I had to admit that d theme of the concert which was ‘Opening Heaven’s Gate’ was not an exaggeration. The atmosphere seemed to be charged with d power of God & d singers seemed to possess angelic voices even though I hadn’t heard d voice of an angel b4. I was lost in a world of my own when I suddenly heard,

“We would now like to welcome a young lady whom God really took time to design & package. After moulding her,he put in her throat an angelic voice which cannot be rivaled. Pls put ur hands together as we welcome Miss Belina Badmus

My heart started running a 100m race & I remained on seat for some seconds until I summoned courage to stand up. I walked up to d programme coordinator & smiled as I collected d mic. I faced d congregation & instantly wished I could disappear but that did not happen, then I remembered Kelvin was somewhere amongst them & everyone seemed to vanish b4 my eyes.

I had previously arranged for a piano to be set on d altar. After taking in enough breath I introduced myself & introduced d song. I planned on singing a personally written single since I had no back-up so I sat down behind d piano & d show began.

Immediately d songs started coming, Richard instantly knew that his attendance was not a mistake but he felt that he was looking for something more. He received a text message & his attention was instantly diverted to his phone. His head jerked up as he heard someone speaking but his breath was instantly taken away as he stared at d slim figure on d altar. The sky blue filmy gown she wore perfectly brought her curves to light. She was d perfect description of figure 8.

He left d gown & d next thing that came to his eye was the hair; long, black,& oh-so- beautiful . He has d urge to touch it in order to feel d texture.

His eyes then moved fully to d face & all d words that came to his mind could not do justice to that work of art. Her eyes seemed to tell a story.

There was a moment of uncertainty in her eyes & a bold stare replaced it. He desperately wanted to be close to her in order to find out d mysteries behind d eyes. Of everything he saw, it was her song that totally blew his mind away.

He stared at her as her slim fingers pressed d piano. She seemed to draw everyone into her song with so much ease that within seconds, Richard found himself listening to d lyrics of d song Tony had earlier on stepped out to receive a phone call from Prisca, d damsel that captured his heart,& was away throughout d ministration.

When the lady in blue finished her song, stood up & curtsied with a lovely smile on her face, Richard wished he was closer in order to capture her that way. An ear deafening applause followed & Richard joined Tony came in 5mins after Belina’s presentation & found Richard looking around like he was searching for something.

“Are u looking for me? Tony asked, Richard stared at tony like he had suddenly grown horns

“this ridiculously long talks u have with prisca would soon put u in trouble. U have just missed d best performance this evening” Tony hissed,

“when u allow urself to love again,u would find urself doing d same thing. So, who sang?” Richard opened his mouth to speak but nothing came out, that was when he realized that he was d biggest idiot in West Africa.

Prisca stood at d veranda of her dad’s house thinking about d love of her life, Tony. She remembered d first time she set her eyes on him & dwelt on it though it was not such a pleasant day. She had been standing by d road looking dejected. She was close to tears & she felt stupid. She had gone to visit her boy friend at ikeja but she ran out when he almost raped her.

She had been thought by her parents to remain chaste till marriage & that fool thought he had seen a mugu. She had been lucky that her bag was close to d door but after walking some distance, her bag was snatched from her & all she was left with was her shirt, her trouser & her flat shoe.

She stood by d road & no matter how much she hated it, she had to stop a private car. The first car happened to be Tony’s car & immediately he consented to carrying her, she entered & did not as much as glance at him throughout d drive.

Tony wanted to say something cos he was not used to being overlooked but when he looked at her, he noticed that she was secretly crying so he kept quiet. He dropped her at her door step even after she insisted on coming down earlier.

After he left, Prisca had been sad that she didn’t really appreciate his help but after some days, she forgot all about him. He appeared on her doorstep 2 weeks later & d rest is history.

Prisca left d veranda smiling as she went inside & when she saw d picture she had snapped with Belina, she decided that she would involve another person in their escapade.
