TITLE: Twine EPISODE: 16
I threw my phone on the sofa, while flickering through the channels on my Plasma TV. There was nothing good on Tv or nothing i wanted to see. I don’t know why Dantata didn’t pick my calls. So much for us being friends! When was the last time that big headed boy checked up on me? I would have gone to see him but i don’t want to run into his sister, Suresh, God forbid! I don’t know how her family copes with her. And that gum she chews! Urgh! the ta_ta sound she makes while chewing it is enough to give one headache.
I needed to talk to someone but what do i do now that my so called friend won’t pick my calls and my relationship with Vicky is at its infancy so i don’t want to dump my problems on her, besides she has enough of her own already. Richie has also been calling my line non_stop and my nerves was wearing thin.I didnt foresee my weekend going like this, i thought i would curl up on my sofa with a book and lose myself in the romance world since i was destined to be a failure in that department. I heard my door creak open, i turned my head towards the door and jumped up in fright. The Diana Palmer novel flew out of my hand, it landed with a loud thud on the floor. How could i have forgotten to lock the door!
I opened my mouth to scream when he walked in but no words came out.
He got down on both knees.
” I know i am an a$$ and i acted like one. please forgive me. I don’t know what came over me, i overreacted when i met that dude here and i mistreated you Tomi……”
” Please leave my house!” I tried to sound brave. I was so shaken and scared, i felt sweat trickle down my spine even though the AC was on.
” Tomi you caused it all but i am not here to trade blames…. i want you back in my life.” he pleaded.
” You gave me no chance to explain myself! i never slept with that guy and i don’t even know him! He only gave me a ride when i left your parents’ s house! on the way i felt sick because i didn’t like whatever it was your mother served me!” i felt tears creap into my eyes, i fluttered my lashes trying to will it back.
His eyes widened. ” You…..you are actually telling the truth? i saw your clothes all over the place! your shoes were in the center of this room and there was a cum stain on your bed sheet! Hell! what was i supposed to think?!”” Rich prior to that day, you have never set foot into my apartment. I hung those clothes on the sofa and i forgot to take them inside and my shoes were here because i left them here too!”
” Tomi I’ m so sorry ”
” You attempted to rape me! you bruised my cheek! saying sorry doesn’t cover it!” i shuddered as i remebered his palm landing on my face.
” I was drunk. I don’t even know how i managed to drive down here and i didn’t remember much of what happened the next day. Did…..did i hurt you much?”
He sounded genuine.
” Let’s come down to the part where i caught you burying your balls in ……..in that hoe”
” Believe me. it was just that one time! and she seduced me. I can show you our chats. I met her during a family function and somehow she got my number and she hunted me day and night!” he scratched his head. ” Tomi if i have to spend the rest of my life atonning for my sins to you believe me i will…..please give me another chance”.
” Are you still seeing her?”
” No! I swear to you! Please give me another chance. ”
My head screamed no but my heart screamed yes. I can’t define my feelings for him anymore, i used to be so sure it was love but now i am just confused.
” You didn’t even try to reach me when i left your mother’ s place…… you watched your family ridicule me!”
” Tomi i felt you could hold your own. I’ m truly sorry. I had a huge fight with them when you left and i didn’t call you because i knew you would be angry and i wanted you to stew it out before i call. That was why i came here very early the next morning to check up on you. ” He dipped his hand into his pocket and held out a velvet black box.” This wasn’t how i planned on proposing. Please give us another chance, i want you in my life Tomi. I love you, Please forgive me ” he opened the box. The diamond on the ring glittered. ” Will you marry me?”
This was what i always dreamt of. I could see my mom jumping up with glee in my mind ‘ s eye, my dad would fume a bit and complain about him being from the east but he will quickly get over it and regale him with heroic tales of his late father and the good old days. I took a step closer, staring at the glittering diamond ring. I knew it must have cost him a fortune. I also knew it would look so good on my finger, my co_workers would ooh and ahh over it.
” Say yes” he whispered.
