DEATH WISH (Episode 14)

 

****

ONE MONTH LATER

He sat near his grandmother, his head between his hands as he sobbed tearlessly… He lifted his head and stared at her…
She was still waiting for answers…
He sighed…
For the past month, the friendship between him and Maya had strained..
Yes, she did talk to him casually but nothing more than that…
In the first few days, he had thought she was just mad and would come around but then the days turned into weeks and into a month and he had never felt frustrated like this in his entire life.

He missed her… They were in the same house but he still missed her terribly…
“Are you going to tell me what happened while I was away?” Grandma Cecilia asked again…
“What do I tell you, grandma? That I was a complete moron?” He sighed
“What happened, son?”
“I fell in love grandma… That’s what happened.. I fell in love with Maya” he confessed and she grinned…
Finally…
“Then go get her son… Go!”
“I can’t… She won’t believe me. She hates me”
“What makes you think so?”
“While you were away, everything was going on fine… We even went out on a date and kissed a few times… One night, she asked me if I liked her and I gave the stupidest answer… I gave her an answer making it look like I was only interested in her body… She thought I was being so nice to her because I wanted to sleep with her…

I was confused at the time… I was only beginning to like her…
I didn’t know what it meant to love grandma… My words pushed her away and now I can’t tell her how I truly feel… It hurts badly to see her every day at work and mingle with other men… I see how they stare at her and it tears me to pieces… I love her grandma….”
He spoke with his voice thick with emotion…
His grandmother caressed his cheeks lost for words… Before she could say anything, they heard a knock…
“Come in”

The door opened, and Maya strolled in looking so beautiful in just her nightdress… Her hair tied into a high bun…
“Good evening” she greeted, avoiding his eyes like she always did ever since that night…
“Good evening… Do you need anything?”
“No grandma… I just came here to thank you for your hospitality… I would never forget… You gave me shelter and food, something my own family didn’t do and I will forever be grateful… I will be moving out tomorrow morning”
Adrian’s eyes widened, threatening to bulge out of its sockets
“You…you’re leaving? Why are you telling me now? Do you hate me so much?” His voice broke…

“I wish you would stay much longer my dear”
“Me too grandma but I’ve overstayed my welcome…I think I should move on… Thank you so much” she replied and walked out
“Maya!!!! Wait!!!” Adrian jumped and ran after her, his heart in his mouth..
“Wait please!!” He caught up with her and grabbed her hand to stop her… He spurned her around to face him…
“Don’t do this to us, please… Don’t leave” he begged
“This isn’t my home Adrian… Let me go”
“Alright fine… At least take my number… I know you deleted it so pls take it”
She looked at him
“I may have deleted your number, but I have it at heart,” she thought…
“No”

“Please stop avoiding me… Enough of it… Can’t you see it’s tearing me apart? I miss you… I miss us… I miss how you would blush at my compliments. I bloody miss you, Maya… Please stop creating distances between us… Let me explain what I said the last time… I never meant to hurt your feelings. I’m sorry and…”
She blinked “feelings? Who said I have feelings for you, Adrian?”
She saw the flicker of pain that flashed in his eyes as he released his grip on her…
“That’s a lie!!! And you know it… You have feelings for me… You like me… You confessed on the night you got drunk!” He flared up…
“Well guess what? I lied… I might have been drunk but I remembered everything I said to you that night” she lied

He sighed “I don’t care… I can make you love me back just like I love you… I’ve fallen madly in love with you Maya… Give me a chance” he pleaded…
She hadn’t realized he had moved closer to her, their lips were now inches apart…
He closed the distance, capturing her lips in his, kissing her, slowly, and passionately.
Maya wanted to kiss him back so bad.
But what if he was trying to sweet talk her again?
It took everything in her to push him away and slap him…
“Don’t you ever, kiss me again!” She sneered and walked away ignoring the hurt she saw In his eyes…

******

Shutting the door behind her, she sank to the floor and curled herself up into a ball, resting her chin on her knees as she cried…
She was battling within…
She didn’t know if Adrian really loved her as he said…
Even though she saw the pain in his eyes, she couldn’t help putting up a defense wall…..
“I love you, Adrian…I love you” she murmured as she cried…..

