And a perfect timing it was.

He walked in right in time to see that his parents just got back from church, he greeted his father who was in the sitting room before going to the room to greet his mother.

''We will talk after lunch'' his father said loudly from the sitting room.

''Yes dad'' he said yawning, not that he was feeling sleepy but he didn't want his dad to start another side talk that he was in no way interested in.

''Mum, i will be in my former room, incase you need me'' he said to his mum and pushed open the door to the room before his mum could respond.

He entered the room and old memories started flooding into his mind without invitation.

He looked at the room, it was still the same way he left it, when he was just 19, still the same wall paper with the pictures of his favourite football team; Super Eagles on it, his bed was still well arranged and the sheet tucked in like they were expecting him to move back in anytime soon, his reading table was still very much there and finally the paintings he made on the wall, were still there squeaky clean, he went over and touched the painting that had made his father to do to him what he would never forgive him for.

It was a painting of a man and his wife loved up. The man wore a suit just like his father always did and the woman tied a wrapper around her waist and a lace blouse. He remembered when he drew that painting in tears wishing for the happy family that his friend Nate had.

He walked over to the dusty bed and layed down without minding the dust, he knew that his mum had deliberately refused to repaint the room after he left almost 11 years ago.

He must have drifted into sleep while relishing the memories of the good old times, because when he opened his eyes, his 4 year old niece was smiling and tugging at his shirt.

''Princess'' he said lifting her off the floor to the bed. ''How are you doing''

''Uncle am fine, good afternoon, Look, what i drew'' she said practically pushing the piece of paper she was holding into his face.

''alright, let me see it'' he took the paper from her, and stared memontarily at the painted picture in his hands before shuddering.

''Nice painting princess'' he said to the kid who lit up with happiness.

''That is Jesus and the Samaritan woman'' she said pointing at the painting.

''I see'' he said, he had no idea who or what the samaritan woman is or stood for, although he has heard about that passage in the Bible but never for once opened the Bible to read it, not that he even owned one.

''Adaeze, allow uncle to sleep'' his twin sister Ebere called from the opposite side of the room before opening the door to meet him sitting up with Adaeze, his niece on his laps.

''oh, you are awake'' she said smiling.

He smiled back but a scowl quickly followed.

Seeing her here confirmed his ealier suspicion, they were here for a reason, none other than to discuss his matters.

''Brother mi, good afternoon'' she said when he remained still with the scowl on his face.

He didn't reply instead he gave her a look that clearly said Shouldn't-you-be-at-home-taking-care-of your-own-home''

Anyway, he didn't blame her, her husband a young and successful billionaire loved and over-pampered his wife. She had everything at her beck and call.

''atleast answer the greeting'' she said with a tinge of anger.

''Good afternoon meddler'' he replied at her nonchalantly.

''Go and get married, old bachelor'' she fired back before banging the door as she left.

He knew he was wrong to call her names, but he couldn't help it, she was supplying more information about him than was needed to Mirabel, and he really wasn't pleased with that.

''Princess, go and play with your your elder brothers in the sitting room, i will be out soon'' he said to Adaeze, putting her down, and the girl walked out humming to the chorus of a popular christian hymn-all things bright and beautiful.



''Kelechi and Chidebere, am sure you both know the reason for this gathering'' their dad started after the delicious meal of Rice and fresh fish stew.

''Yes dad'' Chidebere replied.

''what other reason? if not to preach me into getting married'' K.C said irritated.

''well, that's right, but am not preaching am only telling you what should be and what is right for you'' his dad said smiling after a brief moment of silence.

''well, no need for that, am interested in getting married now'' he said and all the faces turned to look at him intently ''To Mirabel'' he added when nobody said a word.

''K.C are you okay?'' he sister asking bring a hand to touch his forehead but he pushed it away.

''Am okay sis, am interested in marriage now, is that hard to believe?''

''No son, i knew you would come around'' his mum said happily.

''Am so proud of you son'' his father said smiling.

He wrinkled his nose in irritation, he could not wait to crush that tinge of happiness, he would make him pay for all the times he made him unhappy as a young child.

