From the day Rejoice set her eyes on Frank, her attitude towards Leticia changed. There were times that she even felt that Leticia did not deserve Frank. Rejoice had set her sights on destroying the relationship between Leticia and Frank. This motive of hers made her grow bitter towards Leticia and her every action. "Why am I even doing this?, Rejoice asked herself one day when she was alone in the room. "I think I deserve better than Leticia". "My parents are richer, I am prettier and I believe compared to Leticia, I am more experienced in a lot of things than she is". "Why do I want to destroy their relationship?", she asked herself. "I believe a woman's got to do what a woman's got to do to see herself happy". "Leticia, this is not personal, it is the issue of survival of the sexiest". "Unlike naive Leticia, I know what a man wants and I am willing to give it to him". "I know what to do", Rejoice said.  She wanted to get an opportune moment to put her plans to bed. It took her more time planning her "coup d'état" than she actually studied. She was obsessed with having Frank and did not really mind taking Leticia out of the picture to get to her aim. Rejoice had become so meticulous. She had grown into a tactician overnight. She paid attention to every little detail between Leticia and Frank. She knew their love was so strong and they rarely even argued so she could not use that as motive to get Frank. She set her sights on eavesdropping on their phone conversations. "Why am I so into this guy?, she asked herself. "There are so many cute guys everywhere but why do I want Frank so badly?". "I need help, I have to see a counselor to help me". She decided to visit a counselor after one of her lectures but on her way, she met Frank and struck a conversation with him. "Hi sweet cheeks", she greeted. "It's been a while we met, hope you are holding up perfectly". "My roomie is keeping you like a national treasure so I know you are in safe hands", she added. Frank laughed and responded, Hi Rejoice, I am cool hope you are too". "I would have loved to sit and chat but I am running late for a group discussion so I'd see you pretty soon, take care". Frank said this and sped off. Rejoice, after this encounter had fallen more in love with Frank and changed her mind about seeing the counselor. She took a detour and vowed to get Frank come what may. One day, she found out valuable information about Frank. He was a lover of good food and it happened that 'Jollof' rice was his favorite meal. Then it struck Rejoice that indeed, the saying that 'the way to a man's heart is through his stomach'  would be the perfect  cliché that would win her the man of her dreams. She managed to get her hands on Leticia's phone before it self-locked, went into her WhatsApp chats and sent Frank an invitation to come and eat his favorite food and hangout since Rejoice was not around. She deleted the message and put the phone down. Rejoice knew that Leticia had lectures that morning and was not going to be back for a long time. Her only fears were if Frank was going to take the bait, if he already knew Leticia's schedule for the day and if he was going to call to verify this "August", invitation. None of the above happened. Leticia left for lectures and "chef" Rejoice got to work. She started preparing the dish. She was surprised by the aroma of the dish. In about an hour, she heard a knock on their door. She prayed that it was Frank and true to her prayer, "charming" Frank was standing at the door. She ushered him in and offered him a seat. Frank was told that Leticia had to go for an emergency lecture and left her in charge. She struck a conversation with him instantly. "Leticia told me that your favorite food is Jollof". "I like it, yes, but love is overrated", Frank replied. Soon, the food was ready and Frank was served "handsomely". He ate and requested for more. He was served more and was served mango juice to wash the food down. They sat in silence after the table was cleared. Rejoice stood up and started behaving in a kinky way. For a moment, it appeared that she wanted to give Frank a lap dance. "Rejoice, what are you doing?". Frank asked. "Please stop this because I don't like where this is going", Frank added. "Frank, since the first time I saw you, I have been in love with you ever since". "I know you want this", pulling her skirt upwards "because I saw you look at me the first time you visited". "I can show you more than you saw and satisfy your curiosity if you allow me". Frank was confused but at the same time he liked what he was seeing. "If I allow you do what?", Frank asked. "I thought this was supposed to be a man's job", Frank said. "Don't be naïve Frank, you are smart and I know you can figure it out". "I know you understand me but even if you don't, the bulge I see forming in your trousers does",Rejoice added. She started walking towards Frank. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. Rejoice opened the door and it was the hostel's best gossip. She had come to borrow an iron. She left with suspicious look on her face. Frank started feeling uncomfortable and wanted to leave. "Rejoice, I think I have overstayed my welcome" I want to take my leave now", he said. "Rejoice had locked the door, sat on his laps and planted a kiss on his lips. "What if Leticia walks in on us like this?", Frank asked and started moving his lips to meet that of Rejoice's.......What is going to happen next? Relax and wait for the next episode.
