    Episode 1

    Oleng stared at the paper again and wept. She really felt suicidal now. All the joy she had felt at going to the hospital had abated. She felt like tearing the paper to pieces but knew she had to show Dave first. How disappointed he would be. She had missed her monthly period some weeks back and because she had thrown up twice when she was ill some days back which was unusual for her, she had suspected she was pregnant though she didn’t feel the way she had felt when she was pregnant some years back. She had kept hoping and hoping and had decided to go for a pregnancy test that day and had insisted on waiting for the result only to be told that the test had turned out negative; she wasn’t pregnant and the doctor had told her some mumbo jumbo story as to why she threw up and missed her period and said something about hysterical pregnancy. Because she wanted to have a child badly, her body had mimicked the symptoms of pregnancy. She stared at the paper again and regretted telling Dave about it. It would have been better if she had borne this alone. She sat helplessly on the sofa thinking of how she would tell her husband when he returned from the office.

    That was how Dave met his wife when he came into the living room.
    “Angel, what’s wrong? Why are you crying?” he asked with concern as he sat beside her on the sofa.

    For an answer, she t----t the paper of her failure under his chin.

    “Oh! Angel,” he cuddled her after reading its contents. “I’m sorry to say this but I knew your anxiety was for nothing. I didn’t want to dash your hopes but I knew you weren’t pregnant.”

    “How?” she enquired.

    “The symptoms were too poor. I hoped also but inwardly, I knew it was a false alarm.”

    She sniffed. “O Dave! I don’t know what to do anymore. I desperately want a baby.”

    “Don’t worry. We’ll have one.” he soothed.

    She jolted out of his arms in anger. “When? You keep saying that. When are we going to have a child? I’m sick and tired of you telling me not to worry and we’ll have a child. We’ve been married for over four years now yet I haven’t been able to conceive yet you keep telling me not to worry. Why shouldn’t I?” she was exasperated with frustration.

    “Am I God that you should ask such a stupid question?” He was furious also.

    “I know you’re not God but what effort have you made? Ever since we relocated here six months ago, you’ve rarely been around. It’s always your job. Your job has taken precedence over our marriage. When was the last time you touched me? When was the last time we made love? If I’m going to get pregnant, do you think it is God that will plant the seed in my womb? No wonder you knew I wasn’t pregnant because you knew it would be impossible since we haven’t made love in months.” Oleng raved.

    Dave got up in anger. “Oh! So it’s now my fault that you can’t get pregnant. All the love we’ve been making for four good years, where has that gotten you?” he asked harshly. “Are you not still as barren as ever? Let us adopt a child, no; you want to carry your own baby even though you know you’re not capable of conceiving. Don’t blame me for anything because I know even if I take you to bed from now till next week, the result would still be the same, no pregnancy.” he wickedly threw at her.

    He was about stalking away when he paused and turned to look at his wife who was staring at him in horror at what he had just told her. “You know, I’m beginning to think you’re right afterall. Maybe that damned baby you had for that bastard Eric really destroyed your womb, rendering you barren for life. The sooner you start thinking of adoption, the better for you.” He walked angrily away leaving his wife numb on the sofa.

    She couldn’t believe what she had just heard. Dave blamed her for their inability to have a baby. He thought her barren. Fresh tears dripped from her eyes. What an unhappy world this is. She was so unhappy. She actually began to rue the day she married him. Life was so unfair to her. Her own husband had called her barren.

    They didn’t speak to each other for days. Dave even spent more time in the office than before just to spite her she suspected. Ever since they came to Port Harcourt six months back, it had always been from one off shore to the other to the extent that she had started suspecting he was having an affair but decided not to voice it out. She wasn’t sure if he was but prayed against it because she knew that would be the end of her unhappy marriage. She wasn’t always busy like him because her job was by far more lucrative than the one she had had in Calabar. He had encouraged her to make friends; at least visiting friends would keep her busy. The only real friend she had there and visited was Marvy who was back in Nigeria and seriously planning her wedding with her fiancé, Kelechi.

    Oleng woke up on the day of her twenty-seventh birthday with tears when she noticed she was alone on the bed. It was a Saturday but Dave had gone to the office which he often did. He had always woken her up with a kiss and gifts on her previous birthdays but now, he wasn’t even around not to talk of kissing her and flooding her with gifts. She wept before she got up from the bed thinking he meant to surprise her like he did on one of her birthdays after he pretended to have forgotten; but surprised her with gifts.

    When evening came and he still hadn’t come home or called, she knew he had really forgotten. She felt her marriage was about to hit the rocks for this singular act of forgetfulness of his. Her tears knew no bound. She took his favorite meal away and poured it in the dustbin. She stared at the way she had romantically set the dining table and called herself a fool. She angrily pushed everything on the floor; unlit candles, glasses, breakable plates and all. She felt better after doing that but wept as she crumbled on the sofa to wait for him. He came back late as usual and flicked the light on she had put off earlier to create an effect on the romantically arranged table. He was shocked to see her on the sofa. Her eyes were red from weeping.
