Wemmy got a call from Thessy, she needed some advice from her.
“Hi sweetheart, how is you?”(In Jennifer’s voice)
“I’m good” she replied smiling. How’s work and family?”
“Fine, we bless God”
“Wemmy I met someone”
“Some…one as in a guy?
“Something like that”
“Thank God I’m so happy” she said jumping over the phone.
“Hold on and let me explain”
“Explanation! OK I’m all ears”
“I met this man through my uncle but….
“Thessy what’s the but again fa?”
“He’s a widower”
“Wow! That’s a but”
“He likes me a lot, in fact he approached my Uncle and told him how he felt about me”
“And what did your Uncle say?”
“He told him he has his blessings once I agree to it”
“That means he’s a good person since Uncle gave his consent”
“Sincerely he’s a good man”
“Ok tell me about him”
“He is a member of the house of representative, He is 36 years old. He’s a renowned business man, he’s into Real estate and Building. He also has a little daughter from his late wife.
“ Really! he’s seven years older than you, that is still OK, I know you love children so his daughter should not be a problem. Let’s leave the but for now, he is still young we cant expect him not to remarry”
“So what’s your take on it?”
“Do you love him?”
“I like him”
“Like is good, like do turn to love eventually, all we need now is God’s leading, so let’s start praying about it”
“What do I tell him now?”
“Tell him to give you time to think about it”
“Thank you so much Wemmy, I’m proud to have you as a friend”
“Talk to you later, regards to your hubby”
“I will Bye, love you”
“Love you too”
Wemmy ended the call and his husband walk up to her.
“Yes, she sent her regards”
“So what’s the gist this time?”
“I thought it’s only girls that do gossips, but its like guys too have joined the league”
“Why did I even ask, you’ll still tell me eventually”
“No Pillow talk this time, Sorry to disappoint you. This is between my friend and I” she said with her tongue out”
“I know you will tell me before we sleep this night”
They went into the kitchen to prepare dinner, Wemmy did the cooking while her husband kept her company. They ate dinner and retired to bed.
“Good night sweetheart”
“Good night baby” he replied. He drew her closer, kissed her forehead and laid her head on his chest.
“Thessy met someone” she spilled it.
“I said it, didn’t I?” he said laughing. I know I will hear the gist before I sleep”
“Oooo, this my mouth. Why is it so difficult to keep something from you sef” She hissed.
“You’ve drop the headline already, so let’s have the full gist” he said still laughing.
“Stop laughing jo, what’s so funny” She said throwing pillows at him. Then the pillow fight started, with Wemmy giggling.
You are just too playful, remember you are going to work tomorrow, you better sleep” He said trying to stop her from throwing more pillows. He got hold of her hands and place her on the bed
“ Leave me jo”
“ OK, you win” He said and kissed her, she returned the kiss.
The pillow fight eventually ends with love making.
Thessy got a call from his ex, he still wanted her back in his life, He was still finding it difficult to move on without Thessy in his life.
“Hi Thess, how are you doing it’s being a while”
“I’m fine and to what do I owe this call?”
“I’m just checking on you”
“Will you please quit this melodrama of yours. Who are you checking on?”
“Tess what can I do for you to forgive me?”
“How about jumping off a cliff”
“Has it come to that?”
“Tony please I’m in a middle of something, I don’t have time for this”
“Thessy I still care about you, let start all over again”
She hissed. “You are despicable” She ended the call.
She slammed her phone on the bed and returned back to her dressing table to put finishing touches on her make up she has a date with her suitor.
“I FELL IN LOVE!”
Wemmy noticed her husband was not in a good mood, She noticed he was absent minded despite the fact that they were seeing an interesting tv programme. He’s the cheerful type, so it was so obvious that something is eating him up.
“Feranmi….where exactly are you, because it’s obvious your mind is not here?”
“We are rounding up on site this week, the project has been completed. The building will be commissioned next week”
“That should be a good news”
“It is, it’s just that the company has no other contract for now”
“So what happens next?”
“The site supervisor said we should pray we get another contract soon”
“What happens if there is no contract for now?”
“Everyone will be laid off, they only call the workers back when another contract shows up”
“Really! Please take your mind off that, all will be well”
“Wemimo I need a potential job, all my efforts to get one proofs abortive”
Let’s just continue to trust God, he will provide one, so please cheer up”
Wemmy made him see an interesting movie, just to divert his attention. It worked a bit.
Feranmi has been trying to wake his wife up for like 30min now but to no avail.
“Wemmy! Get up it’s 6am already, you have to prepare for work or you’ll be late”
She got out of bed reluctantly, knelt beside the bed while Feranmi led them in prayer and she dozed off again While he was still praying. He had to wake her up when he finished praying without her participating in the devotion.
“Wemmy! prayer is over, go and take your bath, I’ll help with the house chores while you are at it” he said and left the bedroom.
Wemmy drag herself to the bathroom, she took her bath and return to the room. She laid on the bed again without dressing up and slept off again.
Feranmi came into the room surprised to meet her sleeping again.
“What in God’s name is going on here? Wemmy! He tapped her. Are you Ok” he asked, touching her forehead with the back of his palm to feel her temperature.
“I’m not feeling too well sweetheart, I’ll call in sick at the office”
“Then you should go to the hospital, I’ll drop you off”
“No need for that I’ll just get anti malaria in a nearby pharmacy”
“I’m not in support of self medication, let me take you to the hospital”
“Doctor Feranmi, it’s just malaria”
“You can’t be so sure, you wake up late this days and you are not that active which is just so unlike you”
“And what is that suppose to mean, doctor husband?”
“I don’t know if u noticed, but you are two weeks late”
Now her eyes were wide open, she jumped out of bed and rush to her phone to check the calendar and did some mental calculation.
“OMG you are right I’m two weeks late”
Wemmy never cared about her menstral cycle’s dates like some females do, her menstral cramp two days before her cycle begins is enough reminder.
“God I can’t be pregnant” she said to herself
“Baby! He called out, interrupting her thought. I know your fears but you don’t have to be scared, if that’s how God want it, then there’s nothing we can do about it”
“ But I’m on contraceptives” she said
“We did not use protection on the night of your birthday, it was after that night that you started using contraceptives” he replied.
“That’s true, but I’m not vomiting”
“ Wemmy! Symptoms differs, moreover we are not sure, maybe its just fever like you said. Let’s just go to the hospital to see a doctor”
“Won’t you go to work?”
“I’ll call to let them know I will be coming in late, moreover we don’t really have much to do on site”
They left for the hospital later in the morning. The doctor referred them to the hospital laboratory where she had a widal and pregnancy test.
