DADDY’S GIRL (Episode 20)

 

***********

“What happened Mark?” Priscilla, the lady he had brought along sat near him wiping the blood around the wound on his cheek.
“I told you I was attacked. I was trying to protect Helena. I don’t know where that guy came from” Mark replied still wallowing in pain.

The kind of scar the wound would leave on his face after healing would literally disfigure him.
That bitch!!!! He growled mentally. He was going to teach her a lesson…
“How come we didn’t hear any noise?” Priscilla asked
“How would you have heard when you were playing music?”
Sally thought for a moment and spoke up “but we weren’t playing music”
“Please my head aches. Stop bombarding me with questions” he replied irritated.

Sally stared at him continuously wondering why he was lying. There was no music not to talk of noise. It was just a few chattering accompanied by food and drinks. She eyes him, starting from head to toe… There was nothing that showed he was engaged In any kind of struggle. His shirt was still neat with no crumbles. Well…She shrugged and went to stand by her boyfriend.

“I’m leaving. I need to go see a doctor” Mark said and got up, walking out of the house.
“Goodnight guys” Priscilla waved and followed Mark…

**************

Her eyes fluttered open as she rolled her eyes trying to adjust to the darkness that engulfed her…
“Helena?” She heard him call and that’s when she shifted and realized she was in his arms.
“How long have I been sleeping?” She asked disentangling herself from his grip.

She felt like she had been sleeping for hours.
“Just a few minutes. Probably twenty minutes” he answered and added, “how do you feel now?”
“Better…”
“Why did you do that? You gave me quite a scare… Why did you run like that when you know it will have implications for your health?”

“Don’t scold me, Arnold. I haven’t had an attack in several months”
“So that gives you the license to put your health on the line?”
“I’m sorry OK. I was scared.”
“Who attacked you, Helena?” He asked
She opened her mouth to speak then she closed it again… How sure was she that he was going to believe her when she tells him it was his best friend that attacked her, she wondered…

“Tell me please” he insisted, worry written all over her face. Seeing how worried he was about her, she smiled and leaned in, planted a kiss on his lips
“That was to thank you for saving my life” she breathed…
Arnold stared at her for half a second before pulling her by the waist into his embrace and crushing his lips with hers, kissing her slowly at first and when she relaxes and kisses him back, urgency sets in, each kiss sparking frenzies of desires jolting his once dead emotions back to life… Grabbing her tighter, he kisses her harder sending his tongue to tease her and the scenes from that rainy night on which they had made love replaying in his mind…

“Christ! I love you, Helena! I love you” He groaned into her mouth and she froze, breaking away from their kiss…
“You what?”
“N…nothing…” he stammered licking his lips
“I heard you, Arnold. You said you loved me!” She smiled
“No”
“But you….”
“No Helena no! You heard wrong. I didn’t mean it okay. I said it in a heat of passion nothing more. You’re my daughter’s teacher and I do not love you. I don’t so stop getting ideas” he stressed looking away as he spoke, fearing his eyes will give him away…

She stared at him, tears welling up in her eyes as she recalled the first time he did that. She had gone to his house to ask for his help to save her mother when he had pretended to be sorry for calling her a whore and proceeded to kiss her, telling her he liked her …That time, she had fallen for his schemes so why did she allow him to fool her the second time? She reprimanded herself as the tears threatened to fall…

Yet again she had fallen in love with a jerk for the sixth time!!!
Whaammm!!!!! She slapped him hard!
“Then why did you lead me on like this Arnold? Why? Taking me out for dinner, the compliments, the kisses, the touches, it was all just some game to you? I should have known better! A man as pompous and arrogant as you can never change. And to think I had fallen in love with you Arnold. You’re a jerk!!! A bastard!!! I hate you!!!” She spat hitting him before getting up and walking away…

“Damn it!!!” Arnold cursed hitting the ground with his fists…
Why did he say that? Why was he so scared to proclaim his love for her?
“Damn it!!” He cursed again as he watched her walk away, his heart breaking into shreds…

************

“It’s getting late and…” Sally was speaking to her boyfriend when Helena walked in past the security guard at the gate and slammed the metallic gate…
“My purse Sally…” She muttered as soon as she got near then…
She only came back because she needed money to take a car home and it was all in her purse which she had left in the mansion.

“I heard you had an attack. Are you okay?” Alex asked. She ignored and bent down to pick up her purse from her grass…
“I’m leaving Sally. Are you coming?” She frowned.
“Errm sure… Goodnight baby. I will call you” she kissed Alex and followed her friend.

It was no doubt she was angry and it was well known amongst Helena’s closest friends that whenever she was angry, no one dared frustrated her with more questions because she could become worse. Knowing that Sally kept mute as they sat in a taxi and drove off… Probably she would ask her when she was a lot calmer…

**********

“Are you stupid Noldie?” Alex hit Arnold’s head for the third time that day as he narrated what had ensued between them two days ago.
It was a Saturday and per Mark’s suggestion, they had gone to a very popular club to clear their minds…

“Ouch Alexander, that hurts. Stop hitting me. I know I messed up” Arnold groans holding his head
“Yeah, you messed up big time. I mean who does that?”
“Honestly I don’t know why I did that. I just don’t. You don’t know how much I regret my actions. All I want is to go to her, kiss her, hold her hands and tell her I’m sorry for being a jerk. I really do love her Alex. I do but I don’t know what’s stopping me” he lamented

“You’re a real jerk!!”
“Listen, guys. Let’s just forget and have fun. Look around you? So many pretty girls. Forget about Helena and focus on your daughter. You’re a rich and renowned architect, you should be going after women your class not some school teacher” Mark chipped in

“Are you for real Mark?!!” Alex exclaimed but he was answered with a hiss from Mark as he got up and walked to the stage where he grabbed two ladies and danced with them as they grinded into him…
Alex watched them shaking his head.. On a normal day, he would have gladly joined Mark after all heaven was in between a woman’s legs but now, for the first time he felt committed to Sally and he wasn’t ready to make her cry like he had made all those girls cry… He sighed and sipped his drink…

“Oh no!” Arnold muttered as he brought out his phone suddenly remembering he had left Fiona in the care of his neighbors and he needed to check up on her…
“I need to make a call Alex,” he said and walked out…
“Hey handsome, care for a dance?” A tall Beautiful lady, dressed in matching red lingerie, more than half of her body exposed, stops him before he could step out. He turned to stare at her and she was glancing at him seductively wiggling her breasts so he could see…

“Errrm no thanks I…..” He trailed off when he spotted her at a distance holding a bag and staring at him. The look in her eyes pierced him and he staggered. He could see pain, sadness, and anger as she stood there staring at him standing at the entrance of the club with a girl who wouldn’t stop brushing her body against his, touching his protruding biceps and leaning into him…

“Helena!” He breathed staring at her as she turned to walk away …
“Baby!” The girl whispered and he yanked her hand away from his body and runs out following Helena.
