Read Story: SEASON 2 EPISODE 45

Ronke and Pastor Adetutu
arrived at the massive
building which obviously
belongs to Chief Rammon.


All through the extensive
drive from Abuja to Lagos,
Ronke hadn’t been able to
stop her racing heart. She
was exceedingly grateful to
have the pastor with her.


She had explained
everything to her pastor
who had encouraged her to
meet the man to confess
and give him the remaining
money. It had been so
simple earlier: arrive at the
house, kneel down and cry
till she is forgiven and walk
out with a light heart and a
peaceful smile. Now, staring
at the gate, she doubted it
would be that simple.


They were let in by the
house help and seated at
the reception while the girl
went in to call the chief,
they were lucky to meet him
at home. Chief Rammon
took one look at Ronke and
yelled. He was in front of
her in a flash, lifting her
with his arms and shaking
her like a ragged doll.

“You
this thief. You have the guts
to show your filthy face
here. We are going to the
police station now” he
yelled.


Pastor Adetutu tried to
break his hold and finally
succeeded after almost two
minutes.
His wife appeared before
they knew what was
happening.

“What is going
on here?” she asked.


Obviously, the chief hadn’t
told his wife the truth about
what happened. The money
Ronke stole had caused
serious financial crisis and
they had to sell three of
their properties and
withdraw almost everything
in the family account to pay
off the debt. He ranted the
lie he had told his wife
months ago; that Ronke
was the one he had given a
lift in his car who stole his
briefcase. Ronke yelled,
stating the fact that
everything he said was a lie.
She narrated everything
that had happened even
though the chief tried to cut
her shut every now and
then. The wrath of his wife
turned to him immediately,
and for a while, she and the
pastor could as well be
invisible because they just
sat there looking. The
pastor settled the raging
war between them in order
to face the reason why they
came.


Ronke knelt down and
pleaded. She presented the
remaining money. After
explaining all the events in
her life right from the time
she was born; how that she
never knew her parents
and that she was picked up
from the dustbin by a good
woman who later died
when she was ten,
everyone became soft-
hearted. She explained that
she had since then learnt to
survive on her own,
depending on men for her
food, hereby becoming a
harlot since she had no
certificate to tender
anywhere apart from her
school cert. The pastor
intervened and explained
how she had become born
again and had since then
stopped spending the
stolen money. God used the
wife who stated that if her
husband gets the girl
arrested, she would also file
for a divorce. Ronke left the
house, not only forgiven
and light-hearted but also
with some money to start a
small business.
