Put yourself in my shoes, dear readers... what will you do in such an instance? Have you ever felt that rush of adrenaline burning through your veins but you don't know how to express yourself, you don't even know how to pour it out?
As Jeremy made his way to touch me, I was still wondering how he did it, how he fooled me. Can he really see? I waved my hand at his face.
"Jeremy, you can see."
OK, now I really understood what was going on. He tried to convince me, but my brain replayed all the hurt I felt, the tears I shed, the wet pillows… headaches, sleepless nights, lost appetite and what hurt the most, I pushed David away.
I landed a slap on his face, he staggered backwards. I approached him and slapped him again as tears dropped from my eyes. I hurt him and he yelp in pain; his wounds had not fully healed.
I rushed towards him, "I’m sorry. Are you okay?"
"I’m fine, I’m fine."
OK. He was fine so I slapped him again.
There was no other way I could express myself.
"You wanted to trap me in penury for the rest of life. Jeremy, you are heartless, you are..."
I attempted to slap him again but he held my hand.
"I’m sorry Bukky, I did this because I love you."
"No, you love yourself. Your needs always come first; it has always been like that for you. You never care about what I want, it’s just all about you… you self-centered bastard!”
He attempted to hold me again but David rushed in. I guess he heard the latest gist as well.
"Jeremy, let her go!"
This time around, he couldn't protest.
"Jeremy, how could you?"
David asked and drew me behind him. Jeremy couldn't spit a word. I gently drew David outside, there’s no need for him to go further.
"David, I am deeply sorry. I didn't..."
He didn't let me finish my statement, he released my hands;
"No Bukky! Sorry won't cut it. I was ready to fight for you, for our love, but you cower away at every little trail. You don't stand for us, you don’t stand for me. I can't be with a woman who doesn't know what she wants."
Lord of Heaven, two bullets in one day. I attempted to cry as I watched him walk away but Vodka touched me from behind.
"A trophy awaits! Why not give yourself a break from all these love escapades?"
She was right. Thanks to her, I won't be walking into an eternal prison. I wiped my tears, drove home and freshened up. Let's get this battle done!
"Alright people, the battle of our lives has arrived. I want you to stand proud; we got this handled, cos we are not just models, we are THE HOUSE OF EARL!"
