Her Dad’s call came in while she was about dialing Angela’s number….
It rang the first time… But she didn’t pick up… Something she had never done before else she was not close to her phone that she could miss his call…. She always take his call even before it starts ringing
But that day was quite different… She was with her phone but couldn’t pick his call… She was still restless and nervous… But the reason for all these wasn’t clear to her… Tho she concluded that its because she was pregnant that’s why she wasn’t feeling right that day….
Deep down inside of her… She knew it was not just the pregnancy… But she couldn’t identify what was off
Her phone rang for the third time
She stared at her phone screen
Took a long deep breath
Closed her eyes
And picked the call
“What is wrong with you Cassandra! She yelled at herself inside
As she placed the phone on her left ear… Tapping her right index finger on the table…. Unknown to her she stopped breathing as she heard her father’s husky voice
📞Cassandra!📞 he called out her name after not hearing her say anything
She jerked up as she heard him called her name
📞Good… Good morning Dad📞… She managed to breath out the words
📞Nothing is good about this morning!📞 he yelled
📞And dont you dare Dad me!📞
📞Whats going on?📞… Somehow Cassy regain herself on hearing the tone of her father… She was even forced to check if truly he was the one calling
📞i never expected such from you Cassandra… How could you stoop so low to That extent knowing your reputation in this country and even aboard… Let’s even forget about me and the family’s name… Where did you keep your sense of reasoning huh? Have you forgotten so soon that thousands of people look up to you?… Have you forgotten you’re people’s role model?… How could you be in such scandal how? How!? 📞
With the look on Cassy’s face… She don’t need to tell you that she was totally and completely lost
📞Dad… I… I… I’m confused what are you talking about? 📞 she asked Genuinely lost
📞Dont you dare. Insult me with your lies… You this disgraceful daughter of her mother 📞… And just then Mrs Dickson yelled over the phone
📞God forbid… I’ll. Never be mother of such daughter… I curse the day I conceived you 📞
Tears began to stream down her cheeks
Nothing hurts more than people accusing you of something and you yourself have no idea about what it is you’ve done and worst of all… No one is ready to tell you what it is you’ve done…. You just remain in the dark and still take all the blames 💔
📞Mom… Dad if you both can hear me… I have no clue of what youre talking about… Can you just tell me please📞
📞This girl is not serious… Something that is going all over the internet You’re still asking what you did huh?📞 her mother said
📞Please end this call…. I just cant take this insult from this pretentious daughter 📞… And the call was disconnected
Cassandra legs became weak… Because she has been standing all along
She sat on the floor
And remembered her appointment with her lawyer…. She dailed his number… It was switched off… She dailed his other lines… Still off…
She threw her phone away so frustrated
“What is going on?
She asked herself
But then she remembered something
Wait!…. Did he said all over the Internet?
She got up immediately and picked her phone to go check what’s trending… And just then the door flung open
Angela walked in looking so pissed.. Her phone stretched out for Cassandra to see what was on the screen
Cassy collect the phone but didn’t look… Instead she picked up her test result and handed it to Angie
She collected it with her eyes fixed on Cassandra
She opened it and took out the result
“I was at the hospital this morning… I wanted to break the news to Derrick first but since you show up…I decided to tell you “. She said
“Impossible! Angela said as she glanced through the paper
“Sorry? Cassy asked
“You can’t be pregnant for him!
“I don’t get”
“What is it you don’t get huh?… Derrick isn’t the man for you!
“Hold up! Let it not be what I’m thinking”
“I don’t care what you’re thinking about! She yelled
Cassandra was still trying to understand what was going on… When the door flung open and Derrick walked in looking so Furious!
