THAT NIGHT IN ROOM 104

My Husband grabbed his chest in surprise and shock, but with a smile, when the doctor told him I was two months gone… Obviously, He thought the baby was his, it could never have crossed his mind that I had sexual intercourse with Larry.. My husband was on cloud nine, praising God as he drove from the hospital. My conscience told me I was doing something wrong… Just at that moment, the last person I expected to hear from called my line…. I refused to pick up. Daniel noticed, he picked it up instead and said in excitement.. Hey, Brother Larry, my wife cannot pick up right now, she is in shock ooo, me self…., where are you, there is good news…” I gave Daniel a surprising look and I shook my head in the negative but Daniel kept ranting.. We are coming over to the Church as well, for me personally to roll in front of the altar, we will see there… ” Daniel had tears of Joy rolling down his face as he kept saying ” Thank you Jesus, Thank you for producing a baby out of NO Sperm count…

Thank you Lord… Please make the baby a girl, I want her to be just like her mother… Just like Grace, a woman who loves God… Do we have to tell Larry, let’s keep it between us” I said Not Larry, he has been a good friend to us, encouraging and praying for you… You know we also need to inform him so as to help me keep watch over you, when you go for your ministrations…. “Daniel kept ranting on… I felt I was going to explode, my tears kept flowing and at the same time anxiety of seeing Larry was driving me crazy. I didn’t even realize we were in church, but Daniel jumped down from the vehicle and ran towards Larry. He gave him a big Embrace, and whispered something in his ears, I saw instant shock on Larry’s face as his body stiffened In Daniel’s embrace. Larry gave a big smile to cover up, and congratulated Daniel, In fact he knelt on the floor praising God when he said Thank you for doing this for me, you know how much I have longed for this”… He stood up and walked towards me, while Daniel kept rolling in front of the altar, Larry gave me a sisterly hug and whispered.. I am thanking God for doing this for me, because you and I know This baby is mine.. I gave you the baby, you and your husband have been looking for… For me to keep quiet, you need to repay me…. I love you , Daniel came to join the hug .. If I didn’t know any better I would have said we looked like a happy bunch…

I couldn’t sleep as the thought of aborting the pregnancy was all I could think of.. When Daniel finally fell asleep, I literally crawled into the kitchen and I squeezed 5 Big lime and gulped it down… I walked back into the room, waiting for the blood to flow out, but I found Daniel on the floor with his hand on his right chest and my phone on the floor beside him… He had tears flowing down his face. As I rushed to help him, I noticed my phone screen was bright… I checked to see why… Larry had sent a text,

“On a second thought I want my baby, don’t you think it is high time we killed your husband and make you mine…”

I couldn’t read the text to the end…. As I summed it up… Daniel because of his hypertensive nature must have read the text and went into shock.. Different thoughts flooded my heart… First, I thought of leaving him to die, to cover my sin… I was crying so hard, I couldn’t breathe… If he died, I would just tell the lie he died in his sleep. I will abort the pregnancy and start my life all over… Secondly, I thought of helping him, but if he survived, there would be an automatic divorce…

Please tell me, dear readers , at this point, what do you think would have been my best option?

Share whatever you think dear readers.
