“Holy shit!” Aliyah cursed from the other end

of the phone. “Wait a second….you slept with

Alex? Kendra!”

“It just happened,Aliyah. Will you blame me?

I was sexually starved and he happened to

be there and all the time we’ve been dying

for each other and we just couldn’t find the

time to…Look, he wanted it and I wanted it

too. So, it just happened.”

Aliyah sighed. “Are you certain that he’s the

father.”

“Yes. I have the whole evidence here with

me. Aliyah I don’t know what to do. Connor

already knows that I’m pregnant.”

“And he knows that he couldn’t have been

responsible. Oh, dear God. What do you do

now?”

“I don’t know!”

“Listen, have you told Alex?”

Kendra chuckled. “I haven’t been picking any

of his calls at all. So,no.”

“You have to tell him,Kendra.”

“Are you kidding me? So both of them can

kill themselves?”

“Kendra, its not about that. He’s responsible

for this. He deserves to know. Tell

him,Kendra. It will be easy enough for you if

he’s backing you up. And it will be easy

when you finally state it as a reason for your

divorce.”

Kendra was calm. Her mind was working.

She sighed.

“Calm down. Anxiety isn’t good for a

pregnant woman. At least that one, I know

of.”

Aliyah said.

“Okay… okay. I’ll tell him. But it has to be in

person.”

“And you know you can’t give Connor the

impression that you already know about his

condition. Don’t say a word, just act neutral.”

“I know. Okay…Alright.”

She hung up and tried to calm down. With

shaky hands she put back all the papers,

even when some fell of again because she

was shaking. She tried to calm down and

shut the closet as it was, went to bed and

lay down, trying to get hold of herself.

It seemed like several hours had passed

before she found her strength and picked

her phone. The voice came after the third

ring.

“Hello,Kendra?”

Alex voice came in. She closed her eyes and

sighed. She had really missed him.

“Hello.”

He said again when she didn’t say anything.

“Alex. Hi.”

She said and heard him sigh.

“How are you doing?”.

” I’m fine. How are you?”

“I’m great. I hope you’re good,Kendra. I’ve

been worried about.you and you haven’t

been picking any of my calls.”

She paused and sighed. “Yes, I’m fine.”

“Okay.”

“Alex….I….we need to talk. I have to see you.”

“Alright.Is everything okay?”

“Yeah, everything is fine. There’s

something…that just came up that I would

like to tell you …in person.”

“Okay. When?”

“How about tonight? Are you busy?”

“What time tonight?”

“At 8.”

“No, I’m not busy at all.”

“I’ll come to your house.”

“Good. I’ll be expecting you.”

“Yeah, bye.”

“Kendra, wait….I love you.”

He said and she couldnt say anything. She

pulled herself together and hung up. Alex

loves her.

“I love you too.”

She said after she had hung up on him.

Few minutes later, the door opened and

Connor stepped in to the room. He leaned

against the wall and stared at her for a

while. She turned and looked at him. His

expression was unreadable and blank.

“How are you?”

He said. She shrugged.

“Good.”

“I ordered Chinese food just now. I wanted

us to have a little….romantic dinner tonight.

Are you up for it?”

She looked at him in surprise. He ordered

food for a romantic dinner? She couldn’t

believe it.

“To….Tonight? At what time?”

“At the usual time. 8.”

He said. She had thought to skip dinner and

lie about an appointment with Aliyah which

she wanted to talk to Aliyah about just so

she could run off to meet Alex. Was this man

listening to her conversation?.

“Oh.”

She said when she remembered the papers

in his closet and she nodded. Play

cool,Kendra.

“Sure. Its fine. I’m up for it.”

She said. and he nodded and left the room.

He hadn’t asked about the baby and she

was beginning to wonder if he had

something in mind.

The dinner was silent like they were having

a Wake. She looked up at him and he looked

up at her again.

Then he smiled and poured her a glass of

orange juice instead of wine.

“Thanks.”

