THE DIAMONDS 2: 23-28
Episode 23 -28
Isn’t that a phone?
I looked at Nina in the face and with the look of things, she had no idea I was aware of it.
It was just vibrating lowly and since the bag was touching my legs, I guessed I was the only one who could feel it.
But….what would Nina be doing with a phone?
Perhaps…I’m feeling the wrong thing. But, its really vibrating like a phone!
I kept wondering as she dragged me along and finally, we got to the entrance of my room.
“Uh…thank you so much, Nina. I’ll just go in and rest now” I told her, sounding really tired.
“Okay, sure. Take care of yourself, okay? I’ll come check up on you later” she replied and scurried off without hesitance.
I stood by the door and watched her vanish.
Why’s she acting cranky, huh? And could there really be a phone in her bag?
“Please….just let me go. I don’t wanna be here” I said fearfully as I pressed my back against the door.
He ticked his tongue and started coming towards me.
“You’re really so stubborn, huh? How was Miquel able to cope with you?” He asked.
My powers….why couldn’t I feel them? What have they done to me?
He got so close to me and I tried running away from the door, but he was fast enough to grip my hand and pull me back.
“Where could you possibly go, Cali? There’s no way you’re leaving this place.
“And now….talking about what I want from you; I think it’s time” he smirked and started pulling me towards the bed.
“No! No! Please, let me go. Let me go!!” I yelled and tried fighting with his hand, but it was fruitless.
We got to the point where the fork he had injured me with was lying on the floor and quickly, I grabbed it from the floor and drove it right into his back.
“Urgh!” He gave a brief grunt and I was able to free my hand from his.
I ran to the door again and tried opening it, but it was d@mn useless.
“Help me!” I cried and slapped my hands against the door.
I didn’t even know what I was doing. How do I think someone would really show up to save me?
Either ways, I continued hitting the door desperately and in tears, but not for long as Mykel caught up with me and turned me away from the door to face me.
Before I could say a word, he landed a heavy slap on my cheek that brought me to my knees.
“Ahh”, I winced and held the cheek.
“You really think you can play brave, huh?” He asked angrily and grabbed my hair, lifting me up with it.
“No! Please” I cried and tried struggling with him, but it didn’t work as he dragged me roughly to the bed and pushed me on it.
Oh my God!
He can’t do this to me.
No; he can’t.
He knelt in front of me on the bed and made sure I couldn’t run away from his grasp.
“Please, don’t do this. Please” I begged but they fell on deaf ears as he started undressing.
He took off his shirt and my eyes dimmed when I discovered he was having almost the same tatt0o as Miquel’s
He unbuckled his belt and in the process, I tried smuggling my way out of him, but he pinned me down and slDapoped me again.
“You’re only causing more pains to yourself, Cali”, he said in an impatient voice and slided his fngers into my sk!rt.
“No! Please. I’m begging you. Don’t do this. I can’t take it. Please” I whimpered with my head moving sideways.
“I’m sorry,,Cali. But I made a promise to Miquel. And I always keep my promises” he replied and got hold of my p*nt.
‘No!!” I shrieked and tried fighting him with my nails.
I was able to give him a scratch on his chest, but it didn’t seem to have much effect on him as he successfully ripped my p*nt off.
“No!! Stop it, please. Please, I’m begging you!” I wept as I felt my whole world shattering.
“What’s so special about it, huh?” He mocked.
“Hasn’t Miquel been down there before?”
He used his left hand to pin my both hands above my head, while he used the other to lift my sk!rt, giving him access to my exposed area.
How could he be this powerful, huh?
“Please….” Was all I could say as I didn’t know what else to do.
He just rendered me vulnerable.
“Stay calm..and it’ll all be over soon” he stated and spread my l*egs apart, coming fully in between them.
“I’m begging you, please. Don’t do this. Don’t do this to me” I cried weakly, shaking my head vigorously.
I couldn’t see what was going on down there, but soon, I felt his hard erction against my h0neyp0t.
“No?!!” I screamed with so much fright, but his grip around me was firm, I couldn’t go free from it.
“Let me go!!” I yelled more and struggled.
Hot tears were already rolling down to my neck.
How can this happen to me, huh?
“Relax, Cali. I’ll be gentle” he said grimly and finally pushed his dck into me.
Oh my gawd!
“No!!!!! Please! Just stop it. Please” I cried profusely.
My voice was beginning to get weak.
Since he was already inside of me, his both hands were free and he used them to pin my own hands above my head so I don’t move.
“Mykel please…..” I whimpered.
