I didn’t attend choir practice on Saturday nor church
service on Sunday because I didn’t want to see Mrs. Williams. I’ve
made up my mind not to tell her anything and I knew she
would ask me if she set her eyes on me.
I didn’t know I was only adding more petrol to a burning
fire.
Some choir members came again after service to check on
me, thinking I haven’t recovered fully or not strong enough to
attend service. Of course when I saw them, I pretended to be
weak still.
Bode came later in the evening when everybody had left.
He said “I knew you didn’t come to church today because of me, not
because of your health. You refuse to forgive me despite my please. I
told you its the work of the devil, please let’s be doing as we used to
do before… please now”..He began to weep.
I was moved with passion when I saw him weeping. I went to
him, gave him a gentle pat on the back, and said “that’s
okay. Stop crying. It wasn’t only your fault, but mine too. We
both need to ask God for forgiveness and make sure it
doesn’t happen….”
Before I could finish my sentence, he got up, held me and
began to kiss me. Every attempt to rescue myself out of his
hand failed. At a time, I surrendered, and again….It
happened!.
Before I could put myself together, Bode dressed up and
ran out of my room.
I started weeping.
“Lord, I’ve done it again. I disobeyed you. I didn’t yield to the
voice of the Holy spirit. What will I do now?”.
For days, I was praying and weeping, asking God for
forgiveness and what to do, I didn’t hear anything as I
heard it earlier. It was so obvious that something was wrong
with me, as I was a shadow of myself. Even my dressing
changed, a 60year old woman would dress better.
Everybody was asking, “what’s wrong with you?.Hope there’s
no problem. Are you still sick?”.
My usual answer was “No problem, all is well”..but within
me, I knew nothing was well.
I wasn’t attending mid-week services also. I would prefer to
be in my room, and be thinking. The thought that bothered me
most was “Will God ever forgive me?.
If the first one was a mistake, what about this one?”.
Mrs. Williams called me one Wednesday evening after having
prayer meeting in church.”Sis Sewa, I noticed you were not in
church today for the prayer meeting, how are you?. Are you not
okay yet?”.
“I’m fine ma”.
“Then, why have you been keeping yourself away from church?”.
“Nothing ma.”
“you’ve started again. Oh! that reminds me, you promised to tell
me something the other day, will you come and see me tomorrow
after school?. I will be waiting for you at the church office.”
“What time ma?”
“Let’s make it 4pm”.
“Ok ma”.
She hung up.
My heart began to beat very fast. I could hear the sound.
What will I say?. Maybe I should just cook up a
story..but, what if she knew it’s all lies. Oh my God!..what
mess have I gotten myself into?. How will I get out of this
now?.
As I was pondering over this, my phone rang.
It was my dad. I picked it.
What did he say?.
We shall see in the next Episode.
