AFFLICTED

Before Obiajulum was born Ocheole had had several miscarriages, even countless times being almost taken to the world beyond. She suffered for many years, having no child to call her own, and even bore quite a number of names given to her by the villagers, for not bearing her husband a child.

It was until the day Obiajulum was born, that she was fully recognized. The seed which she had bore, brought great joy and had her tears being wiped away. And now that her seed—her first fruit—was to be taken away, she wouldn’t be able to bear the thought of having him no more. Oh, how the earth would mock me again—thought Ocheole with a rigid smile. She looked at her husband, and then the man seated at her front, and said, “Please, doctor,” she made to kneel, “Do something so my child may be whole.” from a mothers’ heart came aching pleas; misty eyes freeing tears as aging knees kissed the coarse floor.

“I understand perfectly how you feel, ma’am, but there isn’t really anything I can do.”

The poor woman swallowed, hearing him say.

Seeing the expression on her face, Ozoemena clung to his wife, helping her up. “You’ve heard, mama Aju,” he said, “Come let us go.”

The pained, feeble mind followed him, having nothing more to say.
