Episode to the End
Someone is in a happy mood today, Matts said reaching for a hug. Matt’s you are hurting my back.
Sorry, how is that going Katie. Matts asked dropping Katie’s stuffs beside her bed.
Sly claimed I should be fine soon. Kate said smiling.
Doctor Sly, Huh. Matts said to tease and Kate found it amusing enough to wink.
Ready to go home to that child you call a husband or you would be going with your Mom.
Matts, you realize that’s your brother you just called a child right. Kate asked.
Yes I know very well I just referred to Saint as the child, I learnt that from you Katie.
Matts said standing up to locate something that caught her eye by Kate’s her bedside.
Katie, you got a parcel! Matts said.
Yea, I totally forgot, Sly brought it earlier. Kate replied.
Oh I see, Matts said with a happy tone.
At least someone is paying attention to you now. You deserve it Katie. And I totally would support you to leave that dumbass you call a husband.
He is just handsome with a brain but behaves like he isn’t the marriage type.
Matts, that’s my husband and your brother you keep insulting that way. I ignored, you at first but please can we stop it now. It’s different when I call him names, Kate said sternly.
Wow, are we going to fight over Saint now, Common Katie, use her head. The guy nearly killed you. Matts said.
But he saved me again, besides I can’t keep looking over my shoulders anytime my boys ask me where is Daddy. I remember doing that a lot.
Wilson was never around; I see him once a while but he never cared.
Your brother on the other hand was ready for this without even knowing the truth.
For that I would always be grateful. Any decision I make has nothing to do with how I feel, but what’s best for my boys.
Sleeping on that cold table, do you know who I kept cursing and wishing was there.
It’s funny but I watched Sly smile at me and all I could think about when I see his face was your shameless brother.
I had no idea, I could feel that way, Matts so let’s not talk about him anymore and Matts I never said I want to get back with him. Kate said knowing very well that she just lied again.
Katie, if you get back with Saint then you are doing that at your own risk, I won’t come nursing your wounds, and that’s the end of our friendship.
Matt’s don’t do this; you are adding to my problems now. Why are you so angry with him? For me I understand why I hate him now but you always had his back. What happened?
Katie, I guess people change and get tired too. I just got fed up with him treating women like they have no value.
Pearl lost the baby and any opportunity of ever getting pregnant again and all he could do was claim his heart is with you and have no time to babysit Pearl.
Were you not there when he was sleeping with her. When did he realize his heart is with you?
It doesn’t make sense to me right now.
That poor girl slept through the night all alone. We all admitted she was wrong but her situation nearly led to another murder.
Nectar wasn’t bothered for the past week. You find him sleeping on this chair, having his series of episodes or disturbing those little ones with his wicked grins.
But if you know what you are doing that’s fine, I love you but I would need to move out once you get back to that house again.
Matt’s said and finally opened the parcel left by Sly. He doesn’t even know how to apologize properly.
Arhh i was thinking it was Sly.
Matt’s, there’s nothing between Sly and I.
Who apologizes for this sort of mess with a travel ticket, I bet it’s only a man like your husband.
Matts said and handed the envelope over to Kate who just stared.
Okay Matts, you’ve won this argument, maybe I’m stupid to think of my kids in the middle of all these but please don’t end our friendship just like that.
Besides when I leave to another man, what guarantee do I have its going to end well Matts.
And he is your brother, I feel I came in between you two. Please fix it and I promise to let you give those weird names to my kids.
Haa! Someone is bribing me here; no way I’m going to fall for that lie Katie.
Please Matts! Think about it this way, Drake cheated on you with me…. I beg don’t bring my man into this. I don’t want to sleep tonight having nightmares about you and Drake.
Matts interrupted before Kate could work her humor magic.
So would you think about it, Kate murmured.
If I get to name those cute ones, then I would try. Matts said smiling.
Are they cute, do they have my nose and my eyes? Katie there is nothing interesting about your nose and eyes. Matts teased.
Just then the door opened slowly and nectar came in and quickly turned around to leave.
