"When Dave? When." I ask Dave as a drop of tear come out of my eyes as Dave a nice and awesome husband sighs.
"It's OK Anny." He consoles me but I don't think I will ever be consoled.
It's been nine years that I have gotten married to Dave and I have had no child. Not even one. Dave is so nice, if it were to be some other husbands they could have gotten married to another girl.
"I have gotten married to you for nine years." I remind him resting on hips chest as he uses his hand to make me face him by turning my cheek.
"It does not matter Anny. All I know is we will have a child eventually and you will be the one to give birth to that child Anny. I promise." He hugs me as I begin to sob.
"When? When? When?" I ask Dave really hurt.
"At least the doctor said nothing is wrong with any of us. You can conceive." He smiles faintly and I am sure he is trying to console me.
"If I can just give birth to one child. Just one. I will be satisfied." I stand up from his chest and check the time. "Oh my. It's 1:56 a.m." I frown noticing the time.
"And you haven't slept." Dave reminds me then puts me to bed. "Just forget about everything and fall asleep. Forget about your troubles and it will work for you." Dave sleeps close to me as I smile.
"I love you honey. You are the best." I close my eyes.
"Wake up Anny." Dave's voice wakes me up.
"Why?." I ask him already awake but I still want to know why he woke me up.
"I am going to work." He replies me smiling.
"Work? Why?." I ask him a little annoyed.
"Why can't I go to work?." He chuckles. "You're so funny."
"But I thought you were the CEO. You were the one that built that company so you can say when you want to go to work and when you don't want to." I stand up from the bed and walk up to him standing at his front.
"Well I need to know how much they're gaining in the day." He says faintly.
"Hey, remember when I was crying yesterday because I had no child?." I sigh then smile. "I mean today."
"Yes." He replies me
"You know the reason why?." I ask him knowing he will not know the reason.
"Well,that is because you don't have my time. You just go to work in the morning and come back in the night." I turn to look away from where he is knowing really well he is going to grab me back and he did grab me back.
"But I need to work to get money for our children." He tells me grabbing me closer to him by grabbing my waist.
"How will you get a child when you don't even have time for you wife?." I ask him smiling.
"So what do you want my awesome wife?." He asks me as I put my upper teeth on my lower lip. "I know what you want honey." He kisses me on the lips.
"Why not start now?." I ask him faintly.
"OK." He pushes me to the bed as I smile.
"Come on." I lye flat on the bed.
"You did not go to work today." I remind him.
"Oh that was because my wife wanted to spend some time with her." He reminds me and I enjoyed it a lot.
"Will you go to work tomorrow?." I ask him smiling.
"Yes I will." He replies me then goes to the room.
"I will prepare lunch for you Dave!." I yell.
"OK!." He yells back.
I go to the kitchen close to the sitting room but is just blocked by a small line.
"What would you like to have Dave?." I ask him and his surprised by his silence.
Why did he not reply me? His he gone out?.
"Dave!." I call out his name.
"Dave." I call out his name again getting afraid a little.
Has he gotten kidnapped? Did he fall asleep and died in it? Oh lord,please don't take my husband away from me.
I open the door of our room gently expecting to see a kidnapper with gun and has tied Dave and I also ready to tie me but I was wrong. I saw Dave with a earpiece in his ears and dressing.
"Dave." I call out to his name but he does not answer me. It seems like he does not even know I am there.
I walk to to him and tap his shoulder then he turns to look at me.
"Oh, hi honey." He removes the earpiece from his ears. "When did you come?." He asks me making me feel so annoyed at him.
"Yesterday." I reply him looking at him very angry. "I asked you what you wanted to eat but you did not reply and made me feel so afraid. I had a lot in my head. Had my husband be kidnapped. Has my husband die..." He uses his finger to cover my mouth which I have never seen happen to me before, I have only sewn it in televisions.
"Your husband will never be taken away from you." He assures me. "Only when he is old and has grandchildren already, that is the only time he can be taken away from you. Get it?." He asks me faintly as I nod then he kisses me on the lips.
"Now what would you like to eat?." I ask him really happy.
"Some macaronis Anny." He replies me softly. "But before that, I wold like to say something to you." He sighs looking worried.
"What happened?." I ask him noticing his look.
"Well,um,you know the hospital I built?." He asks me as I nod. Well he is a doctor and has lots of hospital.
"Which one?." I ask him. How would he expect me to know the particular hospital. He has lots of em.
"The one I built last year." He sighs. "Demolished."
I gasp really socked because he spent ten million dollars on that hospital last year and he has not even gained up to ten million dollars from that hospital, he has only gained six million dollars from it and now it has demolished. He did not make a gain but just loss. Why did he even build the hospital?.
"What happened to you? Are you crying?." He asks me as I shake my head.
"I will prepare some spaghetti for you." I tell him walking away.
"But I said I want to eat macaroni." He reminds me looking at me like I committed a crime.
"Oh sorry honey." I smile nervously not sure of why.
"Are you sure everything's OK?." He asks me looking surprised at my action.
"Oh Dave love. Everything's OK." I assure him smiling.
Why am I behaving so weird? What happened? Oh I know what happened,it was because Dave's hospital fell down. He is not even as concerned as I am.
I serve the macaroni in his plate.
"Dinner is ready!." I look at the time.
Oh my, am I stupid,this is just 3:51p.m and I am saying dinner is ready.
Dave comes to the dinning table wearing a black suit and a black trouser.
