"24 Days to Christmas" season 1 episode 21


Am not your biological Father, Yvonne”
“Daddy, How? I have always known you to be my Dad, i don’t understand.”
“I married your mum, when she was 3 months pregnant. She went through a lot. She was very young by then.”
“Dad, i don’t understand what you’re saying, my mother was pregnant with another man before she met you?”
“Yes Yvonne, she was raped by her own uncle and that child she was carrying is you Yvonne. I love your mother so much even till now that we are no more. It was out of the excessive love i have for Franca my own daughter that she divorced me. I asked her not to take you away because i wanted to make amends but the more i try the more Franca gets my attention”
Yvonne began weeping from hearing this heart breaking news. Yaw consoled her but her tears couldn’t stop running down her cheeks.
” You’re still my daughter Yvonne. I want to make you happy. Thats why my will is going to be in favor of you when i read it out on 25th December”
“Dad that’s not what i want, i wanna talk to Franca alone now.”
Yaw and Franca’s Father were shocked with her request. Yaw didn’t feel that it was safe for her to do so.
“Yvonne, i can’t let you do that, Franca is out of control now, its not safe.” Yaw said.
“she can’t harm me, i just want to talk to her.”
She stood up and went towards Franca’s room.  Franca’s father still was wondering what was going on.
Yaw man-up and began telling him everything that had happened while Yvonne was away.
Yvonne called for the door to be opened and once it  was done, she entered and saw Franca walking up and down in her room still furious.
Yvonne locked up the door behind her when she entered.
And there she was, coming face to face with Franca.
Meanwhile Yaw and Daddy also sat at the living room talking man to man.
Yaw explained all what happened and to his surprise Franca’s father took all the blame for Franca’s action.
“I don’t blame her a little bit, she has never lacked anything in life, i make sure she gets whatever she wanted before she even asked for it”
“But sir i believe u were only doing it for her good. This is the time we all should play our part in keeping our eyes on her.”
Back at Franca’s room, she wanted to pounce on Yvonne as soon as she saw her but again she was shocked by her presence in her room.
“What are you doing here? ”
“i want us to talk.”
” i don’t have anything to talk to you, i wanna go to my Yaw, give me the keys to the door now”
“You better shut up and stop acting like a kid that you are.”
Franca had never seen this side of Yvonne before. As much as she was furious, she was moved by Yvonne’s utterance.
Franca got mute and allowed Yvonne say what she got to say.
” I don’t know what you’re feeling against me right now, but all i got to tell you is that at the end of the day Yaw will be the one to decide who he will be with, it could even be none of us. But hey, you have also got what you wanted. I just realized that all this while am not your biological sister but a step. ”
When Yvonne was saying all this she was weeping as well. Franca’s soft part started revealing, she was feeling pity for Yvonne as she began telling her all what Daddy told her.
“Aside all this, i still love you. We both came from the same womb, i still love you Franca. I’m sorry for whatever i have been through, lets love each other like a family. Lets not make Yaw or any guy come between us.”
Franca was ashamed of herself for all what she has been doing, she reconciled with Yvonne and decided to finally come out and make a public apology.
Yvonne took Franca by the hand and they came out of the room together.
Yaw was surprised to see them both together holding hands.
” Yaw, Dad, i think Franca have something to tell all of us and i need you to kindly listen to her”
” Daddy, Yaw and Yvonne, i know i have been a pain in the ass to all of you. I can’t really explain myself but all i can ask is for you to forgive me”
” wow, Franca, come here, i forgive you, i partially blame myself too. Yaw has told me everything that had happened”
“I forgive you Franca” he looked at Yvonne took her by the hand and whispered into her ears.
“What magic did you do to Franca”
Yvonne laughed about it. Quickly the Father called for champagne to celebrate their reconciliation.
They drunk that whole dawn and interacted with each other. Yvonne and Yaw were just holding each other by the hand all through that dawn.
They sat and enjoyed themselves as a family till the following morning when the door bell rang.
Yvonne ran to check who it was, but to her surprise no one was there except for a white sheet on the floor which had an inscription:
“Revenge Time is Due”
Yvonne was shaken by this and immediately called the rest.
They all had no idea of who the note came from. What scared them most was the fact that the unknown person used pure blood in writing.
