The Scar

Joe was the best thing in her life, she loved him and gave him everything to make him somebody. Joe was a poor boy whose family hardly eat three square meals a day but meeting Sally Ann Sanchez brought light into Joe’s shattered family. He had two younger siblings, no father and a poor mother who toiled day and night to keep her children alive.Sally was the only daughter to Hugo Sanchez, a multimillionaire and the CEO of Sanchez Holdings, a conglomerate with so many companies in its portfolio, she was a hire to a multimillion dollar real estate business.

Sally was 24years and controls 30% of her father’s business.

Joe was employed in one of the branches of Sanchez Finance Company as a security guard.

Hugo did not object to Sally’s relationship with Joe when he found out that they were seeing each other.

“Spend some money on him” he told Sally.

Joe was given a house and access to everything one can imagine, his brothers went back to school and his mother who labored like a slave had a super market of her own.

Joe he told him “Don’t fuck with my daughter, she means the world to me and i will rather burn in hell to keep her safe”. This was the only thing Hugo told Joe about his daughter and their relationship.

Joe was enjoying what he never dreamed of, he drives on luxurious cars, he later enrolled in a tertiary institute to read business administration, he was a smart young man, and his new fame made him talk of the down and every single girl wanted to have a glance of him. Joe became a star and was highly respected by all the employees of Sanchez Holdings, it was clear that he will inherit part of the business because for Sally, she was going to be his wife.

One day, Sally saw Joe dropping off a girl, she could not believe what she saw so she drove to where he parked and confronted him, it was obvious that he was cheating on her and this broke her heart.

“After all i have done for you Joe” she cried
She could not hold herself so she slapped Joe several times and Joe out of annoyance slapped her back.The next day, Hugo heard what happened and summoned Joe to see him.

“I warned you not to fuck with my daughter, but here you are.

What did i do to you?

My daughter had not eaten since yesterday and has been crying all day, should anything happen to Sally,i will remind you of your history, you punk ass”.

Two weeks has passed and Sally is yet to recover from the trauma, she has refused to eat or talk to anyone and it was obvious that there was fire on the mountain. By the third week, Joe parked all his things and left the state, he was afraid that Hugo will harm him because he has been threatening him. Sally became more depressed when it was discovered that Joe had disappeared and there was no trace of him.

One day, she drove up to the country side where she and Joe normally go to watch the stars from the top of the platform, she sat in a corner thinking of Joe, all the things they did together, how much she love him and she would never feel herself in his arms, kissing his lips, his fingers running through her hair passionately.She cried for the man she love.Her fortune meant nothing more to her, Joe was everything to her.

She stood up, her sleeves dripping with fresh tears and pulled a gun out of her purse. She had no other option than to take her life. She pointed the Gun on her head and prayed not to live from the bullet. Sally took a deep breath because she didn’t want to live any more but at the same time she was afraid to die,she was highly depressed so she closed her eyes and was about to pull the trigger then she heard a voice that made her open her eyes.

It was Joe. Sally !Sally! Please don’t do that he shouted but before she could make a move, he ran towards her and grabbed her then they began fighting for the gun.
“Leave me alone” she kept shouting. I hate you mother fucker she bowled at Joe.
“I love you Sally” he kept screaming. Do not hurt yourself please, just leave the gun.

He overpowered her and took the gun from her then dragged her close to himself, she was crying and could not hold herself, he dropped the gun on the group and kissed her passionately then ran his fingers through her hair. The kiss seemed to last forever.
“I love you with all my heart and i am so sorry for all i did but you don’t have to take your life”
Joe held her, he began explaining and begged her to forgive him.
“I have missed you all these while my Angel”, he told her. “I know that i have hurt you and your whole family but forgive me, do not even take me back but don’t hurt yourself baby”.

He kissed her once again and she looked into his eyes.
”Do you love me” she asked him
“Yes Sally and you know i do” he replied.

Joe was carried away so Sally picked up the gun and pushed him aside.
“Don’t you dare come close to me” she warned him, “you love me and here you are after all you did, you left me in pains and nothing can heal the wound in my heart Joe”.

As Joe tried to go closer to her, she pointed the gun to her head and uttered a word

“It took you too long to love me Joe”.

She pulled the trigger and Joe watched her as she fell to the ground.

He could not speak, he was trembling so he picked up the gun and knelt near the motionless body of sally and placed the gun on his head and pulled the trigger, the blast of the gun attracted people and their bodies were later discovered side by side, they were rushed to the hospital and miraculously, they both survived.

Sally recovered after two months but Joe remained in coma for six months and she was right by his bed side throughout the six months.

The Scar.

Hugo Sanchez was so touched about the whole thing and Joe’s actions.

To pull the trigger after Sally tried taking her life showed a lot of guts and that alone made him forgive Joe.

They later resolved the problem and on the 5th month of their suicidal attempts, they got married and today live happily with scars left by the bullet.


“Sally what’s that on your face” it is a scar of my love for my husband.
Joe you have got a scar on your face, what happened to you?
It is a love scar and a vow for my everlasting faithfulness to my wife.
