Even he was amazed at how lucky he was with this one. It didn’t take long for him to convince her that sex between two consenting adults that love themselves irrespective of marital status was not against the laws in the Holy Book. His explanation was based off 1 Corinthians 6. “Paul said you should not take your body and be with a harlot. Are you a harlot?”
As time went on, He had even succeeded in cutting her off from the fold. She had a fallout with her choir leader in Church and he had advised her to leave the Church completely. At that point, he had complete control over her because even for a heathen, he knew there was something about that Word they preach in Churches that is able to pierce through hearts. That wasn’t good for ‘business’.
“Ola, where have you been in 4 days that I haven’t heard from you?”
He ignored her as he continued watching the football match. It was an Arsenal match against Manchester United and his team was giving Robin Van-the-traitor a ‘guard of honor’.
“Ola! I asked you a question! You can’t just disappear without letting me know where you’ve been, return to my house, watch my TV and ignore me” she said, as she stood in front of the TV, blocking his vision.
“Ohhh! What a goooooooal! Robin Van Persie seals a win for Manchester United!”
Those were the words Ola heard from the TV before going ballistic.
“What?! You made me miss the goal?” *slap* “How-” *slap* “dare-” *wooze* “you?” *slap**punch**kick*. It was easy to beat her because all he had to think about was RVP. When he had satisfied his urge, he stormed out.
She had been calling him since then, sending text messages of apologies. He had not replied or answered any of them and he wasn’t about to start now. He was done on that front. In fact, *opens phone battery cover and removes sim card*, it was time to close that chapter completely. He tossed the sim card into the bin. He always made sure he cleared his tracks- new sim card for every girl; they never meet his friends; they never visit him at home.
He dried his hands as he closed the restroom door behind him. It was time- time to answer another altar call.
