A hungry girl is a dangerous being…
Having focused his eyes on his food so as not to upset Liza with his mood, Mike glanced up moments later to see how she was fairing and he blinked. Not just once but repeatedly.
He blinked hard to be sure he was not seeing things as he stared blankly at the empty plate in front of Liza.
Wondering if she had disposed of the food while he was not looking, Mike quickly glanced around to check for anything untoward but he saw nothing.
There was nowhere for Liza to hide the food because the trash can was indeed far from her.
Which means all that food went into Liza’s tummy. Holy cow!
Taking his wide eyes away from the empty plate to focus it on Liza, Mike was speechless.
Knowing what Mike was thinking, Liza chu
Loss of innocence can genuinely hurt…*******“What exactly are you trying to say, Martha?” Tom's voice also trembled and it was plainly obvious to see his unsteady hands on the table.Almost feeling a bit of pity for him, Martha remembered all he had done and she hardened her heart. Seeing an opportunity to crumble everything about this worthless guy, she coldly looked at him.“What am I trying to say? I’m not trying to say anything, Tom, I’m telling you the only way you will see Belina is when you die. Or have you forgotten you killed her?” Martha was ruthless with her information.“Killed her? You...Yo...you mean...Bel...Belina is dea...?” Tom could not force out the last word as he stared into Martha’s unsmiling face.“Yes, she is dead and you killed her. Don’t you forget
A living dead is a man with guilt…*******Waiting with bated breaths, he almost fainted from the relief when he saw it was Martha this time around. Now dressed in her home clothes, it’s obvious she is now closing for work and ready to go home.She must be tired and anxious to get home, having worked for ten hours straight.‘Hmm, a pity she will not be having that rest for now. Not until he gets an answer.’ Tom decided as he moved on silent treads to follow her.Judging from the way she felt calm with her head lowered to the pavement as she walked, Tom knew she had no idea he was following her.Which is natural! He would not have thought someone would have the time to wait for eight hours just to see him also.Humming a little tune, Martha trekked forward. Obviously she had changed address and wa
No one deserves so much pain…******Wondering if she should go over to him and calm him, Martha knew she was not capable, he was too much in his pain to listen to her.Besides, the pain he was feeling now was nothing to what they had suffered in his hands as his friend and girlfriend.Knowing there was nothing she could do for him even though a part of her wanted to help, Martha watched for a few more minutes as he kept on hitting the concrete with bloodied hands.Forcing herself to act unconcerned, she heaved a huge sigh as she turned her back on him to slowly walk home.On the pathway that led to her house, Martha finally bent her head to retch painfully into the flowers in reaction to the pain she just witnessed. It was not until she vomited everything she ate that day, that she felt calm enough to go home.Tom on t
A girl of innocence is hard to convince…******Little did she know!Giving Tom a hug, she had turned at that moment when someone walked in and she heard their voice.She had left Tom to run to her friend in greeting.“B e l i n a, you made it.” Martha cried as she gave her friend a hug.Returning Martha’s hug, Belina then pushed her a bit backward to look into her happy face.“And why won’t I make it to your birthday? We are best friends, ain’t we?” She had asked with an arched brow and hurtful eyes.“I’m sorry babes...but I knew you were out of town and I was not so sure you would arrive on time.” Martha had apologised in a small voice.“Oh, you silly girl.” Belina said in a mocking voice of maturity and they ha
Loving the wrong person can kill…*****Feeling lost, Martha gazed up to look at him, wondering what she had missed.“I’m lost, Tom. Tell who?” She asked.“Belina of course, she needs to know as soon as possible.” Tom said impatiently, wondering what is wrong with Martha to make her slow in thoughts.“Oh Belina, of course that’s not a problem, Tom, she is my friend, I will tell her, I’m sure she will be so happy.” Martha chuckled in happiness, glad to know Tom was concerned about her friend.“Oh Martha, thank you, thank you. Of course you should tell her, she is your friend, she will listen to you and take your words. Why didn’t I think of that earlier?” Tom hit the palm of his hand on his forehead in disgust.“Why won’t she listen to me, Tom?
An abusive man is a weakling…*****‘How? Why?’ These are the questions she had asked that night with fear on her face and when the police man that called told her what happened, she had stood in that restaurant, frozen.‘Tom! Tom!’ All she could think and remember from all the words was Tom’s name. Tom is wanted for assault and battering.‘Why?’ Martha kept asking and coming out of her daze, she had left the restaurant in a run to her flat.She did not know why but her instinct kept telling her someone was there waiting for her, and truly, closing the door of her flat behind her, she felt rather than saw who was there.Pressing the button by the wall, light flooded the room and she saw Tom, looking tense and pale.“Hello Tom, how did you get into my flat without a
Snap out of your sorrow… ***** Visibly scared of what might happen to him if he did not snap out of it soon, Martha went on her knees as she grabbed his cheeks with her two hands to force him to meet her gaze. “Tom? Tom, look at me, look at me and get a hold of yourself.” She shouted to get his attention and it was only then Tom glanced up to look into her eyes. “Martha?” He asked with a faint voice. “Yes, yes it’s me, Tom. Oh please Tom, don’t do this to yourself, you must be hurting too much after staying in the cold for several hours.” Martha could feel his pain as he kept trembling. “No, no, there is no pain. I don’t deserve to live when Belina is dead. I killed her, I killed her.” Tom went berserk again and nothing Martha did could make him stop. Confused on what else to do, Martha sat on the fl
Meet the family of the groom… ****** Seated at the back of the limousine with Mike beside her, his chauffeur drove them to the Stanford’s private airport to catch the family’s jet that would take them to Mike’s family home in Birmingham. Liza wet her lips nervously with a pink tongue. Mike noticed the movement. As a matter of fact, he noticed everything including the continuous twisting of the hands on her laps as she kept a sisterly prim expression on her face. Mike could not help but hide a smile! Ever since the night before that he had reminded Liza of their journey to his home to meet his family and also announce their betrothal, she had been acting all godly and primly. She had even told him no sex, not until they come back from their journey. Puzzled, Mike had asked for a reason he should not touch his woman and she had given him that wide look as if she could not believe he had to ask. “Because...because it will be obvious and your mum might not like it. She might
