Daddy said he would be celebrating his 60th birthday on
30th of May, and would want me to come and grace the
occasion with him and other members of the family.
I promised to come, but after the conversation, I started
praying that I would have gotten over the mood I was before
going to Lagos, because I didn’t want anybody in my family to
have an idea of what I was going through.
The next day I had an appointment with my pastor’s wife. I
decided not to go as I didn’t know how to tell her what was
wrong with me.
Fortunately for me, she called around 2.30pm to inform me
that we would have to postpone the meeting as she needed to
attend to a matter urgently. I was very happy to hear that.
To avoid people coming to my house again, I decided to
attend Sunday service the following week, only to discover that
Bode was absent. I didn’t even ask of him as I preferred not
to see him, but I overheard someone telling the pastor he had
gone back to school.
Immediately after the service, Mrs. Williams sent an usher to
tell me she was waiting for me at the church office.
When I got there, she asked me what was bothering me.
I was too scared to tell her the truth, so I said “It’s family
matter ma, my dad and mum are not in good terms, and it’s
seriously affecting me….”
She said “Are you sure?”
“I said “Yes ma”.
“Anyway, if that is the case, don’t let that affect you. There’s no
marriage without its own crises. God will be glorified in that
union, it doesn’t have to bother you, after all, you know how to
pray, just pray for them, and everything will be well.”
Then she paused ,and looked at me “Sis Sewa, are you sure this
is what is bothering you?. I’m having a feeling you are not
telling me the truth.”
“that is it ma.”
“Okay. Let’s pray.”
She prayed with me, and I left.
As I was going home, the Holy spirit came with his rod
again.”Hunnnn!.You have just told another lie!!. That’s
another blunder..Go back and confess your sins.”
I refused to go back.
How would I face her to tell her I told a lie, after asking me
twice if I was sure I was telling the truth, and I said yes.?.
About a week before my dad’s birthday, I fell sick .I was
throwing up, nothing stayed in my tummy, in fact I couldn’t
eat.
But I just treated malaria, why this again?.I said to myself.
I became very weak.
I decided not to call anybody’s attention..I was fighting it
alone.
Then, very early one Saturday morning, Pastor Mrs. came to
my house. I was so surprised to see her.
“What’s wrong with you Sis Sewa?”.
“Just a bit weak ma”.
“Just a bit weak?, when did it start”.
“About a week ago ma”
She looked at me closely, and said “No, it cant be. Let me see
your eye and your palm”
She checked both.
“You are pregnant!”.
“No ma, I’m not, its malaria”.
She sat on my bed, and was looking at me.
“I said you are pregnant!.I knew it last Sunday when I saw
you, but I didn’t want to be too fast. Okay, if you are not
sure, let’s go to the clinic.”
“No ma, I’m not pregnant, I’m sure I’m not”.
“Now, tell me, what did you do?. Did you sleep with any man?”
I didn’t answer.
“Oh my God!.you? Of all people!. I’ve been using you to counsel
sisters in church, I saw you as a role model to them….”
She burst into tears.
I started weeping too.
To be continued in part 11.
