She went closer to James' door and pushed it opened. James was trying
to force a kiss on Juliet, but from the position where Mrs. Johnson
stood, it's Juliet's back facing her, it looked as if she was the one
going for the kiss. Because James had an advantage of seeing his
mother enter into his room, he quickly pushed Juliet away and started
"Stop forcing yourself on me, how could you do this?" James shouted at
Juliet.m All this while he was pretending he had not seen his mother
at the door. "what's going on here? Mrs. Johnson said. "Mother, its
good you are here, i don't know what has come over Juliet, she is all
over me" James lied. His mother was never opened minded, not only did
he trust James but he also doubled up as her favourite son.
"Oh so this is your plan to destroy this family right? Now tell me,
who does this belong to" Mrs. Johnson asked Juliet, showing her the
pregnancy test kit. Juliet got frightened with the look on Mrs.
Johnson's face. She was in dilemma, this wasn't the right moment to
tell her about the rape case. She will definitely not believe her,
taking into consideration what had happened. James was accusing her
that she was forcing herself on him and now the pregnancy test kit was
another issue she has to clear. This was going to be a difficult one
for her. She needed a helper, all she could think of was for God to
come to her aid.
She stood there as her words choked her up. Words became heavy for her
to even say. Silence was the only option. Mrs. Johnson got closer to
her and asked her again "who does this kit belong to? Julieth are you
pregnant? She asked. Juliet stood there still silent. Tears began
running down her cheeks. Before she knew it Mrs. Johnson was quick
with her hands, she gave her heavy slap that even got James
sympathizing with her. Mrs. Johnson then gave the kits to her to go
and check right away to see if she was pregnant or not. She wanted to
be sure of Juliet's status since she was not answering her.
Mrs Johnson followed her to the bathroom room, and stay behind the
door to ensure that she did the test. After some few minutes, Juliet
came out of the bathroom looking very sad. As soon as Mrs Johnson saw
her, she snatched the already used kit from her.
Two red lines indicated on the test kit. Juliet was confirmed
pregnant. "Juliet, you are pregnant!" Mrs Johnson said. "Mum, I can
explain, i… " Juliet said but was interrupted. "I am not your mother,
how many times do i have to tell you that. Look, you better tell me
who is responsible for that thing in your womb" Mrs. Johnson cautioned
Meanwhile James was also anxiously waiting for them at the living room
when all of a sudden, Nancy came in crying. "Hey what are you doing
here, don't you have the manners to call before coming" James asked.
"How could you James? you are the only guy I have ever known in my
entire life, how could you? Nancy who was in tears said.
James had no idea of what she was trying to say. "what are you talking
about Nancy?" James anxiously asked. Nancy handed a paper to him.
"what is this" James asked. "Can't you see for yourself James, that's
the result of a test i conducted at the hospital, James I am HIV
positive" She revealed. "What? What do you mean? Tell me this is a
joke" James asked. He couldn't believe his ears. "James, you are the
only guy i have ever known. If it's through sex that i got infected,
then its from you" Nancy said…..
Hmmm…could this be true? Is juliet really pregnant, and if yes how
would She explain this to Mrs. Johnson?
