EPISODE 42
Nectar you don’t like the food? Matts asked. Your wife cooked it for you, appreciate her and stop staring like someone who just saw a ghost. His sister cautioned further.
I just focused on my plate, but I could feel his gaze on me. Why do you keep staring, as if am stopping you from eating, Kate finally asked nectar?
Nothing Kate, he replied without a smile, we ate in silence, was this man thinking I cannot cook? Kate kept stealing glances and beaming inside, when all she wanted was a simple compliment for the food, as it was his first time cooking for him.
She was however disappointed, he didn’t get to finish all the meal. “Why was she suddenly softening up to him”, Kate thought aloud but couldn’t mouth it out.

OMG Matts you have not stopped this sleeping around with the so-called hairy men huh. Kate tried to remember their past. They both laughed, I cannot do without the handsome hairy men, Matt has replied.
What is funny, Kate asked! I found Matts smiling for a while. Katie you have not noticed you still remember details about me that we both just laughed at.
Then I realized we have been chatting since after dinner, like old times. Yeah, I think it is time I forgive you provided you will not do a silly thing like that next time.
Katie, just listen to me sometimes, I could be lying but what harm would it cause if you just try to find out things for yourself.
It is not as if I do not listen to you Matts, I felt you exaggerate too much, now that is over right! Matts asked. Yes, Kate replied not guessing her next question and you will give my brother a chance, No I cannot promise that matts. She rightly said quickly.
Take your time, Matts was about to continue her long speech, just then my phone rang. Drake! Is my baby sleeping already? He said with some weird tone, then Anthon spoke up, Kate Drake just got dumped, Miriam left her.
What I shouted? How! Why! I couldn’t find the right questions to ask because I met the girl Miriam, she doesn’t look like someone who would dump Drake soon. Because of you Kate, I finally heard James say.
What did I do! I was surprised they were claiming I had a hand in that. Do not be dumb woman; Drake has been in love with you like forever, am surprised you have not noticed. Anthon said.
No way, I found it amusing, Drake are you there, is that true! You love me, are you being real. I kept asking quickly. It seems he went off, James said. Have a good night; try to call him, both men said.
Katie what is it, who is in love with you, that was when I realized I was in deep thoughts. Katie are you okay! Matts asked this time with a loud tone. Yes, matts, it’s one of my friends, you saw him at the wedding.
Drake! I learnt he is in love with me. Mom said this sometime ago but I felt she was just exaggerating. Do you love him? Matts asked taking me off guard. Yes, I mean yeah we are friends, so definitely as a friend.
Well it seems he does more than that, if what you said about him leaving his girlfriend because of you, I think you should find time and talk to him; you know you are married right.
Matts couldn’t wait to remind me of my worst nightmare. Yeah, I have no plans of getting out for the sake of my children, I replied trying not to get offended.
Can I borrow my wife; nectars voice startled us both! Sure why not bro! I think I want to sleep now.
Matt’s gave me a peck, hey sis be careful, and that is my wife there, nectar said and his smile disappeared following my will you shut up gaze I dropped on him.
I know, it is just a harmless peck, they both laughed but I was deep in thoughts and asking myself what I should do. Kate can we talk, what about! You always have a way of ruining moments. Be on your own, I lashed out.
As if I saw tears in nectars eyes, I just had to say something, which I obviously don’t mean. I mean Matts is right, he is the father of my children.
Okay fine, am sorry I snap at you all the time but truth be told, you are too nice to me which I obviously don’t deserve.
Well maybe I deserve it but I cant tell what your intentions are. I finally managed to say and before he could reply I interrupted. What do you want to discuss?
He took a step back and forward, then back. Wanted to find out if we can start shopping for the children, he said happily. It is too early, father of the season, unless you do not think so. Kate chipped in.
If you say so, he was about to leave when Kate said to set the date while she tries to be available since she has to work next week throughout.
He just rushed towards me, at first I thought he was picking something up and then I felt his mouth on mine. I just heard myself saying stop it so loud and pushed him on the floor.
