Everyone Falls in love
Andrew had his eyes on the pastor, following his every movement on the altar, but his mind was someplace else. Two things were bothering him. Once he managed to get rid of one, the other thought would occupy his mind. It would have made sense to entertain the positive out of the two, but it was so foreign to him that it scared him. He had even turned down a Sunday afternoon visit from Veronica, one of his favorite lays. It would have been a great distraction right now, but he was trying to face his fears head-on.
Everyone in the congregation got up in response to something the pastor had said, and he saw himself rising with them. He closed his eyes and started praying.
Anita had had to change churches a lot in the last couple of years and she was getting tired of the act. It usually happened when people started asking too many questions about her private life and trying to reconcile her with her ex-husband. She always wondered why most of them didn’t understand the difference between separation and divorce.
So far at her new church, things had been going okay, till a particular couple found out they lived close to her. They started trying to make her attend home fellowship services which were held every Wednesday at their house, and they also always wanted to follow her home after church.
Today, she was hoping to get out of church as quickly as possible without having to greet anyone, so before ending ‘the grace,’ she was already on her feet heading out. Standing at the church entrance, along with the other people waiting for the second service was the friendly couple. Anita sighed and contemplated headed back into the church. She quickly replaced the frown on her face with a smile when she noticed they had seen her. They were about the same height and looked like teenage siblings in the matching Ankara outfit they had on. Anita exchanged greetings with them and was relieved when they said they had to rush in to get seats.