Re: Love Hiccups by KimberlyWest(f): 12:49am On Jun 09
*Cont'd.

K.C was behind the wheel, driving and whistling happily to himself.

The meeting with his family members ended well, they were all happy and even popped a champagne to celebrate his intention to settling down.

His dad, the happiest of all, scheduled a date for the meeting with the Owuka's family to indicate their interest in his daughter.

He hissed, what was there to announce anyway, the two father's involved have already made their decision.

But that wasn't the reason for his unquatifiable Joy.
He smiled broadly as he remembered the reason.

He felt happy that it was finally time to take a pound of flesh off his father's skin, for all those times he beat up his mother in his presence, for all the times he physically abused him, for all the names he called him while growing up and another big pound of flesh for making him watch while he brings other woman to their home and to his matrimonial bed.


His mind went to the worst of all his abuse and he recoiled with anger before swallowing hard, he was really grateful that his three sisters all attended boarding schools, so non of them actually witnessed their father's monstrous acts,

''No wonder they see him as Mr. perfect'' he muttered, visibly irritated.

His phone rang from the seat next to him.

''Guy, I'm almost there, Two more minutes'' he said into the phone and pressed the end button.

''Nate and impatience'' he said softly.

He had ealier on invited them to meet him at a Chyko's resturant not too far from his house but Ken declined insisting that they meet in his house.

He honked the horn twice before the gateman came out and let him in, he drove in and parked his car properly before making his way into the apartment.

He went into the sitting room and met Ken and Nate sitted, engrossed in the football match they were watching.

''Man, there is a reason why that door is there'' Ken said immediately he saw him.

''Mr Ken, apart from banging it in the face of your foes, i don't know any other reason'' He replied with a smirk.

Nate looked at him up and down ''You look like you just survived a crash''

''I know! And you don't have to say it so politely'' he mocked Nate.

He look ruffled a bit because after his meeting with his parents, he had gone into his car and screamed and banged his fist continously into the chair, at his dad's attitute when he told them of his intention towards Mirabel.

The man- his father, who made him hate marriage and Love was beaming with happines and that happiness became like a multi-vite, it has fueled his quest of vengance the more, he can already imagine the look that will be on his dad's face send his world crumbling.

Since he grew up to the stage of making decisons himself, he had made it a point of duty to always remind his dad whenever they meet that he wasn't interested in marriage, he liked the look of disappointment he normally sees on his face, but now the anger and disappointment were no longer enough, he needed to do something more painful.

''Oh, K.C you are here'' Ken's wife said dropping the tray of food she as holding on the table.

''yeah, Happy Sunday Mrs. Ken'' he said and flashed her a genuine smile.

''best wishes, soon-to-be-Mr.'' she replied and gave him a thumbs up.

His smile turned to disgust and he immediately turned to his friends, who both looked up at him once as if they knew he would react that way.

''You know, sometimes you both gossip more than those old women in the villages''

''Sorry man, she is my wife, i tell her everything'' Ken's lips twitched.

''Odiro funny o (it's not funny o), You should have gone to NTA and announced it, or better still you should have gone to the street and screamed 'K.C is getting married to Mirabel'' He replied tossing his phone on the chair, Mirabel was calling him and he wasn't in the right mood to answer the call, he didn't trust his acting skills at the moment.

''Oh, Mirabel, what a pretty name, I can't wait for that day'' Vicky replied happily.

''You won't wait for too long darling'' he said sarcastically but she only smiled since she had no idea what he meant by that statement.

''Food is ready'' she announced to the guys and they all moved to the dinning table.
Victoria was a good cook, he culinary skills were perfect.

After the meal which consisted of a jollof rice, plantain and chicken prepared with bread crumbs, the guys went back to the sitting room where K.C then narrated everything that happened at his parents house to them.

''Perfect! You did a great Job of making them think it was real, I must commend your acting skills'' Nate said satisfactorily.

''am still not in on this'' Ken added making them raise questionable brows at him.

''Don't look at me that way'' he warned.

''alright, but still you will help us get the doctor that we can trust, the pay is high'' Nate said and Ken nodded in accordance.

