"She's my daughter" his words resounded in my head.
I scoffed and looked at him. No; I probably didn't hear him correctly.
I looked at Bethel and she was holding her tummy, her eyes filled with the expected shock.
Then, I took my eyes back to dad.
"What're you talking about?" I asked, my voice coming out faintly.
He looked at the floor and clapped his hands and immediately, two boys came into the room.
"Take her back to her room" he told them and they went for Bethel on the bed.
"No!" She muttered as she stood on her feet with the boys holding her by both hands.
"What're you talking about?" She asked weakly, looking at dad.
Dad signalled at the boys and they took her out of the room. Then, I was left with just him.
Bethel's Pov:I couldn't tell why the boys tied me up after bringing me back to the room. I thought the so called boss said he didn't want me to get hurt?I was so restless and scared - and confused. What did Jackson father mean by saying I was his daughter? Was that a lie or what?Of course, it was a lie! There was no way that could be true. He can't possibly be my father. I mean, I wouldn't be here in the first place - tied up like a slave.I breathed out deeply. What could his reasons be for bringing me here? Whatever they are, they're definitely not good. How do I get out of here?Oh God! My baby.Thank goodness there was no bleeding yet. At least, it meant the baby was still safe. I just hope I get out of this alive. I hope Ryan gets to meet complete with his baby. I hope nothing goes wrong.Suddenly, the door opened and two boys came in, on
Nicole's Pov:I stood beside Bethel's bed in the hospital as the doctor checked her with his stethoscope.She was still sleeping but according to the doctor, she'll be fine.Ryan was sitting on the edge of the bed, holding her hand. while his mum and Bethel's mum were also standing - hopefully."Double the dosage" the doctor said to the nurse on the other side of the bed and she nodded and did something to the drip."Doctor, how's she?" Ryan's mum asked immediately and the doctor sighed and brought down the stethoscope from his ear."Like I earlier said, she's fine. You don't have a thing to worry about. And the baby's fine as well" he replied and I took in a deep breath, the same time with Ryan."So...she was really pregnant?" Bethel's Mum asked and the doctor just nodded to that."She'll be awake soon and will be very hungry. So, I'd
Ryan's Pov:I furrowed my brows as I looked at him. What's he talking about? What's wrong with the baby?I was scared to ask but just needed him to spill it out right away.He looked at the paper again before handing it to me.I collected it hesitantly and looked into it. What's this?"Actually sir" he continued."it's not just a baby...but babies".My eyes beamed immediately as my lips dropped open.What??I flinched as I looked into the paper again. Then, I understood what the diagram meant. It was a scan revealing two curled up babies.Oh my God!"Although, we can't tell their genders for now because the pregnancy is still in the early stage of it's first trimester. But the most important thing is, she's carrying a set of twins" he added.I smiled as a happy tear almost escape
Bethel's Pov:I looked in amazement as they walked in. I hadn't seen her since we graduated from High School.And oh! There was someone else with her - a young charming boy."What're you doing here?" Ryan asked her immediately he turned and saw her."Please, I'm not here for trouble. I...I just came to see Bethel - to say hi to her". She replied instantly, raising her both hands in the air.They walked in fully into the room, her son beside her."Come on Matilda, let's talk outside"Ryan's mum said to my mum and they left the room together."Um...hi Bethel" Shirley cleared her throat and said."Hi aunt Bethel" her son said in a sweet tone."Mummy told me about you".Huh? She did?'Hi" I tried to smile back at him."How're you feeling now?" He asked and I was amused at the smartness in hi
Bethel's Pov:"How long does it have to take, Ryan?" I asked impatiently as he kept driving for what seemed like forever to me."Chill, Bethel. Come on" he grouse and I rolled my eyes.Well, I couldn't wait to see the surprise.I sighed and brought out my phone, going through the net.Hm."This stuff is really trending online, Ryan: Gentle Aura caught hugging a strange lady in front of an hotel" I read out the headline to him.I couldn't believe Nicole's picture was all over the net."When will you be going to see your dad?" He suddenly asked and my countenance changed."I don't know" I muttered."I don't think I even wanna see him"."Bethel...""I'm just scared, Ryan" I cut him off, calmly tho."That man tried to kill me! He'd have consciously cut off
