When I was very young, the only place of worship I knew was the Church. We followed strict moral principles. It was either I was preparing to preach or preparing for a church assignment. Our church rules were very strict and any violation of them could lead to sanctions.

For instance,two consenting adults couldn’t have sex with each other. It’s seen as a serious sin.

My church believed that sexual freedom should ONLY be expressed within the boundaries of marriage and all physical intimacy should be in line with those principles. These laws were vigorously enforced. While some youths saw these moral inhibitions as a violation of their fundamental human right of freedom, I was not perturbed by all these moral inhibitions.

To me, it was a way of life. I rationalized it by the argument that every church has its rules and regulations and once you agree to become a member of that church or society, you are inadvertently bounded by the church’s norm.

After graduating from Meridian University College, I had the opportunity to work in a Galaxy media house as a News Editor. There,I met a young beautiful lady called Dompoh Dorah. She was also a Christian. I later learned the name Dorah means “Gift”


Dorah was a very lovely lady.

Her smile was so infectious that she’d light up everyone around her with it. I don’t know the extent to which I could describe her unique beauty because no word artist could use words to perfectly paint a picture of her.


She had such an alluring beauty making me to believe that some things could be perfectly made-like her.


A lot of things made her beautiful but her strongest point of attraction is her eyes. They were unimaginably attractive. I felt magnetized by her charming eyes as if they were gleaming the statue of liberty. Her eyes sparkled in the Golden sun. Every outfit would no doubt be loved to embrace her body because she would make it look more gorgeous.


She was a beautiful icon of a lady. Every day, I found a new amazing dimension of her.

She lived every moment fully. Her ultimate philosophy was to live, love and laugh unconditionally. After all, life itself is free.

Her life seemed like a fairy tale, but in reality, she was a goddess of beauty.

She had a slender waist, whistling down from her bust, as smoothly as the water cascading from a waterfall. The bends of her hips were so voluptuous that you feel as if it has been carefully carved out by the creator. Her bosom was remarkably full. Her glistening Brown skin, infused with a hint of cream, correlated with her perfect figure and ethnic origin.


There is no denying the fact that her physique was more than  enough to give heart ache to any of the pasers by,as it surely cause my heart to skip uncontrollably.

Her charmy features made it difficult for me to look away.Tough for a mortal to not feel something ,

something greater than an instant infatuation.Dorah was flawlessly made.

I knew at once I was attracted to her. Looking through her eyes,I knew she was also attracted to me. This was a feeling I has never experience before. I spent hours thinking about her. I would call her in the evenings just to hear her voice. It wasn’t long before our feelings ran very deep.

{Story from Dora’s Perspective }


I’m  Dora. My Fiancée  ( Rudolph ) and I have been dating for about a year now.  We  both worked at Galaxy Media House.

One day ,he paid me a visit. He came into my room.We were watching TV. I was in a long sleeve white top and white PJ shorts. Rudolph was in jeans and T-shirt with the inscription ” I am Ready ” emblazoned on the T-shirt.


As if in line with that inscription,

Rudolph  said, “I think I’m ready to move our relationship to the next level.” He wispered in my ear as he grabbed my inner thigh and slowly started moving his hand in the direction of my V*. He began to kiss me passionately. His lips were soft and gentle. I let out a soft moan and wrapped my arms around his neck.

He gently pushed me onto the couch and climbed on top of me, kissing me the whole time. He ripped my shirt off of me, revealing my laced bra.

I had my eyes closed and felt his lips move from my mouth to my neck and  slowly made his way down to my chest.

“Rudolph ” I moaned. Then I came back to reality. I put my hand on his chest and pushed him away. “ Rudolph.  We can’t do it now. We are not supposed to be doing this.You know it. We are Christians.

I looked at his face. He agreed in principle but in reality I knew he was burning with lust.

I said, “I’m not ready to loose my virginity until the Marriage night. ” I looked down, and hoped I didn’t hurt his feelings that much. It is a pain he had to bear but for how long.


“I understand, he said,I can wait. till the right time.” He sat down beside me. I put my head on his chest and He stroked my hair as we both watched the T.V.

[ Narration from Dorah’s Point of view]


The church was full to capacity and everyone was impatiently waiting for our arrival. In our church,it is customary for both couples to arrive at the Kingdom Hall at the same time. Rudolph Nart,my husband -to -be held my hands as we walked meekly into the church Hall. I felt exhausted and for a good reason. The activity we engaged in caused us to be thirty minutes late and the wedding guest were a bit worried.


Pastor Matthew was in one of his best moods and happily singing the Hymns along with the other congregants.

Among the congregants were our families, relatives, friends, and well-wishers. I looked really magnificent and beautiful and exuded such radiance and confidence that my mother couldn’t help smiling ceaselessly.


It was a solemn moment. The congregation cheered as we moved down the aisle. We sat down. Upon our arrival, the sermon began. People waited patiently for the crucial moment. After a long sermon on the importance of remaining faithful to our married partners, the need to enter marriage purely and the role of the husband and wife, the moment everyone was looking forward to finally came.
