The Trinity-Episode 4


Luckily, the driver had seen her on time and applied his brakes. By the time the car hit her, it was a very soft touch. She fell down more from shock than from the impact of the accident. She had no bruises on her neither did she feel any pains. The driver knowing very well he was at fault came down and helped her.

He was a gentleman and very courteous. He helped Sophie and insisted on taking her to the hospital for check up. Sophie initially refused because she felt she was fine. After they exchanged names, Jason, the driver was able to convince her and eventually took her to the hospital.

Jason was apparently well connected; Sophie breezed through the hospital formalities with ease even though the place was busy at that time. A number of the doctors and hospital staff knew him.

Jason pushed for Sophie to undergo an x-ray and proper check up. After all the checks, nothing serious was detected.

Jason insisted on taking Sophie wherever she was headed. On their way, Sophie drifted away, thinking of Michael and totally oblivious of the man driving by her side. Jason soon noticed this and tried to get her attention.
“Are you ok? Jason asked but Sophie didn’t hear him.

“Hello Madam” Jason called, tapping her shoulder.

Sophie came to herself, realizing that Jason had been trying to get her attention.

“Sorry, come again” Sophie said.

” You seem distracted, just wanted to know if you’re ok,” Jason asked.

“Yeah I am, I just have a couple of things on my mind, but I am ok” Sophie said.

“Ok then. I am really sorry for what happened earlier today, it’s entirely my fault. I had this family issue that I just couldn’t get off my mind. ” Jason said.

“Funny world, isn’t it? We all have seem to have personal problems eating us up,” Sophie said.

Jason offered to take her on a ride around town so that they could take the time to know each other. Sophie agreed to the ride and suggested they found somewhere they could sit and talk.

“Sounds perfect to me. At least, we can have a reason to smile at our worries.” Jason said.

They immediately struck a cord and talking was easy from them then on. They talked about life in general, made fun of things and laughed all through their conversation.

They totally forgot about all that was happening in their lives and just enjoyed the moment.

Meanwhile, Nicky was pissed off by the fact that Michael seemed to have completely ignored her. He refused to pick her calls or even return them.

Rumor had already gone out that Michael was in a relationship with one of his colleagues at work. Nicky had heard of it and honestly was not impressed.

Even though she had promised herself not to get intimately involved with Michael anymore she was not pleased with what she was hearing.

Out of anger, she stormed Michael’s office just about closing time to confront him. She apparently missed her sister by just a few minutes. She caught him alone and it became a heated argument as Michael denied responsibility for her pregnancy.

Unlike her quiet sister Sophie, Nicky could be quite vocal. She wasn’t one to take things lying low. The more they argued, the more the rage in her heart grew.

“Look Michael, you can mess around with Sophie but you can’t deny responsibility for your child. ” Nicky said.

Michael tried to drive her away from his office and it turned into a bit of a physical fight. As they struggled, Nicky suddenly felt a sharp pain in her abdomen. She looked down and saw some blood running down her dress. Almost immediately, she felt a choking sensation and found herself gasping for air.
Michael soon noticed that she was no longer struggling with him and that she was fainting. He immediately borrowed the company car and rushed her to the hospital.
At the hospital, Nicky insisted that Michael should call her sister, Sophie. She wanted her by her side.
Michael called Sophie but she refused to answer his call. Sophie thought Michael had now come to his senses and was probably calling to apologize. After calling several times, he finally sent her a text that got her attention.
“Oh no! Jason, my sister was just rushed to the hospital.” Sophie told Jason. She called Michael to ask him what had happened
“I am really not sure,” said Michael. “When you get here, I am sure I can explain better”
He gave her the name of the hospital and promised to wait at the reception.
Sophie and Jason quickly rushed to the hospital together.

Michael was waiting at the reception. He was running up to her when he paused in shock as he saw a man beside her. He was not surprised that Sophie was with a different guy but this guy in question was his estranged elder brother.
