She stood before them, looking at the small box.
The man spoke
“Is licensed madam…is not doubled barreled, is just a normal one for armatures… just as you requested, no harm if you can handle it, here is it if you have the mind to handle it with care, is not loaded yet. We have already taught you how to load it and use when the needs arises, you have to be extra careful so that you don’t turn it on your self…but madam…you can change your mind and there won’t be any problem at all…
“No…give it to me, and thank you for your service. You can leave now.
The man drove off with the other two and Olivia went back to her car and made a called
“Hello Inspector…good day sir…do you get my message?
“Barrister Olivia, how are you doing over there, i was informed by my men about your request…how many men do you need and they will be sent to you right away…and what exactly is the situation on ground, I couldn’t get the full details from my men, they told me is a criminal offence, consisting of different crimes that was overlaid for years…and you are taking up the case to handle in court, I trust whatever judgement you dares fits…I’m strongly behind you Barrister…so, I’m sending my men to you right away…
“Thank you inspector, I appreciate all your good work and joining hands with me to bring justice for the deserted…you are doing a good job and your rank of truth will keep going higher….as for the men, I won’t be needing them any more…let me handle this myself…going with your men may complicate things…so I will handle this in my own way…and if there’s any changes I will definitely let you know…I will give you feed back on how it goes but I’m sure that self defense is not murder sir…that was why I requested to deal directly with you on this case…thank you once again Inspector…
“Police is your friend…anytime and any day, try and be careful out there…and if you eventually change your mind don’t fail to let us know…in truth… self defense is not murder Barrister and that is more reason you need the police for your defense at all time so that you won’t take laws into your own hands…but I respect your wish…your wish is my command…be good…you can always reach me anytime you need me…
Olivia later ended the call, she looked at the small box which was sitting carefully in the passenger sit, and she removed it from there and placed it under her seat before she zoomed off.
Olivia was already running late, as she entered the express her phone was ringing, Kane was calling she end the call continuously as he calls, different number called but she kept ending it without answering it at all, she was still in her wedding dress and a dark sun glasses.
Her phone rang again and she looked at the caller it was from Doctor Kate, Olivia ended the call again without picking but doctor Kate kept calling and later doctor Mark also started calling, she ignored it and kept driving with speed, she decided to switch off her phone but another call came in and it was doctor Kate calling again, Olivia decided to slow down her speed, she parked her car and answered the call.
“Hello doctor Kate…
“Olivia…oh my God…what is happening, I have being trying to call you since and even asked doctor Mark to try and reach you too…what I’m I hearing…I spoke with Helen not long ago, she called me asking me to reach you immediately before you hurt yourself… she told me everything and I’m still in shock…why didn’t you tell me…you kept it away from me all this while…Olivia, so Kane was Kaka…oh my God, why didn’t you tell me when you found out…and today was suppose to be your wedding…what are you planning? Please, before you make any rational decision tell me where you are… please where are you Olivia…I need to see you…I know you are hurt…we are worried about you…Mark is here with me and he is also worried sick…I know you are hurting but please forgive him and let loose of whatever plans you have for him…don’t do it…Helen told me what you intend to do to him and she couldn’t talk you out of it…she is hoping I will succeed with you….I know how much hate you have held all this years for Kaka not knowing he was close to your skin…I understand is accumulated hate but please forgive him….
“forgive him…forgive him, like seriously….doctor Kate, that was more reason why I refused to take your calls because I know this will be your normal preaching…forgiveness…you don’t understand and I don’t expect anybody to understand anything right now…my mind is made up and I will handle this the way I want to...please stop worrying…I will be alright…but is either he goes or I go…one of us must leave this earth for the other because I can’t stand living in the same planet with Kaka, I have swore it and my words stand doctor…forgiveness is more reason many evil souls are rooming around this world, committing more crime, unleashing terror on the innocent, because they know they will be forgiven anyway. I could have think in the line of forgiveness if Kaka had come to me all this years and tell me the truth, the truth of being behind my parents death, the truth about everything Doctor Kate…if he was remorseful about it and I finally find the courage to let go…or I would have just get him arrested for him to face the justice that he escaped from and move on with my daughter…but Kaka knew all this while and made me to believe that he was Kane….i have thought this through and nothing will change my mind…I would have gone after his father and watch Kaka bleed like I bleed but the man is retired and very old and my battle is not with the old man but with Kaka…Kaka has money and connection…well, the money can’t save him now, not anymore, I have connection…more than he can imagine…so I’m all set for this…I’m sorry doctor Kate…I have always listened to you in everything…but I won’t on this…I’m still bleeding…I hurt so deeply…more than you can imagined…just knowing my worst enemy…the man I have hated with passion and killed several times already in my mind was staring right at my face all this years…he bought freedom with money and also thinks he can buy my forgiveness with money…to hell with his money…I will be his worst night mare…and he will not escape it doctor…I don’t care what it will cause me…I have sold out Olivem...and that was my starting line…if I let it all go…Kaka will think it was his money that work as usual, he will think he bought me over like he has being doing, escaping everything because he believes his money gives him power…I won’t let this go, he can’t afford my forgiveness…is too expensive for him…this time his money won’t save him…please not now doctor…don’t preach to me…because at the end of everything is either him or me…period.
