My Personal Taste

Episode 19

*Rose’s point of view*
I woke up so early the next day. I don’t know the time exactly but i walked to the window and drew the curtains.
Its still a bit dark ouside.
I closed the curtains back.
I walked the bathroom and switched on the light. I washed my face in the sink and took my toothbrush to brush my teeth.
I watched myself on the mirror as i brushed my teeth.
Today im gonna go back to delta to face Lady B.
I wonder what she’s gonna do to me if i don’t get her money in two weeks time.
I know she would be trying to reach me so she could threaten me over and over again.
I wonder if Aunty Caro had tried calling my lines or she’s still annoyed.
All the same, I can’t wait to get to my house. My apartment, where i’do feel more comfortable.
Not here, A mansion but there’s no comfort.
No love.
Mom threatens son.
Where Kelly hurts me with his words after helping me.
Where someone goes out to eat only to get back, drunk.
I wonder if Kelly is still there in the sitting-room and still in that position.
I still don’t understand why he had to come back drunk.
I was done with brushing my teeth
I walked out of the bathroom, and out into the corridor. I got to Kelly’s door but i don’t want to check if he’s in.
Im sure he’s in and would get mad at me for whatever reason.
He’s always been saucy and crazy.
I walked downstairs to the sitting-room. He isn’t there.
I yawned as my stomache grumbled.
Hunger.
What do i do now.
There’s nothing in that kitchen.
I hissed and sat down on a couch..
But im so hungry and cant help it..So i walk up the stairs.
I walked to Kelly’s door, inhaled and knocked.
No answer.
I don’t want to open it to avoid recieving his hurtful words again.
Its just too early for that.
I knocked again but no response.
I knocked again, harder this time,
But he didn’t respond.
And i still don’t wanna open the door.
He must be a deep sleeper.
He must have woken up late in the night and help himself up the stairs to his room.
I knocked again, no answer.
I shrugged..
I’ll have to find anything..Anything to eat.
I turned,and walked to the kitchen.
I got in.
Seriously this kitchen needs cleaning.
Anyway, I walked to the counter, stretch my toes high as i searched through the kitchen shelf. But i found nothing edible. Nothing i can prepare.
I search the cupboard,
Nothing.
I bent, and opened every cabinet, still there’s nothing in there.
Hmm! I can’t believe this.
My hands akimbo.
I stood, searching where else to find.
The fridge is totally empty. I searched it yesterday.
Well, a miracle can happen.
I walked to it and pulled the door open.
Empty.
Nothing is inside.
What sort of human-being is this guy?
What do i find what to eat now.
Im so hungry.
This butterflies in my stomache don’t want to respect their selves.
My stomache is making a hell of a noise.
I walk back to the cabinet to search again.
My hand touched something.
I took it out.
And i cant believe my eyes
A small white covered container with little cassava flour inside.
Garri? in this kitchen?
Woah!.. I can’t believe this.
I quickly got a plate and poured it all into the plate. It isn’t much but its better than nothing.
I got water.
Now, i’ll need sugar.
But there’s none.
This guy needs to be flogged, seriously!
I hissed and searched for any form of sugar but what i found is salt.
I shrugged..
“I go use am like that nah.”
I took a spoon, poured little of the salt into the spoon and poured the one in the spoon into the garri.
Seconds later, i was sitting on the breakfast bar, consuming the soaked garri.
Okay, it taste bad tho, but i got no choice.
To fill up my stomache.
“How can i die of hunger in such a house as this?”
****
Soon, I was done drinking the garri, i drank water. Iam okay.
I took the plate to the sink. I thought of doing something.
Cleaning up the kitchen. Seriously?
I laughed.
At least that can make Kelly drive me to the airport with happiness.
So i proceeded to clean up.
I first started by rewashing some of the dishes and untensils. They ain’t dirty but i wanna wash them.
Then i walk to the fridge and pulled it open.
It look a bit dirty.
I went behind and switched off the plug.
I got out the contents inside the fridge and took them into to the sink.
I then cleaned the fridge. Both inside and outside.
Then i walked to the counter to wash the crisper and the rest of all i took out of the fridge.
Soon i was done. I dried them and place them back into the refridgerator.
I still haven’t heard any sound of Kelly.
I shrugged.
And went for a mob and soaped water.
I got them and i began mopping the floor.
I know it’s more than an hour since i began cleaning up this kitchen.
Kelly isn’t up yet?
Just then, i heard his voice. Right behind me, at the door.
“You’re good at this.” He said.
Good at what.
“What do you mean?” I asked without looking behind.
“Cleaning up.” He said.
“A dirty place has to be cleaned up.” I said.
