Chapter 22 THE DEAL
- I am appalled at the things Jerol has been keeping to himself. We have been sitting on the floor of this gym for almost an hour now and all I can is, his story is quite a deep and confusing one. Then things he has told me are saddening.
- Apparently, he has been yearning to marry for the longest time but women leave him because of a condition. Ever heard of low sperm count? I hope I said it right because I know nothing about it. You know, the real miss dumbass. I have never even gotten this close to a man before so how am I supposed to know about sperm and all the sex stuff? Don't tell me about biology because I think I burned my school memory together with my notes the day I said goodbye to high school. That aside.
- So when Ellie accepted him despite his condition, for him to be sure that his marriage with her will not have problems, they opted for an IVF, of course after failing to conceive naturally. It was a success, and he felt the world in his arms when they received the news. Unfortunately, Ellie suffered an accident a month later that led to the miscarriage which she blamed Jerol for until her disappearance. Cruel, right.
