[STORY 18+] A Two Faced Lover(episode 1-10)

Posted by on April 1, 2021 0
A Two Faced Lover (episode 1) Psychologists describe ‘Halo Effect’ as when someone is perceived by others as being good due to previous good deeds that person has done and their perception towards that person never changes; even though he or she was caught in the act doing something evil. Have you ever trusted someone with all your heart and could even stake your life that the person in question would never hurt or betray you; only to find out later that you actually never meant anything to that person and they were living a Big Lie? What if the person happens to be your supposed lover and you were just being played all along. Someone you felt you were in an honest relationship with, only to realise later that you were not even close to being even a ‘Side Piece’ talk more of being the ‘Main Piece; do you know how devastating that feels? Well, brace up because this tale is one of a kind. In a very busy city resided a charming man by name ‘Saint’. The lifestyle of Saint was an extremely admirable one and it brought him respect from all around the world. Saint was a Life Coach and a Philanthropist who lived most of his lifetime impacting the masses and giving out a great portion of his fortune to the less privilege. Due to his good deeds and impact on many lives, a lot of people could go to war for him. Things were so serious that people even fought their colleagues or friends that had a different opinion about Saint’s lifestyle. This man was idolised and could never do any wrong in the eyes of the people that loved him. Due to his ‘Holier Than Thou’ attitude, a lot of ladies wished to be his girlfriend and even wife. I mean, which lady wouldn’t go head-over-heels in love with an angel in human form like Saint? He was handsome, a successful career man, he had a charming charisma and personality, he had the hottest lips you could ever imagine and a banging fitted body to top everything up. Oh my! He was just a complete package that so many ladies wished could be delivered to their door front. What a man indeed! However, the truth here’s that no one truly knew who Saint was behind closed doors. No one could tell of the life he lived when the cameras stopped rolling, no one could ascertain his relationship status and certainly, no one knew anything about him other than what he wanted them to know. Saint controlled his imagine very well and never left any loop holes that could leak his secret lifestyle. What a lot of people didn’t know was that Saint was very much still single, but it was deliberate because he was a Brutal Love Making Freak and also had the traits of a Dominant. For those who don’t know what a dominant is, it refers to a person that loves taking total charge and control during Love Making without giving their partner any chance to express themselves the way they want to. A dominant derives pleasure in inflicting pain on their partners when they reach a high level of ecstasy and usually want things to always go the way they want. This was the reality of Saint. Most ladies who had encountered Saint’s Brutal Love Making sessions took race after their first experience, while some actually liked it and eventually became his ‘Call Girls’. Most of these ladies that truly knew who Saint was, gossiped about him to their friends and colleagues and that’s how come people had different opinions about his personality and lifestyle. To be fair, Saint wasn’t really doing anything wrong because being a Brutal Love Maker or Dominant isn’t a crime and wasn’t anyone’s business, but what made everything look shady and bad was because he usually preached against certain things he practised. As a life coach, Saint usually spoke in seminars and had lots of followers. He was an advocate of equality in everything that pertains to life and usually frown at any form of injustice. But the irony of everything was that he was the master of injustice and inequality. How can you manipulate and use ladies that you know deep down loves you and want a relationship with you? How can you think of only yourself during love making, without considering the pleasure and satisfaction of your partner? How can you be a dominant in your personal life but preach against inequality to the public? Well, all I see is a double standard and two faced human being but I’m glad every secret has an expiry date. What Saint didn’t know was that not all ladies can be messed with. His doom wasn’t far fetched since the day he met an equally charming lady named Rose. They met one fateful evening at a restaurant after a stressful work day. It happened that Saint was already seated inside the restaurant and facing towards the glass that showed the outer part of the restaurant. In the parking lot area was a woman begging for alms with her kids. Coincidentally, they were there when Rose drove in and immediately she alighted, the beggars walked up to her pleading for alms. Rose was kind enough to hold the little girl that held her leg and beckoned on them to follow her inside the restaurant. As they walked towards the restaurant, Saint was quick to spot the charming lady because her kind gesture caught his attention. He sternly watched her till they entered inside. As Rose ordered take-away food for the beggars, Saint couldn’t stop staring at her. In his mind, he kept praying that she stays back to eat in the restaurant and not order take-out for herself too. He wanted an opportunity to approach her but didn’t want to look too desperate by walking down to the counter. Chat MartinMartino on zero eight one eighty thirty fourteen twenty one to be added to his WhatsApp group.He knew he was going to make a fast move on her immediately she settled down to eat. Unknown to Saint, he wasn’t going to need any much introduction because Rose already knew whom he was and she was also one of his secret admirers. She hadn’t seen him yet but that wasn’t for too long because immediately she was done ordering food for herself, she looked out for where to sit down and the only empty seat in the restaurant was the one opposite Saint. She majestically walked towards the seat to ask if she could sit there and that was when she recognised him. “Can I sit here please?” Rose asked, “Yes sure you can!” Saint hurriedly replied and stretched his hand towards the seat. In as much as Rose recognised whom he was, she comported herself and pretended otherwise. After about 5 minutes of awkward silence, the waiter walked in with Rose’s food and a conversation began. “I saw what you did back there, we need more people with good heart like you” Saint calmly said, “Awwn, thank you very much. I appreciate” Rose replied blushing. Saint asked of her name and she revealed her name to him and also pretended not to know his name and asked for his; of which he also revealed. They got talking and gradually began to enjoy each other’s company. Apparently, what Rose didn’t know was that Saint wasn’t the regular kind of man that believed in Love. If he liked a lady, it was usually for her to warm his bed and nothing more. He usually gave money to the women in his life and was a great Sugar Zaddy! In as much as Saint instantly liked Rose the very moment they started interacting, he honestly didn’t foresee anything serious like a Relationship, but rather imagined her at his mercy during Love Making. It was such a messed up life that Saint lived and it was indeed not a suitable lifestyle for a role model like him; little wonder why it was a secret from the rest of the world. After a beautiful meeting at the restaurant, Saint optioned to pay for Rose food but unfortunately, she had already paid for it at the counter. Due to that, he promised her a date and they exchanged numbers afterwards. Throughout the rest of that day, Rose was very excited to have met the man she had always admired and had a huge crush on. She blushed at every thought of him and kept replaying their conversations in her head. On the other hand, Saint wasn’t that excited as Rose was because his intentions were different than she thought. There was no doubt that he liked her but that didn’t make her anyway different than every other lady in his life. The fact that she was generous to the beggars was what actually prompted him to want to get closer to her, otherwise he wouldn’t have made any move to talk to her at the restaurant. The upcoming date was the perfect time for Saint to make his move and try to lure Rose into his life. He actually thought it was going to be an easy one like with other ladies but was in for a tough chase. Finally, the D-day came and both parties dressed to kill. Saint was a classy clean guy so whatever he wore usually fitted him, same with Rose too. When they met, Saint couldn’t hesitate to compliment Rose on her charming looks, of which she blushed all through. They settled down and made their orders and a conversation started afterwards. “I’m glad you are here, thanks for coming” Saint said, “My pleasure” Rose confidently replied and he smiled. His eyes were fixed on her eyes and it actually started making her sweaty and a bit uncomfortable. “Why are you looking at me like that?” she asked in a shy tone, “If it’s a crime to stare into those beautiful eyes of yours, then just apprehend me” he jokingly said and they both laughed. As Rose sat there looking pretty, Saint had already undressed her in his mind and was just praying for an easy wooing so he could eventually undress her physically. Well, too bad because Rose wasn’t as desperate as the other ladies and would definitely never settle for a ‘Call Girl’ position for any man; not even the almighty Saint. As they conversed further, Saint began to notice that Rose was a bit difficult and wasn’t an easy prey, so he had to switch his technique even if it meant for him to lie just to win Rose’s heart and trust. “Are you in a relationship?” he suddenly asked, “No I’m not, why asking?” she inquired and he dropped a shocker; “I asked because I might be the lucky guy to fill in that space in your heart. Those words pierced Rose’s heart and left her speechless for a while. She looked into his eyes and began to stammer. “But..but..” she said and before she could finish her sentence, Saint placed his finger on her lips and hushed her; “Shhuusss, No Buts! Just let me take care of you” he gently said. Immediately afterwards, he stretched his body and planted a soft kiss on her lips. Rose blinked her eyes after the kiss and was completely love struck at that moment. She held her chest as Saint drew back to his seat and quietly muttered; “Oh My God”. A Two Faced Lover (episode 2) You know there’s fire on the mountain when a man you just met and barely knows kisses you on the first date without your consent or prior notice. Looks can be deceptive quite alright but actions speaks high volume of someone’s character and intentions. It was quite unfortunate that Rose was already love struck and couldn’t read between the lines that everything was just happening faster than normal and was quite suspicious. In as much as the kiss was unexpected and too soon, she actually enjoyed it and secretly wished for more. The atmosphere was a bit awkward after the kiss and it made Rose slightly tensed and nervous, while Saint was perfectly fine and unmoved. The level of confidence at which he portrayed made her fall even more in love with him. It made him look more outright and charming; the kind