“I’m here ” I heard the voice I’ve been dying to hear for years, Katharine’s voice.
My head snapped to the door and my world stopped spinning when I met with those amber eyes.
It was like time stopped and our heart beats was all I could hear.
I can’t believe after all these years, she’s right in front of me.
“Katharine ” I called when I finally found my tongue and John arched an eyebrow.
“Katharine it’s you “I said and went to her.
“I really can’t believe you came back ” I said and hugged her.
I buried my face in the crook of her neck and let out all the pains I’ve been holding. I cried.
She was still and didn’t hug me back.
I could hear her heart pounding loud in her chest.
We stayed in that position for a while until she pushed me away.
“I’m sorry but do I know you ” she asked and I raised an eyebrow.
“and I’m Wendy, Wendy Blake not Katharine” she corrected.
“what are you saying Katharine? It’s you “I said amidst tears.
“I’m sorry Mr Prize but is this Damon Saltzman that you wanna stroke a deal with? I think he’s insane ” she blurted out and the board members gasped.
“Damon, what are you saying? She’s Wendy Blake, my secretary “John said.
“no John, she’s Katharine and she’s my wife “I stated.
“that can’t be possible cause she’s a divorcee ” John blurted out.
“she’s Katharine and I know it “I said.
“Piper please tell them she’s my Katharine, tell them ” I begged but she looked away.
“OK I don’t know if you’re insane or not but I’m not Katharine, I’m Wendy Blake so let’s start work ” Katharine said and walked over to an empty seat.
“shall I start the presentation ” she asked.
“the meeting is over ” I yelled and the board members rushed out leaving Piper, John and Katharine in the room.
I turned to face Katharine and the anger in me melted.
She was shaken from the way I yelled.
“Katharine, I know you’re upset with me, I know I’ve made unforgivable mistakes but I’m sorry, I’m sorry please forgive me “I begged.
I didn’t know when my legs squatted and found myself on my knees, begging for forgiveness from Katharine.
“I’m sorry, I don’t know you “she made to leave but I pulled her back.
I held her tight and she struggled to free herself.
“Katharine, I know it’s you, you’re just upset with me but I’ve changed, I promised “I said.
“let me go “she struggled to get free from my grip but I was too strong for her.
“John ” she called for him to come to her rescue
I felt hurt when she called him. I’m the one to protect her cause she’s mine
“Damon, let her go “John yelled but I paid no attention to him.
“how can you say you don’t know me Huh ” I asked.
Before I could say another word, John punched me in the face.
I sprung forward to hit him but Katharine blocked my way.
She landed a slap on my cheek and I was taken aback.
“why don’t you understand? I’m Wendy Blake so stop causing a commotion here please “she yelled, took John’s hand and they left.
I was still recovering from the slap she gave me.
Was I wrong? Isn’t she Katharine? Of course she is.
No! I won’t let John take her away from me, I won’t let anyone take her from me.
I rushed out and saw their car leaving.
I boarded mine and followed them.
They entered a suite and before I could drive in, the gate automatically locked.
I got out of my car and walked to the gate.
“open the gate ” I yelled.
“open the damn hate ” I yelled, hitting the gate.
“Katharine, please let me in “I yelled but got no response.

“how dare Damon “Mr Prize muttered under his breath.
I stormed into my room to meet Allie and Olivia.
I wiped my tears slowly they wouldn’t notice.
“mommy ” Allie called and ran to me.
I picked her up and kissed all over her face.
“we were just watching movies cause we were bored “she blurted out and I smiled.
I dropped her and she back to the bed.
I avoided Olivia’s gaze and went knot the bathroom.
The door to the bathroom opened and Olivia came in.
“Katharine, why are you crying “she asked and I hugged her.
I let out all the tears I’ve been suppressing.
“calm down and talk to me “she shakes dad I sniffed then wiped my tears.
“Olivia, I saw him. He was pleading me to forgive him and it really hurts to see him like that ” I blurted out.
“then go back to him” she said and I yanked her hands off me.
“no! I don’t wanna go back to him. Just because he pleaded for me to forgive him doesn’t mean I’ll throw myself at him like I did before. I don’t wanna make any mistakes again ” I stated and she sighed.
“just freshened up and calm down ” she said and I nodded.
She left and I took off my clothes to bathe.

I stood outside the suite, hitting the gate and screaming for Katharine to come to me.
It was getting dark and the weather seems like it was gonna rain.
I was right cause it started raining and I got drenched.
I brought out my phone and called John.
~ John ~
How dare Damon say Wendy is his wife? I know Wendy was married before but she said she divorced her husband.
And she’s not even Katharine.
We were all seated in the sitting room except Allie who was already asleep.
My phone rang and I brought it out.
It was Damon so I picked up.
“if you don’t open this gate know the next 30 secs, you’ll regret being born to this earth” I heard Damon’s husky voice over the phone and I shivered.
The line went dead and my heart skipped.
Damon doesn’t give threats.
He does what he says and I know what he’s capable of.
