What is wrong with her!why did she run off like that? Daphne asked but I ignored her……

Putting two and two together, I was trying to come up with something…..

Cory’s demeanour clearly shows she was scared of something, but what could that be?

Why was she even scared of my room! Did something happen in here!Or……….. wait a minute! I also found Daphne necklace in this room , is it some of kind of co-incidence! ………

No it can’t be , it really can’t be . I said aloud and Daphne gave me a curious look 

What can’t be! She asked with a furrowed eyebrow but I shook my head negatively 

Nothing. I answered and she scoffed 

Are you trying to hide something from me? She asked fixing her gaze on me

No Daphne ! You know I will never do that , I just don’t want you to get upset 

Upset!and why would I be!she retorted, Just tell me what is going on in your mind.she added 

I stared at her for a while and then sighed 

Fine! I think Cory knows something about your death .i said and she widened her eyes in shock……

 My death! how is that possible! I jumped off the bridge, remember?

 I know Daphne but I have a feeling that there is more to it, can’t you at least try to get something out of your memory. I said staring directly at her face 

She looked up and then shifted her eyes 

 hmmmmh erm…. Cory … erm hmm…she stuttered trying to rack her brain ….

 Do you remember anything? I asked eagerly and she sighed 

 I am sorry Sasha, but my memory is completely frozen …….

Damn! I ruffled my hair in confusion, what am I going to do now! I muttered 

 Why can’t you just ask Declan about it! She suggested 

Declan! I repeated and she nodded 

No, I don’t want to! you saw what happened the last time, I don’t want to bring back painful memories.

Then how do you intend to go about it? She asked with an arched eyebrow and I shrugged 

I don’t know , I really don’t know. I said softly and she huffed 

Can’t you see asking Declan is the only option we have left 

Oh right! but what if he refuses to talk!what if he avoids me instead!what if he stop talking to…….I tried to say but she cut me off ….

he won’t Sasha! I am very sure he would be eager to help…

help! and how sure are you about that? I asked with a straight face and she sighed…..

I think it is time for you to tell him everything……..

 Everything!what are you even saying! Do you want the guy I love to think of me as Crazy!i retorted angrily and she shook her head negatively……

he won’t , I am very sure he would believe you once he sees the golden necklace. She said trying to convince me  and I guessed it kinda worked because I was a bit convinced ……

Fine! but do you think it … I was about to ask when i heard my mum call my name .

 Oh yeah! It time for questioning. I drawled 

Sasha! She called again with a louder voice 

 Yes mum . I answered and then faced Daphne 

Wait here for me. I instructed but she shook her head 

 I am coming with you .

 Fine! I agreed and we both headed downstairs together…..

Getting to the sitting room, I came face to face with my mum angry face…

 What the hell just happened! Why did your friend run off like a mad woman? She half yelled and I bent my head not knowing what to say 

 Talk to me, why did she run off like that!Did she see something scary in your room! She asked rushingly 

 No mum , we had a little argument and she got really pissed off. I lied and my mum scoffed 

 Do I look like a fool!how can you both have an argument within a short period of time! She retorted angrily 

 but erm mum that is the truth. I stuttered and she smirked 

 This is the last time you will  invite a friend over for a sleep over. She threatened 

 But mum it has not. .. I tried to say but she cut me off

 Set the table, dinner will soon be ready. She instructed and then went over to the kitchen….  

I bit my lips in anger, no sleep over again and it is all thanks to Cory …..

Sorry Sasha. Daphne said softly and I nodded without looking at her…..

Absentmindedly, I went over to set the dinner table…

I was lost in thought wondering about the best way to go about this……

 Will Declan believe me if I tell him about Daphne! I guess I need to try …….

Cory Abel

Alighting from the taxi, I paid the driver and then ran all the way to my house….

I was really scared and confused!

Stepping into Sasha’s room brought back the memories of what happened that night….

The cracked in the skull , the blood , the seizures, the tears , the pleas……..I hit my head trying to stop the memories from flowing in but it was of no use as it even became more clearer……

Oh my gawd! What will I do! What will I tell Sasha! What explanation will I give her! I am very sure she would be confused about my behaviour!

On getting home , I pushed the door opened and walked in just in time to hear Racheal call my mother a “low life”

I clenched my  fist in anger because there was nothing more I could do ………

She turned to face me and then scoffed …

 Where are you coming from? She asked with a frown 

I looked at her and then at my mom 

 Mum! Are you alright? I asked and she nodded without looking at me

Did you just ignore me? Racheal asked in a huff 

 No I didn’t! I was just checking on my mom to be sure she was okay . I explained and she laughed loudly 

Oh Cory you are so funny! Why wouldn’t she be okay , do you think I would hurt her ! She asked 

 Yes, you just called her a low life ! I fired at her and she smiled 

 So! Isn’t that what she is! or what were you thinking! do you think being friend with you stop you from being my maid …….

