Unwanted Pregnancy Of Which The Girl Succeeded With The Child

My cousin sat in an easy chair under a cool shady tree on a Saturday morning.This is where she usually sat to do her revision.she knew she looked deceptively calm in the eyes of anyone who did not know the catastrophe that had struck her.many confused thoughts raced through her mind.she had not been able to settle on any concrete solution comfortably in the past 3 months.Time was running out.in another two months time.the scheme would not be workable.The friend she had consulted had advised her to ensure she executed the plan during the first 3 months.After that she said,it would be too dangerous for things had to be done and done soon.The more she thought about it.the angrier she got with her boyfriend who gave her the unwanted pregnancy.when she thought about to abort the child I begged her not to abort.but she asked me or it was dangerous and I told her and she heard me.
