The flat was beautifully decorated, Daniel had done a good job with the house. The police officer stayed outside the door of the house as we walked in, I went into the kitchen, it was beautiful, the bedroom… was dimly lit,

Aww… there were beautiful petals on the bed, a beautiful night dress was on the bed. Daniel had prepared in such a short time… He held me from the back…

“Do you know how long, I have waited for this day to come”…he was kissing my neck, I knew I was stinking, I needed a real shower or bath, but before that I needed to ask an important question…

“Daniel, how is it so easy for you to forgive me and go this extra length for me…”

“We are all sinners, and God has been forgiving us all over and over… have you forgotten the Lord’s Prayer…

Forgive us as we forgive all those who trespass against us… I am grateful, I got another opportunity with you, my love…” he turned me to face him and said

“I miss your small lips”… I smiled as I remembered this was how Daniel was always having his way with me…

“Daniel, I know what usually follows this line, Let me freshen up…” I ran away from his grip, but he took hold of me before I could go far…

“You are always fresh! He pulled me and carried me to the bed…. —————————————————–   The next day, was a picnic with Pastor James, Joyce and their son. The free 3 days was the best time of my life in years, I had fun….

I had been feeling weak all week, I complained to Daniel, when he came around the day before and he had promised to get me very good malaria drugs.

He came to the prison, unusually early, in order to give me my drugs. He had brought some homemade food, but I felt like throwing up on seeing the food.

I suddenly heard in my spirit, “Mercy has found you, you are carrying a baby, and her name shall be called “MERCY”.

The drugs fell from my hand and I faced Daniel with a blank look. I stood up and moved away from Daniel… Daniel was scared…

‘My Grace, what is it? Are you ok?”

“I heard something..” Daniel, I want you to take me out right now, I still have four free days in this year right?

Daniel nodded…but he was confused…

“Why?“ he asked “I will Explain later, just take me out”…

I was cleared and I went out with Daniel. When I saw a signpost of a Lab, I told him to park right in front of it…Daniel still did not get the gist…

“You want to do a malaria test?” he asked… I refused to say a word.

On getting to the Lab attendant, I told him I wanted to do a blood pregnancy test, Daniel was shocked, but he suddenly became speechless as we both anxiously waited for the result…

The Result came out and it turned out “POSITIVE”…

Our Joy knew no bounds, I told him what I heard, and we kept the name “MERCY”

Seven months later, I gave birth to Mercy at the Prison hospital. Daniel took over the child from me, he and MAMA were nursing her. Daniel always brought her for breastfeeding every morning and Evening….

I always spent my three free weekends with Daniel and Mercy. We travelled to different parts of the country. Daniel made it a duty that Mercy saw me at least three times every week in the evening…

My music was soaring, as the government kept sponsoring my music. God was ever faithful, releasing fresh songs for me.

Pastor James and his wife were covenant family friends, they also relocated close to the prison, as Joyce  volunteered to assist in training Mercy in areas ,Daniel could not…

I never missed any important celebration in Mercy and Daniel’s Life, it was always arranged to be on one of my free days…

God still molded something great out of my life despite the limitation of the Prison doors…
