I stepped down from the cab and took my luggage I kept at the back seat. After paying the driver, he zoomed off while I stood there staring at my house which was just across the streets.
what would I say?
what am I going to tell them if they should ask about me and Brian. dear Lord, please help me. I crossed the streets and walked down the porch to my little house. I gently knocked on the door after some minutes of standing there, cooking up more excuses in my mind.

I heaved, when I felt the door knob being twisted from inside.
The door opened, and Ben was the first person I saw.
“Ciara… is that you?” he asked like someone who’s seen a ghost.
I smile
“yeah it’s me” I say playfully hitting his shoulder. I was trying to act as cool as I can possibly be so that they don’t suspect a thing.
“So you weren’t even missing me?” I asked and he pulled me in for a deep embrace.
I hugged him back. I’ve missed him so much.
“Come inside. I can’t believe Brian allowed you to visit us” he said and my heart sank.
why did he mention his name so soon.
I took a deep breath before walking inside.
“Mom, dad Ciara’s home” he yelled and dad stepped out from the bedroom.
He gave me this look I couldn’t understand.
“Ciara?” he finally called “is that you my child?”
I simply nod.
he walked up to me and took my face in his hand. I was already crying. f–k!
I promised myself I wouldn’t do it.
He hugged me and I did too.
he was my father anyway and I loved him no matter what. he practically raised me even though I wasn’t his daughter. he didn’t leave me on the streets to die.
Even though he was mean to me, I still can’t bring myself to hate him.

I open my eyes and found mom at the entrance of the kitchen. she had tears in her eyes as well.
“How are you feeling? have you been good?” I ask after dad disengaging from the hug.
he took my hands in his. I saw the tears glistening in his eyes.
“I’m OK. can’t you see?” he turned around so I could take a closer look but it was funny so I ended up laughing.
“Dad. you’re too cheesy” I comment
“I’m very fine dear. Brian has been taking very good care of us. he sends us monthly allowances and foodstuffs almost every week”
my eyes flew open
“Brian?” I ask not sure what I heard
“Yes. he gave Ben a job in one of his company as a manager, can you believe that?”
when did he do all of this?
he never mentioned any of this to me. he’s been taking care of my parents and I never knew.
“You know Ciara, when you actually signed that contract to marry him, I was so afraid of what would happen after that but my heart kept on telling me to trust you, that you would actually change Brian for the better. I believed in that cause my daughter is so smart and I’m very proud of you” he compliments
I smile and hug him again for the second time.
he’s never told me this before and it’s nice hearing it from him.
“By the way, where is Brian?”.
The question came like a shock as all eyes were on me expecting a reply.
” Um… he’s okay. he’s just a little busy with work so he asked me to come visit and spend some time with you” I lied
“That’s nice dear. you need to rest. Brian wouldn’t like it if his precious wife looks too skinny from what he sent to us” dad said causing us to laugh.
“Alright dad” I said
Ben helped me with my luggage into my room.
“have some rest ok. I’ll be leaving for work very soon but I’ll see you later when I get back alright?” he ask
I nod
he placed a light kiss on my forehead before heading out the room.
I sat down on my bed and unpacked my stuff from the box.
After arranging my room, I lay down on my bed to have some rest.
But I couldn’t sleep, I kept on thinking about Brian. all my thoughts were on him. how did I think I would sleep when everything is not okay.
The door flew open and mom walked inside.
“Are you ok?” she asked and I nod.
“You look like someone who’s got a lot on her head”
“how can you tell?”
“Cause I’m your mom. and mom’s know everything” she reply
I gazed at her. she called herself my mom. that’s a first.
“Are you sure you know who you’re talking to?” I ask cause maybe she thinks I’m someone else. I just want to let her know that I’m Ciara.
“Ciara I know you’re mad at me. I don’t even deserve to be called a mother after everything I did and said to you. I’m truly sorry and I want us to start afresh please” she begs.
“Mind if I join you?” she ask pointing at the bed and I move a little to the other side so she can sit.
“I know something’s wrong Ciara. your smile is trying to hide all the pain. please talk to me” she begs and before I knew it, I had already started to cry.
“oh mom. I’m ruined” I sobbed more.
she drew me closer to her and patted my back softly as the tears fell freely.
“shhh… it’s okay” she cooed but she was wrong. it’s not okay. it’s never going to be okay.
I narrated everything in details to her. from the day I met Janelle to what happened yesterday before I got here.
“It’s all my fault, if we only tried to listen then all this wouldn’t have happened in the first place” she tells me
“Don’t get me wrong mom. I love Brian. I love him so much but what could I have done. we’re talking about his child here.” I said amidst sobs.
“Stop crying Ciara”
“I miss him mom. it hurts you know” I say wiping the tears that were already forming at the corner of my eyes.
“I know it does but you’ve got to put yourself together. you’ll have to be strong honey okay?”
“Okay mom” I said hugging her again.


