The Stupid Zone Episode 14





The Stupid zone
Episode 14
Robert had become very possessive and overly jealous after the engagement. I complained about it to my mom but she said he loved me and I needed to adjust some things about my life seeing I was going to be someone's wife very soon.
Robert quized me on every little thing and monitored my every move and it was becoming suffocating. Firstly, I had not expected to receive a ring that soon but I knew he was a good man and so I went with the flow. Maybe I would eventually get to love him as my mother kept on insisting.
My father on the other hand said there was no rush. He said I was still too young and I needed to be absolutely sure. My parents often argued about it but ultimately they both agreed only I had the final say.
I had still bought my vitz even though Robert was very clear about how embarrassing it was for his woman to be moving around in such a car. Well, I put my foot down and whether I was his woman or not, the vitz was mine, bought with my hard earned money and it was staying.
I had still not assessed Robert's fulwameter and my friend had insisted it was something that needed to be done before we tied the knot. I had failed to do anything earlier but this one day I was determined to.
Robert took me to dinner and he was possessive and domineering as usual. We went to a restaurant I did not know but was very nice and secluded. The waiter brought the menus but Robert said we didn't need them and he went ahead and called out what we would eat.
"We will have two Greek salads, filleted fish dipped in vinegar and mashed potatoes without cream." He said.
"Babe, I need the menu. I'm not in fish eating mood today." I argued.
"What would you rather eat that could be better?" he asked me.
I felt offended by his question but I swallowed hard and forced a smile.
"I actually want roasted beef and fries with lots of sauce and mayonaise," I said.
Robert clicked his tongue continuously while he shook his head and looked at me like I was a kid who had asked for candy before a meal.
"So you can get fat?"
"What is that supposed to mean?" I asked angrily.
"You have a perfect body and I want it to stay like that." he said matter of factly.
"and if I get fat?"
"You wont."
"What if......" I began again but he cut me short
"You wont get fat. I wont let that happen."
I was about to throw him a stinker when the waiter came back with the food he had ordered. The waiter also brought some red wine.
"But we didn't order any wine. I don't want her drinking." Robert said.
"It's from that gentleman over there. He says your woman is beautiful and he would like to toast to you for putting a ring on it." the waiter said with a smile not realizing the storm he had brewed as he whisked away very pleased with himself.
"Who is he?"Robert asked with gritted teeth.
"I don't know him." I said trying to be as calm as could be.
"Naomi, I am not playing games with you. Who the fuck is that man?"
"Hey, no need for f-bombs here. I said I don't know him."
"You are lying." he said.
I just smirked and took the wine bottle so I could open it but Robert grabbed it from me and stood up.
"I am going to stash this bottle up your boyfriend's ass." he said as he looked towards the table where the guy who was foolish enough to buy another man's woman wine was seated.
The guy had smiled and raised his wine glass at us after the waiter pointed us towards him and I could see him still smiling oblivious of what was about to happen.
"Robert stop being ridiculous and sit down," I said.
"Now I am Robert hey?"
"Babe this is unreasonable,you will cause a scene."
I had planned on purposefully getting Robert angry but things were playing out that way all on their own without my effort.
Robert stormed towards the guy's table and i ran after him but I could only do so much in my six inch stilletoes that he had insisted I wear even though I told him they made me uncomfortable.
Robert forcefully put the bottle on the table but the other guy seemed unfazed.
"What the hell is this?"
"A 10 year old Chardonnay ," the guy said and smiled.
He was actually very handsome and well built and I couldn't help blushing at the thought that he thought I was beautiful.
"I am not asking what it is, why did you...."Robert began but was cut short.
"That's exactly what you asked me and I mean no harm. I just think you have a gem and you should take care of her," the guy said as he looked at me causing me to instateneously smile.
"Now you are even smiling at him," Robert asked me angrily.
"Babe let's just go before you cause a scene."
"Oh it's a little too late for that. This bastard has to know that no one messes with my woman." Robert said as he held the wine guy by the collar.
"The name is Terence and its rude to touch people you don't know like this," he said as he removed Robert's hands from his neck.
I was surprised that despite all that, Terrence seemed unfazed by Robert's intimating stare.I could tell the people close to us were scared shitless but no, not Terrence.
"Dude if you want to fight, join a boxing club or something,"Terrence said after Robert punched his face. He stood up while touching his cheek as if realigning his jaw and he was surprisingly taller and bigger than Robert.
I could tell Robert was angrier and intimidated so he took me by the hand and rushed me out. He took some money from his wallet when we were at the door and threw it at the waiter who had served us without even counting it. He then practically dragged me to his car while people watched and drove off without waiting for me to settle in or fasten my seat belt.
He drove in silence but I could tell he was fuming. He packed the car at my gate and I quickly opened the door because I just wanted to reach my room and breath, maybe even cry. To say I was embarrassed by his display of foolishness is an understatement. I was scared of him and I needed to do some serious thinking. I was glad I didn't intentionally make him angry because I didn't know if I could handle him.
