A Story Written by Diamondwriter….
The room was overflowed with smoke which
appeared like clouds just beneath the ceiling.
Linda traced the supply of smoke to two barely
dressed girls with their hands all over Jack!
Linda froze the moment she recognized the
flirty eyes of Jack. Sailor stared from her to an
unpertubed Jack and back to her.
‘is everything okay?’ he asked but got no
‘what are you doing here?’ Linda directed her
question at Jack with a scowl on her face.
‘i could ask you the same thing baby’ he
answered in a playful manner.
‘i thought you were at the reception?’ she
glared at one of the girls in disguist as smoke
puffed out of her mouth inches away from
‘i left’ he paused. ‘really why are you here?’ his
tone translated to concern.
She searched for an answer other than the
actual reason for her being there. She found
‘am here for the party obviously’ she tried to
sound carefree as possible.
Jack noticed as her eyes grew cloudy.
He gently shovd the ladies beside him,away and
stood to walk towards Linda until sailor stopped
‘you have had your fun man,you are killing
mine’ sailor’s arm formed a wall between Linda
‘she’s my brother’s wife sai. You can get
yourself another fun.’ Jack’s unseriousness was
totally gone. He looked over at Linda and
suspended his index finger at her ‘as for me
and you missy,we are out of here.’ he pushed at
sailors arm expecting an easy pass but was
‘you can go if you want jack. The lady stays’
Sailor voiced firmly.
‘you are kidding’ he looked over to Linda. ‘come
she ignored him. ‘Linda?’ he called again ‘aren’t
Her mouth remained sealed but she nodded no.
‘you heard the lady,now getout!’ sailor ordered.
‘and take the girls with you’ he laughed
Both wierd girls trotted out of the room followed
by Jack who move with his eyes fixed on Linda
until sailor slammed the door
‘so baby,let’s get this party started’ sailor stated
Linda battled with the fraction of guilt within
her as she wondered where Jack where was. If
he even had a room to stayed. The guilt
pounded heavy on her cranium until she
reminded herself of how he led her on and
She looked over at sailor. He was in an excited
state but he didn’t appeal to her one bit. She
envisage what could happen between them but
stopped herself halfway. She wasn’t sure if he
was the right vessel to use in repaying Tom in
his own currency.
‘so this is the party?’ she said sarcastically. She
viewed him from his head to his toe. He was so
skinny and unkempt. She noticed for the first
time,his rough eyes and his chocolate glued
teeth. He just got uglier by the minute so she
‘yes,this is how i party darling’ he smiled and
took a step forward. ‘or do you prefer a more
fancy party? It could be arranged.’
‘noo…’ she said still looking away. ‘i just thought
it was something louder. I guess another party
is going on around here somewhere’
‘yeah’ his smile faded. ‘so can w-‘
‘how do you know Jack?’ she interrupted.
‘i met him abroad’ he announced hastily.
‘i see,did you do your masters over there too?’
‘yes’ he answered with a scowl on his face. His
patience was running out.
’em… So-‘ she was about to cook up another
question until he cut in.
‘missy’ he smiled dirtyly ‘as much as i would
love to chat with you,i would love to do
something more enjoyable with you’ he move
closer to her. She was within his reach.
‘am sorry sailor i appreciate your kind gesture
really but it was a mistake coming here. Thanks
for the invite’.
She turned to move but he grabbed her by the
shoulders and pulled her back.
‘you are not going anywhere’ his eyes blazed
dangerously. He was obviously high. He pulled
her towards his chest,ignoring her scream for
She caught a glimpse of his eyes. It was evil
and she knew he wouldn’t let her go. She tried
to scream harder but felt his palm upon her
mouth. She lost hope. He was going to violate
Then in the twinkle of an eye the door burst
Jack rushed straight at sailor and separated him
from linda with a heavy blow.
‘are you alright?’ he asked a very shakened
linda. She nodded yes.
He turned face sailor who had managed to get
back to his feet and dealth him some blows
with both hands continuously until Linda
‘please,stop it Jack’ she cried as sailor’s eyes
had been hidden by the red colour of his blood.
Jack glared at sailor on the ground and spat on
him. He turned towards Linda,pulling her close
to him the walked out of the room.
An uncomfortable silence filled the room while
both Linda and Jack stared at their toes.
She couldn’t stop to thank him in her mind but
her lips couldn’t say the word. Each time she
tried to bring herself to say it,she remembered
his irksome actions.
‘Linda?’ he called in soft tone ‘Linda look at me’
she remained fixed in her position unsure of
what to do.
He placed his hands on her shoulder mildly and
turned her half way towards him.
‘why are you here? What did my brother do?’ he
She raised her head and her eyes completely
fell in his gaze. She searched them for the
answers but she couldn’t find any. She
suspected he must have know about Tom and
the lady but she couldn’t be sure.
‘i caught him with a lady’ She responded and
relaxed when she saw the shock on Tom’s face.
‘Tell me you are joking’ he waited for an
answer,when he got none,he continued. ‘are
you sure you know what you saw..i mean Tom
‘i know what i saw’ she snapped at him. ‘am
sorry’ she said gently this time.’it was the lady
at the restaurant’
‘hmm.why didn’t you tell me?’ he queried.
‘you?’ she scoffed. ‘how can i trust you Jack?
you?’ her eyes went cloudy
‘hmm’ he sighed ‘ i know you it’s because of the
truth or dare incident. Well,i did it for you.’
‘you did it for me?how?’
