I was really confused, Shayne left without forgiving me. I was very sure no one raped me , I am very sure of it
I remained upstair without going down to eat lunch or dinner, I had no appetite
I was really down and weak, I stayed up waiting for Shayne
I glanced at the wall clock, it was already past midnight and Shayne wasn’t back
“ Sofia, see what you did to yourself”. I said sobbing and hitting my chest..
I kept on waiting hoping Shayne would come home but he never came …:
I stared at the man begging in front of me, he is the owner of the Luna club& suites
“ Shayne , pls I know nothing about it”.he pleaded
“My wife was framed in your club and you don’t know anything”. I said eyeing him
“I swear with my life, I know nothing about it”. He continued pleading
“ Then you can say bye to your club”. I said , I will make sure it remained closed
“Shayne don’t do this to me”. He said going on his needs, remember I am like a big brother to you ..
I glared at him coldly
“ That is the only reason you are still alive”. I said bending down.
“ what else do you want Shayne?”. He asked, the culprit have been arrested.
“ do you think I am only interested in the culprit, I want to find the idiot in bed with my wife”. I shouted
I brought one of the framed pictures and showed it to him
“ Do you know this man?”. I asked him
He stared at the picture for a while
“He is not a worker at the club but I do see his face around the club”. He said
“ really”. I asked , tell me more
“He is a friend to a waiter in the club, you can get a lead by questioning the waiter”. He suggested
“ what is the name of the waiter and where can I find him?”. I asked
“His Name is Andrew and he lives behind the club”. He said
“ Good”, you can go”. I told him
“ Shayne, please promise me when you find out everything you will open my club back”. He said
“ promise”. I said
He signed in relief
“Bill”, Get Andrew here right now. I ordered one of my boys
“ yes sir”. He replied and left….
I won’t be able to rest until I get the whole truth . I decided to stay in my private mansion.
I need to distance my self from Sofia for sometime so I won’t hurt her…
I could not go to school the next day. I was scared of what people might say..
I was so weak, My phone suddenly rang.I checked the caller ,it was Tina
I picked it after the second ring
“ Helo”. I said
“ Sofia “. She called , I am very sorry
“ it is not your fault Tina”. I said assuring her, I could never have trusted Donna”. I said
“Shayne is still mad right?”. She asked
“ yeah”. I replied and started crying
“ babe don’t cry, it will be fine
“ Sure”. I said wiping my tears
“ what of Donna, is she in school?”. I asked
“Oh! no, she has been expelled”. She said, That girl is evil
“ Yes, she is . I replied as I ended the call
i just want Shayne back, I just want him back……..
“Please please please”. Andrew pleaded, he was screaming
“ Continue beating him”. I instructed my boys
I watched as they beat him up and when I was satisfied I ordered them to stop
“ where is your friend?”. I asked yelling at him.
“ he is laying low for now”. He replied whimpering
“ really”. I asked
“ do you know where he is?”. I asked
“No, yes .. I mean no”. He stammered
“ I see,maybe you want me to pluck your eyes out before you talk”. I asked
“ No please, I will write it down for you”. He said
I signalled the boys to bring a jotter and a pen and gave it to Andrew who quickly wrote down the address.
“ Good, so tell me everything you know about it”. I said to Andrew
I listened to him as he explained everything to me in details, how Sofia drink was drugged, how he was made to distract Tina by feigning interest in her,how a man purposely led Sofia to a room when she was feeling dizzy and how he took the pictures of Sofia and his friend…
“ Did he rape her?”. I asked
“ No, he didn’t, we didn’t do anything to her. We were instructed to fake everything……
She was not naked under the blanket, she was wearing her pant and bra. He explained
I signed in relief
“ Sofia was not touched”
“Who instructed you?”. I suddenly asked
“ it was Donna”. He said
I drove to the police station to know if there was any new update on the case
I walked straight to Mr Oscar office
“ Shayne”. He called as soon as he said me
“ Have the b***h confessed”. I asked
“ No, she is still saying the same thing that she is innocent”.
“ let me see her”.i said
He nodded and led me to the cell that lexy was kept.
I stared at the woman in front of me, she looked unkempt
“ b***h”. I called
She turned to look at me and started screaming immediately her gaze met mine
“ i did not do it, I did not do it, she kept on screaming
I looked at Oscar
“ is she mad?”. I asked
“ That is how she have been since the day we brought her here”. He said
“ don’t be confused by her act”, I said to Oscar, Keep on interrogating her till she says the truth
My phone suddenly rang and it was a call from Bella
“ Shayne”, she called as I picked it up
“ Bella, how are you?”. I greeted
“ Shayne I want to see you,can you come over?”. She asked
“ sure”. I said , I will be there in an hour time
“ okay, she said and ended the call…
I drove to Sofia’s mum mansion and I sighted Bella
It was obvious she had been waiting for me, she ran to meet me immediately I got down from the car
“Shayne”. She said running to hug me, I wrapped her in a warm embrace and she held my hands leading me inside
Sofia’s mum was in the sitting room weaving a basket when I came in
“ hello ma”. I greeted her
“Shayne , how are you?”. She asked
I am fine . I replied
“ how is Sofia?”. She asked
I remained quiet
“ Shayne in a relationship, it is normal for challenges like this to be present, it is normal for mistakes to be present but what matters is the way you settle it”. She said , I believe love can conquer all
I stood there thinking about what she said when Bella tugged my clothes
“ I want to show you something”. She said, let us go
I followed her and she entered a room, it was obvious the room belongs to her.
“Sit”.she commanded and I sat down wondering what she wanted to show me. She searched through a book shelf and brought out a small diary
“ here, she said , this is Sofia diary, you can read it”.
I took the diary from her and opened it slowly, I read the first page , it was all about me.
The second , the third everything was all about me
I got to the place where she wrote
“ Shayne gazed at me and I am sure to be the happiest person in the whole wide world”
I laughed as I continued turning the pages
“ I love you so much Shayne, I wish I can wake up in your arms, but It is just a hopeless dream as I am a poor maid”……
“ you were her dreams before she met you and you are still that dream”. Bella said, i always thought she was crazy because she loved you even when it seems impossible for you to love her back”. She continued
I stared at the little girl in surprise, she was so brilliant
“ so Shayne I am begging you to forgive my sister”. She went on her knees pleading
I took her up and wrapped her in my arms ..
I thought of Sofia , I really missed her, I really do………
Aww Bella is such a good sister
