IN THE DARK
SEASON 2 EPISODE 8
It was a week after Nelly’s death but it still felt like yesterday. I had resumed work but i was not active. Daily from work, i would go to the stanleys to console nelly’s mom. My presence always console her. She would ask me to sit on her lap and tell me things about nelly, sometimes she would cry and sometimes she would laugh, it all depend on her mood. I made myself available to the stanleys the more since that was the least i could do for them.
After the stanley’s residence, i would go and check on Jordan occasionally but whenever i leave the stanleys lately i would place a call through to Jordan. I tried to be strong, though i was weak inside. I wanted to be there for everybody.
Work was becoming more hectic. The overhead bridge my crew and i presented report on months ago was completed and the president was invited to commission the bridge. My crew and I were to cover the event for our television station in two days time. I had alot at hand, my work needed me, the stanleys needed me and Jordan needed me the most.
I was bussy checking the materials we would be needing for the event when the my phone started to ring. The caller I.D was “Maami” that was what i saved Jordan’s mom number with. I hurriedly excused myself and accepted the call. I answered the call and said “Hello”. “My dear, where are you? I do not know what is wrong with Jordan, he has been drinking and playing sorrowful music indoor since day break. He is taking nelly’s death too hard on himself and i have tried to talk to him but he would’nt listen. The thing is There is somewhere i have to be now, i do not know who else to call apart from you. Please my daughter,come over and look after him” Jordan’s mom said. I was scared of what Jordan might do to himself. I told his mom i would be there in ten minutes and i rushed back to the office. I took permission from Mr.larry who was my department head and i rushed to Jordan’s house.
I met Jordan’s mom fully dressed in the living room. She was happy to see me,she hugged me and told me how sad Jordan had been ever since nelly died, she pleaded with me to take care of her child and i promised her to do my best. Jordan’s mom left and i head to his room.
I WOULD TELL YOU THAT
I LOVE YOU TONIGHT
BUT I KNOW THAT I’VE
GOT TIME ON MY SIDE
WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
WHY ARE YOU LEAVING SO SOON?
IS THERE SOMEWHERE ELSE
BETTER FOR YOU?
WHAT IS LOVE, IF YOU ARE NOT HERE WITH ME?
WHAT IS LOVE, IF IT’S NOT
WHAT IS LOVE, IF IT’S JUST
UPS AND LEAVES?
WHAT IS LOVE IF YOU ARE
NOT HERE NO MORE?
WHAT IS LOVE, IF YOU ARE NOT
WHAT IS LOVE?
WHAT IS LOVE?
(Veronica Bozeman – Empire)
That was the song Jordan was playing loudly in his room.The lyrics of the song hit me and a tear rolled down my cheek as i remembered my lost as well.I cleaned my eyes and composed myself. “I have to be strong, to console Jordan” i said to myself.
I opened the door and entered into his room.Jordan was sitted on the floor, backing the door and he had a bottle of alcoholic drink in his hand.I could not help but feel pity for Jordan, he must have been very close with Nelly for the past six years and now, she is gone.
I tried to take the bottle from Jordan’s hand from behind but he tightened his grip on the bottle and he said “Mom go away, i will be fine”.I shook my head and said “Its me”.Jordan turned back and looked at me, he released the bottle and stoodup. He laid on his bed and faced the wall.I paused the music player and i went to Jordan in bed.I touched him and said “Why are you doing this to yourself? You ought to be strong for her, you are breaking my heart this way. Please pull yourself together Jordan! Be strong for me! For nelly and even for the parent she left behind”.
He faced the ceiling, cleared his throat and said “TELL MYSELF I WOULD’NT CRY
WHEN YOU ARE GONE
BUT I KNOW ITS EASIER SAID
LOOKED AT ME, LOOK AT ME
CHOKED UP NOW
TRY TO TELL YOU BUT IT
WON’T COME OUT.
WHAT IS LOVE IF YOU ARE
NOT HERE WITH ME?
WHAT IS LOVE IF IT’S NOT GUARANTEED?
WHAT IS LOVE IF IT’S JUST
UPS AND LEAVES?
WHAT IS LOVR IF YOU’RE NOT
HERE NO MORE?
WHAT IS LOVE IF YOU ARE
NOT REALLY SURE?
WHAT IS LOVE?
WHAT IS LOVE??”
