A story written by Chekwube Emmanuel…
Monday came and work resumed. Since after the Saturday I went to her house, Purity has not called me which is unlike her. When I got to the office, I called her. She told me that she has not been feeling fine. I asked her if she needed me to come around but she declined telling me that she was going to be OK. I asked her if she was at her PPA but she said that she was at home.
I left the office and took a bike to her place. I knew she wasn’t expecting me and would be surprised to see me at her door. I knocked twice before she came to answer the door.
“My mind told me that it must be you” she said opening the door. “Do you ever do what you are told?”
“Nope I don’t” I replied following her in.
She was putting on a tank over a very short skaters skirt, leaving to view the freshness and sexiness of her laps. She looked sick.
“So why didn’t you call me all these while to tell me that you have not been feeling fine” I asked sitting beside her on the bed.
“Am I supposed to call you and tell you that I am not feeling fine? Is it not when you call and ask that I will tell you?”
“So if I don’t call you, you can’t call to tell me?”
“Purity please let me be. I don’t even want to start talking about your behaviour. I just had to respect myself and sit where I belong.”
“And what is the meaning of that?” I asked.
“Purity please, I don’t have the strength to talk, have you eaten?”
“Yea, I ate before I left for work.”
“How is IJ?”
“She is fine.”
We were talking when a guy from her PPA came. Immediately the dude saw me his countenance changed. He kept a straight face and gave me cold replies. Suspecting that maybe they had something together, I stood up, excused myself and left telling Purity that I will call her. She wanted to see me off but I declined telling her that I can find my way.
When I left the room and closed the door behind me, I placed my ear to the door pretending to wear my shoe. I wanted to know what will transpire between them or if they had anything going on because from the countenance of the dude, it looked like I have trespassed on his property. I didn’t have to wait long before the guy threw in the expected question.
“Who is he?”
“And what is the meaning of that?”
“It is a question that demands an answer.”
“When did that one start, wait is that why you couldn’t even answer his greetings?”
“Am I supposed to hug and probably kiss him for being in my girlfriend’s house?”
As I heard the girlfriend part, I became interested and listen more.
“And who is your girlfriend?” Purity barked. “Are you out of your mind? I think you have over stepped your boundaries, get out of my house.”
“You are asking me to leave your house because of some guy? After all I did for you?” The boy asked angrily.
“What the F**** did you do for me? Did I ever ask for your help with anything?” Purity threw back at him and cursed more.
I guess the guy realized that he approached the issue wrongly and wanted to placate her .
“Don’t touch me and get out,” Purity barked once more.
Just then I knocked on the door. The room went quiet as I knocked again. I was about to hit the door again when the lock clicked and Purity held the door open. Without any word, I walked past her into the room and stood before the guy whose countenance had changed on seeing me again. I sized him up with my eyes. He looks like someone I could roll on the floor before one could blink an eye, but again, it’s not by size.
“She said you should leave and I will advise you to do that now,” I said calmly to the guy pointing to the door.
Recovering from the shock of seeing me again, the boy looked me over while Purity stood in a corner quietly. After checking me out, the guy picked his phone and left without a word. Turning to Purity I asked,
“Is this the kind of people you keep as friends around here?”
“It’s none of your business who I keep as friend,” she replied and went to the bed.
“Ok, I will take that as an appreciation for getting rid of him,” I said and left before she could utter another word.
When I got back to the office, I thought over Purity’s behaviour. To the best of my knowledge, nothing changed between us. Though it seems she needed more attention from me which I wasn’t giving her. I was still with my thoughts when Constance threw a pile of papers with a flash drive on my table jolting me back from my thoughts.
“Where is your mind? I have called you three times with no reply and you are staring at me. Are you ok?” she asked.
“Yea, I’m fine, sorry about that. What is this?” I asked gathering the papers.
“Director said that you should help effect the corrections she made here on the original copy saved in the flash.” She replied.
“Ok, what did you save the work with,” I asked again slotting the flash drive into the USB port of the laptop.
