TECHNICAL VIRGIN. Episode 54

“What is this am hearing about you and Jumoke?” The church mummy started when Kehinde arrived the parsonage at some minutes past.
“Mummy, I’m sorry, what exactly did you hear about us?” He asked and relaxed back on the cushion.
“Brother Kehinde, is there anything you need me to know?” The church mummy asked trying hard not intrude into his personal affairs.

“Mummy, actually called you this morning because of Jumoke, but I still need to hear from you…” Kehinde was still talking and she quickly cut in order to discourage him from insisting.”Ah! Oma oba, leave what I heard aside. Please go ahead and tell me what you planned telling me.” She said smiling.

He didn’t find it easy saying anything without first hearing what Sade told the church mummy, but for courtesy sake, he swallowed hard before speaking up.
“I actually need your help ma, Jumoke sent me this text last week which I also showed Sade,” he started and showed her the text.
“Yeey!!” The church mummy screamed as she read the text message.
“The same Jumoke that I know?” She asked in surprise.
” yes ma.” Kehinde replied.
“Ah! I understand how she feels but it hasn’t gotten to this extent. So, what did you tell her?” She asked trying to get more information.
“Well, Sade and I agreed that I should ignore her and move on but just yesterday night, while I was praying; I felt the nudging to call and apologise to her because somehow, sometimes ago she visited my office under the guise that she needed medical attention and we ended up kissing each other because her tears weakened me and I couldn’t both yield to make her happy…” Kehinde was still talking and the surprised church mummy interrupted him.

‘You both kissed each other? But did you tell Sade about it? ” the church mummy asked trying hard to hide her surprises.
“That was sometime last year, Sade and I were not in relationship then. But, I told her everything she needed to know about my past and present before our traditional marriage, so she is very much aware.”
“Oh! It happened before you and Sade started?” She asked for clarification and he nodded in the affirmative as he watched her breathe down a sigh of relief.
“Okay! Go ahead, I was actually thinking it happened of recent.” She chipped in feeling a bit relieved and Kehinde went ahead and narrated what happened next, especially how he walked her out disgracefully.

“I felt the need to apologise to her strongly in my spirit though Sade was against the idea, so I called her yesterday night but she refused to pick my calls. After calling her line several times, she sent me this text.” Kehinde narrated sadly as he showed her the text message on his phone which got the church mummy herself speechless.

“Mummy, that young girl have done so much for me in this life that I shouldn’t hurt her for any reason. Yes, I took her virginity and left her, but it wasn’t my plan to leave her that way. I loved her and of all the girls I dated back then, she was the only one I planned settling down with in marriage.” He said painfully and breathed down heavily then continued.
“Even after i gave my life to Christ, i still had in mind to marry her but God told me clearly to stay far away from her that she is not meant to be my wife and I had to leave the campus after graduation without leaving a trace of where I was going with her. I always wish I could right my wrongs but I can’t, if I could, I would have returned her virginity back to her.

Mummy, I need you to help me talk to her to forgive me.” He said with a pen up frustration.
The church mummy kept quiet for a while before asking him one question that had been bothering her.
“But brother Kehinde, do you still love Jumoke?” She asked looking intently into his eyes and he gave a dry smile before answering her.
“Mummy, If I tell you that I have no love in my heart for Jumoke, then am a big liar. I love her but not that kind of love anymore, I can’t have any intimate relationship with her anymore. I just have this feeling of indebtedness for her and nothing more.” He replied smiling.
“Come’on mummy, I love my wife. I love Sade beyond words and can’t trade her for anything. If I wanted Jumoke, I could have gone for her all the while…” Kehinde said laughing.

“But Sade told me you shouted her down over the phone because of Jumoke. Why choose your ex over your wife?” She queried and he was surprised that Sade actually reported him to the church mummy. He kept quiet for a while with his head lowered in displeasure.
“Oma oba, your wedding is few days from now and you shouldn’t give the devil chance to tear you both apart. Jumoke is my spiritual daughter, I will talk to her to leave you people to enjoy your marriage. But please, don’t let any woman ever come between you and your wife.” The church mummy counselled him but he didn’t say a word.
“Brother Kehinde,” the church mummy called him and he lifted up his head and she could see that he wasn’t happy.
“I can see you are still not happy..” The church mummy said.

