Daddy did not give me money that day.He was so crossed with me, it was mum that gave me transport fare and a stipend which i managed till January allowance was paid.
Thank God for the foodstuff i took with me from home, i would have learnt a wonderful lesson from “Mr Hunger”(lols) ￼ .
On getting back to Oyan, Bode was still around because there was no money for him to return to school.I told him what i went
through because of him,and even then, i wasn’t sure if my dad would send me money again as usual, so i couldn’t give him
He felt sorry for me,and told me he would source for money elsewhere. I don’t know how he did it,but he went back to
school the following week.
Soon rumor was beginning to spread amidst the choir members that something was going on between i and Bode. Before i knew it, it became the subject matter of every gossip among church members.
One Sunday morning, Pastor Mrs Williams sent somebody to tell me she would like to see me after service. I wasn’t myself throughout the service. I kept thinking “what did i do? Why does she want to see me?….Anyway, i said to myself, if it’s
because of Bode, there’s nothing between us, and that is just what i will tell her….Period!.”
I didn’t hear anything in church that day ,i was already devastated by the rumor going on, and this?….
Finally,the service was over. I found myself sitting next to Pastor Mrs Williams on a three seater sofa inside d pastor’s office.
Good afternoon ma.
How are you my dear?.
I’m fine ma!
“I know you might be wondering why i wanted to see you..said
“Yes ma”. I answered.
She continued….It’s about a rumor going on in the church.
Can you please shed more light on the relationship between you and Bode?. “Ma, Bode is like a younger brother to me, nothing more. Believe me ma. I only render assistance to him whenever he’s in need, and that has even stopped now.” I told her.
Anyways, i’ve denied it on your behalf, i only wanted to confirm
from you, because the very first day i set my eyes on you, i knew you came from a christian home, and i have no doubt in my spirit that you are well trained..but then, i want you to be very careful because there is power in tongues. Don’t give the devil any chance at all, and
don’t trust yourself..if you see or hear a child of God saying “i trust
myself, i can never commit fornication”..then, you have heard
or seen someone at the verge of falling. Remember 1 Cor 10
So, please be very careful and the Lord shall help you IJN.
I said “Thank you ma”,and left d office.
As i was going home, i was telling myself “Now, i really need to be very careful….though there was nothing between us really, but how could anybody
think i could be dating a boy about the same age with Oyindamola..our second to the last born? not even the one next to me!..Well,i just need to be careful, help me Oh Lord!”.
