“What’s smelling so badly! Do you want to poison him! Yuck!” Cindy laughed at Becky.
Becky frowned deeply and glanced down inside her pot.
She had been trying to mix the recipes for fried rice but she ended up cooking pepper rice.
She glanced over at Cindy. She was making groundnut soup and pounded yam and it smelled so nice.
If she, Becky would lose,then someone else will have to. Hmm!! Becky said in her heart as she watched Cindy in anger.
An hour later,the cooking was done. Becky was the first to serve her dish. All the time, Becky made passes at Arnold, exposing her private parts to him just to make him lose concentration on the food but it wasn’t working.
Arnold was enjoying the view of her body but yet,he had this crazy hatred for her already. He would tell Gerald not to even make the mistake of picking her. She behaves totally like a dog.
“So,what did you make?” Arnold asked to Becky’s disappointment.
” Oh..it… it’s… fried rice.” Becky responded.
” Wow. Alright. Open it..let me see what you’ve done ” Arnold said.
Breathing out,Becky opened the covered chinaware and a foul smell of pepper drifted into the hair.
Arnold’s brow knotted as he perceived the smell. “You sure this is good?” He asked, taking up a spoon.”
” Y….yesss…” Becky stammered and closed her eyes shut as Arnold had his first taste.
The power and the loud scream that erupted from his mouth made her eyes fly open again.
“Jesus! Jesus!!” Arnold shouted, pouring himself water as he gulped down a whole jug.
“What is it!!” Becky asked, looking desperately at him.
Arnold shot her a glance as he stuck out his tongue and fanned it with his hand.
“You are still asking me what is it!! You are asking me what is it when you gave me pepper rice in the fucking name of fried rice!!!! Take this away!!” Arnold yelled.
Cindy laughed so hard her ribcage hurt. ” I warned you! You must be a killer!, Gosh. Imagine giving my own husband raw pepper to eat. Nonsense. Just wait and watch him enjoy my meal.
Learn,loser.” Cindy laughed as she carried her tray of food and walked out.
Behind her,Becky smiled evilly and bursted into laughter.
“Oh,so sorry dear. She must have had it in mind to pull you with pepper. Can you imagine!” Cindy said as she served the groundnut soup into a plate.
Arnold was still recovering from the pepper.
He looked at the food in front of him. It looked nice and the aroma was great.
Arnold had the confidence that this would be better.
Such a bad cook. I almost collapsed.
Wow, this looks good. You made this?” Arnold asked, licking his lips and taking a handful of the pounded yam. He licked his lips again and dipped one full morsel into the soup.
Bringing it up,he threw it straight into his mouth only for him to spit it back into the plate with the loudest scream than before.
Cindy was shocked at the outburst and reaction. “What is it!
What is it!” She shouted but Arnold wasn’t getting himself any better. He kept screaming and drinking water,jug after jug until he thought he would die.
He thought he just ate a live pepper!
When Cindy tasted her food,she screamed and spitted it out. The pepper in it would cook a whole full bag of rice.
Breathing heavily like a mad dog,Cindy let out one strangled scream.
“Becky!!!!” She cried and ran back into the kitchen.
What evidence do you have against me! What evidence do you have that I was the one who pour a bag of pepper inside your stupid groundnut soup?” Becky queried.
They were both standing in front of aunt Linda.
“It was you! It was you who did it! I tasted the food. I couldn’t have poured so much pepper inside it. I’m not a killer like you!” Cindy shouted.
” Girls,do you want to get disqualified?” Aunt Linda asked.
“No! No Aunt Linda! It was actually a mistake. It must have been a mistake.” Cindy pleaded.
” En en. Mistakes can happen just like mine….”
” Yours wasn’t a mistake,you killer cook!” Cindy shouted again, cutting Becky shut
” Stop it Cindy! Any more words from you,I’m going to get you disqualified!” Aunt Linda chidded.
“I’m sorry but…”
” Shh.” Aunt Linda shut her up before standing up. ” You guys have shown your cooking skills.
Tommorow,it will be Natasha and Maria’s turn to cook.” With that,Aunt Linda left the living room.
Cindy immediately turned to face Becky with tears in her eyes.
