Strange saga – Season 1 [Episode 1 – 4]

I had been trying on clothes for the past two
hours, my sister watched me from the bed, I had
come to spend the weekend at home
“Do you think this is okay?”
“Emilia its fine, all your clothes are conservative,
wonder why you bother” she rolled on her
tummy, had been twisting for the past one hour
but when I asked she said she was on her
period…
“Because i want them to like me”I said
“They not gonna like you based on your clothes”
“But its a factor”
I had finally agreed to see Martins parents after
he had kept nagging me on it, to avoid suspicion
about not being serious about the relationship i
had given in, i was gonna go on tuesday but i
decided to try out clothes since i was home and
my sister was around, but she wasn’t helping and
she seemed not to be interested in whatever i
wore, not convinced by what she said, I pulled
offf the skirt and top and decided on a gown
“Why you going to see the parents so soon?”
“He says he wants me to..”
” Well they’ll like you, everybody does” Erica said,
that was the nicest thing she had said to me
ever, but I decided she just wanted me to be
relaxed, I turned to her, she was trying not to
writhe in pain, so I told her
” Thanks” and zipped up my dress “what about
my hair, do I need to pack it up.”
“Should be up, more decent..as for the
makeup..arh” she winced, I rushed to her side
“Are you okay..?”
“Yeah.. Yeah I’m fine” I wasn’t convinced though
“You sure you are..?”
Erica got up suddenly and dashed to the
bathroom, I was frozen for a second, i wanted to
follow her when I looked down and saw the
bedsheets..I stared at it my heart constricted…
Erica came out cleaning her mouth, she saw my
look and the bedsheets..
“Don’t worry..I ll wash the sheets”
“Erica..how could you..”
“Its just sheets..I ll wash it”she went and took
some pain reliever tablets, I just gaped at her
still frozen, I finally found my voice
“Don’t lie to me Erica, I’m a medical student you
can’t loose that much blood.. unless..”
Erica just folded her body in in more pain
“Unless you had an abortion”
Erica didn’t deny it, she was silent, I glanced at
the sheet again speechless, when I found my
voice, I touched her
“Why..what happened”
“I got pregnant OK..I couldn’t tell Dad..I had to
do it, a friend took me to a doctor, gave me
some pills..”
“That wasn’t the best option”
“You don’t know anything about that..you’re a
f—–g virgin, do you know how much I crave
that..Dad already hates me, he ll disown me
otherwise..i had to do it” her arms were tightly
crossed, she rocked back and forth “and don’t go
preaching to me about how its a sin and all that”
When she had calmed down, I decided to speak
again
“Well..I won’t lie to you..its a big sin before God”
“Well I’m no Christian” she rubbed her stomach in
pain, I began to cry
“God why, why did you allow her to go this far,
why?”I asked in agony…
Third Person pov
Erica had tears in her eyes too but she was
trying to be strong, she envied her sister a lot,
being able to keep herself but she had lost it a
long time ago by mistake and had just decided to
continue in the act, when the baby entered, she
knew she couldn’t keep it or tell the father who
would never marry her, they weren’t in a serious
relationship and Joseph might hate her for it
thinking she was trying to trap him into marriage,
it also was a big disgrace to her family, seeing
her father was a renowned Man of God and she
being the first daughter was supposed to be an
example, when the doctor gave her the option of
an abortion pill she decided to take it anyway,
she had no idea it would cause her so much
pain. She knew she wasn’t going to do it again
but knew she needed help, glancing at her sister
who was still crying like she was the one who
had gotten pregnant and was in pain, Erica took
her in her arms as Emilia hugged her tightly back
” please don’t tell Dad” Erica pleaded
Emilia shook her head and tried cleaning her
tears
“I won’t.. but I fear he has seen it”she said, Erica
sighed knowing about her fathers dreams
especially as Emilia had told her her father had
seen her crying in agony like now
” I won’t do it again..I promise, I ll break up with
Joe..I’m so sorry”she bowed her head in tears
Emilia’s pov
I stared at her for long then said
“You can’t do it on your own sis..you think I’m
stronger than you..no this could have happened
to anyone..its because I have God inside of me,
he helps me”
“You don’t understand, I’m far gone”she said
“Jesus died for you for this moment when you
feel helpless, he can save you, forgive you for
what you have done and give you a brand new
life” I was preaching but I couldn’t hold it back,
If I had tried to talk more to her she wouldn’t
have gone so far. Erica looked at me with tear
stained eyes then gave me her hand
‘”Please pray for me”She said.
She feigned illness as she remained in the room,
I was her alibi, I didn’t go to see Martins parents
and always came home to check on her, we
bonded more during that period of two weeks till
she got better and the bleeding stopped…I was
glad it wasn’t worse than that..I was happy God
gave her a second chance.
