He backed away slowly..and surprisingly left..God, it would have been so much better if he had shouted, bicker, or at least say something..
“Don’t touch me..please just go”
I couldn’t believe I said that to David..but it was his fault Jeremy caught us..I earlier warned that someone could see us but he wouldn’t listen..he left as well, without saying a word..I stood there for a long time, do you know that moment when you don’t even know what to think first..was I too harsh on David? Why did Jeremy walk away without saying anything? What was he thinking? Would he tell madam Clara? Or Joanne??
You can imagine the struggle..I was not at peace..
I made a decision to stay with madam Clara and avoid both of them, I packed my stuffs and started towards madam Clara’s flat, only for me to meet Joanne on my way..when I saw her approaching it felt like my heart jumped out of my chest and ran for its dear life..has Jeremy told her already? A sudden rush of guilt filled me..I had been smooching another woman’s property..
She hurried to hug me, I couldn’t hug her back because my hands were occupied with my bags..
I nervously answered, still trying to figure out if she was just acting or she wasn’t aware yet..
“Where have you been? I have been searching all over for you?”
I was trying really hard to control my stupid emotions that were trying so hard to betray me..
“I have been around”
She hugged me again..
“ah,which kind sudden friendship be dis one nah” I thought..and kept forcing that smile..
“I need your help with this guy that’s always been disturbing me o..I don’t want David to find out”
I couldn’t bear another moment standing with her, the guilt I felt was consuming me..I just gave a flaunting excuse and promised to see her later to have the ladies gist..
I got to madam Clara’s flat and got a room for myself, before I went to her room..she didn’t look like she was breathing.. My heart missed..
She opened her eyes..oh what a relief..
He came from behind me..I froze..
I was trying hard so madam Clara wouldn’t sense something was up
He took me aside..
“It’s OK dear..David explained everything?”
“What did he say?”
I had to ask..
“Well he said you were both drunk and there is no way he would leave Joanne for you..they are getting married next month”
I couldnt still believe what I heard..my heart was ripped into two..David has broken me..
