‘Cindy, have you gone crazy?’ I asked shocked.
‘No, we can just make another baby, right?’ She asked with those eyes you can’t say no to.
‘Thank you for forgiving me,’ Karen said.
‘I think I need fresh air,’ I said and left.
She trusts everyone that’s why she is prone to hurt. I went outside to think. I don’t know if I forgive I will be able to forget.
I know it will be hard for him to forgive but I will keep asking for forgiveness until he finally forgives me. He left the table really angry but Cindy followed him after a while. Myve has been silent since Cindy started talking. Though she doesn’t talk much I hope she isn’t thinking of throwing me out. I don’t have anywhere to go.
‘I won’t chase you out,’ she said as if she had been reading my mind.
I nodded slowly.
‘Its nothing, I just thought that would be your thinking,’ she said smiling.
I lifted my eyes to see Cindy seated beside me.
‘Just forgive her, it was mum’s idea not hers?’ She pleaded.
‘I will try,’
‘Thank you,’ she said smiling.
‘Let’s go to bed and give them time,’ Myve suggested.
It was a good idea, so I stood and went to bed. I tried to sleep but couldn’t. I want peace with my sister. She has helped me and showed me love again. I wish I can make up for everything I did to her. She said if I succeed I would have made up to her. I’m working hard to achieve that. After some time of being awake I fell asleep.

This woman was testing my patience. After all the money I gave her she still took her daughter away. I just have to deal with her.
????I need her in the next twenty minutes. Alive.
With that I hanged up.
She doesn’t know who she is dealing with.
‘Where is your useless daughter?’ I asked with a straight face.
If she gives me an answer, I won’t hurt her.
‘I don’t know,’ she said.
I signalled my boys to freeze her legs. They placed her legs in cold ice.
‘Once you are ready to talk, inform us,’ I said and left.
That is just the beginning she better talks.
They placed my legs in cold ice and left. I started feeling cold. I remembered my daughter, she used to call and complain of how she was treated but I was full of greed to see. What if she’s dead? What if she is still alive? Where could she have gone? I have never been a good mother. I used her to satisfy myself. I separated her from her sister, the only family she was left with.
I lifted my eyes up, ‘if I happen to die in here. I just have one request. I wish she forgives me.’
Everything came back to my mind. The people I have hurt, those I have killed to get rich.
Karen she took me as her mother and did everything I wanted. But what did I do, hurt her and make her life miserable. The only reason why Andrew still wants her, is because she is carrying a son and he thinks he will be a good heir. Andrew can’t father a child and he needs a heir. He offered a large some of money to kill Karen after she delivers and raise the child as his.
