THE STORY OF ADESEWA (EPISODE 6)

Friday, 6 April 2018






I was a bit relieved,at least,after hearing what Mrs
Williams said.
“Now,tell me….how did it happen?.” She asked.
I told her everything i could remember without hiding
anything intentionally.
Whenever i said something she didnt understand,she would
throw a question to me,and i would answer.
After our discussion,she said “Do u know what?”
I said “No ma”.
She said “I will take u to ur house now,to go and pick some
of ur dresses and things u’ll need for a few days after
which u will come with me to our place.
I agreed.In less than one hour,i found myself sitting in d
small,beautiful living room of D Williams.
I was taken to d visitor’s room,where i put my bag.
What am i going to do next now?….I had no idea.
Thank God for d way everything happened,maybe i would
have taught of abortion,but now,dt’s out of d way,except i
wanted to offend God more.
We didnt meet Pastor Williams at home when we got
home,he was away to attend a meeting,i learnt.
He came back around 8pm.
He was surprised to see me in their house.
I only greeted him,he answered me,and went straight into
their room.
His wife followed him immediately,i guess she was going to
tell him why he saw me in their house.
About one hour later,they both came out of d room.
Pastor Williams was unusually silent,but i could read from
his face he didnt like what he heard..of course,i didnt
expect him to like it.
Then,Pastor Mrs came to my room after dinner and asked
“Sis Sewa,what do u want to do now?”.
“I dont even know ma.”
“Have u informed Bode?”
“No ma.I didnt even know i was pregnant.”
“I learnt he has gone back to school….Send a message to
him to inform him,let’s hear what he will say.Dont let him
know i’ve known about it o”.
“Okay ma.I’ll do that.”

I sent a message to Bode immediately Mrs Williams left my
room,informing him about d pregnancy.
I expected his reply throughout d 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 dt i
was carrying Bode’s baby.
…having denied dt i was in a
relationship with him earlier..Oh my God! How did i find
myself in ds mess?.
Then i thought of my dad.
Eeeeh!.My dad!!.
He trusted me so much.
I was his pride,his angel,d 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 d fruit of d womb then,its only Sis
Temi dt had a baby girl,expecting d 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 n d way out.”
I said thank u 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 d prayer,i put on my phone,and almost
immediately,Bode’s message came in.
I read d message which went like ds..”I was devastated by
ur message. I think d only solution is abortion.
I thought
about it tru out d night n dt i think is d only way out. I’m
very sorry for any inconvenience ds might have caused u.”
I threw d phone on d bed.
I said to myself “how i wish it was dt easy.”
As a matter of fact,maybe i would have agreed with him, if
ds woman was not involved,but now,i just have to bear d
consequences, d shame,reproach,rejection and anything
dt comes from it.
I threw myself on d bed,covered my mouth with a pillow n
screamed into it.
JESUS!.JESUS!!..Pls have mercy on me….this is too much for
me.

While doing this,i heard d Pastor’s car moving into d
compound. I quickly got up,wiped my face n pretended to
be fine.
Soon Pastor Mrs was in d room.
“How was ur day my dear”.
“I was praying ma”.
“And weeping at d same time”. She said, smiling.
I didnt answer.
I showed her Bode’s message.
She read it n said “i knew it. I knew dt would be his
option.”
Then she sat beside me on d bed,hugged me n said “Listen
my darling,there’s nothing new under heaven. Many people
have gone tru ds route before,and many will still go tru it.
I’m sure if not for divine intervention,u could have
considered abortion as Bode suggested. But sometimes we
offend God while trying not to offend man. Dont use sin to
cover sin. God is d Ultimate. Once He has forgiven u,it
doesnt matter if anybody doesnt.
Now,i will tell u d story of my own life.”
