I Looked at him as though he was sick, i started to laugh while he remained i expressionless,"wait you're joking right, you do know what surrogacy is right?" I asked him and he still remained expressionless
"I know very well what surrogacy means and i want you to be my surrogate
"I want a child and i want you to carry it for me, for whatever amount you want" he says as though we were talking about a toy, i look at him in the eye and saw that he was serious
"Why did you choose me?,you have to be joking right" i say and he pulls out a card from his suit
"Here take this, when you are ready for serious business you can call me" he says and handed me the card
I collected it from him and saw as he pulls out wad of cash from his wallet and placed it on my bed
"Take this, i could hear your stomach rumbling from miles away so i know you haven't eaten in days, get something to eat" he attempted to leave but stopped
"And also don't contemplate returning the money, consider it a loan and i would come back to collect my money " he says and left
I was too stunned to say anything who did this man think he is uh, although I can't deny the fact that i am hungry, no scratch that i am desperately famished and starved for food
I took the money from the bed, i would pay him back whenever i have the money but for now i need food.
I wore clothes and went out to eat, this was the first time in days i was eating proper food, i even had extra to pay my rent and buy June food tomorrow. I don't care that i sound like a beggar right now but i would pay him whenever i have the money.
I walked back home a little fulfilled and slept off.
The next day i paid the landlord his money and i still had change to buy June her food, i wore my clothes feeling more determined to get a job, obviously I wouldn't give surrogacy a place in my heart to think about it. If he wanted a child he could go adopt or get married, what the actual fudge is asking me to be a surrogate for him , like carry someone's child no can't do
I took a cab to the hospital and walked straight to June's room, i saw her asleep and sighed "it must be the medication " i tell myself, i dropped the food beside and and stroked her hair i love you sis I whispered hoping she would at least hear me
I walked out of the room and went to the doctor's office, i knocked and heard a come in, i saw the doctor sitting with an X-ray in his hands. He looks up at me and smiles "Ah Aubrey, please have a sit" he tells me and i smile at him
"Good morning Doctor " i say and he greets me back
"I have good news Aubrey, we have a donor and his kidney matches well with June's own" he says and i smile brightly at him
"Are you serious sir, so can the surgery commence now?" I ask him eagerly and he nods at me
"Yes Aubrey, it can commence soon" he tells me and the smile on my face couldn't be wiped off at all
"The donor would be here tonight so make yourself available " he tells me and i nod eagerly
"Thank you very much doctor" i stood up to leave but waited
"Doctor, please who is doctor white?" I ask him and a faint smile appeared on his lips
"Doctor white is a colleague of mine but a senior doctor, why do you ask?" He asks me and i shrugged
"I heard some nurses talk about him" i say and he nods
"Alright Aubrey, i will see you later "
I left his office and walked to June's room, she was still unconscious
"June, i have good news for you, you would be cured soon and would be able to come back home with me" i say and wiped the tears that had begun to form, i also brought you food so you don't have to eat hospital food , please June you have to fight this and get better. I kissed her forehead and walked out of the room
Now there is a donor, i just need money to pay for the surgery , and getting a job seemed to be impossible at the moment, At least one problem is off my neck right now
I started again with the job hunt and was still unsuccessful in all my attempts, feeling so frustrated i sat down and buried my head on my hands
How do i get the money for this, how can i raise 400, 000$ in such a little time
How about surrogacy my subconscious told me and i shut it out completely, having a baby for someone else when I haven't even had a boyfriend or even gotten Dis-virgin no I can't do that
But you just said there's nothing you can't do for your younger sister my subconscious reminded me and i sighed, there wad nothing I couldn't do for her, but surrogacy!!
My eyes began to water and it was fast becoming an habit, i hate that i am weak i need to be strong. I have been through situations like this and came out with little scar, what is so hard about being a surrogate so my sister's life would be saved, heck I didn't go to college so i would be able to provide for her, i took up so many odd jobs just to provide for her and i also worked for Mr Perez even though i almost got raped all just to provide and now that she really needs me to take care of her, if Surrogacy is the only way for that I would do it.
My mind was made up, i am going to be a surrogate for Doctor White
I got back home and looked for the card i was given by Doctor White and i saw it, shakily I dialed the number, i heard his thick voice over the phone "Hello" i took a deep breathe"Hello Doctor White, this is Aubrey" i say and i could feel him smile over the phone"Are you ready" he asks me and i replied him"Yes i am" i tell him"Alright, meet me at Culla's Cafe" he says and hung upI looked at me phone and sighed well it's now or neverI walked out of my house and took a cab to the cafe, i got there and tried to locate him but when I didn't see him i took a sit and waited for himA waiter comes to meet me and asked if i wanted something but i said no, Ten minutes had passed and he hasn't gotten here yetMaybe he has changed his mind i sighed and looked down at the table. I heard a tap on the table and i looked up to see who it was and it was the almighty Doctor White, he sits opposite me and looks at me.
