Kate peeped in. Nectar quickly jumped to his feet when he heard the door open.
Food is ready, you can come down now. Kate said and walked away quietly.
Kate you look unkempt. Have you been crying? Jane who hasn’t been around since morning asked and everyone ignored.
She turned to nectar who seemed not to be enjoying his food, then to Matts who was watching the two couples sternly.
Kate can we talk after lunch. Jane asked. Sure Grams. Will find you first before you do.
Catherine, thank you so much. Wilson said with smiles. He raised himself off the bed walking unclad to the bathroom.
Wilson you don’t need to thank me when I’m supposed to be your wife. He paused for a while to process what she just said.
He stood in the shower for quite some time. Wilson stood in front of the bathroom door for a while with a towel wrapped around his waist whiles eavesdropping on Catherine’s conversation.
Kate I’m not sure I want to discuss Jane with you right now. I’m in a good place with your Dad now and I don’t want him snapping again.
Mom what did you do this time. You finally succumbed to his touch so you want to sideline me right. Kate asked her mom with sadness on the other side of the call.
She convinced herself she wasn’t really bothered about what happened between her and nectar earlier but somewhere within she was shattered but she must hold on for her Kids. She murmured.
What did you say Kate, Catherine asked when she heard her murmuring?
Then Wilson’s shadow distracted her. Kate, let me call you back when I’m done here.
Is that Ka…te, he stammered. Catherine nodded her head, raising herself from the duvet exposing the full view of her naked body. Can I speak with her, Wilson finally found the courage to ask?
Catherine surprised and with her shaky hands quickly dropped the phone in his hands forgetting to tell Kate her Dad was going to speak next.
Mom, what do you see in this man! I mean he practically takes you by force. No sane man would do that. She said and heard his husky voice.
It’s your Dad Kate, he said almost choking on the dad part. And sorry your mom didn’t tell you I would be answering next.
Please I would like you to come over for dinner sometime soon.
We need to talk, Wilson said with closed eyes almost expecting the usual Kate to rant about how he is a bad father.
Kate took the phone off her ear, looked around surprised.
Dad, you just said please! She managed to say. Yeah kind of, He replied.
What did mom do to you now? Are you sure you are my dad?
Kate, I just want us to have a father to daughter talk, for the first time. Can you grant me that? Wilson said with courage now.
Kate glanced at the phone for a while and quickly hanged up.
She rushed upstairs and dropped herself gently on the bed, then Nectar came out of the shower.
She hanged up Catherine. Is it too late to make all these right? Wilson asked Catherine who pulled the sheets to cover her unclad body while pushing herself towards Wilson sited at the edge of the bed.
She made to hold him but he pulled away. Catherine don’t get any ideas yet. We just had s-x, that is what it is, no strings attached.
But Wilson the difference this time is you asked and it meant a lot to me.
Since I came into your life, you made an honorable woman out of me today. And if today is the last time you’d ever respect me as a woman, then I’m fine. At least I know where I stand with you. Catherine said softly while dressing up to leave.
Please wait, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it that way Catherine. I don’t deserve whatever you feel for me right now. Wilson said holding her back.
Wilson I don’t expect you to feel anything for me, I understand you. You are still hang on to Claudia. The more reason why I locked up whatever feelings I developed for the past 19 years.
You probably didn’t notice I shy away from you anytime you force yourself on me, unlike the few years when I had to cry.
She walked out of the room after fixing her attire and rushed down the stairs.
Kate thank you for lunch and what should we do about our situation because…… Nectar was about to say and Kate interrupted.
Nectar can we not keep hurting each other already, you said whatever you needed to say and I understand I opened the door to whatever sexual drive you can’t control or obsession you have for another woman aside your wife. For now, I’m not healthy to talk about it anymore.
Kate don’t do this to us, what I did doesn’t make my love for you any less, Nectar said still drying himself with the towel in his hands.
At least let me know where I stand with you because I don’t know what I would do if I lost you to another man.
Really Nectar, unlike you I’m not sure I would be able to defile my home no matter how pissed off I am at life.
The most annoying part is I have to live with this scar forever. This dirt I can’t wash away, nectar you have hurt me so bad.
Yet another man has succeeded in breaking a heart which was already healing and warming up to the same man who has hurt her now.
