Arthur loved living on the edge, and his choice of women, just like his hobbies, reflected it. His friends often joked that he liked his women ‘crazy’, to which he responded, “One man’s crazy is another man’s passionate.” He was that guy who always had ‘interesting’ relationship stories or encounters with women.
He called his friend Peter on this particular day but sounded shaken up.
“Hey Arthur, what’s up?” Peter answered excitedly.
“Hey Peter, are you busy?” Arthur asked.
“Not really, I’m with the rest of the boys. What’s going on?” Peter asked him.
“Could you come over to my house right now?”
Peter didn’t have to ask any more questions. He could tell something was wrong, so they quickly rushed to Arthur’s place. They found a small crowd coming from the direction of Arthur’s apartment.
“Arthur,” Peter called out as he knocked at his door.
Arthur opened the door and thanked Peter for coming. He held the door open for two of the other friends who were with Peter. As they entered the living room, they found that Arthur had a female companion present. She had the same look as Arthur.
“Bro, what’s wrong? You guys have this look like you’ve seen ghosts,” said Peter as he looked at both Arthur and the girl in his house.
“Brenda happened man,” responded Arthur.
“Brenda, your ex?” Peter asked, giving Arthur a look.
“She was a sneaky link, not my ex,” Arthur corrected him.
“Yeah, sure. A sneaky link that nurses you back to health? Anyway, what did she do?”
Immediately Peter said that the other two guys in the room made a look alerting him to the girl’s presence. Peter made a look acknowledging that he had forgotten she was in the room in case his remarks negatively impacted Arthur’s pursuit of the girl. Noticing the awkward moment, Arthur chimed in.
“Oh guys, this is Fifi, she’s cool. She knows everything.”
“So what did Brenda do?” One of the other guys asked.
“You remember I told you I was going out yesterday? I went to the club with Fifi. We were having a good time and then someone patted me from behind so I turned and it was Brenda. She said hi to us and she left. We also moved to another club and then came to my place at around six in the morning. Fifi said she needed to check her emails before coming to bed so I left her on the couch. I fell asleep immediately I landed on that bed,” Arthur narrated.
“Okay, so where does Brenda come in in all of this?” Peter asked.
“I’m getting to that. So I woke up at around midday and heard voices. I wondered who Fifi was talking to. At first, I thought’s the cleaning lady but she wasn’t supposed to come today so I got up to check. That’s when I saw Brenda sitting on that couch. She had come with a bottle of gin and had already served Fifi some.”
“The suspense dude!” One of the guys remarked.
Arthur continued to narrate the encounter and nudged Fifi to tell them.
“I fell asleep on the couch while responding to an email so I was startled when the doorbell rang. Initially, I thought I dreaming until it rang again. I peeped and saw a lady holding a bottle of alcohol then I remembered she had said hi at the club so I opened the door,” said Fifi.
“What did you guys talk about when she came in?” Arthur’s friend asked.
“She asked for Arthur and I told her that he was still asleep, so she asked me if I wanted a drink as we wait for him to wake up. Arthur joined us shortly after,” Fifi responded.
Arthur took over the narration, “I was in shock when I saw her but they seemed to be having a chilled time so I joined them. Brenda was clearly more intoxicated than the rest of us and when I joined she started getting emotional. She started telling me how I had messed her up and she had to see a shrink after I ended our interactions. At first it sounded like someone just ranting until she mentioned that it would soon be over. I asked her what she meant and that was when I saw the lighter in her hands.”
Peter and the two friends finally understood why Arthur and Fifi looked traumatized. Brenda had come intending to burn down Arthur’s house. She had disconnected the gas cylinder to cause a gas leak. Luckily there was little gas left in the cylinder. They battled for the lighter in her hands with Arthur, and she screamed, attracting the crowd Peter and the boys had found leaving his apartment.
After the struggle, Arthur took the lighter away, opened all the windows and fixed the cylinder. He threatened to call the police on Brenda, which was when she left. They also had to lie a bit to the crowd about Brenda’s true intentions to prevent it from becoming a bigger issue.
“I told you that girl would be a problem,” Peter told Arthur.
“I didn’t think she would go to such lengths,” Arthur defended himself.
“You did her dirty though. That girl was playing wife with you all along,” said Peter.
“I told her it was purely physical for me,” said Arthur.
“So now, what if she comes back?” One of the other friends asked.
“I’ll scare her by taking legal action and ask the watchman not to let her in.”
They discussed the incident a bit more before deciding to change the venue to help Arthur overcome the trauma. Fifi decided to go home.
