Hello Katie, only one person calls me that, my best friend among the three of them. Haven’t heard that name in four years, what the hell does she want.
Katie are you there. I just want us to talk please. I quickly hanged up, “I mean what is there to talk about”.
Matilda was the closest of my three friends, every little of my secrets; she gets to hear about them before the other two girls. I was broken when she betrayed me that way.
Getting to work, I learnt from my secretary, one Mr. Glover has been calling to make an appointment. “I asked myself what nectar wanted this time”. Just then, my intercom rang and my secretary buzzed me in.
Mr. Glover is on line two for you Miss; I took a deep breath and answered. Hello, before I could burst out with my insults, he blurted out.
I don’t know what my son sees in you but he is so sure he wants this marriage to happen. Can you meet me at 12pm for lunch, my house? Am sure you can find your way.
I was not able to object or say a word before he went off the line. Thinking about it, I have to meet this man and tell that family my mind.
Since he does not agree to this wedding, he might help convince my dad. The problem now is how I would get his location; I just have to call dad. He would only insult me.
Mum has no idea where the Glovers live and Dad is not answering either. I cannot call the devil himself. Stacy, call Nectar Glover on this number, after calling out his number to my secretary.
I told her to let him know its urgent so I needed the direction, I haven’t been able to figure out how nectar got my number the last time, but am glad now he did, which will help me sort out this thing once and for all.
I do not know what happened but I got myself to the Glover residence after I got the direction from Stacy.
Hello sir, I want to apologize for my behavior the last time, I was in a bad place with my dad then. Well I still do not agree to my son marrying you! That is what I want too! I quickly chipped in.
However, my son will not back down, even after knowing he might be raising somebody else’s baby. I felt embarrassed, but did not want to show my stubbornness again.
Moreover, he keeps ranting about the fact that you are carrying his baby. No sir, this child is mine alone, am sure he is just paranoid. Please speak to my dad so he cancels this wedding plan.
Am sorry Miss, I love my son, in as much as I do not want him marrying you. I cannot decide for him, what makes him happy. He has been through a lot already so if he says you are the one, who am I to reject you?
What about my own happiness then, well work out your own salvation? Wedding is in a month, take it or leave it. Your dad wants it done soon.
I just got so angry, confused and stormed out of there without a word. I drove straight home, walked in on my parents sitting on different beds.
Dad can we talk? He just looked at me for a second, am sure he saw the tears in my eyes. Mum, can you please excuse us? Dad I know you would have so wished mummy was alive I understand I killed her. It was a tough decision to make back then, the love of your life, or your child.
And I believe you loved me when you choose me, why then are you so angry with me. You always forget I lost a mother too, so you are not the only one who lost someone. But am the innocent one here, I could just leave this house and never see you again, but am still here hoping you will change soon.
Most especially, I cannot leave mum behind, she will not leave with me because she loves you too much and cannot leave you attending to your own needs.
Cancel this wedding; I will do whatever you want. Get married rather, and I will treat that murderer of a mother right. Okay I will get married, but not to that man, I mean I do not even like the man.
