THE PAINS OF A LONELY HEART-Episode 27
It was getting intense… they were feeling each others breath now.
Suddenly, Ben came to his senses. As difficult as it was, he pushed Jax away. She tried coming back towards him but he stepped aside and stopped her. “Ben, don’t do this to me. I love you. I have loved you all this while but you never noticed me. I really love you” Jax pleaded.
Surprisingly, there was some form of sincerity in her words. Jax was being truthful this once. She was really in love with Ben.
Ben noticed this and went close to her. He placed his hands on her shoulders and looked into her eyes.
“Jax, how come you are just telling me all these?” he asked. “That’s why I’m here now Ben. I have never loved any man like this before and I’m willing to do anything to prove it to you” Jax said.
Ben was very gentle with her. He asked her to sit by his side so they could talk. “I don’t doubt what you’re telling me. I just don’t want to take advantage of this moment and have sex with you… That will hurt you more. I have already done that to someone I really cherish and I’m yet to right my wrongs. I don’t want to do the same thing to you. Let’s find an appropriate time so we can discuss this, please Jax. ” Ben said.
Jax’s conscience tugged at her. She noticed Ben was a good person. She began feeling bad about herself. “Thank you, Ben” she said and stood up to go. Before she left, she turned and said to him, “I have something to tell you. Make time for us then we can talk about it.”
Unfortunately, just as Jax stepped out of Ben’s room and shut the door behind her, she ran into Juliet who was on her way to the kitchen for some water.
Juliet was surprised to see her come from Ben’s room. Juliet didn’t say anything. She just walked past her and went straight into the guest room.
For some reason, Juliet was hurt by what she saw. She didn’t go to the kitchen again for the water. She initially wanted to confront Ben about what she had seen but she quickly changed her mind and went into her room. She decided to harbor everything.
Early the next morning, Ben was getting ready to go and see James at the police station. Despite everything, he still loved his brother. Just then, there was a knock at his door, it was his mother. She came in and found Ben dressing up.
“Where are you going this early morning? Mrs. Johnson asked. “To see James. I want to see if I can get the lawyer to get him out before it’s too late” Ben answered “Don’t worry my son. I’ve got it covered. I’ll be meeting the lawyer today” Mrs. Johnson said
“I thought you said you were traveling this morning with Jax” Ben asked. “Yeah, that’s the more reason I’m here. Where is Jax? I went to the guest room but she’s not there” Mrs. Johnson said.
“I haven’t seen her this morning. Could she have left without telling
you?” Ben asked. “Naa, I don’t think so. Let me try reaching her on phone” Mrs. Johnson said and walked out of the room. Before Ben stepped out of his room, he got a phone call from an unknown private number. He picked up and found out it was Daniel. “Hey Daniel, where are you? I’ve been looking for you since yesterday” Ben said.
“I’m sorry Ben. I had something I needed to take care of. I just called to tell you not to go anywhere within the next hour, someone wants to see you” Daniel said.
“Me? Who is that? Ben asked. “Don’t worry. Just don’t go anywhere in the next hour. Meanwhile, tell Juliet that she will soon hear from me” Daniel said and quickly hung up.
Ben couldn’t call back because Daniel had used a private number. He went to Juliet’s room. She was reading her bible when he got there.
“Yes, how may I help you?” Juliet said as she saw Ben enter. “Wow, looks like somebody had a bad night!” Ben said when he noticed her unfriendly tone. It was unusual of her but he ignored it.
“Indeed, it was bad. What are you doing in my room?” Juliet asked. “Cool down sis. What has come over you? I just came to check up on you and I also have a message fromm Daniel” Ben said.
“What’s the message?” Juliet asked straightaway. “Well, he called me a few minutes ago. He said you will soon hear from him” Ben said. “Ok. Is that all? Juliet asked
“ermmm Yeah. Juliet why are you….. ?” Ben started to ask but Juliet didn’t let him finish.
“I’m going to shower now so see you later!” She said and went into the bathroom.
Ben was shocked. He thought perhaps Juliet had somehow gotten to know that he was the one behind the rape.
He went out of her room and to the living room. Mrs. Johnson was on her way out when he got there.
Apparently, she had still not heard from Jax ever since she left thehouse without her notice that morning. She was on her way to look for her and then to the police station to see James.
About 45 minutes after Mrs. Johnson left, the gate-man came into the living room where Ben was seated. “Sir, someone is at the gate looking for you,” he said. ” Who is it? Ben asked. ” Sir, I really don’t know” the gate-man answered.
“OK, bring him in” Ben instructed. The gate-man did accordingly.
He came back with the visitor. Ben was surprised, the visitor was a woman and she did not look familiar in any way. “Good day sir. I’m looking for Ben” she said. “I’m the one madam.” Ben said. “You are Ben? Oh my! You look exactly like your father” the visitor said
To be continued….Does it mean that Ben is not Mrs. Johnson’s son? and if yes who is his father? find out in the next episode. For previous episodes kindly visit the True Life Stories category of this site.
