~ Damon ~
She has a daughter?
She glanced at me then back at the little girl.
“honey, why did you barge in like that ” she asked.
“didn’t you know mommy was in an important meeting ” she asked and the girl glanced at me.
She studied my face for quite a while that I started to look around if anyone noticed how she was looking at me.
“I just missed you mom ” she blurted out.
“Miss Wendy, you do know this is a board room for business, not for chit-chats ” I blurted out and she rolled her eyes at me.
“can I excuse myself, Mr Prize ” she asked and John nodded.
“common honey, let’s go out” she took the little girls hand and walked out.
I can’t believe she has a daughter .
That means she remarried.
“so what’s your decision, Mr Saltzman ” John asked and I glared at him.
“till next week ” I blurted out.
“that’s too long, I didn’t come to NY to stay you know ” he seethed.
“then let’s end the contract since you don’t want it “I said and he sighed.
“till next week then ” he said between gritted teeth and walked out.
This is the only way I can keep Katharine in NY.
I’m gonna delay this contract like forever until I win Katharine back.
I don’t care if she remarried cause she’s mine.
I won’t hesitate to kill anyone who comes between us.
Katharine is my life and no one would take her from me.
I brought out my phone and stared at Katharine’s photo that was on my phone..
She’s a beauty and she’s full of charisma.
She’s a a beauty but so unforgiving.
She finds it hard to let go of the past.
I’ll have to make it up to her.
I got up and went out.
I met Katharine, Olivia, John and that little girl outside the boardroom.
Olivia saw me and she tried suppressing her smile but failed miserably cause she grinned widely.
Olivia tapped the little and turned her to face me.
She pointed at me but Katharine quickly took the little girl from her hold.
Katherine glanced at me then back at Olivia.
She held her daughter’s hand and stormed out of the building.
I really need to talk to Olivia.
John and Olivia followed Katharine out too.
I went to my office and plumped down on my couch.
~ Katharine ~
We stood outside the boardroom, talking.
Olivia turned Allie away from me and I heard her say.
“you see that man there ” I looked at her and noticed what she was trying to do.
I yanked Allie from her and held her to myself.
I can’t believe she wanted to tell Allie that Damon is her father.
I took Allie’s hand and stormed out of the building and they followed.
We boarded the car and drove off.
Allie ran to the balcony and Olivia and I went to my room.
“I can’t believe you ” I yelled and she sighed.
“look Kathy, I’ve never opposed your decisions before and I’m not saying I’m gonna do that but Damon deserves to know he has a daughter ” she blurted out and I rolled my eyes.
“that decision is mine to make not yours ” I stated.
“I know but you’re too busy sulking over the past that you can’t see reality ” she yelled.
OK this is the first time she has yelled at me.
“Allie has the right to know her father, regardless of what happened in the past ” she blurted out.
“I’ve always supported your every decision and I’m not saying go back to Damon but please give him a chance to know his daughter at least ” she yelled and I was already getting pissed.
I turned my back on her as she continued saying non sense.
She came to my front and took my hand in hers.
“Kathy I know you’re hurt and I understand you, trust me. But think about Allie too, she needs a father ” she said softly and wiped the tears that were already streaming down my cheeks.
She pulled me into a hug and gently patted my back.
“let go of the past, Kathy ” she whispered.
She disengaged from the hug and wiped my tears.
“just remember that any decisions you make, will either build up Allie’s future or ruin her future ” she said.
She turned to leave but stopped when we saw Allie at the door.
She walked to me and hugged my thighs.
“mommy, is daddy a bad person ” she asked and I glanced at Olivia.
I smiled and caressed her hair.
“no honey, he isn’t ” I said and she smiled.
“so you’ll take me to go see him ” she asked and I looked up at Olivia.
She nodded at me, telling me to say yes.
“yes sweetie ” I said and she jumped up.
“Yaay mom, you’re best ” she said and turned to leave.
Already at the door, she came back and told me to squat and I did.
“thanks mom ” she pecked my cheek and ran out.
“you see how happy she is ” Olivia asked and I nodded.
“she was very happy ” I said.
“so will you take her to go see Damon ” Olivia asked and I put on a contemplating face.
“common ” she urged.
“yes. I won’t come between them but that doesn’t mean I’ll go back to him” I blurted out and she chuckled.
“Kathy is now so matured ” she teased and I laughed.
“well, I like that you’re strong now. You aren’t even scared of the rain again ” she said and we busted out laughing.
I remembered how Olivia made me stop my fear for rain.
She left and I freshened up.
I tidied up Allie too and we had dinner.
We all sat in the sitting room, watching a movie when John’s phone rang.
He excused himself and left the siting room.
~ John ~
My phone rang and I excused myself when I saw it was Damon.
I picked it up and he told me to come meet him at his house.
I went out, boarded my car and drove off to his place.
~ Damon ~
I already made a decision and I just hope John agrees.
That’s if he truly wants my company’s partnership.
I’ll tell him that, for us to agree to partner with them, I’ll take Katharine as my PA for a month.
Don’t blame me, I just wanna spend time with Katharine.
The doorbell rang and I smiled.
I opened the door and let him in.
“sit ” I offered…. More like ordered.
“I’ve decided to partner with your company ” I blurted out and his eyes lit up.
“wow, that’s good ” he said.
“but on one condition ” I said and his expression dropped.
“your secretary will be my secretary for a month ” I blurted out and he stared at me in awe.
