The labour room was busy as a young lady of about twenty two years of age was trying to put to birth, she mustered all her strenght to push the baby out, she thought if the baby would be a boy or a girl and what name she would give it, she prayed silently to God to keep her and the baby alive, she remembered, Elvis Chukwudi, the man who had promised her marriage but when he found out that she was pregnant, he dissapeared without no trace, she was heart broken when she went to his house one fateful saturday around ten a.m, his house was under lock and key, she wondered where’d he might have gone to, she brought out her nokia c-1 phone and called his number, he had picked the number and the first thing he had said to her was ‘What do you want Evelyn?’ she was surprised, he had never called her by her name when their were dating.
She tried asking him where he had went to but he told her he was in Lagos, she asked why he hadn’t let her know and he became very angry, he shouted at her on the phone, she was perplexed, why was Elvis behaving this way towards, she thought, she asked when he was coming back to take care of her and the baby, he got angry and told her he wasn’t ready to be a father and he isn’t planning to come back, with that he cut the call, when she tried calling again, the phone was switched off, she kept trying for weeks but it was switched off.
Her only brother, Peter who was the only family she had, took care of her.
Two months later, she stopped calling him and decided to get a job, her belly hasnt burge out yet, but her brother refused.
He was the one who took care of her till now that she was in labour.
“It’s a baby girl,” said an excited nurse who handed the baby to Evelyn, she smiled to her baby and called her Eberechi, meaning ‘God’s Mercy’
