[story] A cup of passion episode 6






Jake sat on the bed with clothes strewn on the

floor.All the shirts he had on his mind to wear

had faded out.He took his needle and thread to

amend his trouser underneath.No


He wore the trouser he amended and a faded

green striped shirt.He combed his hair and his

beard fair enough as it was so bushy,he had

his haircut once in a while.

He walked out of the compound and waited

outside the gate.He checked his wristwatch,the

time says 06:35pm.He looked around uneasily

waiting for Angela’s arrival.Soon had he

wait,when he saw a car coming far off.That

must be her,He thought.The car raced towards

him and stopped before him.”Hop in

darling”Angela said.Jake opened the door and

sat right beside her.Angela inspected him and

saw how shabbily he dressed,Unattractive his

face looked.She felt somehow but cheered up

and ignited her car.

They got to Maclaurels and saw couples.A lot

of cars and jeeps were much at the parking

spot.Angela found difficulty to park her Toyota

camry but thanks to Jake with his masculine

wisdom,she saw a place to park.

Angela got down from the car and Jake’s

mouth was agaped on seeing the skimpy

ankara gown she wore which brought out her

feminine shape perfectly.Angela took of hold of

his hands pulling him behind her as she

walked.She was so popular as everyone

greeted her,she walked deeper in with Jake

Until she came across her two lousy dreaded

friends,Benita and Molly.

“Ohh..Angie babe”Molly said hugging Angela

who frowned,rolled her eyeballs as she broke


“How are you,ladies?”Angela asked.

“Fine..Is he your driver?”Benita said haughtily

looking and pointing at Jake.

“Him..ohh no…He’s my boyfriend”Angela said

firmly while jake looked at her in surprise,

“Oh my..He’s soo ugly!!….hahaha”Molly said

laughing sarcastically.Benita added”He’s just

like a white chimp”.They laughed again.

Angela made no reply and pulled jake’s hand

moving away.Sadness weighed Jake beneath

his mind down.

Angela apologised severely and almost went on

her knees but Jake assured her all is fine.

Soon it was time to eat at the table.Angela

looked at the other guys and how cool and

handsome they were,she preferred Jake but

knew she had too tush him up.Money isn’t a

problem..Is it?.

They started eating Amala and Egusi soup with

lots of assorted meat.Jake and Angela were the

only ones who didn’t feed and kiss each other

as they ate.The other couples were doing so.

“Hello..You’re Jake right?Benjamin suddenly

threw a question at him.Jake was startled as all

was quiet and the other couples looked at him.

“Ye..Ye..Yes sir”Jake stuttered.

“Can you tell us more about you?..We are all

ears”Benjamin said and kissed Bolanle’s cheek.

“Hum.I’m Jake miles”

“300 level student of the physics


e said.

“Which University?”Benjamin asked scornfully.

“Wesleyan methodist university”He replied.

“How old are you?”Ben asked again.

“I’m 23 years old”He replied.

They bursts into laughter.Angela looked uneasy

and he tapped Jake to sit.

“Get up..”Chief Malinze roared at Jake.The guy

shook and stood up.

“Your mates are reading,you’re moving with

your god fathers.Partying with girls.Boy,You

are wretched.Just look at your physique,you

are nothing but a last finger”Chief Malinze said

finally and sipped his wine.

“But what’s all this!!”Angela screamed getting

up.”I have the right to choose who i want and

you’re all insulting him.Woe betide you all!!”.

Jake walked out of the dinner joint.He was so

sad and cleaned the tears forming in his

eyes.”Jake!!!!”.,He heard a voice shrieking

behind him and he waited to see,it was Angela


“Jake..i’m so sorry..i didn’t bring you here to

be embarassed”Angela said tearfully.

“It’s fine”He said and started walking

away.Angela ran and blocked his way.

“Is that what you’ll say?”Angela inquired.

“See..Angela..I just got over a girl’s issue..i

don’t want qualms anymore..i just wanna be

focused..I don’t think i would be seeing you

anymore”Jake said.

“What??..You don’t mean it?”Angela said in a

shaky voice,tears welled up in her eyes.

“i’m sorry angela..all the best”Jake said and


“No..Jake..wait!!”Angela shouted as tears

flowed freely from her face.

“Jake..I want you to know you’ve created a

vacuum in my heart which no one can fill.I

love you,Jake”Angela said and firmed her lips


Jake hesitated for few seconds but simply

walked away shaking his head in sadness.

Angela looked at him as he was going and

knew she was in love,hot passionate love.She’s

d–n ready to give what it takes to have Jake in

her palm.She broke down in tears once more.
