EPISODE 43
You don’t have to let him in, just try to tolerate him and let the rudeness go, I mean treat him like your friends; you do not detest them as you do to Nectar, probably because you fell in love with him without knowing it. Mom is sounding weird now.
No mom, I know am not in love, maybe because he loves me rather, I struggled to say. I hate people declaring their feelings for me mom, you will figure it out but Mom how do you it.
I mean you can see Dad doesn’t love you but you are still here, whatever happened to your Dad and me, I don’t want that to affect you Kate, already I can see that getting into your head Kate.
I want you to enjoy your marriage, so talk about it with him, thank you mom, but I need to get going now.
Gentle man, are you not coming home tonight, I spoke to him calmly over the phone. He sounded surprised, as I have never called him since we got married.
Kate, are you okay! Do you need help? Nectar asked inquisitively. No, I came home and wanted us to talk about something but you were not around. Moreover, it is getting late too! Kate managed to just close my eyes and speak.
Kate are you worried about me! Nectar asked. “What a stupid question to ask, my mouth may run so wild, my heart so hardened but my brain still works perfectly”. I care with my mind. I was thinking aloud again, when I realized he was still waiting for my answer.
What if I am worried about you! Kate said finally, feeling a strange coldness suddenly coming over her. Well I don’t think that is a problem, besides probably you have not noticed I have been working late nights lately. Nectar said annoying me.
I just want to know if you are coming home soon, I replied calmly. Am not sure, but I will try? Is Matilda there with you? He said and I felt disappointed.
She is not back either, okay give me thirty minutes. I will be there soon, he said and I hanged up. I kept walking from one corner to another, and then my phone rang.
Katie am not coming home tonight. I got one hairy dude. Matts so it’s you, get a life, I am here waiting for your brother, I planned on telling him about the children this evening.
Really, am coming home, wait for me. Matts said so excited. I thought you said something about s-x and hairy dude tonight. Come on, I won’t miss your drama for anything in this world, S-x can wait. She said so bratty.
But Matts, am really scared! What about Katie. I don’t know but what if he hurts me. Oh commom, nectar wouldn’t dare lay a hand on a woman twice.
But Matts a revelation like this can make people do unimaginable things. Kate said with so much worry in her voice. Katie please relax, then wait for me, so we tell him together. No Matts, this is my own cross to carry, besides am already a meat whether I tell him or not.
Just then, I heard nectars car pull in the compound. Fear gripped me and instantly I started sweating profusely.
The coldness earlier has vanished. My brain I felt was overheating due to the many ideas popping up as to how to start the conversation about his children.
I did not understand why am afraid of letting him know the truth. It is not like we can call what we have marriage, we are practically leaving like friends. Now my mind is coming back to it’s rude state again.
Am sure, it’s just my hormones or i am still scared he might hurt me, by the time he entered I was on the floor, I woke up with feeling a bump to my head.
What happened I asked him? You collapsed. Do you feel pains anywhere, nectar asked. No just a headache. That will be over soon, once you eat and take your medicines.
And you need to start seeing that doctor we talked about, I mean today Kate! Nectar said stressing the his voice.
I just responded okay, finally you are awake matts said, your food is here. What happened Katie, were you able to do the stuffs we talked about? I shoved my eyes at nectar.
Nectar, can you excuse us for a minute. Matts said! Really, he said and Matts frowned. What happened Katie; I should be asking you that Matts.
I woke up here, I just remember your brother pulling into the compound and that was it. I also saw nectar attending to you when I got home.
He has not told me anything Katie. I think I can’t do it Matts. Why not Katie, you are stronger than you think. If I know my brother, so well he will forgive you.
I think I need time, to adjust to his likeness to me first, and then we can take it from there. Kate suggested. Okay, take your time; have you talked to that friend yet, Matts asked! Drake? No, I will soon, I replied honestly.
“I hate men who love me, and am not about to lose a friend because he loves me”.
Are you girls decent, should I come in? Nectar stop fooling around, this is your room, matts said looking through the door. Kate you have not touched your food that much, has Matilda added too much salt to the Oats, he asked trying to make a joke.
