    GOODBYE GOVERNOR

    ______________________________________________
    Everyone in the family of the Debachevs loves Uncle Wilson. He is the senior brother of Emmanuel Debachev. He is a little too opinionated and believes whatever belongs to Emmanuel belongs to him as well except Emmanuel's wife which he, Wilson, believes is the only area he has no jurisdiction or right over.
    He loves his nephews and nieces so much that whenever he would come visiting, he would always come with bedtime and free time stories for them alongside some other tangible goodies but this traditional routine would soon be queried and ultimately cease too soon.
    'Welcome, Uncle Wilson', Emmanuella, his 13 year old niece screams with joy as she opens the door, giving Uncle Wilson a brief hug before leading him into the house to meet the others.
    'Hello everyone', Uncle Wilson screams as he sees the rest of the family all seated in the sitting room having some family time before the television. Hearing his voice, his twin 6-year old nephews, Franklin & Ferdinard come running to him for a welcome hug while his other 17 year old niece Brittany watches on amazed, waiting for him to relax so she can just pop in and say 'hello, Uncle Wilson' and he will whisper 'there's my senior lady' and gives her a kiss on the back of her hand.
    Days run into weeks and suddenly the wonderful Uncle Wilson everyone seems to love so much has Angela, 30 year old wife and mother of the Debachevs wondering when Wilson will be leaving the house back to his own apartment wherever that is. They feel it would be too crazy to ask him to leave so they decide to wait a little longer enduring what they term to be migrainous excesses.
    'He is driving us crazy too', Mr. & Mrs. Debachev would say to the kids when they come to them with complaints of how they would want him to leave.
    'First it was wonderful to see him after so long a while but right now, I cannot deal with him anymore. Can he just go already?', Brittany asks with some atom of disgust.
    'I do not like Uncle Wilson anymore. When is he going back?', Emmanuella grumpily asks as she walks into her parents' room in a tantrum.
    'Don't worry Emmanuella. It'll be over soon okay?', Angela says to Emmanuella softly and Emmanuella nods her head happily as she flashes a smile. 'Now can you excuse us. I want to have a little talk with your dad?'
    'Alright mom', Emmanuella says as she walks out of the room to go meet the other kids in the sitting room.
    For a few minutes, there is a deafening silence interrupted only by the wall clock ticking. Then Angela and Emmanuel say at the same time, 'So...:' They both want to start the conversation unknown by the other, assuming that the other was unaware of the import of the discussion. But when Emmanuel realizes that Angela has something to discuss, he allows her have the floor believing that her issue may be more weighty than his own discussion and on the grounds of the fact that he had been brought up to always put his lady before himself no matter what,
    'Ok. You go first, my love', Emmanuel says with a smile.
    'Thank you for always being a gentleman, baby', Angela replies. 'It's about Uncle Wilson's
    'Oh wow. We are really made for each other', Emmanuel says with a loving pride. 'That's exactly what I want to talk to you about as well'

    Emmanuel and Angela talk for a few minutes about how they might have made an error being so welcoming of him in the first place.
    'Ok, now we are not happy with his visit anymore. What shall we do to get him out?', Angela asks as they round off their debates and talks on the 'Uncle Wilson' matter.
    Emmanuel strokes his chin and looks up for two minutes and a few seconds as if asking Heaven for direction on the matter and listening for a feedback.
    'I've got it', Emmanuel says as he turns to Angela abruptly shaking her gently by her shoulders. He tells his plan to Angela is a whispery tone and she surely likes it because she would not be directly involved in the plan. It will be all Emmanuel's actions from here on out. Uncle Wilson still has his character in him when Emmanuel approaches him so it makes it quite easy and difficult at the same time to execute the plan. He is aware of the fact that Uncle Wilson may feel hurt and heartbroken by what Emmanuel would say to him but it is for a greater good so he does it anyway.
    'Uncle Wilson, You know I love you right?', Emmanuel asks trying to give a soft landing to the bomb he is about to drop.
    'Of course I do and I love you all too so much and that is why I have decided to....', Uncle Wilson is still talking when he is interrupted by Emmanuel.
    'Uncle Wilson you have to go', Emmanuel blurts out surprising himself.
    'You did not let me finish, Emmanuel', he says defensively. 'I wanted to say that's why I have decided to leave so I can keep things fresh but you did not let me finish. Anyways, I will be leaving this evening. I will miss you all'
    'We'll miss you too, Wilson', Emmanuel says quietly and somewhat emotionally.
    In the evening, Emmanuel drives Wilson to the airport with the rest of the family have mixed feelings about the whole thing. Yes they want him gone but watching Emmanuel drive him out of the compound and to the airport, sort of, makes them want to jump in front of the sedan he is being driven in by Emmanuel and beg him to return to the house but he is already on his way and it would be awkward to turn him back at that moment. They therefore decide to save the longing for the next visit which they hope will be soon.

