Joe anxiously unfolded the note and started reading:
I am so heartbroken and very much disappointed in you and your first wife Rachael who turns out to be my mother. I know the whole truth now after seeing her picture and because of your sins, Nathan and I are the ones paying dearly. Both of you have made us commit the unthinkable and most forbidden sin one would commit in his or her own family. How dare you? You have killed me. I don’t know how to live this life anymore. Thanks to you and mum my life is over. Hope you tell your son the truth.
Joe’s face was wet with tears as he finished reading. “It can’t be, oh my God! What have we done?” He opened the next drawer and got some pills to calm himself. His Blood pressure was rising and he felt the numbness in his legs returning. He got his phone and dialed Nora’s phone number but it wasn’t connecting. He tried several times but couldn’t succeed.
“What do I do?” Joe struggled putting down his crutches and sitting on the chair panicking. His shirt was soaked in sweat.” Racheal, oh my God Racheal what have we done to our son and your daughter?” He covered his face with his hands and wept like a child. He felt his the ground should open and swallow him. He felt like the past had come to hunt him and wished it was all a dream.
He took his phone again and called Nathan
“Son Where are you?”
“Oh dad it’s a surprise for Nora. I’m waiting for someone in town and will be back soon.”
“Please Nathan come back here now! ” He told him almost screaming.
“But Dad what’s wrong you sound awkward. Is everything alright? Tell me what’s wrong dad? You are getting me scared.” This time Nathan was sounding very worried.
“Listen to me son just leave whatever you are doing and come back immediately. it’s about Nora.”
“What? What happened to Nora dad please tell me already.”
“Just come back please I beg you” Joe told his son tears and sweats running down his face..
“Alright dad I’m coming now.”
He disconnected the line and got into his car. As he drove off, linking the main road, he dialled Racheal’s phone number.
“I’m sorry ma something came up and I had to rush home. Please just come to the address I sent you via SMS. I will meet you there.”
“Okay that’s fine my dear” Racheal answered calmly.
Nathan accelerated immediately he disconnected the call.
Driving through the gate into the compound, he banged the door and rushed to the house.
“Dad!” He called out, “Where are you? Nora! ” He called again not knowing whether to check on his father first or Nora’s room.
He rushed to Nora’s room first and when he peeped saw there was no one inside, he dashed back to his father’s room.
“He’s in the study” the maid told him before he could open his father’s bedroom.
He took some quick steps and opened the door and saw his father sitted silently alone.
“Dad what’s going on?” He asked moving slowly to him. “Where is Nora?”
Joe wiped the sweats his face with a piece of cloth. “Come here Nathan” he said indicating him to sit down.
Nathan reluctantly sat and his reaction making him so uncomfortable.
“I’m here father please talk to me you’re not looking fine. What is wrong? Please tell me my Nora is fine ”
“She’s gone Nathan I have no idea where. She left close to an hour ago.”
“What was that? ” Nathan asked looking very shocked. “No she can’t leave me just like that. What happened? What did you do dad! ” he screamed and flared up.
“Calm down Nathan let me explain.” Joe tried to speak
“Oh dad I swear to God if you hurt her I will not forgive you”
Joe shook his head, “Sit down Nathan please I have to tell you something ” He begged in a low tone. He didn’t know where to start from. The look on his son’s face was the same he had when Nancy died and it scared him. He knew what was coming will destroy his son’s life and he was not sure how he will survive his own son rejecting and leaving him all alone again.
“Nathan I’m sorry, trully sorry for what I’m about to tell you.” Joe told his son who was anxiously waiting for him to let the cat out of the bag.
Joe got a letter Racheal wrote to him and handed it.
“What’s this?” Nathan asked surprised seeing his name written on the letter with an unfamiliar hand writing.
“Read it son” Joe whispered, “That letter changed everything.”
Nathan read the letter and couldn’t actually decipher. “Dad who wrote this, my mother? Racheal? What’s this? Please say something”
Joe sighed. “My son listen to me, I didn’t plan or intend for any of this to happen and I’m sorry. That letter was written by your biological mother. Nancy your mum as you know, wasn’t your biological mother.” Joe went on explaining all the details about Racheal and how she left him as a baby.
Nathan shook his head. “So my mother left me? And you are the cause of it all dad? What kind of parent gave birth to me?” he frowned.
“As though having a drunk and flirting father is not enough, my own mother dumped me like I was nothing.” He cried unable to control his anger. He felt his heart failing and everything seemed like a dream.” No wonder you treated my mother like she was nothing to you.”
“Son please forgive me” Joe cried “I am so sorry you have to go through this. The worst part is now you cannot be with Nora.”
“And what has that got to do with her dad? You are now going to take away the only person who keeps me going in this crazy life You brought me up with? ” Nathan screamed at his father
“You know what dad? To hell with your bullshit , I’m out of here and I am getting my woman too.” he said walking to the door.
“I don’t care about you or that woman you call my mother. In fact if she’s alive tell her she’s not my mother. I burried my mother and it’s all your fault.” he snapped.
“Stop Nathan!” Joe shouted. ” I said you can’t be with Nora and I’m serious. Just listen to me.”
Nathan turned and looked at his father. “Why?”
“Because Racheal is the mother to Nora and Nora found out the truth now she’s gone. I have no idea where she’s gone to.” Joe told him extending the picture of Racheal to him.
Nathan remembered the image on the picture in Nora’s phone and indeed it was the same woman. “She’s Nora’s mother Nathan and your mother too.” Joe said almost whispering
“Oh God! ” Nathan cried, “No please tell me this isn’t true, please dad she can’t be my sister. Oh my God what have I done to deserve this punishment?” he cried sliding on the wall till he sat on the floor.
“Oh Please it can’t be. Dad you have killed me” he looked at his father. His face soaked in tears and the most devasted look Joe had ever seen. He held his chair squeezing it tight. His son was suffering and it was all his fault.
“Forgive me son” he begged “Please I’m so sorry I didnt mean to put you through so much agony. Believe me I’m sorry.”
“Believe you dad? Believe you? How would you do this to me? How could you.. I …I ..can’t do this right now” he stammered standing up and heading out.
“Come back Nathan!” Joe called him, but Nathan went and locked himself in his bedroom.
He sat down leaning on the bed and cried bitterly “No this can’t happening.” He struck his head “Come on wake up Nathan. it’s all a bad dream ” he told himself.
After crying for some time he got his phone and dialled Nora’s number. The first went unanswered and he redialled it , it took so much time before he heard a very low voice of Nora on the other side.
“Babe, where are you ? Please come back here. Where are you I will come and pick you. Please tell me please.”
“I’m sorry Nathan but I can’t because I am going far away from here. Have you talked to your father? ” She asked .
“Yeah I have but babe, this cant be true. You know I love you there must be a mistake somewhere. Please come we talk about this I need you Nora please come back my love.”
“Stop calling me that” Nora cried “We are siblings don’t you understand ? it’s an abomination. what we have done is not only immoral, it’s a curse. Please forget you ever knew me Nathan I won’t come back.”
“No no. .listen Nora you can’t do this to us please come on we love each other. It doesnt matter what anyone thinks just listen to me.” Nathan pleaded
“Oh Nathan stop it now, just listen to your self. what you are asking is impossible. forget it” she said and disconnected the call.
“Oh Please dont cut.. ” Nathan cried, he tried to call back but Nora switched off her phone.
“Please please Nora don’t leave me now please….! My world is crumbling!” He cried.
