Since it was a Saturday, Nora and Nathan spent the day together. He called his father to let him know he wasn’t going be home, with the excuse that he had work to do in the night.

“See you tomorrow son” Joe told him on the phone.

He later took Nora out for dinner at an excutive lodge where they had a great time together.

Nora sat quitely and looked at Nathan. He was the man of her dream and she had no regret lossing her virginity to him. She was 100% sure he loved her. Looking at him from head to toe as he spoke on the phone, giving some patient instructions, she smiled slightly, he was not just a good medical doctor but a great man with an open heart. She couldn’t wait to tell her mother about him, so she brought out her phone and sent an SMS to her.

“Hello mum, thank you for your advice. I made a choice, I am with the son right now and I am happy….good night.”

She put back her phone as Nathan finished making his call.

“Did I make you bored with that long call?” He asked rubing her hand.

“Yes” she teased, “I was almost going back home. What’s the point of being on a date with someone who works all the time? ”

“Come on babe I am sorry I didn’t ask for the call, Someone needed my help.”

She smiled again. “Hmmn I need compensation” she giggled.

He stood and lifted her. “You know I can’t fail to do that?” He said kissing her.

“What about that? ” He asked after a few minutes.

“Hmmm, almost there” she laughed.

“I see you want everyone here to start pointing my pants here eh?”

“It wouldn’t be so bad since I’m here” she teased and they both started laughing.

A week later. Joe had started making progress by walking around the house with the help of crutches. He was actually excited about it. The atmosphere of the house was good as everyone seemed happy. Moreover, the relationship between Joe and Nathan had greatly improved. Nathan would even ask his father about the company and how things are.

One day Joe called Nora to his room. I’m glad you came here my dear” he told her, “You have some good magic which has brought sanity and peace to my home. My son is getting closer to me and he’s always in a good and jovial mood. Whatever you have given him please don’t stop.” He smiled.

Nora looked at him and smiled too. “What do you mean Joe? Nathan and I are just friends ” She explained looking shy.

“Drop the act Nora ” Joe told her.

“I know you and my son are together it’s evident the way you two look at each other and I see you both sneaking in each other’s rooms” he added.

“What?” Nora asked embarrassed.

“Hmmm am sorry sir ” she whispered “I didn’t know you..”

“Oh forget it Nora I understand.” He shrugged

“So you mean you are not upset with us? I mean me and your son being together?” She asked him, worried of what he would say.

“On the contrary” Joe answered.. “I’m thrilled. You two are good together and I am happy my son is happy and he found a good woman. Every parent wishes for that am not so much cursed after all” he added.

Nora thanked him. “But you have no idea what a budden it was hiding this from you.”

Joe laughed “You are free my dear, go on and enjoy the love of your youth. It’s not everyone who is as lucky as you are. Other people never get to enjoy the pleasure of falling in love.”

Nora stood up and bent giving Joe a hug. “Thank you so much , I mean it” she said happily.

Just then Nathan walked in.

“Hey son !” Joe called his son

“We were just talking about you”

“ What’s going on?” he asked looking at Nora and his father.

“He knows” Nora spoke up.

“What? ” Nathan asked surprised.

”Yeah ! Nathan he knows about us” she told him again..

“Dad!” Nathan looked at his father, ” since when? ”

Joe smiled, “It doesn’t matter Son what matters is I see you two are happy and I am proud of you both. So go ahead and live your lives and stop kissing in shadows like ghosts” he teased them.

“Oh dad, what a relief!” Nathan told his father holding Nora by the shoulders.

Joe smiled “Just be careful and don’t hurt each other.”

Nathan looked at Nora. “Don’t worry dad that is not happening any time soon.” He said kissing her hand. “She means the world to me dad I won’t hurt her deliberately.”

Joe smiled “That’s good, go now I need to take a nap” he told them and watched them walk away hand in hand. He shook his head. “How wonderful!” he whispered.

