Living A Liar’s Life
By : Kebby NG
“Why do you look so shocked,in these circumstance it’s the only situation that will benefit you and my son”He said and gave me a chance to speak but when I had nothing to say,He continued
“You don’t want him to be a laughing stock to the whole society right?”He asked starring down at me
“Yes,I don’t want him”
“So it wouldn’t hurt if he got married and have his kids with this other lady”He asked
Though what he was asking me hurt,I found myself nodding to his request
“So you are fine if we get another wife for him right?”He asked
“If she will be able to give him a child,Am fine with it” I replied
“Good then,We will begin the search and you must not back out of it,You agreed to this and so you must end it okay”He said
“Yes your majesty”I replied.
Later on I went back to the palace thinking about what I just agreed on,if Brian were to find out then am sure that he will be angry
But this is for his own good,I know for a fact that Brian loves children and am sure he want his own ,So what would a barren woman like me do for him,It’s best that he marries some one else,Some one who will be able to give him a child.
I was passing through the garden when I saw him playing with the gardener twins.
He had one in his arms and the other kept on pulling his clothe.
Just looking at him like this made me feel worth less,Why did I have to be barren,I also want my own child! I thought as the tears threatened to pour.
I went back to my room only to see Dora mother waiting for me
“There you are my child,Take this I brought it for you,They told me that it would work perfectly,It’s what you need if you want to conceive”She said giving me a cup
“I don’t want a thing”I replied
“But you must have it…..it will work for you”I said
“What’s the point! He will be getting married to some one who can give him an heir”I said with our thinking
“Its nothing,I…… I didn’t mean what I said”
“You meant it Dora, Cause if you didn’t you wouldn’t have say it”She said
“I will not stand for it,No one else will be his wife except you!”She yelled and stormed out of the room
I sat down on the bed,Feeling more down than ever, why did I have to say that to her and knowing Dora mother she will surely cause problem.
Quickly I went after her,I searched around but she was no where to be found
And then I began to hear loud angry voices coming from the patio.
Quickly I went there only to stop when I heard Brian mother saying
“And so what? If my son decideds to marry some one else then he has the right to,Do you think he will be with your daughter who will always been barren for the rest of her life”
“How dare you? We married our daughter in to your family,So she will be treated well but it seems like you all are the one treating her bad”
“Another wife? Another wife you say! Well I won’t let that happen,I won’t sit back and let you marry over my daughter,She will be the only bride in this house and that is final” Dora mother yelled
“How dare you raise your voice at me,You should remember that I am the queen “Brian mother yelled and quickly I ran inside
“Mom,please let’s go”I said pulling her but she pulled away and walked back to the queen
“Your time is now over,My daughter is the queen now and she will continue being the queen”She said
“Mom please stop! Let’s just go”I said again
“When they needed help, They came to us and in exchange they gave their son to you,wanting you to marry him so that we can help with the merger and now that they have it,They now want to cast you aside! Well I won’t let that happen!!!”she said and stormed out of the room
“I apologize your Highness”I said bowing
” Take your apology some where else,If I had known that things will turn out this way,I would never have allowed my son to marry you”She said angrily and stormed out of the patio herself
I stood in the room thinking about every thing
Those who had once been in support of me are no more In support just because I can’t give birth.
Feeling suffocated,I went back into the room and locked the door.
I layed on the bed and cried my eyes out, Why is this happening to me? Why can’t I just be happy? Why?
Some one began to knock on the door and when I didn’t respond, He began to call my name
“Open this door,We need to talk Dora,Open up please”He said as he kept on banging the door.
I heard him telling some one to get the spare keys.
I didn’t want him seeing me like this,I have always pretend to be strong in front of Brian,That I wasn’t affected with what people were saying about my Barreness but today is different.
I couldn’t hold it in any more and if Brian were to see me like this he will feel guilty and he won’t want to marry the other lady for my sake.
Quickly I dashed into the bath room and wash up my face and then I dried up my face and was starring at my self in the mirror.
That was how he found me when he walked in
“Tell me what your mother meant by me marrying some one else?'”He yelled at me
Bracing my self for the confrontation,I turned to look at him
“Yes you will be marrying another bride”
“Says me,Let’s face the fact I can’t give birth to a child and you must have an heir, Having another bride that will produce one for you will only make it better” I said
‘”And will you be feeling better? Will you be able to live with the fact that you are now going to share me with some one else’He asked
No,I won’t be able to! I thought sadly .
“If she will certainly give you what you want then I …….. ”
“Emma!!!”he yelled suddenly and I stared at him shocked
“Is it that easy for you , To give me to some one else with out even considering my feelings,if the situation was turned around,I won’t ever give you up for some one else,You didn’t even think about how I would feel”
“You are wrong,I agreed to this marriage for your sake,I can’t bear watching you with other kids, I hate it when they talk about you and I know that you want your child and that is some thing I can never give you, If some one else can give you that then am willing to accept it,As long as it makes you happy am willing to go through with it”I said with emotion
” Being with some one else Wont make me happy”
“When you finally have your child in your arms,You will certainly change your opinion”I answered cripsly
‘”am not going through any marriage,You are my wife and you will keep on being my wife”He said and began to walk off
I can’t certainly let him leave with out convincing him about it, I thought and quickly I ran to stand in front of him, Obstructing his path
“A wife who can’t give you an heir,Why can’t you just see reason,You will tell me now that you can cope,That if we don’t have a child it won’t matter to you but am sure that when you get older and feel the impact you will hate me for it and that is some thing I don’t want”
“If you love me Brian,You will get married and have a child,That alone will make me happy even if I don’t have one”I said as the tears slipped down my face
“You fool!”he said angrily
“Yes am a fool for pushing out the man Iove but when I see you with your own child then every thing I have to give up now will surely be worth it”I said .
“You really do want me to get married again?”
“Yes,As long as you will be able to have your own child”
“And you will be fine with it ”
“I will just as long as we achieve what we want”I said breathing in deeply
Brian walked the remaining pace between us and pulled me to a very tight hug
“I love you and even if I agree to this marriage what ever you are asking of me, You will only be the one I love and want”He said kissing my fore head and I snuggled close to him, Hoping with all my heart that it turns out that way.
