FINAL EPISODE OF BEHIND THE SMILE.
WRITTEN BY AMAH’S HEART.
Benny sat beside his wife who lay on the hospital bed.
This was the evening of the fifth day, Benny was wearing a hand cast to hasten up his shoulder healing due to the bullet bruise.
He was asked not to stress the hand and was put on a cast.
He sat beside Dorcas who was sleeping but a little touch from Benny woke her up
“Ohh… I’m sorry honey, I didn’t mean to wake you. I tried to be gentle and quiet as possible while putting back a strand of your hair. I…”
Dorcas was grinning “is fine, I’m tired of sleeping all day Benny. I still have nightmares of that dungeon. Despite is more than four days already. I don’t know why I’m still being locked in there in my dream. I feel so much relieved seeing you here… finally. Being alive and free means everything to me. I will never ..ever take it for granted. I don’t care about what you did to get me out but I’m grateful. Thank God that Bianca didn’t kill us all before the police arrived. You know watching you jump in the way and take the bullet meant for me, is one kindness that I will never forget for the rest of my life. I love you”
Benny bent over and kissed her forehead, she continued
“..When am I supposed to be discharged? I have been sleeping for days now, Wake up, eat and sleep back…is getting really tiring. What did the doctors say…i really miss home. I want to go home. Have you heard any updates from Geni, How is she…?
Benny told her that Geni was recuperating fine. They have been able to take out the bullet, although the bleeding was much but she will be alright.
Benny informed Dorcas that the police said that Bianca awaken and was screaming for help. They wanted the doctors to attend to her and see if she can be totally revived so that she can face her trial and receive the judgement of the law but just when they were about to do that she gave up.
All the men working for her have been apprehended, including the fake police men.
They will be sentenced once the trial is over.
“…Many things has happened for the past four days that you have been here. doctor said you need adequate rest and shouldn’t be disturbed with any of the updates. that is more reason I haven’t been able to say anything to you whenever you are awake. I allow you to freshen up and return to your bed rest. But the good news is that you will be discharged tomorrow, you will continue your bed rest at home. The doctor also said that once you’re fully awake, he has something to tell us. I don’t know what that is but I hope is not something that will complicate our lives further because I’m already exhausted from this whole trouble. Maybe I should inform the...”
As he was still talking the doctor walked in.
“Oh wow, is good to see that you are looking far better and radiant Mrs George. You’re a strong woman and your husband here haven’t left your side. Even after I asked him to go home and get some rest that you are in good hands and will be well cared for… he refused. Well, I have two news, the first news is good and which is you will can even go home today if you wish because we have checked through everything and you are fine madam…”
Benny was unstable, he was afraid of what the doctor will say next.
“So, if this is the good news what is the bad news then. I’m already impatient and scared to my pants. I hope is not something very serious doctor”?
Benny said while standing on his feet and facing the doctor.
Dorcas was relaxing back calmly on her hospital bed without saying a word.
“Calm down Prof Benny, I never said it was a bad news. I only said I have two news. The second news is that the baby is fine. The pregnancy is…
Benny blinked several as he asked the doctor to stop.
“Whaa… what baby, pregnancy are you talking about? What’s going…I don’t understand doctor…?
He looked from the doctor to his wife and back at the doctor, more confused.
“Oh… you’re not aware? I guess she did not tell you. I’m sorry I have to be the one to break the good news to you. But your wife is already 7weeks gone. We have double checked due to past records of miscarriage and the pregnancy is progressing fine. We will do all we can as usual Prof…”
Benny breathed loudly, he scoffed at the doctor’s last word as the doctor walked out.
Benny turned to his wife with a questioning look.
“Did you know? how…I don’t seem to understand what exactly is going on. Are you pregnant?
