To err is human but to forgive is divine. Forgiveness mostly favours the giver than the receiver because when you refuse to forgive someone that hurt you, they hold and retain a certain amount of power over you. Whatever takes less of your attention has less effect over your feelings so the best way to completely move on from a hurtful experience is to forgive and let go; but that doesn’t necessarily mean the person has to be close to you again as they used to.
Looking at things, Barbara didn’t seem like she was ready to forgive Mandy, talk more of forgetting what she did to her. To Barbara, Mandy was a closed chapter in her life that she didn’t want to reopen.
To be completely honest, Barbara still felt hurt due to the betrayal she got from her best friend, and hated her the more for letting herself became a tool in the hands of the devil. Barbara wasn’t ready to forgive a back stabber, liar and betrayer; she was ok being without any friends and just wanted to concentrate on her relationship.
On hearing that there was no room for forgiveness, Mandy dropped a few tears and kept begging Barbara to let go. While she was still pleading, Barbara banged the door and shut it; leaving Mandy outside. It was then that it dawned on her that Barbara was honestly done with their friendship. After waiting for few more minutes, she sadly walked away and went back home.
Back inside, Barbara laid on her bed and started tearing up again. This time, she was crying because it all still felt like a dream to her that a friendship of over six years was ruined and didn’t feel the same anymore. The honest truth of the matter’s that it would be almost impossible for things to ever go back to normal again.
Like I always say, trust is very fragile and once broken, can hardly ever go back to normal. It took them six years to build a beautiful friendship but only took few actions to ruin it all. It’s sad that people don’t think their actions through before engaging on it, but rather just go with the flow of their emotions and feelings.
Alot of things go wrong when people aren’t able to be in-charge of their feelings and emotions. Being a slave to your feelings would always leave you miserable, that’s why it’s advisable to think things through before acting. If only Mandy thought things through, she would have realised the consequences of her actions if caught. So sad she didn’t!
On the other hand, Precious was careful not to interfere in the ongoing quarrel between his partner and Mandy; in fact, he never mentioned Mandy’s name ever and only focused on working things with Barbara.
A month after the incident, Precious decided to take Barbara on a weekend getaway to a beautiful quiet resort. She initially turned down the offer but later agreed when she realised that she also needed the getaway.
They arrived in the evening and was checked into their room. Barbara took her shower and went outside to receive some fresh air, while Precious was busy with an important business phone call. Barbara strolled to the beach and sat at the shore. She fell into deep thoughts and totally forgot herself.
After over 30 minutes of being lost in thoughts, Barbara was brought back to life when Precious kissed her neck from behind. She smiled because she knew it was him. “Why are you out here alone?” He asked, “Because you were busy answering a phone call when we are supposed to be away from all that” she replied.
Precious suddenly realised that he wasn’t supposed to attend to any work issues while on a trip, so he immediately apologised. “I’m sorry baby, now come inside it’s getting cold out here” he said and jacked her up from the ground. Barbara started blushing and wrapped her arms around his heck while he carried her inside. Their room wasn’t too far from the beach so they got there in no time.
When they got into the room, Precious gently laid Barbara on the bed and wanted to stand up when she held his shirt and pulled him back to the bed. Precious smiled because he knew what she wanted but wasn’t sure it was the right thing to do; not after the Mandy saga. Ever since the incident with Mandy, Precious hadn’t touched Barbara. He was scared because she had become insecure, due to what Mandy said about her sexual performance.
As they both laid on the bed kissing, Barbara reached for Precious clothes to take them off but he stopped her. “Baby let’s not go further, I don’t want you to awaken any memories” he said but Barbara didn’t say a word in response and continued kissing him.
They kissed for a while before Precious finally got turned on. The atmosphere got charged up and he was ready to devour Barbara. He reached for her neck and licked it down to her ears. Barbara reciprocated his actions back to him and unbuttoned his shirt while at it.
Deep down in Precious mind, he was a bit impressed that Barbara was gradually picking up and wasn’t dull anymore. Out of excitement, he said; “Babe you don’t have to try too hard oh, I love you still”, but Barbara still ignored him till she was done unbuttoning his shirt. The first place her lips went to were his nipples and she sucked it gently.
At that moment, Precious was already in cloud nine and didn’t want to come down. Barbara was bursting his brain with that single action. He moaned in pleasure and his eyes turned red; ready to devour her. Before she could suck further, Precious took charge and dominated the game. It was Barbara’s turn to beg for mercy because Precious was in cloud nine already and wanted every bit of her body.
They made love that night like never before and forgot every problems they were having in their relationship due to Mandy. The bed sheets was soaked with sweats even though there was an air-condition in the room. Precious exhausted everything in him on Barbara and she did same to him too. They bonded more and cuddled each other afterwards.
Unknowingly to Barbara, Precious had a big surprise up his sleeves and was just waiting for the right time to take action. He wanted to take their relationship to the next level and make it official so as to avoid losing her.
Precious purchased an engagement ring and brought it with him on the trip; in fact, the main reason he brought her there was because he wanted to pop the big question.
The next day after eating breakfast together, Precious asked Barbara to follow him for a walk to the beach. They strolled down and came to a beautifully decorated place for two. Precious secretly arranged for that place to be set up for his proposal.
Barbara was still unaware of what was going on. When they entered that spot, Precious knelt down and brought out the ring from his pocket. That sight alone was enough to😇😇 land Barbara in coma. She was extremely shocked and held her chest in the process.
“What’s going on babe?” Barbara surprisingly asked, “I want you to be my wife and the mother of my unborn children, would you marry me?.
With tears falling from Barbara’s eyes, she gently said; “Yes baby I’ll marry you, I love you so much”.
