🍎🥀👑 EPISODE 13 👙👇🥀
“Please i don’t want him to know that i’m here” Linda held my left hand and pleaded with frightened eyes, while i looked at her in surprise as i equally searched her face,
“I will explain later but please don’t let him come into your room” she added fearly,
“Don’t worry dear, i won’t” i assured her with a smile…….
I finally opened my door half- way with a fast beating heart, and blocked the entrance with my body as i stared at David, who just smiled sweetly at me like an innocent child,
“Hey dear how you dey?” he asked,
“I’m fine and busy with my assignments” i replied,
“Can i come in? I promise not to disturb you, i’m very bored and lonely in my room” he asked with a smile, while i shook my head,
“Please come some other time, i really want to be alone” i answered with a serious look. He smiled, shrugged and gave me a cold look which really frightened me,
“okay i will come later in the evening” he said before walking away, while i breathed deeply,
“what is wrong with this boy?” i asked myself…….
“Has he gone?” linda inquired curiously as soon as i locked my door, while i smiled and advanced towards her,
“Yes dear he has gone back to where he came from” i replied with a smile, while She breathed deeply,
“Thank God” i heard her mutter…….
“So dear i’m very eager to hear what you came to discuss with me” i said curiously as i sat beside her, but she just looked away as if she wasn’t sure of herself any more.
“I have the feeling David knows i’m here” i heard her mutter with a lost voice. I drew closer and rested my right hand on her left shoulder,
“What is really going on and why are you so scared of him?” i asked,
“I don’t think it’s important anymore i have to get going” she said and stood up suddenly, while i held her left hand strongly, and pleaded with her,
“Please open up to me, i promise to keep our discussion secret” i pleaded desperately, even though i really didn’t know what pushed me to do so……
She stared at me silently for a while, before sitting on my bed again,
“I couldn’t help but notice how attached and obsessed David have become over you, do you have feelings for him?” she asked as she looked into my eyes, while i instantly was thrown into shock, confusion and surprise, because i really didn’t know the motive behind her question, whether she asked it as a girlfriend, sister, solicitor or a jealous stalker, but before i could get my composure back, her phone rang…
Her face coloured as she stared at her ringing phone for a while before standing up again,
“I better start going, we will talk some other time” she muttered as she walked towards my door, while i stared at her in silence, because i really was very stunned, extremely surprised and confused…..
She left my room without another word, while i stood up, walked to my closed door, locked it and returned to my bed, where i lay with my thoughts before falling asleep due to fatigue…….
I jolted from my bed around 7:30pm that evening, prepared my night meal, freshened up, and left for Samuel’s room. I walked into his room with a tray of Garri and soup, while he stared at me happily, when he opened his door…..
“I thought you weren’t coming again” he confessed, which equally made me smile.
“I was carried away by sleep oo” i explained with a yawn,
“And where did it drop you?” he asked as he brought a bowl of water,
“It dropped me on your head” i joked. He laughed and washed his hands……
We ate silently that fateful evening because we were very hungry, and he also never asked about the friend whom i told him i was expecting earlier in the day, which really earned him a great deal of my respect, even though i knew i wouldn’t have been able to hold myself from asking, if i was in his shoes……
We were soon done with the meal, which finished quickly, and he then sat by my side and waited upon me as i peeled oranges for him,
“You really don’t know how much you have changed my life and the kind of influence you now have over me” he muttered moments later, while i blushed.
“Seriously dear, you have redefined my life, and i do owe you a lot for that. I know i’m not romantic, but i’m trying my best to learn, i promise to do everything within my power to make you happy, i love you so much” he poured out to me, while my hands shook slightly…
He reached for the orange i held with my left hand, took it from my grasp, knelt by my side and gave me a nice hug…..
I trembled under the hotness of his tight hug and it was as if a thousand volts of love had hit me. He drew up my face and stared into my eyes,
“Oh baby i wish you could feel how my heart is beating for you” he muttered,
“I wish you could feel how i’m trembling inside because of you” i said to myself……
I really wished for something more closer from him other than the regular hug, but it doesn’t seem coming. This made a part of me happy and another part of me sad. But still doesn’t change my feelings for him.
“I think i’m in love with a saint here” I said to myself.
Our love affair grew stronger from that day, and we could have dated happily ever after if not for David who often showed up to spoil things, he still continued wooing me and nothing i did to stop him seemed to have any effect on him, instead it appeared to make him more desperate than ever, which truly alarmed me, that i had no choice than to seek Mariam’s advice and help who then suggested that we team up with Linda before confronting him.
Against Samuel’s approval i accepted Mariam’s suggestion and tried to reach an agreement with Linda, but my first attempt failed when David mysteriously showed up and spoiled the whole thing by expressing his feelings to me in Linda’s presence, which suddenly made her more jealous and suspicious that i had to flee from her room that fateful evening.
I truly was very hurt and beaten by David’s unexpected cunny move that i utterly decided to give up, but no Mariam wouldn’t accept defeat and urged me to go back and explain things to Linda, which i did with her by my side.
When we were about gaining Linda’s confidence again, David appeared as usual from no where to spoil things again for us, even though he came this time with two other bad boys who blocked and locked us inside linda’s room. Only God knew his plan that fateful day.
A bitter argument instantly ensued between David and Linda which soon resulted to David rendering her a sharp slap. A visibly provoked and angry Mariam instantly jumped up to Linda’s defence and dared David.
In the confrontation and exchange of words that followed, David finally revealed to Mariam that he wasn’t going to touch her merely because her boyfriend is a member of his gang, which instantly stunned and left Mariam speechless.
I had to intervene by calling him a liar, but before he could reply my comment, Linda angrily attacked him with a kitchen knife, though he luckily saw her on time, side stepped and tried to grab the knife, but he miscalculated, and screamed as the blunt blade cut his left finger.
We all gasped…
David stared at his injured finger for a while before descending heavily on linda, kicking, hitting and slapping her randomly with fury.
Linda’s cry soon shook the whole lodge that fateful evening, making us freeze like statues as she received David’s blows all alone. I truly have never heard nor witnessed anyone cry with such pain and anguish before in my life, but instead of rendering any help, i just stood and watched as if i was watching a home video.
Perhaps it was because my strength failed me that moment or because i was too scared to jump into the fight, but then whatever it was that prevented me from intervening that moment equally turned me into a very heartless girl who just stood and watched a fellow girl as she got beaten in a fight which truly started because i happened to be in that very room that moment.
“Supposing Mariam and i left things as they were, all these wouldn’t have happened but i guess it’s now too late to be regretting” i reasoned as i watched him beat up linda.
Mariam was still too stunned to intervene, as she sat speechless on the bed with both hands on her head.
After David’s revelation about her boyfriend that fateful evening, she just coloured up and kept to herself like an AIDS patient.
Finally i heaved a sigh of relief with a deep breathe as David’s two friends rushed up and dragged him out from Linda, who just laid motionless from the terrifying blows she got from him. The poor girl really had given up with her struggles when her strength failed her, yet David really was very furious to care or even notice.
Supposing his two friends didn’t break him away from her that moment, i truly don’t know what could have happened.
David and his friends finally left us alone in ‘pieces’ and i was then left with the huge task of reviving Linda. Poor girl who was trampled upon, humiliated and beaten all because of love.
With shaking hands, i lifted up her head and tried to revive her….
Where’s this gonna end?
How do i end David’s case all at once
We’ll find out soon!