He gr0aned a little as he pushed himself deeper and started thru$ting slowly.
Oh my God!
This is really happening to me.
I tapped my head on the bed as excruc!ating pa!ns occupied my entire system.
They weren’t just pains from S*x, but pains from being rdominoss httpswikipedia.org 4476621 and hurt.
How could he do this to me?
He increased his pace gradually and I couldn’t believe someone else was drilling me this way; someone aside Miquel. Someone I knew nothing about.
That was the worst pain.
“I hate you” I mumbled weakly as my eyes shut in tears.
I had stopped struggling cause I knew the deed had already been done.
I’d just been used by a worthless guy.
I felt so restless.
My entire being was crumbling and getting more weak.
I needed to get out of here. I needed to see Cali by all means. I needed to know what was happening.
I couldn’t just stay in here.
“Son”, I heard one of the coordinates call.
Yeah, I could only hear cause there was still a blindfold over my eyes.
I panted heavily and didn’t say a word.
I only wish the chains weren’t poisoned.
“Don’t worry, Miquel. We’ll be home soon enough, okay? And as soon as you sit on the throne, all these would be over” .
She rubbed my hair gently as she spoke.
“I’ll never go voluntarily with you to Korea” I said.
“And you know it’s gonna be impossible taking me all the way, forcefully. Its only going to be a disaster”.
She kept mute for a few seconds.
“Don’t worry, son. The ship will be here soon and we’ll definitely leave together. It might be difficult, yes. But we’ll cross the bridge”.she said hopefully and stopped touching my hair.
Next, I heard footsteps and figured she was walking away.
“We can make a deal” I said out loud and the footsteps stopped.
D@mn it! I wasn’t thinking straight. I just needed a way to get out of here.
I needed a way to see Cali.
“What deal are you talking about?” She asked and I took in a deep breath.
A very deep breath.
“I’ll go with you to Korea – willingly” I began.
“But only on one condition”.
Thank goodness I was able to get away from Diane. I can’t believe she almost delayed me.
I got out to the garbage site, but couldn’t find the truck yet.
D@mn it! Don’t tell me they’ve left already. Or they were yet to arrive?
I moved to an empty and quiet corner and brought my phone out of my bag.
Oh! There was actually a missed call from him.
I quickly dialed it and thankfully, he picked at the second beep.
“Hey! Where the h*ell did you keep your phone?” He asked grumpily.
“It was on silent, okay? Where are you, Davis? I’m on track already” I said impatiently.
“Yeah, stay put. The truck is already on its way. As soon as its putting the dirt in, you jump in as well”
“Okay. But…how close are they? I really need to get out of here already. It won’t be long before they discover Cali’s missing and they might trace investigate and discover I had a hand in it. I really need to get out of here, please” I said desperately.
I was d@mn so scared and nervous.
“Don’t worry, okay? They’ll be there soon” he said and ended the call.
I quickly fixed the phone into my bag and took in a deep breath.
Oh! Please, I really hope this works. I just wanna leave this place.
“Nina?” I suddenly heard my name and froze at the spot.
I turned and caught Diane standing and staring at me with a confused look.
Oh my God!
“You?” She shirked.

There was chaos in the big hall as the board of directors held the meeting.
“How the h*ell did things go wrong??? Miquel was our back up plan. What happened to him?” The manager asked after hitting the table angrily.
“Neither of us have any idea, sir. He just seemed to vanish and hasn’t returned to the institute either” one of the female directors replied.
The tension in the room was just excess.
“Could he be in danger? Its so unusual for Miquel to abandon the mission. He’d never do that”
“Yeah….So, where the fuck is he?? We lost another mission to those animals. What’s happening???” The manager yelled and kicked the table this time around.
Suddenly, a staff came running in.
“Sir! Sir!” She panted heavily and all eyes darted to her direction.
She panted like a lizard being chased.
“What is it, Mona?” One of the female directors asked.
“Its…..its Miquel. He’s back! He just arrived” she stated heavily and all eyes beamed.
Without hesitation, they ran out to him – including the overall manager. It was more like the return of Christ.
They rushed after the staff who were taking them to the location and finally, they got there and found him beside a car, his hand over his tummy.
He looked weak.
“Miquel!!” One of the female directors called and ran to hold him.
Students had gathered all over like a crusade was taking place. Although, they maintained a good distance.
“Miquel! Miquel! Hey; are you alright? What happened to you?” The female director holding him asked.
The others had gotten close as well.
“I’m fine” he said in deep breaths.
‘I need to go to my room first’.
He tried walking away, but was held back by the director.
