Life sucks – Suck it up… Episode 12

Life sucks – suck it up
Chapter 12
By Jennifer Owens
Rebecca’s POV
This is the second day Damon threw me out of his life and he hasn’t called nor visit.
I got down from my bed and freshened up.
I dressed up, took my bag and headed to work.
He might have thrown me out of his life but he didn’t throw me out of his restaurant right?
I reached my work, changed into my working clothes and started my work.
“table 4, high class ” my Co worker said.
“serve it I’m tired ” I seethed.
“I can’t, I don’t wanna loose my job”
“what are you talking about ”
“it’s sir Damon James king that’s at that table ”
“what ” I almost yelled.
“yeah, I’m afraid I’ll make a mistake and he’ll fire me but you seem to be perfect in everything ” she said.
I breathe in and out then sighed softly.
I took my jotter and pen and went to table 4 with a pounding heart.
“good day sir ” I said softly and bowed.
There was an awkward silence between us for some minutes until I spoke up.
“your order sir ” I said swallowing hard.
“lasagna and salad ” he said, his eyes not leaving mine.
I bowed and went to get it.
I came back some secs later and served him.
I serve some few more customers until it was time for me to leave.
“I’m out ” I yelled as I walked out of the resto.
I got home, freshened up and sat in my bed thinking about my life.
I heard my door bell ring and I got up to open the door and was shocked when Damon wrapped his arms around me tightly.
My eyes widened and I stiffened on my spot.
“I’m sorry ” he sobbed quietly still holding me.
I wrapped my arms around him too and buried my head on his chest.
“for what ” I said softly.
“for hurting you ”
“it’s okay” I said and we disengaged from the hug.
I stepped aside and he came in.
We sat in the bed looking at each other.
“I’m sorry I didn’t give you the chance to explain ” he said and I nodded.
“I don’t know but this two days that you left, I’m not myself, I couldn’t concentrate on anything and I miss you so much” he said and a tear slid down his cheek.
I moved closer to him and wiped it away with my thumb.
“you know back in the days when I was still young, my dad was not so loving, he always beat up my mom and I, he treated us like we were nothing so one day I got fed up, he was beating my mom non stop, I tried stopping him but he pushed me away making my head to hit the floor, I slighted a vase on the table, I picked it up and hit him on the head and he landed on the floor wincing in pain and then he stopped breathing ” I said while he just sat there looking at me with guilt.
“I never regretted killing that monster and I don’t regret it ” I said as a tear slid down my cheek then another tear slid down again then more and more.
He held me and made my head rest on his chest.
“it’s okay Becca, you don’t have to feel guilty, I’m the one who should be, I never understood you and I’m sorry ” he cooed.
“I was taken to juvenile and I spent 4 years of my life there, when I came out, I heard the saddest news of my life, my mom is dead ” I said amidst tears.
“I couldn’t find it in me to live but I had to suck life up so I ended up being a stripper so I could survive ”
“I came to New York to continue my stripping job but then I met a guy and fell in love with him, he used me, got me pregnant and abandoned me, I wanted to kill myself cos the pain in my heart was unbearable but I still sucked it up and I dumped my baby at the orphanage, I regret that cuz I need my child back in my life ” I cried
“ssh it’s okay, we are gonna find your child together ” he cooed.
I felt so relaxed in his arms.
Damon’s POV
She finally fell asleep in my arms.
I laid her gently in the bed and watched as she slept peacefully.
I thought I was gonna loose her.
Those two days that she wasn’t in my life was like hell for me.
No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get her out of my head, I couldn’t concentrate on anything.
I knew I was wrong when I told her to get out of my life and I regret it.
I never meant to hurt her.
I went to the restaurant just to see her and when I did, I wanted to hug her, kiss her but I couldn’t.
I couldn’t bear not being with her, I couldn’t bear seeing her in pain and I can’t live without her so I came to her house to settle everything.
I never knew her life was such a mess, if by any means I get to know that douche bag that made her life miserable, I swear I won’t spare him.
I’m so happy now that I have her back.
I laid beside her and slept off too.
I woke up to a soft touch on my cheek.
I opened my eyes slowly to see my angel.
“hey how are you now ” I asked and sat up.
“I’m good ” she said smiling.
“um thanks for coming back and letting me explain ” she said.
“no, I should be the one thanking you for giving me the honor to hear your explanation ” I said and she giggled softly
We looked at each other for a while until I embraced her.
“will you be my girlfriend ” I whispered into her ear.
She disengaged from the hug and looked me straight in the eyes before nodding positively.
“yes ” she said smiling.
“thanks ” I whispered.
I wrapped my arms around her and held her tight.
I’m never letting her go again.
