Great work, keep it rolling.
I just love the way you updates.

You write the story from Kate's head as if she is narrating the story while also, writes as if you are telling the story of Kate.

EPISODE 39


I have made a decision on the antenatal; I want to have it at your hospital, and also can we look at the house you got later in the week, because I will be resuming work next week? Kate sat nectar down for a talk.

Nectar kept staring, while Kate did all the talking, say something or you don’t want to be my doctor anymore.

Nectar finally sighed, and said okay! I will have the paper work done tomorrow, but you should know things have changed. Nectar said at the end and paused for a minute, making Kate wonder what he was referring to.

“Kate gave nectar a start talking now gesture”. Now that we are married, I could be your doctor out of the hospital, but not inside the hospital premises.

I sure will get you a good one; nectar said and adjusted himself in the couch, I must admit I was a little disappointed he said that, but I understood. Kate reassured herself.

Finally, your mum has been waiting for like two hours now, nectar said after one afternoon nap. What? You did not wake me up. Kate asked nectar as if they had an agreement concerning that.

Kate you said when you are asleep I should not interrupt, Nectar said innocently this time. Gosh, forget whatever I said. What a child you are, Kate hissed and stood up.

“Where is she, before nectar could say anything, Kate had rushed downstairs.”
Hey mom, Kate be careful you don’t fall off as you are running down the stairs like a child. Mom, what are you doing here, are you driving me out?

We talked with the family for a while, when I asked my mum inside my room. Hey WhatsApp, mum don’t get angry, I was going to tell you.
What have you not told me again? That nectar is the father of my twins. Kate said softly! Huh, say again, yes you remember the gentle man I slept with at the bar.

Yes, Kate, you mentioned that when he first came to the house, I thought you were being rude as usual. Have you told him yet, mom inquired?No I do not know how he will take it. Kate confirmed her fears to her mom Catherine.

“Kate could feel her mom’s anger and full eyes on her while she spoke up.”
Do not tell me you are planning to keep this again, Catherine finally calmed herself down and asked. No, I will, but not now please. Kate said in fear.

Just make sure you do soon, because I can’t help you with this baggage now that you are married, you need to learn how to solve your own issues. Mom finally advised her daughter. Thanks mum. How are you not so very angry this time, well because I always knew!

Huh! Yeah right, Kate. Your mother knows everything, Catherine said and both mother and daughter laughed.
*****

At least say something about the house, if you do not like it I start looking for a new one, I remember you sitting me down about this same house the last time. Nectar tried to control his anger when it seemed like Kate has changed her mind after several weeks of trying to get through to her.

Look gentle man, am trying to be calm right now, just to adjust to the fact that am stuck with you now. So do not provoke me, whichever environment you think your children should stay that is fine with me.

My children? “Nectar quickly repeated what Kate said with his full gaze now directed to his wife.” I mean, am stuck here with you so, whatever the patern… paternity of these innocent ones are do not really matter. Kate said.

“Right or you do not want to be a father to them anymore. Kate carefully defended herself whiles constantly checking nectars reaction.”

No do not take it that way; I want to, if you will let me. Nectar said succumbing to Kate’s statement. Good then, when can we move in. Kate chipped in.

I just need to make some payments. Give me two weeks’ tops. Nectar said! You do not have money? Kate sighed. I just want to make this investment with some other resource, so please bear with me. Nectar apologized.

********

Sorry, I was rude the last time when you girls came by, that is fine Kate, does that mean we are even now. Kate said shyly, to both Annette and Eve.


“Not a chance”, Kate retorted back to eve’s question but I think whatever bitterness I hold its almost over. Kate said to clear the air.

We were talking when Matts came home, haven’t seen her in a while. Is there a meeting I do not know of? We turned to her direction, hello Katie are you okay, Matts asked? So innocent like those days, Kate thought!

“Kate are you listening at all, a drink up next weekend”, the girls chorused.

You all know I cannot drink now, and besides we are moving from here to our new place, i will therefore be busy; Kate managed to throw her friends off her back. Katie did you just make an excuse not to hang out with us. Eve asked.