 I didn’t say that Racheal , I am just asking you to  at least give my mum a little respect. I pleaded 

 She stared at me for a while and then smiled lightly 

Fine! So where are you coming from?she asked again ….

I already told you ma’am Racheal, I sent her on an errand. My mom answered and I smiled lightly…..

Then why is she with her back pack? Racheal asked eying me….

 That is because i told her to go with it. My mum said and then faced me 

 Isn’t that right Cory? She asked and I nodded …….

Oh!if that is the case , let go over to your room? Racheal said winking at me and I swallowed hard ………

Alright!

She led the way to my room and I followed behind her slowly…

I knew what she wanted and was really sick and tired of it…..

Getting to my small room , she pushed the door opened and we walked in…..

So are you trying to run away from me? She asked while bolting the door 

 No Racheal, why will I do that! I asked with a trembling voice and she smiled 

 Good girl!

 She moved closer to me and as expected, she held my face  up and gave me a deep kiss……

I closed my eyes as I tried to blink back the tears …….

She broke the kiss and stared at my face…

 Why are you crying! Are you already tired of me? She asked with a sad face and I shook my head negatively 

This is not right Racheal , this is really not right …..

 She laughed, what do you mean! It is not like this is our first time……..:.

I know! But I think it is time to end this, or don’t you love Declan anymore? I asked and she froze

 Don’t you love him again? I repeated 

 Don’t bring Declan into this , Declan is mine and mine alone. She yelled 

 And isn’t that more reason why you need stop doing this. I yelled back and she gave me a thunderous slap

Ouuuarh! I groaned holding my cheeks and she smirked 

 This is to teach you not to talk back at me , you are nothing but the daughter to my maid. She reminded 

Racheal! I called softly 

You  should be grateful I treat you as a friend in school. She added 

I am sorry. I apologised softly  and she smiled mischievously 

 So let us continue with our fun. She said and before I knew it , she pushed me to the bed ….

She took off her clothes and then joined me on the bed …..

I just need a hot romance and nothing more.she said with a seductive smile and I nodded slowly 

Rolling on top her, I took her breast into my mouth and suckled on it ….

 Deeeeclan! She moaned loudly as I continued suckling on it 

 I forcefully inserted two of my fingers into her tight p***y hole and fingered her with all the anger in me……

 Oh my gawd! Declan f**k me harder! f**k me harder! She kept on screaming and I increased my pace and fingered her harder…..

Go down on me ! She grunted in pleasure 

What!! I exclaimed in shock 

 I said you should go down on me ! She repeated 

 But Racheal that is so gross. I queried still fingering her and she rolled her eyes in pleasure 

I can see you don’t want to go to medical school….

 No Racheal! I really want to, you know that is my dream….

 Then do it! She barked and I nodded sheepishly 

 Closing my eyes, I rolled my tongue around her clitoris….

 Yes that is it Declan! She wriggled her body in pleasure as I continued satisfying her………….

*

Sitting on the bed , I watched her wear her clothes….

This must remain a secret between us and in return, i will treat you as a friend when we are in school. She said with a grin 

 Oh yeah! We have so many secrets . I mumbled 

 What did you say? She asked with an arched eyebrow 

 Nothing. I lied 

 Better!

She took a few steps out of the room and then stopped

And one more thing, severe all of your ties with Sasha.she said and I widened my eyes in surprise 

But why! Sasha is my friend! I defended and she smirked 

 And so was Daphne.she reminded and walked out of the room …….

 Daphne! Why must she remind me of Daphne again!

 I shuddered a little bit , if only I had not invited… I paused and broke down in tears…….

 The door  suddenly creaked opened and my mum walked in….

Cory! Are you alright? She asked and I nodded…

She moved closer and sat down beside me….

 Why are you crying! Did Racheal hurt you! She asked in a rush and I shook my head 

I just want freedom mother …..

 I know but why did you return from the sleepover, is it because of Racheal? She asked and I froze …….

 Talk to me Princess, we can move out of here if you want and also….. she tried to say but I cut her off 

 Move! And where would we go too! How are we going to survive! how am I going to achieve my dreams of being a doctor!

Cory! She called softly 

 We are indebted to Racheal”s family …. Apart from gifting us this house , they pay my fees ,they feed us, they clothes us , we can’t just do without them and you know it and that is…. she pulled me into a hug before I could complete what I wanted to say …….

It is going to be alright baby , it is going to be alright…………….

