TILL DEATH DO US [email protected]
Hellen was feeling what she had never felt before in her lifetime. She felt like a swarm of bees where crawling inside her skin wherever Lawrence ran his hand on her. The t©uçh of hisl-ips on her s£nt some rhythmic spasms from the sp©t of k!ss!ngto her entire b©dy.
Hellen didn’t even know that she was ma-king noise with her [email protected] ing. Thanks to the Bluetooth speaker which was pla-ying in the room!
“Lawrence, I nee-d more than this now” she whispered into his ears.
“Really?” He whispered back.
“Yeah. I want you to destroy my mas-s media complex like a nuclear bomb would” she whispered back.
“I have bad news though”
“I am not going to do it with you”
“Lawrence this isn’t time to joke. Be serious”
“I am serious. Just wake up”
Lawrence then stood up going to the Bluetooth speaker as he pla-yed the next song.
Hellen went direct to Lawrence.
“Lawrence, am I not good enough for you?” She asked.
“You are so beautiful and very good for me.”
“But why do you want to leave me in this condition?”
“It’s revenge. I wanted you to make you feel what I feel when you st©pped me to do it in your room” he said.
“Yeah, do you know how it feels now?” He asked.
“What?! This is unbelievable!” Shouted Hellen.
Lawrence broke into a loud laughter seeing how mad she was.
As he was still having his eyes closed while laughing, Hellen threw a nas-ty [email protected] to his face which made him stagger on his feet trying to catch balance.
“You are so stupid. I was here re-ady to know how it feels and you come with your revenge nons-en-se!” She shouted.
“I am sorry Hellen”
“I hate you. Don’t you ever call me again” she said going to the door then ban-ging it behind her.
Hellen was so angry with Lawrence. What made her very angry was the fact that she had comprised her moral standards for him only to be told that he wanted revenge.
Just then Lawrence’s course mate [email protected]£ to his room. He knocked then entered.
“What did you do to make her so furious?” The friend asked.
“No wonder. So as grow up as you are, you were in a room with a lady who happens to be your girlfriend and you did nothing! You are really a disappointment. You were supposed to do something” the friend said.
“Listen to me, i respect her and I want to enjoy with her when we get married.” Lawrence said.
“So are you saying that she will wait for you to marry her before she does it?”
“Of course. Why not?”
“Listen to me my friend. These girls you see are like mangoes. While you are waiting for them to ripe, others are eating them with salt. Open your eyes and give her what she wants.”
“I don’t want to do it against her will. You won’t un-derstand what happened between us a week ago,”
“Oh! Okay, then am not interested. By the way I [email protected]£ to ask for your modem. Mine is misbehaving and I really nee-d to finish what I am doing”
Hellen went and got to her room very angry with what happened. She got threw her phone on be-d and went to the bathroom to shower. She then [email protected]£ and got into her be-ddings. Her friend Cathy noticed the change in her mood.
“Hellen, is everything okay?”
“Yeah everything is fine”
“I know you. Something bad has happened.”
“Cathy let’s not talk about this today. Goodnight” she said covering her head with a be-dsheet.
Cathy didn’t want to f0rç£ things but just went on doing what she was busy with.
“How dare you Lawrence!” Hellen thought to herself as she slowly fell asleep.
In the morning of the next day, Cathy made an effort to find out what went haywire with her friend.
“Cathy it’s not something you nee-d to know” Hellen said.
“Then it shouldn’t make your mood so moody that I also get affected.”
“Hellen, a problem shared is a problem half solved.”
“Cathy, I agree I don’t have much experience in [email protected]!ngcircles but I have to keep my relationsh!pissues pri-vate unless there is nee-d to open up. I will tell you if I nee-d your help just like I always do. I am fine” Hellen said.
“Yeah you have a point here. I was just worried.”
“Don’t be worried am a big girl”
“Okay. See you then”
When Cathy went to open the door so that she could leave, she found someone.
“Hellen there is someone here for you” Cathy shouted as she left.
Hellen went outside and found that it was Lawrence.
“What do you want?” She asked.
“You look so beautiful when you get mad. I just [email protected]£ to say hi” he said.
