Later, in the mid-afternoon, Tony and Thomas were out in the fields. Rebecca was planning to make something light for the boys then it struck her that Timothy haven’t come downstairs to eat breakfast.
She gasped….has he fainted in his room and nobody seems to remember him or….she gasped even louder…..was he planning to commit suicide this morning, she shook her head twice, nothing bad could have happened to him…
She knocked on his door the third time but there was no response, maybe she should call his brothers, she knocked again and this time she held the door knob and tried to push the door open then a force from inside opens the door, she lost her balance and fell into his chest. Timothy’s chest. She straightened herself
“I am sorry but I was concerned, you haven’t come downstairs for your breakfast”, he looked at her, the same silence
“I must say, your food is cold, I may warm it and bring it to your room if you don’t want to come downstairs”…
“Why don’t you stay at your own post than disturbing me?”, his eyes was in flames and there was anger in his voice
“I….I was just worried, you haven’t eaten since morning and it is my duty to feed you and take good care of you”…
“Well, as you can see, i am not hungry”
“That’s not an excuse, you must eat to remain strong, so I will just go downstairs, warm your food and bring it up for you to eat”, she turns to go downstairs as Timothy grabs her wrist, tightening his grip on it, knowing fully, will leave some bruises on it
“What do you want from me? Why don’t you just let me be?”, his voice was deep now, Rebecca groan in pain, trying to break free from his grip…
“Please, you’re hurting me!”, he loosened his grip on her wrist and held her by the shoulders
“You’re making me go crazy, I don’t want to ever see you near my door again”, he held her more tightly and he hugged her
“I want you! I don’t know why but I just want you”, she jerked herself free as she lifted her head to meet his gaze, she stared at him and hurried downstairs..
“Rebecca!”, she heard the door close minutes later as she makes her way to her bedroom.
She stands behind them, watching them eat dinner, Thomas broke the silence
“Timothy, what did you use your Saturday to do?”, Tony wiped his mouth and he said
“I quite noticed it, you spend all of today in your room”, Thomas laughed.