“Mummy, maybe I should make this thing clear here. Sade can actually talk about Kehinde today because Kehinde is still alive, she could report me to you as her husband because Jumoke saved my life when cult boys wanted to waste my life on campus. I should be a dead and forgotten entity by now,she wouldn’t have even met me if Jumoke had not sacrifice her own life and happiness for me. I was supposed to be at the initiation ground that bloody night, but Jumoke showed up in my house. I didn’t know how she got to know that I was going for cult initiation that night, but she rushed to my lodge and begged me not to go anywhere that my life’s in danger. I insist on going except on one condition which was that she spend the night with me in my room and she painfully accepted.

That was the very night I took her virginity, she cried in pain, soaked in the pool of her own blood and I couldn’t but promised to marry her. I woke up in the morning to the news that my two good friends with whom I was to be initiated the previous night were both shut dead along other cult members at the initiation ground. Jumoke was a very principled girl,and she had refused me sex several times but that night, she sacrificed her virginity for my life. ” Kehinde narrated sadly and breathed down before saying the words that touched the church mummy more.
“I’m sorry if I over reacted, but believe me; not even my mother would speak ill of Jumoke in my presence as Sade did and I would not shout her down. I owe Jumoke my every respect and love.
” All these I have discussed with Sade,why is she finding it difficult to believe me..”
He said and picked up his car keys, excused himself and walked out leaving the overwhelmed church mummy speechless.

“You are fond of concluding matters too quick. And you must watch it. Watch your anger Sade or else you will spoil things for you.
You told me that Kehinde had gone back to his ex, but you were wrong.” The church mummy called Sade and began to counsel her immediately after he left.
” Even if he did, you can’t get him back by fighting him. You should have drawn closer to him and look for a wise way to get your man back. A wise woman build her home, but a foolish woman tears down her home with her hands,that’s what the bible says. ” the church mummy continued.
“You see, be careful with Kehinde. He is every woman’s dream man but God has given him to you freely without struggle. He is not like Kolade who can come out openly and argue with you when angry, if you push him too hard, you may push him into another woman’s arms because he doesn’t have a strong heart. I don’t know you to have bad character, so don’t even start building one. If you want to enjoy him, act like his baby girl and not like a fellow man. As for his case with Jumoke, don’t ever speak evil of her before him rather join and encourage him to be nice to her and if possible,you should also try to get close to her and build a relationship with her…” The church mummy kept on and on as Sade lowered her head in guilt.
“Finally, Sade find a way to apologise to Kehinde as fast as possible. He is not happy at all.” The church mummy said and she agreed to do as instructed.

“Hello, Jumoke my baby, how are you?” The church mummy called Jumoke on the phone later that night and booked an appointment with her for the next day…

What do you think, is the church mummy’s advice good?

On entering her room, Sade’s phone began to ring in her hand but she wasn’t in the mood to answer any call until she calls and apologise with Kehinde, so she ignored the call without finding out who the caller was.
“Oluwatoyin!”she called her daughter,
” take this money and buy me a one thousand naira recharge card from the deaconess downstairs.” She said and the little girl took off immediately to the recharge card.
“Oh! This person should leave m.e…’ She was saying when the phone rang the third time, she picked it up and was about busying it when her eyes caught the caller’s ID. It was Kehinde that and her heart began to pound as different thoughts ran through her mind.
” Ah! He is going to shout at me, mummy said he is not happy. He is angry with me… ” she said to no one but herself as she fearfully watched as the buzzing of the phone stopped and began to ring the fourth time.

