Missing Pieces ==>>Episode 2

Standard
Mirabel met Christabel in the room when she got back,it was quite obvious they both had a bad day,she was lying on the bed with her legs propped against the wall and her head hanging out on the air and cool music playing on her phone,dropping her bag right on the floor,she joined her and for a few minutes nobody spoke…this was their brooding position,when ever one of them or both of them had a problem they always end up in that position…finally Christabel,as always,broke the silence…
‘I couldn’t even get him to talk to me all day…the only thing he said to me was ‘your food is burning’…and that’s all,I tried everything except pull off my clothes and stand naked as the day I was born and yet he still didn’t so much as acknowledge my presence….’
‘Go naked’…Mira laughed…’that’s a good one,why didn’t you try that,I thought pulling off your clothes for people of the opposite sex was a great talent of yours’…
Christabel shot her a wounded look…’ok ok am sorry for that statement,I really am,but somehow I don’t blame Chris for acting up,that guys gives you everything,including attention and yet you still don’t do enough for him,I actually felt sorry for him the other day,I mean no matter  how hard he tries for you you don’t even appreciate it…haba!…their should be a limit to everything’…
Mira felt tears gathering as she finished the long speech,she wasn’t only referring to her friend and her boyfriend,she was talking about herself and her mystery lover,today’s had been the worst,it was like he was angry at something,it barely lasted a minute before he came and she was not even halfway done by then,he just stood up and went straight to the bathroom and took a bath after which he came back and told her he needed to sleep,gathering her clothes she had gone to the bathroom to take a bath too crying all the way, not that he noticed anyway and left, never since they started their whatever it was they had,had he ever hinted that she should leave his house…she not only felt bad but cheap,and the worst was that she knew she would go running back to his room anytime he calls…she had foolishly fallen in love with him…
‘What was that about,what is bothering you’…Christa broke into her thoughts,it didn’t take special psychic powers for her to know something was up…
‘I just had a bad day that’s all….’..she went about narrating a stupid story to get her friend off the track..it worked..
‘I don’t know what to do about Chris,I have tried everything,he wouldn’t even take my calls’….
Mirabel stood up, stretching..’at least you had some food…’

Christabel watched her friend go into the kitchen then returned to her musing, she knew she did bad but she has been trying to make amends…no matter how hard she tried to deny it, Christopher was the only guy who rocked her world and she wouldn’t jeopardise their relationship for anything,she picked up her phone one more time…

Chris woke up to the ringing of his phone, Christabel,picking up the phone he gruffly said ‘come over’ before hanging up, 8missed calls, all from the same number, Christabel, the girl never gives up, yet he never plays with her, even  when she wronged him he still tried his best…and today was no different…
10minutes later he heard a knock on the door and went to open it, his flustered looking  girlfriend entered quietly…she started to talk but he cut it…
‘sheeeh..no talks please, am tired of that’….then he kissed her and suddenly their quarrel seems to be a distant memory…

Eddie was out with his friends having a drink…his weekends were always the same,hang out with his guys,have a drink and call up one of his ladies for an all night session, he chuckled to himself at his choice of words, session,h e had both day and night sessions…he was just on the verge of dialing up one of the ladies when he saw her…sleek,tall,fair and beautiful, exactly his type of lady, the lady walked like she owned the world, and she knew exactly the effect she had on the guys around her, his shifted his glance to the guy beside her, Christopher, his glass of cold drink he had on his hand suddenly tasted like mud to him, he so much hated the guy and with no good reason, his eyes went back to the girl beside him, their was no girl in this campus he wanted that he couldn’t have…he must have her and the mere fact that she was with Christopher fuelled his determination…
‘Who is that girl with Chris, do you know her?..’…he asked his friend Mike…the sure smile on Mike’s face showed he not only knew her but has so many stories to tell…
‘That girl is Christopher’s babe oo, word has it that he is hanging on tight’…he stared at them as if looking at their faces would automatically bring in more information, maybe that seem to work because he still had more to say…’I also heard she is an aristo babe, though nobody has even been able to prove that, and somehow nobody believes that either because she comes from a very wealthy family.
So that means money can’t get her either, Eddie thought…standing up he shook his friends’ hands and with the customary  ‘Guys we go yarn later’ he left…
He was so restless when he got back home, he couldn’t stop thinking about her, he was even more disturbed by the fact that Christopher had a girl he wanted, just the mere thought of Christopher drove him mad…knowing he wouldn’t be able to sleep unless he got some action,he picked up his phone… He already had someone in mind…

