The Things Girls 🔞
” Amazing Grace, how sweet thy sound,” I sang melodiously, watching Tommy with a fluttering heart.
Today was Saturday and it was choir practice. Tommy was the choir leader. He was tall and handsome and with a spiritual aura that appealed to me. He was loved by everyone in church. The elders loved him, my pastor loved him, the choirs loved him, everyone in church loved him. Aside from his cuteness, he had an amazing soprano voice. That kind of voice won him many admiration from different girls.
” That would be all for today,” Tommy said, concluding our choir practice. ” You guys are going to lit service up tomorrow with your amazing voices.”
Everyone agreed it was definitely a satisfactory practice for tomorrow’s Sunday practice.
” Cynthia,” Tommy called, waving me back as I was heading out the door.
I turned back and peered at him through my spectacles. ” Umm…yeah?”
Tommy approached me, showing those perfect we’ll arranged teeth. ” I forgot to mention but you look amazing today.”
I smiled. He loves using the word “amazing” all the time. ” Thank you for the compliment.”
” So, I was wondering, how about your friends, Gloria and Bella?”
He was always asking about those two girls. I couldn’t figure out why.
” Gloria and Bella are fine.”
” I didn’t see them in church last week.”
I shrugged. ” I have no idea what’s wrong with those two girls. Bella and Gloria are just my roommates. They’re not really taken with church activities and stuffs.”
” Well, I’m not surprised,” he became serious. ” I saw Gloria with a guy this evening.”
” She’s always going out with men, Tommy,” I said. ” It’s nothing new really.”
” That’s my point. You see, I’m not comfortable with your roommates. Ever since I saw those two girls, I’ve been thinking about you. Look, I don’t want anything bad to happen to you. I wouldn’t want you to get influenced by them.”
This was new, coming from Tommy and he wasn’t even the first person to be telling me this. My roommates were always viewed by people with mixed thoughts. After service last two Sundays ago, my pastor, Pastor Sam,
approached me and asked me about them because he’d saw me talking to them. When I told him they were my roommates, he immediately disapproved of them and warned me not to get influenced by them.
Bella and Gloria weren’t bad in anyway but the things they do makes people thinks they were bad dirty girls.
Chuks grinned like a fool at me, hoping after tonight’s dinner, I was going to go to bed with him.
” So what would it be, Gloria?” He asked as the waiter arrived. ” Order whatever you like.”
I didn’t waste time. ” Umm, I’d like two Cold stone Ice-cream, a nice hot fish barbeque, chicken and chips, orange cocktail, a good delicious pepper soup and salad.”
I saw Chucks stiffened but I didn’t care a hoot.
I continued. ” The cold stone Ice-cream Should be packaged along with the fish barbeque. I’ll take those home. As for my pepper soup and chicken and chips, I’ll eat have them right here and oh please, don’t forget to add my salad. I hate it when the salad is too slippery. Make it thick and nice, okay?”
The waiter stared at me and then turned back to Chucks to check if it was alright or not to get my orders. Chuks nodded and waved him away.
The moment he left, Chucks turned to me with his voice at edge. ” What do you want to do with all those things you ordered? We came here for dinner not to throw a party.”
I glared at him. ” Yes, you’re absolutely right. We came here for dinner and if I’m not mistaking, you asked me to order whatever I want didn’t you?”
” Yes I did but I never asked you to order the whole restaurant. Who do you think is going to foot the bill at the end?”
” You ofcourse,” I retorted. ” You were the one who came to me during lectures and asked me out for dinner. If you know you won’t be able to foot the bills then let me know. I have better things to do at home.”
Chuks took a deep breath and calmed down. He must’ve sensed I wasn’t going to give him a chance. ” It’s alright, Gloria. Don’t let us argue Because of food.”
I rolled my eyes, shaking my legs impatiently. This guy was wasting my time and he was as boring as hell. If I’d known he’d be this wacky, I’d have turned him down when he approached me this afternoon during lectures. Unfortunately I was hungry and broke. I wasn’t sure Cynthia would cook tonight because she would be at church for her long choir practice. So when Chucks arrived with a dinner offer, I jumped at the opportunity.
This was my meal ticket and I was going to take it whatever comes with it.
” So tell me more about yourself, Gloria,” Chuks began as the waiter brought my chicken and chips covered with salad and tomato sauce. My cocktail arrived as well.
