"Hey James, what are you doing?' Bensaid from Juliet's entrance. He
had returned. He had come to check on Juliet as he usually would… He
hadn't expected to find James hovering over her.James came back to
himself and quickly found a lie to tell.
"She has been drinking Ben" James said, trying to change the subject.
"What!! you can't be serious. Juliet doesn't do alcohol" Ben said.
"See for yourself." James told Ben and quickly went out from the room
before he could suspect anything.
Ben went close to Juliet and realized that there was indeed something
different about her that morning. He took a long look at her as she
laid in bed unconscious. He tried waking her up severally but to no
avail. He was beginning to get worried. It was not until he splashed
water on her that she responded.
When Juliet woke up, she saw Ben staring at her. She had a nasty
headache and held on to her head in pain. Ben noticed and quickly went
to get her some aspirin to help calm down the pain. Once she was done
taking the pills, Ben asked "But Juliet, what has come over you? When
did you start taking alcohol?"
Juliet told him she had not taken any alcohol but this time, Ben found
it difficult to believe her. That worried Juliet. She was still trying
to figure out how to break news of the rape incident to him and other
members of the family.
It didn't help her case that she never actually saw the rapist neither
did she see how he entered or exited from the house. There was no sign
of forced entry. In fact, there was no evidence to prove that she had
been raped. So if Ben was having trouble believing that she had not
taken alcohol, what chance was there that anyone would believe a rape
report with absolutely no evidence?
Meanwhile, James couldn't get over what he had felt when he carried
Juliet to her room. In just a short time, he had developed a strong
lustful desire for his adopted sister. As a man who never gave up, he
vowed to himself that he would satisfy his lust at all cost. Even if
it meant him being nice to Juliet.This was really not his first time…
Back in the United States, he was known to chase pretty much anything
His current girlfriend who loved him very much was based in Ghana.
James had been dating her for the past 5 years even though he did not
love her. She was only his "sex toy". Because he dutifully showered
money on her, his girlfriend, Nancy, actually thought that James loved
her. As a matter of fact, "LOVE" was not in his dictionary. The only
thing that had kept their relationship that long was that the fact
that Nancy was very possessive and was not ready to let go of James.
Right now, James's next project was Juliet and he intended to take
that very seriously. His attitude towards her immediately started to
change. Juliet, of course, was taken aback by James' sudden change of
attitude. He was relating with like her as a brother should. His
attitude towards Juliet also gave Mrs. Johnson room to be a little
nicer to her.
Everything was returning to normal… Or so it seemed. Juliet, however,
was still battling with the trauma from the rape incident. She was
waiting for the right moment to tell the family what really happened
to her that night she was left at home by herself.
One day, Mrs Johnson and Ben went out for a church meeting leaving
James and Juliet alone at home. James got some popcorn for them to
chew on as they sat and watched television together. There was a movie
on that both of them decided they wanted to see. As they watched, they
chatted and shared a laugh here and there. Several times, while Juliet
wasn't looking, James would stare at her lustfully. He felt he needed
more time alone with her.
Meanwhile, Juliet who was feeling a bit tired soon fell asleep on the
sofa. James waited till he was sure the sleep was deep and then went
closer to her. He carefully started unbuttoning her blouse… He had
successfully opened the first button, he was fiddling with the second
one when suddenly the houseboy opened the door leading to the living
room to let in his girlfriend Nancy.
James was not fast enough… Nancy took in the scene and immediately
knew what he had been trying to do with Juliet.
