NABEELAH EPISODE 12

.

.

We were allowed to see Fatimah the next day, but we were told not let people to visit her, only two people will be allowed in the ward at a time, I entered with my mum.  It was a mixed feeling for me when I saw her; I felt sad to see her in her present state and also happy to see her alive as well as my daughter. She looked weak and exhausted. When I congratulated her, she only answered with a smile.

.

“I want to see Nabeelah” she said quietly

.

I smiled and answered her that “Nabeelah will be here either you requested for it or not but we will only allow her when the doctor declare to us that you are fit to receive visitors, mummy is here to help you with anything you want”

.

“Please I have to see her, it is very urgent” she insisted in a weak voice. My mum persuaded her to calm down and concentrate on her well-being, when she insisted so much, the doctor also adviced that we should call her Nabeelah.

.

When Nabeelah came, mum had to excuse us because we must not be more than two in the ward at a time. Fatimah began to cry when she set her eyes on Nabeelah.

.

“My dear, will you stop crying, Nabeelah you had been calling for is here, remember your state of health and stop all these you are doing” I persuaded

.

“My friend, don’t cry, today is your day of joy, you are alive to see your child, your husband said you wanted to see me and I am here, what do you want to tell me?” Nabeelah asked

.

“I know that you are saying this because you don’t know what I had done to both you, I did a lot and I want you to forgive me” Fatimah sobbed

.

I was surprised by what she said, I don’t think she had done anything bad to us, she even helped me, I owe my life for the help she did for me but I don’t know if she did anything bad to Nabeelah. But when Nabeelah also said Fatimah didn’t wrong her, I started to think that maybe the trauma she encountered in the delivery is affecting her mental state.

.

“What have you done” Nabeelah Inquired

.

“I didn’t believe in the love in first sight before I met Ja’far, but I fell in love with him the first day he came to our house, I love to be in his company when you asked me to be with you so that you won’t be alone, I admired his height and his sense of humour, I don’t know how to go about it because you both love each other greatly, I tried to seduce Ja’far as much as I can, but he didn’t notice me, so, I extinguish your nikkah preparation just to have Ja’far for myself, please forgive me” Fatimah said as she broke into tears

.

I was perplexed by the words coming from her; I don’t know what to say. How is it possible for all these to happen? “My dear, please wipe your tears and don’t get yourself into the matter between me and Nabeelah, it is Allah’s decree, even if you don’t love me, I can’t marry Nabeelah because we were not compatible, she’s AS while I was SS….”

.

“I am AA” Nabeelah interrupted

.

I couldn’t believe my ears, the result had proven Nabeelah to be AS, and does genotype change?  I now felt completely confused “AA? How come? Please both of you should rescue me from this state of ignorance” I requested

.

“Shortly after my nikkah, Sis.Zainab was sick and she needed blood, I thought I was AS, I went to donate blood for her, but I learnt that we were not compatible, she was AS while I was AA, I re-conducted the test in another two different hospital and I was confirmed to be AA, I knew that there was a mistake in the test I conducted at nurse Jumoke hospital, I knew I lost Ja’far due to this mistake, I couldn’t concentrate on my marriage afterwards, I thought of Ja’far every day and night and this led to my divorce” Fatimah said and also broke to tears.

.

Fatimah said “Jumoke didn’t make mistake with your result, I bribed her to change it, when you told me that you went to her for test, though you didn’t tell me the test you went for but I knew that it was genotype test because I was there when the doctor told you Ja’far was SS and I noticed that you were anxious. I went to Jumoke and bribed her to change the result, in which she did and I also tried to convince you that you should not marry him because of you are not compatible. I was happy that you couldn’t marry him and pretended to help him by presenting myself for marriage to him. I knew I caused a lot of chaos, but please forgive me, I want to meet my Lord in a good state”

.

Blood of temper hurriedly ran through my vein, my body trembled   and I couldn’t do anything than to cry. Nabeelah hurl a lot of insult on Fatimah, she called her all sort of names, she really felt betrayed and she couldn’t control her tears. Nabeelah left the hospital out of anger.

.

Immediately, Fatimah’s love left my heart and I felt hatred for her again, but there is nothing I could do, she’s the mother of my child, we both weep for a long time. My mum entered and asked about what was happening, but we were unable to give her an answer, I just left the hospital for home.

.

When it was around 1:00 pm, mummy called me and told me that fatimah’s condition had gone critical, she said I should meet her in the hospital immediately.