Mira was in the room brooding when her phone rang, she ignored it, it has been over 3hours Christabel left and even longer time since she had been thinking about her life, few months back she had met him on a bus on her way back to school, she had been sitting beside him, she had learnt that he was also a student of their school  and he was so entertaining, they had talked and laughed so much, along the way their bus spoilt and they had to find a guest house for the night, it was only sensible they shared a room considering the fact Mira had merger money and he was obviously a really rich dude. They had sex that first night,that was her first mistake which strangely she never regretted… she did not hear from him again which should have been her first clue, but she never stopped thinking about him… when they went back to school thoughts of him drove her crazy so much that she tried to track him down, that was when she realised she didn’t even know his name…
Her phone rang again and this time with an accompanied beep of a ping…’I want you here’..that was all the message read…quickly jumping up from the bed she put on a gown deliberately forgetting her underwear, he hates the extra wasted time, and rushed out grabbing a handful of money….
She obviously got there too late because she was in time to see another girl enter the room, from the window, their silhouette  showed her all she feared to be true…

His Story…My Words…#giggles#

 

 

Missing Pieces  By Nnagoziem Udensi and Ekene Mgbechikwelu

 

 

The shrill tone of Keisha’s tik tok  woke Christabel from a very deep slumber…5.00am…Instinctively she slipped a hand under her pillow to snooze the alarm but her phone wasn’t in its usual place…She quickly sat up and looked around what seem to be a very strange room trying to remember how she got there…Her alarm started off again,this time she was able to locate it immediately and turn it off…Remembering last night’s events was easier than she thought…She had been bored as usual on Friday so she had decided to have a night out much to the chagrin of her roommate and best friend Mirabel …One could simply describe her as a slut with just a word..She prefers to call herself  open-minded…She pressed a hand to her head as blood came rushing in,she felt the beginnings of what will be a terrible headache…staring at the stranger lying beside her for a few seconds she stood up and went into the bathroom…she doesn’t even remember his name…Quickly taking a bath,she dressed up and prepared to leave the room,the figure lying on the bed didn’t even stir…which was good because she hated the morning-after  awkwardness..yes we had sex..end of discussion…no need for extra courtesy..some people just don’t understand that…only 30 percent of guys she had sex with understood that…respect…one guy she has sex with actually went to the extent of asking for a second date,as if they actually went on a first.
Stepping out of the hotel,she strolled slowly down the road with the intention of hailing a cab in the expressway..as she walked she noticed a few early morning joggers  (exercise was the last thing in the world anybody could get her to do)… fortunately she saw a cab drop someone just few blocks from her and she called him…settling at the backseat she sighed and for the first time since she woke up picked up her phone …exactly what she was afraid of…16 missed calls…3 missed calls from her mother,1 missed call from her course rep and 12 missed calls from Christopher,her boyfriend…yes she had one..a serious one at that,She wasn’t surprised that she didn’t get a call from Mira,considering she knew exactly where she would be…putting her phone back in her carry-on bag she made a mental note to return the calls much later,all she just needed to do was rest during the long drive back to the campus…She felt so weak…
20mins later she knocked on the door of her room and hurried in when the door opened, she had received an earlier message from her course rep about an impromptu lecture that was fixed by 7am, lectures on Saturday,who does that?…ignoring the disgusted look her friend Mira shot her she went to her wardrobe to pick out a perfect ‘Iamtiredandnotinthemoodforlecturestoday’s cloth and proceeded to wear it…
‘Chris came looking for you’..so the quiet judgmental mouse finally decided to talk…she smilled
‘so we are talking now’…Mira gave her a long hiss that would put any snake to shame and when back to bed…she laughed…such a strange creature she thought while applying quite a layer of make-up to covers up the bags under her eyes…They had met within their first two weeks of entering the university, though in different faculties, they had been inseparable, though people often wondered how on earth they stayed friends as they were the exact opposite of each other…where Christabel was a wayward extrovert, Mirabel was much more reserved, always keeping to herself…they were from different tribes too, Mirabel was a Yoruba while Christabel was an Igbo girl…
