He paused and picked his phone, he’d received a message from
the blogger who’d published the news concerning the alleged
affair of Pastor Ita and his supposed girlfriend, how this blogger
got his number, he didn’t know.
HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT MY PROPOSAL? WHAT’S YOUR
FEEDBACK?
***
He was glued to his chair for some minutes, the strange call he’d
received had unsettled him,he needed to do something about it.
‘I know what you’re doing, it makes me sick and I’m going to tell’
the words echoed in his br@in.
‘I hope not’ the pastor sighed, he hoped no one was trying to
blackmail him.
‘Goodmorning man of God’ Helen sauntered into the room,
wondering why it had taken Nelson ages to get himself re-ady.
‘Morning Helen’ the preacher replied, he had to act normal, he
couldn’t let his wife know about the caller, that line of thought
scared him.
What if the caller knew about his secret affair with Rose? He
couldn’t tell his wife, he couldn’t risk her finding out about his affair
with his own biological daughter.
‘You don’t look well’ Helen observed him from her mirror. Her
husband was usually very cheerful in the mornings, but from the
grim expression on his face, everything wasn’t alright.
‘I am fine, I just had a revelation from the lord, it’s troubling me’
he lied.
‘What revelation? plea-se share it with me’ she was concerned
about his wellbieng, though she had not given up on finding his
secret lover, she was sure he had one.
‘Impending doom, I must go to church today and organize a fast
within the week’ he rose to his feet.
‘That would be nice’ Helen replied and quic-kly fetched her buzzing
phone.
‘What’s all these’? Helen sm-irked as she cli-cked on the image of
her husband pe-cking a girl whose facial features were blurred.
‘What’s that’? Pastor It asked curiously.
‘Mark said I shouldn’t believe it, he said I could trust you’ Helen
sighed. Someone that had access to her number must have s£nt
her the ph0to of her husband’s alleged affair with an unknown
woman.
‘This isn’t true,it’s ph0toshopped, a bit to tarnish my image, plea-se
don’t believe this’ the Pastor was afraid, someone must have see
them from the h0tel. He had been in the car, k!ss!nghis own
daughter, but he couldn’t tell Helen that, as he’d told her he’d been
heading for a meeting.
‘plea-se be honest with me, I really want to trust you’ Helen stared
de-eply into his eyes. She’d alre-ady made her decision to dump
Nelson and stick with her husband.
‘I am honest dear’ He replied and pe-cked her forehead.

The house was quiet, Rose was in her room, Helen and the Pastor
had gone out and I was left alone in the kitchen. The house was a
hvge one, I noticed that while cleaning, but I enjoyed every bit of
it, I had been in the village for years doing nothing, I loved
working.
‘Don’t you ever rest’? Mark strolled into the kitchen, this was the
second time I’d seen him since he had that argument with his
mother.
‘I…I uhmmm, I just want to make sure everything is in place’ I
replied.
‘No, you have to rest, you’ve been working all day, just take a
break, let us go to the garden’ he walked towards me and took the
kitchen gloves off my f!ngers.
‘Oh no Mark, this isn’t a good idea’ I objected.
‘I am not asking for your permission’ he smiled and f0rç£d me
outside.
‘It’s really beautiful here, so many flowers, your mum plants well
I smiled as we took a seat close to the yellow bells.
‘She didn’t plant them, Grace did’ he quic-kly corrected.
‘Oh, nice, tell me about this your Grace’ I was curious and
confused, I wondered if it was right for me to show him the note
I’d found in her room.
‘I’ll tell you everything once I’m done with this call’ Mark rose to
his feet.
‘What? Mum where are you guys’? he asked.
From the look on his face, something bad must have happened,
prayed silently and hoped no one had died.
‘They just had an accident, dad is seriously injured’ Mark rushed
into the house, leaving me in a garden of flowers.
I don’t know why, roses weren’t my favorite flowers, but I was
drawn to the pink roses in Madam Helen’s garden, I walked
towards them and decided to pluck one for myself.
‘Hello beauties’ I inhaled the de-ep rosy scent, as I opened my
eyes, I found a pearly n£¢klace on the floor close to me, no one
was looking so I carried it,it was too beautiful to be left there.
‘Where did you get that’? Mark asked. I could feel anger in his
voice and I froze, what if he thought me a thief? Did it belong to
him?
‘I just found it here, beneath the roses’ I replied.
‘It belonged to Grace’ he replied.
