Chapter Twenty two
Lisa’s pov cont.
“Barbie, what are you doing here… By this time of the night ?! “I asked.
“Am a zombie 👽 Here to eat your brain….. Now Move! “She yelled coming in with her luggage.
“Don’t be so loud “I said.
We both went upstairs. Josh came out and on seeing Barbie, he frowned.
“Josh! Long time no see “she said.
Josh smiled dryly and went back into the bedroom.
I pulled Barbie to the room where she stayed before.
She dropped her luggage on the bed and we sat together.
“Its been long Lisa “she said.
“Yea, why do you like night travel so much, huh? “I asked.
“… I just like seeing the world at night. Suits me better. “She said.
“Lisa… “She stared at me, my tummy to be precise.
I became nervous. Barbie observes too much.
“Lisa, your tummy looks… Bigger than usual, not that you got a pot belly or anything… Its just… Different like you gave birth or something “Barbie said and threw her face away removing her shoe.
Guilt was eaten me up.
“When you give birth to your baby, I’ll surely be the GM (god mother) “Barbie said.
I gulped. I have to tell her.
“YYou are.. Because… ”
The door opened interrupting me. I turned to see Josh leaning by the door.
“Its damn late, you can chat tomorrow, Lisa, let’s go to bed “he said.
I wanted to object but Barbie herself agreed saying she was tired.
I got up and followed Josh to our bedroom.
“What did she say she want this time? “Josh asked as we got under the bedsheet.
“I don’t know, but its good she’s here “I muttered.
Josh pulled me to himself.
“Where were we? “He asked. He placed a kiss on my lips and the next thing we did was sweet and sensual.
I turned severally On the bed.
Where was this cry coming from? I tried covering my ears but I was sure the cry continued.
Grumpily, I stood up from the bed and left my room following the cries…
It was that of a baby… But not new born.
I opened the door where the cry was coming from and walked into the room, it was a baby boy crying.
I carried him scared and confused.
I looked into his face …he looked so much like Josh. But also features of Lisa were also noted.
But… Lisa and Josh Don’t have a child yet. Lisa didn’t tell me about him.
Is he adopted?
The baby stopped crying and stared blankly at my face.
Lisa fooled me. She didn’t want me to know about her child…
I rolled severally as I finally forced my eyes open from my sweet sleep. Josh was beside me sleeping. We slept pretty late last night.
I was naked so I had to wear my clothes before leaving the room. I went straight to Zac’s room.
I went in,…. No Zac!
I looked around his entire room but he wasn’t there. I went Barbie’s and she wasn’t in her room.
I went back to our bedroom and dragged Josh up but he was to lazy to wake up.
“Wake up Josh! “I yelled.
He sat up looking tired.
“What’s up wifey? “He asked.
“Zac’s not in his room and am worried. “I said rubbing my palms together.
Josh stood up and wore his shirt. We both went downstairs.
“What if he crawled out? “He asked.
“Am not sure, his bed is high for him to get down from. “I replied.
We got to the kitchen looking around.
Barbie stood there slicing an onion which was starting to have an effect on my eye.
“Don’t you think its too early to mess this house up? “Josh asked her.
Barbie scoffed and continued.
“Why are you guys creeping around? What are you looking for? “She asked.
My lips stuttered as I tried to speak. Hiw do I tell her I kept the truth from her.
“Barbie, uh.. Did you see any baby boy? “I asked lowly.
“A baby boy?? Where did the baby come from? “She questioned.
Josh ruffled his hair.
“Lisa, I’ll go look for zac in the rooms.. “he said leaving already.
“What baby Lisa? “She asked again.
“Barbie… Am sorry I didn’t tell you before now… The baby boy, is my baby. I had him last year. “I confessed shamfully.
“His name is Zac… Josh made me promise not to tell anyone from family about him “I said.
Barbie rolled her eyes.
She left the kitchen and returned with Zac. I hugged Zac happily.
“Thanks Barbie “I said.
“But am still going to be the god mother, I deserve the title. “She said and I agreed.
Barbie and I were in serious boredom though we had each other.
“Let’s go clubbing Lisa, just tonight “she offered.
I shook my head.
“Am not permitted to, Josh will kill me “I said sinking back at the couch.
“But you’re no longer a nursing mother, I’ve been watching you since today and you haven’t breastfed Zac once “she said.
“Yea, I was breastfeeding him last week and he bit me, he kept biting me till he stopped taking my nipple into his mouth, seems like he had out grown it so I stopped. He’s almost 9 months old so its proper “I said.
“That’s good, so no excuses! Zac just slept off and am sure he won’t be awake till 8, Josh is gonna be back in few minutes anyway, so what’s the harm? “Barbie said convincingly.
I was marveled at how correct she was.
What’s the harm?
I’ve been cooked up at home , a night would make me feel alive. Barbie and I rushed upstairs and wore a simple dress to match.
What’s the harm?…