After out little chit chat, mom left me to rest which I did.
I don’t know how long I slept but when I woke up, it was already dark. I was already feeling dizzy and my head was aching so badly. I think I’m coming down with a flu. this is what happens when you miss someone too much.
I checked the time. it was six already.
I pulled off the sheets from my body and headed to the kitchen to make dinner.
I found mom there already with Ben’s wife.
I thought she already left.
“can I help?” I ask
“you should be in bed Ciara. not wandering around the house” mom tells me
“I want to help with dinner. I’ve already rested enough”
“ok suit yourself”
“Let me help with this aunt. you can go and rest in my place” I say and she smile patting me on my cheeks.
“It’s so nice to have you back. did I mention that I missed you” she said before walking out of the kitchen.
mom chuckled.
“You can put the turkey in that bowl and chop the vegetables” mom tells me and I nod
I did as instructed and set off to chop the vegetables but I suddenly felt the strangest urge to puke.
I tried to swallow it back in but I failed miserably.
I quickly located the sink and threw up inside.
mom patted my back as I kept on making puking sounds.
“Are you okay?” she asks immediately I washed my face and mouth.
“I think so”
She placed her palm on my neck.
“you’re burning with fever Ciara.” she put down her apron and led me into the sitting room.
I sat down.
“Now stay, don’t come into the kitchen”
“but mom—”
“we’re going to see the doctor after dinner so stay here till I’m done”
I nod “okay”

After serving dinner, she changed her clothes so we could go.
Ben walked in few minutes later.
“why are you dressed?” he asked mom
“Your sister here is sick but doesn’t want to admit it so I’m taking her to the doctor” she tells him
“Are you okay Ciara?”
“She isn’t” she interrupts before I could respond “I guess something big is on its way”
what does she mean by that? I don’t understand
“maybe fever. alright mom. make sure she gets meds okay”

We halted a cab and drove off to the hospital.
We arrived there and walked inside the building alongside mom.
“Are you ok?” she asks when she noticed how pale I looked.
“I’m fine mother” I tell her
“don’t be scared. we’ll just see the doctor and after that we’ll get some meds okay?” she asks and I nod
“that’s a good girl”
We walked to the counter where the nurses attends to patients. and after stating our business, we were led to meet the doctor in her office.
Apparently she’s a woman.
“Good day ma’am” mom greeted
“Hi. have a seat” she said and we sat down facing her.
“What could be the problem?”
“My daughter here is running a fever and just this night she vomited. we’re just here to buy some drugs to stop the fever” mom tells her.
“how about I run a test so we can tell what’s actually wrong with her?” she asks
“that’ll be great”
“come here my dear” she said to me and I stood up.
she walked me to a ward and she took my blood sample.
When she was done she gave it to a nurse and led me back to mother.


“How was it?” mom asked the minute she saw me.
I tilt my head to one side “I don’t know mom. I guess we’ll have to wait” I tell her.

we sat down for a couple of hours before the doctor walked in with a paper which I assumed was the result.
She put on a smiling face which indicated that she was happy. but for what?
“How was the test doctor?” mom asked the minute she sat down.
she glanced at my direction “congratulations Ciara. you’re three weeks pregnant”
it came as a bomb.
I held onto my stomach as my face turned into a, frown.
was all I could mutter, it came like a whisper.

***********BRIAN’S POV***********
I couldn’t sleep.
I can’t sleep
I need to see Ciara. I need her or I’m going to die.
I came back from the hospital only to find out that Ciara was gone and all her luggage as well.
my guess is, she might have gone back home.
I can’t stay here if she isn’t here.
This house is filled with all her memories and worst of all, the honeymoon is officially over cause I can’t spend one minute in this house with Janelle. it would be like ruining a place kept for a goddess.
Only Ciara can bring me back here. and if not her then no one else.
I booked our flight ticket to leave Hawaii back home.
I quickly packed my things and that’s when the witch came in.
“I cooked lunch. let’s eat” she announced
“I’m not hungry”
“but why. it’s your favorite.”
“I’d rather starve to death than eat any food cooked by you cause who knows what conspiracy you have planned out already. maybe to have me dead” I tell her
“I would never do that to you Brian i—” she paused when she saw my things scattered over the room
“what are you doing?’
‘going home’ I tell her
” but why?”
“instead of asking questions, you should be doing the same or else get ready to stay here alone. I’m going to see my wife” I say, and immediately her face went sour
“that again? you signed a contract. she’s no longer your wife. I am” she yells
“And who told you that you can be my wife?” I ask
“Ciara is and will always be my wife and the woman I will always love. the sooner you stick it into that stupid head of yours, the better. now get packing Janelle or else” I threaten
“Or else what?” she fires back
“you really don’t wanna know” I say before heading outside the room.
After arranging my stuff, I left the house with Janelle to the airport.
I’m coming Ciara.
I’ll be there with you soon.
