Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 30
“That was kinda rude of him.” I said smiling and she sighed.
“This is why I didn’t want to come at the first place. They are all proud b**ches.” Diana said and I held her hand sighing.
“Don’t be so hurt. It is possible he has seen me on the streets before and he can’t hold those filthy hands. I can’t blame him.” I said and she shook her head.
“No matter where he has met you before, he should be a d**k.” She said and I laughed.
“A d**k?” I asked and she looked at me laughing.
“Yes a d**k.” She replied and I laughed.
“Never had something like that before. It sounded weird.” I said and she smiled.
“It’s possible you haven’t heard it.” She said and we heard the music begin to play.
“I am yet to see your mother, her husband and her other children.” I said and she looked around.
“They should be here any moment from now. The party is about to beginning.” She said rolling her eyes.
“It’s fine.” I said looking at her and I saw her lost, staring at something. I traced her gaze and I saw it landed on a middle aged Man.
“Diana.” He called smiling widely.
“Father.” She whispered. The man ran to her and hugged her tightly.
“I missed you so much.” He said shutting his eyes, and then I noticed she wasn’t hugging him back.
“No you didn’t miss me. You abandoned me.” She said and her father held her hand.
“It wasn’t my fault. I know I can’t justify myself for not coming to see you, but trust me it wasn’t my fault.” He said.
“So whose fault was it? Mother’s?” She asked and he looked at me.
“We should go somewhere private to talk.” He said and Diana shook her head.
“Anywhere we are going, he follows. At least he didn’t abandon me. He is the reason I am here today.” She said and I sighed.
“Hi Sir. I am Isaac.” I said and he smiled.
“How are you Isaac? I am happy you made Diana come here. She must really love you.” He said and I smiled faintly.
“Let’s move to the back of the house. Lesser noise.” He said and Diana held my hand.
“Come with us.” She said and I
whispered into her ear.
“Are you sure? This is a family issue, I shouldn’t be intruding.” I said and she looked at me.
“You aren’t a stranger Isaac.” She said as we all walked out of the house heading to the back.
“So she invited you here?” Diana asked and he shook his head.
“No she didn’t. I came on my own will.” He replied and Diana looked at me.
“Why?” She asked.
“I wanted to see you badly. I called your aunt to ask if you would be attending and she said yes. So I had to come.” He said.
“Why show up now? You didn’t show up when I needed you the most.” She said and he sighed.
“Your mother is at fault Diana. I know I shouldn’t say this to you but believe me I don’t want you to hate me.” He said.
“Go on. I want to know everything.” She replied staring at him.
“Your mother had another lover while we were still together. I got to know this when you were seven. I was so pained and I left her. I couldn’t take you with me because she didn’t let me.” He said and I saw tears gather in her eyes.
“What? She told me you had a minor misunderstanding and you didn’t want to stay back anymore. So you left.” She said and he sighed.
“I knew she would come up with a story. She married her lover and he is with her right now. He is her husband now.” He said and she began to weep.
“Why would she do that? Why would she cheat?” She asked and he shook his head.
“I don’t know Diana. I didn’t want to know. I was pained to know she actually didn’t love me. I know this is the direct opposite of what you have heard. Ask her, she will be dumbfounded. She would never think I would show up because of the hatred I grew for her.” He said and Diana left my hand walking to him.
“I missed you Dad.” She said in tears hugging him tightly.
“I had always loved you Diana. But I couldn’t just show up that way. I knew you saw me as a monster.” He said and she nodded.
“I hated you for abandoning me. But not anymore. I love you.” She said and he smiled trying not to cry too. He kissed her hair shutting his eyes tight.
“I should leave now.” I said Smiling and she nodded.
“I will be right here with father. Stick around.” She said and I nodded walking away.
I walked back to the living room and the first person I saw was the sane woman I saw in a car when taking a ride with Diana.
She stared at me, and I did the same. I didn’t know why but I kept staring at her. Soon she began to approach me and I stood still looking at her.
“Hey.” She said Smiling and i smiled back.
“Hi Ma’am. Do you know me?” I asked and she shook her head.
“I don’t. But I don’t know why,I feel drawn to you.” She said.
“Me too. What’s going on?” I asked and she shook her head.
“I don’t know. But I will find out. Let’s go for a walk.” She said and I looked back remembering Diana and her father.
“We shouldn’t go far. My girlfriend is back there.” I said and she smiled.
“We won’t.” She said and I nodded smiling faintly.
“Mom.” I heard someone call and we both looked at the direction. Immediately I saw the caller, I recognized him.
“The rude boy? He is her son?” I thought looking at him.
“Hey Son.” She replied smiling.
“What are you doing with this street Bastard.” He said and I grew so angry.
“Shut up Enoch. Act with some courtesy in you. I am taking him for a walk.” She said holding my hand and I looked at her.
“A walk? With this garbage? Mom he is a beger.” He said and I tried so hard not to burst out.
“Get out of my face Enoch.” She said pulling me away.
