Short Story: The Outing

“Money fall on you, banana fall on you…”, her iPhone 6 came alive.

Sandra picked up her phone and peered her eyes to the screen for the name of the caller. It was Jude. ‘What could this one want this time’, she wondered. She hesitated but when the call came the second time, she decided to pick it up.

“Hello baby how are you?” his husky voice came through the ear jack.

“I’m fine.” She answered softly, her voice sounding like that of an angel.

“Where are you?”

“I’m just at my hostel oh. Just bored.”

“Why will my baby be bored? You know what? Just dress up, I’m coming to pick you up, let’s go out”.

“Really?” Her eyes lit up. She was glad she hadn’t resolved to ignore his call.

“Yes. I’m about to get into my car. ” “Okay. Let me get ready.”


As he revs his car engine and pushes the gear to drive (D) mode, Jude couldn’t but wonder why most ladies are so easily swayed with that phrase “let’s go out”. There wasn’t that much cash on him but he just couldn’t resist making Sandra excited. He had only 15k in his account. Hopefully by next week, that web design deal he’s bidding for would soon pull through, and once he is done, he should have about 100k in his account. So he need not worry about spending about 8-10k on Sandra, at least he can manage the remaining 5k.


It took him barely half an hour to get to the campus and pulled over near the campus females’ hostel. He dialed Sandra’s phone and in a beep, she answered the call all excited as if the call came from her favorite celebrity.

“Hi bae, I’m at the front of your hostel. Start coming out.” Jude spoke.

“Okay boo. We are coming out now.” and she hung up.

“We??” but she had already hung up.  

And true enough. It was a “we”. You see Sandra was coming out with not one, not even two, but three of her friends, Mary, Gift, and Oluchi. As she sat at the front seat of Jude’s car, her friends sat in the back seat.  

“Boo my friends will accompany us. I couldn’t bear to leave them in the same boring state we were in before you called. So I invited them to join us. I know you don’t mind”.  

‘Ehn! Don’t mind? So she can now read my mind? Daughter of the mind reader! Her royal knowingness! “I know you don’t mind.” Is it her mind? I mind oh.’ Jude thought to himself.  

Hi Jude” they chorused from behind. “Hello. Nice to see you again.” Jude clenched his teeth. But in his mind, he was like “these 3 hungry girls again?! Sandra wants to kill me! Who send me message?”

This is because the first time he’d taken all four ladies out, he nearly went broke! They’d ended up ordering for breakfast, lunch and dinner which they couldn’t finish that they had to ask for the rest to be wrapped up for them to take home as if they don’t have food in their house.