Dorcas made a sad face before saying
“I wasn’t sure initially Benny. I felt the symptoms but at a point I started having doubts. And I don’t want to get my hopes or yours up. And with my health history I wasn’t sure pregnancy will survive in the state I was put in. I’m shocked that something is still in here. I stopped having signs after few days and was even thanking God because Bianca would have harvested the foetus out of my womb with her bare hands. I fear that lunatic weirdo… she has no human blood flowing in her.. probably is alien fluid that’s in her body. Well, I don’t know how I should react to the news of the baby Benny. I don’t know if I should jubilate or be sad. I really don’t know…”
Benny was quiet too. He turned over to her and took her hands into his.
“This came more like a shock honey, I wasn’t expecting this now and another thing, we were only together during the anniversary night…. just once surprisingly. that’s quiet a shock. But God’s ways are higher than ours and so is his plans. The last pregnancy would have made it to term but the devil fought real hard to destroy our home and lives. our little angel paid a big price for it. Let’s join our faith together this time, nothing and I mean absolutely nothing will happen that will take this seed out of your womb until the set time for him or her to come fort. I’m actually very excited honey…I can’t really explain the exact way I feel. This is God… crowning our efforts with blessing. God is good honey…so good. you may not feel it or understand it now but is going to come to past this time. We will carry our baby in flesh and blood. Trust me please, try and do that this time and together we will pray for this child until we can finally hold her…it could be him but I want a baby girl first…”
Dorcas gave a sweet laughter. Benny has a way of getting to her with his words.
She felt so blessed to have him.
Despite the past disappointment Benny never stop believing. During each miscarriage he still reassures her that the next one will stay.
Is been years of trying and Benny never stopped believing and she rely so much on his strength and his strong belief in God.
Is his faith towards things that kept pushing her forward. She was not just lucky but blessed to have him.
She was moved to tears as she listened to her husband.
Emotions weighs into her heart, She straightened and peck Benny on his cheek.
“,I trust you honey, I will never doubt you ever again. It was my doubts and mistrust that led us into the devil’s awaiting nest. I’m sorry… forgive me please. I promise to be a better wife to you and when our baby finally comes I will do all I can to be a better mother to him or to her…so help me God…”
She placed her hand on her chest and said the last part. It got Benny laughing.
He bent over and kissed her amidst tears
He had never heard his wife say such before with so much faith, and hearing those words means everything to him.
They later went home. Weeks later Geni was alright and resumed school.
Dorcas and Benny took care of her fees and got a place for her to stay.
They also gave her money to support her Mom and siblings.
Geniva was very grateful. It was a big miracle and she felt so free like her normal self now that Bianca was no more.
Jessica, Bianca’s father’s wife was contacted and she had alot of terrible things to say about Bianca. She also knew that Bianca has a hand in her husband’s death but there was no evidence to nail her.
Bianca had try hurting her and her kids, that was the major reason she decided to let her have more than half of her husband’s empire. Life was far more important to her than riches.
She was rather relieved that nemesis caught up with Bianca.
Dorcas resumed office, Benny encouraged her to go as he assured her that God was watching over their little one.
When Dorcas pregnancy became very obvious, she could no longer go to work.
Anita makes it her duty to come see and update her at home.
Dorcas was able to carry her pregnancy to term and gave birth to a baby boy.
Benny was overjoyed. He forgot ever saying he wanted a girl. What mattered most was the Joy of finally holding a baby, his very own baby in his arms.
Dorcas was speechless as her baby was placed in her arms. She was a mother for real after so many years.
Natural conception and she carried the pregnancy to term without much trouble like the past.
Her Joy was overflowing.
It was a moment she had so much looked forward to within the years and finally it has become an answered prayer.
After two years passed by, Dorcas conceived again.
She later gave birth to a baby girl who was so beautiful.
Her beauty radiates like the sun.
People left her original name and calls her Beauty instead.
She has all her dad’s features.
Benny and Dorcas were very satisfied with their two heavenly gifts.
Dorcas became more strengthened in the Lord.
She was a mother to children not just one child.
Indeed the blessings of the Lord makes rich and there is no sorrow added to it.
Someday they will get to tell their children the story of how God rescued them from the captive of the wicked but until then they will continue to serve and worship He who rescued them from the den of Satan, removed shame and reproach from their lives and gave them a new name.
