Freda rested on her back and asked to hold her little one. But the nurse who was holding the baby didn’t look happy.

Davina Diaries Fiction: Cords That Bind Episode 2

The baby was lifeless when he came out. It was a baby boy but unfortunately, it was not alive. Freda took one look and instantly knew that her baby was long gone. She wept bitterly. It hurt her very much, just like the death of her late mother. Even though she had nothing to offer in terms of giving the child a healthy living condition, it was the only thing that could make her life worth living since she didn’t feel apart of any family.

She cried for her loss. It really hurt her but sixteen-year-old Freda never stopped praying. That was what her mother had taught her. She was brought up that way, so it became part of her.  To her, God keeping her alive through her condition was enough for her. She didn’t ask for more. She only spent time thanking God and asking for longer life. She wanted to stay alive, even if it was to endure the pains of the earth.

Freda had never set her eyes on her father. She had only seen him in pictures. According to her late mother, her father died serving the country in a peacekeeping war, far away in Rwanda. He was a military man and left for his mission when Freda’s mother was only four months pregnant.

That was the last time Freda’s mother set her eyes on him. The next thing she heard was that her husband had died at the war front. That was when things began changing for her mother. Through her struggles, she was able to raise Freda until she died.

You Are Reading: Davina Diaries Fiction: Cords That Bind Episode 2

Meanwhile, William stood at the reception waiting for good news that Freda had delivered safely. He was on his way to work when he heard Freda’s cry from the kiosk. William had gotten married recently and for three years he and his wife Bertha had been hoping and praying to God for a child. Although they had both been medically proven healthy enough to have children, his wife was yet to conceive.  In a nutshell, they were a good couple and Christians too. Bertha, however, had her own shortcomings. She was clinging on to William’s past.

There was that one time that William was caught cheating on Bertha in his office. They were not yet married then. It took time for Bertha to forgive him but she eventually did.

Bertha was a good wife by all standards but she always used William’s cheating past against him. Anytime they had issues just like any other couple, she always found a way of referring William to his past.

This attitude made William perpetually feel that he owed his wife a lot and that he could never pay off the debt no matter how much he tried. The more Bertha made references to William’s past, the more William withdrew from her. There were those times when the situation became so unbearable for him that he almost gave up on his marriage.

The only thing he could do now to keep his marriage safe and also stop Bertha from hounding him about his past was to avoid conflict as much as possible.

He had a passion for kids and always wished for a couple of his own.
Finally, he saw a nurse coming out from Freda’s ward. He quickly approached her and asked.

Nurse, how is the young lady doing, the one I brought in a couple of hours ago. How is she? William asked.
Oh, she is doing well sir. The Nurse answered.
Has she put to bed now? What about the baby? William quickly followed up.
Hmm, it’s unfortunate sir, she lost the baby. We did everything we could. The Nurse said and went away, leaving William there speechless.

Freda remained at the hospital for three days. William took care of her feeding and all other hospital expenses throughout her stay. She was finally discharged on the third day.

William couldn’t bear the fact that he was going to drop Freda back on the unsafe streets from where he picked her. He needed to do something about it.

In the meantime, he took Freda to a hotel and booked a room for her. He planned to keep her there until he gathered the courage to tell his wife about this Freda girl he had met.

But getting home from the hotel where Freda was, he was shocked to discover that his wife Bertha was already aware of the situation. As soon as he opened the door to their living room, there stood Bertha, standing right behind the door and looking very angry.

Can you tell the business you were having at Le Domino Hotel? As far as I was concerned, you were supposed to be at your office, meeting Josh and his partners to seal the deal. Bertha said.

She was a smart lady. She had made all her enquiries and was well informed about what was going on at William’s office. She knew William could give an excuse that he went to have a business meeting at the hotel just like he had lied to her a long time long ago, only to find out that he had been at his office flirting with a colleague.