Olivia ended the call, switched off her phone and entered the express again before zooming off.
She has already sent some men to pay the securities at Kane’s gate off, to leave for one week and she has gotten the information that they have left. No obstruction.
Somebody was waiting for her along the express, she picked up the person and when she drove down to Kane’s place she handed her car keys to the man and ask him to drive off with it to an unknown place where her car won’t be easily seen and the man drove off.
Olivia raised her wedding gown as she walked into the gate. She has her own keys to the house so she unlock the house and entered inside.
Kane and every one else got tired from waiting for Olivia, some people even stepped outside talking in a whisper, the media was already taking pictures and recording the event. Kane was breathing hard as his men tries to calm him down. time has gone and people where gradually leaving in shame.
Kane was more ashamed as people looked at him in pity, the media was capturing the moment and he almost fought with one of the coverage men, he broke a camera of another photographer who took picture of him continuously.
His bride has deserted him, Olivia never showed up at the wedding, Kane’s frustration grew as he couldn’t understand why Olivia would do this to him, he has sent people to search for her and even check her in her place and anywhere possible but they all returned back without any positive news.
Kane went inside the dressing room and asked everybody to keep off.
He punch hard on the wall and stamp his feet in anger “what if she was kidnapped, involve in an accident, fell sick or something else happened to her…what if….
Kane couldn’t think straight, He sat on the ground and held his head. This was a great shame to his personality, he will be in the news for the wrong reasons, he has never in his life expected this to happen, Olivia’s phone was switched off, Kane has tried calling Helen earlier and it rang before she also switched off her phone.
Something wasn’t right. Olivia has nailed him to the wall, how could she do such and what happened to her.
People who came for the wedding saw things as it unfold, they quietly lined up at the food side, collecting food and drink, and some sat to eat and enjoy their selves.
A woman well dressed gossiped with another woman as they eat their food at one corner quietly.
“ Fredi, Fredi…haaa…the bride did not show up again…ewoo…things are happening oo…like play the groom has entered news with this o…news people have carried his story and by morning almost everybody will hear, social media, Instagram, Facebook, twitter and news agencies will carry this interesting story…do you see how angry the groom was…he fought with those photographers…if not for his friends holding him he would have done more…his father is a senator…but retired...the groom has money…he opened one big supermarket for his wife to be…the bride has a daughter, her parents were both killed by some gun men many years ago…how terrible…poor child, she was also raped and later had her daughter before she met the young man, the lady is a barrister now…oh you don’t know…now you know…
“Ewoooo, Cordi…you don’t meant it…things are happening oo, aah what a poor child…I don’t know oo until now you are telling me…I only hard they have being together for long because the girl was in school…why will she abandoned her husband to be in the alter like that, the young man have locked himself in the priest dressing room and warned everybody to keep off…even his friends…me I only know a little about the lady and the man…but I never knew about the bride parents…how do you even know more than me Cordi…who told you all of this…
“Me, do you know who I am…hmmm… I know many things Fredi…any old or latest news even if is being whispered inside an ant hole…I will still hear it…indeed things are happening like this one that just happened…is a big disgrace oo but it won’t matter much because there is enough food to eat and take away…this food is very sweet…they may refix the wedding again and we will come and eat, drink and gather gist for those who couldn’t make it down…
Kane later left as night approach, all the people who came for the wedding were all gone except for Wilson who waited for him.
They first drove to check Olivia at her place but nobody was around, even his daughter and the nanny wasn’t home, another drive to Helen’s place but nobody was also around there. Kane drove out again to Olivem supermarket but he got the shock of his life, as he was told that Olivem has being sold to another.
Kane did not believe the story, he left immediately. He knew it can’t be possible because Olivia can not just sell such a huge asset without his knowledge. Kane believed that something wasn’t right.
He drove back home with Wilson that night, his two security that was suppose to be on duty were all gone, nobody on the duty post or in the house even his house keepers. His body was shaking in anger, he try to understand what was really happening but he couldn’t think of any thing.
The first shock was Olivia not turning up for the wedding, the second was finding out that Olivem has being sold to another, he did not believe the last story about selling Olivem because the big sign post of the supermarket was still there, the name is still there, everything is still the same even the staffs, so it can’t be true and Olivia can not do such a thing without informing him.
Now his worries was “where is Olivia and my daughter” what happened to her…what is going on? He try to answer this question but couldn’t.
Wilson spoke to Kane
“Calm down…just calm down…and let’s hope she is alright…something has being going through my mind…do you think she knows…I mean she knows that you are Kaka…?
