Episode 22: Love Saw It

“Terry, it’s my ex-boyfriend, Kevin. I can’t believe he came over here. He called me a few days ago. I told him very clearly not to call me anymore. He’s not getting it. And Terry, I haven’t seen or heard from him in over 2 years before he called me out of the blue,” I said.

“You know you don’t have to explain anything to me, Syrah but he’s not going to be coming over here to harass you or stalk you either,” said Terry “Is he still out there?”

“I don’t know,” I said “Why don’t I just go answer the door and let him know not to come back here again or maybe I should call the police.”

“Naw, you don’t have to call the police. I’m here so, you go check him at the door and let me know if you need me.”

I went back to the door and the doorbell rang again.

“Who is it?” I asked even though I already knew. “Why is he being a bug-a-boo?” I said to myself.

“Syrah, aw sweetie, did I wake you up? It’s me Kev.” he said.

“No you didn’t wake me up,” I said as I slightly opened the door. “Kevin, what do you want? You can’t just come by my apartment like this. I told you I was not interested in any kind of relationship, or friendship, or communication with you ever again. If you come by here again, I’m going to get a restraining order against you. I’m not playing. This is not cool.”

“Baby I said I was sorry and I’m ready for us now. Please Syrah, I, I still love you. I want you to marry me. See I got this for you,” begged Kevin as he put his hand in his pocket.

Kevin pulled a small light turquoise Tiffany’s ring box out of his pocket and opened it. Inside was a sparkling, beautiful round diamond solitaire ring that looked like it must’ve been 4 or 5 carats!

“Dang that’s a big diamond,” I thought.

“Oh my God, Kevin, I’m really flattered and this is really beautiful, but I can’t accept that,” I said with concern in my voice. “I’m not in love with you anymore. I don’t feel the same and I’m in a relationship with someone I really like and care about a lot. Please leave Kevin. Please”

“Baby, everything okay?” Terry asked as he walked behind me and put his hands around my waist.

“Oh, so he’s the reason why, huh?” said Kevin.

“Yes, and that’s what I told you Kevin, but you refuse hear that,” I said.

“You are so stupid Syrah. Do you see this ring? This is what you always wanted, the same one we looked at when I took you to Tiffany’s. I don’t even know why I wasted my time coming here. I was trying to help you out, but if you want to be a dumb b*&$h then cool.”

“Man, get the hell out of here!” Terry said in a voice I’d never heard him use before.

Then he stepped in front of me and pushed Kevin down outside of the door. The ring fell on the ground and Kevin angrily snatched it up.

“Man I better not ever see you back around Syrah again,” said Terry.

Kevin got up. His eyes were bloodshot red. He face looked different to me, dark, and downright evil. He didn’t look like himself and it was almost like he was another person.

“I don’t want you, you nappy headed b^%$h. You ain’t never gonna find nobody to love you. This fool ain’t never gonna love you. You ain’t gone do nothing but get played cause you stupid like that,” said Kevin as he kind of laughed “I was just gonna hit the skins for a few weeks anyway, take my ring back while your knotty head was sleep and leave.” He laughed again.

Terry stepped outside the door with his fist raised and make a motion to punch Kevin’s teeth out. However, Kevin ran like a roach when the lights get cut on. He got in his car and squealed out of the parking lot.

Kevin’s words were indeed hurtful to me but I didn’t cry this time. The last time I did.

“Baby are you okay?” asked Terry as he hugged me with a reassuring squeeze. “Don’t you even dare believe what that clown said because I already love you and I’ll never treat you the way he did or talk to you or about you like that. You are special to me and I mean what I say. Do you believe me?”

Terry looked at me and I kept my head buried in his chest for a while. I did believe him and I cried.

“Why did I have to start crying?” I thought to myself. “Because he loves you and you know it.” I silently answered back.

Terry lifted my head and we walked back into the apartment and sat on the couch.

“I’m sorry Terry. I didn’t know he was that crazy,” I said still sounding a little teary eyed.

“It’s not your fault sweetheart so you don’t have to apologize,” he said. “And I was thinking maybe I should stay here tonight just in case he decides to be a true dummy and come back to stalk you. I mean, I can sleep on the couch, no problem. I just want to make sure my baby is safe.”

I shook my head to give consent.

He pulled me closer and put his arm around me again and kissed me on the forehead, then ever so sweetly on the lips.

“This man is really serious,” I thought to myself. “Thank you Lord!”
“I want you to stay and I just want you to hold me like this all night,” I said.

That night Terry held me all night just as I requested. That night I saw a change in my heart. For the first time in a long time, I allowed my heart to believe a man and trust him to be there for me, protect me, and make me feel secure. Love saw it and made me change.
