“Yeeey!, Mogbe!! Sade!!” The church mummy screamed on hearing Sade share her secret escapes with Kolade. She turned to look at the church pastor whose head was already lowered in disappointment.
“Ah! Sade!” The church mummy screamed again,
“How could you do such a thing?” She asked, lacking words and Sade wept bitterly.
“That day I collapsed in his house, we were actually arguing over it. We were mapping out plans for our traditional marriage, and he started making advances at me again, so I pushed him away and he got angry. But I insisted I won’t continue in the dirty act again. We were still arguing over it when I fainted” Sade continued with her story.
“Mummy…daddy am sorry for disappointing you” she said and buried her face in her hands crying while Kehinde sat quietly, watching them.
The Pastor brought out his phone and dialed a number,
“Hello brother Kolade” he said and responded to Kola’s greetings at the other end.
“I want to see you in the house right away, in the next 15 minutes please” he said trying hard to maintain his comportment. He dropped his phone and stole a look at Sade, tapping his feet on the floor before speaking to Kehinde.
“So what has their romance story to do with the pregnancy?” He asked Kehinde because the part of Kola releasing semen on Sade was yet to be discussed.
“Well sir, I studied Gynecology in the university and am presently practicing my profession as a Gynecologist.” He said and looked at the Pastor who was nodding his head with interest,then continued.
“From my discussion with sister Sade, she last saw her period on the 11th of last month and their last romance happened on the 23rd of that same month, ” he started to explain and the Pastor looked intently at him trying to understand where he was driving at.
” On that 23rd in which they had their last romance, Sade was supposed to be in her ovulation. And according to her, Kola was lying on her and struggling to pull off her gown, and she noticed that her pants and clothe were wet with Kolade’s Semens.” He continued with his explanation and watched the Pastor frowned in confusion.
“Okay?” the Pastor said indicating that he should explain how that can make Sade pregnant.
“Sir, a sperm cell can swim through any see through cloth or pant and if it finds it’s way into the woman’s reproductive organ, pregnancy can easily be achieved if she is ovulating” he explained and the church mummy gave another loud scream.
“Ah! Sade! Why did you go this far?” She asked rhetorically almost crying.
“Sade, you didn’t want to eat the meat, but you shared the meat with your teeth and you ended up tasting the juice from the meat. Sade, you ate the meat” the church mummy said as tears trickle down her cheeks.
“The meat!” Sade shouted as she remembered her dream.
“Yes, I actually shared the meat with my teeth trying to settle the misunderstanding and I was later accused of eating the meat.. I was disgraced..” She stood up staring into space and Kehinde rushed to her.
“I guess she is already stressed up and needs to rest” Kehinde suggested looking at the Pastor and his wife, and the door opened to usher in Kolade who was surprised to find Kehinde holding Sade in the presence of the Pastor and his wife.
“Ek`ale daddy ..mummy” he swallowed hard and greeted but they didn’t respond, rather the Pastor directed him to sit down.
“I actually tasted the meat in that dream, I swallowed the water that dripped out of the meat, though I didn’t chew the meat.. I didn’t know it was going to bring me disgrace, I didn’t know” She continued and they feared she was going mad.
The church mummy took hold of her and sat her down as she kept muttering words while the Pastor interrogated Kolade.
“When was the last time Sade visited your house apart from yesterday?” The Pastor asked looking into his eyes with meanness and Kola’s heart began to beat fast.
“Uhm… That was.., I think it was last month” he said and the Pastor threw another question at him immediately.
“What’s the date of that day?” He asked still looking at him and observing his uneasiness as he looked around from Kehinde to the church angry looking church mummy who was holding the insane liked Sade.
“It’s either 22nd or 23rd thereabout” he said calculatingly. “Yeah, it’s on 23rd” he said.
” what happened in your room that fateful day?” The Pastor queried, not giving him breathing space.
“Nothing sir” he answered quickly and stole a look at Sade who was still looking into the space.
“Are you saying that no kissing and romancing took place between you and Sade?” The Pastor asked losing his temper and Kolade became quiet and lowered his head.
“Mr man answer me right now, I don’t have a spare time to waste in silence!” The Pastor blew hurt at him.
“Well… That was before, we’ve stopped the act a long time ago..” Kolade murmured grudgingly in response and avoided the Pastor’s eyes.
“Did you do it that day? I want a straight answer of either ‘yes’ or ‘No’.” the Pastor said looking more mean and silence permeated the parlor.
“If I lose my temper, you will sleep in the cell this night” the Pastor threatened and fear gripped Kola’s heart.
“Ye..ye…yes sir” Kola stammered in shame and the church mummy gave another loud disappointing scream while the shocked Pastor looked intently at Kola whose head was still lowered and didn’t know whether to pounce on Kolade and give him the beating if his life or order him out of his house.
“Well, you got Sade pregnant with your stupid secret sin” the Pastor said and Kola raised his head in shock.
” That’s not possible, I didn’t sleep with Sade.” He objected and stood up to face Kehinde.
” They both cooked up a story to dump the pregnancy on me and I won’t accept it!” He shouted at the top of his voice.
“When you finish barking, you will understand better” the Pastor told Kolade.
“The relationship was difficult but I wanted it to work out by all means. I went to the extent of giving him my body to make it work. I was supposed to give up the difficult meat but I was too soft hearted trying to share my body between him and the Holy Spirit. Now I understand better… ” Sade kept muttering and they couldn’t understand what she was saying.
“I will get a drip from the nearest pharmacy right away and inject her to sleep, she is losing her mind” Kehinde said, picked up his car keys and dashed out of the parlor. The Pastor instructed the church mummy to take Sade to the guest room where the drip would be fixed on her….
