On my way, I heard my little bro calling out to one of his friends. It’s monday morning and everyone is going to their different destinations except me cause I have nowhere to go. Okay this is my story, my name is sophie and I will be 19 by December although its still August. I graduated secondary school three years ago, and also had a tragic experience same year. My mum is an event planner, we live in Lagos now and my dad is a doctor here.
Three years ago after I graduated second school then we were still at Ibadan while Dad works in Lagos here, I decided to visit my dad in lagos and stay with him for while. Dad was against it at first but after a lot of tears he agreed, well the vacation wasn’t as sweet as I thought cause dad was always at work and I missed my mom and my younger siblings.
On the day I was coming back dad decided to see me off to the garage before heading to work. I took a bus heading to Ibadan and I can remember my self waving to dad until he was out of sight I can still remember the look on his face, he looked exhausted and sad and mere looking back I never knew that day will change my life.
The ride from lagos to Ibadan was uneventful, when I alight the bus in Ibadan, I took a cab going to my side and it was around that time I had a blackout.
The next time I opened my eyes was at the hospital, the whole room was full of beeping sounds, I looked around but there was no one there when I tried to talk my throat was dry and sour, my voice came out cracky and hoarse.
But the changes in the beeping sound got the doctors attention.
When I saw my parents face my heart broke, the look hagard. My mum came running to me crying.
Oh baby!! I thought we…..
No no I can’t even think of losing you again….. She broke into another sob.
Dad came forward too tears running down his face.
Oh!!! sweetheart so sorry, I should have brought my baby girl home my self, am so so sorry.
I couldn’t help crying too, they looked so lost. Suddenly I felt something strange in my stomach.
I looked down and noticed my stomach was round and slightly bigger than normal.
I looked back at moms face she looked sad, dad couldn’t look at me straight in the eye and I knew something bad was wrong with me but then I never imagined my self pregnant cause there was no way it could happen.
Oh!!! How did I get to Know so soon? Mom was blabbering and blurted the word ‘pregnant’ out, well that was the only word I picked before I started packing.
