MY MISSING RIB
A STORY WRITTEN BY BRIGHT DANIEL
Faith kept smiling staring at Justice who became speechless at her behaviour. He slowly walked to a nearby table and kept his car key. He moved closer to Faith in a way he looked into her eyes. Seeing such closeness and eye contact, the smiles on Faith’s face quenched. Therefore, she stared into his eyes too feeling her heartbeat.
“I don’t know what to say” Justice began as he gently held her hands. “I have been busy looking for a gold when one is at my doorsteps. I strongly believe that you are meant for me. I love you so much, Faith” he added.
“Why do you think I’m meant for you?” Faith asked with a low voice.
“Because i feel it in my heart, see it in your eyes, it’s written all over you”
“So you really love me as you said?”
“Yes, i do, so much”
“I love you too” Faith said and began to smile again.
“Are you kidding me?” Justice asked surprisingly.
“No, I’ve always loved you” Faith replied.
The feelings of happiness and joy circulated all over Justice’s body thereby causing an attractive smile on his face as Faith stared at him with a smile too. He gradually released his hands from hers and held her two cheeks in a way he brought his head closer to hers and kissed her. “Thank you” he whispered while Faith smiled. “I have to offer you something” he touched his two pockets and turned to leave but Faith held him back saying, “That’s not why I’m here”
“No, you have to take something because this is your first time of coming to my house” Justice insisted and moved out while Faith smiled and sat on the bed with her legs properly closed.
Stella entered into her room sadly which her sister, Thelma noticed. She sat down on the edge of the bed twisting her fingers.
“Stella, what is it?” Thelma approached closer but Stella never said a word. Rather she stood up to the window, she slid the cotton slightly opened and looked out through the window. She could see Steve and Celestina entering into a car and eventually drove off. Then she turned.
“What is the problem?” Thelma asked again, yet she didn’t reply as she went back to the bed. “Is it because of Celestina?” Thelma added sitting beside her.
“Is that her name?” Stella asked with a low voice.
“Yes” Thelma replied then silence took over. “Are you jealous?” she added but Stella looked at her and averted her eyes from her. “Do you love Steve?” Thelma was still asking, yet Stella didn’t say a word. “He loves you too” she added then Stella looked at her.
“How do you know that Steve loves me?” she asked.
“I made him tried to confess after we escaped from the forest”
“How? I don’t understand” Stella became more enthusiastic.
“I have a confession to make” Thelma began with her head downward. “I made Steve believe that i were you. That’s how i discovered he has an atom of love for you”
“You did what?!” Stella exclaimed standing up.
“Please, forgive me, i don’t know what came over me. I was only carried away but now that you’re back, i don’t have anything of such feelings for him again. Please forgive me” Thelma shed tears.
Stella looked at her for a while and brought her closer to her chest. “Is okay” she began to dry her tears. “You did nothing wrong, you were only carried away, but next time don’t use my identity again. It’s not good” she warned.
Celestina and Steve were found on an open field where different spouses were sitting drinking and having fun. One could see bottles of drinks with straw in them standing beside Celestina and Steve.
“Have i done anything wrong?” Celestina broke the silence.
“No, what do you mean?” Steve asked.
“Am i not beautiful enough?”
“No” Steve looked at her.
“Is it a crime to fall in love?”
“Why are you asking me all this?” Steve asked again.
Faith looked into his eyes and said, “Then why are you treating me like this?”
“I don’t get you” Steve became more confused.
“Steve, when will you notice that i love you? I love you with all my heart! Can’t you see that?!” Celestina began to touch his cheek and beards. “Please, tell me you love me too” she said with a romantic voice.
Steve remained quiet for a while but eventually spoke up. “Celestina, we have come a long way but.. i see you as nothing other than my friend”
“Are you saying you don’t love me?” Celestina withdrew her hand.
“Sincerely, i don’t have the feelings”
Celestina was disappointed. “Who then do you love?” she asked. Immediately, Steve’s mind went to Stella but he never mentioned her. “Is it Thelma or her twin sister?” Celestina was still asking but Steve said nothing. So she stood up angrily towards the car with tears in her eyes. Steve followed her. Both were inside the car with Steve on the driver seat.
“I’m sorry, i didn’t mean to hurt you” Steve said.
“Just take me home!” Celestina shouted in tears. Steve started the car and drove her home. In front of their house as Celestina came down from the car, she saw Faith also coming down from Justice boss’s classic car…
