SISTER MARY 9
“I know you are just not yourself. Whatever is it that is worrying you, i pray you get over it soon” Chioma said to me very early the next day as she prepared to leave. I forced out a smile, saying nothing.
I truly never got myself all through the rest of the previous day. The sex we eventually had was so dull and far from sweet. I couldn’t help but imagine what was going through her mind that moment. I truly left her unsatisfied and disappointed.
Later in the day, I braced up myself and Called Mary, asking her to show up at my house by 7pm. She accepted without dragging issues with me which was very mind settling. However it was a long wait for me as i nervously waited for the clock to struck 7pm. My mind was uneasy, my lips prayed ceaselessly while my heart pounded very fast. I had to make my past with the silly girl go away no matter the price.
She finally showed up at my apartment at exactly 7:32pm, looking well composed and calm. She flashed a brief smile at me, greeted and settled quietly at a couch opposite where i sat.
“you know the reason i called. Are you pregnant for real?” i asked without wasting time. She breathed deeply, fetched a piece of paper from her hand-bag and gave to me.
I sweated as i went through it. It was a pregnancy test result. Positive it said, duly signed and stamped.
“so what do we do?. You very well know i don’t need this baby nor ready to start a family?” i asked coldly. She shrugged and drew back.
“i don’t know. That’s your decision to make, as for me, i’m not tampering with this pregnancy. It’s against my faith, moreover a child is a gift from God” she said slowly, mincing no words and putting me in a very tight corner. She really looked unconcerned and serious.
I was left with no choice than to change my tactics.
To be continued.