What was that all about, I said wondering why I was angry over a harmless kiss. Am sorry Kate. I was just excited. Nectar said annoying me more.
Look you had better start behaving like a grown up, as I have decided to get stuck with you in this marriage.
I walked pass him towards our room and I saw matts rushing to pick him up. Nectar are you okay, just give her some time, she will come around, Pregnancy hormones are also part of her stress. I heard Matts say calmly.
I woke up to the side of my bed empty, I careless but I was worried within me since I pushed him earlier. That was wrong Kate, “I keep hearing a voice struggling in my mid”.
I guess I never slept at all; I went downstairs and met him lying on the couch with his head on Matt’s. Then I heard the murmurings again, walking closer I saw matts pointing to a towel in water, I just handed it over to her, fear gripped me, and I thought the pushing triggered something.
Because the last time it happened, we had some intense argument. Matt’s did this happen because of the push. Nobody could ever tell what triggers it. Matts said with her avoiding my gaze.
What are you talking about, Katie he has no an idea he experiences this? He has no memories! You never told him. Why? I questioned Matts, stealing glances towards nectar still not responding to Matts touch.
Katie, we tried but since he has no memories of that, we just let it slide hoping it would stop someday, when is that someday, Matt’s he needs to know?
I agree, as he needs to know about his children. Matts is being sarcastic now. This is not the right time to discuss his children. He cannot know about his children when he is having some weird attack you all did not deem it fit to tell me about before I married him.
What if it is hereditary, I cannot have two children with a mental ishh, then help me Katie, let us try to make this marriage work.
I agree he needs help; I looked at the dejected body lying before me, he looks so innocent, what could have happened, was his first marriage that bad. I kept asking myself, until we retired to bed when the worse was over.
Gentle man good morning, you slept on the couch. May I know why? As if he was confused, he kept looking around.
“I just needed to try another approach, I may not be ready to succumb to whatever he feels for me but I can as well try. I advised myself”.
Looking for Matts, I asked, and then nectar nodded! She has a job remember. Oh, yes, he replied so lively.
Breakfast is on the table, which I did not hesitate to give out a smile to his surprise look. I need some sleep, which I had to fake just to avoid another talk with him.
Call me if you need anything, I was about to take a step forward when he grabbed my hand, he said sorry and dropped my hands quickly; Only God knows the surge that went through my body.
I quickly had to brush it aside, blaming it on the hormones. I want to apologize for yesterday; I should not have done that Kate. Knowing well you detest men who are in love with you.
Have you been checking up on me? I asked him. No Kate, I just happen to know you quiet well for these few months. He said making a face as if trying to remember something.
I was dumfounded, how he could read my thoughts vividly and I barely know what he thinks. He was walking away, gentle man, am sorry about yesterday, the fall and everything, Thanks, that is fine, I understand. He said all bubbly.
“How is this man so calm after that great fall”, I was thinking when my mum’s thoughts came to mind?
*********
Mum are you okay, please I want to come over. What is it baby? Mum I do not know how to handle this. Exactly what are you not able to handle? This marriage, these whole nectar attitudes. Mom he is so good to me but I can’t seem to see pass that, I am always angry at even the nicest things he does for me.
Am not like that with my guys, I don’t treat them rudely but for Nectar, I don’t know. My heart is so hardened anytime I see him.
I don’t know how to handle him; he keeps doing everything right, am too broken to see that and acknowledge his presence. I can’t be fixed mom. Kate keeps narrating for a whole ten minutes.
I was in my mom’s arms crying, which she constantly smooched my back slowly. Baby it is okay; you will figure it out soon. Take it easy, one-step at a time.
The best thing is to talk to him, sit him down. Tell him to give you some time. Probably you can start with the fact he is the father of your twins that might make things better.
Mom, am scared of letting someone in again, I know my dear. Mom said but my mind was roaming all over my decisions lately.
What next?
