Mother said.

“Yes mother!

“How could you Joe do this to me, why?

I cried out.

“Joe you have the guts to planned this unspeakable thing to the woman you married, why?

Justin shouted.

“I don’t want Jenny to find out that I was impotent so I decided to collaborate with Jay into raping her and she will be impregnated and I will owe the child but when I find out that the result given to me saying that I was impotent was a fake one so I decided to abort the pregnancy by all means, I did all sort of things to get the baby out but all to no avail so I decided to divorced her since she refused to abort the pregnancy”

He said.

“This is wickedness, you are heartless and you too deserve to be punish for this abominable act, Justin call the cops”

Mother shouted.

I was shocked, I never knew that will marry someone that will be capable of doing such thing to me.

Few minutes later, the cops landed and we explained everything to them, they were arrested.

I decided to go back and clear my head off.

Finally justice was served.

One faithful day, I got a call from the hospital that my father was admitted that my attention is needed urgently.

I rushed immediately to the hospital.

He apologized to me for not accepting me when I needed him the most.

I forgave him, he is my father so I bear no grudges on him.

Few minutes later, he kicked the bucket.

I wept and wept bitterly, my mother and father are all gone.

He willed all his inheritance to me as his only heir.


It has been one month now since Jenny left the house and I have not been myself, I tried to reach her but all to no avail.

I don’t know where to find her.

I missed her so much, when she left the house I felt like half of me has also left.

I think about her day and night.

“Son I know you love her so much then why won’t you go and get her back”

Mother said.

“Mother are you being serious?

I asked.

“Yes Son! I like Jenny, she is a good woman and I will support your union, so go and get her”

She said.

“I have tried to call her but it was not connecting, I don’t know where to get her address”

I said.

“She is your patient, can’t you get her address in your file”

She said.

“Wow mother! That’s a brilliant idea, I never thought of that, thank you mother”

I peeked her and rushed out immediately.

An hour later, am in her house.

“What are you doing here?

She asked.

“I missed you Jenny, please come back to me, i have grown to love you and I dont think if i can live without you, my life is meaningless and incomplete without you in it and i know that you love me as much as i do please come back to me”

I said.

“Justin i love you too, i have always love you but are you willing to accept me and my unborn child?

She asked.

“I love you deeply and am willing to accept this child as my own”

I said.

“I love you Justin”

She said.

“I love you Jenny and i promise to love you until my last breath”

I said and we kissed passionately.


Nine months later, I gave birth to twins a boy and a girl.

Rosy later came back as she promised.

Joe and Jay are still serving their punishment in the prison.

When the twins turned to a year old, we did our court wedding and flew to Canada for recreation inculding mother.
