STORY, LOVE HAPPENS CHAPTER 41

Chapter 41

    He felt the first pour, then the second, then another before he jerked up to a start. It was their daily routine for the past week since he had been kidnapped too. Pouring bowls of water on him to wake him up and no matter how many times he complained, Georgina would do as she wanted. "Wake up." The guard's deep voice rang bell in his ears. "Will you stop screaming? What's the matter now?" Fred asked the huge looking man that woke him up. "She is here to see you." He replied. Fred wondered if he was forced to do the job or he himself signed up for it because no matter how he tried, he still couldn't come up with a reason why a man in his senses would do this kind of Job. "Who is 'she'?" Fred asked, already getting irritated. "Georgina Huckings." Oh now she has decided to see him, Fred thought. Since that evening when one of the guards had hit his head with iron and he had fallen unconscious, that would be about a week now, Georgina hadn't visited him though he knew quite well that these were her men. It had been his mother he saw, and just for that time because since then, he hadn't seen her again. Maybe it was a plan to leave him unguarded. Maybe Georgina already knew he was coming and they were already prepared for him. For the second time he lost to her, he lost. He was fooled again. Would Katie have been proud of him if she had been here? He hadn't been able to do anything right since things ended between them, he was slowly losing his mind. He thought at first that he was caught up in the love he had for his mother but he realized he had been wrong, his love for his mother shouldn't have made him weak, it should have strengthened him. It was Katie, it was her all long. She taught him how to feel already and now that she despised him, he just couldn't do anything right, he wasn't smart nor vigilant anymore, he wasn't strong and a woman was defeating him, what had he done to himself?
    "Oh Fredrick, look at you, still as handsome as ever. If that silly daughter of mine hadn't run away, I would have let her marry you." Georgina walked into the room he was being kept with the elegance he was used to by now. He had been here for long now, were they searching for him? His office workers would have noticed him gone, would Katie have heard? Would she be worried about him? "Marry her own cousin? Well, didn't expect anything less immoral from you." Fred told her scornfully. "Oh you found out your mother is my sister, interesting. Guess yours and that foolish girl's research paid off after all." She said just as she beckoned to one of the guards to get her a chair. "Of course, our lives don't depend on the destruction of others' unlike some people, right?" He snapped. She just smiled. "You have a running mouth don't you? The way you did at the club meeting last week, the same thing that led you here. Did you really think I wouldn't know you were coming here? Well, I even appeared at the meeting so it wouldn't look like I had a hand in your disappearance. And guess what, i'm even helping in your search, how ironic." She laughed and sat down on the chair brought for her. Fred shook his head, not shaking by her attitude. He had had enough of her already. "Are you feeling bored? Do you need company? Maybe from your beloved Katie." She said. "You won't dare lay a finger on her." He said girthing his teeth together. "Else what?" She laughed again. "Well, forget about that, I already have one for you, someone you miss a lot, the person you came here to meet." Just as she said that, his mother ran through the entrance to meet him. "I don't expect any thanks, catch ya lerra." He heard Georgina mumble before leaving. He stood up to hug his mother tightly, it was the third time he was seeing her. And for the first time in a long while, he wept.
    "Mom, is it really you. Am I dreaming? Mom!!" He hugged her again. She was small in his arms, she was extremely thin and was obviously malnourished. He cried harder, his mother had been in pain for years while he had been living a luxurious life, hating on her and every woman. He had treated every woman unjustly and unfairly, he had said bad things about his mother, now he felt worse than ever. "You recognised me even after.....these, my old face and disfigured shape." His mother said after they finally left each other to sit. "You really saying that mom? How can a son ever forget his mother?" He held her bony hands gently as she smiled. He wiped his tears once again and hugged his mom. "I'm so sorry mom, I am really sorry. I should have come earlier mom, I should have known you needed me all these years, but I was hating on you, been hating on you." He said. "Baby calm down. I know none of this was your fault, none, so calm down and tell me what happened while I was gone, how's Cameron." His mother's soft voice chilled his brain and mind. "Mom. I hated you for all those years you left us. Georgina came to live with us and we couldn't recognise it wasn't you. She made our lives hell making us think all the time that it was you. She maltreated me, even made dad handicapped forever. I thought it was you all long and I said all sorts of bad things about you. If I had known it wasn't you all long, I would have known you were in trouble and would have come to save you. I was just so stupid and cold hearted to realize my mother couldn't do such horrible things that Georgina did to us. I'm sooo sorry mom, I'm extremely sorry." He cried out to her, but she just smiled, rubbing his hair genty as he laid low on her laps. "I know everything baby, I know it all. And I am also sorry for not being there for you too. Don't blame yourself for anything, you were too young then to understand." She said.
