‘How is our pregnant wife?’ Matts grinned and Kate smiled shyly back.
‘I’m okay.’ Kate grinned this time beautifuly.
‘Come and have a seat here.’ Matt’s signaled her. ‘The way you are smiling, WhatsApp.’
‘Nothing, I just won a big contract from some company.’ Kate replied with a funny tone.
‘Are you sure, because you look very different.’ Matts asked curiously.
‘Oh really, you can read that on my face.’ Kate was surprised.
‘Oh yeah.’ Matts said in expectance of good news.
‘You won’t let this pass right?’ Kate asked giving up.
‘Not a chance Katie so start talking my dear.’ Matts said and adjusted herself.
‘I met with Mandy.’ Kate finally revealed.
‘What? When? Why Katie?’ Matts kept repeating short dialogues.
‘I don’t know but I just wanted to hear his side of the story. He told me a lot, which i’m yet to come in terms with.’
Kate said looking confused. She might have had a great time last nice but she is the most confused pregnant woman still battling with undying attraction towards a forbidden man.
‘I don’t know what is wrong with you. You know very well that you are addicted to the dude. I believe he took you to jerry’s bar again.’
‘Yes but just for a while.’
‘Be careful you are married.’
‘I’m careful Matt’s.’
‘So when you came home last night and rushed upstairs rudely that was where you came from.’ Matts was getting so furious now.
‘Matts relax, nothing happened. I know i’m addicted to Mandy but he didn’t get to touch me.’ Kate said with all smiles.
‘And you want me to believe you. Kate I know you and what Mandy does to you. Just a single touch and you would just succumb to whatever weird feeling you were never able to kill then.’
‘But that was then, now i…..’
‘What makes you think I believe you could resist him now?’
‘Trust me Matt’s, i’m willing to try.’
‘Just stop it now, before you hurt Nectar so badly. Focus on building your home.’ Matts paused and swallowed the saliva brewing in her mouth close to the three minutes she was talking nonstop.
‘Matts, look you are spewing all these out of proportion. I’m not a slut and very surprised you are even insinuating that.’
‘All i’m saying is you are married Katie.’
‘I know i’m married and with children too. That alone gives me the decency to respect myself.’ Kate said with her gaze on matts.
‘So he didn’t use those his flimsy tricks on you?’
‘No, though the chemistry was so strong, I controlled myself. For the first time ever I resisted Mandy in our 5 long year relationship, give me a medal for that. You know my history with Mandy more than anyone, so why doubt me now Matts.’ Kate announced like a child who just won her first volleyball match.
‘Katie that’s okay, I believe you but be careful, you might not be able to resist if you keep meeting him at secluded places.’ Matts advised.
‘So I was the left over you rushed home to sleep with and had the guts to fake an orgasm while moaning another man’s name. Kate you disgust me.’
Matts and Kate raised their head to the direction the voice was coming from. Kate wondered when Nectar came downstairs that they didn’t notice. At thesame time she couldn’t figure out how long he was standing there. Kate begun to think quickly when all of a sudden world war two started.
‘What’s going on between you two now?’ Matt’s managed to ask since husband and wife were just avoiding each other.
‘Kate, you have no respect at all and this is unforgivable. Initially I thought you actually wanted to be with me so I just brushed last night’s ordeal off but here you sit bragging about chemistry for another man who happens to be an ex-convict.’
‘Wait, di……’ Matt’s shook Kate gently while about to do her usual investigations when Nectar interrupted her.
‘Come on, think for once Kate. I thought you are beautiful so you would have brains to think for yourself. Now you just reflect the saying, beauty without brains.’
‘Nectar that’s enough.’ Matt’s cautioned.
He just ignored her sister. ‘What do I do when my wife finally decides to sleep with her ex-boyfriends all in the name of one weird attraction?’ Nectar said with so much bitterness in his voice.
He watched the two ladies angrily and was expecting them to say something but the room was as quiet as a cemetry which even angered him the more.
‘Were you punishing me for marrying you by force? You know what I actually saved you and those b******s you carry in there when i haven’t even asked who their father is.’
Nectar knew he was out of line at that moment because he saw Matt’s holding Kate so tight.
‘Your dad was right all along about you sleeping with everything in trousers and to think you claim he doesn’t like you for reasons known to him, I’m beginning to think the problem is you Kate. This your slutty and bratty attitude made your dad to treat you, whichever way he has so far.’
‘Saint?’ Matt’s finally asked.
‘Yes, don’t interfere Matilda. I just want to tell her my mind.’
‘You are speaking your mind but it’s making situations worse so stop it.’
‘Why should i stop it? Do you know the truth is Wilson actually cared enough to beg a man to marry his daughter with her b****** children. A daugther who is so ungrateful to realize how far her dad was willing to go for her because she has a big problem up there.’ He said pointing to his head.
Kate and Matts kept exchanging glances with so much regrets and worry on their faces whiles nectar kept talking.
‘I did you a favor Kate, appreciate that and stop breaking my heart all the time. A man’s patience can run for just a while and I think I’ve reached that limit.’ Nectar paused and looked on towards the direction of both Matts and Kate who just stare blankly.
Kate tried to say something but she knew she was already guilty, so she just kept quiet and watched on while nectar gave her the insults of her life and details of last night’s ordeal in so much venom in his eyes. He was trying so hard to conceal it but Kate just saw another pattern of her Dad in him, which scared her.
Words failed her and whiles Matts kept holding her hands so tight to calm her down, little did Matt’s know Kate wasn’t going to retaliate because even though she’s a brat Kate always knew when she was wrong for the wrong reasons. Besides Nectar is right, she has done enough harm when he had been so supportive so far.
