I want to marry a man of my choice, Okay I give you two weeks to bring that man of your choice, if you do not your wedding with nectar will push through. You know I still have the pictures; you don’t want to see your face all over the internet right?
For once, my dad spoke to me without venom in his voice. Mum was standing behind the door when I came out.
Am sure you heard everything, Mum leave with me, and there are men out there that will adore you, unlike my dad. Baby, you will never understand, I cannot leave.
Mum I do not want to get married, I said amidst tears. Then don’t! She said cuddling me but he will maltreat you. Kate, your dad I can handle, I have stayed with this man long before you came to this world.
So you mean you cannot do this for your baby girl right, Kate, you are everything I have. I love you; do you think I have not done enough digging on this nectar? I shoved her an ugly look.
If I thought he was a bad man I would gladly leave with you, but my dear, I met the man over a long talk during the weekend; he has genuine intentions for you.
He loves you, of course, you do not but you may want to consider marrying him. No man will want to agree to marry a woman carrying another man’s child unless he think that child is his or he probably love you too much.
Mum I cannot believe you are also siding with dad on this, am not my dear. If you do not want to fine, but do not stay in this house because you think am been treated unfairly.
You cannot waste your time here with me, am already old, and I want seven grandchildren. That part cracked me up and I smiled.
And your child needs a father, you of all people should understand that. If your Dad were different, am sure your child would have a better home and father here. Every child needs a father in their lives especially girls.
Mom I do not know the gender yet. Yes, I know but that child needs a father. You do not want him or her growing up asking you too much questions as you do all the time. Give him a good home my dear.
Just then, grams walked in on us, for once this step mum of yours made a little sense. Grams you also want me to marry that man.
Yes, or any other man you want raising your child. Unfortunately, my sons disrespect towards my suggestions are irritating me so I could not convince him further.

As it stands now, you can’t keep holding on to your past, bring another man home if you so don’t like the other guy.
The next day, I visited Drake and luckily, the two others were there. James, will you marry me as soon as possible? He nearly choked on his drink.
What Kate, I narrated everything to them, just then Anthon said drake won’t you marry her. I mean you always wanted to, I was lost as to what they were talking about, and he just smiled and gave a cheeky answer.
Kate are you for real. I can marry you, I mean pretend to, drake finally said. Drake you think my dad is not smart enough to know we are pretending.
Besides I do not want to destroy your love life with your girlfriend, she will not understand.
What if you marry the man on contract basis, Anthon said? How I asked, you can talk to him, am sure if he loves you, he would not want to lose you for a year.
Anthon this your suggestions, I do not want to end up tied down. He is right Kate; drake finally spoke up, in a weird way. Call him up and discuss that with him.
I quickly called him up through my secretary the next day for lunch, which he claimed he had a life to save so we should reschedule.
I was home a few weeks later, when my mum announced he was waiting for me downstairs. I rushed down in my pajamas, just to meet my dad sitting there chatting with him.
Young girl, will you go back and put on something appropriate. Yes, Kate, you should besides we are going out to have that talk now, nectar said.
I rolled my eyes and went up to change; I did not understand why I rushed down in my pajamas in the first place.
I finally came down after what looked like hours, so put on a proper dress and you dress as if you are standing by the roadside waiting for your clients as usual, was that what kept you in there that long?

Kate, ur dad shouldn’t be too stubborn with the manner he treats u and ur step mom even though “to him” he sure knows what he’s doing. But if he did pushed too far “Had I Known” would be his greatest song ever.
@bella thanks dear, I’m really liking it in here.0August 16, 2017 at 8:30 pm #1060357
Dad am tired of you calling me names all the time, I cannot tell what was on nectar’s mind. I bet I saw him smiling earlier.
Go up and change that dress, I just adjusted my purse and walked pass him. I looked back and asked, if you are done gossiping with my dad, then you come out.
I saw both shaking hands hurriedly, while my dad nodded his head. Nobody spoke a word for a while until he spoke up.
For what it’s worth, I had no problem with the pajamas, I would pay anything to see you in that every evening, and I totally love your outfit right now.
I just glanced at him and then looked back on the road. Where are you taking me to, you have been driving like ages, am tired already.
Sorry, we will be there in the next five minutes. Soon we arrived at one of my favorite joints, I love the seafood here, I exclaimed happily while he stared, then I realized I was happy he did something right.
Okay can we go in now, yeah sure? Wait let me get the door, he said.
We finally found ourselves in one corner. Serve my lady anything she wants; I will take whatever she takes.
And no alcohol please. Then I remembered I am double now, I murmured thank you to the waitress.
Whiles we wait on our food, let me hear why you wanted to meet. And am sorry, I had a surgery so couldn’t make it earlier.
He made to say something again but I interrupted, you know I do not like you right, and my family seem to think you are good for me.
However, am too young to get married, and am not ready to bear a burden of another. I will agree to a contract marriage, for a year, until I figure out how to help my mum out of that house.
We both can pretend we have a love triangle or whatever you want to call it, but I don’t want to be tied down to you.
Kate why do not you like me; I mean aside sleeping with you when I know I should not have; I have not done anything wrong.

Interesting story… Well done bella0August 16, 2017 at 11:15 pm #1060483
Yeah, I can sue you for rape you know; common you are a big girl. You actually consented to this before you even got tipsy; I had you saying yes on record.
I bet you enjoyed every bit of it; you could not stop moaning one person’s name though. At this point I fuming inside, why is he so cool about sleeping with a total stranger.
Who is Mandela, He asked! what the hell? I retorted, just then, our order came in. I stared at the food for a while, because I feel nauseous at the mention of that name. Kate are you okay, you do not like the food so we change it.
You know what take me home right now. But wait, you haven’t touched your food, will you shut up and take me home or I find my way.
Am sorry, I was sure people might be staring but I just want to get out of there fast. The drive home was so silence that he only spoke after dropping me home.
I agree. To your contract thingy, your own terms. Draw it down, how you want it and let me know. I just tried to look back which I was not able to until I walked straight ahead inside.
This time my dad was not waiting for me on the couch, I sighed and went straight to bed. Playing the events of the evening in my head.
I actually woke up late the next day with a message popping up on my phone.
I do not know where to start, but I ruined our dinner, sorry can I make it up to you anytime soon.
I tossed the phone in my laundry bag and went straight inside to take a shower. I needed to clear my mind.
Just then, my dad came in when I was not even done with dressing myself up. Gosh Dad, Can’t you knock, I hope you start treating mum right, since I have agreed to marry your protégé.
Young girl, give me the list of people you want to invite for the wedding so I get the cards printed out.
