Judas in the church
Mrs and Mrs Odogun in their car home were laughing so hard. Mrs Odogun could not hold back the tears that followed. Odogun had to ask his wife. ”Is it so funny”? ”Yes o,” it is funny, it is very funny, brother Chris that is not even able to buy a pair of good trousers for himself. Did you even see the one he was wearing today?”
”Honey I saw it to, pastor King should just say he pities him and that is why he chose him as the new assistant pastor, if not who is brother Chris? Is it not Chris? Chris when never fit baff and chop?” ”My husband I tire o, you see the way he walked up to the alter, and started talking, am sure that Chris will even have small mouth odour, or is it poverty that still scattered his mouth like that? She starts laughing again.
”No no no dear, he does not have mouth odour, I’ve spoken with him at close range before.” Odogun answered. His wife was shocked, ” you mean am? You mean you spoke with that Chris in close range? What could you be possibly discussing with him?” ” Nothing o dear, he just came to borrow two thousand naira from me that’s all” she burst out laughing again. ”And did you give him”? She asked! ”Give him what? I told him in don’t have, that day the money with me was the one I was using to go and buy you ice cream and Burger, then also to buy some suya. So I told him I didnt have”.
”Ah, but pastor King do this one sha, in the full church. He couldn’t select a handsome and clean guy that knows how to baff, he went to chose that Chris. Did you see the way he was rolling on the ground with that his condemned white shirt? Am sure that shirt is what he will still wear tomorrow to church.” Mrs Odogun lamented. Odogun smiled before answering. ”He get luck sha, the church will now take care of his needs. His rent, his food, his clothes and even pay him a food salary.”. ”Yes o, he is one lucky guy. The wife replied before she quickly added.
”Honey, did you see deacon Duncan’s face? When they called Chris as the new pastor. He won die o, I think he was eyeing the position” are you serious? Odogwu asked, yes o my dear, his face was like shit. Odogwu could not hold back his laughter as he kept driving on, ”But I saw him greeting and congratulating Chris”.
”I saw him too dear, but I can tell you that, that congratulation nor come from he mind. He just did it for doing sake. You need to see the way he and deacon Igho were carrying their frustration to that his 1960 car”, she burst into laughter again. Even the car was frustrated by their frustration that it refused to start, he had to march it hard before the car made that its cassava engine noise griiiin, griiinnn, hahaha hahaha” she continued her laughing.
Odogun laughed behind his wife. And then he said. ”Pastor King eh, he has this soft spot for Chris sha, that is why he made him his assistant. And the both of them are birds of the same feather, if not for church that has polished King, dont you know he would be worse than Chris?” Its true my dear, Mrs odogun replied, ”with all the money and car and care church gives to him he still doesn’t know how to dress. See the expensive trouser he wore today and the thing still didnt look good on him. Did you notice that the trouser bent to one direction?” Oh my wife odogun answered you saw it too, he starts laughing. ”I even took my time to access the belt, he misplaced the pin so the pin was pointing upwards like, I salute to Jesus”. They burst into laughter again
”If he had chosen deacon Wealth now ehn, we will know we has a pastor”.
Duncan immediately stopped the car. ”What do you mean by that? How can they chose Deacon wealth when I am here, is he more handsome than I am or does he dress more than I am? That one that does not even shave his moustache well. Did you notice tooth paste on his moustache?
Mrs Odogun immediately apologized, no my husband its not like that, I didnt know all the members of the church would be considered, I was thinking they would chose only from the deacons fold. Of course you are more handsome than that deacon. And you have more swag, you are more than qualified for the position. Pastor king sef.
Odogun started the car again and they continues their gossips analyzing every single member that came to church and the clothes they wore that day.
