Chapter 61 (The Reason)
I screamed a little when I opened my eyes to see Anthonio sitting on my bed and staring at me the next morning.
“What happened last night?” he cut in immediately.
I rubbed my eyes and sat up.
“First of all, good morning. And I didn’t do anything but help you sleep.”
“I never sleep so deeply. What did you give me? I always get up at five but I just got up. And it’s past nine. So tell me.”
I stared at him, straight in the eyes.
“I didn’t do anything apart from massaging you. Your back and shoulders are okay and plus, you seem more relaxed and less stressed out because of good sleep. You’re welcome.”
He was silent and just stared, I smiled and got out of bed. He watched me silently. I removed my pullover then the trousers he’d given me the night before, remaining in only a bra and matching panties.
“I’m going to shower now. I’ll be glad if you joined me.” I smiled innocently and stood up. He had only a pair of sleeping trousers on. I loved staring at his body, making it evident that I wanted him.
“No thank you.” was his cool reply.
“Maybe some other time?” I teased with a smile. He stared back and I knew he was slightly amused.
“You don’t give up, do you?”
“Why should I? By now you should now that I’m in love with you.” I admitted!
He stared silently.
“That’s what you think. Love is something stupid. Imaginary. Fake. And if it had to exist, then I’m not the kind of person to fall for.”
“That’s what you think.” I replied. He smirked at me and shook his head.
“I’m hungry. I’ll be waiting on you.” he said and turned to leave.
“Okay, baby.” I replied intentionally.
He stopped in his tracks, his back to me. I expected him to get angry but he was clearly in a better mood and so he didn’t reply but just walked out.
The rain had scattered a lot of things in the backyard. When I’d gone downstairs, I met some of the guards trying to put things back in place outside.
I then went to the kitchen to meet Velma who’d just arrived. I greeted her.
“Um, Velma it’s been more than a week now since Leandro left. Hasn’t he sent the medicine yet?” I asked.
“No he hasn’t. And I have bad news, dear.”
“The boss is coming back this afternoon and he gave clear orders that he wants you in his room waiting for him. He should meet you there by the time he returns.”
I felt my tummy flip. I hated that man’s presence. He was the devil himself! I’d never seen him and at times I imagined him to have no human face. I imagined a monster. A heartless and ugly being. Worse than all the others.
My mood changed immediately after what Velma had told me. I always felt sick when I had to meet that man. But what could I do?
I was kneeling at the centre of that cold room. A room that smelt like blood and death, waiting patiently for the beast I was supposed to call master and my boyfriend.
It was around past two pm. I was dressed in light lingerie and a net hose, both hands tied behind my back and blindfolded. Whenever I was in that room, I cried. I couldn’t help it but sob. There was no need trying to escape because guards stood outside.
I was still sobbing when all of a sudden, the door got open and I stopped breathing.
“Oh, my flower. Did you miss me??” his ugly voice gave me goosebumps, “You get more and more beautiful with time.”
I felt his rough hands on my skin and I shook. He laughed out and I heard two other men with him laugh. I almost peed on myself because I was really scared.
I heard the men sit and start to discuss in Italian. I did not even try to understand. They discussed for a long while, ignoring me.
After about thirty minutes, the two other men stood up to leave.
“Tell a guard out there to get Anthonio for me.” the boss told one of the men.
They left, closing the door behind them. I began to shiver when I felt the boss squat close to me.
“Oh, my sweet girlfriend. HAHAHAHA!” his laugh was hideous and before I could react, the next thing I felt were his dry lips forcing themselves on mine.
As usual, I tried to fight back but his tongue found its way! I was disgusted!
He kissed me roughly and when I tried to fight back, he would slap me hard across the face.
“Stubborn bitch.” he laughed, “One of these days I would have to take care of that pussy.” je growled and his hand cupped my mound. I froze and sobbed even more. I hated when he touched me!
“Hahahaha! Don’t cry, love. You’re gonna love what I’ll prepare for you.”
He was about to send his hand inside my panties when there was a knock at the door.
“Who is it?” he asked, standing.
“Oh, my boy. Come in.”
The door got open and I heard him step in. I was still sobbing.
“Oh, don’t mind her. We were having some fun.” the boss said. I heard Anthonio close the door behind him.
“You asked to see me.” he said firmly.
“Yes. I have something for you.”
I heard the man get a plastic bag.
“Here. This thing is better than all the others I’ve given you. Stronger than cocaine, marijuana and many more, boy. It’s a rare herb. Sniff it and you’ll not only be stronger, it’ll get you out of this planet. Hahahaha!”
I was shocked. I realised that all those drugs Anthonio was taking were provided by the boss himself. He was the cause of Anthonio’s problems! He was the person making him coldblooded and cruel! Oh no.
“Sniff some tonight. I’ll be sending you to Australia tonight. I need you to eliminate a certain group of people. Understood?”
“Good. Now leave. And get a guard to take her back to her room. I’m tired from this journey.”
