💞💞(Twist of fate)💞💞
By. Humble Smith & Clara William
I broke the kiss and pressed her to my body..
My heart was heavy and I felt like I would break down, her body was filled with dirt and she was breathing so heavy that I thought she would faint..
Her head was resting on my chest as I stood still stroking her hair..
There were blood dropping from many part of her body and that is really shredding my heart…
“Who was after you?” I asked slowly sniffing my tears
“Can’t you see them?.. They may have ran away after seeing me with you, they wants to take me away, they killed the woman who helped me..” She muffled..
“Let’s go..” I spoke out and carried her in a bridal way heading straight to my house..
It is over, her pain has to stop once and for all, but where is her mother?
“Where is your mother?” I asked and her sad face deepen..
“She is nowhere to be found..” She replied making my eyes widen in shock..
“What??..she left you..or was she kidnapped??..”
“I can’t tell, she left and couldn’t come back..” Her voice cracked with more tears..
I couldn’t tell how I am feeling now, my legs are weak and I feels my whole
The pain she must be passing through isn’t something to write about.. A poor blind girl left alone..I don’t know what to do except taking her to my house, yes..I’ll personally take care of her…
Finally I got home and put a call to my personal doctor who came immediately…
Presh was laid on my bed as the doctor treats her wounds..I sat glumly on a stool gazing at the poor soul wondering what her crime was..
She doesn’t look like someone wicked, why would a thing like this befall her..I am sadden, I want her to see me..
I want a stop to her blindness and I will equally spend my last dime to make her see..
Anna wasn’t at home and I can’t just wait for her to return so she would see how much pain this blind girl is passing through..
She may hate poor or blind people but I’m sure the condition of presh would move her to love and care for her..
“Victor!!” I heard my name making me raise my head sharply..
It was from presh, she has been unconscious after the treatment and now finally she is awake..
“Presh..how do you feel..?” I asked with a wet eyes as I took her hand into mine softly..
“Where I’m I?” She asked and I swallowed hard seeing her tears, seeing her weakness..
She looks so stunning but anguish had made her look rough..
“You are at my house.. I brought you here, please keep calm, you must still be weak..” I cooed
“Yes dear.. I can’t leave you away from me any longer..” I pressed her hand softly making her smile again..more wider..
It later vanished,
“Where is my mother?” She suddenly asked and I breathed..
“I’ll find her for you, as a pri…” I paused not wanting her to hear I was a prince..
“You are the Prince, I already know..please just find my mother..” She sulked
“I’ll do all I can, she must be found..don’t get too fretful, trust me..but..Wow, you know I am a Prince??..it is my little secret, I wonder how you know, let me get you something to eat..” I smiled and she nodded and fondled my cheek which was where her hand touched as she moved it to my direction..i giggled and rushed out..
I got into the house with a wide smile, I need to spend my time with Victor,
Since he came here, we haven’t had a great time together, it seem the blind girl is shattering everything..
I was very glad when he said he would be coming here for us to spend some time together before we both returned back to the city..but it looks like it isn’t happening..
Presh is stealing his attention making him lost in thought..I really regret the day they met..
“Victor!!” I called holding the present I just bought carefully..
Yeah, I bought it for him, we have to start enjoying our self, we are dating and would get married soon…
You can’t tell how happy I am, Victor would not be able to see presh again, she had been taken away by the men sent..
I just want her very far away from him, if they should be together, then everything I had kept as a secret for long would be exposed..
Presh is a threat and the fact that she is blind is the reason why what I dreaded hasn’t happen..
If she sees Victor one day, then I’m doomed, no one would understand this..
I need to tread carefully, presh shouldn’t die but should never come near Victor…
“You are back!” I heard victor’s voice as he walked out of the kitchen..
I arched my brow staring at his hand..
“Are you eating without me?” I asked and he smiled and shook his head..
“It is for someone..” He said happily..
I could see it clear in his eyes, he was so happy..
“You seem to be very happy, who caused that and who are you giving that food to??” I asked not understanding the whole thing..
“There is no need saying it out, let’s go and meet her” he squeaked and grabbed my hand as he led me upstairs..
I wonder who this person is??
He took me to the guest room and closed the door,
Someone was lying on the bed, it was a lady and she seem sick..
“Who is she?” I asked walking closer..
He dropped the tray and also walked to the bed..
The girl was facing the other side so I can’t see her face..
“Presh!!!” Victor called out and for some moment I couldn’t move..
What did I just hear??
I was still doubting if I heard him well when the lady turned to our side and there I saw her clearly..
Presh was lying there on the bed comfortably..
My heart stopped working for some second as I found my whole body trembled..
I’m I dreaming?
Someone should please wake me up, I can’t believe my eyes..it can’t be real..never!!!
