I came back from a friend’s house 3days later and saw a brand new infinity jeep parked in front of our hostel.
It wasn’t a new thing to find flashy cars parked in front of our hostel but something was peculiar about this one.
The plate number had the name “STELLA – 001" inscribed on it.
My roommate Stella had purchased a brand new jeep.
My eyes widened with envy and I felt bad. I was yet to buy simple camry while my roommate owned two jeeps.
And what was more? The plate number was customized. Not even ordinary plate number. And both of us were in the same business.
Was it that there was something I wasn’t doing right or was it that Stella was hiding certain things from me?
I couldn’t tell.
I quietly entered our room. Stella was jubilating with some friends when I came in.
“Linda baby!” Stella hailed as I walked in. “Meet my wonderful roommate.” She said turning to her friends and swinging her left hand towards me.
“Linda baby! Welcome,” Stella’s friends chorused.
“Thank you dearies,” I replied with a smile on my face. “Please what are we celebrating?” I asked pretending like I hadn’t seen the jeep outside.
“Stella bought a new jeep,” they chorused aloud.
“Wow! Baby I’m so happy for you,” I shouted hugging my roommate. “This truly calls for celebration.” I added like I was happy.
But then I didn’t know what to do.
A thought flashed across my mind to plan with my male friends who were cultists and snatch the new jeep from her – to show the extent my envy had gotten to.
A second thought countered the first and informed me of the consequences that awaited me should the plan fail. But then the envy I felt inside overshadowed the second thought and I seriously started thinking of how best to actualize my plan.
I followed up the plan and was very happy when a week later my roommate ran into our room crying profusely that her new infinity jeep had been stolen at gunpoint.
I pretended to be shocked by the news and shouted at the top of my voice like the news had hurt me but deep inside I was happy.
I couldn’t watch my roommate outdo me in a business the both of us were into together so I had to do what I did.
Since I ventured into the business, it had been from one misfortune to the other while my roommate had been having a smooth ride all along.
Then a thought crossed my mind of the possibility that my roommate must have charmed me to slow down my progress.
“How come I never thought of this?” I asked myself wondering aloud.
I knew of one spiritualist whose temple was located around our campus and I wasted no time in consulting him...
