Tiffany arrived on Hawai’i Island, otherwise known as the Big Island; her sense of humour, though dry, made her pick the Island she did over the seven other islands of the Island, bringing a dry smile to her face. Where else is a big fat, shapeless British girl supposed to go for her forced vacation if not to the big island? She had to travel for over 19 hours to get there and was already very cranky. The flight was from London to California, approximately 11 hours, and California to Hawai’i was another five hours 40 mins. The extra two hours were spent in California getting the aircraft checked and stuff that only the pilot understood and had tried explaining to a disinterested Tiffany.
Fire Escape Collapse
Sandra was a waitress in a bar just three streets from her home. She usually resumes work around 5 pm daily. Her job makes it convenient for her to take care of Eddie, her 5 -year-old son, a student at the elementary school relatively close to their house; thankfully, it’s a public school, so she isn’t spending any money on school like she had to do when he was still in day-care as well as Pre-school.
The rubber wedding band
Cleo woke from that scary and reoccurring dream. This time it went a little further than the last two times. She sat up with a start, and as she rubbed her right hand over her face to be sure she was awake, she realized she was sweating. This confused her even more; the weather was 5 degrees, it was already winter, and the heating in her apartment was off. She programmed it to always go off at midnight. She could feel the cold, so why was she sweating? She asked herself as she got out of bed, wore her slippers, and went to her kitchen to get a glass of water. Once again, it was surprising to her that her throat was parched. She gulped down the water she poured to fill her glass in a few gulps. She did a refill and took that back to her bedroom. As she placed it on the bedside table, she checked the time. It was about a quarter past 1 am.
The Loss. Oluremi Adeoye She woke up that Sunday morning very sad and teary. It has happened again. She didn't even know what to say or where to start all she knows is that she is pregnant. She thought of all the tall dreams she had of wanting to be great. She had plans of becoming a medical doctor. She had passed her school certificate exams with flying colors and had gained admission into one of the best universities in the country to study medicine and then got pregnant. She felt so stupid, but who can she blame? She didn't know it would turn out this way. From her calculations, she wasn't sure whether she got pregnant for the first, second, or third time. She sat down and counted the markings on her calendar. They had done it more than eight times in just two months.
