Getting The Jiggy On

"Does your sister have a problem with me?" I asked while we were at the parking. We were outside the car on the trunk looking towards the distance.

"What?" He asked.

"I think she might have a problem with me." I continued. "I think maybe I have not done something right or my dressing irked her."

"Nah. I would have known if there was an issue. We are close and she can tell me anything."

"Okay, maybe I got paranoid again." I said placing my hands on his waist.

He stretched his hand to me and pulled me close to him. He then turned, lifted me on top of the trunk and kissed me. Passionately!

"Have you stopped being paranoid?" He asked in between the kisses.

"Yes." I let out a whisper.

"I love you. You should not let another person come between your happiness." He added. "You are perfect to me."

I kissed him back. He held my head towards him and this continued until we heard a noise.

     Cough, cough

The coughing was coming from behind Fred. I stopped kissing then looked behind only to find the guard looking at us. He was not happy. I tried pulling my dress down while Fred adjusted his pants.

"Excuse me, I will have to ask you to leave." He said looking at us suspiciously.

"Why?" Fred asked.

"You cannot do that here." He replied. "You have to take it somewhere else."

"Okay." I said and entered into the car. 

Fred followed and started the engine. As we were driving outside the compound, we started laughing. That was the most awkward thing ever. The guard caught us in a compromising situation. My short dress was pulled all the way up! Oh God! 

"I don't know why but I wanna do that again?" Fred said as we joined the highway.

"What?" I asked not sure where this was heading to.

"The kissing. I feel like am seventeen again." Fred said.

"I feel odd." I said. "What if someone else saw us?"

"What's bad about it? We were just having fun."

"I was terrified."

He laughed. "Lets go finish what we started back in the house.

Time to Party!

"I got a bonus." Fred said excitedly.

"How? I thought you would get by the end of the year." I asked surprised.

"I thought so too but the company posted profits in the first and second quarter of the year. So the management decided to give everyone something small for the efforts." He replied.

"Wow, that's nice." 

"Yea. Can we celebrate by going out tonight?" he asked.

"Tonight? What about the baby?" We cannot leave her alone." I asked.

"I thought about that and asked my sister to come and baby sit." 

"OMG!" I shouted. "How were you able to arrange all that?"

"I am good in surprises." he said laughing.

"Okay, when is she coming?" I asked.

"She will be here in about twenty minutes." He replied checking his wrist watch.

"And where are we going to?" I asked trying to figure out how this will work.

"First, I wanted us to go to the Chinese restaurant near Valley Road then we go out and hit the clubs. Is that okay with you?"

"Yeah. I'm so excited. Let me go freshen up." I said and jumped up quickly to go to the bathroom. 

After like fifteen minutes, I was ready and looking spectacular. I found Fred with the sister in the living room seated together in the couch. 

The sister gave me a weird look then looked back at her brother continuing her conversation with him. Did she give me that look because of the short purple dress that I was rocking? I did not let that interfere with my mood. That was her problem. I gave her a brief on what to do and showed her where the baby food was.

We kissed Chloe bye and off we went.

The dinner was so nice. We sat outside the balcony overlooking the entire city as the restaurant was situated on the top most floor of the building. This place was so significant to us as we had so many dinners here while we were still dating in campus. It was "our place."

After we were done, we went to the new club which was recently opened. I think I got shocked on how the scene had changed from when we last went out clubbing. The young girls wore almost nothing. You would literally see everything. The sarcastic bit was the guys were so heavily dressed that it looked comical seeing them together. We sat near the bar. I ordered a mohito while Fred took his usual, a beer. The music was loud and got us in the mood to party.

Loo Issues

"I think you should take the Doctor's advice seriously. Try to relax and avoid stressful conditions." I said to Ann.

I will, hopefully he won't add to the stress." She replied while facing Mike.

"I won't." Mike said.

I took the last sip of the juice and excused myself. I had to go home and look after my small family. Traffic back home was smooth. No hustles. I packed the car at the far end of the compound and went in.

Chloe was crawling alone in the living room. Fred was nowhere to be seen. I dropped my bag, picked the baby up and placed her on my left hip and went to the other rooms to check. He was not in the kitchen. I called him. He didn't respond. I checked the bedroom but it was empty. The bed was messed up. As I was stepping out of the bedroom to go look for him in the back balcony, I heard some noises from the washroom. I went back in. The door was closed. I tried opening but it was locked from the inside. As I was struggling, the toilet was flushed and there came Fred. He had his phone in his hands.

"When did you come?" He asked not surpised on my presence.

"I just entered. Why did you leave the baby alone?"

"I didn't. I just went to the washroom. I was here."

"She was alone!" I insisted.

"No, I had to pee and I cannot go to the toilet with her."

I shook my head.

"Baby, you are getting paranoid. Nothing would have happened to the baby." He assured me while holding to my shoulders. "Okay?"

I nodded.

"Okay, let us go to the other room."

We followed his steps back to the bedroom. I placed Chloe on the bed and she started crawling to the other side. I quickly rushed to her side least she fell.

"Where did you go to?" Fred asked adjusting his blue shorts.

"I passed by Ann's place. She was in the hospital this morning but she is okay."

"Oh, hope nothing serious?"

"No, she is good."

"Was Mike around? It has been a while since we last saw each other."

"Yes he was." I replied.

"Ill give him a shout."

Mummy Problems

After the meeting, I checked my phone and saw a text from Ann. She informed me that she is back home.

I smiled. At least it was nothing serious. Since it was around 5 O'clock, I started packing and decided to go see Ann on my way home. At a quarter past 5pm, I left the office. The highway was too busy. The traffic started a few meters from the office. I took about thirty minutes to drive over to Mike and Ann's house where in the normal traffic free days, one would take 10 minutes. I found Ann sitted on the couch with her legs up. She was big! Her tummy was showing in the white short dress she was wearing. I gave her a hug and asked her how she was feeling. Even before she answered, Brad came running from the bedroom.

"Aunty, Aunty." He shouted.

"Yes Brad. How are you?" I asked moving him closer to my body.


Brad was Ann and Mike son. He is two and a half years. He is the most handsome kid I have ever seen. He was taller now. He had taken both of the parents facial features.

"Mummy, can I watch Lily?" He asked.

"Yes dear. Seat here." Ann said while showing him a cushion on the floor. She then changed the TV channel and put on Cartoon Network. Brad smiled and started watching.

"So? What was the problem?" I asked.

"I woke up with some pain in my belly. It was similar to cramps. I took a glass of water then went back to bed. A few minutes later, I had the urge to go to the washroom only to discover that I was spotting." She started.


"Now, the sad part was Mike saw my reaction and freaked out." She continued.

"No I did not." Mike said while coming out from the kitchen with three glasses of juice.

We laughed.

"Yes you did. You were so worried that something bad will happen. I on the other hand, I was too freaked out that I could not move." She said looking at Mike. "After a few awkward moments, we decided to go to the hospital and get checked out."

"So what did the doctor say?"

"He said it was normal for women to spot especialy if they are seven to thirteen weeks. He however cautioned me to avoid stressful condition and eat healthy food."
