Martin’s POV

‘ 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.

Lenata’s POV

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.

 

 

 

The Beautiful Mistake – Episode 40

 

Lenata’s POV cont.

I know I have tried to avoid him but deep down in my heart that sooner or later I will have to face the reality. I looked back at him and even though I forgave him seeing him again reminded me of how he threw me out when I was vulnerable. The pain my mom and Andrew made me go through.

Thinking of my mom, I wonder where she is right now.

‘Is he my son?’ He asked snapping me from my thoughts.

I couldn’t speak due to the tears that were threatening to fall.

‘I’m sorry for the pain you had to go through,’ he said maybe he read my mind.

‘Why are you back?’ I finally asked pushing back the tears.

I forgave him but am not sure if he has changed or he will just hurt my son. I don’t think I can forgive myself if anything happens to him.

‘Please, I have been looking for you for six years. Don’t shut me from your lives,’ he said but I couldn’t respond as Roy called coming inside.

‘Mummy, you are taking to long. Let’s just go before he bumps into you,’ he said with an eye roll.

‘Please, we need to talk,’ Martin said.

I looked at Roy then back to him.

‘This is my card, just call me anytime,’ he said and I just nodded.

‘Let’s go, darling,’ I said to Roy who had already gotten to where we were.

‘He didn’t reject always bumping into me and making me fall?’ He asked and I nodded.

‘Am sorry,’ Martin said.

‘Apology pending,’ with that he ran out.

‘Sorry, he is always like that,’ I apologized on his behalf.

‘You did a good job,’

‘I need to go,’

‘See you some other time.’

I nodded and walked out.

Martin’s POV

Saying am happy is an understatement, I have finally met my family. I drove back to the hotel to think for the best apology to give Karen. She did a good job of raising him up single-handed and brought up such a smart kid.

I picked my phone to call Andrew but I slid it back in my pocket. I don’t think calling him is the best idea, let me wait until I get them back.

 

 

 

The Beautiful Mistake – Episode 41

Lenata’s POV

‘Are you going to call him?’ Cindy asked after I narrated everything to them.

‘I don’t know what to do. What if he is contact with my mum and comes to destroy me again? What if he wants to hurt my son? I’m confused,’ I said and sighed.

‘And what if he has really changed? Don’t just base on the negative side,’ Myve said and her words seemed convincing.

‘What should I do?’

‘Give him an ear. Roy needs a father’s figure in his life. You have overdone it on him,’ Cindy said.

‘I should call him?’ I asked to be sure I heard her correctly.

‘Yeah, listen to him. It will help you analyze if he has really changed,’ Myve said and I nodded.

I picked my phone and made the call.

Martin’s POV

I was seated on the couch watching a Netflix when my phone rang.

I picked it immediately though it was a new number.

‘Hi,’ she said lowly.

I recognised her voice and honestly I had missed that voice.

‘Hi, thank you for calling,’ I said with a smile.

‘Welcome, um.. What are we supposed to talk about?’ She asked still lowly.

‘Can we meet and talk?’

‘When and where?’

‘Today, I will send you the venue,’

‘What time?’

‘In an hour,’

‘Okay,’ she said and hanged up.

I jumped up in joy. Her accepting to come was my biggest fear.

I sent her the address of the hotel and went to prepare.
