The Open Secret
Tina’s POV. (Point of view)
I sat down and was entirely busy on my phone, when my husband came in.
“Honey good evening”
I greeted him, and he responded by giving me a kiss… If you ask me, I would tell you that I have a perfect husband, to me, he is everything that God could offer, so faithful, peaceful, loving and also God fearing.
Its barely one year we got married, I have nothing to worry about except that am yet to conceive, its not too long but am really worried about it because I know that a healthy man and woman have 98 percent chances of making a baby, why is mine so different, I love babies a lot and I am already running out of patience.
“Thats really great, congratulations to her” he said not being much concerned.
“I wish I can carry mine soon ” I said and he looked at me.
“I have told you to stop wishing, we will equally carry our own at the due time” he said and that is what he will always say, it never bothers him a bit.
“I know, but darling, do you think we are alright, healthy woman and man finds it easy to make babies” I said.
” you forgot something, God is the giver of children ” he said again.
“I know, but I suggest we visit the hospital to check our selves, pls” I pleaded.
“Its that all you want? ” he asked again.
“Yes darling ”
I said in a hurry before he changes his mind.
He has never agree to that, not even for one day, I wonder why he is so stubborn about this, he dont even worry about it as his fellow men will do.
“Alright, we will go, so that I can rest for you”he said and left the living room.
Frank POV (point of view)
I sat on the bed immediately I entered into our bedroom, how do I even cope forever with my wife disturbance and worries, knowing fully that I can not impregnate a woman.
I have decided to keep this secret forever but where will I start, this woman is so desparate to have a baby, oh God why me, why did I found myself in this situation.
I love my wife so much and if she ever finds out my situation, she will probably leave me.
“What do I do now? ” I asked my self..
“Its like I have to go and see my personal doctor, he is the only one that knows my problem,.
I have to bribe him, never to tell us the real test result, maybe he have to say it the other way around.
Like indicating that its my wife that have a little problem, not me”
I was still talking to my self, when my wife enters,.
“Are you alright? She asked.
“Yes am okay, we will be going for the test next week,. We will do the test at St. Christopher hospital, where my best friend works. He will carry out the test” I said.
” hmmm, honey, why st Christopher? You really like that place, but I accept, all I want its for us to go for the test. ” she replied.
“Let me get your food” she concluded and left.
. Doctor Charles POV.
I was listening to my best friend who was sitting next to me in my office, I wonder why he wanna keep such secret, the truth is that because of his situation, he won’t be able to impregnate a lady unless by the grace of God, both of us have been fighting this situation to know if we can heal him but all to no avail.
“My friend, why do you want to keep such secret, dont you think, she will find out one day. ” I asked
“It is in our hands, please Charles, I will not like to loose my wife because of this, let’s hide it, just tell us that she is having a little infection that can be cured soon and she will conceive.
Please, secure my home, am begging you” he said.
“Hmmmmm, this is too hard to do, for me to lie over the real result is too bad, but you are my closest friend and you have done a lot for me, I will do that but dont give up, keep fighting against your infidelity so that one day, all this will be a story. ”
I finally accepted but really felt guilty, am sure that mrs. Tina is very much healthy, and fodging the result is a sin against human being and God.
I gave a sigh of relief immediately he left my office and I took a second glance at the cheque of one million naira he left on my table, he bribed me with the money.
my friend Frank is such a wealthy and a kind man, I wonder why bad thing always be fall the good ones, he so much deserve to have children but we dosent have to question the almighty God.