My eyes took Into view of the incredible dinner and I smiled inwardly. I was Soo hungry I would have rushed the meal but I was a lady and good tabe manners was something that comes in mind first especially when in front of a man.
So to my annoyance, I began forming.
I didn’t touch the chicken. Instead, I leaned forward placed my hand lovingly on my cheeks. He’d asked another boring question but I was used to that anyway.
” There’s nothing special about me. I’m a student like you are.”
He didn’t seemed to like the way I wasn’t taking his conversation seriously. But he was desperate to have me hooked. I could read through him. By buying me dinner and engaging me in a long interesting talk, the next step was to have me underneath him in the other room. Well that wasn’t going to work because Chuks didn’t seemed like my type. He wasn’t that rich and I could tell he must’ve hustled the little money he was using to buy me dinner tonight.
” Well, I heard you were the most beautiful girl in school?” He said, his eyes trying to leave my dangling boobs exposed at the v neck of my dress.
Another boring talk. I hate nonesense. You know what, let me just eat dinner.
” Is that all you heard about me?” I asked, holding my cutlery and slicing through a flesh of the chicken before me.
” Well I also heard you’re into many things,” he said, licking his lips.
I smiled cause I knew exactly where he was heading to. ” Things like what?”
” Like, you love hanging out with men and all those stuffs. Someone tipped me off you’re a….umm…..”
He was looking for the right words to outlay his message so I helped him. ” That I’m a call girl, right?”
He wasn’t comfortable with the way I admitted it. ” Yes, that’s what they said.”
I tasted the chicken. Mm, it was delicious. ” Yes I’m a call girl, so what?”
He shifted uneasily. ” I’m just surprised that’s all.”
” Let me ask you, why had you asked me out? To start asking me some silly questions?” I asked, deciding this was the time to let him know I wasn’t taking this conversation lightly anymore. ” Are you planning to sleep with me after dinner just because you heard I’m a call girl?”
He gulped and I saw his eyes narrowed. ” Not at all. I just wanted us to hang out with each other—”
” And then have fun in your bedroom, right?” I cut him short.
Chuks shooked his head. ” Don’t say things like that, Gloria. Listen I like you and I—”
” Excuse me,” a man said, stepping into our talk. ” I am Mr Adeola I don’t mean to intrude on your dinner but are you two together?”
I regarded him with interest. He was a matured man probably in his early forties, wearing a flowing traditional wear that was well tailored and ironed. I took details of his expensive wrist watch, the phone he held in his other hand and his classic shoes. He stank of money. I could smell it.
If he wasn’t too black and ugly with a big rounded pot belly, I’d have called him handsome.
” Yes,” Chuks said, not liking him on first sight. ” We’re together.”
” Oh, my apologies,” he said and tried to turn away. ” I saw you two arguing and I thought—”
” It doesn’t matter what you thought,” Chuks snapped. ” We’re busy, can’t you see that? Now you can leave.”
I glared at Chuks. How dare he talk to an elderly man like that. So it’s a bad thing for a man as rich and wealthier than him to pick interest in a girl like me? What does Chuks have anyway? As a matter of fact, what I’m I doing out here with Chuks when a rich man is trying to seek for my attention?
” Chuks,” I called. ” That’s soo rude of you.”
Chuks turned to me with hardened eyes. ” What do you mean? I brought you here. He can’t just barged in and start asking stupid questions.”
” It’s alright,” Adeola spoke, seeing he was about to cause a scene. ” It’s my fault. I shouldn’t have interrupted your dinner. I’ll take my leave now.”
But I wasn’t that stupid to let this man slip through my fingers Because of a guy like Chuks.
I took out a slip of paper and a pen and wrote my name and phone number on it. Chuks and Adeola watched me as I scribble on the paper. Then folding it into two, I gave it to him.
” Here’s my number,” I smile, batting my eye lashes at him. ” Call me anytime.”
Adeola collected the paper and glanced at Chuks. ” What about your—”
” He’s not my boyfriend,” I laughed, teasing Chuks. ” We’re classmates. We just came to have dinner.”
” Gloria?!” Chuks started, shocked.
” Shhhh,” I shushed him up.
Adeola smiled. ” Well in that case, I’ll call you later. You’re Gloria right?”
My lip curved into a sexy smile. ” Call me whatever you like, dear. But Gloria is fine. That’s my name, Gloria.”