“Are you after the banshee?” She asked and he stopped to look and nod.
“She’s nowhere in the institute” the manager said and his eyes dropped open in shock.
I wept on the bed with my hands and legs huddled together; the bedhseet was drawn to cover my legs, although I still had my skirt on.
Mykel stood emotionlessly in front of the mirror as he fixed his buttons.
He acted like nothing had happened and there wasn’t a lady crying on his bed.
When he was done with the buttons, he brushed his hair, then turned to look at me.
“Will you stop quivering already? Its not like you’re dead or something” he said with an eye roll as he started coming closer to me.
I kept sniveling as the pains were unbearable. I still couldn’t believe he raped me.
He got to the bed and leaned in front of me.
“You’re a monster” I whimpered, tears dripping from my eyes which were staring at the floor.
“I love it when I’m a monster, you know?” He said with pride, making my anger increase.
He lifted his hand to my face and waved the strands of hair that rested on it.
“The real fun’s yet to begin” he muttered.
I moved my face away from his hand.
“You’ll pay for this” I said loathefully and he chuckled and left the bed.
“See you when I’m back” he winked at me and walked out of the room.
I buried my face on my legs and wept more bitterly.
How could this happen to me? How? What have I done to deserve this?
More agonizing tears streaked my face, recalling how he used me. I felt like ripping my own body off to get rid of his touch.
Shortly, I heard the door open and panicked, wondering why he was back so soon.
I lifted my head to have a look and my heart skipped when I discovered it was Nina.
My jaws dropped in shock as I listened to what she said.
Cali? Nowhere in the institute? Then, where could she be?
“Wh….What’re you talking about? Did you look for her?” I asked, confused. Referring to no one in particular.
“Well, we know how close you are to her. And when you went missing, we decided to send for her if she could, perhaps, have any idea of your whereabouts. We asked the guards to get her, but none of them could. She’s nowhere in the institute” Lisa replied and I felt a sharp pain I my chest.
I asked her to stay indoors. Where could she be? She wouldn’t leave for any reason, right?
And stay out to this time.
“I assigned some guards at her doorpost. They should…”
“We didn’t find any guard. There was no trace at all” one of directors replied.
No; no. Mykel.
Immediately, I fred from their grasp and turned to open the car.
“Miquel. Hey; where are you going?” Lisa asked, but I didn’t reply her as I got into the car and ignited the engines.
It started without stress and took off, driving on the highest speed.
I jumped out of the bed immediately, rage eating me up.
The btch! How dare she show her face to me.
“You animal!” I gnashed my teeth.
“How dare you? How dare you show your ugly face to me?”
I made to grab her hair, but she moved away from me.
“Calm down, Cali. Its me. Its Diane. This isn’t Nina, okay?” She said in a whispering tone and I flinched.
She closed her eyes and instantly, transformed to Diane.
“D….Diane?” I called.
“Yes,,Cali. Its me and we don’t have much time. I just got to know about Nina being the spy less than an hour ago. I overheard her making a phone call and got to know she aided the Black Diãmônds in your abduction.
“She tried to confess me, but I didn’t make it easy for her as we got involved in a heavy fight. Luckily, I was able to knock her out, leaving her really unconscious.
“A truck for picking up trash was meant to carry her along when they arrive, and knowing all these, I decided to use it and come here so I could save you.
“I’d left her phone with her so, just in case someone finds her, she’d be implicated with it and be held prisoner. We don’t have much time, Cali. We need to leave. Now. Look into my eyes and you’ll see I’m telling the truth” she narrated enthusiastically and in a hurry, and all I could do was stare like a bloated goat.
The shock was just excess for me already.
But somehow, I believed her.
“I’m not so sure if I’m a good actress, but..I really hope the guards believed me when I acted like Nina. How’re you Cali? Were you severely hurt?” She asked and I felt a sharp pain in my chest.
I lowered my head and released a tear.
“Oh my God! Cali…” She hushed.
“What happened to you?”
I couldn’t say a word as I just wept silently.
The pains came driving in again
“Please, Diane. Just get me out of here if its possible” I said tearfully and she pulled me in a very brief hug.
We unlocked from the hug and headed for the door.
“Wait” she halted.
“I need to change to Nina. For safety purpose” .
I nodded and she closed her eyes and transformed to Nina again.
“Make sure you stay behind me, okay? And move when I tell you to” she said and I just nodded in agreement.
It wasn’t like I had a choice.
She opened the door slowly and creepily, looked left and right, then turned back to me.
“Come on” she whispered and I followed her out of the room.