*****

At work, the next day, during lunch break, she looked around the cafeteria wanting to at least catch a glimpse of him, but she didn’t…
She missed him already…
She had packed out of his home at dawn so she wouldn’t see him…
She was currently staying with Elena, the only friend who never ridiculed her dressing or how she looked entirely…
They had been close friends until her father stopped paying her fees and she had to drop out… They had lost contact ever since then…

Recently after they had bumped into each other, Maya had explained her ordeal to her so she offered to let her stay in her apartment…
Maya sighed and turned to face her food when she spotted Adrian from the corner of her eyes…
He was seated at the farthest corner, looking gloomy…
He turned, and their eyes met briefly before she quickly turned away…
They were working in the same place.
Her moving out of his home was just a cos90 job… Either way, they were still going to see each other often…
“Help me dear Lord” she sighed

*****

A WEEK LATER

Adrian was oblivious to the loud music playing as he stood near the counter, gulping down his fourth shot of tequila…
His friends, Frank and Derrick stood near him, watching him drown his sorrows on alcohol…
“Enough Adrian!!” Frank growled and snatched the drink away from him…
He grumbled…
“Give it back” he slurred, drunkenness slowly setting in
“I’ve never seen him like this man” Frank shook his head
“She’s avoiding me… I know I made a mistake but hell!!! She should at least give me a chance to explain” he complained, grabbing the bottle near him and gulping down the tequila directly from it.

“Listen, Adrian… You should try to… Whoa!! Damn!!! She’s hot!!” Derrick exclaimed, his eyes fixated at the entrance of the club…
Frank frowned, turning to see the reason for his sudden exclamation…
“We have an issue at hand and… Whoa!!! Damn hot!!!” He also exclaimed, rubbing his forehead as he stared on sheepishly…
“Look at that beauty Adrian!” Frank nudged Adrian… He lazily glanced up and spotted two ladies talking to a guy…

For some reason, the shortest amongst the two drew his attention…
Even though he couldn’t see her face, she looked awfully familiar. Her back was turned to him… She was wearing a very skimpy red body con shimmering sleeveless dress that covered a little part of her thighs… Her hair was styled in loose, big curls dangling gracefully over her smooth caramel skin…
The Lady seemed to be uncomfortable as she kept pulling her skimpy dress down, in an attempt to cover the rest of her thighs…
The other lady she was standing with waved and disappeared into the crowd with the guy…

Now left alone the petite, caramel skinned lady was soon joined by a drunken looking guy…
He whispered something into her ear and then grabbed her waist, crushing their bodies together in a spoon position as he began grinding into her…
Adrian could see the girl trying to free herself from his grip as she squirmed in his embrace…

The drunken guy spurned her around and began to force her into a kiss… She pulled her face away from his and that’s when he saw her face…
His eyes widened in disbelief, shock climbing up his toes and into his legs, pinning him to the floor…
“Maya?” He slurred, blinking rapidly…
His friends turned to him, their eyes wide also
“She’s the same girl we met in your home? Wow!! She looks….” Frank didn’t complete his sentence when Adrian moved away from the counter, storming angrily towards the floor where Maya was…

****

He grabbed the guy and flung his body away from Maya, pushing her behind him protectively…
“Stay away… She’s with me” he growled at the guy
“I was just having fun dude” he grinned
“Another word from you and I will smash your face in… Get the hell outta here!” He yelled and the man scurried away, mumbling…
He turned to face her, cupping her face in between his hands…
“Did he hurt you? You okay?”
“Yes..I’m fine. Thank you” she wrapped her arms around his torso, pressing her face against his chest.

Oh, how she missed his warmth and sweet sandalwood scent…
“Why are you here? Dressed like that?” He queried
“Elena suggested I go out and have some fun… She made me wear this and then left me alone to dance with her boyfriend”
He pulled away, took off his jacket and draped it over her shoulders… She slipped her arms into it mumbling a thank you…
“Can we talk Maya? In a more serene place… Please?”
“Adrian I…”
“No nevermind” he turned to leave when she stopped him and spurned him around, planting her lips immediately on his, kissing him as her life depended on it…

****

Adrian was stunned, but just for a millisecond as he responded immediately, gripping her waist and pulling her to him…
He kissed her back nuzzling her lower lip, urging her mouth open…
And when she did, he sent his tongue gliding over hers, teasing her, tasting her…
He groaned into her mouth as he tasted the sweet mint flavor he liked so much…
How he missed her…
He broke their kiss and nuzzled her neck… She threw her head back, giving him more access…
Trailing his tongue upwards, he brushed her earlobe lightly, biting on it…
She moaned, clutching him tighter…

*****

“Damn!!! Can you see that?” Frank hit Derrick as they watched Adrian from a distance.
Derrick grinned as they watched…

****

Adrian pressed their forehead together, rubbing their noses together…
“I missed you so much it hurts Maya”
“I missed you more” she breathed..
“Can we go talk somewhere?”
“Okay”
“Hold on” he buttoned the jacket he gave her and stepped back, intertwining their fingers…
“Shall we?”
“Yes,” she nodded trying her best to hide the excitement bubbling inside of her…

******

In a secluded area, stood a woman, her face hidden in total darkness as she stared at Maya and Adrian exiting the club…
“That damn girl!!” She growled fisting the wall angrily. She moved away from the dark, covered her face with a shawl and then followed them discreetly…
