Obsessed with Me
by Eve Rabi
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.
Tarago is an imposing figure – around six-foot-four, dark blonde beard, blonde unruly hair that falls on broad shoulders, which blocks the entrance to our work station. That leather jacket he’s wearing makes him look like a wrestler or rugby player – so not my type. (My type is more Tom Cruise and definitely no beard.)
Word has it that he has German and Irish ancestry, hence the cobalt eyes, blonde hair, and the penchant for booze and partying. He’s supposed to be single but he’s always surrounded by bimbos.
Eric turns red in the face. “Eh, nee, Meneer Jakobus. No problem at all, Meneer.”
Tarago narrows his blue eyes at me. I look at the ground, intimidated by him.
Eric is so flustered and nervous, that, in spite of my nervousness, I decide to help him out.
“Mr. Jakobus, Sir,” I say in a voice a therapist would use on a nut job, “I am rather honored by your invitation, but I have a boyfriend, so I have to decline.”
Something like confusion flits in his eyes. “No problem!” he says in Afrikaans.
I exhale, as shoulders around me relax.
He turns to Sonja, his eyebrows raised.
Sonja thrusts out a bony hip, places an equally bony hand on it, cocks her head, and drops her voice. “I’m one hundred percent single and ready to mingle, Meneer Jakobus.”
With a smile, he sticks out his arm. She takes it.
“What’s your favorite drink?” he asks in Afrikaans.
He lets out a low chuckle.
Eric and I look at each other.
“See? No problem at all,” I say.
He doesn’t answer.
“Shouldn’t have done that,” he mutters as he walks away.