“I’m gonna so much deal with you. I will make sure you don’t win this.
keep doing everything you can but you will never win! I promise you.” She rushed out of the living room, heartbroken.
Becky laughed out loud and hissed loudly before walking out.
“How are the girls doing? Anyone you can recommend yet?” Gerald asked, sitting on Arnold’s bed.
Arnold shook his head. ” Wait,I will tell you.” He answered, sitting on a chair beside the window.
He laughed first. “Look,girls can be so dramatic. I’m sorry to tell you this but I’ve slept with one of them.
Wait. Before you condemn me,let me tell you what happened. She’s a desperate babe.
You should have seen the way she walked nakedly into this room.
God. This one will jump into any man’s bed! She’s….”
” I Know who you are talking about. Becky.” Gerald interrupted.
“Oh,you’ve noticed her too. As for her, she’s out of the question.” Arnold said.
Gerald breathed in. ” What’s the next line of action?” He asked.
“Well, you should be asking aunt Linda. She has everything under control. You don’t need to worry. Just stay at your duty post,man.” Arnold laughed.
” Jerk.” Gerald stood up from bed and left the room.
Immediately he opened the door,he see Cindy sneaking up the stairs.
He stared down at her. Cindy was a little but startled to see him. What a gate man doing inside the house at this time of the night? She asked herself.
She came up to the landing and cleared her throat. “What are you doing here so late in the night?”
“I should be asking you the same question. What were you doing here so late in the night?” Gerald threw back.
“How dare you! How dare you talk back at me like that,you common gate man? Oh my goodness,I can’t believe this!” Cindy ranted.
” You had better not raise your voice too high else you will have to explain what you were doing here in front of this room at this time of the night.” Gerald said to her before walking away.
He stared back at her as he descended the stairs, shaking his head.
“I don’t blame you. Fool.” Cindy hissed. She rearranged herself and knocked at the door.
“Who’s there?” Arnold asked from inside. He was changing his clothes for the night.
“It’s me Cindy. I’m here for the night..just to make you happy.” Cindy said to Arnold’s hearing. Just then,his phone rang on top of the bed. He picked it up.
“Yes,it’s me. Send that girl back to her room immediately. I saw her coming inside your room. Send her back right now.” Gerald said and cut the call.
Arnold dropped his phone back on the bed and opened the door. He stood on the way.
“Let me in. I’m here to kill your boredom.” Cindy said seductively.
” Boredom? I never mentioned being bored to you, did I?” Arnold asked.
Cindy wondered why he was blocking the way. “At least let me in first. It’s cold here.” Cindy said trying to push past her but Arnold would not give her a chance.
“I’m sorry you can’t come in. This is not part of the competition at least,not now. It might happen later but not now. You will have to go back to your room before I will disqualify you.
Cindy was surprised. “Are you kidding me right now? Then why did you allowed Becky in the othee night? Why? Yes. I saw you guys…in a very hot sex.” Cindy said.
Arnold felt like slapping her. ” Are you okay? How dare you!” He fired at her.
Cindy quickly recoiled. ” I’m … sorry…”
” Then get lost. I’m not a sex contractor. I’m a man looking for true love. Not sex machine.” With that,he closed the door at her face.
Cindy was both mad and ashamed. Quietly,she walked back downstairs.
Immediately she came inside, Becky’s laughter almost made her heart jump into her stomach.
She flickered the lights on and was surprised to see Becky fully awake on her bed.
“Guess he did not even open the door for you?” Becky mocked, staring up and down at her.
” What ..are you talking about?” Cindy fumed, walking quickly to get bed.
” Arnold of course. I knew when you opened the door and slipped out. You are such a cheap bitch, aren’t you?” Becky asked.
Cindy was beginning to boil with a running over anger. She sat up in bed with a warning look..”For the last time,witch! Don’t you dare talk to me!!” Cindy shouted at her.
Becky laughed again. “You must be so ashamed of yourself.
How on earth did you think Arnold was going to open the door for you and let you come in after what I’ve made him feel?
Use your head,bad cook.” Becky mocked and laughed again before laying back down.
“We shall see!” Cindy raved and lay down, boiling with hatred and anger.
