The sun peeked out from behind fluffy clouds, its afternoon had just begun. It glances into the room, and glistens on the polished furniture. with it dances a cool breeze, bringing in the scent of freshly cut grass.
Somewhere in the recesses of the room lay a girl… a woman. She is beautiful. Her eyes are closed and she is still; sprawled, as she is, on the chaise lounge at the foot of which is a dog. She is garbed in an aqua blue chiffon gown with a sprinkling of gold on the neckline and at the edge of the dress. The playful breeze flirts playfully with the hem-line of her dress, kissing her ankles gently and sauntering out.
It is a beautiful picture… would have been but for the discrepancies around; the long dried tear streaks on her face, the gash on her forehead, the shards of broken glass that surround the furniture, the rip at the front of the gown and the blood…
The dog ears perk up. There’s the sound of hurried feet as a man runs in. His eyes take in the brutal scene that greet him; pausing his sprint. He is now reluctant to approach. Rooted to the spot by the fear of what might be… His hands are shaking by his side, his heart is beating heavily in his chest, sweat trickles down his back. The air in the room becomes too heavy to breathe… he starts to breathe through his mouth. A sound that wakes the dog. He wills his legs to run as he takes a step towards her form but he is in a daze… a daze of disbelief. Each step closer to the realization of what the walls might have seen in this room .

He checked his watch for the umpteenth time. Thirty minutes! He had been downstairs now for thirty whole minutes. How long did it take to dress and she had already been dressed when he had left her… just the ‘petite parfum’ as she called it. He had already checked the car, made sure the TV was on for the dog and looked through the papers. Again. He took in another breathe.
“How do I look?”
He snorted. He wasn’t in the mood of all these little games she persisted in. They were going to be late. As usual.
“C’mon let’s just go.”
He saw her face fall. He did not need this… It wasn’t like he wanted her sad but the later they got the more of a waste the evening will be. He really didn’t want to be stuck with her all evening. She’d just make the evening suck.
Wura couldn’t help the disappointment that welled up in her. it was stupid really, thinking that wearing a pretty dress would suddenly make everything go back to normal. Suddenly, she wasn’t good enough, or funny or interesting anymore. She had hoped the week she had taken off work would change things… remind him…of what she did not know. He knew she loved him with everything in her… why then did he persist in treating her like the lice she had found on Fluffy.
Truth be told, she didn’t know who he was or what he wanted anymore… She felt she had suddenly become something of a bore to him. Maybe he had met someone else, Or maybe it was sex? He probably thought she was being childish about the whole virginity thing… She wished now that she hadn’t thought up this week together, hadn’t asked to come along… he wasn’t excited by her coming along but she knew if she capitulated he would be even less pleased.
“C’mon let’s just go.”
With a deep sigh, a heavy heart and regrets a mile long, Wura preceded him out into the sunshine.
(on the phone)

Jesus! Which babe now? Another one… how am I going to get rid of Wura first, not to talk of another one…
A confused sigh escaped him. He felt a hand on his thigh and felt irritation well up on him. This girl really didn’t know when to take a hint.
“what’s wrong honey?”
… but what if it’s someone I know, like a BB contact? BB contact won’t be bad oh… those babes fresh die!

“Look, babe, I need to concentrate on driving.”
