There and then,he paused when he remembered his promise to attend the mid week service that Friday.He couldn’t call any longer. He had real explanations to give them and a tangible one at that.
He got into his car,mustard some courage and called Theo,he knew Theo was a listener and the calmer one too then he changed his mind and decided to go to Theo’s house.Traffic was heavy that day.Now the sun had shone and came out well,scorching so badly. Jeff began fanning himself whiles he waited in traffic.

“Am sorry bro,I have got a lot on my mind, Jeff finally said.
