Oscar Pistorius' latest trial on Thursday revealed murdered girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp as somebody who not just wanted to be loved but also a girl who was afraid of the former Olympian.
"I'm scared of you sometimes and how you snap at me and how you react to me," Reeva Steenkamp told the man known as "Blade Runner" through WhatsApp messaging service.
Police said the message was prompted when Oscar Pistorius caused a ruckus after accusing her of flirting with another man, weeks after he shot her.
Francois Moller, cellphone expert for the police, read the messages in court during Oscar Pistorius' trial and he said that 9 in 10 of those texts "were loving," according to the AFP report.
In another text message sent to Oscar Pistorius just a week before she was shot:
"I can't be attacked by outsiders for dating you and be attacked by you - the one person I deserve protection from," Reeva Steenkamp.
According to the post-mortem report, the 29-year-old model died from the lone bullet to the brain when Oscar Pistorius shot her around 3 a.m. Three other bullets were lodged on the bathroom wall, another hit her on the thigh and another on the shoulder.
"You make me happy 90 per cent of the time and I think we are amazing together, but I'm not some other bitch not trying to kill your vibe," she told him in another text message.
"I just want to love and be loved. Be happy and make someone SO happy. Maybe we can't do that for each other. Cos right now I know u aren't happy and I am certainly very unhappy and sad," Reeva Steenkamp added.
The police captain Francois Moller said they were able to extract about "35,000 pages worth of messages" from the phone of Reeva Steenkamp, according to BBC.
Authorities are now trying to contact Apple to gain access to the Olympian's messages after it was revealed in Oscar Pistorius' trial that he forgot the password in his iPhone.
