HEALER – episode 11



Kendra stared at Connor like she hasn’t seen
him before. Actually she hasn’t seen him in
three weeks almost a month when she
would have been dead. Aliyah had visited
her and told her everything that had
happened when Connor c@m£ looking for
her at Aliyah’s. She had known it would
come to that. She thanked God she hasn’t
gone to stay at her friend’s place.
Connor stepped forward but she remained
where she was. Normally she would have
reared back in fear.
“Hello, Kendra.”

He said. Kendra knew that she had never ran
away from him before even with everything
he had done to her and she was sure that
after two days he had expected to see her
back at the house regardless of what had
happened. But he didn’t.
“I haven’t seen you at the house lately. What
Are you kidding me?! She looked at him and
walked to her car, he chased after her,
pu-lling her to fave him.
“Kendra, plea-se. I want you back.”
“Connor let go off me.”.
She said not looked ng at him.
” Kendra, plea-se. Don’t do this. I’m sorry
about what happened. I don’t know what
c@m£ over me and I shouldn’t have done

She looked up at him. “Really? Then after
two days you’ll repeat this same words to
me. Its no longer a new thing to me because
I alre-ady know those apology words by
heart. Get your hands off me,Connor. Before
I scream for help.”
“Kendra, I promise to change. I will change,
baby. plea-se don’t do this to me. I nee-d you
“Connor, move!”
She snapped. Kendra didn’t want to look at
his face because the psych0tic guy seemed
to know how to attra-ct pity with the way he
made a face. She kept her gaze to her car
“Where do you stay? Where are you now?”
“Get out,Connor. Its none of your business.”
She pushed away from him, quic-kly got into
her car and zoomed off without heeding the
voice of her husband to wait. She drove into
Alex’s mother’s house and rested her head
against the head rest to gain her composure
back. The tiny tears that were forming at the
corner of her eyes were brushed off by her
handkerchief and she sighed and pu-ll-ed
herself back together.

Alex joined them for dinner that night. But
he didn’t sit beside her, he took his position
opposite her. She heard Lisa say something
to everyone about how her day at school
was today and how mean her lecturer was.
Alex made a big joke out of it and everyone
laughed with Lisa shooting sharp gazes at
him. When his eyes met Kendra’s, he smiled
and win-ked at her. She blu-shed pink and
lowered her gaze smiling. When she raised
her gaze at his mother, she was giving Alex
a look which means that she had seen them.
Alex lowered his head and laughed.
“Leave the young lady alone,Alex.”
He grinned.

“Oh, mum. But you know I’m not used to
leaving beautiful young ladies alone.”
He said and his mother chuckled.
While it was time to take the dirty dishes to
the kitchen she had helped Lisa do it but she
could feel Alex’s eyes on her, smiling at her.
She heard foot steps in the kitchen while
she was washing the dishes and knew
whom it was even before she felt the brush
of his strong hands on her from behind. His
hands skidded down from her shoulders to
her hands that were alre-ady soapy and in
the sink. His hands went in there and
enclosed her hands.
“Alex, what are you doing?”
She said but her voice was failing her.
“How did your day go?”
“It went well.” She remembered the
encounter with Connor but her memory
pla-yed tricks with her when his hands lifted
her soapy hand up to her che-st. She
chuckled with her eyes closed.
“What are you doing?”
She heard him chuckle. “Showing you

His hands guided hers up to her n£¢kline.
Then with her soapy hands his hands went
into her blouse to her b—–s beneath her
br@, ru-bbing gently against her n—–s. The
we-tness of their soapy hands and the way
he ru-bbe-d against her b—–s brou-ght
plea-sure to her and a sigh escaped her. He
“You like that.”.
She g@sped and felt dizzy as she smiled. and

” Yes, I…”
But she couldn’t go on with her statement.
The voice and foot steps of Lisa interrupted
them as his sister stepped in and she was in
call.But they had alre-ady st©pped. She looked
at both of them and she must have s-en-sed a
tension because Alex was grinning at her
and Kendra was feeling shaky. She put her
hands in the sink smiling at Kendra.
“Its okay. I’ll do it.”
She said. Kendra smiled and left the kitchen.
Lisa looked up at her brother.
“You’re impossible.”
He laughed…