“Including me right?” He asked.
I want to laugh, but i held myself.
“You ain’t seruous Kelly.” I said.
“How the hell do you even know my name when i don’t know yours?” He asked.
I went on with what i am doing.
“Well you should know my name. Everyone does.” He said.
Everyone?

I glanced at him and turned back to what im doing.
“Well, what do you have to say about last night?” He asked.
I rolled my eyes.
“Say. How?” I asked.
“This.” He said and i turned to see him pointing at the red shirt on him. I wore that on him last night.
“I only helped. You were drunk and you threw up, messing yourself with it.” I said.
“I never asked for your help.” He said.
“Really?” I asked, and turned to face him.
“Ya” He said, making a funny face.
I shrugged. “Fine then!” I said and turned back to continue with the mopping.
“Eaten?” He asked.
I don’t want to answer.
I pretended not to have heard.
“Have you eaten?” He asked.
I inhaled, annoyed.
“Yes, i mean no!” I don’t know which one to say.
“I wanna make an order. What do you want to eat?”
Always making an order!
“I said i’ve eaten.” I said.
“You said Yes,then you said No. So i take No, cos there’s nothing in here to eat.” He said.
“I’ve eaten.” I said.
“And you ate?”
“I took garri.”
“Garri?”
“Yes garri. I drank garri. I found some inside the cabinet.” I said.
“Oh.. ”
“How does that taste?” He asked.
I turned to him.
“You’ve never had it before?” I asked. Im not that suprised.
“Yeah.” He said.
“It taste good but i had to drink mine with salt because there’s no sugar.” I said and he made another funny face.
“It tasted horrible then.” He said.
I nodded my head.
He rested his back on the wall and flip through his phone.
I turned and went on with what i am doing.
I don’t know if i should ask him the reason why he was drunk last night.
No! He’s surely going to yell life outta me.
“D–n!.” He said few minutes later.
I ignored him.
“I wasn’t able to make an order.” He said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Something like they’re on close today.” He said.
Bad for him then.
“Then you can go to an eatery.” I said.
Last night he went only to be back,drunk!
“No.” He said.
“Why?” I asked.
I know it has to do with last night’s drama.
“I don’t want to.” He said.
I shrugged, “Okay.”
“Great. I have a option!” He said.
I ignored him.
You’re a woman, and you..you.. i know you can cook. So why don’t we go to the market, buy stuffs and you cook for us to eat?” He said.
I chuckled.
“Really?” I asked.
“Ya.”
“Okay. But please promise that you’re gonna take me to the airport right after it.” I said.
“Ofcos i must.” He said.
“Okay.” I said and he turned to leave.
“Lemme know when you’re ready.”
He said and walked out.
I inhaled.
*****
Twenty minutes later, i was done with tidying up the kitchen.
I walked to my room to shower. I got in to the bathroom.
I pulled off the pyjama.
I turned on the shower and i had my bath.
I walked out to the room, nak*d and without any towel on cos i had used the towel to clean up the mess Kelly made last night.
Im not scared cos i know he can’t walk in but i’ll be quick with my dressing..
I went to the wardrobe and pulled the door open. I got out my blue jean and sweater.
That is the only clothe i had. And i washed them that same friday night, after Kelly gave me this room to stay for the night.
I got out my pa*tie and pulled it.
Have i said that i’ve not been putting on that in here since the friday night?
I had just one and i was keeping it, so i can wear it the day im going back.
Including my b*a.
Then i took the jean and was about to pull it on, when i thought i heard some noise.
I looked at the door, cos my back was on it all this while.
I saw nothing. It’s closed.
I shrugged. And pulled the jean on, followed by my b*a and the sweater.
*****
*Kelly’s point of view*
I was done and ready, but she’s taking too much time., It’s more than an hour now…
I need to go tell her to hurry up.
I walked out of my room, up to her door.
I wanted to knock but i don’t know what happened, the door suddenly opened a little. And..and i saw her nak*d and about putting on a pa*tie. Her back is on the door so i saw her a-s.
Jeez!
Okay, i tried not to look but i cant help not to.
She bent down to put on the pa*tie and my jaw dropped.
Oh F–k!
I blinked my eyes.
Just then i mistakenly hit my arm on the door.
D–n!
I close the door and I ran out, into my room, and shut the door fast but quietly. and fell back on the door.
F–k!
Oh my goodness..
How do i feel right now?
I have no idea.
I just hope she didn’t see me..
And i just pray,..I just pray ,I don’t try to do anything stupid.

*Kelly’s point of view continues*
I heard her knock…
My heart skipped. Im scared she must have seen me.
I gently opened the door. Her face look okay.
