Her past was like a sunny afternoon with butterflies dancing in glee but same couldn’t be said anymore.
Crouched under the table,she remained silent,waiting for him. As soon as she heard the crack of the door knob,she adjusted herself to stagnancy and determination. The dark office,as dark as her heart. The little bulb beside her flickered. The door pulled open and she watched the shadow draw closer. It was now two hearts in one fate. Either ways,regret shall sour.
The undenied trust shattered in the blink of an eye. The fantastical image of a happy ever after dried away like deaths cologne. Tales under the moonlight will now be murder under the moonlight.
She looked outside the window to see the stars but his image was viewed instead as she watched him blow out his smoke.
Anger stifled within her as she grasped for air, an asthmatic patient but yet a courageous killer.
The bitter taste of betrayal, the sweet taste of love, the hazy waves of happiness, the imminent gloomy danger.
“How is my baby girl doing?…i will be back home baby,cant wait to carry her” she heard him answer his call before she wiped her tears.
How wicked she felt at that moment. A devil, she thought.
A picture of him and his little family dropped beside her. The bright eyes of his 1yr old daughter was similar to his wife’s and her little infant hair was like his.
Years back,she had pictured this as her family photo to be hung on the wall while they both smiled at the baby but what a boomerang of sadness,just like how her father had left her mum in the past to settle for a “much better” lady,leaving her striving in poverty.
But then, a young man with blue sparkling eyes lit up her world,promising her a lovely future. Early hours of their days,they worked on their future,building their empire,promising to be with each other no matter what but now that man is who she will be pointing a gun at in some minutes time.
An ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure, she would not have taking lightly. Rather than giving all she had in the relationship,she should have made some reservations.
“One day,we would both own our company and paste our family picture on the wall. I will buy you a glittering diamond ring. I love you” this words, he had spoken but she was sure he wouldn’t remember. This words he had promised, he had fulfilled but as she stared at the family picture, she couldn’t see herself but rather a grey eyes young girl of about 18yrs smiling so wide.
Only of she knew she was smiling on her husband’s failed promises to another woman, she wouldn’t be so happy.
As she stared at the picture, tears rolled down her eyes and she finally wiped it off and pulled a gun out. “He shouldn’t have left me after 12yrs of our relationship. After all i did…” she whispered and she heard him say “anybody there?”.
She wished she could pull the trigger after telling him how cruel he was to give her 50million dollars for being a partner to the development of the business and sending her off to Paris to begin a new life after so many years of struggles and being together. All she wanted….was him. Not the money nor a new life but there he was feeling accomplished with his wife and child.
“Hey!…pull the trigger” she heard. She jumped in surprise and shock. “Pull it already!” He screamed once more and knelt before her. “I really cant look at you, i have no words left to say but I’m sorry,don’t forgive me” he cried at her feet and she let out a loud cry. She knew quit well that her body won’t listen to a single message from her to kill him once he cried.
“I hate you!”she screamed. Her heart was nothing less than gold and that, he knew about. A pure reason why he was confident to tell her to pull it. Just like before, he was taking advantage of her again and she cursed herself. She positioned and pointed the gun at him but rather than bullets,tears flowed as she imagined his little baby girl being fatherless just like her. She knew what it felt like growing up without a father and she would see no such thing happen to another child, at least not through her.
She placed the gun down slowly and moved out of the office. She could hear him crying bitterly. Her mouth was dry,her lips were pilling, she touched her dress and behold was her bloody stained dress. Her knees felt weak,she dropped on them. She looked back at him. He was holding her gun which she had dropped. A blurry image of him wailing and she stared at him with bloody eyes as tears rolled down her cheeks. Till the last minute, she was betrayed and bitter and then she heard him say “i know you will still come back to haunt me,I’m very scared. Please forgive me”
She forced a sarcastic smile with her bloody teeth and said “till the end,you….you….betray…..
Her statement was not complete but as she saw the blurry view of a doctor after some hours,she could tell she would complete her words. Now, she is no gold heart. SHE IS A SCARLET HEART.
Hey guys!…missed you guys. I’M HAVING EXAMS AND I’M REALLY STRESSED. ANY IDEA OF HOW TO READ SMARTLY?
