                     (THE MEMORY LANE)

Mrs. Bello exited the discomfort of the car before it even parked 

fully. Her brain was in overdrive and being confined in a car with her 

husband, whose silence was more dangerous than a pointed gun was 

almost running her insane. He had been quiet throughout the drive 

home from Amara‟s party, with his gaze outside the window and she 

knew that he was trying to come up with a logical explanation for her 

actions in the party. She had been too obvious in that gathering and, 

thinking of a logical lie to give her husband when he finally probes 

her was a major worry. She did not even know what was scaring her 

most right now. 

She hurriedly entered her personal room and locked the door 

before the senator thought about probing her but he did not seem in a 

hurry to do that. She flung her purse onto the bed and started pacing 

restlessly. No! It can‟t be! It just can‟t be! She wiped sweats of perspiration off her forehead. This had to be a great coincidence, she 

thought shakily. Of everyone in the world, it can‟t be Amara! It cannot be HER!

“Oh my God!” she exclaimed and crumbled onto the bed. She rubbed her sweaty palms across her face before burying her head in it. Her mistake could not be closing in on her! Not now! Never! And 

Alex? The pregnancy in Amara‟s womb? “OH God, it just can‟t be!!!”

                      <>20+ YEARS AGO<>

Katherine Bello arrived at the hospital, finally deciding to allay her fears before the situation got out of control and becomes 

exceedingly obvious to all. She could not explain what the problem was, but heaven knows she definitely had her suspicions and it scared the hell out of her. The fear of the unknown had prevented her from going to the doctor because she did not want the doctor‟s diagnosis to tally with her instincts. As she was allowed into the 

doctor‟s office, she prayed to heaven that her thoughts were wrong, because if not, she was in for deep shit.

“Hello doctor” she said as she entered the doctor‟s office and 

sat down instantly, to hide her shaking legs. She was using a hospital distant from home now, so this was not their regular family doctor. 

She could not afford to risk it.

The doctor smiled. “Good evening ma‟am, how may I help you please?”

Mrs. Bello sighed softly. “I have been feeling somehow lately, for some weeks now to be precise. I expected it to go away so I 

ignored it but it is not going away” she said, beating about the bush.

The doctor nodded, with her professional look firmly in place. 

“Can you explain the symptoms you have experienced?”

Mrs. Bello nodded vigorously. “Erm…I am sure it is nothing serious. Just some feelings of dizziness, desire to eat all the time and also irritation and nausea” she rambled. “I mean, I don‟t erm… feel 

nausea or urge to vomit all the time, just once in a while, it can even be overlooked… I hope it is nothing serious”

The doctor smiled and her eyes seemed to probe Mrs. Bello like her eyes alone was enough to carry out the needed examination. She smiled further. “I think I know what the matter is” the doctor said. 

“But since I am sure you don‟t expect me to „think‟, I would call someone to run a test on you. The results would be out within minutes, so it would not take long” she said, frightening Mrs. Bello.

She swallowed. “Are you sure I don‟t need to come back?” she asked nervously.

“No! The results of the test would be out very fast” the doctor assured. She picked her intercom and called a nurse, who appeared almost immediately. The doctor gave her a few instructions which Mrs. Bello did not listen to as her mind raced on the possible outcome  of the test. With stiff legs, Mrs. Bello followed the nurse into the lab where the test was carried out. 

Mrs. Bello sat in the waiting room, looking at the ticking hand of the wall clock. She had never been so frightened in her life. Her 

brain rotated on whether or not to leave. She could not afford to have 

her instincts right because only doom was hers if the result of the test 

proved that she was indeed pregnant. She stood up and she turned towards the door to leave, a nurse called her.

She turned with a shaky smile on her face.

“The result is out ma, you can go in now” the nurse said. “Were you about to leave?” 

She shook her head, ignoring the question. “That was fast, are you sure it is ready?” she had turned as pale as sheet.

“Yes. Please, come with me ma”

The nurse led her back to the doctor‟s office where she hastily sat her pale form. Without wasting time, the doctor declared. “This is 

the test result” she gave her a brown envelope. “My assumptions were confirmed” she smiled affectionately. “Congratulations ma, you 

are three months pregnant” 

The news landed like an atomic bomb, rubbing her of her speech. “There… there must be a mistake” she stammered shakily.

The doctor frowned. “There is no mistake. This should be good news, are you not married ma?” the doctor asked, looking from the 

patient‟s pale face to the ring on the left hand. Mrs. Bello totally ignored the doctor and stood up, leaving the office without a backwards glance.



Mrs. Bello roamed her sitting room with nerves all over the place. Her son, Alex was taking his nap, and she was glad that he was not down, disturbing her. 

Pregnant? How can she do this? Her husband had been gone for over four months now, to the United States, establishing a new company there. Because of the rigor of starting a new company and the necessity to be there to pioneer and kick start this initial stage, her husband had gone to be there personally and had been there for 

more than four months, so there was no way in this world that this pregnancy could be her husbands. It could only possibly be for one person; their driver. 