“Why looking at me like that?” She asked, narrowing her eyes.
“Nothing.. I mean what kept you so long?” I asked, as i took my eyes off her and turned to get my car keys.
She didn’t answer.
I got my car keys and she walked out of the way.
So i had to walk behind her.
I don’t know why my eyes are so stubborn, they just keep staring at her a-s till we got downstairs.
She opened the door and walked outside, i followed, locking the door.
She got to the car and stood, waiting with her hands inside her sweater pockets.
I inserted the keys, opened the door and got in, she got in too.
She took the front seat.
I turned on the engine and drove off to the gate. Now, i’ll need to open it.
“I’ll go open it.” She said.
I shrugged.
She got down and walked to the gate and pushed it open.
I drove out of the gate, and she closed it back.
I fastened my seat belt.
She got into the car, and did same and i drove off..
“Must be thinking why i don’t have a gateman right?” I asked.
“Not all bachelor do.” She said.
I smiled. I like her answer.
We drove pass the estate gate and into the busy road.
I saw her through the side view mirror, She’s sweating. Probably because of the sweater she’s putting on.
“You know, you should speak out when you need something.” I said without turning.
“What?” She glanced at me.
“That you need some air.” I said and switched on the Air conditioning.
Her eyes followed my hand. Then she brought it down.
“Why do you have to always make mockerys when you’re helping someone?” She asked.
“Who?” I asked.
“Me” She said.
“I don’t know. I just say them.” I said. And turned into another road.
She stared out the window.
I took a quick glance at her. And i noticed for the first time, i guess.
She look so natural.
Her long black hair, she packed into a ponytail. The little hairs in the front curled all the way down her ear.
It lookso sweet.
Her eyelashes are long and full.. Her eyebrows are carved so perfectly for her long face.. Her cheek look so smooth and soft.
I remember her.. her a-s.
God! I don’t want to remember that.
This is temptation and im not ready to fall into it.
Not with her.
“We just passed a market.” She said, looking at me.
“Market?” I looked back through the side mirror and saw it.
I laughed. How does she expect me to buy things there?
A local market!
“I don’t buy things in such dirty places.” I said.
“Okay.” She said and turned back her eyes to the window, staring outside.
**
I got to the Supermarket and drove to a parking lot.
I turned off engine.
I looked at her, she looked at me.
“Here we are.” I said.
We got down and walked into the Super market.
Im not gonna get any of the stuffs into my hands for any thing. you should do that , i’ll walk right beside you.. Just this way ” I said.
“Do you even know how to do any thing at all?” She asked.
“That sounds somehow like an insult.” I said.
“Its just a question.” She said and went for a basket.
I followed her.
“Here.” She said and stretched one basket to me.
I frowned, “What the f–k are you trying to give me to hold. This?” I asked, annoyed.
“You need to hold one Kelly.” I said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Incase mine falls and breaks.” She laughed.
Idiot! I laughed too.
“Here, have it.” She said.
I inhaled, then took it.
I can’t believe i did.
“Look around to see that you ain’t the only guy holding a shopping basket.” She said in a low tone.
What’s my f—–g business if there are thousands of them. I don’t f—–g like what im holding.
“And so f—–g what? I don’t f—–g like what im holding.” I said. Irritated.
“Let’s look over there.” She said in the same tone.
Ignoring anything about the basket.
I clenched my teeth angrily and followed her.
Hell!. No one who know me must see me with this. How the hell did i even thought of going to a Supermarket.
We could have just gone to an eatery.
But Sugar! it’s all cos of her…
Then I felt two things drop into the basket on my hand.
I looked to see two beef Cans inside.
What!
Re: My Personal Taste..(18+) by emperorblog(m): 2:13pm On Oct 12, 2018
I looked at hers, saw two packets of what i don’t know.
“Why not put the beef in yours together with those?” I asked, vexed.
“You gonna get bored carrying just an empty basket around.”
“I won’t!” I said.
“C’mon. We still have lots of things to buy. Your kitchen needs to be filled up.” She said.
“I don’t need them. I don’t f—–g cook.” I said.
She didn’t say anything but walk ahead of me.
I breathed hard and followed her.
******
#One_hour_later.
“Here, have this.” She threw a pack into my basket.
I can’t believe, we still here for over an hour.
My basket is almost full and i find it hard to be able to carry it any longer.
“Can you just stop picking more?” I yelled at her.
“But you..”
“You’ll have to carry this two baskets if you dare touch one item again.” I said.
She shrugged.
“Okay, just this last one?” She pleaded, showing me a cornflakes pack.
“No.” I said.
I don’t even eat that.
“Please..” She begged.
I rolled my eyes.