“Pretty angel, your food is here, you got to eat before cleaning up, you must be very hungry..” Victor cooed as he helped her up..
I was standing there totally dumbfounded..
What is happening?
Is presh two?
Does she has a twin who is identical??
This can’t be her??
“Hey Anna, can you see how much she needs help, she had really passed through a lot..” Victor said to me
“What is she doing here?” I breathed finding it hard to even talk..
“She is living with us, I don’t want her to suffer again, people are after her life, I’ll help her to even get her sight..” He added and my eyes widened..
I felt totally confused..
What is he saying?
I wasn’t talking so he gave me a stare, I could see how he squint his eyes all over me trying to read expression..
“I need to rest..” I sighed and threw the present I bought to him with anger..
This is unbelievable…
Presh would be living here with me..
He wants to make her regain her sight..
What is all this?
Does it means my end is near?
Does it means my secret is slowly coming out?
I can’t let it happen..
My one wish is for presh to die a natural death, that had been while I subjected her to emotional pain but she was strong..
I can’t kill her with my hand..nobody can even kill her with their hand, she has the force of life around her, the only thing that can kill her is pain from the heart..
Suffering from people that she relent on to save her..
Maltreatment from her loved ones..
All this is what could take life away from her and I had been actually succeeding, it was close, but right now everything has be destroyed..
Victor is making her happy..
I don’t know what to do..
I just have to call her and tell her about this..
I rushed into an empty room and shut the door before putting a call across..
“Presh was saved by Victor and right now she is living here with us..” I said immediately she picked the call..
“What??..gosh!!.. Well, she would leave that house very soon” she said and I arched my brow confusedly..
“What would you do?..how would she leave, I guess she is liking Victor so much..” I said frantically..
“I have her mother here with me..she would leave that house at my order or would have her mother dead…” She stated and I felt relieved..
Immediately she leaves, I’ll send much of my men to take her far away from here, very far…
She can’t come and ruin everything..
I walked back into the room and the sight of presh lying on the bed made me so much angry..
“Victor what actually is she doing here?” I asked and he stared at me
“Can’t you see her pain?..she is alone right now, no one wants to help her, she is dying slowly, she has been through a lot…can’t you see it?..why asking what she is doing here?” He questioned and I could see passion in his eyes..
He was really having so much compassion for the girl who i hated so much..
“I guess you know how much I hate blind and wretched girls like her, can’t you see she is a curse, look at her clearly..” I seethed
“Can you leave this room for now..” He sighed and I sneered at him..
“Are you telling me to leave?..” I questioned and he growled and stood up..
“If you spit out any hurtful word to her here and now, I’ll beat the hell out of you, i promise!!..” He yelled leaving me stunned..
I can’t believe my boyfriend shouted at me just because of this thing…oh gosh!!!!
I looked at presh face and saw streak of tears on her cheek…
Her eyes was closed, she had fallen asleep and I can’t still leave her side, I just feel like I should always stay beside her…
“Victor i don’t understand you anymore??” Anna said making me pissed up…
What is even wrong with this girl??
I am feeling like beating her but I had to hold myself, she is my girlfriend…
“I myself doesn’t understand you, I don’t understand how a young lady like you would be so heartless that you aren’t moved by her pains and anguish…I hate people who has an evil heart..” I spited forgetting she is my girlfriend that moment…
“I see, you hate me and likes her…gosh!!” She scoffed and left..
I sighed and turned to press only to see she was wide awake..
“You are awake?” I asked but got no reply except the tears that ran down her cheeks..
“So right here, there is someone who hates me too..why??” She sulked making me feel pained..
“I’m sorry..don’t worry, I’ll make her understand..” I muffled and took a deep breath..
“Do you know that I will bring trouble on you with my stay here?” She sulked
“stop saying that, stop thinking you are a curse, you are more better than many of the girls out there..” I poured out as I fondled her palm into mine..
“Who is that girl?” She asked and I knew she was referring to Anna..
“She is my…” My voice hitched as I stared at her pretty face, the word girlfriend couldn’t come out..
All of a sudden, I don’t want to tell her she is my girlfriend, I don’t want her to know I have a girlfriend..
“She is my sister!” I lied and she sighed..
“She seems to hate me so much!” She sobbed
“I’ll make her start liking you, she is fond of disliking poor people, but I’ll make her understand..okay?” I cooed and she smiled
“Can I ever see you before I die?” She suddenly asked making my heart skip beat..
“Ugh??.. I don’t get you??”