Nectar walked slowly to the wall and leaned against it, staring at her wife struggling with her blouse, obviously too tight.
He wondered where she was going to but he knows better not to ask, already he is having a hard time handling his mess.
He walked closer to Kate, fidgeted with his hands for a while. Let me help you fit into that, if you don’t mind. He said with his wavering hands.
Kate turned around, glared at him for a while and turned around. You can go ahead; I’m running late for my mom’s place.
Nectar who was walking away earlier, took a step back. While zipping her up, he couldn’t stop appreciating her body and how he could hurt this woman with just the perfect one.
There was silence for a while, they were obviously having a moment until Kate broke the silence.
So Dad wants to see me soon for what I’m not sure of yet, so don’t ask me why nectar. Kate said walking away from him to locate her sandals.
You said soon but why are you going now. Nectar said trying to make a conversation.
Whatever he has to say must be important for my Dad to acknowledge me as her daughter, so I better get it done today so he wouldn’t get an excuse to change his mind.
Do you have a problem with that nectar? ‘Kate asked looking in his direction’.
No, I wanted to spend the day with you alone, but that’s fine I can come with you then. He said watching her reaction.
Nectar you don’t need to follow me to my mom’s she said smiling that instant.
Yes, I know, but Sylvester called while you went to get lunch, your test results are not looking good so we should take care right now to avoid any bad news.
Kate walked away ignoring him. How is he being so nice and caring all of a sudden when he obviously has wronged me.
She was about to talk but no words came out, but nectar couldn’t stop talking.
Knowing your Dad, I can’t take that chance. He said and sat beside my driving wheel after snatching the key from my bag earlier.
You are stubborn Nectar. Kate said and sat quietly in the car.
Getting to the main house, they heard voices. It became clearer when they got to the entrance.
Kate recognized that as her dad’s. Annoying man, always shouting. She hissed and continued to the room.
She quickly barged in and rushed upstairs, take it easy Kate, you might fall.
Nectar advised. Kate saw nectar rushing after her, struggling with her bag.
“Then she paused after her mom’s revelation”.
Am sorry you wish Claudia’s baby with you lived, Wilson she did not make it. Kate lived! Accept it. I have waited for far too long for you to accept her but you are so heartless. Catherine said amidst tears.
Catherine who rushed in to the kitchen earlier came back upstairs and Wilson just had to get on her nerves again. She got furious and blamed herself for falling in love with him when he pledged not to.
What have I done to you? Was it my fault I had to be a surrogate for your wife. Claudia wanted it that way, and I respected her a lot. I was naive focusing on the better life she promised me after birth.
Had I known it would have to take me been raped several times to bore a child, I would have gone back to my street.
Answer me Wilson. I only agreed to carry a child for you because I owe your wife, a decision I came to regret.
Claudia had no problem with me sleeping with you on several occasions just to make a baby when the artificial insemination failed on countless occasions. But you could only force me. Catherine sniffed in between her words.
Not even after Claudia found out she was finally going to have her own child after just two months of announcing my pregnancy.
She treated me right; you think she made us sign that contract with her dying breath just for you to ignore me for 27 good years.
I just gave myself out to you a while ago, you said thank you and I thought finally you have realized I learned to love you. You couldn’t even wait for a day to pass before rubbing it in my face.
You know how disgusting I look at myself in the mirror anytime you jerk off and run back to your wife? But it came to a time I always look past that.
Answer me Wilson, Catherine yelled out.
“I see the smile on your face anytime you drag on your Pajamas”. I remember those days perfectly.
Claudia pleads with me every time to bear with her. I did all this for her because she was the only one who never looked down on me like your mother did and your Dad of blessed memory.
Do you know what even killed your Dad? Of course you have no idea, whatever I saw that day made your mom to hate me so much. Catherine confessed.
Somehow Wilson’s eyes nearly popped out of its sockets when Catherine mentioned that.
Claudia was there for me even when she knew I could take over her matrimonial home if I so want to but she was desperate, your mom constantly asking for a grandchild all the time was putting a lot of strain on her already broken heart.
Look woman, you think I wanted to sleep with you. I fake that smile for the sake of my wife. Why do you think I take you forcefully? Wilson blurted out.