Why’s she pleading like she’s exceeding today in my house and would be the one to eat it?
Heaven knows, In few hours. she’ll be gone.
“Please Kelly.” She said, insisting.
“Okay fine!” I said and she happily threw into my basket.
What?
I threw a fierce look at her.
“Oh sorry, mine is filled up so much. I can’t put it.” She said.
“You’re f—–g crazy.” I said.
She smiled at me.
What’s funny.
“Hey man. Have this one.” I heard a voice say behind me.. I turned and i don’t know if my heart flinched to find out it’s a long time buddy.
Kelvin. He was holding a basket carrier
“Hey, Kel.” I said, suprised.
“Woah!..Kel.” He said. It seems he just found out it’s me.
We call each other with that abbreviation, Kel.
“Mahn. Kel, It’s been a while.” He said. and we shook hands in the men’a style.
“I lost all contacts about you. What happened?” I asked him. It’s been three years now.
I met Kelvin in school. We were in the same department and he was indeed a brainy then.
He’do help me with so many assignment. while im out, partying and clubing with some new catch.
He’s parents weren’t so rich but they were the middle class. So he’do help me with my school works while i pay him in money in return.
Kelvin is fat. Really fat but he’s good to go anytime.
“Mehn.. Its a long story..” He said.
I smiled.
“Woah! you came shopping? I can’t believe this Man.” He said.
He looked at her.. I did same..
She was looking at the groceries again.
I know she must have added another stuff into the basket.
“Your new catch?” He asked.
I laughed.
“No. Just.. just a good friend.” I lied.
“Wow good friend. She’s really beautiful man. Woah! just take a look at her. Mannn!” He said, and gave me a wink.
I faked a smile.
“Man, i saw a guy struggling to carry the shopping basket filled up with groceries. Decided to get him this, without even knowing it’s my buddy.” He said.
I laughed, “Good of you man..”
I took the basket to get it into the carrier but Kel came,
“Man i’ll help you with that..” He said.
“Ain’t you gonna introduce me to your good friend?” He asked.
“Oh.. my bad!” I said.
“Hey girl..” I called her.
She came over.
F–k! I don’t even know her name.
“Ehm..Mary meet my friend, Kelvin and Kelvin this is Mary, my friend.” I said.
She gave me a fierce look.
I gave her a sign to play cool.
Kelvin smiled at her and she smiled back with such a smile i could swear was
fake.
“Hi Mary” He said stretching his hand for a handshake. She took out her hand and they shaked.
She quickly threw a wicked glance at me.
“Kelly can tell you more about me.” He said.
She smiled. A fake smile.
“I’ll help you guys to the checkout.” He said and went for the basket carrier.
***
“Kel, let me have your contact.” I said to him when we were out of the Supermarket.
He did.
“I’ll give you a call so we chill out some other time.” I said to him.
“No probs man.” He said.
Mary was already in the car.
Mary indeed!
I got into the car.
“Alright Mary. Take care of yourself ok. Bye. Please you gotta continue being a good friend to Kel.” He said to her.
She faked smiled.
“Bye” She said.
“Alright man. See ya later.” I said.
“Cool” He said and gave me a thumb up.
I start up the car engine and drove out of the Supermarket.
“Why did you have to lie about my name?” She asked.
“Cos i don’t know your name and i don’t have a choice girl.” I said.
She crossed her arms, “Funny” She said.
“Im sorry about that.” I said.
She gazed out the window.
I drove on.
After a long silence,..
I want to start a conversation.
“Is your name that special to know?” I asked.
“Rose” She replied.
Seriously?
“You mean Roseline?”
I wanna be sure. That’s my mom’s name.
“Rose.” She said.
Okay, not Roseline
“Alright.” I said.
Its all the same.
“Nice name” I said.
She was silent.
“Im Kelly.” I said, trying to make her laugh.
She chuckled instead.
“You seem funny at times.” She said.
“Yea.” I said, and glanced at her.
She’s really beautiful, just like Kel said.
I don’t know what’s getting into my head.
This have to stop.
This morning, i saw.. i saw her a-s, now im staring at her,. Thinking she’s really beautiful.
“Please stop staring at me and focus on the steering.” She said.
“Don’t think i am.” I said and then focused on the steering.
“So what’s the meaning of all that you pulled there in the Supermarket?” I asked.
“What?”
“Giving me a shopping basket and then, filling it up with heavy stuffs.” I said.
“I didn’t want you to get bored.”
“Bored?” I asked.
“Yeah. Not having anything to hold in a mall can be so boring. And i don’t want you to face such boredom.” She said.
“You just crazy.” I said.
She smiled.
I turned on the radio.