K.C smile deepened, he will hit his dad so hard that he won't even know what hit him.

Chapter 4.

K.C sat with his hands constantly rubbing his forhead, feeling irritated and angry at his father and his family members.

Just a week after telling them that he was interested in Mirabel, they were already in Mirabel's family house in Abuja for the introduction.

His looked around him, they were lots of people around, he couldn't count but they should be upto a hundred.

''all this people for common introduction'' he said to his friend and then hissed as if to drive home his point.

''Guy, when there is money, nothing is impossible'' Nate replied waving the glass of wine in his hand at a young lady who was staring sheepishly at him.

''Man, this place sucks'' Ken said to his friend pointing his finger towards a lady who was giving him green signals.

''We should have put up a sign on your forehead that reads 'am married'' K.C said and turned to give the girl a wink.
There is no harm in flirting alittle, even if it's your introduction.

''Man, this is your introduction o'' Ken warned him jabbing a finger to his chest playfully.

He smiled at his friend's comment, they both knew it was fake yet they still showed up to support him, his friends were one in a million.
Another thing aroused his excitement-the presence of the young doctor.

As promised Ken had kept his side of the plan, his only assignment of getting a doctor who is willing to exchange a lttile favour for money was already fulfilled

He nodded to the young doctor who was sitting next to a beautiful lady who he apparantly just met.

He smiled inwardly, when he sees his kind he knows them, and the doctor was literally his type of person, he belonged to the same categories with as him and Nate, he couldn't wait for the introduction to get started and get done with, so he would know if the young doctor was willing to partake in this plan of their's.


''Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here today in the compound of the lion of EKeme's kingdom, Senator Owuka Obiora, the man of the people, today marks the day the bond which ealier on existed between him and Chief Ubah Ohaneze will further deepen and become stronger because their children have both decided to come together as one...'' the M.C a man in his late thirties began.

The three of them hissed simultaneously, the man was talking nonsense.

''History, what is this man saying'' Nate asked first.

''still as confused as you are, I don't blame him though, that is what he was paid to do'' Ken replied.

''Loads of crap, this dude needs a hot slap'' K.C said gnashing his teeth when the M.C mentioned something about him and Mirabel, being in love.



K.C was getting impatient, he finally let out a breath which he didn't know he was holding when Mirabel was led into the open space by her friends and mother.

Her smile made him wonder if she was doing a tootpaste advert.


****

Nate breathing rate finally became normal when the introduction kicked off in full, all day long, all week long, he had stayed awake wishing that K.C would not flop out of this plan of his.

The plan was perfect, he liked it, there was no going back now, his friend K.C has every right to do what he was up to, no one can ever forget all the marks and scars that he usually carried around as a kid because of his father.

****

With K.C's perfect acting skills nothing could go wrong, he had succedded in deceiving everybody around him that he was really interested in Mirabel and marriage when in reality he was far from being interested.

K.C opened his eyes and looked over at Mirabel who had her eyes closed as her father prayed and blessed them.

How could she be so confident and subtle to abandon Stephen whom she truly loved to be with him? He thought to himself.

Maybe afterall, his plans will do her a favour and she will return to her lover.

After the prayer by Mirabels dad, his own dad prayed for them and the introduction ended, which made him overly excited, he couldn't wait to get out, he gave Mirabel a peck to avoid small talks and gossips and left without any word to his family members.


***

''I will pay you 500 thousand to do this, just say yes'' K.C urged the doctor.

''you can ask about me, doctor Peter Anyawu, I am a man of integrity, am only doing this because Kennedy pleaded with me'' The doctor said pointing at Ken who sat quietly like a statue.

''alright, 1Million'' Nate said gently, he was tired, he needed to go home and this doctor wasn't helping matters.

The four of them were in a Bar, not very far from where the introduction took place, drinking and discussing and negotiating.

''One million will do'' Doctor peter said with a wide smile that showed off his gapped teeth.

Ken, sat down with his arms folded watching his friends, the way K.C was talking made him think that there was more to this plan, But in all, he just hoped his friend realizes what he was doing before it's too late to turn back.
