Story: EVE - EPISODE 20



Episode 20

*Alberto’s point of view*

I kept staring at the diary, it belonged to a girl called Eve.
Who was she?
I opened another page and it read,
August, 27, 2016.
Dear Diary,
Today me and Alberto went to the beach. We played a game that if i caught him while running he would be my slave. Guess what? I won, i tricked him and he bought me a lot of things but that wasnt the best part.
We kissed.
I kissed Alberto. And it was the best moment of my life. When his lips touched mine, i went to clo ud nine. I was in a land i never wanted to leave. Then he told me he loved me. I believed. That day, was when i started loving Alberto. But i would never tell him. He treats me like a slave. Alberto must never know i love him.
Now i need to sleep before Albert comes to my room and see me writing.
Let me look at the picture once more.
The only picture i have of me and Alberto.
Good night Diary, Till tomorrow.
I sighed. This Eve loved me?
But why didnt she tell me?
Was i too much of a monster that she didnt want me to know?
Who was this girl that said i loved her?
She mentioned a picture she had of me and her.
At least i would know what she looked like.
I flipped the pages of the diary to find the picture but it wasnt there.
I stood up too fast and my ribs stung in pain. Groaning, i opened the drawers and started searching for the picture. It wasnt there.
I opened the drawers, wardrobe but it wasnt there either. I sighed in fustration.
Where could this picture be?
Then i raised up the pillow and there a piece of paper there.
Two faces stared at me. One was me and the other was a girl. She had hazel eyes a beautiful smile. She was the most beautiful creature i had ever seen. That smile. Lips. Cheekbones. Eyes. I fell in love with them as i admired.
In the picture, i was looking at her. I recognised the look of love in my eyes, I knew from the way i was looking at her that she had already won my heart.
Who was this Eve?
Why didnt i remember this girl, i seemed to look at so lovingly?
I stood up fustrated, angry, pissed. Questions fille d my mind.
I didnt know anything anymore.
I didnt know this girl in this picture.
Yet those eyes and that smile haunted me.
Why did she say i treat her bad?
Was i a kind of a monster towards her?
Did she really love me?
How did i even get into that accident?
Why was i drinking?
What happened to this girl, Eve?
Why isnt she here?
Did she leave? Did i push her away?
Or was she taken away from me?
I screamed as my head started to hurt. The pain was so intense i fell, hitting my head against the floor.
The pain grew and i could feel my vision turning black. I was loosing my sight. I couldnt see. Ever ywhere was dark.
I couldnt hear, Silence filled my ears and darkness filled my eyes.
I suddenly couldnt move. I layed on the floor, not moving. I was frozen, blind and deaf.
The only part of me working was my mind, i felt worried what was happening to me?
Then it came crashing down.
Memories, events, people started filling my mind.
First, i was in a house asking for my money, saw a beautiful young girl. Took her with me. She stay ed with me. I fell in love with her. I treated her badly,
I turned to a monster, punishing her for any little mistske. Giving her scars, making her cry, leaving her alone.
Then taking her out, there she was dancing with the enemy. I was angry, i beat him up and dragged her away, speeding off into the woods. Angry and shouts at her. Throwing her into the river.
Watching her drown, feeling for her, fears of loosing her, angry with myself. Rushes in to save her, takes her to the hospital. Confessing my love and apologising to her. She is sad, broken and scared . I was sent out to allow her rest.
But when i came back, she was gone..She was not there anymore. I was sad, broken, torn, fear consumed me. I wanted her back. Then i heard the enemy was in the same hospital.
Anger filled me and i knew i had to get her back. Even if it meant killing him. But it was too late, they finally left. I knew she was happy to be finally free from someone as evil as me. I was angry, shattered, torn, broken beyond limit.
My heart crashed, it broke to a million pieces. She left me. She left me for him, for that demon. She left me. She never loved me. Because if she dids he would have stayed.
But it wasnt her fault, i was a monster. I did nothing but bring her pain. I kept her locked up with me for fear of loosing her. I trapped the angel beca use i didnt want to share her with anyone else.
I clipped off her wings, i broke her. I couldnt love her properly because i always grew jealous and angry. My emotions always got the best of me. I locked her here so she could be with me forever.
Forgive me if i was selfish.
But she meant a lot to me, but everytime i tried to show her, my anger, pride, jealousy, consumed me.
I was the beast who fell in love with an angel.
Then with all that pain, i went to the bar. I drank till i could not talk. Then than blonde girl came up to me. I followed her like a fool because i needed to get my mind away from the angel.
But i couldnt, i kept seeing her face, hearing her laugh. seeing her smile and those beautiful eyes.
I couldnt take it anymore, i ran out. I ran away like the coward i was. Running away from my heart with all the heavy pain. I entered my car. Her beautiful face still burning at the back of my mind.
Her smile lingered in my brain.
Her eyes tormented me.
Her lips spoke to me, begging them to be kissed.
Still thinking about her, i didnt notice the car coming in front of me. The last thing i remembered was the crash.
Then i woke up in the hospital. All my memory of her gone.
Now here was i. The memory had returned. I kne w her.
She was my all.
She was the girl i had fallen in love with when all my hope was gone.
She was the girl who captured my heart, sealed it and held unto the key.
She was my soul.
She was my heart.
She was my mind.
She was mine.
And i was hers.
I needed her to survive.
I was lost without her.
I knew who she was. The darkness, the void, the space had been filled up with memories of her and questions in me had been answered.
That angel was Eve Santiago, my wife.
But she was with the devil and there was only one thing i needed to do.
Bring her back to me.
I was going to save her.

I was going to save my wife, my angel, my queen.
