💞💞(Twist of fate)💞💞
By. Humble Smith & Clara William
My whole body was weak and I really found it hard to stand up..
Everywhere was totally dark, I don’t know if it was night, my mom is no where so I have no one to ask if it was night or day..
The rain had drenched me, it has stopped but the chilling breeze was really sending shivers all over my body..
I was finally standing up but I couldn’t move my feet..
How can I move when I don’t know what or where I would be heading to..
The silence around me was really scary and I couldn’t stop my tears..
I was afraid to cry, who knows I may end up making my presence known to some bad boys..
I stood still like a statue shedding tears wishing my mother would just come that moment..
Just then, I heard some footstep from afar, I could also hear some group of boys talking to themselves..
“Who is that girl?” I heard a voice..
Fear gripped me and I turned my face to the other side praying I wasn’t the one they were talking to..
“Wow, what is a pretty lady doing here under the cold weather..guess she is in need of some hot
My legs wobbled as I spread my palm to know if something was on my way..
“Come here!!!” One of them growled and I took to my heel..
They chased me without knowing i was blind..
With full force, I hit my head on a wall which I hadn’t seen…
The pain that I felt can not be compared to any other thing,
It was so much excruciating that as I fell, I couldn’t move any part of my body…
My whole body went numb as I stared at the darkness which was all I could see..
I wish to die but death isn’t coming, all that is coming my way is pain and anguish..
I need a quick death, that would stop all these suffering, I solemly pray that this boys would kill me..
“How couldn’t she see that wall??..is she that fretful..” They laughed as they got closer and closer..
“So you couldn’t see that wall?” One of them asked but I didn’t even say anything..
“Can’t you talk?” I heard a growl and before I could even know it, one of the boys grabbed my gown and tore it..
“If you can’t talk then I guess you can scream..” They laughed..
I was still and didn’t struggled a bit..
I can’t even see anyone but they were removing my cloths one after the other..
I was to be raped but I am happy and I pray I would die from this rape..
My life is worthless, no one to run to..
Everyone is gone, my dad hates
This is the time I needs these people most, I need them to make my life have a little meaning, but they had all disappeared..
A blind girl without a helper…do you know how I feels to be covered with darkness for years..
You have eyes but can’t see, everyone around you hates you so badly,
You are had been confirmed a curse..my mom had left and now I am suffering because she is gone,
Tears couldn’t stop falling down freely, my heart was beating very fast, I wish it wouldn’t be painful but that was a stupid wish..
They drew me roughly to a corner with laughter,
There was nothing I could do..
My mind was even far away from what was about to happen, I was really feeling great pain in me..
Pain of the heart, pain gotten when people who supposed to love and care for you couldn’t show you any love instead they all disappeared when you really needed them..
The boys drew down my under wears and widened my legs,
I never knew how rape feels like, I am a virgin who doesn’t even know how it feels like to have sex..
I shut my eyes as I waited for the worst..
A thrust into my p***y made a very loud shrill of pain escape my lips..
It was so painful that I thought I would die..
They forced their selves in me furiously ignoring my screams, i had never felt this kind of pain in my life,
It was so terrible that my heart couldn’t stop bleeding, some liquid substance was rolling down my legs, it dawned on me that I had lose my virginity with deep pain..
My legs shivered and my whole body turned sweaty, I shook every part of my body to rescue my self from the pain but it was impossible, the men pinned me down,
Everyone took his round and when they were done, I couldn’t get myself,
I was left there in the deepest darkness which was all over me, nowhere to go, I can’t even stand up..
Terrible pain filled my whole body, I was whimpering but couldn’t cry out loud..
No word can be used to express how I felt as they left, I felt wasted, I felt like a trash, being raped could be better if you aren’t a virgin..
They had broke me up forcefully, right now, my legs are numb..
I can’t even shake my legs.
More tears rolled down my cheeks as pain swept my whole body…
“Please I want to die, please death, I plead..kill me and stop all these pain, please…” I muttered to myself as shivers ran through me..
What kind of life is this?
Every single second and minute of my life is filled with nothing other than anguish and pain..
I took a deep breath and tried rising to my feet, it was very hard but I have to..
I need to walk into my death, I wish I would walk to the middle of the road and get killed,
I don’t even know where I was, there was no one talking to me, every where was silent with only little faraway murmurs making me doubt if there was anyone living around there
Finally, with the last strength I had, I stood up slowly..
Great pain circled my whole body from head to toe, my legs wobbled and I felt dizzy…
My heart was heavy with sorrow as I recalled it was my father who pushed me out in the dark…
I was really hated by every single human around,
I cried, cried and cried to myself, myself alone, there is no one to cry to so I cry all to myself as the pain grew more intense…
I took a step forward and my head spined…
I took another and felt like I was dying, everywhere was turning around, my head was pounding so badly, my legs was very weak that it couldn’t carry my body..
I tried taking another step but couldn’t, everywhere went wild and I found myself falling hardly on the ground..
I grimaced as more pain rushed in..
