this is a story about a friend of mine! i meet her a while ago for dinner and i was shocked that she is pregnant i was about to congratulate her but i don't see any wedding ring or a trace of it in her finger.
i set in there and talk like i did not notice anything we smile but i notice she is looking for something maybe a word something that she wants to hear or maybe a question that she wants to hear, but she did not hear it so she asked me herself..
are you not going to ask where's the father of this baby i'm carrying, i was speechless but i acted i was about to ask but the act was so lame that she notice. and then she tell me story glad that i did bring a tissue... i was crying all the time but she was not and i asked her why and she said she manage to practice not to cry because she is already tired of it..
here's the story!!
She meet a man in a dating site and she falls in love with him so she traveled hundreds if not thousand miles away from home to see this man in his country. The first time they meet they both know that something is wrong and they will never make it to the relationship. Sad thing is they are both afraid to hurt each other so they stay together and of course if two people are sleeping together temptation comes (she was just a poor girl she don't have a money to afford her own place) then she got pregnant.
she came home, since that man already found another woman and maybe she think she loves him to set him free... the man send's her money "which if it was me i will never accept it" but i know she needed it with the society she's living with and her status as a single mom there's no way she can have a decent job unless she will hide her status as a single mom. "yeah i know i hate this kind of society" . She practically don't go out in her place, only when she needed to have food of go to a doctor.
She have this heart condition and it's risky for her to carry a baby thats why she have to go to the doctor at least once a weak to check and she does that. "her family don't have enough to afford this kind of life style" thats why she have to accept his financial help even if she don't want to do it. For now she don't have a choice. The doctor say she has to be in bed a total bed rest but what can she do she needs to work. Good thing is she's working at home there's not much risk "online teacher" she is a teacher before she left the country and now she cant get a decent teaching job because of her situation. Sometimes i think she should have aborted the baby when the guy asked her too but she is so afraid to do so so she just decided to come home.
Talking about financial help the guy pay her place and send her money for other expenses like 200usd a month, which is a pretty penny in my country but for a pregnant girl who needs vitamin and medicine who don't get anything from her parents i don't think it is a good money. The Money was good at first but then as time goes by it decrease with a lot of excuses.
The reason I meet him is she needed money to have her ultra sound just like what the doctor asked her to do but she don't have money. So she needed some... too bad that right now i'm broke too i have enough to pay half of her bill because she need to stay in the hospital for at least two days since she feel some pain in her stomach. The guy said he will send but the he was not able to do so since he is busy.
a five minutes walk to the atm machine and a 3 minutes maybe less to do transfer thats 8 minutes you cant do it, how can you be so busy when you have one hour lunch break... at least thats how long a lunch break in a regular office... the point is if you really want to do it then you can find ways to do it if you don't give a sh*t on it then nothing will really happen!!
this thing happen when you don't really mean a thing to the guy but you have to look up to him since you have no choice!!