You know what; we will come help you move. I heard Annette say. Good, just then my next nightmares entered. “Hey ladies, I can see you having fun”. Eve you look good in your attire; I can see marriage is doing wonders for you huh. Nectar said and walked away.

They all laugh except me, and Kate found that annoying, as soon Kate’s friends left. Kate confronted nectar!

What was that all about earlier? Kate asked nectar. What are you talking of? Nectar pretended not to know what she was referring to.

I mean you were flirting with my friend in my presence. Really Kate, are you jealous now? Nectar found her question amusing. Me! No, forget it. Kate tried to hide her jealousy. Do your worse, Kate said and got herself washed up. During bedtime, I saw him fidgeting with his hands on the couch.

Gentle man, you are making noise, why do you keep turning up and down. I can’t sleep with that noise, am restless already. Kate asked nectar who keeps murmuring stuffs to himself from a distance and makes a lot of noise with his body against the couch.

“Sorry, I have aches all over lying on one side all the time, all the best, Kate said and tried to sleep.”

Look, I did not sack you from here, you decided to move there yourself so it is either you get over your pride and come over to bed or you go and sleep elsewhere, you are distracting my sleep.

Nectar just picked up his pillow and went out, I cared less. “Kate thought to herself”

Kate, I don't want to poke my nose in your marriage but saint was in my room yesterday. Matts asked her brother’s wife over morning coffee.

“Did you sleep with him too”? Kate rubbed the past once again in matts face. Katie, I thought we are over the past now. Do you have to rub it in my face every now and then? Matts asked rather angrily.

EPISODE 40

Did you guys have a fight Katie, I worry because am responsible for his recovery since he got back from Germany, but you are in this with him now, I think you should know. Matts asked with so much worry.

Anything out of the extraordinary you let us know. Matts was sounding so scary now. Is there something else you are not telling me here Matts, I will not be of much help if am not aware of what I have married.

How do I handle it, Matts? Kate further probed when she realized matts was not ready to open up.

You know he is my stress; I could barely handle his childish behavior, so talk to me. Any mental problem, is he harmful? "Kate said so loud now to draw matts attention".

Katie, how could you refer to a human being that way, I know you don’t love him but please, He is nothing like that; he only has sleepless nights, with the memories rushing back in. Matts narrated quickly with regrets enveloping her face.

Thank God, that I can handle and I did not sack him. He left the room on his own ask him why? Kate assured Matts. Sorry I lashed out on you, matts also replied.

“Katie sorry I was just concerned”. The girls are coming over to help pack up today, hope you don’t mind, matts asked Kate.

We moved in our own apartment, three blocks from my old house, that I was grateful. The time with the girls was a success, “though they keep talking too much”. Kate thought to herself.

I was sleeping throughout; nectar was doing the heavy lifting, which I admired with the corner of my eyes, all sweaty and shirtless. “I smiled to myself in between my thoughts”. Then I realized I was pretending to be sleeping when I was actually thinking about my husband’s shirtless body.

I woke up at a point and the girls were gone. Kate, I managed to cook, you can try if you don’t like then we go out for dinner, I heard nectar say.

Am not sure I want to eat any sick food, besides am not hungry. Of course I didn’t say that aloud.

I just want to sleep, I managed to take the insults off my mind and then said something appreciative to nectar; okay I will join you soon, nectar replied.

Your stuffs are in the other drawer, I found myself admiring the outcome of the room. What else is nectar not good at, I murmured to my belly.

Admiring my yet protruded belly, these twins are doing a number on me, I spoke to no one in particular one early morning while still laying on my bed like a lazy girl. I keep sleeping off at work, and everywhere. “Kate was still in deep thoughts when nectars voice startled her”.

Your breakfast is in the microwave; will you want to take it in bed? Nectar said softly to his wife. You don’t give up right, is today not Saturday, why are you not at work? Kate questioned nectar with anger.

If I need food I will get to the kitchen, she said rudely again. “You do not need to stress yourself Kate; you know our children are growing fast”.

