The air around us was awkward.


What do I do?.


“You little boy…maybe I should just send you to a boarding school” Leon yelled, he was really angry.


“Why should you….?, It’s against my will as a child…am staying home with mommy….I’ll protect mommy from


you!” He yelled back.


“Really?, I should be protecting her from you!” Liam fired back. I was kind of enjoying the show.


“Am her husband!”

“Am her son…. and i can equally marry her when am a bit older…..I know am handsome than you, right

mommy?” He asked and both eyes were on me.

Liam was like the little version of Leonel…. but why do Liam have to put me in the middle of all this.

“Mommy I said right?” Liam asked again frowning his face. I look at Leonel and he frown too.

“I….yes……. ” I muttered

“What!!” Leonel yelled

“I mean …. no….. ” I switch

“Mommy!!” Liam yelled

“I mean I don’t know”

“Daddy you’re making things hard here. I found mommy…. I made mommy come home….I made her stay…

know this SHES MINE!!!!” he yelled.

“Ok…. well…. I woo her …..I fought for her…. I protected her….. I engaged her…..I married her…..I loved

her….. and I made her made you…… so….SHES ALL MINE!!!” Leonel fired.

“That’s not true…… that’s not true” Liam said. His voice was now cracking, he was about to cry. Leonel was

getting the upper hand.

“Aaaahhhhh………. a.a..a.hhhhh…… ” Liam burst into tears and Leonel was smiling. “I won’t let you have her for

long!!!!” He cried and want out of the room.

“Liam…….. !” I called about to run after him but Leonel stopped me.

“Let him go…. he’s being a distraction!” He said

“Seriously Leon just stop it…..why are you acting like a child!?” I asked

“What did I do…. that little fella was about to claim what’s mine. I can’t let that happen!”

“Well that little fella is our son….. move!!!” I push him out of the way.

I finally met him in his room crying on his bed.

“Baby!!” I called

“Leave me alone…go meet daddy!” He cried.

“Aww…. am so sorry… please don’t cry….. ”


“How can you love daddy more than me!!” He asked as he raise his head up. His big round eye were red and swollen.


“Who said I love daddy more than you?” I said…..I hope Leonel is not hearing this.


“So?…..” He said paying his full attention as me.


I wipe his face and carried him on my laps. He was so small, so small but mighty.


“I love you more than daddy!” I said






“Tell me why you like me more than daddy?”


Leon who was listening by the door was so angry, he wanted to go into the room and drag gem away from


that little wizard. But he stayed cool. He must send him to a boarding school after the summer holidays…..






“Why do you live me more than daddy?” He asked. His tears stop flowing now.


“Well because you’re super cute and daddy is…uhmm handsome!” I said and he smiled.


“Really?” He asked


“Yes….I like cute men more than handsome men…’re cute, adorable and sweet…but daddy…..his


handsome, hot and cool”


“How is daddy hot?, Is he having a fever?” He asked. Oh how could I say hot to a two year old.


“…yes….yes….daddy always have bad fever….and it’s not good for mommy!” I said. I hope this make sense to


him because it doesn’t to me.


“I don’t get you mommy!” He said. Let the wind just blew me away.


Leon who was at the door knew gem was at a dead end. Hearing her say those things about him he couldn’t help but smile.


Leon opened the door. I sigh in relief.


“Daddy what do you want?” Liam asked as he hugged my neck. I choked.


“To make a deal” he said


“Huh!?” Liam and I said at the same time.


“Let’s share mommy” Leonel said.


“No….i want her to be all mine” Liam claimed.


“Okay let’s see if that will work for you” Leonel said about to go.


“Daddy wait……I…I Know I can’t beat you because am still young….I’ll let you share mommy with me for now


but when am older…she’s all mine!” He said. I could help it….I tried hard not to laugh.


I was worried about Sasha… I have to see her.


Leon seems to see through me….no matter how I tried to cover up but it was no use.


“Liam… remember that story book you said it was your favorite?” Leon asked


“Yes daddy, what about it?”


“Why don’t you go get it and show mommy!” He said and Liam spring up and run upstairs.


“What’s wrong?”

“Nothing” i lied.

“Gem….talk to me!” He said and hold my hands.

“I want to go….. I mean….to.sasha…and my Uncle….”

“Your uncle…. ?”

“Madam….you cannot go…..” Noah interrupt.


“Why!!” I asked.


“There is something you don’t know, about your so call uncle!!!!”……………………
