Story: EVE - EPISODE 11



Episode 11

I started at Alberto in fear, anger, pain. His men were standing beside him about six, there was no h ope.going through him. I looked at my back and his men were there too.
I wanted to cry.
“After all I’ve done for you Eve, you still choose to run away from me, with this” He pointed at James who was almost loosing consciousness “This fool”
“Yes, he’s better than you, you treat me badly, you have nothing but hate me Alberto. You hit me, you abuse me both physically and sexually. Hell you almost killed me. And you say you love me. No, Alberto that is hate!”
“Alberto just let the girl go before you finally kill her” James stood up straight despite his pain, he was ready to fight for me.
“Shut up!, the only person who is going to be killed here is you, James. How dare you run away with my wife. How dare you. After all you’ve done to me”
After all you’ve done to me. What was that all about. It was Alberto who did something to James. Not the other way round.
“Eve, come on, come here” Alberto called out to me.
“Never! I’m never coming back to you, Ever!” I shouted. “You would have to kill me before i ever came back to you, you are a monster!”
“I love you Eve, you know that, I’ll never do anything to hurt you”
I laughed..”Can you hear yourself right now Alberto? You’ve always hurt me..There is no day i spend in your house happy. You have done nothing but bring me pain. Four years Alberto, four years i spent with, four years of suffereing, hurt, lonliness, you are nothing but a beast!”
I was angry, pouring out my mind to Alberto. He looked sad for a moment.
“You have to let us go, Alberto” James mutterrred .
“Shut up! This is not your businness.” Alberto grew angry once again.
“Eve, come back now that I’m asking nicely”
“No” I said, holding James. “I’m going with James, I’m going to live with him and even marry him. Because he saved me from you, he is a better man than you, you monster!”
Alberto laughed and pulled out a gun from his pocket and pointed it at James.
I gasped, stepping back. Was Alberto really going to kill James?
“Alberto, are you crazy!” I shouted.
“Yes, darling. I’m crazy for you” He smiled.
James shivered. “Put the gun down Alberto, and lets settle this like a man” He said.
“Settle this like a man? thats what you said when Jane was here, before she killed herself. Its all your fault a-----e”
I looked at James, he didnt say anything. What was going on here?
“I guess he hasnt told you about Jane” Alberto laughed again. “Of course he wont say anything about the evil he has done, He’s not the saviour you see him as Eve. He is a greater demon than i am”
No. No. This was all wrong.
“Yes, he told me. He told me you led Jane to her own destruction. He told me, it was your fault she killed her self. They were going to get married Alberto, but you just had to spoil it all” I said.
Alberto looked shocked for a moment then he laughed. “Wow James, i must really give you an award for twisting stories. lying a-s motherfucker” He laughed again. “Is that what.you told her?”
“Eve, come on, dont listen to him, He is just trying to make you believe him” James said, taking my face in his hand. “Remember we have to escape, thats what matters”
“Dont touch her, a-----e!” Alberto shouted, pointing his gun at James. “Get away from her before i blow your f-----g brains out”
I was confused. I didnt know what to do. A part of me believed Alberto, but what did he mean by James should be given an award for twisting stories?
I looked to my side and saw an exit and just outside the door was a blue car.
“Is that your car?” I whispered to James. He nodded his head, and i smiled.
We can get out of here. We can get my freedom. We just had to be fast.
“Come on, at the count of three, we would run” I said, my voice shaking. Fear.
“Eve, come on. This is your last chance”
“One, two, three, run!” I shouted, running towards the car.
With James following behind me.
“What the f--k?” Alberto shouted behind us. “Get them!” he told his securities.
Then i heard feets runing after us. We were almost there.
I was almost free.
I was almost away from this monster.
I ran faster, like i have ever ran before.
i didnt even look back for fear that Alberto’s men would catch up with me.
“Faster Eve!” James screamed, running beside me.
“Get back here, Eve. You cant run away from me! I’ll get you!”
Never. I stared at the car as i continued running. Just a few more steps. Just a few more seconds and i would be free.
Then Alberto fired some shots. I quickly looked to me side, at James, he was ok.
Alberto shot at us. But none had touched us, as we opened the door and to the car.
“Get in!” James shouted.
I quickly looked at Alberto, he was about to shoot James.
“Hurry!” I shouted as James quickly opened the car and got in. I got in through the passenger door .
Alberto was pissed. He looked murderous. He was really going to kill James.
“Lets go!” I shouted, but James seemed to be looking for something.
“I think i dropped the keys while trying to open th e door”
Oh No.
Alberto was almost close to us.
I stared to cry. I was dead. Alberto was going to get us. I was going to die. He was going to kill me.
“I found it!” James said , showing me the keys.
“Stop showing me the keys and lets get the hell outta here!”
Alberto came out of the hospital with his men behind him just as we started moving.
In a few seconds, the car was up and running and i looked back.
Alberto was staring at us.
He looked hurt.
He looked angry.
He looked pained.
I looked at him.
I looked at Alberto with Sadness.
Why was i suddenly feeling like this?
I was suppossed to be happy. Pleased. Jumpimg for joy because i finally got away from the monster.
I looked at Alberto once again, and i broke down in tears.
He looked so broken. He looked shattered. I looked at him once last time.
He was a very handsome man.
I suddenly remembered when he bought me that gown i wore to the ball.
I remembered when i saw him bringing those beautiful flowers for me to the hospital.
I remembered when i woke up and he was there holding my hand, waiting for me to wake up.
I remembered when he bought me my first cat, a beautiful grey cat, which died shortly after.
I stared at the man who had done good things for me too
Alberto hadnt brought me only pain.
He had also brought me joy, happiness.
He had also made me smile.
He cared for me.
He showed affection to me.
He loved me.
Alberto wasnt total monster.
He wasnt a total beast.
He had a heart.
He had a soft spot.
Even a beast still know how to show a little amount of care.
I continued staring at him, trying to memorise his face. Because i knew i wasnt going to see him again.
I stared at Alberto, we stared at each other.
Until we made a turn and i didnt see him again.
What had i done? I asked myself.
But it was too late.

To be continued