Just let me help, give me a chance please. Kate I know you don’t like me that much, but allow me to take care of you, when you put to bed, you can do whatever you want.

“I said I don’t want anything from you, what part of that phrase don’t you understand.” I couldn’t manage saying that to his face again, after seeing the sorrow look he put on earlier.

Kate, why are you so bitter towards me, I mean I married you because I like you. What do I have to do so you can cut me some slack?

I want you to leave me alone that is what I want. You men are all the same, I give you an opportunity and you end up turning my life into another mess. What shows you are different. She finally asked and tried to get out of bed.

Would you ever like me, it has been a month since we moved in together. Married for two months and you still give me this attitude; we have not even had our first night yet.

Really, so you think am a fool to sleep with you again, with this pregnancy. I don’t want to sleep with you because I met you at a bar, but because you are my wife. Nectar said rather sadly.

What wife? You forgot this is only on paper right! Kate chipped in, laughing now hilariously. I thought your dad said….Nectar was about to say something. My dad, said what? Kate interjected again.

Why am I even having this conversation with you, Kate stood up from the bed to walk out when nectar held her, and turned her around facing his face.

“I couldn’t tell what he was trying to do but we were suddenly searching each other’s eyes”. Then Kate’s phone rang, Mom I was just about to call you. She walked out and found nectar following her; she waved him a hand rudely.

***********

Keisha! Keisha! Keisha am sorry please. I woke up and found nectar rolling on the bed, sweating profusely.

For the late night readers, please manage, hopefully tomorrow i will be off work and send like 10 grin

EPISODE 41

I didn’t know what to do, was this what matt was referring to. I put on the bedside light; I then shook nectar so hard. “Kate stop thinking about his shirtless body", "Kate rebuked her mind”. How could I be thinking of that now, when I should call for help.


“He was reluctant or probably couldn’t feel my hands all over him”. It took ten minutes for the seizure to stop. I was so scared in my thoughts. Finally, I was jolted out of my worry mind when he made a hiss sound. “Kate sighed, nectar hasn’t opened his eyes but checking his pulse, he could still breathe.”


The next day, I wasn’t able to ask him about what happened, he just kept to himself, as if he had no memories of that, the attack continued for the next three days.


“Kate was beginning to get fed up with the noise, and could not figure out how to help nectar.” Matts, please can you help, it’s your brother. I think am tired of his mumbling, can you come over. Kate found herself needing matts help over the phone.

***********************MANDY

I need to get her back. She has to know the truth. I have learnt to fall in love with her.
She thinks am the bad one at the head of all this. Yes, I might have been a flirt and a cheat but I came to fall in love with her.

It was all a game at first, but my heart beats for her anytime she was around and I need to play along. I was a player. There were so many of the girls flocking on me back then.

Her kindness, despite the horrible way I treated her, her immense love changed me. I wanted to be a better person for her. Just when I was about to truly, tell her about it and declare my true feelings, hoping she forgives me.

The devil in disguise whisked me away to jail. Now am back. I have to claim my love. She has to listen to me. I have never for once forgotten her face while behind bars.

He glanced at the tinny frame in his hands with an image in it. This is what kept me going. For all the treatments, I suffered for a crime I did not commit. Mandela kept pondering over his past life with Kate.

******************

Sis what are you doing here this early. Nectar was surprised to see Matts over at our end. Did mum send you, No sai…. Nectar, Matts tried to get his name right.


I called for her, Kate carefully replied. Okay is there a problem, Nectar asked inquisitively. Nectar, women’s stuffs. Can you stay out of it please? Katie finally said getting worked out.


Am going out then, you ladies have a nice day, nectar finally walked out and we both heaved a sigh of relief. Katie how serious is it, does he have any memory of the previous nights. Am not so sure. You did not ask him.


We don’t talk, Kate replied Matts question. Matts expression changed as she tried to mouth something but kept her mouth shut, which I was grateful for.

Look am not about to discuss my marriage with you, I called you here to see to your sick brother. You are welcome to stay as long as you can.

