(Pregnant for a prince)
By: Faith Lucky
I felt so cold and shivery. Where was the doctor? Why’s he taking so long?
I sat with mum in the doctor’s office as we awaited the doctor to show up with the test results. I just hope I get diagnosed and treated soon. I really need to get rid of this weird feeling.
“He’ll be here soon, okay?” Mum placed her hand on mine and said and I just nodded
we were facing each other as we sat.
Finally, the door opened and I heaved a huge sigh of relief as I turned to see the doctor coming in.
He looked moody as he walked in slowly and went to the other side of the table to take his seat.
“Sorry for keeping you waiting”, he spoke calmly and adjusted his glasses.
He had a piece of paper with him – probably the test results.
“Oh! It’s nothing” mum quickly said.
“Please doctor, how’s she? What’s wrong with her?”
He hesitated for a while and dropped the paper on the table.
“Well..” He took off his specs.
“The…test was successful and the results are out”.
He paused and sighed. Hold on; why’s he acting this way?
“This is the test result, ma’am” he picked up the paper and handed it to mum.
She opened it curiously.
“I’m afraid….your daughter here…is pregnant”. He announced
I sat in my private jet as I awaited the pilot to land at the airport. We made it!
Finally, I was in America.
Oh, Hathor. I pray I get to find you. I hope you’re still alive.
Hathor and I…we got acquainted two years ago. But those two years had seem to be the best years of my life.
She was unique and it still puzzled me how she got to capture my heart so easily.
Everything was fine, but two months ago, she got to know she was pregnant. She was scared and had wanted to terminate it, but I encouraged her and asked her not to do away with it. I swore with my life never to abandon her and the baby and that’s the reason she kept it.
“Bur few days back, she discovered one of the my father’s officials was behind the death of her parents and it maddened her. She wanted revenge.
I tried talking her out of it, but she wouldn’t listen and she killed him, violating the king’s orders. And that way, she became a traitor.
Dad wanted to lock her up, but she ran away. I have no idea how she was able to do it, but she ran away and came down here to America.
But I was able to talk to dad and convince him and he’s agreed not to punish her anymore and that’s the reason I’m here, looking for her so we could all go home and start our family.
I just pray I find her.
Although, it was a bit convincing. I couldn’t really feel her presence, but I could feel that of the baby and that only means she’s alive, right? If the baby’s alive, she should be alive as well.
So, yes; I’m going to find her
Just incase you’re wondering how I intend finding her, well that’s part of my special powers.
As long as we’ve had s*x, there’s a blood connection and I’ll be able to trace you where ever you may be.
I reached for my bag and brought out her picture, staring at it.
Hopefully, I plan on finding her today so we could leave for Egypt tomorrow.
I scoffed and looked at mum, her eyes buried in the paper.
“What?” I flinched and looked at the doctor.
“Wh…What’re you talking about, doctor? What do you mean I’m pregnant?”
“Its stated there in the test, ma’am. And with the look of things, I think you should be up to 3 months or there about” he said, making me more perplexed. Is he joking or what?
I beat my lashes and tried to comprehend what was going on.
Was he trying to pull our legs or what?
“Doctor” I Called fraily.
“I don’t understand a single word you’ve said. Were you paid by someone to play pranks on us or what? What’s going on?”
“Miss, how could I possibly wanna play pranks with something as vital as this? Everything that’s done here is professional and I’ve got no time for pranks”.
“But I can’t be pregnant!” I half yelled, not knowing if I were to cry or stay angry.
“I…I didn’t sleep with anyone. So, how can I be pregnant???”
Mum stood up immediately, her hands shaking with the paper in them. Her eyes were still buried in it
“M…Mum”, I stuttered tearfully and stood up, but her eyes wouldn’t leave the paper.
My breath wavered and I looked back at the doctor. What’s going on.
Slowly, mum started walking out of the office.
I barged into the house, tears streaming down my cheeks.
“Mum” I called as I met her in the sitting room
She turned and gave me a stingy slap.
“How could you, Zoey?” She wept.
“How could you? After everything we’ve been through; after all the promises you made me to me; how could you bring Shame upon me this way?”
“Mum” I whimpered.
“I swear with my life, mum, I don’t know what he’s talking about. I swear, I’m not pregnant. I’m still a virgin. I didn’t sleep with anyone!”
“Really?” She scoffed.
“You didn’t sleep with anyone? So, the baby just jumped into you or what?”
“I don’t know” I whimpered.
“I swear to God, mum; I never had s*x. I seriously don’t know what the doctor’s talking about. I swear, I’m not pregnant”.
“You’ve made me broken the promise I made to your father” she said ruefully.
“You’ve destroyed it, Zoey. How could you bring such shame to me?
“I warned you; I spent most of the time talking to you about taking care of yourself. What didn’t I do for you, Zoey? I…I know I don’t really have much. I know I’m not that rich, but I try all I can to make sure you don’t lack.
“Your education – I was working on it. Why did you have to ruin everything? Why Zoey? Why?”
I busted into more tears as the acrimony stirred up in me.
Oh God! What’s happening? I’m not pregnant. What’s going on?
“Get out of my sight Zoey, please” she backed me and said.
“Please, I beg you, just leave for now. Please”.
I covered my mouth with my palm in shock
Oh my God!
“Please Zoey; leave!” She yelled without turning to look at me and I didn’t realize when I ran out of the house.
