Pastor Jim was seated in his office glancing through the bible when chief Ike walked in. The pastor stood up in respect to the chief and they shook hands and exchanged pleasantries.

Jim: Chief chief, God bless you sir for visiting my office today. I am always excited to have you around.

Chief Ike: Yes pastor, am glad to be here too. Where is Reverend ?

Jim: Reverend Leo is currently not available. But I am here to assist in whatever you need chief. Is there any problem you wanted to see him about?

Chief Ike: Yes pastor, I am having a small issue. And I don’t know if you can really help me out.

Jim: Habba chief, this is the reason God placed us here, so that we can be of help to others. What exactly is the problem chief? (He ended laughing. ).

Chief Ike: pastor Jim, you see that my small wife, I am now ready to pay her bride price.

Jim: Really? But is she not like your 6th wife?

Chief Ike: That is correct . I want to pay her dowry now and I want the church to arrange a blessed marriage for us.

Jim: but chief you know the Bible is against marrying of two wives, not to talk of number six. Our Reverend will not allow it o. And the people might start thinking it’d the right thing to do.

Chief Ike: Which people? These church rats? When I was donating blocks and cements and spending raw cash on this churchch building where were they? Why did Reverend Leo not tell me to return all the goodies I was bringing to the church? What about when I pay big money as my tithe? Why didn’t they say my wives and I are sinners. Anyways…..I wanted to do it here and bring in my fellow chiefs and big politicians to grace the church and also drop their token during the marriage. But since you people don’t want. I can go. I will always see a church that will bless our marriage. (he stands up to leave, but pastor Jim quickly stops him)

Pastor Jim: Habba chief, you get upset easily , I never said we will not do it o, is it not blessed marriage? What is blessed marriage? We will do it , don’t worry, Reverend Leo and I will do it. You are a very important man in this church and if not for you this church wouldn’t have been this big and grown. There is nothing we can deny you. Infact let me leak a secret for you. The other day, Reverend Leo and I were contemplating on making you a deacon.

Chief Ike: (laughing) you doing mean it?

Pastor Jim: Absolutely Chief, so this one is just a small thing. Erm, when do you plan on having the marriage sir.

Chief Ike: Next Sunday is fine by me,nif you don’t mind.

Pastor Jim: No no no I don’t mind. Even if you want it tomorrow, it can be arranged sir. Necg Sunday is fine. I will discuss with the reverend about it and inform him to be prepared.

Chief Ike nodded his head in satisfaction , he put his hands into his big agbada pocket and brings out a bundle of cash and stretches it to the pastor.

Chief Ike: It’s okay pastor. That is the sum of three hundred thousand naira in cash, use it to arrange anything you need to do before Sunday. If you need more let me know. Alright.

Jim: (laughing non stop) Chief chief, thank you so much. God bless you so much. You don’t have to worry about anything, your marriage is blessed already sir. See you on Thursday.

Chief Ike turns and leave while pastor Jim broke into a dance at his office raising the money high like a baby. When he hears the sound of footstep approaching. He quickly hides the money inside his bag and sat down quietly.
