MY MISSING RIB
A STORY WRITTEN BY BRIGHT DANIEL
Adam stood up after hearing Mr Stanley out. “Incredible!” he began angrily. “This is totally unacquainted to me that as little as that succubus, Celestina is, she has the guts to execute such a precarious act in this building. God! She needs to be whipped tremendously on the buttocks with truncheon which can send her to a serious autism!”
“It hasn’t finished” Mr Stanley said again and sat on the edge of the bed. Hearing that, Adam also sat down. “She now wants to blackmail me; that if i don’t give her twenty million naira she will let my wife know about our affairs”
“My God!” Adam exclaimed and stood up again. “That girl is evil!”
“I need your advice on how I’m gonna overcome this and let my wife know..” Mr Stanley was interrupted by his wife who walked in surprisingly.
“Let me know about what?” she asked looking at her husband who became quiet. She averted her eyes to Adam. “Prof, what’s going on?” she asked again but Adam gently went back to the side-stool where he kept his stick then picked it. “Can somebody tell me what’s going on here!” Mrs Stanley shrieked.
“Madam, could you please have a seat?” Adam said with a low voice then she sat beside her husband. “There is a serious issue at hand”
“About what?” Mrs Stanley asked instantly.
“Madam, please, calm down” Adam began. “The issue is about Celestina and your husband” Hearing that, Mrs Stanley glanced at her husband then looked at Adam again to continue. Even Adam glanced at his master finding it very difficult to let the cat out of the bag. But he was at the point of no return.
“Celestina seduced my master and also blackmailed him on the fact that if he doesn’t agree for her to marry Steve and also give her twenty million naira, she will let you know about it” Adam explained and became quiet.
“So this is why you have been insisting that Celestina must marry my son!” Mrs Stanley stood up glaring at her husband. “You are not ashame of yourself!” she grabbed him on the cloth but Adam disengaged her hands regardless his short stature.
“Madam, is okay!” Mrs Stanley adjusted backwards. “I can’t believe that you are also understimating the power and philosophy of naturalism! Your husband, as nature holds it succumbed to the temptation of seduction! You shouldn’t blame him but blame the succubus, Celestina!” Adam said vehemently. “What do you think that will take place at that time, especially when it comes from a beautiful succubus like Celestina? nature will take place!” he added.
Mrs Stanley glared at her husband quietly then walked out angrily. Then Adam looked at Mr Stanley in a way that explains: COMPLICATED!
Steve had tried Stella’s number severally without her picking up. So he became worried walking around his room.
It was already dark, Stella was in a taxi going back home from the saloon. Meanwhile, Megan just returned and parked his car. He wanted to go into his apartment but stopped and glanced at Stella’s door. He turned, knocked at the door and Thelma opened it. She wore a tranperent white gown that exposed her underwears.
“Good evening, sir”
“Evening, how are you?”
“I’m fine, who are you looking for?”
Megan became surprise. “I came to see how you’re doing?” he replied.
“Have we met before?”
Megan became more confused. “We met yesterday and even this morning”
“I don’t Know you, wrong room” Thelma concluded and wanted to close the door.
“Wait!” Megan interrupted her. “Are you not Stella? Stella Zeno?”
Before Thelma could replied, Stella arrived. When Megan saw her, he looked at both of them.
“So, you both are twins” he said.
“Good evening” Stella neglected the statement.
“Evening” Megan replied.
At that time, Thelma entered inside.
“Have you missed your way again?” Stella asked Megan.
“No” he smiled. “I came to check on you”
“We are friends, remember?”
“Alright, thanks” Stella proceeded to the door.
“Good night” Megan told her then she looked back and said, “Night”
Steve kept trying the number restlessly. “Baby, please, pick up” he soliloquized as he placed the phone on his ear again.
Back to South Africa inside the twins apartment, Thelma watched her sister as she sat down on the bed with her bag. “Your hair looks good” she said.
“Thanks” Stella replied as she opened the bag.
“Who was that guy outside?” Thelma became inquisitive.
“He’s one of our neighbours. He’s stays at room 16” Stella replied without looking at her. She began to search the bag seriously. “My cell phone!” she exclaimed.
“What about it?” Thelma asked.
“I can’t find it”
“Didn’t you leave it at the saloon?”
“Thanks true!” Stella rushed outside instantly just to see everywhere dark except electric light from poles and buildings. She began to run towards the main road. Megan who was about to go into his apartment saw her then returned.
“Hey, what’s chasing you?!” he shouted but Stella ignored him waiting patiently for a taxi until he came closer…