“Do you know I may not be able to see you before something happens to me..yes my life is in danger, they must have gotten my mother, I’m next..my life isn’t safe, I may be killed very soon” she cried
“Stop saying all this painful words, it is making me emotional, no on would take you away from me, I may not be your boyfriend but I care so much about you, I feel pain seeing you in this condition…”
“I’m not afraid to die, I’m not sad to die but I wouldn’t want to die with seeing your face, you are the man that had touched the inner part of my heart, I think I’m falling deeply for you even when I am not supposed to…I want to just see your face..” She sobbed raising her hands up..
I took it and placed it on my cheeks..
“I’ll do everything I can to make you see, I am sure the doctors in town can get your eyes healed, you are following me back to the state..”. He said and I felt my whole body shudder In joy
” do you mean I can still see?” I asked I’m amazement..
“Yes my love” I heard him say
“Did you call me my love?” I asked in surprised
“Yes that’s what you are, I am liking you so much even when you can’t see me” he said and I sat up..
“We are both in two different world, I’m a poor blind girl and you are the Prince… I am in no way like you, the king would even order that I be killed if he should hear that I am with you..”
“Please just trust me that you will be safe provided that I’m with you..” He purred and pecked my cheek making me blush..
“I love that!..” I whispered with a smile..
“Let me go get some cloths for you, here is now your new home!” He said making me smile widely..
I held his palm and placed it on my chest..
“..this may sound awkward but it is true, I love you like my breath, I want to say this continuously into your ear because it is true..” I poured out emotionally..
“I also love you..” He whispered and kissed my lips this time sending a strange sensation down my spine
He stood up and head out..
I was very happy but as I heard the door of the room open and close..my heart became cold..
He is out??.. Would he come back again??
Where is my mother????
Did she leave me all alone or was she in trouble??
I don’t know, I lay there on the bed praying he should come back quickly, I needs him so my heart would be at rest, he is the only one I trust..
The door of the room cracked open and a sweet smile escaped my lips..
He is back!..
“You are back dear..” I said and sat up..
I was waiting to hear his voice but heard none..
“Victor is that you??..what…” A resounding slap held my voice in the air..
The slap was so painful that I felt the it all over my body…
“What are you doing here??” I heard a female voice say to me followed by a push that led me out of the bed allowing me hit my head on the tiled floor..
I let out a shrill of pain but the lady wasn’t even listening to my pain..
She seem to be so much enraged…
“Presh just die..die and be forgotten!!!!” She screamed kicking me hardly…
“What did I do??” I gasped in pain..
“What are you doing with Victor?.. Are you trying to repeat history?..why would you even meet him?..you can’t ruin all my plan now that it is close to complete..I just hate seeing you..leave!!!” She hit my head with what i can’t tell, all I know was that I felt a sharp pain all over me…
“Please stop…”i cried in agony.
“When Victor comes, tell him you want to leave here and return home..listen..” She said and placed something into my ear..
What I heard left me taken aback…
I could hear the cry of my mother as she was beaten, I could feel it that she was through a lot..
But why must she suffer because of me??
“She would die of you spend a night here..make sure you leave here today or else you would be the cause of the death of your mother…” Her voice echoed in my ear leaving nothing but sadness in me…
I regret the day I was born…
I’m nothing but a real curse, that is why I bring nothing good into the life of people who showed me love…
A woman was shot to death because she helped me, my mother had been in agony and pain all through her life all because of me..
This has to stop..
There are more reason to die than to live…
“Can you help me take my life?” I asked the lady who had been doing all that…
“I can’t, you can kill your self..” She chuckled and gave me a knife before leaving as she heard the hooting of car, I guess it’s Victor…
I held the knife which I had longed to get hold of, I raised it up to pierce my stomach but as it gave me a deep cut, I quickly flung it away as a great pain swept my whole body…
I screamed as the pain became unbearable..
Presh!!!..” His voice came in but it was like a far away sound..
I was blacking out..pain from my body and from my heart was making me die
I was dying out of these pain..anytime I recall the shrill of my mom, the pain increases..
Recalling that a woman lose her life because of me made my heart bled..
I felt Victor carry me into his arm as he groan my name, there isn’t any doubt he wants me alive but I don’t worth it….
I went dizzy and weak, blood had soaked my cloths…pain had enveloped my whole body..
He was rushing me to the hospital but I was sure of not staying alive till then..
He placed me into the car and zoomed off..
There was no guard to help him..
No guard answered his call when he ordered, they must have been sent far away by someone which must be that lady I don’t even know..
“Victor allow me to die!!” I squealed in pain and anguish…
He held my palm with one of palm softly..
I could hear him sniff shiwjng he was crying..
“If you die, I will be incomplete forever!!!!!” His emotional voice resounded in my ear.
What does he mean?
I don’t actually understand, but his word made me feel the urge to live..
I need to see the end of all this..
To be continued
Why’s Anna bend on destroying Presh 😒
