A Story written by Gaglo Blessing (blessinggaglo@yahoo.com)

Tomi

Richmond’ s  body weighed me into the hard tiled floor. He had given me some back hand slaps as well which made my temple trob painfully. His erect deek was digging into my tummy, he was still trying to kiss me while i fought back with all my strength.  Suddenly, something sent  Richie sprawling across the room. Someone. It wasn’t  something like i thought. He jerked Richie by the collar pulling him towards the door. I sat up, my hand tentatively touching my bruised cheek.

He threw Richie out and closed the door. My crazy ex boyfriend pounded on the door calling me names. He got tired and i heard him drag his feet towards the gate.

” The last time i saw you, you were in need of rescuing and i just rescued you from your rogue boyfriend. Wow! I’ m beginning to feel like superman ”  he flexed his muscles.

I pulled my tattered top up and got up on shaky legs. I was shaken, i couldn’t believe Rich would ever attempt to Molest me or even hit me. He was drunk. A little voice reminded me that he was intoxicated and he wasn’t in his senses. I went into my bedroom, i changed into my PJ and i went back into the sitting room.

” What are you doing here?” those weren’t the words i had planned to say. I wanted to thank him but somehow those words had flown out of my mouth before i could take them back.

He blinked his eyes dramatically.

” Who are you? and what planet are you from? i saved you from been raped by that drunk guy! the least you could do is say thank you.”

” He wasn’t trying to Molest me! he was……. he was drunk like you have pointed out”

” Oh great! sorry i came into your home uninvited” he walked towards the door and paused.    ” by the way, this place look a lot nicer and cleaner…….just like Ceasar ‘ s crib!”

” Who is Ceaser?”

” My dog”   he said, banging the door after himself.

” What happened to your face?”  the nosey office secretary asked as soon as i entered into the reception area.

” A bike accident ”

” Oh God!” she exclaimed, dramatically acting like she cared.

I briskly walked away before she could ask more questions. He was on my mind. I couldn’t get him out of my mind and thought. I don’t even know his name or where he lives but twice he had rescued me. What is it about him that brings the worse out of me? i pounded my hand on my head.

” Get out! get out of my head!” i muttered.

” Are you alright? ” Miss Maggie asked, she walked into my office and sat down.

” I am fine ma”

She gave me a look. ” Man Problem?”

Miss Maggie was a kind soul. She always had a good word to say to everyone, i couldn’t believe she was related to that conniving Linda. I could never forget how Richie was banging her on that fateful day and how she was screaming for more. I needed someone to share my problems with and a shoulder to cry on but i wouldn’t dump my problems on Miss Maggie’ s shoulders because she was my related to my boss.

” No” i lied. I tried to laugh to cover the lie but it came out as fake as Nicki’ a$$.

” I came to ask you for a favour”

” Me?”

What favor could she possibly want from me?

” Yes.”

” Okay ma’am”

” Victoria is going through some crises now”she said softly.
