Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 9

Second-to-last episode!

The past always has a way of creeping into the future; that’s why it’s

advisable for us to be mindful of the way we live our lives. However, the

good news is that a changed person is free from their past and can’t be

subjected or defined by it. Despite the fact that Saint lived a double

standard life in the past, he still deserved another chance to make things

right and live a better life. We all know that stigmas are hard to correct

or erase, so the only thing Saint could do is pray that Rose sees through

Patricia to know that it’s a set-up intended to ruin his relationship with

her. Fingers are crossed and at this point, all we can do is hope that Rose

doesn’t take any drastic decision concerning her relationship with her

repentant beau.

After the shocking revelation by the anonymous WhatsApp contact, Rose

couldn’t think properly any longer. She was in denial and didn’t want to

believe that the half naked man in the pictures that were sent to her was

her own Saint. Everything felt like a horror movie and it gave her a panic

attack.

The fact that Saint just informed Rose that he dozed off at a friend’s

place and also didn’t pick up when she called earlier, gave her anxiety and

actually made the whole set-up believable. It was going to take more than

talking to get her to believe otherwise.

While hell broke loose at Rose’s end, Saint was clueless on what was

happening and never suspected any shady act by Patricia while he was at her

house. Though he noticed his belt wasn’t knotted the way he usually does

it, he waived the thought cause he felt it could have loosened due to the

tossing and turning while he slept. Never for once did it cross his mind

that Patricia had a hand in the sudden dizziness and unexpected sleep that

took place while he was at her house. Too bad he trusted blindly!

Shortly after Rose received those pictures, she wanted to call the number

that sent it but held back so as not to complicate things the more. Rose

felt the first person she needed to confront was Saint and not the

anonymous message sender. She felt if there was anyone that owed her an

explanation, then it was him.

One of the wise things Rose did was to take some time to digest the shock

she was feeling at that moment and also calmed her nerves. She knew that if

she called Saint immediately, they might end up not getting anywhere with

their conversation because she would be yelling and throwing accusing

fingers all through their conversation. The whole thing was a huge

contradiction of everything he had promised her so it was a huge deal

breaker.

“Why on earth would he do this? What sense does it make to go through all

this length just to get me back and make things work between us, only to do

a thing like this few months after we got back together. This can’t be

true, why would he do this? Is it because we chose to abstain? Could it be

that he couldn’t bear his urges any longer and then decided to cheat on me?

But he never showed any sign of resistance towards our abstinence

agreement, so where’s all this coming from? God please let there be a

suitable explanation to this because I’m at the verge of losing my mind”

Rose soberly wondered as she walked to and fro in her bedroom. It was such

an emotionally stressful day for the young lady because she couldn’t close

her eyes to sleep due to the numerous scary thoughts in her mind.

On the other hand, Patricia was anxiously waiting for a reply from Rose but

non was forth coming. She checked the WhatsApp message countlessly, waiting

for a reply but Rose was mute. Patricia could see that she had read the

message and also seen the pictures she sent. She kept wondering why Rose

was mute and wasn’t reacting the way she expected. “Ah ah, are you sure

this is the lady Saint have been flaunting all over social media as his

girlfriend? Why hasn’t she messaged me back till now or even call to yell

at me? Hmm” she wondered. It was quite weird that Rose hadn’t showed any

sigh yet of a lady that just received information with proof that her

partner was cheating on her. Patricia’s initial plan was to get into a

verbal fight with Rose and reveal more shocking details if she had called

back. The fact that she was still mute, made Patricia nervous. All she

could do was keep her fingers crossed as she awaited a reply or reaction.

When Saint arrived home that evening, he called Rose to say ‘Goodnight’ to

her but she wasn’t picking up. Without carrying any thing in mind, he felt

she had already slept off so he innocently sent her a goodnight message.

The following day, Rose woke up a bit calm and was ready to confront Saint

with evidence. While they spoke that morning, she informed him that they

needed to talk after work hours; of which he agreed to meet up with her at

her house.

As they spoke that morning, Rose’s tone wasn’t friendly at all but was

rather blunt and straight to the point. Somehow, Saint figured that

something was wrong and even went ahead to ask if she was alright but she

told him that all was fine.

All through the early hours of that day, Saint was a bit worried and tensed

as he kept wondering why Rose sounded very cold on the phone. Not for once

did his mind ever think that the issue on ground involved cheating

accusations with picture proof of him being half naked with another lady.

Despite the fact that Saint felt a bit tensed all day, he kept his cool and

hoped that it was nothing serious.

Immediately after work that day, Saint hurried down to Rose’s house. He got

there before her and had to wait inside his car for her to pull up. After

about an hours later, Rose returned home and could see Saint’s car outside

her compound. She parked well, alighted from the car and went inside

straight; without exchanging greetings with him.