A few moments passed and my sister was wheeled out from the room into the hallway, They stopped at my front and i kissed her forehead "i love you Ju" I whispered and watched as they left, tears clouded my vision as i watched my sister being wheeled into the surgery theatre. I sat at the hallway praying and hoping everything turns out perfectlyI don't know how long i sat there for, being anxious and hopeful. My palms began to sweat so much, i had no control over it *This couple of days i have come to realize that whenever i was anxious or nervous my palms tend to sweat a lot. I sighed and walked towards the restroom, i washed my hands and went back to sit at the hallway, i wiped the sweat that was beginning to form on my forehead and i brough
"Good evening Doctor " i greeted him and sat down"Good evening Aubrey" he says and smiles at me "your sister is still under observation, but there is absolutely no need to worry, we would continue to observe her reactions throughout the night alright " he tells me"Thank you very much Doctor, I'll be on my way now" i say and stand up to leave, i walked out of the hospital. I went back to my favorite park and sat down, the last time i came here i had no means of paying my sister's surgery and now that i am here, i signed a contract to be someone's surrogate and my sister's surgery has been paid, the surgery was successful. I wiped the tears that had began to fall down my cheeksThis was actually tears of joy, these past few days has been horrible, I didn't even know how to get out of the loads of problems i was facing but here i am. I sighed and watched as the parents began to take their kids home as it was getting dark, I don't know how long i sat down th
I walked into June's room and saw exactly why it was a private room, it was so much bigger than the other rooms, very very nice.I walked over to June's bed side and held my hand still smiling *funny right* it's not as though she's awake, so why am i smiling? I don't know myself. I gently stroked her hair"JuJu it's Bre, I'm sorry I haven't been able to come here to see you till now, the doctor said I couldn't see you till today but just so you know. I kept my promise and i was waiting outside all through your surgery, the doctor says the surgery was successful and all that's needed is for you to wake up, so Ju please wake up. I want to hear your voice and also see you smile and i know that you want to see me too so i will be here patiently waiting for you"I kissed her forehead and took a sit on the chair beside her bed*would Mr obnoxious allow June to stay in his home as well, well he would he knows she is your sister and would obvi
I smiled internally and got into the car, he gets in beside me and starts driving "do i have to remind you to use your seatbelt?" He asked,still looking ahead and drivingI rolled my eyes at his annoying attitude and used my seatbelt"I saw that, and maybe you shouldn't do that again you won't like what would happen if you do" he says in a deep threatening voice and i shrunk in my sit*i told you this man had eyes behind his ear*He parked at the same block and looked at me, i rolled my eyes internally and unbuckled the seat belt, groaning internally i got out of the car and watched as he sped off*stupid Mr Obnoxious *I started to walk towards the hospital, i got to the hospital and walked straight to June's room, I opened the door and saw her awake and watching a television show"Hey Sweetie " i say and she turns to look at me"Bre Bre, i missed you" she says and i smile at her"I missed you to sweetie" i
I walked into the mansion, standing awkwardly at the entrance, the lady looks at me "come in miss" She says, still smiling at me and i walked in fully to the house*I was busy admiring the outdoor, inside the house was magnificent and so much more beautiful, definitely more beautiful than the outside *Okay this man has really good taste, everything in here was exquisite"Sorry, please where is my room?!" I asked her and she gestures for me to follow her, we walk upstairs to the hallway *Rich people really do live rich*She opens a door "This is your room ma'am, please call me if you need anything " she says and i nod"Thank you" I entered the room and closed the door*didn't i tell you this is a castle, my room looked like it was meant for a princess, never in my 22years of living have i ever though i would be somewhere like this*I dropped my bag on the bed and checked Around the room, I couldn't sit on the bed for fear
I stood outside the hospital, pacing around"Oh goodness, how would i get back when I don't even know where exactly to go too" *and i am so sure Mr Obnoxious would not offer me a ride, i guess i would be sleeping in the hospital tonight, but if Mr Obnoxious finds out*My phone started to ring and i picked it "Are you done making a fool of yourself?" He asks and i roll my eyes*I know i made a fool of myself but he didn't need to make it as clear as he did"Yes i am" i murmured on the phone"Come and meet me at the usual block, i will be there soon* He says and i breathed a sigh of relief*even though he acts like a jerk at least he is helping me out today *I walked quickly towards the block and got thereI stood there waiting patiently for him and i saw his car sped towards me and halts at my front, i got in and shut the door, i used my seatbelt and looked at him"I'm really sorry" i say and got no response
Was it possible that I am pregnant? I walked back into my room and saw Mr. White pacing around in my room "Are you okay?" He asked me worriedly and I managed a smile"I think I am fine now," I say to him and he raises his eyebrow "You think you might be pregnant right?" He says and I looked at him*Who is the doctor here again* I muttered and he looked at me"Did you say something?" He asked me and I palmed my lips together "Oopsie""We will be going for a test immediately, Get ready," He says and I looked at him"B-But" I stopped when I saw the look he was giving me"I didn't ask for your opinion, Aubrey Get ready," He says and leaves my room*I didn't ask for your opinion Aubrey, Get Ready* I mimicked him and scoffed*Annoying Mr. Obnoxious* I went back into the bathroom and brushed my teeth. After I was done I went back to my room and sat down*Now I am so much hungry than I was before*I groaned