‘Babe please I have to go,some idiot fixed lectures on Saturday…’…She got no reply,not that she was expecting some…
Mirabel sighed as her friend left the room, sometimes she wondered to herself how she got to love her so much, she was an awesome person really, a perfect friend but she had a terrible lifestyle, of course after hearing her story and her reasons she understood, but still sometimes she wished her friend was entirely different..she had everything, she was beautiful, came from a wealthy family, has a boyfriend who adores her, and a very high CGPA,her studies was something she doesn’t play with…Mira sighed again…Christabel was one of the very few people she met that she really love and trust…being an only girl,just like her,they both took to each other…she also liked to believe that she was the only person Christabel listens to though in truth Christabel listens to nobody but herself. The previous day she had tried every possible means, like she always does to convince her not to go out but as usual it yielded no results…The smooth tone of her phone broke her line of thoughts, glancing at the phone to check the caller identity she went cold and warm at the same time…Christabel was not the only one guilty of being too available for guys though in her own case it was just that one, and it would be a secret she would never tell anyone…not even Christabel. With shaky hands she picked the call…
‘Hello….’
3hours later Christabel  was knocking hard on a door, her day has not been going quite as well as she had hoped, first she was having a killer headache then the lecturer from hell decided to extend his God’s given awful time to 3hours including a pop quiz due to the fact few people actually showed up for his lectures…she had received two very annoying sms from her boyfriend during the quiz she was unprepared for and it also didn’t help that she hadn’t had anything to eat since the previous night. She raised her hand to knock on the door again and as if on cue it opened immediately, without waiting for an invitation and totally ignoring the angry look on Christopher’s face she pushed past him and went into the room going straight to his kitchen to look for something to eat, due the fact she spends most of her nights in his room there was always food in the kitchen, cooking was a hobby of hers, putting the leftover rice on fire to warm it up she entered the room and slumped on the bed, she was bone tired and trying hard not to pass out…
Christopher stared at her for a full minute trying hard not to lose his temper, having not heard from her for almost a day he was in a very foul mood and she wasn’t helping matters, he had noticed the book she clutched in her hand and assumed she was just coming from class but it still didn’t explain why she hadn’t been taking her calls the previous night….as if knowing he was not in any way ready to even acknowledge her presence she spoke…
‘Mira said you came looking for me yesterday…I couldn’t make it to your house last night, I went into town’….Unbelievable Chris thought, no apologies…they had been dating for almost a year now but he still hadn’t gotten used to that rotten attitude,everybody keeps wondering why he keeps her around…facing her, still looking at her, she was tired he could see that, she had miniature bags under her eyes, her skin was slightly flushed probably from the sun and he could see a vein ticking at her temple but she was still the most beautiful girl he had ever been with, he sighed, she was his weakness, he knows, she knows too…
‘Your food is burning’…was all he could muster,before he turned back to his laptop pretending to be engrossed in what he was doing…
Mira knocked on his door,smilling widely when he opened the door…’Hi!…I brought food…’…he stared at her for some time and motioned her in…when she entered he shut the door and took what she had on her hand and kept them on the table… she frowned a little, this was always the routine, she comes in and they start immediately, no discussions or foreplay, just sex, then after which he asks for food, always the same routine..she could even swear that he doesn’t even know her full name…she had tried for the past 3 months to make him at least like her but he seemed not interested, well she was quite willing to take what she was given…
‘Do you have your undies on?’…he asked his hands already on his belt…
‘You said not to…’…
‘Good’…his mouth closed over hers…
