Icy chill swept up Amara spine, leaving goosebumps at their wake as her big eyes stared at Kelvin. she opened her mouth to talk but nothing came out, her heart raced beyond control days back she could say it was Kelvin that made her heart beat fast, but now fear ruled her mind, body and soul maybe she didn’t hear him well, oh no! it either she is now hearing things or she is going mad.

Kelvin face was drawn tight against his bones, making him look two times his age, his eyes tired to look at her face but he couldn’t.
Ara am sorry please forgive me I never meant to hurt you, all I want was your happiness, Kelvin looked on the verge of tears, something she had never seen before. all she could do is to gap at him like an alien. or was he an alien?

Amara couldn’t see clearly again, and it looked as if she was about to faint, her heart was still racing but still she couldn’t remove her eyes from Kelvin, neither could she close her mouth. the word flashed into her head again and it feels like her head would burst out. my son, my son, my son!

her eyes dimes the more and her legs gave way, Kelvin wanted to hold her but she jumped as if he was infected with the deadly Ebola. tears came out of his eyes showing how much he was hurt by what Amara just did, he dropped his hands back to his side.Amara kept doing backwards until she come in contact with the wall, her eyes still glued with Kelvin she lifted her hand and pointed to Kelvin’s head, you… you…

I am sorry he pleaded again

shut up Amara shouted at him, she suddenly screamed putting her hands on her head as if she was hit by a strong headache, she lifted her eyes again to look at Kelvin who was still crying. are you telling me now that my child is still alive” my son is alive? she shrieked.

Kelvin couldn’t gather the courage to answer, and to Amara silence was an enough answer she could get, her eyes went to the floor and she shouted Wow” as tears flowed from her eyes unnoticed, Wow” she shouted again.

I only wanted both of you to be happy Kelvin said, please believe me Ara I never meant to hurt you.

wow” she gaps again as her body hit the floor, her b—-t ached her painfully a reminder of the pains she went thru for not b—-t feeding her child, milk coming out endlessly with no baby to feed it . the pains then was mind blowing, it was unbearable , her mind flashed back on that faithful day when she woke up on the hospital bed with the pain that goes along post labor, the pains was much telling her of the bundle of joy she would see after wards. but Kelvin was there presenting his deceitful face to her, she had thought he had been the most caring person she had ever seen, but little did she know that he was there laughing at her over her pains and her shame, her tears dropped and dropped till her dress became wet, so you have been laughing at me , she said as the reality came to her.

Kelvin came beside her and said, no my love! I only wanted what was best for you, his voice shook terrible, but Amara was past noticing, she wasn’t even listening to him. you always lamented of carrying a product of incest and I was scared that u might come to hate he come to stay with you, please Ara believe me Kelvin said trying to put his hand on her.

Amara flashed immediately his hand touched her, connecting with his cheek she continued slapping him, don’t touch me she said slapping him the more, hitting him till her hand ached painfully and Kelvin made no attempt to stop her. he was ready to take any punishment she brings

How dare you Kelvin, she cried. I trusted you Kelvin, I trusted you more than I trusted myself but you stabbed me just like every other person in my life, u brought me nothing but pain, but to think of it you did it smoothly. Without a trace, she said surprised. oh my God am such a fool, she laughed her eyes not seeing anything but pains. the feeling of betrayal, anytime am hurt I came to you not knowing you where laughing at me .

No Kelvin yelled, no Amara I never did that, I will never do such a thing. please hit me Amara say whatever you want to say but please don’t hate. God knows that I deserve it but please don’t hate Me.

it already too late to say that Amara cried because I already hate you, the more I look at u the more I hate you.

Where is my son she said out?

He is not here Kelvin said his voice was lost and distant, but at the moment she didn’t care.

I want my son she yelled, I want him right now.
and am sure I would lock you right away for what u did, where is he she shouted holding Kelvin in his shirt shaking him with all her might, barky managing a swing.

He his with someone I will bring him to you.

Amara turned on her heels and marched out of the apartment. Kelvin followed her immediately
heavy rain started out side, you can’t drive like this please stay Kelvin pleaded gently but she was already in the rain walking very fast as if the devil was behind her, and maybe he was!

Despite the short distance between the house and her car Amara was already wet when she got to the car. she opened the door and was about to enter when Kelvin pulled her against his chest, Ara you can’t drive like this and if you. must go let me drive you.

Amara looked at him, get ur dirty hands off me she said as she pushed Kelvin with all her might. she jumped into the car locking it instantly. her fingers shook but from the cold and the anger boiling inside her, she tried hard to put the key inside the hole and she couldn’t after many attempt she started the car. Kelvin looked shattered as he stood beside the car looking at her as the rain drain on him, Amara started the car and drove off before the gate could open, she drove out looking at the the house for the last time, there he was the person who stabbed her in the heart still standing I. the rain watching her leave..


Amara slide out from the car feeling boneless, the rain still poured endlessly and she stood beside her car as the rain poured over her face.
the day was already bright and it made no sense to her. finally she dragged her self into her apartment, her cold apartment added to the chill she was feeling inside her bones. she walked into her bedroom like someone being operated with remote control, she removed her wet cloths and went into the bath room opening the shower which she knew can provide hot water, and the water poured on her like the heavy rain, even at the hot water she still felt cold she drew her legs to together as she cried anew as she tasted her tears that was salty, she didn’t know how long she sat there may be minute, hours or maybe all day. all she knows is that her body refused to come. finally when the hot water refused coming it started pouring cold water, she shut the showed and came out and she didn’t bother cleaning her self she climbed the bed like that and took the bed cover and covered her self , she cried until sleep eventually took her.


Kelvin ran on the treadmill increasing the speed all he wanted was to forget, just forget. he had never wished himself dead like he did now, the feel of betrayal that he saw on Amara’s face would hurt him for ever, he wanted to safe her from pains but instead he doubled her pains, all for what and if what Alfred said was the truth the child wasn’t an incest he had just given Amara pains for nothing. and Sam how would he let him go after many years
he had grown too attached to him he felt like he was his biological father,knowing that Sam saw him as his father that had been his consolation all those years he had been searching for Amara. Sam had been his happiness he had done everything possible for him not to hate his mother. he had told him good stories about Amara and that they would see each other soon, but now he have to give up all that because he knew that Amara would not want him in their life again and he deserve it. and now be would do anything to make her happy again even if it means him vanishing From their life for ever.
