I dressed in a casual and drove to her house. I must admit the house is pretty. The guards didn’t ask any questions, maybe she informed them I will be coming. I packed my car and got in but the place was silent. I took out time to admire the decorations. Everything there was glass and a ???? written ‘Roy’. It was a beautiful sight to behold. I was still admiring and didn’t realize Roy was there.
‘Hey mister, hope you didn’t come to bump into me in our house,’ he said and it snapped me from my thoughts.
I wanted to hug him, tell him that am proud of him, I love him so much and never wanted to abandon him.
I couldn’t, I needed to wait until I’m well introduced to him.
‘I didn’t come to bump into you. I came we have dinner,’ I managed to say with a smile.
‘I now understand why mum has been busy in the kitchen,’ he said with a wink.
This boy is spoilt.
‘Let’s go, I guess you wouldn’t love eating while standing,’ be said and walked away.
I followed him to the dinning and it was half set.
‘Tell me more about yourself,’ I suggested.
‘I Love my mom so much. She is my role model. My mom can sacrifice everything just to make me smile,’ he said and I couldn’t help but smile.
‘What do you to do when you grow up?’ I asked.
‘My mom is saving money for me to start a modelling company when I turn seven. Then I will give my mom everything she wants. Even if it means the world,’ he said.

I’m so much Impressed with him. At five and his brain is analyzing big things, isn’t that incredible.
‘Do you desire to see your dad?’ I found myself asking.
‘Yeah, I wish I could see him. Mum said he went to look for more money and will come back for us,’ he said and I was shocked.
She didn’t tell him that I abandoned them.
‘What will you do if you see your dad, now or let’s say tonight?’
‘Get angry. Why did he leave, we would have made the money together. Mum did it alone, right?’ it sounded more of a question than a statement.
How will I tell him that I don’t know why I left and in my right senses I would never do that.
I was still thinking of what to say next when Karen walked into the dining with dishes. She hugged me and took Roy in her arms.
I heard everything they said from the projector in the kitchen. I knew Martin is almost spilling the truth and Roy won’t take lightly. I went there to save him embarrassment. I placed the food and took Roy and placed him on my laps. He doesn’t like food so we always fight.
‘Mum, put me down please. I promise I will eat all the food,’ he said pleadingly.
‘Okay, I’m the one serving you,’ I said more of a command.
