Tarago Jakobus was 6’4”, intelligent, extremely wealthy with a Midas touch. He was also openly racist, politically incorrect and a chauvinistic pig who told offensive jokes. He loved to party and was used to women vying for his attention. So when his eyes fell on Tanin, he expected her to just melt into his bed and be grateful that he even looked her way.
To his utter surprise, she was totally unimpressed with his wealth, thought he was an uneducated buffoon and publicly rejected him. Of course he was shocked and humiliated by her response.
But no woman had ever turned Tarago down before, and he found her fascinating. He became obsessed with her and decided to win her over his way – destroy all that is precious to her, so that she would have no choice but to need him. If that didn’t work, he’d switch to plan ‘B’ – take away her freedom and throw her ass in jail. And being the absolute bastard that he was, he did.
Obsessed With Me is a modern-day love story.
“When I think of a husband, I think of a knight in shining armour. Someone who protects you and your heart from anyone who wants to hurt you. It’s a good thing you’re not married, Tarago. You’d make a lousy husband.”
I turn off the taps and step out of the shower, leaving him dripping in it.
“Your wife would be very disappointed in you, Tarago,” I say in a bitter voice as I drape a towel around my body.
He steps out of the shower and strips off his wet clothes.
My desire to hurt, after being hurt, peaks.
“That is what I liked about Ashwin – in spite of his cheating ways, he protected me, cared for me, put me first.”
With his eyes on me, Tarago wraps a towel around his waist, his jaw now set.
“He knew how to be a man. He knew how to be a man to his woman. It came naturally to him. That is why I will always love him.”
He runs his fingers slowly through his hair, his eyes becoming darker by the moment.
My look is defiant and I’m no longer crying. I want to maim right now, destroy and hurt as much as I am hurting, so I hurtle ahead.
“Even though he belongs to someone else, I still want him, and I will always want him. Anyone else …”
He wags his finger at me, his face darkening.
“…will be my second choice in life.”
His hurt and anger energizes me.