It played Chris Brown’s song, No Air.
I love this song.
She sang along seconds later..
I smiled.
Her voice is beautiful.
She continued, “…I’m here alone didn’t wanna leave
…My heart won’t move it’s incomplete
…If there was a way that I could make you understand…
..But how do you expect me to live alone with just me?
…cause my world revolves around you it’s so hard for me to breathe…
…Tell me how I’m supposed to breathe with no air?
….Can’t live, can’t breathe with no air
…It’s how I feel whenever you ain’t there
…It’s no air, no air..”
I joined in.
“Got me out here in the water so deep..”
She looked at me.
I didn’t look.
We sang on, “…tell me how you gon be without me?
If you ain’t here I just can’t breathe
It’s no air, no air…
No air.. No air…”

*Rose’s point of view*
When we got back to the house.
Kelly said it’s eleven
“I’m really hungry now.” He said.
“Me too.” I said.
Although we grabbed a pizza on our way back.
I don’t know how, but we’ve really gotten to be talking to each other so freely now. And that started right in the Super Market.
And Kelly haven’t been that mean with his words all through the ride home.
We got down from the car and he went behind to open the car boot.
I followed.
He opened the car boot and took out two shopping bags.
He stretched them to me.
I frowned and took it.
“Hey, don’t make a frowny face. You should have known better when you were throwing every item you grab into the basket.” He said.
He then took out a carton of juice.
“Why don’t you give me that to carry, while you carry the bags.” I asked.
“No way.” He said.
He closed back the boot and we walked into the house and to the kitchen.
He dropped the carton of juice on the counter counter and went for a bottle of water in the fridge.
He got one.
“I’ll go upstairs to change.” I said.
“Okay” He said.
I walk up the stairs into my room, and changed into a pyjama, the first pyjama he gave me the first night.
I washed it.
I walk down the stairs back into the kitchen.
He was on the breakfast bar now, going thtough his phone.
I miss mine.
I took out the food items in the bags and proceeded to put them in their right places.
I took the carton of juice as the last item and got them into the fridge.
“Throw me one.” He said.
I did. He grabbed it.
I took out a glass cup and pretended like want to throw it too and he laughed.
“I’ll get it.” He said.
“Really?” I asked.
“You wanna bet?” He asked.
“With what?” I asked.
“That if i grab it, you.. you’ll clean up the sitting-room before going.” He said.
“No. I’m not betting.” I said.
I walked to the table and dropped the cup.
“Here.” I said and walked to the empty carton to grab it and trash it.
“You act like my sister.” He said.
Kelly have a sister?
“She was always afraid to bet with me cos she looses.” He said and laughed.
“You have a sister?” I asked.
“Yeah, my twin. She died.” He said.
I looked up at him with so much sadness.
I can’t believe he had a sister and she’s dead.
It made me remember my family.
My Dad,
My mom,
My brother. All of them were taken away fro me..
Remembering this hurts.
Remembering I was made an orphan just in few days hurts so deep.
I felt tears gather in my eyes. I try so hard for it not to fall out but it did.
I don’t want him to see my tears so i looked out away, and went to the counter.
“Rose, you not saying anything..” He said
“Uh?” I sniffled.
I don’t know why i had to sniffle.
“What’s wrong. You just sniffled.” He said.
“I.. i just feel sad cos of what you just told me about your sister.. Seriously, I hate it when people looses their loved ones. I hate to see that, to hear it..
It hurt so bad. ” I was crying now.
God, i can’t help it.
Remembering my family,
How they all left me.
Remembering my mom’s last weak smile on that hospital bed.
Her last cry.
She couldn’t even stay for me. She left too!
“Rose, you kidding me right?. You’re crying?” He asked. He’s voice is low, and he’s right beside me, staring at me with concerned eyes.
I shut my eyes.
“D--n! You don’t have to cry cos of Kate. It’s over fifteen years now. I’ve gotten over it.” He said.
I looked down.

“Im.. im sorry.” He said.
He’s voice is low and uncertain.
“It’s it’s fine. I’ll get with the cooking.” I said and he walked to the breakfast bar.
I don’t know how i feel being hugged by this guy.
I know he did it cos he’s suprised.
I don’t wanna think something else.
Anyway, im leaving soonest and its gonna be like we never met.
I tried taking a glance behind.
I did..and found that he had left.
The juice is there on the table, with the empty glass cup beside.
I shook my head.
Him and he’s sister might have been so close to each other. They must have been best friends.
I wonder what took her away.
I inhaled as i began to get things ready for cooking.
I was going to rice and chicken pepper soup!
I want to cook soup.
But he insisted on chicken pepper soup.
