[Story] Falling For Innocence – Episode 5
“Why do you keep falling for me, lady” i ask
“that’s because you keep making me trip!” She yell at me while trying to get free of my grasp. Too bad i like the feel of her on me.
“Yea, i make a lot of girls trip” i say and let out a belly laugh which make me lose my hold on her. She gets free but instead of running off, she turns to yell at me.
“You are are-arggggggh!” Her words turn into a scream as soon as she looks down . Why don’t i help her finish her statement.
“d-k?” i ask and she whip her head up. I see her face turn impossibly red. Black girls blush?
“Wh-at?” she stutter
“no. Jeez.” She mumble as she shake her head probably trying to get the image off her head. I roll my eyes at her. Her eyes are now looking above my head.
“You act as if you haven’t seen a d**k before” i say
“well, i haven’t” what? That’s impossible. How old is this girl?
“listen, you must be the daughter of Mr agofure. Am margaret’s son.” I say and stretch my hand for a handshake.
“Margaret’s son. So you are the step brother i was told am gonna be getting?” she ask
“Yea, the one and only” i say and grin.
I just saw my brother naked. Let me go and die now” she says and before i can blink, she disappears into her room and slam the door.
“Great. You scared her” i say to no one in particular. I pick my towel off the floor and walk into the bathroom to wash the day’s events off
my body. After my bath, i close myself up in my room and unpack the little stuff i brought because I am not staying for long. As soon as the party is done tomorrow, am out of here. This house reminds me of peter. We used to come here during the holidays when our dad was still
with us, so living here is nothing but suffocating.
Also, I cant risk meeting Hannah. I don’t think i can take it. Sometimes i don’t even know if am still inlove with her or if i hate her. What a f**ked up life. My stomach growl and i remember that i haven’t eaten today. Its about 6pm so i should just find an eatery to eat in tonight. Maybe i can take my sis with me. I laugh at the thought of Sarah being my sis because what i feel for her is not brotherly love at all. Its certainly not love either.
Lust maybe but not love. I quickly throw on a t-shirt and grab my wallet before i head to the room Sarah ran into. I knock twice and when i
don’t get an answer i call her name.
“Sarah? Are you in there?” I ask
“go away, please” i hear her say and i smile.
“Come on. I am going out for dinner so i just called to ask you to go with me. You are probably hungry too.”
“Am not hungry, so bye”
“hey Sarah. I cant eat alone so would you please come with me? Do this for your brother. I promise not to show you anything scary again” i say
while trying to hold my laugh back.
“You are teasing me aren’t you?” she asks
“look Sarah, this place holds bad memories for me and i don’t want to be alone okay? So please” i say sincerely. Gosh, why did i tell her that? If she doesn’t want to go then what’s the big deal? I ask myself but i Cant come up with any reasonable answers. Well, f**k this. If she doesn’t want to go i won’t beg anymore.
“Forget it Sarah” i say and walk away. She doesn’t even call me back. Ouch.
I couldn’t bring my car because i came by air so i have to go into mom’s garage to find a mode of transport. I don’t find a car in there but i find something better. A motorbike. Sweet!. I remember how happy peter and i were when our dad brought this home. We had even argued
about what to call it before we settled on butterfly.
I push it out to the front of the house then look for the keys in the garage.
“Jake?” I turn back to see Sarah peeping into the garage.
“Is your offer to join you still on? I just realised that am hungry afterall” she says and i nod at her.
“Found it!” i yell excitedly as soon as i find the keys. I quickly lock the garage door and walk Sarah out to the motorbike.
“Please tell me we are not going on that” Sarah says as soon as she sees it.
“Isn’t it magnificent?.” i ask
“its a death trap. That’s what it is” she says and start retreating back.
“Sarah don’t worry, butterfly and i would keep you safe”
“butterfly? You named your bike such a girly name?” she ask giggling.
“my brother named it actually”
“you have a brother?”
“oh am so sorry” she says and squeeze my shoulder.
“Its fine. wait here” i say and run into the house. I grab an helmet from my room and run back downstairs.
“This should assure you” i say and encase her head in the helmet. She goes to say something but i shut the visor. I straddle the bike and motion for her to hop in. She hesitate for a second before she climb on awkwardly. I rev the engine and this brings bittersweet memories.
“ready to go fast?” I ask and i turn to see her shake her head.
“Hold on to me” i yell over the noise of the bike as i speed off unto the dark road. I hear Sarah squeal loudly before she wrap her hands around my waist. Tight. Why does this feel so right?. Don’t forget that she is your sister A-hole.
“That was amazing. Would you let me drive us home?” Sarah ask as soon as we alight at an eatery at the outskirts of town and she takes her
helmet off making her head look all wild and sexy. How can a hair look sexy Jake? My inner voice ask me and i give him the imaginary middle
“Absolutely not. You are not riding my butterfly” i tell her and i watch a kissable lips pout. I almost relent. Almost.
“Do you want to kill us both?” i ask. She ponder on this a bit before she shake her head.
“Will you teach me then?” she ask and give me puppy dog eyes. That is not going to affect me. It won’t.
“Okay, sure” i hear myself say. What?! I wouldn’t even be here after tomorrow.
“yay. Thank you. Thank you.” Sarah says then jump on me excitedly. I catch her petite frame and she hug me. This is just an innocent hug so
does my heart feel like its going to burst with gidiness? Jeez, get it together Jake she is your sister. You cant bone your sister. But we
are not even related so its not Wrong right?. I quickly pull out of the hug while laughing awkwardly. My laugh freeze on my lips when i
hear a familiar voice call my name. Oh no