of man that loves to go head-on for what he wants. Well, if only Rose knew the true intentions of Saint’s action, then she might have retraced her steps and held back herself from falling deeper in love with him. Too bad things had already escalated and at that point, there was little or nothing she could do other than get excited at the thought of going into a relationship with the man of her dreams. “I’m so sorry if I took you unaware” Saint said after the tension had died down a bit, “To be honest, I wasn’t expecting the kiss but it’s all good” Rose said in a shy tone. Before they could talk further, the waiter brought their meals and they dived right into it. As they ate, Saint stole glances at Rose and she blushed all through. While they were still eating, an unknown person who happened to be a follower of Saint, walked towards them and happily introduced herself to him. Due to the over excitement of meeting her role model, the lady shook him with two hands before walking away. After that little show of attention, Rose smiled at Saint and couldn’t hold back the glitters in her eyes as she stared at him in admiration. “What’s it?” he asked with a wide smile on his face, “Uhmm, Nothing” she replied smiling more. The excitement on Rose face made Saint’s heart glad. At that moment, he wished to strip her clothes off and just do what was on his mind because her body movements and gestures were killing him slowly. Rose was aware that Saint was into her, and it gave her the courage to behave even more babyish. The funny thing about the whole situation was that Saint had no idea that Rose knew whom he was. He didn’t have a clue that she was aware of his respectable image in the media and eyes of the public. The main reason Rose didn’t want to disclose to Saint that she already knew him was because she felt pride might set in and he might begin to see her as just one of his multiple Fans; of which she didn’t want to be categorised as. Due to the fact that Rose hid that little secret form Saint, it made him more relaxed because he felt he wasn’t putting his image at risk. Since his career as a Life Coach only covered a little niche, it’s fair to say that not everyone knew or have heard about him. He probably thought to himself that Rose was just part of that big population that didn’t know him. Too bad for him because that wasn’t the case. Few hours later, the date came to an end and Saint cleared the bill. It was getting quite late so they had to head back to their various houses. Rose came with her own car so there was no need for him to give her a ride. When they finally got to the parking lot, Saint opened Rose’s door for her to get into the car; just to show off some gentleman skills. She smiled and entered the car but before she shut the door, she pecked him on the cheek. That little action from Rose increased Saint’s hunger to devour her and make her beg for Mercy, but he had to comport himself just so he doesn’t look too desperate. “Call me when you get home” he said and bid her Goodbye, as she drove off. With Rose gone, Saint sat inside his car for a while to cool off the burning fire within before zooming off. After about 30 minutes, he figured that he hadn’t succeeded in calming his nerves down so he had to dial the line of one of his ‘Call Girls’ so he could have a companion that night; since he didn’t succeed in luring Rose to his bed. With someone already on the way to his house, he finally headed home. That night, while Saint was Brutally dealing with someone’s daughter in his house, Rose was busy fantasising about him. She didn’t want to call him when she reached her destination just so she doesn’t overdo things. Everything still felt like a beautiful dream to her and the thought of having a relationship with Saint drove her crazy. “Wow, how did I get so lucky? Everything still feels too good to be true. Did he just ask me out? This isn’t true!” Rose wondered all night with butterflies dancing in her stomach as she laid on the bed. On the other hand, Saint wasn’t even concerned about petty thoughts like that and was busy exhausting his strength on the lady that came visiting that night. At that moment, the only thing in his mind was to empty himself of every burning craving for pleasure that Rose had triggered. What a complicated situation that involved two people that wanted entirely different things from each other. Rose wanted a relationship between them and felt that Saint wanted same too; since he was the one that instigated their first kiss and also made the first move by telling her that he wanted to fill in the space in her heart. Sadly, that wasn’t Saint’s desire because what he wanted was to taste Rose’s apple and eventually make her one of his ‘Call Girls’. At this junction, it’s safe to say that a big disaster was forth coming. The next day, Rose waited for Saint to call first of which he actually did. She was highly excited when his call came in and couldn’t hold back the smile on her face. “Hi dear” she greeted, “Hello sunshine, trust you slept well? I waited for your call last night but it wasn’t forth coming” he lied. Rose was low-key smitten to hear that Saint actually waited for her call last night; it made her feel wanted. “I’m sorry for not calling, I actually felt you would be tired so I decided not to disturb you” she said, “Point of correction, nothing from you is a disturbance so don’t ever feel that way again” he revealed. It was so clear that Saint was trying too hard to win Rose over, hence the extreme he had to go just to make her feel comfortable around him. Beneath all that camouflage sweet talks was a guy that just needed to get into the pants of his newest catch. Too bad Saint even had to go to the extreme of lying to Rose by making her believe he wanted a relationship with her. it’s also quite unfortunate that she had already fallen too deep for him. “About what we talked about yesterday, I was serious though” Saint said as they conversed, “What was that dear?” Rose inquired, “I’m talking about how long you want to keep me standing outside your heart while there’s a vacant space inside” he replied and Rose blushed, “Everything is just happening too fast and don’t get me wrong, I like you too but just feel like you might be playing me” she innocently said. At that moment, Saint knew he had to step up his game because it already felt like Rose had began to sense that he was lying and wasn’t genuine. “Can I see you again tonight so we can talk about anything that might be making you doubt my feelings for you” he gently said, “Uhmm, I don’t really know because I have some things to do today. Where should we met if I eventually change my mind?” she asked, “Well, I was thinking my house but that decision is entirely up to you. Where do you suggest?” he asked. By that time, his plans had already succeeded because he had indirectly planted a seed in her mind. Dominants know the game and can easily manipulate a lady to think that they want something, without knowing that their thoughts and desires have been stirred to go in a certain direction. The fact that Saint brought up his house as their meeting point was very deliberate, because he knew that even if he made his choice look optional, Rose will still consider it because she wouldn’t be able to come up with a better option in such short notice. They talked further and ended the call with hopes to see each other later in the day if things go rightly. When the phone hung up, Saint smiled and walked back to his bedroom where the lady that spent the night was lying down in. He gently moved towards her and they continued from where they stopped the night before. Later in the day, he discharged the lady and a cleaner came to arrange his house and clean it; as he prepared to receive Rose anytime soon. At around passed 5pm, Rose called Saint and told him she was ready to come over to his place. He sent his location to her and she drove down to his nice apartment in a classy neighbourhood of flats. Saint came downstairs to welcome her and took her to the top floor where his apartment was. After they exchanged greetings, Rose settled down and sat quietly on one of the couch in the living room. “What can I offer you?” Saint politely asked but she turned down the offer and told him she was OK. He sat on the same couch with her and they started talking about random things. Rose tried her possible best to avoid eye contacts but not for too long. As they conversed, Saint redirected the conversation back to the main reason he invited her over. “Enough with the chatting, now can we talk about my heart?” he said out of nowhere and Rose blushed. “What’s wrong with your heart?” she playfully inquired and Saint laughed; “It wants you” he bluntly answered. That reply melted Rose’s heart and made her palms sweaty. She didn’t know what to say or do at that moment and kept praying within that Saint doesn’t make physical advances towards her because she was bound to fall. After being speechless for a little while, she managed to talk further. “You just knew me not too long ago, how can you be sure this is for real and that your feelings isn’t playing with you?” Rose inquired as she looked into Saint’s eyes. His emotions began to heat up as the atmosphere gradually changed. He moved closer to her and gently placed his palm on her cheeks. She blinked her eyes and gently rubbed her cheek against his palm and out of nowhere, Saint asked; “What do you want?”. That question threw Rose off balance and ignited a slight sensation within her. “I want you but I’m just not sure if this is real” she gently said and before she knew it, Saint leaned forward and planted a soft kiss on her lips. This time around, she tried to stop him but it was already too late because the mood had already set in. “I can’t do this” Rose said but Saint hushed her; “Don’t fight this” he said and planted another kiss on her lips. This time around, she reciprocated and kissed back. They kissed passionately and gently made their way to Saint’s room. He pushed her on the bed and immediately rushed her neck and kissed it. “I’ll be right neck” he said and went inside his bathroom to freshen up. While Saint was gone, Rose laid back on the bed and started looking around his beautifully decorated room. Her eyes made a marathon race and finally stopped when she caught sight of something that looked like a lady’s bra. “Isn’t that a Bra my eyes are seeing?” she thought to herself as she got up to clarify her doubts. She walked towards the stack of clothes on top of a chair opposite his wardrobe; Lol & Behold, It was a wine coloured bra. Shocked and confused as to how a woman’s bra got into Saint’s room and was even mixed up with his clothes, Rose stood there with the bra in her hands. Before she could figure out what to do, the bathroom door opened and Saint walked in to see her standing beside his wardrobe. “What’s the problem?” he curiously asked and before he knew it, a Bra dangled in front of his eyes. “Who owns this? Am I in another woman’s territory?” Rose sadly inquired. Unable to think of a more convincing lie, Saint said; “Oh it’s nothings to worry about, it belongs to my sister!”