Haunted by my Past Mistake….Episode 64
Haunted by my Past Mistake….
The living room was a complete mess. Broken pieces of glass littered the whole room. Empty bottles clustered in a spot and filled bottles and glasses lined up on the table. The sofas were disarranged and an arm-chair was upside down. An unpleasant smell filled her nostrils as she walked around the room. That made her cough. It was vomit. They sight of it almost made her puke too. She controlled herself and turned her eyes away immediately. She faced David with a serious look on her face.
“Was there a fight in here? What happened?”
“He took her away from me,” David responded sadly.
Victoria couldn’t get it. “Who took who away from you? How does it have to do with the state of your house?”
He shook his head miserably. “I don’t expect you to understand. You can never understand. I think I’ve lost her, she’s left me for now. She’s with my cousin. It really hurt me.”
Victoria rolled her eyes. “You vented your anger on your valuables at home? You broke them in pieces and got yourself drunk? What good have it done you, huh?” She folded her arms.
David threw himself on a couch. “The anger and pain, I no longer feel. I’m gonna get her back.”
“And how do you plan on doing that? In your drunken state? I doubt that.”
“You’re mistaken. I’m not drunk. I’m perfectly fine.”
“I can see that,” Victoria sneered. “Listen, I’m not comfortable here. I can’t stand the smell neither can I stand stepping on broken bottles. If you want to talk to me, get dressed and let’s go somewhere else, I’ll be waiting outside.”
“Where did you get these from?” Abigail asked. This was unbelievable. Only her had access to these letters that were written years ago. How did James come to have seen them? Who let him have them? It wasn’t possible.
“Surprised, my princess?” James remarked, standing above Abigail.
“Just give me an answer! Where did you get these letters from?” Abigail was already raising her voice. This was of serious concern to her and James seemed less concerned about it. It wasn’t fun.
James had imagined her getting paranoid.
“Calm down. You don’t have to yell at me.” He smiled grimly and joined her in squatting. His eyes caught a note on the table. He picked it up. “Here, I love this one. It says, ‘Last night, I hugged my pillow and dreamt of you…….. I wish that someday, I’d dream about my pillow and I’d be hugging you- Divine.’ Its really cute, don’t you think so?”
Abigail bit her lips hard. The letters she held fell off her hands. She dug her right palm into her left palm and tried gulping down her tears. All this, she had forgotten. She was done with them. Why resurface? It was good as dead.
“James, please stop,” she nervously whispered.
“This one’s also captivating,” he picked up another note, “‘I wrote your name on the sand, but the waves washed it away. I wrote your name on my hand, but it washed the next day. I wrote your name on a paper, but I accidentally threw it away. I wrote your name on my heart and forever it will stay.’” He said in a breath. “I’m beginning to feel jealous, wishing I’m Gerald. That feeling must be really nice and refreshing.”
Abigail met his gaze. She saw flashes of anger and pain in them. This was why he had that troubled look on his face. Things were just getting complicated. She felt as if she was not meant to be in any relationship. She wished to stop hurting him with her poor decisions and poor memory. It would be better if she were still single. She’d not hurt anyone emotionally.
“You are misunderstanding the whole thing. It’s not what you think. Please, listen to me.”
“Why did you lie to me?” James blurted.
The question cut her deeply. Lie to James? She had never lied to anyone. She hated lying, she detested the act so much. Why would she do that to someone she cared about so much? This was going too far.
“Lie to you? I never lied to you. What did I lie about?”
“You’re still asking me questions when the answers are right in front of you? You wrote several love notes to different guys while you were still in high school. You had high school sweethearts.”
“No! That’s not it. I wrote these letters but not to anyone in particular. Did you not hear my story?”
“I did. And that’s why I said you lied.”
Tears formed in her eyes. “I did not lie to you. All these are in my past and you said the past is gone, please let it go.”
James took a deep breath. “If it were only in the past, I’d not be bothering you. But it includes the present. You recently contacted Gerald and you two are seeing each other.”
Its getting hotter..
