Have you ever looked at the people in your life and wondered why God put them in your life. Francis was the best thing that had happened to me, when I first met him it was a mixture of vanilla and chocolate ice cream.
Seeing him turn into a monster really disturbed my life, how could the man I thought I would spend the rest of my life with treat me like this considering the fact that I was carrying his little one inside me. Could it be that I caused Francis to be who he is now with my numerous escapees. A lot of thoughts were running through my mind. I wanted to tell Francis that I was carrying his child but I thought of the implications it could cause.
The driver was cruising like he was in the fast and furious movie starring along side the late Paul Walker. I begged them to stop and let me out but Francis couldn’t listen to me. When we got to Francis’s flat he paid the cab driver and told him not to mention a thing to a soul. He lifted me up and took me inside. I was feeling so much pain in the back, my abdomen and tummy. I asked him to take me to the nearest hospital, he looked at me and laughed his lungs out.
Francis; do you honestly think I would risk my life and take you to the hospital?
Me; Francis I beg you in the name of God, please take me to the hospital, I need to be attended to by a medical personnel.
Francis; I know you are trying to out smart me but am so clever than you think.
Me; am in so much pain, I cannot handle it.
Francis; what pain can’t you handle when you go round fucking older men with shrinking balls.
Me; I have never gone round fucking old men with sagging balls. I have only loved and been with only one man and that’s you.
Francis; why is it so hard for you to agree about your whoring. This is what gets me mad, it really pains me that you cheat, deny and wanna appear all innocent.
Me; baby please the people that you see me with are Lulu’s friends.
Francis; Lulu! Lulu! Lulu! All the time it’s Lulu! Why do you always wanna blame someone else for your stupidity?
Me; baby Lulu has so many friends, she has introduced me to all of them and them knowing am her friend, every time I meet them,they always say hi and the likes.
Francis; so you are telling me that if Lulu tells you to fart,you fart right?
Me; its not like that baby.
Francis; then what?
Me; they are my friend’s friend which makes them my friends.
Francis; so your friend’s friends are automatically your friends?
Me; not really but they are my friends.
Francis; Mwila when will you ever learn to take responsibility for your own actions.
Me; when I ever do something that requires me to do that?
Francis; you are sick in the head.
Me; you are equally sick, it takes two.
Francis; are you saying am mad.
Me; yes!!! Didn’t you accuse me of being insane but it hurts you that am hitting it right back at you.
Francis; let me show you how mad I’m.
Me; I think I have seen all the madness that you posses, if you want to show me your madness please show case something new.
Francis; hahahahahahaha you are crazier than I thought.
Me; am tired of you and everything about you. Just let me go.
Francis; if I let you go,you will go to the police and report me.
Me; I would never do such a thing , how many times have you beaten me? Have I ever reported you to the police?
Francis; I dont know maybe you have.
Me; I didn’t know you are this foolish!!!!!!! If I had reported you, don’t you think you would have been arrested already for the beatings I receive from you time to time. Just release me, am not feeling well.
Francis; for calling me foolish, I will deal with you until you call upon your ancestors.
Me; fuck off you son of a man whore.
I thought Francis was just playing when he said that until he grabbed my legs, pulled me to the kitchen. He moved me in the corner and got a knife. I was scared for my life. I didn’t want the little one in me to get hurt by his possibly psycho father. Francis hit me on my my head, everything went blur, I was begging him to stop. The last thing I heard him say was “you are complaining of the pain in your tummy and abdomen”, let me hit you more so that your tummy and abdomen can pain more. The pain was unbearable to take and everything went black.
I woke up in Levy Mwanawasa hospital next to Lulu who looked pale and disturbed. I asked her what had happened and how I find myself on the hospital bed? When she heard me talk she moved closer to me and held me. She told me to calm down, she went out and came back with a nurse who checked my temperature and BP, minutes later the doctor came in. He told me that I was lucky to have survived, I wanted to get out of the bed but I was weak.
“Doctor how is my baby doing”, please do whatever you can do to save my baby. Lulu sobbed upon hearing me utter those words. I held on to my tummy and said a short prayer, I don’t know what happened but I started experiencing seizures. .