I shrugged.
Whatever.
I got the raw rice into a pot, I pour a small quantity of water, and turned on the electric cooker and place the pot on it as i stired it with a spoon, Then covered it to par-boil.
Just then, Kelly walked in,
“What can i help you with?” He asked.
“Nothing..” I said. Ofcos there is but i don’t want to bother him with any.
“I know there is..” He said and came to the counter, beside me.
“Will you wash the meat then?” I asked.
“Maybe.” He said.
“Here.” I gave him a bowl with the sealed chicken inside.
He unsealed it and poured the meat inside the bowl, added water and proceeded to wash it.
I looked at him.
“You ain’t good at this.” I laughed.
“Learning” He said, smiling.
I love his smile.
Okay, the rice on fire..
****
“Onions are the only stuff that makes one cry without a reason” He said as i cut some onions. I was in tears and sneezing too.
“Lemme try few pepper on your eyes.” I said playfully.
He laughed.
“What’s your hubby?” He asked.
“Why’re you asking?” I asked him.
“Its a normal question people ask.” He said.
“Okay, I love to listen to music, and i love to dance.. But i’m not really good at dancing.” I said.
“You have a nice voice back there in the car.” He said.
“You think?” I asked.
I don’t know if im flattered by that..
“Yeah..” He said.
“I wasn’t the only one who sang.” I said, trying to remind him that he did too.
Okay, but his voice isn’t that good.
“I know im horribly bad at singing.” He said.
I smiled.. “Not so bad.” I said.
He laughed. “Thanks anyway.”
“So what’s your favourite song.” He asked.
“I love blues.” I said.
“So what’s your favourite song?”
“Uhmm…From This Moment..” I said.
He raised his eyebrow. “Wow, by who?.” He asked.
“Shania Twain.” I said.
“Okay, can you sing it for me?” He asked.
I shook my head “Im not.” I said.
“You ain’t singing?”
“Nop.” I said.
“Then you ain’t going.” He said.
I looked at him. He lips curved in a smirk smile.
“You ain’t serious you know.” I said.
“I am.”
I rolled my eyes.

#At_the_breakfast_bar
“Wow, Rose you’re a good at this..” He once he was through with this food.
“Good at what?” I asked.
“Cooking.” He said as he wenf for his glass of juice.
“And you’re good at eating.” I said.
“Who isn’t?” He said and drank from the glass.
“Im gonna employ you to be my cook.” He said.
I laughed.
“And pay you any amount you want.” He said.
I laughed. “What if i request for one million naira each week?” I asked playfully.
“No probs. All you need to do is to Just keep giving me the wonderful meals with awesome tastes.” He said.
“Kel. You funny..” I said.
“Kel? You shouldn’t call me that. That name is between me and my buddy.” He said playfully and I laughed.

*Kelly’s point of view*
#An_hour_later.
Rose knocked on my door.
I was on my bed.
I don’t want to answer. I don’t know what has gotten over me again.
I just don’t want her to leave.
She is such a good companion.
I’ve never liked to have someone in my house but then i just want to have her. To have Rose stay with me.
I know i would miss her when she leaves.
I know I will!
And i just don’t want that.
I want her to continue staying in this house.
I want her to stay.
God! What she did few hours ago in the kitchen got me.
She cried cos of Kate’s death.
No girl had ever done that.
I couldn’t believe it…
I just wish to know her more. To know everything about her.
She knocked for the fifth time..
I don’t know what to say to convince her to stay.
I don’t know if im doing the right thing.
“Come in Rose.” I said.
She opened the door and walked in..
I know she must be bewildered to see me in shorts and polo shirt.
“Kelly, im ready..” She said, her voice is deep.
I turned to face her.
She’s really beautiful, She’s packed her hair in a more beautiful style., curling the little hair at the front ones again.
This really makes her d--n beautiful.
“Rose.” I called.
She stared at me.
I got up and walked over to her.
I paused to take enough air.
She stared at me.
“Rose there’s a problem” I said.
“What problem?” She said, Her face changing.
“I don’t know how to say this.” I told her, looking into down.
“Just say it out. Anyhow.” She said.
I inhaled.
I don’t know if im sick or something but remembering all that time in the Supermarket, In the car, when we sang those songs.
In the kitchen when she cried really had cos of Kate’s death.
When I hugged her.
Her funny talks.
The way she laugh to my words, and also frowns at few.
Her excellent meal.
Recalling alll this, I just can’t help to see her leave.
To take her to the airport and watch her go.
Im sick.
“Kelly, please say something.” Her tone sounds like a whisper.
I swallowed.
