‘you know i love Alice’ Gilbert began.
‘its no news that its mere infatuation’ Amy
chipped in. Gilbert felt a tinge of anger but
didnt show it.
‘well, thats your business. I’m in love with
Alice and thats it’ Gilbert said.
Amy scoffed ‘so what do you want me to
do? Did you come here to profess your love
‘then what?!’ Amy asked with impatience.
‘Amy, you are engaged so you probably
know what it means to love and be loved in
return’ Gilbert said.
‘it seems you are here for lectures. Arent
you Gilbert?’ Amy asked.
Gilbert felt angry within. He felt like
‘Amy, will you just keep quiet and let me
talk? Stop being so shameless!!’
Amy stood up with full force.
‘i beg your pardon! Are you here to insult
me or what?! Between you and i who is the
shameless one here? Look, i’ve heard
enough, just get the hell out of my house
before i do something you alone will
regret!!’ Amy fired.
Gilbert grinned from ear to ear.
‘Amy, calm down, you are even being more
shameless than i thought’
‘WHAT?!’ Amy really didnt know when her
right hand landed mightily on his left cheek.
Geez! Gilbert froze for seconds before
shooting Amy a deadly look.
‘b—h!’ he cursed, stood up, dragged Amy
to the sofa and landed hot blows all over
her face, yanking off her clothes at the
‘Jesus! Gilbert stop!’ Amy screamed on top
of her voice.
‘somebody help me please!!’ she shouted.
‘help is so far baby!’ Gilbert said as he
drew down her skirt until it rested on her
knees, then he stopped and laughed. Amy’s
face bled, blood flowed from her mouth
‘now what do you think i will do to you
Amy? You are right here, without clothes
just undies front of me, what do you think
stops me from having my way with you
huh?’ Gilbert asked with an evil smirk.
‘ple…..ase. Please….dont do this, you know
i’m engaged. Please dont do thid to me
please, i will d whatever you want but
dont….touch me please’ Amy pleaded as
tears flowed from her eyes.
Gilbert laughed and brought out his gun.
Amy quickly froze at the sight of it. Never
had she seen a real gun in her life except in
‘My God!!’ she exclaimed and Gilbert
‘i never planned to go hard on you but
what can i do? You wanted to prove
stubborn, replica of Alice. You both know
how to provoke someone to do his worst!!
Right now, i’m gonna screw you, and then
kill you and the f—–g gateman who alone
knows i’m here, what stops me?!’ Gilbert
Amy cried the more ‘i’m really sorry Gilbert,
please have mercy on me. I was stupid i
know but please dont kill me, forgive my
‘at least you know you were stupid to have
raised your hands on me. I would have
loved to spare you but mehn! You really
have a seductive body and i cant seem to
get my eyes off it, i just need a taste, then i
kill you and you meet with your creator!!! In
hell’ he said and laughed.
Amy felt like dying. She wished she never
left her fiance’s house that day. She wished
she never let Gilbert in, she wished she
never raised her hands on him.
‘look Gilbert,’ she said obviously shaken
‘just what do you want me to do? I will do
anything but….but….spare me, will you?
Huh? I can convince Alice to give you a
chance, i can convince Alice to marry you, i
can equally take you to a babalawo who
will give you a love charm to give to Alice. I
will do anything, but…..you’ve got to spare
my life alright?’ Amy asked suddenly
gaining her confidence back.
‘really? You mean you can do all that for
me?’ Gilbert asked lowering his gun. Amy
saw this and smiled. She stood up and
stylishly raised her skirt up.
‘yes, i would but i cant possibly do that if
you kill me, can you?’ Amy asked licking
her lips and smiling, her tears had dried up.
‘hmm, how tempting’ Gilbert said giving
Amy hope ‘but i’m not a stupid guy’ he
pointed his gun at Amy again shattering
‘put the gun down Gilbert, if you do, then i
have a plan’ Amy said trying to force a
‘what plan do you have?!’
‘i won speak with a gun pointing at me you
know?’ she said.
‘stop being sarcastic or trying to be okay?
If you dont want me to sleep with you this
moment, then just speak’ he said
Amy smiled and moved closer and Gilbert
corked the gun.
‘if you move any closer then i swear, you
wont live to tell the story okay?’ Gilbert
Amy moved closer and picked her phone
from the glass table.
‘what are you trying to do? Trying to call
the police huh? Its too bad because they
will only meet your corpse and that of your
potbellied gateman!!’ he said.
Amy dialled Alice’s number and showed it
‘wh….what are you trying to do?’ Gilbert
