'Come on, George, we have been through this already. You know that I am not sure I'll be able to love you without having doubts. I was hurt and heartbroken to pieces by someone that I trusted than own self. Let alone you. We have only known each other for almost a year now. We are good friends, and I wish I could be more than that, but I am really not ready." Steph said, holding George's hands tightly. Though she tried to not show her feelings for George. She liked him but was scared he would leave her when he met someone from his own class.
"I understand what you went through, but I promise you that I will not hurt you at any point. All I want is to love you with all my heart and be there for you every step of the way in your life Steph. You make me feel like no other has done before. I dream of you each time you touch my hand or shoulders. I want more than just the touch. Am really crazy about you, Steph. Please give me a chance to be with you."
"It's not like I don't want you; it is just that I am scared. Scared that you will also leave me when you meet someone from your own class. I like you, yes, but I don't want to be heartbroken. So before it gets there, I prefer not to try. I hate the pain the hearts have, the feeling of ending one's life or doing something extremely stupid. Please give me time. "
Upon hearing that Steph liked him as well, he was so happy and hoped that things would probably work between them.
"Thank you. Take all the time in the world, dear. But you have to know that I love you with all my heart, and I would never do anything to hurt you at any cost." George says as he leans to hug her. The rest of the day was so great that they just spent at the office talking about so many different things about life, themselves, and their families.
It was around six when they got away from the office. As they walked away, Steph felt like she was being watched by someone looking in that direction; she saw one female staff looking at her wickedly. She turned and asked George who she was and said he had dated for a while but broke up.
It was really going to be challenging to deal with the ladies around George.
George dropped her off at her place before getting ready for their dinner plans, then he will have to come back and fetch her.
On his way home, he was just happy to think maybe she would accept him as her beloved and love him completely without any restrictions. He doesn't want to force her on to anything, but he does not have that long either to wait, but if it means he has to wait for her, then he will gladly do.
Going into his apartment, he showered and dressed, then he went to wait for Steph before going out on their date. As he waited at his car, the door to the apartment opened, and out walked the lady of the hour. She was so beautiful. He couldn't hold it anymore; he just stood there looking in a gaze as she walked towards him. She cleared her throat for him to realize he was looking too much.
He moved closer to her and leaned forward, and kissed her. She did not respond first, but she allowed him to do it again, and this time, she responded passionately.
"Hey, sorry for that, Steph, I couldn't hold it anymore. You are so beautiful."
"Let's go now. It's getting cold out here," Steph said as she walked ahead before the door was opened for her. He then walked to the driver's side and drove off.
They walked into the Haltom Hotel and went straight to their reserved table at the end of a corner where they could have the privacy they needed.
They talked about everything they could about their life. Steph took a step further and explained everything about how her dad doubted her and slandered her without listening and believing her side of the story. She is thinking of moving to an apartment of her own and living with her sister without interference with an overbearing family, and how she wants to open her own web designing and advertising company. She even explained about her boyfriend, whom she found sleeping with her sister in their home.
"It's pretty embarrassing to talk about it. But I guess when I speak about it, I might get over it with time.
His name is Sam, and we have been friends since we were kids. When we got to high school, we became even closer, and before I knew it, we were together as a couple. We dated for like four years. When my Mum died, he was there for me, but I don't know what happened. He started to change after I introduced him to my sister Sheila. We were so close when they moved in with us, and I was happy to have someone apart from my sister Mercy to talk to. Things changed one day when I came back early home and saw Sam's motorbike outside and could not find him anywhere in the house, including my room. When I called his number, it rang in my sister's room, which is not far from mine. I walked to the room and could not help but hear them moaning in the room. I was so confused and pained I couldn't hold it anymore and budged in the room and found him on top of her, thrusting into her like a hungry lion.
I asked what was happening when he moved away from her and covered himself confused on somehow confused and how to explain himself. I left the room, went to my room, climbed my bed, and cried my eyes out.
