her mother threw at her,..


” Haba mummy, how can you call my friend useless,…. “..”I pity you,…. Just pray that young man doesnt change his mind about you,…. You should be thankful that he proposed to you,….This one is a beggar with choice,… This is not the time to think of taking advantage,… This is the time you need to think of your child,…. Even if he doesn’t know his father now,… . A time will come when he’ll ask for his father,… This man is ready to give your baby a name,….. He’ll put our enemies to shame,….. ”
