I became so confused as I saw both of them.
“Who are you?” They asked themselves again.
I gulped nervously.
“Am his wife to be and the mother of his unborn baby” Stephanie said as my eyes widened in shock.
“Unborn baby?” I asked in surprise
“Yes honey… This is the test results” She smiled as I took the paper from her.
My jaw dropped and my gaze went straight to Amaya.
Hot tears dropped down her cheeks.
She quickly looked away and wiped her tears off.
“Amaya! I can… Please hear me out….” I said as I held her hand but she slapped my hand off.
“You… You are… Having a…a baby?” Amaya asked in tears.
“Of course… I know he is a baby boy” Stephanie chuckled
I felt the ground should open and swallow me up.
Amaya’s tears broke my heart the most.
“Congratulations…” Amaya managed to say as she ran back to the sea shore and entered the boat.
She paddled as fast as she can away from sight.
My heart shattered into pieces as she paddled away from me.
I turned to happy Stephanie and rolled my eyes.
“You are soon going to be a dad Alex” She said excitedly
“You are so devilish….” I said as I pushed her aside and walked away.
She quickly followed me.
“What’s the matter with you Alexander? You should be happy that your child lives in me” She screamed
“You better get rid of that thing… It’s not mine” I said walking straight to my car
“You animal.. How dare you ask me to abort my child?” She asked in tears.
“I can’t marry you Stephanie… I don’t love you” I yelled
“But you love your child don’t you?” She asked
“Of course! I can’t marry you Stephanie” I said as I hopped into my car and started the engines.
“You are crazy” She screamed as I drove off leaving her behind.
she entered her car and drove with me.
I can’t live without her…
I cannot do it.
Why did Stephanie have to get pregnant?
I hit the car sterling in anger.
I watched from my mirror and saw how she’s driving beside me.
I quickly reversed my car and she lost me.
I can’t cope with her right now.
Mrs Smith’s Pov:
“Oh my gosh! Am so excited… I can’t wait to be a grandma” I danced excitedly.
“Me too aunt! I can’t wait to have a baby” Stephanie smiled.
“This is really good! Have you told Alexander?” Nina asked
“Yes! But as usual he just didn’t say anything” Stephanie said
“Who cares about what he thinks… All I know is that the wedding will be happening soon” I rejoiced
“But mom! I don’t think Alexander will like this” Nina added as I flinched.
“Who cares?” Stephanie and I chorused.
And burst into laughter.
Nina scratched her hair in confusion.
She probably don’t know who to side with…
Six hours later.. 🕒
I kept walking up and down restlessly in the sitting room.
“What’s keeping Alexander?” I asked myself.
That son of mine is so hot headed.
I yawned sleepily.
I sat on the couch and dozed off.
I opened my weak eyes as the door was banged open noisily and my drunk son walked in.
He reeked of alcohol.
“Where are you coming from Alex?” I asked him as he staggeredly stool at a place still shaking.
“I hate her… I hate Stephanie! She made my Amaya leave me” He belched loudly.
“She’s pregnant” I said
“Damn it! I just despise that fact … I can only take responsibility for my child and not marry her” He snorted.
“What? No way!” I yelled as he sighed and walked upstairs.
I kept calling him but he paid a deaf ear to me.
It was already morning…
I walked into Alexander’s room.
To my greatest surprise, he was drinking.
“Alex! Stop it!!” I screamed as I snatched the bottle and glass from him.
“Nina I don’t love her one bit” He yelled
“I know Alexander but she’s pregnant” I said
“I won’t marry her at all Nina” He coughed slightly.
“You don’t have any choice” I said as he broke into tears
“What about Amaya?” He asked in tears.
I tried talking but I couldn’t.
I was short of words.
I quickly hugged him tightly.
I woke up so excited.
He’s never going to slip away from my fingers.
I have his baby in my womb..
I laughed heartily.
I quickly picked up my towel and walked into the bathroom.
I was about to enter the 🛁 bathtub when I slipped and fell heavily.
“Aww… Ouch!” I cried in pain.
The next thing I saw was blood….

Tears streamed down my cheeks as Sonia helped me sit on the bed.
“Sonia…. He’s gone!” Was all I could say as I bit my lip in pain.
“Calm down Steph” She said as I shook my head in disagreement.
“I can’t…” I sighed loudly as I picked up my cell phone.
“What are you doing?” Sonia asked anxiously
“I want to let them know that I had a miscarriage” I said as she quickly snatched the phone from me.
“What the…. Hell no!” She screamed at me as I stared at her in surprise.
“What do you want me to do then?” I said as tears rolled down my cheeks again.
“How can you even think of calling them? Are you ready to lose your Alexander?” She asked as I shook my head.
“I don’t want to… I don’t even think I can bear it but what happened has happened” I said as I moped my face with a handkerchief.
“Wise up girl… Will they find out you had a miscarriage without you telling them or without me telling them?” Sonia said as I scratched my head in confusion.
“What are you insinuating?” I asked
“You can’t let the Smith’s know that you lost the baby” Sonia said as I gasped.
“What? How is that even possible?” I half yelled
“You don’t have to tell them anything… Just do the right thing” Sonia eyed me and I laughed heartily.
“Cheers…” We said and jammed our glasses.
This is the best thing to do.
I laughed excitedly as I picked it up.
I’ll have to be wearing this to have a big tummy.
It’s actually a fake stomach.
After nine months, I will go to the hospital for my son.
I still have you wrapped around my finger Alexander.
I burst into laughter.
I stared directly at his picture.
Tears circulated in my eyes and rolled down gradually.
“Am his wife to be and mother of his unborn baby” those words kept echoing in my ears.
How could he do that to me.
“Amaya… What happened?” I heard Lucy’s voice from behind.
I quickly hid his picture in my gown’s pocket and wiped my tears off immediately.
“it’s nothing” I lied as she sat on a log of wood beside me.
“I know he broke your heart” She said as tears began to rush down my face again.
I tried blinking it back but I couldn’t just do it.
“Lucy…” I called in tears.
“Am listening” She replied
“is love this painful?” I asked anxiously
“Sometimes it is my dear sister” Lucy said
“Have you ever fallen in love?” I asked
“Yes Amaya but it ended up painful as well” Lucy said
“So it’s always painful” I shook my head.
“Not always… If I were you sister I will fight for what is truly mine” Lucy said as I exhaled deeply.
I can’t give up just yet…
Mrs Smith’s Pov:
I prepared a glass of smoothie and headed straight to the sitting room.
“Here you go Steph” I said as I handed the glass to her.
“Thank you so much mother” She smiled
“You are welcome dear… Anything for my grandson” i rejoiced.
I rolled my eyes..
“The wedding plans mom, is Alexander making any efforts on that?” She asked
“Don’t bother your pretty self my dear… I have everything taken care of” I smiled
She smiled broadly as she sipped her drink
If she’s angry with me, then of what use is my miserable life?
I shook my head in sadness.
For the past two weeks, I haven’t even gone to the office.
I quickly picked up a tablet.
I removed 10 pills from the tablet.
Am ending it all today.
I quickly picked up a glass of water and drank from it.
I was about to take the pills when my cell phone rang….