Being away from her husband for months had been more than she could handle, and when she complained to her friend, Bimpe, she had given her a „solution‟. Her friend had pointed out her strong and sexy-looking driver who had been driving her for about two years now. Though she was still very young, he was definitely older than 

her, so she would not be a sugar mummy to him or anything like that. Cheating on her husband seemed like a ridiculous idea at first 

but when his absence became irritating, she gave in to the advice. It proved to be a really difficult thing to do because all her seductions 

seemed not to be working on Habeeb, her driver. He was a strong man who did not seem like one to easily fall into temptations. She wore really exposing clothes, he noticed, she knew he did but his reactions never exceeded simple glances which could almost be overlooked. Katherine Bello almost thought there was something 

wrong with her own appeal. Getting Habeeb had taken all the feminine cunning tactics she could have or even come up with, but eventually, Habeeb fell for her charms and beauty. He had treated 

her better than any man – even her husband - had ever treated her. 

He had treated her like a teenager, even though she was thirty. He had given her flowers, taken her on dates, but still kept the 

relationship hidden from all and sundry.

But now, this is the result. She waved the pregnancy result and crushed it in her fist. She was carrying the result of her infidelity in 

her womb. Right at that moment, she hated the child she was carrying. She had risked her happiness and home for moments of 

pleasure. It had seemed like a good idea then, but now, she was face to face with reality. How could she hide this? She had always feared 

abortion more than anything on earth. Ever since she watched her best friend die from abortion, she had sworn never to attempt it. As bad as this situation seemed, Katherine still did not want to die. But how could she hide the pregnancy from her husband who would be coming back in a week?

Ever since she gave birth to Alex, four years ago, Katherine hadn‟t been pregnant ever since and she had been glad because it had been really tough for her when she carried Alex in her womb; it had

been even worse during labor, that she had to go through Caesarian 

Session when her life was threatened. Now, she could not afford to lose her family. She could not lose her husband or make her son lose 

his happy home, which might happen if her husband found out about her infidelity or the ungodly result in her belly. What could she do?


        *.     +*  

The day Mr. Bello was to arrive, Katherine Bello made sure she used a really tight girdle to flatten her already bulging belly. The 

belly looked perfectly flat after using the belt and she was a bit relieved. Her next worry had been how to keep it on for the rest of 

the week before her husband returned to the States. She thought of pretending to be sick, knowing that her caring husband would be too 

concerned about her health, to even think of making love to her. That

would be hard though, because they had been apart for months. It was natural that he would want to perform his husbandly rights. 

Mr. Bello had arrived and the excitement had been great. Alex had fussed over his father and Katherine‟s nervous state hadn‟t been 

so obvious. She had carried out her plan of being sick. Her husband had been really caring, taking care of her even when it was obvious 

that he would rather be doing something else. He said it so many times but whenever he tried to remove her clothes, she would 

pretend to catch a cold and he would let go of his desires to take care 

of her. It was a really stressful week and she could feel the tension in 

her husband when the week elapsed. Her suggested staying longer to 

take care of her but she quickly turned it down, asking him to take 

care of the company abroad instead.

Knowing that his departure would be for another couple of months, Katherine decided to take care of the mess before he finally arrived. The first thing she did was to fire Habeeb. It had been really 

hard, especially when she saw the hurt and betrayed look on 

Habeeb‟s face. She tried to pay him off but he refused like the arrogant man he was. He left without a penny but Katherine could not even think of calling him back. She could not allow him find out about the pregnancy. No one was aware, only her friend. Thanks to her stature and girdle, the pregnancy stayed hidden, but as she 

approached seven months, she had to put on loose clothes to hide the really bulging belly, despite the girdle. She had done really stressful 

things, hoping that it would bring down the pregnancy but nothing worked. Finally, she gave up attempts to have a miscarriage and 

decided to see how she could discard the child after birth.

When she was seven months plus, she took Alex to her friend‟s place to spend his two months long vacation there. That way, she 

knew that she would have an excuse for her husband if he called to ask of Alex. She wanted to go to a faraway place to give birth to the  

child; somewhere where she was not known. A place where gossip could not float to her husband's ears. Her friend told her of a village 

and a woman there, who could help with what she wanted to do.

Mrs. Bello travelled to the village and was able to breathe freely for once. She stayed with the woman that Bimpe, her friend, told her 

of, until she finally gave birth to the child. The baby girl had been pretty but she had hated her at once for all the trouble she had to go through because of her. She would have left the village immediately after giving birth to the child but the woman told her to wait for two more weeks before leaving, in order to use the time to shrink the size 

of her belly and also feed the child. After the two weeks, she made sure the woman abandoned the child in a dumping ground where anyone could easily see her. After that, she left the village, glad that it was over at last.............
