Adesewa the pregnant corper (a true life story)- Episode 11

 

-Ojo Oluwasegun
She wiped her tears, came to me and said “when last did you see your menses?” It was then I remembered I saw it last in April, I’ve not seen it in May.

I checked my calendar, with tears rolling down my cheeks, I said “April 11, ma”.                                                             “And what is today’s date?.. 23rd May, you ought to have seen it before now….so, you didn’t even know you’ve missed your period!.Ok, let’s go to the clinic for confirmation.”

I dressed up and followed her to the clinic.
A pregnancy test was done, and the result was positive. When we left the clinic, Mrs. Williams drove straight to the
church. We entered the office, and she locked the door behind us. We were the only ones in the church premises.
She said “Let’s pray”.
She prayed. After the prayer, I couldn’t lift up my head, I was just looking down, I didn’t want to look at her face, because I knew what the next question would be, and that was the last question I wanted to answer.

Then she said “Sis Sewa, now that we have confirmed that you are pregnant, can you tell me who is responsible for the pregnancy?”.
I didn’t answer. I was just sobbing in tears.

“I didn’t ask you to weep, I said who is responsible for the pregnancy?”

Now, I couldn’t stand it any longer. I felt like throwing up, I was feeling dizzy, I was very weak. My tummy was turning up and down.

I got up from where I was sitting, opposite her across the table managed to get to where she was, leaned on her and
fainted.

By the time I would wake up, I saw her speaking in tongues, my dress was wet with water. She had a paper in her hands with which she was blowing air on my wet body.

When I realised what had happened, I opened my mouth and said: “Mummy, I’m sorry for putting you through this”.
“She said “Forget about that….Are you now okay?”
“Yes ma”. I answered.
“Thank you, Jesus”. She murmured.

She quickly plugged an electric kettle which was in the office, got a mug, put a teabag in it, poured hot water and
added sugar.

She said “Now take this. I didn’t put milk, so it doesn’t nauseate you”.
I collected it from her, and said: “Thank you ma”. I tookn it, and I felt better.
She allowed me to relax very well before she continued.
“Now, tell me, who impregnated you?”
I bowed my head again.
“Tell me now!”
I couldn’t talk..but I must tell her now, I had no choice. Then, a thought came to my mind, “Write it in a paper”.
I saw a pen on that table, took a small piece of paper also
from the table, I wrote “Bode”.

I pushed it to her on the other side of the table where she sat gazing at me amazingly.
I didn’t know what to expect afterwards.
After reading it, she shouted “Ahhhhh! Lord Jesus!!”

She held her head with her two hands, bowed down her head for about 5 minutes, without saying anything.
I also bowed my head, but I was peeping at her once in a
while.

By the time she lifted up her head, her eyes were filled with tears. I can’t imagine how disappointed she was.
She looked at me and bowed her head again. I was just weeping.

After about 10 minutes, she got up from her seat, came to me, pulled me up and gave me a very warm and tight
hug. She said “I know how you are feeling. I was once in your shoes..but hear this, though you have fallen into sin, but that is not the end of your life, nor the end of your Christianity. Jesus the merciful Savior is still available to cleanse you. He still loves you. All He wants you to do is to repent, ask for forgiveness and sin no more. If He could have mercy on me, He will surely have mercy on you too.”

 

Hmmmm…..what happened next? What did pastor Mrs. Williams mean by saying “I was once in your shoes”? How do you think Bode will react if he hears the pregnancy news? Will he accept or deny it? Get all the answers in the next episode.

Watch out for the next Episode

APC: Nigerians still trust us, we will win 2023 elections convincingly

post-image

Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims it would “convincingly” win the next gubernatorial election in Anambra and the presidential election in 2023.

John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”

“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.

“Therefore, there is a greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians.
