Keith's POV

Taking a deep breath, I typed the message I wanted to send to Maya.



Can we see?

I'm at work.

After work?

I'll be too tired to talk. I'm usually too tired nowadays to do anything except eat and go to bed.

I'd been trying to see her for almost a week but I kept getting the same replies from her. I'd gone to her father's house at night but the housekeeper told me that she'd gone to bed and said no one should disturb her. I assumed she did not want to see me and it was just so frustrating and understandable at the same time. I'd hurt her for so long and she'd finally gotten tired of bearing it. I hadn't known her true worth until she actually signed the papers and up and left when I wasn't around.

Just then, my mum barged into my office and I just sighed and leaned back in my chair before pressing my fingers against my eyes.

"Keith I do not know what you're high on but you will stop this madness right now."

I sighed before replying."I don't know you're talking about." I could feel the beginning of a headache and I didn't want to see her.

"Oh you damn well know what I'm talking about. Divorce? Didn't you read the contract? Do you not know the terms of the contract? Do you not know what the result of a divorce before the birth of a child is? I'll lose everything I've worked for." she screeched.

"I don't really care at the moment. It's not like I'll be out of a job." I replied, watching the veins I didn't even know she had in her neck pop out as her anger level increased.

"How can you be so selfish?"

"I learned from the very best." I drawled and watched her eyes widen before took a deep breath to calm herself and then plopped down into the couch.

"I may have been selfish when it comes to my relationship with other people but not with you Keith."

"Really? Why did you talk me into getting married even though you knew I didn't want to, all under the guise of business even though it was all a big revenge plan? I feel so fucking stupid. Why didn't it occur to me that you must have a reason for arranging a marriage between me and your ex's daughter? It wasn't for business. It was just to get your hands on Gunther's company."

"That may be true but everything I did, I did for us. For you, to make sure you won't lack for nothing."

"No. You did it for yourself. You did it because you love having power. You did it because you're vengeful."

She just sighed and stood up to leave. "Put an end to this Keith. Meanwhile I'll talk to Maya and Gunther about this."

At that I rolled my eyes. "If you intend to bully Maya into anything it's not going to work. Besides she's signed the papers and moved out and you know Gunther will not spare you a glance. Give it up mother. You're the reason for your loss. Don't blame me for it. And please do not stress her out anymore than she is."

"If you think I'm going to sit back and watch my lifework go to someone else, you have another thing coming." and with that, she left the office.


Trying to see Maya for the past two weeks and failing to had to be the most frustrating thing I ever had to go through.

I'd call and she'd say she's busy or tired or not pick at all. I decided to go and see her at home but she was asleep the times I got there, or so I was told. All that pointed to one thing: She didn't want to see me.

Dialling her number again, I waited for her to pick up and she finally did at the 5th ring.


"Maya, hi....How are you?"

"I'm fine. Everything is fine."

"oh. Alright. I'm happy to hear that."

"Do you want something? Because I can't be on the phone for long." she said briskly and I sighed before continuing. "I need to see you. Plea

e self hate I felt for thinking of killing my own baby just to keep you? You know how I am. You know I'm a really sensitive person but you didn't think of how it affected me. You were all distant and cold and I pleaded with you but you refused. And now you're telling me you miss me? Fuck you. This is the reason why I didn't want to see you. No matter how calm I tried to be about everything, you still succeeded in making me open the door to how I feel. Well there you have it. You are selfish and an ass and *sighs* please go away. I do not want to be around you right now."

I whispered that last part tiredly as I dried my tears with my sleeves. I promised myself I wasn't going to cry anymore but once again, my emotions got the best of me. I awkwardly got out of bed and made my way to the bathroom, hoping he'd get the unspoken message of my dismissal.

Closing the door behind me, I leaned back on it and pressed my fingers against my eyes to force the tears back. It hurt that bad because of my feelings for him. It hurt because the man I'd done all I could for could do that to me.

His words had thrown me off balance and made all the negative feelings I had bottled in come forward and for that I was thankful because it felt like I finally got rid of the weight on my shoulders since I left our home. I finally moved to pee and wash my hands before opening the door again. He was no longer there when I got out and for that I was a bit happy. I didn't want to see him again until I calmed down

I settled into bed and just before I fell asleep, my phone chimed indicating I had a new message. Reaching behind me to get the phone, I opened it and it was a text from him.

I didn't mean to make you cry this night and for that, I apologize. I hurt you and I understand why you hate me now and may never want to take me back again but I want you to know that I love you Maya, and I always would. Have a good night rest.

Dropping my phone on the other end of the bed, I fell asleep with just one thought in my head. Ass. I hate that I love you too.

Hey y'all. Happy new month. Sorry it took so long. My wattpad app was misbehaving and refused to work. It opened tonight for the first time and I finally got this down. I tried updating using browser but I kept loosing the work over and over again. Lost it 6 times. Frustrating. But I finally did it. How was it? Good? Bad? Don't forget to vote and comment. I really appreciate your feedback.

Till next time, ? and be ??
