     #Season_2 Episode 34

                   BRIAN POV

It was late in the evening when I arrived at the hospital

With out informing any one of my presence I went to see Emma father 

He was awake when I walked in,seems like he was waiting for my return,I thought as I walked towards him 

Now looking at him closely I could now remember the resemblance between him and the man who had worked for us years ago 

"Seeing that you are here,William would have told you every thing right?"He asked 

"He has"

"You knew about it,That was why you reacted that way in the morning?"I asked 

"That was why? You are not right for my child?"He said 

"Because my parents caused her a lot of harm,Because I was also amongst those who caused harm on her and as you said this morning am still doing it right?" I asked 

"If you know all that then you must know that you have to leave her as soon as you can"He said 

"Didn't it ever occur to you that she might not want to leave me?"I asked 

"Am sure that once she Knows that your family ruined her life she would leave you instantly"He said 

"She loves me and I love her and........."

"Love! Love my foot,Your love isn't destined to last,You are from a family who destroyed Emma's life,you will be doing her good by leaving her and by Giving her back her place,Some thing you are now calling yours"He said 

I couldn't reply,I stood there just starring at him 

"Do as William says and tell her the whole truth,You don't want us doing that for you right?"He said again 

"Three days was what you gave me,I will tell her within that three days,That I can assure you"I replied and left the room.

 I got back home quite late,I didn't feel like seeing any one and so I went straight to my study

 I sat on the chair starring out at the garden through the window 

I still can't believe that the girl we had all bullied was my wife 

Why Had destiny be so cruel as to have made me meet her,Why did it let me fall so hopelessly in love,I thought sadly

Just then the door opened and my mom walked in 

"I saw you leaving a while ago,I was worried so I waited for you to come back,You look a mess son,What happen?"She asked 

"Leave me alone mom"I said as I kept on starring out side

"Did some thing bad happen to you? Do you need some thing, Should I help you get it?"She asked 

"Just leave"I replied wanting her to go 

"Did you fight with that wife of yours,Did she made you sad,I knew this would happen. That is why have told you to get a divorce for a long time now,Just leave that girl and marry Alic.........."

"Mom!!!"I yelled cutting her off 

"My Gosh you scared me"She said holding her chest 

"Leave before I lose my temper and say things you wouldn't like"I said 

"What have I said that has gotten you angry! I was only stating a fact about your wife"She said 

 Getting very angry I pushed away the things that were on the table 

"You have destroyed her enough,Just leave her alone"I yelled 

"What has gotten into you! It's not like am some demon that is out to destroy people"she said angrily 

 "Well you did destroy some one,You ruined her life years ago or have you forgotten"I said and at first she was confused but then she realise what I was saying and stared at me in shock 

"We rarely talk about that child,Why are you suddenly bringing it up?"She asked 

"Don't you have any conscience mom,You stood by watching how Father tortured that little girl every day,Didn't you ever feel any remorse"I yelled at her 

"What could I have done?"

"You could have done some thing,You could have stopped dad but yet you kept shut about it and what's worse you made me believe that dad was the rightful heir when it's all just a lie,He killed his brother just to get it,He stole that spot mom and gave it to me,some thing that it isn't mine"

"Calm down son,We did all of it for your sak.........."

"Stop saying you did it for me! I didnt want it,I never asked for it!"I said hitting the table with my hands 

 "Brian! What is wrong? Why are you being this way?"She asked as she began to get scared by my behaviour

"What you did in the past has come back to haunt us mom and I have to pay the price,I have to"I said as I sat down on the chair Thinking about Emma 

"What do you mean by that ?"She asked 

"You will find out soon " i said and stood up wanting to leave but she held me back saying

"Did you find out some thing,Do you know If she is alive? Who is it son? Tell me "She said 

"You don't need to know that,All you have to know is that I intend to give her back every thing we took from her " i said 

"What? But you can't do that!!!" She said coming to stand in front of me 

"Watch me"I said as I walked past her heading to my room 

  "Three days,Three days" William words kept on ringing in my head as I head to my room

I have to tell Emma the truth,She has to know the truth about her real identity,I thought  
   As soon as I got to the room, it was to see her standing by the window starring into the night 

"What's wrong?"I asked and on hearing my voice,She ran straight into my arms,Holding me tight 

"Where have you been,Did you know how worried have been?"She said as she held me close 


"I thought some thing bad had happened,You weren't picking my calls and you won't reply my message,I thought you had listened to what my father said and you intend to leave me"She said as she pulled back to stare at me 

"You weren't planning on doing that right,What my father said to you was just because he was scared don't put it to heart Brian"She continued when I didn't say any thing  

"Why aren't you saying any thing, What's wrong?"

"Emma I have to tell you some thing "I said 

"Please don't tell me that it's a divorce you want"She asked 

"Let's have a seat first"I said as I walked her to a chair nearby 

"Brian you are scaring me" She said as she held my hand 

"Emma I....... It's .........."

I stopped myself,I just couldn't tell her the truth.

I can't tell her that it was my family and I who ruined her life,It's some thing that is very hard for me to do,I thought as I starred at her 

"What's wrong Brian?"she asked 

"I......I just want to tell you that no matter what happens,I love you,I love you so so much"I said and that made her smile 

"And I love you too"She replied as she moved towards me to give me a hug

"Is that all you want to tell me?"She asked 

"Yes "I lied 

I know I was doing the wrong thing but I don't want to lose her yet,I wish there was another way out of this but there isn't and for the main time,I will just enjoy having her by my side 

I will talk to William tomorrow,Make some kind of deal with him,Any deal,As long as I have her with me,I don't care,I thought as I pulled her closer 

                  EMMA POV 
 "Emma my child,Come over here"A lady voice kept calling out to me and though I try to go to her I couldn't see her face clearly 

"Mom! Mommy!"I called gently wanting to hold onto her hand but each time she keeps on moving back 

"Mommy don't go,please stay mommy Please stay "I cried softly but the person kept drifting away from me 

 I woke up with a start when I heard the door close 

What sort of dream is that? Maybe am missing my mom,I thought as I got out of bed.

Brian was no longer in the room,Today was a Saturday,he never leaves the room early but today is different

Where could he be? I thought as I checked the bath room, I was about leaving the room when I heard his voice coming from the balcony 

I moved towards him wanting to surprise him by wrapping my arms around him but I stopped when I heard what he was saying 

"We have to meet,Let's talk about this face to face"He said 

"Emma won't be coming and i haven't told her yet,Telling her the truth is not some thing that can be done over night"

  Truth? What truth?,I thought as I kept on starring at him

"Let's just meet,Don't you get that Emma must never find out the truth, it's just as hard for me too "He said with so much frustration

"I will be waiting in the palace"He said and switched off his phone 

I quickly went back in and layed on the bed,Pretending to be asleep 

What truth can I not find out about,I thought.
