Caution: May contain disturbing/sensitive lines.

In one timezone, 0510hrs GMT:
She felt his hot, intermittent breathe run down from his pointy nose down her spine as he positioned himself behind her. The cold, sharp, stainless steel crept its way around her neck and started to cut into her soft skin when it rested. She winced and the beads of sweat that had formed on her forehead and temple began to fall.

In front of her, a youth in his late teens held up a phone and she felt the lens of its camera come alive and even more those of her family, also pierced right through her skin adding to her anguish. Their palpitating eyes said it all; she could feel it but there was nothing she could do and she could not do what the men asked, not even if it would give her the chance to see her family again. Or could she? After all, she served a forgiving Lord. Continue reading “Crazy Pastor”

Hey! Hey!

Iyanu! Iyanu!

Onise! Onise!
