S2 W4. Selfish

He had come for only 10 minutes. But he had come. *sighh* I feel good. So good I had eaten that CRAP this hospital calls food, just so I could have energy for when he came in today. He said he was gonna come by today. He never really said a time though, but whatever, he's going to come. I didnt know I had raised my hand to fix my hair until I felt my hand running and patting the nest down. I looked at the clock. 9:30am. Hmn...

The nurse came in.

"Good Morning Miss Bello." She was a round chirpy lady. Bright red hair and offensively red lipstick. Her tag read....I squinted a bit...I think it read Lisette. Or something.

"Morning...." I smiled and sat up.

"You seem better this morning" she was checking the IV beside me, the machine readings, for baby I figure, etc. I wonder if she REALLY gave a shit about  how I felt this morning or if it was just idle talk while she poked around me.

"I AM better"

"That's good, that's good...." she wrote some stuff down, did some checking again, wrote more stuff down. I silently waited for her to finish. "Ooooooo..." she wrote down more stuff "..kkkk!" she hit the pad like she just wrote a period or something then finally focused on me. I smiled. "Any nausea this morning?"

I shook my head. "Dizziness?" Head shake. "Fatigue?" more head shake. "Are you sure you're pregnant?" She laughed at the rhetorical question. "Ok the doctor would be in to see you shortly." She turned around to leave.

"Er.............Which doctor please?"

"Dr Ndani." She pronounced it Dah-nee... I must've smiled too hard because she smiled back at me like she knew that my tummy was somersaulting and heart was singing.

"Thank you."

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

My eyes never left the door after Lisette left. She had said shortly and Oh, I'm a patient one today. I simply just laid there in wait. He came in shortly after.

"Hey you."  He's eyes were on the clip board. I waited for him to look up. He did. Now... My day has begun.

" Morning."

"Rest well?"

"Mhmn... you?"

"3 hours 12 minutes sleep. Heaven"

"That can't be healthy doctor." What's it with me and all these cheesy lines? I cant help it....

"We have been conditioned don't worry." He smiled at me, oo, was that baby moving? How in teh world did he get his teeth soo.... pearly white. "So... are your ready to go home?"

If you're coming with me, sure? I almost said that out loud....."I guess so, I feel fine. The food sucks by the way"

He smiled and walked towards me. I adjusted my seat. He noticed my nervousness.

"I wont make you sick again don't worry, you can relax"

See this guy. Relax when he's a few inches away from me ready to make contact. Which kind dirty Relax!.... I held my breath.

"Really Suni." I let it go."Ok, lets  make sure everything is all right before I sign your release form..."

*************************************************************************************************************** 
"Yale, please can you come and get me from this prison. They have released me o."

"Yaay! Ok I'm coming." my phone beeped showing there was an incoming call. "See  you in a bit, another phone call is coming in" I clicked off....it rang again. Caller ID kicked in.Hiss.... bofun."Yes Toba how can I help you?"

"Is Suni Ok?"

"Is your HEADD ok?? And how does her welfare concern you?" I didnt have time for this conversation. This man had single handedly reduced my friend to.......a malnourished mother.

"Please Yale... she's not the only one suffering here."

"Really? You too are storing a baby in a malnourished body because your boyfriend wanted you to MURDER it and it pushed you to a very dangerous depression. How sad. I never knew." I didnt wait for him to respond. "Look, I have places to go and people see, please go and find another person's life to ruin...."

It was so silent on the other end that I thought he had dropped the phone on me. Then he spoke.

"I just want to know if she's alright.... if she kept it." Oh I was about to kill a mutherf...

"You................." 

"...Yale, it makes no sense she would be MORE fucked up IF she keeps it......you have to under -" I really could not believe this nigga.

"....Ass-hole!"

"...I love Suni....I want her to have my kids, I want her to be my wife......" he took a deep breath. " But this one..... this would kill her.....Literally."

This IDIIIOOT. This Mad Man. This Fooooooooool... This.....This...

"Toba. I think I'm done listening to your BS. Have a blasted day and don't be calling me back or i WILL have cops on your occultist ass." 

What arrant nonsense. Literally my ass. I grabbed my keys and headed for my car. Suni was going to just LOVE hearing this story.

My phone vibrated when I got into the car. it was a text message from Asshole.
URGENT REPLY REQUIRED: This isn't a matter of feelings  now Yale. I promise on my mothers grave Suni is not safe keeping that baby. I cant reach her and she wont talk to me. But As much as you hate my guts now too, you're the only one that I think I can reason with. Please. Let me tell you everything. So you can understand... and help her too. Stanley's on Carter Avenue at 8:30? Please.

I sat in the car for another 5 minutes. Thinking.

He wants to tell me everything.

I am curious. I want to know why he is so scared of keeping this baby. But.... would I be betraying Suni by listening, is the million dollar question.  I mean it would make sense for me to understand fully so I can advise her well right? But he has hurt her sooo much..............................................................................I didnt reply.


Just yet.

Ok, so Ive been terrorized for not delivering webisodes every minute! Lol...so lets do it this way. I've obviously had difficulty being able to deliver a webisode each week. So I'm going to have to make it bi-weekly. (Help me ehn this is not my full time job! lol.)

I will however make the webisodes considerably longer and more interactive.

S2 W8. Ignorance is Bliss

Always talking! Ronke can NOT shuttup. Lai lai. She was on her phone when she entered the office.....without knocking! Might I add. She froze for a split second when she saw me. Like she was surprised.
“E ye o! Yale since when??”
“I should as you the same question.” She was holding a Swiss Chalet take out bag in her hand. What the… “I see you brought lunch…” I eyed the bag.
She held it up “Yaaaa…..” then dropped it again “Seems like I’ll be eating alone.”
I did NOT appreciate the way this conversation sounded. I felt I was sharing my man. I don’t know. This was just not rubbing me the right way. “Mhmn…” Or maybe I was just being paranoid. Ronke, loud mouth as she is, is still a sweetheart…………………………
Shafa coughed and stood up. “Ronke what’s really good? This is a pleasant surprise.” He pointed to the couch on the other side of the office. He walked to my side and sat on the table beside me.
She smiled to herself, like she understood something and it was funny. “I was just in the hood o, you…

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. W21 Where do we go from here?

Life is the number one entertainer of all times. I have to give it a round of applause. I don't know how long I have been lying down here. Probably day 3 now I estimate. I haven't looked at my phone but I know its been ringing. Shafa....probably Suni... I wont be surprised to see Ronke's name on that list. Bitch. I turned my face away from the ceiling back to the wall. I had deduced a pattern sequence in my red wall. I could find it again. My phone vibrated again.
What I can't really understand is....why this is breaking my heart so much. I mean. Shafa doesn't have iron running through his veins. His a human being. And like a human being... he's wired to mess up. I'm laying here. I've cried out all my insides. Ive not eaten. I've not showered. I'm putting my life on pause because of something that was....is...inevitable.
But man....it hurts. It really does.
Life MUST  go on. Its getting back up that matter right? OK now. I'll get up. And get o…
