Eli's wife 8

Sena turned to look at Eli. He was deep in thought. She could tell. "I hate hospitals." She said to break the silence. Eli didn't say a thing. Just then a middle aged nurse walked up to them. "Eli." she said and hugged him. Eli lit up and smiled. He asked about how she was doing and she cheerfully answered him. Sena just nodded with a little grin. The woman wasn't very receptive towards her. She spoke a little about how sad Tina's death was and how she was off duty the last time she came to the clinic. "Are you two expecting already?" she said giving Sena a hard look. "Expecting? Oh no, not at all. I just came to see Uncle Richard. We heard he has tons of patients today so we are waiting." Eli quickly replied. The nurse told them. "Don't be silly, Eli. I will go and tell him you are here." she said and walked off. Eli tried to tell her he didn't mind waiting but he would have been lying. When she was gone he turned to Sena and apologized. He said she was very fond of Tina that's why she was a bit rude.

In time at all the nurse came back and signaled for them to go into the doctor's office. Sena held Eli's hand just when he was about to get up. She asked him what he was going to say to his doctor. "I'm going to tell him about Tina's autopsy and ask him what happened when she came to see him." he said. Sena. "Wait for him to mention her visit himself alright?" She added as they walked to the office.

Doctor Richard, a tall half cast man in his late fifties was a little surprised to see them. He congratulated them on their marriage and apologized for not being able to make it to the wedding. Sena watched him very closely while Eli did most of the talking. Richard mentioned how sorry he was about Tina's passing. The couple waited to see if he would tell them about her visit but he rather asked what brought them there. Eli turned to look at Sena. She nodded and he told him the story. "Ah yes she was here…err…" He stuttered. "We know she was pregnant." Sena said and there was a brief silence. Richard nodded. "She asked for an abortion but I said I wouldn't do it and she left." he finally said, his tone a little different. "Why didn't you tell me?" Eli asked. "I'm sorry, Eli. I should have told you." He replied. Just then a siren went off and a bunch of nurses rushed to the gate. "I have to go." Richard said rushing towards the entrance of the clinic. A man with multiple stab wounds was being carried in from an ambulance. Eli and Sena left.

"Hey, are you alright?" Charles said, sitting next to Sena. She was visiting him. She felt the need to be close to someone after all that happened in the hospital. "I'm alright it's just my...a client of mine." she lied. Charles handed her a cup of ice cream and asked her to share her burden with him. She explained Tina's case to him. Using fake names. He listened to her attentively. "So who do you think killed her because her car wasn't tempered with right? And where is her body now?" he asked. Sena thought for a minute. "Honestly, I think it's his father. He could have manipulated the doctor to inject her with something. She's been buried now. It's just sad that I don't know how to tell my client." She answered and Charles smiled. He hugged her and told her not to worry.

Doctor Richard closed the door to his office and picked up his phone and called the President. "Sorry to bother you but there's something you should know. Eli and his wife were here to find out about Ernestina's death." he said. President Tamakloe was worried. He asked Richard what he told them and he answered with exactly what he told them. The President told him to keep it as it is and hung up.