"Are you going out?." I ask him looking at him from head to toe.
"I am going to my mother's place." He tells me. His mother is sixty eight years old. She gave birth to eight children. Dave is the last born. She is so unlucky.
Her first born a girl. Hally became a renounced criminal, could not do without committing a crime. The second born a boy. Jolly,dies in a car accident.
Her third born. Billy killed her husband and five police men so he was sentenced to death by hanging.
Her fourth born Hilly, a girl kidnapped a baby,killed the baby, cooked the baby and ate the baby so she was sentenced to death by hanging.
Her fifth born,Lenny. A girl , Lenny was a very brilliant girl but was killed by Darryl.
Darryl was her younger brother also a criminal.
The seventh born Jimmy. Raped his mother,his best friend. A two years old girl and a seventy years old woman so he was sentenced to death so Dave is her favorite child.
"But won't you eat?" I ask him as he just sigh.
"I am not hungry."
"OK, please greet her for me." I smile as he walks away.
"Oh,how I pity that woman." I sigh
Dave p.o.v———––––"Mom, you are so funny." I laugh coughing again, my mother who looks so young but is old already.I look at my mom from head to toe,long curly hair, well she is a mixed but my dad is a white American. The purple dress she is wearing long reaching her toe, her pink long slippers torn already which surprises me a lot."Mom, why are you wearing a torn slippers?." I ask her really annoyed because with the way she taught me she is not supposed to be putting on some torn shoes."Oh,my lovely son." She chuckles. "This shoe that is torn does not matter to me. You know,I don't care if I am poor or rich. All I want is for my son to love me. I do not care about anything else." She smiles causing an unexpected smile on my face."My dear, I forgot t
****"Dave wake up." I tap Dave and he just uses his legs to hurt me."Leave me alone honey,I do not want to go to work today.""You did not go to work yesterday and you still do not want to go to work today. You better stand up and get dressed before I pour water on you."He sits on the bed quickly."No Anny, do not pour water on me, please." He smiles but I do not care I just walk away from his sight immediately."Hey Anny." He calls me back but I do not stop and just walk away.I go to the kitchen and serve his breakfast for him."Come have your breakfast after you have taken a shower." I sit on a dinning chair and serve my food."Anny." Dave calls me then I turn to look at him and see him at my back side but not close to me."What are you doing there? And why did you call me?." I ask him still annoyed at him.
******* TWO MONTHS LATER."Hey mom, I am not going home, I must take care of you." I hold Dawn's hand. Well my parents are gone so Dave's mother is like a mother to me,she treats me like a daughter."No no no, my dear, you must go home, Dave will be waiting for you." Dawn stand up from the couch then smiles. "And you got me a maid to be taking care of me.""But I do not trust the silly maid to take care of you." I pause then look at my left and right then whisper to her ears. "Because she looks evil."Dawn chuckles."Come on my dear, Jett is a nice girl, she is loving and she takes care of me very well. I promise.""Mom, pl
Anny p.o.v——————"I am pregnant Dave, I am pregnant." I remind Dave, sure he is going to know also."I know honey and I am really glad for the both of us. You know I can not wait to tell my mother." He tells me looking more excited than I am."What! You have not told mom yet that I am pregnant?" ask him getting annoyed a little. It has been a week since I became pregnant and mother does not know that I am pregnant."Yeah." He nods slowly."Well tell her now." I order him."OK OK do not disturb me." He takes his phone from his pocket then I hold his phone. "What happened?" He asks me.
Three months later.—————————"Dave, I can not believe it, I am five months pregnant, it remains four months for me to give birth I am the happiest woman in the world.""I know, I wonder if it is a girl or a boy, I just can not wait for the baby to come out." Dave adds."Dave." I stand up from the couch and sit on his laps."Dave, would you not go to work today?" I ask him as he shakes his head then I sigh "You have not gone to work for three months and you still do not want to go to work today.""But, I have to take care of you." Dave tells me as I shake my head."I can take care of my self, I am not a baby, I am
"What happened?" I ask her as she clears the tears in her eyes.*********Ding Dong* the door bell rings as I quickly run to open the door sweating."Dave!" I hug him with so much excitement and fear in me."What happened?" He asks me as I give him a fake smile."Nothing, why did you ask?" I ask him as he comes inside then I close the door. "I prepared hominy grits for you.""okay, I will have some. Thanks." He walks slowly. "But I will have to take my bath first.""Okay." I smile nervously. "Take your bath.""Anny." Dave calls me as I look at him more afraid than I was before.
*******"Anny I am sorry for what I said." I apologize to Anny as she looks at me like she will never be able to forgive me. "I mean it is explicable.""Nothing is explicable! you insulted me when I was in the hospital and you think you can go freely now. I can not forgive you." She stands up from the chair."Come on." I stand up from the chair too and holds her hand."I can't forgive you.""What do you want me to do for you?" I ask her willing to do anything she says."Nothing." She surprise me by that word."Nothing?" I ask her looking shocked."Yeah nothing. I don't need anything from you, what do you take me for?" She asks me causing me think she has taken things the wrong way, maybe she does not understand what I am trying to say."Anny." I sigh then hold her hand. "I have apologized to you, what else do you want from me?"
"Dave, what is wrong with you?" Anny asks me maybe she has noticed the big smile on my face.I ignore her then walk away so happy. Why am I so happy? Is it because my mother just took her medicine?
