I looked up at the ceiling and wept profusely.
Two things are bothering my mind seriously.
And this has caused me sleepless nights so many times
I have been married for 6 years now without an issue
Not even half talk less of one
I have never even gotten pregnant let alone having miscarriage.
My husband and I have gone for several test and nothing was found wrong.
I have gone to series of deliverance but still no positive result.
I am sick and tired of going about seeking for fruit of the womb and have decided to stay and pray to God.
Its so painful to see my friends that I got married before with two to three kids but here I am childless.
People started calling me barren and my husband impotent but neither me nor my husband knows the reason behind our predicament.
I don’t lack anything in my home.
My husband is a well to do business man and I am also doing very well in my fabric business but whenever I remember I have no child to call my own, I shed tears sadly
Its really eating me up emotionally but my husband seems not to be much concerned about it that much
The second thing bothering my mind is my sister
Ella my sister have been staying with me ever since I got married cos our parents left us at a very young age
She moved in with me and she goes to school from our home cause our house is very close to her school
She is now in her third year and still very humble and obedient
She is 24 years old and respects me a lot but my husband is beginning to change towards her
He now complains of everything she does
He finds fault in all she does and always accuse her wrongly
But whenever I suggest we get a room for her so she can give us space, he refuses and insist she stay but should try talking sense to her
I am yet to see any error about Ella but my husband keeps complaining
I threatened to leave him if he dare complains of my sister again cos his complain is getting out of hand
My sister is my all in all
I love her so much cos it was just the both of us
The both of us struggled through thick and thin together before our life got better
My parents left us at a very young age and the both of us hustled and catered for ourselves
We never misbehaved
I met my husband as a virgin and married him a virgin and I am very sure my sister is still a virgin
My husband stopped complaining of her but after a while he started again
Ella was aware that my husband hates her but she don’t give a damn about it.
This whole issue seems to be disturbing me alone
Ella, I am so concerned about this whole issue honestly
My husband used to like you before
How come he developed this hatred for you overnight
I said sadly
You don’t have too worry about that sister
Life is full of ups and down you know
If people don’t hate you, you won’t find love
Forget about your husband attitude towards me
Its part of life experience. She said lackadaisically
Ella, I don’t like the way he yells at you sometimes
You are a grown up girl for Christ sake and he shouldn’t treat you like a slave.
You are my blood
One blood and he should know that
Why treating you bad? Why?
I think I should just rent a house for you somewhere so you can come visit once in a while. I said and she refused immediately
No no no no sister
Why should you do that?
You shouldn’t do that at all
Don’t waste your money for my sake
I have told you this is not bothering me
Yourself husband has every right to treat me however he wish cause I am in his house and he pays all my school fees
So why shouldn’t he do that?
Sister forget about this please
We should think of solution to your childlessness not me biko. She said holding my hands and I nodded
If you say so
As for a solution to my childlessness, I have left that for God to solve
I have gone to series of hospital, different churches but no solution
So I believe God will do it for me at His due time. I said and she nodded
I prepared fried plantain and sauce,
Let me get some for you to eat
With this your look, I don’t think you have eaten today
Its so delicious
Ella said and left while I bowed my head sadly.
