Me ungrateful? ?
Are you the first person to help somebody ..Jacinta said
Stop it both of you. ..I said
The were both silent.
Jacinta you were wrong ,you have no right to talk to her like that, don’t you feel any remorse that you have offended your sister ??…. I asked her
Heeh stop it there , don’t talk to my babe like this… James said defending Jacinta
Really its now your babe, with about the woman you have been deceiving for years now, who is she to you.??? I asked James
He didn’t reply me as usual.
Am so sorry for deceiving you, He said
This is how it began, from the beginning. ..
He knew he owe Annabel an explanation, we all sat down as he narrated his own side of the story.
JAMES side of the story.
I met both of you in our secondary school days, I fell in love with Jacinta first while I was friends with Annabel.
Jacinta was sweet ,warm , beautiful and sexy, I was emotional in love with her, I never told her since she was mostly with Annabel until one day Annabel didn’t come to school so I made my move.
She never gave me a tough time as if she has been waiting for me to ask her out. She gave ma a warm reception and we started dating.
But I tried to keep it a secret from everyone since we were both teenagers.
One Saturday evening Jacinta came to my house ,my parents were not at home they traveled. She tempted me into making love with her and I fell for her charm ,She was too sexy to resist.
After we made love I discovered she was still a virgin, its gladdens my heart that I was the first person to break her virginity.
We really had fun that weekend, she told me she lied to her parents that she was going to Annabel place for the weekend, while she spent it with me.
Our love became strong until Peter came into the picture, Peter was a new boy from school then, his parents were so rich and he had an eye for Jacinta.
Since no one knows we were dating the became so difficult to do anything about it, i noticed Jacinta stopped spending time with me but more time with Peter. I wasn’t comfortable with it, when I confronted her she ignored me and later told me.
I don’t spent much time with her that she has nothing to do with Peter. She said
Which I didn’t believe, I knew something wasn’t right. I asked her again what she meant by not spending quality time with her.
When was the last time you made love to me , she asked.
Jacinta its not all about sex, I love you that what matters .
She didn’t reply me she just snubbed me and left.
I was so angry and decided to make her jealous .
She kept on hanging out with Peter, even in class they will be talking and laughing together to make be more angry. Then I approached Annabel.
It took her a very long time to give me a reply, and one day she eventually did, I was so happy and I started hanging out with Annabel and spending more time with her to make Jacinta jealous.
Yet Jacinta didn’t even pay any attention, pretending like she didn’t care who I date .
We were almost finishing high school and was preparing for Senior WACE examination. ‘
When Jacinta came to my house one Friday very so drunk, my parents had gone for a weekend trip.
I was so angry with her for getting herself drunk and coming to my house, what if my parents was at home.
She begged me to forgive her that we should continue dating, I refused knowing that I was with her sister.
But as we were talking she undress herself trying to seduce me and I fell for her, we had sex that night .
When I woke up the next morning, she was already gone. I wasn’t happy and promised if I see her on Monday we would talk about why she left without a word.
On Monday she subbed me and started hanging out with Peter again.
I was so angry and decided to focus on Annabel because she loved me so much.
Time passed, we graduated from school and went our separate ways, I didn’t hear from Jacinta anymore.
Until two years ago, she called me and told me she had a son for me I was shocked and denied it thinking she was lying, until I saw my boy, he looked so much like me, her Aunty has been taking care if him ever since she was out of the country.
I started developing feelings for Jacinta since then and we started talking to each other more often, till she told me she was coming this year. And when she came I couldn’t resist her beauty I fell in love with her all over again.
I am so sorry Annabel, its better you knew the truth, am so sorry for deceiving you all this years, I never loved you but since you loved me and showed me so much care, I couldn’t leave you.
Please forgive me ,i want to be with the love of my life now …
James said to Annabel .
Annabel’s eyes was filled with Tears .
She had cried for so long …
Jacinta you’re my own blood , how could you betray me like this for so long ,you can hear James i never took your man its like the other way around. This happened because you never told me from the beginning that you both were dating . Annabel said in tears .
Jacinta quickly went upstairs and packed all her bag and was ready to leave …
I don’t still understand why you’re not saying anything now ….are you tried of calling me names and what i don’t understand is you seducing Alex while having sex with James claiming he is the love of your life .. Annabel said.
James turn to Jacinta looking at her trying to process what Annabel said
I never seduced him stop lying on me …Jacinta screamed…
You too are made for each other , you are both full of lies and deceit..i wish you two good luck’.
Please leave my house …Annabel said
As she burst in tears ….
I Tried to console Annabel but she wouldn’t listen to me, she just went straight to her room and kept crying . I didn’t know what to do because I love her dearly and want her to recover quickly from the hurt and pain she has been feeling? ?
