There is something they are hiding from you0August 15, 2017 at 7:05 pm #1059710
Get the hell out of my face. I rushed to my room, and amidst tears, I called grams. Grandma Jane, I need answers, can you come and visit soon? I could not stop crying and I hanged up.
My grand mum Jane is a much reserved person, I remember the many times she visited she did not get along with mum that much, I could feel the tension. Which type of family is this I belong to anyway, I said aloud while helping mum in the kitchen, she just nodded her head.
Just then I heard the door bell, I quickly went to open, just to see drake smiling sheepishly at the door as if I just made a joke.
What are you doing here; you were supposed to be with your siblings for vacation. Look oo, can’t I visit a friend anymore, at least someone cares enough to bring your favorite coffee. See you oo come in. Okay Mum. We both laughed, then my mum came out to greet.
We talked for the whole morning and he even waited for lunch, I saw him off to his car and run back in.
That man looks like he is interested in you, mum said after I came back from escorting drake. Who? Him! Drake? Yes, my dear, no way mum. We are close friends; there is no way he can be in love with me.
Mum don’t let your love for dad cloud your judgments, besides am not capable of ever loving again. Who are you to judge yourself harshly like that, am sure you are still hurt from what happened the last time, so I understand.
You will soon find love, trust me like you found Dad, I retorted. Kate don’t push words into my mouth, mum why do you always avoid the topic.
She just hugged me so tight, taking me by surprise; you know I love you right. Yes, mum, then trust me, I am old enough, I can handle it.
Just then Grandma Jane entered with dad, we were so engrossed with whatever we were discussing that we did not notice when the door got opened until we heard her voice asking HANDLE WHAT?

Oh grams, you startled us, come here my dear. How are you here now, when my only daughter calls, I had to rush here.
I miss you so much, and then I saw my mum trying so hard to either stand up or sit down. Finally, she stood up, Good day mummy.
How was your trip? Let me help you, she made to take her luggage but she declined, I just faked a smile.
Grams let mum help you, so you can rest, I took her bag and gave it to mum. Which she rushed towards the guest room, to the detest of grams.
Grams settled for a while we had so much talk on why she doesn’t visit anymore. Until dinner was ready, at dinner I realize the whole table was quiet, Grams was staring at me.
I could not fathom why, I finally decided to talk to her about what is going on with dad whiles we sat on her over-sized bed, and she blurted something out which at first I thought I was in a trance.
Kate, did you hear what I said, Are you pregnant? Is that why you called me here so I talk to your Dad? Grams said while staring in my eyes with both of hands on my shoulders.
Ermm, I managed to find my voice, Grams am not pregnant? Besides, it has been four years since i slept with a man.
Are you saying you got pregnant by a woman? Grams, I cannot be pregnant. Are you sure because your body is saying something else, then I remembered I slept with nectar 4 weeks ago.
What I shouted, I quickly rushed out of her room. Met mum and dad sitting downstairs, I shoved them an eye and rushed out in my car.
I kept buzzing to the security; will you open this gate now? He came out trying to get the sleep out of his eyes, ten minutes later, I saw myself in front of the pharmacist.
Tell me am I pregnant? Miss I believe you have to take a test for me to know that. Then let us get the d--n test done, I yelled.
What looks like about five minutes, I was ushered in a room, where she handed me some kits.

