I like Agada! very mature, tried warning his friend without divulgin Sade's health condition! A rare trait lackin in most guys n gals who will broadcast their partner's secret. Benson was carried away by "lustful fantasies"!

nice write up! can't wait 4ur update...

PART 23

Benson felt his head explode as Ugwu made the declaration. The shop was spinning all of a sudden and he had to hold on to the counter for balance.
"HIV?" He asked in a low terrified tone,trying desperately to believe the three alphabets were innocently coming together to form something different from what he was thinking.

"AIDS" Ugwu declared unsympathetically when it was obvious Benson was being slow.

Bensons mind went completely blank initially like a clean white board, before his thoughts began to form a collage on it. He thought of the innumerable intimate encounters with Sade which were unprotected because she was on the contraceptive pill.He thought of Agadas warnings; "...for your own good". He thought Sades frequent question."Did Agada say anything about me?".

He turned sharply and ran out of the shop. His shock had been replaced by fury. He didn't stop running till he got to Sades house. He pounded desperately on the door,ignoring the surprised looks of neighbours. He continued for twenty minutes even though there was no response. Finally the security man attached to the building forced him to leave.

Benson was frustrated. He needed someone else to be angry at. He began running again, this time to find Agada. "Why didn't he tell me?" He thought to himself as he raced furiously towards campus. He arrived at their departmental lecture theatre where he knew they'd just be finishing a group discussion. Agada, Kefas, Abdul and another girl;one of their coursemates came walking out of the hall.

Benson breathed heavily as he watched Agada approaching, holding the girls hand and laughing heartily. So Agada had given him the HIV infected ex while he moved on happily. He felt his blood boiling, his ears were steaming, his vision was blurred by superheated tears. He rushed like a launched misile towards Agada. Agada turned at the last minute and saw him but was too late reacting as Benson had thrown him to the ground and lifted a stone to ram against his head.

PART 24

Benson felt himself being pulled off Agada by strong hands. Kefas had gotten there in time to knock the stone out of his hands and had now seperated the pair. Kefas and Abdul quickly shoved Agada and Benson into a small class nearby, away from the small crowd that had gathered before the brawl became a campus security matter.

"Benson are you mad? What's your problem?" Kefas asked while pinning the squirming Benson against a wall.
"Ask him? Ask that bastard" Benson screamed, still trying to wiggle out of Kefas' vice like grip.

"You are the one that came charging like a rabid dog" kefas insisted. "So what is the matter?"
"How could you?" Benson yelled, struggling with a new found intensity;like an earthworm that had been bathed in salt.

Agada who was examining the small cuts and bruises following his rough landing on the ground screamed back. "Stop beating about the bush and say what's on your mind?"

Benson paused for a while."Why didn't you tell me Sade had HIV?"

Benson watched for their reactions. Kefas let out a loud shriek and abandoned his law enforcement responsibility, leaving Benson alone. Abdul threw both hands on his head quickly as though trying to stop it from flying off. He turned to Agada searching for a knowing smile, a gloating look. Instead he found a genuinely dazed expression as Agada seemed to have been hit by a jolt of lightening.

"What did you say?" Agada mumbled finally.

PART 25

Benson wondered which was the greater shock. Finding out Sades nasty secret or realising Agada did not know.

"You mean you didn't know?" Benson asked
"Sade? HIV? How would I have known?" Agada wailed suddenly realising that bruises and cuts were the least of his problems.
"You didn't see her take any pills or discover any hidden medicines?"
"No,well yes I happened to find some medicines in her hosue once and when I inquired, she said they were antidepressants and some other psychiatric drugs".
"Psychiatric drugs?" Benson repeated."And you believed?"
"Of course I did" Agada raised his voice in self defence while feeling foolish deep down. "She told me she was treated for severe depression with suicidal thoughts and attempts to harm those around her".Agada stopped speaking. The more he spoke, the more foolish he felt for believing her incredulous tale.

"So is that why you said I should stop seeing her for my own good?"

"Yes" Agada said."I had promised her I wouldn't tell anyone".

Kefas and Abdul sat down watching, amazed by the unexpected turn of events, and glad they had not slept with the most beautiful girl on campus.

"So how did you find out?" Kefas asked.
Benson narrated the broken cupboard debacle stating that the cupboard fell with the door smashing open against the floor, conveniently leaving out the part about two Unclad bodies throwing themselves against the poor wooden cabinet.

"So" Abdul started,"You two have HIV?"
"Abdul!" Kefas cautioned. "You don't know how to talk. How can you just ask like that, as if you are a child"
"What?" Abdul protested. "Is that not what all this talk is about?"

The room fell silent. A wasp whizzing past punctured holes in the blanket of gloomy silence.
"So what happens now?" Kefas queried.
"We go and find that witch called Sade" Agada fumed.
"And do what with her?" Abdul chipped in.
"What do you mean and do what? We have to see her, how could she do something so vile?" Benson charged.
Abdul sneered."I don't know how that cures your HIV".
Benson rushed forward and grabbed Abdul by the throat. Agada and Kefas had to restrain him as he bellowed angrily at Abdul who was still shrugging defiantly.

"Abdul is right. You guys should go and get tested" Kefas offered when tempers had cooled.

PART 26

Agada and Benson sat in one of the waiting rooms of the campus sick bay,dedicated to HIV counselling and testing while Kefas and Abdul waited in the car outside. Benson looked around. There were pictures on the wall including one in which a dark stern looking doctor in thick rimmed glasses was pointing a warning finger while holding a pack of condoms with the bold inscription-USE ONE OF THESE! He turned away from that picture but began to hear the words-YOU SHOULD HAVE USED ONE OF THESE-in the tone of a damnatory sermon.
He turned to the wall on the other side of the room where he saw a drug advert marketing the drug Truvada. He buried his head in his hands.

"Mr Benson" one of the nurses shouted in a loud shrill voice that could do wellannouncing a hawkers wares.Benson stood up briskly without looking at Agada and walked into the consulting room.

"Good morning" a pleasant looking smallish nurse greeted him cheerfully. He nodded in response.
"So why are you here Mr Benson?"
"I have been having unprotected sex with a girl for a few months now.I now know she has HIV and I want to know..." His voice tailed off into the obvious.
"When last did you have sex?"
"Excuse me?" Benson asked with a frown. "How is that relevant?"
"Well,there is a window period of 6-8weeks and so even if we test you now, we'd have to test you again after 2months to be sure".
"Ok,I see. Well we had sex yesterday so I guess I won't bother doing the test now.I will come back later then"
He stood up to leave.
"But we need to talk about the details of this disease.." She called after him.
Benson was already out the door.

He didn't meet Agada in the waiting area. Agada was probably already in one of the consulting rooms. Two whole months, he thought to himself. How would he survive the agonizing suspense? He shook his head hoping the thought would fall out as he did. A loud scream from inside one of the consulting rooms caught his attention.
"What? No no no no, do it again, do it again now. Infact where is a doctor? I don't trust you this nurse"
"Calm down Sir"
"I will not, I will not. This cannot be true"
At first Benson couldn't recognise the voice.
Then Agada came storming out of one of the consulting rooms screaming "this cannot be true".