She said.

“So, how was work today?”

“I didn’t go today.”

He looked up at her.

“Why?”

“Nothing. I just wanted to clean our room.”

He looked sharply at her. “Our room? I

thought that chore was for the maids?”

“Yes but then,Mary wasn’t feeling too well to

do it and Nina was busy with the kitchen. I

was just bored so I had to do it.”

“Ah, I see.” He sipped his wine. “So, how’s

the baby?”

Her heart skipped and she shifted on her

seat for composure.

“Good.”

She smiled up at him and downed her

whole glass to calm herself and he was

watching her.

“I wanted us to talk about our marriage.”

He said to her. She looked up at him. Was he

finally accepting the divorce?

“I want us to start over,Kendra. I…have been

giving it much thought today and I want to

start afresh with you and the baby.”

D--n it!

“Oh. Why the sudden change,Connor? You

know I don’t believe you.”

“I know and I deserve that for being cruel to

you. But I really want you back,Kendra. I’m

serious thus time. I want to have a good

family before the…child is born and I want to

have it with you.”

She swallowed another gulp of Juice. She

looked at him.

“I can’t divorce you,Kendra. I can’t lose you.

Believe it or not, you are the best thing that

has ever happened to me. And I want my

wife back.”

She looked down at her food. God, why?!

“I don’t know, Connor…”

“I’m not asking you to give me an answer

now. Think about it.”

She nodded. “I’ll think about it.”

She said. He smiled. Then she started felling

dizzy and drowsy. She excused herself to go

upstairs. She had barely gone half way up

when she felt warm between her legs and

she looked down and screamed in shock.

Connor ran up to her, asking what the

problem was.

Blood!

Thick blood!

They returned home the next day from the

hospital. But Kendra was broken. She could

still hear the voice of the doctor as he gave

her the diagnosis. “You miscarried, dear. It

seems like you had taken some strong

abortion pills.”

The doctor had told her. She felt like a dried

vegetable as Connor helped her up to the

bedroom. She sat on the bed stating into

space as he put away her clothes which she

had worn last night.

Abortion pills. She didn’t even know how

they looked like. How could she possibly

take abortion pills when she had always

wanted a baby.

“It was you,Connor. Wasn’t it?”

She said and he paused to look at her.

“What?”

“Don’t play innocent here. Because I am the

Victim! Not You!”

She snapped.

“Hey, calm down. You’re probably still in

shock.”

She chuckled and laughed.

“Shock? That word is an understatement

compared to what you’ve been putting me

through. Don’t pretend that you didn’t put

those pills my drink last night, because I

know you did. Because you couldnt stand

the fact that I got pregnant for someone

else. And you can never get me pregnant.”

He looked shocked at her.

“How can you…”

“No, Connor!”

She cut in. “How could you!?”

He said nothing.

“How could you be this wicked!”

She was screaming at him and she didn’t

care if he lost it and stabbed her right

now.After all he was bipolar.

“My baby. You killed my baby. What kind of a

man are you?”

“You still have to ask me?!”

He snapped back. “Yes I did it. What kind of

a man will feel happy to know that his wife

got pregnant by someone else when he

could never get her pregnant? I did

it,Kendra! Did you stop to think if my heart

while you were spreading your legs wide

for him?!”

“You don’t have a heart,Connor so don’t try

to feel deprived here. If you had a heart you

wouldn’t have made me.look like a barren

woman just to cover your tracks. So I

wouldn’t know that it was your fault. If you

had a heart you wouldn’t have killed an

unborn child pretending to want peace

from me.”

“I want peace, Kendra. And I know that if

you remained pregnant then you will use it

against me in court and leave me. I had to

do it. So, don’t think that you can do

anything to divorce me because I will never

give it to you.”

She screamed in rage and wept, crumbling

to the ground.

“You will rot in hell,Connor! I hate you! I hate

you!! Oh God please help me.!!”

She wept and he merely left her there and

walked out of the room…
