TIMISIRE THE GOLDEN GIRL by Opeyemi Akintunde _ ANE Story
Share this post:

Episode 20.

Joy knew her Identity, but she was not about to disclose it. She wanted to forget the life she was coming from. From Royalty she moved into the trenches becoming a cleaner at the hotel. This was to run away from shame. She had suffered shame at the Palace, and shame raised to power two had she just walked out from.

She remembered her head becoming suddenly clouded with so many thoughts after the female guest had splashed water on her. She remembered hearing ” Run!” in her head.

Sitting down in the room they had provided for her in the church, recollection of all that led her to the crusade crowd started playing back in her brain.

” Hello!”

Joy looked up, the woman who had told her God was good was standing in front of her with a white nylon. The aroma that followed her entrance gave Joy the insight as to what was in the nylon bag.

” Jollof Rice!” Joy’s sense of smell picked it up.

” Hi ma” Joy replied

” How are you feeling?” Rere asked smiling

” Good!”

” I brought you Jollof Rice and chicken, I hope you like it”

” Yes ma”

Joy watched the beautiful woman walking towards her. She placed the food in her hands.

” Are you comfortable here? Did you sleep well?” Rere asked

” Not really, I am the only person here and it feels creepy” Joy said

Rere couldn’t help but notice the girl’s choice of words. It was obvious she was from a good home.

” Can you remember the schools you attended” Rere asked

Joy didn’t like the way the woman was probing. How could she tell this woman, that she remembered everything about her life but she was not planning to go back to that life.

” No!”

” Not even your name!”

” No!”

“Then you need a name people can call you by. Do you have a choice of name?”

” No, I am blank”

” Let’s see…” Rere said out loud as she put her brain to work.

” Joy! Grace! Peace!’ Rere said like she was scrolling through a lot of names. Meanwhile, Joy froze when she mentioned her real name, but her fear was short-lived , because Rere continued her mental search.

” Names are significant, so let’s look for a name that tells your story” Rere said happily

” What’s my story?” Joy asked hoping she had not been exposed.

” The devil afflicted you, but God found a way of pushing you to a place of goodness”

” Wow! What name can encapsulate that?” Joy asked

” Beats me!” Rere said laughing

” Let’s translate all you said into Yoruba, maybe a new name will be hidden somewhere” Joy said

” Esu pon e loju sugbon oluwa wa ona ati ti o si ibi ire e” Rere translated..

” Hmm, I hear ‘Ire’ in that translation”

” Ire meaning goodness , It is nice but it doesn’t fully encapsulate your story!” Rere said and almost immediately something dropped in her spirit…

” OLUWATIMISIRE” Rere voiced it out…

Joy couldn’t understand how or why, but the name resonated with her. She had been pushed by something on the inside of her against her will into shame everytime.

If God could take over the reins of her life and push her to goodness, she would prefer that.

” I like it!” Joy quickly said.

” You do? ”

” Same here, I have never heard the name. It dropped in my Spirit like God was the one who gave the name.”

” I am TIMISIRE, my name is TIMISIRE” Joy said repeatedly as a way registering the name in her mind.

” Hello Oluwatimisire” Rere said laughing

” Hello Aunty Rereloluwa” Joy replied .

” God, please keep pushing me to goodness, please don’t let me misbehave here” Joy now called TIMISIRE said within herself.
