Maya was at the hospital before the crack of dawn the next day.
She had been worried sick the whole night and wished she had not left her son alone in the hospital.
She walked briskly to the ward fearing the worst.
More importantly, she was relieved to see Junior well and alive.
She was surprised to see Prince Snr. already in the ward with their son.
He greeted her with a hug and a peck on both cheeks.
Maya loved it.
“I have a couple of surgeries scheduled today. I thought I would stop by before I get all busy. Hope you don’t mind.”
“No, not really. That’s sweet of you anyway.”
Junior cleared his throat when it seemed obvious that the two had forgotten he was there.
Maya went to him and kissed him on the cheeks.
Junior used to like it when his Mom did that but lately he felt he was too old for that kind of affection.
He gave a slight frown and Maya smiled, getting the drift.
Prince Snr. wanted so much to talk to the Doctor in charge but it was too early. The Doctor had not reported yet. He asked all the questions he knew to ensure the boy was not in any danger.
He got to his feet and said his good byes.
Without a shred of any doubt he loved every minute he spent with the boy.
He was so endearing. He thought it would have been fun to watch him grow.
Prince told himself he was not going to cry over the past. He was going to do his best with the present.
He was going to make up for the lost time.
Finally, he shook the boy’s hand, gave Maya a brief hug and headed for the door.
Maya had still not said anything about meeting him again.
“Can we have dinner tonight, Maya?”
“No, not tonight. I would want to be with Junior. He might need me.”
“I already asked for the boy’s permission and he granted it fully aware of my intentions. I think he would be fine. Besides, I promise to get you home early.”
“And what are your intentions, if I may ask?”
“Dine with me and find out. Be ready at seven, pretty woman. “
Maya gazed at her son who smiled back at her and nodded to signal his consent.
Prince walked out without waiting for a reply from Maya.
The doctor discharged Junior as soon as the results were ready and he was cleared of any danger.
Maya took him home and doted on him for a while.
She was, however, nervous.
She had never been on a real date. In truth, she did not remember the last time she went out with a guy.
And she didn’t even remember the last time she did something fun.
She had been too busy to enjoy those little but important pleasures of life.
The truth was she had not dated anyone in years.
She reminded herself it was not a date, they were just meeting to agree on the way forward as far as their son was concerned.
She was sure he would want to spend some time with the boy and that would be it.
Maya dashed to the salon to get her hair fixed.
She trimmed her eyebrows and did her nails.
She stopped by a boutique on her way home and picked a lemon green plain dress that enhanced her complexion so well.
And then she picked a pair of shoes and a clutch to go with it.
She smiled at herself all the way home.
She was aware she was being a bit childish but she couldn’t help it.
Maya was behaving like a teenage girl going on her first date and she knew it.
She admitted she was really looking forward to meeting with him again.
Time, however, seemed to have stopped for her.
It was only five by the time she bathed and put on mild make up.
She checked in on Junior and chatted him for a while.
He was so happy to finally meet his Dad.
He was aware his Dad was still in love with his Mom; his Dad told him that. They had talked a lot that morning before his Mom showed up at the hospital.
His Dad had told him he wanted to be a part of his life permanently.
Maya kept looking at her watch.
“I’m glad you are going out for a change,” Junior said with a smile.
“I’m not very comfortable doing this. You just came from the hospital and it’s my duty to be with you. Are you really sure it’s okay for me to do this?”
“Yes, Mom. You deserve a little happiness too. From what I’ve seen, that man brought some colour to your cheeks. You have my full blessing should you decide to marry him. He’s kind of cute.”
“Junior, stop saying those things. I’m not marrying anyone. We are just going to agree on how things should be as far as you are concerned. You shouldn’t fill your head with those thoughts. He is already married.”
“Are you telling me you will turn him down if he asked you to marry him?”
“He’s not going to ask that so forget it. He is a married man. I’m not settling for less. I’m not going to be the other woman no matter what.”
“You are avoiding the question, Mom. Will you or will you not marry him if he asked you to?”
“I think that concussion on your head is clouding your judgement. I need to get ready. See you.”
“Mom, you thought me not to hide my feelings but it looks like that’s exactly what you are doing right now. There’s no need for you to show what you really feel. I’ve not seen you this expectant and happy in the sixteen years I had known you. I think you deserve a chance at happiness.”
“And what do you know about these things? Don’t tell me there’s a girl you have a crush on.”
“Don’t change the subject Mom, you love him, just admit it. Just say it!”
Maya looked at her son without saying anything.
She left to her room to get ready for her outing with Prince.
She admitted she was really looking forward to the evening together if it was just to talk about Junior or watch him smile. His smile, always brought peace to her heart.
Prince was looking forward to their evening together too.
He went to the barbers and had a hard time choosing an outfit for the evening.
First, he tried on something casual then decided it was too simple.
He tried on a few other formal clothes but he still did not settle on anything.
He hated suits simply because he did not understand why a black man like him should try to suffocate himself in a fashion like that especially in these parts of the world when the heat was unbearable.
The only time he wore a suit was for his wedding to Mabel.
He did not want to be too overdressed for the occasion so he finally donned black trousers with a lemon green shirt.
He made sure he used his favourite cologne and then headed out.
Prince felt young as he drove leisurely to the restaurant.
What Maya didn’t know was that he lived in the neighbourhood.
He had lived in that neighbourhood almost all his life.
His daughter had led her to Maya and he would forever be indebted to her.
He checked himself in the mirror for the millionth time to see if he looked good enough.
Prince finally got to the restaurant but Maya was not there yet.
Maya drove in thirty minutes later and asked for directions so she could meet him there.
“What, don’t I get a hug after all the trouble I went through to look this nice for you?” he asked with that infectious smile she remembered so well.
Maya smiled, showing off her dimples that added a touch of class to her face.
“And what would you give me for the hell I went through to get here?”
“Come and find out how generous I can be.” Prince teased.
He got down from his car and headed for Maya’s.
The lemon top did something incredible to his looks.
Maya felt her heart beat fasten and she knew her heart still beat for only him.
Just a look at him and Maya’s steel fence she’d built around her heart came tumbling.
Maya suddenly yearned to be held, to be loved and cared for.
As he strode to her car, she fought the strong urge to ran into his arms and kiss those lips that had rendered her breathless and broken down all her resolve in one swift instant.
She felt the strongest urge to shout out her love for him.
