LOVE BEYOND REASON…..(18+)…..Part 7


The next day, Ugochi woke up to a lot pain. She was alone
in bed and she assumed Dawn must have gone in to work.
Her body ached so bad she could barely move from the
bed. She would have to call in sick to the office.
Although she was shaking with the pain assuaging her
body, no matter how bad that pain was it couldn’t compare
with the pain in her heart. She couldn’t think of the
happenings of last night without dissolving in tears. She
couldn’t believe her fairy tale could turn into a nightmare
so quickly. She forced the thought from her mind
She tried to maneuver herself out of bed with as little pain
as possible. One of her eyes was still swollen shut so she
could only see out of the one good eye and it was
throbbing badly. She grimaced as she set her feet on the
floor, tentatively rising and walked to the bathroom to
survey the damage in the mirror. She gasped when she
saw herself.
Her right eye was swollen shut and the other one was
bloodshot. Her right cheek was also swollen, she touched
it tentatively and found it very tender. She had a cut on her
lower lip, and she could barely move her head without
feeling a slight crick in her neck. She looked down at her
body and saw a myriad of cuts and bruises. If her mother
saw her now, she would barely recognize her.
Ugochi sat on the toilet seat wondering what she did to
deserve this kind of beating from Ikem. Even if he had
seen her with Fredrick and assumed she was cheating on
him, it could have all been resolved with a rational
conversation, not this barbaric act. She could never go
back to him now even if he finally understood her
relationship with Fredrick. She could never be with a man
who would use his fists instead of his words. Her heart
broke as she thought of the years lost.
She decided to dust her pain off and move on. First thing
to do would be to contact Fredrick and let him know the
developments and both of them need to trash out their
next course of action. She limped slowly to the living room
and was so surprised to see Dawn sprawled on the settee,
watching TV.
“Dawn? Why are you still home?” she asked incredulously.
Dawn sat up immediately and scrutinized her from head to
toe. “Why are you up this early? Do you feel alright?” she
asked sharply
“Yes babe, I feel okay. Why are you home?”
“I couldn’t leave you all alone today now. I called in sick at
the office.”
“Oh, you didn’t have to do that. I’m okay, just some minor
cuts and bruises.”

Dawn shook her head vigorously. “Girl, those cuts and
bruises are anything but minor. What the hell happened to
you last night? I refuse to believe it was Ikem that beat you
up like that.”
Ugochi walked towards the settee and sat beside her
friend. “My dear, I didn’t want to believe it too until it
“Why? Why would he do that to you?” Dawn was
genuinely perplexed.
“If I tell you I know the reason, then I’m lying. I have my
suspicions though.”
“So, he didn’t tell you? He gave no explanation for his
Ugochi shrugged. “I don’t know, Dawn. I just don’t know.”
“You said you have your suspicions? What are they?”
“I’d rather not tell you now. It is a very sensitive matter
and it affects a third party. I’d rather straighten it out with
the person concerned before sharing.”
Dawn watched her closely. “Is everything okay, Ugochi? It
is unlike you to hide things from your friends.”
“I’ll let you know when the time is right. I promise.”
“Okay then. I’ll give you your privacy.”
“You’re welcome.” Dawn stood up. “So, what would you
like for breakfast?”
“I don’t think I can eat much with this swollen cheek and
cut lips. Maybe I’ll just take some beverage?”
“Okay. Let me make some for you.”
“Thanks dear. Thanks for being there.”
“What are friends for if not for inconvenience?” Dawn said
Ugochi laughed. “Oh please, I can’t laugh. My cheek
“Sorry. Beverage coming up.”
As soon as Dawn moved in the direction of the small
kitchenette, Ugochi brought out her phone and dialed
Frederick’s number. He picked up on the first ring.
“Ugochi hi. I’ve been trying to reach you since last night.
Are you alright?”
“No, I’m not Frederick. We need to talk. Preferably face to
“What’s up?”
“I’d rather hold on till we see.”
“Alright. Name the time and place.”
“I can’t come out, I’m not feeling too great. Can you come
to Dawn’s place? As soon as you’re able?”
“Okay. Just send me her address. I’ll try to be there in the
next two hours.”
“Alright, I’ll do that.”
“See you soon.”
“Yeah. See you.”
Ugochi dropped the call and quickly sent the directions to
him. The sooner the meeting can take place, the better for
all involved.