I couldn’t bear it any longer, I guess it is over, I closed my already blinded eyes before everything black out…
I pray I’m dead..
“Why are you not asleep?” I heard Anna’s voice..
“I’m restless, I feels it deep inside me that presh is in pain, I don’t know how possible it is..but..it seems so real, I can even hear her cry…” I said with my eyes getting wet..
“Victor… Are you okay??..” She asked gawpjng at me..
I took a deep breath and jolted up from the bed..
“What are you doing?” She asked and I took her hand and placed it to my chest which was beating very fast .
“Do you feel it?..do you see how it beat?..please take me to her..I don’t know the way..” I pleaded and she rolled her eyes..
“Never!!!..stop saying that, I feel like breaking your head for saying those stupid words..” She seethed..
“If you wouldn’t take me to her, it is fine..I don’t know why you can’t be a little bit compassionate, you had lived here for some months now and it is clear you know of her..why wouldn’t you have mercy on that suffering soul and save her from pain and hunger..” I purred with emotions as my mind recalled that day I met her…
It was so much for me to bear, a young beautiful lady in darkness, not seeing a single light, it broke my heart and made me want to even give her my own eyes..
I felt like shedding tears right now..my instinct is telling me she is in pain, I want to go and meet her but I don’t know the route, Anna is the only person that can show me the way but she wouldn’t agree…
It was night but everywhere is brightened by the street lights..
“Anna please take me to her, if she is fine, I’ll come back here without wasting a single minute” I pleaded..
“That part of the village is for the wretched and not for a prince like you, c’mon..” She soothed and placed her hand on my shoulder..
I don’t even know what prompted me, I pushed her away from me..
“If you can’t do this for me, then just know I am hating you!!” I growled and she sighed..
“Okay I’ll take you to her house..” She breathed and my heart leaped for joy..
I grabbed her closer and kissed her lips .
“You will go with my personal guard, he knows her house..” She said and put a call across..
A young hefty man came in immediately..
“Take him to that blind girl’s house, he wants to see her” she said dryly and plopped down on the bed..
“Thanks you!!” I squeaked and rushed out with the guard..
“Victor is coming to her house, what should we do?” I asked the person I just called..
“Ugh??..how??..what really happened?” She asked
“It’s not time for question, what should we do?” I asked and a brief silence eloped us..
“She would be put into the dry well all through this night, the next day, we would send some of our guard in disguise to kill her mother right there in her house before bringing presh out of the well..” Her voice sounded leaving a wide smile on my face…
I woke up and found myself in a dark room,
What I’m I even saying, even if the room was bright, I would still see it dark, that is what a blind person only knows..
everywhere was silent and for some moment, I thought I was in the spirit world, I thought I was dead because the only thing I could remember was when I fell down and black out..
How did I got here?
Who brought me here??
I kept asking myself as I tried to stand up which was really difficult due to the pain I was feeling between my legs..
The pain made me recall what happened to me, it made me remember that I was raped..
Tears rolled down profusely as I tried sitting up..
“Hey, you are awake so soon, you must be a strong girl” I heard a strange feminine voice say to me
“Who are you?” I asked getting frightened..
“Calm down, I mean no harm dear..decided to help you after seeing those boys molest you” she purred and I sighed..
“I don’t know who you are, I can’t see you..do you know how my life is?..I’m blind and I’m staying in a strange place, can I trust you?” I sobbed and she wrapped her arm round my body..
“I don’t know you but, I feel your pain, you are passing through a lot dear, I’m a mother without a child, I would take care of you” she said and I sighed..
“I don’t want you to take care of me..all I want is for you to give me a knife please can you do it for me??” I questioned with a heavy heart..
“Are you kidding me??..do you want to kill your self?..I wouldn’t allow you do that..” She exclaimed and I took a deep breath
“Do you even know what I am passing through?..do you even know a bit of how it feels being I’m darkness with everyone hating and hating you so much?..you don’t know all because you have your eyes..you can see..” I paused and whimpered bitterly..
The fact that my mom left me was really piercing my heart deeply, I could feel my heart bleed in excruciating pain
How could she leave me?
Why is my life even going this way..
“Why don’t you want to kill me?” I asked the strange woman..
“Stop those talk, it is foolish, I brought your food..” She said and I jolted up in frustration..
“Why do you want me to live?..did I tell you I want to be alive?..why did you even save me!!
I hate you for that!!!
The only way you can show me love is by killing me, my life is a curse..
It has to end!!!
” please calm down.. I..know…”
“You know nothing!!!..take me out of this place and leave me in the middle of the road..leave me there to die!!..I am a curse, I will shatter your life if I stay here..” I bawled
“Can you eat first, I’ll think of all this later..” She cooed and I sighed
I sat down on the bed and she fed me carefully..
I kept on grumbling…
Life was seeping into me, I don’t want it..
I need death, why does anyone I meet leaves me alive, they would never wants me to die after all my plea..
I pray they would experience a bit of what I am passing through, maybe with that..they would know death is the best option..
