A few days later,
“Good morning Bishop,” I say when I walk into the office. It’s half past ten, I told Bishop I had another Doctors appointment this morning when in reality I had an interview with the family of the woman who died attempting to abort Bishop Kingsley’s pregnancy this morning. The family tried to report Bishop to the police but his wife came through and cleaned up the mess using her connections. I wonder what kind of woman Pastor Ruth is, there was a time I used to feel sorry for her but not anymore, she too needs to go down, she is an accomplice to her husband’s dirty deeds.
With everything I have gathered. I am more than ready to expose the Bishop, I will tender in my resignation by the end of this week.
“Good morning Missy,” he responds.
He has been acting up since that night we had dinner at his place.
“So are your doctor’s appointments becoming regular? What exactly are you sick of?”
“I am sorry I am not at liberty to discuss my sickness with you. It’s a private matter.”
“Are you pregnant?”
“Are you pregnant?”
“No, I am not pregnant.”
“I would have been heartbroken if I found out you were pregnant.”
“Isn’t it obvious?”
“I like you Missy. I like you a lot.”
“You like me? How?”
“You are such a beautiful woman and I want to show you how much I love you.”
“I think you are crossing the line here Bishop. You are my spiritual father, a married one for that matter.”
“Who cares if I am married? I can spoil you and give you the world if only you can be mine?”
He smiles and walks close to me,” stop acting like a child Missy.”
“I don’t understand what you are talking about so be clear.”
“I want you to be my girlfriend.”
I laugh,” You are joking right?”
“No, I am serious. I am attracted to you, you don’t know how hard it is to control myself when I am in this office with you,”
He looks into my eyes, seductively biting and licking his lips as he proceeds to kiss me on mine. I push him away and slap him hard on the face. “You disgust me!”
“Oh you want to play hard to get?”
Grabbing my hand, he pins me against the table, kissing me with fierce possession. I try to push him away but I can’t because he is stronger.
“Kingsely!” Pastor Ruth yells and he instantly let’s me go. “What are you doing?”
My heart is racing and tears are running down my face, I don’t know what would have happened if his wife hadn’t walked in on us.
He opens his mouth and tries to speak but no words come out of his mouth so he closes it.
“I am so disappointed in you Bishop,” I say between sobs then I grab my bag,” I am reporting you for sexual harrasment,” I say before walking out of the office.
“Missy!” Pastor Ruth comes running after me but I don’t turn back. I quickly walk towards my car and she catches me as I am about to get in.
“Can we talk?”
I wipe my face,” About what?”
“What just happened.”
“Your husband tried to force himself on me, what’s there to talk about?”
“Can we go somewhere and talk?”
“I don’t want to talk to you. I am going to the police right away.”
“Please hear me out first before you make any decisions.”
I get into my car and signal for her to get in too. I could use this talk to my advantage.
“We can talk right here.”
“I want some privacy.”
“So where do you suggest we talk from?”
“I know a perfect place. I will direct you there.”
Everything that happened with Bishop is recorded, I always have my recorder on each time I enter that Office. My conversation with this woman too will be recorded.
We drive in silence for almost an hour until we get to a black gate and she tells me to pull up which I do.
“We are here,” she says.
“Give me a minute,” I say.
She steps out of the car and waits while I text Manny and inform him about what’s happening. I text him the recording and my location as well then I step out.
She leads me into the house and asks me to take a seat.
“I am all ears,” I say after a few minutes of silence.
“I don’t want you to press charges against my husband.”
“He tried to force himself on me. Why shouldn’t I?”
“He is a man of God, one of the most respected anointed men of God in the country. You would ruin his reputation if you went to the police with this.”
I laugh,”you are joking right?”
“No I am not. I am serious please Missy.”
“I am sorry Pastor Ruth I will do no such thing. I am reporting your husband to the police and I will go public with this issue.”
“How much do you want?”
“Name your price.”
“I don’t want your money.”
She grabs her cheque book from her bag, “any amount you want I will give you.”
“Do you do this often?”
“Pay people to cover your husband’s dirty?”
“Kingsley is an honorable man, what he did to you is a mistake, it was the work of the devil this isn’t something he does all the time.”
I rise to my feet,” I am sorry Pastor Ruth. I don’t want your money, your husband will pay for what he tried to do to me.”
“You can’t destroy what he worked so hard to build over the years. Please listen to me Missy,” she pleads.
“That man doesn’t even love and respect you. Why do you keep doing this to yourself?”
“You know nothing about him and I.”
“Your husband is a womanizer. I am not the first one he tried to do that to. I am obviously not the last but unlike the others I will speak out. I won’t be intimidated.”
“Good day Pastor Ruth,” I say before marching out of the house.
When she leaves, I grab my phone and call Kingsley, I hate that he always has to put me in the middle of such stupid situations where I have to beg his mistresses and pay them off so they don’t ruin our reputation because this isn’t about him alone, this is about me and my children too plus our families. If Kingsley is exposed then we will all be dragged into the mud and that’s something I am not ready to face.
“Hello,” He answers almost immediately.
“You know that you are stupid right?”
“I am still your husband.”
“Fuck you Kingsley. Fuck you a million times for always messing us up.”
“What did she say?”
“She refused to get my money. This one seems determined, she will report you to the police just like she promised.”
“Where is she?”
“She just left.”
“Why did you allow her to leave?”
“What was I supposed to do?”
“I don’t know but you should have done something.”
“You find her and do something yourself. I will not forgive you if you drag my children and I in this mess,” I hung up. Then I sit down on the couch and try to think on how best we can sort this one out.
