One Last Time (episode 6)
There’s nothing more painful and violating than someone forcefully having canal knowledge of you without your consent. That only is capable of shattering a person’s heart and emptying every bit of their self esteem. No one ever deserves to feel that way no matter whom they are. Stacy knew that Randy was capable of a lot of things but definitely not rape. She was devastated!
After the incident, Randy finally came to his senses and reached out to apologise but it was apparent that Stacy wasn’t interested in the relationship anymore. She hated him for forcefully touching her without her consent. The worst of it all was that after over a month of abstaining from committing fornicating, Randy just rendered all her efforts useless.
Stacy felt betrayed, hurt, guilty and condemned. At that moment, she was just thinking of how to face God and where she would even start asking for forgiveness from. It was as though she was back to square one in her salvation journey, even though it wasn’t her fault. She couldn’t even look at Randy in the face because he now looked like a monster to her.
“Baby I’m so sorry, I honestly don’t know what came over me” Randy pleaded but Stacy’s mind was already made up so she didn’t care about his apology. “I hate you, I hate you! You are a monster, stay away from me, it’s over between us! How could you do this? You know about my new salvation journey and how much it means to me but all you care about is yourself. You are selfish, wicked and a monster, leave me alone because it’s over between us” Stacy said with tears in her eyes as she wore her clothes to leave.
Stacy hurriedly wore her clothes, grabbed her car keys and wanted to zoom out when Randy stopped her by grabbing her on the waist. In his mind, he thought her heart would melt when he does that because it had worked for him in the past, but what he didn’t know was that things had changed.
Immediately he reached out to stop her, Stacy knocked his hands off and pushed him away with all her strength. “Don’t you dare touch me ever again in your life. It seems you don’t understand simple English anyone, I said it’s over, leave me alone!” She flared up and rushed to the door, opened it and zoomed out with her car.
Randy confusingly stood at his balcony and was consumed with guilt. It was there and then that he realised that Stacy really meant it when she said she was now a changed person.
Initially, Randy thought it was just a joke but everything was now clear that she meant what she said. It’s sad that it had to cost him his relationship with her before he could realise that. He felt broken and decided to let that day slide so she could cool her temper before he goes begging.
On the other hand, Stacy cried all through her ride home. She was extremely devastated and felt condemned. At that moment, she didn’t even know where to start asking God forgiveness from. After over a month of successful keeping herself, Randy just chose to make it all in vain by raping her. Poor Stacy!
“How could he do this to me? After all the love I showed him, then he decides to pay me by forcing sleeping with me. God I’m so sorry, I know you don’t work by emotions but rather by principles, but it isn’t my fault. However, I take full responsibility of all that happened and I ask for your forgiveness. I’m so sorry Lord” she said sobbing.
Even with all the prayer of forgiveness Stacy rendered to God, she still felt condemned. It hurt her badly to know that Randy was the one that put her in such position. At that broken state, Stacy knew one thing for sure and it was the fact that it was over between her and Randy. “I’m never going back to that monster, I hate him so much for doing this to me” Stacy said as she cried bitterly.
All through that night, she couldn’t sleep well as she kept tossing back and forth on the bed. She prayed over a thousand times for forgiveness but still felt God hadn’t forgiven her yet. If only she knew that God forgave her the very first time she genuinely said ‘I’m sorry’, then she would have stopped eating herself up. I guess she hadn’t forgiven herself for still keeping a person like Randy as her partner even after being introduced to light.
Light and darkness can’t coexist in the same place; it’s either one gives room for the other to dominate because they both can’t dominate at the same time. The best thing Stacy would have done was to walk away from the relationship, since Randy made it clear to her that he wasn’t ready to change. It’s a good thing her eyes was now clear to see the incompatibility between her relationship with Randy and her new found life. After much heartache, Stacy finally went to bed.
From that day henceforth, she avoided Randy like a plague. Randy called over and over again till she had to block his line from calling her. He came knocking countlessly but she always pretended to be away and never opened the door for him. Randy wanted her back but things had already gotten out of control because Stacy’s mind was made up.
As things were going sideways with Randy, Noble and Stacy were gradually becoming inseparable. She didn’t tell him of all the drama that had been going on in her personal life just to avoid loosing her value in his eyes(see finish).
Noble was so in love with the new lady Stacy was becoming and started wanting more than friendship. Unknowingly to him, Stacy was also very much attracted to him but she never gave him any clue to avoid rejection. Noble always picked her up for random dates and also invited her for godly seminars.
It happened that there was this relationship seminar they attended together. Noble just thought it would be good for them to get knowledge on that area of life, that’s why they went for the seminar and nothing else.
As they sermon was going on, the speaker would say some cute romantic things and they would all laugh. Noble’s eyes jammed with hers several times and they smiled and removed eye contacts.
Unknowingly to Stacy, Noble was dying to tell her how he felt but just didn’t know what her reaction would be like. Unable to hold his emotions any longer, he brought out his jotter, tore a little part of it and wrote; “You are beautiful and have stolen someone’s heart”.
When he was done writing, he passed the sheet of paper down to Stacy and she read what he wrote and started blushing. She took her pen and wrote “who’s heart did I steal?” and passed the paper back to Noble.
When he read what she wrote, he smiled and replied saying “You have stolen my heart, can I have it back?”. He passed the paper back to Stacy and she started laughing.
She looked at him and said “Naahhh, I’m not giving it back” and Noble slowly whispered; “I Love You Stacy”.
