooden empty store house behind the house. The store house was so old, it was already falling apart. It was a home for old boxes filled with old dirty clothes and the family pet cats playground, wasn't too bad the little girl thought, at least she has company of cats and a place to rest her head at cold nights. Paula called her Eve. 


The next day Paula woke Eve very early, before her kids were up, Eve was handed over the broom and was made to clean, especially after the grown ups. It wasn't much pain for Eve because she at least now had a roof over her head. There wasn't even much to sweep since there were no trees around the house or shedding flowers, just a little garden close to the wooden fence separating the compound from the neighbor's. Just that Ono and Ini were always littering the compound with banana peels the boy next door usually brings her once their mom steps out, wearing very short wears walking around the compound like they had unseen sexual motives. Paula had warned her daughters to stop stepping out especially since their last experience with a strange being at a local beach party on the Island. 


Ono the eldest girl had been invited for a beach party. Ono liked partying a lot, drinking and boys. As soon as she was done secondary school, partying, boys and wine was all she concerned herself with. She couldn't even cook any kind of meal neither could she read a paragraph out loud without stuttering. But Wherever she heard there was a party, she was there. And since Sally Island was a little island, it was easy to get invited to a party since she was a pretty girl. This particular party, for the first time, she took her younger sister; Ini with her. It was a girl's party at the beach and most times when it's a girls party, the boys are less and the girls much. That wasn't the kind Ono loved, she liked them boys plenty, to make things a little hard for her, The few boys that were at this particular party were very concerned with drumming than they were concerned with dancing with girls. That's what happens when boys come to a party where they jealous girlfriends are waiting for them to make a foul move. Ono really needed to dance with a guy, but none was free to dance with her, they focused seriously on their drumming. 


It was beginning to bore Ono as she danced alone on the sand with other girls. She couldn't show off her seductive skills, which was one of her many tricks. She ignites her excitement most with seducing boys or men, which led to her usual nickname 'sweet sixteen'. It was generally undisputed that she was the best at what she does, but today there was no free guy to exhibit her harlotry skills on with pomposity. Somehow within the crowd, She managed to spot a guy. A young fellow, averagely tall and handsome, a bit sweaty and unkept. It appeared as if he was coming from the farm only that he was carrying a bucket of water on his head instead. He didn't look like he was a citizen of Sally Island, he was astonished with the sight and the  thrills of a beach party. Someone who grew up in Sally Island wouldn't see such a scene as much of a new thing. But with the expression on the lad's face, he was excited with what he was seeing, it's either he was new or a house help that wasn't allowed to go out, Ono wouldn't care, to her, all guys are guys. Somehow she spotted him, exactly the kind of guy she likes. The naive and the virgins, she likes taking the responsibility of introducing the novice men to the joys that comes with laying with a fine woman. This was Ono's kill, she's been hungry for this.