Kate said trying to sound plain and angry. Kate, why are you so bitter, is it that bad. What happened to you. Matts found herself asking Kate questions.


I cannot begin to say I know how to fix what was broken, am not asking you to start loving again, but the way I see it, you both are perfect for each other; you need to heal each other in your own small way.


Try to accommodate him. Yes, he is sick but you can make it work. I know you so well Kate and am glad you married him. Matts tried advising her friend trying to escape his full gaze.


You are glad I married the sickness in your family right, Kate said sarcastically. Come off it, Katie. Yes, we are glad he finally wants to settle down again. I was the happiest when I found out it was you. Kate re adjusted herself in the couch after matts comments which shows she was restless.


We had our own issues, which did not stop me for approving of you Katie. Cut me some slack here, you both need each other. He is a good man Katie; just give him the benefit of the doubt. Matts keep playing the good sister trick with me.


Why should I do that? Kate retorted back to Matts, whose gaze is now fully on her.

Because you are carrying his children, If anything you help the father of your children recover and he will be there for him. Your children will equally need him someday. Matts said asking me with her eyes to trust her.

I believe you wanted the same experience yourself from your dad, but you never had. Do not deny your children that privilege to have a sane father. Do not bring my father into this Matts, but Katie you know am right. “Yes Matts is right, I told myself inwardly.”

If you were carrying another man’s children, I would gladly help with the divorce. Since nectar told me, you did not want to marry him or neither have anything to do with him, i only thought of him getting a woman who will father his children.


Then you agreed and I thought of divorce but he would not agree to it, he said he could endure your attitudes. Matts keep talking too much already; I tried signaling her with my eyes.

Now it is different, children are involved. Matts spoke her final words. So the best way you can help is, stuck I myself in this marriage, I asked her.

Besides my heart was shattered in pieces by my best friend. Nothing compared to what he is suffering from. If you have been dealing with this for 7years and he has still not recovered what makes you think, he will now. I was now in control of asking Matts my own questions.


Katie I believe he just needs someone to be there for him, someone to hold, someone probably to share his fears with and at the look of things you equally need that someone too . Matts said sensibly. I agreed she was right.


“However, was I ready to move on, when somehow my heart still yearns for he who broke it in the first place.”

See! it’s time to get over Mandy, I don't want to keep bringing his name up, but its high time you mention his name and not feel like you want to puke or droll all over him again as you are trying to do right now. You have to kill whatever force of attraction it is Katie. "Matts talks as if it is that easy". I thought to myself!


I did you a favor, if not by now, you would have married or be carrying that bastard’s children and you would have really regretted it. Then you visit him at county with his children. Matts said vehemently and now pissing me off.


Is that what you wish for yourself? She asked.

What do you mean by county? Mandy is in prison; I did not tell you every part of that woman’s story, matts continued.

However, the point is he got jail time after that innocent girl died when Mandy took her for an abortion of his child, which the girl ended up at the morgue.


I was there, I helped in the process, could not stand watching him go scot free, and leaving the mother of that girl childless was not an option, she works for me in my office canteen. That is the best I could do.


I could not help but was amazed in tears how far this woman here would go for me, she is one damn good lawyer, owns her own practice and does know what she wants.

Just then, nectar walked in, are you women gossiping about me. I just eyed him to the right; he is irritating me now with that smile on his face.

You know that how, Matts asked! My wife is in a good mood for once, nectar pointed out with a grin on his face. I pretended I did not hear that, “so this gentle man did not see me rolling my eyes earlier”. Kate thought!


“He can still see the good in me after all these attitudes, what kind of a man is he”. "Has the death of his screwed up his brain, because a man should flare up sometimes, give corrections when necessary".

Nectar obviously you have not been doing your work well, so am here to make sure you do that. Matts teased his brother.


Oh really, Kate tell her am the best husband. I looked at Matts and she was beckoning on me to respond. Fighting the urge to just give in or hold on, i took a deep breath and all that came from my mouth is am hungry. Who cares for lunch, tell me how I can help Katie, she asked.

