(It’s in the morning at Grace’s house. She is all sweaty and in bed with Jason)
GRACE: (hugging Jason) Ohh my love, you know I wish me and you can have fun without sneaking.
JASON: (hugs back) Me too my love, sometimes I wonder what will happen when brother finds out about us.
GRACE: (sighs heavily) Nothing such will happen, right? Unless if you tell him.
JASON: No I won’t do such thing. Enough about William, let’s have fun!
GRACE: (under the sheets, giggles and kisses Jason. They had intimacy)
3 WEEKS LATER
(It was one hot afternoon when Grace and William are at their house chilling drinking tea)
WILLIAM: (sips tea) My love, this is a great time to speak to you.
GRACE: (sips tea) Talk? Talk about what, my love?
WILLIAM: (puts the tea down) We’ve been in this marriage for 3 years now. I think it’s time we have mini us running around in the yard.
GRACE: Uhm….yeah maybe…I mean yes, all of our married friends have children so why not us? Uhm… (Clears throat) We should try.
WILLIAM: (smiles) I’m happy that we are on the same page.
(The next day Grace and William made love and everything was okay after that)
3 MONTHS LATER
(Grace and William are at the hospital. They are holding hands while sitting on a bench and waiting for the results, finally the doctor call them to come inside the office)
DOCTOR: Mr and Mrs Mbedu, I have the results with me.
GRACE: What do they say? I have been feeling weird lately, my body tired and I was throwing up…..
DOCTOR: (opening the envelope and reading it) Mrs Mbedu, calm down. The results say……..you are pregnant! Congratulations!
WILLIAM: (excited) Thank you Doctor, I never thought this day would come. My wife is pregnant with my child!
GRACE: (fake smiles) Believe it, baby. So for how long?
DOCTOR: It’s actually for 5 months.
WILLIAM: 5 months?
DOCTOR: Correct Mr Mbedu.
GRACE: (touches her belly) But why isn’t my belly showing? Is it normal?
DOCTOR: Yes, don’t panic. Your baby may be growing, Mrs Mbedu. So please come back after every 2 weeks for a scan.
GRACE: Understood. Thanks for the info.
DOCTOR: Anytime. I have to attend other patients, so I’ll see you in 2 weeks time, right?
GRACE: Of course. Let us go then. My love?
WILLIAM: (lost in his thoughts) Huh? Yes baby? Are we going already?
GRACE: Yes. Let’s go, I’m feeling tired.
(The doctor, Grace and Will exist the office.)
Tell us: What do you think William was thinking about?