The next day she came out from her room to receive a package from the delivery man, i waited for her to collect the package close the sitting room door and i quickly came out from the kitchen to meet her .
How are you doing Annabel ? ?
Am not fine? ? She replied
Why are sweating she asked ??
I have been cooking ??
Why ?? Is the cook not around ?? She asked
I gave her a day off ..i said
Ok i see …
She didn’t say anything rather trying to open her package.
I prepared Rice, stew and plantain, should I serve yours??
Thank you so much for preparing food but am not hungry?
How can you do this to yourself, you haven’t eaten since morning. ..please try to eat a little. Please
How can James and Jacinta do this to me ,she burst into tears.
Its ok, I know its not easy but try to forget about them , don’t give them the pleasure of been so happy that you’re down. Besides I am here for you, to love and care for you in the best way I can.
I know its too soon but I really need to tell you some important only if you promise to eat. ..
Really, ok I will eat. ..
We both went to the dinning table, I served the food and we both ate.
While eating she would beg me to tell her what I wanted to say earlier but I will kept quiet so as to make her eat more.
She could finish the portion of food I gave to her but at least she ate something.
Shared on whatsapp by Martino.
After eating , i washed the dishes and went to her room. She was absent minded that she didn’t know when entered the room.
Annabel. ..not again, snap out of it , they’re not worth your tears . Don’t think too much about it, things will be better in time.
Ok dear, I hope so. ..
What is that thing you wanted to talk to me about? ?? She asked.
I am in love with you, Annabel.
Right from the day I woke up on the *hospital bed and saw your beautiful face and how you were holding on the me.
I felt so much relieve that someone was by my side despite my* situation, it seem almost impossible but you encouraged me all through and love me unconditionally. ..then I knew I had found the right person for me.
But after seeing James, I was discouraged , the thought of seeing another man around you and on a second thought I had hope and said to myself, I might have an opportunity to love you, one day.
And I believe that day is Today.”
I have remembered everything about my life ..
It happened last week when I went to my wife grave..my memory came back.
Its was really a painful Friday for me that particular day but you brought light to the darkness in my life.
I know how you feel right now but I still needed to tell you how I feel about you.
Also please don’t cry from those two. ..
Something bad would have happened to you, if we had not caught them together. I said.
I have heard all you said and I think about it but I am curious of what would have happened if I had no caught James and Jacinta.
Sometime last week I over heard their conversion. .when I got home from work .
I saw Jacinta sitting on James lap romancing and they were planning with your secretary from work to sell this house and your father company , they knew you are easy going and wouldn’t notice signing the documents.
They also knew you trust people easily and they want to render you penniless and travel out of the country together.
So I had to stop you from travelling this weekend and made sure you catch them in the act before things get out of hand or beyond your control. Even if i don’t love you , I will still help you because you a woman with a beautiful soul. No harm will come you my dear. I love you with all my heart.
After talking for a while I left her room and allow her to rest. I knew she needed some time alone.
After that day she started getting better and we became close friends, she haven’t replied me yet but I don’t mind to wait ,so far we are together I am happy.
I also knew she loved me too. But she needed a break from what just happened .
One month later, I told her I will be moving out to get my own apartment but she refused and insisted I stayed with her .
Am a man Annabel, you’ve done so much for me, I need my own apartment to start my life afresh. ..
Please don’t leave me. ..she said
I am not leaving you , I will still be at your Beck and call.
She didn’t seem convinced. ..
I love you Alex. ..,I love you so much and I will be happy to spend the rest of my life with you. She said
Hmmm you’re bribing me right? ?
We both laughed.
Come I want to show you something. ..
I took her to the balcony. ,i had designed it with beautiful flowers and decoration.
I went on my knees…
Marry me Annabel
She was so surprised and Amazed.
Yes, Yes, Yes, she said happily and Jumping. ”
Thank you Alex for coming into my life, its doesn’t matter how we met but I knew you will be my Sunshine. She said
I Wore the ring on her fingers and we kissed so passionately .
I am still moving, I whispered in her ear.
Ok sir ,she replied.
We moved to a beautiful apartment, he bought, Annabel was so happy because that house has so many memories she wanted to forget.
After some months we got married and Annabel became pregnant immediately after.
Jacinta left James because he was so broke and couldn’t care for her anymore. She took her son and moved to another city to start all over , she couldn’t travel back since she had no money. Annabel was always helping her, but she betrayed her helper.
After some months Annabel gave birth to twin boys and we become so happy.
It was the worse day of my life that FRIDAY but it made me meet someone who changed everything about my life and made it colourful.
I don’t know your situation right now but I would want you not to give up but have faith the things will get better ,its only a matter of time and remember What God cannot do, does not exists