EPISODE 42

Nectar you don’t like the food? Matts asked. Your wife cooked it for you, appreciate her and stop staring like someone who just saw a ghost. His sister cautioned further.


I just focused on my plate, but I could feel his gaze on me. Why do you keep staring, as if am stopping you from eating, Kate finally asked nectar?


Nothing Kate, he replied without a smile, we ate in silence, was this man thinking I cannot cook? Kate kept stealing glances and beaming inside, when all she wanted was a simple compliment for the food, as it was his first time cooking for him.

She was however disappointed, he didn’t get to finish all the meal. “Why was she suddenly softening up to him”, Kate thought aloud but couldn’t mouth it out.

******

OMG Matts you have not stopped this sleeping around with the so-called hairy men huh. Kate tried to remember their past. They both laughed, I cannot do without the handsome hairy men, Matt has replied.

What is funny, Kate asked! I found Matts smiling for a while. Katie you have not noticed you still remember details about me that we both just laughed at.


Then I realized we have been chatting since after dinner, like old times. Yeah, I think it is time I forgive you provided you will not do a silly thing like that next time.


Katie, just listen to me sometimes, I could be lying but what harm would it cause if you just try to find out things for yourself.

It is not as if I do not listen to you Matts, I felt you exaggerate too much, now that is over right! Matts asked. Yes, Kate replied not guessing her next question and you will give my brother a chance, No I cannot promise that matts. She rightly said quickly.


Take your time, Matts was about to continue her long speech, just then my phone rang. Drake! Is my baby sleeping already? He said with some weird tone, then Anthon spoke up, Kate Drake just got dumped, Miriam left her.


What I shouted? How! Why! I couldn’t find the right questions to ask because I met the girl Miriam, she doesn’t look like someone who would dump Drake soon. Because of you Kate, I finally heard James say.

What did I do! I was surprised they were claiming I had a hand in that. Do not be dumb woman; Drake has been in love with you like forever, am surprised you have not noticed. Anthon said.


No way, I found it amusing, Drake are you there, is that true! You love me, are you being real. I kept asking quickly. It seems he went off, James said. Have a good night; try to call him, both men said.


Katie what is it, who is in love with you, that was when I realized I was in deep thoughts. Katie are you okay! Matts asked this time with a loud tone. Yes, matts, it’s one of my friends, you saw him at the wedding.


Drake! I learnt he is in love with me. Mom said this sometime ago but I felt she was just exaggerating. Do you love him? Matts asked taking me off guard. Yes, I mean yeah we are friends, so definitely as a friend.


Well it seems he does more than that, if what you said about him leaving his girlfriend because of you, I think you should find time and talk to him; you know you are married right.

Matts couldn’t wait to remind me of my worst nightmare. Yeah, I have no plans of getting out for the sake of my children, I replied trying not to get offended.

Can I borrow my wife; nectars voice startled us both! Sure why not bro! I think I want to sleep now.

Matt’s gave me a peck, hey sis be careful, and that is my wife there, nectar said and his smile disappeared following my will you shut up gaze I dropped on him.


I know, it is just a harmless peck, they both laughed but I was deep in thoughts and asking myself what I should do. Kate can we talk, what about! You always have a way of ruining moments. Be on your own, I lashed out.


As if I saw tears in nectars eyes, I just had to say something, which I obviously don’t mean. I mean Matts is right, he is the father of my children.

Okay fine, am sorry I snap at you all the time but truth be told, you are too nice to me which I obviously don’t deserve.


Well maybe I deserve it but I cant tell what your intentions are. I finally managed to say and before he could reply I interrupted. What do you want to discuss?


He took a step back and forward, then back. Wanted to find out if we can start shopping for the children, he said happily. It is too early, father of the season, unless you do not think so. Kate chipped in.


If you say so, he was about to leave when Kate said to set the date while she tries to be available since she has to work next week throughout.


He just rushed towards me, at first I thought he was picking something up and then I felt his mouth on mine. I just heard myself saying stop it so loud and pushed him on the floor.


