The very first time he cheated on his wife
He met the girl at a market
She was a tailor
His office needed some curtain materials and he was the one who was sent to the market to get the materials because the facility manager was on leave and he was the one standing in for the
facility manager
As soon as he picked the materials he deemed appropriate, the curtain sellers told him they had tailors who could cut the materials and sew the curtains for him
He told them to get one of the tailors
The curtain seller made a phone call
A few minutes later, the
lady arrived
He paid for the material and moved with the materials to the shop of the lady
While the lady sewed the curtains they got talking
Just a chat here and a chat there
They somehow exchanged numbers
By the time the lady was done, they had become friends of a sort
The lady
was not in a relationship
He discovered that in the course of their chit chat
She was twenty-six and she was willing
When he got home later that night, he let it slip while catching up with his wife that he met a girl
Perhaps there was a pitch in his voice or a tone he used when
he talked about the lady that alarmed his wife
His wife turned to him and said "Be careful, please, keep away from that girl"
He laughed and quickly masked his intention with a dismissal
"Oh, I am not going to the market anymore...
This was a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence!"
His wife shrugged and left it be
He got to the office, the lady sent him a message saying Thank you for yesterday
He knew she was poking the bear to see if anything will come out of it
Their previous discussion was bordering on
"I like you and I want to do you"
It was a light
discussion but that was basically the summary
He replied warmly and told her he would come to the market later that day to take her to lunch
After making the commitment, he began to ruminate upon the possibilities
He had noticed a hotel close to the market but the lady might
consider that too close
He thought about it over and over again
He had been married for six years and he had two children
He had never strayed or cheated before but that was basically because the opportunity never presented itself
Sex with his wife was very good but it had fallen
into a boring pattern
The thought of sleeping with someone else was already exciting and moving his body parts
He had enough money to get it done
He didn't see any reason he should pass up the opportunity
After about two hours, he got a call that the product they were waiting for
at Mushin was ready
The driver had gone out with one of their staff members
He quickly grabbed his car keys and told the receptionist to tell whoever asked that he had gone to get the goods
His reaction was instinctive
It was the opening he was hoping for
The opportunity to make
good his promise to the lady
As soon as he drove out of the office premises, he called the lady and asked her to wait for him on the main road as he didn't want to drive into the market so as to avoid traffic
The lady said okay
Twenty minutes later, he picked her up
When they
got to Mushin, he was told that he had to wait an hour or two while the goods for his office was sorted out
It was exactly as he anticipated
He took the lady to the nearest hotel under the pretense of waiting for the supply to be sorted out
When they got to the hotel, they went
to the restaurant
As soon as they made their orders, he told the lady he would prefer that they got a room and spend the time in private
He told her the hotel was close to the depot and he wouldn't want tongues to start wagging because he was technically still at work
The lady
said okay
They got a room, the orders arrived and he made his move
They kissed and talked and kissed again
After about an hour, the lady went to the restroom to ease herself
When she emerged, she was technically naked
He took that as his cue
He put his canoe in the river and he
began to row ferociously
The first thing he noticed was his paddles
They seem to be firmer and to cut deeper into the water as the canoe responded to the current of the river
Because they were still a bit unfamiliar with each other, the first few thrusts was somehow but rowing a
boat is quite mechanical and really needs no feeling
In all they spent four hours in that hotel room
After every hour, the intercom would buzz reminding them that their short rest time was up and he would book another hour
They were both spent by the time he got his canoe to the
other side the third or fourth time
He called the depot
His supply was ready
He left her in the hotel to freshen up and drove to the depot to pick up the supply
He drove back to the hotel to pick her up and they drove back to the market
He dropped her off and got to the office
around 4pm
He expected some sort of query or trouble because of the time he spent away from his desk
Somehow, it went unnoticed
His boss was still out and the other staff members were caught in traffic on the airport road
He sat at his desk reliving his canoe rowing prowess
felt so light-headed
He closed at six pm and found his way home
When he got home he took a long shower and dumped his clothes in the washing machine
His wife had a James Bond nose and a suspicious nature
He didn't want to answer questions
His wife got home at about 8pm
They saw
a movie and put the children to bed
Then they began to prepare the canoe for another lunch into the deep
He noticed that his paddles were quite urgent, throbbing, rearing to go unlike before when they would gat a slow start due to familiarity
He told himself, "Wow, it seemed what
I did was quite healthy for our marriage"
The launch was very good too
The river was happy and so was the canoe
He got to the office the next day at about 9am
The receptionist told him he had a guest at about 11 AM
He went to the reception to check who it was
He saw the tailor
He immediately walked her down the stairs towards the main gate
"What are you doing here?"
"How do you know this place" He asked
She said she saw his details and that of the company on his ID card the previous day and decided to check him out
He told her she should have
called ahead
She told him it was just a familiarity visit, she meant no harm
He thanked her and told her to wait for his call
She said "I forgot to inform you yesterday that I am a priestess where I came from and once you sleep with me you cannot be intimate with another woman
for at least seven days
If you sleep with another woman she could be sick and she might die
I assumed you know this by the bead on my left hand
He shook his head
He really didn't understand what she was saying
He just wanted her to leave his office before somebody started asking
At about 2 PM, he got a call that his wife had fainted at work and had been rushed to the hospital
When he got to the hospital, he was told that his wife was short of blood
In fact, he found her being transfused when he got to the hospital
He called his wife's mother
He called his younger sister too
He needed someone at home to take delivery of the children when the school bus brings them home
He rushed to the bank and emptied his bank account
The hospital had given him a list of drugs to buy
He ran around till 10 pm
When he got home, his
phone rang
It was the tailor lady
He ignored her call totally
He was not in the mood to talk to her plus he didn't have any money to spend on her entertainment
When he got to the hospital the next day, his wife looked worse
The doctor said they had to transfer to another hospital
because she was not responding to treatment
The ambulance picked her up at noon, he drove in his own car
They were transferred to the general hospital, Gbagada
When they got to the hospital, his direct boss came to the hospital to check up on them
One look at his wife, his direct
boss said "This is not ordinary! How can somebody be sick for only two days and look this way?"
It was shocking, really!
His wife looked like life was being drained out of her by extra-mundane forces
His boss told him to call the brother in Jeans and T-shirt
He did so immediately
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt asked him why he was pretending to care when he was the one afflicting his wife
He denied afflicting his wife
He told the brother in Jeans and T-shirt that he didn't do anything to hurt or jeopardize his wife's health in any way
They met the next
day at the hospital
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt prayed for his wife and asked the doctors to stop all treatment for some time until they know what exactly was wrong with her
A saline line was the only thing set up for her
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt took him aside and
asked him if he was dating anybody apart from his wife
He confessed
He said he didn't know it had anything to do with his wife's health challenge
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt told him to go and bring the lady
Two hours later he arrived with her
When the brother in Jeans and
T-shirt saw her, he held her left hand and smiled
She became uncomfortable
She said "Sorry sir, I don't feel comfortable when my bead is touched. I am a shrine priestess"
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt said "Not anymore"
Your status as a priestess has been revoked
She started
She found it funny that someone that is not from her village or tribe was talking to her like he knew who she was
The Brother in Jeans & T-shirt told him he was sone with her
He took her back to her shop
By the time he returned to the office, his wife was looking better
The doctors said she was merely exhausted and was misdiagnosed by the previous clinic where she was referred from
There was no evidence of a shortage of blood or anything serious
His wife was placed on a bed rest
She recovered within three days and was discharged
One month later
Priestess C (Her initials) arrived at the office of the brother in Jeans and T-shirt in tears
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt had received a call earlier from her "boyfriend" that she had been calling persistently and he didn't know what to do
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt
told him to bring her
When she arrived, she came with a black bag in which there was a white wrapper and ten cowries
She said it was sent to her by her mother
She had been expelled from their order of priestesses
She didn't know what she did wrong and there was no explanation
again she had started having nightmares and could barely sleep all night
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt told her she needed to be expelled so that she can fulfill her destiny
He led her to Christ and got her filled with the Holy Spirit
She became his student and an evangelist
PS: Cheating is very costly
It costs so much that many do not finish paying for it in one lifetime
I have so much to say and so little space
Learn to be prayerful and watchful as couples
There is no easy lay
There is cause and there is consequences
In Christ, we rule and reign

