After writing his exams,Bode came home.
One sunday after service,i saw Pastor Williams holding his
hand n they both entered d pastor’s office.
When they wouldnt come out after about one hour thirty
minutes,Pst Mrs said i should let us go home,dt she would
come back to d church later to pick Pastor.
So we left to go n prepare lunch as d children were hungry.
About one hour after we got home,Pastor Williams trekked
home with Bode.
I didnt need anybody to tell me he had been seriously
scolded.He was looking like a kid whose mother didnt
remember to drop d key of d cupboard where his lunch was
kept before she left d house.
Mummy n i were in d kitchen when they came in.
Bode came to meet us there,greeted mummy,n then turned
“Pls,we need to talk privately, Pastor said i should come n
meet u,so we can talk n sort things out.”
I wondered why,but then i turned to mummy “Am i allowed
“Of course,my dear.Go to ur room”.She answered.
We both went inside d room n left d door widely opened.
Goodness and Mercy (Pastor’s five year old twins) ran
after us to d room.
I heard their mum shouting from d kitchen “Come here
o,Mercy!, Goodness!!..Aunty Sewa will soon come n join
u,dont disturb them”.
As soon as d children left, Bode said “Pls,i’m sorry for
everything i’ve put u tru. Pastor have made me realise my mistake, he really spoke to me, he even asked if am born again, I told him I am. I only yielded to the call of flesh. He made me to pray a prayer of forgiveness,n i believe u’ve
done d same,i also believe God has forgiven us.I promise u
n God,just as i’ve promised my Pastor,dt such will never
happen again,not with u nor any other woman,except d one
i eventually get married to.Pls,find a place in ur heart to
forgive me.” He started shedding tears.
I asked him if he wouldnt mind going to Lagos to meet my
He said he didnt want to go initially,but Pastor Williams
told him to go,so he has decided to go.He said he would go
during d week.I gave him my dad’s number n he called him
Daddy told him to come on thursday or friday,as he wont be
in Lagos from monday to wednesday.
When he left,i told mummy everything we discussed.
She said “Thank God he’s able to realise his mistakes. Dont
worry,God will surely perfect everything. Let’s just keep
praying. He never fails.”
Again,we prayed about Bode’s meeting with my dad,dt
God’s perfect will should be done.
She asked if i had an idea of what my dad wanted to
discuss with Bode.
I said i had no idea,dt my mum only told me dt she had
been talking to daddy everyday about my case,n dt she
really begged him before he could agree to come to Oyan to
meet Bode’s mum. And as God would have it,they needed to
attend dt programme at Ikirun which was just a few
kilometers to Oyan.
“Well,all shall be well”. She answered.
Bode called me very early in d morning,to inform me dt he
was in d park,waiting for d bus to be full,n then,he would be on his way to lagos.