“what kind of stupid thing are you even saying with your mouth…how can she know…is not possible for her to know like that except you went behind me again to tell her that I’m Kaka…
“I can never do such thing to you…I never told her anything or sat with her again to talk after that first day…I was only wondering in my mind…what if she knows and played cool…she is a very intelligent person and she read law…you could have told her Kane…even before the wedding…I still stand on this…is she doesn’t know now and found out after the wedding that you are Kaka do you think she will forgive you…it will hurt her and is…
“Wilson just keep shut…I don’t need all this right now…my head is already full…I have asked you before... how do you want me to put my mouth and tell her…how do you really want me to say it…that we killed her parents…I was an arm robber, I raped her…i escaped being punished because money speaker louder in our society...and I have known all this while who she was for years now but try to cover for the past…by giving her all I took from her…everything money can buy…I bought it for her but her parents are dead and I can’t bring them to life with money…and finally I will say…I am sorry Olivia …please forgive me for the sake of Emerald our daughter and forgive me because i Made your dreams to come true…jeezzzz…that is the worst confession I have ever hard…I don’t have such courage Wilson…I can’t tell her all that and she must not find out…maybe I will find the courage to do it someday but not today and not tomorrow…I need to find her first…that is my main problem now…please…don’t add to my trouble…by tomorrow the media will carry my picture and name to the public that is if they have not started already…they even captured the moment I was fighting those fools called camera men….my fear is where is Olivia and my daughter…what happened…maybe I should call the police to start a search for them…no, I don’t want to involve the police yet…what is happening to me…who did I offend…why must this embarrassing thing happened to me…why me, how could Olivia do this to me…oh my God ….i…I just want to stay alone…please leave Wilson…I will keep trying her number until I’m able to reach her…leave…I don’t want to see anybody right now…I want to think…all this is just too much…
Wilson later left, Kane kept pacing up and down, he will punch the wall so hard and scream so loud in frustration.
Olivia listened from where she was, she has planted a recording camera which she was listening to everything that Kane and Wilson was saying.
Olivia was upstairs, in one of the rooms in Kane's house still in her wedding gown.
“Is time for the main wedding to begin” Olivia said to herself as she opened the small box.

Story written by AMAH HEART
She was a learned lawyer which made it easy for her to draw out all the plans, she has typed out all the document, everything necessary, and within two weeks everything was ready, she could have leased it out for a period of time, maybe five years or more but she decided to sell it off instead. She contacted real estate managers and they quickly put it out for her and without wasting time buyers began to show interest.
Different buyers contacted her through her estate mangers while some spoke to her direct with their different prices but she was looking out for more than just the money.
She didn’t want to waste time on bargains, Olivia was very particular about time, and she did not have enough of it.
Olivia finally accepted a buyer, different people has being coming, she has put it out as very urgent and will be given to the first set of buyers, and different companies and big personalities has being coming to bargain for the price but she finally got a somebody who she handed all the document to after signing.
The money was quickly transferred to her account, her estate managers were well settled.
The new owner agrees with Olivia to change the name from Olivem to whatever he pleases after four months of buying it and he also agreed to retain the staffs too and can bring in more staffs if he desires so.
Olivem was in her name, the property belonged to her but not anymore, she sold it all out.
After selling Olivem supermarket without Kane’s knowledge she moved on with her next plan.
She handed Emerald over to Helen, who traveled out of the state with her, enabling her to concentrate on her mission.
She paid Emerald’s nanny off and she left.
Olivia drove down to see Kane as he has being calling all this while and she being giving him different excuses of being away but promise to return a week before the wedding to try her wedding gown and every other thing.
Olivia drove down to Kane’s place, he was outside waiting for her arrival, the security man was happy to see her as he greeted her cheerfully.
She went in with excited Kane, immediately they got inside he gently drew her into a hug and try to kiss her.
She turned her face, smile and stepped away.
“honey, what’s wrong, is there a problem…oh wait… is my mouth smelling…I can quickly brush up…hahahaha…I missed you so much honey…everyday without you in it is so empty…I just can’t wait for this wedding thing to be over and I’m so happy you are done with school, I will finally have you all to myself…are you not happy about that, I miss you honey more than you can imagine…
Kane made another attempt to kiss her but she pulled out again from him still smiling as if nothing was wrong, she was putting up a fine acting but deep down she was bleeding.
Olivia wish she can quickly put a bullet to his head so that he can join all the people he has killed, Olivia imagined different things as she stood staring at Kane and smiling so well while her thought was consumed with what she planned for Kane.
She stared at the face of the man she has loved so deeply all this years not knowing he has always being her enemy, her worst night mare, a murderer, her parent’s killer, pretending and lying to her face all this years. She will not spare him, Kane will not escape from her claws. He has escaped from everything that could have punished him for all the children he rendered orphan, for wealthy home him and his gangs wrecked, for all the blood of the innocent he has shed that cry out for vengeance. For those with wounded heart who cried to their grave, lives where turned upside down because of a man like Kaka who escaped all of what could have punished him because of his wealthy father. Nobody avenged for the poor and the helpless people whose hope he destroyed, no justice for the afflicted.
She could have finished up with school and become whatever she wanted to be if Kane has not killed her father, her father would have made her dreams to still come through but the man standing before her killed him with her mother and try to make up at same time receiving glory which wasn’t befitting him.
Kaka was the man that stood before her and not Kane, because Kane died and disappeared from her life the day she found out the truth, every Kane in her vanished like thin air and left a monster called Kaka, her hate was much more than she has ever loved, it consumed her every thinking and whole being.
Olivia was fully in on this, she was not just doing it for her parents but also for many others whose hope was bashed and never gets out of the mess that their oppressor created, justice must be served. “he who kills by the sword must die by the sword”
Kane has incurred many charges in the court of law, serious charges like murder, possession of fire arms, robbery, rape and so many others and such a person doesn’t deserve to walk free after committing all this crime. Kane will have his own part of the general cake so that he can find out how it taste.
