Chapter 29

“What’s this picture?”I asked the maid who was holding the album

“It’s the pictures of the past workers of the resort”One of the maid replied

“Past workers,All these people in this album were once workers of the resort?”I asked and they all nodded .

“This can’t be!”I muttered softly as I stared at the picture which had both my parents in it

Though they were quite young they were my parents, they have also worked in the resort

“Can I have this album, I need to show it to some one”I said as I ran off with the Album

I have to show it to Cade, he must know some thing about it,I thought as I ran to the room.

I opened it only to hear Stephanie voice coming from the room

“Are you still pushing through with it?”She asked

“Yes, Emily has to leave,it’s for the best”he replied

“Who exactly! Is it for us?””She asked as she walked towards him wrapping her arm around him.

“Yes,it’s the best for us “He replied and feeling hurt, I left there silently and head out of the house, still in my night gown,I walked through the garden and when I got to an empty seat,I sat on it and began to go through the pictures again.

If my parents had worked here then those things that happened to me would certainly mean some thing.

Could that house have mean some thing to me too? I thought as I left the field heading to the house at the back.

I got there and I stood starring at it hoping that I will remember some thing but nothing came.

Wanting to know more, I began to head to the house only to be stopped by David.

“What are you doing here ma’am”He asked

“I have to check some thing”I said moving past him but he pulled me back

“What do you want to check,I will do it for you”he said

“That house! Do you know if some one lived there?”I asked

“No one lived there”He answered looking at the house

“Are you sure?”I asked again

“No one did, why are you even asking? Is something wrong?”he asked

“Nothing is wrong! Nothing”I replied as I walked off leaving him standing there.

I head back to the mansion, when I got there, I stared around it and tried to see if a memory will come but nothing did.

I shouldn’t be worried, what I should do right now is to call my parents, they will have some explanation to it, I thought as I began to head to the room.

I got back to the room only to see Cade there and he looked worried.

“Where the hell have you been? Do you know how աօʀʀɨɛɖ I have been?”he asked

I didn’t feel like answering him,so I walked past him and went towards the phone to call my parents

“Emily,am talking to you!”he said as he stood behind me but still I didn’t answer ɦɨʍ,

I kept on dialling my parents number but they wouldn’t pick.

“Emily this is not right, we have already decide that you are to leave, your plane is waiting, let’s go”He said as he held my hand but I pushed him away

“Am not leaving!”I said


“You heard me Cade, am not leaving, I found another reason to stay and I won’t tell you about it, you can keep on doing what you want to do with your mistress, I won’t meddle and I will try my utmost best not to bother you with my feelings”I said

“Emily you need to leave…………….”

“Am not leaving Cade!!!! not until I get my answers”I said

“You really are stubborn!”he retorted getting angry too

“I won’t bother you Cade, if you can,pretend that am not here, I will try not to get in your way, I mean it”I said and taking fresh clothes from the closet I went into the bath room.

While taking a bathe, I remembered what I said to Cade and knew that it was the best.

My staying back doesn’t have to do with Cade, I thought as I walked out of the bath room fully dressed.

I stopped when I saw that I had company in the room.

“What do you want?”I asked

“I heard that you are no longer leaving ?”Stephanie asked

“It has nothing to do with you, so please leave, I need to get dressed”I said as I stood by the mirror brushing my hair

“So you have really decide to wait?” She asked again.

“Yes I have, so stop asking me more questions and just leave”I yelled at her

“Fine I will leave”she said and did some thing that was totally off, she gave me a smile, a genuine one at that and then she left the room.



“Am not leaving Cade!!!”

I stood by the Terris waiting my horse to be brought to me while remembering what Emily had said earlier

I don’t know if I should be feeling happy or sad that she decide to stay.

The only way she can get out in all of this with out being hurt is if she leave now, I want her to be safe, that’s why I wanted her to leave but some thing else have made her stay, could it be the resort? I thought as my horse was finally brought to me by David.

“Just a head up, I saw Your wife at the house this morning”He said to me


“She was going there and if I hadn’t been there, she would have gone into the house, she kept on asking me If some one lived there and i lied to her “He said

“That’s good, I will handle it with my wife, you don’t have to worry” I said

“And one more thing”David said stopping me

“Stop hurting her, Emily is a nice girl and she deserves to be loved not to be treated like thrash, At least for her sake, try keeping your affair with your mistress a secret, she deserves more than that”David said and then began to walk off

“Why do I feel like you care about my wife way too much?”I asked

“Really? I didn’t know, well have told you what I have tell you, stop being a jerk and treat your wife nicely”he said and left the Terris.

Knowing that David was close to my wife this morning got me feeling angry and knowing that David might be having one or two feelings towards Emily got me feeling jealous.

I might reject Emily love towards me, it doesn’t mean I will let her be close to any other man, I thought as I rode out of the Terris.



I stayed in the room, preparing some things that will be needed for the advertising part of the resort when the door opened and Cade walked in.

I hadn’t seen him since the morning he left the room and seeing him now made my heart go crazy.

“Stop looking at me that way, I just came back to get some things that I need”He said as he went to the closet

“Will you be sleeping out?”i asked

“Or would I be sleeping with Stephanie? That’s the question you were going to ask right, well am a bit disappointed myself, I have a lot of work to do, so I will be busy doing a lot of things with Her” he said hurting me

“Cade I………..”

“Feeling hurt already? I told you leave, to pack your belongings and get out but since you choose to stay you will have to listen to me telling you this every day”he said

“Have told you, I won’t pressure you with what am feeling towards you , it’s my feelings and so I will take care of it ” I said

“Really? Would it be able to bear seeing me pecking my mistress, will it be able to bear seeing me make love with Stephanie, it won’t and so if you don’t want to get hurt, just leave already “he said

“I won’t leave, no matter what you do or say to me, I won’t leave”I said as I watched him walk off

“Have given you your chance, Now what happens now,Is all up to me to decide “he said as he gave me a murdering look and then left the room.

I sat by table feeling so sad, Why won’t he just let me know get close him.

I love him and I know that with time he can learn to love me but it seems like what happened years ago is the only thing stopping him from being happy.