I heard a knock at my door and dint even respond when he came in to explain himself. I could not even look at him; I kicked him out of my room and told him never to see him before me again. That was the last time I saw him. Though he has tried so many times to be in touch, he has not been paying attention to him.
My sister tried to explain that it was him that forced her to do it, but I could not believe her. Tell me one thing, could someone force you to sleep with them in your home and worse, in your bedroom?
That's what I thought, and my thinking was maybe she seduced him to do it. In fact, he sent me a text to explain what happened that day, but I just erased it and blocked his contacts.
Now, do you understand why I don't want to have another heartbreak? What I felt at that time was something I don't wish to repeat again."
"Wow. That is quite a story. Steph, I know that you are still hurt by what that jerk did to you, but I promise not to put you on the same experience. I love you with all of my heart and would like to spend the rest of my days with you. This I know for sure that it is you that I love. I know you might feel uncomfortable being with me and having so many rivals since they all throw themselves at me, but I want you to know that I love you. I have never felt this way before with anyone, not even my former girlfriend.
Please give me a chance to love you, dear." They were interrupted when the food they ordered arrived. The waiter served them and left to attend to the other table.
"I like you too, George. I have been feeling this way for long but am just afraid."
"Then let's give this relationship a chance."
'Promise me that you will not hurt me, George; I want to be with you too because I can't stand staying away from you. Each time am near you, I feel so fulfilled, and when you are not with me, I feel like something is missing, and it's not a good feeling at all. Sometimes I just want to be with me all the time."
"Oh, Steph, thank you. Thank you for giving me this chance, and I promise you do not regret it for the rest of your life.' George said, and he stood from his chair and hugged tightly before kissing her passionately. He didn't care about all those stares from the people around them as he shouted that he loved her.
After they were done with their meal, he took her to a private place and celebrated their coming together as a couple.
Dating has never been as enjoyable as it was to Steph. It feels good to have a boyfriend who cares and takes care of you. The next few weeks has been amazing working in George’s company. Though they have known it each other over a year and few months the feeling George has towards her has always been pure and true. She has given her all to the relationship. They say good things don’t last long and that’s what caught up to them. One day while on a date with George, a pretty woman walks up to them and looks surprised to see them. “Hey George” The look on Georges face could earn you a million if you sold to the public. He was surprised and kind of shocked. “Hey Sharon” “How are you? I wasn’t sure if it was you or not. It has been like forever since I last saw you. Have just moved back into the country recently and was thinking of coming over to see you and your parents one of these days.” “Well it has been long. Anyway meet
A few days later, Steph received a call from her sister. Her father was sick and admitted to the hospital. Though she may not be talking to her dad, it shocked her, and she was scared of losing him. After all, he was the only parent she had after the demise of her mother. She called George and rushed to the hospital. She found her sister Mercy and the rest of the family in the waiting room. Her sister ran to her and started crying, but her step mum started criticizing her when she stepped in.“I thought you left the family, and we have nothing to do with you? Why are you here?” said her step mum“I have all right to see my dad when he is not feeling and when he is feeling well. Besides, what has it got to do with you? If you feel like not seeing me here, then go out and wait there. Otherwise, shut up and show some respect at the hospital,” Steph replied while sitting down. She could see doctors inside the room and didn’t need to ask the pe
Mr. Jackson was surprised to see George and from the way he looked at him one could see he knew him well.“Nice to meet you sir.”“Well it’s nice to meet you too. I hope you have been taking care of my daughter. She is a bit stubborn but nice girl hope you can handle her well.”“You don’t have to worry sir. I love your daughter and nothing is more important than her safety and wellbeing”“I love that. My girl has found a nice guy indeed. Am not worried about her anymore with you by her side”“Come on dad why do you say that. Am good and also you are not going anywhere. I will be staying with you from now on.”“I know dear but he is a good company and hope he is a keeper as you are” Steph felt embarrassed to be teased in front of her boyfriend but she was happy”“Dad I have called the guy you said and heel be here later tonight also George said he will help whenever you need his help.“It’s okay. I know he will help. Why don’t you bring me chicken soup from the hotel downstairs while I
