LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Cynthia dressed up quickly and rushed to a nearby clinic to confirm her gesture. She sat down quietly waiting for her result to come out. Different thought wondered inside her heard. “Pregnant? For Nath? God, my father will kill me. What if Nath say he isn’t the owner or because of that marries Joyce? Why am i even concluding when i don’t know if I’m pregnant or…”
“Morgan” The doctor’s voice interrupted her. “Please, follow me”
Cynthia stood up instantly feeling her heartbeat. She sat in the doctor’s office staring at him to let the cast out of the bag.
“You are a month pregnant” the doctor handed the result to her.
“I’m pregnant?” Cynthia asked surprisingly.
“Yes” he replied.
Cynthia gently stood up looking at the result without knowing what to say.
“Have a nice day” the doctor said then Cynthia looked at him and concentrated.
Back to the resident of Mr Williams, Joyce sat on her bed with her hand on her forehead. She wore a bumshort and a what top. “What have i gotten myself into?” she began to think. “I have added more problem to the one i have already. What will Nath say..” she was interrupted by the presence of Miracle who came into the room. She kept her bag and quickly sat beside Joyce.
“Baby girl, you look worried”
“No oh, I’m not worried. How far?” she tried to brighten her face.
“I know something is wrong” Miracle stared at her.
“Everything became wrong when i made up my mind to marry Mento” Joyce stood up heading to her wardrobe.
“Is Nath coming for the wedding 2moro?” Miracle asked.
“I don’t know”
“But would you like him to come?” Miracle stood up too moving towards a table. She found Joyce’s pregnant result and began to read it.
“It’s of no use wanting him to come” Joyce turned. She saw Miracle reading the result then rushed and took it way from her. Miracle stared into her eyes.
“Why are you staring at me? And mind you, stop reading anything you see in my room”
“Joyce, you are pregnant?” Miracle asked. Her voice was loud enough.
“No oh, I’m not” Joyce put her face down.
“Joyce, I’m not blind neither am i an illiterate. Who is responsible for it?”
“Responsible for what?” Mrs Williams bagged in..
As Cynthia hurried home making sure her parents weren’t aware of the pregnancy, so as Nath laid on his bed with an engagement ring. He looked at it for a very long time thinking of how the proposal would be. “Where should i..” he was interrupted by a knock at his door. So he hid the ring under his pillow.
“You have been indoor” Agatha came inside and sat with him. “What are you doing?”
“Noting, just meditating”
“Hmm.. That reminds me, you told me about Joyce’s wedding. Are we going?”
“I will like to be there”
“Then i have to prepare” Agatha stared at him. “Have you heard from Cynthia today?”
“Planning to see her tonight”
“Wow!” Agatha exclaimed standing up. “It gonna be so romantic tonight” she danced out while Nath smiled and brought out the ring again and his phone. He quickly called Cynthia..
Joyce hid the pregnancy result immediately her mother came in while Miracle began to stretch her head looking for the right answer to Mrs Williams question.
“Responsible for what?” Mrs Williams was still inquisitive.
“Mummy, is.. is..” Joyce stammered looking at Miracle.
“I was asking her who is responsible for her sadness” Miracle interfered.
“Yes, that’s true” Joyce supported.
“Oh my dear, don’t be sad” Mrs Williams said petiosly. “I came to inform you to talk to Mento before tomorrow”
“Okay, i will mother” Joyce replied before she went out.
Miracle then stared at Joyce who sat down quietly. She looked at Miracle and said, “Thank u”
“Pregnancy cannot be hidden forever, you know that. So tell me..”
“Is Nath” Joyce interrupted.
“You must be kidding me!”
“I have known no man apart from him”
“And you are getting married to Mento”
“Please, don’t remind me of that, okay?!” Joyce shouted angrily standing up. Then Miracle remained quiet.
Nath took Cynthia out for a marriage proposal. Inside the car, he could see how quiet she was with her hands crossed on her thighs. “You don’t look okay to me” Nath told her but she didn’t respond due to she was lost in thought. Nath placed a hand on her shoulder before she realised herself. “What is troubling you?”
“No, nothing” Cynthia replied as an after thought.
They were in an open field where different people were having a lovely and romantic time with drinks. Cynthia wondered why Nath took her there, at the same time wondering how she would tell him that she’s pregnant.
“You don’t look okay to me my love” Nath held her hand but she didn’t respond feeling her heartbeat. “Talk to me my love”
“Nath I’m..” Cynthia began. “I have something to tell you”
“What my love?”
“I’m.. I’m pregnant”
Cynthia shook her head positively staring at him. At the same time, Nath’s phone rang-Joyce was calling but he ignored it..
