Yes, am asking you to. Be fast about it. Mom worry too much over these stuffs. I sniffed! Okay sorry, not good enough Kate. “I said am sorry”. That’s better, mom replied.
Geez mom, I have to go now since you are driving me out. Please kindly send my car through the driver tomorrow.
I will be tempted to come back and never go back. I will, now come here; Mom gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheeks.
Now be good! My mom said sternly, Nectar kindly take her away before she changes her mind. Mom told Nectar without looking in my direction.
Nectar drove in total silence and spoke up at a point claiming, the contract has no details concerning the one year.
It is just a normal wedding document Kate; it just stated strangely, if you decide to leave, I would have custody of the child.
I yelled, I became confused, what are you talking about. I drafted this myself and signed. “You did this”. I started hitting nectar everywhere I could lay my hands.
Please calm down; we do not have to do this now Kate. Let us get home first, please, if you keep shaking me we might end up in a ditch. I heard nectar say but my mind was very far away.
The vehicle kept skipping off the road, and all I heard was a thud. I just woke up at the hospital, I recognized my mum, and then my dad came through the door.
You nearly killed an innocent man, “like mother like daughter”. I told you am smarter than you so do not joke with me. Stop blaming your husband for any change in that contract; I made sure you could not contest it. So do not even try it, because you will not succeed. “Dad said furiously and tried to storm out”.
He bumped into mom while still fuming; mum asked him. Is that how to treat a daughter who just had an accident. Without a word, I only heard a thud and that was it.
I looked up at my mum in tears. Do not worry, nectar told me everything, why would you even do such a thing Kate. I thought you just did not want to get married, because you did not want to leave me.
Now am beginning to think, Mandela broke you completely, to think of what you did. Were you just going to ridicule yourself in your matrimonial home and toy with an innocent man’s life, Kate I brought you up better than this!
Marriage is sacred; you go in and do not try finding the easy way out. I thought one way or the other; you figured you could learn to endure him.
That was why you went ahead, I would not have wanted this kind of mess you would be calling a marriage for you, trust me, I am there, I have been there.
I know you did not like nectar, what was the point of going through everything just to convince your grams and dad, you should bring your own man home and you come back with none, but just to go ahead with the proposed marriage.
Mom am sorry, I did not tell you anything sooner, and nectar you agreed to this, mom shifted her attention to nectar now.
Just then, I realized nectar was standing in one corner of the hospital, staring as if I just escaped death.
“Well I do not blame you; you are only a man in love after going through a lot yourself”. Mom confronted nectar. Let me know when she gets discharged, enjoy your marriage!
I saw her coming towards me. You, she turned to me, I believe this is your punishment for making this choice for yourself. Mom was walking out, when I called after her. Mom am sorry.
Just then, the nurse came in and I saw nectar walking towards her. They were talking discreetly; I was getting worried.
Am the patient here, you do not need to whisper to each other, talk to me. I said to nectar and Kate.
"Is something wrong with my child"? Hello Nurse, am asking a question here!
To be continued
Sorry for late update, got held up at work.

|Re: No More Room For Love- By Loudest Thoughts by cbella(f): 6:04pm On Aug 18|
Ermm, Nectar tried to find his voice. But I think he found it after I gave him a killer look. Kate you are fine, he managed to say finally. Then what is it, you are looking so funny, “I asked”!
Kate it is just that, the tests done on you whiles you were out briefly shows, you might be having twins. “What”? I blurted out. We are not sure yet, but I have scheduled another lab for you later in the evening. nectar quickly said.
Meaning am spending another day here! I asked nectar sarcastically. If you want us to go we can, so you come back later, nectar chipped in. We were still talking when his parents came in.
I saw Matts pulling in later but standing by the door. Just then, nectar excused himself. They were talking and I could not figure out what happened. She just retreated back, and went out of the door.
“I sighed better”, while Mr. and Mrs. Glover kept ranting about how nectar should be careful of driving.
