The Virgin Ghostess
By:Ogunsola Ayobami Samuel (The Pen)
George was sent to look for Kate to get the keys from her.
Julia succeeded in breaking free from Mrs Janes’s house and Mrs Jane dashed after her. As she was running so she won’t be captured again, she saw Kate sitting down on a bench waiting for the bus to come. She quickly possessed her before Mrs Jane could get to her. Immediately after she possessed her George came on a bike and pull her up to sit on the bike and they rode back to the restaurant.
At the restaurant, julius stretched his hand out to Kate to hand over the key to him but Kate shook his hand instead and said good to see you too. Everybody was surprised at the overnight change in her personality unknowingly to them that Julia the ghostess as taken over Katie’s body .
When Julius attempts to get the key from her by force she threw him to the ground.when everyone saw this they thought Kate was drunk, as the argument continues she dip her hand into the bag she was crying then she found they
key there. To save herself from this embarrassment she tried to come out of the body she possessed but she couldn’t because of their matching frequency. When she saw what had happened, she fainted.
Five minutes later after she had fainted she woke up seeing herself surrounded with men, she took her time to survey the size of their manhood one after the other.
She later went to julius to apologise for how she to threw him to the ground earlier and asked for another chance to work at the restaurant and she was pardoned by julius
Julius was about to go to the market to get some items and gave Mike some instructions but Mike in return gave the instructions to Kate who declined saying she thought julius wanted him to carry out the instructions given not her.
Later that day at the restaurant, Mike and the other guys were discussing about Kate’s saying she doesn’t seem like her real self that she might have gone insane because of the change in her personality.
At the bathroom, when the guys were having their bath she barged in without knocking at the door seeing all the guys nudes. They all yelled at her to close the door and she did but open it again to apologise for not knocking earlier and looking at them one more time. She was happy for what she had seen thinking she might be able to resolve her virginity grudge with one of the guys if she was able to seduce them.
When they came out of the bathroom, they saw her in the locker room then Mike realised that she was looking at him so he traced her eyes to his manhood and asked what she was gazing at. Kate stood up and patted him on the the shoulder telling him to cheer up that’s its not like people care about such thing but Mike replied that it’s because she saw a glance.
Later at night, Julia couldn’t locate where Kate was living, just as she was pacing around she received a call from kate’s landlord asking her if she won’t come home. With the call she received she knew where to go. On getting to kate’s resident, she was told to pack her things out of the house. While packing she saw a little ghost hiding behind the cupboard in the room and chased it away. Saying this girl I guess attracts all kind of ghost.
The next day Julius was to go on a TV cooking contest with a chef with Mike his assistant. The taping begins, and by way of introduction, julius says he’s here to show that his hands are for cooking, not violence, and then the viewer challenge is introduced: Cook a hangover soup that a mother would make for a son who’s been drinking all night after just getting his enlistment papers.
The challenge seems to set julius off-kilter from the start, likely because he has no idea what a mother would cook for a son. He starts making dried pollack soup, but with minutes left, Julia notices that the rice has burnt.
He seems frozen with indecision, while his rival chef Martin is already plating his dish at a leisurely pace. Julia pushes him aside and springs into action, scraping out the rice and pouring the soup into the stone rice pot. He asks what she’s doing, and she says quietly that she’s making dried pollack crispy rice soup.
The final dishes are tasted by the judges, and everyone notes julius ’s simple rice dish in surprise. He looks surprised himself when he tastes it, and Bella congratulates him on the win after the show. She thought he’d be at a disadvantage for the challenge because he hates rice so much (his staff has complained that he doesn’t let them eat rice, let alone ever cook it).
Mike finally shows up and gets chewed out for missing the show, and to add insult to injury, Bella says that Julia has to keep being his assistant because they can’t swap now. Mike whines that Julia can’t do the heavy lifting, just as she passes by carrying all the equipment without breaking a sweat.
As julius drops them off, he tells Julia to return to the kitchen tomorrow (he mutters it so begrudgingly that she has to make him repeat it), and she realizes that this is his way of saying thank you for her help on the show today.
She heads home that night feeling good about herself, and wonders how she came up with that idea in the moment—is that soup dish something she used to like?
She sees a young man lying in the street drunk and sporting a bruise on his eye, and something makes her stop and try to help him. She digs out his phone and calls “Dad,” It rings, but he doesn’t answer. Pick up the phone, Dad!
Julia doesn’t know why she’s being so nice, but she can’t just leave the guy there and drags him all the way to the police station. Policeman john recognizes him right away and calls his to come pick him up, and asks Julia to wait because his dad would want to thank her.
She swoons again at officer John sweet disposition, and seems happy to wait around as long as she gets to stare at her cop crush. Dad comes running in to claim his son, and one look at Dad sends Julia’s head spinning.
A memory comes flooding back: Dad trying to wake Little Bro in their family restaurant, and Julia comes out of the kitchen to join them, they really are her family! She beats Bro with the ladle and Dad laughs.
And then another memory rushes in: Dad’s restaurant is bustling with taxi drivers, and Julia runs around the kitchen trying to keep up with the orders, as she and Dad joke happily with their regular customers.
The truth dawns on Julia in the present, and her eyes fill with tears as she whispers the faintest, “Father…” as she remembers all the ways he used to call her name: “ju-li-a! Our Julie! let’s eat! Julia ”