. A Two Faced Lover (episode 3) The easiest way to catch a liar is to confront them with hard evidence of whatever suspicion you are having; but also watch out because a professional liar can still find his or her way out of any situation no matter how intense it is, without giving you the slightest clue that your guesses were right. There was no doubt that the bra Rose found belonged to a lady that had clearly been to his room, so the most convincing lie Saint came up with at that crucial moment was to say that it belonged to his sister. A huge part of Rose’s heart knew that the story wasn’t adding up and she felt in her guts that the Bra belonged to a lady that might have spent the night at his place. In as much as Rose could tell that something was fishy, there wasn’t any evidence to prove Saint’s story otherwise, so she just accepted and shut the topic down. Due to that little confrontation, the atmosphere became tensed and it made Saint a bit nervous; he could tell that Rose wasn’t satisfied with his response and probably wasn’t happy with him so he had to act fast in order to set the mood back to what it initially was. Determined to bring back the previous good mood, he walked towards where she stood and gently placed his hands on her waist. “Are you angry with me?” Saint calmly inquired, “I don’t know what to feel at the moment because I can’t tell if you are saying the truth about who truly owns that Bra” Rose sadly replied. Her response made Saint smile for reasons known to him. Despite the fact that Rose had doubts and needed more clarity before investing too much emotions, Saint wasn’t interested in giving her that clarity but was rather only interested in getting inbetween her legs. “To be honest, that Bra belongs to my younger sister. She came around few days back from school and usually loves sleeping here because she uses my laptop for school work. She probably showered in my bathroom while I was away and forgot her bra in my room” he lied. At that moment, Saint’s lies began to sound convincing enough to Rose and she sadly fell for it. He could see that his tricks and sweet tongue had eventually gotten to her so he quickly used that as leverage to set the mood again. “Can I get at least a smile from you?” Saint playfully requested. Rose blushed and rolled her eyes in mild excitement as she looked into his shiny eyes. They got kissing again and eventually made their way back to the bed. While they kissed, Rose was quick to notice the fact that Saint was being slightly rough by squeezing her both hands and choking her in the process. At first, she thought it was romantic and cute but later changed her mind when his roughness persisted. Unknown to Saint, it hadn’t come to his consciousness that the ‘Dominant’ part of him had began to show off. Firstly, it started from seizing her hands and squeezing it tightly and later upgraded to choking her slightly in the neck. This form of Love-Making was entirely new to Rose as it was her first time being manhandled that way. She screamed most of the time when the pain was unbearable and endured the ones she could. Their Love-Making sessions lasted for hours and Rose was transported to the wonderland of intense pleasure. In her shallow mind, she felt she was giving her body to a man that cared so much about her and also to her partner, but little did she know that Saint had no atom of love for her and that they were far from ever being an official couple. Poor Rosy! After they were done, Saint went straight to the bathroom to take his shower without her and returned few minutes later and went to bed. He turned to the other side of the room and shifted his body in such a way that it had little or no contact with Rose’s body. She didn’t pick any offence due to his attitude because she felt he was greatly tired and needed a good rest. Though she was slightly angry, she waved it off, headed to the bathroom to bath and laid down to sleep afterwards. Throughout that night, Rose kept thinking if she did the right thing by giving Saint her body. “Was I too easy? Did I give him the cookie too soon?” she wondered as she laid down lonely without a cuddle from the man that just touched her. Despite all those scary thoughts, she still remained positive about their relationship and finally retired to bed. In the morning before Rose woke up, Saint was already dressed to leave the house. Rose was quite shocked because she was expecting breakfast in bed treatment but that wasn’t the case. “Where are you going to?” she curiously asked, “Oh you are awake! I was actually about to wake you up myself. I just received a call and have to head out because I have an important work appointment this morning” he said. While Saint was talking to Rose, he was getting ready to leave at the same time. He indirectly watched her to see if she would get up and start preparing to leave with him too but that wasn’t the case because Rose was still comfortably lying down on the bed. In order not to sound rude or in a haste to discharge her, Saint kept mute but prayed within that she does the needful by also preparing to leave. Few minutes later, Saint was done dressing and looked as though he was ready to leave. “Aren’t you coming with me?” He finally managed to say but it seemed as though Rose wasn’t ready to go just yet. “Uhmm, I don’t think I’m ready to leave yet. I have to shower and maybe eat something, I felt you will be around so we could spend some time together” she innocently said. Deep down in Saint’s heart, he wasn’t happy that Rose was being too comfortable and also wasn’t seeing the need to leave his house at the same time he was leaving, but who could blame the poor lady? She felt they were in a relationship, hence the reason she was that comfortable. Not after all the sweet talks Saint used to lure her; of which it seemed as though he had forgotten. Unable to indirectly convince Rose to leave, Saint gave her a spare key to lock up the house when she was ready to go and then left afterwards. Rose felt wanted and valued when Saint left his house key for her but she had no idea that he was boiling with anger within. As he walked out of the door, she smiled and blushed at the thought of being the madam of the house. If only she knew that her presence wasn’t needed at all and that she was not that important to him, she probably wouldn’t be feeling that fly. Well, it’s quite unfortunate that we can’t read people’s mind. As Rose was having the best time of her life back at Saint’s house, he was bitter and angry that she was still there. “Did I marry and forget? Which kind wahala is this!” he murmured as he drove down to his destination. It was then that every sweet thing he said to Rose slowly began to dawn on him. When he was busy telling her to let him fill up the space in her heart, he didn’t realise that he was saying those words to a human being with emotions. I bet Saint didn’t think that winning Rose over was going to be a difficult task, that’s why he subjected to fake promises and tactics when his quick plans weren’t working. Words are powerful and greatly determines a person’s action or reaction towards a situation, person or thing. Rose was acting that way and being too comfortable because of the sweet promising words of assurance Saint spoke to her. He set the beat so he had to dance to it! At around 11am, Rose finally left the house and took the spare key with her after Saint instructed her to drop it off at a hidden place in front of his door. Rose called Saint to inform him that she had left and that was when he asked if she dropped off the key and she said ‘No’. At that moment, it felt as though he should just fall off the surface of the earth because he felt suffocated. At the same time, every anger ceased when he figured that it was best he kept leading her on so as to Make Love to her whenever he wanted to. He swept every anger he was feeling under the rug and went with the flow. “So when am I seeing you again?” Saint calmly asked and Rose blushed. “But we just spent last night together and with the way you behaved after what happened last night, I felt you weren’t into me that much as I thought” She revealed. “How did I behave?” he curiously asked, “You couldn’t even cuddle me or something, I felt used” she replied in a low tone. To be honest, Saint was fed up at that moment because he wasn’t used to having those kind of conversation with women. The fact that he owed Rose an explanation was emotionally exhausting for him, but he just had to pretend anyways. “I’m sorry babe, I was just tired that’s all” he lied. As the conversed, Rose wanted to bring up the roughness at which he handled her the night before when they made love, but just had to shove it down the drains. They scheduled to meet up again in few days time and ended the call afterwards. Gradually, Rose started trusting Saint more than she should have. The funny thing was that he was very good at pretending and also very good at lying. The fact that his name was even ‘Saint’ made his shady ways even more difficult to figure out. Sadly, Rose had already began picturing Saint in her life and was excited for what the future held. Actually, what she didn’t know was that there were more shocking surprises ahead; more than finding a bra in his room. Something shocking happened one fateful day. It turns out that Saint had an interview at a gospel media television show. The interviewer was a gentleman and they talked about life related topics and finally came to his personal life matter. The interviewer asked if he was secretly married or in any relationship because he hardly ever gave out any information about his personal life. Saint smiled faintly and said; “I’m just focused on my good works to humanity and also using my career to bless lives, those are my core priorities right now. Women are blessed beings and need to be pampered by we men, I believe God also had me in mind when creating and have created my missing rib. She’s out there somewhere and I know we would meet someday but for now, I’m focused on other things”. Just imagine the disappointment Rose felt when she realised that Saint didn’t even acknowledge her existence in his life or even at-least tell the interviewer that there was someone he was seeing to find out if things will work out. The fact that he didn’t even behave as someone that had a lady in his life was heartbreaking. That very day was the scheduled day Rose was supposed to visit Saint again. She waited for his call for long but it wasn’t forth coming, she called him after a little while but he wasn’t picking up. Unable to control her hurting emotions, she drove down to his house unannounced and used the spare key she was with to open up the door. Unfortunately, Saint wasn’t home yet so Rose sat on his couch and waited for him to come back because she knew he was in town, as they spoke the previous day. If Rose knew that her heart was about to get broken the more by coming to his house that day, she wouldn’t have made the mistake of coming at all. The interview shock was little compare to what was about to happen that day. About an hour later, there were sounds on the door lock and it seemed as though someone was trying to insert a key but it wasn’t entering. Rose figured it could be Saint and hurriedly headed to the door to open it up. Immediately the door opened, her heart dropped at the sight of Saint with a beautiful looking lady. Saint was surprised as to what she was doing in his house without his consent. “What in God’s name are you doing here? Did you call me before coming over?” he angrily asked. The lady he came with sighed and walked inside. She knowingly hit Rose with her shoulder and never bothered to say ‘Sorry’ afterwards. coolval stories Short of words and with a teary eyes, Rose looked into Saint’s eyes and said; “Wow! It’s so good to see how much I meant to you. Did you even mean anything you said to me? At this point you could pass for a Devil”. Saint smiled faintly and said; “Get your entitled self out of my house and give me my keys before you do so”. Rose’s eyes opened widely and she screamed “Wow!”