From the other room George could hear footsteps. He has always been a light sleeper. He was ready to see what the intruder wanted to achieve first before making a move. When he heard the door being opened he moved swiftly towards the room and caught the hit from Mr. Jackson on the intruder’s headEven after so many years he was surprised by the vigor he still had on him. A mafia is always a mafia even when the environment changes.He jumped on the guy and hit him hard and made sure he was unconscious. He then made a call and few men come to take him away.Steph woke up from all the commotion in the room and was surprised to see her dada and George standing in the middle of the room. Though her dad was sick and weak he seemed different. Also there was a man lying on the floorShe didn’t need to ask too much and waited for them to fill her in. She knew her dad and man very well. When they want her to know they will tell her if not then she won’t force it.When two men took the man under
Steph looked at the way George was looking at her blankly and knew he was deep in thoughtsShe moved and held his hands in her’s. He was brought back to reality with the gestures. He held her hand tightly and kissed her lips passionately. Steph was caught off-guard but still she responded with the same passion. She was brought back to her senses when she remembered her father was in the next room. She cut the kiss and held his chin looking into his eyes.“Not here babe. Don’t forget dad is in the next room”“Now tell me what’s happening”“Well I promised to be honest with you but am not sure if you are ready for everything that is happening.”“Someone send over the assassin to get rid of your father. We suspect it’s one of your father’s enemy that has been working with your stepmother for a while.”“What? For how long has dad known that Nicole is a traitor?“He says its way before you moved out of the house. In fact he thought it was wise of you to move out and pretended not to care t
The look he gave her showed how much he loved her. It would hurt her so much to see him in pain. No matter what happens, they have come too far to give up on the way.Besides, they are facing unknown forces with impending danger lurking in the dark. The best thing they could do at the moment is to be united.With a determined expression and decision, she nodded at him."I want to be with you no matter who you are. I love you and everything you have got, I can handle."George hugged her tightly and kissed her all over the face. She has never seen him this happy. He was all smiling. The determination in his eyes to make her the happiest woman on earth was evident. He has never loved anyone as much as he loved her. He was willing to do anything for her.In the following few days, things went well, and Mr. Jackson was sent home. George and Steph went with him from the hospital while her stepmom remained at home to prepare his room and meals before he came.The reason he was discharged ea
In a warehouse in the suburbs outside of town. There was a man tied hanging on the wall with signs of being tortured.The door was opened from outside, and a man walked in slow, clear steps."Has he spoken yet?'"No sir""Wake him up.""Okay"Coldwater was splashed on his face. He gasps for air before trying to open his eyes completely to look ahead. From the look of it, the man seemed to have been trained for years."Just kill me. Am not going to talk""You wish" George walked over to the man and sat down.He picked a rod and inserted it fire. He seemed relaxed, like whatever he was doing was normal. It looked as it was not his first time doing the same."It's not hard answering a few questions. At least you can still keep your life. I don't like blood spilled on my hands. Well, at least that is what I believe, but it always ends up happening anyway." George said in a relaxed cold tone as he folded his shirt's long sleeveIf Steph could see how cold her man was, she would think agai
Their intimacy was interrupted when there was a knock on the door. Steph was grateful to whoever knocked on the door. George, on the other hand, was ready to kill whoever was on the door. "Boss, the lady has fainted. What should we do with her," the guy said from outside. "Get out of here. Do whatever you want to do," answered George. George was also grateful he was stopped in time. He wanted to marry Steph before he engaged in sexual intercourse. He wanted to claim her rightfully. That's what she deserves. He walked to his closet and wore casual shorts and a t-shirt He went back, lay down on the bed, and had Steph back on his arms but no intimacy. "Why did you come here today without telling me," George asked Steph. He knew it was not possible for her to just come. Something must have happened. "I received a text from you. You said there is something important we need to discuss and that I had to come quick. I guess you are not the one who texted me earlier." "How did you kno
