Episode 17.

BISHOP K

The night is closed in dark and cold. A cool breeze danks from the river and breathes into my face, making goosebumps stand out on my skin.

Clad in tattered black robes sashed in red, I am standing in line with other church leaders, bare feet waiting for my turn to rededicate my commitment to Orisha primordial goddess of the sea.

After what seems like an eternity, the priestess with long grey hair and a white robe calls my name and I walk towards her. Stripping, she stands waist deep in the water and I follow suit. As I stand in front of her, she pours some oil on my head while chanting in a slow and low tone, words that I can’t understand.

Next she raises her arm slowly towards heaven and a crystal bowl, soaring high drops into her hand. She gives it to me and asks that I drink from it which I do. The liquid stirs something within me and I scream in happiness at being taken back into the family.

TIA
I look at the clock and yawn. Two in the morning already, I have been waiting for the Bishop for over four hours. He went out around 21 saying he had to attend a meeting and would be back within an hour but he is not yet here and his phone is off.

Today is the third day that we have been in S.A and I haven’t attended any meetings with the Bishop, he has actually left me alone most of the time saying the meetings are private and I wouldn’t be allowed in. He said he brought me here to attend to his private needs, the Bishop and I haven’t even had sex yet but we have been making out a lot.

Anyway tomorrow is my birthday, I hope Bishop will be around. I wouldn’t want to spend my birthday alone in a strange country, that would be boring.

Amidst all this chaos of thoughts I don’t know when I dozed off. Because when I open my eyes it’s morning and rays of sun are streaming through the window.

The Bishop’s side of the bed is empty and cold indicating that he has been up for some time now. The phone on the side table is what gives me the assurance that he came back to the apartment last night.

Bishop rented us a five – room suite apartment when we arrived in S.A. Getting out of bed, I wrap my thick terry robe around my body and slip my feet into my slippers. I am about to walk out of the bedroom when my phone rings so I turn and pick it.
“Hello.”
“Happy Birthday Babe,” Zyair excitedly says.
“Thank you.”
“I wish you were here.”
“What would you have done?”
“I would have obviously taken you out.”
“To the usual restaurants?”
“Babe?”
There is silence on the other end of the line.
“I am about to get ready for a meeting. Can I call you later?”
“Okay. I hope you have a great birthday.”
“Thank you.”
“I love you.”
“The feeling is mutual,” I say before I end the call and head out. When I walk into the living room, I freeze on the spot to stare at the sight before me. Streamers and balloons decorate the living room while colorful confetti are littered on the tiled floor.

The tables are piled high with gifts. There’s one table in the middle of the room with a huge cake on it and some food.
‘Happy Birthday!” Bishop Exclaims.
“Oh my God! How did you do all this?”
He smiles, “I have my ways darling.”
“I can’t believe I just woke up to this. No one has ever done this,” I say, my voice almost choking with emotion.
“Oh, come here,” he pulls me into his arms and holds me close to him. “You deserve this and so much more.”
“Thank you.”
“You are welcome,” he kisses me briefly and says, “breakfast is ready, do you want to eat before you open your gifts?”
“What do you think?”
“I think we should eat first. I don’t want you to be distracted when you open your gifts.”

“Now I am curious to see what you got me.”
“Only the best for a queen like you. I have a whole lot planned for today so you have to be ready.”
“I really can’t wait.”
We sit down and he dishes for us then we get eating.
“What time did you get home last night?”
“I am not sure but you were passed out when I got here and I didn’t want to disturb you. I was busy making arrangements for all this.”
“You outdid yourself sir.”
He smiles,” I am glad I have put a smile on your face.”
“So what’s for the rest of the day?”
“It’s a surprise. You just have to be patient. We will have so much fun today, I want the day to be memorable for you. I don’t have any more meetings here so tomorrow we will stay in and just relax then we can travel back on Saturday. Is that okay with you?”
“Yes, that’s fine.”
We eventually finish eating and he asks me to make a wish before I blow the candles on the cake. After that he cuts a few pieces and feeds me.
“Time for presents!” I exclaim.
He sits on the couch, “you can open them while I watch,” he says and I do just that.
He has gotten me a lot of things, some expensive jewelry, some bags, shoes and clothes, there’s even a box with a lot of money in it. When I finally open the last box, I jump up and down in excitement- it’s the iPhone 13 pro max.
“You remembered?”
“Ofcourse.”
“You are the best,” I lean in and kiss him passionately. “OMG I can’t wait to tell Sanna I have an iPhone now and I don’t have to use hers for photos.”
“Calm down.”
“Thank you so much.”
“You are welcome princess.”
To Be Continued… . . .

Antony marked his Manchester United debut with a well-taken goal against Arsenal on Sunday, becoming the first Brazilian to score on his Premier League bow for the club. The winger, who arrived from Ajax in an £81.3million (€95m) deal, latched onto Marcus Rashford’s well-timed pass to slot home after 35 minutes, handing the Red Devils a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford. Antony became the ninth Brazilian player to appear for United in the Premier League. At the age of 22 years and 192 days, Antony’s goal made him the youngest Brazilian to score on his Premier League debut for any team. Casemiro became the eighth Brazilian to appear for United in the competition last month after joining from Real Madrid, but the midfielder is still awaiting his first start for the club. Antony was United’s most costly addition in a busy transfer window, having joined the likes of Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Martin Dubravka in making the switch to Old Trafford.
