“Congratulations son,You are going to be a father”The great queen said jolting me back to reality
Ever since Alicia told us about her pregnancy
My mind has been on freeze mode,I just stood there watching them
It wasn’t until the great queen spoke up that I returned to reality
Brian pushed Alicia away from him starring at her
“This can’t be true”He said as he turned to stare at me
“It is,You saw the doctor report yourself”The great queen said
“And besides we did do it you know “Alicia said
“Shut up!”He yelled at Alicia
“Uh?…….Yes …….of course you are right”I replied quickly
“See,Even your wife agrees,All you have to do too is to accept it,Alicia will be giving us the heir that we need, Be happy about that after all that’s the reason why we had brought her to the house” The great queen said
“This calls for a celebration right?”The Great queen added
“I better go and tell the king about it, A party must be organised”She said again and left the room quickly
Long after she left,The three of us stood in the room being silent.
I stood starring at the floor trying to come to terms with what I just found out and Brian stood looking at me while Alicia starred at the both of us
“Stop looking as if You were sentenced to death,Am only pregnant,!”Alicia was the first to break the silence
“Shut up!”Brian said as he gave her a terrible look
“No I won’t,Now that am pregnant,i deserve some respect from you Brian, This might not be what you want but it happened,We both made it happen,So stop being a weakling and just accept the fact that am the one having your heir and not her”She said angrily and I starred at her
“You should also be happy,You also agreed for this right,It had finally happened and there is nothing any one can do about it”She added and walked out of the room
I stayed silent long after Alicia left,A lot of things were going through my head
” Talk to me Emma”He said softly beside me and I realised that Brian have been watching me,Trying to know how I feel
I have to be happy right,After all Alicia was right,This was the reason why we brought her to the palace
Forcing myself to smile,I turned to stare at him.
“Congrats Brian”I said softly
“You don’t mean it”He replied
“How do you know that? Alicia have finally gotten pregnant,It was what we all wanted right?” I said
“Stop trying to cover up your feelings, Tell me how you feel right now!’He said as he held my face
Still putting on that fake smile,I stared up at him
“Am glad Brian,At least one of us will become a parent”I said and he pulled me into his arms
“Am sorry Emma”He whispered softly and I closed my eyes and forced back the tears that threatned to pour
Moving out of his arms,I took his hand and stared at him
“Let’s go and break the news to your father,He has been waiting for a grand child for a long time now” I said walking out of the patio with him.
“where could she be?”I whispered to myself as I went around looking for Dora
Alicia would have done what I asked her to do and as Dora have gone missing,She would surely be crying some where by herself
Just the mere thought of her crying makes me go crazy.
Ever since she was little, She has been crying and even now that she is married she is not happy
How will she ? When destiny had to be so cruel as to push her back into the hands of the people that caused her so much pain
The tower was empty,The garden too showed no sign of her and the onstruction site where I thought she might be proved to be useless.
I was heading back to the palace when I heard two maids talking
“I wonder why she is there?” One of them said
“Maybe she is sulking after all Lady Alicia is pregnant” another said
“I wonder why she chose to stay in the court house,Couldn’t she sulk some where else”The first voice said again
Knowing where she might be,I quickly went to the court house and there she was occupying one of the empty seats
When I cooked up the plan with Alicia,I knew she would be hurt but I want her to hate Brian, If getting to hate him will work then her unhappiness was worth it all.
“Just give me five more minutes,I promise to let you know when I leave so you can come clean up the court room” She said thinking I was the maid
“Is this your new escape place” I said and she turned to stare at me
“How did you find me?”She asked
“It was quite simple,Where ever you seem to go,you always leave a trail Dora and that makes it easy for me to find you “I said
“I just wanted to be some where I know Brian wouldn’t be”she replied
“And what makes you think he wouldn’t come here to search for you?”I asked
“That’s because he will never have imagined that I will be in the court room,It must have taken you a while before you knew I was here. Right?”She asked
“Well it did took me awhile,Just a while”I replied and saw that her expression had changed once again
“I heard the news,How are you ?”,
“I would be lying if I told you that I was fine”She replied
“But I have to be fine,This was what we wanted from the beginning right! Am just glad that some one else can give Brian the heir he needs” She added softly
“Why do I think that you are lying?”I asked and she stared at me
“What makes you think that am lying?”she asked softly
“Because I can read your thoughts and right now I know that you are not fine with it at all”I said
“You caught me !”she said now having a sad smile on her face
Gently I took her hand and held it tight.
