Chapter 18 Written by Rejoice Igbinovia Aluyi ....we rushed to where mother was and sprinkled some water on her and then she sneezed.we were relived and happy she was conscious again,but then we had an issue at hand.... Adukemi, please tell me,tell me what Ben has said is a lie,you weren't living a deciftul life in School,and you have a womb right,maami asked crying profusely,and it broke my heart into a thousand pieces when she wept... Maami,what he said , though not exactly a lie,but not all of it is true either,I said soberly.. Really,so which part is true and which part is a lie,the person that told me is someone who knows you too well,that you lived a wayward life in School,or that you don't have a womb,which of them is a lie.i thought you were a decent girl,I thought you had morals,I thought you were different,I never knew you were a good for nothing shameless prostituteeeeeeeee...

ADUKE.... Chapter 16 Written by Rejoice Igbinovia Aluyi. Ben happened to be a very lovely person,he loved me so much,he took me to his family,and they received me with open hands and love,I also brought him to see Baami and maami and they liked him so much,who wouldn't like Ben anyways,he was a lively jolly good fellow,,,he had lived most of his years abroad,he comes home every now and then though,he actually came this time to get married and settle in Nigeria,he would only be going on vacation with his family as he had said... I only noticed that a particular number was calling him,and most times he ignores the call,other times he picks up and ask the caller to stop calling him... I had to ask him who the person was one day,and he told him it was his ex girlfriend who was calling him and begging them to get back.. Why did you break up with her,I had asked him... I actually caught her in bed with my best friend in a house I was paying the bills...she said she wanted to leave on her

Written by Rejoice Igbinovia Aluyi ....I couldn't believe maami had agreed with baami that I should visit a prophet,,,at that point,I decided I was going to tell her the truth, that I know what the problem was,,but then,maami is too soft hearted,what if she falls sick or develops a heart attack because of the news,,I am her only child,she couldn't conceive after she had me,and my children,her supposed grand children are all she looks up to,,what then will be the case when she finds out I can't carry a child,ohh Baami wouldn't even believe my story, he'd think I had been involved in a wayward life in school,,who would believe my story anyways,I decided not to... Maami,come on,what does visiting a prophet has to do with all these,I asked her...

ADUKE... Chapter 14. Written by Rejoice Igbinovia Aluyi I was at peace with myself,I was very grateful to God for making me find the one for me,who loves me unconditionally.... Honey,I appreciate your sincerity to me,,but why do you think you can't bear kids like every other woman,he asked politely...the doctor said my womb was damaged,I replied.. Well,we would have to consult another doctor,,,may be that one didn't know what he was saying,he said ..indeed that could be true, Williams has a point,there isn't any harm consulting another doctor I thought within,and then agreed... So we choosed a date to meet with a gynaecologist.... Getting there,my heart was beating fast,I was honestly praying it would be a wrong diagnosis from the previous doctor,and this one would tell me am perfect and in good condition to carry a baby... After some examinations and scans,the doctor asked us to be with him in his office.... Well,am going to make this as simple as possible,you see,some dam
