Pinky Preshy Chioma

Episode 14


Aliyah’s Pov:

The buzzing sound of the alarm clock woke me up from my deep slumber as I rubbed my tummy and yawned tiredly.

My stomach was already bulged out.

I rubbed my eyes as I gradually took off the blanket that I was using to cover myself.

It was almost 6am and I needed to get to work as soon as possible.

I walked straight to the bathroom still yawning.

I made for my toothbrush on the kit and quickly took it and then took the toothpaste.

I applied the toothpaste on the toothbrush as I started brushing my teeth.

When I was done brushing,,,, I yanked the big nightie off my body as I took a warm shower.

I walked out of the bathroom with a towel tied round my chest.

And straight in front of the dressing mirror I went and stood right in front of it.

I combed my hair thoroughly.

You won’t believe that the once very beautiful Aliyah looks so ugly now with rashes all over my face.

My face was dark now and black spots all over.

Pregnancy can be such a big change in one’s life for sure.

I applied some cream but that was to the part of the body that I can reach.

I made for the wardrobe and three it open.

I kept on bringing out dresses and trying them on but all the same the clothes weren’t fitting.

“Am I that fat?” I mumbled.

Almost all my dresses didn’t fit me anymore.

What do I do now?

I picked up the big gown and wore it.

I didn’t even bother to apply face powder.

I walked down and poured some water into the electric kettle and plugged it then turn it on.

I put on my flip-flops with my fat swollen legs.

Before I could get down with my handbag,,, the water was already boiling so I turned off the switch and unplugged it.

I poured out the hot water into a cup as I put some milk and chocolate into the cup.

And a cube of sugar…..

I stirred the tea again and again before going to the dinning.

I ate hungrily and kept on munching the bread like my life depends on it.

When I was done,,, I cleaned my mouth with a serviette paper and belched noisily.

And that instant,,, I felt like sleeping instead if going to work as supposed.

You might be wondering the kind of work I do.

I work in a fancy flower shop.

I managed to get that job after so many weeks of searching for work.

This city is not an easy place to survive.

By the way I really have to go to work with my baby ok.

I managed to get up from the chair holding my waist and groaning.

I headed out with my handbag clutched to my arm.

“Good morning Miss Aliyah….” My other slim neighbor greeted as I smiled at her and waved.

“Hi Christy” I forced a smile before leaving.

Luckily I saw a cab and flagged it down.

I hopped in and straight to work we went.


Arthur’s Pov:

“What the fk are you talking about Natasha?” I shouted banging my fist on the desk.

“What is there not to understand? It’s very simple and clear Arthur” She screamed back at me.

“I don’t believe this…. I can’t believe this fake piece of paper” I threw the paper away.

“Arthur am pregnant and you are responsible,,,, the earlier you own up to your responsibilities the better for you” She barked at me.

“You are so unbelievable” I snorted.

“I don’t care what you say Arthur…. I am carrying your child so better get ready for a wedding” She smirked.

“You lured me into this” I almost screamed.

“And you fell willingly into it without hesitation so now here is the outcome” She rolled her eyes.

“I don’t love you Natasha…. She is the one I love and you made her leave me” I pointed at her with fury.

“She was going to steal you from me and I just took what is truly mine besides I love you Arthur and that’s what matters” She snapped.

“I think you should get rid of that trash you call a baby” I said with a finality tone.

“What?” I freaked out.

“You heard me Natasha… You should get rid of it” I shouted at her.

“She will do no such thing” A voice said from behind and we turned around.

It was my mom.

I gulped hard as I turned my face away.

“I just wish you said this when it was poor Aliyah in her shoes” I muttered.

“Arthur it’s high time you forget about that Aliyah…. I saw it that she’s truly not the one for you but look at Natasha here,,,, she’s been with you through thick and thin so stop speaking about her” Mom said.

“Arrrghhh… Am fed up with all these happenings” I groaned as k walked away.

“You are not aborting him my dear” I heard mom say to Natasha.


Aliyah’s Pov:.

I got to the shop early before most of the workers.

Actually the lady who owns the shop grew so fond of me that she made me the manager.

Even with my pot belly

“Miss Aliyah the customer wants to see you” One of the girls said as I struggled up from the desk and walked to the counter.

It was a very handsome young man with glasses.

“Sir how may I help you?” The man asked.

Actually he has become a regular customer in the flower shop that I wondered what he does with the flowers he keeps buying every week.

His girlfriend must be too fond of flowers.

“Uhmm… I want fresh red roses” He said as I nodded.

He always orders for red roses.

“Okay sir I will get….” I said but then I felt a sharp pain but I pretended.

I tried to walk again then the pain came again sharper than the other and I gave out a loud scream as I fell into the man’s arms……