I gasped when I found two boys lying on the floor, unconscious.
Huh? Did she really knock them out?
Aside them, the passage was clean and empty and we both started scuttling away, taking fast short steps.
Oh God! Is it really possible to get out of here?
It got to a place where we heard footsteps and we quickly ran and hid behind some cartoons.
I could feel my heart beating rapidly.
The foot sounds died off and we proceeded.
“Do you even know the way out of here?” I whispered.
“Well, I think so. One of the boys had led me to the room” she replied and I kept mute.
We continued running but finally, got busted.
“Nina?” We heard her name from behind and both stop walking.
Oh my God!
“Don’t turn around, Cali” she whispered only to my hearing as the footsteps came closer
I breathed heavily and she turned around to face the person.
“Nina?” He called again.
“When did you arrive?”
“Uh….just a while ago. What’s up?” She replied, trying so hard to be calm.
“Yeah..I’m cool. Who’s that with you, huh?” He asked and I felt my entire system turn.
Holy Molly! I wish this was a dream.
The whole time, my back was turned against the boy.
“She….she’s one of the maids. Come on, maids. We don’t have much time” she said quickly and signalled me to follow her.
“Nina!” His cold voice stopped us again.
We both stopped walking but didn’t turn to look at him.
“I really want to see the maid”.
I hyperventilated as I felt him coming closer.
He walked and finally got to where I was and right there, I felt his hand on my shoulder.
Immediately, I turned to look at him with a heavy punch landing on his nose.
“Urgh!!” I groaned as I felt the effect of the punch on my fist.
He moaned and held his nose and I kicked him right there – betwixt his thighs.
“Come on, Cali!” Diane yelled and we started running.
Yeah – this time around, we ran.
“The banshee has escaped!!” The animal yelled from behind and Diane and I fastened our pace.
We ran pass so many passages, taking different corners and before you knew it, uncountable guards started chasing after us from different angles.
“Hurry, Cali!” Diane said as she ran ahead of me.
And I tried my best to do same.
Suddenly, there was a gunshot and I froze when I saw Diane tripping to the floor.
Oh my God!
My eyes dilated in shock and looked like they were gonna pop out of their sockets.
My mouth dropped open and I ran to her immediately, just before she’d reach the floor.
“Diane??” I called, placing her head on my legs.
More gun shots filled the air and I felt an uncontrollable pile occupy my chest.
With an angry force, I looked up at the ceiling and screamed.
I couldn’t differentiate the sounds, but instantly, I felt the walls and ceilings crumble.
They all collapsed.
Luckily, the ceilings and walls didn’t fall on Diane and I, but it did to the guards coming from all directions.
They collapsed together with them.
I could feel them. They’re back.
“Cali….” Diane called weakly and I looked at her to see she’d transformed to her real self.
I checked the injury and discovered she was shot on the side of her tummy.
“Hey; you’ll be fine, okay? You’ll be fine. Come on” I said and lifted her up along with me.
She groaned and held the bleeding part and it hurt me so much.
I threw my hand over her shoulders and supported her and we started trudging together.
We walked as fast as we could
Diane pointing out directions to me.
G0sh! I just prayed she was sure.
The institute was quite big.
Suddenly, we heard more gun shots and rolled to the floor.
“Urgh!” Diane groaned and held her tummy and I crawled to where she was.
Luckily, I spotted an elevator right in front of us.
“Diane; Diane;” I tapped her.
“You need to hold on tight, okay? There’s an elevator and I’m reaching for it”.
She just nodded and I looked back at the guards who were fast approaching.
With a full force, I dragged Diane on her feet and ran towards the elevator.
The gun shots came with a mighty force, but I didn’t let it stop me as I screamed and finally jumped in with Diane.
I pressed the button for the second floor and the door closed up immediately, just at the right time.
“Oh my God!” I heard Diane grumble and turned to see her leaning back against the wall with her eyes on the floor.
I ran and knelt in front of her immediately.
“Just hold on, Diane. We’ll be out of here before you know it”I said reassuringly as I stroke her hair.
God! Please, help us get out of here.
My heart beat rapidly as the elevator kept moving and I wondered who we were gonna face out there once it landed.
Suddenly, a question flashed through my mind and I looked at Diane.
“Diane” I called, my voice coming out more cold now.
“How’s Miquel? Is….Is he safe?”
Although, she’d been weak, but I could tell she got weaker when I asked that question.
She didn’t say a word but just looked at me.
“Diane?” I called again
“Wh….What’s wrong? Where’s Miquel?”
She took in a deep breath.
