Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 7
I checked my account balance and saw #97,000 all thanks to the fifteen thousand monthly allowance Kate and I do receive. My plan was to register for catering during our summer holiday.
I board a bus to Imo state and after traveling for almost two days, we got there. It was a beautiful city with attractive features. Luckily for me, we got there during the day so instead of lodging in a hotel, I went around to look for accommodation.
After searching for two hours, I settled for the cheapest which was sixty thousand for one room per year. With the remaining money with me, I asked for directions to the kitchen where I bought foodstuffs, kitchen utensils, and mattress. I ensured I spend the money judiciously and kept some for my urgent need.
I was always indoor because I don’t want to mingle with anyone. I saw humans as heartless and wicked so I wasn’t ready to entangle myself with them.
I suffered morning sickness all by myself in my room. I had always dreamed of getting married at age twenty-four and become a mother at twenty-five while I would be well taken care of during my pregnancy but here am I tied down with a pregnancy whose father I don’t know.
After a month, I decided to go look for a job. Since I have a passion for teaching,I went in search of schools. I decided to take the offer Kiddies Palace which was the school that offered me the highest pay. They promised to pay me fifty thousand naira and I was meant to take the baby class.
On the day I was to resume, on getting to the gate, I started feeling uneasy.
Voice: you can’t work here, go to Marris school
Me: Marris school offer me just thirty thousand, how will I cope?
Voice: go to Marris school, I will take good care of you.
Grudgingly, I took a bike to Marris school. The principal was so surprised to see me because I didn’t plan on coming there to teach. I was taken to Primary two which I was to take.
Before I know what was happening, the children improved greatly, they started reading well and getting their sums well. Parents started sending gifts to me in the form of cash and kind. Other staff wanted to be close to me but I remained on my own because I don’t want any question about my pregnancy.
Six months after I got to Imo state, the same voice woke me up saying I need to go to church that Sunday morning. In anger, I dress up and left the house. The same voice was the one giving direction until I got to a particular church.
I entered and joined them for service. To be honest, my spirit was revived that day. I became a regular member and before I know what was happening, my singing talent brought me to the limelight.
At first, I didn’t want to join their singing group but after much compelling, I joined them. Whenever I climb the pulpit to lead the praise and worship, I do see myself in another realm while the congregation would be in tears.
The pastor of the church, Pastor Ajayi and his wife tried to know more about me but I told them I wasn’t ready for anyone about me. Surprisingly, they understood me.
