Judas In The Church
Meanwhile in the hospital, Happiness encouraged Gift to speak up but she felt adamant and is only interested in protecting Chuks.
Gift: I dont want to hurt MD. He loves me and he promised to settle with me, this pregnancy was just a mistake and I dont want to destroy his ministry with this. He loves God and this will destroy him. How can I say the truth now.
Happiness: just look at you, see the way you are defending someone that you know nothing about.
Gift: what do you mean by that. I know him very well.
Happiness: The pregnancy was a mistake, the staphylococcus was it a mistake too?
Gift: What? Sta what?
Happiness: Be there asking me like you dont know what I’m talking about. Tell me you didnt experience itching after your sex escapade with him, and tell me you didnt go for treatment , infection treatment.
Gift puts her head down in shame.
Gift: I did, (she answers slowly) but how did you know (she asked raising her head) I tried to make sure nobody sees me, so how did you know? Besides I dont think its his fault. Maybe I got it through toilet or something.
Happiness: Dont be so stupid. I can’t believe you are so dumb. Lemme just spill the beans to you. Your so called holy righteous Chuks also gave me Staphylococcus, thank God its not HIV. twice I went to treat for that infection and as I sit here with you I am pregnant for him.
Gift: what? No no, I dont believe you, you are just saying this so that I will speak the truth. I dont believe you.
Happiness: see you, and what is my own if you lie or not. If you like you believe me, if you like you dont, that’s your business. Where do you think I was coming from when I saw you on the road crying. Lemme tell you that I was coming from your self righteous MD’s house. Where I went to inform him I was pregnant. And he bluntly denied me. He denied me. After sleeping with me on two different occasions. Well I dont have anything to say to him now. But I know God will surely expose him.
Gift was crying heavily by now.
Gift: sister Happy please tell me its not true, please because I am ready to endure the shame alone just to save his face.
Happiness: you are still there thinking of how to save his face. After you almost died. Well be there. Am glad you are awake I am going home now. In the evening I will go see our pastor and I will tell them everything because one thing I am very sure of is that I am not going to abort my baby.
Gift: so you will confess? Won’t you be ashamed?
Happiness: its better to be ashamed than risk my life. Not everything I’ve seen you go through. I can’t do that.
Gift: what if he keeps denying you.
Happiness: Let him deny. God will stand by me because He knows the truth. I will beg him for mercy and I will also beg my family for mercy.they will be disappointed but I know they will forgive me and accept us. (She said rubbing her stomach, Gift began to cry)
Gift: if only I knew, if only I am as strong as you are. What if I had died during this abortion I would have gone to hell.
Happiness: stop crying. The deed is done already. You have to move on. You have to ask God for mercy and move on. As for me I’d be with our pastors by 5pm. Its time to come out clean.
