15. Chapter Fifthteen
RECAP: "You see, he's going to be the father of my child.” Victoria said rubbing her 1 month term tummy
Before I knew it, I’d put Kit and Mulan into Dru’s Playing Room, and was at the door. Druid looked like she was going to cut off my balls, and shove them in Victoria’s mouth.
“Why are you here.” I seethed
“Like I said.” Victoria barged into Druid’s house
“Xavier is the father of my child, and he shouldn’t be shacking up with some old bitch. He should be with me.” She said
That was it. Druid knocked the fake raybands off her face. A purple bruise was surely forming. Victoria raised a hand to her cheek. “Get the fuck outta my house!” Dru said practically throwing her out.
“You bitch, I’m calling the police.” Victoria yelled taking out her phone “Hello, operator I’d like to press assault charges. I’ve been physically abused.”
“Good and while you're at say hello to Chief Tomlin for me.” She slammed the door
When she turned around her eyes, were so dark I could barely identify her brown iris from her pupil. I saw nothing but disgust. “I want you to get your shit, and get the fuck outta my house. The kids can stay,.... I just...can't even look at you right now.” She said
I never wanted to see her this way. At that moment the beautiful woman I once knew was lost to me. I tried to pull her wrist towards me but she smacked my hands away like they burned her skin.
“Dru, please. I haven’t slept with her since, Kit was born. There's no way that child is mine. Please just talk to me.” I pleaded chasing her up the marble stairs
"How do I know this isn't just some sidechick drama, and you've been screwing her on the side. How could you do this to me Xavier!!" She yelled and as she slammed the guest bedroom door.
I tried to turn the lock on the door of the guest bedroom, but it went stiff. She locked herself in, away from me where my arms cant reach.
“Druid, please I’ll take a paternity test.” I got no response “Come on, I can’t lose you......... Dru...you're everything to me.”
I heard her body slump against the door “You’d take the test….to stay with me.” Her voice was choking up
I felt horrible, how could I make her cry like that. “Of course, I love you. I’d do anything you’d ask of me." My heart was beating a mile a minute it shattering at the sound of her crying.....I caused that pain.
5 minutes went by before I heard her sigh and the door unlock. She only opened it a peep. “I want you to set up an appointment, and get bloodwork and a lie detector test. Until then I don’t want to fucking see you.” She shut the door in my face.
There's no way I'll let anything come before Dru and my siblings. I felt so lost. I couldn't sleep in my own bed, the sheets absorbed her rosewater scent. Her scent was too intoxicating, it made me wanna race to her house and sweep her off her feet. But I couldn't, she needed space and I could understand that. And when I could get to sleep I'd wake up with her name on the tip of my tongue, or I'd grab the left side of the bed (where she sleeps) only to find cold sheets. I never felt more alone.
I had school, so I had to get up and walk into that hellhole. I'm glad I didn't have my brother and sister right now, I don't need them seeing me so.....so broken. I hoped in the shower for a quickie, and didn't even brush my hair. I knew I looked like hell. I threw on a Northface jacket and some sweatpants, leaving my hair in its swooped natural state. When I parked my car, more people were staring at me then usually. 'I wonder if its from the show just being released, or cause I look like I hadn't seen my girlfriend in 13 days 6 hours, and I looked down at my watch, 23 minutes. Yes I kept count. Because I'm serious about Dru and I won't give her up for the world. Don't get me wrong I want to see my siblings too.'
I looked up to see Ben and Logan crowding around my locker. I grunted and Logan took that as a sign to step back. "You look worse than yesterday, fam. Have you called her yet?"
"Only enough to run her phone bill up for the month." I jimmied my locker open, and took out my world arts textbook, slamming the door shut. "I cant take this much longer man. I can't even sleep in my own room, everything reminds me of her."