. A Two Faced Lover (episode 4) There’s a popular saying that goes; “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” and it’s safe to say that it’s entirely true. A woman can be anything you want her to be depending on the way you treat her. Majority might question any reason Rose had to be extremely furious at Saint but before you judge her, first remember that Saint was the same person that put her in that situation. How can you promise heaven and earth to a woman you can’t even cross a bridge for? How can you manipulate a lady into falling deeply in love with you and think it’s OK to treat her like trash few days after she gave her body to you out of the love you promised her? Even an articulated person will lose their mind if they were the one in Rose’s shoes. Saint felt he had won the game but never knew that it was the beginning of his downfall. After the rude response Saint gave to Rose, she folded her arms in shock and couldn’t close her mouth properly. It felt as though everything was just a bad dream and wasn’t actually happening in real life. Too bad that it was her reality and there was no running away from it, so all she could do was face it head on. “I should have known, I should have known you were a big lying devil. How could I be so naive and ignorant not to see the huge handwriting on the wall? How could I be so blind not to see through you and know that all you just wanted was a piece of me? This is so much coming from a supposed highly respectable angel like you. Who would ever believe that the almighty Saint was a chronic womaniser, a cheat and a lair? You are a big hypocrite who doesn’t even practice what he preaches; you contradict your own words when you are in private. Tueh! I must run you down even if it’s the last thing I do to pay you back for hurting me this way” Rose soberly said with tears falling off her eyes. When she was done talking, Saint didn’t even utter a word to her neither did he try to defend himself because he felt there was no need to do so. He gently held the door handle and opened it for her to leave; of which she shamefully did. Never in a thousand years did Rose ever imagine to be treated that way by a man. To start with, she was beautiful, smart and had a charming personality; so what more could a man ever want again? She actually had confidence in herself and always knew that any man that got her was lucky; little wonder why she never suspected that Saint was out to play her, despite all those admirable qualities. One thing Rose knew for sure was that Saint wasn’t going to go scot-free for his actions; not after treating her like dirt and inflicting such amount of pains on her. Throughout that day, she cried her eyes out and refused to eat anything. It was so bad that she sat under the shower all night without minding being exposed to cold and eventually running a high temperature. It was such a pitiable situation for the heartbroken lady and the only thing she felt at that moment was ‘Revenge’. While Rose was experiencing a mental breakdown, Saint was busy having the time of his life with the lady he came home that day with. It’s safe to assume you already know what went down that night at his house because we all know who he is. The sad thing was that not for once did Saint think of his rude attitude towards Rose, neither did he feel slightly guilty for how he treated her. Matter of fact, he didn’t even consider that incident as anything serious. He only saw it as a case of a woman that wanted more love than he was willing to give; but who could blame Rose after he instigated the whole thing by telling lies and promising her what he wasn’t willing to give. Well, every thief has that last robbery that leads to their doom and Rose was the beginning of Saint’s doom, but it hadn’t dawned on him yet. If only he knew that not all ladies were to be messed with, he probably would have applied caution but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. Days and weeks after that incident, Saint completely erased Rose from his ‘Call Girls’ list and never contacted her again. Chat MartinMartino on zero eight one eighty thirty fourteen twenty one to be added to his WhatsApp group.As an unapologetic emotionless person that he was, moving on was very easy and didn’t require much effort; unlike Rose’s case. It wasn’t that easy for her to get over the fact that she was used and dumped by a man she saw a future with and felt loved her genuinely. One of the things that hurt Rose the most was the way Saint shamefully ended things with her and embarrassed her in his house that very day. The fact that he hadn’t even called to apologise since the incident happened, made things worse. Whenever Rose remembered the fact that Saint slept with her, she cried bitterly because she felt used and violated. “He must pay, I can’t let him just go like that after hurting me this way. He must pay, I just can’t leave him!” she always muttered to herself. Well, we all know that when anger and pain is harboured for too long, it becomes dangerous. At that point, the only thing Rose wanted was Revenge for all she was going through. Day and night, all she thought of was what possible ways to get back at Saint. Deep down, she knew that she wouldn’t stop until he felt the same way she was feeling. Day in day out, Rose would Rage in anger as she secretly scrolled through Saint’s social media accounts. It killed her deeply whenever she watched a video clip of him pretending to be the ‘Saviour of the world’ whereas he was a wolf in sheep clothing. The fact that Saint behaved as though he was Jesus neighbour whenever he was in public, made her feel like s—–g the life out of him because she knew he was far from anything godly or upright. “Just take a look at this clown, how can someone be this two faced? My God! It’s about time people knew him for his true character and not for this camouflage attitude. Who would even believe that the almighty life coach that talks about good living and tackles sensitive life issues, has a truck load of women he changes every now and then? Hmmm, I must expose him even if it’s the last thing I do on earth” Rose angrily said. Despite having plans of exposing Saint, Rose wasn’t able to execute any of them because she didn’t have any physical access to him since after that incident at his house. Also, she hadn’t been able to find the perfect time or way to execute the numerous agenda she had planned out. While Rose was there looking for ways to run Saint down and ruin his image, he was busy touring the state they resided in. He had events upon events to attend to so he didn’t have time for any personal outing at all. Rose was hoping to publicly confront and disgrace him in front of many people so they could video and post on social media, which will eventually dent his image and ruin his reputation. Well, it seemed as though luck was on Saint’s side but not for too long. One fateful morning, Rose arrived at the office and the television in the reception area was on. She reluctantly looked to see what was showing and it was an interview session with the one man she hated with all her heart. Curious to see what the interview was all about, she stood at the reception area and listened attentively. Turns out that it was a ‘Live’ interview that required people from over the world to call in and ask Saint any question of their choice. Immediately Rose figured what was going on, she hurriedly dialed the number on the screen so she could also talk live and ask Saint whatever she wanted to ask. Bullseye! That was the perfect opportunity for her to strike and she wasn’t going to back down on any chance she had to show him pepper. Few seconds after Rose dialed the number, the call came in live on the interview and she was waiting for them to pick up so she could strike. “We have an incoming call for you now, ready? One, two, pick!” the interviewer said to Saint. He sat up to listen attentively to what the caller was going to say; just like he did with previous calls. “Hello, this is Kongo TV, tell us your name and how we may help you?” the interviewer excitedly asked, “My name is Rose and I have a question for our life coach” Rose bluntly replied. At the mention of the name ‘Rose’, Saint’s heart skipped a beat and he silently prayed that it wasn’t the Rose he knew, but unfortunately it was! The interviewer directed the call to Saint and told Rose to go on with her question. Unknowingly to the interviewer, a bomb was about to be dropped that would scatter the show and throw it off balance. “Hi Rose, this is life coach Saint, we have just two minutes so let’s make it count. How may I help you?” Saint said. Before they knew it, Rose dropped a bomb. “Mr Saint, I want to know why you are such a hypocrite. You lied, slept with me, used and dumped me. How many more ladies have you done that to huh? You are a demon and pretender, I haven’t even started with you yet and will not stop till the whole world see your true colour” she angrily said. Saint was dead shocked and before Rose could talk further, the interviewer shouted “Cut!”. A Two Faced Lover (episode 5) Revenge isn’t always a suitable approach to solving relationship issues but most times, it is the best because some ill mannered people need to have a taste of their own medicine once in a while. If you can’t eat it, then don’t serve it. You can’t expect to have your way all the time while treating people badly and like trash. Everyone has their limits and once you push them beyond that limit, get ready for anything that happens next because they will come at you with all the strength they have got left. Saint had stepped on so many toes and it was his turn to get stepped on so he knows how it feels. Women are nurturers and have the ability to give back to you in ten folds whatever you give to them. Rose had nurtured the pain Saint inflicted on her heart and it was time for him to receive it back in double portion. Well, it seems as though the battle line had just been drawn! Immediately the interviewer instructed his media crew to cut Rose’s call, they swiftly did so and the call was disconnected. After the awkward phone call session ended, the entire interview studio was dead silent. Everyone gave each other an awkward stare and they all redirected their stare to the man on the hot seat, which was Saint. Due to the fact that no one saw that bomb coming, it took a little while before the interviewer got back to his senses and continued the interview. In order to be professional, the interviewer covered the severe awkwardness with laughter and told Saint that things like that normally happened on the show. “Wow, that was unexpected but not to worry, we get calls like this from disrespectful callers who intentionally want to play games. Let’s take a commercial break and we will be right back” The interviewer said and they went on a short break. Immediately the cameras stopped rolling, Saint took a deep breath as he sat there still short of words. The interviewer tried to cheer him up just so he could get himself