Yes boss, Taga said looking at Maxwell who collected the phone from her.

Hello Amara, you gave me quite a scare , I have almost gone crazy”

oh my” am really sorry Amara answered. I just had something urgent to take care of”

it nothing, am relive now that you are OK.

Thanks, if it would be another burden I haven’t checked on my friend in the hospital, she had the habit of skipping meals. o would be very grateful if you can help me out, I know that you are always busy and….

don’t worry I will take care of her, Maxwell answered before Amara could finish her statement.

oh” Amara signed “: I can’t thank you enough, thank you do much.
The senator knocked on the door gently. there was a lot of things he needed to be doing in Abuja but he was here in Lagos unable to leave when is family is on the verge of breaking apart, his wife had refused to talk to him ever since she discovered that Alfred was her child. could he blame her? She had every right to be angry but he still loves his wife despite her betrayal and infidelity, he still wished they could work things out.

The door opened, and Mrs. Benson stood there looking like a shadow of herself, she looked slim and strained. Katrina he called out.

Mrs. Benson looked at him and said I told you I don’t want to see you ever again Benson, stay away from me.

She tried to close the door but he stopped her, please we can work things out he pleaded.

Work things out? I have been begging for your forgiveness for years and you treated me like a trash. I was fading away, yet you did not forgive me. But now you are begging for my forgiveness and you expect me to forgive you just like that’ she said bewildered. She shook her head, maybe we were not meant to be together Benson, there is nothing joining us again. The only bold I thought we had was Alfred, but now the truth had been revealed, I think it the best we go our separate ways”

No Benson said shaking his head, God had joined us together, we can make it work again.

Yes God had joined us together but I am putting asunder. With that she locked the door.


Amara returned from her mother place relieved, she had wanted to spend more time with her mother but then she had to leave. they talked about many things and Amara told her mother about everything that happened including the appearance of Alfred and Mrs. Benson but Amara didn’t want to talk about the conversations she had with Kelvin, because her mother sided with Kelvin and was defending his action. Kelvin’s betrayal was still fresh in her mind. She waited endlessly for her father but he didn’t come.

It was already dark when she got home, she paid the taxi man and went inside her compound. I can do this, I can be a good mother she kept telling herself. She saw get door and remembered what Taga told her and she couldn’t believe that max could break down a door. ” Amara” she turned to look at the person calling her name, it was Alfred running toward her, oh no she didn’t want to see him, she bite her lips” Alfred what do you want? I thought I have made it perfectly clear that I don’t want to ever see u again.

I know but I couldn’t stay away from you” am sorry.

what do you mean by that nonsense please leave my house this instance or you will regret it she warned.

I can’t Amara, I just saw him, he said looking pale. Like he had seen a ghost”

Amara tapped her foot impatiently, you just saw who?

our son”

our sin isn’t dead I just saw him’

Amara hands shook, and she moved closer to Alfred, you saw him.where;?

He is with your father.

My father? Amara frowned, which father? Was he involved in this too.

Your father the police man he stated”

oh my’ he just look like me, someone told me and I didn’t believe until I saw him walking with him, Alfred eyes watered for this as he said this, his face filled with emotion, he had my face he is so handsome, oh Amara I thought it was a dream.

Amara gripped the handle of the step she had hope he would not look like Alfred, her desire to see her child increased, it doesn’t matter if she had to beg Alfred for this. She wasn’t sure if she could wait for Kelvin to bring him, she had to hug her son to kiss him.

do you think this is destiny?

What her brain woke up sharply, she couldn’t put together what he was talking about.

may be we are.meant to be together Amara, am sorry for all the pains I have put you through please find a heart to forgive me at first we find out that we weren’t sibling and now I found out that our child isn’t dead I think fate had the way of bringing us back together. Amara could only stare at Alfred. I have never been happy since you left years back, I love you Amara I have developed this feelings for you, I stop myself from thinking about you.


Amara could only stare at him, with her mouth open, she wasn’t expecting this to be happening.

Am sorry for the hurt I have caused you we can make it work again with our son bringing us back. We can make it work, with this he was moving dangerously close to her, please Amara please marry me, we can be a big happy family.

With her mouth still opened , Alfred went on his kneel before her.
Amara looked down at Alfred with her eyes going large on their socket. He was looking at her with expectations, she couldn’t place the look on his face, but then, he was there before her on his kneel looking at her like she had the ticket to his supper. Amara took two step away From him to look at him properly. it was unbelievable, she had imagine this countless times, she had even given up on it thinking it will never happen, but then some dreams comes to pass. What is before her is a dream come true!

Are you really doing this Alfred? I thought it will never happen in this my life time, she gasped out.

Alfred swallowed, with the hope of his plan coming to pass, I should have done this since, I should have done this before marrying u before, making the proposal memorable.

Amara laughed out, do you think I was referring to your stupid proposal she hisses at him, I was referring to this, she looked at him kneeling down, I never thought I will Ever see you in this form. Wow, this is a month full of surprises.

” but but.

But what, Amara threw back at him. oh you think you could bring your pencil leg over here to say rubbish words and I would jump into your hands with Kisses, you are more stupid than I thought you were Alfred” she declared. Then her eyes went to his kneeling form to his face, I must say’ you presented a rather interesting sight, I have never imagined you kneeling down before me but reality is a sure thing.

Alfred jumped to his feet angrily, what is the meaning of this now, are you making fun of me.

fun? you are yet to see the fun If u don’t carry your useless self out of here, oh because I have become somebody you think you can carry yourself back into my life, presenting your wicked face innocently the way you did back then in the village, she walked closer to him. News flash Alfred am not as foolish as you are.


boiling with rage, Alfred opened his mouth to talk but a voice stopped him from behind.

what’s going in here?

Amara looked up and gasped, it has been years, even at that she couldn’t deny the fact that the person before her was Mr. sinja– her biological father, who else hadn’t she seen from her past, she wondered as he walked towards her, unlike the normal police man he looked like someone who had enjoyed life, ignoring what Alfred was saying she looked at Mr. sinja she had nothing against him because he was also a victim of Mrs. Benson and besides she wasn’t sure Alfred was saying the truth. what are you doing here sir she asked.

Mr. sinja eyes stayed on for some second before moving to Alfred. What are you doing here Alfred he asked?

the question looked odd because both of them had no business in her house, yes she knew that both of them might have met before she didn’t understand why her father was frowning so much.

Alfred returned him with equal staring, and said I think I have the right to be at any where I want to be, he looked at Amara and then to her father you are the unwanted person he declared.

a slow smile came to his face that didn’t reach his face, Mr. sinja walked up to Alfred, don’t play with me boy, if you move any inch close to my daughter I will crush you, don’t forget who I am boy and what I represent, Alfred shifted sightly before Mr. sinja, Amara looked from one man to the other in total confusion or was she dreaming, it seems like there is an unspoken secret that is wanting to break free in any slight provocation, she didn’t like her father defending her like a little kid if two years, but currently all she could do was to look at them.

Remembering what Alfred told her about her child, sir, Alfred just told me you have my son, for some strange reason she prayed it was a lie, may be because she didn’t wish her father was among the party that brought injustice to her.

Yes he said without taking his eyes from Alfred.

so it is true she shouted, so you are also in party with this, you helped Kelvin take away my child from me, and yet you called yourself my father.