What was that all about, I said wondering why I was angry over a harmless kiss. Am sorry Kate. I was just excited. Nectar said annoying me more.


Look you had better start behaving like a grown up, as I have decided to get stuck with you in this marriage.


I walked pass him towards our room and I saw matts rushing to pick him up. Nectar are you okay, just give her some time, she will come around, Pregnancy hormones are also part of her stress. I heard Matts say calmly.


I woke up to the side of my bed empty, I careless but I was worried within me since I pushed him earlier. That was wrong Kate, “I keep hearing a voice struggling in my mid”.


I guess I never slept at all; I went downstairs and met him lying on the couch with his head on Matt’s. Then I heard the murmurings again, walking closer I saw matts pointing to a towel in water, I just handed it over to her, fear gripped me, and I thought the pushing triggered something.


Because the last time it happened, we had some intense argument. Matt’s did this happen because of the push. Nobody could ever tell what triggers it. Matts said with her avoiding my gaze.


What are you talking about, Katie he has no an idea he experiences this? He has no memories! You never told him. Why? I questioned Matts, stealing glances towards nectar still not responding to Matts touch.


Katie, we tried but since he has no memories of that, we just let it slide hoping it would stop someday, when is that someday, Matt’s he needs to know?


I agree, as he needs to know about his children. Matts is being sarcastic now. This is not the right time to discuss his children. He cannot know about his children when he is having some weird attack you all did not deem it fit to tell me about before I married him.


What if it is hereditary, I cannot have two children with a mental ishh, then help me Katie, let us try to make this marriage work.


I agree he needs help; I looked at the dejected body lying before me, he looks so innocent, what could have happened, was his first marriage that bad. I kept asking myself, until we retired to bed when the worse was over.

Gentle man good morning, you slept on the couch. May I know why? As if he was confused, he kept looking around.

“I just needed to try another approach, I may not be ready to succumb to whatever he feels for me but I can as well try. I advised myself”.

Looking for Matts, I asked, and then nectar nodded! She has a job remember. Oh, yes, he replied so lively.

Breakfast is on the table, which I did not hesitate to give out a smile to his surprise look. I need some sleep, which I had to fake just to avoid another talk with him.

Call me if you need anything, I was about to take a step forward when he grabbed my hand, he said sorry and dropped my hands quickly; Only God knows the surge that went through my body.

I quickly had to brush it aside, blaming it on the hormones. I want to apologize for yesterday; I should not have done that Kate. Knowing well you detest men who are in love with you.

Have you been checking up on me? I asked him. No Kate, I just happen to know you quiet well for these few months. He said making a face as if trying to remember something.

I was dumfounded, how he could read my thoughts vividly and I barely know what he thinks. He was walking away, gentle man, am sorry about yesterday, the fall and everything, Thanks, that is fine, I understand. He said all bubbly.

“How is this man so calm after that great fall”, I was thinking when my mum’s thoughts came to mind?

*********

Mum are you okay, please I want to come over. What is it baby? Mum I do not know how to handle this. Exactly what are you not able to handle? This marriage, these whole nectar attitudes. Mom he is so good to me but I can’t seem to see pass that, I am always angry at even the nicest things he does for me.


Am not like that with my guys, I don’t treat them rudely but for Nectar, I don’t know. My heart is so hardened anytime I see him.

I don’t know how to handle him; he keeps doing everything right, am too broken to see that and acknowledge his presence. I can’t be fixed mom. Kate keeps narrating for a whole ten minutes.

I was in my mom’s arms crying, which she constantly smooched my back slowly. Baby it is okay; you will figure it out soon. Take it easy, one-step at a time.

The best thing is to talk to him, sit him down. Tell him to give you some time. Probably you can start with the fact he is the father of your twins that might make things better.

Mom, am scared of letting someone in again, I know my dear. Mom said but my mind was roaming all over my decisions lately.

EPISODE 43

You don’t have to let him in, just try to tolerate him and let the rudeness go, I mean treat him like your friends; you do not detest them as you do to Nectar, probably because you fell in love with him without knowing it. Mom is sounding weird now.

