There is nothing as painful as being beaten, pinned or caught in your own game. I couldn’t believe my new prey would be bold enough to announce our outrageous affair to the congregation.

Of course she never mentioned my name, but it wasn’t enough to prevent most of the female church members from throwing unguarded stares at me as if they all knew about us. The rest of the congregation simply followed her eyes which were well fixed on me as she talked, clapping and nodding in approval to all she said.

“i came to this church hopeless, helpless and lost. But the Lord wiped away my tears, dragged me up and consoled me with a perfect gift. A real man. I won’t mention his name for now, because our Daddy, our great pastor is yet to sanction our union, which hopefully he will do today. This is God’s church. My dear sisters your time of happiness is at hand. Never cease praying” she happily poured out. Ending her speech with a very touching song which lit the whole church aflame with cries and prayers. They were all happy for her.

I knew i had to leave the church for good before i become the biblical Saul who was converted on his way to commit more crime against christians.
I truly wasn’t ready to turn a new leaf. Supposing i were, the big mouthed Mary wouldn’t even fall in my 40th choice.

At the end of church service. I quickly ran out of the church premises with Jboy{my accomplice}.
“o boy, e be like your hook caught wrong fish ooo” he asked seriously as we rushed to my car.

“my guy e worst than you think. Na d fish swallow me and the hook” i murmured, shaking my head and breathing deeply.

“don’t worry i have a plan” he assured me, stopping and facing me with a serious look. But before he could say another word, one of the church ushers rushed up to us.

“excuse me sir. Our pastor is waiting for you at his office. Sister Mary is there already” he announced seriously. I felt like slapping the silly messenger, but couldn’t because i was still in the church premises and some curious members were equally looking and smiling at me.

To be continued.
