W17a. A Slight Change of Plans

Should I pick up one on the way? Like me I personally don't like suspense, fine she may be scared, in denial, but all this "Yeee, ohhhh, howww?" can be eliminated sharply. Ah screw it I'm getting one.

I dropped by the drug mart near Suni's, got the goodies and a tub of Häagen-Daz.....it was on sale jo!!

**********************************************************

"I'm outside o...."

She was already coming out even before she answered, she was probably waiting by the window.
"Yea yea..."

She was wearing a huge sweater and baggy pants. It was obvious she hadn't slept much.

"So, because you think you are prego, you now want to be dressing like a couch slug? Your ensemble is pre-tty ba..."

"Abeg drive jo, who ask you?" She slouched so far down the chair, if you were looking from outside you wouldn't know someone was in the passengers seat. She spotted the Daz. "Ozimmmeeeeee darling! Ah!" she lounged for it.... and I stepped on the brakes. I didn't even bother parking, we were in the middle of the street, but there was NO way I would let her attack the Daz .... trust me, it would be empty before I could say Huckleberry Finn! This ice-cream was our savior...I'm telling you there are answers to every life problem at the bottom of that tub, you just have to get there!

"Suni, if I box your tummy ehn!!" I slapped her hand.

"Ohhhh-hhhhh! We are going to be nabbed o! Just drive, I promise I wont eat.... all." I boxed her! "Ouuchh, stop now... ok ok ok" her grip loosened on the bag "I just want to....you know.... admire the box!!!"

I snatched the bag anyways and put it between mine so that if she had to take it away, ehen.. na to crash the whole vehicle now. "Gredger."

**********************************************************

We ended up at the Denny's* on the outskirts of town. I'm sure we both mentally wanted to keep the random bump in's with whoever to the extreme minimum. We settled down and made our orders...

"You bought it. Thanks..." I guess she was referring to the home test. "Mennn............"

"Ok, you know me I don't like stress, so before we get into..."I paused to find the right word.."whatever we get into, lets do this." I nodded towards the bathroom.

She nodded back and led the way, she looked so scared.

**********************************************************
"How long are we meant to wait for?" She was speaking from the stall, her voice shook a bit.

"I don't know..." then it occurred to me to look at the box "it says 5 minutes...."

She didn't answer. I hadn't heard her pee (grossss-sss). "Suni, have you even peed on it?"

"No....." Ok?

"Er, you may want to do that first......"

"Oh shattap. I know..."

"Sorry."

There was shuffling, a woman walked in... I hid the box in my bag. Fronted like I was applying makeup with an invisible brush. She entered the stall beside Suni's.

I finally heard peeing. I doubt it was Suni's though, but I still got happy that progress MIGHT be being made. Flush. Lady comes out. So much for progress.
"Suni......"

"Yale! Please!"

"Sorry.... ok ok, do you want me to wait-"

"No!....No...please..." The lady refuses to go o. It's like she's finding gist. Amebor!! Hew! See her eyyyesss. Gist monger. Wash hand dey go jo! I don't know when washing hand became a life time commitment."Stay here k. I'll do it now."

I heard ruffling so I assumed she was preparing to take the pee of her life. Lady walks ever so slowly to the dryer. It came on just as Suni started doing her business. I didn't even try to hide the cut eye I was giving the woman. She knewwww she was waiting for gist. Dryer finished. Lady still dey inspect hand. Ah Ah.

I was about to ask her if everything was ok when she turned to me and was like "Wish her luck, its a good thing anyways" And walked away. Hia! Who made her oracle now?

"Suni.....are you ok?" she didn't answer me. I guess she was waiting on the picture. or sign or whatever. I started sweating too. See if Suni was preggo it is going to be so life changing and altering that... Man. Ok let's just see. I walked to her stall and stood close to the door. "You're going to grow gray hair standing and waiting for that thing to show something... come out jo so that time can pass faster." Still no answer...screw it i knelt down and peeked under the stall. Suni was gripping onto this thing like it was her lifeline. "Suni you're going to be fine!" she jumped.

"Ew Yale... gettup, that's just nasty!" she opened the stall door.

"Just for you..." I hugged her...."How long has it been...?

She looked at the stick as she said "Long enough" Suni's mouth dropped. Along with home pregnancy test.

S2. W19 - We need to Talk

I had booked marked 1 page so far. And that was because I felt I was being too picky. It was called Adonai. I almost didn't find it as it wasn't on the first few pages of the google search term, but somehow for some odd reason I had clicked through 5 ages of google results and somehow Adonai had jumped at me. I loved their slogan. "When there's no where else to go" It was simple but strong. Their website was very simple but I could tell it was professionally done. It wasn't a random person with no experience whatsoever in web design that decided to piece together a site, this was well thought out. Their choice of words, their images...Very marketable.
So far with everything I had read, I was impressed. Felt almost as though there were talking to me specifically. So I had bookmarked it. I was going to marinate on this a bit longer. I needed to anyways. 
My bladder started complaining again. These two creatures wont kill me o! Every time they wan wee wee.  I put m…

S2. W18 - Sticky.

So we stood outside the door. Photo in hand... and shock on our faces. I was numb. No.. no... not numb...I was feeling very besides myself. Yale put her arm around me.. "We are blocking the entrance...lets go the car.." Seems she had come through... well then again it would be easy for her to snap back. She doesn't have two human beings growing inside of her. She led me to the car.
"So....." Suni sat there like a statue her hands limp on her laps. "Suni?" I smacked her hand. "SUNI!"
"Yea...?" her response was so slow. She turned to me... "What?"
"Well....?" My eyes asked the rest of the million questions I had in my head. What was she going to do? How was this going to work out? One is overwhelming but two? like two babies..? Ah.
"Yale... you're asking the wrong person"
"Should we call your mom?"
She looked at me like I had just suggested I run her over with the car. "For what?"

S2. W17 - Alternative Options

I swear I feel my tummy grew overnight. I'm barely over 3 months and I feel like I'm 6 months far along. I struggled to fit into my mini-maternity pants. They were so cute. They were meant to be for mothers between 1 - 3 months. But no not me. I already started missing my pre-preggo frame. My  ultrasound appointment was at 9:30 and it was 9:12. I had ONLY just finished putting on these freaking pants. I looked like a pregnant goat. I was  SOO showing. Like.. forget XXL sweaters or hobo shirts... my FACE alone was a dead giveaway.  Porky.
*Sigh* No time to sulk. I grabbed my keys and dipped. Yale was linking up with me there and we all know how she gets when shes made to wait. We were going to see baby today! She was excited, I was cranky. Tired maybe. But yes... no going late.

"Arinze!"
"What have I done now?"
"You owe me TIME... we haven't seen since plus I need someone to talk to."
*Sigh*....…