“Sweetheart, please pick up your calls.
I’m sorry I hurt you. Please pick
your calls, am missing you so strongly
over here. Your love is deeply sorry…”

With an opened mouth and widened eyes, Sade read the text that entered her phone after the fourth call ended.
“He called me sweetheart, and he is even apologising to me. He is missing me even after accusing him…” She was still talking to an empty room and her phone began to ring again, but this time, it was one of the girls in her bridals train who was calling and she immediately frown her in disappointment then grudgingly answered it.
“Tolani, please I will call you back later.” She said in order to dismiss the girl who had started telling a long story, trying to cut short the beautiful moment she was already enjoying from the text message.
“OK ma” the Tolani replied and hanged up. Kehinde’s call entered immediately and she quickly picked it up excitedly.

“My beautiful wife, the best among women, the proverb 31 woman, my gorgeous queen, the only woman that has my heart in her palms and the mother of my children…” Sade stood still, engulfed with a mixture of strong emotions and astonishment hearing Kehinde calling her beautiful names.
“Lord, I know I didn’t deserve this man but you gave him to me in order to prove to me that you still love me. Please Lord God,Give me the wisdom to relate and handle him as I ought to…” She found herself praying silently followed by the dropping of joyful tears.
“Hello.. He..llo!” Kehinde said repeatedly when he didn’t hear her say a word.
“Hello” she responded and wiped off the tears on her cheeks.
” Are you crying? Oh my God!” Kehinde’s disturbed voice was heard at the other end.
“I’m sorry, I really didn’t mean to hurt you. I was emotionally stressed up and…” He was still trying to explain when she spoke up.
“I’m sorry brother Kehinde.” She said and not finding more any other word in her head to express herself, she kept quiet and silence ensued for the next few seconds.

“You know what? Just take a cold bath, dress up beautifully and smell nice for me, am coming to take you out right now.” He said calmly and a she found herself smiling and crying at the same time.
“Alright.” Was the only word that came out of her mouth before the call ended. She jumped up in excitement, rushed into the bathroom and was already bathing when Toyin entered.
“Mom,here is the recharge card!” She shouted loud.
“Oluwatoyin, well done o. It took you a whole day to buy recharge card abi?” She replied casually from the bathroom.
“No mummy, deaconess was not around and I had to stay there and wait for her.” Toyin explained childishly.
“Clap for yourself then, maybe she is the only person selling airtime around here” Sade replied as she hurried out of the bathroom.

“But, you told me to buy it from her…” Toyin argued with a smile as she watched her mother.
“Thank you, keep it on the table.” Sade said absent mindedly as she sort out the clothes to wear.
“Are you going somewhere?” The inquisitive Toyin queried seeing her mother dressing up with one of her best outfits.
“Yes,” Sade replied without looking at her.
“Is it with brother Kehinde?” She asked and quickly covered her mouth with her palms when her mother turned to look at her.
“Yes! Miss interviewer, please don’t ask me any question again. Just take whatever you need and start going to big mummy’s house now.” Sade told her and she immediately stood,picked up her school bag and left the room.
She looked at herself over and over before the mirror and was practicing different types of smiles and facial expression when her phone buzzed.
“I’m waiting outside.” Kehinde informed her over the phone and her heart leaped for joy. She quickly picked up her phone and the fancy handbag Kehinde had gotten for her as a surprise before their traditional marriage then kissed the room good bye.

“Am I not blessed to have such a beautiful woman as my wife?” Kehinde asked rhetorically when she entered the car and she suddenly became shy.
“I’ve been watching you from here, you are simply beautiful my love.” He adored her and she reddened in the face from shyness.
“Thank you.” She managed to say.
“So, can we?” He asked, searching for her eyes and she nodded her head in the positive looking away from him.
He drove into a boutique where both male and female wears were being sold and she turned to look at him as he searched for a parking lot then quickly looked away before he could notice her.
“Let’s do a little shopping here before going to the #Chillings #Palace where I can seat with my baby, look into her eyes and then have some sweet talks with her.” He said flirtatiously and she felt like the earth should open its mouth and swallow her from his alluring eyes. She just found herself nodding her head and masticating.

