I sat in that position for over 7 mins analyzing what my best option was. With hands like Jelly, I picked up my phone and I found myself dialing Larry’s number. That was the only person I could think of calling. It rang just twice…

” So?” What is your conclusion…. ?”. He said with the most emotionless voice I have ever heard from his mouth…

” Daniel is dying” I summoned all the strength to say it…

” You did it?… what did you use? Rat poison?… I knew you could do it, I will be on my way right now, to help you finish it up… We will make His death clean without implicating you…. ” I couldn’t believe the words pouring out of his mouth and for the first time it seem like I saw who Larry was… He was the devil sent to finish me… The love I felt for him suddenly became hatred and fear…

Larry’s place was just 10 minutes drive from my place. It suddenly hit me, Larry was on his way to kill Daniel… Was that what I wanted?… I think I must have heard the Holy Spirit, because ever since that night in Room 401, the voice of the Holy Spirit was far…

I heard ” Get Daniel out of here fast”…How was I going to get my big sized husband out of this house… ? At this point… I was not sure I could drive…. My legs felt like Iron…

I decided to call our doctor to send the ambulance, which I did, but he told me it would take about 25 mins because of the distance…

As I rounded up the call with my doctor, I heard the banging of the gate… I froze… Larry was around already? … I curled up beside Daniel saying the only prayer that I could utter… ” God, please don’t let Daniel die…please send Larry away ”

My phone started ringing, I didn’t have to check the screen to know who it was… Suddenly, the banging stopped, I heaved a sigh of relief. Larry was gone….

Or so I thought until I heard a loud thud, Larry had jumped the fence into the compound… Oh my, there was no stopping him.. As a close family friend, he knew our emergency entrance into the house through the roof… Larry was going to kill Daniel…

I sat down defeated on the floor, as I heard his footsteps on the roof, …The door… Yes!… The door to the room. I jumped up and locked the bedroom door. Larry got into the house and was calling my name in the most loving way I have ever heard…

” Grace… Bae….Where are you?…I know You are scared…We can handle this together… Sometimes bad things have to happen to others, for us to be happy”

By this time, he was at the door of the bedroom…

” Open Grace…Let’s do this before the day breaks..
You know I love you baby, this is for us, When we are done with this, I will divorce my wife, so we can be together… ”

I didn’t move an inch… I sat beside Daniel who was already in a coma, as I kept checking if he was breathing…

” Larry, please leave me, I don’t love you any more” I said with the little strength in me… My eyes were gushing out tears on its own accord…

” No you do, You love me and I love you… you are just stressed up”… He said trying to convince me…

” Larry you are destroying me, Is that what you came for?…I thought you came to help my music, but my music does not mean anything to me any more… , If you want to finish me, please do, not my husband, he is a Good man… ” I cried bitterly

” I love you, is that a crime, we are soul mates, if you had not married early, may we would be married ” Larry was saying using his sweet cajoling voice, but I noticed Larry was moving around as he spoke… I didn’t understand why until I saw the door knob moving… He was obviously trying to break in with a knife or something…

Larry was going to kill Daniel …. Just then a Miracle happened… We heard the siren of the ambulance…

” You called the police on me, Grace? ” Larry asked with disbelief

” NO…I mean it is… ” I tried explaining it was an ambulance, but them it hit me… This was the way out… Larry thought the ambulance was the police, this was the best opportunity … I didn’t utter any more word… Larry got furious…

” Grace you are going to pay for this, You called the police on me? ” He left the door, opened the Back door of the kitchen and jumped out through the fence…

With shaky hands and feet, I went out to open the gate for the ambulance. We got to the hospital in time… But it was too late…

Daniel was already a vegetable….Alive but no more active… My one night of adultery was giving way to more than I bargained for…

I had two problems now… First, What do I tell my Igbo in-laws….? Secondly, I have to face Larry ‘s wrath…, Larry, the handsome devil I thought I knew before, at that moment I didn’t know what he was capable of doing next…

” What exactly prompted this attack, could it have been the news of the pregnancy..Maybe the excitement was too much for his fragile heart? ” Doctor Jack asked me…

” Exactly.. He doesn’t want the pregnancy ” I summoned all confidence to say

” What?, You both have been looking for the fruit of the womb for 12 years, what do you mean your husband doesn’t want the pregnancy, is he not the father of the child?….You of all people can never sleep with another man… ” Doctor Jack said with so much trust in me…

I wouldn’t blame him, no one would have Imagined that the Anointed Singer Grace committed Adultery and has a child out of marriage…. I had to cook up something….

” Doctor Jack, it’s beyond the ordinary… This is a secret between my husband and I, I shouldn’t be telling you this but I believe you can be of help” I said convincingly

“Okay? How? “…He asked with a look of uncertainty

” My Mother In law is in a secret society, which she forced my husband into. The secret society gave my husband the wealth he has, but with a condition. He must never have children… It was said that the day I give birth, he will die. I have always thought it was just superstition ,but seeing the reality, I know it is not joke…

” What?. What are you saying? . Bro Daniel is in a secret cult? ”

I nodded, as I began to fear who I was turning into, a Big time liar but I had a plan…

“So doctor, we need to act fast, get rid of the pregnancy I am carrying so that my husband can live?

” Jesus! God forbid… I don’t believe you are the one saying this…You are a woman of God… and besides, my faith does not permit me to abort, I can’t… “Doctor Jack looks in disbelief

” But we need to save my husband’s life… Get rid of this baby or else I will do it elsewhere… My husband is dying and you are talking about a child I don’t know will survive or not..”

I walked out of his office angrily, I never knew I could act my plan something well… My plan was going to work, the doctor was going to get rid of the pregnancy for me…

I entered Daniel’s room, and I saw a lifeless good man… I sat beside him and held his hands… Tears not bargained for dropped down my face on it’s will

” Daniel, You will be fine, I promise, I am sorry for everything I did, I got carried away… I know it was the text you read from Larry that made you go into shock, because you find out that the baby is not yours…. Hmmm…. I am willing to kill this baby for you… Please stay alive… Stay alive… Stay alive for your good self, not for worthless ME… And when you get better, if you never want to see me again… I will go far away from you… Just don’t add your death to the list of the wrong things I have done in such a short time.. I never knew I will ever mean this words, but I do… “.I love you Daniel and I hope you survive this… ”

” Where is she, where is the useless Yoruba girl”…That was the authoritative voice of my mother in law… I had sent her a text earlier, that Daniel was sick…

She burst into the room with eyes like fire, I was on my feet already…

” If my son dies you will know what it feels like to be a widow In Igbo land…I told Tochukwu( Daniel) not to marry you, but he refused…”

Doctor Jack walked in…

” Good Afternoon ma, we can’t accept this noise in here, and besides the woman you are shouting at is pregnant, she doesn’t need this stress ” Doctor said

Oh My Goodness, why did Doctor Jack open his big mouth.., but what happened next was a good one because it corroborated my fake story about the secret society…

” Hey… I said it ooo, this Yoruba girl has an evil mission, she has gotten herself pregnant, so as to kill my son… God forbid… Grace Abi Disgrace… If my son dies I will personally kill you and the baby..
You know Tochukwu is the only son I have…

Mama went to her son, wailing all over him, Doctor Jack looked at me and shook his head…

My plan was going to work, I would have aborted the pregnancy before Daniel regains himself. Larry will have no say over me anymore …because I have my own plans for him… I will call Maami ( My Mother) on his matter and if you knew who Maami was, You will be afraid for Larry…

Am I pushing this thing too far? Let me hear your views before I continue my tale…. .
