Staring blankly at Roxy, I was surprised and at the same time confused
What did she just say! did I hear right …. i mean how is it possible! Nick my own son ….
how do I explain all of this to my family, how do…….. wait a minute! Is this what Chase was trying to let me know …
Damn! this is all messed up
how did he get to know about it? I thought it was supposed to be a secret .
Philip! Roxy called distracting me from my thoughts
What is it? I glared at her
I am sorry , I am really sor…. she tried say but I shut her up
Sorry! will sorry Change the fact that you lied to me all this years , will it change the fact that you kept my child away from me for good twenty three years? I yelled
She tried to say something but got choked up by her tears
do you know how many people will get hurt because of what you did, do you know how many?
I am sorry , I am really sorry Philip. She kept on pleading
I regretted ever knowing you , I regretted ever loving a greedy bitch like you
She immediately went down on her knees
Forgive me , please don’t push me away from you
I stared at her and shook my head in pity
She looked pathetic!
Sit down ! I instructed her and she did
What exactly do you want me to do? I asked calmly
I want you to be close to your son. She said in between sobs
Close! Will that change anything?
Of course it will! Nick needs his father, your son needs you ….
I just need time to think it through, I have a family and their feelings also matters to me
Oh! She looked away
Is Nick aware of it? I asked
She shook her head negatively
I will let my wife know about Nick before taking any step. I informed
And what if she doesn’t agree, will you push Your son away? she probed on
My wife is not as inconsiderate as you
Oh if that is the case , can we exchange number? She asked
So we can contact each other whenever we need to see
There is no need for that ,I will send a message through Chase whenever I need to see you . I informed and she scoffed
Chase! What exactly is your relationship with him?
he is my employer and also the boyfriend to my daughter
Daughter! what do you mean, is Candace your daughter? She gave me a puzzled look
Yes, do you know her?
then what is with …. I tried to say but she cut me off ……..
I need to get going Philip . She stood up
Please make sure you reach out to your son before it gets out of hand . She warned before walking out of the office …..
What is she talking about? I wondered
Confused, I sat in my car pondering on what I just heard
Candace is the daughter to Philip, isn’t she the same girl Nick likes ….. I mean I overheard Chase scold at him because he ,Nick forcefully kissed her
Oh my gawd! how did it get to this
I brought out my my phone from my bag and dialled Nick number
It rang and as expected he did not pick up
I dialled it again but it was still the same
Oh Nick , when will you forgive your mother?
I scrolled down my phone and was about dialling Andy’s number when his call came through
I received it
hello baby, how are you?he greeted
I am fine. I was about calling before your call came in. informed
Are you missing me?
Yes baby but I called to ask about Nick , have you seen or heard from him?. I asked
No baby, Nick decided to shut me off also
Are you alright? is anything the matter? he asked rushingly
Yes I am , I just wanted to let him know that I have found his father. I informed
What!! Are you for real?
And who is his father? he asked
I kept mute wondering if I should tell him or not
Are you still there? he asked
Who is his father? he repeated and I sighed
his name is Philip Noah
Philip Noah,do I know him? he probed
I don’t know if you do, but he is the father to Candace, Chase girlfriend. I informed and the line went silent…….
Andy ( Nick’s manager?
Placing my phone on my ear, i froze
What did I just hear, Nick and Candace share the same father….
Andy! Are you there? she asked
Yes. What were you saying? I tried to compose myself
I said you should help me inform him about it whenever you see him . She pleaded
Okay , I will do that . I promised and ended the call….
What will I do now?I can’t let my plan get ruined because of this , I really can’t ……
The door suddenly flung opened and Nick stormed in
Why didn’t you tell me Chase would be releasing his duet today ?he frowned
And if I did tell you, what will you do? I retorted
What! how dare you talk to me like that ! he yelled
Yelling is the only thing you are good at , why can’t you direct your anger to Chase who stole everything from you. I fired at him and he became calm
When are you going to get me the girl? he suddenly asked and I smiled
I will get her this evening.
Good! bring her to me unhurt . he instructed before leaving the room
I grinned evilly
I am sorry Nick but I really need to do this ….
I don’t care if you sleep with your sister , all I want is the Delgado’s wealth….
Walking out of the huge gate , I bade Tiffany before heading to the taxi station
I waited patiently for a taxi to come along when a black car pulled in front of me
Who is this? I wondered
The door to the car opened and a man on black alighted from it
I stared curiously at him as he walked towards me
Good evening Miss Candy! he greeted flashing me a smile
And who are you? I asked
I am Chase body guard, he sent me to pick you. he informed
Why can’t he come by himself? I probed
It was suppose to be a secret , but I will tell you . My boss wants to take you on a dinner date
Really! I squealed and he nodded
he opened the car doors for me to get in and I did
he got into the driver seat,started the cat and drove off …
I was excited throughout the drive and grinned sheepishly at the thought of me and Chase having dinner all alone
Where are we headed to, is it a restaurant or a hotel? I asked the man
When you get there , you will see for Yourself. he smiled
We soon got to the front of a very huge mansion and the man honk the car horn
The gate was immediately open by a security and he drove in
I stared at the house in awe
Does this belongs to Chase? I wondered
The man alighted from the car and rushed to help me with the car doors
Thanks . I blushed and he smiled
Come with me . he said he walked into the house
Where is Chase? I asked as we got to the beautiful sitting room
he is in his room . he smiled
how can I get there? I asked
Climb up the stairs, the first room by your right . he directed
Thanks . I smiled
I followed his directions and soon got to room
I pushed the door to the room opened and walked in
I saw Chase sitting on a chair with his back turned to me
Chase! I called as I walked towards him and when he turned his chair to face me , I almost peed on my pant
Nick! What are you doing here, where is Chase? I asked in a rush
Welcome baby, I have been waiting all day for you …….
