THE HEAT OF VIRGINITY – Part 12 by Edun Oluwatobi

She then gushed out in tears. It was becoming irritating and I grew impatient and….. I heard
a tiny voice of a kid saying. “Mummy sorry.” The little boy then embraced her by her leg and she carried him up. I was shocked the baby looked very much like me when I was little…. He had the shape of
my eyebrows and my droopy eyes. I then stuttered. “Is… That your child?” As sweat began to drip from my face. She then replied sobbing. “This is our Adeoluwa ….This is our son.” I then said. “How come, how is it possible?” She said. “He is 2 years old, you are the only man I have slept with, he even looks like
you.” I then said. “Oh my God!” As I sat down on a bench because my knees became weary. “Tell me everything Tope.” She said. “3 weeks after you left Kogi. I became ill and I was vomiting. My mom then
asked me if I was seeing any man. I told her no. She took me to see the doctor, he ran some tests and the result was that I was pregnant. My mom beat me in the hospital with her slippers. When we got home, she
threw my stuffs out and disowned me. I went to meet my closest relative and in spite of all the pleas my mom refused to take me back……” As she started sobbing. I held her hand tight to comfort her and
said. “Continue.” She then said. “My relatives insisted I tell them who was responsible, but I refused. I
didn’t want to implicate you and I know you didn’t mean it. You have always wanted to help me. So I did not tell them. 4 months later, they started maltreating me and I then decided to leave. A pastors wife took me in and I was there for 1 year. That was were I gave birth to junior and worked with the church’s primary school.” I then said. “You mean this church?” She said. “No, I came to this church about 6 months ago. I had to leave the other place, the pastor made some advances on me, I reported to the wife and she threw me out. I have been here since. It’s been terrible Adeoluwa ….”She began to cry out. My mind was heavy and I knew I had to do something about her situation. She suffered because of me, her education, her family. I felt so much indebted to her. I then said. “Tope, I know everything can’t be okay, but I
will do everything possible to make sure you get the best in life. God has blessed me with a good job and money is not a problem. I will get you an apartment here in Kogi and every month I will send you N200,000 for you and Junior.”.
