“I’m at your gate right now and the security man refused me in, I’m not leaving here until you come out and settle me. I know Olivia has gone back to her place.. for your information I also know where she lives and I may decide to pay her a good visit… maybe a de-ep talk about who Kaka really is…do the right thing to avoid many troubles, do something now that I’m here or I’m going over to visit your wife to be, she may even decides to give me double of what I’m asking you… she has one of the biggest supermarket that is well managed for her by her workers…Olivem. combination of her name and that of her daughter…I know everything Kane and I’m the last man you should be messing with..
Wilson s£nt the test message to Kane and waited outside and without wasting time the security c@m£ outside and told Wilson that kane asked him to come inside and he immediately did.
Kane stood and watch Wilson approach
“What sort of test message is that Wilson…are you threatening me… now listen to me…I can joke with everything but never with Olivia and my daughter, stay far away from her and never you in your life threaten me except you want to go back to prison or dig your grave…you wouldn’t want that but I can make that happen if you ever throw such an expensive joke…here is half of the money you demanded… take it and disappear…I don’t want to see you here again…
Wilson collected the money, but he will come back soon for more until he collects enough money from Kane.
He quietly left without a word
After another week he returned back and s£nt another test message to Kane who was not in the house then.
Kane got the test and quic-kly deleted it.
When Wilson started calling he ba-red his calls, which made Wilson not to be able to reach him
The security informed Wilson that his boss wasn’t around.
Wilson sat outside the gate to wait for his return
He was still there when he saw Olivia driving down in her car with her daughter.
Olivia was surprise to see Wilson sitting outside the gate all by himself.
She st©pped right in front of the gate as the security opened the gate for her to drive in.
Wilson stood up on seeing her and she beckoned on him to enter inside and he quic-kly did.
After Olivia drove in and parked she stepped down and walked up to Wilson after asking her daughter to go inside.
“Why are you sitting outside the gate… what happened.. I’m so sorry. even if Kane is not around you should have come inside and wait for him…was it the security that asked you to remain outside… that’s not right… have you called Kane over the phone to let him know that you are here… I’m so sorry for the trouble of waiting outside the gate……
“No…you shouldn’t be Sorry…I just decided on my own to wait outside for my friend…the security has no hand in it…since Kane is not around…I called him but his line is not available… sitting inside here all by myself will be boring so I decided to wait outside..
Olivia took Wilson inside and offered him drinks and snacks which he accepted gladly and thanked Olivia.
Olivia started the evening food quic-kly since Wilson was around so that he will get to eat something today.
Emerald was upstairs in the room well decorated for her by her father, while watching a programme on her television, she was going to spend the weekend with her mum in Mr Kane’s house which was the name she calls Kane.
He will officially become her dad once he marries her mum.
Emerald looked forward to having Mr Kane as father, he was her mum’s hero and she likes him because he is always caring and gives her everything she wants.
Olivia Later sat with Wilson in the living room as they watch television while the food Cook in the kitchen.
She asked the housekeeper to keep an eye on the food while she sit to entertain Wilson who awaits Kane’s return.
“How’s Olivem moving… how do you combine it with schooling, wedding preparations and your ti-ght schedules…. asked Wilson as he focused on Olivia who wore a very attrac-tive smile
“Is going on fine, I manage my time very well that was why I employed able hands who I trust to give me good results and they have not disappointed me before, I’m rounding up with school don’t have much to do again… I’m trying to focuse on the wedding preparations… settling down with Kane is my dream come true…he is a good man, you know…so tell me…are you still relocating back to the state where you work or you are here to pitch your tent for good… how long have you and Kane be friends…he does not really mention you that was why I was surprise when he introduced you to me that day as his friend… tell me how long you two has been together…
“Well, let me answer your questions one after the other, first of all i’m here to stay.. I’m not going back to my former place…so I’m pitching my tent here… to answer your second question…I have known Kane for a long time…Kaka use to be my close pal before I relocated to another stat…
Olivia blinked several as she ha-rd the name Kaka again. Every other thing that Wilson was saying she was not listening, she was very sure she heard the name clearer this time.