After nectar walked up to us, he just gave out a smile.
The labs came back positive, and I could not believe I was going to have to stop working soon. Focus on my twins, I hate to be idle, probably mom will help me out.
I finally remembered I needed to call her, I tried for the sixth time and she did not pick up. Is that your mum again, I think you should give her time, she will come around. Nectar advised!
What is your own, you caused all this, am sure you are happy about how things turned out right? I saw myself snapping at nectar again.
Kate, don’t talk that way, remember I just wanted to marry you because I like you, I didn’t say anything about contract, that was your decision and I approved. What wrong have I done now you know, let me get out of here. Nectar hit his head once and the smile on his face vanished.
He walked from my bed to the door where he bumped into Anthon, James and drake, smiled and walked out. What was that, James asked. Leave him, I told the guys. Don’t tell me you guys have started fighting, Anthon asked. We fight all the time, I told my friends and they all laughed.
After narrating everything to them, I just heard drake cursing, and I was like what is wrong with you. You men gave me this idea, now it backfired you are cursing. Kate do you realize you are tied down now, yes I know, don’t remind me.
Besides, now that am having twins, I cannot give my children up for anything. We will find a way out, James said.
What way, remember we are talking about Mr. Santa, the most influential person here in George Town.
Therefore, what, drake said!
Kate I will not let anyone take you from me. Then the whole place became so quiet, I mean I will not let anyone take you from us, he quickly corrected himself. Right, Drake said regrettably! James and Anthon, confused as they are, all chorused, yes we will do something.
“I thought to myself if what mom said about drake’s feelings for me could be true”.
They left when nectar came in to announce the discharge notice. I hate this gentle man right now; I mean how he is so calm about all the happenings on going.
We arrived home in matts car, which I was out the whole drive home, my father in law insisted I should be pushed upstairs in a wheel chair; I just have a little limp I replied.
After what looks like thirty minutes, I was finally ready to take a nap. Should I get you something, mum is bringing dinner in here later.
Kate are you sleeping, nectar kept asking. Common gentle man, can I have some peace? You can see am struggling to sleep, what is your own at all. I hissed.
Kate I did not mean to wake you. Just then, there was a knock and I saw Matts coming in with a tray. You have to be kidding me, I yelled. Sis I thought we talked about you avoiding her for now. I heard nectar say.

Saint, do not call me that, Nectar yelled out to his sister. Okay nectar, mum sent me. Matts answered and i just wanted to find out how she is doing. Come here, bring the food, you can go now, he told Matts.
I watched on while, brother and sister make their noise. Matts hurriedly went out. But then she quickly rushed back in, Katie if you need anything let me know. Really matts, am sure if I need someone to sleep with my husband I will call you.
What? Nectar retorted. Stay out of this gentle man, will you? I told nectar with fire in my eyes now.
All right, Katie now that you mentioned it, I admit I was wrong but I thought I was doing the right thing back then, you call sleeping with my man, RIGHT, I asked matts in a high tone.
Look, I think your sister needs a Psych evaluation. I pointed out to nectar. I mean you just heard what she said. Katie I did not sleep with Mandela because I want to hurt you or anything. I was just looking out for you. Matts said with tears almost failing her.
Which Mandela, the same one you kept moaning his name, Nectar asked startling me. Will you stay out of this? I shoved nectar an ugly face, and he took a chill pill in the couch watching us.
What makes you think I even want you looking out for me Matts. Common we are friends Katie. Point of correction, we were friend’s Matts. I rubbed in! Matts could not help but this time the tears were over flowing.
“Until you broke me completely, which I keep thinking about it never makes sense.”
Have I offended you in anyway, I mean not that I can remember. I asked the crying matts.
I would have taken this as any of those things, if it came from Annette or Eve but not you Matts. She was just standing there, with tears flowing like the ocean pacific.
Sis, answer her, why did you! Nectar yelled once more. I know you would not do anything without a reason; start talking now or I will commit another murder. He yelled again.My heart skipped on hearing that, I tried to look in his direction but I was too scared.
