My Doomed Wedding



At the age of 27, one would think life would have brought something good to my table. Thinking about it now, I wish I had taken the right decisions at the appropriate time. For example, I could have decided to be a serious person at an earlier stage in life, but I was too busy partying, sleeping around and misbehaving. By age 23, I had already been with a number of men. Seeing Tina, my childhood friend, in a happy relationship actually made a bell ring in my head. And that's where my search for a real man began. I got hooked up a few times. The first "real relationship" I had, was with a guy named Timothy. Tim for short actually. Tim was the kind of guy every lady wanted. He was 21, agreed. I was 2 years older than him, agreed. He was good in bed, agreed. But was he right for me ? Not at all. When I say Tim was the type of guy every lady wanted, I mean  this in the sexual way. Tim was very tall and handsome. He was about 6 ft 2 to be precised. But that was the only thing that there was to him actually.   He was just tall...handsome...that's it. Tim was lazy. I had my own bills to pay, but I paid his as well. It seemed like I was his mom. I knew him like the back of my hand. I knew he wasn't 100 percent with me but I stayed. I would complain to his friends hoping they would talk to him, but they just laughed at me when I turned my back. Was it because I was older than he was ? He would beg me on his knees each time I confronted him about his actions. I really did love him and for two damn years I gave him all a woman could give a man. I tried to leave him on so many occasions but I just couldn't. How could I be with a man  who didn't value my efforts ? He wasn't even a man...just a boy...A miserable little boy that I couldn't leave  alone. I don't really know how to describe my feelings at that point in time. I felt foolish...used ? You name it. I didn't really want to open up to anyone about my relationship. Tina was the only exception. I owe her a lot of thanks and misery. Thanks to Tina I'm part of an evil scheme, or rather a doomed destiny. How Tina brought me into this situation ? Well...I suppose my pen won't mind explaining it in simple words.


After I managed to break up with Timothy, it seemed like I had become paranoid as to what may concern the opposite sex. 

" Laura, you need to chill and move on" is what I would hear every single day.

 Tina was at the verge of destroying my eardrums when I decided to hid to her advice. I started dating again. The guys I met were usually in the same categories of men I tried to avoid. Either they were too nice, too arrogant or just annoying. Now that I think of it, there was this one man whom I felt was too good to be true.  I believe his name was Samuel...yes, Samuel. Pardon me, I'm oblivious when it comes to names. Our first date was out of the ordinary, if that's safe to say. I liked him, but I just wasn't in love with him yet. Samuel took me to the park and told me to count the stars in the sky that evening.  I looked at him with a confused face. He smiled and said: "Laura, the day you'll have the patience to count the stars in the sky, is the day you'll find what you are truly looking for. " I didn't understand what he meant, so I just laughed it off and called him silly. In the next 3 months of our relationship ( well...if I may call it that way), Samuel was always there for me. I had finally gained the courage to confide in him and he would listen and advice me. But then I had just one problem with him: he never wanted to have sex with me. He would hold me and tell me he wanted to wait. At that point, I felt  only two things were involved. One, either he was secretly gay. Or two, he had a little penis size. Either ways I wasn't ready to subject myself to any of these two options and I decided to call it  quit. I stopped returning his calls and replying his texts. Surprisingly enough, Samuel would send me bible passages to read which I never did. I mean, who still reads their bible on a daily  or even bothers to understands the deep messages behind each verse ? Nobody. That was exactly my point. And so I ran back to my only "true" friend Tina who advised me not to give up. At that point I felt she was just trying to mock me. It seemed as if she was trying to tell me " I told you to be serious but you refused to listen to me" on a low key. I decided to pretend everything was alright till the day Tina introduced me to Vincent. Vincent was tall and handsome. There was something mysterious about him which I just couldn't place my finger on. But to cut a relationship of a year short, I believed he was the one for me. He was caring, rich and good in bed. What else did I need ? He would show up at my office, take me out, shower me with gifts and love. One thing I noticed was the fact that I never got to see him at night. He was either busy, tired or in a meeting. Vincent would have flowers delivered to my office and all my female colleagues would tell me how I lucky I was. Until this one Friday, Vincent sent me a little box alongside a bouquet of roses. I wondered what he was up to this time around. I opened the box and saw a diamond ring in it. I was shocked, happy and confused all in 1. I then saw a note attached to the bouquet with the words " Will You Marry Me ?", I glanced at the note for about ten minutes, I then picked up my phone and called him. I told him the biggest YES I had ever said in my life. 

The plans were made after he met my parents. Everything was going on smoothly and according to plan until I woke up on my wedding day with a terrible feeling. Everyone was excited, rushing in and out of my room. But I was just sitting there numb, while the make-up artist was doing her job. I tried talking to my mom about how I felt, but she told me to not worry. "You're just having cold feet, darling". She hugged me and told me to be happy because it was my day. I felt better after our conversation. The limousine  was waiting outside, the bride maids were ready. I was dressed, happy and ready to go but my spirit was far away. We finally made it to church. As I stood at the entrance of the church, everyone stood up.   I saw my entire family, friends and colleagues smiling. My father walked me down the aisle. I felt joyful because I was living every little girl's dream. I was beautiful and I had my moment. Vincent was standing at the altar, looking handsome. His brother stood next to him as his best man, while Tina was my bride's maid.

