Afterward, I left to drop Andres at school, leaving Liam behind at the dining table quietly having his breakfast, Tatiana waited for us to leave before altering out. "Liam! Do you need a nanny, you know I can take care of your son, I am your girlfriend remember?" She says lifting his gaze upon her, "really! You! Take care of my son! Did you forget Andres hates you; he wouldn't even let me get married to you, and trust me, he might be a little child but I listen to him always". Liam walks away from her.

An hour later, I got home and walked past Liam's study room opened, inside was a photo of a woman hung up on the wall. The lady in the picture frame wore a red gown with her hair packed up from touching her back, indeed she was like those princesses in a fantasy story.

"What are you doing here?'.

I didn't know when Liam walked into his study room, the sound of his voice made it known that his voice was getting aggravated by the moment.

I veered back to see the anger in his eyes, as he fills up the distance between us within a split second.

"Sara! Why are you here?". He copies his words to me, waiting to hear the excuse I give him.

"Nothing sir!" I answered back,  although I told on it was nothing, Liam shifted his eye to the picture behind me and figured it out.

"It's nothing? Tell me the truth, you walked in here because of this picture frame right? You're curious about the lady, aren't you?'.  He says to me and that does about sums up everything. Yes Sir!" I said turning my eyes rearward.

"Okay! The lady you see on this picture frame is Andre's late mom, she died of cancer, and right about now, I need you to go out there and help with the preparation of her death anniversary, please".

I walked out of the room, not a single word came out from my lips, as I veered downstairs to see everyone busy, I walked into their midst and joined in the preparation, thus! A few hours later, we all pack up the decorations we used and left there sparkling clean.

One after the other, family and friends came in, seated amongst each other in the living room. Not quite long, Liam walks out of this room, holding onto his late wife's frame in his hand. He was clothed in a black gown, while beside him was Andres, who also was dressed in the same color.

They veered closer and dropped the frame at the center of the room, Liam and his son stood quietly, their head placed downwards, as we all did the same paying our respect to the late Mrs. Sonoma Khan, Liam's and Andres's late wife and mother.

For the past two hours, we stay quiet but some people tend not to keep to traditions, Tatiana stylishly sneaked out of the room, with a bottle of champagne in her hand. I still couldn't find what Liam saw in her, unbelievable.


I carried Andres back to his room, while Liam thanked everyone for making time to attend his wife's death anniversary, under such notice, after tucking Andres to bed, I walked back out and saw Liam drowning himself in alcohol. He seats with his hand on his hand, the button on his gown was slowly opening.

It hadn't been up to an hour I left him to tuck Andres to bed, and now he ends up creating a mess of himself.
