‘It’s way too dangerous.’ The doctor says making me swallow hard.
‘If you go ahead, you will never be able to conceive so I would suggest you think hard about this because there will be no going back. I will give the both of you a few minutes to decide.’
‘Sure.’ He responds looking at the doctor.
Once he is out of the room, I finally let the tears fall.
‘I am sorry.’ He says looking at me.
‘I should be the one sorry, I knew what I was getting into.’
‘Zara don’t you dare ever say something like that again. It takes two to tangle, we knew what we were getting ourselves into.’
I sigh deeply and look at what’s at stake. I have made some really foolish decisions but I didn’t think I would ever be lying on this cold bed trying to decide how my future will play out.
‘We can keep it.’
‘And then what?’
‘We will figure it out Zara, there is nothing that can’t be solved.’
‘You play too much.’ I tell him.
‘We told ourselves that we were never going to complicate things but shit happens Zara we are adults we need to take responsibility.’
‘We were never going to complicate things until we decided to have sex without a condom expecting a fridge to come out.’
‘You are going to make an amazing mother.’
‘We are not doing this.’ I say strongly.