“Don’t try to be strong in front of me,It might work with Brian and the rest but it won’t do with me,When ever you are with me,you can cry,My shoulder will be here for you to lean on”I told her meaning every thing I said
She smiled and pulled her hand out of mine
“Thanks for offering me your shoulder William but I can handle this on my own,You said I can cry and lean on your shoulders,Let’s just wait for the time when some thing drastic will happen,Some thing I doubt ”
“You don’t have to worry about me William,i can take care of myself and this is one of the time that I can do that “She finished
Her rejection got me feeling sad and a bit angry
“Tell me! What did his majesty say about this whole thing?”I asked
“That he was sorry,He was sorry that it happened and was sorry for Alicia being pregnant”
“So! What did you say to that?”
“That I was okay,I took his hand and went to give the news to his father” She replied
“Isn’t that over doing it,I know that you chose this and that you have promise to acknowledge the out come no matter what but you shouldn’t just give in like that”I said
“What do you suggest that I do?”She asked
“Don’t you think it’s time you……..you leave him “I said taking a chance,Who knows she might find my idea a good one and if she decides to leave Brian today,I will know that my plan had succeeded and then my revenge on the stone will begin to take place
“I can’t possibly leave him just because of that,You shouldn’t be giving me that sort of advice” She said to me
“Can’t you see that you are hurt, You should call it quit before you get destroyed”I said wanting her to open her eyes.
“You are wrong William,Leaving Brian will certainly destroy me not the other way around”
“I think have heard enough William,Thanks for trying to cheer me up and also thanks for listening to me,I hope that some day I can return the favour”She said interrupting me
“I will hold you up to that”I said softly
“I will be waiting and also it’s best that you stop looking for me first,Your sister needs some one by her side right now”She said and left the court room.
I was still sitting there long after she was gone,Feeling rejected .
“It’s your side that I want to be”I whispered to myself softly,if only I can make that possible as soon as I can,I would
But I have to take things slow,In the end I will have her by my side,Just having that thought got me feeling secured.

I got back to my room,Feeling a bit sad.
“You should call it quit before you get destroyed” William words drifted back to me.
Am I really causing destruction for myself,I thought as I layed on the bed
Should I just call it quit and leave,I thought again and I knew that that was an impossible thought
No matter what! I love Brian and I won’t leave him just because some else is pregnant for him
What matter is the love between us and besides have promised to accept what ever out come that night led to
It led to her being pregnant and that was why she was here in the first place.
Just then the door opened and Alicia her self walked in
“What do you want?”I said as I sat up
“Just wanted to see how you are?”She said plastering a fake smile on her face
“Just get to the point Alicia cause I don’t believe that you are here to see how I am “I said
“How accurate”She said softly
“Well I just came to tell you that since am now having his majesty child,It’s best that you give him up”She added
“Give up what?”I asked
“Give his majesty up,You know that between. The two of us,I need him now more than ever “She said
“Am sure that the baby will come out as strong as his father and to be able to achieve that I need his father by my side”She said
“Where are you trying to get by saying all this ?”I asked
“It’s simple,I want you to leave him,Leave him for me,Am the pregnant one here,Am more useful to him than you will ever be”She said
“What is it with today,First your brother tells me to leave my husband and now you too?”I asked
“Seems like my brother also wants the best for me,If he asked you to leave Brian then he is only doing it for me”
“Well you and your brother will be very disappointed because I won’t be leaving my husband,You might be pregnant,you might be what the great king and queen need but you will never be what Brian need because am the one he loves,So wake up from your damn dream and quit being a nuisance”I said snapping my fingers
“Well said my child,Well said”My mom (Dora mom) walked into the room.
“Apart from daring to have his child,You dare come in here to provoke my daughter,do you really want me to……….”
“No mom,please,She is pregnant!”I said holding her back
“A pregnancy which I doubt would last and you should thank your stars that you are pregnant,My daughter is the one holding back but I won’t stop myself from beating some sense into that head of yours”She yelled at Alicia
It was odd though,I was expecting Alicia to say some thing but she just stood there taking every thing in
“What are you still waiting for, Get lost!”My mom yelled at her and quickly she left the room
After seeing the way she left the room,I couldn’t stop myself from. Laughing
“How can you laugh in this kind of situation,Don’t you see what danger you are in with that girl here”she asked
“I know and that’s why you are here for me “I said as I went to hug her
For the past two years,Have learnt to think of her as my mother.
