Bleeding Petals - Episode 14

Alas!

See all episodes here »

This episode is dedicated to all the first timers who commented in the last episode, also to my friend Azeezat who complained of giving her heart attack and also to my friend Omolayo who is a silent reader and always proud of me.

**************** *************

For a minute, nobody spoke. I remembered I had told Felix to come and meet me once he hears no feedback from me incase Henry tries to do something stupid.

Henry smiled painfully and sat on the settee looking at the both of us…

“You…you Felix..you have ruined me!” I managed to say as I was too weak o say anything else . I just went down on my knees. My heart was breaking so fast and so heavily as I realized the gravity of what I just did.

“You raped Benita…you lied to me…you…you took advantage of me….”

Felix was quiet. He also wasn’t looking sober though he seemed  surprised.

“Babe, you should not have gone to Kano! You should have told me first!”

I couldn’t believe my ears , I just wished I could die that moment as I looked at Henry who was only looking at us quietly.

“Henry…” I started, crying profusely. “I am so sorry….”

Henry smiled

. “ I loved you. I took care of you. You just..just threw it all away as you allowed yourself to be misguided by your own fair and past affair…” He was talking as if he had no strength left. I walked closer and held his hand.

“I am sorry, please forgive me…he deceived me! Please Henry …”

He yanked his hand away.

Read " Broken-Broken " by the same author ( Tobi Loba )

. “Forgive? There is no forgiveness in this! You made it quite clear when you jumped into bed with Felix and you sealed your own fate. Both of you are dead to me…you deserve each other…”

He stood up, placing his hands on his doom. “You cheated” He was crying and shouting. “I loved you but you cheated on me! You didn’t trust me”

“Henry please. I know I messed up but please it wasn’t my fault…please…”

“You ruined us! I was willing to wait for you! The next thing you did was to jump into bed with that bastard! You have ruined us! I loved you! I did everything for you! I never bothered you with sex! You ruined us!” He was shaking and crying profusely now…

Even though I pleaded and pleaded, it was of no use. Out of shame and guilt, I left and reported the rape and murder to the police. Felix was arrested and taken to jail. Musa was nowhere to be found after he had successfully ruined me…but did he actually ruin me or I ruined myself?

Here I am two years later telling my own story . I am still here picking back the pieces of what is left of my life. Last week I learnt that Henry got married in Georgia and his wife gave birth to twins. He had left shortly after the whole saga between us…

I am not telling this story so you can laugh at me or you can judge me, I know I am at fault and I know I made a terrible mistake but I am saying all these so that you can learn from my mistake of jumping into conclusion without full investigation, my mistake of not trusting my husband who loved me unconditionally, the mistake of allowing my past to mess with my present and ruining my future.

I have had my own share of fate and I do hope my life will return to normal after this….pray for me…..

 

Bleeding 

Petal

Pulverized

It lays translucent.

Once Virginal white

Now stained with impure grey.

It’s smoothness

Destroyed

By abrading gravel.

Stray foot falls,

Imprint it further.

Surviving buds

Not yet fallen,

Shed dew drops of sorrow

For petals lost.

(Martine August 2011)

    Nice story from a very excellent writer filled with morals, some of which I learnt are; don't hide secrets at all however little,don't make hasty decisions when angry, and finally cut off every ties you might have with your EX especially when you are married.

    My instinct never fails me, I knew immediately Felix came into the picture all dashing and smoove that this incredulous Tola is bound to disappoint me and she did soo perfectly. Sighs, thanks jare Tobi na u try pass

    Well done Tobi! Rape is evil and cruel, esp to the poor girl Benita, bright and the hope of her family. I also understand that Musa was devasted
  • Emash picture
    Emash
    ......I understand that musa was devastated, it hurts, he was pained, fine. Aside Felix the main culprit (a jealous beast) , Musa is another key person to blame. He was in haste to get justice and he chose to get it by himself, so where did d other diary surface from? It wd have been better if he had prosecuted Henry based on the first diary, eventually d truth would come out. But no he js had to get justice by raping another innocent person like his sister. D best pay back, was to make henry "confess" or hand him over to d law, n end his day of bliss and watch him suffer. Again, Musa should suffer xos he has used his own suffering to put other people in pain. Now to Tola, na wa, u js right bk with a guy ntvjs a any guy, ur fiance u caught cheating on u, after all d yrs, he is giving lame excuse of u not hearing him out, dt it wasn't easy so he had to do it, I c. Did u tie his legs, if he cent wait for u why agree to date u and engage u? In ur small mind, d best way to be healed sexually is to get intimate wt ur cheating ex. Tola, did u not know that despite d fact that u lost ur Virginity to a rapist, as far as an concerned d next time u have sex if consider ur first? So wot was d essence of all the yrs of waiting. A real man, wd have wanted u to really heal emotionally before being wt u. BT like u said, u removed ur clothes and he js did it, yl ur hubby sees u al the time in d house and stil respects ur wish. Anyway tough luck! But it's not over, u can stil start afresh by starting wt God only him can feel the vaccum. Henry I am so happy for u and ur family, true u behaved cowardly, u fled the scene(wt our 9ja police, na die bfor investigation), then u refused to file the rape case to cover for ursef, butvthank God u were vindicated. I know u have learnt wot secrecy can cause. To Felix, ur suffering js began. To our male corp members be careful out there, set boundaries, some many assumptions with these naive girls. Do ur work and go home o or where ever. Thanks Signed Tobi's Chief Writer - in - editor

    Hmm, this is serious o!
