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.

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.
