Is it true? What kind of joke is this? How will
she be pregnant? Under my nose? For

that……but come to think of it, this is an
expensive joke ooooo…..
Shade called me around quarter to twelve that
she will be in the hostel in the next five
minutes that I should meet her up there…I put
on my cloth, told my friends that I want to
pick something in my hostel..i got there and
shade was already waiting at the entrance
door, she had changed in my eyes…..I went
downstairs and bought two malt for both of us
and we sat down on bed for discussion…………
Me:so, what happened? Why that expensive
joke now shade?
Shade: ***started crying******am not joking
Me:then tell me it’s a lie
Shade: ***knelt down in front of me and
started crying******Am very sorry snakie, I
don’t know how it happened
Me: ****devastated, started trembling and still
curious*****how did it happen? Who are you
pregnant for? How old is the pregnancy?
Shade: Going to two month now………….
Me:what? Two month? (stood up)…………
Shade: That’s more reason why have been
running away from you for the past two month
cos I know have offended you and my mind
has not been at peace……….
Me: Ohk..pls wait and stop crying..who got
you pregnant and how did it happen?
Shade: pls am sorry baby….
Me:have heard u, am not angry and you are
forgiven, Just tell me who got you pregnant
Shade:are u sure you are not angry?

Me: so, how did it happen…………..
Shade: *****started crying heavily again*****I
don’t just know, pls find a place in your heart
to forgive me pls
Me:You are forgiven already but how did it
Shade:U know during that mini strike that I
went home to spend two weeks, he met me on
my street one day and we greeted, he now
invited me to his house saying atleast if we
are not dating, that doesn’t mean we
shouldn’t be friend…..so, I went to his place
that faithful Saturday, he offered me malt and
I drank then the next thing I remembered was
that we were both totally Unclad on bed..i
started crying and he begged me not to and
that he was sorry…
Me:But during that time you visited home,
there was no day we don’t talk atleast 3 times
a day and I use to ask you so many questions
but u never told me you met him not to talk of
going to his house
Shade: Am very sorry, I was scared of your
Me:ohk…did he know you are pregnant?
Shade:Yes, I told him when it was 3 weeks
Me: Then why didn’t u go for the option of
abortion if you love me and you still want to
keep this relationship
Shade: He threatened me that notyn must
happen to his baby
Me: and u decided to leave it?
Shade: am confuse and don’t know what to do
Me: That’s it now..cos when you got pregnant
for me then, u were the one clamouring for
abortion against my wish but this time around
you are not ready cos I believe if u truly
cherish our relationship you would have abort
it without my knowledge and I wont even know
anything about it..
Shade:Am confuse baby…pls forgive me
Me:Who have you talk to about the pregnancy
Shade:Nobody, except 3 of us…….
Me:So, what do u want to do?
Shade: I don’t know sincerely, but I will be
ready to abort it so far we can come back
together to the way we were
Me:is now u want to abort it?
Shade: Yes, the s-x was not my wish, He
Me:what did u go and do in his house in the
first place? And u didn’t tell me
Shade: *****held my legs with her two hands
and continue crying****** Am very sorry baby,
pls forgive me, I want to spend the rest of my
life with you, its you I want in my life, am very
Me:so, what do u want me to do
Shade: I want you baby, lemme abort the
pregnancy and we come back together, pls
cover me from embarrasment baby, pls cover
my shame, I beg of you baby…………….
After so much crying and silence in the room
for a while…………
Me: Ohk..No problem, have heard you, you
must get rid of the pregnancy before next
weekend and am not giving you one naira to
do this….you have to find a way to do it
yourself cos I don’t want to have a hard in
