He was hurting
Ayisat could see it in his eyes, he was hurting bad and it pained her soul. She wished to take his pain away, to make him feel better but how could she? She could not even heal the wound inside herself, how could she help him?
“Talk to me my love, what do you want me to do? Just tell me please and I’ll do anything, anything!” He begged.
He couldn’t give her what she wanted; he couldn’t even if he moved mountains. He couldn't because what she wanted back was impossible!
I want my baby back! She wanted to cry out.
“Say something please, you have not said anything since you got back and it’s been a week now. Why won’t you talk to me?”
He had not said that in frustration but fear, he was worried she was no longer his Ayi and this was scaring him and driving him insane at the same time.
When she was at the hospital, he had been so scared she might not make or wake up with a defect; this made him prayed like a church rat asking God for wealth. He, at that time, prayed more than any prayer warrior.
Now, she was back home but won’t talk to him. He feared she now hate him. He could deal with her not loving him, with her fearing him but hate? Allah, please! He had no idea how he would deal with her hatred, merely thinking about that scared him like hell.
His mother was gone and he was more relieved and grateful she left. It should worry him that she left his house sad and probably angry but all he felt was relief. Allah forgave him but he was glad, that he could not deny.
May be he was paying for that now; maybe that’s why Ayisat would not talk to him.
“I want to see my brothers, can I see them Khalid?” she finally said.
Words could not describe how happy he was to hear her say something.
“Of course Ayisat, I will call the school and arrange for them to visit right away…..”
“No, no. I don’t want to stay here,” she said but quickly added when she realised how that sounded. “I want to see my aunt and stay with her for a while with Rasak and Musa. I’m sure she would like to visit but can’t leave my cousins alone at home, let me go and visit her please.”
She could as well take a knife and stab him. It was clear she didn’t want to live with him anymore; she wished to be far away from him.
He could say no. If he did, she would stay and not go anywhere but she would have more reasons to hate him. How he wished he could turn the hands of time, he would go back and change everything. He would go back to days before the miscarriage, before his travel, his mother’s arrival, and the pregnancy.
Days before he left for his travel had been so wonderful, he barely left her room not when she even protest of hunger. He had not been in need of food at that time, all he wanted was her. He was just planning on moving her things to his room because it was larger and he wanted her near him all the time.
Now she was leaving him, she deserved to leave if that was what she wanted. Her family would make her happy; happiness was something he had, times without number, failed to give her.
After what seemed like eternity to Ayisat, he finally said. “If that is what you want, I’ll call Auntie and inform her of your visit.”
He stood up and left the room. A part of her was glad he consented, the other wished to reach out to him and console him.
She wanted to, real bad but she found it hard to do.

“You have a visitor Ayisat,” her cousin, Rekia, said.
She was confused, who could that be? Not her husband, she hoped. She still didn’t have it in her to face him. It’s been ten days since she left home…… Him, since then, she’d been filled with nothing but happiness.
Ayisat had not been this free and happy since she got married; she actually forgot she was a married girl…. Or was it woman? She didn’t want to go back anymore; she wanted to stay here with her family, especially with her brothers.
Rasak was the loquacious one between the twins; he could talk you to your death. Ever since they came back for the short holiday Khalid requested for, he had not stopped talking about their school and his new friends; she had to chase him out to go play football with their cousin, after which his twin followed. He continued talking even when his sister made all the signs that she was bored and tired.
Musa rarely talked, Ayisat could see he terribly missed her. While Rasak talked away, he just snuggled up to her like a small baby. She was worried at first he had not made friends like his twin but when she made enquires and was told that Musa could not wore his school uniform twice a week because of his rough plays, she relaxed.
They had to go back to school soon for them to not miss much, she wished they could stay more but she knew she had to wait till they vacate.
“You don’t know who it is?”
Rekia shook her head.
“She is carrying a baby though,” her cousin added as an afterthought.
She? Who else could it be if not……
Ayisat jumped at her feet and ran outside.
“I was already thinking of shouting down this roof or barging in to give that lazy behind of yours a good spanking.”
Ayisat covered her mouth for a second. Finding it hard to believe her friend was in front of her after all these time.
“Are you going to stand there all day gaping at me?” the girl smiled and said in their local dialect.
She ran to her and engulfed her in a big hug, embracing both mother and child. They both soon started crying.
He was going to let her go.
This was wrong from the beginning; he should not have married her, he had been wrong to tie her down with him. She was too young, had he not said that to himself like a million times already?
Yet he got close to her, started to admire her, took her to bed, fell in love with her, got her pregnant and placed a large part in the loss of the baby. What kind of man was he? What sort of man fell in love with a teen he could father!
He was a terrible person; he didn’t deserve the second chance he got. He should have annulled the marriage the moment he discovered he could function as a man again, not took her innocence! It didn’t matter that she wanted him too, he was the grown up and he should have stayed far away from her like he promised himself to.
He had failed his creator; the almighty was probably looking down at him disappointed and wishing he had not made him whole again. Had he not begged Allah for forgiveness and return of his pride as a man? Promising to not go whoring about with it like he did, to use it wisely!
He could not annul the marriage anymore since they had consummate it but he would set her free, it was probably what she wanted now. He prayed Allah forgave him for causing her so much pain but he would right his wrongs the best he could.
He would get a divorce but compensate her hugely, enough that she would never have to beg anyone for help anymore.