“What happened??..she was not found?..they searched all through that house…even her mother is missing??..what???” I exclaimed in anger..
What if Victor had taken her..could that be..
“Anna!!” I heard Victor call out making me flinch..
I smiled inwardly as I saw his face drawn..
“I couldn’t find her and her mother, she is missing..” He poured out with a deep breath of pain..
“So can you sleep now, o don’t understand why you suddenly puck interest in some wretched soul out there, you are a Prince and would late be the king, stop anything you have with the poverty stricken people..” She spited out and I could see hatred in her eyes..
“What much do you really know about that blind girl, you seem to hate her so badly even when you haven’t seen her, what is it?” He asked staring at me
How would I tell him that the blind girl is my worst nightmare, someone I had to keep far away from him if I would want to get what I want…
Long ago, I could have killed Presh but she couldn’t be killed, death wasn’t with her and a strong force was really guarding her life preventing death from stealing her..
She couldn’t be killed so the only option was making her see hell on earth..
“I need to sleep..” I muttered and lay on the bed leaving Victor deep in thought..
The way he was being disturbed really made me insecure, I made a big mistake allowing him come to the village alone, I would have drove him down here by myself..
Never had I thought that he would ever meet presh on his way here..
I think we have to travel back to the town very soon, presh needs to be very far away from him or I would be doomed..
Something I had kept hidden for so long would come out and that would be the end of me..
It was morning the next day…
I woke up and took a quick bath before picking my phone…
“Search for her through out the village, get whoever that had helped her and kill that person alongside her mother..” I typed in and send to a number
I deleted the message after it was sent before taking a deep breath…
I can’t wait to kill Presh’s mother…how did I even left her alive all this while…
When she is dead, Presh would be left all alone in darkness, who knows she may probably die,
That would be the greatest news I would ever hear..
“Anna, I need to go and check on her..” I heard Victor’s voice drift me out of my thoughts..
“You are going to check on who this morning?” I asked angrily..
“Presh..I need to make sure she is alright..” He replied
“And when did that started?..when did you start checking on her and making sure she is alright..so I’m now a piece of trash to you ugh?” I seethed and he sighed..
“We would talk when I comes back” he snapped and walked away leaving me boil in anger..
“Presh would soon be a forgotten chapter when I mom is killed and she was chased out by her dad, she would eventually die of hunger and heat from the sun..” I can’t help laughing..
It sounds so good…
💋 Presh’s POV💋
“It is morning” I heard the strange voice again..
“Mom, so I am still alive?” I asked her as I yawn from my sleep..
“Wow!..did you just called me mom..I really love it..” She squeaked in glee..
I stood up tiredly and started walking away weakly..
“What are you doing?” She shouted..
“When I told you not to feed me, I meant you should let me die, you don’t wanna help me end this pain, well, I’ll do it myself..” I sobbed in the dark, it was morning like she said but I am still in this endless darkness..
Tears flowed down freely with my heart growing heavy..
I walked stupidly with the woman following me gesturing for me to stop, I sensed she was about grabbing me so I ran away as fast as my leg could carry…
She chased me..
I was running straight with fear, I wasn’t ready to hit…
I couldn’t finish my statement before my head slammed on a hard wall..I fell down in great pain, I could hear some murmurs from the people around…
My head had developed a bump which made my head look like it was going to break..
“Why are you hurting yourself, you are blind not dead, stop all this!!” I heard her voice..
“Where is my dad?..where is my mother?..where is my step mom?..why can’t they make life a little bit farer..
“Let’s go home…” She cooed and tried carrying me up but stopped all of a sudden..
“You are the woman who took her away yesterday night right?” I heard a husky voice shout…
“where is her mother!!!” The scary voice shouted again making me cringe…
I had the cock being corked, before I could ascertain what was happening,
I heard a gunshot and a loud shrill, it was that of the woman who saved me
My eyes widened in horror as I got up frantically..
“Take her with us!!” Another voice ordered and on hearing that, I ran away with them chasing me..
I ran and ran in tears,I was running in the darkest part of the world,
I kept running till I got exhausted, I ran further and hit someone who was on my way..
“Please they wants to kill me..please help..” I asked crying loudly as I clutched tight the person I bumped into..
I don’t know who he was but I just wanted someone to save me and I felt he was the right person…
“Please help me, they are getting closer..” I sulked holding him Kore tightly and closely to my body…
“Presh….” I heard the voice call and my heart hitched, the voice was that of Victor…
“Are you Victor? ” I asked
“Yes, Presh..I’m so sorry..” He sobbed and hugged me more tightly..
The hug sparked up some part of my body with some different sensation which was great I felt peace and joy..
The hug left me smiling again forgetting every single pain I had passed through…
I love this man Victor..
I wouldn’t let him leave again…
I held him tightly feeling like he is my lover,
I can’t see his face but I can feel his body..
I wants him in my life..
“I wouldn’t leave you again..”he purred and I felt his breath closer, before I could know it, he kissed my lips..