Katie, I tried to tell you Mandela was not a faithful man, but you would not hear any of it. I caught him several times, and the last one that got to me was when he rapped a fifteen-year-old and paid the family off. Matts said with her voice trilling off.
Remember you sent me there to drop his birthday cake when you were out of town. I went in and heard him arguing with a woman, I went out waited for the woman to come out.
After several pleas with the woman, she told me what happened, she could not report to the police because they were scared, besides he promised to cater for them so there was no need to. Remember we had to fight over the cake, you were so sure I internationally did not go to his place. I could not speak to you; I mean you never believed me when I told you about his many escapades. The only thing you will believe is when you see it with your eyes; I decided to put our friendship on the line. Yes, call me crazy. You were the only family I had then. Matts narrated vividly the past.
I could not see you broken after you move in with him and finally marry him, I can stand you broken now, but not forever in a useless marriage. That was why you saw me there, in his house when we just spoke not long ago and I did not exactly sleep with him; you only saw what I wanted you to see. I have been carrying this guilt for far too long. Matts said still rubbing the dirt in my face.
So how is this my fault matts, that I loved a guy too much, that I was blind. Is that the point you are trying to make, just get out now. I finally felt like questioning matts.
I yelled so loud that, I felt like my children were coming out. I did not know when I passed out, but woke up and found nectar in the same position he was before.

|Re: No More Room For Love- By Loudest Thoughts by cbella(f): 12:25am On Aug 19|
It looked like nectar took care of me medically. How are you feeling, can you feel the children? Nectar asked with worry written on his face. I just nodded to the affirmative.
I want to check if you don’t mind, he asked, I just rolled my eyes and I saw him with his kits checking me out. Thank God, he murmured. You are fine Kate; will you care for your food now. I just nodded. I heard nectar saying from a distance.
He has been in a good mood, since after the incident with Matts. It has been close to a month now; mum has refused to talk to me.
My stomach is growing gradually; I have not been to work in a month. Stacy comes over with drake to handle paper work. Drake has been very helpful, handling work for me. I have not seen Matts around lately.
I managed to ask her mum over dinner. Oh that girl, she has gone to visit the dad, she claims she needs some time away from here.
“I later asked myself why I was even asking about her in the first place”.
Wifey, I heard nectar called out, smiling as she if he just won a lottery. “I asked myself is he dreaming”?
I managed to turn to his direction; I want us to go check our new house out. Gent…. You mean nectar, he quickly said, yeah I replied. I think I will pass, then his smile vanished, I saw his mum excusing us.
What point of don’t ask me for permissions like a child do you not understand, you keep following me everywhere like, a puppy following the mother dog.
When will you make time for a new doctor to start seeing you, it has been over a month Kate? What did I just say; let me handle my own issues, okay love, he responded rather calmly.
I just hissed. Unknown number calling, “I thought who could this be.”
Kate, its Annette, eve is on the other side. Hi Kate, I think that was eve, Hi, I sighed and responded. Can we see you like today, Annette said cheerfully. Sure! You know where to find me, I said and hanged up; I was surprised I was calm over the call.
“I would have lashed out on them some few weeks ago, I thought to myself”. I think Matts has given me the clarity I need, but it still doesn’t give them the privilege to betray our friendship codes.
Trust us if we say we had no idea she was going to do that, yes we knew about the escapades. However, you were too engrossed in your relationship that we did not want to cause you another one. Can we go back to our friendship days, we miss you. Eve finally stopped talking for once since they came over to the house.
I was deep in thoughts, “why did I even agree to this meeting”. Moreover, eve keeps flipping her hands for me to notice her ring, what the hell, I kept saying in my mind.
Annette on the other hand looks so apologetic unlike those days, she is someone who never says sorry. Kate, are you with us, I heard eve’s voice. Then I heard another voice, Wifey are you okay!
