30 Jun Bumped….(episode 5)
I walked into my apartment praying to God Ella would be out and I could have a peaceful sleep before she comes back to ask questions about my vacation and accuse me of ghosting her. Well…..don’t blame me, I was having the time of my life I barely used my phone.
Thank Goodness, she wasn’t at home. I dropped my luggage in one corner of my bedroom and walked straight into the bathroom cos I feel sweaty and sticky. I needed a cold bath badly. While in the shower, I couldn’t stop thinking of Charles and our moments together. I miss him badly!.
The sounds of banging on the front door brought me back to reality. I grabbed my robe and stormed out of the bathroom with my hair all over my face to open the door thinking it was Ella.. But then again… Ella has her keys except she just wants to annoy me.. I thought.. I opened the door to see who it was and, standing in front of me was Tade whose text I was yet to acknowledge or reply to, smiling and staring down at me..
Thank God I wore a robe and I wasn’t tying a towel. It probably would have fallen down due to the shock cos I almost lost it.. what the heck is Tade doing at my door and who told him I was back? Ella wouldn’t do that right?
I was lost in thoughts with shock written all over my face that I stood there speechless. “Hey”….Tade said waving his hand in front of my face. “What are you doing here and who told you I was back?”…… I said skipping all pleasantries.. I wasn’t exactly thrilled to see him. “I was passing by and thought to check on you…see if you were back”… he said still smiling.. one of the things I loved about Tade was his smile.. he got away with a lot of things when we were together with just his smile.
“I think we both know that’s not true but why would you want to check on me?”…I said with all seriousness. “Tamara, I miss you! I miss us! Let’s stop pretending we don’t miss each other and just hear me out”…. he said looking sad now… “I don’t miss you! and last I checked… you said I deserved better..I really do and better isn’t you or us!”….I said angrily.
“I’m sorry…I’m really sorry, I wasn’t thinking straight, I had a lot of issues going on for me….work, family and I didn’t want to drag you into my mess so I thought it would be better to just break up with you”….he said while walking closer. “And you think it was right to think for me?…Tade, we’re adults and I would have been able to handle whatever it was…I promised to be there for you and you know I don’t break promises”….I said.
“I think you need to leave now….I just got back and I need to rest”…..I said while trying to close the door.. He walked closer to me and hugged me.. “Tamara, I’m sorry…..I fucked up so bad…I realize that now and I’m not going lose you again….not this time!”….he said.. Why am I not pushing him away?…..I can’t just forgive Tade like that… he hurt me real bad, pushing me to go on that vacation where I had to spend most of my savings…what about Charles?….He doesn’t deserve to be hurt…he treated me so well… he was so nice to me!…. these thoughts made me push Tade away.
“Please go now”…..I screamed.
Do you think Tade deserves to be forgiven?
Is Tamara being too harsh?
