” Dad please am begging you… don’t do this to me… I can’t marry that dirty girl… I love cynthia not
her… Please daddy ”
Michael pleaded in tears before his father. The only person he feared most in this planet earth.
” am sorry young man but you’re getting married to Adaolisa this weekend ”
His father said as he busied himself with his news paper.
He had gone for conference meeting in abroad for barely one month only to come back to receive
the shockest news of his life
His stupid son had raped and impregnated poor innocent girl.
To Governor Okenwa, the best way to cure the madness of his son is to marry the girl for him.
I don’t love her, Am too young to marry ”
He sobbed quietly
” my friend shut up there!!!….
You’re too young to marry but not too young to do adult stuff…
Lazy boy ”
He glared at him
” Please dad…. ”
” Enough of your nonsense!. You must marry her and that’s final. ”
He said in a tone of finalty.
” what about my education? ”
He sobbed ignoring his last statement.
” no hindrance to it… ”
His father said and took his news paper upstairs to avoid disturbance for his lousy sons and wife.
Saturday came, Adaolisa dressed in a beautiful wedding dress looking so angelic Adorable.
Tears filled her eyes as she stared at herself in the huge wall mirror. She wished that her mother is
there to see her beautiful daughter. Unfortunately mama had developed High blood pressure
when she heard about the news of the rape and died days later. Ada couldn’t understand the
reason why life decides to be so unfair to her. The worst happened few weeks later after the death
of her mother. She discovered that she was pregnant for that monster. Her world crumbled to
dust. Her dreams of becoming a powerful surgeon broke to pieces .
When she couldn’t bear it any longer, she decided to abort the pregnancy but because she’s
asthmatic. BROKEN SOUL
Continuation of chapter 4
She decided to abort the pregnancy but because she’s asthmatic, Her doctor warned her of the
consequences. She had no other option than to inform micheal’s parents about it. Even Uchenna
was aware of it, he condemned Michael for his actions but the little devil showed no remorse
about his deeds.
Sorrowfully, she said her wedding vows and wedded the monster behind her tears. The innocent
looking guy she once admired is now her day nightmare . He took her virginity forcefully and
ended the life of her precious mother prematurely.
Dear reader, tells me the reason why she should ever be happy in her life
Definitely nothing again will make Adaolisa to be happy. To Ada, life is nothing but ocean of
sorrows and bitterness. Today, she’s going to start a life a monster and her everyday nightmare .
She wished that she was never born.
However, Michael was very sad through out the wedding ceremony. He admits that he made a
mistake but he’s not ready to marry yet. All he ever wanted is to spend his life with the woman that
he loves and cherish not some random urchins from the gutter. He has therefore promised himself
to her life a living Hell
He will make her to regret her very existence in this planet earth

“why didn’t you wash the white shirt I told you to wash? ”
Michael asked angrily.
He had planned to wear it for his lectures but the lazy dog he called his wife can’t even wash his
clothes without using washing machine. He don’t blame her, his father had rented a well furnished
house off camp for them and it irritates him whenever he sees Ada in a relaxed or Happy mood.
All he wants is to see her sad and angry everyday of her life.
To Michael, she ruined his love life with cynthia. Cynthia had cried bitterly when she learnt about
his marriage with Ada. He just wish that this never happened. It just ruined his life.
“Michael am really sorry about that, I had a rough day at school yesterday and so …. ”
” so what?.. Is it my fault that your day was rough? ”
He yelled at her and she flinched in fear.
” But you have many shirts, must you wear this one? ”
She asked calmly trying her possible best not to cry. This pregnancy hormone is making her
emotional these days.
” shut up there!!!… Now wash the clothe before I return from school. Useless being! ”
He said without remorse and that broke Ada’s heart. She couldn’t take it anymore and she broke
down in tears
” that’s your business… If you like cry from now till tomorrow, If you don’t wash this clothe prepare
for your burial before I return…. Gold digger ”
He spat out without mercy. Adaolisa cried bitterly Wishing for her life to end. To Ada, life is
nothing but pains and sorrows.
She laboured tirelessly washing clothes, cooking and tyding up the house. The house chores was
too much on her and she collapsed on one of the couch and slept off. Thank goodness that today
is Friday, no lectures if not it would be too disastrous for her and her baby. She just slept off
forgetting that she was cooking something in the kitchen. She couldn’t tell how long she has slept
cos a very hot slap on her cheeks woke her up.