He finally walked out, after staring at Kate hoping she would say something for close to two minutes. Kate just gave a loud thank God sigh.
Matt’s glared at Kate for a while.
‘You slept with Nectar yesterday because you couldn’t control the feelings from that meet up with Mandy.’
‘Matts not you too. Don’t judge me; Nectar has done enough of that already.’
‘Wow! Though i’m a little bit disappointed but i’m also happy you didn’t sleep with Mandy.’ Matts said and smiled.
‘Katie, but how could you break the poor man’s heart, by faking an orgasm while thinking about Mandy?’ Matts said trying to taunt her the more.
‘You think I wanted to do that to him.’
‘But you did my dear.’ Matt’s teased.
‘How is this funny Matts?’
‘It’s not when you were actually thinking of Mandy.’ Matt’s frowned.
‘I couldn’t even tell when I mentioned his name but I sure didn’t fake any orgasm. To tell you what, I actually enjoyed it.’ Kate revealed with a smile brewing on her left cheek. Kate spoke up.
‘Oh, wow! Does that mean you are falling in love with Nectar?’ Matts said happily.
‘Oh hell No! I just needed to sleep with someone, at that very moment and he was there. It was a perfect moment. Though I had my share of the enjoyment, I disagree if you push this on love.’ Kate said in a defending manner.
‘It seems like whatever happened between you and Nectar right now doesn’t bother you at all. I like this new Kate and so happy for you too.’ Matts said with so much honesty.
‘Thank you Matts.’
‘Was he that good?’ She further asked. She gave Kate a good wink and they laughed.
‘Matt’s..’ Kate called covering her face with her palms like a small girl.
‘Give me more gist then.’ Matts further probed with eagerness.
‘Get out of here.’ Kate pushed Matts her around.
As Kate was sitting on her bed, she was reminiscing about Nectar’s earlier outburst. She couldn’t help but feel guilty about what she did unintentionally. Memories kept rushing in from the previous night.
She remembered pushing Mandy away and the next thing, she was driving on top speed because she was experiencing feelings she thought had died. Kate didn’t want to commit adultery when she could try to control herself especially now that she was beginning to give Nectar some peace.
So when she got home, Matts was working on something whiles watching America got talent. She just waved her and said later while she rushed upstairs and nectar was not in.
Then she heard water dripping in the washroom. Kate murmured to herself perfect and rushed in there.
“Can I join you?” Kate asked! Nectar was amazed and dumbfounded. “Are you going to let me wait? Maybe I should go.” She made to leave when he pulled her back in. Kate wasn’t sure where she got that courage from.
After the deed was over, he left her embarrassed. Kate remembered she was confused and shy so her face was down all throughout his last words.
‘Do you always have to mention Mandela’s name during sex? I hope you are satisfied.’ Kate said aloud wondering why she even had to repeat Nectars words from last night.
She wouldn’t forget how her hands flung up to her mouth while he tied his towel on the waist and made out of the washroom leaving her alone in there.
She kept trying to forget the details from last night but they kept trooping in.
Kate frowned at that memory especially when she managed to get herself sorted and he was asleep when she came back from the bathroom.
She raised herself off the bed and glared towards the washroom and then smiled. Kate laid back quietly for another few minutes, trying to think about when she mentioned Mandy’s name. She certainly didn’t want to blame him for reacting that way earlier and she also have a lot to think about what Mandy said the last night.
‘What does he mean by he was planted in my life? And he fell in love with me after that. Which proof does he have and why is my dad written all over this mess.;
She raised herself up trying to dial Wilson’s number but decided against it.
‘I’m I in danger? Who is behind that emails he showed me. Could he be lying to me again? I mean he lied about his name, his family, his occupation. His whole life was a scam. How could I have fallen for one of these scammers?’
Kate asked herself regrettably and threw herself gently in the middle of the bed.
‘I wasn’t desperate for a boyfriend then when I lost the last good thing that happened to me.’ She hissed. But what happened to a handsome gentle man like Mandy to start selling himself off the internet? I wonder how many souls he has slept with all in the name of an escort.’ Kate kept asking herself questions on top of her voice since she was alone.
‘We only blame women when they do that but for Mandy to do all that he told me and still sat in my face talking about his love for me is bulls***.’ She paused. ‘But I loved him then, now i’m not sure what weird feelings I have.’ She spoke aloud.
Meeting Mandela once again had resurrected every old feelings and new ones because usually a broken woman like her would get pissed but Kate wasn’t. Kate used to curse his entire generation when he broke her heart.
Kate tried to figure out how she managed to sit close to an hour with Mandy in that bar and not burst out. She wondered what the guy has done to her because the last time she saw him was when she met that scene of Matts all over him in his house. He tried to see her several times but Kate wasn’t ready because she knew her weakness was to forgive him and sleep with him to forget everything.
Kate was that soft especially when it came to what she almost did in that bar the previous night. Mandela always had a way of making her agree to things that she didn’t want to do.
After Andy who died with a brain tumor, Mandy replaced whatever strong feelings Kate shared with Andy her ex. She would have ended up with Andy if not for the fact that life took him too early.
Kate knew she usually had strong attraction towards her men but with Nectar it was so difficult for her to see that connection.
‘Katie, open up. Drake is here to see you.’ Kate forgot she locked herself up. She ignored them for a while.
Nectar hasn’t been home for three days and she wasn’t feeling good about it either.
Looks like Matts doesn’t care either because she told Kate to give him time because he would definitly be back. But knew nothing would change when he gets back.
