Nicky could no longer stand all the embarrassment. She quickly stood up and ran to the door, she wanted to run out but unfortunately for her, the door was locked.
Richard had locked it as soon as they got in.
She helplessly stood there not knowing what else to do.
“Why can’t you admit it instead of running away?”
“Admit what? She asked having her back at him.
“The fact that you love me”
“I said those things because I was drunk, I didn’t mean it” she lied.
“You were drunk? then why did you get yourself drunk?”
“It’s none of your business” she replied almost immediately, in support of herself.
“You got yourself drunk because you love me and you thought that I’m in love with someone else, that’s a simple truth”
“Can you look me in the face and say that again?” Richard said as he turned her around to face him “now Nicky, look me in the eyes and tell me you don’t have any feelings for me. Look me in the eyes and tell me you didn’t love me and I will open the door for you to go. Not only that, but I will also grant your request for resignation ”
Nicky became scared and confused at the same time. She knew that she loves him and would not want to lose him but how can she admit that?
Does he mean what he said? Is it a strategy to make her confess her love for him or does he truly love her?
The fact that she talks a lot does not mean that she should talk anyhow in this case. She really has to be careful with her choice of word.
She played with her fingers and bit her lips as she thought of what to say.
Richard watched every of her reaction and he noticed she was finding it hard to admit the truth.
“Ah I can now understand,” he said.
“I can see that you want a kiss”
“What do you mean?”
“Your lips are itching you”
“If your lips itch you that means you want someone to kiss you. Thank God I’m here” he said letting out a smile.
“My lips are not itching me ”
“Then why are you biting it? Nicky, why do you always lie? Why do you like lying? The highest lie one could tell in this world is when you lie to yourself and I know that’s exactly what you’re doing now. Why can’t you be truthful and admit the fact that you feel something for me?”
“Okay fine, yes I’m lying but why won’t I tell lies, Richard? Why won’t I hide my feeling from you? Oh, you want me to sing my love for you so that you will mock me and play with me? So that you will tell me that I’m not your type? Please go to your girlfriend and leave my feelings and I…I…I will get over whatever feelings I have for you soon”
“You’re the only girlfriend I have and I know that you would never get over the feelings you have for me. No woman can do that, not even you Nicky” he said as he came closer to her.
“Believe me, Richard, I will,” she said trying to step back but he grabbed her.
“Okay let’s see what happens,” he said as he put his arms around her waist and began to kiss her.
At first, she struggled to pull herself away from him but his arms were so strong around her that she couldn’t move. Seeing that there is nothing she could do to stop him, to free herself from his possessive grip, she succumbed. It was then that it dawned on her that she could never resist Richard. Finally, she gave in and reciprocated the romantic act.
“Yes Richard I have feelings for you but you already have a girlfriend” she murmured amid kisses.
“She is not my girlfriend I have nothing to do with her”
“So you even nag while kissing? Please allow me to concentrate on what I’m doing” Richard said as he extended the kiss to her neck, from her neck to her chest…
Angel was so frustrated that Richard rejected her even after seeing her nakedness. That he chose Nicky over her.
She contacted some guys who would eliminate Richard and Nicky.
“If I could not have him then no other person would,” Angel said to herself.
