My Neighbour’s Girlfriend: By XhedbuksKing
Beneath the rim of my face cap, through the rims of my vintage granpa glasses and above the crook of my elbow which bore my weight, I peered distractedly at the torrents of rain falling from the corrugated roofing sheets three storey above to the ground a flow below, as I rested languidly on the railings of the balcony of my little room which was one of the many little rooms in the big lodge down the road , not very far from school.
The wind had thinned out to sporadic gusts and it made the electric lines overhead whistle violently, making it sound like an evil spirit was on the prowl. It also made little showers of wetness spray across my face, caressing my nostrils with the astringent scent of rain. With an unseeing intent I stared at the fast falling drops of rain as they followed each other in their descent to earth.
Seeing beyond them to a night not too far from the reach of memory that the electric lines sang in such deadly whistles as they did then. I still saw with my mind, the frenzied dance of the trees as the wind assailed them in the
darkness of the night, making me remember..
I remembered the cold smell of the rain wind as it wafted unbridled into my room through the open window. I remember hurrying from my bed to the window and sliding it shut as the wet gusts of wind threatened to make the solitary candle that stood atop a my reading table by the window, give up the ghost.
The sudden brightness that cut through the dark of the night, setting everywhere momentarily aglow and casting eerie shadow s of the ceiling fan and the lone shirt that hung from the nail on the wall, still shone bright in my memory.
