†*********************************†

Chapter 32 -- 04


She texted me that night, trying hard to get us to move past her aggressive show of love, in her own way of saying that she cares or something. All of my efforts to get her to see how much she hurt me with her words and actions was futile. In her words, she was only responding in like manner to how I had laid out my thoughts and feelings. She had called me cold, or my actions actually, but it was pointless arguing with her. She was always right; it was something I had always known but the thought of having those long legs on my shoulders while I drove in and out of her made me turn my eyes from the truth.

She started the chat and ended it as usual. Every one of her recent actions have tugged at me fiercely but somehow, I have kept the urge to lay my mind on her. It was no longer news that I wasn't in the steering wheel of this relationship of ours, maybe I have never been, but with my little interaction with Debbie the past few months, I have realized how lonely I really am. I couldn't have anything with Debbie as much as I wanted; she was a no-go area for me. She was a beautiful woman, the kind that folks now term as slimthick, as in, she was perfect in what I wanted physically in a woman, unfortunately, character and other vices have made things impossible for us.

Anita on the other hand has countless red flags but despite that, for now, she was the only person I could actually be with. She seem lonely and I felt her aggressive behavior this was her own way of trying to reach out to me – reach out to someone. Perhaps, she didn't know how to deal with jealousy, criticism ( that much was fun), being unable to have her way and every other vices. Yeah, it felt like I was finding excuses for her desire to show her Choleric side even when it wasn't needed. That act of hers destroys things, perhaps, I should let her know; but should I? I needed her for the sex as something had awakened in me after tasting what the act was all about. It was a life-changing experience for me yet doing it with her again have been at the back of my mind for a while because of a lot of factors, including her behavior.

Perhaps, I am lying to myself. In truth, playing around with Debbie has reduced the urge to be with Anita sexually. After all, once ejaculation has been achieved, the work has been done. Psychologically; wanking and actual coital sex are two different things but they do bring about the same results. But I have desired the latter for so long and after getting it so easily from a woman just because she has some unexplained feelings for me has made it my favourite.

So, I will definitely stick with Anita for the time being since Debbie is not feasible, until I resume school and then I pick who I want for a future partner amongst the thousands of girls in the university.

Checking Twitter came to my mind and after deliberating for a while, I finally decided to do that and lo and behold, I found nothing. Nothing at all; not even a single text from Debbie. It wasn't that she hasn't been active as her tweets and retweets shows that she has been tapping away recently, making jokes and adding her voice with the trends popular at the moment. But she refused to send me any message and after going through her tweets and replies, there was also nothing referring to me or what I did to her. Nothing at all.

"God bless my husband and my family," wasn't something she tweets regularly but one that has one been pinned on her profile not too long ago. Her husband doesn't tweet and I am sure doesn't understand what that entails, so the aim wasn't her trying to be romantic to a man who couldn't read what she had written or to people who do not know the identity of her husband; No, the message was aimed to mock me.

She was trying to make it seem like I was never going to come between her and her husband; that I was never going to measure to her precious husband whom she had been mocking and dragged in the most derogatory way after I had given her the business down below.

Suddenly, he was now a good husband and that God should bless him after I had said that we couldn't be together as much as she wished for it. This woman was hilarious. She deliberately pinned that message on her profile with a silly picture of another family but not hers. She wanted me to see it but if she thinks for one second that was going to hurt me then she must be a joker.


If anything, I will be glad that she has now seen reason and realize that being with me at the present was impossible. She should stick with her man and yes, God has to bless him really well for him to be able to take adequate care of two wives. She was right in that statement and I sent an "Amen" to that statement just to spite her. Maybe I shouldn't have done that but I just wanted her to know that I understood what message she was trying to pass across. The feeling to do that couldn't be ignored.

I slept off and went off to work the next day. Work was fine with the kids; madam didn't show up that day but she wouldn't be missed any way; the kids had fun that day since it was Friday; right from the beginning of lesson which was more than an hour playing around on the assembly ground doing sporting activities to regular exercises which most of us – men – partook in, to board games at the tail end of lesson. It was mighty fun and a great way to forget some of the things bothering my mind.

