Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 8
It’s such a sweet and beautiful feeling to love and be loved back in
return. A relationship can’t be established unless the feeling is mutual
between both parties because two cannot work together except they agree. It
wasn’t just enough for Saint to realise his mistakes and want Rose back
into his life, but also up to her to decide if she wanted him back into her
life too. It’s a thing of joy indeed to know that both of them still had
feelings for each other and was willing to make things work between
themselves. At this point, it’s safe to acknowledge the popular saying that
“what is meant for you will never pass you by”.
The kiss Saint planted on Rose’s lips was unexpected because she was so
engrossed in her emotions that she didn’t see it coming. She reciprocated
and they kissed passionately for a while before finally parting their lips.
After the kiss, the whole atmosphere became a bit calm and the burning
sensations ceased. Saint didn’t want to make any more advances so as not to
come off as having an ulterior motive. He figured it was best to take
things slow between them, so as not to jeopardise things.
On the other hand, Rose also didn’t want things to go beyond that kiss
because she still needed some time to process everything and think things
through. After the kiss, he pecked her on the forehead and raised her up
from where they both knelt. They located the nearest couch and sat down
“Thank you so much for giving me another chance, you wouldn’t regret this I
promise. I have to go home now because it’s already getting late, take as
much time to process and think about everything. I want you back into my
life and this time around, you are coming back as my one and only. I’m
ready to commit to you and give my all to this relationship. Things have
changed for the better and now I’m sure of what I want. I love you Rose,
Happy Birthday once more” Saint said. He pecked Rose again on her forehead
and walked away.
When Saint left, Rose laid down on the couch she was sitting on and folded
her body like a little baby. She kept staring at the cake as she thought of
Saint. Deep down, she knew that she was still very much in love with him.
“Oh Lord, what should I do? Should I take him back or not? I really don’t
want to make any mistake” she soberly said to herself as she laid down in
It was such an emotional day for both parties. Saint thought of Rose all
through the remaining hours of that day, same with her too. He kept praying
that God touches her heart to accept him back, even though he knew that her
hard shell had cracked. The future looked promising and assuring that Rose
would come back to him, but he didn’t want to take any chances at all by
slacking or slowing down.
As days passed by, things gradually began to fall into place for the two
lovebirds. Saint made deliberate attempts everyday to solidify their
relationship. He usually sent Rose money for upkeep without her asking, he
sent lunch to her office whenever he had the time to order, he texted and
called her daily. It was just a matter of time before Rose fell deeply in
love with him again. Gradually, she started opening her heart again and
Saint didn’t take any chances at all.
With each passing day, their relationship grew stronger and they started
trusting each other again. Chat MartinMartino on zero eight one eighty
thirty fourteen twenty one to be added to his WhatsApp group. With time,
they started going on dates and chilling out together. They deliberately
took things slow when it came to their intimate life. Matter of fact, Rose
made up her mind not to let Saint touch her till he puts a ring on it. She
didn’t want to loose her guards nor bring it down again, so as not to be
too heartbroken if anything unexpected ever happened. She communicated with
Saint that she was going to abstain and not give her body to him in the
course of their relationship and he understood perfectly fine and accepted.
The fact that Saint didn’t make a fuss about Rose’s decision to abstain,
made her believe he had truly changed and his feelings were certainly
genuine. With ‘Love Making’ out of the way, they had enough time to focus
and concentrate on other major things that guaranteed a healthy and strong
relationship. They got to know each other better and invested their time
and energy on things that uplifted the other. Life seemed as though it had
finally smiled on them till something unfortunate happened along the line.
It happened that Saint began to make his relationship with Rose a little
public. He uploaded photos of them together on his new social media handles
once in a while and never hesitated to let people know that he was now
‘Taken’. Deep down, Rose was happy that he was proud of what they had and
wasn’t keeping it a secret.
However, as time went on, some ladies from Saint’s past that still loved
him weren’t too happy with the new development. One particular lady took
things to the extreme as she wasn’t willing to fold her arms and watch
another woman take her dream place in Saint’s life.
