Chapter 46. The Truth
"What the fuck is this shit?" Alando shouted startling both Eyan and I. "Is this what y'all do on a regular?"
Eyan stood there shocked with his penis in his hands
"Pull your fucking pants up you dweeb" Alando barked at him.
I moved to hang up the phone but Alando grabbed my hand.
"Don't even think about hanging up, I want to know what's going on between you two and I wanna know now!
"We're still fucking" I heard Eyan say and I almost pass out from horror.
When he heard that, Alando was so livid that he threw my phone into the wall shelling it into bits and pieces. He then came after after me and I acted quickly, running into the bathroom and shutting the door behind me.
"Open the door Nicole or I swear to God I'm gonna kick it down" he said as he fiddled with the lock
"Alando, baby, he's lying, you have to believe me" I shouted from behind the door.
"Open the door damn it" he yelled.
"If I do you have to promise that you wont hurt me" I begged.
He went quiet and I wondered if he had left. I began panicking at the thought of him leaving me alone again in this same hotel. I struggled with a decision, should I open the door and face his wrath or stay in the bathroom and risk him leaving. My decision stared me in the face and I knew what I had to do. I took a deep breath and opened the door because I rather facing whatever judgement he had in store than being without him.
He stood on the balcony with his arms folded staring out at the night's view of the city. His jaw was tense and his green eyes dark with anger and frustration.
I went infront of him, putting my arms around his waist and stared into his eyes.
"Are you fucking him?" He asked, I was surprised at how calm his voice was.
"Babe.... please don't....."
And before I could finish my sentence his hand was at my throat lifting me from the ground. I panicked as all I could think about was that he was going to throw me over the balcony.
"I'm gonna ask you one last time, Are you fucking him?"
He loosened his hold just enough for me to respond.
"No Alando, I'm not fucking him, if you only knew how much I hate that piece of shit then we wouldnt even be having this conversation" I replied.
He relaxed a bit and released me.
"You are fucking insane you know that?" I asked while rubbing my neck and I hurriedly moved away from the railing.
"Yes I know and now you do too" he replied.
I rolled my eyes and went back inside to pour myself some juice to soothe my throat. He came in behind me and stood looking at what was once my perfectly working phone.
"Tomorrow I'll get you a new one and a new number" he said quietly.
I nodded in agreement as I was still nervous from him grabbing my throat. This was the Alando that scared the crap out of me, the side I knew that wasn't to be messed with. It was obvious that he was crazy as hell, there was no way a normal person remained this calm while being furious.
He went into the bathroom then I heard the shower running. Within minutes he was out and getting dressed and I knew he was leaving.
"Please don't leave" I told him quietly.
"I need to think" he said
"Think about what?" I asked and by this my voice was heavy with panic.
I wondered if he was having second thoughts about us or if he regretted what happened earlier. We were having such a great time until that shit house of a human being decided to call my phone with his retarded looking dick in his hand. I had to do something, I couldn't let him leave me here again.
I got up and started getting dressed.
"Where are you going?" He asked
"With you!" I replied.
"I don't think so, I need to be away from you for awhile" his response was full of bile and hatred.
What the hell did he mean by he needs to be away from me, was he breaking up with me?
He took up his bag and began walking towards the door and I felt like I was losing a part of me, I was losing him. My knees became weak and I instantly became nauseous. He was leaving and I had to stop him, it was now or never.
"Alando I love you!"
I stood there and wondered if I was being honest. Was this the truth or was it apart of a desperate ploy to let him stay with me tonight and not leave. At the moment I wasn't sure.
When the words came out, I didn't try to hide the tears that accompanied them. He spun around and stared at me.
"I love you so much, please don't leave" I repeated "Eyan and I are not together, he cheated and then told me he wanted to see other people, It took me so long to get over him, I never knew I was capable of loving someone else, but here I am loving you. I do love you Alando King, with everything"
I attempted to go to him but hesitated as his eyes were still dark with anger.
"I didn't even realise how much I loved you until I saw that you were about to leave, I felt as if my life was going through the door" I told him and just the memory of it was enough to bring back the nausea. I couldn't hold back as this episode was coming in full flight. I ran to the bathroom and vomited.
He was at my side in an instant, rubbing my back telling me to relax and breathe. The touch of his hand on my skin sent shivers down my spine. I placed my head in his chest and cried like the big baby that I am.
"I'm here, I'm not going anywhere " he whispered in my hair.
His scent eased my stomach and his voice calmed my aching heart.
"How is it so easy for you to walk away?" I asked him as I sniffed his shirt.
He sighed and stroked my hair.
"I've learned that it's best to walk away before I let my emotions make me do something I'll regret"
I looked up at him, the hurt was evident in his eyes.
"I would never cheat on you Alando" I said softly.
He didn't respond instead, he looked away so I knew he was still mad about what happened earlier.
I got up, brushed my teeth and returned to the bathroom floor where he was.
"I'm sorry for grabbing your throat" he said as he kissed my neck
"It's okay" I replied.
"No Nicole, it's not okay, you're the mother of my child, my wife to be, I cant be assaulting you like that"
"We will work on it together, how about anger management?" I asked.
"Been there, done that" he replied.
"We'll figure something out" I reassured him.
As we sat there, I told him everything about Eyan and I, so he could understand and know why I hated him so much and that there was no chance in hell that we would ever be intimate again. His mood improved and we went back to the bedroom where we cuddled and slept peacefully.