Yes, how is that your problem, I said before I even realized my so called friends were staring at me. Kate, what was that, the poor gentle man was just so concerned, why you suddenly turned pale. Annette cautioned.
You two stay out of this, I snapped at my friends. I think coming here was a waste of time, Annette said and quickly dragged eve along, and I just stared and watched them go.
I decided to see my mum today I grabbed my car keys.
I know you want me to be strong but I am a man does not make me a rock. I am hurting too; I cannot do away with the guilt of losing a wife because of a stupid mistake.
Just one mistake and you are gone. I cannot even look at the fruit of that mistake. She is not to blame. Whom should I blame when you have decided to leave me all alone?
That stupid mother of hers you left her behind for cannot stop playing the homemaker. I am doing what you asked of me, they still leave with me. Your baby girl is all grown up now. I made sure she got married in a good family.
We may not see face to face on a lot of issues but am holding on to the day I join you my dear Claudia. I told you what you suggested was a bad idea. We should have waited.
A man does not cry, but I cry myself to bed every day for the past 27 years. The only joy I knew is I see yourself sometimes in Kate, though I know it is not possible.
Yours is gone. You are gone too far beyond reach. I fail you when I asked you to drive them that night. “What was I thinking; I could have just left my friends to attend to Catherine”.
Now I cannot look them both in the eyes. I see them as mere evils that have plucked you away in your prime. Am sorry I cannot call them family.
Am sure God is punishing me for the way I treated her when all you did was loved her.
I will always love you; he was talking to himself holding his late wife’s portrait. He heard some footsteps and quickly pushed the portrait back to its original place.

Mum, can you at least ask me how am fairing? For what seems like minutes, she spoke up. What is the point of staying angry with you, mom finally said a word? Mom am sorry?
Okay dear, hope you are treating the poor boy with dignity this time. Mom, do you have to ask! Because if I find out you are still that rude to him. I do not know what I will do to you yet, but do not try it.
Have you found yourself another hospital for the antenatal? Mom, I will do that this week please. When I left my mom’s, I pulled up in front of my husband’s house.
“I was not sure what this new chapter of marriage holds for me, but I did give it so much thought on the drive home.”
As it stands now, am stuck in a loveless and no way out marriage. How do I get out without hurting my mum, and he is the father of my children?
Should I stay for these kids to have a father? I look like I could handle myself but I just broke down in tears, holding the steering firmly when I heard a knock on my window.
That was when I realized I parked in front of the gate earlier. I rolled down and saw Matt’s pathetic face. Hello, have you been crying, I quickly adjusted myself and wiped my face with the back of my palm.
“And how is that your business, I yelled out”.
I have been waiting for the past five minutes and it looks like you were out, are you okay Katie! Matts asked.
Tears just started flowing like; I had been saving it for far too long. Katie, what is wrong, open up. My hands were faster than my mind when I rolled the doors down.
It is okay; right there let it all out, I was fighting the urge of pulling out of her arms or staying. Matts has always been great with hugs and consoling. WhatsApp bestie? Do you mind sharing?
I nodded my head like this wasn’t the same girl, I vowed never to talk to. Matts, how do I spend my entire life with a man I don’t love, I do not want to be with him. I asked her avoiding her gaze.
At first, I was only doing this for my mum and dad to let me be, but the contract backfired. What do I do now? How do I get out of it?
You will if you want to Katie, my brother is not that hard to convince. You can get a divorce once you put to bed. Matts said so sure of herself. How? I cannot do that to an innocent man whose children I carry. You know me, am hurting inside. The reason for my rude attitudes lately, but am not that heartless to do that to nectar.
Answer me matts, before I realized, I had let the cat out of the bag? Without knowing it! What? Katie, saint is the father of your twins. Matts snapped now. I could feel the trembling in her voice.
I quickly pulled out of her arms, after I realized what I said. Yes, and so you plan to turn on me again? No bestie, I have no plans of doing that, but he has the right to know! Matts seems so true this time. What for Matts. I questioned.
