When I get home, Zyair is propped up against the pillows, typing on my laptop. He is probably working on one of my assignments, Zyair always makes sure my assignments are done and submitted on time.
He looks up at me and smiles,” Hey babe! How was the girl’s night out?You enjoyed yourself?”
“It was amazing, thank you. How’s your evening been? Have you had your supper?”
“Yes, I loved the food you cooked, thank you.”
“You are welcome.”
I undress,walk into the bathroom, turn on the shower and take a quick bath. When I get out I dry off and wrap a towel around me and walk back into our bedroom. Pulling out a red nightdress, I get dressed and join Zyair in bed.
“Can we talk?”
“You are okay?”
“I’m fine, there’s just something I need to tell you.”
“Okay, give me a minute.”
He saves his work and turns off the laptop then he puts it on the bedside table before he faces me, “what’s up?”
I place my hand on my belly and intently stare into his eyes before I say, “Babe, I am pregnant!”
“What?” Zyair shriekes loudly.
“I found out a couple of days ago and I wanted to be sure before I broke the news to you. I went to the hospital today and the doctor confirmed it. We are gonna have a baby.”
“I’m going to be a father. WOW!,” he exclaims as he kisses me excitedly.
Relived by his reaction, I smile. At least one of them is happy about the baby.
“How far along are you?”
“Three months,” I say, silently praying for the baby to be his.
“So we have like six months to prepare for our little bundle of joy? We need to move into a bigger house to accommodate the baby. I can’t wait to start getting stuff for him and to decorate his nursery and…”
“I am certain it will be a boy.”
“Okay daddy, whatever you say.”
“I can’t believe I am going to have a little one of my own. What are we going to name him?”
“Calm down babe, we still have enough time for that and we don’t even know the sex of the child yet so one thing at a time.”
“I am so happy babe,” he kisses me again.
“And I am tired now. I want to rest.”
“Okay,” he kisses me one last time. “I want everything to be perfect, I don’t want you to stress yourself. Whatever you need I will provide. If you need to take time off work please do that and I will provide all your needs.”
“You are amazing.”
“You don’t know how much I have been praying for this. I don’t want anything to go wrong this time around so..”
“Babe, everything will be fine.”
“Okay. I love you.”
“And I love you more.”
Zyair is an amazing husband, I should be excited to go through this process with him expect my heart is torn. I am trying to pretend to be as happy as he is, hoping he doesn’t see through me. Kingsely’s reaction left me shattered, I don’t even know where I stand with him right now.
It’s not even about his money anymore, I think I like him more than I should and it will break me if he puts an end to what we have.
Zyair pulls me close to him so my head is resting on his chest. “Have a good night, babe.”
I have been parked in front of Tia’s house for almost an hour now, I have been debating with myself wheather to do this or not.
The last time I cleaned up Kingsley’s mess I told him I wouldn’t do it again, I warned him to stay away from these young girls but my plea obviously fell on deaf ears.
God knows I am tired of cleaning up after him but what else am I supposed to do?I can’t allow my family to be disgraced in public. As a church, there are so many people that look up to us- so many families that come to my husband for help and prayers. What would become of them if they found out their spiritual father is womaniser?
I have to do what I can not only for my family and but for the many people that trust and believe in us. For the many homes that are still standing because of the work that we do.
Because yes Kingsely has his weaknesses but as a spiritual father and church leader, he is one of the best I have met. People in our church love and adore him, they trust him so much because of the help he renders and the many miracles he performs.
Taking a deep breath, I finally step out of my car and walk towards the door and knock. The door is opened by Tia’s husband. I am meeting this man for the first time today but I have seen his photos on Facebook before.
“Hello,” he says.
“Hey, I am looking for Tia.”
“And who are you?”
“Her spiritual mother. Pastor Ruth.”
“Come in,” he steps aside and I walk in. “Please take a seat, I will tell her that you are here.”
“Thank you,” I say before I sit down.
He disappears into another room and emerges a minute later,” she will join you shortly. I have to go for work.“
With that, he picks a backpack from the couch and heads out. When Tia steps out a moment later, she has a surprised look on her face.
“What are you doing here?”
“We need to talk.”
“About what? Couldn’t you have waited for me at work? Was it necessary for you to come here?”
“It was necessary.”
“Okay. You have five minutes, I don’t want to be late for work.”
“So I hear you are pregnant.”
“And how is that any of your business?”
“I don’t really care about your pregnancy. My only concern is that you got involved with my husband and I don’t want him to be implicated in this issue.”
“Who even told you about the pregnancy?”
“My husband did. Apparently you told him about it. I hope you don’t expect him to take responsibility. You are a married woman and..”
“I guess your husband tells you everything.”
“Did he also mention to you that he has been fucking me without using protection?”
“I am more than sure he has paid for the sex you have been offering him. The car, school, the money and all the stuff he has gotten you.”
“What do you really want from me pastor Ruth?”
““I want you to stay as far away from my husband as possible.”
“And what does Kingsley have to say about this?”
“He knows you are nothing but a whore and a golddigger. He doesn’t want you in his life anymore.”
“Is that so?”
“This is my only warning Tia.”
“Oh I am scared,” she laughs.
“If you keep coming after him, I will have no choice but to tell your husband about this.”
She laughs again, louder this time, “you are a coward Ruth, I know you would never do that. If Zyair finds out your husband slept with me, he will cause havoc, the media will know about this and you know what that means don’t you?”
“Name your price.”
“I don’t need your money. If Kingsely wants me to stay away from him,he will do that himself. Please leave, I want to go to work.”
“You need to resign from that job and leave the church.”
“You are joking right?”
“I am not.”
“I need that job and I am not going anywhere.”
“I think I have made myself clear here. I don’t have time to argue with you. That baby in your womb belongs to your husband and not mine, you quit your job and leave the church.”Open
Opening up my bag, I pull out a pre-written cheque and toss it onto the couch. “As far as I am concerned, we don’t have any Tia in the church. Take this money and do not bother to contact my husband again.”
I walk out and slam the door behind her before she can react.