“I miss you too Kane, more than you do but you know our wedding is few day from now so let’s try to keep this few days a little holy without getting so intimate…after all I’m still yours, you will have me the way you want…so be patient for the remaining days…wait until the wedding is over…I’m always here for you…
“oh really…oohkay…is kind of difficult just staring at those fine lips of yours without a kiss…or cuddle or even more…you know what I mean…hahahaha…but I will try and wait…I’m a very patient and obedient man when it comes to you…every of your word must stand my royal highness…if you want us to wait…fine, no kissing but maybe a little cuddle…pleaseee
ee…don’t leave me like this…hahaha…having you in my arms is all I want…I won't do more than that…but I’m not promising…hahahaha…I’m so happy honey…finally…I feel like tearing down the roof with this whole joy in my heart…you are going to be my wife, we will both be a great parents to Emerald…a great loving family…that’s my heart desire and is all coming through…thank you for staying by myself all this years…your presence in my life have made me a changed man…I love you now and will continue to love till I draw my last breath…we will have more children if God pleases and grow old together…I’m forever yours, I have seen different women, different sizes and height but I have never seeing a woman so beautiful, loving, caring, so understanding…a great cook, homely and very friendly not just to me but to everyone…like you, you posses it all and even more….you are so special Olivia and I love you with my every breath…and will love you forever…
Olivia kept smiling as Kane came closer and kissed her forehead, he try to hold her but Olivia walked away.
Kane showed her the gown and many other things he bought, he told her he has even booked a makeup artist for her but Olivia told him to pay the person off because she has her own makeup artist who will attend to her.
Kane bought things for her and Emerald, he has paid for everything, the caterers, photographers and the video coverage, the venue inclusive and all the decoration that was already on going.
Invitations has being sent out to people who are looking forward to the day.
Kane urged Olivia to try the gown but Olivia said he can’t see her in her wedding gown before the wedding day because is not right and Kane agreed with her.
Olivia later left with the wedding gowns.
The day finally came and Kane was so excited as him and his men dressed up that morning for his wedding.
Kane checked his bow tie to ascertain if it was in order, he smile into the mirror.
He practiced different smile to know which is lovelier to smile to Olivia when she walks down the aisle to meet him.
Today was the day, he has waited for so long for this day to come and is finally here, he called Olivia that morning to inform her that he was already on his way and Olivia told him that she and her girls were rounding up with their makeups and will soon be on their way.
People were already gathering at the venue as Kane arrive with his men, Wilson was among Kane’s groom men
Kane and his men stepped in with style into the auditorium. A lot of people cheer at them as he walked down with his men in suit to wait for his beautiful wife to arrive.
Olivia stood in front of the mirror and stare into it with a frown.
She was dressed in her wedding gown. Her phone rang and she picked up
“Hello ma…is ready, we are waiting for you…everything is ready…
“Okay, thanks… I’m coming out now….today is a good day…few hours from now I will be married…is a good thing…I’m glad is all going to happen finally…so the wedding first…my groom is waiting…of curse I’m happy…a little patient…I’m coming out gently before I ruin my beautiful gown…
Olivia stepped out with a smile, as she whispered again to herself
“Today… is my wedding day”.

Olivia stood closed to the window, looking out at nothing as she consume her mind with different thoughts, she breathed deeply and continued to stare at nothing.
Her phone was ringing again but she ignored as usual and remained focus at whatever she was staring at. Helen spoke from the background as she move closer to stand with her
“Babe…babe…your phone is ringing again, he is still the one calling…you have been standing at this window for almost an hour and has refuse to say anything…I understand Olivia…how terrible and unbelievable all this are…you have always being a strong woman, I envy your kind of strength babe…I usually say that to you….i still wish I’m as strong as you are…now Is time…time to show this strength that you posses inside of you…you can overcome this…for the sake of those that love you and for Emerald sake…whom you carried without shame, bore and nursed her and have never stop being a great mother to her…Kane or Kaka or whatever his names are can not make you break down…I’m still in a shock, finding it hard to believe is been him all this while…Jeeezzz…this world is a terrible place to live in…so terrible…nobody can tell who is who anymore…maybe I have to check if my husband is one of my step father’s relatives…is very funny but things are really happening…but I know Francis can never have a bloodline from such a terrible man… oh my God, Babe what do you plan to do now… you almost got married to him without knowing this deep…huge secrets…your wedding is three weeks from now…how could Kane…I mean Kaka…whatever…all this years you have being with him and he never find it necessary to tell you who he was…he was probably afraid to say it…is terrifying to even believe all this is happening…
Helen kept on talking but Olivia was quiet and continue to stare at nothing, she wasn’t listening, her mind was occupied with different things, Helen gently touched her and she turned and move away from the window to sit down.
She has being waiting to wake up from this night mare since yesterday, hoping and silently praying is not true, pinching herself just to make sure she is not having a bad dream, she has checked herself severally wondering if she was day dreaming, still waiting to wake up from all of this because the heaviness of it all will be too much to bear.
Olivia suddenly stood up, picked up her car key and phone, she told Helen she was going, Helen asked her where she was going to but she didn’t reply as she stormed out and drove out with speed.
She kept driving until she finally got to where she was going to, she didn’t bother stepping down immediately as she held her steering and place her aching head on it.
She stayed that way for long before finding the courage to step down and quietly walked out.
