As Eddie started singing that song, I felt tears gather up in my eyes. My mother and father used to sing that song when we were together.
I remembered my parents and I couldn’t help but cry, I pulled down the cotten and locked the window when I saw him look at me.
I don’t want him to see me like this, not in the state. I can’t tell him anything if not I am going to endanger him, my uncle will trace him to the ends of Earth if he gets to find out.
I moved to my bed and sat on it weeping silently. “Princess, am sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you” Eddie said from outside my window.
“Its okay, I just need some time to myself” I said admist tears. I waited to hear him talk but he didn’t. I sighed and laid down on my bed.
I stared at the ceiling, looking at the light bulb on it, I stared into the white light remembering the good times I had with my parents. All the good things they did for Uncle Joe.
Why does he treat me like this?? Why does he hate me this much?? I thought as tears rolled down my eyes.
I was still weeping when I heard the
“Hey, little princess” he said grinning stupidly. I looked at him in tears and he staggered closer to where I was.
“Can’t you greet???” He asked and slapped me hard. I crushed to the floor holding my cheek in pain.
“Am sorry” I mumbled in tears.
“Good!” He said and moved to the window opening it and rolling the cotten up.
“Can’t you see this place is stuffy!!!! Do you want to kill yourself??!” He yelled in anger.
“Please don’t raise up the cotten” I said remembering Eddie and Ryan, they may be watching abf then my uncle may mark their faces.
“So you are telling me what to do now?? Such guts!” He yelled and removed his belt.
He came close to me and dragged me to the window making me face Eddie’s window. “He isn’t there” I thought in relieve.
“Why are you telling me not to raise the cotten hun!!!!” He asked as he raised up my gown roughly and hit me with the belt.
I groaned in pain trying not to make any sound. I can’t let Ryan nir Eddie see me like this, no..
He went ahead and drew down my panties and u heard him loose his trouser, I shut my eyes tightly expecting the worse.
As expected, he reached for my hands and tied them with a cloth behind my back, he also tied my mouth like he always did.
He reached for
“Hmmmmmmmmm!!!!” I groaned in great pain, I felt like I was going to die soon. I closed my eyes trying to endure the pain but I couldn’t.
I opened my eyes and looked into Eddie’s room to see him staring at me in shock.
I went down the stairs to ask Ryan if princess has told him anything about herself and he said “no”.
I explained to him what happened when I sang to her and he couldn’t tell me what was really going on.
” She seems to be going through tough times. She doesn’t go to college nor come out of that room” Ryan said looking sadly while he chewed his snacks.
“Did she tell you why???” I asked worriedly.
“She didn’t, why don’t you try talking to her as an adult. She may tell you things she can’t tell me because I am still very young” he said smiling.
“True! Thank you Ryan” I said and rushed back to my room. I need to talk to her.
I got to my room and was about calling her when I saw her with her eyes shut facing my room. My eyes widen as I saw a man much older than her by looks f**king her.
I stood there shocked, I couldn’t move nor talk. She opened her eyes and looked at me, I saw tears in her eyes. She looked at me and wept the more.
I looked at the man still in that shock and I saw how he used her without mercy, he kept banging her till he stopped and turned her to him.
I saw him slap her and I wanted to move to the window but I saw her hands waving to me not to. The man left the room, and I ran to the window.
She sat on the floor and started weeping. I felt anger raise in me, “Who the hell is that bastard!!!” I asked within gritted teeth.
“Eddie I don’t think you should involve yourself in this, you will pit yourself in danger” she said admist tears.
“What do you mean Princess!! That man just molested you and you expect me to see that and kept quite!!!” I yelled in fury.
“Enough!!!!! Enough!!! I have heard enough Eddie. You don’t know this man he is dangerous, if you try to do anything he would kill you!!!!! Am sorry you saw that but please don’t try to do anything!!!” She yelled in tears and pulled down the cotten.
“What the f**k is all this!!” I yelled and I heard her sob from inside her room.
🔪 Uncle Joe🔪
I walked out of Princess’s room feeling really happy. I can’t still believe this girl is mine.
