Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 1
Francis slammed his eyes shut as the guy hurriedly picked up the pieces of his clothing that were scattered on the floor to cover his naked butt.
“Sorry man” the guy said as he hurriedly left the room.
Debby hunched over at the edge of the bed, holding the blanket against her nakedness. Unable to meet his gaze, his chest burned and his throat constricted with pain… He had exhausted himself emotionally. He however inhaled a deep breath and breath out slowly.
She made no response as she curled into a ball, covering her face with her hands.
“Deborah” he called again what have you done again? How could you do this again? Is it a curse or something? Wasn’t that your ex that maltreated you?” He prayed he wouldn’t lose his mind.
Her lips quivered and a cry escaped her “I’m sorry,” she whimpered
Cold anger and raw hatred began thrumming through his veins and he took hold of the plastic chair close to the T.V and swung it against the wall. The chair scattered into pieces making a clattering noise on the floor.
“You are sorry..?” He gritted her teeth as he advanced towards the bed while she recoiled further, “you were sorry for the last one and the one before and the one after that and now you are sorry again …!” he basked in silence and sat at the tip of the bed, frustration crinkled his eyes.
“I’m so sorry Francis please…..” she sobbed, edging closer to him but the look he gave her made her move back.
“What exactly is your problem Deborah”? Why do you like hurting me this much? Is it a crime to love! This is the third year of our relationship for God’s sake! And you had to cheat on me on the day of our anniversary” he lamented and dipping his hand in his pocket brought out a box…. Look… I said look up!” He shouted at her.
She gasped as she saw the ring… her lips quivering….. “Francis….. Please forgive me this last time, I promise it won’t happen again” she pleaded amidst sobs.
He laughed bitterly “because I’m a fool right?”
She stood up frantically, the blanket dropping to reveal her naked body as she clung unto him.
“Francis…You love me…You still do don’t you?’
He smirked, cocking his head to the left and rolling his eyes to the right towards her. He said to her quietly stressing each word “if you don’t get your whore body away from me right now Debby, I swear by the time am through with you no one will recognize you, not even those idiot you sleep around with will want to have anything to do with you “.
She gasped both at the words coming from him and the formidable look he gave her. She immediately recoiled from him, making no attempt to cover her body; she hurdled in a corner, her face in her hands sobbing.
He returns the box back into his pocket and taking a few step s towards the door he stopped. Taking another look at her-
“I hate you Deborah…….. For using the love I have for you against me.” He opened the door and left, slamming the door behind him.
Debby immediately wiped her face with her hands while climbing down from the bed; she slowly walked to the other part of the room and stopped in front of a wooden box hanging on the wall. On it was boldly written “FIRST AID” she opened it and dipping her right hand inside, she brought a small container which she opened hurriedly and brought to her lip. She tilted her chin up as the content from the container found their way into her mouth. Shutting her eyes as the taste of the pills hit her; she swallowed as she replaced the cover of the container, taking it with her while forgetting to close the FIRST AID BOX.
Taking few strides to her standing mirror, she stopped as she examined herself in the mirror, her face expressionless as she remembered that her fiancé had just caught her in bed with her ex.
She hissed and walked to the bathroom.
She sighed as the cold water from the shower ran down her warm naked body, and so many thoughts began to find their way in her mind.
How could she have forgotten it was their anniversary… she should have known she would want to do something stupid like coming to her room unexpectedly, even though they are in a relationship he shouldn’t have to come unannounced, and so what even if he is the one paying the house rent, she really should have asked PIPI to take her to an HOTEL.
Mother would be so mad for sure………..
She turned off the shower and stretching her hands to remove the towel from where it was hanging, she walked out of the bathroom……
Mother has always liked Francis, she was even the main reason while she was still with him else she would have left his poor ass long ago, maybe it was because he was a medical doctor. She grimaced. A boring doctor who seldom had time for her-or maybe it was because he was a little bit fine…still not as handsome as Pipi if placed side by side.
She plugged the hair dryer and pressed the button, bringing the dryer closer to her wet hair as the cold wave blew into it. It would get warmer, she thought.
If she could only have her way this time, she thought, but she knew her mother wouldn’t agree. She was always saying how good Francis was. Someone would have thought she actually brought them together.
She cocked her head to the other side which was still a little wet. Doing so, she caught her reflection in the mirror. With her voluminous hair and pointy nose, curled eyelashes and perfect jaw line. A killer shape and a beautiful skin. Who else would have been chosen to be the Campus queen aside her. No one. These features and many more had lured so many men into her bed. All she needed to do was snap her fingers and men would follow sheepishly. She was a celebrity, and idol and she would enjoy it to the fullest. Her mother was just the problem. She knew she had no choice than to see her that day. She knew what her mother would say. But she would still go see her…after all. She wasn’t ready to lose the only parent she had left.
