Zak: How the hell did you get in here?
Moe: Oh simple, I just told the nurse that I’m the twins stepfather.
Before I could say anything or even process what Moe had just said, Zak’s fist made contact with Moe’s cheek and Moe’s fist made contact with Zak’s nose.
The nurses came running in with security and escorted them out. I was fuming, my ex best friend and my kids’ father, the two men that I once trusted in my life have turned violent in front of my kids!
Me: What the hell were you thinking?!?!?
Moe: He was clearly not thinking..
Me: I was talking to both of you! Who starts a fist fight in a hospital, in front of twins who are not even a week old?!? Who?
Zak: I’m sorry Juwi, but this guy…
Me: Save it! You have it in for him from the time I fell pregnant.
Moe: See! That is why the twins deserve a father like me.
Me: Yah a lying dog like you is a perfect father hey?
Quite frankly right now I don’t want to see either of you and I don’t want you guys near my kids.
Zak: What the… those are my kids too! It’s my right to see them.
Me: Yah and as their mother it’s my responsibility to protect them.
Zak: Damn! I will never harm them. I love them.
Moe: If you loved them so much, you would’ve been there for them when they were born, not in a bar!
Me: That’s enough! Zak… they are your kids, so you may go in to see them and Moe you’re staying out here with me.
Zak reluctantly left Moe and I alone. I know Zak is trying to have a relationship with me, but I’m trying to ignore it. This relationship will never work and it might just make the twins life even more complicated, honestly will always be my first responsibility.
Me: Moe, what are you even doing here?
Moe: I wanted to see them and well you too.
Me: Why would you even come after all this time? Did I not make it clear that I didn’t want to see you.
Moe: Well you see Juwi, I’m a mess without you, I need you in my life and no, we can’t just be friends, I want you as my wife.
When Moe asked me to be his wife the first time, my heart flickered and my stomach erupted in butterflies, but this time I felt nothing, the only thing I felt was annoyance and anger. Annoyance at his timing and anger at him for leaving when he did. So they are right when they say, time changes things.
Me: I think we should sit.
We sat on a bench nearby and I took extra care in leaving a big space between us.
Me: Moe, I’m not going to lie to you and keep you waiting. Yes, I’m not ready for a relationship…
Moe: I’ll wait..
Me: Let me finish.. the thing is, Moe you broke my heart and weeks after you left I cried myself to sleep, hoping it was all just a nightmare and that the next day you’ll knock on my door and ask me what do I want for breakfast and when I was awake I hoped that you’ll come up to me and tell me it was all just a joke, just an act and you really going to marry me. But that didn’t happen and I realised my once best friend broke my heart and I had to find a way to move on without you.
Moe: Just give me one more chance…
Me: The truth is, I’ve moved on. No, I haven’t found anyone, but what I once felt for you, my heart just doesn’t feel it anymore.
Moe: Are you sure? Maybe you think you have moved on because you didn’t see me for such a long time, but once you start spending time with me again, your feelings will return.
Me: Moe, honestly if there was even a flicker of what we had before, I might have given you a chance, but I’m sorry…
Moe: I get it…and Juwi?
Moe: I truly am sorry… I didn’t realise then howmuch damage I’m going to cause.
Me: I forgave you a while back, but I don’t think it’s a good idea that you return to my life.
Moe: I understand, take care Juwi.
Me: You too, Moe.
