DEATH WISH (Episode 15)

 

*****

He couldn’t help caressing her soft cheeks as they sat under the shade of a tree in a park… The cold breeze blew against her hair, making it ruffle in different directions… Staring at her now, under the dim streets lights, she looked exceptionally divine…
“You’re so beautiful” he whispered, running his thumb softly over her lips.
Maya gulped.
This man seated before her was going to be the death of her…

“You wanted to talk Adrian” she shifted away from him, causing his hand to fall off her lips
He sighed…
“Listen, Maya… Before I met you, I…let’s just say I was living a promiscuous life… I had never really had a serious relationship. I had never been in love before. But you changed me, Maya… You broke all my defenses… You came into my life and made me want things I never would have thought of. Your presence made me feel things I never had…

You made me want to live a better life… These past few months after I took you into my home, I haven’t been able to think straight… You’ve messed up my head Maya… Hell, my brain doesn’t even function properly without the thought of you… You’re like a drug and I’m addicted to you… With you, I feel like I can fly and sour high up into the skies…
Sometimes I find myself smiling and then I realize I’m thinking about you…

This has nothing to do with your body Maya, no….on the contrary, it’s your heart I want.
I know, what I said the last time was stupid but believe me when I tell you that at that time I was trying to figure out what I was feeling… It was an entirely new, strange feeling to me and I didn’t want to base on just my attraction towards you and term it as love.

No…
I was confused but believe me, now I do know what I feel for you, Maya. I do know” he breathed, staring at her, his gaze boring into the soul…
Maya swallowed, her palms getting sweaty because of nervousness…
“What do you feel?” She whispered.
Adrian drew closer to her, took her hand and placed it on the left side of his chest…
“Do you feel this? Do you feel how fast my heart is pounding against my chest? That’s what you do to me, Maya. This heart beats for you beautiful, it yearns for no one else but you. This is what you make me feel… You make me feel this and lots more…

What do I feel Maya? Do you want to know? It’s love, Maya… I feel love. Something I’ve never felt before… I love you beautiful… I love you. I’m insanely and madly in love with you. I don’t know how you did it but you made me fall for you… I want to be part of your life. I want to share in your joys and sorrows. I want to be the only to call you beautiful, my love, my Queen… Everything Maya… Everything…I love you”
She sniffed, fighting back the tears.

How could someone have a way with words as Adrian did…
“Say something, please… How do you feel about me” he pleaded
“I love you too Adrian”
He stared at her, letting her words sink in, registering in his brain…
And when it did, his lips curled into a wide grin…
He jumped up from the bench on which they were seated and then screamed: “then be my girlfriend!!!”
She laughed.

“Please… Don’t turn me down. Say yes. Please say yes… Please” he begged, going on his knees and giving her the puppy look.
She laughed…
He groaned “you enjoy seeing me suffer… Say yes already please…you’re the first girl I’ve ever had to propose to.. I swear I won’t hurt you…well not intentionally… No.. What I mean is I won’t.. Shit. What am I even saying?… I mean..” He was cut off when she knelt before him, planting a quick kiss on his lips…

“Stop talking nonsense, Adrian… I will be your girlfriend” she whispered against his lips.
He smiled, wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer…
“You couldn’t resist my charms could you?” He smirked and she frowned
“You corny bastard!!”
He laughed, getting on his feet and pulling her along with him…
“I love you baby girl”
She blushed…

“You make me feel a lot of things Adrian..”
“I know, I know.. I’m irresistible” he teases and she hits him
“You’re just annoying. Insufferable!”
“And handsome. Come here” he pulls her to him and captures her lips again, kissing her…
“So..” He breathes after breaking their kiss, pressing their foreheads together, the tips of their noses brushing
“Tell me about yourself… I want to know everything”
She wraps her arms around his neck “what exactly do you want to know?”
He grins mischievously

“You could start by telling me the size of your panty and bra.
She gasped and stepped away from him…
“You vile creature!!”
“What? It’s just a harmless question. Besides, I might come across a bra that I like in a shop and decide to buy it for you…” He tried to hide a smile as he watched her expression…
Oh, she was so sweet and innocent…..
“I was joking come on baby… Okay. Tell me about your childhood, your family. Everything” he sat back down on the bench and pulled her to sit on his lap…
“Well…..” She began playing with her hair…

****

She took off the shawl covering her face and entered the compound, the security details bowing to her. She ignored and continued walking into the east wing of the vast mansion…
“Good evening mom” her two sons greeted as soon as she entered the lavishly decorated hall.
She ignored them, gazing at the staircase
“Where’s your father?”
“In bed mom”
“And the doctor? Is he gone?”
They nod
“Good” she proceeds walking towards the spiral staircase that leads to the master bedroom.

“Mom? We are starving. You gave all the maids an off today and there’s no food”
She turns sharply to stare at her eighteen-year-old son
“Will you shut your stupid mouth, Andrew. If you’re hungry, go get yourself some food.. Go to the kitchen, drink some milk, rat poison. I don’t care!”
“Rat poison? Mom!!!” He shrieks “we are your son’s mom!!!”

