DIARY OF A PASTOR’S WIFE

I stared at my reflection in the mirror, my
stomach was beginning to protrude, I rubbed
my hands on it, and felt a tiny kick, there was
deep joy in my heart, the one I had never felt
before.

DIARY OF A PASTOR’S WIFE (EPISODE 12)

The news about David’s separation from
Ifeoma spread like a wildfire.
The night was still young, and I had just
returned with a new Sim card. I wanted to change my life, change my world and rebrand
it for the holy spirit to come dwell with us
forever.

DIARY OF A PASTOR’S WIFE

By this time, I had made up my mind to sign
the divorce papers and move to America with
the kids.

My stomach was protruding, and I didn’t want
anyone to see me, especially the church
members of Hills ministries.

“I thought you said divorce is a sin?” Lizzy
asked shrilly, looking aghast.
“I have gotten what I wanted.”

“Don’t say these things Ekom, You prayed for
this moment, you fasted, wept to God. And
now it is finally here, why do you want to just
let it go all of a sudden?”

“let me be. Let’s not talk about this please. ” I
said. Lizzy felt panic at the terse tone and
clipped answers.

“Have you started processing visa for the kids
for your trip?”
“Not a trip, I am relocating Lizzy. I am selling
off this house.”

“What? Ekom how can you do a thing like
that?”
“I had made up my mind Before I brought this
conversation up, I had made up my mind on
selling the house, and relocating. nothing can
change that.”

Lizzy breathe an audible sigh of relieve and
stood to leave as I heard the door bell ring.
“Are you expecting someone?” Lizzy asked.
“No, my sister went back to Ibadan yesterday.”
Teye ran from inside to the door.

“mummy someone is at the door.” my heart
went down as I watched her place the stool by
the door and climbed on it to reach the bolt.
“Aunty ifeoma!” she screamed. She walked in,
looking pale and weak.

I stared at her in complete and utter disbelief.
“What are you doing in my house?”
She blanches her face, losing all it colors, and
then snaps her gaze to Lizzy, and then Teye,
who was already staring at her in amazement.

Tears poured down her face in an
uncontrollable manner.
“What is this? leave my house this minute, I
don’t like this drama.” A scream erupts my
throat.

She knelt down immediately and tried to hold my feet, but I stepped backward.
Lizzy and Teye were staring at me, looks of
pure shock and amazement were plastered on
their faces.

When I looked at her eyes, I saw pain and
regret. I saw the life of a girl who was tired of
living.