Everything that happened that very moment confirmed Saint’s fear that

something was seriously wrong. In order not to lose his mind too soon, he

summoned up courage and followed Rose inside the house. When he entered

inside, he found her crying bitterly in the living room. That sight only

was enough to murder his heart as great fear gripped him because he knew

that whatever problem that could make Rose cry, was a big one indeed. “Baby

what’s going on? Why are you crying? To be honest you are getting me scared

and worried” he curiously inquired as he walked closer to her.

At that point, there was just so much for Rose to say that she didn’t know

where to start from. Unable to properly express the pain she was feeling,

she brought out her phone and gave it to Saint. One look at the phone

screen and his heart jumped out of his body.

Just imagine the feeling of seeing a nude picture of yourself with another

lady but can’t recall or remember when that sort of incident took place.

Saint was totally numb and almost collapsed due to the shock that

overshadowed him. At that point, he didn’t even know where to start

defending himself from. Words were heavy because the man on that photo was

undeniable him. After being mute for a while, he finally managed to say

something.

“This isn’t true, I swear I’m very confused because I can’t remember ever

doing this with anyone” Saint confusingly said, “wait a minute, this is

Patricia and this is also her house” he shockingly added. When he said

that, Rose’s attention was drawn and she was kind enough to ask him to

explain himself. “Saint tell me the whole truth now before I lose my mind

that I have been trying to hold together since yesterday evening I received

this message” she said.

Rose’s revelation as to when she received the pictures confirmed any doubts

Saint was having that Patricia had set him up. “Baby let me explain. This

particular lady was the person I told you that I had a business appointment

with. Her name is Patricia and she’s one of the ladies I had a thing with

in the past. When she told me she wanted us to see, I initially didn’t want

to grant her offer till she said it was strictly business. I went over to

her place yesterday afternoon to take a look at the business proposal she

said she wanted to show him. The only thing I can remember last was when

she gave me a drink and when I woke up from sleep. I suspect now that the

drink was drugged because I still can’t fathom why I dozed off unexpectedly

like that in her house. We didn’t end up having the meeting anymore because

I left immediately I woke up. The reason I wasn’t able to pick your calls

when you called was because I was fast asleep. My God! So this lady had

ulterior motives for inviting me over to her house and used ‘Business’ to

lure me over. Baby I swear I didn’t touch her, babe you have to believe me.

I have never cheated on you since we started this new journey, you have to

believe me” he soberly said.

Saint’s explanation was quite convincing but Rose wasn’t ready to believe

him too soon. “How do I know you aren’t lying? I’m trying so hard to trust

you but it’s quite difficult to do so when things like this keeps

happening” she furiously said. Without wasting any time, Saint told her to

follow him so they could get to the root of the whole matter once and for

all. He figured that the best way to make Rose believe him was for him to

confront Patricia in front of her. No time to waste!

“Babe you know what? please come with me! Don’t say anything and just

follow me I beg you” Saint said. In order not to complicate things the

more, Rose stood up from where she sat and followed him out of the house.

They both entered his car and drove off; without him telling her where they

were going to. Saint felt Rose might not want to come with him if he had

revealed that they were headed down to Patricia’s house that evening. All

he could do was pray for Patricia to be at home when they get there.

Throughout the ride, Rose kept sobbing and didn’t look like she was going

to stop anytime soon. It killed Saint deeply to hear her cry but he knew

the tears would dry immediately he was done with what he wanted to do that

evening.

After about an hour later, they arrived at their destination; which was

Patricia’s apartment. Saint told Rose to wait inside the car that he was

coming. He rushed to Patricia’s apartment and knocked on the door. He could

hear music playing inside and it confirmed that she was very much around.

After the forth knock, Patricia opened the door and was dead shocked to see

Saint standing in front of her. He tried his best not to unleash his anger

on her too soon, so he kept his cool. “What are u doing here? She

shockingly asked, “Just come with me to the car, there’s something I want

us to talk about” he calmly said.

Due to Saint gentleness, Patricia felt he wanted to talk to her about

making her his girlfriend since she might have succeeded in ruining his

relationship with Rose. She locked her door and happily followed Saint to

where he parked his car. Unknown to her, Rose was seated inside the car and

could see them waking towards the car. A serious confrontation was about to

take place but apparently, Patricia had absolutely no clue.

Immediately they got to the car, Saint opened Rose’s seat door and brought

out her phone from his pocket which contained the pictures and message

Patricia sent. The whole atmosphere was tensed and that was when Rose came

out from the car.

When Patricia saw Rose, her heart skipped a beat and she suddenly realise

what was about to go down. Before she could process things further, Saint

showed her the pictures she sent and said; “You have just two minutes to

explain this pictures and what happened yesterday before I remove my

clothes and run mad for you. Just so you know, if you don’t say the truth

to me you will definitely say it to the police officers when I get you

arrested. Now speak!”.

Scared and shocked, Patricia stammered; I…I…can cann explain please!”.