“OK Damon, I’ve known for the first day you saw Wendy that you lust for her and that was why you put on that show that she’s your wife ” he blurted out and I smirked.
“is it a deal or not ” I asked.
“to hell with this contract, I love Wendy and I’m not gonna let anyone take her from me ” he blurted out and I jerked him up by his collar.
“Katharine’s mine, mine alone “I growled and pushed him to the ground.
“she’s my wife and I’m gonna take her back. So, Mr Prize, know your limits ” I said between gritted teeth.
“Katharine’s my wife and I won’t tolerate any one going close to her ” I said sternly.
He gave me a blunt look then left he house.
I have to get Katharine back, anyhow.
~ John ~
I drove back home, pissed off with Damon.
I can’t believe he wants to exchange Wendy with business.
I love Wendy and I won’t exchange her for anything.
To hell with this contract.
Wendy has to tell me the truth today.
There’s one thing I noticed in Damon’s eyes today, truth.
He was saying the truth.
I arrived and alighted.
I went in to meet only Wendy, pacing back and forth.
“you’re here, I was waiting for you ” she said and I nodded.
“Wendy ” I called and she looked up at me.
“are you Katharine ” I asked and she was taken aback.
She stared at me with guilt and her gaze slowly drifted off me.
She is indeed Katharine, Damon’s wife.
Her silence says it all.
“why didn’t you tell me ” I asked softly.
“I’m sorry ” she said, already in tears.
Seeing her cry weakens my soul.
“you don’t have to cry Wendy, you must have a good reason for all you did ” I said and gently cupped her face.
I wiped her tears with my thumb and kissed her forehead.
I hugged her and gently caressed her hair.
“ssh, it’s okay” I cooed.
Wendy or should I say Katharine, left to her room and I went to mine.
I can’t believe she’s Damon’s wife.
But she doesn’t want Damon anymore and that means I stand a chance of getting her.
I won’t let her go.
~ Katharine ~
I woke up the next day and tidied up.
Now Allie has to go to school on Monday.
I thought that idiot would finally accept our proposal but he postponed it to next week.
I can’t let Allie stay at home even if it’s for a short period of time.
I bathed her and dressed her up.
“are we leaving now ” she asked and I arched an eyebrow.
“you said you’d take me to go see dad ” she blurted out and I sighed.
“look honey, mommy’s busy so another time ” I said and her facial expression dropped.
“common honey, don’t put on a sad face, you know it breaks mommy’s heart to see you like this ” I said and she forced a smile.
“try understanding mommy okay ” I said and she smiled widely.
I kissed her forehead and told her to go have breakfast.
I’ve changed my mind, I won’t take Allie to go see Damon.
What if he takes her away from me?
What if he demands for her custody?
No no no, I can’t let that happen.
It’s better to keep it a secret from him.
I know what he’s capable of and I don’t wanna do anything that I’ll regret later on.
I went downstairs and joined them for breakfast.
Olivia and John kept glancing at me and I know why.
John’s still surprised that I’m actually Katharine and that Damon was right.
And Olivia, she keeps glancing at me because Allie must have told her that I wasn’t taking her to see her dad.
Olivia took me aside after breakfast and I sighed, knowing well what she wants to say.
“what is wrong with you Kathy ” she yelled and I rolled my eyes.
“Olivia I can’t, what if he takes her away from me ” I asked and she sighed and hit her forehead.
“how dumb are you? He won’t do that cause he wouldn’t want to hurt you ” she blurted out and I turned away.
“you don’t know him and it’s my decision to make so no, I’m not telling Allie about him but maybe one day, I will” I said and left her.
~ Olivia ~
I need to see Damon.
I brought out my phone and called him.
He was surprised, I mean shocked that I called him.
I told him to come meet me at a restaurant and he obliged.
I left the house after telling Kathe I had some important things to do.
I arrived and sighed sighted Damon at the far end of the restaurant and I chuckled.
He didn’t waste any sec.
I went over to him and sat opposite him.
“who’s the father of that little girl? Is it John ” he asked and I sighed.
“I didn’t come here to answer your questions, Mr Saltzman. I came here to talk to you ” I remarked.
“do you love Kathy ” I asked.
“of course, I love her a lot” he blurted out.
“are you sure ”
“look Olivia, I know I’m not perfect and I’ve made lots of mistakes but I regret it all ” he said and he was sincere cause I could see it in his eyes.
“good! ” I commented.
“well, I just wanna tell you that you shouldn’t give up on Kathy cause she still loves you ” I said and his eyes lit up.
“really ” he asked and I nodded with a smile.
“she just finds it hard to let go of the past and she’s acting stubborn ” I said an she nodded.
“but she remarried ” he blurted out.
“did she ” I asked and he arched an eyebrow.
“if she didn’t remarry then how the fuck did she have a daughter ” he asked and I gave him a blunt look.
He studied my expression and his eyes widened.
“she’s my daughter ?” he asked and I shrugged.
“I don’t know, why don’t you find out yourself ” I said and left.
~ Damon ~
My head is aching from all these.
It’s possible she’s my daughter cause Katharine left 6 years ago and if I’m correct, that little girl would be 5.
And it’s also possible that she’s not my daughter cause 6 years is a very long time and anything could have happened.
I need answers.
I picked up my car keys and left he restaurant.
I boarded my car and drove to John’s suite.
The gate was opened to me by a man I presumed to be the gate man.
I drove in and alighted.
I rang the doorbell and Kathy opened it for me.
She froze when she saw me.