I returned to work after my kids left. It was my work and not that of anyone else. It was while I was at this I realized that Anita asked me to do something for her before I travelled and it has slipped out of my mind completely. She had sent a PDF to me containing some new rules she was trying to put in place in her classroom for the new students. I had promised that I would look into it but didn't really think about it because as at that time, my mind was only on the fact that Anita was upset with me not telling her about my intended travel.

I was annoyed that she wouldn't be with me or even if I give me a kiss, not even a peck and of course I had an examination coming up that I wasn't really prepared for. The drama after the examination didn't help matters at all. Mr. Kunle discussing about new class rules with Jenny at the next class. It was then I remembered and quickly brought out a spare cardboard to start her work as soon as possible before she remembers my matter. I didn't want any dramas or provocations before I do what I didn't want to.

There was so much provocations I could take. So much.

Actually, I didn't have a spare cardboard but she asked me to help out and I promised to do that. It was my word and integrity at stake.

"Mr. Alex, how far?" Jenny asked just as I was marking my working space on the cardboard. Oh boy! I was yet to even mark her own cardboards at all.

"Work is fine but I haven't even started yet." I responded and she frowned at that. She didn't reply me but went forward to check her work and see for herself that indeed I was yet to begin a thing. She didn't like that; her look was all I needed to know that.

"Mr. Alex, you promised to help out and you haven't even started yet. Why?" She asked in an annoyed tone that reeked of disappointment and irritating entitlement. I only promised to help out, not that she was paying me for it. I didn't like that tone one bit.

"I promised to help and I will, but not now. I have a lot of work on my desk at the moment so things are a bit slow. Relax." I tried to calm things down but even at that, her scowl never left her face. She was still very pissed. Some women were just annoying to say the least; give them a finger and they will later demand for the whole arm.

"I understand but I really need this work as soon as possible." She murmured, after which she took her own cardboards, placed them on the desk next to my work table. She didn't say anything or do anything after that but the message clear; she wanted me to focus on her own work and leave what I was doing.

I just chuckled at her reaction as I wondered just how I was going to react to her childish behavior.

I was still contemplating as I stared at her work when my classroom door was pulled opened. Anita walked in majestically like she owned the school. She curtailed her flamboyant act which was supposed to be directed at me. She was definitely not expecting to meet someone else in my classroom. The arrogant look in her face melted to a genuine smile when she saw Jenny. She actually liked the shorter woman.

"Ms. Jenny, how is work going?" The taller female asked as they got into their usual female back and forth while I tried to balance things. I moved to Jenny's work desk and started marking the work spaces on her cardboards.

"Mr. Alex, how is it going with my work?" She asked when she saw me working on a cardboard. I couldn't be sure that was the reason why she was here but since there was a third party in our midst, she had to improvise and asking about her work was the best way to do that.

"I am still working on it." I replied, not bothering to look her way. She didn't answer me and I didn't see look at what she was doing as facing my work was my priority at that point.

"Is this cardboard for my work?" She asked and I looked her way to see what she was talking about. I shivered and cursed myself the moment I saw her with my phone.

Shit!

I had completely forgotten about the fact I had placed my phone on her cardboard. The phone screen doesn't go off except when I press the power button so she must have seen the PDF she sent me on my screen and recognize that cardboard to be ours. Our question was just rhetoric.

"Um, I have been preoccupied with a lot of work...."

"Who owns the ones you are working on?" She asked, cutting me off. Her face already changing expression.

"Oh, it's mine. I asked Mr. Alex to help me out with a few things. It seems like you did as well." Jenny answered for me as a good friend would but all she did was ignite a flaming rage as I saw how Anita snarled, her nose flaring when she heard those words and started coming my way.

I thought she was going to hit me or something but no; she walked to where I was working and flipped the desk and the contents on it to the ground. I was shocked at her display of rage and so was Jenny who screamed, "Ms. Anita!"

Oh boy, what mess have I caused now. Two Cholerics at each other's throats with me in the middle was surely a recipe for disaster. What a way to start the weekend.

Re: Choices: Another Perspective by Ibunkun1(m): 1:49pm On Jun 02
It's either Anita is trying to cover up some deep insecurity issue or just plain egocentric. And Alex needs to get a grip on that relationship or else

As for Debby I know she's cooking some revenge shit for Alex. Let's see cool

I am not abandoning the story but I ask for your patience until I have gotten the basics right. Hopefully, the break won't be long and your favourite writer will be back.
