BEHIND CHURCH DOORS Story - ANE Story

Episode 32.

“Things come apart so easily when they have been held together by lies.”
TIA

When I unlock my car and get in behind the steering wheel , tears start falling down my face and my body shudders as I am unable to contain the pain and anguishI feel in my heart. His reaction isn’t what I expected,I was more than certain he would be happy to have a child with me. I don’t know why I feel so bad though, maybe this child is not even his after all, maybe it’s Zyair’s but what if it’s his?

When the tears subside, I start the car and take off but instead of going home straight, I drive to Sanna’s house- she is the only one I can talk to about this issue.

As soon as I park in her driveway and step out of the car, the front door opens and I meet Sanna at the door. She must have seen me drive in from the window.
“Tia! You were the last person I was expecting to see here tonight. Aren’t you supposed to be with Kingsely tonight?”
“I was with him.”
“Okay, is everything okay?”
“Can we go in first? I am tired.”
“Sure.”
I follow her into the kitchen and sit at the table. Sanna pours up two glasses of wine before she places one in front of me.
“Can I have some water instead?”
She laughs,” you would rather have water than wine? Excuse me, what have you done to my best friend?” She asks, while she’d walk me over to the fridge and pour me a big glass of water.
“Thank you,” I respond, taking a large gulp when she hands me the water.
“So what’s going on? Have you been crying?”
“I am pregnant.”
“That’s good news, you and Zyair have been waiting for this for a long time, he must be excited.”
I keep quiet.
“What?”
“I don’t even know if it’s his.”
“What do you mean?”
“Kingsley and I haven’t been using protection.”
“Oh my God Tia, why would you be that careless?”
“I don’t know, he said he hated condoms.”
“And you allowed him to have sex with you just like that? What were you thinking?”
“I thought he would be happy to have a child with me.”
“My God Tia you are so naive. Kingsley is a married man, he already has children. Why would he want a child with you? I thought about this and I told you to only use him for the money and not get attached.”
“I couldn’t help it, he was so nice to me and I just thought he…,” I pause, trying hard to swallow the lump of emotion threatening to choke my voice with the tears I am trying so hard to blink away.
“He was so nice because you were sleeping with him. All the money and gifts you have been getting haven’t been for free, they have been in exchange for sex and your time.”
“Does that make me a prostitute?”
“Your words not mine.”
“I thought he wanted more. He said our affair was a godly one and…”
“And you believed that trash?” She shakes her head. “Anyway what’s done is done, have you told anyone about the pregnancy?”
“I Kingsley?”
“And he told you he wants nothing to do with it right? That’s why you are here?”
“Yes.”
“So you have two choices here. One, You wash your face and touch it up a bit then you drive home and excitedly tell your husband you just found out you are pregnant.”
“And what’s the second option?”
“You get rid of it but make it look like you had a miscarriage and didn’t even know you were pregnant.”
“But why would I do that?”
“I don’t know.”
“I don’t want to get rid of it.”
“Then keep it.”
“And what if it’s not Zyair’s baby?”
“Pretend it’s his until we cross that bridge.”
“You think that will work?”
“A lot of women do that.”
“I am scared.”
“Why? You have been sleeping with another man for all this long and haven’t been scared. Why now?”
“There’s a child involved and I don’t want to get exposed. Imagine what people will say when they find out I cheated with a man of God, they will call me names.”
“No one needs to know about this.”
“Okay.”
“You need to go home and talk to your husband. Everything is going to be fine.”
“Okay, thank you,” I say, then rise to my feet.
“Where are your shoes?”
“In the car.”
She laughs, ” Pregnancy is already doing a number on you, how far along are you?”
“Three months.”
“Oh great, I am happy for you regardless of the situation, a child is a blessing.”
“Thank you.”

PASTOR RUTH

I am in the study doing my daily evening devotion when the door creaks open and my husband walks in holding the bouquet of flowers in his hand.
“Hey Ruth,” He smiles, leaning in to lightly kiss my lips. “I got you these,” he hands me the flowers and I hesitantly stare at them before I get them.
“How’s the devotion going?” He asks, sitting on the chair next to me.
“What have you done?”
“What do you mean?”
“You are never this nice unless you want me to clean up your mess. So what have you done this time around?” I ask, placing my Bible on the table. I stare at him intently.
“I messed up, I am sorry. I should have listened to you.”
“She is pregnant?” I ask. I have been observing Tia for some time andI could tell she was up even though she’s been trying to hide it.
“Yes.”
“How many times did you sleep with her?”
“A couple of times. I swear she seduced me and…”
“They all seduce you don’t they?”
“Can you make sure she does not speak about this to anyone?”
“I told you to leave her alone but you wouldn’t.”
“It was the work of the devil.”
“Take responsibility for your actions and stop accusing that innocent devil,” I yell.
“I am sorry.”
“I am tired of your bullshit Kingsley I am tired,” I yell again before bursting into tears.
And then his arms wrap around me almost too tightly as he pulls me close, breathing me in. “I’m sorry, Ruth I am sorry.”
I am tired of this marriage. I don’t know how long I can go on like this.
To Be Continued…. . . .
