What Was I Thinking? LII


After a month of back-and-forth fights with Fitz with him trying so hard to drum into my head that I was dead to the world and I refusing to accept it; I began to realize that I couldn’t possibly win it with Fitz. I was worn out physically, mentally and emotionally. The only one who…

This wasn’t happening. Was this really happening? I tried searching my mind to find an answer but found it as confused as my very soul. Am I having a nightmare in my subconscious?

“You have a baby girl, Mr. Daniels.” Fitz gave an inward sigh of relief. Thankfully, he wouldn’t have to name his child after that ingrate named Adam. “And the mother?

It has been five days. Five whole days. The frenzied texts from Sabrina escalated my worries. Adam had gone completely dark and I couldn’t tell if he wanted to be out of reach for a while following our last encounter or he had been taken. If it weren’t for Sabrina, I’d have comforted myself with…

Karen and I took a break from unpacking our stuff in our hostel room by helping ourselves to some food when my phone rang. “Hey,” I said, my mouth still occupied. “If you two were planning on dropping such a bombshell on me, a little heads up would have been nice,” he hissed. I swallowed….

Fitz’s eyes opened weakly. It took some minutes for his eyes to focus well. He panicked a little when he realized he was in a strange room. He felt a hand in his and looked down. It was Emily, his wife. A smile crept up his face as he watched her sleep in the chair…

A million thoughts raced through my mind as my feet carried me through the corridors. What have I done? What was happening? My mind played back to the moment I felt my whole world crumbling down: “Maybe I should head home and talk to him,” I said, attempting to get out of the bed. “No,…

“You lied to me. You betrayed me. All I did was love you…despite the doubts and suspicions planted in my head from colleagues, I chose to trust you and you betrayed me. I chose to forgive you for your infidelity but this is the last straw. I could forgive you for everything else even it…

“You’re fine; nothing is wrong with the baby.” “You’re sure because usually, when you see blood it’s a sign of…” “A miscarriage, I know; it happens sometimes although rare. You and the baby are in good condition. You do need to come back for a checkup though.” I nodded. “Could it be…a reaction to something?”…

“Darling, Adam has something to tell you.” “Oh yeah, what is it?” Adam turned to face him. “Since you call me family, I thought it would be cute if you named your baby Adam.” “That’s nice. I’ll definitely consider it.” His phone rang. “Excuse me,” he said and turned to leave the kitchen. He heard…

A lanky boy entered Mr. Daniels’ office. Fitz handed him an envelope. “Send it to the address on the envelope,” he said grimly. “Yes sir,” he said and turned around. “Did you deliver the envelope to my residence as I asked you to?” “Yes sir, I did.” “Okay…my wife took it from you?” “No…A young…

I laughed out loudly. I was enjoying a short story on Wattpad when I heard the doorbell ring. I looked up. Who could that be? The help had already left. I got up and walked to the door. The baby bump was really in the way now…my gait had changed drastically and I wasn’t proud…
