Part of her was scared to even look, she closed her eyes as she kicked the door open, usually Lola slept without locking the doors but even if they were locked, she was prepared to break those locks. The door flung open so freely that it would definitely have sent anyone standing behind it flying across the room but luckily that didn’t happen, Lola who was safely tucked in bed alone screamed and jumped out of bed when her door flung open, after few seconds of endless screaming, she suddenly realised it was her sister that busted into her room and calmed down.
Luckily, her screams hadn’t woken Jojo. “Lara what is this all about?” She asked in annoyance, she always addressed her sister on a first name basis even though there was a 10 year age gap between them and their parents had insisted she add the prefix “Sister” whenever she called her sister’s name, “it’s nothing just go back to bed” Lara replied turning to leave after scanning the room properly to be sure that Jeff wasn’t hiding in a corner.
“Nothing? And you barged into my room at this unholy hour?” She asked, it was obvious she was very angry about the rude awakening. “It’s fine, go back to bed” Lara replied shutting the door behind her. That was the only place left to check in the house and Jeff wasn’t there. “Where could he be?” She thought as She ran back to her room to get her phone to call him but his phones were switched off. She decided to go outside to check that his car was parked outside and that was when she realised that he had left the house.
She couldn’t think of where he could have possibly gone and why he had to leave without letting her know, she was getting increasingly worried as she sat in the living room forcing herself to watch tv in between trying to dial his number over a hundred times to see if it would ring while she waited for him to return home.
Finally, at 5am she was suddenly awoken by the sound of the entrance door creaking open, she was so tired that she had eventually managed to fall asleep on the couch while she attempted to watch tv during the anxious wait.
“Jeff where have you been?” She asked running to the door to meet him, “why didn’t you tell me you were leaving the house?” She questioned further as he ignored her and walked in. She perceived the stench of alcohol in his breath as he staggered past her, apparently, he had gone out to drink and returned home almost drunk.
She was left standing at the door in total shock, all the years she had known him, he had never for once tolerated drinking a bottle of beer, let alone indulge in hot drinks and now he had come home drunk, wreaking of alcohol and staggering into the house. It was clear he wasn’t handling his job loss well and she had to do something about it before he ruined himself.
“Wait!” She called out to him, chasing him up the stairs after she had locked the door, “you haven’t answered my question.”
He ignored her and continued to walk up the stairs till he got to the room and slammed the door behind him. Slamming doors seemed to have become one of his new habits in the past few hours.
“You’ve been acting strange since you got back from work” she said when she was finally in the room with him, “I understand that you just lost your job, but don’t you think you’re taking this a little too far?” She asked walking up to him. He ignored her and continued taking off his clothes till he was left in just his boxers. “Where are you coming from?” She asked standing in front of him with her arms akimbo, he pretended not to hear her and picked his phone to switch it on. “I’m still talking” she said snatching the phone out of his hands and flinging it on the bed. Almost immediately, she felt Jeff’s palms land on her face in a resounding slap. “Ouch” she screamed holding her face with her mouth open in shock, “you just slapped me!” She exclaimed still shocked at what happened.
Jeff had never raised as much as a finger to hurt her ever before, not even when she did the most annoying things to him. She was still trying to get over the fact that she had just been slapped and there were annoying loud ringing sounds in her ear as a result of the thunderous slap she had just received when he dragged her by the hand and pushed her onto the bed.
“What are you doing?” She asked as she watched him take off his boxers, he ignored her and pounced on top of her pulling off her clothes, “I’m not in the mood for this” she argued struggling to get away from beneath him, “keep quiet” he shouted hitting her a second time and pulling her last piece of clothing off as her thrust himself inside her forcefully while fondling her large breasts.
Lara couldn’t understand how someone so loving could suddenly become a monster overnight, he handled her so roughly, it hurt. She had never been handled that way before, not by him or any other man.
If anyone had told her this would happen one day, she wouldn’t have hesitated to reign all sorts of curses on them.
She closed her eyes hoping that he would reach his climax and stop; the more he continued, the more painful it felt for her, “Jeff you’re hurting me” she said, lying helplessly on the bed as he panted like a mad dog while repeatedly thrusting himself deeper and squeezing her back side, “shut up” he shouted, spreading her legs further apart, “you belong to me and I can have you whenever I want.”
Tears began to flow from her eyes as she stared at the stranger pleasuring himself on top of her, “this is not my husband” she thought, “I don’t know who you are” she suddenly screamed pushing him away, “but I don’t like you. I want my husband back” she shouted. Jeff became enraged, he hated to be interrupted during his pleasurable moments and he had always told her; he looked around the room for the sharpest object he could lay his hands on then he spotted a pair of giant scissors on the table and grabbed it charging towards her, “Please don’t hurt me” she screamed, running to the bathroom with him following behind pointing the scissors at her, she realised that she had made the wrong decision while she panicked, she had thought she’d be able to lock herself inside the bathroom before Jeff could get to her but now she was stuck in the bathroom with him pointing a scissors, ready to harm her.
“I’m sorry” she said standing against the wall naked as Jeff moved slowly towards her, “please don’t do anything crazy” she begged shutting her eyes in fear…
