Episode 46.

“Never be a blind follower of any people in your life. Because, whatever people demonstrate themselves outside, in reality they may the opposite inside”

I am talking to Bishop K on the phone when Zyair walks into the bedroom and drops his bag on the floor before he starts undressing so he can jump into the shower. He always takes a bath when he gets home from work, he is an hour late as usual, I am not even complaining because he and I hardly talk these days.

It’s not his fault though that our marriage is crumbling- Zyair is amazing, I just happened to fall in love with someone else and there’s nothing I can do- the heart wants what it wants right? You can’t control who you fall in love with. I could ask Zyair for a divorce but that would be setting myself up for disaster especially now that things are unstable with Bishop. I can’t wait to have the baby though so I can conduct a DNA test and ascertain who the father really is. The father’s baby will determine the next step I will take in life. I kept the money that Pastor Ruth gave me. It will come in handy when I have to pay for the DNA test.
“Are you still there?” He asks.
“Yes I am Bishop and you don’t have to worry about anything. I am on your side and I will testify in court if the case gets that far.”
With a towel wrapped around his towel Zyair heads towards the bathroom.
“The police will obviously want to interview you so be at work tomorrow and keep everything running like you do.”
“Will you be at the office?”
“I will be in the afternoon hopefully. I have a meeting with the lawyer and some other people in the morning.”
“And Tia?”
“Thank you for believing in me.”
“You know I’ve got your back,” I respond, rubbing my belly as I feel my baby kick.
“When all this is done, I will take you somewhere special.”
“Just me and you?” I excitedly ask.
“Yes, just you and me?”
Zyair walks back into the room while I am searching for Missy’s phone number.
I need to talk to her so- she needs to drop this stupid case against Bishop.
“Who were you talking to on the phone?” Zyair asks as he dries himself.
“Bishop Kingsley.”
“Why are you still talking to that man?”
“Excuse me?”
“Have you checked Facebook in the last couple of hours? Your papa is trending, he was arrested for sexual harrasment and..”
“I was at the office when the police came and I saw everything being said on Facebook.”
“And you are still talking to him?”
I shrug, ” Yes, he is my spiritual father.”
He laughs.
“What’s funny?”
“A rapist? Your spiritual father?”
“Missy is sick. None of the things she said about Bishop are true. She is just a woman that is obsessed with him.”
“I don’t want you going back to that church again. And my word is final.”
“You don’t get to tell me what to do Zyair. I will go back to that church, I will still talk to the Bishop and I am going to testify in court whether you like it or not.”
“Is that so?”
“Then maybe you should pack your things and move in with him already since you feel like a part of his family.”
“You are kicking me out?”
“Your words not mine.”
“I will defend Bishop, even if it’s the last thing I do on earth and you just have to deal with it.”
“Then you will have to choose between your Bishop and this marriage because I am fucking tired of competing with him and that church of his. You haven’t been yourself since you joined that church, you think I haven’t seen how distant and moody you have been?”
“I am pregnant.”
“And so are a bunch of other women but they don’t behave like you.”
“You are stressing me out.”
“I hope I am clear, it’s either him or me. I am not compromising on that one.”
“I need some water,” I get out of bed and head out.
“You can run but you can’t hide. I will be here when you decide to come back to bed,” he calls after me. I wonder why Zyair is being such an insensitive jerk.


“The coast is clear, you can come out now,” Missy says after my mother leaves. Ryan and I eavesdropped on the conversation between my mother and Missy. I am still shocked at everything we heard, for a moment there I thought I was dreaming so I had to pinch myself before I fell into another shock of disbelief that I don’t know Pastor Ruth at all- five years earlier if someone had told this is the kind of woman my mother is, I swear I would have laughed in their face.

My parents are evil, they aren’t true disciples of God- they just put on a facade.You know all these years I have always wondered why my father’s teachings have always been centered on money, miracles, riches and never on salvation but now I get it. They are false Prophets who teach false doctrine and lead people away from the true gospel message and teaching of God found in the Bible.
“Are you okay?” Ryan worriedly looks at me.
“I seriously feel like I am going to be sick.”
“Just take a deep breath, it will be alright.”
“Nothing will ever be alright. If my parents are exposed, my siblings and I will be dragged into this mess and when I testify against them, I will be called names. I will never live a normal life after this.”
“You don’t have to testify against them,”Missy says walking into the room before she hands me a cup of tea. “We have more than enough people to do that.”
I take a sip from my cup of tea,” I want to do this. I want to meet my brother too.”
“Whenever you are ready.”
There is a silence as I drink my tea and I am done, I rise to my feet and stare at Ryan,” Can you drive me home? I don’t feel like driving.”
“Home? Or school?”
“My parents’ home. I think it’s about time I faceed them.”
“You think this is a good idea?”
He stands up and I give him my keys.
“Be safe you two,” Missy says as we head out.
To Be Continued…. . . .
