“I can’t marry Ifakolade, God forbid… Ifakolade of all people, because of revenge… Maami,  don’t force me into another error,  this was exactly how you forced me into marrying Daniel the Igbo man because of money.

Maami because you want to kill Larry out of revenge, you want me to marry Ifakolade… a drug addict, an assassin, a tout…. Maami…. Please let me be… You know what, I am no more interested in killing Larry again, let God fight…” I said

“What did I hear you say? God will fight? How come God has not been fighting, why did God not stop him from killing my daughter….

Muyiwa, why did you come back, you have brought us back luck, Your sister who just did her marriage introduction is dead and you expect me not to kill the one who has caused me pain….

You know what, Get out.. Get out…. “Maami said

“Maami, what?” I asked in disbelief

“I said get out…” My Sisters were pleading on my behalf, my mother was definitely high on something, I took my slippers and left the house, it was around 12:30am… My immediate sister was calling me to come back…. But I was not listening… I also wanted out…

I kept walking with no destination in mind as a lot crossed my mind,  from suicide,  to insanity or going back to Larry’s place in the city and  asking him to Kill ME…. but in the midst of this,  it seem like someone was pushing me from behind towards a particular direction.

I must have walked for 20 minutes when I became conscious of myself…  “Where was I going at this hour of the night?”

I asked myself.  I decided to turn back,  but suddenly I felt this painful leg cramps that didn’t let my leg move one inch from where I was,  I didn’t want to scream so as not to attract unnecessary attention,  so I sat on the floor giving my leg time to rest…

Everywhere was silent, but in that silence, I could hear a familiar tone, it was one of my old songs titled “NINU IRORA” (IN TIMES OF PAINS). I stood up and followed the sound…Hoping I would be given shelter for the night…

I kept singing along as I drew near to the house where the music was coming from…

“Ninu Irora, Mo ba Eleda mi soro (In times of pain, I speak to my creator)  Ninu Isoro, Mo ba Eleda mi soro (In times of Problems, I speak to my creator) Tori Eleda lo Da Eda (Because, it was the creator that created the created)

I kept singing this song as its meaning hit me… I wrote and sang this song over 7 years ago, and now I suddenly understood the song…

In all of my problems and challenges, I had not been speaking (Praying) to my creator… I started singing the song with so much passion, I didn’t care if any one heard me…. I sat on a closed well beside the house…

“Sis Grace…. “I heard my name. It was the newly posted pastor who had visited me few weeks back, the music was coming from his house…

“It’s late out here ma, what are you doing out here… Are you OK? ”

No words came out of my Mouth but the song and tears from my eyes.  I saw him stretch forth His hand to me, the hand looked to me like a chance of a new life…. I was torn between accepting or declining, but I am grateful

that I accepted that hand because it shaped the next two weeks after that night…

I got to know his name was Pastor James, he had lost his wife Two years earlier, and he didn’t have a child.

He took me in and for two weeks,  I was pampered, he never asked me any question,  he never preached to me,  but every morning he would come to me in the room and pray for me and the baby…. His prayer was simple…

“Lord, show my Sis Grace how much you love her, please encourage her and make her happy in Jesus name”…He always ended with a smile, a smile so genuine I wondered if he was human.

Every day before he left for church which was just close by, he would play one of my Audio CD’s he had and put it on Automatic replay…

I had time to heal, I had time to think…away from the harsh world.

I spoke to him for the first time after 8 days…

“I need to tell you something, pastor James and I hope you still like me when I am done” I said very gently

He showed no expression as I narrated EVERYTHING… but when I was done, He looked at me with that golden smile and said  “Is that all?”…. The way he asked so simply further broke ME IN tears… as he held my hands and said his simple Prayer again.

He wiped my tears and said this to me…  “The fact that a Lion is wounded and injured does not make it less of a Lion, it just needs time to heal and rise up to return back to the position of being called the “KING OF THE JUNGLE”…

I believe my own Sister Grace will rise again, Larry was just a distraction…You will rise again… ”

I had not felt love and care like this before, Pastor James started making me see the pregnancy as something I should be joyful about. His smiles…. I was always looking forward to it…

Was this redemption? Was this God’s second chance?  Could God be Merciful enough to make Pastor James write a new chapter in the story of my life or was this another deceiver like Larry….

Every night after the 8th day I opened up to him, we would play a game, which Pastor James Invented … “Who sings it better?”.

It was a game of all my songs from my 10 albums, he would pick a song and we both will try to sing it individually.  Funny enough we were the judges as well…. I was surprised that he knew ALL my songs…

There were some I even forgot the lyrics, he would be the one to remind me….  Pastor James, was too true to be real. I felt like I had known him for years.

