Chapter 6

1 month later.
This was the third time she was throwing up today. She rinsed her mouth with water from the tap and straightened up to find Catherine staring at her.
'What is it?'
'Faridah. You are pregnant.'
'No I'm not. I'm just sick. I'll be fine in a few days.'
'Faridah don't you dare lie to me.'
She stared at the sink, the tiles, the shower curtain, anything but Catherine.
'How long?'
'A month and three weeks.'
'And you didn't see it fit to tell me.'
Catherine sounded hurt and Faridah winced. 'I'm sorry. I was just... afraid that you'll think less of me.'
'Faridah, sure I'm disappointed, but I can never think less of you.'
She sighed. 'So what did your parents say?'
Faridah winced again. 'I actually haven't told them.'
'Faridah, this is big, this is important. You should have told them a long time ago!'
'I was waiting for Ahmed to accept it.'
'Wait, you mean he denied being the father of your child?'
'Yes.'
'That bastard.' Catherine swore.
'How could he?!'
'He's just scared Cath, he'll accept it eventually.'
'Stop making excuses for him! He's a coward that's what he is.'
'Catherine!'
'You have to tell your parents Faridah.'
'I will.'
Catherine wasn't convinced. 'When?'
'On Monday.'
'Faridah.'
'I will, I promise.'
Catherine sighed again but thankfully didn't push it. 'We have Statistics in ten minutes, hurry.'

'Terry please, I'll be forever grateful. Just this once. Please.'
The girl raked a hand through her short hair and glared at Faridah.
'You'll get me in trouble.'
'I won't tell anyone you told me anything. Please.'
'He's at that new bar. The one close to Mama G's restaurant.'
'Thank you.' Faridah smiled and Terry grunted, shooing her away.
'Whatever. Get out of here.'
She smiled and jogged away, flagging down a taxi and stopping at the restaurant before walking to the bar. She noticed people were running away from it and she stopped one of them to question him. 'What's going on over there?'
'Cultists.' Was all he said before pulling away from her grip. She sighed as she kept on walking to the bar. 'Oh Ahmed. What have you done now?'
The bar was completely empty by the time she got there, but she could hear commotion at the back.
She stopped at the sight in front of her. A girl was on the floor on the ground while the boys beat her with a belt and Ahmed stood by, sipping a drink with a smile on his face.

She searched the faces quickly and was relieved when James wasn't one of them.
'Ahmed!'
He turned to look at her and raised his glass in her direction. She walked over and stood in front of him, crossing her arms over her chest.
'What are you doing Ahmed?'
'Teaching that fool a lesson.'
'Ahmed please stop this, let her go. This isn't you.'
'And you know who I am? What the heck made you assume you know who I am? You don't know me Faridah. You've only seen the parts of me I allowed you to see. This,' He pointed to the boys beating the girl. 'Is who I am. Serves her right for insulting me anyway.'
Faridah shook her head and tried to pull the boys away from the girl. They pushed her and she fell to the floor.
'Stay out of it Faridah. This is not your concern. Go home.'
She lay on the floor, clutching her middle. She'd landed on her stomach.
Then men barged through the door dressed in police uniforms. They arrested the boys quickly and put the bruised and battered girl on a stretcher. Faridah watched Ahmed laugh as the girl groaned in pain and realized James was right. Ahmed wasn't the good guy here.
She was going to tell her parents she was pregnant.