It was on a Friday. A day to her birthday Nora was seated outside helping Joe with organising and arranging some files.

“Hey Nora please get me a blue diarly from my study I need to take note of this information.” He told her.

Nora stood up and left through the back door.

That morning Nathan had told her he was trying to organise something for her birthday. Though he didnt mention what he was up to. “It’s a suprise” he had told her.

unknown to her Nathan had called her mum. He got a number from her phone.

He was trying to find out what Nora really loved.

“I’m her boyfriend” he introduced

“Oh yeah she told me about you I can’t wait to meet you.” Racheal answered excitedly.

” Same here ma” he told her.

“Okay, listen Nora’s dad and I planned to pay Nora a surprise visit tomorrow so with this, we can all surprise her.”

“Yeah great idea!” Nathan exclaimed, “let me text you my home address then”

“Yes please. Thanks” Racheal told him and the conversation ended.

Nora entered the study and didnt see the blue diary Joe sent her to get. She went and opened the chest drawer to look for it. When she lifted it, it slid from her hands and fell. A folded letter in an envelope fell along to the floor. As she tried to pick it up, her heartbeat increased as she sighted the picture also on the floor. “Mum?” She whispered.

Picking it up she held it with her hands shaking. A younger Racheal probably as old as she was then. Nora sat down not knowing what to think, all emotions filled her heart together with flashback memories. She slowly placed it down and looked at the letter still on the floor. then she saw it was written in her own mother’s hand writing for Nathan.

“What is all these my God?” She was now sweating as she opened the letter to read.

Dear Nathan,

I am very sorry my son. By the time you read this maybe you would be a man or maybe old enough to read.

I write to you with deep sorrow and pain in my heart. I am sorry I wasn’t around to see you grow but I’m sure you will grow up a strong and good man.

I couldn’t bear the pain of living with your father any longer. My son, I hope you learn to forgive me one day. I know it’s not right but understand that I needed to start over. Yes, I want a new beginning in my life.

I know your father will love you as much as I do and maybe you will help him grow up to change his irresponsible way.

Sorry Nathaniel my son, I love you with all my heart. Please forgive me.

With love from your mother Racheal.

Nora fell down to the floor as her heart failed her. She could not breath properly. “Oh my God!” she cried

“I’m in love with my own brother? I. ..I.. slept with my own brother.” She cried almost loudly, “No way..please God this can’t be!” All her strength drained.

She quickly ran to her room and packed her bag. She didn’t know what to do next but very much determined to go away from that house. Taking her phone she looked around the room and a flash of Nathan and herself together came to her mind. That morning

He stood near the wardrobe and she walked to him. “Where have you been honey? I missed you” She told him.

“I was doing some morning workouts babe and am here for you now all the energy pilled up” he said embracing her..

“I love you Nathan” she whispered as he reached for her mouth.

“Say that again” he whispered

“I love you Dr Aloba ” she told him and the two of them got tangled in wild ecstasy.

Nora wiped her tears. “Oh no he cannot be my brother, no please God let this be a dream please” She cried sitting down.

She checked her phone contacts and dialled the number for the taxi driver who used to pick her up especially when she worked late night at the hospital. “Come over now please ” she told him giving him directions. “You will find me by the road side” she added.

Outside Joe noticed Nora had taken a long time. Probably she hasn’t seen the diarly he sent her to fetch. He took his crutches and walked to the entrance, reaching the study he found the room empty. He called out her name and there was no response.

“Where is she? ” He asked, going behind the desk.

He saw the diarly on the floor and a folded letter for Nathan from Racheal beside it.

His heart skipped. “She has seen this”. He quickly called the maid to look for Nora.

She returned after a couple of minutes “She’s gone” the maid announced. “I dont think she is in this house.”

“What? ” Joe shouted..

“Sir the workers outside said they saw her get in a cab carrying her bag few minutes ago. I have checked her room all her things are gone. She left this for you” the maid handed a folded note to him.