back together for the next round of the interview. While Saint sat there still in shock, the interviewer walked up to the media crew to instruct them not to receive any more calls after the commercial break. While everyone conversed from a distance, Saint couldn’t bear their low-key comments about him. Unable to bear the side eyes and distant murmur from the crew, he got up and shamefully walked away from the interview studio. Immediately he left, the interviewer hurriedly ran after him. “Where are you going to? We still aren’t done with the interview and the commercial break will soon be over” The interview guy nervously said, “I’m sorry but I can’t do this, I can’t continue with the interview” Saint said and hastened his steps out of the building. On seeing that there was no way they could stop him from leaving, the interview guy ran back to the studio to continue with the show because the commercial break was almost over. A day that was supposed to be a good one turned out to be a disaster after one phone call, so imagine what would have happened if it was two phone calls. There was fire on the mountain already because everywhere was hot; Saint was highly devastated, the interview host and media company were pissed at him for walking away, Rose was angry that she didn’t say more than she did, Saint’s manager was blowing his phone up with calls and his potential clients were also calling as well. There was just so much happening at once and it almost drove Saint crazy. For once in his life, he gets to experience first-hand what it feels like to be in real pain and heartbreak. He was extremely furious with Rose for her actions and wanted to head down to her office and unleash his anger on her; but at the same time, he knew that his past actions had made her ruthless so she was ready to go down any path with him. As people kept calling Saint from all angle, he was also calling Rose back-to-back but she unfortunately wasn’t picking up. He called her countlessly and screamed out in anger whenever the phone rang till the end without being picked. “Aaaahhhhhh” he groaned in pain as he drove; “where did I meet this kind witch from? This girl has killed me, which kind of girl is this one that I carry myself and give? I must deal with her, she doesn’t know who I am” he angrily said. While it seemed like the whole world was about to come to an instant end on Saint’s part, Rose was busy smiling at the office all through that day. She even went as far as buying food for her colleagues and everyone was surprised and even began to inquire if it was her birthday. Have you ever felt that unexplainable good feeling that overtakes a person after they repay someone back for a bad deed that was done to them? Majority aren’t familiar with this payback feeling because they usually don’t like to take matters into their own hands but rather leave the Revenge to God. Well, either ways, there’s this feeling you get when someone pays for something horrible they did to you. It doesn’t make you a bad person to feel that way, but rather makes you human because bad people deserve to have a taste of their own medicine every now and then. Rose wasn’t a horrible person for feeling happy after supposedly ruining Saint’s image on national television; not after how he led her on, slept with her, broke her heart and humiliated her to top everything up. Haba! Who wouldn’t get pissed and lose their common sense of reasoning? One of the worst things that can happen to a person’s emotional and mental health is to see the person that inflicted pain on them, walking freely like nothing happened while they suffer. No one deserves to take trash and die in silence while their abuser lives their best life as if someone isn’t going through pain at their expense. Saint set the music, so it was his turn to dance to it! That day was such an emotionally draining day for Saint as a lot of people were on his case. The interview had gone viral and got so many people talking about it. Saint’s social media accounts were blowing up with comments of different opinion and criticism concerning the interview. The ladies Saint had slept with in the past opened fake accounts and exposed him the more on the comment sections. Things actually went beyond that as days passed by. Sponsors started pulling out from Saint’s seminars and he also lost major gigs with Big media houses. The tour he was on before the incident had to pause because his sponsors weren’t willing to go ahead with their initial deal. Just when we thought the worst had happened, it turns out that it was actually just the beginning. While everyone was still digesting the interview incident, another bomb was about to be detonated. Turns out that some of the ladies Saint had Brutally manhandled in the past, started reaching out to media houses, blogs and vlogs for interviews. Most media houses turned them down but some desperate ones took up the offer and made documentaries with their stories. What made matters worst was the fact that these ladies didn’t know each other personally so they all contacted different media houses on their own. Due to that, there were so many stories from different sources concerning one man which was Saint. Imagine having numerous confirmation to a particular rumour, wouldn’t the tendency of believing it’s authenticity be on the high? The different stories that filled the Internet gradually began to break the ‘Halo Effect’ that had surrounded Saint’s personality and image for a very long time. His die-hard followers began to slowly lower their voices during arguments on the Internet, as the scandal and allegations began to get more convincing. Due to the backlash from the media and also all the financial loses Saint was incurring, he fell into depression and lost weight in no time. Things became bad that he even stopped showing up at public gatherings so as to avoid side eyes or distant murmuring from people that knew what was going on. It killed Saint slowly to realise that everything he had worked hard for years to get, was gradually going down the drain. It felt as though he had hit an irrecoverable low moment in his life and it killed him daily whenever he recalled that Rose was the master person behind all his misery. At that point, if there was someone Saint hated with passion and wanted dead, then it was Rose. If God gave men individual privilege to rule the world for just a second, Saint would end Rose’s life the very minute that power was conferred to him. While he was eating himself up and wallowing in depression, Rose was busy laughing at any new article or video about him that hit the Internet. “Na wa oh! So this man have enemies to this extent? It took me to talk before all of them gradually began to crawl out of their shell. Wow!” She shockingly said. Due to the fact that Saint was already going through so much heartache, Rose decided to remove her hands from his matter and backed down on every plan she was initially having to further run him down. She felt he was already going through so much and there was no need to further add to his pain. Unfortunately for Rose, while she had decided to let go of Saint and move on with her life, he was about to flip the coin and deal with her mercilessly for ruining his life. Something unexpected happened one fateful day that almost led to world war 3. It happened one evening that Rose was at a shopping mall buying groceries and wasn’t aware that Saint was in the same mall. He came there to meet up with someone that was contemplating on offering a gig to him that would bring money to his pocket. It’s been a rough couple of months and it greatly affected Saint’s financial status. At that point, he was desperate for any gig that could bring him money, as a lot of sponsors and clients abandoned him due to the dent on his image. Saint finished up with his meeting and was heading towards the parking lot when he caught sight of Rose. “Is this who I think it is? I just pray it isn’t her” he said as he took steps to get closer to the person. Before he could even reach where the person stood, she turned and looked towards his direction; Lo & Behold, It was Rose! Immediately Saint’s doubts were confirmed, he rushed to where Rose stood and before she could even figure out what was going on, a big slap landed on her cheek from behind. After receiving the slap, she furiously turned to see who slapped her and was extremely shocked when she realised it was Saint. Without wasting a single second, Rose retaliated and landed a hot slap on Saint’s cheek too. She furiously grabbed his shirt and said; “You must be mad, you will kill me today!”. A Two Faced Lover (episode 6) There’s a popular saying that “you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have”. Every human walking the surface of this earth have their limits on which they can tolerate things, and hear me when I say you don’t want to be the person to push them beyond that limit. Even the softest heart can become as hard as stone when you abuse and maltreat it. The worst thing a person can do is to be the one that brings out the beast from an initially lovely person, because they would never forgive you for bringing out the worst in them and you will definitely be the first to taste their wrath. Saint had succeeded in making Rose a bitter person; this is the same lady that once loved him and was excited at a future with him. The pain he inflicted on her had made her bitter and hateful towards anything that concerned him. The fact that Saint even had the guts to lay his hands on Rose after she had made up her mind to let go of the past and move on, had succeeded in reopening the wound she was at the verge of closing. At that moment, the beast in her had awaken and she was ready to create a scene that had never been seen before. D–n the consequences and eyes balls because Rose’s temper had skyrocketed to Mars and a Broadway show was inevitable! After the slap retaliation, Saint became more furious and so was Rose. She held him tightly on his shirt and squeezed it as though she wanted to choke him. At that moment, few people had began to notice what was going on and gradually made their way to the scene. “How dare you? Who do you think you are? You must be mad!” Rose flared up. Saint forcefully knocked her hands off him and tried to remove her hands from his shirt but couldn’t because she was holding it with every single strength she had. “You are a coward, did you hear me well? I said you are a coward! Listen, if you hit my hands again, I will make sure you rot in the police cell. Look at this clown of a human, Saint you are a hypocrite, a coward, a two faced human being and a chronic womaniser. Yes I said it! That’s what you are” she continued in intense anger. While hell broke loose, people started gathering the scene and few people recognised who Saint was. Due to the fact that they were aware of the controversies that was surrounding him of late on the Internet, they brought out their phones and started recording while others tried to separate the fight. Things got so heated that the Mall security officials had to hurry down to the scene to resolve the issue. Due to the fact that so many guys where present there, Saint couldn’t raise his hands on Rose again because he feared they might jump on him for beating a lady. Everything that was happening was extremely embarrassing for Saint that he secretly started regretting confronting Rose in the first