Chapter 27

By : Kebby NG Media Services


“We are all eager to know Emily, tell us what happened during your wedding “she said again when it was taking long for me to answer,

“Our wedding day has nothing to do with you mom, so stop bothering my wife with your questions” Cade said

“It’s not a bad thing to want to know about the wedding day of my only son, you don’t think it’s wrong right?” She asked starring at me

“But it’s like you are trying to cover some thing up Cade, you not wanting to tell your mom about your wedding certainly means you are hiding some thing “Isabel added

If I don’t say some thing they will guess the truth, I thought, as I quickly thought of some thing

“We have nothing to hide, our wedding had a normal wedding, it was love at first sight for us , Cade and I knew that we were the one for each other and so we got married, it was a court wedding and we had done every thing legally, you have no reason to doubt our marriage because we both love each other, I love my husband a lot” I added that last part meaning every word and I didn’t see the questioning look Cade had briefly sent my way.

“But …………”

“Denise I think your question is enough, Remember that we are at the dinner table and we have a guest and Emily have answered your question, so it’s enough” Cade father said to his wife and she focused on her meal.

While every one retired to the lounge to have coffee and desert, I had excused myself and went up to our room.

Why did I say that? I thought as I walked into the room.

If Cade is smart he will guess that what I had said a while ago is true

What am I going to do now? I thought as I paced the room.

It had been a mistake to fall for him, should I call what I did a while ago a mistake too.

Just then I heard foot steps and I knew that it had to be Cade.

What am I going to say? What should I do?

The door opened to reveal Stephanie, she gave a smile as she walked into the room

“What are you doing here?” I asked

“To know if what you said down there a while ago is the truth?”She replied cooly

“It’s none of your business, so get out ” I yelled at her

“It’s true, you do love him” She said as when I didn’t reply she began laughing

“You are such a fool, all he made with you was a deal, how could you have fallen for him?” She asked

“What! You know about the deal?” I asked

“I know every thing Emily, Cade and I aren’t just lovers, we share things with each other”

“I can’t believe he told you about the deal we made “I said still shocked by what Stephanie just revealed to me

“Well he told me and I think you just made a very terrible mistake”She said

“What mistake?”

“You revealed to Cade that you are In love with him, Cade doesn’t want love in a relationship, he always make it clear to every woman he beds, am sure that he did the same with you but you being gullible you had to fall for him”

“Yes I did fall for him, so what? am not asking him to love me in return”

“Stop kidding your self Emily, Some one In love always wishes to be loved back and you also feel the same, why else would you be bothered about my presence, you were jealous when you saw Cade and I a while ago, admit it “She said

“Yes I was jealous, It hurt to see the man I love parading with his mistress” I said

“Am glad you said that because Cade will believe me now,I was right after all” She said starring at the door way

I turned to see Cade standing by the door starring at me,

“I told you right? Emily loves you and she has forgotten the deal you made with her” Stephanie said as she went to him,

“Stephanie please leave us alone” he said and she gave me an evil glare before walking off.

As soon as the door was shut I began to talk only to be silenced by the angry look on his face

“I had told you not to fall in love with me” He began slowly

“When you said you hated me , I was fine with it but now that you say you love me, I don’t think that I can be fine with it” he added

“It’s not some thing I planned Cade”I said softly

“And why would you tell Stephanie about the deal we made”I added

“The deal and Stephanie doesn’t matter right now, what matters is that you have feelings for me”he yelled at her

“They are my feelings,I will know what to do with it, I won’t burden you with it, so you don’t have to worry”I replied

“Let’s call this off!”he said suddenly.

“Call what off?”

“The deal,I will send you back to the states and we will go back to our normal lives”He said.

“What about your parent? What are you going to tell every one “I asked

“Leave that to me Emily, just pack your stuff and get ready to Leave tomorrow” he said as he turned to leave and quickly I blocked his path.

“Why Cade? What happened that turned you to a man whose heart is as hard as a stone?, why do you shy away from love? Does it have to do with what happened in the past?”I asked and angrily he pulled me by the arm and pushed me to the wall

“You really want to know! You really want to know why? Well I will tell you, Am a monster, a monster who doesn’t deserve to be loved or to be happy”

“I did some thing bad to someone, I ruined her life, am not the man you think I am, am not a saint, am evil itself ,would you still love me knowing all this”He said with so much pain in his voice.

I knew that what happened in the past certainly ruined him as much as it ruined the person he was talking about.

Gently I touched his face and he moved away from me,

“You don’t just get it right! am not some one you or any body can love, I had choosen you to do this because I thought that you were more practical, Since you didn’t fall for my money, you certainly wouldn’t fall me but I judged wrongly this time”

“As I have said earlier, you should pack your stuff and be ready to leave “He said and then left the room.

I sat on the bed feeling hurt, For the second time I have fallen in love just to be hurt again,life is just so unfair…………..



I stood on the field,taking in the air to help calm me a bit.

Falling in love is not meant for me, it’s not something I can ever have because of what happened in the past.

Ever since that thing happened ten years ago I have never been the same, have always been haunted by what I did.

I Have never been happy and each time I try to bring the thought of what I did to that poor girl comes back to haunt me and ever since then have made it a rule to myself and also to all my mistress that love is not for me.

It’s one of the reason why I keep rejecting Isabel and I had chosen Emily because she seemed to be some one practical but she had to fall for me too.

She had to let her heart go weak with loving a guy like me, I didn’t tell her the whole truth back there because some how I was scared by what her reaction would be , am sure that if I had told her the truth she would have hated me on sight but I didnt and what’s worst I feel bad sending her away.

I feel hurt knowing that I had forced her here and also hurt for having to send her away.

If any of my mistress were to fall for me, I always send them away with out feeling any thing but with Emily, I feel different, like a part of me will be leaving with her and am sure that it will hurt a lot and I don’t even know why? I don’t know why the thought of Emily leaving hurts me a lot.
