“But we haven’t done anything, how come?” Gabriel questioned.
“wait!, you don’t know about the pregnancy?” Esther asked.

“Truth?.. Go on” Gabriel replied as he glued his eyes on Esther. Esther took a deep breath and started.
“When I was in the senior secondary school, I used to have a bestfriend . like a male best friend who I take as my own brother but he betrayed me. He r@ped me with two of his friends.. I was only a little innocent girl. I never thought that Gideon would do such to me not to even think of doing it with two other friends of his.” Esther broke into tears.
“It’s OK Esther, is that why you are crying? .. Wipe your tears, he doesn’t deserve them” Gabriel consoled.
“Well, same thing happened in school .. After what I passed through, inorder to protect my image I had to make my mum lie to my dad that it was some road side touts that r@ped me. I know my dad would go after Gideon if he had found out and that would have automatically spread the news of my r@pe.. I was ashamed of myself ” she continued ..
“In school before I came back, I went to this fresher’s night party, and I got raped again. This time, without a protective. I was drunk, I didn’t know what I was doing. My female friend who was supposed to take care of me left me in the hands of that monster. He got me pregnant. .. But he accepted to take responsibility of the baby but I told him i aborted the child after I withdrew from school.. Now you, actually my mum told me you knew about the pregnancy and decided to take me as i am.. I was just going to tell you so I would hear it from you directly, but it’s OK now. I was lied to by my own mother .. ” she cried.
“It’s OK Esther” Gabriel replied.
“You are a good man Gabriel, and I think you deserve to know the truth”
“Yes I deserve the truth, I can forgive anything but the fact that you are pregnant with another mans child…” Gabriel shook his head and drove off. They didn’t say anything again till he dropped Esther.
Esther went inside in tears. Her mum tried asking what the problem was but she ignored her completely.