“I don’t know, Cali. We couldn’t find him during the course of the mission. We have no idea what happened to him” she replied and I heard a loud bang in my head
A blaring sound cane driving in that it affected my heart.
Miquel? What happened to him?
The elevator door opened immediately and Mykel’s words came driving in at the same time:
*He’s never coming back. He’s gone*
That’s a lie.
Tears built up in my eyes, I’d forgotten the elevator was open.
“Cali” Diane jolted me out of my rueful thoughts and I looked at her.
“You should leave without me. I’m only slowing you down. Go on” she said and I scoffed out tears.
“What’re you saying?” I asked, holding her hair.
We heard running footsteps and I turned to see some guards running towards us.
“Cali…” She called and I looked at her.
“You came here to save me, Diane. And if we’re leaving, we leave together” I told her and stood on my feet afterwards.
I faced the direction of the armed guards and pointing my hands towards them, I let out a loud scream.
They tried aiming their guns at me, but the effect of my scream got to them first and swept them off their feet.
I ran back to Diane and helped her from the floor.
“Come on” I mumbled and started walking out with her.
We got out of the elevator, used an exit that we saw and came out to an open field.
How do we leave? The walls were soo tall and looked electrified and clearly, there was no way one could climb out of it.
And the gates….that was totally out of point.
The area looked dark and quiet and I bet not everyone had been alerted of my absence.
Suddenly, an idea popped into my head.
I quickly made Diane sit on the floor, then faced the wall.
Oh God! This might be the height of it.
Can I break such walls?
I took in a deep breath and pointed my hands towards the wall and immediately, let out a mighty scream.
It was so loud, I could feel my lungs ache.
But all of it didn’t matter as I found the walls crumble right in front of my very eyes.
It fell apart!!!
And there was an open space to the other side.
Oh my God!! It worked!!!
I gasped and looked at Diane and she had a weak smile on her face.
This was more than victorious.
“We did it, Diane. We’ll be out of here” I smiled happily to her and quickly helped her from the floor. .
She held onto me as usual for support and without further hesitation, we ran out through the broken space.
Oh God! I just hope they don’t come after us.
I continued running with her, struggling with the dark bushes and grasses. I didn’t even know where I was headed. The entire place was just dark.
“Hold onto me, Diane. Please” I pleaded as could feel her grip becoming too weak.
“We’re almost there” I panted.
How do we even get out of here? Where could we get a cab? Or someone?
We continued running, but suddenly, she fell off my shoulders and landed on the floor.
“Diane!” I called out and rushed to her.
Oh my God!
“I’m sorry, Cali. But I can’t make it. I can’t walk anymore. You’ll just have to go on without me” she said weakly and in faint breaths.
“No, Diane. I’m not leaving you. I’m not leaving you, okay? We’re in this together” I stated ruefully, tears streaming down my cheeks.
“Please Diane. Just hold on a little bit longer’.
She shook her head and didn’t say a word and I busted into more tears.
“I….I know what to do” I suddenly said.
“Just….stay here, okay? I’ll go get some help.
“Please, Diane. Stay here, I beg you. Keep your eyes open. I’ll be back, okay?” I told her and she nodded.
I sniffed and stood up and immediately, began running as fast as I could.
My heart was aching so bad.
First, Mykel’s brutal treatment towards me. And Diane being shot. And getting to know Miquel was missing.
Oh God! What’s happening to me?
I wept profusely and finally, I spotted the road.
“Oh my!” I panted heavily.
I found it!
I found the road!
Oh my God!
I saw a car coming at a cr@zy speed and without hesitation, I ran to the side of the road and started jumping and waving at it to stop.
God! Please, please. Just make him stop.
Tears rolled down to my neck and for Christ sake, the car stopped right in front of me.
I whimpered and ran towards it but my eyes dimmed when I saw the driver – a familiar face that stepped out of the car.
Oh my God!
“Miquel?” I called in shock, my eyes beaming.
“Cali?” He also called in deep breaths.
Please, don’t tell me I’m dreaming.
I wasn’t dreaming. There’s noway I could be dreaming.
It was him;
He was standing right in front of me. Staring at me.
“Miquel?” I called again, a little quiver in my voice.
A tear dropped from my eye and immediately, I ran into his arms.
“Miquel!” I squealed as I hugged him tight, wrapping my hands and legs around him.
G0sh! I couldn’t believe this.
“Cali” he cooed as he wrapped his hand around my waist.
I just couldn’t believe this. It was more than a dream come true.
What happened to him? They said he was gone, right?
I thought I was never gonna see him again.
