I couldn’t decide on anything to do concerning Comfort’s pregnancy nor was i able to tell my wife about it.
Slowly two weeks passed by without Comfort showing up to disturb me, a development that made me very scared at first but when the third week equally passed without her showing up, I felt perhaps she had changed her mind towards using the pregnancy to hold me down.
The second week of December slowly arrived, making it a month i last saw Comfort. I couldn’t imagine where she was or what she was planning and i equally held myself from calling her on phone. My wife unfortunately was still yet to get pregnant and this time around was overly worried because according to her, she was scared of meeting my parents during the coming Christmas without anything to show for our marriage.
However On Tuesday morning, in the second week of December, Comfort surprisingly showed up at my office looking very serious and cold. I was shocked to see her but tried my best to maintain my composure.
“so how far sir?. What plans have you made for me?” she asked seriously as she sat before me.
“plans?” i repeated slowly.
“yes of course. I stayed away for a month in order to give you time to organise yourself and make preparations for me. Are you trying to tell me you did nothing?” she asked while i speechlessly stared at her.
“i’ll be going for my NYSC next march, and i’m planning to serve in this state due to my condition, so i really don’t understand you. Anyway i guess i will do everything my own way, since you are not ready to make it easy for us” she poured out, stood up and left without another word while I bit my lips nervously as i wondered what she had up in her mind.
There wasn’t any doubt she had something well planned out. I tried thinking of what she could do as she threatened but nothing came to my mind.
I however soon found out what her threat was all about later that evening when she surprisingly showed up at my house by 7pm in the evening when my wife and I was having dinner. I couldn’t believe my eyes as i saw her walk into my sitting room after my surprised wife answered the door bell. She slowly settled down on my couch, gave my wife a long look before leaving her eyes on me as i abandoned my meal and nervously drew close to her.
“i’m sorry for coming so late and i also apologise in advance for the shocking news i bear. Thanks for not asking too much questions before letting me in” she said with a cold smile to my wife who was absolutely shocked and confused with her boldness…
