AROUND A FLOWERING TREE THERE ARE MANY INSECTS



Based on a true life story (Creative Nonfiction)

Oyina was the daughter of a very wealthy father. All her siblings were pursuing their different degrees outside Nigeria. Right from her Junior secondary school days Oyina had always been the best student in class. She was calm, beautiful and charming. She never spoke a hurtful word to anyone.
But in her senior secondary school days, things began to go awry. With the amazement that comes with seeing rain in a desert, we were amazed at the quick transformation of Oyina from good to worse.
Oyina's grades dropped, she would skip school for almost a whole term and whenever she appeared, she would sit behind with the 'bigger boys' letting them fondle her breasts and talk dirty to her.
It was only later on that we came to realize the cause of Oyina's change in attitude. A group of so called friends from church were the reasons behind the change. For years their bad characters had slowly rubbed off on Oyina. . .

Friends can either make or mar you, especially when they see you're doing well. Be careful who you call a friend.
