Later that Night.
“I can never have children Lawson.” Sarah cried.
Lawson felt his world crash right in front of him; “W…what?”
“Mama called today, she has gotten the tests results.”
“Jesus Christ!” Lawson stood, placing his palm on his head; “B…but you told me you were okay before we got married. You told me the doctor said your abortion didn’t damage your womb.”
“Don’t bring my past into this!” Sarah flared.
Lawson laughed and got serious almost immediately, “You are crazy. I married a crazy woman!”Sarah looked at him in shock, like he’d lost his mind.
“The results say you can never have children and we both know that this has to do with the abortion you had before we met!” he flared. “Are you happy? You know we’re screwed right? No kids? What are we going to tell the world?”
“Lawson we can adopt.” Sarah cried.
“Adopt? Wow!” he laughed again, “I married a funny woman too!” He got serious again. “It’s still not our baby! The dxxx baby is not my flesh and blood! You are full of deceit Sarah.” He looked into her eyes. Sarah could see him fighting his tears.
“Lawson stop, you are hurting me.” Sarah fell on her knees crying.
“You want to know what I’m thinking?” Lawson looked at her with disgust; “I’m thinking how on earth I’m going to stand seeing your deceitful face for the rest of my life.”
Sarah cried harder; “Don’t give up Lawson. So far I have a womb, I can still carry our baby.”
“I am not giving up on having my baby, I’m giving up on you.” Lawson turned around to leave.
“Lawson!” She held his feet, “I’m hurting too…” He dragged his feet from her hold and drove out of the house. She wept.
A Month Later.
“Mother, he’s not even talking to me. All of a sudden, we are both strangers. He doesn’t eat my food, he comes home late, he hates me so much and it’s killing me. I’m confused, it’s truly hurting.”
“For how long will you hide the truth from him? You’ve got to let him know you can’t carry his…”
There was the sound of a car horn.
“Mom I’ve got to go. He’s back.”
“Baby, you’ve got to let him know. It can work when you two are one in mind.”
“Bye mom.” she ended the call.
Lawson came into the house, about to walk past her.
“Lawson.” She held him.
“I’m tired.” He didn’t want to look at her face.
“I know. Can we talk for some minutes?” She tried to help him remove his suit.
“Look what is it?” He jerked from her.
“Do you hate me this much? You can’t even look me in the eye. You can’t even stand my presence. Lawson, it’s me Sarah…your best friend…” Tears began to well up in her eyes.
“I’m in no mood for this.” He turned around to walk away.
“Don’t you dare leave when I’m talking to you!” She dragged him by the suit. Just then, some papers fell to the floor. Sarah quickly bent to pick them up. Her hands shook and her body became numb all over.
“D…divorce papers? Lawson?” She searched his eyes.
“Answer me goddammit!” She held him by the collar of his shirt, crying.
“They are for you to sign. I want out.” Lawson announced.
“Y…you what?” she slowly freed him from her hold.
“It’s not going to work Sarah, can’t you see?”
“Lawson, I can’t believe you would think of a divorce and even go this far. Why are you so wicked!” she cried, angrily.
“No! Why are you so wicked?” He retorted, flaring. “Think about me for once. I am a man for Christ’s sakes. My children are my pride! And you are about to deny me that for the rest of my life because of your stupid mistake!”
“What about me! Have you stopped for once to think about what I’m going through?”
“It’s your cross, carry it.” Lawson fixed his angry eyes on his wife.
“No, it’s now our cross and I am not signing those divorce papers! We vowed never to leave each other!”
“Isn’t it better Sarah that you save yourself more hurt and sign these papers than to see another woman move into this house before your very eyes?” He said with a tone of sarcasm.
Sarah’s heart thumped; “What?”
“You heard me; Another woman who can help me raise a family, so save yourself the stress and sign the d… papers. I need it tomorrow.” He turned around to leave again.
“She still can’t carry your baby.” Sarah dropped.
“Not all women had abortions. Not every woman was like you.” He scorned.
“You are the one who can’t give me a child!” Sarah let out, crying.
Lawson stopped now, turned around and walked towards her, “Whatever your plan is won’t work.”
“I told you I could never have a child because it’s you who can’t make me pregnant.”
“Shut up! Shut up, Sarah! What the hell are you saying?” He shook her shoulders violently.
“You are infertile Lawson. The doctor says you have primary infertility.” Sarah burst into tears.
Lawson opened his mouth and couldn’t close it anymore!What transpired later on. Watch out in the concluding part in the evening.
