LASTING MEMORY. Episode 8
Olivia happily carried the tray of food to serve Kane her fiancee and Wilson his dear friend
She can see that Kane and Wilson were quietly talking as she approached them unaware. It was more of an argument than a friendly talk, Kane seems to be angrily arguing over something and Wilson wasn’t taking it cool
She knew is must be a friendly fight which happens among close friends so she waved it off and approached with full smile
As Olivia got close she suddenly hard Wilson mentioned Kaka, she was shocked and immediately the tray fell off from her hands to the ground, and everything in the tray splashed the whole place
The moment Kane hard the sound he was surprised as he turn to see that it was Olivia
He quickly rushed to her as she bent over the broken cups and spilled food on the ground
Wilson also followed.
“Honey…what happened…are you okay… the things in the tray must have been very heavy.. so sorry, you could have asked for help…i would have been so glad to help you..you know that already or you tell the housekeeper to assist you…i’m sorry honey….get up…come here…are you alright..?
Kane helped the terrified Olivia to her feet. Wilson also apologised for whatever happened to her.
Kane’s housekeeper quickly came out and clean up the mess on the ground.
Olivia was shaking, she was sure she hard Wilson mentioned Kaka, her most dreaded enemy, the name she does not ever want to hear or come across, the reason why she was studying so hard and picking a project topics in school on criminology and human rights and all of the topics is on how to nail any future”Kakas” destroying homes and lives.
She was going to become a barrister and bring justice for the afflicted, and help those who’s”Kaka” got away without
punishment of any sort.
She was sure she hard Wilson mentioned Kaka. “How can Wilson call Kane kaka, what sort of expensive joke is that, no
..it can’t be possible” but she hard the name clearly or could it be from her head. Maybe it was ringing in her mind due to too much study and having so much hate for such name.
“I’m… I’m sorry…the tray fell off my hand…i…what..what did your friend called you Just now…I mean the name he called…
Kane looked at Wilson confused, Wilson returned the look not knowing what to say.
Kane mind began to beat so fast as he wondered if Wilson mentioned something that made Olivia to remember the past, “could it be that Olivia remembers the name “Kaka” from her past” Kane thought within himself, he looked at Olivia who has stepped away from his arms.
He needed to act fast.
” Wilson calls me Kane…it was Kane that he called me…or Wilson do you call me another name aside Kane…
Kane looked up at Wilson while asking him and Wilson quickly reply
” No…not at all…your name is Kane and that’s what I called you…I did not call any other name…
Kane turned to Olivia looking at him like a criminal or maybe is his mind that made him feel Olivia was looking at him in a bad way.
His heart never stop beating but he did everything he can to appear calm, Kane moved closer to Olivia who took another steps back ward, away from him
” Honey… what’s the problem..is.. everything alright… Wilson calls me Kane right from time… you hard him say that himself. What is going on…what did you hear him call me aside Kane… Honey..are you okay… please…what is it?
Olivia breathed deeply, she looked at Wilson who looked away confused, Olivia looked back at Kane who was already shaking from whatever Olivia was thinking, he had a pleading and worried crossed face. He kept breathing hard
Olivia shut her eyes and opened them again, she looked straight at nothing. Maybe she was over reacting, the name must have come from her inner mind, maybe she needs to loosen up from her deep studies on the devil called Kaka before the goes crazy.
Olivia felt stupid for over reacting.
Kane made another attempt to come closer to her, she didn’t move back this time, he can see that she was struggling with something and refused to say whatever it was.
As he moved closer again he gently held her in his arm, he kissed her forehead and her cheek. Olivia relaxed back into his arm.
Wilson stood without a word, not knowing what to do.
Kane gave him a sign to leave but Wilson needed money that Kane has refused to give
If he leaves now he may not get the money again because Kane will not want him to come around especially now that Olivia is suspecting something.
Which May be a link to the unfortunate happening of the past, a link to the arm men who unleashed terror on her and her entire family.
Kane will blame him for whatever happens to Olivia and will warn him to stay far away from him
He will never be able to get the money he needs to start all over.
As Kane gave Wilson sign to walk away while Olivia was in his arm, Wilson pretend not to understand and stood there without moving.
Kane kept up with facial sign language, Wilson stylishly used his hand to remind him about the money, Kane made another sign of “I will call you” with his left hand while holding Olivia with the right hand.
Wilson nodded before walking away.
Olivia noticed that Wilson was walking and quickly pulled away from Kane and asked Wilson to wait, he did.