Okay
“Rose, I don’t know how you gonna feel to hear this but i can’t help it.
im..sorry, im really sorry.. i can’t, i can’t let you go Rose ..
I have no idea what’s wrong with me..” I finally said, and looked up her.
Her eyes went wide-open, and she looked confused.
“I don’t get you Kelly.”
.
.
.
.
.
Kelly don’t understand himself. He just told Rose he can’t let her go.
We’ll find out if rose would accept to stay back or decline.

My Personal Taste (18+)
Story by, Rejoice
Episode 22
*Kelly’s point of view continues*
“I don’t get you Kelly.” She said
“Rose please understand me..” I said.
“Understand you?” She asked. Her tone is low.
“Yeah please.” I said.
I don’t know how to express myself anymore.
“Kelly i don’t understand what you’re saying.” She said.
I placed each of my hands gently on her shoulders, “Rose, i don’t want you to go anymore. I want you to stay here in this house.” I said calmly to her.
“You know that’s not possible Kelly.” She said.
“It is. It is.. I can get you whatever you want. I just need you to stay.” I said.
“My work? My house?” She asked.
“F--k the work.. I’ll get you a better work. You don’t have to worry about that..”
“Kelly this is crazy..I mean i can’t stay with you.. That’s kinda improper. Your mom won’t like to see me in your house. And you have a fiance. She’s probably gonna think otherwise if she gets to see me here. I wouldn’t wanna bring troubles.” She said..
“No.. no Rose.. You don’t have to worry about them. I’ll take care of that. ” I begged.
I have no idea what’s wrong with me..
But i know i really want her to stay.
“Kelly, im sorry i can’t.” She said.
“Please.” I begged.
“Im sorry i can’t.” She said.
“Rose..” I called with so much sadness.
“Kelly please i can’t.”She said and shifted away.
My blood rushed. I felt so hurt.
She refused to stay.
I felt so sad.
God! She’s so stubborn!
I walked to her and drew her into a tight hug.
She stayed still. Not moving.
I shut my eyes.“ I wish you could stay. I wish you can stay Rose. I’ll be so lonely in this house without you. I swear it.” I said with so much pain in my heart.
“I’ll miss you..” I said, “Im sorry about my hurtful words. If you stay, I promise never to say them to you.” I said with sincerity.
“Please just stay. Don’t go back i beg you. I’ll make it up to you. We can work together. I want you to teach me how to prepare meals.
How to pick things in the supermarket,
How to sing without my voice going cracky.
Rose,You didn’t even sing your favourite song to me.
Please stay and sing it for me.” I pleaded.
“Kelly, please you’re holding me too tight.” She said.
Seriously?
That is all she could say?
“Just say, you’re staying and i’ll let go of you.” I said.
“Kelly please you have to stop this. It’s getting late. We should be at the airport by now.” She said.
“Im not letting you go then!” I said. holding her more tight.
“Ouch Kelly. You’re hurting me.” She said, trying to relese my arms.. But there are strongly wrapped around her.
“I can’t breathe.” She said.
“Just tell me you’re staying and i’ll let go of you..please” I insisted.
“God! Kelly im grateful you saved me, helped me. Took me to your house. Im so grateful but telling me to continue to stay is impossible. I can’t do that. I need to get back to.. to.. my grandmother.” She said.
I raised eyebrows
“Your grand mother?” I asked. She never told me she has a grandmother. She never even mentioned her family to me.
“Yes, please.” She said.
“You never mentioned to me that you have a grandmother. You didn’t even tell me about your family.” I said.
“That is because you never asked.” She said.
“Yes.. That’s all i wanna ask now. So I want us to sit down and you tell me about you Rose.” I said.
“Kelly please lemme go. I can’t breathe.” She said.
“Fine!” I said and withdrew my arms, annoyed and disappointment.
I’ll let her go.
She can f-----g go!!
She puffed for air.
“Get out of my room. ” I said immediately with a mean tone.
She looked up at me with sad eyes.
I know my outburst is unexpected and hurtful her but she hurt me more by refusing to stay.
“Go away, I wanna change. Or you wanna stand there and keep staring?” I asked, giving her a fierce glare.
She turned and walked out, closing the door behind.
D--n! I kicked the bed angrily.
F--k! my toes hurt.
I shouldn’t have f-----g save her in the start.
No i don’t know what’s f-----g wrong with me..

Rose’s point of view*
The ride to the airport was dull and boring.
No one spoke to each other.
Kelly’s face focused on the steering while mine was turned to the window, staring at cars and people, Houses and shops. Everything my eyes catches.
My mind is blank. I don’t know what to think.
I don’t know what to remember.
I tried recalling my good moments with Kelly.
There in the supermarket.