Olivia passed so many well constructed tombstone, the whole place was so still, soundless. The synonyms that is commonly used to define a deadly quietly place is a grave yard, people usually say “as quietly as a graveyard”, and they were right, because this place was deadly quiet. Olivia thought within herself as she continued to walk down until she got to a twin tombstone, standing beside each other.
An inscription was on it. The tomb wasn’t like this few years ago, but she later paid people who raised it up to a better standard. She couldn’t give her parents a befitting burial, she couldn’t fulfil her promise of making her caring and loving father proud even after they died she still did not make them proud. Her father must have felt disappointed in her, all this years of being with a man who murdered them in cold blood.
Olivia cleared a place and sat down quietly close to the two tomb belonging to her father and her mother.
She did not utter a word immediately as she sat in silent, she face her father’s tomb, shut her eyes and opened it, she breathed down before finding the word to speak out.
“you were my hero, a good husband and father, you loved mother and loved me, you called us “your girls” you cared for mother all through the time she fell ill, you struggled to make sure I attain height, despite there was not enough for the house upkeep you sent me to school to study and become whatever I want to be, I see your struggle which you try to hide sometimes, I can write a long composition about you, and a whole rim of A4 paper will go half from writing about you father, you died while trying to save me. You saw it all even before it happened…mother was worried about you, we wondered what was eating at you, but you couldn’t even say what exactly you battled within your mind, we never knew that the real darkness was coming until it came and totally consumed you and mother and I ask my self severally why it spared me…I wanted to die that night, I have wished we all disappeared from this crazy and wicked world… But for whatever reason I was spared, I had Emerald, she is growing so well... Father, I finished up with school, I have everything except two of you, and do you know who takes credit for all this so called “good things” in my life, do you know who is behind it all..? is you and mother’s killer, Kaka…hmmm. it has being Kaka all this while, all this years it was Kaka…my worst night mare, the man who killed you and mother untimely, together with his friend, they killed you and mother and crumble my entire world and since then i vow with this your grave never to spare such a man, I studied so hard for the same curse, to bring people like him to book, I never knew that my worst enemy, the dreaded devil himself was the same love of my life, the man I believed to be so perfect, and angelic being. Father our wedding is few weeks from now, I could have being long time married to him without truly knowing he was the man I have fought in my mind all this years…you and mother’s killer. Hmmm, father I felt like I have disappointed in everything, I failed in my promises too. Sorry is not enough to explain how I feel. i…I practically killed you over and over again when I went about with the same man who killed you first…he tried to make up with his money, sending me to school, opening a supermarket and many other things but he has failed to bring you and mother back to life, his money still has not being able to bring you both to life…father do you know the painful part…Kaka did not face any judgement, he walked free after unleashing terror, I listened to him yesterday and hard his friend said that he took all the punishment meant for both of them and went to prison while he was sent abroad, Kaka did not face any kind of punishment father, not from the land, not from the law or even nature… his money saved him from all of this…but it won’t save him forever…I will make sure of that…I hate when somebody preach to me about forgiveness, do they understand what forgiveness really means, I could forgive a man if he cheat on me and hurt me, I will forgive a man who stepped on my feet unknowingly, a man who ran into my car and I caused an accident… I can also forgive this, I could forgive anything but how do I forgive a man who finished an entire family, a man who killed my sweet mother and my loving father, beat and raped me without remorse, we have never offended any one, father you thought me how to live a simple life and stay in my lane and I followed all this teaching carefully until the same man I looked up to disappeared like a wind by the devil’s angel himself.. People who talk about forgiveness...hmmm… I just wish they will take a walk in my shoes, feel what it was like to loss a kind and daring man that you are…a homely and understanding mother…my loving caring parents to a man called Kaka, Kaka traveled out after the whole mess, while I mourn he was living his life, while you continue to lie in this cold grave he was having the best of his life and saying to himself “I’m not proud of my past but it has turned out to be a blessing because Olivia and Emerald who is my biological daughter will be mine, we are meant to be one family, my past is turning out to be my blessing”. hahaha, Father can you believe he said that, He actually did…what a lame and stupid excuse, a very nice way to move on with his life. I can’t bring you back…if money would have…I’m sure you and mother will be alive right now…I will return soon to give you details of how it all went. This is my battle father, Kaka scaled through everything, the land, the law and even nature failed to punish him but I’m sure he won’t escape from my claws, maybe it has being divinely arranged for this day to come when he will get his own share of punishment, from me and I won’t fail, I won’t fail you this time. I will certainly get my own pound of flesh…and come back with details for you and mother… I don’t know when but I will certainly return. Keep resting father…keep resting mother.
Olivia wiped off her tears and walked away.
She zoomed off and went home, her daughter was home and doing her home work on the reading table while the nanny makes dinner.
Olivia’s phone was ringing again and it was Kane, she picked it up
“Olivia…where on earth did you keep your phone, I have being calling since yesterday, I was already planning to drive down to your school to know what is happening…why aren’t you taking your calls…and you did not return any of the calls…Olivia, are you alright over there…you got me scared and worried…what happened to your phone…I even try calling your friend Helen…just to ask if she has heard from you but she is not taking her own calls either…her phone rang continuously but she did not pick or return my calls…I don’t understand why you will always make me to worry so much over you…do you know how I feel if I don’t get to hear from you…I will become scared thinking that something bad might have happened… Olivia is not right…my heart has being troubled since yesterday….
