After crying for an hour in her husband's embrace, she slowed down. Nathan could only hear her little sniffles and then pulled her to face him. A unknown pain was lingering in his heart looking at Emily cry like that.
Nathan realized that he has seen away from her for a along time and now he has to interfere in her life. He than observed her stained red rosey cheeks. He wiped fresh tears with his thumbs cupping her face. her eyes were blood shot from crying so hard.
Nathan wanted to know what was actually wrong with her company and Thames Danvers.
He then slowly hugged her again and questioned her.
" Why is your father asking money from you? and why were you asking him where he was. He will be at their house in Sydney right? "
Emily was not ready to answer. she was not done crying. Still she wanted to share it with him.
Just as she was about to reply, Kate came inside the study room and was shocked seeing them both on the cold floor and was worried looking a Emily' s face. She went near them.
" oh my god! Emily are you ok?. why are you crying?. nath-"
Seeing her mother in law, Emily moved away from Nathan and wiped her face with the long sleeves of her shirt. she wanted to clear her mind and stop crying. she got up from the floor and went towards Kate. she said " I am fine mum. I just hit a call from my father. I was a little emotional. come on, I forgot that you are here. sorry mum. I'll go cook lunch. " with this, Emily escaped from the mother and son. she then went straight to the kitchen.
Nathan and Kate, both could see that she is pushing her tears back so hard. Emily' s voice was trembling. As they both watched Emily leaving the study room, Kate looked back at her son. he was still looking towards the door. Kate snapped him back with a shocking news.
" She still didn't tell you, did she? Even while mourning, ahe lied to every single person because of your absence at Sydney. How can you ignore her to this extreme? and don't even think of lying to me now. I know you come up with millions of excuses. "
Nathan was puzzled at his mother's words. what has he done that Emily had to lie you everyone. He surely didn't know anything from her because Emily and Nathan never spoke to each other more than 15 minutes. and this 15 minutes talk was also because of their parents.
" Mum, what happened? "
Kate sighed and spoke
" Emily's mother, Ester Danvers passed away 2 years ago. "
Nathan was shocked. He's jaw dropped.
" what!? how?? "
Kate gave a disgusted look at Nathan and then she explained.
" Ester was suffering from blood cancer when we met 3 years ago. It is a shame on your part that you never even attemped to know what she is going through. Are you even my son?
Ester came here for Christmas 3 years ago and mer you remember? she wanted to talk to you about Emily. but you never spared your time.
she tooka promise from me that I won't tell Emily until her final stage, when she is in hospital. "
Nathan stood up from the ground.
" I called Emily when the doctors informed me that Ester has only few days left. before calling her, I call you. but you were drunk that day and not in conscious. I asked your father to get Emily to Sydney. when she came, Emily never left her mother's side. "
" when I knew about her cancer, Ester told Thames and Thames tried to convince her for treatment. ester denied spending her leftvfmdays for treatment. The next day Thames left the house handing the company to his brother Thiago Danvers.
Emily never cried over her parents until today. "
" I never heard of Thames after Ester's funeral. Thames attended the funeral and spoke to Emily for a minute. He said his goodbyes to her and nodded towards me and your father. "
" she called you many times, Nathan. you didn't pick up for 3 days. she then came back here to Melbourne. until now she never spoke about her parents. "
Nathan sat at the nearby chair and was lost in his thoughts.
Kate came by his side and patted on his shoulders. " It's too late for regrets Nathan. You did mistakes through out your marriage. This time, you have to mend your wrong doings. speak with her. try to release her grief. "
Nathan then nodded at his mother.
" I'll go help her in cooking. You go take a shower and meet us at the dinning. "
Nathan then left to their room and found their wedding album on the bed. there were tissues all over the bad and their marriage certificate saw seen on the bed side table.
beside the marriage certificate, there was a agreement which sent chills down Nathan ' s spine.
" DIVORCE PAPERS? "
