My Woman-Episode 3

Brenda went home after she got back to the lecture hall to find Dave gone. Indeed the night was long… she stayed up all night remembering her encounter with this new acquaintance. She didn’t even know his name. She kept replaying the entire scenario; so much so, she forgot to call Mr. Edwards.

Brenda tossed and turned in her bed as Dave’s face kept appearing in her mind.

“Am I in love?” She asked herself. “No, it can’t be, I don’t love like that. Probably I’m just crushing on him. Yeah, that’s the word -Crush! I’m definitely crushing on him… Let’s see what tomorrow has in store,” She told herself.

It wasn’t different for Dave… He was also at home thinking of this mystery girl he had met in class when he was interrupted by a knock on the door.

It was his ex-girlfriend Amelia. Dave had been trying to get back with her for a while now. Prior to the day, he hadn’t seen her for almost 8 weeks. All his messages and text were either not answered or answered with short curt one-liners suggesting she was too busy to care.

Amelia was success-obsessed and an amateur actress. She was always on the move with Celebrities and movie directors all over the country. She hardly had time for Dave and their relationship; and that had caused their break up.

He was pleasantly surprised to see her on his doorstep.

“Wow what brings you here? Let’s go in,” he requested.

“Sorry I can’t, I’m with someone, he’s waiting for me across the street. I just came here for one thing,” she said

“Hmm, what is it?” Dave asked.
She opened her purse and took out a ring. It was a promise ring that he had given her when they were dating.

“Here is your cheap ring Dave, please stop calling me. Things are opening up for me, I have a real man in my life not a silly student and I don’t need any setbacks.” Amelia said and threw the ring at him.

You can imagine the look on Dave’s face at this point. He was too hurt to utter a word. After throwing the ring at him, Amelia turned around and walked away without so much as a backward glance.

Dave was left with mixed emotions. Here he was hurt by Amelia’s callous treatment of him, but somehow, thoughts of Brenda were still strong in his mind. He sat up all night and relayed the scenes of the day through his mind.

As the pictures ran through his mind like a movie, he realized that he was too enamored by the thought of this new girl that Amelia seemed more and more like a bad dream that he had bumped into. He couldn’t believe that he had been struck by the love bug – he counted himself too much a realist for such things to happen to him.

The more he thought about it though; he knew something had happened to him. Wow! He thought to himself, such things happen only in movies or novels. He decided to go to campus early the next morning with the hope that he’d get to interact with her before classes began.

The night passed and Dave was on the move very early the next morning. His first lecture for the day was for 9:30 am, and by 7:55 he was just 5 minutes away from the school.

He got to campus and headed straight to the lecture hall. His heart leapt with joy when he spied Brenda sitting all alone somewhere about the middle of the hall. He tried desperately to contain his excitement and not show off his eagerness. At that moment however he realized how much he had fallen for this stranger.

Time and space seemed to hold their breath and he didn’t quite know how he breached the distance because in a short while, there he was not far from her.

Their eyes met and for a while they just kept staring at each other. She stood up and went towards him. When she got in front of him, she looked straight into his eyes and asked, “What’s your name?”

“Dave” He answered conscious of nothing but her; “Brenda” she continued without waiting for him to even ask.

They stood there staring at each other. Their words were few if any. They had no recollection of having said any words, their eyes did all the talking and before you knew it, they were in each other’s arms.

The kiss was so real that they could feel each other’s breath as they rubbed against each other. They got wrapped up in the intensity of the kiss. It was like everything else seemed to disappear; they seemed to be the only ones in the universe, this seemed just right, like only them mattered. Everything stood still; it felt like eternity, his soul reaching out to her soul in a deep embrace.
She didn’t know what she was doing; all she knew was that it felt like she was home. She felt powerless yet complete like this was what she had been waiting for all her life. She closed her eyes much more, wrapped her hands around his neck slowly feeling the coarse hair at the back of his neck and settled down to enjoy the moment.

“What do you think you are doing?”

The voice sounded so angry and enraged, it tore into their reminiscing, jerking them back to reality. They tore away from each other with brutal force to face the stranger that had interrupted their special moment.

Brenda’s eyes first widened and then narrowed as she looked and saw Mr. Edwards the lecturer, hands on his sides, eyes blazing red and brows set in a dark cloud looking the picture of hell about to explode…