“Cali; hey, Cali. Are you alright? Wh…..What happened to you? Were you hurt?” He asked as he pulled me away from the hug to look into my face.
I held the tip of his shirt and wept.
The pains came driving in real bad.
“Diane..”, I whimpered, trying to talk about something else.
“She’s hurt, Miquel. She….She was shot. We need to save her, please”.
He stared at me and probably thought Duane was the only reason I was crying.
I bent my head but he cupped my cheeks and lifted it up.
“Cali” he called softly.
“Were you kidnapped…by Mykel?” He asked and I felt my heart skip as I nodded tearfully.
He didn’t say a word and I looked into his eyes.
“Please Miquel. Just get me out of here. Diane….we need to save her, please” I whimpered but he still didn’t say a word.
Oh God! Please, don’t tell me he’s getting angry already. This isn’t the right time to get angry.
“Come on” he signalled on me follow him into the car and I did.
I sat in front of Diane who laid quietly on the bed.
We were back at the institute and she was being treated at the clinic.
“You feel better, huh?” I asked her, my hand on the edge of the bed.
“Yeah” she smiled faintly.
A nurse was fixing drip on her.
“Any news on Nina? Was she captured?” She asked.
“Yeah, she was. I heard she’s currently locked up” I told her and noticed a look of relief on her face.
“Diane” I called after a pause and she looked at me.
“Why did you do it?
Why did you risk your life to save me?”
She smiled and stared up at the ceiling.
“Well…maybe because I wanted to turn you to a mosquito” she said and laughed and I laughed with her.
“Thank you, Diane” I said after the laughter.
“It means a lot to me”
She didn’t say a word but just smiled and I could tell she was feeling dizzy.
“I’ll leave you to get some sleep. Take care of yourself, okay?” I told her.
“Yeah..sure. Thanks” I tapped her hand before standing up.
I walked out to the door and found Miquel’s guard – Zack – still waiting for me.
Well, Miquel had assigned him to stay with me.
“Going back to the room?” He asked and I thought for a while.
Miquel wasn’t there.
“Take me to Miquel” I told him and he nodded and started walking away while I followed.
It was so dark already and only few students could be spotted around.
We continued walking for a long time and finally, he stopped at the entrance of a building.
“He’s in there – with the spy” He said and I peeped inside.
Oh! Nina was there? The btch?
I sighed and decided to go in for a look.
And as I walked in, I found her right there in the middle, tied like an animal.
Her hands were tied on both sides and her legs didn’t touch the floor.
She probably heard footsteps and lifted her head to look at me.
“Cali…” She called fraily.
She looked so weak and pathetic.
I stared at her and felt anger rise in me, recalling what I went through because of her.
Miquel wasn’t in the room.
I kept walking but stopped when I’d gotten close enough – close enough to slap her -_ cause I did.
I gave her a resounding slap.
“How dare you, Nina?” I asked tearfully.
“How dare you?
“I thought you were a friend? I trusted you when no one else did. I loved you when you felt the whole world was against you. I took you like a friend. But what did you do, btch? You betrayed me!! You were only a wolf in sheep clothing! You animal!” I rasped and hit her again, recalling everything that m0nster – Mykel – did to me.
The memories brought more tears to my eyes.
“I hate you, Nina. And I regret the first day I set my eyes on you”.
“I’m sorry, Cali” she whimpered.
“I didn’t mean to do it”.
I glared at her and just then, heard footsteps from behind and I turned to see it was Miquel and his guards.
He had his eyes fixed on Nina as he walked in.
“Zack” he called without looking at him.
“Yes, boss” the guard replied.
“Escort Cali to the room”. He instructed.
His eyes were so cold as he stared at Nina.
“Okay, boss” the guard replied and came to me.
I continued staring at Miquel, but he didn’t even blink or make any attempt to look at me.
“Cali, please” Nina wept.
“I’m sorry. Don’t let them hurt me, please”.
I turned to look at her and she was in tears.
“What’re you waiting for, Zack? Take her away” Miquel said icily and the guard held my hand .
“Hey; come on” he hushed and started leading me away.
“Cali, please!!!” Nina shirked.
“I’m begging you, please! Give me another chance!”
More tears streamed down my cheeks as I walked away and tried not to look at her.
“Cali!!” She continued wailing and finally, I got out of the building and took a deep breath.
“Come on, Cali” Zack said, urging me to continue walking with him.
I sniffed and wiped my face before proceeding.
“Nooooooooooooo!!!” I suddenly heard Nina scream and I turned in fright to look back at the building.
Oh my God! What’s going on there?
