Trauma Episode 20

Wale gently rose up and proceeded to the door. When he got to the sitting room and bade Jummy's mother farewell, she noticed the stern expression on his face. As soon as he left the house, the woman went upstairs to Jummy's room.
Jummy lay on the floor weeping profusely as incessant knocks was landing on the door.
"Jummy this is your mother, open the door " She said from the other side of the door.
"Mom please I would like to be alone for the moment " Jummy replied.
The knocking continued .
"Jummy open up please, I have an important issue to discuss with you " she said but Jummy didn't reply.
"I know you are doing this because your father has gone out. You won't dare try this with him around " her Mom said.
"Please leave me alone mom" Jummy replied with tears reflecting from her voice.
"Am not going to leave here until you open this door" Her mom said.
Seconds later the door opened and her mom was surprised to find her daughter completely soaked with tear.
"What is it Jummy? Why are you crying so profusely? " she asked.
Jummy didn't reply instead she broke into tears again. Her Mom pulled her closer and wiped her tears.
"It's alright. If this is about the sudden marriage, I will try to convince your father to stop it" She said.
"It's not that I don't love Wale, I love him and I want to get married to him" Jummy said.
"So what is the reason behind all these? " her mom asked.
"Mom, am pregnant " Jummy said.
Her mom was bemused to hear the news.
"No, you can't do this to us. How? Why? " she asked in confusion.
Jummy then took time to explain all that happened to her. When she had finished, her mom pitied her.
"Am so sorry you had to go through such a horrible experience. But why don't you tell me on phone " she asked.
"I never thought it would turn out like this, please I need you to help me break it to Dad" Jummy said.
"Don't worry, I know how I would break it to him. Come down stairs with me " She said and they both left the room.
As soon as the car carrying Mr Adewuyi drove into the compound that evening, Jummy's Mom who had devise a means to convene her daughter's story to her husband braced herself. The door opened and he came in looking highly infuriated.
"Welcome honey" she swiftly greeted.
"Don't greet me woman, just tell me where that your bastard child is " He said angrily.
"But honey what are you saying? I don't understand you " she asked.
"I mean your daughter, where is she " he roared.
"Please darling calm down and tell me what happened" She said holding his hand.
"Don't dare touch me woman" he said as broke his hand free from hers.
Jummy who was at the kitchen hearing the noise from the sitting came out to check what was happening.
He saw him coming out of the kitchen.
"You bastard, what did you tell Wale when he came here this morning? " he asked.
Jummy couldn't say anything, she knew it would be in her best interest to remain silent.
"Please sit down and let's talk about this " her mom pleaded.
"Don't let me unleash my rage on you woman"
"Is it true you are pregnant? " he asked turning to Jummy who only nodded in reply.
Suddenly he came upon her with his heavy hand and hit her in the face. Having received the first hit, Jummy retreated as she knew more of it was on the way. He came after her again but this time she was shielded by her mother.
"What's wrong with you Kunle? Do you want to kill her along with the pregnancy? " her Mom said angrily.
"I don't know where you get that thing, but if you know what is good for you, don't let me remind you tomorrow morning to go flush it out " he said before he walked angrily into his room.
