Flash Story: At Rebecca’s Wedding

by Daniel Nkado

The two girlfriends sat at the very back of the canopy, spooning yellow rice into their mouths.

At the front, the newly-wedded couple was jiggling away in great bliss. Flavour’s Ada-Ada electrified the air.

‘Look at her,’ one of the girlfriends said. ‘I can’t believe she is getting married today.’

‘My sister, who could have known that there are men in this world who specifically go for ugly girls?’ her mate responded. She picked the bottle of Coke standing beside her feet on the ground and drank from it.

‘But seriously, Rebecca is not just ugly, she is hideous. A bush girl that doesn’t even know how to make up her face. Look at her, even on her wedding day!’

Her friend giggled. ‘Did you see that eyebrow she drew the other day; the line literally connected her eye to her ear.’

The other girl threw out a laugh. ‘But seriously, this wedding thing shock me o! How did they even meet? And I heard the man is a medical doctor o, imagine!’ She picked the large lump of meat on her rice, held it between her teeth and tried to tear it.

‘Some men sha,’ her friend murmured.

Haba, Nkechi, this meat too strong o,’ the girl struggling with the meat said.

‘Really?’ the other girl said. ‘Mine was okay o.’ She picked her own Fanta bottle to drink.

The old woman sitting in their front stood and walked to them. She collected their plates of food and bottles of drink.

Ah-ah, Mama, what is that na?’ the girl chewing the meat asked.

The old woman plucked the lump of meat from her mouth. ‘Go home now. You two have been bounced!’