He was informed by Sly earlier Kate was asleep. He was just coming to watch her sleep and go back.
Matts who was facing the door since Kate has decided to face the other end watching the weather through the curtains called out to him before he could bounce back.
And how long would you keep running away from your mess Saint.
You had better get your a-s down here before I hit you in the face as your Dad did earlier.
He paused for a while and retracted his steps after a few seconds of finding it difficult to decide.
I would leave the two of you alone, Matts said and Kate pleaded with her eyes.
Katie it’s your mess too, face it. I need to meet Drake about an hour ago but I’m still here.
Do you plan to stand the whole day? Kate suddenly asked nectar who was standing all this while but managed to pull the chair Matts vacated earlier closer to her bed.
Okay I would speak first, Kate said while nectar nodded.
How is your face, I heard you got hit in the face by your dad? Get some ice on it nectar.
And you sent Sly to deliver a parcel, what happened to you bringing it yourself.
What does a plane ticket to Paris have to help solve nectar? And who should I leave my barely a month old children I haven’t even seen or held yet with and go cruising with you to an unknown land.
This is one of the reasons why I keep calling you childish, I can’t be thinking for you all the time.
If I need vacation, I can afford that myself and when did you realize you haven’t done anything for me since we got married. If you want to do something for me, do it right?
All you ever think about is yourself, s-x, my loudness and why I met someone at a certain time. That was the foundation of our marriage. Nectar we can’t live that way.
Have you ever thought about the fact that I need the s-x too, and how hard it might have been for me, to see my life slipping away and yet enjoy myself?
To tell you the fact, I’m more of a s-x freak than you, so don’t ever make all this about I don’t make time for us.
Marriage is more than the S-x, and how much babies you can make, it’s also companionship.
I must admit I got into this with a wrong start, but I was even more pleased at a point I did married you, which I’m starting to regret now.
You see you can’t even look me in the eye.
Kate said faintly. Nectar was embarrassed and indecisive at the same time. He keeps nodding his head.
I also heard I have you to be grateful to. You made a mess of everything but you redeemed yourself when you saved me so I would give you one chance to tell me what you have on your mind.
There was silence for a while, Kate fidgeting with her phone at the same time, steals a few glances towards nectar whose face was down in his palm all these while.
He heaved a sigh of relief that grabbed Kate’s attention who was busy texting Matts.
You look unkempt, have you had any sleep at all? When was the last time you took your bath?
She just doesn’t know how to handle the whole issue. Kate asked again just to make a conversation.
In as much as she hates this man so much, and wants to pounce on him that very moment she also understands he has suffered a lot for the past weeks.
She would have wished to see his reaction when she was slipping away. That would have best informed her final decisions.
Staying with this man would remind his conscience every single day of his life, what he put her through.
That’s enough punishment for him, but another hell of a marriage for me. I would be hurting myself too and our children.
Yes, our children! Can they survive without a father’s love? I know what that did to me.
And the tension that would be home, I don’t think I want to let my children go through that.
Why does my heart beat for him even after all that I went through, I’m I stupid or a coward? This is no way to love. Kate kept thinking while staring at nectar who for a few seconds rested his head on Kate’s bed.
Where did I go wrong, she practically cried with her words, trying so hard to hide her emotions?
Nectar, raised his head slowly to meet her gaze when he realized her tone was talking for her now.
What should your cries do for me? I want to hear you say something, you claim I’m not a good listener. I’m ready to listen now.
Nectar I have been talking for the past five minutes now, help me here. Kate said making to shake him but decided against it.
If you are not ready to talk you can get out of my sight and don’t come back here looking like you just buried your wife.
He kept staring and every word failed him. Just then Catherine walked in.
Oh sorry, I would just come back later …. No mom, he was just leaving. Kate replied her mom.
Nectar stood up and filed pass Catherine.
Nectar go home, I would watch the kids for you. I realized you have been sleeping outside their ward lately. He smiled and walked out.
What was that all about love, Kate’s mom asked settling on the chair.
