(A Love Triangle)

Opeyemi Ojerinde Akintunde

The pain I was feeling was second to none as it felt like someone was forcing a long stick down my throat. F was an emotional and physical experience that had PAIN in CAPITALS. I had paid the sum of N10,000. The nurse who was an excuse for a nurse, was so unprofessional. She had only one more staff present in the hospital that could best be referred to as a mortuary. The odor oozing out of the hospital was worse than that of a public toilet. The nurse had taken me to a room they thought was a theatre, I was told to lie down on a makeshift bed with my two legs spread in a raised up position. I looked sideways and saw her taking out some long slim rods which varied in sizes. The next thing that happened was pain. Oh my God! She inserted the long rod into me and I started screaming .She told me to keep quiet in a very loud angry voice. She kept turning and twisting the rod… Oh my goodness! What an irony, the same way I spread my legs in s*xual excitement with Papa was the same way I was spreading my legs in pains as someone was thrusting down different iron rods into me to remove It must have lasted 5-10minutes. I was cleaned up and told to leave. As I stood up to leave, I saw the nylon bag that was filled with blood. YOU JUST WASTED A LIFE I heard it. I heard those words loud and clear. I turned to see who spoke but there was no one. I knew that must have been God. I immediately became afraid. A sudden fear gripped my heart. My phone immediately started ringing.

And if it means us getting married, I will know it is my cross,. been pulled off my face. .

I saw a revelation where I was told that my first fruit is a destiny child to usher in wealth for me but Timi you have terminated my first fruit.wailing. We both started crying on the phone, but my relief from the pain below my belly was short lived as I heard the angry nurse saying… Hey, hey… you need he said as she was pulling me from the chair. It felt like she was literally pushing me out of their hole called a hospital. I had a high pain threshold, so I groaned in pain silently as my lower abdomen was hurting on my way back to the hostel. After Papa had dropped the call in tears, I had called him repeatedly but he did not pick up. I laid down on my bed groaning and weeping. . I was trying to play God, I was trying to find myself a better place where I could drop all my baggage and live in peace, . No… I have lost Papa,. You should have left the pregnancyI said to myself. . I wept, thinking how things did not go as planned and how I had wasted a life…