Jordan sang again and cried.I was confused on what to do.I buried my face in my palms and cried. Jordan sat properly on bed and shouted “She was closer to me than anything! She was like a sister! A blood sister.Why are you all complaining because I am mourning my lost?Can’t i just mourn her for a year? I would’nt mind mourning her for the rest of my life because she was there for me through thick and thin! I promised to make her happy but i could not fulfil my promise.I did nothing for her but she did everything for me. Everything!”
i closed my eyes and cried, i was l loosing him to nelly, even in death.
I looked at Jordan with tears in my eyes and i said “So you want to mourn her forever? You want to leave everybody behind because of nelly? You want to ignore all people that love you? You want to put a stop to our love? The love it took us this long to nurture? Jordan tell me!. Look into my eyes and tell me you do not need me no more! Go on, tell me you want to mourn her till eternity. Tell me to leave instead of showing your weakness to me. Jordan just say it!” I shouted. I fixed my gaze on Jordan for a long time, waiting for an answer. He did not reply he only climbed down from the bed and sat on the couch. I was loosing it, i was at the point of giving up on love, i could not bare to loose Jordan because of nelly again.
Words could not express how angry i was at Jordan, to avoid further mess i had to take my leave, not minding the fact that i was disobeying Jordan’s mom. “I dO not give a Bleep about the mother and son”. I said.
I wiped my tears and picked up my bag. I grabbed my phone and made for the door. “Dont leave” i heard Jordan say just when i was about to open the door. I stood rooted to a point without turning back. Jordan walked up to me and held me from behind. He leaned his head on my shoulder and said “Am so confuse right now sun shine, i just need you to stay with me baby. Please don’t leave me”
Jordan words made alot of meaning to me, i realised he was just confused and walking away would have been a huge mistake. I turned back and faced Jordan with my back on the door. I held his face and said “I know your heart is saddened because of Nelly’s death, but i need you to let me make you feel better. Tell me what is love if am not really sure of how you feel? I need to be sure baby, I just wanna be sure”. Jordan sighed and looked into my eyes. He smilled weakly and said “You want to make me feel better, please do. This pain is becoming unbearable”
I did not know how to make Jordan feel better, but i had to try my possible best. I wrapped my hand around his neck and said “How about this?” I placed my lips on Jordan’s and kissed him. I could tell He was not expecting the kiss, he only hummed and responded to the kiss. Jordan placed his hands on my hips as we continued to kiss. I kissed Jordan passionately as if my life depend on him, i would kiss his lips and suck his tongue as i caressed his head slightly. Jordan placed his hand on my as* and squeezed gently, he then patted my legs for me to climb on him. I climbed on Jordan and continued to kiss him slowly as he carried me to his bed. He placed me on my back and he climbed on top of me. I found myself wanting more of Jordan, i never knew i could be so into him and different emotions i never knew existed came to live. Jordan stopped to kiss my lips, he moved to my earlobe and kissed me gently as he whispered sweet words into my ear. I felt love and romance at the same time. Jordan placed his hand on my b00bs and gently unbutton my blouse. I felt so good as he worked on my b00bs, he would squeez and su.ck each of them at interval, i m0aned softly as he used his mouth on my b00bs. While Jordan was still working on my b00bs, i felt his hand on the zipper of my trouser. After he unzipped, he tried to remove my trouser and during the process, he would slightly brush is hand over my private. I felt really wet and saw the need to remove my trouser which was serving as a hindrance. I raised myself up gently to make it easier for Jordan to remove my trouser. Jordan sat on the bed in between my legs and gently removed my trouser and blouse, i was left with my underwear in bed. Jordan climbed down and removed his trousers, he was left with his boxers without a shirt. I could not help but trip for his chest muscle and six packs. Jordan went for my bra immediately he joined me in bed, he released my b00bs from my bra cup and he hungrily fed on my b00bs, i felt in paradise. He removed his mouth from my b00bs and went down for my pant. He gently removed my pant and deep a finger into my private, i felt my body shiver as i whined my waist to his touch. Jordan replaced his hand with his mouth on my private and he s—-d me gently. I could feel my wetness and i could not help but feel the urge to have sex. I raised Jordan’ s head to meet my gaze and i said “Make love to me baby” I could see the shock in his eyes. I did not give him the time to respond as i immediately went for his boxer. Jordan held my hand and said “Are you sure about this? We do not have to go this far” I placed a finger on his lips and said “Shhhh Just Do It!” Jordan wanted to say something else but i stopped him with a kiss. I kissed him so passionately and m0aned into his mouth. Jordan removed his d**k from his boxer and entered me.
I gave him my v!rgin!ty because I loved him.