Though I know that some day the truth that am not their child will be out still I want to show her some love
If the real Dora had been alive she will be the one making them happy but she is not alive and it’s only fair that I make her parents happy just as they have made me happy.
“You foolish girl,We are talking about some thing serious and here you are being sentimental”She said smiling
“Just let me be today,Let’s not talk about Alicia,Brian or the pregnancy,Just hug me mom,Your hug is all I need”I said as I hugged her tight
I would have given any thing to be held by my dad,i wonder when he would wake up.
Long after my mom left ,I got a call and it was from the hospital
“What happen?”I asked
Each time I get a call from the hospital,Am always scared, Scared that they are calling to give me a bad news
“You need to come to the hospital “The nurse who is in charge of my father said
” But why? Is some thing wrong with my father ?”I asked
“I can’t tell you on the phone your highness,it will be best if you just come to the hospital”She said
“I will be there soon”I said as I switch off the phone.
“What did you just say?”I asked as I stared at both the guards who stood in front of me
“We have been ordered to keep you out of the palace,Your job is out there,Not in the palace”one of the guard replied
“His majesty asked you to do this right?”I asked
“That is some thing you should not concern your self with,Just go back to the site”He said again
Brian has pulled a fast one on me,I thought as I began to walk off
He is trying to keep me away from Dora ,Well then if he thinks that I will just let it end that way,Then he is in for a surprise.
Just then a car stopped in front of me and he came out of it,Having a smile on his face
“You wanted to get into the palace right?”He asked as he walked towards me
“I couldn’t,After all you have put those guard dogs there to prevent me from doing so” I replied
“Poor you!”He replied smirking
“Instead of wasting your time on me, You should be concentrating on my sister and the child she is expecting”I said and that destroyed the smile on his face
“I will deal with that later,You don’t have to meddle”He said
“I will meddle after all my sister is the pregnant one here and your wife is some one have learned to care for,I would hate to see them both suffer”I added the last part to taunt him
“I already told you to stay away from my wife”
“Am sorry your majesty but you aren’t doing a perfect job,So I will just have to stay close to her”I said and I was sure that he would have hit me if Dora hadn’t run out at that time
“Brian!”She called as she ran towards us
“What’s wrong?”Brian asked
“It’s my father,They just called me saying I should come to the hospital”
“What did they say happen?”He asked
“I don’t know yet,They won’t tell me,could it be that he ………”
“No don’t think that way,first let’s go to the hospital”Brian said as he pulled her back to the car and then they drove off
What could have possibly happen to Peter Chadwick,I thought as I stood starring after the car
He shouldn’t even think of dying,I still need him in my plan,I better go and check what’s happening,I thought as I head to my car.
As soon as we got to the hospital,We were ushered into the doctor office
“What happen doctor,What happen to my father”I asked as soon as I walked into the office
“I didn’t want to tell you over the phone am sorry that I made you come all the way here your majesty”He said bowing gently
“You are getting me scared,please tell me what’s wrong?”I said again
“You have nothing to be scared of your Highness,your father is finally awake”He said
“He is finally up,I was also surprised when the nurse came to give me the news,I thought the treatment wasn’t going well as planned but it did work and………..”I didn’t wait for the doctor to finish what he was saying because I ran out heading to my father ward
I opened the door and saw him laying on the bed,The nurse was examining him
“Daddy “I called softly and he looked at me
“E……Emma”He called softly and quickly I ran to him and held his hand
“Daddy oh how have missed you”I cried softly
“My child”He said softly
“Have missed hearing that”I said as I kissed his hand
“Thank God you are finally awake”I said as I layed my head on his chest.
“Are you sure of what you are saying?”I asked the nurse who I had bribed to get some information
And she had come back only to tell me that the patient who Dora and Brian had always come to meet is finally awake
“Of course am sure,I saw and heard it myself,Now that have told you,I better go back to my post”She said and left me standing there
Finally! Finally Peter Chadwick is awake,I thought.
I think the time has come for Me to take further steps in my revenge and now that he is awake am sure that he will be willing to help me,After all he owes Helen and I.