Huh nectar, she is fine. I looked on while brother and sister gave each other their weird looks. I need to give you some injections Kate.
My eyes popped out, and met with that of Matts. Emmm, I think I don’t need injections, I prefer the tablets. I was scared of going all nude in front of this man when I really wish I had. “I hit my head with my palm, trying to reset it”. Of late, it spews out unimaginable feelings. That’s just my hormones I reassured my mind.
Kate, you need this injection , he tried to convince. Nectar I think what your wife is referring to is can you give that injection anywhere aside her bums.
Ooh that, yeah the shoulders. He said with a relief on his face. I was surprised how Matts knew what my problem was.
Right there done, you can have some rest now, and he walked out. Matts how did you know? I know when you are acting weird you have something up your sleeves.
You two have not done it yet. I cant believe matts is asking me that right now. What? S-x? Nope! He has seen you naked before! She further asked. Yeah when I was drunk, I have no memories though, am pregnant from that now.
Just one shot and you are pregnant with twins, what will happen to two shots, you will give us a football team. Matts teased and we both laughed.
********
Kate you wanted to speak to me, nectar asked. How could he be asking that now when I was thinking he forgot? I said silently, it has been two days since the incident.
It’s fine, I found what I wanted, and it did not look like you were looking for something when you called, he tried to challenge.
Please I said its fine, I nearly yelled. Calm down do not work up yourself up, Nectar tried to convince me he wasn’t bothered. By the way I hope I am fit enough to work tomorrow, I asked.
Are you sure you can handle it, am not weak gentle man, your secretary can handle that for you. Nectar chipped in. You know am trying so hard to talk to you now and tolerate the anger that is burning in me. I said with a warning eye.
I can see that Kate, but I just want the best for you and the children. Forgive me if am over stepping my bounds. He was about to leave when I just had to say something again.
Am sorry, it came out the wrong way. I will try to slow down and cut on the working hours provided you pay my secretary her overtime. I feigned a smile. He just gave me some weird look and walked out like a child.
*********
Matts would you accompany me drakes place. Sure why not. What are you doing here; he struggled and stumbled to walk.
Drake have you been drinking, what is wrong with you. Kate inquired. Bring that bottle, do you want to drink yourself to death, I asked.
What do you care Kate, you decided to leave me for that good for nothing sick man? Hey watch your mouth; you can’t talk about my brother that way. Matts interjected. Ooh, you are the b---h sister who broke a poor girl completely.
Drake keep quiet, I yelled. Matts lets go, am sure when he finishes drinking himself to waste he would come around. I banged the door in his face and we drove off. Sorry about my friend out there.
That is fine, he is just a gentle man in love, and I would always be that b---h who slept with her best friends fiancé. Matts said as if the reality is now dawning on her.
Kate just glared and she drove on in silence, and keeping using different routes, which does not lead to home in anyway.
Matts, where are we going, Keep your head down and hold still. By the time I realized she took a very drastic turn on a busy road swerving a gunshot.
What was that? I yelled almost running out of breathe. Look into the side mirror they are still following us. Matts managed to say after we escaped that gunshot. I sensed someone was tailing us since we left drakes end, she finally spoke up when we managed to lose them and drove somehow home.
You are back. I cooked! Nectar greeted with a grin. Am not hungry, I said to his question and walked out on both brother and sister.
I heard a knock on my door, and nectar came in. Someone left this in the mail for you. What is it? He passed an envelope to me.
And I heard you were attacked earlier, I called your Dad. Huh, what for? You think my dad gives a d--n about what happened to me. Grow up! I said so calmly.
But I just thought, he has the connections with the cops to look into what kind of danger you are in. He said naively. Good Luck with my dad then.
I quickly took the envelope from him and tore it open because the handwriting on it looked familiar, then the contents itself confirmed my deepest fear.
I just tore it apart, and looked away when our gazes met, are you okay Kate. Why do you ask, do I look like am dying. I said regrettably.
Yes, you tore that envelope apart as if you have just seen a ghost, sorry if I intruded again, was just trying to help. When I thought we were finally at a good place in this marriage, Nectar said playing on my conscience and walked away sadly.
Who brought this letter? I rushed down to matt’s room.
What next?