I had gone to the lawyer to tell him to change the names on the will but he us proving stubborn, I need to clear him off my way.
Its because of this will princess is alive, once she signs on the documents I am going to kill her and travel faraway from here, where no one knows me.
I sat on the couch and lighted my cigar. I rested my hand on the back rest and then I remembered when princess asked me not to roll down the cotten.
“What could she be hiding??” I asked myself audibly.
I stood up and moved to the her room again, I opened the door and went in to find Princess weeping on the floor.
I ignored her and raised up the cotten. I looked down the street surveying it well, I then looked up and saw the window opposite her’s closed.
I looked around again for certainty before leaving the window. I moved close to her and she folded her legs up in fear.
“As from today, this cotten will be left raised like this” I said almost yelling. She nodded in tears, ” And let me warn you, if you try escaping or telling anyone about yourself, you and that person is dead!! Do you understand !!” I yelled at her.
“Yes” she mumbled. “Good” I said and walked out of her house.
💋 Princess POV💋
My uncle left my room and I sat were I was still crying heavily. “I want to die!!!! Is it a crime that I am born!!” I yelled in tears.
“Princess” Ryan called from outside my window. I stood up slowly and went to the window to see him.
“Hi Ryan” I said cleaning my eyes.
“I know you were crying, don’t pretend that you are fine” he said sadly and I couldn’t help but cry again.
“Ryan I am sorry for lying to you” I said admist tears.
“Princess, I want to understand you well. Please talk to me and my Brother Eddie, tell us what is really going on. Please!!!!” He said almost crying.
“Ryan” I called biting my lower lip.
“We want to help you Princess, that man is evil. He can decide to kill you one day” he said crying.
I nodded and cleaned my eyes. “I will tell you” I said and he smiled and moved from the window. I wanted to call him back when he appeared with Eddie.
Immediately I saw him I felt the ground should open and swallow me up, I felt so embarrassed. “Eddie I…” I said but he cut me off.
“Princess please don’t… I can’t stand to see you like that, its hurting me. Please let me help you” he said with pity.
I nodded and cleaned the tears from my eyes with my hand.
“Where are your parents??” He asked seriously.
“They are dead, they were murdered” I replied crying.
“Am so sorry princess” he said sadly while I nodded.
“Tell me, who is this man to you??” He asked.
“My uncle from my father’s side, he took me from our house after my parent died” I replied.
“So tell me Princess, when has this been going on??” Eddie asked looking right into my eyes.
“2 years” I replied looking down. “Two years!!!!” He yelled but later composed himself.
“Why haven’t you tried escaping??” He asked again.
“I tried once but he caught me, I beat me so much that day that I almost lost my life” I said looking up and I could ses Ryan crying heavily.
“Bastard!!” Eddie muttered angrily.
“Have you ever tried crying for help??” He asked.
“Yes, and for once in 2 years a man answered me, My uncle killed him when he knew I told him about myself” I added sobbing.
“Do you know why he acts like that??” He asked looking furious
“I don’t know, he just derives pleasure in hurting me. I never hated him nor acted bad to him” I replied in tears.
Eddie sighed heavily rubbing his hair. ” I feel like killing him right now!!! I know what to do!! ” he said boldly.
“What do you want to do Eddie, you can’t do anything stupid you know” I said anxiously.
“I am going to report to the cops” he said and Ryan nodded too.
“It won’t work, Uncle Joe has connections everywhere. When he was accused of murder some timesp ago he was released that same hour even tho he was truly at fault” I replied looking at Eddie.
“Shit!!!” He yelled hitting the wall with his fists. Ryan stood up and went closer to Eddie and hugged him.
“Brother please save her, she is my only friends, I love her so much. I don’t want her to die” he said weeping seriously.
Eddie looked at me with pain in his eyes, he tapped Ryan hand slowly. “I will help her Ryan, I will save her from that bi**h” he replied clenching his fist.
“Eddie, you are making a dangerous decision” I said fearfully.
“I don’t care Princess!!! All I want now is to save you from that bi**h you call a uncle” he said angrily.
