A MONTH LATER,
Lectures were over for the day but some of the Physics student remained in the department.Some were charging their phones,gisting or eating.
Aishat entered the class with a bottle of Zobo and Eggbuns.She hid it beside her as she doesn’t want those troublesome guys to taste out of it but she was detected.She sat at the front of the class eating quietly.
“Alhaja!”Emmanuel called from the back.Aishat smiled and looked at the back.
“Ah..My mouth must taste that”Seun got up running to the front.
“Can’t you guys leave her alone?”Jake said without gazing at them.He was busy with his laptop.
“Leave them..Especially that seun..Na kari’ka chop”Felicity said haughtily.
The students bursts into laughter.
The door opened again,Deji and Taiwo entered sweating profusely.”Ah!Ah!..Did you guys have a f–k?”Kaffy teased.
“Yeah..We f—-d you..Two in one”Taiwo replied.
“God forbid!”Kaffy snapped back.
“Jake..We didn’t get that thing at secretariat.We just had to go into Dusting Market”Deji said as he sat down rummaging through his bag.
“I saw your wife”Taiwo said.Jake turned to him”Where?”he asked.
“She was parking her car at the UCH”Taiwo replied.
“Ohh..Okay”Jake said turning back.
His phone buzzed.It was Angela calling.He stood up and went outside to receive it.
“Hello baby”He said.
“Hi dear”Angela replied.
“What’s wrong?..You sound dull”He said.
“I’m pregnant”Angela said.
“Oh..y..y..ou are pregnant”Jake stuttered.
“Yes..i’m..I have told my parents and they want to see you”Angela affirmed.
“Okay..Let’s talk later”Jake said.
“Alright..coming to your place this evening’Angela said.
“Bye baby”Jake said and disengaged the call.
His heart raced faster,he was scared.What would he tell his parents?,Especially his stern Father.He doesn’t wish to argue with his Father as they had done in the past.His father was a-no nonsense man and he a very tough human.They had fights that ended up in physical combat and all thanks to Grandma who settled it.He looked away.
Jemimah sat on the bed pondering if she came to the world to suffer.David was still the same,Ever tormenting and Brutal as usual.If Nude,her body might be mistaken for a Zebra’s with the lots of whippings from her husband.She knew no one to confide in.David allowed her not to work or go out again.He employed waiters and waitresses to give her whatever she needs.Her Marriage could have been a happy one if her husband was not animalistic in nature.She thought for a while and picked her phone.She logged into her facebook messenger and checked if Eniola was online.She was.Jemimah called her through messenger.Eniol
a wasted no time in picking up her friends call.
“Ore mi..ore mi”Eniola said.
“Baby mi..How are you?”Jemimah said.
“We are where you left us o..Gbogbo switzerland nko?”Eniola said sarcastically which made Jemimah laugh.
“Switzerland fine o..Only we are suffering”Jemim
“Ore..I have gotten married to a beast”Jemimah said.
“Wait..i’m coming”Jemimah said.She opened her nightie and took a snapshot of her chest,laps and her face sent it to Eniola.
“He beats me during sex and after it..He has never for once made me happy that i married him”Jemimah said in a tearful voice.
“Jemmy..Abeg..Dey come back to Naija oo”Enny said.
“I would have but he has hidden my passport”Jemimah said.
“See drug him..Find your way ni tie”Eniola said.
The door opened and David rushed in.He had heard the conversation.Unknown to Jemimah,David had all his rooms communication connected together so he could listen to everything that’s being said.His previous workers knew this and so never ventured to speak about him,when he wasn’t there.
David started punching Jemimah hard.Eniola heard the noises and struggles on the phone.She was scared and called christianah immediately.David continued to beat Jemimah till she miscarriaged.David stopped.He didn’t know his wife was a month and 5 days pregnant.Jemimah wept hard over the loss of the baby,then she fainted.”Shammah!!!!”David shouted,calling the driver”Sir!!”The man said rushing in.”Carry her and drive to stellenbaussus hospital..I’ll be there shortly”.The man carried Jemimah and drove fast out the gate.
David knew he was done for as jemimah would tell what happened at the hospital.He would be arrested and imprisoned as the swiss law punishes offenders who harrases women verbally and sexually.He took his briefcase which contains his passport,driver’s license etc.He left the house after giving the two waiters and waitresses orders.He flagged down a taxi to the airport.He bought the ticket for the soonest flight coming to Nigeria.His mind was at rest only when the airplane took to the air.