Mom I can’t do this anymore, I want to be home with you. She tried to raise herself up.
And your marriage? Catherine asked with worry.
It’s over, I have done this several times, I would be fine. Kate said supporting herself with the pillow.
Except this time it’s different Kate. How mom?
You are married with children, and secondly you went into that marriage not because you loved him but you endured to the point you can’t even admit to yourself you are in love now.
Catherine advised hoping her daughter would just listen to her.
I’m not in love with nectar, so I’m left with only one option my kids.
Kate you can’t fool me, I’m your mother. I know when you really love someone.
You think I would mind you leaving nectar. I don’t but I’m not ready to nurse another broken heart.
Mom, what’s the point, he doesn’t even appreciate it, he wants things done his way.
Like a while ago, he never said a word. I did all the talking, how am I supposed to leave with such a man. Kate asked.
I’m sure you kept running your mouth and he felt bad. Catherine asked.
Is he supposed to feel good? You see what I’m talking about, you talk as if your hands are clean too, don’t forget you started all these.
Are you supporting nectar now? Kate asked frowning.
Kate you didn’t give enough respect to your husband.
I asked your Dad where I went wrong with you last night; he could only tell me I pampered you too much.
He said that! Gosh, he should die already so I have some peace.
You see what just came out of your mouth, guard your tongue Kate and you would have a happy home.
As for what you decide finally, I would still support you. Catherine said finally.
I’m sorry Mom! It’s not as if am not listening to you.
I have but I just don’t know how to punish nectar.
Mom, how do I start, help me here. I wasn’t prepared for marriage. Dad pushed me into it without any grooming. Kate said with a relaxed tone now.
Talk to him then, if you feel he was supposed to teach you how to handle your marriage.
To be honest with you, nobody can teach you how to treat your husband, you need to learn that yourself. Catherine said smiling now.
That’s a trick, my airtime is not calling Dad, she said smiling.
Well that’s up to you now. By the way, Wilson wants to talk to you and Stacy when you recover.
Is he writing his will, tell him am not interested. He can pass on everything to Stacy.
You are so insensitive Kate. Forgiving your Dad would have been a great start for you but you are so adamant. I don’t know how you would handle his death in three months.
He is dying that soon. Kate just had to ask the same question.
As if you care Kate. I have to go now; Stacy is coming home for dinner. She said and smiled.
I know you just sidelined me, but what time is the dinner. Kate asked with a different expression. Seven pm, she mentioned quickly and flashed her a smiled while on her way out.
Drake, we haven’t known each other for that long and it’s not right to marry you now. Besides am not even sure I’m pregnant yet. It’s just a feeling.
Matts told Drake who came to visit. I have that covered, why don’t you take the test. Drake said bringing out the pregnancy test kit.
You bought this yourself. Matts asked.
Yeah, is something wrong with that? He asked surprised.
No, I’m just imaging how the pharmacist would be staring at you.
Matts said from inside the washroom. Don’t come in now Drake, I’m still unclad. She shouted out.
Matts I have seen all that before, let me just come in, he was saying when a knock came on the door.
Matts, your brother is here. Drake yelled out.
Tell him to go away, I would talk to him when I feel like. Nectar upon hearing that just turned away to his room.
Drake barged in. I told you not to come in yet, she tried to say while holding up the strip to his face. Okay I have seen it, we are not having a baby but how long do you plan on treating your brother that way.
I also knew about Pearls pregnancy, when I informed you later on, you were not angry with me. Drake the difference is you didn’t sleep with Pearl.
Yes I understand but he is not looking too good. You need to be there for him when things fall apart from Kate’s end.
I’ve heard you, would go speak with him now. Wait for me here, she said.
I would still want to marry you despite my inability to score that goal. He yelled after her smiling.
Nectar, are you going somewhere? Matts asked leaning against the door to his bathroom where he entered earlier to shower down properly for the first time since Kate was rushed in.
To spend some time with the boys. He replied.
How did your conversation end with Katie earlier?
