CHAPTER 60&61 °° BROKEN°°
FEW DAYS AGO... It has become a habit of his, he just liked spending time with him, that was the bond they had grew. So that very day, he picked up Ricky from school and they were on their way to his car. They got into the car and Miguel locked Ricky's seatbelt and did his as well. He ignited his car's engine and zoomed off. "So where are we going today?" Ricky inquired coz he always took him somewhere whenever he comes to pick him up and he took him back home. Nanny Clara had met him once or twice this event but she doesn't know he was Yolanda's husband. "An island." He said and Ricky eyes widened. "Yes, it's a beautiful island and trust me when I say you'll love it, swears." He told him. "You don't need to tell me, I already know I'll love it. My teacher said that island is a very beautiful place to be in... Oh my gosh! I can't wait for us to get there." He gushed. "You sure can't." Miguel said. "Can I see it?" He inquired and Miguel nodded. "Sure, there's my phone." He pointed at the dashboard and Ricky quickly grabbed it. "Password?" "Sassy queen." He replied and Ricky furrowed his brows. "Seriously, sassy queen?" "Yes. That's my wife's name." He said and Ricky furrow only grew more. "Don't worry my boy, you'll understand when you get to my stage of life." He said Ricky only shrugged before unlocking the phone. "SASSY QUEEN." He pouted when he was done typing the password and the phone unlocked. "Where should I... Wait, why do you have my mom's photo as your wallpaper... Are you perhaps a fan?" He asked, going through his gallery and Miguel took his eyes off the road to look at him. "Wait, what do you say? Your mom? Is she your mom?" He asked and he nodded immediately. "Yes she's my mom. The one I told you about... And your gallery is filled up with her pics, you even snapped with her... Wait, do you know my mom? Have you met her before?" He suddenly took his eyes off the phone and asked Miguel that question, with a serious look on his face. Miguel quickly cleared off the road and found himself a safe spot which he parked his car. "Look here Ricky, you're probably mistaken. She can't be your mom, she's my wife." He said. "Are you trying to say I don't know my own mom again, don't you even see the resemblance... She's my mom of... Wait!" He stopped blabbering immediately as if he suddenly remembered something very important. "Did you say she's your wife? If she's your wife, that means..." He gasped immediately he remembered. "That means you're my dad. How's that possible Mr Suit?" He asked. That's the new name he began calling Miguel coz he was always on suit. Miguel shook his head in disbelief and quickly turned his car engine and began driving speedily. "Hey! What's wrong Uncle Suit? Slow down before you get me kîll!" °°° <NEXT DAY ** HOSPITAL> Miguel was seated in the office with Ricky beside him. The doctor was seated at their front, he opened his cupboard and brought an envelope which he handed to Miguel. "Okay, here's the DNA report." He said as Miguel took it from him. "What does it say doctor?" He asked, his mind was in contemplation. He didn't even know what to think at this moment. "You should check it yourself." The doctor said and he sighed. What if Ricky was his son? Though, even without a DNA test... 99% circumstances has proved him to be his. He was a photocopy of Yolanda. His birthday was exactly nine months after Yolanda's birthday. He was four years, the same four years the incident happened. His mom left him as well... Everything was just connecting to Yolanda. He slowly brought out the paper from the envelope. Ricky just watched the two in silence, clueless of what was going on. "Darn it doctor. Just tell me what it says, I can't check it." He said and the doctor smiled. "Well, the DNA states positive. The boy here is 99.9% your biological son." He announced and Miguel closed his eyes. "Doctor... Please repeat what you said." He told him and the doctor nodded. "Mr Miguel the DNA test which you asked to be conducted on this young boy, to confirm his paternity has been successfully carried out and the result is out and it states that the boy here is 99.9 if not 100% your biological son." He explained and Miguel smiled. "Yes!!!" He suddenly scream, frightening the doctor and Ricky. "Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! Whoa!" He screamed, carrying Ricky in his hand and twirling him around in the office. "Gosh Mr Suit, stop spinning!" Ricky yelled and he laughed. "I'm just super excited. You're my son!!!" He screamed. He was happy that what happened actually bear a seed, at least Yolanda will be able to forgive knowing that he is her son's father. "You... You are my dad?" Ricky asked immediately he stopped spinning him. "Yes big boy!" He screamed. "Yeee! So I now have a dad, yippee!" He clapped his hands excitedly. "Right doctor?" He asked and the doctor smiled. "Yes." Ricky smiled before hugging Miguel tightly. Miguel as well did the same, ruffling his hair.
<PRESENT ** STARLIGHT HOSPITAL>
“What the heck!” Fernando blurted out, looking at his phone.
“What happened?” Marianna asked immediately, looking at him.
They were in her mom’s ward and she was sitting beside her bed while Fernando sat on the couch pressing his phone.
With Fernando’s help, they were able to pay for the surgery and it was carried out on her four days ago… Now her mom is fine, though she’s not all strong yet.
“Have you seen the news?” He asked and she shook her head.
“Yolanda was framed.” He said and Marianna walked up to him taking the phone from him.
“Damnit!” She muttered.