“what is it ” Wendy asked.
She must have noticed my facial expression.
Fear was clearly visible on my face.
“it was Damon, he said if I don’t open the gate in the next 30 sec, I’ll regret being on earth ” I blurted out.
“I’ll got talk to him ” I said and got up to leave.
“no wait, I’ll go ” Wendy said and I arched an eyebrow.
“why ” I asked.
Was Damon right? That Wendy is Katharine?
“he’s under the impression that I’m his wife so I have to clear up everything ” she said and I nodded.
“be careful ” I said and she left.
~ Katharine ~
I can’t believe Damon is still in the rain.
What if he gets sick? I need to make him leave.
I walked out and met him on the phone.
He saw me and ended the call.
I felt like hugging him, kissing him but I can’t.
I have to control myself.
“what do you want ” I asked, my voice was hoarse.
“you ” He blurted out.
“I want you back Katharine, please come back to me “he begged and I rolled my eyes.
“why can’t you get it that I’m not Katharine? I’m Wendy ” I blurted out.
“really ” he asked, coming closer to me.
The more step he took forward, the more I stepped backward.
I stopped when my band hit the wall.
Our faces were inches apart and his breath was all over my face.
He captured my lips in his and I shivered at his cold lips.
I reciprocated and wrapped my hands around his neck.
The kiss intensified and he snaked an arm round my waist and pulled me closer to him.
I shivered when my warm body came in contact with his cold body.
I wanted to pull away, to stop all these but my body was saying another thing.
I pulled away to catch my breath and he trailed kisses down my breast.
“Damon ” I moaned out.
My phone rang in my pocket and I got back to my senses.
“Damon stop it “I said but he continued.
“Damon stop it ” I half yelled and he stopped.
I liked at the caller ID and it was John.
I looked away from him cause I don’t wanna get lost in those eyes of his.
He pulled me roughly to him and I gasped.
He gripped my arms tight that it started to hurt.
“you say you’re not Katharine bit you’re affected by my touch ” he said between gritted teeth.
“let go of my arm, you’re hurting me “I blurted out.
“hurt? That’s exactly what I want you to feel. I want you to feel the pains I felt when you left me. The pains my heart carried. The ones I kept buried deep down inside me ” he said, still holding my arms.
He’s blaming me for leaving him? Hell!
I yanked my arm form his grips and stared boldly into his eyes.
“don’t dare turn the tables around, Mr Saltzman ” I said boldly.
“you were the one who always made me feel like I’m nothing. You only wanted me for selfish reasons. You married me just for a contract. You shattered my dreams and you’re telling me about pains? I’m the victim here Damon, so don’t you dare turn the table around ” I warned amidst tears.
“I’m sorry Katharine, I regret everything. Please forgive me ”
“never ” I stated.
“oh really “he asked.
“remember you’re still my wife so I have all rights on you ” he blurted out and I laughed.
“do you have evidence “I asked and he arched an eyebrow.
“you married Katharine Eve Pearls not Wendy Blake. To the world, I’m Wendy Blake and there’s no marriage records in that name ” I said and laughed to myself.
“Katharine, why are you doing this ” he asked softly.
“cause I want you out of my life. You’re my past so remain in the past “I blurted out bluntly.
“I love you, Katharine ” he blurted out and I scoffed.
“too bad I don’t “I stated.
“now Damon, go back home and don’t you dare involve John in this ” I said.
“it’s a warning not a plea “I remarked and walked into the suite.
I entered the sitting room to meet John and Olivia still waiting for me.
“everything’s fine ” I said before they could say anything and walked into my room.
I laid beside Allie and Damon’s words replayed in my head.
“I love you, Katharine “… He loved me?
No no no, I don’t have anything to do with him.
I already survived 6 years without him and I can still move on.
Now because of the contract we have, we have to stay in NY for a while so Olivia would enroll Allie in a school tomorrow while John and I would go to Damon’s company for the contract.
I got under the duvet and slept off.
I woke up the next day, tidied up Allie and myself then ate breakfast.
John already employed a cooker.
I dressed Allie up for Olivia to take her to school for enrollment and I dressed up for work.
I wore a black pencil skirt and a white button up shirt.
I packed my hair in ponytail and did a light make up.
John and I left for Damon’s company while Olivia took Allie to enroll her in school.
We arrived at his company and went to the board room.
Damon wouldn’t take his gaze off me as Piper did their presentation.
I tried my best in avoiding his gaze.
I pretended to be concentrating in the presentation but I was dying to look at his beautiful face.
It was now time for me to do ours and John winked at me.
I stood up and boldly walked to the front.
I did my presentation and they all clapped.
John gave me a thumbs up and Damon huffed at it.
As if I care?
I went back to my seat beside John and we waited for Damon’s decision.
“I need some more time to think about this” he blurted out and I rolled my eyes.
I know he’s purposely delaying the contract.
The door to the board meeting opened and Allie ran in.
“mommy ” she called and ran to me.
I glanced at Damon and he held shocked expression.
