“Steph, I know that you have a tangible reason for paying for this hotel room. It’s not just for us to see, but for us to make love. And I’m sure you are targeting to be pregnant. I just pray it is exactly what you want because it goes in the same line as my desire” He said in his heart.
When he got home, he narrated to Tino how his day with Steph went, how they made love and all that.
“OK, is that all?” Tino asked
“Yes, that is all oo”
“But why jubilating? I thought something special happened” Tino taunted
“Tino, when girls begin acting like that, then know that they are up to something. She chose for us to meet in a hotel, why hotel in all places?”
“Tolu, don’t be deceived. Steph is a big girl, she won’t fall so cheap. If that is what you have in your mind, then forget it, she won’t fall for it”
“Tino, I am the game master. I made her believe that I am so wealthy. Trust me, she will try all means to make sure that she web me forever.”
“OK, so what are you going to do if it turns out she is pregnant?” Tino asked
“Relax boyfriend, I know how to handle it… It is actually the moment I am waiting for. I know the game to play. Since Mathew has refused to leave the city, then I will create another plan of staying away from Steph for three weeks. Atleast, after three weeks, it will be already confirmed if she is pregnant or not” Tolu said, began heading inside, laughing at his lying skills.
“I don’t think it’s something we will discus on phone, let’s meet at your house”
“At my house? But my mother is here. Don’t worry, you can tell me whatever you wish you want to tell me, I have enough airtime”
“OK, Baby, just that I missed my period”
Tolu then paused for some seconds, screaming joyfully in his heart, and said to himself: “Tolu, don’t show her you excited about it. Act as if you are shock”
“I did not hear you clearly, can you repeat yourself?”
“I said that I am pregnant and I did not intend to abort it”
“Oh no! Why now. Just why now? This is not good at all”
“What is not good?” Steph asked
“My mother wants me to marry the daughter of her best friend, and she said that, if I did not marry her, she will kill herself. And not only that, even if im to marry you because of the pregnany, I am not financially good at this period of my life, I invested a huge sum of money in something, which will start yielding profit in the next 8 months and also my mother’s health has taken a huge sums from me. To tell you the truth Steph, things are not good at all. But how did you allowed yourself to get pregnant? You should have asked me if we are ready for it yet”
“But I didn’t know that it will happen naa, it’s an accident. Please don’t tell me you will reject me, I don’t want to have a child outside wedlock…. Please Baby, don’t do this to me ” Steph pleaded, crying
And Tolu pretended to be touched by her cries.
“Oow Baby, your tear is melting my heart now. Since a baby is involved already, I have to reject my mother’s proposal, I can’t abandon you nor my child. Since things are like this now, you will have to wait for me. Just give me like 9 months, then I will have enough money to see your people and by then, my new house must have been completed, because I would want the arrival of my new wife to be in the new house and not here”
And Steph smiled that her plans had worked, Tolu had accepted her.
“But 9 months, isn’t that a long time?”
“Steph please, tell me that you can’t wait for that long time. Just tell me that you can manage things for now…. Please, say it baby…… Just say it…….. Please say it, because I don’t have money for any wedding now” Tolu seriously wished, waiting to hear Stephanie’s response regarding what he said.
To be be continued….
What do think will do in this situation?