“I’m sorry, i misplaced my phone, and couldn’t find it on time because it was on silent…I could have called with another person’s phone but I have being so buried with this project work, trying to finalize everything so that I can come home to you…I’m sorry Ka..kane…I will keep my phone close to avoid missing your calls again…

Kane started hurrying with the wedding plans, if Olivia officially becomes his wife it will be hard for her not to forgive him if the truth finally surface, and maybe then he will find the gut to tell her the real truth which he has not being able to say or better still he will allow the past to remain where it belong. He doesn’t have to tell her anything for peace sake.
He hurried the people printing the wedding cards to perfect their work on time, he has gotten his wedding attire, everything he will need and also for his best man too.
Olivia who was back to school to finalise her project defence was speaking with him one afternoon and Kane said he has already gotten his wedding things and the cards has been printed waiting for distribution, everything was almost ready from his side, it remains only hers.
“Kane…slow down…you seem to be running at a speed of recent, I thought we are suppose to chose the type of wedding card we want to do, we have not concluded on the colour yet, and me and you suppose to do it together when I return back from school… before even taking it for printing…I’m surprise to hear you say is already printed…you did not send the colour or pattern for me to see again…
“is beautiful Olivia and I know you will love it when you see it…I will take a picture of it and send it for you to see what it looks like…I can’t wait to make you my wife…I have patiently waited for so long already…we could have being married before now if not that you said you wanted to concentrate with school and finish up before marriage and I waited…but no more waiting because is finally going to happen…everything from my side is almost ready…when you return you will go and try some wedding gowns and see which will fits…if you send me the type you really like I would have gone and get it myself…so that when you come you wouldn’t have to stress yourself over doing all that…honey should I check out some wedding gown shop online for you?
“haa Kane…slow down…stop being in a hurry…I’m not going anywhere…I’m all yours…I have always being…wedding is only to make it official…you are running at a speed…I told you I will be coming next week, so relax…next week is not far from now…when I come back I will go and check out wedding gowns and also things for Emerald, I will also like to check the bridal stuffs…and my best lady too…focus on your own…I will do mine, please don’t share all the card yet…I have a lot of people I want to give personally…so just chill until I get back…alright…I love you…byeee.
Kane has settled Wilson after the long misunderstanding, they were cool pals again.
Wilson set up his business and refurnished his house. He visited Kane one day and they sat inside to drink and talk.
Olivia who was suppose to come back the following week, decided to come home on time to plan well with Kane so he doesn’t rush up with the whole wedding plan in her absence and end up making a mistake, she wanted to foresee things as it goes.
Olivia did not tell Kane that she was coming back, she has planned to surprise him, she first stopped at her place, checked on her daughter before driving down again to Kane’s house.
She parked her car outside the gate and quietly went inside, as the security opened open the gate and greeted her warmly, she smile at him, he asked her why she parked outside, she told him she want to surprise Kane and the man started laughing as he thanked God for his boss and madam, who’s love affair was made in heaven.
Olivia sneaked into the house, she knows every corner of the house and how to move without being seeing or heard.
She followed through the back door and came in quietly, she saw that Kane was with Wilson as they drink and laugh, they were both looking drunk.
Olivia wanted to come out and shout “surprise” but decided to wait a little more.
Kane will be so happy to have her home and together they will sit and plan well before Kane will rush up with plans and make a mistake in her absence.
She listen to Wilson and Kane talk and laugh as old friends, she also giggle within herself as she imagined Kane’s reaction when he eiy see’s her, he will be so surprised .
Wilson spoke after gulping down a drink in a glass cup and poured another for himself…
“I have being so busy setting up my business, thank you man…the money you gave me was all I have being asking for to start up myself…is not really a big thing, you have this money yet saw it as a big deal to help long time paddy…you should be happy to help me out after spending years in prison, prison life has always have a negative effect on people who made it out of there…those who can’t stand the shame and how to start all over again take their own life but that is not in my case…I just wanted a little support and you saw it as a big deal…helping me is not even anything compared to what I did for you, you would have being a dead man today if Olivia’s father has shot you that night as you went on digging into his daughter... that’s really pathetic…I can’t imagine, he almost took hold of that gun and blow off your brain until I intervened, I saved you and still went ahead to suffer in prison while your parents send you abroad to enjoy…guy…you have not tasted what suffering is like…you have never suffered, I will tutor you on that…so helping me to stand back on my feet suppose to be your own way of thanking me for everything I did for you…but that aside…I’m happy that you reasoned like a man and think it through…I can still hear those your punches as they sound in my ear drum, you beat me real hard because I wasn't well prepared…it was unexpected…but Kaka…you are wicked o…punching without mercy….what if I die that woke me up from sleep that morning…rushed all the way down to finish me up all because I mentioned Kaka to Olivia…that means if I had said more than that you would have truly killed me without guilt…chai…Kaka my man…I survived that night that tiger and the rest of the gang member died, I survived being beaten to death by those mob and police men, I survived the prison life and when I thought I was free from all of this…my friend decided to come and punch me to death…ahhh…I had a terrible headache for days…remember I told you about it…it was so serious…but I survived again because I was born to always survive…anyway my business is kicking up real fast and all thanks to you for finally compensating me, I have being so busy trying to set it up and I have not being able to ask you this few days how the wedding preparation is going, you promise to open up to Olivia that day…do you succeed in doing that…
