Comes another Intriguing mind blowing story titled “Agyemang”
“Look at your neighbor, the one sitting beside you and tell him or her, “I see God in you”. That was the words of Pastor Joshua at church. I didn’t have a problem with what he said during his sermon, but my problem was with the one sitting beside me. Joan was in my bed last night, as a matter of fact I just met her last night when I went out drinking with the guys.
And before I knew it, we were already in my bed, doing exactly what you are thinking of as at this moment. I woke up this morning already late for church and to my surprise she wanted to follow me to church. Now there she is, seated right beside me and yet I’m expected to tell her “I see God in you” after a one night stand.
Well, as awkward as it sounds, I can definitely handle that anyway. I knew nothing about her, just her name and I wasn’t ready to know anything about her.
Relationship was not my thing, i have sex when I want, I drink when I want and go to church when I want to. I answer to no one and in this city I reside in, is not my home.
My name is Agyemang and that all you need to know as far as my story is concerned. I’ve been in Accra over a year ago and I’m living the life that I had always wanted to. I have been able to make some few friends who also seem to be honest in their dealings. Well, all what a man needs in life with regards to friends are honest people.
Talking about friends, Festus, whom I considered like a brother, because, he practically knew everything about me. He is the type of friend that you are comfortable sharing stuff with. He won’t force or persuade you to say anything but with his way of listening, you feel that he actually understands you. You can just trust him for no reason.
Unlike Festus, Joe is more or less a coward, he looks away when trouble comes before him and runs. He is the guy who will call for a drink up and make noise about it till we all show up yet a bottle of a mini club is enough to get him drunk. We liked his company though, because he makes us laugh and find everything funny.
The last but not the least, Emy. Adorable as she is, she needs no guy in her life. She has never dated before and nothing shows that she was really ready for any kind of relationship. Just like me huh, she is sweet, funny and just what every guy would want to have for a girlfriend. These are the people I row with. The kind of friends I have.
Church service was over and I was really glad about it. At least, I can see Joan off. Her stay has been long overdue. It was just a one night stand and not a revival to bless it with thanksgiving service. Ok yeah, we got hooked up last night, had sex and that’s it. You following me to Church was never part of the plans. I mean who does that?
As if I have had enough for a day, just when we were about leaving the church premises, Pastor Joshua met me.
“Hey Agyemang, how are you doing” He asked.
“Very well Pastor, I really enjoyed your sermon today, I must say, I was very touched” I said it like I meant it. I just wanted to play nice and that’s all. After all my days in that church was numbered. I have been there for two months, one more month for me to move to another church.
That was my life style; It’s the same God everywhere right? So I’m free to go to any church I want. Before I came to this particular church, I was at Royal House, and gosh, that Church have been blessed with beautiful ladies. I must admit that’s the only church I wish their service will last for like the whole day. But the bad thing on my path, I couldn’t even have the courage to talk to any of them.
Unlike this Church, apart from Pastor Joshua who is a young pastor, the rest are just old people. I even wondered why I have been able to stay here for that long. The youngest girl here who is actually a singer too, is not even attractive. She comes to church with an oversize “Kaba and slit” and a big “Doku” on her head as if she is saving her hair for bald men.
Thinking that I was going be relieved after commending Pastor Joshua on his sermon, not knowing I was actually digging up my own grave.
“Oh Thank you Brother in Christ, I actually had a revelation last night that’s why I choose today’s theme. Anyway I see you brought your potential to church today” He said.
“My what….?” I wish could have said that aloud. This pastor “paa”. Is he doing match making or what? I kept asking myself.
Just when I was about redeeming myself, Joan interrupted the conversation.
“Wow Pastor, You are really bless with the gift of prophecy, I am actually betrothed to him, just that he doesn’t know it yet” She said.
Am I dreaming or what, She has already grown wings, what does she mean by that. “ Hehe Pastor, she is actually a very good friend of mine, She is just joking” I said.
“No I’m not, your father has sent me here, to bring you back home. It’s time for you to mount your throne Agyemang. Your people back home awaits you. My king” She revealed.
I just got stunned with her words and stood there speechless.