” I’m so sorry Wilson, please wait let me prepare another thing for you…you can’t leave without eating something… don’t go like this…this is my first time of meeting you and I really do want to make it a good memory for you…I don’t know what happened to me earlier but I leave that aside for now… please stay while I rush up with something…
Olivia turned to Kane and said
“Kane, please tell your friend not to go… tell him to spend more time with us so that I can prepare some thing else. I’m Just meeting him for the first time, you told me earlier that he works in another state and that’s why I haven’t met him before, now that he is here to visit please allow me to prepare little something for him… Kane, please tell him to stay…
Wilson smiled and looked at Kane who gave him a sign not to stay but to leave immediately. Wilson turned to Olivia who was still pleading for him to stay with a cute smile on her face which he can’t resist and decided to please her instead.
Olivia went back to the kitchen to start-up another food preparation.
Kane took Wilson to another far corner outside the house.
” Guy, you really need to leave my house, you can’t stay here…look at what you almost caused…she told me she can’t remember anything from her past and your presence here is not a good thing at all, don’t you ever in your life call me Kaka..I mean ever…it must be the name that gave her that shock…I don’t know what happened to her but all I know is that you really needs to leave right now…I will tell her that you couldn’t stay, you got a business call and decided to leave…I don’t want anything that will link her to my past… my next plan is finally settling down with her after a long wait…I love her…she is the mother of my child… well, I know she doesn’t even know I’m Emerald’s real father but I really do not want her to know… because I fear loosing her…I have established so much in her, all I want is for her to forget everything about the past and focus on what I appear to be… angel in human form, that’s how she sees me and that’s how I want to be remembered… she is my wife to be and that is what I’m focusing on right now… Olivia has never given me a cold look before…she has not act that way towards me… you saw that thing that happened earlier…it sent a cold Chill down my warm body, I almost had a heart attack…you will not understand how her earlier reaction affected me and you cursed it all…I don’t want such to happen again…so please leave…
“You are talking too much, you don’t need to give me all this long talk for me to understand, I already did… but you still haven’t given me the money which was the main reason I’m here in the first place…Kane don’t you understand…I need the money…I can’t be like this… no job and no money… you have this money..i know you do…why not give me something to start a legal business…do you want me to go back to crime… involving myself with illegal things…I don’t want to go on that lane again…prison is not a place to be..i told you that already…I want to make something good out of my life and have a family some day like you are planning with Olivia… please…all I ask is money to start a good business or connect me to a better job that will yield good income for me and you will never see me again…the first money you gave me I used it to secure a place to lay my head and the next thing is how to sustain myself, pay bills and save some for the future… help me out…. please…
“Wilson… stop begging me, stop begging like a child, go and hustle and make money… you are a man act like one… I’m not a money making machine…I don’t owe you anything… I told you I don’t have money for you now…the first money I gave you is enough to start a trade… you renting an apartment with it is none of my business…guy… just go into the Street and hustle, make your own money and enjoy to the fullest…I told you earlier that I’m not given you anything again…be a man… the prison you went to did not cripple you, you came out with your two hands and legs so work your way to a better future… I’m not your father neither I’m I responsible for you…I have helped you already so leave..
Wilson and Kane kept arguing, Wilson threatened not to leave until he gets some money from Kane, Kane later told him to go he will transfer something to his account.
And with that Wilson left.
Days later Wilson did not get any alert from Kane
He tried calling him but Kane did not take any of his calls.
Olivia went to the mall with Kane and Emerald, Kane later took them to the amusement park, he was so caring and even bought tickets for those who couldn’t afford the Merry go round.
Olivia was happy to watch him help many people, putting smile and their faces. Kane was indeed her kind of man, a man who has other people’s interest at heart, helping those who needs help. A man with a large heart.
She wasn’t mistaken when she calls him angel in human form.
Kane was doing every thing possible to please Olivia.
He totally forgot about Wilson, he even ask his gate man not to open the gate if Wilson ever comes looking for him again.
Wilson has sent messages, called Kane but no response came
He decide within him that he was going to go back to his place again and if Kane still insist on not helping him then he will be left with no choice than to go through his wife to be, Olivia.
Kane was daring him to do his worst by ignoring him, when he start with his worst he will not like the outcome.
Because the heat will be too hot for him to bear.
” Kaka should not dare me because he has money and feels he can get away with anything…Kaka should not try to provoke me…I can chose to crucify him, when the heat starts he may not stand it…what is really the big deal if he helps me to start my life again…is that too much to ask… after all the hell that I went through in prison..he has never suffer anything and that was why he is asking me to enter street and hustle as if he knows what hustling life taste like…Kane has the money and connection…why can’t he give me tangible cash or set me up…he is daring me… Kane is really daring me… money makes him feel like he got wings to fly out of every trouble but the trouble I will give him he may never get away from it… let me still give him one more week after then I will know the next steps to take…
Wilson drank deeply from the bottle before settling it down.
He was going to wait for another week to see if Kane will send anything for him but if he doesn’t he will do whatever comes to his mind and that will be targeting on his wife to be, Olivia.