“well, I’m happy for you, setting up something for yourself is really good…and you cursed all the beating…you should have never sit to talk with her in my absence because you know how I will feel about that and even if you talk, you needed to be careful not to mention anything implicating, I have being able to protect myself and cover up my mess all this years, you can’t come and blow it all off over night…I have invested so much on Olivia trying to make up for the past and all she lost and I was good with that…she see’s me as Mr perfect and I want it to remain so even after getting married….and the preparation for my wedding is going on fine…I have printed the cards and even started distributing some of it, gotten my suit and other necessary things…Olivia will be here next week to get her own stuffs, I’m just waiting for her to return so that we can proceed to the alter, Wilson…about telling her my past story…I can’t tell her…how do I even start…where do I even start such confession, will I come to her and then say…”honey, please forgive me…I was the gun man that raped you and cursed your parents death…and I escaped all punishment because my parents are wealthy, I met you again unknowing at first but later found out that you were the same slender girl back then and I was happy to know that you had a daughter who is my biological child…I tried to cover up my mess all this years…but I do love you and please forgive me…let the past remain in the past…will such confession work…how do I even tell her such…I tried to say it but it hanged in my truth…I couldn’t Wilson, so I decided to wave it off, get married to her and live as one family, she doesn’t really have to know…is better she doesn’t know, what she doesn’t know won’t kill her, I mess up big time in the past, I’m not proud of what I did but it has turn out to be a blessing to me in disguise and to her also, me having her and also my daughter and she getting her dream come true, dream of finishing school, and owning a big supermarket, I can’t bring her parents back to life and I can’t undo what has being done but will try and make it right so that she will not have any reason to doubt or worry about anything… so whatever happened should be kept in the past….i will always try to cover up my tracks and in that way we will all be fine…I want to quickly get married to her now that she is done with school so that she will not be able to leave even if she finds out who I am in the future of which I know she won’t but that will be if you will also keep your mouth shut and try to get use to calling me Kane…practice it continuously so that you won’t call me Kaka again to her hearing…me and Olivia are meant to be together and even the past can not separate that fact…whatever happe…..
Olivia’s leg was shaking, she couldn’t stand anymore, she staggered severally as she ran out of the gate into her car and zoomed off.
The happy security was surprise to see Olivia ran off with speed, he thought within him “maybe my boss did not like the surprise and got her angry and she left...or she planned to surprise my boss and got her own surprise too which made her to leave so soon, maybe she is coming back again, she probably want to go and bring her daughter or something else, my boss and madam has never had a quarrel to my hearing…so it can’t be trouble but why do madam left in such a hurry and I can tell that she was crying or maybe I was mistaken…but whatever it is, I am preparing myself for their wedding day, there will be enough eating and drinking that day…
After sometime Kane walk Wilson who was going back to his place as darkness settled everywhere. As they got to the gate, the security man happily asked Kane.
“Sorry to ask you sir…do you see madam…she was here before…
Kane looked at the security as if he was insane.
“Which madam are you talking about? Kane asked the security in a funny way.
“I mean our madam, the only madam here…Madam Olivia…I thought you saw her when she….
“…Are you on a cheap drink…madam is in school and will be coming back next week, you must be seeing double…I wonder what you are talking about…stop babbling and open the gate…
Kane said in a funny way as him and Wilson started laughing, they ignored the security man who was acting confused.
The security man wondered if madam has become a ghost that his boss could not see her when she came in and went out in a hurry.
Kane later went back inside and ignored the confuse security man who doesn’t seem to know what he was saying.
he went inside to call Olivia, but her line was off, he left a message that he was missing her and can’t wait to have her all to himself.

Olivia was more relaxed after talking with Doctor Kate.
Emerald did not go in with her to doctor Kate's office, Olivia asked her to sit at the reception close to doctor's office and wait for her but by the time she came out Emerald was not there any more.
Doctor Kate who was with Olivia asked the nurses there on the girl's whereabouts and as they were telling doctor Kate that Doctor Mark took her out they saw Emerald walking down with Mark, a bottle of unopened juice and snacks was in her hand.
As Olivia was about scolding her daughter for going out without her notice Mark spoke in her defence.
" I'm was all my fault...i wanted to tell you first but decide not to disturb your talk with doctor Kate...we just went to the cafeteria...she was sitting here bored so i took her along.. I'm all my fault...she did not even want to follow because she's felt you maybe looking for her and she hasn't touched any of the snack food or drink that I got for her...she wanted to show you first before eating...I must confess that you are really bringing her up to be strong willed...just like you...but I'm sorry for taking her without your knowledge...
"Is okay Mark...i was worried but become relaxed when I saw her with you... your cafeteria do they have cooked food or is it just snacks... Emerald must be hungry...and I'm also hungry...we haven't eaten breakfast and is already noon...
Mark was more than willing to take Olivia and Emerald back to the cafeteria.
Olivia thanked Kate and Kate hugged her warmly and also hugged Emerald as they went with Mark to eat.
