He and her V
Written by Oyebamiju Samuel Feathers
I walked back home sullenly. My heart was heavy. I do not want to believe that I’m barren. But what could be happening to my womb. I should have being pregnant.
On getting home ,I met Tucker sitting on couch outside the house.
He stood up as soon as he saw me ” Camilla ,what’s wrong!” He asked and I find a sit for myself first.
I lowered my head and exhaled.
“Tell me what’s wrong?” He asked again.
“I found out I’m not pregnant. ”
He was quiet for a while after which he sniffed.
He hummed and I looked into his face. ” All is going to be fine”
“Does that mean I’m barren?” I asked with a teary face.
“Barren! Never. We just started making love few weeks ago. Common! You are sure going to get pregnant ” He encouraged me but I wasn’t moved.
“Did you think I should go for text to inquire if anything is wrong with my womb?”
“I do not think that is necessary , common! Let’s just give it time ” He said .
“I’m scared. Barrenness is real. Let me confirm if I’m truly barren so I can start sourcing for solution already” I said still looking at his face intently.
He sighed. “Alright then ,if that’s what you want ”
“Thanks ” I said and decided to go for text the following day.
I went to the the hospital that Tucker uses to see the Doctor that attends to Tucker and his siblings. Including Camilla and I.
“Hi Doctor ” I greeted and he gestured for me to sit.
“Welcome Mrs Grace ”
“Thank you” I said and dipped my hand inside my hand bag and brought bails of money.
I dropped it on his table.
“I overheard Camilla saying she’s coming to text what exactly has gone wrong with her womb , just tell her that she has no womb”
“Ma?” The doctor yelled.
“Calm down ,check the money and agree. ” I said and he lowered his head to the money on the table and counted it.
“Wow! But that will be….”
“Shhhhh…” I shut him. “Just do as I’ve said. ”
He nodded. I smirked and walked away from him.