“You fool come inside” said Hellen.
He went inside where she was. He sat on her be-d while she sat on the Cathy’s be-d opposite hers.
“Tell me exactly why you are here” asked Hellen.
“I [email protected]£ here to apologise for yesterday. I am really sorry.” He said.
“Before I forgive you, I nee-d to hear the main reason why you did what you did”
“What I know is that you have kept yourself for so long and you want to be pure for your husband. After my pressure you compromised your stance. At that point you proved to me that you really loved me. You can do anything for me”
“Okay, but was there no any other way to find out if I love you?”
“They are there but that was the simplest. What I am proud off is that I didn’t make you do what you never wanted until the set time”
“You are unbelievable!”
“My grandfather told me that ‘marry a woman who loves you not the one you love’ and I am now fully convinced that you love me. So I have a simple question for you”
Lawrence knelt down and got out an engagement ring from his pocket, slowly opened it and popped that auspicious question.
“Hellen, will you marry me?” He asked sincerely.
“Yes, marry me”
“O M G!”
“Is that a yes or no?”
“No, it’s a yes. Yes Yes” she screamed.
Lawrence slowly shoved in the ring on her f!nger. During that moment Cathy walked into the room.
“What the …., Oh sorry! what am I looking at? I mean what is happening here?” Cathy screamed.
“She will marry me” said Lawrence.
“Wow. This is so good. Congratulations to you two. I can’t wait to dance” said Cathy.
Lawrence and Hellen shared a pas-sionate k!ssin front of Cathy to [email protected] their new step of their relationsh!p. Cathy was busy taking pictures of them [email protected]
“Wow. I am really happy for you too guys.” Cathy said as tears of joy ran down her cheeks.
“Let me Leave the two of you so that you can talk out your heart’s to each other.” Cathy said.
“No actually, am leaving as well. I nee-d to prepare for a lecture and I nee-d to make arrangements for our dinner to [email protected] our engagement.” He said.
“Oh that’s so sweet of you Lawrence” Cathy said.
“Thank you” he said.
“If I may ask, why didn’t you propose her at the dinner this evening so that a lot of people can witness it?” Cathy asked..
“I will never take that chance in my life. So when a lot of people witness our engagement then what? Or what if she rejects me in front of all those people, how will I be moving about? Real men propose in pri-vate” he said.
“Okay, whichever am really happy”
“Hey babe, i will see you later” he said to Hellen.
Lawrence left the room leaving the two of them inside their room.
“You see how blessed you are! Some of us have to meet all sons of pharaoh who will abuse us before someone can engage us. You are really luck. plea-se take good care of this relationsh!p.”
“Thank you Cathy”
“So, when are you going to tell your mother about it?”
“I can’t tell my mother.”
“I am a cultured lady. I will tell my grandmother first who will in turn tell my mom”
“Which culture? You are just not sure of her reaction.”
“You might be right but I will tell granny first.”
“Okay, you can call her.”
“I will call her when you leave” Hellen said removing the ring from her f!nger.
“What are you doing?”
“Removing the ring”
“Why? Are you nuts?”
“Listen my dear, if a Bugatti can be put out of road to verify if it’s genuinely accessed, why can’t I re-move my ring to first confirm if its a real engagement or not?”
“I don’t un-derstand you. As for me, the day I will receive a ring on my f!nger, even queen Elizabeth will hear about it”
“Okay. Now go”
“But remember, even if you have been engaged earlier than me, am still order than you.”
“Okay I know, go now”
“Okay, what are we going to eat soon?”
“Eeeh ba miss engagement”
No sooner had Cathy left the room than Hellen called her grandmother.
“Yes granny, I have good news for you.”
“What? Tell me” said grandma Dinah.
“I have been engaged by my b©yfri£nd” she said.
“Wow. That’s so great news. Congratulations”
“Thank you ma”
“You are welcome. But you have to be very careful”
“Some men may engage you of they see that you are obsessed with marriage just to get un-der your Sk-irt. Close your legs ti-ghtly. Are we together?”
“Good. I will tell your grandpa about him losing his girlfriend”
“Aaaah ma okay.”
“Okay bye my dear”