“Come on, Cali. You shouldn’t be out here” Zack tapped me, bringing me out of my fright.
She screamed again and I flinched.
I really needed to get out of here.
I turned to Zack and we continued walking and this time around, my pace was faster.
I just wanted to be away from the scene.
We finally got to the room and he stood outside the door while I went in.
As soon as I got in, I sat on the bed and buried my face in my palms – in tears.
Why did this have to happen, huh? Why?
I wept for a long time and finally decided to clean up in the bathroom.
I got in, took off my clothes and laid in the soapy bath tub.
As the cold water touched my private area, I suddenly recalled all Mykel had done to me – how he used me mercilessly – beat me up and rdominoss httpswikipedia.org 4476621 me. I still couldn’t believe such unfortunate circumstance could befall me.
I closed my eyes as my tears got mixed with the water. It was so hurtful – so hurtful.
How do I get rid of this feeling?
Suddenly, I heard the door open and opened my eyes to see Miquel walking in and I panicked a little.
He had a bloodstain on his shirt.
I twitched and buried myself deeper into the foamy water. And thank goodness it covered me enough.
“Hey” he called calmly and sat on the edge of the tub, facing me.
Good lord! I could see so much hate in his eyes.
“H…hi” I said in a cracked voice and gulped anxiously.
He stared at my face for a while without saying a word and slowly, he dipped his hand into the water.
“Cali” he called.
“Can I ask you a question?”
I just nodded.
My heart raced so fast. Why do I have a feeling he might ask me about it?
“When I’d found you” he began.
“Why weren’t you putting on a p*nt?”
Oh my God! Whaaaat???
I felt my lungs become dry as I stared blankly at him.
Why on earth would he ask me such question?? Is he for real??
“I’m waiting, Cali” he said and his voice sent cold chills down my spine.
“What happened to it?”
“N…Nothing. I just…” I paused and gulped nervously.
“I just took it off when….I was locked up and felt really hot. I mean.
“Its nothing, Miquel. Please,believe me” I concluded tiredly, when I discovered I was out of excuses.
“What did he do to you?” He asked as he moved his finger to touch my lips.
There was a little cut there.
“He hurt you, didn’t he?”
Oh God! I couldn’t tell him about the rDapoe part.
What if he gets so mad at me? Or…or does something really cr@zy?
Or what if I suddenly disgust him? And he wouldn’t wanna touch me anymore? That’d make everything pretty worse.
“He…he’d only beaten me up, Miquel. But I’m fine now” I said anxiously, just wishing he’d change the topic.
“Did he touch you?” He asked, staring directly into my face.
I could feel my intestines turning.
That look from him…it was so deadly.
I shook my head and came out of the water to hug him.
My big b**bs pressed hard against his chest.
“Please Miquel. We’re together now and thats all that matters. Mykel….Mykel didn’t touch me. He just….he didn’t succeed.
“Please Miquel; I don’t wanna think about anything else aside you right now. Please”.
I rested my head on his shoulders and he held my back.
He took in a deep breath and carried me completely from the tub, going into the bedroom.
I felt so relieved as he held me in his arms, but somehow, his touch around my waist reminded me of Mykel and what he did to me.
We got into the room and he laid me gently on the bed, even with the fact I was dripping wet.
“Your shirt….its bloody” I pointed out to him and he sighed.
He pulled off the shirt and threw it on the floor.
“I’ll be taking a shower soon” he said as he joined me on the bed, lying very close to me.
He made my head rest on his chest, while he wrapped his hand around me.
“When? Why not now?” I asked.
“Don’t worry. I wanna cuddle you to sleep first” he replied and I smiled lightly.
Oh God! I hope nothing comes between us again. I can’t afford losing him.
“Do you need anything?” He asked after a little pause and I just shook my head.
All I needed was a good sleep.
He kept stroking my hair gently the whole time and finally, I slept off.
I woke up the next morning to behold Miquel staring into my face.
“Hey” he cooed and touched my hair.
I smiled and nodded.
Why was he just staring at me, huh?
“Good morning” I greeted lightly.
“Yeah…hope you slept well?” He asked and I nodded.
He pecked me on the hair and stood up.
“Breakfast is ready. You should freshen up and eat” he said as he walked away to the dining.
I was still stMarkMonaco n@ked but covered with the duvet and unable to walk around n@ked, I stood up with the duvet.
Miquel focused on the dining, while I walked into the bathroom.
I took in a long deep breath.
I brushed my teeth,took a quick shower and returned to the room with a white t0wel around me this time around.