“Gosh! My wife is shy o.” He said teasingly and gave her a mild pinch on the cheek before opening the car door.
“#THE #DARLINGS” Sade read the boutique name out silently to herself when she climbed down from the car, and adjusted her knee length gown they walked into the exotic interiors of the boutique.
“Welcome to #THE #DARLINGS . Making couples look gorgeous together is our number one priority. Our wears here comes with special attractive and bonding packages which enhances couples conducive atmosphere to bond better. Once again, you are welcome.” One of the sales representatives said recitatively smiling from ear to ear at Kehinde.
“Thank you.” Kehinde replied with a smile, then continued as he drew Sade to himself.
“My wife and I needs beautiful uniform wears…” He was still talking when the sales representative’s smile reduced on seeing how he held Sade.

“Oh! This way please.” She said on hearing the handsome young man she had started crushing on at first glance say ‘my wife’, and straight away she took the lead while they followed her behind.
“Hunters everywhere.” Sade said under her breathe looking at the girl twisting her waist before them in the name of leading them to the uniform wears section of the boutique.
Kehinde, paused on seeing a givenchy handbag and called Sade’s attention to it.
“Sweetheart, you will like that.” He said pointing towards the beautiful handbag and she looked from the bag and back at him.

“I already have enough handbags brother Kehinde, we bought three different handbags during the traditional marriage plus other ones I have…” Sade replied objectively.
“Yeah, you can have more. I like good handbags for women.” He said, pulled her by the hand and began to walk towards the stock.
“It’s too expensive.” The sales representative who had stopped when she looked behind and found out that they were not following her heard Sade’s voice.
“This girl self, you are even lucky to have a man who is ready to buy for you a givenchy handbag that’s why you are shouting it’s too expensive. If I’m in your shoe,na sharp sharp I go pick am.” She was murmuring to herself a little distance from them.

Kehinde ended up convincing Sade for them to pick the handbag and she kept on turning at intervals to look at him as if he was strange as they were walking up to the uniform wears section.

“Are you alright?” Kehinde asked her when he noticed how she looked at him.
“You are too good to be real” she found herself saying before realizing that she didn’t plan saying them out.
He smiled on seeing how embarrassed she felt for making that statement but before he could reply her ,they arrived at the uniform wears section….

TECHNICAL VIRGIN. Episode 56

“Here we are,” the sales representative announced and he was halted from replying her.
“Over here we have Nigerian native wears for couples, beautiful corporate wears, Italian wears for couples, Gucci…” She was talking and pointing at different stocks as if she was singing when Kehinde interrupted her.

“Uhm… It’s alright. My wife knows what will be good on us, allow her sort out wears for us.” he deliberately spoke up seeing that Sade was not comfortable with the girl’s presence.

“Alright sir.” The girl replied politely and stepped back.
“Sweetheart, please choose wears for us.” He turned and faced Sade romantically and she blushed seeing how the sales girl stared at them helplessly with her mouth opened agape.
“Alright.” She replied without looking into his eyes and started selecting distinctive outfits while he followed her side by side and the sales girl collecting the stocks as she selected them.
“We’ve gotten enough .” Sade told him but he wasn’t satisfied with the number of clothes and shoes she selected.
“Let’s get more babe.” He replied and placed his hands on her shoulder.
“No! Let’s go,their stocks are too expensive.” Sade protested.
“Yes ma.” He said and off they left for the cost desk where he paid for the stocks and they left for the Chilling Palace.

“Thanks for the wears.” Sade said with a smile as they took their seats in the first class private compartment of the eatery.
“I’m all yours.” He replied looking into her eyes.
“This place is beautiful.” She said and fed her eyes with the beautiful interior décor.
“Yeah.” He replied and touched her to stop looking at the flowers and focus on him.
“Stop looking at the flowers, just be looking at me.” He said laughing and she gave him one of the smiling styles she had practiced in her room before coming out to meet him.

“Wow!” He exclaimed and was about complimenting on her smile when a waiter came to take their orders and he collected the food menu, placed it before her and asked her to thick what they would eat. She withdrew back and told him to choose for them and he did then returned the menu back to the waiter who left immediately to get the orders.
“Give me your hand,” Kehinde said leaning over the table with his right hand stretched out to receive hers and her body froze as powerful emotions surged through her spines. Her head suddenly became too heavy down for her neck to carry and she lowered it then gradually placed her chilled hand into his and he held her hands passionately for few seconds before speaking up.

