What was I doing at Eve’s wedding in the first place, what that bitch Matilda was doing there does not surprise me at all. I could not believe these trios betrayed our friendship, and still stick together like glue.
I was deep in thought when mum entered asking about the wedding and the fact that since I decided to keep the baby, I must as well start attending antenatal.
Mum is that necessary, you know I have to resume work and I might not have the time to go in and out of the hospital. Listen to yourself woman; you think this was how I brought you into this world.
You had better get yourself out to the St Joseph hospital tomorrow; I booked an appointment for Sundays. Because I know, you will fight with me over the working days, okay mum I will, so tell me who the father is and do not lie.
Mum, not you too, she smacked my back lightly and walked out. She knows am not going to tell until am ready, Mom I called! Can we talk about the other day? You said some things I want you to clarify. Kate, I would be very glad if we do not discuss this.
Mom why? You keep shutting me out. Kate am not, whatever I said the other day has nothing to do with you. So I don’t see the reason I should be discussing with you. But I thought we have no secrets mom. Why do you all keep breaking my heart one after the other?
Come here my dear, she pulled me into her arms for a while. Look, I love you and whatever I have to do to stop those pictures from getting out there I will. I just nodded because I know she was trying to take my mind of the questions.
I called my triangle of friends and we spoke for a long time. Drake even volunteered to take me to the hospital but I declined.
I walked into the hospital as early as 9am, waited for a while and then I heard the nurse mention my name, I followed her inside, and our eyes met.
Nurse, let me have the folder, he was acting professionally. He looked at the folder, glanced through and asked me to have a seat.
I hesitated for a while but the nurse was standing there so I did not want to cause trouble. I pulled the chair and sat down. Miss Santa, right have far are you.
I took another glance at him, and nodded my head, not to anything in particular. He then flashed his hand to the nurse, and I saw her leaving.
How do you feel Miss Santa, how far are you? Look drop the act, that folder should tell you all you needed to know.
Do not use this opportunity to try mingling with me; you know I do not like you. You do not either; I think I need another doctor. Okay, I will ask my other colleagues if they are willing to work on Sundays, because am the only doctor that works on Sundays. You opt for a weekday probably you can get another doctor fixed for you.
By the way, I met your Dad over lunch regarding the pictures, he assured me he took care of whoever kept sending them and he is sure there are no copies out there. Except the ones he has right, I retorted back.
Nectar kept scratching his head, with that I could not convince him to destroy it. He was so adamant on keeping it, but I promise the worse is over. And why didn’t you tell him, you were the dude who took advantage of his daughter and was so childish to let it get to the open.
Kate don’t talk like that, am sorry that happened, but am looking into the hotel where we slept at. You slept at not me. I said eyeing him.
You do not even have the decency to take me to a better hotel. Upon all the work you do here, are you that broke to settle for a mushroom hotel? You had better make this go away or else I will never forgive you.
My sister is a lawyer; she also looked into it with her confidential Informant. Look am not here to discuss your family with you, am glad you were man enough to get that sorted out and thank you. I said rudely and said goodbye.
In that case help me tell the nurse to bring in the next patient, do I look like an errand girl? I was about to walk out when his next question nearly sent me to an early grave.
Is that child mine? Kate am asking you a question. He spoke for the fifth time before I regained my composure. Who are you, what makes you think you are responsible, I tried to convince.
The timing in the folder, Look I slept with you once does not mean you can father a child, I told nectar so sternly without blinking my eyes.
Leave me alone, am sure you have other innocent women you took advantage of, find them. One of them might be pregnant with your child, but certainly not me.
He slumped into his chair, as if he was expecting the child to be his. I thought the things I said will offend him but he was not. Good day, Miss Santa, if you do change your mind, give me a call.
I went home, feeling bad and blaming my mum, she knew nectar was the doctor at that hospital. Well I will not blame her, if she knew and did this on purpose. Was about to take a nap, when my phone beeped. It was a WhatsApp message from an unknown number.
It was a pleasure meeting you today; I would like to be your doctor.
What is wrong with this person, I said silently, I texted back with insults. We were at each other’s throat until I slept off finally. The next day, I was not so sure if I was ready for work but I had to.
Could not sit around like a pregnant doll, though a few things were about to change especially when my baby starts growing but I realized I am so strong to overcome every obstacle.
I was driving to work, when my phone rang.