And I met Miquel already sitting and waiting at the dining.
“Hurry up. Its getting cold” he said and I hastened my steps to meet him.
He’d already dished out my meal and I took a seat opposite him and began eating.
“Its um….delicious” I complimented and he just smiled.
Well, I guessed he wasn’t entirely moved by compliments.
“Miquel” I called after a while.
“What happened to Nina?”
He paused and looked at me.
“And….why’re you concerned about her?” He asked coldly.
“Nothing. I just….”
I paused and sighed.
“I just felt i should know”.
“Well…she should be the least of your concern. Don’t worry about her” he replied and I just nodded to prevent further prolonging.
“Go on. Hurry up and eat more” he urged and I continued eating.
I ate to my satisfaction and when we were done, he cleared the table even after I insisted.
I went out to the balcony to have some air and a clean view. And shortly, he joined me.
“Would you love to go out later in the day? For some…maybe ice cream?” He asked as he stood beside me and I felt my heart play jingle bells.
“Well, of course. That’d be nice” I replied ecst@tically.
I really needed something to clear my head.
We remained silent for a while, just staring into space. But shortly, he came up behind me and wrapped his hands around my waist.
“How do you feel now?” He asked whisperingly into my ears, making me shiver a bit.
His breath was so cold.
“I’m….I’m fine now. I feel so much better” I replied him and he smiled and kssed my neck.
I was still tying just a towel and slowly, he sent his hands into it and rubbed my bare tummy.
“Why don’t we go inside, huh? Don’t you feel cold?” He asked, but I didn’t respond.
He planted hickeys all over my neck and lifted his hands slowly from my tummy – down to my b**bs.
I m0aned a little as he squeezed them.
“Come on” he hushed and carried me up like a baby.
I felt my heart thump so fast as he took me into the room and laid me gently on the b*ed.
My t0wel fell freely.
Oh God! I wasn’t ready for this.
He smiled lightly as he climbed the bed and crawled into my legs.
And just like a hungry lion, he started feasting on my b**bs.
“Miquel….” I shut my eyes and m0aned as it t!ngled me.
He used his free hand to spread my l*egs wider and it suddenly made me remembered Mykel.
How he slapped me,and pinned himself on me.
Miquel’s touch and breath on me just made me remember every single thing and tears formed up in my eyes.
*Stop it! Please!!*, I could remember crying and begging him.
*Please, I’m begging you, don’t do this. I can’t take it*
I could remember him hitting me so hard on the face before he tore my p*nt.
*Let me go!!*
Miquel was already touching my h0neyp0t, about to fnger me and I didn’t realize when I pushed his hand away.
“Let me go!!! Please!”,I cried out, thinking it was still part of my imaginations.
“Please, just stop it. Please. I can’t take it. Please. Let me go” I cried profusely and unconsciously.
Miquel had already stopped and was staring into my face.
“Cali?” He called and tapped me and as soon as I opened my teary eyes, I realized I’d been saying it all out.
Oh my God!
Tears were already rolling down my neck and I sniffed and wiped it off.
“I’m….I’m sorry, Miquel. I’m just….I’m really tired. Can we do this some other time, please?” I said weakly and found my way out of his grasp.
I tied the towel around my body and left the bed and was on my way to the bathroom, when his voice stopped me:
“He did it, didn’t he?”
I stopped walking but didn’t turn to look at him.
I preferred backing him in that state.
“Mykel….” He called and I felt him leave the bed.
“He forced himself on you. Didn’t he?”
My legs became so weak and heavy. I could feel every muscle in my body shake.
“What’re you talking about, Miquel?” I tried to cover it up with a chuckle.
“I’m….I’m just stressed. All I need is some rest and I’ll be fine”.
He walked up from behind and came to stand in front of me. I couldn’t even look him in the eyes.
“Please Cali” he said.
“I beg you with the name of everything you believe in, don’t lie to me”.
There was a little waver in his voice as he spoke and I didn’t realize when I busted into uncontrollable tears.
Oh my God!
“I tried to stop him” I whimpered hurtfully, my voice shaking.
“I tried to stop him, Miquel. I swear. I did all I could, But he didn’t listen. He….he was just too powerful for me. I couldn’t fight him. I’m so sorry”.
I bent my head and wept bitterly. The pains came driving in as I remembered every bit of it. I just couldn’t control it.
I couldn’t recall the last time I’d cried this much. It was so painful.
Miquel….he didn’t say a word. But not until I saw a blood drop on the floor.
I quickly lifted my head to look at him and panicked when I saw bl ood dripping down his nose.
