MY MISSING RIB
A STORY WRITTEN BY BRIGHT DANIEL
As Stella opened her bag to bring out the recharge card, Judeson stared at her. He averted his eyes and brought out two thousand naira. He gave it to her after which she had handed the airtime to him. Stella stared at the TWO one thousand naira note each strangely because she wasn’t familiar with the currency.
“Sorry sir, do you have a change?” She asked.
“Yes, five hundred naira” Judeson replied surprisingly.
“Please, give me a minute” Stella went back to Rose to get the change. Judeson admired her butt and body stature which was obviously inevitable. As he stared at her, Stella returned with the change.
“I’m sorry, just that I’m not familiar with this currency” Stella smiled.
“Really? Which country are you from then?” Judeson asked.
“Wow, you are welcome” Judeson opened a small chest of drawer and brought out his personal card. “Have this, just give me a call” he stretched the card to her.
“Why are you giving me your personal card sir?” Stella asked.
“In case you encounter any problem”
“NO, i can’t take it sir”
“Have it, I’m harmless” Judeson persuaded before Stella gradually collected the card. Judeson put his key in the ignition and wanted to whine up the from glass.
“Sir, what of your change?” Stella asked instantly.
“Keep the change” Judeson drove off.
The day gradually began to get dark when Stella and Rose returned to the house. Stella sluggishly sat on a chair with the personal card in her hand.
“Babe, you are lucky oh!” Rose also sat down on the bed.
“For what?” Stella asked.
“Can’t you see how you came across a young handsome man today. Call him”
“Why should i call him?”
“Why are you behaving like you don’t know the meaning of a guy giving a girl his card?”
“I’m not interested. U talk as if you’ve forgotten Steve” Stella stood. She went to a trash can and threw the card away.
“Babe, easy oh” Rose concluded and walked into the kitchen.
Now the day totally became dark. Bottles of drinks could be found in Justice room. He sat together with his friend Bernard who had no idea why they were drinking.
“Guy, the last time i checked, today isn’t your birthday. So what are we celebrating for?” Bernard asked as he opened a bottle.
“Faith is the reason” Justice replied. “U should have seen what this girl did earlier today!” he added.
“Has she accepted to marry you?”
“No, but her behavior towards me seems like we are already married”
“I told you! That girl is very good”
“Yes, she is” Justice’s cell phone vibrated on the table. She glanced at it and saw the name ‘Faith’. “She’s the one calling” he said silently and picked the call.
“Good evening” Faith greeted.
“Evening, how are you?”
“Do you expect me to be fine?”
“Well, I’m not fine”
“Ever since you left my place you didn’t even bother to call me to know if you reached home safely”
“Please, I’m sorry”
“Anyways, thanks for the things you brought for me”
“You’re welcome. Thanks for feeding me too” Justice replied and they laughed.
“Silly boy, that means nothing” Faith continued.
“It means something to me” they laughed again.
“Okay, night” Justice replied and the line went off.
“Ba-doo!” Bernard shook his hand laughing continuously. “Guy, it seems like both of you are already dating”
“Yes, but i’ve never seen this kind of date whereby a girl will not say yes to you first”
“That’s even the best and it’s so romantic”
“Really? Okay” Justice concluded and drank a bottle of drink.
THE NEXT DAY
Steve was found outside their compound with Judeson in the resting room. Both looked classic in their expensive clothes which added to their handsomeness.
“Guy, you should have seen how beautiful this girl is! She’s definitely the next mountain to be climbed” Judeson said and Steve giggled.
“So you even want to climb the mountain of a recharge card seller. Guy, go and marry” Steve said giggling.
“I can never stop thinking..” Judeson paused when he saw Thelma arrived into the room. So he stared at her steadily.
“Good day sir” Thelma greeted him but he didn’t respond.
“Judeson!” Steve shouted his name before he realised himself.
“Good day my dear” he responded then Thelma looked at Steve and said, “Lunch is ready”
“Okay, we’re coming” Steve replied while Thelma walked out. Instantly, Judeson stood up and sat beside Steve.
“Guy, what’s it?” Steve became surprise.
“You remember this girl i was just telling you about?” Judeson whispered.
“You mean the one that sold the recharge card to you?”
“Exactly! I think is Thelma’s twin sister coz immediately i saw Thelma, her image appeared to me instantly!”
“You are joking right?”
“Do i look like a clown to you?”
“Did she tell you her name?”
“I didn’t remember to ask her but i can remember her saying she’s from South Africa”
Hearing that, Steve jumped on his feet. “Take me to that place now!”
“You mean now?”
“Yes!” Steve rushed inside and brought his car key. They entered in a hurry and sped out…
