A Tale With My Lecturer season 2 Episode 13 & 14

Episode 13
I roughly grabbed Comfort, opened my apartment and dragged her inside.
“what are you doing here?, how many people saw you?, why are you so keen in destroying my life?” i asked angrily. She drew back and shrugged.
“my parents threw me out, i have no where else to go. Don’t you see my condition?” she muttered, touching her stomach and smiling confidently.

I bit my lips as i stared at her with rage. I was so confused on what to do with her. Her presence was very much unexpected.

“i feel like killing you right now” i breathed.

“c’mon you very much know that i’m very useful to you alive than dead. So stop the wishes, let’s talk something better” she said with a mockery tone that pushed my patience to the edge. I grabbed her by the throat, pushing her against the wall and tightening my grip as if i was about strangling her to dead. She tried to struggle but my grasp only got stronger. Tears quickly fell from her eyes, forcing me to release my hold a bit which gave her the opportunity to breathe.
“i have lost everything already. Killing you won’t change a thing” i threatened murderously.

“Everyone is being so hard on me. My parents, my friends, your wife. Even you. We made this mistake together. I’m also a human being. I have feelings. I want a good life” she sobbed.

“will killing me turn your life around. Will it make you happy?. I’m pregnant. I’m sick. I’m tired of life. I haven’t even eaten since morning. You are not the only one that lost something” she added with a broken voice, leaving me with no choice than to release my hold on her. I breathed deeply and backed her.
“where is your wife?” she asked softly.

“she’s staying with her parents” i answered.
“i don’t mind being your house girl, so long as i’m with you. You are the father of this child i’m carrying. And you very much know you have some roles to play for me and the baby. It’s not all about money” she added.

“you aren’t staying in this house. I will get a good self contained room for you. At least i can still afford it” i breathed coldly. She said nothing, instead went and settled down on my couch. An action that provoked me once again.
I left the house for her and went in search of some estate agents i had their contacts but unfortunately none of them had any self contained room available. The one i managed to see was in campus vicinity. A place that wasn’t favourable to me. I came back home late in the evening very tired and aghast.

7:10pm, Caleb’s Apartment
I returned home to find Comfort in the kitchen. My stomach growled as i perceived the aroma of fried plantain and well cooked rice. At first i stared at her angrily but couldn’t get myself to shout at her because i was very hungry.

“i’m sorry for being in your wife’s kitchen. I couldn’t find any prepared food, so i decided to prepare one” she explained as soon as she noticed my presence. But before i could get to say anything, my phone rang and it was Jessica calling.

“hey my love what’s up. You promised to call me when you get back to the city but you didn’t. Is everything alright?” she asked.
“i’m sorry my dear. I’m just getting home now. My car broke down on the way. Faulty gear box” i lied.
“hmmm, you sound so tense. Are you okay?” she asked.

“yes i’m fine” i replied nervously.
“my love i know you very well. You are not sounding fine. Did anything happen in the village. Are you hiding something from me?” she asked once again, forcing me to lie one more time. An action i regretted from the bottom of my heart.
I felt telling my wife about Comfort’s presence in the house was a very bad idea because it would definitely raise her blood pressure and leave her totally down and sick. Something her doctor advised against. Moreover i wasn’t going to allow Comfort to stay more than two days with me. So i never saw it necessary troubling the poor lady with such news.

Unfortunately things never went as i wanted. I woke up in the middle of the night to hear Comfort coughing and calling my name. I ran to the guest room to see her vommitting. Her body temperature very high.

Episode 14
“hey what’s going on?” i asked fearfully, holding Comfort with great care.
“i don’t just know. I suddenly feel sick and awful” she answered weakly, throwing up once again.
“oh dear lord save me” i prayed, clueless on what next to do as i watched over her.

“don’t be scared. It isn’t the first time this is happening to me. I will be fine. Tomorrow you will help take me to a hospital. Just hold my hand tightly” she begged.
I had no choice than to sit with her all through the rest of the night. I just couldn’t believe all that was happening were real. I just couldn’t wait to wake up from the terrible nightmare.

Early the next day we headed to a hospital Comfort begged me to take her to. A private clinic located at the center of the town. In no time a very young doctor examined her, ran some tests and invited me to his office.

“your wife immune system is very weak. The blood in her body is equally very low. She told me herself that she’s been taking some medications before moving in to live with you. I have written out a new set of drugs for her. I will also instruct her on how to take them. However the most important thing is her life first before the baby and she really needs lots of care, good food and constant medical check up. She also has to register for Ante-natal here. I would have advised you leave her behind in my clinic but the bill will be very high because she still has some months to go before putting to bed. So take her home, make sure you get someone to assist her with house chores, if possible invite her mother and also remember to bring her here at least three times every month for check up” he said to me.
“she isn’t my wife. Doctor no” i stammered without thinking straight. The doctor gave me a very curious look.

“what?, then who is she to you?” he asked. I instantly regained my senses.
“never mind doctor. She will be well looked after” i said halfheartedly, got up, left his office and went outside to call my mother, almost crying as i narrated everything to the old lady.

The painful part of it all was that i was being left with no choice than to take care of the obnoxious girl without the knowledge of my wife, which really was a big disaster waiting to happen.

“that’s terrible news son, but are you sure the girl and the doctor aren’t trying to play smart on you?” my mother asked, putting the idea into my head but i quickly shook it off.

“i doubt it mum. I saw her vomit with my own eyes and i don’t think she’s faking it” i answered.
“fine take her home. I will be in the city early tomorrow. I’m coming to stay with you and see things for myself” she promised, leaving a strong joy in my heart.

I finally paid the hospital bills and took the sick girl home. As i drove into the compound that late afternoon, i spotted my mother in law’s car parked in front of the house which left me shocked and surprised. I quickly stopped my car and made to reverse and drive away but unfortunately the old woman emerged from the house that very moment with my wife’s bag on her hand. She froze with shock on sighting Comfort and I.