place. “What have I gotten myself into? I should have just ignored this crazy lady and head home” he thought to himself as the issue escalated. With the help of the security officials and concerned people, they were able to plead with Rose to let go and pardon Saint for his actions. It wasn’t an easy plea but she eventually released his shirt from her hands and fiercely stormed out. She headed towards the parking lot, entered her car and drove off leaving Saint behind at the scene. He was answering some questions with the security officials because they held him hostage for some time, but finally let him go. As Saint walked away from the scene and headed to where he parked his car, Shame almost killed him. At that moment, he wished that the ground could just open and swallow him up because the eye balls on him were just too much. Deep down, he regretted his actions but it was already too late because the deed had already been done and it was just a matter of few hours before it hit the Internet. Just as predicated, in just few hours the incident went viral. Social media blew up the story and even added some lies to the story to twist it in such a way that it will bring massive traffic. Before the next morning, the news was almost in every blog and was even broadcasted on television stations. Imagine waking up to over a hundred articles written from different blogs and media sites about you? The funny thing was that everyone twisted the story one way of the other and that resulted to different versions of one story. Saint was weak and couldn’t eat anything all day. His phones where blowing up with calls for interviews that he even had to switch it off. It felt like his whole world was crumbling and it killed him beyond words can say. On the other hand, Rose wasn’t that bothered or moved about what happened because not too many people knew her and she wasn’t a celebrity, unlike Saint. Despite the fact that few people recognised her in the viral video, she didn’t see it as a big deal because confrontations like that happened all over the world everyday so there was nothing to be ashamed of. The only thing she did was to explain to her bosses at work and succeeded in making them understand that she was attacked by Saint for reasons unknown to her. They saw it as self defence and pardoned her. With the way things were looking, the only person at the losing end was Saint because he was a public figure that had numerous skeletons in his cupboard. He was the one that lived a double standard life, the one that lied to his followers and deceived the masses, he was the one that had a dirty secret of being a ‘Dominant’ who loved to exploit women but didn’t want commitment and he was the one that was living a Big Lie. This is exactly why being real will always be a hundred times better than living a fake life. The worst thing you can do to yourself is to live a Lie because one day, your true self must surely surface. See, you can never pretend or deceive people for too long because it’s just a matter of time before you will eventually get tired of your own fakeness and subconsciously start revealing your true self. If you pretend to be nice when you are a demon behind closed doors, one day you must show your true colour in public. If you pretend to be a giver when the cameras are rolling but a stingy person when no one is watching, then it’s just a matter of time before that lie will wear you out. There’s nothing as easy and beautiful as living your truth and not a lie because when you live your truth, you will never crack even when tossed into a burning fire. It’s apparent that Saint never took life lessons from experienced people and clearly wasn’t befitting to be called a Life Coach. How can you give what you don’t have? How can you pour from an empty cup? How can you preach something you don’t practice? How can you represent something you don’t believe in? There’s certainly no way it’s possible and that’s why there was an expiry date attached to Saint’s success. Due to everything that was happening in Saint’s life, he became sober and even went as far as deactivating all his social media accounts. It was such a humiliating and humbling period in his life. It was then that all his bad deeds and mischief started to dawn on him. He began to recall all the ladies he had toyed with and how much he truly hurt them. Gradually, Saint’s hard shell began to crack and eventually broke into pieces. He couldn’t stand the pain and pressure so he travelled out of the country so as to find peace and go far away from all the drama surrounding his life and name. Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t still find peace nor happiness; despite travelling a long distance away from home. That period was so emotionally draining for Saint that he lost excess weight. His family and closed friends still loved him and were there for him no matter what. Thanks to Saint’s family members otherwise he could have committed suicide or harm himself. He took everyday one step at a time and prayed for peace each day. As time went by, Saint began to feel the need to see a therapists to help him with his predicament. He was able to get in contact with one at the place he travelled to and a ‘one week’ therapy session was conducted. During that one week therapy session, Saint wasn’t really feeling the impact initially until about the third day. The therapy session started normally but things got heated and went from zero to hundred real quick. “Why did you come back for the 3rd time? Tell me Saint, what do you truly want?” the therapist asked in a calm soft tone. Saint looked into her eyes as he scratched the leather of the chair he was seated on. “I need help and haven’t gotten it since we started this therapy session” he soberly said, “What kind of help do you seek?” she asked, “I don’t know, maybe peace” he sadly revealed. The therapist smiled faintly and looked into his teary eyes. She knew what his problem was and wanted to help him but needed him to truly desire the help he sought because only then can he truly change. “What could you have done differently if you can take back the hands of time?” she asked. Saint paused for a while and said; “I would have practised what I preached, treat women more nicely and maybe truly love someone”. Saint’s reply was heartwarming and gave the therapist a reason to look forward to a genuine change in him. She knew he was sober and broken and that was the perfect time for a change to take place. “I want you to do something for me tonight, send an apology to everyone you have hurt in the past. If there’s any reason as to why you can’t reach a particular person, send that apology to yourself and read it out loud. Do this and I promise you that you will wake up a better person than you are now” the therapist said. The task given was quite difficult because there were so many people Saint had wronged in the past. He knew they hated him and didn’t want to set their eyes on him but he had to do the task since it had the power of making him feel better. That night, he sent out an apology to every lady he had hurt in the past and also to all his ‘Call Girls’. For those he wasn’t able to reach due to one thing or the other, he read the apology to himself as the therapist instructed. Everything went smoothly till it got to the last person which was Rose. When it got to her turn, he felt a different way and instantly knew that she was indeed special from the rest and needed to render her apology face to face. He postponed hers till when he travelled back home. It was such an uplifting task and it made Saint more sober and a bit better. Days passed and life suddenly started looking differently to saint than the way it used to be. He surprisingly wasn’t moved by the media or what people said about him because he had owned up his mistakes and was deliberately making amends. The therapy session was helpful and had impacted him greatly. After a while, Saint travelled back home to continue with his life. The Internet tension had died down a bit and everyone had moved on from his story. He invested some of the money he had on a new business venture and started all over again. It was such a humbling experience for Saint but was worth it because it brought out the best in him. As life went on, Saint always carried Rose in his spirit. He was aware he hadn’t apologised to her yet but was hesitant because he didn’t know where she lived so as to pay her a surprise visit but the good news was that he knew where she worked. Most times, Saint used his fake social media accounts to stalk Rose to see how she had been doing. He would spend hours scrolling through her pictures and looking at them over and over again. With time, he started noticing that his heart skipped severally beats whenever he was lost in her thoughts. Deep down, Saint knew Rose was special and kept wondering why he treated her so badly. He always felt ashamed whenever he recalled that he hit her that fateful day at the mall. It was always traumatising whenever he thought of it. Unable to hold back any longer, he did something unexpected one fateful day. It happened one evening that Saint drove down to Rose’s workplace and waited outside for her to close and come out. At around 6pm, she walked out from the office building, entered her car and drove off. As she left, he secretly followed her behind until he got to her destination. By the time they arrived at her house, the sky was already dark. As Rose alighted, Saint got down from his car too and gently walked up to her. Immediately she saw him, she almost dropped dead due to shock because he was the last person she ever thought would be standing right in front of her in her compound. “Why are you here? What do you want? Or do you want to slap me again?” She angrily inquired. With tears in Saint’s eyes, he took a deep breath and soberly said; “I know I am the last person you want to talk to or hear anything from but please hear me out. I hate myself for making you the person you had become, because the Rose I met at the restaurant that fateful day was a sweetheart and charming lady. I was stupid to have hurt you that way but I know better now. I’m so sorry Rose, I’m so so sorry. Can you please forgive me?”