There was smoke everywhere, Michael had only to see smokes everywhere in him house, he
angrily slapped the Hell out of Ada and woke her up. She’s too lazy and that’s pissing him off the
more, he just hates her with passion. Ada had rushed to the kitchen ignoring hateful remarks and
comments from Michael, to her greatest surprise, the rice she wasremarks g had all burnt. Thank
goodness it didn’t burn anything in the house. She touched her cheeks, feeling the heat of the
slap and sighed bitterly
Continuation of chapter 5
She touched her cheeks, feeling the heat of the slap and sighed bitterly. She had resigned her
self to her fate.
“what are you still doing there… Get me something to eat, Am hungry”
He growled at Her
She said quietly
” am I not talking to a human being? ”
” I said Alright, I will get you something to eat ”
She half-yelled at him and Michael was surprised. Since they got married, she had never raised
her voice at him. She would either cry or kept quiet.
” what’s wrong with her? ”
He just stood there, watching her as she prepared porriedge yam – his favorite
Something in him condemned his attitude towards her earlier. He felt like apologizing but the pride
in him would not let him do that
As he stood there watching her, he observed for the first time that they got married that Adaolisa
is incredibly beautiful more than cynthia.
He tried to shook the thoughts off his head but they in kept coming. Hurriedly, he left the kitchen
to his room to avoid doing something stupid. He hates the feelings he gets whenever he looks at
her or when she’s close to him.
He will never love a fool like Adaolisa
[12/20, 6:11 PM] DOPERCH.COM: BROKEN SOUL
When he left the kitchen, Adaolisa heaved a sigh of relief. She finds it difficult to concentrate on
what she was cooking. Thank goodness that the tyrant has left. She touched her stomach, she
could feel her baby even though her pregnancy is barely 2months old.
“baby… I can’t waiting to see you, mummy will endure everything for your sake. Hurry up and
come out quickly, mummy loves you ”
She said as tears rolled down her pretty cheeks
She sighed bitterly and suddenly she started coughing. The smoke she inhaled earlier has
resurrected her asthmatic attack. She hurriedly took water from the freezer and gulp down yet it
became worse . The cough increased making her to be very weak and dizzy. Too bad she left her
inhaler in her room. She sat down near the kitchen counter, not Knowing what to do, she will soon
die if she didn’t inhale her inhaler any time from now. Painful tears rolled down her cheeks as she
shut her eyes weakly waiting for her death.
Michael waited for his lunch to no avail. So he angrily went to the kitchen to find out whats
keeping that lazy bone from serving his lunch. What he saw broke his heart, no matter how much
he hates Ada, he can never bear to lose her or his unborn child. Ada was breathing heavily….
“Where’s your inhaler? ”
He asked shaking her vehemently for her to open her eyes but to no avail.
He left her there and ran to the guest room where he had forced her to stay. He searched
everywhere for the inhaler but couldn’t find it. He’s now becoming afraid.
What if something happens to Ada?.. How is he going to explain to his father and relatives?… Who
would believe that he’s innocent?… These and many more thoughts shook his mind greatly. He
rushed back to the kitchen by now she’s already losing her breathe. He drove like a mad man to
the hospital and luckily for him, the doctor was around. They took Adaolisa from him and rushed
her to the theater.
“doctor how is she and my baby? ”
Michael asked immediately he saw the doctor. He had waited patiently for 2hours and that has
been a moment of torture for him.
” they are fine young man. Please don’t allow her to stress herself again. It’s very dangerous for
her health and that of the baby. Take very good care of her ”
The doctor said
” can I see her now? ”
He asked impatiently
” yes, shes awake now. Please make sure that… ”
He was still talking when Michael left him
Continuation of chapter 6
He was still talking when Michael left him in a hurry to see Ada. Quietly he took a seat before him
and sat down.
“Ada how are you feeling now? ”
He asked calmly. That’s the first time he has ever addressed her by her name and Ada was glad.
” am okay now ”
She said trying her best to prevent the tears that’s threatening her way out of her eyes.
” are you sure? … Do you want anything? … Are you hungry?.. Should I get something for you?…
He asked in a worried tone.
” relaxe Michael… Am perfectly fine.. It’s just a minor attack. The doctor said that I will be
discharged tomorrow morning. Don’t worry yourself. ”
” okay.. Then I will stay here with you ”
” no.. Just go home and rest.. I can take care of myself. Am a big girl now ”
She smiled weakly
” Alright.. I was thinking if I could touch the child before I leave…. I mean can I touch the baby
before I go? ”
He asked with a charming smile for the first time and Ada’s heart nearly beat off her chest. She
didn’t believe her ears till he came closer and kissed her stomach .
” be a good boy.. Daddy loves you, don’t stress mummy ”
With that, he left the puzzled Ada. She’s really surprised at what he just did and yet it gladdens
her heart that He’s beginning to acknowledge her as the mother of his child
