MY MISSING RIB
A STORY WRITTEN BY BRIGHT DANIEL
Thelma wore a gown while Celestina wore a pair of jean trouser and a tight yellow T-shirt. She stood closely with Thelma. One of her legs was raised in a way it stood on her toes, and one could see her buttocks pumped out, as well as her breast. She stared directly into Thelma’s eyes like a hungry lion monitoring her prey.
“I already know that your name is Stella but i still want to know who you really are” Celestina said.
“Please, my name is not Stella but Thelma” Thelma replied.
“I don’t get you. I thought Steve introduced you as..”
“He only mistook me for someone else” Thelma interrupted and turned back to the window.
“And who could that be?” Celestina took another step forward too.
“My twin sister”
“You have a twin sister?” Celestina asked but Thelma kept quiet. “Where is she?” she added, yet Thelma remained mute. “I’m talking to you!”
Thelma gradually turned and said, “It’s a long story”
“Then make it short!” Celestina’s voice became high.
“You talk as if you have something against me”
“I have nothing against you, but i will when you cross your boundary. Excuse me” Celestina flung her buttocks out of the room as Thelma stared at her.
Steve turned from the window when Judeson entered the room. Both hugged each other warmly.
“Guy, I’m so happy to see you” Judeson disengaged himself and shook his hand in addition, then sat on the bed. “What really happened? One time we heard you had a plane crash, another time, you disappeared, and another, you were kidnapped”
“Guy, i had a plane crash, i disappeared and kidnapped too” Steve also sat on the edge of the bed.
“Guy, I’ve suffered”
“How did it happen?”
“It’s a long story”
Steve narrated his story on how he spent a week on an unknown land and successfully escaped with Fred and Thelma who he thought was Stella. Judeson became marveled with his hands folded after hearing the story.
“So where is the other twin, Stella?” he asked.
“Guy, i don’t know” Steve replied and stood up. “And i must find her” he added.
“But why would the other twin lie to you or hide her true identity?” Judeson also stood up.
“I still don’t know” Steve replied then Judeson remained quiet for a while with his face down. He suddenly looked up at Steve and said, “Guy, i sense problem”
“Problem?” Steve looked at him too.
“Yes, from your story, i believe you love the girl Stella”
“I.. i.. developed a strong feelings for her” Steve began. “Even since i noticed she was the one who ran back to her dying father, i feel incomplete. I feel.. feel.. like part of me is missing..”
“Then she’s your missing rib” Judeson interrupted.
“Yes, i believe so. So what problem are you talking about?”
“Do you know that Celestina has interest in you, and i believe why Thelma lied to you is because she also has an interest in u too. Do you know what that means? Trouble!” Judeson concluded then Steve remained quiet staring at him.
Bernard met Justice looking disappointed in his room. So he quietly took a seat.
“Justice, you are not looking good. You should be happy with your new job, why this mood?”
“Faith has also turned me down too” Justice replied.
“Are you serious? She may be pretending. Try again, from what you told me, that girl is very good. You can’t afford to lose her”
“I want to quit”
“Quit? Not now guy. Listen, try her much more than you tried her sister. If she loves you, u won’t even stress yourself much” Bernard encouraged him then admired his outfit. “Guy, go find me one green bottle” he stood up rubbing his stomach gently.
Justice gave a weak smile. “You should have waited for me to receive my first salary. Anyways, let me take you out” he stood too.
“Now you’re talking!” Bernard shouted happily.
Mrs Henry met Faith in her room lying on the bed and reading a book. She stood at the door staring at her with her hands folded. When Faith noticed her presence, she closed the book and said, “Mother, what?”
“For hours Justice left, you have been indoor, and you don’t bother to tell me what he told you” the mother replied.
“He didn’t say anything” Faith opened the book again.
The mother gradually walked to the bed and sat on the edge. “I’m a mother, your mother for that matter, so i have a lot of experience about somany things. So tell me what he said”
Faith close the book and also sat up. “Mother, Justice said he has feelings for me”
“And what did you say?”
“I said nothing. But why would he have feelings for me while he’s also inlove with my sister?”
“Listen my daughter, something causes another thing to happen”
“What do you mean by that, mother?”
“Your sister’s consistent rejection of Justice caused him to find a better woman in u. You shouldn’t blame him for his turn around action. I see a nice and successful man in him”
“So what do you want me to do?” Faith looked at her mother.
“That shouldn’t be the question. The question is; do you love him?”
Faith nodded her head positively as an afterthought..
