WHEN LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH.
James went with some police officers to Mirabel’s house to arrest her but she was not at home.
Her place was locked up.
They left immediately after gathering information from her neighbors who said she has not being around since yesterday.
James was determined to make sure Mirabel rot in prison after what she did to his wife who doctor confirmed to be in a critical condition
James drove back to the hospital to go and check on his wife.
Michelle was put in the emergency ward ever since yesterday that she was rushed in. she loosed lots of blood and needed quick attention due to her condition.
James was praying as he drove back to the hospital,his heart was so heavy. He punched hard on the hospital wall while waiting for any update from the doctor concerning his wife.
He couldn’t sit still as he walk round the corridor.
He kept muttering a silent prayer that nothing should happen to his wife and their baby.
“God please pardon my wrongs and save my wife and the unborn child, don’t allow the enemy to prevail…please save Michelle and the baby…please God…please…
He was still praying when he saw the doctor who was previously attending Michelle, who also happen to be their family doctor. He was walking down the corridor with a straight face, pulling off his hand gloves as if he quietly walk down. James breathed deeply and rushed to the doctor.
“Doctor Ken…my wife…what of my wife…how is my wife…doctor please answer me, what is going on since yesterday…no news. All I get to hear is that she is being attended to…she is in the emergency ward…she is in a critical condition…she is this and that. Nobody is telling what I want to hear and I’m not even allowed in there…what is all this…tell me doctor what is the present situation…please I don’t want anything to happen to my wife or the baby…I beg of you…
The doctor gently tapped James behind the back before saying
“Calm down James, just relax. Your wife lost lots of blood. Her condition is complicated which you already know…we tried all we could to save her and also the baby…hmmm. Your wife had a high risk of pregnancy… it was a threat to her and the fetus, we dictated the risk in time when she was rushed down here several weeks ago and we recommended an early and regular prenatal care and also told her to stay away from certain things of which she did obediently. Michelle do not need anything hard, she doesn’t even need much stress just to avoid complications which may arise and we gave a strict warning concerning it all but is unfortunate that this happened…
James was not taking it anymore, he was going crazy with every of Doctor Ken’s word. He began to shake. His heart was drumming with speed as fear griped him.
“Doctor Ken, what exactly are you saying…I don’t understand all this long talk…please…tell me that Michelle is fine…please…tell me nothing happened to her…tell me what I need to here…please…don’t do this to me doctor…what of my wife…what of my wife doctor Ken…
James was holding the doctor, his hands kept shaking. The doctor asked him to calm down
“Just calm down James…Michelle is fine…your wife is alright…she is fine…please calm down
James breathed deeply as he held his chest with his hand. He tried to calm down as he asked the last dreaded question
“…And the baby…what about the baby doctor…?
The doctor shakes his head, he held James shoulder and said
“She lost the baby…I’m sorry…really I am. I know how much you and your wife wanted this child… Michelle has to keep away from certain things for the pregnancy sake and she never missed her prenatal check-up. I’m glad that your wife is alright… Michelle is still recuperating… and will need time to heal both emotional and also from the injury…is quiet sad that this have to happen but you can always try again…you and Michelle should keep trying and she will conceive another child…I’m sorry…
The doctor tapped James on his shoulder before walking away, leaving him to battle with his thought.
James was speechless, he was relieved on hearing that Michelle was alright. that information alone matters to him greatly. Michelle will be so broken right now and he wish he can see her.
Will she ever forgive him for making her to lose the baby that she has always wanted?
They have being so happy the first day that Doctor Ken gave them the result of the pregnancy.
They have happily searched out babies names, both for a girl and a boy. It was a joyful moment for two of them as they looked forward to welcoming their child when the time is due.
How will he explain that all this deadly drama was all because of him? Mirabel has finally destroyed him, Mirabel has succeeded in wrecking his home, how do he make amend and correct his wrongs.
He was warned by their pastor not to punch a hole on the wall of his marriage or invite the devil to his home and he has unknowing created a deep hole in the wall of his marriage. How do he make amend, how can he cement back the hole that he created on the wall, there will always be a wall crack even if he covers up the hole. The crack on the wall will always remind them of what they lost.
James quietly walked to the ward were Michelle was placed, he peep through the window and saw his wife sleeping quietly.
He wish to go in there and hold her hands, reassuring her everything will be fine but Michelle may not want to see him
Doctor Ken has said she needed rest without disturbance, she needs to heal emotionally and internal.
All James wanted so much is to go in there and ask for her forgiveness.
“Will she ever forgive me, she lost the pregnancy all because of me, if I have not mingled with that jezebel called Mimi all this wouldn’t have happened….God, I’m a terrible person. How do I make all this to go away…how do I undo what i have done….i wish is all a night mare…that this was not happening for real. God…please don’t allow anything to happen to my marriage…I truly love my wife and I regret everything I did….oh God…please help me….
James silently cried.
Mirabel was later searched out from her hiding place, she was arrested and put in cell as she awaits her judgement.
She cried and pleaded that it was a mistake, she did not mean to hurt Michelle.
No matter how long Mirabel plead no one listened to her. She was put behind bars pending when her case will be judged and a sentenced will passed according to her offence.
One week later Michelle was discharged from the hospital and James drove her home
She was quiet throughout and refused to look at James who did not know the right word to use in consoling her.
Michelle wanted to be left alone and James sensed it and decided to keep his mouth shut and not complicate things any further.
They remained quiet as he drove her home.
