Read Story: SEASON 2 EPISODE 14
hey what’s going on?” i asked fearfully, holding Comfort with great care.
“i don’t just know. I suddenly feel sick and awful” she answered weakly, throwing up once again.
“oh dear lord save me” i prayed, clueless on what next to do as i watched over her.
“don’t be scared. It isn’t the first time this is happening to me. I will be fine. Tomorrow you will help take me to a hospital. Just hold my hand tightly” she begged.
I had no choice than to sit with her all through the rest of the night. I just couldn’t believe all that was happening were real. I just couldn’t wait to wake up from the terrible nightmare.
Early the next day we headed to a hospital Comfort begged me to take her to. A private clinic located at the center of the town. In no time a very young doctor examined her, ran some tests and invited me to his office.
“your wife immune system is very weak. The blood in her body is equally very low. She told me herself that she’s been taking some medications before moving in to live with you. I have written out a new set of drugs for her. I will also instruct her on how to take them. However the most important thing is her life first before the baby and she really needs lots of care, good food and constant medical check up. She also has to register for Ante-natal here. I would have advised you leave her behind in my clinic but the bill will be very high because she still has some months to go before putting to bed. So take her home, make sure you get someone to assist her with house chores, if possible invite her mother and also remember to bring her here at least three times every month for check up” he said to me.
“she isn’t my wife. Doctor no” i stammered without thinking straight. The doctor gave me a very curious look.
“what?, then who is she to you?” he asked. I instantly regained my senses.
“never mind doctor. She will be well looked after” i said halfheartedly, got up, left his office and went outside to call my mother, almost crying as i narrated everything to the old lady.
The painful part of it all was that i was being left with no choice than to take care of the obnoxious girl without the knowledge of my wife, which really was a big disaster waiting to happen.
“that’s terrible news son, but are you sure the girl and the doctor aren’t trying to play smart on you?” my mother asked, putting the idea into my head but i quickly shook it off.
“i doubt it mum. I saw her vomit with my own eyes and i don’t think she’s faking it” i answered.
“fine take her home. I will be in the city early tomorrow. I’m coming to stay with you and see things for myself” she promised, leaving a strong joy in my heart.
I finally paid the hospital bills and took the sick girl home. As i drove into the compound that late afternoon, i spotted my mother in law’s car parked in front of the house which left me shocked and surprised. I quickly stopped my car and made to reverse and drive away but unfortunately the old woman emerged from the house that very moment with my wife’s bag on her hand. She froze with shock on sighting Comfort and I.