No mom, I know am not in love, maybe because he loves me rather, I struggled to say. I hate people declaring their feelings for me mom, you will figure it out but Mom how do you do it.

I mean you can see Dad doesn’t love you but you are still here, whatever happened to your Dad and me, I don’t want that to affect you Kate, already I can see that getting into your head Kate.

I want you to enjoy your marriage, so talk about it with him, thank you mom, but I need to get going now.

Gentle man, are you not coming home tonight, I spoke to him calmly over the phone. He sounded surprised, as I have never called him since we got married.


Kate, are you okay! Do you need help? Nectar asked inquisitively. No, I came home and wanted us to talk about something but you were not around. Moreover, it is getting late too! Kate managed to just close her eyes and speak.


Kate are you worried about me! Nectar asked. “What a stupid question to ask, my mouth may run so wild, my heart so hardened but my brain still works perfectly”. I care with my mind. I was thinking aloud again, when I realized he was still waiting for my answer.


What if I am worried about you! Kate said finally, feeling a strange coldness suddenly coming over her. Well I don’t think that is a problem, besides probably you have not noticed I have been working late nights lately. Nectar said annoying me.


I just want to know if you are coming home soon, I replied calmly. Am not sure, but I will try? Is Matilda there with you? He said and I felt disappointed.


She is not back either, okay give me thirty minutes. I will be there soon, he said and I hanged up. I kept walking from one corner to another, and then my phone rang.


Katie am not coming home tonight. I got one hairy dude. Matts so it’s you, get a life, I am here waiting for your brother, I planned on telling him about the children this evening.


Really, am coming home, wait for me. Matts said so excited. I thought you said something about sex and hairy dude tonight. Come on, I won’t miss your drama for anything in this world, Sex can wait. She said so bratty.


But Matts, am really scared! What about Katie. I don’t know but what if he hurts me. Oh commom, nectar wouldn’t dare lay a hand on a woman twice.

But Matts a revelation like this can make people do unimaginable things. Kate said with so much worry in her voice. Katie please relax, then wait for me, so we tell him together. No Matts, this is my own cross to carry, besides am already a dead meat whether I tell him or not.

Just then, I heard nectars car pull in the compound. Fear gripped me and instantly I started sweating profusely.

The coldness earlier has vanished. My brain I felt was overheating due to the many ideas popping up as to how to start the conversation about his children.

I did not understand why am afraid of letting him know the truth. It is not like we can call what we have marriage, we are practically leaving like friends. Now my mind is coming back to it’s rude state again.

Am sure, it’s just my hormones or i am still scared he might hurt me, by the time he entered I was on the floor, I woke up with feeling a bump to my head.

What happened I asked him? You collapsed. Do you feel pains anywhere, nectar asked. No just a headache. That will be over soon, once you eat and take your medicines.


And you need to start seeing that doctor we talked about, I mean today Kate! Nectar said stressing the his voice.

I just responded okay, finally you are awake matts said, your food is here. What happened Katie, were you able to do the stuffs we talked about? I shoved my eyes at nectar.


Nectar, can you excuse us for a minute. Matts said! Really, he said and Matts frowned. What happened Katie; I should be asking you that Matts.

I woke up here, I just remember your brother pulling into the compound and that was it. I also saw nectar attending to you when I got home.
He has not told me anything Katie. I think I can’t do it Matts. Why not Katie, you are stronger than you think. If I know my brother, so well he will forgive you.


I think I need time, to adjust to his likeness to me first, and then we can take it from there. Kate suggested. Okay, take your time; have you talked to that friend yet, Matts asked! Drake? No, I will soon, I replied honestly.

“I hate men who love me, and am not about to lose a friend because he loves me”.

Are you girls decent, should I come in? Nectar stop fooling around, this is your room, matts said looking through the door. Kate you have not touched your food that much, has Matilda added too much salt to the Oats, he asked trying to make a joke.


Huh nectar, she is fine. I looked on while brother and sister gave each other their weird looks. I need to give you some injections Kate.