" I can see you are doing good...being the CEO of OLIVEM supermarket is indeed a big work but you got no worries... your managers got you covered...I believe your friend, Helen is alsoe doing great with her husband... when is your wedding coming up...and hope you will invite me...
"OLIVEM is well managed, I only go there to see how everything is going and how the staffs and customers and doing... Helen is fine... well, she is still over four years now that she has being married and getting so worried but her husband is not so worried like she is... he encourages her to wait on God's time and I'm certain they will have a baby at the right for me... I'm getting ready to walk down with my soul mate... I'm almost through with law school, I guess the most important part is defending my projects and moving on to the next about you...I thought you will be married by now...
"Uhmmm...hmmm...well... I'm not...maybe I'm yet to meet the right one...I was in a relationship for almost two years, i thought it was going to lead us into marriage but it didn't...she relocated to another country because of her kind of job... and it becomes a distance relationship which she couldn't cope at a point after meeting a new guy over there, she told me about it and I have no choice than to let her go... she got married to the guy early this year, I couldn't attend but I sent my blessings to them...well still hoping to start dating again... soon... but I have being So occupied with work...maybe because I want it that way... occupying my mind with things I Love to elder brother and his wife ask of you sometimes and I told them that you were married already...hahah
a..I will settle down at the right time...when God wills it... I'm not rushing ahead of myself on that... taking everyday at a the way I'm happy to see you and Emerald...I know you speak with Kate over the phone often but I don't get to see you except if you come down... and about your friend, Helen...if she feels she can't wait any longer for the child to come they can try the IVF process...I know many couples are going towards that line too but her marriage is just four years she should be patient and her desires will be granted... Just like I'm patiently waiting for my desires to become reality... congratulations in advance...and hope you Will remember to invite me when the time comes... I haven't changed my mobile line or house in this my complimentary card... I guess you lost my line...I thought of calling sometimes but don't know if it was okay to do so...I will be looking forward to your call of invitation...
They laughed together while eating and talking about so many other things, she collected his complimentary card.
Olivia Later left the hospital with her daughter and drove back to her place.
She switched on her phone after leaving it off for long, Kane's text messages and voice note poured in.
She was already tired to start driving down to his place but she still did.
She left Emerald with the nanny and drove to Kane's place that evening.
As she drove down Kane was calling again but she didn't bother picking up because she was very close to his place.
Olivia drove inside as the gate man opened the gate.
She parked, picked up her bag and went in.
Kane was upstairs talking on phone with somebody as she walked inside. She can hear him talking loudly on the phone with some one.
Her favorite music was playing in the background.
Olivia quietly went upstairs and suddenly pause as she hard her name.
"...I have gone to her place twice today...even her supermarket too she's not there... she's not there...her friend is not in town...I checked there also...I don't know what to do...or where to search for her... she's not taking her calls either... I'm afraid and deeply worried... should have being careful when speaking to you think she you know wether she found out tha...
"To know what exactly... Olivia interrupted Kane who was shock to see her as he turn to face her.
He stood not knowing what to do as Olivia approach him gently.
"To know what...and found out what... Olivia stood in front of Kane with a questioning look.
Kane thought of what to say quickly as an idea came to his head.
" I was going to trave with you to the Bahamas after our do our honey moon there... so...I was planning that with Wilson and I told him not to let you know, it was supposed to be a
.I don't know what to say or think again since yesterday night that made you so angry and disappear without a word since morning... and switch off your phone...I don't know what really got you upset since last night...I thought Wilson mentioned that to you also and maybe other things that makes you think I'm keeping something away from you...
Olivia still stood looking at Kane, she was happy to hear that they will be going to the Bahamas Island to spend their honeymoon.
She wondered what got into her to think that a perfect man like Kane who has never hurt a fly will ever hurt anyone, never in the past or in the present. Kane was a special being, she was happy to have such a sweet and caring man who will soon become her forever soulmate.
She kept watching him as Kane tries to clean his eyes which was becoming teary.
he shakes while talking to her, Kane later knelt down, Olivia was surprised as she kept looking at.
"Olivia, I can't live without you... I'm sorry for everything, I'm sorry if I hurt you in anyway, I have always tried to be a Pefect man to you but I'm not perfect...i have done things in the past of which I'm not proud off...please don't leave me... I know I don't deserve someone like you... but I love you... with my whole being Olivia... I love you and Emerald...I know marriage should be built on trust and truth... that is why I decided to say this...I don't know how to start this but i have something I really want to tell you.... you deserve to know...I'm afraid..I don't want to loose you... I'm so afraid Olivia but I have to say it anyway...uhmm...I use to...I mean I was a...a...hmm...a...uhmm... Olivia... will you ever forgive me...I...I have being so terrible...I use
Olivia went to him as Kane struggle with words. She asked him to stand and he did, she went into his arms and Kane held her very close.
She later look up at him before saying
"I can't hold any wrongs against you...I don't know what you are struggling to say but i will always forgive you no matter what it May be...I love you Kane... and I'm sorry for over reacting this days... I'm sorry for making you to worry so much... now I'm here let's focus...we have a wedding to plan...
She kissed Kane and he quickly responded
And with that Kane forgot about everything he had wanted to say to Olivia as they went on with their passionate kiss.
Kane gave a sigh of relief as he held Olivia in his arm.
All worries and doubt was forgotten at that instant
