I devoted the rest of my time trying to make it up to ISAIAH. it took some time but we became friends again. This time I allowed whatever I felt to blossom and grow. And before in knew what was happening I had fallen so deep in love with Isaiah.
Now that I finally wanted him to propose again, it seemed like it will never happen. Whenever we were together and I see him all smiles my heart would skip and I would feel that ”yes! This is the time, he would ask me to marry him again” but unfortunately it will be some other thing. I waited and longed for the proposal but it never came, and so I gave up. I wanted to her angry but I told myself it was my fault and so I moved on and accepted our just being friends.
Weeks turned into months and months into years. I had no relationship, no job, nothing. The only thing I had was my singing sprees with Isaiah. I was getting irritated with my life. At 30 no man in my life and there seemed to be no hope. I started getting irritated even at Isaiah. I stopped all of our show, he tried to convince me to come back but it was to no avail. And so he started taking MARVIS for shows instead and this irritated me even more and finally I stopped the choir. I only go to church on Sundays and when am there I frown all through. I hated seeing Isaiah singing with Marvis but then my pride wouldn’t let me do anything.
One evening I was sitted outside my house reading a novel and then Marvis came happy and all filled with smiles.
Marvis: sister Dani hi
Me: Marvis what’s up? This one you came visiting am I safe?
She burst out laughing so much.
Marvis: of course DANI, how are you?
Me: Am good thank you, what brings you here.
Marvis: Nothing much Dani, I only came here to invite you to church this evening by 6.
Me: Invite me to church, my own church. That’s funny.
Marvis: its not o, it’s not. You’ve not been a very food and active member for sometime now. U stopped the choir and changed from coning to church. Simply because , I dont know o, maybe someone hurt you.
Me: How do you mean?
Marvis: like I said I dont know o, but words have been flying around that a brother broke your heart and that is why you stopped everything.
Me: what? Who said that?/what brother?/broke which heart?
Marvis: like I said I dont know. Anyways I came to tell you to come to church this evening. Brother Isaiah has a big announcement to make. (She giggled as she said it)
Me: What big announcement does he have to make?
Marvis: Just come to church and you will hear it. You know you are my friend, please promise me you will come.
Me: If Isaiah is making an announcement his does it concern you and why is the announcement so important to you that you want me to be there.
Marvis: Dani relax, you will find out when you get to church. Just come OK?
(I watched her as she walked away, I wondered what it was that Isaiah wanted to announce in church and why it excites Marvis so much. I made up my mind not to go. But on a second thought, I decided to go. Let me even hear what he has to announce.
That evening I dresses casually and went to church, I sat at the extreme end and I saw when Marvis walked in, she was gorgeously dressed like a princess. When she saw me she put on a wide smile. I watched as she walked stylishly to the front seat and sat on a chair. So many of our choir members were shaking her hand. I still didnt understand what was happening.
It wasn’t long after the pastor finished his message that he invited brother Isaiah to the alter. When I saw him my heart skipped , he was looking so cool and handsome. I watched him mount the mic and then that beautiful voice that I have missed broke out of the speakers.
Isaiah: church of God praise the Lord
I was once again quiet as I heard the church chorus ”halleluyah”