Olivia without listening to anything Wilson was saying went into a de-ep thought. “Kane name has the Ka in it, why haven’t I thought of the Ka before now, but why… How is it possible for Kane to bear such evil nick name…he could have picked up a better nick name than Kaka, his friend just called him Kaka again and there’s no denying the fact that I ha-rd it so clear…
Olivia did not notice that Wilson has paused from what he was saying and was asking her if she was okay.
when Olivia got herself she frowned before facing him
“Wilson, plea-se try not to lie to me this time…I heard you call Kane…Kaka. I ha-rd it very clear, I’m not stupid like I was meant to believe the last time…why do you call Kane Kaka…why? I hate that name…if is a mistake plea-se kindly try to avoid such… Kaka is not a good name for someb©dy like Kane, I know he has Ka in his name but doesn’t give anyb©dy right to call him such name… let me make you un-derstand something, Kaka was the man who brou-ght disaster to my home, he destroyed my hopes and dreams… I’m an orphan today because of that evil name… God brou-ght Kane to comfort me, he resto-red everything that Kaka took from me except my parents. Kaka is the unknown devil I intend to fight for the rest of my life while Kane is the angel I can’t live without…I hope you un-derstand me Wilson…I don’t know why you called him such but plea-se try not call him that again…I will really appreciate if you do so ..
Wilson nodded before apologising to Olivia, he stood up and decided to leave. Olivia asked him to stay and wait for Kane to return but he refused and left immediately.
Olivia couldn’t continue with the cooking as her mind keep wondering on the name she ha-rd Wilson very clear, this will be ma-king it the second time she was hearing such name.
There must be more, something isn’t right.
When Kane drove in that evening excitedly after seeing Olivia’s car parked, he alre-ady knew that she and Emerald will be spending the weekend over at his place. He bought lots of things for them.
As he got in he saw Olivia sitting down, lost in her own thought.
Emerald ran down to welcome him and that was when Olivia noticed his pres£nce and greeted him with a frown plastered on her face, she later tried to smile but Kane knew that is not the real de-ep smile that Olivia has.
He asked her if she was alright and she replied affirmatively.
Kane refreshed for the night and c@m£ to sit with her.
Olivia turned and looked at him de-eply.
she saw the scar on his face, she have never asked about the scar before because it wasn’t obvious but she was beginning to have questions for everything troubling her sanity.
Kaka has a de-ep cut on his cheek which made blood to svçkup on his facial mask, Kane has a scar on his cheek which he has never told her how he got it and she has never asked because she felt it wasn’t important until now.
As Olivia stare at him, Kane misun-derstood it for another thing and he bent over to k!ssOlivia but she turned her face.
Kane tried again but saw the coldness in Olivia’s eyes, he quic-kly spoke out.
” What is it honey, did I do something wrong… what is the problem, you have being acting all cold towards me ever since I c@m£ in…if I offended you in anyway or did something wrong why not tell me so that I can make it right, what is my offence… what is troubling you honey… plea-se talk to me…I love you so very much and whatever troubles you also troubles me.. I’m never myself when you are not happy… plea-se talk to me…
“How did you get the scar on your face, we have never talked about that before… and what is really your nick name while growing up…we also haven’t talked about that too…
Kane was surprised at the question, he has not expected such questions from Olivia, he wondered what brou-ght about the question as he tried to answer Olivia
“I don’t un-derstand why you decided to ask all this today… you are getting me worried, what is the problem… what did i do wrong honey… plea-se tell me
Olivia was furious as Kane tries to dodge the question, she stood up for the first time and shout at Kane who was puzzled at whatever that was happening
“Answer the damn question Kane, if I’m going to be your wife then we nee-d to be truthful to each other, do not hide anything from me, I’m open to you and I expected same thing in return Kane… I ask again…how did you get your facial scar and what is your nick name… what name do your friends calls you… why do i feel you are hiding something…why do I suddenly have this strong fear … tell me something.. anything you think I deserve to know… anything you haven’t mentioned before… if you truly love me then you should prove it further by opening up to me Kane…I love you so very much, you are like the air that I breath, I see you as Mr perfect and nothing will change that but I will be more hurt and feel betrayed if I find out that you are keeping something from me…it will be better if you tell me by yourself about whatever you are keeping from me, anything bad that is attached to your name… I will feel hurt but I will forgive you eventually because you told me by yourself but if I find out later that you have being lying to me then everything is going to change real bad because I hate liars and pretenders…I maybe over reacting right now but if that will lead me to whatever you are keeping away from me then is all for good…
“I don’t know what has come over you, I don’t know what I did that provoked you tonight…I just don’t know but I am not hiding anything from you… you alre-ady knows me Olivia… you know everything about me…I can’t hide anything from you my love… I’m sorry if I did something wrong or make you feel like I’m hiding something…I am not hiding anything…I can’t hide anything from you Olivia… you are going to be my wife and marriage should not be built on distrust…I got my facial scar while growing up, me with my friends were pla-ying one day and one of them threw a heavy stone and it mistakenly landed on my face and left this little scar, I don’t have a nick name, all my friends back then calls me Kane even till now… plea-se Olivia st©p this.. you are getting me scared with your sudden reaction towards me… everything I told you is true…I can’t lie to you… trust me….