You do not know how this will make him happy. If he knows he is having another baby, He will do everything you ask him. What do you mean by another baby? Katie you mean he has not told you. Matts queried!
What is he supposed to tell me? You had better do or I smack your face right now. I raised my head meeting matts gaze now. Saint was married in Germany to the love of his life of ten years. Matts opened up.
What do you mean was? I became so attentive to matts now. I think he should tell you himself, I do not want to prey or scare you. Matts chipped in.
If you want my forgiveness, you had better tell me now. I tried to bribe matts now.

Has it come to that Katie, yes it has Matts. Kate quickly told matts before she could change her mind.
Nectar was not a violent man, but nobody could tell what the argument was about, at least he still hasn’t told us what their fight was about. His wife slipped and hit herself so hard; rushing to the hospital was a weekend.
Doctors were unavailable; you know you cannot get involved when you are a family to the patient. On rushing his seven months’ pregnant wife to the hospital, he learnt it would take the doctor one hour to reach the hospital, which was outside of a town.
They went on a vacation in a remote town, where the nearest hospital has no doctors on duty during that weekend.
They waited for that hour and no one was showing up, looking at the unexperienced nurses toy with his family, he got into the operating room, being a doctor himself, he tried to save his already dying wife and child.
Which proved futile, he was nearly discredited as a doctor when the two nurses on duty spoke on his behalf; he just tried to save his wife from an incompetent hospital, they confirmed.
Since then he came back home seven years now and opted for weekend shifts at the hospital, he does not mind working throughout the whole week, but he knows the weekend matters. Nectar is a shadow of himself and hence his childish behaviors as you put it always. Kate gave matts a gesture, that says mind your damn business on that her initial statement.
He might not be earning much, but he chose the smallest hospital just to keep reminding himself of his failure to save his family. You can throw an insult at saint as a woman but he will just smile at you.
He blames himself all the time for that tragedy; he changed his name from saint to nectar, called saint and cannot save his family, then he is no saint, he kept murmuring that for a whole year since he got back, but now the worst is almost over. Matts narrated and paused in between.
I was afraid back there, the last time when he yelled with that tone, Matts resumed with her full gaze on Kate now.
Has he done anything violent to you Katie? Huh! Then I realized I was deep in thoughts again. No he hasn’t, thank you I murmured to Matts.
As we entered, through the gates finally in our rides, all I wanted was to sleep so I can think about my life. Got in and found nectar working on something by his study table.
You are back already, how is your mum, nectar asked Kate. Fine, but please no further questions, I want to sleep, then we can talk. Kate replied her husband.
“Kate saw the surprised gestures written all over nectars face over her first calm conversation with him without yelling, Kate was surprised herself.”
“Who wouldn’t after all that she just heard, she is not that inhumane, she thought to herself once more.”
Okay, wake up in time for dinner, Nectar said smiling childishly again. I just jumped on my bed and slept. Kate woke up to noises; she shrugged and opened her eyes.
I said you should leave her alone, am not sure she would want to see you. Kate heard nectar cautioned Matts.
“Emmm gentle man am still not used to calling nectar by his name.” Let her in, I will be fine with her! Kate said trying to sound free.
Katie, I just came to check on you, I know you will be having a headache by now, am sorry for dropping that bomb on you earlier. Matts said with sincerity in her voice.
That is fine Matts, I guess I had to know. Mum said dinner is ready, so you should come down, she further said this time without any burden.
I will in some minutes, Kate managed to say with sleep burning her eyes up. See you around then. Matts waved and walked away smiling.
Nectar, flashed a confused gaze on me, and back to her sister who was walking out. What is that all about, his eyes were trying to ask Kate. “Mind your own business, gentle man”? Kate said in her head gently.
Washing down after dinner was refreshing, Kate was talking to her mum on the decisions she has made when nectar came in, she watched him wrap up whatever he was doing earlier, washed down and moved to the couch, as he has been doing since after the accident.