In his car, when we were riding back home.
The songs that we sang together and the way he laughed at his own bad voice, and said mine’s beautiful.
Then in the kitchen when i.. i.. had to cry after he told me about his sister, thereby making me remember my own family.
Then, he left but came back to help me out. He was nice all through those times.
We really came along,
Then only for him to tell me not to go… To stay in his house.
Why!
I can’t. I just can’t do It.
Okay, I do want to. Yes, i can’t lie to myself. I want to continue to stay in his house.
I can’t even tell the reason why i want to. But i know i want to stay.
But Im scared…Im scared of his his family, his mom, his fiance.
I wouldn’t want to get arrested or even get killed.
I believe rich people can go any limit just to achieve what they want.
Im scared she’s gonna think im Kelly’s girlfriend.
Yes. i just think so.
I remember how mad she had been yesterday when she thought she saw someone in his house.
I don’t wanna be a big trouble between him and he’s mom.
I really have to go on with no!
Kelly could get mad at me whichever way he want, but i can’t accept his request.
I can’t.
He turned into the airport.. And drove to the parking lot.
We got down, and I followed him.
We walked into the terminal and up to a ticketing counter. A check-in staff, A slim fair lady attended to us.
We passed on the required details. luckily, i got a ticket for a Plane taking off in the next hour.
I have no luggage on me.
We walked to other areas in the Terminal and i completed my flight procedures.
“I’ll be on my way now..” He said after we were done.
I nodded, “Thank you.” I said.
“Have this.” He said, stretching a smartphone to me.
“Would help you when you get into trouble.” He said.
I smiled and took it.
“Thank you..” I said to him.
I tapped the screen and there is an MTN network showing on a side of the screen.
He added sim too.
I looked up at him,
“Thank you” I said.
He stayed silent.
“Kelly, can i have your number please?” I asked calmly.
But he turned and walked away.
*
*
I walked to the lounge, and found a sit..
Im sad cos Kelly couldn’t give me this contact.
He’s really upset that i refused to stay.
And that hurts me so much..
Im never gonna speak to him again.
Im never gonna see him again.
Thinking about all this hurts and i just feel like cursing myself for refusing to stay.
I know im gonna miss him. Im gonna miss Kelly Ejifor.
God, i can’t believe it had to be him.
I don’t even think of Jonny again.
He’s such a b-----d.
But Kelly is someone i think of right now.
I think of the short moment we had together.
He was so nice and funny.
I still remember the scent of his cologne.
Those time he hugged me right there in the kitchen, while the sink tap was running and then an hour ago, in his room.
Those moments.. those moments wanna make me cry for not staying back.
He begged me, he poured out his feelings to me. Told me that’s gonna be bored without me around.
Told me that he’s gonna miss me.. And i declined his request.
I know he’s broken right now.. He just want us to be friends and i turned him down.
I felt tears gather in my eyes and don’t even have a hankerchief on me.
I tried hard holding them back but then it dropped.
God! memories of Kelly just got tears out of my eyes..
I quickly got my face down and wiped them off with my thumb.
Can I bear to leave him..
To go, after he pleaded to me and even swore not to say hurtful things to me..
Oh no.. oh no!
I need to go back to Kelly, or i might go crazy thinking about him.. about how broken he is now. About how lonely he feels..
But how do i find him..
How?
I scrolled through the phone. To see if i can find any means to get to him.
Oh my God! I found his number on the contact
He stored it. He stored it with ‘Kelly.
I quickly dialed the line, and it rang.
He picked up too soon.
“Kelly!” I cried and jumped up from the sit.
I know People are staring at me now. But i don’t care.
“Rose” He called with a low tone. He’s voice sound gloomy.
“Kelly, please come back to the Airport. I don’t think i can continue with this journey.” I said, with tears.
“Im here in the parking lot. I didn’t leave. I knew you would call. I knew you wouldn’t go… ” He said.
“Oh my God! seriously Kelly!” I yelled
and ran out of the Terminal.
I halted and searched for his car.
Then I saw him standing beside his car with his hands in his trouser pockets.
“Kelly!” I called with so much happiness.
And walked with so much eargerness to him and stopped right at his front.
He smiled.
I smiled too.
“So are you gonna stay?” He asked.
“Yeah. I wanna be your house mate.” I said, smiling.
He smiled that broad smile that comes right from the bottom of one’s heart.
“Come here.” He said as he got out his hands from his pockets and spread them wide, smiling.
My smile widened as I fell into his arms and we hugged.
.
.
.
.
.
Wow… Really romantic..
…..Where’s my own Kelly?
I wanna be your house mate ooh.
LOL..
wow nice one
