Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 38
He had searched his house thoroughly for the mini sized picture of his mother that he always carried around; he’d checked his cars, his briefcases and there was nothing.
‘That would be later’ he relaxed on the bed.
He felt like crap after firing Amanda; the truth was that he felt jealous when he had seen Nathan kissing her and she had seemed to enjoy it very much.
He had sent her a lot of cash so she could use it up while looking for another job; she was a hard working person and deserved it.
He wondered if his life would revert to “normal” now she was out of it; he hoped her face wouldn’t pop up in his mind while he tried to work on some papers because that would be the most frustrating thing ever.
His phone beeped, he’d been expecting Morgan as the weekend had come and he favored Friday nights particularly.
‘Wendy’ he murmured her name.
WENDY: Hi darling, you never called? You never checked up on I or your baby.
GREG: Honey, I am so sorry, I was so d--n busy; you know how work could get?
WENDY: I am sorry for being too hard on you.
GREG: So how is our sweet baby.
WENDY: It’s going to be a girl, so I looked up names, you’ll have to find some names too.
GREG: Yea, a girl? I totally adored baby girls.
WENDY: Guess what I’d love us to call her?
GREG: I am waiting…
GREG: Oh my God, that would be such an honor.
WENDY: Yes, she means so much to you and I don’t want her memory to be gone just liked that.
GREG: I don’t know what to say, but I am really touched Wendy.
WENDY: Say nothing. There’s something of utmost importance that I would love to discuss with you later. Now is not a good time.
GREG: What’s it about?
GREG: Just so you know, I fired Amanda.
WENDY: That’s wonderful news.
GREG: Yea, I have to run along now.
WENDY: Bye love. Kisses.
He realized this was the first time that he had really cared about her pregnancy and the child that she carried.
It was very thoughtful of Wendy to have named the child after his late mother; it meant so much to him and at that moment, he made up his mind to be with her.
Wendy was the mother of his child and he was going ahead with her.
He had named a lot of things after her with the hopes of immortalizing her name; like the scholarship program that he had “LucyBee” and amongst other things.
He checked his phone for other messages from Morgan but he found none.
He heard the doorbell ring and he rushed to get it, he was very sure his best friend, Morgan had come for him.
He walked swiftly to the door and pulled it open.
Blood drained from his face as he stared at his younger brother.
‘What are you doing here, you little freak’? Greg’s eyes were cold and unwelcoming.
‘Stay away from my girlfriend you a-----e, Amanda is mine for the records and nobody can take her away from me, because she is mine’ Nathan yelled.
‘I don’t really understand you, are you on some cheap coke? You just barged into my house and now you’re yelling at me? Last I checked, I never invited you over’ Greg replied.
Anger coursed through him as he imagined Amanda and his half brother together.
He felt jealous; he felt enraged.
‘Stay away from Mandy’ Nathan poked a finger at him.
‘Are you f-----g kidding me’? Greg launched a punch at his face; he staggered and fell to the ground.
‘Now get the hell out of my house’ he pointed at the gate.
‘You’re such a mean person Greg and you got a lot of anger inside of you, you always act like you’re perfect but trust me, you’re far from it.
‘Whatever, just get out of my house’ Greg said. He didn’t feel any remorse for hitting his brother. Nathan was just one rude a-----e and he needed to be put in place.
‘Hey buddy, I just saw Nathan walking away from here, what happened’? From the way Nathan bled, he knew they had a one on one.
‘Nothing, let’s go’ Greg flexed his fingers and then fetched his phone.
‘Tell me’ Morgan insisted.
‘If you tell me why you ended things with Alex, because you really seemed happy with her’ Greg had observed how relaxed his friend had looked the whole time he dated her.
‘Deal’ Morgan grinned.
‘I fired Amanda; I found her kissing Nathan during work hours and she got me so worried, which was so unprofessional’ he explained.
‘That is not enough reason to fire her; Greg…’ Morgan wondered why his friend had acted so impulsively.
‘Hey, don’t blame me, I paid her good money that should last her till she gets another job; I am not the mean person here’ Greg replied.
‘If I didn’t know you well, I’d say you like her and you felt jealous when you saw your brother kissing her’ Morgan was suspicious that this was the real case scenario.
‘Like her? She is not my type, I have taken my decision. Wendy is the woman for me’ Greg moved to the cellar and poured himself a glass of wine.
‘Really? Because she has been really sexy these days’ Morgan asked.
‘Can we stop talking about Amanda for a moment? Now tell me about Alex, why did you break up’? Greg asked.
‘Well, she lied to me about something and when I discovered it, it triggered some memories from my past relationship and I really felt hurt, but now I have been able to clear my head. I think I was overreacting and I feel deep down that I am still judging like she is my ex’ Morgan replied.