. Rose didn’t know when tears fell off her eyes too. She looked into Saint’s eyes and could tell that he was truly sorry, but it’s quite unfortunate that she wasn’t ready to render forgiveness to the one man that hurt her more than anyone had ever done and succeeded in turning her into a beast. She shed a few tears and said; “I’m sorry, but there’s no forgiveness in my heart for you. A Two Faced Lover (episode 7) To err is human but to forgive is divine; forgiveness will never be old fashion or outdated because it benefits both the offender and victim. Being angry is part of life and not a bad thing either, but the problem starts when you let the pain and grudge linger for too long because it might develop into something more drastic than the initial reason you ever got angry in the first place. As long as we still breathe the air we have never for once been charged for, then you should never hold back forgiveness to people that wronged you; talk more of when they realise their mistakes and ask for your forgiveness. Most times, we have to go through a rough path in life just so we can appreciate life more. Saint had to hit rock bottom before realising how messed up and selfish he had been in the past. It took the world to be against him before he could retrace his steps and make amends with his past. In that sober moment of Saint’s life, it dawned on him how empty and void his life had been and also how much he wanted to commit to someone for the first time ever. The fact that Rose occupied a significant space in his heart, made her very special from the rest. He knew deep down that he was willing to try with her if she gave him a chance. Well, too bad because Rose wasn’t even willing to render forgiveness to him, talk more of being in any form of relationship with him. The reply Rose gave to Saint sent chilled reactions all over his body. To be fair, he knew the forgiveness process wasn’t going to be an easy one, as he wasn’t expecting her to forgive him so easily; not after all the horrible things he did to her in the past. The fact that Rose was tearing up as she spoke to Saint made his heart melt like candle wax. He wanted to wipe the tears off her eyes but she shifted her face and moved it towards another direction to avoid any physical contact with him. “Rose please I’m so sorry, I’m saying this from the depths of my heart. Tell me anything you want me to do to make you forgive me and I promise to do it in a twinkle of an eye. It’s been a rough couple of months but I assure you that I’m a changed man now, I am deliberately working on myself each day just to see to it that I have nothing to do with my past again. To be honest, I think I owe you a big ‘thank you’ because you are the one that brought out the best in me. You deserve everything good and I promise to make it up to you. Please give me one last chance to make things right with you” Saint soberly said. By the time he was done talking, Rose’s face was covered with tears. She couldn’t hold back her emotions for some strange reasons. It was hard for her to forgive a man that was responsible for so many sad incidents in her life. To make matters worst, Rose didn’t trust Saint anymore and even felt he was lying all through. The fact that he lied about so many things in the past had succeeded in killing any chances he had for her to ever trust him again. Despite the fact that Rose could tell that Saint was truly sorry for all the bad deeds he had done in the past, a part of her still felt like he had an ulterior motive behind everything. Forgiving him was far from the content in her bucket list, so it wasn’t going to be an easy task at all. After being mute for a while, Rose finally spoke. “To be honest, I don’t have anything else to say to you other than what I said before. I’ll leave now, bye!” she managed to say and sadly walked away. As she went inside the building, Saint still stood there looking at her. His heart was crushed and his eyes were teary. It felt as though a huge part of him was taken away and thrown into the river. Feeling devastated, Saint sadly walked back to his car. For over an hour, he sat inside his car thinking and couldn’t move. Rose was aware that he still hadn’t left because she could see his car from her balcony. “Why is he still here? Oh Lord, what exactly does this man want from me? I still have a soft spot for him but will never make the mistake I made the other time by falling for him. What does he want? I feel bad” she soberly said to herself. In as much as a big part of Rose wanted to go back downstairs and talk to Saint, she just had to control herself by putting her emotions on check. When a person goes through a rough path in life, it makes them stronger and tougher than they used to. Rose had learnt not to be controlled by her emotions so easily; so due to that, she wasn’t too moved. After about an hour later, Saint finally drove off and headed home. On his way home, he kept thinking of nothing else than Rose. He thought of how to get her to genuinely forgive him and he began to look for ways to back his words with actions. “How can I get her to see that I have truly changed and that my intentions are genuine?” he wondered as he drove home. Saint knew it wasn’t going to be easy to find his way back into Rose’s heart and win her trust again, but he also wasn’t willing to back down either. On the other hand, Rose was sober all night and couldn’t stop thinking about all that happened earlier. Everything just felt weird because she wasn’t expecting such at all. To be truly honest, Rose still felt something for Saint in her heart. She hadn’t succeeded to completely erasing him from her mind and also, the day they made love was still very fresh in her memory. No man had ever handled her the way Saint did, so it was a bit difficult for her to move on completely. Also, the fact that he came apologising made matters a little worse because he had somehow found his way back into her mind and thoughts. Most people have a hard time moving on completely from a relationship they were once in, because they still haven’t met anyone that rock their world more than their Ex’s did. Pray never to find yourself in that unsatisfactory and comparism bottomless pit because it usually leads to incompleteness and unhappiness in any new relationship you enter. Apparently, Rose was still not over Saint but held back her feelings because he really hurt her in the past and that was quite a lot to forget and move on from. She was afraid of being vulnerable again so as not to regret it afterwards. Days and weeks passed by but Saint never stopped apologising and trying to make things right with Rose. He sent her a text message everyday, expressing how much he was sorry and wanted to make things up to her. She never replied any of his messages but that didn’t stop him from trying over and over again. Everyday at work, Rose received flowers from a flower company with a note that read; “I’m sorry!”. The flowers never stopped coming and it made her low-key happy even though she pretended otherwise. Her whole office was filled with flowers that she even started giving some away to her colleagues. Due to Saint consistency in seeking for Rose’s forgiveness, her hard shell began to crack gently and her heart suddenly melted. Whenever the flowers came each day, she would smile till her cheeks hurt and it usually made her day bright. She wanted to call him so bad but held herself not to do so. It was hard for Rose to keep concealing her feelings but who could blame her for holding back? not after all the terrible things Saint did in the past. Asides trying to get Rose’s forgiveness, Saint had his new business to nurture and take care of. It wasn’t too long before it started generating good profits and his life started taking great shape again. In as much as Saint’s business was now generating money, he knew that there was still something missing in his life. Whenever he was alone, he realised that he needed a companion; someone that would be his own and one that he could love totally. At that point, he began to realise that he was ready for commitment and no one was befitting enough to take that spot in his life than the very woman that made him the changed man he now was; which was Rose. Saint figured that if there was anyone that deserved the new version of him, then it might as well be Rose because she really did love him in the past. All this contributed to the more reason why Saint wanted to win Rose back by first seeking her forgiveness no matter what it took. Despite the fact that she wasn’t even giving him any signal that the forgiveness was forth coming, he still wasn’t discouraged. Everything remained the same till one fateful day. It happened that it was Rose’s birthday and Saint got to find out through her social media account. He didn’t want to call or text because he knew she wouldn’t respond the text nor pick up the call. After work that day, he hurried down to a cake store and bought a nice cake with the inscription “Happy Birthday, I am sorry”. While at work, Rose had an awesome time with her colleagues and celebrated her birthday with them. She retired home at close of work and wasn’t aware that Saint had something up his sleeves. Few hours after Rose returned home, she heard a knock on the door and reluctantly went to see who was knocking. Immediately she opened the door, her heart raced when she set her eyes on Saint standing there with a box of cake. At that moment, Rose’s heart was on a marathon race and Saint could hear her breathe in and out. “Happy Birthday” he calmly said and handed the cake over the her, “Thank you” she replied as she collected the cake. After handing the cake over, Saint didn’t know what else to do so he figured it was best he left. “I just came to give you that, happy birthday once more” he said and was about to walk away when Rose stopped him. “Do you want to stay so we can eat the cake together and maybe celebrate well?” she asked in a low tone. Saint looked into her shiny eyes and nodded ‘Yes’ afterwards. They entered inside and Rose placed the cake on the centre table and opened the carton. When she saw the “I am sorry” inscription, her heart melted the more and she didn’t know when tears fell off her eyes. Immediately Saint saw the tears on her eyes, he gently got up from where he sat and walked closer to her. “Please stop right there, don’t come too close because you’ll just use and dump me again. Saint why are you doing all this? Please stop if you know you are going to play with my heart again. I beg you stop, please! I don’t have the strength for lies and heartbreak” Rose said as she burst into uncontrollable tears. Saint became sober and knelt down before her. He held her legs and sobbed bitterly too. “I promise this time is different, I swear! It took me a long time to realise that you were made for me. Please give me one more shot, I promise you wouldn’t regret it. I need your forgiveness but also want you back. Please Rose, I beg you!” he soberly said. The atmosphere became filled with emotions and Rose didn’t know when she cried and knelt down with Saint too. She held his head and looked into his eyes and uttered those golden words “I forgive you”. Immediately Rose said those words, Saint’s heart dropped and it felt like his life began all over again. They looked into each other’s eyes as they cried like little babies. Unable to hold back the burning sensation that filled the air, Saint said “Oh Gosh, I love you so much” and planted a hot kiss on Rose’s lips. A Two Faced Lover (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 there. “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 thoughts. 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 interested. 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 matter what. 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 face. “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 a drink. 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 message. 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”. A Two Faced Lover (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!”