I started investigating, alongside Moji. We searched for means through which we could prove her wrong, but there is no other means of actually confirming, than getting close to her. Moji wasn’t really comfortable with this idea. “Get close to her? No way! What if in that process, you get her really pregnant this time. I’m sorry, but it won’t be possible”. Moji protested. I didn’t really understand why Moji was acting that way. She had a boyfriend already, and she was being overly protective over me. “I can assure you, nothing will happen between us.” I said to Moji. “Promise me you won’t have anything to do with her.” Moji said to me. “I promise!” I answered her.
Moji agreed that I go to Sandra, Sandra had rented an apartment already in town around an area called ‘Asherifa’. So I went to meet her in her house. Getting the truth from her won’t be a difficult task. After all, Sandra is a talkative. All I have to do is engage in a long discussion with her. It will only be a matter of time before she vomits the whole truth.
When I got to her house, she was too pretty for someone who is really pregnant. At first that made me suspicious, but I just kept my calm and sat on a chair in her room. . .
Sandra: I knew you will come. (Sending the message to me with a seductive smile)
Me: Yes baby. I’m sorry I shouted at you the other day. It wasn’t my doing. I just got uncontrollably angry.
Sandra: It’s all right. I know you didn’t mean all that. What do I offer you?
Me: No I’m totally fine. (Thinking to myself) You think you can drug me?
Sandra: So now that I’m pregnant for you, you need to come here often, so you can perform your duties as an expectant father.
Me: And what are those duties?
Sandra: You sleep with me regularly. In order to ensure safe delivery.
Me: No, that’s not good for the baby. We shouldn’t do that.
Sandra: But that’s what my doctor said.
Me: Yes, I’ve been thinking that as the father of this baby, I need to have a discussion with that doctor of yours, you know I have to see him, so he can put me in line as regards things to do, and things not to do as far as our baby is concerned.
Sandra: (stammering) ern ern ern no. Let’s just focus on oiling me. (Coming close to me)
Me: (Restraining her) I’m not doing anything until I talk to the doctor, and he says that it is safe for the baby. The baby is not even up to two months. I don’t want anything to happen to my baby. Without a qualified doctors advice, I’m doing nothing.
Sandra: I understand what you are saying but. . .
Me: There are no. . . (I looked at my side, and saw a guys shirt) What is this Sandra?
Sandra: (Being defensive) Its not Important it’s just. . . .
Me: (Cuts in) It’s just what? I can’t believe you are cheating on me.
Sandra: I swear to God I’m not. It’s just a neighbour that came here to rest yesterday. We are quite close. I swear nothing is between us. (trying to convince me)
Me: How can I be so sure that you guys didn’t have sex yesterday?
Sandra: We couldn’t have had sex, because yesterday I was on my period.
Me: Alright. Alright. Alright I believe you.
I stayed there for some hours, she pressurized me to sleep with her, but I didn’t fall for it this time. The promise I made to Moji kept me going. I was so in control, as I had made a firm decision not to do a thing with Sandra. “I think I have to go now, I will see you later.” I said to her. Though her face was gloomy, but I didn’t look at that for a second as I have my own life to live. I left the place, and immediately I entered campus, I gave Moji a call. Moji came to see me and we started talking at Anglomoz. . .
Moji: How did it go?
Me: I didn’t find anything. But the girl is a slut, I found a guys shirt in her house. She told me she didn’t have sex with him, because the guy came yesterday, and she was on her period then. She wanted me to have. . .
Moji: (Cuts in) Wait, what did you just say?
Me: She wanted me to have sex. . .
Moji: (Cuts in again) No, not that, she was on her what?
Me: On her period.
Moji: I knew it!!!
Me: What’s that?
Moji: Women don’t menstruate, when they are pregnant. This can only mean that she is lying about one of the two. It’s either she is lying about her pregnancy, or lying about sleeping with the guy with the shirt. Either way, we will use it to our advantage. You will have to go there again, and tell her you have phobia for pregnant women, and that’s why you can’t have sex with her. Just act the whole drama well, and you will get the truth. . .
To cut the long story short, some days later, I went to Sandra, I told her what Moji had taught me. “I really want to do this, but I have phobia for pregnant women. I’m just here talking to you because of the love I have for you.’ I said to her.”Seriously? Owk, Dapo there is something I want to tell you.” She said. “Okay, I’m all ears”. I answered. “Promise me that you will stick to me, and give me what I want if I tell you the truth”. She said. “Just tell me”. I answered. “Actually, I’m- I’m- I’m not really pregnant”. She said. I got really excited, but just kept playing along. “oh my God! I thought I was going to be a father. I can’t wait for you to be the mother of my children.” I said to her and planted a kiss on her lips to make her tell me more. “I know, but getting pregnant now will really affect our lives. Let’s just keep having fun. I can only get pregnant. If I want to”. She said, trying to draw me to herself. But I pushed her away to the bed. “You bastard! I never want to see you again. I will pay you your money and it will be all over.” I got really angry. I stormed out of her room with mixed feelings. Anger/Relief was the feeling. I entered campus. Moji was already waiting at Anglomoz to hear the report. . . .