He however rushed out of the car and pulled me towards him. He leaned me on his car and forcefully tried to kiss me but I turned causing the kiss to land on my cheek instead. He grabbed my face by the chin and forced me to look at him and tears filled my eyes. In that moment, I realized I did not know him at all. He was not the hot Robert I met in class after making a fool of myself in front of the mean lecturer. He was not the Robert who had been all caring,the one who reminded me of my long lost love Richard. In fact, he was nothing like Richard and comparing them  felt like an insult to the man Richard was.
Robert parted my lios open with his grip and took my lips by force. I knew the more I fought him, the more pain I would be in so I surrendered and let him kiss me.
"There,now was that so hard?" he asked as he licked his lips.
I was angry and hungry. Because of his tantrum, we had not even eaten dinner and I had told mom not to leave me any food.
"Don't entertain other men. It makes me angry."he said.
i just nodded my head as I pushed back my tears.
"that's a good girl. i love you,now wipe those tears and smile for daddy."
i wiped the tears that had refused to cooperate despite how much i had negotiated with them not to fall.
"use this," he handed me a hanky as i had been wiping with the back of my hand.
"i forgive you." he said before kissing me again.
i was still wondering what he had for given me for Because u didn't remember doing anything wrong so the kiss caught me unawares. i however recovered quickly and kissed him back.
he went to his car and drove off without even waiting for me to get inside the gaye as he usually did.
i walked straight to my room as i didn't want mom and dad to see i had been crying. i could hear them laugh at what they were watching in the living room so i sneaked passed them and they didn't see me.
i rana hot bath and took my phone so i could play candy crush as i soaked but it rang as soon as i opened the game app.
"Jane, hi" i said to my friend on the other end of the line.
"hey boo. how do it go?"Jane asked.
"how did what go?"
"the dinner, silly. did Terrence show up?"
"wait, what?" i asked in shock my gaped mouth almost reaching my chest.
"I knew you wouldn't do it like you did last time so i sent a little help. you need to know how angry your man gets before you marry him."she said.
i didn't know how to feel about Jane.she was a good friend and i know she meant well but she had over stepped.
"How could you?"
"Thank me later girl." she said.
"how did you even I know where i would be?"
"well your man posted that he was taking his woman to dinner and so i had T follow you."
"who is he?"
"my boyfriend "
"I thought your boyfriend's name was Jacob."
"Yep that's him. We made the name Terrence just for today. Its the name for our first born son."
i couldn't believe Jane. i was too angry to talk to her so i made up an excuse and cut the call.
after the bath, i went to the kitchen to look for something to eat and monwaljed instatling me in the process causing me to drop the ball of cereal I had just made.
"i thought you went for dinner," mom said.
"i dud but i wasn't full." i lied avoiding her eyes.
"That's the problem with these fancy places. they serve useless but expensive food. Check the warmers i left some food for you."she said.
my face brightened up and i went to hug her.
"you are such a darling mummy dearest. but why, i said i would eat out?"
"you are my baby and it doesn't feel right to not leave you any food." she said.
i opened the warmers and found nshima, beef and chibwabwa. i was so excited i didn't even pray and mom just laughed.
"that guy needs to know that you and nshima have a mutual understanding and he shouldn't starve you." mom said with a smile.
"and oh, someone cane looking for you." she said.
"who?" i asked with my mouth full.
"a guy named Richard," she said
i forced the food in my mouth down my throat and i developed a hiccup in the process. my mother was bot looking at me as she has started washing the stove and so she did not see how I was panicking.
"he left his number." she said.
i tried to eat as calmly as possible while I wondered if it was my Richard who had come or the other Richard i had dated to make The Richard jealous.
mom gave me the number and i rushed to my room.
"hey who do you expect to clean this up for you?" mom shouted but i was gone.
i locked my bedroom door and said a little prayer before i dialed Richard's number. it rung for a long tine without an answer and i was about to cut the call when someone picked up. except it was neither of the two Richards, it was a woman..
“Hello,” she answered.
“Hello, I am sorry this must be a wrong number,” i said.
“Maybe not, who do you want to talk to?” she asked me
“Richard,” i said nervously.
“This is his wife speaking, I can take a message.” I said.
“Wife,” I chocked .
so Richard was married? i felt a rush of an emotion that i used to feel whenever i saw Richard help other girls with their school work during our childhood.
“Yes, is there a problem with that?”
“No, I just didn’t know he was married.” I said.
“Well now you do.”
“Alright thanks.” I responded disappointed.
“Who should I say called?” She asked.
I paused for a while before answering not sure of what to say.
“Naomi.” I said and cut the line immediately because tears had welled up in my eyes.
i had lost Richard. but wait, i had Robert so why was i crying?
I concluded Richard and i were star crossed before going to bed though i hardly slept that night because thoughts of whether i would see him again or not haunted me the whole night.
To be continued