“I’m sorry for shouting at you.” He said with a sincere show of remorsefulness, then the waiter came up with the orders in a large tray pan in his hand. Kehinde paused when he saw that her attention was drawn to the waiter’s presence, then signalled him to drop and leave and he got the message. He gently squeezed her hand which was still in his in order to call her attention back to himself and she stole a look at him but before she could look away, her eyes caught his eyes looking at her. Her eyes fell on his pink lips and she found herself fantasizing on the pink lips in her heart and couldn’t look away from it as it moved sweetly .

“I want you to know that you have already won this heart of mine and you can never share me with any other woman. Please, help my fragile heart to love you more by trusting me as your husband. I don’t have a strong heart, so I try as much as possible to avoid troubles especially from people I care about. I want us to enjoy this marriage together, please help me to live longer to enjoy you and our children…” Kehinde continued pleadingly with passion in his eyes and voice.

The next day, Jumoke arrived the church mummy’s house exactly the time they scheduled to meet. The church mummy observed that she had shaped down considerably and wasn’t looking her usual self even though she was trying hard to maintain a lively facial expression. With the milk of motherly kindness, she did everything possible to show her extra care and love and Jumoke couldn’t understand the reason for the unusual kindness.
After about two hours of entertaining her, she asked her to spend the night over but she politely refused using her work as an excuse.
“I would be going to work tomorrow morning ma. Mummy don’t worry, maybe one of these weekends, I will come around and spend the night.” She replied.
“Alright my dear, just that I wanted us to discuss something very important to me.” The church mummy chipped in cunningly in order to arouse her interest.

“Mummy, let’s talk about it then, or will it take much time?” She said with concern in her eyes. And the church mummy suddenly switched in a sad countenance.
“Jumoke, it’s about you and Kehinde.” She said with a worried voice and Jumoke’s heart flew into her mouth,then her head went down low in shame.
“He showed me the text messages you sent to him and have also told me everything.” The church mummy began and her heart beat increased.
“Jumoke, that first text was too harsh to come from a Christian lady like you. You know you have a high prophetic grace and whatever you say can easily come to pass…” The church mummy was still talking when Jumoke broke down in tears,crying uncontrollably.
“Mummy, it’s so painful!” She cried out with her head down.
” My baby, I understand how you feel. Kehinde is very sorry; he didn’t plan leaving you,God made it clear to him that you were not meant to be his wife and his leaving you is to your own advantage. Who knows, maybe the purpose of your life is greater than he can handle and God already have a better person who is worthy and capable enough to carry you in life. ” the church mummy said,breathed down then continued.

“Jumoke, don’t tell me you haven’t been putting all my teachings to practice. I’ve been preaching it in all the youth programs some of which you were present that a single person should never force his/herself into a man’s life, even if the person is an ex, if that lover or ex is no longer interested in the relationship; move on with your life. Don’t try to make it work out by all means, you will end up being the person who would suffer hurt in that relationship because his/her heart is no longer with you…” The church mummy continued as if she was preaching to her.
“Mummy, I’m finding it difficult to Kenny go off my heart. I’ve tried to do so but can’t, don’t know what to do anymore. I’m angry with him yet I still love him deeply in my heart..” She explained in tears.

“I don’t think you love him, because if you do, you wouldn’t have sent him that that detrimental text. You almost destroyed his marriage Jumoke.” The church mummy said, sounding serious.
“I love him mummy, the text was sent out of anger.” Jumoke explained.
“If you love him, then forgive him and release him from your heart to marry the will of God for his life and enjoy his marriage.” The church mummy said with a commanding tone, but calmed her temper seeing that the young girl was in pain,placed her hand on Jumoke’s shoulder in a caring manner then continued with a soft tone.
“You are finding it difficult because you have not yet made up your mind and you can never find love outside there until you release Kehinde from your heart. I told you sometimes ago under the spirit of prophecy that God is bringing your rightful husband from afar. Jumoke you will miss your rightful man if you don’t let go of Kenny . The perfect will of God for your life may come around and you would not give him the chance because your heart is still with Kehinde. You are harming yourself Jumoke..” The church mummy spoke up passionately and the crying Jumoke ran into her arms, soaked in her own tears.

