Chapter Twenty one 🔮
“I don’t understand Josh, where are you going to, huh? “I asked.
“California, but I don’t know how long. Lisa, can you cope without me? “He asked.
My eyes welled up but I tried not to cry.
“Yes, you can go. “I replied.
I reached for zac and touched his forehead, it was warm. I took the bowl with water and towel and went to the kitchen.
I was just sad. Am now gonna handle everything alone. I hated this idea of having a baby from the start.
Well, I just had to deal with it since the baby is already here.
I started making dinner with hot tears streaming down my cheeks.
After we all had dinner. I put zac to bed before going to my room.
I saw Josh busy with his laptop. I slowly laid beside him just seeing his back…
🎵The smell of your skin lingers on me now
🎵 you’re probably on your flight back
🎵 To your hometown
🎵 I need some shelter of my own protection, baby
To be with myself and center
Clarity, peace, serenity
🎤i hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
Its personal,myself and I
We’ve got some straightenin’ out to do
And am gonna miss you
Like a child misses their blanket
But I’ve got to get a move on with my life
Its time to be a big girl now
And big girls don’t cry
I tucked myself in. Josh saw me and shut his laptop and joined me in the bed.
“Flight’s tomorrow “he said.
“Yes whatever “I said turning to my side.
Josh tried to hold me but I shoved it off.
“Am sorry “he muttered in my ears.
I went to sleep leaving the world behind.
………. Next day
Josh was all packed up and ready to go. He carried zac and kissed his forehead.
“I’ll miss you “he said to him.
I took zac from his hands and headed for the door.
Josh rolled his luggage to the door. He left and I shut the door.
I dropped zac on the floor and stooped as tears flowed uncontrollably.
I bent my head and wept. Zac said something and I raised my eyes to see him crawling…!
Zac was crawling.
I was amazed cause I hadn’t noticed this since.
I took zac into my arms and showered kisses on his face. He just made me smile. He struggled to get down and I let him.
He began crawling round the living room making car sounds. So… He thinks his a car.
I played with him for a while before he became hungry and I fed him and the next thing was him sleeping.
I was bored and all I had as company was the TV.
…………………….. A month later
Zac tried again and he stood perfectly this time, my lips went agape! My own baby is standing already..
I took photos of him to capture the moment.
My phone rang and I checked the caller, it was Josh. I picked it up and put it in speaker.
“Where are you jerk?! “I yelled.
He promised to be home before lunch and his still no where to be seen.
“I swear am very close to you mote than you can imagine. “He said.
I got excited.
“In our bedroom “he replied.
“What should I do to you if I get there and you’re not there? “I asked
“You’ll cut the sex and we’ll just do foreplay “he said.
“Who’s having sex with you?? “.
I disconnected the call and carried zac and we headed upstairs.
I walked into my room. I dropped zac to stand on his own. I looked around.
“Josh? “I called.
I went into the bathroom and looked around, I returned back to the room. I was startled but happy.
“Josh! “I yelled and hugged him. He had zac in his other hand.
“Lisa, what did you feed zac, he’s standing “Josh said.
“A whole month Josh, you’re so cruel “I said.
“Don’t worry Lisa, I’ll make it up to you tonight. “Josh grinned at me.
I wiped the tear in my eye.
I went to my bedroom. Josh was unpacking his box. When he saw me, he grinned.
“Stop being so dirty Josh… Will you ever get matured? “I asked.
“I don’t know. Come here “he said.
I came to where he was reluctantly and he pulled me to sit beside me.
“Who are you to lecture me about my sex life huh? “He asked and began tickling me.
I began laughing in no time.
“Who am I… Am your wife”I managed to sat in between laugh.
“Lisa, do you remember what happened the second time we met? “Josh asked and I nodded. He stopped tickling me.
“Some guys were trying to rape me that night, I was coming from a party as school “I said.
“I never told you this but, after I saved you from them, I wanted to rape you too “he said and I laughed.
“Why didn’t you do it? ”
“Cause there was no bed around “he whispered in my ear and I laughed.
“Enough dirty talk, if zac ever grows to become a playboy… I’ll end you “I said.
Josh laughed and carried me to the bed and dropped me. He laid beside me.
He kissed me and held on to me.
As he proceeded, the doorbell rang from downstairs.
I got up but he held me back.
“don’t go, let’s continue ”
My eyes widened. I ran out of the room.
I opened the door.
It was Barbie! Oh Jo, she’ll kill me cause I haven’t called her since and worse, she knows nothing about the baby.