. A Two Faced Lover (episode 10) Last episode! Most times in life, you just have to take the bull by the horn when it comes to addressing some issues because any little time wasted could worsen or complicate things. There are some situations in life that doesn’t require a gentle approach to solve, but rather a rugged one. If Saint had stayed back in Rose’s house to explain things to her and try to prove his innocence, the issue would have taken a longer time before it gets resolved because she would have probably asked for some space to put herself together; now we all know that the more space couples take apart, the more chances that things might never be the same again and they might never get back together. It was such a brilliant move that Saint made to hurry down to Patricia’s house that same day to get to the root of the accusation levied against him. At that moment, a serious confrontation was inevitable! Patricia was beyond shocked when she realised that Saint brought Rose with him to her house. Never in a thousand years would she have thought that her evil deeds were going to backfire at her in such short notice. She probably felt that Rose wouldn’t have a problem believing her set-up plans, due to the kind of lifestyle Saint lived in the past. Too bad Patricia wasn’t aware that Rose was there during the worst times of Saint’s life and was able to quickly absorb the shock that came with the naked pictures and message she sent. I guess she should have done her homework well before pulling such stunt on the promising couple; it was already too late and it was time for her to dance to the music she played. “Start explaining because I can’t wait to find out how you were able to obtain naked pictures of me and also how you were able to get Rose’s contact. Are you a serial killer or what? Speak because I am at the verge of getting you arrested now” Saint furiously said. Rose was quiet all through and just leaned on the car listening attentively to everything that was happening. At that point, she could tell that her boo was innocent and was set-up by the strange lady. But despite knowing that he was innocent, she still wanted to watch the whole drama unfold. On seeing that Saint was extremely furious, Patricia confessed her evil deeds to them. She narrated everything and revealed her intentions for doing what she did. After her narration, she apologised to Saint and Rose for any harm or trouble she might have caused. “I am very sorry for doing what I did, I honestly don’t know what came over me. I guess I was devastated at the thought of Saint being with someone else that I let my emotions get the best of me. I can’t seem to fathom what I was thinking when I did what I did yesterday, please you guys should temper justice with mercy. I’m sorry!” Patricia soberly said. Due to the apology that was tendered, Rose’s heart melted and she indirectly gave Saint a sign that it was time for them to leave. When he caught her signal, it gladden his heart to know that Rose was convinced he didn’t cheat on her. He took a deep breath and looked at Patricia afterwards. “Thank your stars I have suddenly calmed down because the anger I came here with this evening wasn’t a joke. Please stay away from my relationship because the next time you try something shady like this again, I will deal with you the way you deserve to be dealt with. If I were you, the first thing I would do when I get inside is to pick your phone and delete those pictures you took of me because if I ever see it anywhere again, I will sue you for defamation of character and blackmail. Don’t just try me because I would make sure you don’t go unpunished like you are being left to go scot-free now. Have a nice life and leave me alone” He added and beckoned on Rose to get into the car. Before Patricia could blink her eyes, they zoomed off. It was such a humiliating day for Patricia because she felt like a fool for pulling such stunt. The fact that Rose still didn’t utter a word as everything went down, drove her crazy and made her feel more embarrassed. For fear of being sued and in more trouble, she deleted the nude pictures from her phone immediately she entered inside her house. On the other hand, Rose couldn’t stop staring at Saint as they drove back to her house. Deep down, she felt a bit guilty for not trusting him initial, but who could blame her? I mean the whole thing looked absolutely convincing. As she stole glances at him, he didn’t want to look towards her direction and pretended to be focused on his driving. After about a hour later, they arrived at Rose’s house. Saint didn’t want to alight from the car and enter inside her house because it was already late and he needed to head to his house too. Rose was feeling really bad and didn’t want to get down from the car. She needed to work things out with her man in order for their relationship not to get affected by the incident that just happened. “Baby I’m sorry for not trusting you, I’m so sorry for talking to you rudely this morning and also for not greeting you when you came this evening. I’m sorry my love” Rose calmly said. Saint looked into her eyes and smiled faintly. “It’s not your fault sweetie, I would have reacted same way if I were in your shoes. I want you to know that I love you and would never ever cheat on you. I rather walk away from this relationship than cheat because cheating would only make me look like the old Saint; of which I never want to be again. I actually commend the way you handled things because it isn’t as bad as you think. I love you and want you only. I have to go now, see you tomorrow” he said and pecked her on the cheek. Chat MartinMartino on zero eight one eighty thirty fourteen twenty one to be added to his WhatsApp group The peck Saint gave to Rose wasn’t enough because at that moment, she wanted a large piece of him. She held his shirt and kissed him on the lips. They kissed passionately for a while before she alighted from the car and entered insider her apartment. Rose was grateful to God that her relationship with the man she loved wasn’t at risk and was also happy that he was faithful to her and was committed to what they had. Apparently, Rose wasn’t the only one that was happy as Saint was equally happy too. He held his chest and thanked God that Patricia’s evil plans weren’t fulfilled. They were both extremely happy and valued their relationship the more. As time went on, their relationship waxed stronger and became more authentic. The cheating incident that was intended to cause harm actually made them trust each other more. They became more conscious of what either of them did and were more careful than they used to be. Have you ever benefited from a circumstance that was intended to cause harm to you? Well, at this point it’s safe to say that Rose and Saint’s relationship benefited greatly from Patricia’s evil schemes. When two heart genuinely beats for each other, crisis becomes an elevating ladder in their relationship and not the other way round. As time passed by, Saint began to feel the need to wife Rose. The fact that they were practising abstinence, low-key sped up the whole process. He was dying to feel her body again and knew that the only way it could be possible was if he puts a ring on it. To be fair, Saint also had a lot of reasons why he wanted to wife Rose and not just because of her body. It had gotten to a point where he knew that it was either her or no other person. She was his ride or die and was the only woman that had huge impact on his life. Saint adored Rose and she somehow had a great influence on his day to day decisions. It’s safe to say at this point that they were made for each other. With each passing day, Saint began to make moves on how he would ask Rose to marry him. He kept thinking on the perfect time but was finding it difficult to pick a day. The good thing he did was to buy an engagement ring, while still contemplating on the perfect time to pop the big question. Rose was completely unaware of Saint’s plans because he never gave any clue on what he was up to. The tension continued on his path till one fateful day. Turns out that Saint hid the engagement ring in his cupboard; since he hadn’t made up his mind yet on the perfect time to propose. It happened that Rose came around to his house one Saturday afternoon to cook for him. When she was done cooking, she dished the food for him and went straight to the bathroom to take a shower. After bathing, Rose needed a casual cloth to wear since she was still very much around. She went to Saint’s cupboard to pick one of his singlet because that’s where he normally kept them. As she searched in the cupboard for the perfect singlet to wear, her fingers touched a jewellery case so she picked it up to see what was inside the box. Immediately the box opened, Rose held her mouth as her heart raced. At that moment, there were over a thousand thoughts on her head as to why an engagement ring was in her man’s cupboard. “Oh My God, this isn’t what I think it is” she shockingly said as she gazed at the ring. As Rose was lost in thoughts, she didn’t realise that Saint was behind her observing all that was happening. He actually walked into the room to get something when he saw her with the ring case. Deep down, Saint was happy that Rose found the ring because it only just made things easier for him to do what he had been nervous to do a long time ago. “Do you like it?” Saint asked out of nowhere and Rose immediately turned to see him standing right behind her. Her heart skipped several beats and she was dumbfounded. Saint figured she was having a hard time digesting all that was happening so in order to make things clear, he knelt down and held her hands with his sweaty palms. “Baby, I know you are shocked and didn’t see this coming but I wanted to do this a while back but was too nervous on what the outcome would be so I held back. If there’s anyone I want to spend the rest of my life with, then it’s nobody but you. We started off on a very rough path but just look how far we have come. It has gotten to the extent that I can’t function properly without you. I would never trade our past experience for anything because that’s the foundation of what we have today. I love you so much and want you to be the mother of my children. Roseline Jacobs, will you marry me?” Saint soberly asked. The atmosphere was clouded with an out pour of emotions that Rose didn’t know when she started tearing up. She held her heart and looked into Saint’s eyes. Joy like never before filled her heart and the butterflies in her stomach wouldn’t stop dancing. With tear of joy in her eyes, she said a gentle “Yes” and handed the ring over to him to insert it on her finger. Immediately Saint inserted the ring on Rose’s finger, she kissed his forehead and happily screamed; “Yes babe! We got this on Lock!” Everyone deserves a second chance and should be given one if they genuinely repent from something wrong they did in the past. Don’t be in a hurry to stigmatise someone because change is constant. Always endeavour to live your truth and not a lie because being fake would only do you more harm than good. As you go through this life, make sure that the foundation of anything you ever want to stand the test of time is built on truth, because that’s the surest insurance you can stake the survival of that thing on. Sometimes, it’s good to lose your cool when someone has stepped on your toes long enough, because your reaction might just be the perfect medicine that person needs, in order to turn a new leaf. In all, endeavour to be slow to anger and not be in a hurry to confront your partner when faced with trials like unfaithfulness. A simple conversation and proper communication can solve a whole lot in relationships. Don’t forget to love with all your heart when you eventually find that special someone because we don’t have forever on this earth. Give love your best shot when that time finally comes!
