Episode 8

“Sophia, where are you?” Gina said in a sing song voice as she entered the apartment, she met her friend sprawled on the floor.

“Sophia!!!! What happened? Oh my what happened.” she tried shaking her,but she didn’t even budge.

She took her phone and called Matthew. ”Matthew, its Sophia, she’s dead. No I don’t know how to check her pulse. Do I look like a medical personnel, my friend is in danger here Matthew.” she said hurriedly.

She had not finished talking when one of the tenants came in, and they both took her to Matthew’s hospital.

“Matt baby, what’s going on?” she hung on his shoulder.

“hmm, it seems your friend is in her second trimester.” he said as he entered the office.

“Matt stop saying nonsense, my friend fainted and you’re talking about school semester.” she pushed him angrily.

“Bae no, what I’m actually saying is that your friend is pregnant about six months.” he said, as a frown marred his handsome face.

“You must be joking, how come I didn’t notice and she had been home like twice, her mom would have known or something. Baby stop teasing me, I know you have a wicked sense of humor.”she opted for a light tone.

“Bae, no kidding here. Do you want a scan then?” he said as he sat and looked at her.

To his shock, Gina burst into laughter and looked at him.

“My friend can’t be pregnant, its not possible.”she said, as she eyed him.

“Georgina, have your seat biko, don’t kill yourself yet.”he stood and dragged her to seat beside him.

“No no something is wrong somewhere? What does she do now? Mazi Benjamin will kill her and then oh please somebody tell me this is a lie.”Matthew cradled her head as she cried.

“Its not a lie, but the good thing is that she’s alive, hale and hearty.” he said as he kissed her.

“Sophia, tell me what happened?” Gina asked, they were back in her house after she was discharged, the Christophers also visited her but they didn’t really know the cause of her admission to the hospital.

“I can’t explain it myself.” Sophia clamped up, as she wrapped herself with a bedsheet.

“What do you mean by that? You only have three months left and you’d have a baby, or do they come from the sky? Please talk now.” Gina said sadly. She felt at fault now, if Sophia hadn’t followed them to the club, if only Ness didn’t know about the party and they didn’t go maybe all this would have been averted.

“Gina, I’m sorry I can’t tell you what happened. I was drunk and miserable, imagine your own best friend was sleeping with your fiance and then she walks around acting innocently. Then a random guy tells you a good break up and I was jilted story. That was what went on, are you happy now?” she said with a frown.

“So you don’t know the father, or you won’t tell me?” Gina asked after she had processed all her friend’s story.

“I won’t say it.” Sophia sat on the settee, she was furious, how come her first and only time resulted into this? What did she do to nature?

“So when are you telling your parents?” Gina said, as she sat beside her.

“I really don’t know, I’m scared of papa, my mom isn’t really a concern.” she said shrugging her shoulders.

“But I think you should let the father of this child know.” Gina said, crossing her legs and looking at her friend who sat and curled herself up.

“And what will I gain? He’ll just laugh at me and tell me the normal story of its your business go and take care of your child or better still evacuate it.” Sophia said with a hiss.

“So you’re keeping the baby.” Gina sat up surprised.

“Yes, I am. I had decided from the moment Matthew told me and I’m ready to do anything to protect my baby.” Gina smiled happily, she was glad her friend wasn’t like others, she was solidly behind her decision and infact she was already picking names.

“So do I get to be a godmother?” she said teasingly.

At this Sophia laughed and said to her, ”Really so you can name the child abi? I’ve been suspecting you ever since your aunt allowed you to be a godmother, you have been giving little children names. Okay you’ll be the godmother, how many names have you gotten now?” she looked as Gina counted on her fingers.

“Twelve. Is that enough?” Gina said as Sophia and herself burst into laughter.