“Please, pray for me. I want to let go…” She cried and the church mummy hugged her tightly and pat her back gently and allowed her to have a good cry of relief. After about twenty minutes, the church mummy held hands with her and prayed fervently with her then told her to renounce her words in the text she sent to Kehinde in her presence which she did willingly from the depth of her heart.
“Thank you so much mummy, feel so relieved in my heart.” She thanked the church mummy over and over again. Just when she was about leaving, the Pastor came back with an ebony dark young man.
“Guess who we have here!” The Pastor announced on entering the parlor and the church mummy gave an exciting scream on seeing the young man.

“Mummy, don’t even smile with me. I heard you were in Dallas three weeks ago but you didn’t check on me.” The young man said feigning annoyance.
“Ah! Mike, am sorry. It was daddy o.” The church mummy said laughing.
“I planned calling you, but he was busy rushing me to come back to Nigeria, and I had to shorten the days I planned staying…” She explained jokingly.

Jumoke stood back at a spot watching the handsome young man and beaming with smiles helplessly. Mike turned from the church mummy to look at the lady who was not talking and their eyes clicked and remained that way for the next few seconds…

THE TECHNICAL VIRGIN
Episode 57

The church mummy and her husband exchanged glances when they noticed the chemical reaction between the two, then the Pastor cleared his throat in a very embarrassing manner which knocked them back to the consciousness that they were with people.
“Jumoke, how are you?” The Pastor asked as Mike made to take a seat.

“Good evening sir. I’m fine sir.” She went on her knees in greeting,then continued.
“I’m sorry daddy, you were talking when you entered and I thought it wise to wait till you are done before greeting.” She explained still kneeling down and the young man kept looking at her with the corner of his eyes not knowing that the church mummy was watching him.
“Ah! Come’on, stand to your feet. It’s nothing.” The Pastor said hurriedly with his hand demonstrating a rising action.
“Ese daddy, thank you sir.” She said and stood up to her feet,then continued.
“I want to be on my way now.” She announced.
“That’s alright. I hope mummy took good care of you?” The Pastor asked jokingly and she smiled.
“Very well sir.” She replied smiling beautifully in such a way that got Mike smiling unknowingly right where he was sitting.
“My baby, do take care of your self.” The church mummy said cheerfully as she opened the door to leave and she responded before leaving.

“Mike, why were you looking at her like that?” The church mummy jokingly asked immediately the door closed behind her.
“Was I looking at her?” The embarrassed Mike asked and the Pastor bursted into a loud laugh.
“It was so glaring,you can’t deny that.” The church mummy pushed further.
“This woman, leave my son alone jor, is looking now a sin?” The Pastor intervened seeing that Mike was feeling embarrassed.
“I didn’t even realize I was looking at her, but to be sincere with you, I felt my soul clung to hers in just a short while. I don’t really understand, but I think i..” He paused when he saw how the couple were looking at him.
“You think you are what? Finish your statement my friend.” The church mummy fired at him jokingly.
“I don’t like the way you two were looking at me. I mean, what’s wrong with loving a beautiful sister? Or is she married already?” Mike spoke up with a deep American intonation, smiling and trying to act serious at the same time.