Turns out that Rose wasn’t the only one that was aware of the changed
Saint; as a lot of people could see that he was now a different man. The
‘New Saint’ was more attractive than the ‘Old Saint’ and this made him more
sought after by the ladies from his past. A lot of them tried to contact
him as time went on but he usually told them he had someone else and wasn’t
Saint didn’t bother to confide in Rose about the constant harassment he was
getting from the ladies from his past because he felt it might make her
insecure; of which he didn’t want that sort of negative energy in their
relationship. Well, too bad because if he knew it would lead to a big
problem in the future, he would have told her straight up.
One fateful day, a certain lady named Patricia called Saint and pleaded
with him that she wanted them to talk about something business related. The
lady was someone from his past that wanted him to be hers by all means. The
thought of Saint being with someone else with all the admirable package he
had, drove Patricia crazy and made her even more determined to get him no
Initially, when Patricia called Saint, he didn’t want to honour her
appointment but had to do so because she mentioned that it was strictly
business related. She was the one that suggested her house and he didn’t
think there was an ulterior motive to that suggestion because he had been
to her house many times in the past.
The appointment was scheduled for evening but Saint moved it to afternoon
to avoid stories. That fateful afternoon, he arrived at Patricia’s
apartment to listen to the business proposal she had been disturbing him
for almost a week to hear. When he entered inside her living room, the
first thing she did was try to peck him, of which he swiftly shifted his
“If this is why you called me here, then I might as well take my leave.
Let’s get to the business proposal you called me here to look at” Saint
bluntly said, “I am sorry, let me get you something to drink so we can get
to business” Patricia said. She went inside the kitchen and came back with
Unknown to Saint, the drink was drugged but he had no single clue. He took
a sip and they got talking. Few minutes after taking several sips, he
suddenly became dizzy and knocked off on Patricia’s couch.
With Saint deeply asleep, Patricia hurriedly undressed him and undressed
herself too. With the help of camera timer, she took intimate pictures with
him in such a way that one would think they made love. After taking the
pictures, she kissed him passionately. “No one can have you if I can’t, I
miss those lips” she gently muttered. When she was satisfied with her evil
motives, she dressed him back and pretended as though noting happened.
It was getting dark but Saint was still fast asleep. Rose called him thrice
but Patricia let the phone ring without picking up. She was able to get
Rose’s number from Saint’s phone and stored it on her phone because she had
something up her sleeves.
Finally, after over six hours of sleeping, Saint woke up. Immediately he
opened his eyes, he was shocked to find out that he just woke up from sleep
and also was still at Patricia’s house. Immediately she saw that he was now
awake, she walked towards him and pretended to be surprise.
“Oh, thank God you are now awake! I was scared” Patricia said, “Did I sleep
here? What happened?” Saint curiously asked, “I am surprised myself, while
we were discussing, you suddenly became dizzy and slept off. I guess you
were just stressed out and tired” she lied.
Without wasting any more time, Saint told Patricia that he had to leave and
zoomed out. It was when he got into his car that he realised that Rose had
been calling him. He saw her missed calls and immediately called her back.
“Hello babe, I am so sorry; I was asleep when you called” he said. Rose
tried to inquire where he was but he told her he had a business meeting
with a friend and unknowingly dozed off there. She understood and told him
to drive home safe.
Unknown to Saint, a big disaster was up ahead. It turns out that Patricia
forwarded the pictures she took to Rose’s WhatsApp that same evening with a
message that read; “You can’t keep what isn’t yours, stay clear!”. Patricia
knew she had the right person because Rose’s display picture gave her away.
Few minutes after Rose was done talking to Saint, her phone beeped and she
reluctantly checked her notification and saw that it was a WhatsApp
message. On seeing that the message was from an unknown number, she opened
it to see it’s content and almost collapsed when she saw the pictures and
At that moment, Rose died a thousand times and couldn’t breathe properly.
She placed her hand on her chest and gently muttered “It can’t be true”.