Declan Davies

I woke up the next morning still feeling sleepy and also tired…..

I stretched and sat up on the bed 

Following my morning routine, I opened the drawer to bring out a packet of cigarettes but could not find any …..

how is this possible! I had more then 5 packets in here !

I bend over to look underneath the bed and my pot starch was also missing….

Damn! Is this what my mum meant by helping me!

Dragging myself up from the bed , i went over to the bathroom to freshen up….

 Returning to the room, I went over to the wardrobe and searched through it…..

I soon settled for a blue jean with a black shirt and hurriedly dressed up in it  

 I pulled a black boot from the shoe rack and wore it ….

 Picking my backpack from the table, I sling it across my shoulders and was about leaving the room when the golden chain laying on the table caught my attention….

 I picked it up and stared at it , it was still the same……….

 Wearing it around my neck , I hid it underneath my shirt and then headed downstairs to the sitting room……

 Getting to the sitting room, I met my mom setting the table for breakfast

 Good morning mum! I greeted

 Morning baby! How was your night? She asked without looking at me

 It was fine, did you remove anything from my room? I asked and she turned her head sideways to look at me …..

 I did , do you have a problem with that? She asked with a frown 

 Nope. I answered popping the p and she smiled 

 Good! If that is the case , sit and let’s have breakfast….

No mom , I will pass! I drawled and she furrowed her eye brow 

But why! Are you sulking because of the stuffs I removed from your room. She retorted 

No mom . I lied 

 Better! because if I should see any of those stuff in your room again , you will be grounded for a month. She threatened 

 What! A month! I repeated in surprise and she nodded 

It seems like someone is trying to be a tough mum. I mumbled 

 What did you say? She asked with a frown 

 I said see you later Mum. I lied and she chuckled softly……

 I was about leaving the house when she called me

I turned to look at her

 What is it mum? I asked and  she smiled 

 You are now a big boy! She remarked and i knot my eyebrows

 So?

 She picked up a key from the dinner table and threw it to me

 I caught it and stared at it , it was the key to her car…

What should I do with it? I asked confusedly

 It is yours now. She answered with a smile and I widened my eyes in surprise 

 Really mum! I asked to be sure and she nodded 

 Wow! Thanks so much . I blew her a kiss and ran out excitedly…..

I was expecting to see a dusty car but was surprised when I saw a clean red car….

When did she do this! My mum is really amazing!

 Opening the car door, I got into the driver seat and  then closed the door

 I inserted the key in the ignition, started the ignition and the engine started 

 Wow! Wow! Wow! I exclaimed excitedly… I mean I have always had eyes for my mum car and now it belongs to me ……..

Controlling the steering wheel, I drove off heading to school ………

* 

*

On getting to school , I drove into the compound and parked in the parking lot ….

I alighted from the car and was about walking into the building when I heard a familiar voice call me… 

I looked in the direction of the voice and saw Racheal running towards me…..

I smirked 

What does she want this time around?

Hi Declan! She greeted first with a smile

 hi! I responded…

 I saw you alight from the red car over there , is it yours? She asked and I nodded slowly 

 Oh! I was just curious because you use to come to school in a black car. She said still smiling and I scoffed 

The black car belongs to my dad and you should know it was badly damaged in the accident that killed him. I reminded 

 Oh! She exclaimed softly 

 So is this the reason why you stopped me ! to ask me about a black car . I retorted in a huff 

 No, I wanted to ask if we can meet in the empty classroom during recess. She said with a grin and I shook my head…..

 That won’t be possible Racheal!

 But why! Is it because of Sasha? She asked and I smiled 

Something like that .i answered and she clutched her fist tightly….

 Do you like her? She probed on and I smirked 

 I don’t like her , I love her . I corrected 

No! It is not possible! What of me! You love me also right? She asked with a wavering voice and I sighed 

 Please Racheal don’t be hard on yourself . I said and walked past her to the class……

Declan! Declan! Declan! I heard her called but I ignored her……

*

*

Entering the class, I looked towards Sasha seat but only saw her backpack 

Where could she be?

 I looked around the class and smiled when I saw her at the far back talking to Cory ….

I walked up to them and got there just in time to hear her ask Cory about a room….

Room! What room! I wondered and waved it off when she turned back to look at me….

Declan! She called excitedly, then jumped up and hugged me….

I chuckled softly, is she for real!

 how are you! I greeted 

 I am fine. She answered and disengaged from the hug

But how did you know I was behind you , you both were so engrossed with whatever you were saying to notice me …….