“Nothing is wrong with loving a beautiful sister my son. And she is not married either.” The Pastor answered laughing.
“Wow!” He exclaimed in atypical American crazy life.
“I’ve found my wife then. You know what momma, I actually was hoping to discuss marriage stuff with you once I arrive Nigeria, but look how God’s done it. So, tell me more about her. Who’s she?” The excited Mike said and they both watched him laughing.
“Forget about her let’s talk about something else. How is the ministry over there?” The church mummy who didn’t want to take him serious said casually, waving his words aside.
“I should forget about my marriage and talk about ministry? What do you call ministry?” He asked with all seriousness.
“Mean!” He bewailed then continued.
“My marriage is part of my ministry, or would you prefer i bring home a white lady?” He said and the couple exchanged glances again seeing how serious he was.
“Not at all.” The church mummy cut in,then continued.
“I thought you were not serious, because we have been begging you all these years to get married but you refused. Remember how you used to tell me particularly that you want to be like apostle Paul who did not marry, so that you can serve God without distraction…” The church mummy explained and Mike smiled.
“Well, that’s in the past. God wants me to get married, He told me that my wife would be instrumental to the growth of my ministry and that of my life. He also told me you have a part to play in linking me to my wife. I don’t know how you intends doing that but I don’t think what I felt for this lady that just left here few ago is ordinary…” Mike explained carefully to the surprise of the church mummy and the Pastor.

“That’s good to hear Mike.” The Pastor cut in excitedly.
“I’m so happy to hear this coming from you. Ah! Pastor Mike talking about marriage?” The church mummy stood up with her hands on her chest staring at him.
“You two should stop looking at me that way please!.” Mike covered his face in embarrassment.

A text message entered Kehinde’s phone late in the night and he couldn’t contain his joy when he saw it was from Jumoke.

“Good evening Oma oba. How are you
and the preparation for your wedding?
There’s a point in life when one has
no choice than to let go of what he/she
cherish so much in order to make way
for better things. I guess am at that very
point in my life right now.
Kenny, I don’t know whether I should say,
‘I forgive you’ or ‘I release you’. But from
the depth of my heart, I let go of all my
anger and grievances against you.
I’m sorry for the horrible text messages
I sent to you, I sent them out but I have
renounced them already.
Please, I want you to be a brother which I
never had to me. Also, pray for me to find
love again.
From Jumoke Alade. ”
The text message read and he couldn’t but dial her number immediately.
“Jumo, thank you so much.” He said over the phone immediately she picked the call.
“I’m sorry for all the hurts I caused you, I’ve been praying for you and I assure you under God that you will find better love than I could have ever offered you in this life soon. Jumo, you are a nice girl, I know God will settle you..” Kehinde kept pouring out his heart and they both did not know when tears began to drop from their eyes.

“Thank you.” Were the only word she could reply him amidst tears.
“I will call you tomorrow.” Kehinde said calmly when he noticed she was also crying and the call ended abruptly.
He slumped on his bed, looked intently into the space for some minutes as the events of the past years played itself before him and he lifted up his two hands and said.
“Thank you my Ebeneezer, thus far you have brought me. So Lord, help me live the remaining years of my life to your glory.” He prayed in tears and forwarded the text message to Sade…


TECHNICAL VIRGIN. Episode 58

A week later, Sade and Kehinde had a glamorous wedding which got everyone talking both in the city and in the village as the oba and his queen gifted Sade a brand new car for being instrumental to the healing of the queen and as a way of showing her that she is very much welcome into the royal family.
Receiving the car keys from Kehinde’s elder sister who presented the car gift on behalf of the royal family, Sade couldn’t hold back the tears gushing out of her eyes.

“I’m the first woman from my lineage to own a car.” She said to herself as she received the car keys and cried into Kehinde’s arms while the mammoth crowd seated present in the five thousand seaters capacity reception hall watched in admiration as Kehinde pat her back gently smiling handsomely.

“Hmm..this God is somehow o. I remember how we gossipped this Sade of girl back when she got pregnant outside wedlock, but look how God have honoured her in the same city she was once disgraced simply because she returned back to God in total repentance. I’m beginning to give my life a second thought seriously, all these secret immoral lives we are living is no longer making sense to me at all. Her life is really worthy of emulation to me o..” A girl who was once in the same choir department with Sade told her friend while the reception was ongoing with them watching from the back where they were seated.
“That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking too. Sometimes, I get tired of life itself. See, after this her wedding; am going to get close to her and learn from her. I even heard she would be releasing her music album next month.” Her friend replied and they both reached an agreement to get close to her.

