Episode 39

She couldn’t hold herself back anymore but to cry out. “Am so sorry for everything.”she said crying. Justin was staring at her from his car as she cried. He looked away and tears also dropped from his eyes. He started the engine and drove out of the compound.
At royal hour school, Charlie got to school early searching everywhere for Justin. She never get a good sleep overnight, she kept thinking about him. She promised to apologize to him properly hoping he would forgive her and forget about what happened.
When she searched everywhere and was not able to find him, she saw down on a bench under a tree. “Why is he not here yet?”she asked looking around. students could be seen in the, compound walking about. Someone came sitting beside her and she quickly looked at the person hoping it’s Justin, But who she could sew was Daniel. “Hey Daniel”she called feeling disappointed. “hi miss”Daniel replied with a smile. Sarah’s expression went bad again. “Did you guys had a fight?”he asked looking at her. By not replying him, he took it as a yes. “I noticed he was not himself yesterday. Even though I asked him why he was like that, he never said anything to me. He kept drinking and drinking the whole night before I left his place. I guess that was why he is not yet in school by now”Daniel said looking at her. Sarah was surprised by what he said. “He really drank too much yesterday? Oh no”Sarah said feeling bad. “I don’t think he would be in school today. Since Mrs Henry went back to Malaysia yesterday morning, he has no one to force him here.”Daniel said. “So what would he be doing at home all alone?”Sarah asked looking at him. “He would probably be drinking again or still sleeping I guess”Daniel said looking at her. “What have you do to him to make him that way? It has been long I saw him like that. Did you breakup with him?.”Daniel asked.
“It was my fault. I think I need to see him now”Sarah said standing up. Daniel also stood up looking at her”where are you going to?”he asked. “To justin”she replied and walked away before Daniel could say anything again.
“Why did she have to go when classes were about starting?”Daniel said Checking his wrist watch. He saw Hanna going to class and he quickly walked up to her smiling.
When Sarah got to Mr Henry’s house, she greeted the maids on her way in. When she got to the living room, One of the maid stopped her when she was about going into the passage leading to his room”he doesn’t want to see anybody for now. Please ma’am it’s better you come back later or call him before going in.”she said in a polite manner. “Don’t worry about that. Am not anybody. Please let me see him”Sarah begged her. “If I allow you in, I might lose my job. Please it’s better you call him or come back later”she said in a pleading voice. “OK”Sarah said and reached for her phone. She called his phone but he wasn’t picking up. She called it again, it was ringing but he refused to pick it. Sarah now thought he might have done something bad to himself. “Please let me in. You can’t be fired. I guarantee your safety OK?”Sarah said and walked towards his room not waiting for her to say anything again. When she got to his door, she took a deep breath before opening it. She peeped in still standing by the door but she saw nobody in his room. He was not there. “Where could he be?”she asked herself walking into his room. She has no idea of what happened in his room. It looks messy and rough. Some stuffs were displaced from where they are before. Everywhere was so messed up. “What in the world happened here? Did he do all this?”she said looking around his room. She dropped her bag and started arranging the stuffs to where they are before. After putting them back in place, she wanted to lay the bed properly, but something shining in a small black box caught her eyes. She picked up the box and brought out the necklace in it. She hold it in her hand staring at it. “It looks pretty. But why is he having a girl’s stuff?”she said still staring at it.
Justin came in from outside and saw her standing there with her back on him. She didn’t hear the sound of the door when he came in, so she didn’t notice he was there already. Justin stared at her for a while before he finally spoke”what do you think you’re doing in my room?”he asked.
When Sarah heard his voice, the box and the necklace fell from her in shock and she quickly turned to him. “ here.. Because..”she stammered not knowing what to say. Justin looked at the necklace that dropped from her and looked back at her face”You’re here because of what? How can you come into a guy’s room carelessly and start toughing his stuffs without his knowledge?”he asked moving closer to her. “Am sorry. I think I went too far coming all the way here.”Sarah said looking at him. “You don’t need to be sorry to me this time again. Am tired of that word already.”Justin said as he moved closer to her. When he got to her, Sarah could still perceive the odour of the wine he took. He picked up the necklace on the floor beside her and dropped it back on the bed. “Get out now, If you have no reason for coming here”he said not looking at her. “I want to know the reasons you were not in school. Why? Have you really been drinking since yesterday?”Sarah asked looking at him. He took off his shirt not minding her questions or her words. Now only a white singlet could be seen on him and a small short he was putting on. Sarah’s eyes went wide as he saw him undressing in her present. She don’t know what else to say anymore. She kept staring at him wondering what he was trying to do. But he went ahead and took of the singlet also. By now, his sexy Abs were smiling at Sarah. She swallowed hard still staring at him. “Wh…what are you doing right now? Why are you undressing?”she asked looking at him. Justin looked at her with an unknown expression”what do you think am doing? Please leave now. I need to shower”he said looking at her. “OK. Please just spare a minute. Just hear what I have to say for a minute”Charlie said. Her eyes can’t just stop staring back at his body as she try to talk. Justin kept staring at her expecting her to say whatever she have to say.”Em..ehm…am sorry for…ev..everything”she said staring at him. After that statement, her lips were tightly shut not knowing what to say again. The more she tried to talk, the more her eyes kept staring at those Abs. She was carried away by his amazing six packs. Of course Justin was aware of that.
“What do I have to say next? How does he expect me talk looking at him like this? No no no! Sarah wake up. Your time is running out!”she thought to herself looking at him. By hearing the word sorry again, Justin moved closer to her. Sarah quickly stared off not looking at him again”I..I…”
Justin got close to her and looked straight into her eyes”I said no more of that word again. The more you say sorry, the more it got me really upset. Charlie… I mean Sarah please just stop this already. Am tired of it please. Just leave my room since you don’t have any other thing to say. Please I need to be alone for now ok”he said looking at her. “Am sor…”she wanted to repeat it again but quickly stopped looking at him. “Sarah please leave. Do you want me to take you out myself?”Justin asked in a little harsh voice.
“OK I will leave for now. Sorry for breaking into your room”she said and left his room closing the door behind her.
After she left, Justin leaned his back to the wall staring at the door. “Sorry,sorry,sorry. All the time. When will she stop saying that word to me? I can’t just understand her anymore”Justin said to himself staring at the door.
He moved to his bed and was about taking off his short to go into the bathroom. Just as he was about taking it off, Sarah came in again. And he quickly stopped staring at her.
