For the past four weeks, Joe was still struggling, his legs still numb. He however felt good because of the presence of his son and the care from Nora. Even at his age Joe couldn’t help but notice the gentle spirit and her beauty. Slowly he started developing feelings for her and he realised he felt this inner peace whenever she is around him. He had not felt that for a woman in a long time.
He looked at her as she massaged his legs gently feeling the passion. He could not feel his legs yet but his heart could feel her hands in him. He was lost in thoughts as he analysed the figure and parts of Nora that he didn’t notice his son who had watching him from the door for sometime.
Over the period Nathan had noticed his father was developing some unfamiliar attachment to Nora. He swallowed hard as he felt a sting of jealousy in his throat. He was sure he too had strong feelings for Nora. She was what every sane man would desire, but he took his time.
Recalling a day he had taken her for shopping, it was on a weekend, they had driven in silence for minutes before he spoke up.
“Nora , I remember you told me about your father, that he’s from Edo state but based in Lagos where you were born. When did you move here? ”
“Well” Nora started “We came back about four years ago my mother is from Delta, so she insisted we move here.”
Nathan looked at her as she talked about her mother. He couldn’t help feel a bit of jealousy. He still missed his late mother and from the description of the mother Nora was giving. He could tell she was a good woman.
“I admire you” He told he honestly told her.
“Sometimes I wish my mom was still alive. There are things that I wish I would ask her.”
Nora laughed. “Mmmmm Doctor what else do you want to know? You are an adult I’m sure you have had some necessary lessons of life already. ”
“Oh no” Nathan looked said as he looked away. While the car was moving at a moderate speed.
“I would want to know for instance about women.”
“What?” Nora laughed loudly. Her voice captivating Nathan. He felt the voice like a sweet music. Everything about her fascinates him.
He smiled before answering. “How to know and read a woman’s thoughts”
Nora looked at him. ” And who told you that you can read a woman’s mind?” She asked.
“Well I would want to know for instance what Nora thinks about me”
Suprisingly she smiled without looking at Nathan.
“Why won’t Nathan just ask me then?” She said in a low tone.
He became quite for some seconds.
“Yes!” In his mind, he couldn’t help feel great she had noticed him.
“Alright let me see, tell me now how you feel about me” he said looking very serious.
Afraid of where the coversation was leading to, Nora replied, “Not today my dear. I have only known you for just four weeks and I cannot easily points exactly how you are and things about you” she smiled.
“And by the way, are you not missing your home and friends
Nathan chuckled as he drove the vehicle to a parking area at the shopping mall.
“I love being around you” He said looking straight at her face, though he couldn’t see her eyes direct since it wasn’t focused on him.
“Shall we?” Nora interrupted avoiding his gaze as much as possible.
Now, here he stood by the door watching his father feeling so comfortable at the touch of the woman he had feelings for. He knew one of the major weaknesses of his father was women and that somehow if it wasn’t for his paralysed legs he would have made a move for Nora long before now.
He cleared his throat and Nora who was busy doing her job and his father looked at him.
“Hey!” he called out.
” Hey son. Didn’t see you coming” Joe said
“Yeah I noticed” said Nathan
“So are you ready for the visit to the hospital? I want to drive you there.”
“I am.” Joe responded looking at Nora who had stood aside watching father and son having conversation.
“I’m ready too” she said.
“Okay then let me get the car keys” Nathan told them as he left the room.
Nora got the wheel chair and helped Joe on it as she sat him down. He held her shoulders his eyes on hers.
Nora smiled at him. “Don’t mention Sir remember I’m just doing my Job.”
“I know” Still holding her not letting her stand properly. He touched her shoulder gently. “You are my light Nora” he whispered. “I don’t know how I could have survived without you, your presence here gives me hope. I know you do all you to make me healed and feel good about myself.”
Nora looked at Joe and both eyes met, “You are welcome Sir ” she told him as he smiled his face brightened.
“Call me Joe please” he told her.
Nathan walked in at that point and Joe quickly dropped his hand.
“Well I guessed it’s time” he announced.
“Yeah!” Nora answered feeling uncomfortable.
Later that evening Nora sat in her room after heloi Joe on his wheel chair from the parlour to his room. She switched off the light and sat on her bed in her room holding a pillow and was feeling bad about what transpired earlier in the sitting room. That night instead of talking and laughing as Nathan always did he was quite. She wondered what was wrong with him. Nathan was silent all through the journey to the hospital and back home.
She and Joe where the only ones talking and Nathan only nodded or answered a question briefly. He ate dinner in silence and when they started watching the television, he was sternly looking at the TV but one could tell his mind was not at ease.
Joe had asked if everything was okay with him and he had answered saying he is fine. And went to his room.
After thinking through it, Nora decided to approach Nathan the following day to find out what was wrong with him.
In the morning as she went to check on Joe, she was informed Nathan had gone out and would only be back after some days. He said he had an urgent matter to attend to. This Joe explained to her
“Oh I see,” Nora said.
“By the way I want to go out this weekend I have to go and see my parents. I have not seen them since I came here.” She explained calmly.
Joe felt bad she was leaving but he knew she was right, she had barely gone out since she came.
“It’s okay” he finally told her.” I will miss you Nora, I mean who will be checking on me and taking care of me?”
“I’m sure Dr Nathan will help” she smiled.” I will be back soon.”
Racheal and her husband were happy seeing their daughter visiting home. They spent time chatting. She was told her brother was in the campus studying.
“I have been offered a job here by a company” Her father told her. “I was almost getting fed up staying in the shop the whole day.” Nosa added
“I’m happy about this” Nora told her parents.”
She turned to her mum and asked
“Does this mean you will be the one taking over the businesses here?”
“I am sure” Racheal replied. “I’m also bored here at home.”
Later that evening Racheal walked into Nora’s bedroom.
“Nora!” she called her, ” I have noticed you don’t look so happy, is there a problem?”
Nora shook her head “t’s nothing mom am okay.”
“No you’re not” Racheal insisted.
“Tell me now I’m your mother, who knows I might help you.”
Nora cleared her throat. “You won’t back down will you? ” she laughed
“No” . Racheal answered.
“Okay mom.” She sighed. “It’s just that I’m confused. There are two men, one is older and the younger one they are father and son.” She paused.
“Yes go ahead ” Racheal said.
“Mum I dont know what to do, I mean this man is handsome and he’s been so sweet to me and the emotions in his eyes keep drawing me closer to him, on the other hand, his son is handsome too with a very attractive character. His charm is irresistible and he seems interested in me but he’s not really said anything. I dont know mom. It seems I have feelings for both father and son. What am I going to do? I cannot be the cause of trouble for both of them. I care so much for them but I feel I’m betraying them.”
Racheal was quite for some time and shook her head,
“Nora I know you have grown and independent, but I am your mother and above everything your hapiness comes first. You have to chose wisely. It’s not every man that turns out to be what they display, be careful in your choices. If you had to sit down and think through this, your heart can never lie. it will guide you, don’t be carried away easily when it involves love.
And the other thing” she continued.
“Take your time to know the man before you open your heart to him. You cannot afford living a life of regrets, trust me its not a good thing, the pain and hurt of regrets will haunt you for life. Have it in mind that if you are not careful you will end up destroying that family. I don’t know them but coming between them isn’t a wise thing to do. Decide fast before you all get hurt. Be wise Nora, be wise” Racheal concluded and she walked out closing the door as Nora watched her in silence.
