Nurse: is she fair in complexion?

Nurse: ok,go to the second floor and enter ward II. She is there.

I rushed to where the baby was laid.

Omo if you see that baby, if am around,you wouldn’t ask, who is the father bcos the evidence is obvious.

I congratulated her for safe delivery.

I droped the bag she told me to bring and dialled Jenny’s number.

I told her to prepare a porridge yam and it should be peppery.
She told me that she has already started the preparing it and the food will soon be ready.

I went close to where my madam laid and sat beside her. ***

Me: how are you feeling?

Madam: * with a weak voice * feel better but the pain is too much.