   "Why? I want to know why Georgina is doing all of this? Why did she do this to you and why does she want to ruin me and Katie?" Fred asked, he wanna know everything and be clear on all this trash. "Katie? Oohhh, she must be Katherine, Regina's daughter?" His mother said, he became confused. "Who is Regina?" He asked but as usual, she just smiled again. "I will tell you everything."
    "There was a couple. The Diamonds, they were my parents. They were childless for a long while, they thought they weren't going to give birth anymore. So they decided to adopt a child from the orphanage. That's Regina, Katherine's mother. They said she was adorable, they gave her everything they had, they thought she was the only child they would have, so they willed all their properties to her, they were extremely rich, too rich that if they had spent millions everyday till they died, they wouldn't have spent up to half the money they had. Fortunately for them their prayers were answered, the wife became pregnant and gave birth to twins, two girls, that's me and Veronica. As their first children, they pampered us, so much that we had everything we had, we were always held high up by everybody. None of us let all that get into our heads except Veronica. She took another turn among us. We were three loving sisters who were close beyond doubt, we never made Regina feel she was adopted though we all knew already. But Veronica changed, she suddenly changed. Maybe because she always got the best attention from guys and everyone as a whole, being the most beautiful of us all with a dream of being a model and actress, but she became aggressive, rude, arrogant and uncontrollable. The worst part was she became wayward. No one could talk sense into her, she felt she was above everybody. She turned against us, her sisters and took control of everything in the household, she felt it was just hers and my property and since I never bothered about material things but family, she took everything as hers and started living lavishly and luxuriously. Mother and father saw all of this and tried their best to stop her behaviour and childishness, they kept pestering her and making her know they were still alive and it was still thier property, guess that was what prompted her of killing them." Fred's gasp made her pause for a while. "She planned to kill her own parents? Well looking at her now, I won't say she isn't capable of doing that." Fred said and urged her to continue. She smiled once again.
    "I guess that was what my parents saw that made them change their mind about the will. Soon enough, they both died. It was so crazy because they died at a very young age and till now, no one has found out the cause of their death. Weeks later when we were still mourning their death, their lawyer came to meet us to announce their will. I could see the smile on my twin sister's face, she had been expecting it, she really had. It was a great shock when the lawyer read the will. 70% of the property was given to Regina and the remaining 30%, was given to me. None was given to Veronica. She was boiling, she got extremely angry that day that she sent the lawyer out of the house, it was later we heard that the lawyer was involved in a fatal accident that took his life. I assumed Veronica had a hand in that too. Regina was a gentle and cool lady, she wanted no problem from anyone and she thought Veronica had been treated unfairly, she decided to give Veronica 30% of her own share too, she told me. We were about telling her one day when Regina heard that her fiance had been sent to jail by Veronica for a crime he didn't commit, she had accused him of trying to take advantage of her. Regina got really angry that she swore on her life never to give Veronica anything and the last time all of us saw, she told Veronica clearly. She placed a challenge before her to spoil all Veronica's plans, she stood up against Veronica and her stupid attitude, and for the first time, I was extremely pleased. That day, we all separated, went to different towns and vowed not to see one another again, we vowed to live separately and never disturb anyone of us again. We had no particular relatives. Remember when you were a child, you used to wonder why all the relatives that came to visit us were from your father's side, not mine, this is the reason." His mother explained. Fred sighed, oh shii, things were becoming clearer now.
   "Well I didn't hear anything from any of them until that time I travelled for work and Veronica kidnapped me, she told me she had killed Regina and her husband and left their child Katherine an orphan and if I didn't want the same fate to befall my son, I should do as she wanted. I was so scared baby, I was, I couldn't allow anything happen to Cameron or you, so I obliged. That was when I learnt about everything, that she was still not pleased about the property which she thought was stolen from her, she vowed that she would get everything back, everything. I learnt about her plans, everything." She concluded and wiped her tears quietly so he would not see but he did and he stood to hug her and give her support. Then a question struck him. "Since you learnt about all her plans, what do you think is her next plan?" He asked naively. The terror in his mother's eyes confirmed all his fears. "Kill us Fred, she will kill all of us and get all the property, she will kill us."
