Rim got out of Sarah's embrace. She was about to ask her some questions but then she caught a glimpse of Tanasha staring at them as she came nearer. So Rim hesitated.
Mother in law here you are! I was looking for you everywhere. Tanasha choroused not sparing Rim an eye like she is invisible.
Ahh Tanasha l have been here all along what is it you want to tell me. You can go a head. Sarah replied.
When Rim heard that Tanasha wanted to have a word with her mother in law, she said;
Mom l will leave the two of you talk. Am going in the water now.
Okay dear but be careful. Don't drown yourself okay? Sarah replied to her. Okay l will was Rim's reply before she disappeared out of their sight.
She went straight into the bathroom and changed her red bikini to pink one. After she was done, she tired her hair into two big pigtails. She also applied pink lipstick to her lips before she went down near the lake. She started taking selfies.
Every thing she could find, she will pose on it. By the time she reached into water, Rim had taken more than fifty selfies. Flipping through them, She felt good that they were all good looking.
Putting the phone back into her backpack and leave onto the surface near by, Rim dive into the water.
Suddenly the waves came and they were too powerful. Even if She is a good swimmer, Rim lost her stamina somehow. She started to cry for help but it was unfortunate that there wasn't people around. The area where she was a bit far.
Because she was shouting earlier, the water entered her mouth and she started suffocating. She could breath at time thus she fell back into the water.
Sarah had finished talking to Tanasha and seemed that the conversation didn't go well between them. She was some how annoyed that she had such a daughter in law. She wondered why her son the smart person he is failed to get someone more disciplined.
She went to where her mother in law who amhas just woke up from a nap and sat down.
Where you able to talk with her about it? The old lady asked.
Yes but she denied everything mother despite the fact that l showed her evidence. Sarah replied.
Its okay Sarah let's wait for sometime. Her true self will be revealed to Malik in few days. As for now let's not bother about her. The old lady replied.
Hmmm OK mother l got it.
Hey mom and granny where is Rim. My friends just came l want to introduce her to them. Tariq was beaming with a smile. She went for swimming may be she is done by now check her over there. Sarah replied her son.
Tariq went and look for Rim but didn't see her, he saw other maids and asked them about her. But they knew nothing about her whereabouts.
He continued to search everywhere until he found Malik, Kim and Tanasha on a table eating fish. Did anyone of you saw Rim around l cant find her anywhere. They all shook their heads.
Okay l will still look for her. Tariq said. But after he had just walked few steps, the sound of someone saying there is a person in water. And she is a woman she seems dead. Come people we help her.
His words drew the attention of people nearby as Tariq was approaching nearby, his eyes landed on Rim's backpack.
Rim?!!! That person must be Rim. He shouted to the people behind him. Malik, Tanasha and Kim who didn't take any second to pass.
They all went to rescue her.Sure enough the girl was Rim. She wasn't breathing. Her eyes closed. Her body soft going in every direction that it's turned to go.
A man carried her from the water before he reached the land, Malik requested her from him. You know her, the man asked. Yes her to me.
He placed Rim on his shoulder and ignored the about to cry pitiful look of Tanasha. He carried her to the tent where the elders were resting. Tariq strolling behind. Plus Kim and Tanasha who didn't found the need for Malik to take Rim by himself. There was Tariq and Kim why did he have to do it.She asked her self.
And the urgent care and look of panic in his eyes made Tanasha so jealousy. Malik had been avoiding her for almost a year. He didn't touch her even though they were married.
She strongly believe that if it wasn't that collaboration between her father's European company and the Johnson group of company, Malik wouldn't have married her.
She long known that he run out of love with her for along time. This is because the mistake she made. She thought that he wouldn't know but he is the might Ceo of the Johnson group of companies. He could get any information he wants.
She thought that if they are bonded with marriage and even gave birth for him, he will consider that and resuming to love her like he used too.
Thus she requested her father five months ago when the two companies were going to sign an important deal. She requested him to put a condition that Malik must marry her first before they sign the deal.
To her amusement, Malik didn't blink even an eye when he accepted the condition hence they got married in Europe.
What made her sad was that on their first night together, Malik slept in another room not with her. The next day she complained, he came back all wasted with alcohol that he can barely help him self. Her plans hasn't worked till now.
And when they came back, Malik hasnt been himself. It's like he mind is destructed with something. But seeing the care he and his family give to that maid, she feels bad and scared about it. Even his family members act like they didn't put into action their marriage. They sleep in the same room now but accept talking few words, there is nothing bmreally between them like a married couple.
Malik put Rim down. What happened to her? The old lady and his mother asked in unison. She fell in water. Tariq replied. Did you give her any first aid? His mother asked. No Malik replied.
For God's sake Malik weren't you once a doctor? Why didn't you first give her one before carrying her all the way here? What if she.... Please mum stop. He will do it but she doesn't have clothes how will he have done it there. Everyone could see her naked. Said Tariq.
Malik gave her airway by tilting her head back and lifted her chin. He didn't care about others and there words.
He concentrated on seeing whether her chest was rising.
After few minutes, he pinched her nose closed, he took a deep and normal breath. He then closed her mouth with his.
