"What are you even saying? Why are you even saying this? What did I do to you?"

  I was confused, confusion doesn't even describe the way I was feeling right now... I don't even know how to describe it, I was lost for words, my head was spinning, I felt so sick and I was disgusted, with myself- did I really- no, I couldn't have-

"Rebecca I-"

She held out her palms to my face, motioning me to stop talking. "The first day you brought me here, you said something about using me to pulp," she sniffed. "I never thought you would go through with it, I was actually beginning to think you were different, I wanted to help you- I wanted to make you open up to me... Last night you crossed all the boundaries, you forced me into bed with you! I begged you to leave me alone, but you didn't listen, instead you abused me, you-"

"Stop!” I raked my hands through my hair, feeling my head ache intensity. "I would never do such a thing to you! I would never touch you without your consent... Drunk or not."

She went quiet for a moment.

My heart was like a wild hammer against my chest, the thought of doing something like that to Rebecca was not pleasant... At all, I moved even closer to her, trying to see if she was lying or not... This time, she didn't push me away, I gently cupped her face in my hands, rubbing the tears off her face with my thumb... "Listen, I might have been drunk and I might have said some awful things to you, but I'm sure as hell that I didn't do anything to hurt you... I would never hurt you Rebecca, stop whatever game you're playing- please."

She pushed me away again.

"So you're trying to imply that I'm lying? Why would I even lie about that?! You might not remember, but I do! I've never been so scared in entire my life! I called April, I was crying my eyes out- I could barely make out one word..."

   I rubbed my eyes, feeling the frustration sink in the pit of my stomach.

She looked like she was telling the truth- why would she lie? And April mentioned something about her crying on the phone... But still, why can't I believe a word she's saying? I can't possibly have been so drunk to that extent... And even though we were to have done something intimate- it would have been just a kiss-

Wait a minute- I kissed her, yes.. I remember kissing her, but I also remember stopping... After that, I can't remember anything...

I gritted my teeth together, causing my head to hurt the more. "Rebecca, stop playing with my head- I remember kissing you last night, it got out of hand and I stopped it..."

"Do you remember anything after that?" She asked me.

"No- but-”

"I slapped you... And you got very angry, you pulled me by my hair and pushed me to your- your bed... I tried to escape, but you pulled me back, covered your hands to my mouth so I wouldn't scream... Do you remember anything of that?"

I furrowed my brows in utter confusion, rubbing my aching head. "No, I don't."

"So why are you still trying to defend yourself? I get it, you were drunk, but I expected you to still respect me as a woman..."

"And that's what I did? I don't know about what you're saying but I would never hurt you the way you're implying, I wasn't brought up that way..." I moved closer to her. "I would never do that to you, what you're saying right now... It's breaking everything that I'm made of- so please, if you're joking, stop it... It's not funny." I couldn't even recognize my own voice when I said those words, it wasn't hard, it wasn't soft, it was just void of any kind of emotion.

Silence was all that followed.

My eyes were pinned to her compelling orbs the whole time, trying to detect any sign of lies, but the only thing that was breaking me to pieces were the sincerity I found there...

Did I really have sex with her?

God no.

"It's fine if you've forgotten... It's better even, let's pretend like nothing happened... You were drunk anyways... Mistakes happen-"

"I would never make such a mistake-"

"How would you know? Do you even remember everything that you said to me last night?"

I raked my hands through my hair... "No."

"So how do you know you didn't take advantage of me?"

I couldn't reply.

   This was one reason why I hated getting drunk- the last time this shit happened was when I found out that my mom was finally leaving Orlando, I tried everything I could to make her stay, but she refused... I got so drunk and the next morning I woke up in my company's store room... Yeah, the store room, and till date, I had no idea how I got there...

So if whatever Rebecca is saying is true? Then- it could be possible.

But still... It's Rebecca...

"You know what? It doesn't matter anymore... What has happened has happened, let's drop it." She said, moving away from me, but I was quick to pull her back by her arm.

She turned to face me, surprise written all over her face.

I sighed before speaking. "I really didn't think that- that I would take advantage of you- and even if I can't remember- and if you could be pulling mind games with me right now- then... I'm sorry, you can't imagine how disgusted I am with myself... I would never have hurt you if I was in my right mind,"

I felt the feeling of immense guilt settle beneath my heart, making it jump from time to time. But I wasn't really going to just give in to this feeling, if something did happen between us, then I would have remembered... How the hell will I not remember having sex with someone? Considering that someone was Rebecca...

There's only one way to find out.

"You know, I once had a sister- god bless her soul... It was a long time ago, she wasn't really my blood sister, but we referred to ourselves as siblings... She lived alone in a small house, gambled and associated with the wrong people... Soon after, I got the news that she was dead, they said some guys attacked her in her house- râpêd her- murdered her- the police men thought that I knew something about it, so they issued a complaint about me... But my dad proved my Innocence... I made a vow to never be like her Murderers but seeing the situation we're both in, it only convinced me that I'm no different from them."

Guilt was all I saw in Rebecca's compelling eyes.

"I'm sorry- I know my apology doesn't suffice for what I did to you last night... But it's all I can say... Excuse me."

I walked away from her, into my study.

If I know Rebecca like I think I do, then she'd be dying of guilt right now, only if she was lying about the whole sex thing.... Seeing as I never had a friend who got râpêd in a small house... That sob story was fake... I'll give her an hour or two to think about it...

If she doesn't come clean?

That only meant she was speaking the truth... I'll actually have no choice than to let her go...
