I was heading to the garden when Myve pulled me back abruptly. She looked disturbed.
‘What’s his name again?’ She asked.
‘Who?’ I asked back surprised.
‘Martin, why ask?’
‘I saw him, he looks somehow like him,’
‘I don’t remember telling my PA to invite him,’ I said.
‘Am damn serious. He is with him right now,’ she said and I felt like cold water being poured on my body. I looked behind me slowly and I saw him staring at me.
‘What should I do now?’ I asked confused.
‘Tell him to leave,’
‘I don’t want to create a scene her. Roy got stubbornness from him,’
‘Then make sure you don’t cross paths. I will get the children out of there,’ she said and I nodded.
I started walking towards the other corridor but Myve shouted behind me.
‘He is following you.’
I ran to the elevator and went upstairs.
I guessed right, that was Karen.
Can he be my child?
I need answers and I will only get from her. I followed her but I didn’t know where she went to.
I went back to the garden but the kids were gone. I sat down and buried my head in my knees frustrated.
I stood up again and started looking for that Myve. She spoilt everything when she talked to her. Its not time to blame, I just need to beg her to show me where Karen is. I went back inside and they were already through with the speeches.
I guess my day wasn’t made to be good. I walked to my car and drove to the hotel. My problems have just increased, I don’t know where they stay.
How on earth am I going to look for them.
I took my laptop to search something about Roy. He is a celebrity, maybe I can get some useful information about him.

‘ Roy Stevens biography’
I typed in my laptop.
‘Born September 8th 2014 in Geneva city and later moved to Buffalo. Started modelling at six months and featured in a movie when he was one. Rumours have it that he has a single mom but no one knows her yet.’
That was the only thing I needed for now. I closed my laptop and went to bed.
I woke up the next day and embarked on my search journey. I don’t even know where to start, but I need to see them. I went through town and by noon I was damn tired. I went inside the mall to get some snacks.
I just wanted time alone with Roy so I took the keys. He said he wanted to pick something from the mall before we go to the park.
‘Mum, just go with me,’ he said pleadingly.
I didn’t feel like going in but with his pleading I couldn’t say no. He was in front as I walked behind him. I was keeping an eye on him. Someone brushed on my side and the keys on my hand fell.
I bent down to pick it but when I raised my head Roy was down and someone bent in front of him. I walked to where he was and picked him up. He didn’t seem bothered and I was shocked because the Roy I know must fight back. I faced the man only to get the greatest shock of my life.
Martin, he was standing staring at me. I had Roy in my arms and I wanted to walk past him but he blocked my way.
‘Darling, go to the car and wait for me. I will just sort out why he bumped into you,’ I said with a faked smile.
‘He always bumps into me,’ he said with his puppy face.
‘Am so sorry,’ I said and placed him down.
I stared at him until he entered the car and I looked back at Martin.