Malik repeated the process two times until Rim's chest begun to rise. She started to breath again. But she was too weak to even lift a finger.Malik then pamped her chest by his strong fingures and Rim released all the water she had drunk.Rim later opened her eyes slowly but then she closed it. She needs hospital now. Malik informed them.Tariq where is my car keys or go get the car ready we will send her to the hospital right away. Sarah said worriedly. Malik will she be okay why has she closed her eyes again? The old lady asked. She was blaming herself to bring them here. Such a little girl to suffer what if she wasn't seen in time. Oh God please heal her soon. She kept on praying in her mind.Don't worry grandma. The first aid l gave her will help for a while until she reaches the hospital. Be rest assured. She is just too weak. Malik explained again.Hmm okay was the reply for the old lady.But she really felt uncomfortable about Rim's situatio
Johnson group of companiesIn the CEO's office the lights are still on despite the fact that it was already time to get off work. Malik sitting in his chair and his assistant and best friend Kim besides in another chair.Are you working over night again today? Kim asked. The all previous week is best friend as been working like crazy.He doesn't understand the reason. The company doesn't have any urgent orders per now. He just don't understand that is going on in his mind recently.No am not working today am going home. Yesterday it marked six months since that marriage so l need to get rigid of it..Malik said as he cleared his table.Do you think she will agree to what you are about to do? Have you got enough evidence? Kim asked Malik.Whether she agree or not, it's isn't her decision though. They thought that they are more smarter than me. They forgot that am Malik Johnson who can't tolerate anyone's trick. Malik continued.Then good
Am not hungry l already had dinner. With that Malik ascended the stairs into their room. Hitting his brief case loudly on the glass table. He was angry. Angry that his chance to get time alone in his bedroom was disturbed.He zoomed into his closet, go his black short and a shirt. After dressing, he headed out of the house to the swimming pool. Swimming has been one of his stress killer for along time now.He passed through the back. One reason not to bump into Tanasha and the other is that the back door is way near the pool.As he came near, he eyes glanced at the figure that was enjoying water. He wondered who could it be. He strode to the pool and realized who it was.Come out now he ordered.Rim had failed to sleep. Unknowingly her thoughts kept on lingering on the story the maids told her during the day. Malik had done the first aid for her. She wondered what it feels like to be kissed by someone.Actually she couldn't believe the other maids but
Saying so, Malik like a ghost disappeared from where he was in no time and was in front of Rim who didn't see that coming. She was settled as they stand face to face his eyes boring into hers. Run her mind advised. Putting that into action, Rim took few steps backwards only to be pulled back by Malik's strong hand. Where do you think you are running too. He told into her ears.. The scared Rim actually found his voice nice listening too. But she knows very well that standing in the embrace of a married man like this is a wrong thing. So Rim shouted;Let me go. She never knew that he will actually come to get her. Was he that free? Isn't he married to be outside this time?! She wondered.Why should l didnt you ask for it? Malik responded. Rim got more scared as she heard the roughness and coldness in his tone. Trouble she inwardly said.she then heard him say ;Those who are disobedient get punished. Am your boss when l tell you something, you have to do it.
Malik you weren't like that before. Cried Tanasha. Yes l was nt like this. But being good to people you get nothing other than betrayal. Malik replied. Malik? Tanasha called out in a soft voice. Malik only looked disgusted and went to sleep but Tanasha cried even more in that it was very difficult for him to lay down.Damn it Tanasha are you planning to make me sit the entire night. What's the meaning of all this? Malik asked irritated.Malik let's talk. Tanasha replied. And she started. I have apologized to you for over thousand times but you ain't willing to forgive me. I was stupid and careless. Malik what should l do then? I thought that when you agreed for us to get married, you had forgiven me.But these past six months has been a hell for me. I came to realize that you married me because that deal was important to you. Not our love. Malik sneered when she mentioned the word love. This woman is really something else. She got the guts to even mention lov
Malik didn't sleep again. He went to his study and began to work. Tanasha was left in thoughts. She was wondering whether Malik had done anything with Rim. But he hasn't been home lately. Her mind took her to that time when Malik lifted Rim to the tent. Could it be that that girl did it intentionally to seduce Malik???? I knew it the first time l saw that slut that she was upto something. Something of no good at all. Her mind came up with that....Hmm there is no way am going to compete with a maid for you Malik. Impossible.She slept in that.Today being Saturday, Malik isn't going to work. And for some reasons, he is looking forward to spend the day at home. After finishing his work, Malik went back to his room and wear his workout clothes and went for a morning run.Rim woke up today early and begun by cleaning her room. After she was done, she took a bath and wore her uniform. She dashed out of the room to begin cleaning the rest of the villa. She had lea
Cough, cough why is the smell too much today. The old lady also asked. Cough, cough she repeated coughing.You see that even grandma is smelling it. Malik told. Actually Rim just thought that Malik was trying to get back at her because of the insults she gave him last night by ordering her to clean again.But after coming to the living room, the smell was too much that she her self felt it. Am sorry Mr. Malik and grandma but l really used five small Dettol covers. I also used them three days ago but the smell wasn't this much. Rim apologized.Rim go and bring the type of Dettol that you used. Said Magdalena. She obediently went and came back with with a small Jerrycan of Dettol. Did you really use this one to clean. Magadalena asked. Yes l used that. Rim replied. I think there is something wrong some where. If Rim is sure that she used this Dettol, there is no way that the smell will be this too much.This smells like clorox or that other medicine
Malik took Rim's hand and run water over it. He did the same on her thigh. At first Rim was scared and shy to bunch up her skirt for him to also run water on it. But seeing his serious expression and the presence of the old lady on the entrance of the bathroom, she obediently did as told. Anyway grandma is here he can't do anything stupid to me. Rim thought to herself.But Malik on the other hand was finding it difficult to breath. He swallowed hard his saliva from time to time. Rim's skin very bright and soft. Not even a single scar on her body. And when he poured water on her, Rim hissed a sound that was about to drive him crazy. Malik took long time to run water on her. In fact he was enjoying doing it.His eyes could study every part of her that was in his view.He wondered since when did he became such a pervert. To the extent of drooling over his maid. If it was not grandma standing at the entrance, only the heavens knows how long he would have f