Sade’s aged parents sat at the high table clothed in sewn quality Yoruba native wear popularly known as Asoke and their joy could not be quantified watching the glory surrounding the same daughter whom they had once given up on.

Doctor Iyk was allover Jumoke through out the wedding.
“Guy, you didn’t tell me Jumoke has been in this town.” Iyk couldn’t wait till after the wedding before whispering into Kehinde’s ear.
“So?” Kehinde replied suspiciously.
“Not what your thinking guy, you know I used to like her back then even before you guys started dating. Witnessing this your wedding today, I don’t even know how am feeling inside my heart. I desperately need a wife too,after all am not getting younger..” Doctor Iyk explained and kehinde kept looking intently into his eyes.
“Guy you are not talking.” Iyk said with a surprise look and Kehinde swallowed hard before replying him.
“So, are you already considering her for marriage?” Kehinde asked, wearing a serious look.

“Yeah, you and I know Jumoke is a nice girl. Had I know you guys would not end up together, I wouldn’t have gotten into that…” He was still talking and Kehinde cut in.
“It’s alright, but you still need to pray about it. I don’t want that girl to experience any hurt in relationship again and at the same time, I don’t want you to make another mistake in marriage.” Kehinde explained carefully and Iyk nodded his head with understanding.

“Guy, I beg shift make I concentrate on my wife. It’s my day!” Kehinde said jokingly then gave him a mild push and they both bursted into a silent laugh and he went back straight to where Jumoke was seated in the reception hall.
“Jumo dear, sorry I went out to attend to something.” He said as he sat down close to her and she nodded her head.
“Chai! It’s really been a long time o. I remember those days on the campus that you will see me coming to you and you will start running,” he said jokingly and they both started laughing.
“But come to think about it, why were you so much afraid of me then?” Iyk asked smiling.
“Nothing, I heard you were a cultist and secondly, I always see you with different bad girls.” Jumoke explained calmly.
“Well, I was into women then but definitely not a cultist.” Iyk said regrettably then continued.

“Thank God for His saving grace, am now born again.” He said with a dry smile and she turned to look at him properly. “Congratulations Iyk. I’m also born again and sincerely speaking, it’s been awesome knowing God.” She said and from there they went on sharing salvation experiences and other things,and he didn’t make the mistake of forgetting to collect her number.

The wedding reception came to an end at some minutes past 5pm, people who were in attendance left with different kinds of wedding gifts and Iyk drove the latest couple to the hotel booked for their honeymoon. When they checked into the hotel, Iyk gave Kehinde a thumb up and he got the message as they both started laughing but Sade didn’t understand why the two friends were laughing.
“Spoilt Igbo boy, come and start going let me enjoy my wife.” Kehinde said and they exchanged handshakes before he finally left smiling naughty.

“And, can I get a full romantic hug from my bride?” Kehinde said sweetly when he returned from locking up the door. He was pulling off his suit jacket and walking up to Sade who suddenly started arranging things that were not in any way scattered.
“Sweetheart, leave those things first. There’s nothing there to arrange.” He said and tingled her wait from the back and she jumped up in response to the titillating sensation wearing a feigned frown on her face.
“Brother Kehinde stop please.” She said smiling and frowning at the same time.
“Stop what? I want the first romantic hug from my bride please.” Kehinde said teasingly with his arms opened wide to receive her but she turned around again,bent down and began to search for what was not missing.
“What are you looking for? Let me help you.” The disappointed but never relenting Kehinde said squatting down close to her.
“Nothing, I want to take my bath.” She said and gently released her hand from from his hand trying as much as possible to avoid his emotion filled eyes.
“That’s better, we would bath together.” He said and began to pull off everything on him. She stole a look at him as he made to pull his boxer then looked away quickly.
“We are not bathing together please,I want to bath alone.” She said then he paused and stared at her in surprise…

Brother Kehinde, congratulations
Honeymoon is worth waiting for…see the way I’m smiling here.
