EPISODE 44
Careful you don’t fall. I heard nectar say and I just ignored him. Matts, are you sure Mandy is locked up, I asked immediately I entered her room.
Yes, I made sure he has. Why? Are you thinking he was the one who attacked us earlier? Matts asked with a curious grin on. I just received a letter from him. Kate managed to say through her fears. What? How? Where is it? Matts was lost as to what to ask.
I destroyed it. Kate replied. What did the letter say? Matts asked giving me the impression she is hiding something from me. I could not finish reading. ”I just read the greetings.” “Hope to see you soon, then I tore it up.”
Wait here let me check out. Matts brought out her phone, trying to make some calls. I thought to myself what she is up to again.
He had ten years’ jail time for second-degree murder. He should still be in by now right. Kate further asked when Matts seems to be avoiding the topic.
Katie, it is okay to be scared. He will not hurt you, am here for you. Matts, thank you but what do we do now? I managed to say while sitting on Matt’s bed with my face in my palms.
When? How? I heard Matts asking while looking back a few times towards my direction. Let me know when you find out. Don’t give me that crap; she flared up in between her calls.
A month and you never bothered to tell me about it, you know I have a personal interest in this case. Just be quiet, what do I s-x you for in the first place. It is over just get rid of my number. Matts angrily hanged up looking in my direction weirdly.
It looks like whoever you were speaking to just gave you the worse news. What is going on Matts? It sounded like that was about Mandy.
Don’t worry your head. She finally said while moving towards me. Matts it didn’t look like things are fine between you and the man whose bed you keep gracing to keep a certain secret.
I can handle what it is. I replied even though I know my stand already. Katie, relax! Mandy has been out for a month now, and he never bothered to tell me about it. She finally said, that gave me a bit of relief.
“At least he may not try anything funny yet, since obviously he wouldn’t want to go against probation laws.” I kept thinking to myself again. Then I felt Matt’s hands waking me out of my reverie.
Are you going to tell me who the HE is? Kate asked Matts. Just a booty call, friend in the Judges’ office. Well that is over now. Can we get dinner ready? Your husband might be hungry by now. Matts grinned.
I hope you are not planning to throw me under the bus again Matts. Kate said and paused. No, I just want us to forget that useless Mandy. She said.
You know when it comes down to it I might not be able to Matts. Now let me hear why he is out before his time.
Katie I don’t have all the details, but I promise I will find out from work tomorrow. That is not good enough; you know I can feel you are lying to me right. Kate said showing her displeasure.
Yes, I know, but the less you know, the better for your children. Matts said stressing her voice. I will have to find out then. I replied.
“Are you women okay inside? You have been in there for ages now, whispering. Nectar came knocking. We both stormed out.”
Kate are you okay, you look worried. Matts tell your brother to mind his own business. God knows am trying my best to accommodate him in my life, he should not add to my troubles right now. Katie, he is your husband. Standing right behind you. Tell him that yourself. Kate hissed and left.
I went upstairs, knowing very well nectar was following me. I just laid on my bed to relax my already pounding head, asking myself weird questions. Why is Mandy’s sudden appearance giving me this kind of feeling?
Katie has he contacted you again? Matts asked after two weeks. He dare not, I will skin him alive. Really, Katie, I thought two weeks ago you were professing your undying love for him. Matts teased.
Matts I know I might break down with the attractions falling back in place, but I might still want to kill him. Just be careful you don’t make my brother into another widower. I just gave her a tap on her thighs to get her mind back to better things.
********
I will pay you the rest of the money, when you get the job done. The disguised woman at the entrance of St. Joseph Hospital said over the phone to the other caller.
Make sure you get him alone. Don’t screw this up for me like you always do. The man who seems to be in charge said over the phone and hanged up.
Doctor Glover, you were saying. I was asking how far you are. Six weeks, I think. The lady who walked into Nectars office that morning replied.
Then lets check it out, but wait here for me. Let me get a nurse to take you to the lab. Nectar walked out leaving his morning coffee he forgot to take earlier. He walked back in and the pregnant woman who came for a check up was nowhere to be found.
Dr Glover, I saw her leaving the premises in a hurry a while ago. One of the nurses said. Nectar sighed and sat in his chair while he gulped down his coffee.
******
Miss Santa, there is one Mr. Bradley here to see you about the contract. Stacy said through the intercom. Which contract, from brownies ltd Miss. He said he called you earlier. Not sure, I have an idea, but let him up.
Come in, I heard a knock on the door. I just glued myself to my chair when I saw the image in front of me. What are you doing here? Out of here, I yelled on top of my voice. Babes I can explain, Mandy said. Explain why you slept with my best friend or maybe why you killed an innocent girl.
I did not cheat on you with Matts; neither did I kill an innocent girl. I am no murderer. Get lost before I commit my own murder. Kate replied.
“I pressed the intercom. Within a twinkle of an eye, they barged in”. Take him out; they kept dragging him out of the door, while he kept saying something on a loud tone.
I was not sure what I heard, but something about my dad. What has this man done? He is everywhere. Kate wondered to herself. I rushed home because I can’t handle another encounter with Mandela. I barely handle my emotions back in there.
Whether she should run into his arms or just throw him out, was a tough decision for her a while ago. Kate was glad she chose the latter.
“Did he say his name is not really Mandela? Kate was still talking to herself”. Just then, my phone beeped. If you don’t believe me, ask Matts. Am sure she has not told you everything.
Just ask her what my lawyer told her, and what your Dad was doing with my prison officer. Mandy’s text read on my phone. I just melted at once. Matts again? Kate approach this with much care. I told myself silently.
*******
Drake what do you want. I just want to apologize for my behavior the last time. Am listening, I said with a frown while holding my phone with both hands on my ear and strolling in my room, while nectar was undressing himself by the mirror.
What is this man doing? Undressing in front of me is unacceptable. I tried not to watch. Drake let me call you back. He did not hesitate saying I love you. Kate hanged up without a reply.
Hey you, what do you think you are doing. Nectar tried looking back, am talking to you gentle man. What does it look like? I thought we agreed this here would not happen in each other’s presence. Kate said confronting nectar.
Look Kate am tired of your nagging and rude attitude. Am really trying here you know. Please let me be, you can watch or you walk out. He yelled on top of his voice while trying to be calm.
He slummed the washroom door on my face and I just stood there like a toasted bread. Burned with my own fire. I tried going in there to give him my peace of mind but he locked it up.
What is happening to him, he has never reacted to me that way before. And he has been in that bathtub close to two hours. Is he all right in there? Should I call him out? I made up my mind to call Matts to come check on him but I remembered she was out of town.
“Just that moment he came out of the tub unclad and spilling water all over the floor”. I popped up my eyes, as if this is the first time of setting my eyes on a man’s “hometown” as huge as nectars. Of course, Mandela I thought had the cutest and big “hometown” but nectar’s is something else. Kate focus, I slapped my cheeks.
I could not take my eyes off, until I heard a thud. Nectar threw himself on the bed and covered himself with the duvet like a kid who is suffering from a nervous breakdown. I took my eyes off and walked out, Matts has travelled for a case out of town.
Is Mandy all right at all. What makes him think I will accept that crap from him? He is so much in trouble now. What does my dad have to do with all this? I realized I was just so not myself, asking questions I already have answers to.
What next?
