Living A Liar’s Life
By : Kebby NG
“Your Highness,I can’t get hold of investigator James”My PA said as soon as I got into the study
“Keep on trying! There is some thing I have to ask that man”I said
“Yes your Highness”He replied and I went out of the room in search of Dora to get her to tell me what she know
I got to my room and was about to get in when I heard her talking to Nina
“Why should I bother,When he has you, His saviour”I heard Nina say
“How can you say that feeling so calm, The man that almost died…… loves you”Dora replied
“But I don’t”On hearing Nina words, I felt like have just received a huge blow.
Did she just say that she doesn’t love me, I thought as I moved near the door to hear what they were saying.
“How can you be this cruel”I heard Dora ask her
“Me cruel? This is not me being cruel, This is me trying to survive, If Brian is not with me then I won’t be any thing”She said
So she had been with me just to be some thing, What I heard about her not loving me, Is really the truth.
“Not when it comes to Brian”I heard Dora say again
“Ahhh…..have forgotten that you are In love with him”Nina said and I stopped other thoughts to listen to what she was saying about Dora being in love with me
“Yes I do love him and I won’t sit back and watch you hurt him,It’s a pity that he fell for you,When you don’t love him”Dora defended me and her love for me
What is happening now is like a film, The girl I love doesn’t feel any thing for me but the girl I feel nothing but contempt for is in love with me.
“How could you!”I heard Dora say again
“To put you in your place my dear, No matter how hard you protect him, He will never see you the way you want him to because I will always be the one he loves” Nina said and on hearing her approach the door, I hid beside the door and watch her leave the room.
I stood by the door, still Thinking about every thing have just heard when I heard Dora crying.
I stood by the door way, starring at her cry, That was why she was always around to keep me save
It was because she was in love with me where as have treated her with nothing but disdain, She might have some skeleton in her cupboard but I do know that her feelings towards me is genuine.
And that was why I am still waiting for her to come up stairs
She might be thinking that I have Nina with me.
She had the audacity to invite her self but I sent her away and from today on wards I will keep on doing so.
I looked at the time and saw that It was quite late,Won’t She be coming back,I thought as I waited.
Why am even waiting for her I don’t know but all I know is that I wanted her to be save at least
I got to the room and breathe in gently, At least he has asked Nina not to spend the night here and he probably would be asleep now
That was why I took long in coming back to the room
I opened the door and when I saw that the lights were off,I knew that he had fallen asleep
I began to move toward the bath room when suddenly the room was flooded with lights
“Why did you come back late?”He asked as he propped the pillow up so he can sit down on the bed and i noticed that he hadnt change
“Sorry I woke you up,I will be more careful”I said
“Did I complain ? Why are you apologising?”
“I just had to, Why don’t you just continue to sleep, I will try not to make any noise” I said and went into the bath room
As soon as I was through., I went back to the bed room only to find him making the make shift bed for me
What is going on with this man? I thought as I starred at him
“What are you doing?”I asked and as soon as he saw me, He stood up
“Ahhh……I was thinking that this make shift bed is very uncomfortable for you ,Why don’t you just use the bed”He said
I starred at the bed and I saw him and Nina on it, Just knowing that the two of them shared the bed put me off the idea completely
“No, I will rather use my bed”I replied and went to lay on the bed
“Are you sure that you will feel comfortable in that”He asked
“Have always been sleeping on it, Am used to it already”I replied
“I was just thin……….”
“Go to sleep, Am feeling sleepy already”I said faking a yawn
“Okay then, Good night”He said gently and turned off the light.
I layed on the bed,Thinking about what he just did.
Why is Brian suddenly being nice to me, Those were the thoughts that haunted me for a very long time before I finally fell asleep.
I woke up not to find myself on the make shift bed but to find myself on the bed.
How on earth did I get on the bed, I thought as I turned only to find Brian beside me, Fast asleep
I stood up gently and would have gotten out of the bed but his hand pulling me back stopped me
“Just sleep here, You were having a night mare and when I had put you on the bed you slept off like a baby”He whispered this to me with his eyes closed
“Is that so?I do tend to have night mare ,Sorry I bothered you”I said trying to get up but he pulled me back again
“Are you scared of some thing?”He asked this starring at me
“Why? Why do you ask”
“Well it’s just because you were crying when you had that night mare, You were saying, ‘ I will do it, Don’t harm him, I will do what ever you ask me’ Who were you dreaming of?” He asked
I already knew who I was dreaming of and I can’t tell him who it is, no matter what .
“No one”I lied
” I don’t believe you”He said
“Whether you believe me or not, I don’t care, Just mind your business and I will mind mine”I replied
“Who are you trying to protect? Why won’t you talk to me”
“Because I don’t have any thing to say to you, Just mind your business “I said jerking my arm free of him
“You acting like this only makes me doubt you”
“Have you ever believed me? Stop being a jerk and just go to sleep”I yelled at him and went out of the room.
I layed on the bed, Thinking about what I heard her say In her dream
I had woken up due to the room being cold and when I stood up to low the air condition, I saw her shaking on the bed
She looked disturbed, I thought as I knelt beside her on the floor
“Dad! Daddy!”She whispered as I saw a tear slip from her face
“Don’t harm him please! I will do it, Don’t harm him,I will do whatever you ask me to do”She said as she kept on crying
“Any thing but that! Please don’t ask me to do that”,She kept on rambling
I had to wake her up, I thought as I began to shake her gently
“Wake up Dora,Wake up”I said shaking her for about three times
She opened her eyes slowly and starred at me and before I knew it, She pulled me into a hug, A very tight hug
“Thank God you are safe” She whispered lightly and then she fell asleep on my arm
Not wanting to wake her up, I carried her to the big bed and layed her in it.
I was about to leave when I realised that she was still holding my hand
Not wanting to wake her up, I decided to sleep on the bed beside her.
For a long time I couldn’t sleep because I was thinking about what she said.
“What are you protecting me from and why won’t you tell me”I whispered starring at her turned back.
As soon as it was day time, I left early to work and on my way to the car, I saw Nina in the garden
She had a smile on her face and was waving me off but I didn’t respond, What’s the essence of Pretending when she doesn’t love me the way I love her , I thought as I got into the car.
“Get up you damn bch!”Nina yelled angrily and that made me open my eyes
“Why are you shouting so early in the morning”I asked starring at her
“What did you say to Brian, What did you say to him?” She asked
“I didn’t say any thing and what’s wrong?”
“Its so unusual for Brian to ask me not to sleep with but he did it yesterday night and I thought that every thing will be back to normal today but it’s much worse”
“What ever problem you have with Brian is your business, I have got nothing to do with it”I replied
“Liar! What did you say to him? Why is he being a jerk to me?”She asked again
“I didn’t say any thing Nina, I don’t concern my self with your issues”I said standing up from the bed
“Stop pointing fingers at me and ask him why he is being a jerk towards you”I said and walked past her
“If Brian should leave me ,I will make sure the whole world know that you are not The real Dora Baxter”She said and that made me stop
“What did you just say?”I asked
“You heard me perfectly and I mean every one of it”She added gently before leaving the room.
