I didn’t know what to do, was this what matt was referring to. I put on the bedside light; I then shook nectar so hard. “Kate stop thinking about his shirtless body”, “Kate rebuked her mind”. How could I be thinking of that now, when I should call for help.
“He was reluctant or probably couldn’t feel my hands all over him”. It took ten minutes for the seizure to stop. I was so scared in my thoughts. Finally, I was jolted out of my worry mind when he made a hiss sound. “Kate sighed, nectar hasn’t opened his eyes but checking his pulse, he could still breathe.”
The next day, I wasn’t able to ask him about what happened, he just kept to himself, as if he had no memories of that, the attack continued for the next three days.
“Kate was beginning to get fed up with the noise, and could not figure out how to help nectar.” Matts, please can you help, it’s your brother. I think am tired of his mumbling, can you come over. Kate found herself needing matts help over the phone.
I need to get her back. She has to know the truth. I have learnt to fall in love with her.
She thinks am the bad one at the head of all this. Yes, I might have been a flirt and a cheat but I came to fall in love with her.
It was all a game at first, but my heart beats for her anytime she was around and I need to play along. I was a player. There were so many of the girls flocking on me back then.
Her kindness, despite the horrible way I treated her, her immense love changed me. I wanted to be a better person for her. Just when I was about to truly, tell her about it and declare my true feelings, hoping she forgives me.
The devil in disguise whisked me away to jail. Now am back. I have to claim my love. She has to listen to me. I have never for once forgotten her face while behind bars.
He glanced at the tinny frame in his hands with an image in it. This is what kept me going. For all the treatments, I suffered for a crime I did not commit. Mandela kept pondering over his past life with Kate.
Sis what are you doing here this early. Nectar was surprised to see Matts over at our end. Did mum send you, No sai…. Nectar, Matts tried to get his name right.
I called for her, Kate carefully replied. Okay is there a problem, Nectar asked inquisitively. Nectar, women’s stuffs. Can you stay out of it please? Katie finally said getting worked out.
Am going out then, you ladies have a nice day, nectar finally walked out and we both heaved a sigh of relief. Katie how serious is it, does he have any memory of the previous nights. Am not so sure. You did not ask him.
We don’t talk, Kate replied Matts question. Matts expression changed as she tried to mouth something but kept her mouth shut, which I was grateful for.
Look am not about to discuss my marriage with you, I called you here to see to your sick brother. You are welcome to stay as long as you can.
Kate said trying to sound plain and angry. Kate, why are you so bitter, is it that bad. What happened to you. Matts found herself asking Kate questions.
I cannot begin to say I know how to fix what was broken, am not asking you to start loving again, but the way I see it, you both are perfect for each other; you need to heal each other in your own small way.
Try to accommodate him. Yes, he is sick but you can make it work. I know you so well Kate and am glad you married him. Matts tried advising her friend trying to escape his full gaze.
You are glad I married the sickness in your family right, Kate said sarcastically. Come off it, Katie. Yes, we are glad he finally wants to settle down again. I was the happiest when I found out it was you. Kate re adjusted herself in the couch after matts comments which shows she was restless.
We had our own issues, which did not stop me for approving of you Katie. Cut me some slack here, you both need each other. He is a good man Katie; just give him the benefit of the doubt. Matts keep playing the good sister trick with me.
Why should I do that? Kate retorted back to Matts, whose gaze is now fully on her.
Because you are carrying his children, If anything you help the father of your children recover and he will be there for him. Your children will equally need him someday. Matts said asking me with her eyes to trust her.
I believe you wanted the same experience yourself from your dad, but you never had. Do not deny your children that privilege to have a sane father. Do not bring my father into this Matts, but Katie you know am right. “Yes Matts is right, I told myself inwardly.”
If you were carrying another man’s children, I would gladly help with the divorce. Since nectar told me, you did not want to marry him or neither have anything to do with him, i only thought of him getting a woman who will father his children.
Then you agreed and I thought of divorce but he would not agree to it, he said he could endure your attitudes. Matts keep talking too much already; I tried signaling her with my eyes.
Now it is different, children are involved. Matts spoke her final words. So the best way you can help is, stuck I myself in this marriage, I asked her.
Besides my heart was shattered in pieces by my best friend. Nothing compared to what he is suffering from. If you have been dealing with this for 7years and he has still not recovered what makes you think, he will now. I was now in control of asking Matts my own questions.
Katie I believe he just needs someone to be there for him, someone to hold, someone probably to share his fears with and at the look of things you equally need that someone too . Matts said sensibly. I agreed she was right.
“However, was I ready to move on, when somehow my heart still yearns for he who broke it in the first place.”
See! it’s time to get over Mandy, I don’t want to keep bringing his name up, but its high time you mention his name and not feel like you want to puke or droll all over him again as you are trying to do right now. You have to kill whatever force of attraction it is Katie. “Matts talks as if it is that easy”. I thought to myself!
I did you a favor, if not by now, you would have married or be carrying that b-----d’s children and you would have really regretted it. Then you visit him at county with his children. Matts said vehemently and now pissing me off.
Is that what you wish for yourself? She asked.
What do you mean by county? Mandy is in prison; I did not tell you every part of that woman’s story, matts continued.
However, the point is he got jail time after that innocent girl died when Mandy took her for an abortion of his child, which the girl ended up at the morgue.
I was there, I helped in the process, could not stand watching him go scot free, and leaving the mother of that girl childless was not an option, she works for me in my office canteen. That is the best I could do.
I could not help but was amazed in tears how far this woman here would go for me, she is one d--n good lawyer, owns her own practice and does know what she wants.
Just then, nectar walked in, are you women gossiping about me. I just eyed him to the right; he is irritating me now with that smile on his face.
You know that how, Matts asked! My wife is in a good mood for once, nectar pointed out with a grin on his face. I pretended I did not hear that, “so this gentle man did not see me rolling my eyes earlier”. Kate thought!
“He can still see the good in me after all these attitudes, what kind of a man is he”. “Has the death of his screwed up his brain, because a man should flare up sometimes, give corrections when necessary”.
Nectar obviously you have not been doing your work well, so am here to make sure you do that. Matts teased his brother.
Oh really, Kate tell her am the best husband. I looked at Matts and she was beckoning on me to respond. Fighting the urge to just give in or hold on, i took a deep breath and all that came from my mouth is am hungry. Who cares for lunch, tell me how I can help Katie, she asked.