My eyes popped out, and met with that of Matts. Emmm, I think I don’t need injections, I prefer the tablets. I was scared of going all nude in front of this man when I really wish I had. “I hit my head with my palm, trying to reset it”. Of late, it spews out unimaginable feelings. That’s just my hormones I reassured my mind.


Kate, you need this injection , he tried to convince. Nectar I think what your wife is referring to is can you give that injection anywhere aside her bums.

Ooh that, yeah the shoulders. He said with a relief on his face. I was surprised how Matts knew what my problem was.

Right there done, you can have some rest now, and he walked out. Matts how did you know? I know when you are acting weird you have something up your sleeves.


You two have not done it yet. I cant believe matts is asking me that right now. What? Sex? Nope! He has seen you Unclad before! She further asked. Yeah when I was drunk, I have no memories though, am pregnant from that now.


Just one shot and you are pregnant with twins, what will happen to two shots, you will give us a football team. Matts teased and we both laughed.

********

Kate you wanted to speak to me, nectar asked. How could he be asking that now when I was thinking he forgot? I said silently, it has been two days since the incident.

It’s fine, I found what I wanted, and it did not look like you were looking for something when you called, he tried to challenge.


Please I said its fine, I nearly yelled. Calm down do not work up yourself up, Nectar tried to convince me he wasn’t bothered. By the way I hope I am fit enough to work tomorrow, I asked.


Are you sure you can handle it, am not weak gentle man, your secretary can handle that for you. Nectar chipped in. You know am trying so hard to talk to you now and tolerate the anger that is burning in me. I said with a warning eye.


I can see that Kate, but I just want the best for you and the children. Forgive me if am over stepping my bounds. He was about to leave when I just had to say something again.


Am sorry, it came out the wrong way. I will try to slow down and cut on the working hours provided you pay my secretary her overtime. I feigned a smile. He just gave me some weird look and walked out like a child.

*********

Matts would you accompany me drakes place. Sure why not. What are you doing here; he struggled and stumbled to walk.

Drake have you been drinking, what is wrong with you. Kate inquired. Bring that bottle, do you want to drink yourself to death, I asked.


What do you care Kate, you decided to leave me for that good for nothing sick man? Hey watch your mouth; you can’t talk about my brother that way. Matts interjected. Ooh, you are the bitch sister who broke a poor girl completely.


Drake keep quiet, I yelled. Matts lets go, am sure when he finishes drinking himself to waste he would come around. I banged the door in his face and we drove off. Sorry about my friend out there.


That is fine, he is just a gentle man in love, and I would always be that bitch who slept with her best friends fiancé. Matts said as if the reality is now dawning on her.


Kate just glared and she drove on in silence, and keeping using different routes, which does not lead to home in anyway.
Matts, where are we going, Keep your head down and hold still. By the time I realized she took a very drastic turn on a busy road swerving a gunshot.


What was that? I yelled almost running out of breathe. Look into the side mirror they are still following us. Matts managed to say after we escaped that gunshot. I sensed someone was tailing us since we left drakes end, she finally spoke up when we managed to lose them and drove somehow home.

You are back. I cooked! Nectar greeted with a grin. Am not hungry, I said to his question and walked out on both brother and sister.

I heard a knock on my door, and nectar came in. Someone left this in the mail for you. What is it? He passed an envelope to me.

And I heard you were attacked earlier, I called your Dad. Huh, what for? You think my dad gives a damn about what happened to me. Grow up! I said so calmly.

But I just thought, he has the connections with the cops to look into what kind of danger you are in. He said naively. Good Luck with my dad then.

I quickly took the envelope from him and tore it open because the handwriting on it looked familiar, then the contents itself confirmed my deepest fear.

I just tore it apart, and looked away when our gazes met, are you okay Kate. Why do you ask, do I look like am dying. I said regrettably.

Yes, you tore that envelope apart as if you have just seen a ghost, sorry if I intruded again, was just trying to help. When I thought we were finally at a good place in this marriage, Nectar said playing on my conscience and walked away sadly.

Who brought this letter? I rushed down to matt’s room.