I don’t know Matilda, and I’m fine with anything she has planned for me, I just want all these to blow over soon so I move on somehow.
Do you want your marriage back, she asked.
Matilda you know what I want but I already hurt her enough so I want to let go.
You are very stupid Saint you want to let go! Okay go ahead, for your information that woman loves you and to tell her you want a divorce yourself would hurt her a lot more.
Okay Matilda, thank you! Don’t thank me yet Saint, if you hurt her again you would hear from me.
Alright Sis, Nectar said and walked out of the bathroom bumping into Matts by the door.
And there’s a dinner at her house tonight. She called asking if i can help with that.
Okay! He said and started fixing himself up. The other shirt looks better with the jeans. Matts said and he nodded.
Dedicated to everyone who followed this story
Dad, it’s Kate! Are you busy? She asked still not sure how to start.
I heard there’s a dinner going on tonight. Yes, Kate. Do you want to come over as well. Wilson asked.
Doctor Sly said it’s not possible for me to be moving around now, so don’t worry you can have your family dinner.
I’m sorry, we can cancel until you are better. I just thought I had less time so I could make it up to your mom before my surgery starts next week.
But mom said you have up to three months? No Kate, I have just three weeks, she probably didn’t want you to worry. Wilson said.
Kate are you there he asked for the third time. Yes Dad, she responded with a teary tone.
That’s okay, Kate! I’m sure if I had to die during this surgery it’s just my punishment for all the tears I made you and your mom share while I looked on.
I’m sure you will make it Dad, just come back safe, Stacy would need you.
For me I have my husband, but she would need a man in her life. Kate said with a calm tone.
Talking of husbands, how is that going. Wilson asked after wiping his last tear from his face.
Dad, I don’t know where to start from. He isn’t talking either. Kate finally briefed his Dad about the main reason she called.
Kate, to be honest with you, despite your husbands mistakes he loves you. I knew that the first day I caught him stalking you outside my gate.
I had to call him in and asked some few questions, maybe you can start by showing him some respect.
He would really appreciate it and everything would fall in place. Your mom did that a lot , despite the many troubles I gave her.
Dad I’m just scared he would repeat his mistakes again. Kate said worried.
Trust me, he wouldn’t try it again. He has learnt his lesson the hard way.
Okay Dad, if anything happens again, the guilt will be on you. She said and they both giggled.
Just then, the door to her ward opened. Dad enjoy your dinner and don’t yell on Stacy too much. She said and quickly hanged up.
You got a new shirt nectar; she just had to say something before he goes mute again.
Are you back to nod your head throughout your stay here. Kate asked expecting him to say something.
The door opened slowly and they both looked to it’s direction.
What are you doing here he finally found his voice.
Good! You can talk. Now that your former mistress is here can we begin, or is she still your mistress.
Kate what are you doing, lets not start this way. He pleaded.
Start what exactly nectar? Marriage or a divorce? Kate asked.
Can you quickly choose one, I understand Pearl has a flight to catch but I want her to be present for this.
Kate what should I do again, I have apologized several times.
I thought apology is supposed to solve everything in marriage. Why is ours different.
It’s different because you don’t do it right, you never have. You say I’m sorry several times and keep going back to your mistakes.
What should I do when that happens again nectar? Do you know why I’m even talking to you now?
Yes we have kids, they are the only reason you are considering this.
Nectar said walking to her bed while Pearl avoided their gazes.
And who told you I want to be with you now nectar. Kate asked.
I know you want to try; please I want this to work. Let me fix it. Nectar said holding her hands which she quickly withdrew.
What is left to fix nectar! Everything is broken, you remember my reaction after I came home when I runned away to Drake’s, that was the genesis of the feelings I tried so hard to figure out. Kate was saying and got interrupted.
What it’s worth I think you should know you two are obviously doing this wrongly again. Pearl blurted out from behind.
And what is that supposed to mean Pearl? Nectar said walking to her side.
Leave her alone Nectar. She obviously has something to say.