    Mistake

    The dining room was decorated with red roses nd candles when she entered inside.
    I remember the day when we started.
    I held her hand and brought her in.
    The empty room was filled with happy vibes.
    Her first step in my house filled the atmosphere with pleasure.
    Her smile was the only thing which makes my whole day.
    I was never so happy before.
    Our heart were as hot as ice.
    We explore each other like nobody else had ever did.
    And we promised each other to love till the last Breathe.
    Now we were naked souls.


    After succeeding in my love life,
    I concentrated on my career even more then ever..
    May be that was my BIGGEST MISTAKE..
    I became so busy i started Neglecting her and she understood that it was my work.


    One fine morning she told me,
    "I am pregnant and..."
    I was all mad hearing those words and kissed her forehead.
    I didn't allow her to complete her talk.
    And this was my SECOND MISTAKE..
    I hugged her so tight like I never did before.
    Watching me so happy she just smiled with tears in her eyes and remain numb.
    I thought that was because she's happy too.


    And time just passed as fast as speed of light.


    And the day arrived,
    2 season changed and end of 8th month.
    Soon it was the time I can see you..

    It was my birthday..
    I was recklessly Shivering outside the ICU.
    And I heard you crying.
    Your first cry was something more beautiful than any love song.
    And Doctor came out with you.
    He gave you in my hand.
    And said "Congratulations it's a girl"
    Your tiny fingers holding mine was the wonderful gift I had ever received.
    She gave me a precious gift i.e you.


    But twist was still remaining.
    I asked doctor, "can I meet my wife?"
    "sir, we are really sorry.. We tried to save both; child and the mother.. But she was suffering from pre-eclampsia, low blood pressure problem so it was not possible to save both"
    "Why didn't you say me this before?"
    "Sir your wife knew this from very first day. But then she wanted to give birth to this baby. She was knowing about all this. We told her all these conditions before. And took undertaking"


    I fell on my knees.. Holding you I cried and remember the day she told me she's pregnant and.. I interrupted her.


    After some days,
    when I took you in same dark house..
    I saw the letter in dining room on that dining table..


    letter said;
    "jab tumhe yeh pata chalega tab bohut late hogai hogi.. naraz toh bohut hoge tum pr mere jane ka gum mat manana kisik aane ki khushi manana.. Jis din maina tumhe bataya I am pregnant Tumhari khushi dekh k mujh kuch aur nhh suja.. Agar main tumhe bata deti ki mujh low blood pressure hai aur main ready nahi hu to give birth to any baby toh tum kabhi iss baby ko aane nhh dete iss duniya meh.. Khud mar mar k jeete.. But mujhpe koi aacha nahi aane dete.. Maina jee li apni zindagi.. In 9 month meh maina tumhare sath har woh chiz karle jo main tumhare sath tumhare retirement k baad karti.. Mujh koi sikhayat nhh tumse.. Bas mere jane k baad humeare bache ko wohi pyaar utni hi care dena jitni mujh dete the.. Woh sab sapne pure karna jo humne sath mil k dekhe the humeare bache k liye.. Uska hath kabhi mat chodna.. Aur main toh humesha zinda rahungi teri rooh meh..
    I love you and i know you also love me alot..
    Don't worry I will be waiting for you at the edge of paradise..
    Bas jaldi mat karna aane ki.."


    Her letter made me so weak..
    I still regret my mistake of not listening your mom..
    I am the murderer..
    I am the criminal..
    I must get the punishment of Neglecting her..
    But, She took everything on her and remained quite always and never utter a word.


    This was your mom..


    May be,
    She liked it that way.
