MY MISSING RIB
SAME DAY IN SOUTH AFRICA
Victoria stood up from Thelma’s apartment after she got tired of her giggling. As she was going, she dragged Thelma with her.
“Why are dragging me?!” Thelma yelled.
“Come make my brother stay instead of going tomorrow” Victoria replied.
“So you are serious!”
“Am i a clown?”
“Alright, free me” Thelma concluded then Victoria disengaged her hand. They entered into the apartment just to see Megan still eating lunch. When he saw them, he paused surprisingly. Thelma on the other hand lost sense of concentration as she walked towards the dining table with Victoria.
“Good day, Megan” Thelma greeted.
“Good day” Megan replied and glanced at his sister who took a seat instantly.
“How’s the food, brother?” she asked. Megan didn’t replied rather looked at Thelma again.
“What a surprise visit?”
“Yes, uninvited one” Thelma replied still standing up. She gave a smile then glance at Victoria.
“Well, sit and join us”
“Thanks” Thelma sat down. They became quiet. One could see Victoria secretly kicking Thelma’s legs under the table indicating that she should start their plan but Thelma said nothing rather kicked her back.
“Hum.. brother are you still going tomorrow?” Victoria broke the silence.
“Yes, you’ve asked me about that a lot. I can’t change my mind” Megan replied then VictorIa kicked Thelma again.
“Why do you want to go?” Thelma interfered and Megan looked at her.
“My duration here is over” he replied.
“What if a add more time to your duration?”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean…” Thelma became confused without knowing what else say, so she glanced at Victoria.
“I’m listening” Megan brought her attention back.
“Can you help me out with something for few days before going?” Thelma requested.
“Can you please follow me to my school tomorrow to meet some lecturers and explain things to them about my absence all these while. They wouldn’t believe me if i go alone?”
Megan became surprise. “What’s the cause of your absence?” he asked.
Thelma knew things were getting out of hand, so she said, “I’ll tell u if you promise me one thing”
“That you won’t leave tomorrow or next”
“Alright then” Megan smiled and began to eat while Victoria was filled with excitement.
THE NEXT DAY IN NIGERIA
Mrs Henry and Faith were in the sittingroom when Celestina came out from her room well dressed with her hand-bag having the same colour of her clothes. Faith stared at her knowing very well she was going to meet Justice.
“Where are you going to, Celestina?” the mother seed her.
“To see a friend” she replied. Faith kept quit but felt a bit jealous.
At Justice apartment, Celestina entered. She couldn’t believe her eyes how conducive the apartment was. She knocked at the door then Justice opened. Both stared at each other before he said, “Coming in”
After they entered, Justice sat down while Celestina refused to sit as she stared at him humbly.
“Justice, i know i have wronged you, please forgive me” she rubbed her palms together piteously.
“What do you want me to do?” Justice asked.
“To forgive me and accept me. I mean, I’m ready to accept you now”
Justice smiled. “There is nothing to forgive and i don’t care if you accept me or not. I have found true love for where Faith is”
Celestina fell on her knees with tears in her eyes. “Please, Justice i beg you” she kept rubbing her palms.
“I’m sorry, it’s too late. You can leave now” Justice concluded. After Celestina insisted to leave, he let her in the sittingroom there and entered into the bedroom. When Celestina got tired of shedding tears, she sluggishly left the apartment in tears shamefully.
At Mr Stanley’a resident, the gate opened and a car drove inside. Meanwhile, Stella and Steve were in the resting room outside. Both stared at the car. Already, Steve knew who it was, so he began to smile.
“Why are you smiling?” Stella asked him.
“It’s Judeson” he replied as he stood up.
“The great warrior!” Judeson exclaimed immediately he came out. To Stella’s surprise, she also saw Rose coming out from the car.
“Oh my God, Rose!” she shouted.
“Stella!” Rose shouted too. Both ran and hugged each other.
Seeing Rose in Judeson’s car was the last thing Steve expected, so he remained speechless.
“Steve, the man!” Judeson approached closer and shook his hand. “Man of South Africa!” he added.
“Xup bro?” Steve said still looking at Rose who was coming from afar with Stella. “Guy, how come..”
“Trust me, guy!” Judeson interrupted him.
“Mehn, you are bad” Steve concluded smiling until Rose approached closer.
“Good day, Steve” she greeted smiling seriously. Even Stella greeted Judeson.
“What about Thelma?” he asked.
“She’s fine” Stella replied.
“No, that’s not what i mean” They all laughed.
“Okay, she’s in school that’s why she isn’t here. But she will join us soon” Stella replied again.
“Now you’re talking!” Jude concluded then they laughed again..