The pastor asked everyone to sit down and the ceremony began. As the ceremony was going on, Vincent interrupted the pastor and told him to hold his peace. He seemed so angry and I was afraid he wanted to call the wedding off. But my fear quickly became my reality when I saw Vincent turn into a huge beast with 6 horns. His voice went from smooth to evil.

"Laura, Laura, Laura...Will you marry me ?" 

Everyone in the church panicked and tried to run out the door. But the doors were shut. There was absolutely no way out.

He laughed. And that laugh is a evil laugh I will never forget.

"So Laura! You don't want to marry me anymore ? Aww...well...My love, you have no choice but to."

"Who are you and were is Vincent ?!"

I then noticed that his alleged brother and family had disappeared into thin air.

"I am surprised you don't know me. I'm Vincent, of course"

"It can't be !"

" Oh yes it can, and it shall be, my love."

"Let me go, I don't love you. Let me go !"

"You don't love me you say ? But...but...We had sex on several occasions and you, my dear, even..."

" It's just sex ! There is nothing to it, damn it ! Let us go ! "

"Aha! That is were you are beyond wrong, my beloved wife. Sex is the union of two people to the making of one being. Why exactly do you think the 'Almighty' GOD rebuked sex before marriage ? Argh, my dear you should have listened to Samuel. Once you have sex with a person, you have no secret. You lose yourself in the other and the other in you. Sex is the greatest tool we use to get want we want: the mind"

" How do you know about Samuel ? And what do you want ? Why are you holding us captive ? "

"Easy now, cow girl. This isn't your house. Now I am more than willing to let you ride again, if you know what I mean but one thing at a time " 

He laughed again.

" Oh well to answer your questions... Samuel, my dear, was the angel sent to help you fulfill  your destiny and protect you. The God you claim doesn't exist, chose you for a purpose but then you decided to not listen to him while he called your name. Even when you we're riding dicks during your college years, He kept calling your name. But you were lost in your moans and lustful desires. You fulfilling that purpose would mean me losing the souls I have worked so hard to keep captive. Now if you were in my shoes, you wouldn't want to piss Satan off, would you ? I thought as much." 

"What ?!'

" Many are called, but few are chosen. And you, Laura, were chosen but you were deaf. You, my dear have only two options right now. Either, you surrender to me and I destroy your star or I let you go but I kill the people you love and serve them to my colleagues and the witches for dinner. The ball is in your court and you have 3 minutes to the decide. Starting...Now!"

I looked at the people around me and saw tears, fear and damnation. How could I even make such a decision ? They pleaded with me to surrender myself, but then I realized that every one was selfish. No one truly cares. No one would actually lay down their life for another. In my anger, I made the decision I would later live to regret.

" Take them and let me go ! "

"Very well then"

I watched how he slaughtered all of them with one swing of his tail. The doors opened, and I ran out of   the church with all the strength  I had in me. I kept on running, until I got to a bus stop where I almost gave up the ghost.

" Why couldn't that pastor save us ?! Why ?"

"Not all who call the name of Jesus are of him, Laura" 

I couldn't see who was talking to me, but his voice seemed so familiar.

"Samuel ?"

" Get up  and go to the hills. There you'll see an elderly man who will help  you"

"What hills ? There are no hills in this city. I don't know any hill around here. Help me!"

" Get up and go to the hills. There you'll see an elderly man who will help you"


I woke up and saw myself lying next to Vincent. He woke up and tried to give me a hug but I pushed him away. Somehow the sight of him disgusted me. Vincent was shocked at my reaction and asked me what was wrong. I had to clear my mind and make myself realize that I had a terrible dream. I ordered Vincent out of my house and told him to stay away from me.

Going back to bed, I tried to figure out what had just happened. I then got a text message from Samuel telling me to read Psalm 121 verse 1 and 2. I wanted to ignore him but something told me not to. I opened my bible that I hadn't bothered to read in years.

"I lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help
My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth..."

  8. Sex is never just sex.
    I can't stress it enough.
    A condom cannot protect anyone from the real thing we need protection from so all this condom message is a huge joke. We should be more concerned about the soul ties and covenants that are being formed than STIs. Abstinence simple. As unpopular as it may be today.
    Of course, there is always healing with God and that is the good news. Not a license to go on sinning of course but an invitation to draw to the only one that can wash us and make us whole again and give us grace to abstain.
    Lovely message. Thank God it was a dream. Someone saw it n mentioned me on twitter. Thanks to her. She tot il love it. I did. Hehehe. Well done.
    Cheers.
