A step into love Episode 19 & 20

After dinner Cindy sat in the dining room, it's obvious that she was thinking about something with how she sat down,her elbow on the dining table propping her head up while Charles was in the sitting room watching TV not that his mind is really on that TV.
Cindy remembered how John had proposed to him on their trip that day and how she'd furiously turned him down, suddenly her phone rang, she checked the screen and the caller turned out to be John so she dropped the phone without picking it, the phone rang again still showing John on the screen as the caller, so she picked it up...
"Hello John" hearing John make Charles swung his head to her direction
"howdy dear, how are you?" John asked over the phone
"I'm good" she responded casually
" I'm sorry about what happened the other time, I guessed I was overwhelmed" he pleaded
"it's alright, no problem"
"hmm, but I'm outside your house now"
"outside? Why?" she asked in surprise making her voice loudable that Charles could hear clearly
"I just want to apologize in a better way, I'm sorry if that offend you too but you can't make me come and just go like that, at least please come out let me see you"
"alright, I'm on my way" Cindy replied and hung up her phone, she was putting on a singlet with a short so she'd to go in to change into something better to protect herself from the cold outside. as she was going up to her room she made a phone call with Angelina and they talked over,
Few minutes later, she came out putting on skin socks with small skirt and a Jumper ready to go outside but was blocked by Charles when she got to the door,
"what's the meaning of this?" she scowled
"you're not going out Cindy, not to that devil" Charles replied
"devil, you say? I don't think you're getting yourself. He's my friend okay?, so get yourself off my way" she snorted
"remember the rules and regulations that I have to be protecting you wherever you go"
She scoffed and move closer to Charles "first of all, you're not a God neither are you my parents to protect me, secondly I'm not a baby here, I've spent more than three years in this country so I know my way if I get lost and thirdly you are talking about rules and regulations, the rules and regulations you disapproved when it was given by your mom, the rules and regulations you detested so much." now she'd been raising her voice, shouting "did you even ever want to protect me before if not you're forced, is It your own interests to do so, were you even happy with me that I came here, tell me were you..... "
She was cut short as Charles suddenly draw her closer and kissed her, she was stunned but quickly found herself and pushed him away "I'm warning you for the last time, don't mess with me" she warned and stormed out while Charles sloth back to the sofa.
.....................................
"wow, thank you so much you came" John commented as Cindy entered his car sitting beside him "here, I bought this on my way " he handed a chilled drink to Cindy who hesitate before collecting it "thanks, well, I didn't just bought it, it symbolizes something"
"and what was that?" Cindy asked as she sipped in the drink without suspecting or noticing that the drink have been opened before giving to her
"the drink is cold and not hot, so I don't want you to be hot to me as a result of the mistake I recently made"
"I told you I've forgiven you"
"then prove to me by drinking all the drink at once" John requested
"you mean this cold drink?"
"yeah just try" he smiled
"okay" Cindy replied and gulped down the drink "it's too cold" she replied touching her chest but something became strange, her eyes was closing together and everything besides her seems to be fading, she wanted to talk and say a word but she couldn't and finally she slumped back on the chair
John smiled and shook his head "had it been you've accepted the proposal, everything wouldn't have turn out like this"
Suddenly he scowled and kicked the engine to start,then drove off.....

Episode 20
Cindy opened her eyes slowly, everything still fading a little bit for some moments until her eyes opened clearly, she choked at the sight of the room she's in, everything is dark except for some dim light which can't look for needle,she wanted to stand up from where she was sitting but realized that her legs had been bounded together, she tried to lift her hands to undo the bondage but her hands had been stucked to the arm of the chair (bounded also), she became afraid and let out a shout only to find out that her mouth was not left behind, it has been covered and bounded too, tears dropped from her eyes, she prayed everything should be a dream ,her mind quickly stray to Charles and his warning, and more tears dropped from her eyes as she sobbed quietly, she hadn't listen to a serious warning because of anger and here she was in an unknown frightening room, she bit her lip in regret.
Suddenly the door was flung opened and a guy entered, Cindy could only see the leg of the person because she's not raising her head up, the legs were standing before her so she decided to look up and to her astonishment the guy turned out to be John, her eyes widened in surprise, she wanted to open her mouth and say something but she couldn't cause it had been bounded, confusion and surprise was written all over her face and John could see this so he undid her mouth's bondage for her,
"John?" she asked to confirm what she'd seen, John is her friend, her best friend, so how could he do something like this to her, it is impossible! "John is that you?" she asked again when she didn't get reply to her first question,
"yes, it's me, John Suminski, your friend" the voice snapped
"John, why are you here? What happened?" she asked still not believing he can do such thing
"what kind of stupid question are you asking me, are you so dumb to have not remember how I'd drugged you to sleep?, even if you don't remember, you should've know that I'm the one who bond you here" John snapped rashly
"John, I don't believe any of this, I mean why will you do such things?" she asked amidst tears
"oh! Why will I do such things?" he scoffed "well, I don't blame you because you don't know me but I will let you know me now, I'll let you know who I am" he paused breathing heavily obviously furious "I am the thief you exposed at the airport some years back" John concluded and Cindy choked and gape at him, she was short of words, so speechless as her tongue stucked up to the roof of her mouth.
"I was introduced to a bad gang after I disavowed my parents" John started, pacing up and down slowly "even though it's not my intention and enthusiasm to join it, I have no choice since I have no place and no one to be feeding me, after joining the group, everything was going well and I was doing good and excellent in everywork given to me by my boss until a day My boss sent my partner and I to steal a certain woman's purse, although we were surprised about it cause he doesn't go for small fish and we don't know how he usually get information on what to be stolen and where that thing is, cause we always meet everything the way he tell us, but we're already used to it, so we didn't bother to ask him anything. The plan went successfully but" he paused and faced Cindy "a girl from nowhere disrupted everything, she exposed us and I was arrested while my partner was able to escape, I was really vexed with the girl that I sworn to take revenge on her by all costs, I was imprisoned for a year and after my tenure in the prison my boss sent me away, I was lucky enough that he didn't kill me, so I went back to school with the amount I've made from the dirty job until I get to know that the girl I've sworn to revenge on is also schooling in the same school as mine, so I took up a plan to be close to you before I revenge" he sighed ,stuffed his hands into his trouser and rested on the wall "but the more I got closer, the more my plans on revenge weaken because after my sister, I found out that you are the only one I can confide in, you treat me the way, my sister used to, scold me when I'm supposed to be scolded, encourage me when I'm down and advice me when I'm confused, in summary you always remind me of my sister and assured me that I still have someone who loves me, but right now, I think I'm wrong"
"you're not John" Cindy finally speak out "I love you but I love you as my friend, you are a good man with a good heart, don't be sway down by small thing, it's not everything that needs revenge, I already told you that sometimes bad things do happened so that good thing can happen, and all you need is to concentrate on the good things and not the other way round, so please all you need is to control..."
"don't try to make me release you cause I wouldn't" he chipped in looking furious "unless you accept to be mine"
Cindy shook her head as tears freely scroll down her eyes "you can't force me John"
He smirked and dipped his right hand into his trouser at his back pocket "you think so?" he brought out his hand from his pocket and the thing he'd dipped his hand into his trouser to pick turned out to be a pistol, he set it on her head ready to pull the trigger "now I'm giving you five minutes to choose between this two choices, be mine or die"................