“As if I don’t know. Tell me something new” she rolled her eyes and walked out…
“Why is a mom like this?” Fourteen-year-old Jake asked his elder brother who was asking himself the same question.
“Come Jake… Let’s go out to the restaurant nearby and get you some food okay?”
His younger brother nodded and followed him.

****

Margaret shut the door behind her and stared at her husband laying on the king sized bed, a drip attached to his wrist, an oxygen mask over his nose and several wires attached to his body…
She eyed him, moving closer…
She heard him “my daughter. Maya. Maya” he called out repeatedly in his unconscious state…
She frowned…..

That stupid Maya!!!!
Upon all she had done to get her out of the house, he still thinks of her…
Even after, forcing her son to help Her into making him think that his daughter had tried to seduce her own half brother…
It didn’t work.

Maya had dropped out of school because her father, despite being wealthy, stopped paying her fees as a punishment.
It still wasn’t enough…
So she had drugged Maya’s drink one night and when she had fallen deeply asleep…
Well, she smiled.
Recalling how shocked, hurt and disappointed her husband, Maya’s father was when he found her stark naked in bed with her stepbrother, Andrew…
He had thrown her out of the house, without any clothes or belongings or money…

Margaret was satisfied after that. She was happy that finally, she will get to share her husband’s wealth with just her sons and no one else…
She was happy… Until she had overheard her husband making changes to his will…
“So are you sure you want me to include your eldest child to your will?” She heard a voice, probably the lawyer asked

“Yes…I did what I did because of anger but she’s still my daughter, my blood….and I love her” Mr. Robinson answered
“Very well then sir. It shall be done”
Margaret fumed clenching her fists.
She wished she could strangle him to death but…
Oh, damn the stupid security camera’s…
She knew the camera’s in the bedroom had been activated if he had an attack again and no one else was around to help.

She stared at the oxygen tank, near the bed. Wishing, wishing that she could just cut off the oxygen supply…
She had to get rid of him somehow… She had to…
His purpose in her life was already fulfilled but now, he was just being a nuisance…
She had to lay her hands on his wealth, all of it. All.

*****

There was silence as Adrian watched her bite her lower lip, blinking rapidly and fidgeting with the jacket she wore
“So you’re saying you were framed by your stepmother for reasons unknown? And your father threw you out without further investigation?”
She nodded
“And you dropped out of the university?”
She nodded, sniffing.
“Are you crying baby?” He asked… She shook her head.
He placed his finger under the chin and lifted her head to stare at him, her face was wet.
His heart broke.

“Don’t cry beautiful. It breaks my heart”
She wrapped her arms around his neck and planted her face In his chest as she broke down
“I just miss him so much, Adrian. He should at least give me a chance to explain. I miss my father, Adrian”
“I will get him back Maya. I promise you. I will bring your father back to you. I swear” he rubs her back softly.
He didn’t how he was going to do it but he would roam the entire universe just to make her happy…

“Don’t cry, please. The last time you cried like this, I found you unconscious, blood pooling everywhere… Don’t cry baby please”
“Don’t let me go, Adrian, please. You’re all I have” she held on tighter to him…
“Never beautiful. Never”
“Kiss me, Adrian, please”
He smiled “why don’t you start it if you want it so bad”

She stared at him in disbelief “why do you always have to be so annoying Adrian?”
He chuckled “if you want something, go for it. You want to succeed, go for it head-on.. You want a kiss, come for it” he pouted his lips
She groaned… He was smiling… His eyes sparkling with mischief…

She stares at his lips and then groaned again.
“Don’t think love. Don’t think. Just let your heart guide you… I’m waiting”
Still seated on his laps, she leaned into him and then kissed him, her lips barely touching his…
She could see he wasn’t making any effort… His lips were parted, waiting for her…
She brushed her lips across his before capturing them, kissing him…

She adjusted herself so that both her legs were now on either side of him… She cupped his face and continued to kiss him more as he responded with the same urgency…
She hadn’t kissed a lot of men. No.. Adrian was her first but hell!! She wouldn’t trade Adrian’s lips for another…
The man could kiss…
They continued to kiss, harder and harder until they both felt droplets of rain on their head, then on their clothes. They break apart, staring at each other…

“I love you, Maya… It’s drizzling. Come, let’s go home” he stood to wrap his arms around her waist, nuzzling her neck
“Home?”
“Yeah. Grandma has been biting my head off ever since you left… She purposely traveled because she wanted to leave us alone and come back to the news that we are a couple… Let’s go so I can tell her you’re officially my girlfriend now”
She blushed “and Elena?”
“You can talk to her later. Come… Quick” he began to run as it began to rain in torrents… She laughed and chased after him, both their clothes getting drenched in the rain…

******

Margaret eyed the oxygen tank again, her fingers itching to do something evil…
She moved towards it, ready to cut off the supply when the telephone rang…
Frowning, she answered it
“Who the hell is this, calling at this hour?” She fumed, still eyeing her unconscious husband

“Hello, co-wife… You hurt my husband, or should I say our husband? Your sons who are currently eating in a restaurant will have to pay with their lives”
The line went dead…
Margaret staggered back in shock as she stared at the telephone.
