Angela stood up from her bed and went to the kitchen.She saw a food covered on the kitchen’s cabinet.The Food had left for her by mum before going to her supermarket.She opened it and it was a favourite,Porridge and garnished Vegetable soup.She smiled and started eating,humming the tune of Mariah carey’s Always be my baby.She thought lovingly of Jake and her heart raced faster.
It had been 5 days since she heard of him and she wondered what could have gone wrong as it was rare of him not to holla.As she ate on,her belly rumbled and she squeezed her face.She drank water and continued to eat but soon the pains became sharper.She screamed and the ceramic plate in her hand fell and shattered.She started rolling on the kitchen floor.Her Dad heard her noise and came downstairs calmly.He lifted her up,while she was still wincing pain and drove her to the hospital.
Angela’s mum was called and she rushed down from her shop to the hospital.She was surprised to see Angela in the hospital and wondered what was wrong until the doctor called both Father and mother into his office.
“Hum..Mr and Mrs Tarsey”He began.”Your daughter miscarriaged the six weeks foetus in her…All thanks that the drug she used didn’t destroy her womb..She’s still fertile”
“Whaaat!!”Angela’s mum said.
“Yeah..Thanks doctor..”Angela’s dad said,getting up and smiling.
“Can we see her now?”Angie’s mum asked sadly.
“Yes..sure”The doctor replied.
They walked to the ward Angela was.She was in tears and hugged the pillow as she sat against the hospital wall.
“What’s making you cry?”Angela’s dad asked.
“I knew this is your handwork…You devil!!!”Angela
‘s mum spatted.
“Well..You aren’t going home..You are going to New zealand from here..To meet your brother…That’s where you’re spending the rest of your life”He replied calmly.
“Ohhh..why daddy!!!”Angela said and bursts into tears.
“That’s it…You should be happy…You have your passport and haven’t you be processing your travelling..Your brother has submitted your documents to the New Zealand Consulate and you have been given visa..You are leaving by the first flight..i made reservations for you online…Now get up,baby girl”Angela’s dad said.
Angela cleaned her face and stood up.Her mum petted her telling her to accept her fate and move on.She simply nodded and smiled.She should be going over to New zealand,She thought.
Jemimah opened her eyes and met herself seated in a chair.She looked around and recognised the familiar structure of an aeroplane.”Where am i?”She asked no one in particular.Her handbag was beside her and she wondered the person who got her dressed.The airplane bumped and she turned her head to see it had landed.She sat still until a man entered with two men with stretcher.She looked and saw a familiar face dressed in uniform but her eyes seem to blur.She soon fell asleep.
She woke up third day and looked around her.It was the familiar walls of her room in Nigeria.She stood up abruptly and felt relieved.She opened the door and went to the sittingroom.Two men were sitted watching Television.She coughed and they stood up.She looked beside her and screamed”Jakee!!!”.She knelt on the floor pleading for forgiveness.Jake looked at her with distant eyes.Tears formed in his eyes.”This young man here came to lagos a week ago after his girlfriend Jilted him and left for New zealand.He was employed by the Nigerian Immigration service…Your case was tabled before us in the office as it was sent from switzerland..He fought hard for not letting you to be imprisoned for illegal immigration as you have no documents..All thanks to him”Jeremiah said conclusively and sat down sipping his whisky.
Jake beckoned to jemimah and she ran into his open arms.”I’m sorry Jake”She said in tears as she hugged him hard.”It’s fine”Jake said adjusting her hairs.He planted a deep kiss on her lips which she returned with vigour.
