Read Story: SEASON 2 EPISODE 9

I do not think you have anything to explain to me. This is not happening. How can I have a child in the same womb with another man’s own at the same time? Does that make any sense to you? I asked the doctor.

I raged so much without allowing the doctor to explain.

My wife was still crying.

I felt pity for her, so I put my hand across her shoulder.

“Darling don’t mind these people. This is how they go about causing problems for people, destroying people’s homes. I know them. These people are evil.”

“Mr. Ezekiel please calm down. I am…”

“Calm down?” I interrupted. “Did I hear you say I should calm down? Do you know what you are about to do to my marriage? Ok, it’s like you don’t know. Well, let me tell you. You are about to tear my family… in fact, you have just succeeded in tearing my family apart. Thank you.”

“No Sir. I am not the one who conducted the test. My duty is to read the result as it is. Please sit down. There is an explanation for this.”

“I will rather stand. I will hear you loud and clear,” I objected.

“No Sir. Please sit down. Stay calm and sit down.”

With severe anger in my heart, I sat reluctantly.

“Thank you. Please take a deep breath. Breath in and out heavily.”

I looked at him in disgust and wished I should strangle him to death.

“You are yet to breathe as instructed Sir.”

Reluctantly, I obeyed the doctor and breathed in and out as he instructed.

“Thank you Sir,” the doctor commended. “The truth is, I have served as a medical doctor for twenty seven years now, and I must say that I have never come across something like this. But I have…”

“You see? So why do you want to hang me on the stake?” I protested.

“Hear me out please,” said the doctor. “Like I was saying, I have heard about this phenomenon countless times. It has been proven medically. Now let me explain in details.”

With that, everywhere became very quiet, but deep down me, I was still boiling with anger.

“The situation at hand is very simple to understand,” the doctor continued. “Let me start it this way. I am glad your wife is here. First, this case is known as HETEROPATERNAL SUPERFECUNDATION.”

“Hetero what?” I asked.


Superfecundation. This happens when two of a woman’s eggs are fertilized by sperm from two different men. Each month, a woman ovulates and releases an egg. If a viable sperm reaches the egg, the egg will be fertilized. After fertilization, the egg, now known as Zygotes, divide through a process known as mitosis. That is when you will have identical twins. But sometimes, a woman releases two eggs within the same ovulation, and if the two eggs are fertilized, that is when you will have fraternal twins.”

“I know about all these, doctor. So where do I come in as one of the fathers”? I asked.

“Now, in your own case. The mother of these kids ovulated twice within the month that those eggs were fertilized. This means that the time she met the first man was when the first egg was fertilized. Then she released the second egg within the same cycle and met with the second man, she got the second egg fertilized again. Then one of the eggs underwent mitosis, resulting in the two boys. The other egg resulted in the girl. In summary, the mother released two different eggs at two different times during the same cycle, she met two different men on two different occasions. And the result is what we have gotten here. I think the woman in question will have enough to tell you.”

I turned to my wife and could see tears from her eyes. She had been crying all through.

“Conclusively,” the doctor continued, “you are the father to the girl. The other two boys belong to another man.

“Doctor, you mean my husband cheated on me with this woman?” my wife asked in total disbelief.

“I’m afraid, that is the truth madam.”

“What is the truth, doctor? What is the truth? When did this happen?”

My wife stood up and walk out of the office crying.

I was unable to move as I was left in shock.

‘When did this happen?’ I muttered.

It was only the doctor and I in the office.

“Just go and talk to the mother. She has the answers to all your questions. Now I have to attend to other patients. I wish you good luck,” the doctor concluded.

I got up, and with feeble knees, I left the office.

When I got outside, I brought out my phone in an attempt to call Enobong.

Out of that state of confusion, I ended up calling my wife.

“What is it? What is it? You he goat, you have disgraced me. What have I not done for…?”

I hung up the call as she began to cry over the phone.

I called Enobong.

“Hello! How did it go?” she asked as she answered the call.

“Who are you?”

“I don’t understand. It’s me Enobong. What is the problem? Why are you sounding like that?”

“You better start talking before I lose my temper. In fact, wait for me, I am coming over to the house immediately,” I hung up.

I got to her place and she was already restless.

If she had known what I was in to, she would have started talking even before I got to her place.

“What is the problem, Sir? she asked.

“Who are you? Why do you choose to pay me back with the other side of the coin? What have I done?”

“I don’t understand. What is the problem? What did the doctor say?”

“The doctor said I am the father to the girl.”

“That is not possible. It can never be. Something is wrong. How can you be the father? When did you….?”

“That is the problem,” I interrupted. “I cannot even comprehend the whole thing. How did we even meet? What is all these?”

“I suspect something,” Enobong said.

“What is that?”

“I do not mean to disrespect. But I do not trust your wife in this case. She must have had a hand in that test. Forget whatever crab the doctor told you. Why can you father my girl but cannot father the other two. Not possible. I have never heard anything like this before. So this means that you will be divorced because of me? This is funny. I will not let that happen. I must get to the root of this. If your wife wants to go, fine, let her go, but she should not use me as a bait. I am too big for that. We are going to do another test.”

“What? Another test?”

“Yes. We will conduct another test for Enobong only. Keep your own result, I don’t want to see it for now. When I am done with the test, I will need your test result. I will call someone to help me run the test. Nonsense result.”

My heart was racing and my Blood Pressure was very high.

“So what will you now do?” I asked.

“Don’t worry. I have a doctor friend. She has a private clinic. She will help me with this. I cannot let this happen to you, not after all you did for us. Never.”
