A Second Chance

There was a time when i had a friend by the name mary.Her mother was very strict to her that she was not given time to go play with her friends or even even visit them,instead she would tell her to stay in the house reading. One day she timed when her mother was away and she went to her boyfriend and her boyfriend tricked her she slept with him and she lost her virginity. Then after some months she started vomiting and was very weak when she was tested she was found that she was 2 months pregnant.Her mother could not blame her daughter but had herself to blame cause she was not giving her daughter freedom to interact with children outside.
