She couldn’t hold herself back anymore but
to cry out. “Am so sorry for everything.”she
said crying. Justin was staring at her from
his car as she cried. He looked away and
tears also dropped from his eyes. He started
the engine and drove out of the compound.
At royal hour school, Charlie got to school
early searching everywhere for Justin. She
never get a good sleep overnight, she kept
thinking about him. She promised to
apologize to him properly hoping he would
forgive her and forget about what happened.
When she searched everywhere and was not
able to find him, she saw down on a bench
under a tree. “Why is he not here yet?”she
asked looking around. students could be
seen in the, compound walking about.
Someone came sitting beside her and she
quickly looked at the person hoping it’s
Justin, But who she could sew was Daniel.
“Hey Daniel”she called feeling disappointed.
“hi miss”Daniel replied with a smile. Sarah’s
expression went bad again. “Did you guys
had a fight?”he asked looking at her. By not
replying him, he took it as a yes. “I noticed
he was not himself yesterday. Even though I
asked him why he was like that, he never
said anything to me. He kept drinking and
drinking the whole night before I left his
place. I guess that was why he is not yet in
school by now”Daniel said looking at her.
Sarah was surprised by what he said. “He
really drank too much yesterday? Oh
no”Sarah said feeling bad. “I don’t think he
would be in school today. Since Mrs Henry
went back to Malaysia yesterday morning,
he has no one to force him here.”Daniel
said. “So what would he be doing at home
all alone?”Sarah asked looking at him. “He
would probably be drinking again or still
sleeping I guess”Daniel said looking at her.
“What have you do to him to make him that
way? It has been long I saw him like that.
Did you breakup with him?.”Daniel asked.
“It was my fault. I think I need to see him
now”Sarah said standing up. Daniel also
stood up looking at her”where are you going
to?”he asked. “To justin”she replied and
walked away before Daniel could say
“Why did she have to go when classes were
about starting?”Daniel said Checking his
wrist watch. He saw Hanna going to class
and he quickly walked up to her smiling.
When Sarah got to Mr Henry’s house, she
greeted the maids on her way in. When she
got to the living room, One of the maid
stopped her when she was about going into
the passage leading to his room”he doesn’t
want to see anybody for now. Please ma’am
it’s better you come back later or call him
before going in.”she said in a polite manner.
“Don’t worry about that. Am not anybody.
Please let me see him”Sarah begged her. “If
I allow you in, I might lose my job. Please
it’s better you call him or come back
later”she said in a pleading voice. “OK”Sarah
said and reached for her phone. She called
his phone but he wasn’t picking up. She
called it again, it was ringing but he refused
to pick it. Sarah now thought he might have
done something bad to himself. “Please let
me in. You can’t be fired. I guarantee your
safety OK?”Sarah said and walked towards
his room not waiting for her to say anything
again. When she got to his door, she took a
deep breath before opening it. She peeped
in still standing by the door but she saw
nobody in his room. He was not there.
“Where could he be?”she asked herself
walking into his room. She has no idea of
what happened in his room. It looks messy
and rough. Some stuffs were displaced from
where they are before. Everywhere was so
messed up. “What in the world happened
here? Did he do all this?”she said looking
around his room. She dropped her bag and
started arranging the stuffs to where they
are before. After putting them back in place,
she wanted to lay the bed properly, but
something shining in a small black box
caught her eyes. She picked up the box and
brought out the necklace in it. She hold it in
her hand staring at it. “It looks pretty. But
why is he having a girl’s stuff?”she said still
staring at it.
Justin came in from outside and saw her
standing there with her back on him. She
didn’t hear the sound of the door when he
came in, so she didn’t notice he was there
already. Justin stared at her for a while
before he finally spoke”what do you think
you’re doing in my room?”he asked.
When Sarah heard his voice, the box and the
necklace fell from her in shock and she
quickly turned to him. “A..am..am here..
Because..”she stammered not knowing what
to say. Justin looked at the necklace that
dropped from her and looked back at her
face”You’re here because of what? How can
you come into a guy’s room carelessly and
start toughing his stuffs without his
knowledge?”he asked moving closer to her.
“Am sorry. I think I went too far coming all
the way here.”Sarah said looking at him.
“You don’t need to be sorry to me this time
again. Am tired of that word already.”Justin
said as he moved closer to her. When he
got to her, Sarah could still perceive the
odour of the wine he took. He picked up the
necklace on the floor beside her and
dropped it back on the bed. “Get out now, If
you have no reason for coming here”he said
not looking at her. “I want to know the
reasons you were not in school. Why? Have
you really been drinking since
yesterday?”Sarah asked looking at him. He
took off his shirt not minding her questions
or her words. Now only a white singlet could
be seen on him and a small short he was
putting on. Sarah’s eyes went wide as he
saw him undressing in her present. She
don’t know what else to say anymore. She
kept staring at him wondering what he was
trying to do. But he went ahead and took of
the singlet also. By now, his Sekxy Abs were
smiling at Sarah. She swallowed hard still
staring at him. “Wh…what are you doing
right now? Why are you undressing?”she
asked looking at him. Justin looked at her
with an unknown expression”what do you
think am doing? Please leave now. I need to
shower”he said looking at her. “OK. Please
just spare a minute. Just hear what I have
to say for a minute”Charlie said. Her eyes
can’t just stop staring back at his body as
she try to talk. Justin kept staring at her
expecting her to say whatever she have to
say.”Em..ehm…am sorry for…
ev..everything”she said staring at him. After
that statement, her lips were tightly shut not
knowing what to say again. The more she
tried to talk, the more her eyes kept staring
at those Abs. She was carried away by his
amazing six packs. Of course Justin was
aware of that.
“What do I have to say next? How does he
expect me talk looking at him like this? No
no no! Sarah wake up. Your time is running
out!”she thought to herself looking at him.
By hearing the word sorry again, Justin
moved closer to her. Sarah quickly stared
off not looking at him again”I..I…came..to”
Justin got close to her and looked straight
into her eyes”I said no more of that word
again. The more you say sorry, the more it
got me really upset. Charlie… I mean Sarah
please just stop this already. Am tired of it
please. Just leave my room since you don’t
have any other thing to say. Please I need
to be alone for now ok”he said looking at
her. “Am sor…”she wanted to repeat it again
but quickly stopped looking at him. “Sarah
please leave. Do you want me to take you
out myself?”Justin asked in a little harsh
“OK I will leave for now. Sorry for breaking
into your room”she said and left his room
closing the door behind her.
After she left, Justin leaned his back to the
wall staring at the door. “Sorry,sorry,sorry.
All the time. When will she stop saying that
word to me? I can’t just understand her
anymore”Justin said to himself staring at
He moved to his bed and was about taking
off his short to go into the bathroom. Just
as he was about taking it off, Sarah came in
again. And he quickly stopped staring at her.
