“The One I Called Friend” (Episode 2)

    Simi’s father was buried a week later, Simi had to go live with her aunt since she was now an orphan.

    Mrs. Adepoju was deeply worried, she had seen Simi smoking a cigarette in a dream, and two weeks later, she had a dream where she saw Simi committing an abortion. At that point, she couldn’t take it again, so she began to ask the Holy Spirit for the interpretation of the dreams and the appropriate steps to take. The Holy Spirit made her realize that the death of Simi’s parents had made her lose faith in God and she was already walking in the path of destruction.

    Mrs. Adepoju became restless, Simi was one of the best students in her school who had won many awards which brought great recognition and fame to her school. When she saw that Simi was a child destined for greatness, Mrs. Adepoju introduced Christ to her. She taught Simi how to hear from God and be very close to Him.

    After the Holy Spirit spoke to her, Mrs. Adepoju decided to bring Simi to live with her. She got the address of Aunty Lucy and then traveled to see her. Getting to the address she was given, she knocked on the door but got no response. She wanted to go back but the Holy Spirit told her to open the door, she obeyed and discovered that the door was unlocked. It was like Mrs. Adepoju was pushed by an invisible hand to one of the rooms. Alas, she met Simi and an unknown young boy in a romance.

    Mrs. Adepoju screamed Simi’s name which brought the duo to consciousness. Simi was shocked to see Mrs. Adepju, she quickly knelt before her while the boy ran out of the house.

    Mrs. Adepoju: (wiped the tears falling from her face) Why are you doing this? I thought I taught you to run from pre-marital sex. Why do you want to throw your bright future away?

    Simi: I am very sorry ma, my eldest cousin said having sex is the easiest way to let go of grief.

    Mrs. Adepoju: Never, that’s a lie from the pit of hell. Having God is the only way to let go of grief.

    Simi: God? God stopped existing in my dictionary the moment He took my parent from me, He could have let them live. God failed me.

    Mrs. Adepoju: You know what? Pick every of your belongings, you are coming with me. I will wait for your Aunty to be back from the market. No matter what she thinks or says, you are going with me. I am not leaving here without you.