I felt I had seen my solution and that’s why one night I walked up to the living room where he was sleeping.  I woke him up telling him I could not sleep, he asked if there was anything he could do to help me…

I simply answered “Marry ME, please”…

Pastor James was shocked to say the least as sleep immediately cleared from His eyes… and his answer shocked me…

“NO… I mean Yes… I would love to marry you. But not like this… I don’t mean the pregnancy, but I mean your state of mind, Grace…

Marrying you would be the greatest privilege, but right now, you don’t need me, you need God…

You know since the last time you told me you are Orishamuyiwa, you haven’t rededicated your life back to Christ and the truth is after I lost my wife, I have been praying for a new wife….

So if God gives me the privilege of making you my wife,  I would be the happiest,  but I can’t marry an Orishamuyiwa,  I can’t marry outside of Christ… “He said in all honesty

“I am not yet sure I want to rededicate my life yet…I don’t know…I Am still in a confused state… “I replied

“Then “WE” can’t happen… Grace I can’t love you outside God… The truth is I don’t know if this is God’s doing, but the truth is I really love and care about you, and I don’t care about the past, I care about the future…

So what do you say? Are you ready to come back to God…? “He asked looking straight into my eyes

I didn’t say a word, rather I laid my head on his shoulder, and there was silence for close to 10 minutes without each of us saying anything.  I guess God gave me that time to make up my mind because of what was about to happen….

What?  We heard a loud bang on the door, it was 1:30am,  “Open this door….” Ifakolade… Ifakolade was around… That was Ifakolade’s voice… I started shivering…

“Pastor, that woman in your room is my wife to be, we have an unfinished business together… Ask her, I was on my own…

She came looking for me… She brought me trouble, and I can’t have peace of mind until the trouble is over “Ifakolade said while his boys were trying to forcefully open the door…

Pastor James faced me and asked me to run out through the back door, but I couldn’t leave him to their mercy…

They would kill him…. While we were arguing, the door broke and I hugged Pastor James in fear. Ifakolade didn’t like that sight… You could tell from his eyes….

“OK… so it has been the pastor doing what I am supposed to be doing? …Good, then the matter has been solved, Baba Jawegbona said two lovers must shoot Larry, then you and your pastor boyfriend must get my revenge for me…“ Ifakolade said with a sneer

“God Forbid… I can never shed Human blood” Pastor James said with all audacity…

“But you can be sleeping with a pregnant woman?” Ifakolade said trying to ridicule Pastor James “I have not been ….”

Pastor James was saying but stopped suddenly and said ” I am going to marry her and as my wife to be I would never let her shed blood…., she might have made a bargain with you in the past,  but that was in the past.. ”

“Really?”  Ifakolade moves close to Pastor James and pointed his gun at His head…, while directing the “REALLY” to me…  “Nooo…don’t shoot him please… Ifakolade… I will marry you…

Don’t touch him please, he is innocent, I don’t want to be guilty of his own blood too.  I am ready to do whatever you want” I said with tears and fear all over me…

“Stop it Grace… This has been the problem… You don’t know how to say No… Please Say no to this devilish bargain… He can’t kill me… It is just an empty threat”

Pastor James said As if to answer Pastor James, Ifakolade shot the pillow beside Grace to confirm that his gun was loaded… “So Grace OR Oosamuyiwa…

Which one are you sef? What is your final answer…? It is either I kill your pastor boyfriend and I know I have gotten my revenge or you marry me and we get rid of that useless man together? ”

“Grace… Let him kill me, I am not afraid of death… I know where I am going after death, but if you let him push you, you will kill Larry and be guilty of murder… Let him kill me…

The world is waiting for you to rise again…. Please…” “1..2…3…” Ifakolade was counting….  “Stop it… “I screamed I walked closed to James, and with tears I couldn’t help, I held his hand…

“James …You have been an angel to me, I can’t bear to see you die, just let me do this, after Larry’s death, my marital contract with him will be over… I believe God Will still open his arms to receive me when I am done… But will you still want to marry me….by then…???

For the first time,  I saw James in tears, he had no answer for me… he was always hopeful and full of smiles…,  but that day…I didn’t see any of those….

Ifakolade pulled me out of the house, Pastor James was not ready to let go of my hands, but I had to let go of his….   A new and interesting chapter in my life was concluded so soon, but now Ifakolade was writing a new one….

If you were in my shoes, what would you have done….? Would I have let poor James die because of me….?