The pharmacist instructed me on what to do, few minutes after, she told me the worse news I could ever hear.
You are pregnant Miss, though I cannot tell how long you are already, but you are pretty much going to have a baby soon. Congratulations!
I never knew I was this strong, how I carried myself from the pharmacy to my house; I was not able to tell. I was in deep thoughts, when I entered the house, and I heard my dad yelled.
Who is the father of that bastard you are carrying, that was the last thing I heard, until the next day. I woke up to my worried mum, and grams sitting by my bedside. They sighed finally she is back. Then the events of yesterday came rushing in.
The pregnancy, my dad’s annoying voice. When I felt my legs quivering and my mind and body shutting down. I figured I might have collapsed, that was the only reason they are staring at me, so I did not even ask.
Kate are you okay, mum was examining my whole body, and grams smiling. Dad walked in few minutes later, has she said anything about the bastard she’s carrying.
Grams shoved her an ugly face, Common Wilson Santa, this is your daughter lying here. If she is carrying a bastard, then you have a bastard grandchild too, so mind your words.
Mum stay out of this, how many times have I warned this bastard of a daughter to stop sleeping with everything? Am sure she does not know who the father of that bastard is, she should get ready to leave my house with that thing she is carrying. Like mother like daughter, he hissed!
Then my mum flared up, Wilson, I won’t stand you insulting my daughter that way, am sure you are trying to tell me I conceived after been raped. If you know, you were not responsible for Kate why then are you still keeping us here.
Grams just exclaimed, oh please, have you ever seen a labor ward, what you are to Kate is just a step mum.

I do not even know why my son here insists on keeping you in here in the first place. I was not sure what mum and dad was talking about, but for grams, I know she will jump at every opportunity to rub it in mummy Catherine’s face who she really is to me.
I was surprised though my mum finally defended herself that way. Catherine Wilson may not be my biological mum, but she has been there from the very beginning.
I remember when I was 18, I overheard, mum and dad quarrelling over telling me she wasn’t my mum which she insisted its time I know the truth. Then I walked in on them, Mum am not sure, I really mind if you are not my biological mum.
So can you please stop fighting with dad already? She just looked at me and gave me a tight hug. Since then, nothing has changed. I finally yelled!
Could you all get out of my room, find a place and throw your blows. All three looked at me surprised and walked out, mum tried coming back but I told her I want to be alone.
I was surprised to see drake peeping in my room later in the evening, come in already, you gossip, I managed to say with a smile.
Who let you in, and what are you doing here, are you not supposed to be at work? Common Kate, too many questions at a time, I will go straight to the point then.
Is it true? Is what true? I asked him.Do not play dumb with me girl, your mum called, so I know everything. He was talking like a jealous boyfriend and the smile I saw on his face earlier when I have not yet told him its true am pregnant for that person from the bar suddenly vanished.
He just retorted, this is all my fault, we shouldn’t have gone to that bar, why was he reacting that way. I could not figure out why he keeps blaming himself, Drake, I called with tears in my eyes, its fine. I will be fine, so are you going to keep it, he said hugging me to calm me down.

Hmmmm… Am speechless0August 15, 2017 at 8:27 pm #1059759
I released myself from him, what else do you want me to do, Kate you do not even know the dude you slept with, how are you going to explain to your child who his dad is?
Then it dawned on me, I have not even told my friends yet, the same person from the bar is my supposed husband. Why did I keep that little detail away from them, it is not as if I want to marry the dude!
Drake look, there is no way am going to abort this baby, at least, I had no plans for men again so this should be my legacy. I thought and found myself smiling. What is so funny, I think I want to keep this baby. He fumed for a while, and then he finally said your mum wants you to eat, she is so worried about you.
Then I remembered I asked them out earlier, she might be worried by now. I called her from my phone, Mum can I eat now. Within some few minutes she rushed up with my food, mum sorry I yelled at you earlier. I have forgiven you my dear; you are your father’s daughter, so I understand it is in the genes.
Talking of your husband. Is he around? Your father, you mean, my mum said sarcastically. I overheard him talking to Nectar earlier. What? I shouted. I hope he is not about telling that fool, am pregnant.
Then drake who I completely forgot was in the room, asked who nectar is, my mum quickly told him the man I was supposed to marry.
He already knows that mum, but I did not know he had a name of a plant. We all laughed, Oww Kate, that’s a good thing, at least that will make him back off from marrying you. Drake said as if trying to remember something.
We all agreed. Drake left later on after several chit chats.
I had a talk with my granny, I pleaded she should tell me why my dad behaves like that towards me. Your dad is just angry he had to choose between you and the love of his life when the accident happened, the doctors made him understand it’s either you or your mum, in as much as he wanted to choose life for your mum, he had to let you live after several pleas from Claudia, to let you live.
So that means he is angry he had to choose me over her and grams, you should have stopped him from choosing me.
