I released myself from my mom’s hug and walked inside, Dad sat on his couch reading a magazine. He saw me and cleared his throat but I ignored him and with a heavy heart and floody face, I ran upstairs then sat on my bed crossed legs. I killed him emotionally, I broke his heart and said a lot hurtful words to him. Gosh Rayna good way to Go. “You had to tell him Rayna, you had no choice” My subconscious told me. But still I shouldn’t have called him poor, or hurt his pride, I thought back to my subconscious. “Rayna you had no choice, we both know Daxton very well, if you had gone easy with him, he would have fought for you and he would risk his life, you had no choice but to insult him” my subconscious said back to me. I screamed out my frustration and everyone came running inside except from my Dad.
“Rayna darling what is it” Mom asked. The shocked faces on sophia, other maids and few bodyguards proved I screamed so loudly. “Get out all of you GET OUT” I yelled pointing at the door. Everyone walked out except mom. “Mom please leave” I said and she walked outside her head facing down.
I was a goner, I wasn’t the same Rayna anymore, this Rayna was broken. I laid down on my bed and I tried closing it but I couldn’t. I needed to sleep since that was the only way to escape from reality.
“Hey baby” I heard his masculine voice say and I sprung up immediately to look at where the direction of thevoicewas coming from. “Daxton” I said excitedly as I walked to him and tried hugging him but I ended up hugging the air. Tears streamed down my face, my heart was heavy, I missed him so much. How he made me feel, his touch, his voice and even his smiles. “You need to rest” He said again, I turned back to see Daxton at the edge of the bed pointing at it. Even though I was just imagining or perhaps hallucinating it, it felt like Daxton was here and that alone warmed my heart. I did exactly what he asked me to do, I walked to the bed and laid on it. Daxton also laid on the bed with me, I looked at him smiling and before I knew it, sleep knockedin.

I slammed the cup on the table and gulped loudly. “One more bottle” I yelled at the barman. He walked to me and gave me an annoying look but I was too drunk to react. “Sir this is your 7th bottle, and you’ve paid for none, am sorry we can’t sell you more drinks until you pay for the ones you bought” He said. Now that hit the spot, I stood up sluggishly and held him by the collar. “Are you saying am poor, is that why you won’t sell any drinks for me, she left me because am poor and you’ll also not sell any drinks to me, is that it” I yanked at him holding his collar while he tried breaking loose from my grip. “Please sir let me go” He begged but I didn’t listen until some group of men came and pulled me away from him. The man coughed and took a deep breath. “Please tell tell him to pay his debt” He said, his hands adjusting his collar. I dipped my hands in my pocket and realized it was empty. “The bastard has no money, we’ll beat it out of him” One of the guys said and they all nodded, before I knew it they all started attacking me but I didn’t fight back, the only thing that was on my head was. “YOU ARE POOR, I DON’TDATE POOR GUYS” Those words hurt me so badly and this minor beatings were nothing compared to it. You could recover from the beatings but not from the broken heart Rayna gave me. “Stop, stop it all of you” I heard my younger sister’s voice yell. She pushed her away to reach me and she looked at me sad and disappointed. “Tell him to pay the money” One of them said. Debbie payed my debt again, apologized and pulled meout.
I sat on the couch and Debbie ran to her room to bring the first aid box…
She applied some treatment on my face and walked away but I pulled her back. “I’ll pay all your debts Debbie, I promise you I will” I said but she angrily shoved my hands away. “You’ve been telling me these for a very long time but you just keep on putting me in more debts, as long as Rayna is the only one you are thinking about you can never be successful, speaking of the badluck, she asked me to return this to you” Debbie said and threw a bracelet at me. It was the same bracelet I gave Rayna, it stood as the unbreakable bond between both of us. But Rayna did not only break the bond, she broke us and mostly she broke me and I can never forget that nor will I be able to forgive.
“Of course I would be able to pay your debt sister, because the one holding me back is finally dead to me” I said and stood up and entered my room.
Am sorry brother, am sorry that you can’t be with her but you two can never work no matter what. It’s a good thing Mr Skylar gave me the bracelet and asked me to lie that it was Rayna that gave me the bracelet. You’ve finally come to your senses
I woke up the next morning feeling nauseous and I rushed to the toilet to dispose of whatever was left in my empty stomach. To think I didn’t eat anything since yesterday. I washed up and touch my stomach, yes that’s right, a life was growing inside me. A life that Daxton may never be part of. This thought made me break down in tears and I sat on the toilet seat feeling weak again. I heard my door open and mom’s voice followed. “Rayna, I brought breakfast” She said. “Am not hungry” I said silently but she heard it anyways. She entered the toilet and shooked her head. “Cmon up you go” She said and pulled me up, I felt so light and that made it easier for her to pull me up then to my room. “Cmon open up, dearie you need to eat something” Mom said putting the spoon in front of my mouth but I refused to open my mouth. Mom sighed then smiled. “At least for the sake of your baby” She said and that was enough to persuade me to open my mouth. I realized my bracelet wasn’t with me anymore and I got scared. “Mom my bracelet, have you seen it” I asked looking around. “Your father has returned it back to him” Mom replied.

A WEEK LATER
Debbie released herself from the long hug she gave me and wiped her tears. “Am going to miss you big brother, am going to miss you so much” She said. I pulled her in for another hug and assured her I’ll be back soon. I needed to leave, Ineeded to think about my life and also move on especially from Rayna, she is nothing to me now. She got married today and she seemed happy without me, I can also be happy without her.
I sat on the bed miserably crying, I got married today to a man I didn’t even know anything about. He crawled up to me and attempted to touch me but I pushed his hands away swiftly and moved away from him. “Hey its okay, I won’t force you, it’s normal if you don’t want to do it now” He said. I looked at him irritated, the
bastard knew I was pregnant for another man but he still chose to go on with the wedding because of the stupid deal he had with my greedy father. The bastard even wants to sleep with me, the thought of it made me irritated. “Brian please can you leave, I need to sleep” I said not looking at him. “We are married now my dear Rayna, we are not meant to be sleeping separately” He said. “If you can’t excuse me, then I’ll leave” I said and stood up. “No its okay, you can have the bed to yourself” He said and walked out not before looking at me lustfully. The nerves of the bastard.
Daxton I miss you badly and am dieing here.
7 MONTHS LATER.
My yells and painful screams filled the hospital ward. Yes I was having a hard time giving birth and it was killing me. “Mrs Gates you can do this, just take a breath and push ” The doctor said standing in front of my open legs. Hearing her call me Gates was so annoying, he was the reason why I was here. I was having this baby prematurely, am supposed to be due in one more months but the bastard had pushed me so violently that I was even scared I was going to lose my child. I guess the force made the child come out sooner…
I cried and screamed grabbing the sheets so tightly and bringing my head up and down. Daxton wasn’t here, I needed him more than ever. Just his face and 30% of the pain I was going through would vanish. “Aaaarh” I screamed and continued pushing.
“DAXTON!!!!!” I yelled and the cries of a baby, my baby, Daxton’s child filled the ward.
Why is my heart beating faster today, why do I feel like Rayna is calling out to me. No no no Daxton, she doesn’t needs you remember, so just forget about her. No I won’t forget about her, am coming back to make her pay.