I em kind of know erm you were there. She stuttered and I smirked 

I shifted my gaze to Cory and smiled lightly 

 hi Cory! I greeted and she widened her eyes in surprise 

Omooo! Are you really talking to me ? She asked with a surprised look and I smiled lightly 

So what were you both talking about? I asked and I saw Cory go stiff

 We weren’t talking, I was the one doing all the talking. Sasha corrected 

And what do you mean by that? I saw both of you talking…..

No, Cory refused to talk to me , she even changed her seat . She queried 

 And why would she do that! I retorted  and she shrugged 

 You can ask her yourself ……..

I shifted my gaze to Cory and she looked away 

What is wrong with her? I wondered 

 Declan! Sasha called softly and I shifted my gaze back to her 

 There is something I need to tell you . She informed 

 And what is that? I asked with an arched eyebrow 

 Come with me . She said and held my hands as she led me out of the class……

But where are we going? I asked while freeing my hands from her grip …..

 To the empty classroom upstairs. She answered 

 But why!is it so important! Can’t it wait till after class! I queried and she shook her head 

 No..

 Fine! I agreed….lead the way , I will follow behind you …..

 *

 Climbing the stairs , I followed behind her as we walked through the long passage 

Jeez! her big ass bounced like a ball as she walked and I was lost staring at it ….

Can any girl be this perfect!

 *

 Entering the class, I stopped to admire her as she walked over to a bench at the back of the class…..

 She sat down on it and then looked towards my direction….

 What is wrong with you! Why did you just stand there ? She asked and I smirked 

 I was lost staring at your ass. I blurted out without knowing and she froze…..

 What did you just say? She asked and I smacked my lips….

What is wrong with you Declan? I thought within  and then moved closer to her…..

Are you interested in me because of my ass? She asked again and I sighed 

 Will you believe me if I tell you the truth?

 No Declan I don’t want to hear… I shut her up with a kiss

 She went stiff for a moment and then kissed me hard and deep …

I widened my eyes in surprise, I never imagined her to be a good kisser!

 I broke the kiss and smiled 

 Are you ready to hear me out now? I asked and she nodded sheepishly…..

 Firstly, I liked you because of your beauty and you know … your ass  then  everything changed . I fell hard for you without knowing the reason why , I love you because of who you are and believe me when I say  I want to be with you …

Oh my gawd! Are you real Declan? She asked to be sure and then turned her head sideways 

 Did you hear that Daphne! he said he loves me ….

I widened my eyes in shock 

Daphne! I muttered and she shifted her gaze back to me…

 Are you crazy! Who are you talking to? I asked in a huff  and she exhaled deeply 

It is Daphne! She answered and I took a few step backward

You must be crazy! I retorted angrily 

 No! I am damn serious, Daphne is beside me , she can see you , she can hear you ……

 Stop it! I yelled, don’t ever talk about daphne again . I warned ….

I know it is hard to believe, but Daphne is beside me! She insisted and then turned sideways again

 Daphne please say something, don’t let him think I am crazy. She pleaded with a trembling voice 

I stared gobsmacked at her as she talked to herself with so much seriousness……

Is she kidding me!

Oh the necklace!She said and her eyes lit up …. 

What necklace!I wondered 

 She loosened up the collar button of her shirt and brought out a chain….wait a minute! Is that not Daphne necklace?

Take a good look at it , do you recognise it ? She asked staring at my face ….

 I moved closer to her and touched the necklace, it was truly Daphne necklace…….

Where did you get this from? I asked with a trembling voice ..

I found it in my room . She answered and I scoffed 

And do you expect me to believe that , take it off now. I yelled but she shook her head 

It can’t come off , it is kinda stuck on my neck .she said and I laughed loudly 

Is this some kind of movie! Why won’t a f****ng chain come off! I retorted 

 Then you can try it out yourself. She fired at me….

 Fine! I agreed 

 I tried to remove the necklace but like she said,it was stuck……

I shifted back in disbelief …

Are you a sorceress? I fired at her but she ignored me and turned to look sideways for the third time ……

 Daphne please you need to remember something, you really need to . She said with a wavering voice , I could tell she was about to cry ….

 I scoffed

 This is bull sh*t! I remarked and turned to go when she said 

Guapo!

 I stopped and tilted my head a little to be sure I heard right….

 Guapo! She repeated again and I turned back to face her ……

What did you just say ! I mean how did you get to know that name! I asked in surprise 

 Daphne told me that, she does not know the meaning but she said the name just popped up in her head. She explained and I ran my hands through my hair 

 I was so damn confused!

 Guapo is a Spanish word meaning “handsome” and only Daphne calls me that  …but how is it possible for her to be here!

 And as if reading my mind, Sasha said 

 Daphne is here and she said she loves you ……:..:
