Mercy: but sweetheart…..
David: Don’t sweetheart me Mercy, just go back to the people you gave them to and bring them back else this house won’t contain us.
Mercy: But it’s for a good Cause oooo.
David: ‘I don’t care’ he screamed ‘Get out’
Mercy quickly left what she was doing and hurriedly left to the church to get them back. When she got to the church she met one of the leaders of her unit for he was also among those that followed her to her house to get them.
Mercy: Ermmm brother Abraham, good day.
Abraham: Good day Mrs. Mercy, are you okay this one you are looking tired and worn out, hope no problem and why are you here by this time? Didn’t you forget something?
Mercy: I am okay its just that ermmm, I have a little problem.
Abraham: What is it?
Mercy: Errmmmm…she didn’t know how to put her words and was finding the right way to put it when David interrupted her thought.
David: ‘Where are they’ he shouted
David: Don’t David me, where are they?
Abraham: Brother David, what is wrong and is everything alright?
David: Where are the things you took away from my home?
Abraham: What things, you mean the things you gave out for the work of God?
Mercy: Feeling embarrassed tried to calm him down ‘Sweetheart, Please don’t …..
David: ‘If you had told me before doing any of this, I am sure I wouldn’t be here today. You don’t want me to make a scene yet you keep coming up with crazy ideas every day. Where are my stuff my friend’ he said to Abraham.
Abraham: What is going on here Mercy?
Mercy: Ermmm, brother Abraham you see, can we…ermmm can I get the stuff back, the gadgets you took in my home.
Abraham: What for? I thought you gave it to the church and brother David, why all the screaming and yelling?
Mercy: Can we please have them now, please?
Abraham: it’s for the church.
David: Not anymore, can we have them now.
Mercy: Brother Abraham, Please just hand them over to us.
David: Every piece of them, just the way you took them.
Abraham: Wow! Okay. He took them where they were kept and handed it to them for it seems like David was willing to create a scene if he doesn’t have his belongings.
David took the items back home and replaced them right where they belonged and turned to his wife.
David: You see all this? He asked using his hands to show her all the properties he has ‘if I ever hear that any of them is missing, you won’t like what I will do. If you want to give out anything again, give out the ones you bought with your money and live what I sweat for alone.
Mercy: What is wrong with you? i have never seen you like this.
David: Don’t just do stuff without my permission for I don’t like it.
Mercy: Is that the reason why you acted the way you did in the house of God, do you know how embarrassing it was and what pastor will say when he gets to know of what you did?
David: Does it look to you like I care? The way you carrying yourself about church and Pastor is really beginning to get on my nerves oooo, you are beginning to get me angry.
Mercy: Why won’t I carry them like it is the air I breathe David? I know they will always be there whenever I need them. I don’t just know what to say to Pastor for this uncalled for attitude you displayed over there today.
David: I have told you my own woman and you would do as I have said.
Mercy: I will also listen to my pastor and do whatever it takes because it is obvious you are moving away from the service of God.
