Betrayed by my body
He pulled out of me and I got up, still
backing him I spoke, “I had to go to the
hospital for a checkup and tests since
no protection was used….I think you
should know…. thats the reason I also
held off from s£× with you all this
while, to be sure I contacted nothing.”
I couldn’t face him, he must feel I had
been tainted by some other person, he
probably didn’t want to think about it
and that was why he was avoiding
talking about it.
“Its alright Noms…” he said and I
turned. “I guess the tests came back
“Yeah…but…” I frowned searching his
face which he kept averted at me. “You
are taking this too well…aren’t you
supposed to ask more questions?
Threaten to go to the police….?”
“Noms,” he finally snapped turning to
look at me “Did he hurt you that night?”
“No…but it was a rape all the same,” I
said with a shrug.
“Which you enjoyed, right?” He
“Kevwe!” I gasped “What’s that
supposed to mean?”
He sighed coming closer to me, then he
took my hand in his and said, “I am
sincerely sorry about that but can we
let this drop? I really don’t care about
it, if you can move on from it, so can I.”
Wait, something wasn’t right with this
scenario, what man whose wife was
fcked by another man would take
things this well….and then it hit me. I
narrowed my eyes, it couldn’t be.
“Fck, it was you wasn’t it?” I accused
taking my hand from his.
He didn’t say anything, he just stared at
me and I had my answer.
“Kevwe, what sick joke were you
playing with me? Was it a fetish of
some kind or what?” I flipped, suddenly
angry at him and very confused.
“Threatening me in our home? With a
He shook his head then “No baby I can
explain…please reduce your voice….we
don’t want the neighbours listening, do
“I don’t care about the freaking
neighbours!” I spat with such venom
that my br£@sts jiggled “You raped your
own wife, me, and you sure as hell
better have an awesome explanation or
else the neighbours would be the least
of your worries.”
With a sigh, He reached out to me,
grabbed my arm and pulled me to
himself, wrapping his hands about me
tightly while I buried my face on his
I went willingly, I was powerless to stop
him even though it all confused me but
I trusted him. I knew him, there was an
explanation but what made me mad
was he hadn’t come clean about it
“I love you so much Onome…..I love
you so much that I also did something
Pulling back from him a little, I raised
my head to look up at him now needing
to see him as he spoke. He couldn’t lie
to me while I looked him in the eyes.
“For a while now I have been worried
about us…. our s£×ual relationship has
been quite drab and you wouldn’t relax
or let me touch you for too long……I
swear I hadn’t planned to do it to you
but I got back from my trip a day early
to surprise you….I turned off the lights
and accosted you as you stepped in…it
wasn’t a knife but just a plastic spatula
from the kitchen but you were so
scared that you didn’t even look…. and
then the wicked thought came to
me….the wicked thought that if I could
get you to be still for once, I could
possibly fulfil the pent up s£×ual
desires that have been running through
my mind since we got married.
It was a stupid thing to do, blindfolding
and gagging you…. I was grateful that
you responded well to my touch but at
the end when you began crying and I
saw the look on your face, I couldn’t
bring myself to tell you it had been me
all along. It was a stupid thing to do
and I had only kept it up thinking you
were urging me on because you
probably figured it was me but when I
saw the tears…..I realised you thought
you had been taken advantage of.”
He sighed again before going on,”I
believed you would hate me if you
knew it was me who did that to you, so
I left for the night and returned early
the next day while you were still in bed.
I saw how resigned you were and I had
wanted to say something but I hadn’t
known how to begin.”
I suddenly flared up, removing myself
from his grip, I yelled.
“How could you even leave me there
when you knew how upset I was? You
just left and let me put myself through
hell ……you let me almost go out of my
mind with worry thinking that I had
been raped by a stranger..wondering
how I would break the news to you…are
“Baby…Noms…I am sorry.”He pleaded.
Leaving the kitchen, I walked through
the dining room and into the living
room, Kevwe following closely behind
me. I needed some space from his
hpt.body to think clearly.
“Noms…Noms come back and lets talk
Catching up with me he held my arm
and pulled me back to him.
“Rukevwe, please give me some space
to think.” I managed to say, my resolve
beginning to weaken as I stared at his
“Baby please talk to me, don’t walk.”
“So now you want to talk?”
He sighed, “Do you trust me babe?”
“I don’t know, should I?” I asked him
back with a shrug.
“Onome, you know I would never do
you harm intentionally…I can’t say the
same for you though, you did try to
drug me into sleeping with you.”
I closed my eyes, remembering my own
foolishness… I shook my head, who was
I to judge him when I wasn’t much
“We have serious issues, you and I,
Kevwe.” I told him.
He nodded in agreement. “We need to
communicate our issues better….no
“No more secrets.” I agreed.
Rape was never a good thing but this
had pointed out some issues in our year
old marriage. Our gazes held and I
vividly recalled the pleasure he had
awakened my body.
Staring at his broad chest and perfect
body only got me aroused and made me
want to drag him to do more
pleasurable things to me once more.
He was staring back at me and I could
see the hungry desire in his eyes, but
he wouldn’t touch me unless I gave him
the green light.
“I love you Rukevwe and I do trust
you.” I told him meaning every word of
it. He was Rukevwe Agha, the man who
had swept me off my feet, I knew him
and he was no rapist.
“Does this mean you forgive me, my
love?” He asked taking my hand and I
“Only if you promise me one thing.” I
told him keeping a straight face.
“Anything.” He breathed raising my
hand to his lips.
“Promise me an abundance of wanton
and sultry pleasure for the rest of our
lives.” I told him, my straight face
breaking into a smile.
He threw back his head with laughter
feeling relieved, he had probably
thought I was going to demand for his
“You can count on it.” He said, pulling
me close to him, planting another of his
core melting klzzes on my lips before
swooping me off my feet and into his
arms. “Let’s adjourn to the bedroom
where we may proceed on to more
wonderful pleasures, shall we?”