Now I’m listening Pearl.
You should know he isn’t a magician to figure out you have feelings for him if you don’t tell him. Pearl who was quiet all along blurted out and had no intention of stopping now.
You keep it bolted in and it kills him every time he has to come home wondering how you feel.
Your happiness has always been his priority, we end up talking about you all the time. I do the listening and he talks.
Do you know how hard it was for me knowing he just jumped off me and all he could think about was you?
The guy loves you, the least you could do is reciprocate that, tell him how you feel and stop acting bossy all the time, he doesn’t mind but it gets to him a lot.
At least he deserves that sort of respect from you.
Well I have to go, whatever happens to this marriage, I’m sorry I almost ruined something wonderful.
Pearl finally said and walked out.
There was silence for a while until he spoke up.
I’m sorry Kate, I just want to start afresh, he was saying when she interrupted.
What do you plan on doing now that you don’t have a job. She asked.
Can we forget that for now, let me know where I stand with you first then we can talk about jobs.
Nectar said squeezing her hands, which she was fighting the urge to pull off.
I love you obviously you do, lets try again.
No I don’t Nectar, we obviously would try again but this time you have to work for it.
She said thinking if she just did the right thing by denying what she obviously felt for him.
I would do anything, now that I don’t have a job, I definitely would need something doing. Nectar blurted out.
I want to stay with my mom for now, we will start from the beginning. Kate said.
What are you saying, you are not coming home with me? He asked.
Not yet, you know you didn’t marry me properly! You have to do the right thing now.
Sounds, good? She asked.
I would come home after the renewal of our vows. She added.
Don’t worry I wont stay that long. Nectar just kept staring.
Oh don’t give me that look nectar, I’m being fair here because I was wrong too form the start.
That’s the only reason why we are having this conversation now and I’m sorry I disrespected you several times. Can we have a real marriage now nectar. I can be submissive you know.
Oh really! Then what happened to the Seven months with me. Nectar asked a bit relaxed.
Your sister and Mandy and a whole lot happened. You were just a victim of circumstance besides you forced me to marry you, remember?
Yeah, your Dad was tough to convince though!
You see why I said you didn’t work for this marriage, do it right this time before he starts his surgery.
I can’t be perfect all the time, I’m a mess and stubborn sometimes please don’t take me for granted.
You are too proud to admit your faults even now but that’s okay.
I want this so I would make that decision for you as I can see pride written all over you now .
I heard everything you said, from the s-x to where I went wrong, nectar was saying when she smiled.
What’s funny Kate!
You realized you obviously just mentioned the s-x so we talk about it.
I can’t promise you what you are used to but we can always push the kids to Mom’s and…….
Kate that’s okay, I would manage. He said to avoid making her talk much as he feels her body temperature rising.
I don’t want you to manage, I know you have needs, I would do my best to be there but please don’t hurt me this way again.
He nodded and adjusted her pillow for her.
I obviously have feelings for you, sorry I lied earlier but it’s depth I can’t tell and therefore I won’t contest it.
Kate said rather slowly, frowning in between the talk and the pains while trying to endure the surge running through her body.
How is he always looking ravishing after a fresh bath she thought.
Together we will face the obstacles ahead. He said with assurance.
How does the name Kira and Kino Sound? Nectar interjected smiling.
Sounds perfect, but your sister would have to name the kids. I promised her that, please and no more secrets nectar.
I don’t want to go back home to an angry Matt’s. She said and got lucky. He leaned over and kissed her forehead.
Opinions are like……
A lot of you may have wished this story ended in a different way, but this is how far the lord has brought us.
Two wrongs……. but then those two just happen to get everything wrong. It’s not always when you start well it would end well but when you start wrong it definitely isn’t worth it unless there is a change somewhere.
One has pride and the other too much patience. When you spare the rod…..
To all those who commented and supported God bless you all.
Those who read and ignore, you kept me wondering if the story was bothering or probably worth it.
And to the ghost readers, well done!
Now to everyone I would be back on my next birthday
