THE PAINS OF A LONELY HEART-Episode 14
By O.D Oluwasegun
“Its a small world Mrs. Johnson, I’m watching you” Daniel said and left with Juliet Indeed Mrs. Johnson was really scared having heard those words from Daniel. He was his new worry and was determined to find out who Daniel really was. Daniel took Juliet to his place. It was quite a huge Mansion and to Juliet’s surprise, no one lived with Daniel in that house, not even a house help.
Juliet from the initial stage felt safe but was she alone with a man in a house? That was one thing that made her felt worried.
Daniel was a gentleman, he fed her breakfast in her room, took care of her, bought anything that she wanted before she even asked. Juliet was just living a good life.
She also didn’t keep anything from him, she was completely transparent to him. She told him all that she encountered with James and even his accusations about Ben being the rapist.
Daniel then advised her not to make any conclusions but he will help her find who really the culprit was.
One thing Juliet found strange about Daniel was that, he never had cell phone on him nor email address or anything that you could use to contact him. He never had friends who came over to visit him. Ever since Juliet moved in with him, no one has ever come by the house.
The most awkward thing was, Juliet never knew the room in which Daniel slept. Even though it was a mansion, it was only a 6 bedroom house. Apart from Juliet’s room, all the other rooms were locked all the time. She tried several times that she will wait till Daniel fell asleep before she does. With that, she will be able to monitor him and eventually get to know where he sleeps. But it was to no avail, she was always the first to sleep before Daniel. Usually they will wake up and have morning devotion or prayers together at the living room but something happened on one of the occasion.
After one morning devotion, Juliet somehow found herself on Daniel’s lap as they watched television together. Juliet was getting used to Daniel. She starred at him, and strangely she wanted to kiss him. It looked as if Juliet was gradually falling in love with Daniel.
He has shown so much kindness to her and for the first time she was feeling something real. Something she had never felt before. She took her head off his lap and took his hand, looking straight into his eyes.
“Daniel, why are you doing this, I don’t know why you are helping me so much” Juliet asked him “Juliet, I believe that sometimes in life every body needs a helper. I just followed my instincts. Who knows what God is also doing for me because of what I’m doing for you. Miracles do happen you know, but we just don’t see it because we humans are too dependable on pastors, friends and whoever they can trust. I’m not the one you should be asking this question. God himself will give you an answer.” Daniel said.
His words was just too pleasing to her ears. There is no person who has attained perfection but for Daniel, it seems he has. Juliet kept looking into eyes. She felt like kissing him. She just mentioned his name and drew her face closer to his. At this time, Daniel knew the intention of Juliet. They virtually feel each others breath. However, Daniel withdrew and stood up from where Juliet was sitting. Juliet came to her senses and somehow regretted her actions. She apologized to Daniel and quickly ran into her room.
Ben on the other hand was trying to get into contact with Juliet for several times but was to no avail. He decided to come back home when his mother told him about Juliet and Daniel.
Ben was furious and somehow jealous for a reason known to himself. Without wasting anytime, Ben quickly rushed home with the motive of questioning his mother for making Juliet move in with Daniel.
He budged into the house and went straight to his mother’s room only to see her really sick in bed. All his life, she has known her mother to be a very strong woman. It seemed this sickness was quite difficult for her to handle. But to his mother’s surprise, he was not really bothered about her sickness.
All he wanted was to know the where about of Juliet. “Mum, where is Juliet? tell me where she is, I need her address” Ben asked his mother in a very angry tone.
Ben, why are you so concerned about that girl, when I, your mother is seriously sick in bed” Mrs. Johnson said. “Mum, just tell me where she is, that’s all I need” Ben asked again.
“Ben, Juliet is with his baby’s daddy and soon they are going to get married so stop bothering about her. ” Mrs. Johnson said.
“Baby’s daddy my foot! that Man is a liar, Juliet is carrying my child” Ben revealed. His anger made him to spit out his secret. His mother struck with a shock. That was the moment Ben realized that he had said too much……