His business ran into some trouble
He ran to her mother for help
Her mother did everything in her power to help him survive that lean season

Her mother told him what she wanted
"I want you to marry my daughter and set her up as you did your other

The day started on a very poor note
Perhaps it was because he slept on the anger of the previous day
He got home that day and met a note on the table informing him that his wife had left for her parent's house for the sixth time in seven days because her father was mildly ill
It had become the norm since they got married
He initially felt it was cool to be married to a lady with such a strong family bond
As time went on he realized a strong family bond tend to skew people's thinking in a certain way...
The outsider was always the enemy, the gaijin
Whenever they had an issue, his parents in law will take their daughter's side
When they had their first child, their daughter refused to take immunization for the baby because she couldn't bear anybody poking her daughter with an injection
It was a silly reason and he objected

An Unshakable Kingdom Hebrews 12:
(Exodus 20:18–21; Deut 5:22–33)

18For you have not come to a mountain that can be touched and thatg is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom, and storm; 19to a trumpet blast or to a voice that made its hearers beg that no further word be spoken
20For they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned.”h 21The sight was so terrifying that even Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”i

22Instead, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly
Jerusalem. You have come to myriads of angels 23in joyful assembly, to the congregation of the firstborn, enrolled in heaven. You have come to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood

He fell in love with another woman
He was married at the same time
He didn't really have an excuse for whatever he felt
There are many things he could point to as his excuse
Many things he could itemize as the reason
The bottom line was his feelings, his thoughts and his desire
they just seemed to have found solace with someone else
Someone with a calming and assuring spirit
Someone less volatile
Someone less unwise
There was a time he loved his wife too
Perhaps he still loves her a little
but the affection had waned terribly
His wife was in his opinion
not worthy of all the attention and the love he expended on her from day one
All she wanted was a ring
He didn't see that from the beginning but it became obvious after they got married
She was very warm and accommodating while they were courting but became cold and distant right

It was not easy being the son of a pastor
The standard was set to the high heavens
It was as if the purpose of his life was to please his parents
It wasn't as if his parents had the power to force him to follow their will as such
He was just not a rebel by nature
He was a good
His older brother started misbehaving from the age of ten
He would talk back to their mother whenever he was asked to do anything
He would ask questions and if the answers were not satisfactory, he would storm off into his room and slam the door
His parents couldn't really do
anything to control his older brother
He practically rendered them powerless by not caring about anything
If you don't give him food, he will stay hungry until everybody was asleep and then he would sneak out of his room and eat anything he could find in the fridge
If the fridge

He met her on his first day on the job
His employer had insisted that all the staff members must undergo two weeks training before resumption
It was a new Television station
The training started on a Monday morning
She walked into the hall at about midday
She was wearing a skirt
so short that all the men in the room practically paused whatever they were doing at her entrance
He was the only one seating on a desk close to the rear exit
She promptly walked up to him and sat right next to him
The skirt was a distraction
As much as he tried to keep his face
on the marker board
He found his eyes darting to the long spotless legs over and over again
She noticed his dilemma and decided to help out by removing her handbag from the desk and placing it right over her thigh
After she did that, his eyes settled down
They got talking because
