Episode 13
I sent a message to Bode immediately Mrs. Williams left my
room, informing him about the pregnancy.
I expected his reply throughout the night, but he didn’t.
D next day was Sunday. I didn’t feel like going to church. I
was too ashamed to see anybody’s face, though no one knew
about it yet, besides The Williams. I imagined what would
happen when d news went viral among church members that I
was carrying Bode’s baby….having denied that I was in a
relationship with him earlier..Oh my God! How did I find
myself in this mess?.
Then I thought of my dad.
Eeeeh!. My dad!!.
He trusted me so much.
I was his pride, his angel, the apple of his eyes.
How would he take it?.
I have disappointed him.
And my two elder sisters.
None of them had a child before marriage, even Sis Tiwa
was still trusting God for the fruit of the womb then, its only Sis
Temi that had a baby girl, expecting the second one.
Oh!.. I’ve disappointed many people.
And Bode’s mum?.Wouldn’t she think I lured her son to
sleep with me?. Wont she see me as a cheap girl?.
As I thought of these things, tears was flowing freely from
my eyes.
Mrs. Williams came to tell me to get dressed for service.
I told her I wasn’t feeling like going to church.
She said “okay, its fine. Just make sure u seek d face of
God for forgiveness, mercy and the way out.”
I said thank you ma.
They left.
I switched off my phone.
Then I started thinking again and again, weeping and
asking God for forgiveness.
I also prayed for His mercy and way out, as Mrs. Williams
told me.
After the prayer, I put on my phone, and almost
immediately, Bode’s message came in.
I read the message which went like this..”I was devastated by
your message. I think the only solution is abortion. I thought
about it true out the night and that I think is the only way out. I’m
very sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused you.”
I threw the phone on the bed.
I said to myself “how I wish it was that easy.”
As a matter of fact, maybe I would have agreed with him, if
this woman was not involved, but now, I just have to bear the
consequences: the shame, reproach, rejection and anything
that comes from it.
I threw myself on the bed, covered my mouth with a pillow and
screamed into it.
JESUS!.JESUS!!.. Plsease have mercy on me….this is too much for
me.
While doing this, I heard d Pastor’s car moving into the
compound. I quickly got up, wiped my face and pretended to
be fine.
Soon Pastor Mrs. was in the room.
“How was your day my dear”.
“I was praying ma”.
“And weeping at and same time”. She said, smiling.
I didn’t  answer.
I showed her Bode’s message.
She read it and said “I knew it. I knew that would be his
option.”
Then she sat beside me on the bed, hugged me and said “Listen
my darling, there’s nothing new under heaven. Many people
have gone true this route before, and many will still go true it.
I’m sure if not for divine intervention, you could have
considered abortion as Bode suggested. But sometimes we
offend God while trying not to offend man. Don’t use sin to
cover sin. God is the ultimate. Once He has forgiven you, it
doesn’t matter if anybody doesn’t.
Now, I will tell you the story of my own life.”
What did she say?.
