MY MISSING RIB
Final Episode (Episode 24)
A STORY WRITTEN BY BRIGHT DANIEL
Stella and Steve were in pyjamas at the door staring at each other. However, Steve placed one of his hands behind to hide the ring. Seeing the situation, Stella glanced at the wall clock. “It’s to ten, what are you still doing awake?” she broke the silence looking at Steve.
“I can’t sleep” Steve replied.
“Hum.. Can we go outside?”
“You look strange. Are you okay?”
“Alright” Stella followed him outside. They sat beside the swimming pool once again looking at the twinkle little stars and wondering what they are. Stella waited quietly for Steve to say something.
“Stella?” Steve called then Stella looked at him with an attractive smile. “No one can tell how much i love you except my heart. Like the stars shines in the sky, so as your love fills my heart. That’s why i want to spend the rest of my life with you” he brought out the ring and held her hand in a way he positioned her finger. “Zeno Stella, will you marry me?”
Stella smiled as she stared at him. “Like the river flows continuously so as my love for you flows in my heart. Yes, i will marry you, Stanley Steve” she replied with a smile then Steve placed the ring on her finger. They gently kissed.
SAME NIGHT IN SOUTH AFRICA
Thelma remained speechless on the seat. Of course, she knew what Megan was indirectly saying which was the cause of the quietness, then she totally averted her eyes from him. Megan gently held her jaw and turned her face in a way he looked straight into her eyes.
“All I’m saying is that i love you” he said then gently kissed her which she reciprocated.
At Mrs Henry’s resident. Celestina had refused to come out from her room and even to eat. This got her mother worried, so she went to her room for the second time.
“Celestina” she called but Celestina said nothing rather faced the wall as she laid on the bed. The mother sat down. “Everything that happens on the face of the earth has a reason. What God says about your life must surely come to pass if only you follow his ways. The same thing is applicable to whosoever God has destined you to spend the rest of your life with. Steve and Justice are not meant for you. Remember even before you were born, God had kept your rib, your husband for you. So no matter what you do for any man who is not the one God had destined you with, he will always go away but the one meant for you by God will always stay no matter what. So my daughter, you are yet to find your missing rib, okay? Come and eat your food” the mother concluded.
Meanwhile, Celestina had been shedding tears when the mother was talking to her. Suddenly, she felt her mother’s hand on her shoulder turning her around. She reciprocated and sat up in tears, then mother began to dry her tears.
“Stop crying my daughter. No man worth your tears, okay? Let’s go eat something” they semutanuoisly stood up and sluggishly went out.
SIX MONTHS LATER
At Mr Stanley’s resident, all were preparing for the wedding between Steve and Stella which would take place the next day. However, all were expecting relatives from South Africa who arrived suddenly. The gate opened and two cars of Mr Stanley drove in. When Stella noticed it, she came out just to behold her sister coming out from the car with Megan and Victoria.
“Stella!” Thelma shouted.
“Thelma!” Stella ran and hugged her tightly. Steve came out at that moment and welcomed Megan and other people.
“Mehn, you should have told me you live in paradise” Megan admired the compound.
“Are you kidding me?” Steve giggled.
“No, i guess I’ll relocate to Nigeria” they laughed.
As they entered the sittingroom, so as Adam was coming down from the staircase.
“Prof!” Thelma ran to him.
“Who are my eyes beholding?” Adam began as he reciprocate a hug from Thelma. “You have a merchantable body like an octopus” Everybody giggled at the funny compliment.
“Thank you, prof” Thelma disengaged herself from him.
“Please, make yourselves at home” Adam announced as he left.
THE NEXT DAY
The wedding ended. Of course, Judeson was Steve’s bestman while Rose was Stella’s chief bride’s maid.
At the resident of Steve, not Mr Stanley’s, Steve carried Stella in his arms into his room. Both fell on the bed laughing seriously.
“I guess you know the next thing” Steve said as he pull off his clothes.
“I don’t know” Stella replied on the bed. She wore a sparkling blue gown. One could see her breast obviously voluminous. “Okay, i know what next” she said.
“You want to fight me”
“Yes, in a romantic way” Steve said as he headed to the bed. He first kissed her, romanced her body and pulled her cloth. “Now, the fight begins” he said aloud then Stella laughed.
“Silly boy” she said too and started the second kiss which led to a satisfactory sex.
Of course, Judeson, Justice and Megan married their spouses after sometimes. And Celestina also found her missing rib.