She needed no one to tell her whose handiwork it was, she knew very well it was Camila’s doing. That bítch!
“Thank God Miguel was able to clear her… I’m sure the news will be down in no time…” He said but Marianna wasn’t listening.
“But who would have done this? I would have said Romina but she has been arrested or could she have perhaps escaped?”
“Are you here at all?” He asked when she wasn’t saying anything.
“It’s that bítch’s doing.” She suddenly blurted out.
“Bítch? Who are you talking about?” He asked, puzzled.
“Camila? Who’s Camila?”
“Ma’am’s secretary and the only one close to her.” She said, confusing him more.
“What are you talking about? Who’s this ma’am?”
“Marianna.” Her mom called and she turned to her.
“Mom… You’re awake?” She asked, rushing to her.
She helped her sit up.
“How’re you doing now mom?” She inquired.
“I’m good as new, thanks to Fernando.” She smiled and Fernando smiled as well.
“I’m glad I was able to help.” He said and she nodded.
“Yeah, thanks… Mari, when will I get discharged, I’m getting sick of this hospital.” She complained.
“Mom… You’ll get discharged soon, you just have to bear for now.” Marianna said.
“Talk to the doctor, I’m tired… I wanna go home.” She pouted.
“Here, have water.” Miguel urged, giving her the glass of water.
She took the glass from him and was about drinking it when she paused. She looked at him and asked:
“What you said earlier… Was it true? Or you only said that to defend me?” She asked and he sighed.
“Drink up first.”
“No! I don’t wanna drink water! Tell me Miguel, were you being honest?… Are… Are you the r@pist?” She asked, hoping it wasn’t true.
He couldn’t be the one… He can’t possibly be the one!
After the whole saga at her company, she came back home with Miguel, Ricky and Mr Adams.
The crowd was arrested even though some managed to escape. The news has been taking down and every blog site and news channel who took the rumors has been brought down.
That is what they get for tainting his sassy queen.
“Baby!” Mrs Adams screamed immediately, entering the mansion with Mr and Mrs Gonzàlez and Gael, Bella and nanny Clara.
Only God knows how they all ended up coming together.
“Answer me Miguel! Do you know something? Are you the one?” She asked curiously, ignoring her mom.
“Clara, take Ricky to his room.” Mr Adams instructed and nanny Clara nodded before taking him away.
“Yoyo, are you alright? How did this happen?”
“I didn’t ask you to be sorry, just say the Fůçƙïṅg yes or no!! Are you the one?!” She yelled.
And silence ensued.
“Ye-yes… I’m the one.” He slowly replied and that was enough to shatter her heart.
She shook her head, tears threatening to fall off her eyes.
Mr Adams gasped, he was the one.
“I swear it wasn’t my fault Landa, believe me.” He quickly added.
“You… You r@ped me… You…” She quickly palmed her lips, tears rolling uncontrollably from her eyes.
“Believe me when I say it wasn’t my fault, I can explain.” He said.
“Explain?… What is there to explain Miguel? You’re a r@pist?”
“No I’m not!”
“Can someone explain to me what’s going on here?” Mrs Gonzàlez finally demanded with a furrowed eyebrows.
She was obviously not the only one who was confused. Mr Gonzàlez, Mrs Adams and Bella were as well.
He began explaining everything to them…
A WHILE LATER…
A slap from Mrs Gonzàlez sent him falling immediately he was done with his explanation.
“You perverted son of mine, how could you?” She yelled at him.
“I’m sorry mom, Landa.” He called as he stood up immediately, his hand on his burning cheek.
Yolanda was still seated on her couch as tears streamed down her eyes, uncontrollably.
“Was this what I taught you?” She questioned rhetorically and Miguel shook his head tearily, even though his reply wasn’t needed.
“Yo-yo-yo-yo…” Mrs Gonzàlez stuttered before falling to the couch.
She was still in shock. All this happened and she knew nothing!
Gael wasn’t surprised but he was kinda scared of the condition of the situation.
Bella was also surprised. Tho she knew about the r@pe incident but she never for once thought it will be Yolanda.
Was nature playing a dirty game on them??
Mr Adams seemed to the most shocked person there as he couldn’t even utter a word.
This was too horrible to be real.
“I sent you to college to study but you didn’t do any of that… You went about partying, flirting, sexing… Seriously! You even r@ped someone and we knew nothing about it!” Mrs Gonzàlez queried.
“No mom, it wasn’t my fault sw…”
“Don’t give me that Fůçƙing excuse!”
“Goodness!” She breathe out.
“Landa?” Miguel called at Yolanda who still haven’t said a word.
He walked to her.
“Landa please say something.” He begged.
“I’ve never been this tongue-tied in my life, Miguel.” Mr Gonzàlez finally spoke up.
“Dad, I’m sorry.” He apologized.
Yolanda stood up at that time and began walking out of the house like a walking corpse.
“Landa! Sassy queen!” He called, rushing to her.
“Landa please don’t give me the silent treatment, say something.” He begged pulling her by her arm and a slap followed immediately.
Miguel slowly raised his head to look at her. No doubt, she was deeply hurt. It could be seen in her eyes.
