With the help of my security man, I took Ray to the hospital. It was bloody. He sustained internal injuries and he was unconscious. He was hospitalized for three days before he was stabilized. After five days, he finally regained his consciousness.
I assisted him to sit up and he kept on looking at me and from his look, I knew he was mad at me.
“I am sorry, very sorry,” I managed to say.
“I hope that’s not one of the guys you claimed to love?” he asked.
“That’s Alfred,” I replied sadly and started sobbing. “I’m so sorry this had to happen to you. I am sorry, Ray.”
He pulled me close and hugged me so tight. “It’s alright,” he whispered.
“I will speak with him today. I just love him,” I managed to reply.
A nurse entered to administer drugs to him and I had to leave him so he could rest.
“How dare she?” I barked to nothing in particular. “How dare you do this to me Evans? You left me and now you are sleeping around with guys.”
I must make her pay. She will pay, she must pay and suffer for it! Foolish lady, I hissed.
“Hello bitch, I know you are calling to inform me that he is dead.”
“I forbid evil. For your information, Ray is hale and healthy,” she replied.
I feel bad, she doesn’t care anymore.
“Come and meet me at the Bells,” she said sharply.
“For what?” I asked.
“We need to clarify things, Fred,” she said.
“Okay, which hotel room?” I asked her.
I was so happy she opted for the Bells. I will rape her. I smiled as I thought devilishly.
“Hotel room you say, you must be joking. We are meeting at the restaurant,” she replied bluntly.
I felt disappointed.
“Common Evans, let’s meet in the hotel room for the last time,” I pleaded.
“I can’t risk it Fred, I know you, you will probably rape or kill me. You see just come, I’m tired of talking okay? Meet me by 5pm,” she said and disconnected the call.
Oh my God. Evans hang up on me, Evans that once trembled at my presence. She is now daring.
Did I treat her badly? I soliloquized.
Was I hard on her?
Am I wicked?
Am I a bad lover?
Am I heartless?
Hell no! I am not!
I will rather kill her than lose her.
If I don’t have her, no man will!
He was still that handsome guy with his hair in nice shape. His shirt was opened slightly revealing the hair on his chest.
He sipped his cup of champagne. “In a nutshell, you are breaking up with me?” he asked.
“We aren’t dating, I broke up with you a long time ago,” I replied.
I was about raising my hands to slap him, when I heard a familiar voice whispering my name.
Different kinds of questions kept on flooding through my head.
I must defend myself, I must say something, I thought.
I was reluctant to talk because I feared Alfred might hurt David.
The look on Alfred’s face showed he wanted an explanation.
The look on David’s face showed he demanded explanation too.
