I lifted up my head to let the liquid stayed in my eyelids. I turned back to him as he stared at me curiously. I looked down to the floor than back to him.
"Yes. I am listening."
"I – I was never –"
"Children, Brayd! Ai!" Brad's mum distracted with her call on us. "Come down and eat. I prepared something."
"We should go to your mum now." I said as I stretched my thumb to the door.
"No! I want you to talk to me first. Is it about what happened to you or there is more to it?" He held up my chin, made sure his eyes was directly into mine.
"Will you still love a liar like me?" The tears flipped down my eyes unknowingly.
"Ai, you are scaring me right now. Liar? How?" He quickly pulled me into a hug, and rubbed down my hair.
"I was never raped Brad. It all lies. He never dig the strange thing in, but he never stops – stops scratc
A I's P O V."Do you wanna talk to me about your father?" I looked back to his eyes which suddenly filled with sour. "If you wanna forget your whole past then you have to let it out.""You are right Ai, but I don't even know what to talk to you about than to let you know the wicked of a father I have.""His action could be of the past. Why don't you just make a good relationship with him and forget it ever happened."The journey was a silent one with little breeze hovering the little dirt around."I wish I could but he is not even ready to accept his past mistakes. He never sees it as one. My mum still have yo beg my father for love. I just want him gone forever.""Why would you say such?""I am already used to living without him before he came around to add more salt to the wound. I wouldn't have allowed him back in our li
"What is Victor doing here Ai? Arnold? I mean, how did you came across him?""By chance mum. Please move forward." I demonstrated with my hand like he knew not what that meant.Brad moved forward with his dad reluctantly."After everything he did to our family. I almost lost Arnold because of his wicked act. I almost lost my own life. You wouldn't have been here if not for God Ai because both of us would have been dead by now all because of him. So what is he doing here? Why are you here?" Mum raised her voice higher at him."I am aware everything I did in the past could cost your life and I still kept doing it out of my own selfish motives even after I had a son already." He said lowly.I never knew the cold hearted man I met yesterday could be pitiful."What! You had a son during those times?""Yes, I impregnated a lady during my NYSC. I told her to go abort th
"Ai!""Yes, yes mum!""You realized your phone is ringing right?"I looked up at dad to meet his gaze on me."Go pick up in your room if you are uncomfortable picking up in our present." Dad uttered."No dad! I am just – I am –" I stuttered.That wasn't a good thing!"Go on and come back." It sounded like a command and I just have to obey that."Ok!" I got to my room to switched off my phone. I threw it on the bed in anger and paced around my room.He should have just stop calling, why does he had to call continuously. Just be positive Ai. Dad will trust you. What if he didn't?I got back to the living room and acted like nothing was wrong. I could feel his gaze on me, but I fixed my eyes on the T .V show even though I wasn't fully concentrating."You
"Woahhhhhhh! Babyyyyy!" Akila screamed as I walked inside the club house dazzling with different kind of disco colours to make sure her voice was heard through the music playing loudly."Yeahhhh!" I scurried down to her in my black heels, clad in a nude gown that exposed half of my lap. I threw my hands up as we both dance playfully to the music."I miss you so much baby."We both cackled then I tug my hair dangling on my cheeks to my ear."I miss you too."A welcome party was organized for the SS3 students' one month after the completion of our mock exam, looking forward to writing WAEC.Everyone dancing away their sorrows in their different kind of sexy dress. I was never used to dressing girlish, but I have to this night, to look different at least and mum actually complimented that."Look who we have here. Thought you are never coming." Daniel showed u