“I should say something?” She chuckled in tears.
“Are you really ready to hear what I have to say?” She asked rhetorically and he nodded slowly.
“I am Landa, I really wanna hear your mind.” He said.
She chuckled, wiping the tears in her face.
“You really want to hear my mind, you really want to hear my mind.” She repeated, sniffing.
“Why did it have to be you Miguel?!” She suddenly yelled.
“Do you know how much hate I have for that r@pist? And… It turns out to be you! Ahh! Of all people, why did it have to be you?” She questioned and he bowed his head.
“Sorry… If sorry could solve a problem do you think there will be any need for the police?! (Chuckles sadly) Do you know what I went through to birth Ricky? I almost lost my life!” She yelled at him.
Remembering those pains, more tears rolled down her cheeks. She couldn’t give birth to Ricky just like every mother do coz her hymen was still tight.
So she had to birth him through CS operation. The operation almost took her life, she lost alot of blood… Literally, she died coz only God knew how she escaped that day, but then she slipped into coma for three months after birthing her son.
She cussed the r@pist for ruining her life. She also hated her son because he had his blood.
She hated her son coz of that ràpist, she changed her lifestyle coz of that incident.
She suffered emotional and physical trauma because of him. She… Gawd!
“Stop saying sorry!! Just stop it!” She yelled furiously.
“I do not want to hate you Miguel, so I’ll be leaving… Don’t come for me, I beg of you!” She pleaded.
“No Landa, you can’t leave me.” He said.
“I’m sorry but I’ll have to.” She said.
“Mommy…” Ricky called, walking into the living room just then.
She wiped the tears on her face.
“Thank God you’re here Ricky, let’s go.” She said and took his hand.
“Going… I thought we’re here to stay?” He asked.
“No, we’re going to my own house.” She flashed a fake smile.
“What about daddy? Is he coming with us?” He asked innocently and Yolanda smiled looking at Miguel then back at him.
“No, daddy have some things to sort out here, he’ll come when he’s done.” She lied and Ricky smiled.
“Okay, bye dad.” Ricky said and quickly hugged him before running out of the house.
Yolanda turned to leave when Miguel called her.
“Could you at least give me a second chance?” He asked and Yolanda turned to him.
“I wish I could.” She muttered before turning to walk away but Gael stopped her this time.
“I think I’ll have to say this now. Yolanda, Miguel isn’t guilty here. It’s all my fault.” He announced and everyone creased their brow but Yolanda only stared with an expressionless face.
“I… I was the one who put the Viagra into his drink that very day.” He confessed and they gasped.
“Gael? What are you saying?” Miguel asked, obviously confused.
“I’m sorry Miguel, I didn’t know it was a Viagra, I thought it was a sleeping pill…” He said and Miguel grabbed his collar.
“Why did you wanted to sedate me?” He questioned.
“It’s of no use now Miguel, it doesn’t change the fact that you actually ràpe me… So I’ll be leaving, I’ll come get my things later or I might not need them again… Don’t think I don’t love you anymore, I do but I’ll have to leave.” She said and began walking out of the house.
“No, Landa!” He grabbed her wrist.
“I’ll appreciate if you don’t try to stop me.” She said coldly and sniffed.
She yanked her hands from his hold before walking out of the house completely.
He stood there, watching helplessly as she got into her car, nanny Clara and Ricky were already seated in it.
He shouted as she drove away with Ricky waving at him, with a big smile on his face, oblivious of what was going on.
She really left.
He turned to Gael, his eyes seething anger. He rushed to him, attacking him by the collar.
“Miguel.” Bella called.
“How could you Gael? You caused all this!” He grunted.
“I’m sorry Miguel.” He apologized.
“Sorry? (Huffs) Does this situation seems like one which sorry can mend? Thanks to you, we’ve broken apart. It’s because of you!” He yelled.
“Pray she forgives me otherwise, I’ll never forgive you, NEVER!” He said vehemently, before walking away.
“To say I’m disappointed, it’s an understatement of what I feel right now. How could you have done that Gael coz of some childish play? You’ve ruined his life with that little foolish act of yours. Gosh!” Bella shook her head, walking away.
“My daughter!” Mrs Adams lamented, collapsing on the couch.
So her daughter went through all this but she was unaware coz of her job… What kind of a mother was she?
No doubt, Yolanda was never gonna forgive… She should just keep wishing she does.
“My baby.” She murmured in tears.
The rest of the members in the room looked weaken with the situation at hand.
Was their marriage gonna break just like that?
Yolanda got down from the car and began walking inside, not looking back.
“Mommy.” Ricky called and tried running to her but nanny Clara held him back.
“Let her be.” She said.
“Just do as I say Ricky.” She said and he nodded.
Yolanda got to her room and closed the door behind her. She rested her back on the door as she let the tears rolled down her cheeks.
Her heart was in despair.
Why does her past keeps haunting her? How could he be the one? She has grown to develop so much hatred for the r@pist… She had cussed him immensely for the exuberant pains he caused her… The trauma!
And… Miguel was the one! Gawd, why?!
“Why did it have to be you? Why??” She cried.
She was shattered…