She gave me her kidney, even though she knew her health was not the best at that time. I owe her a lot, so don’t stand there and tell me you love her more than I do. Wilson finished saying with a loud tone.
I’m sure thats the best way to defend your actions, Catherine said rather calmly.
Wilson, Claudia married us with her last breath, but you never acknowledged my presence in this house.
I allow it to fade away, thinking I had no room for loving you in the first place, but now it’s different. Wilson i feel horrible thinking I could still love you in the midst of all these pains.
“All I asked for is treat your daughter right! Mum said with sadness in her voice.”
You could not even ask for a proper punishment for the sake of your daughter’s torture.
I know you asked for a lawyer for Mandy, so he comes back destroying Kate’s life, he just helped the poor guy die slowly.
Is that the honorable thing you claim you have done. Mom couldn’t control her temper. Kate could feel it.
You are so naïve woman, I asked for his release because unlike you I have a conscience to know framing a man for murder isn’t the right way to go. I may be many things, but that certainly will destroy my family’s reputation.
So instead of you whining and defending your acts, be grateful to your son in law because Mandy could have pressed charges but he didn’t. I have no doubt he loved your daughter in his own small way. Wilson said sternly.
Kate flashed an accusing eye towards nectar, who only murmured am sorry, for a while it seemed like the noise had subsided. As they were about to continue upstairs, the voices started again.
This is an innocent child, who just asks for a father’s love, nothing more. You could have just pretended you loved her, am sure she would have appreciated that.
I came to you for help; I could not wait around and watch my daughter been hurt by men.
I pleaded with you to use your influence to get them out of her life but you refused.
What did you ask for in return? You asked for my body. I had no problem with that but you chose to rape me in my most vulnerable state. What kind of man does that?
I can’t believe I just slept with you Wilson? Gosh, and you had the guts to call me a s--t when I asked what this means for us. She snarled.
Now I have nothing to lose, I can go to the cops with that video from the house cleaner , am sure Kate would love to see you behind bars.
You know what that means. You can’t bribe me to stay again this time and yet still treat me anyhow.
I have endured enough. As you always said, Kate is mine alone.
I suffered nine months alone. You parade yourself with your wife, leaving another pregnant concubine helpless.
What do I care, you only rape me, so I really didn’t care that much when I was been ignored.
Catherine realized Wilson barely said a word, but she kept pushing, somehow she wanted him to apologize and hug her already.
If you hadn’t gotten pregnant am sure Claudia wouldn’t have risked her life. Wilson said angrily but with regrets.
You killed your wife yourself. You always forget I called you first when I was in labor and you told me to suit myself.
If you had listened to Claudia’s plea when she called later, she wouldn’t have worried so much and drive into a trailer that night.
You left two pregnant women home alone at night, doing God knows what out of town.
Even after she got pregnant, she still accepted my child as her own.
Your selfish desires turned you against your daughter. I hope you live to tell her your story some day because am done taking care of your needs.
And if you don’t tell Kate you tried to force yourself on her, I will do that for you. Catherine said throwing things out of her wardrobe.
I will leave you to your conscience to judge you.
Nectar practically was holding me down on the floor on the last stairs where I sat in tears listening to my parents rattle their secrets out.
‘I was grateful he tagged along’. Kate looked up at him and murmured thank you.
Nectar smiled and nodded.
How could a man, treat a woman that way? She is my mom. Somehow, Kate always felt she was more than a stepmom.
That bond, that affection for a stepdaughter was just deceiving. She has suffered enough.
As what looked like my Dad got his dose of his own medicine, I managed to get up and bumped into mom dragging her luggage out.
She saw the tears in my eyes and hugged me so tight.
Mom Kate cried. Yes, my dear, how long have you been here. Catherine asked surprised.
Long enough to know I am yours alone. Kate replied sobbing.
You heard everything, she asked and Kate nodded. But those things doesn’t matter to me now.
You matter and I matter. Kate who couldn’t stop sharing tears said and looked at nectar who she had no idea followed her in.
I looked up and saw my Dad with his hands in his pockets facing the window obviously shy and surprisingly not so bitter. He looked so calm and remorseful.
He turned around I can explain Kate, I just rolled my eyes and focused on my mom who was in so much pain and tears.
I’m sorry, I didnt want you to find out this way Kate..