Kane was on his feet pleading, Olivia was not satisfied with his reply, she still felt Wilson can’t mistakenly mention Kaka twice, if the first was a mistake then this second time confirmed that the first was never a mistake, Olivia who was not taking it at all nee-ded to un-derstand why Wilson calls him Kaka twice.
“If what you are saying is true then why did Wilson, your friend calls you Kaka…no, don’t give me that look… I’m not fooled, Wilson was here today and while waiting for you to return, we started having a normal gist and he refers to you as Kaka. This time around I ha-rd it clearer and I knew you lied to me before… on the day I ha-rd same name… you are lying… why did he call you Kaka, of all the whole names in this planet why will he call you such…
Kane was shocked and afraid as he ha-rd Olivia say that Wilson c@m£ around. He bec@m£ confused because he did not know what Wilson has told Olivia.
But he was certain that Wilson will pay for the fire he c@m£ to set between him and Olivia
Kane tried to pacify a furious Olivia to calm down and when she bec@m£ calm she walked away from him to her daughter’s room to sleep, leaving a disturbe-d Kane to nurse his troubled heart.
The following day, Kane could not wait  for morning to come before driving off in search of Wilson.
Episode 10
Kane speed down that morning to Wilson’s house, throu-gh out the night he couldn’t sleep, all he thought off throu-gh out the long night was what Wilson might have told Olivia.
He has warned Wilson never to call him Kaka and yet he went ahead to so in his abs£nce to Olivia, the only person he was hiding such a name from.
When he got to Wilson’s place he parked his car and rushed inside shouting Wilson’s name.
Wilson was awoken by the noise and when he looked throu-gh his window he saw Kane who was fuming in anger and waiting for him to come outside, Wilson wondered why Kane decided to come to his place this early morning. ever since he moved into his new ap@rtment Kane has never bother to know where he live.
He has only told Kane where he rented his new ap@rtment during one of their conversation but Kane never showed interest in where he was staying until now.
Kane later proceed to Wilson door after he saw his window curtain shift to one corner, which means that Wilson was watching him and has refused to come outside
Kane hit ha-rd on the door severally with his fist before Wilson c@m£ to open the door, and immediately the door was opened, Ken rushed up at Wilson, and he gave him a ha-rd b!ow which made him to stagger back, Kane gave him another and the ha-rd b!ow kept coming until Wilson was on the ground.
Wilson who was taken off guard tries to fight back despite the fact that Kane looks stronger than him. Wilson manage to throw few punches at Kane, he kicked and fought to stand up as Kane tried to strangle him on the ground, he fought ha-rd until he turn Kane over to the ground, sat on him and started his own punching as the gangster spirit took over both of them.

Kane sat ha-rd on Wilson’s chair, defeated and held his head in anguish. Wilson try to clean up all the broken glas-ses and all the mess they both left, he washed off the blood from his face and brou-ght out drink from his small fridge.
He poured whiskey in a glas-s cu-p and hand it over to Kane.
Kane collected the drink and drank as they both sat to talk man to man, this time around they spoke calmly as friends would. Kane poured out all his fears and Wilson encouraged him with kind words.
When Kane finally returned home Olivia was gone with her daughter and she left no message of where she was going.
He tried calling her line but it was off, Kane refreshed and drove off again to Olivia’s house but she was not there, the security said she has not come home since yesterday.
Kane drove off in search of her.
Olivia called Helen to inform her that she was coming over to her place but Helen traveled with her husband and will be coming back the following day.
Olivia thought of Doctor Kate, she nee-ded to talk to someb©dy and she called Kate who informed her that she was in the hospital and asked her to come right away.
So Olivia drove down with her daughter to the hospital to see Doctor Kate.
As she walked down the corridor she saw Doctor Mark, speaking encouraging words to some patients who were on their way out.
She managed to smile towards his direction as he smile and wave at her, before she could turn into Doctor Kate’s office Mark rushed up to her, Emerald greeted him with a smile, Mark responded by gently squee-zing her shoulder.
“Olivia…Olivia…wow…I can’t believe my eyes when I saw you…look at Ema, the baby of yesterday…she is all grown into a beautiful princess…wow…I’
m happy to see you two…how is your husband…although you did not invite me for your wedding but I forgive you anyway…I can’t hold a simple grudge against you…..what brou-ght you down to this side of town today…
“I’m not yet married Mark…wanted to finish up with law school first before walking down the aisle…happy to see you too…I’m here to see doctor Kate…
Mark nodded as Olivia walked past him into doctor Kate’s office.
