[STORY] CASSANDRA โ€“ Episode 42

by bottlez

โ€˜โ€™so what do you think about the two ๐Ÿ‘ฏ ladies?โ€™โ€™ I suddenly asked mum as we headed to my house minutes after the touching scene with Nora. She shrugged and breathed deeply.
โ€˜โ€™I like Nora very much and you are going to do the right thing with her. As for Cassandra, I really donโ€™t know but she also acts like a nice girl. However your sister isnโ€™t saying the same about her and you know she knows her much better โ€˜โ€™โ€™ she answered.
โ€˜โ€™I told Cassandra about Nora earlier today. She didnโ€™t break up with me instead understood all I said to her. I really see that girl as a level headed person. Moreover she is very educated and beautiful โ˜บ๏ธ. She will soon be a doctor ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธ and you will be her proud mother in law โ€™โ€™ I said with a smile, forcing my mum to smile as well. Yes I believed Cassandraโ€™s education was the only thing probably gaining my motherโ€™s respect but then her new found motherly friendship with Nora was something I was intelligent enough not to overlook. At the end I knew I was the one to make the final decision but then in Africa we all know that family support or a motherโ€™s support is very essential in a relationship.

โ€˜โ€™mum you know I couldnโ€™t finish my education because of financial ๐Ÿ’ฐreasons. You also know that Iโ€™m ambitious and a good business man. Marrying a doctor will be good for the family and also good for business. I need your supportโ€™โ€™ I appealed softly.
โ€˜โ€™supposing Cassandra isnโ€™t educated, would you have noticed her?โ€™โ€™ mum suddenly asked, surprising me with the question ๐Ÿค”.
โ€˜โ€™I really donโ€™t thing you love that girl, because just like you said, you are simply blinded ๐Ÿ˜Ž by what she is going to become in future and how good she will be for businessโ€™โ€™ she added annoyingly.
โ€˜โ€™come on mum, donโ€™t be like that. I love ๐Ÿ˜ Cassandra. I know what I feel for her is strong to be called loveโ€™โ€™ I defended quickly.
โ€˜โ€™how about Nora, what do you feel for her?โ€™โ€™โ€™ she slowly asked, giving me a quick look. I breathed deeply, keeping quiet for some seconds.
โ€˜โ€™I really canโ€™t answer that easily. I feel many things for Nora. I feel sympathy, respect and admiration but I donโ€™t think I have enough love for her. No I donโ€™tโ€™โ€™ I breathed slowly. My mother shrugged, saying nothing more.
My head really was filled with many thoughts as we silently made the rest of the journey back to my house. I couldnโ€™t help but wonder what mumโ€™s plans were. I couldnโ€™t help but imagine what she could be thinking ๐Ÿค”.

On getting to the gate, I stopped my car ๐Ÿš™, alighted and tried to open the gate. A man instantly appeared from nowhere, taking me by surprise as he grabbed me from behind. My heart instantly stopped with fear.
โ€˜โ€™where is my Cassandra? Where did you keep her? Talk to me or I will slit your throatโ€™โ€™ the young man threatened loudly as he softly pierced my neck with the tip of a small knife ๐Ÿ”ช. I instantly knew the fool trying to scare me was no other person than Edwin. I desperately struggled to free myself while my mother jumped out of the car.
โ€˜โ€™you are taking this too far. Let go of me Edwinโ€™โ€™ I barked, struggling with him.
โ€˜โ€™who is that old woman ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿผ? Is she coming to fight me or what? I guess you have lots of loved ones and yes I will destroy them one by one before killing you. Cassandra is my wife, let her beโ€™โ€™ he threatened, threw me forward towards my mother, and faced us with a defiant posture.


The neighborhood was very dark and less busy. The noise also coming from hundreds of generators inside the surrounding buildings greatly added to the noisy evening.
โ€˜โ€™my son are you alright? who is he and what did he say to you?โ€™โ€™ my mother asked breathlessly while I stared back at her unable to say a word because I was deeply shaken.
There wasnโ€™t any doubt that Edwin could kill me and destroy my family.
โ€˜โ€™ahhhh I see she is your mother. Hmmmmmmโ€™โ€™ Edwin quickly chuckled while I stared suspiciously ๐Ÿ‘€ at him, wondering what his next move would be.
The guy was really, really sick in the head ๐Ÿค•.
