Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 36
Full Realization And Reunification
[ Sarah’s Viewpoint ]
Though Doreen kept insisting Marvin was not Martin, I still didn’t believe her. To me, Marvin was Martin and Martin was Marvin. It was just a game. I was at home when Martin(Marvin) called me. He said I should come to his residence right away. I asked him what was happening but he said it was a surprise. When I reached his mansion, I noticed his gateman Dickson had been replaced with a much younger man in his mid twenties.
” Good morning ma’am,” he greeted me.
“Good morning, please is Marvin at home?” I asked.
“Yes,ma’am, “ the security man said.
I stepped into the house and realized a party was going on. Marvin welcome me to his residence. Before I could utter a word, I saw another young man that really look like ‘Marvin.’
The young man fixed his gaze on me and called out my name, “SARAH!!”
The moment he called me, something shook in me and my brain flashed back in quick succession and then halted on a scene. Suddenly, I remembered everything. I screamed his name,
My mind flashed back to the first time I met him thinking he was my brother, his failed marriage , the DNA test, how I foiled his marriage , Our planned marriage. I slipped and fell, hitting my head hard on the cemented floor.
It all came back to me like a movie. I was amazed at the unfolding of those scenes in my mind. Martin was my first boyfriend, not Marvin.
“Hmmm, Martin, what happened after I slipped down on our wedding day and where have you been?” I asked.
Martin looked quite sad. He responded, “after you slipped down and hit your head on the cemented floor, you lost your memory and was admitted at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. I visited you everyday until your father stopped me. He blamed me for your misfortunes. Later, I got the chance to go to the USA.
I returned two days ago?”
Realization dawned on me. I have mistaken Marvin for Martin because they were identical Twins. How could I? It looked like I was in the family of Twins. Remember I had Twin brothers too- Mario and Marcelo and I was dating Twins.
For over five minutes, there was an uneasy silence between Martin and I. Martin was my first and only true love. I had shown him unconditional love but he was always ambivalent about his love for me. The fibers of love burnt within me for Martin.
Martin took me to a quiet place where we could have a little chat.
In the backyard garden, I fixed my gaze on Martin. Then I gave him a passionate hug and kiss. We hugged each other as if there was no tomorrow. All the sentiments I had for him resurfaced.
I have never stopped loving him even though my love have shifted to his twin brother mistakenly during my brain concussion. Now that I regain my memory, I realized the love I had for Martin was unparalleled. My joy knew no bound. My one and only true Martin is back. Then Martin said, “I’m back here to marry you and take you with me to America.”
That’s unbelievable.It sounded too good to be true. In my moment of joy, I tuned round and saw someone staring at me from the back.He was Marvin. There was a tinge of jealousy in his eyes.
Probably, no one told Martin I had been dating his twin brother before he returned .
Even though Martin and Marvin were Twins, there were fundamental differences between them. Martin was much more fun to be with. He’s more principled and conservative and perhaps more intelligent than Marvin. But Marvin has his strength too. He was sociable,adaptive and more sophisticated.
I was very happy Martin had returned and United With his brother, father and mother. Together we would become one great family. When I got married to Martin, it would be “happy ever after.”
The following week, I realized changes in my body. My breast became fuller, I feel nauseous and slept a lot. Then I missed my period.
I knew immediately I was pregnant for Marvin. That night I had sex with him in his residence.
“Awww, God, why now. Just when we were planning to resume our marriage plan, the devil had decided to block it again by bringing in pregnancy. I knew Martin would never marry me if he knew I got pregnant for his twin brother Marvin. But I couldn’t hide it from him too. Abortion came into my mind. I could just take it out and solve the problem.
Just when I was contemplating on what to do, Martin materialized.
“Are you pregnant?” he asked me. I was quiet. He asked me again and I was quiet. Then he said, “You are pregnant for my brother, Marvin. Isn’t it? You mistook him for me and had sex with him thinking I changed my mind on premarital sex. No. I hate pre-marital sex and I would always remained solidly behind that principle.
Sex is for married couples, Sarah. I keep telling you this. Now that you are pregnant , don’t ever think of abortion.”
After saying that, he left. I felt my world coming down on me like waves. Martin would bounced me again because of the pregnancy.
I knew it. I could feel it.
☆☆THE END ☆☆
Every mortal shall dance to the tune of destiny. What will be will be and what won’t be won’t be. We may try all we can but the destiny of love is beyond our control. We can’t always have what we desire unless such desires work in line with our destiny.
It is ironical that Sarah who loved Martin with a passion ended up with Marvin instead of Martin. She gave birth to a bouncing baby boy whom he named after Martin Junior Vanderpuye. Marvin had renowned his USA citizenship and became a full Ghanaian.
Mavis and Dora were arrested and sentenced to ten years imprisonment with hard labour after pleading guilty to baby thievery, kidnapping and trafficking.
Martin returned to the USA. He is now in a relationship with the Annabelle, the white lady who conducted the interview for him when he went to the USA.
From time to time, he calls home to check on the family.
Lucy and Stephen strengthened their marriage and promised to be faithful to each other. Doreen got married to Dickson. The two friends-turned-enemies, Doreen and Lucy decided to reconcile and become good friends again.
My dear Reader, always remember, what will be will be. You don’t need to force it. We must all carry the cross of our destiny.
