bed instinctively he smelled the pillow where his wife slept. He thought about Laura and how she was feeling. His eyes closed and he fell asleep.


When Albert awoke he looked at the clock which told him it was quarter past five in the morning. He rolled sideways out of bed then threw on his dressing gown and went to relieve himself in the bathroom. He held onto his manhood as he urinated and then thought how useless his penis was. He whispered that pissing was the only good thing his cock was good for now. He flushed the toilet then tied the belt on his dressing gown before going into the kitchen and lighting a match under the gas ring filling the kettle and putting it on the gas ring. He took a tea bag and inserted it into a mug then sat and waited for the water to boil. He felt terrible his head ached from the whiskey that he’d drank.

It just after six that morning when he rang the hospital to ask how his wife was they told him the same message that they told all the husbands, “you’re wife has had a comfortable night.’

Albert went outside into his shed then found his secateurs he cut a large bunch of flowers and wrapped them in some newspaper before placing them on the passenger seat of his car he drove to work at seven thirty and told his boss what had happened who told him to take off as much time as he needed. He then drove to the hospital and went to the ward where his wife was. She was awake and needed to use the bathroom. Her stomach ached with throbbing pain. Albert told the nurse who then went a brought a bed pan and asked him to wait outside.

“I’m sorry Mrs Kinnear said Nurse Nelly Hepple but you are not allowed out of bed. You will have to get used to using these because you are going to be here for at least a week. No sudden movements now or you will burst open like a bean bag.’

“Have they stitched me down there?’

“Yes,’ and you are going to feel very sore for quite some time It took me six weeks before I got any feeling down there.’

“You mean you’ve had a… you know a “hysermacallit”

“Hysterectomy is what it is, and yes I had it done five years ago.’

Have you got any children?’

Yes, I’ve got nine kids.’ I had it done to stop me from having any more.’ Every time my husband dropped his pants I was pregnant again. I told him after Louise was born that she would be the last and asked the doctors to do something.  They gave me a complete hysterectomy.’ What about you?’

“I lost my son and I cannot have any more children ever.’

“Oh you poor lass, you must be heart broken. Here’s me going on about myself as well. I’m sorry.’

“It’s alright, I believe I just wasn’t meant to have kids that’s all.’

“It doesn’t mean you cannot adopt a child Laura, it just means that you cannot have one yourself.’

“There are agencies all over the country looking for people like you who want to adopt children and give them the love and support their real mother’s couldn’t give them.’
