With this, I begin the story of a young girl and her sister that had a fair share of the “Weirdo Theory”, not like they wanted it, but they had a feel of it cos their late Dad and mom made them pass through it.
In the treasure base of Nigeria, River state, there existed Mr. and Mrs. Pepple. They were a lovely couple that lived happily with two kids.
As shared by Miss Redemption Pepple, the first child of the late “Mr. and Mrs. Pepple”, the story looks like fiction but it really happened. The story below
My name is Redemption Pepple, I had never been to school or spoken to grown-ups that are not my parents until a few months ago when Apostle Chibuzor adopted me. My dad built a shack in a rural area, he selected a secluded part of Umuebule 4 town, Rivers state and built the small shack I had always called home. Beside the house was our church, my daddy was the pastor and me, my mum and sister where the only people that attended the church.
For 18 years, my sister and my mum stayed inside the one-room we lived in without seeing the outside world. For 18 years I didn’t know what a car looked like, what television looked like, what a phone looked like, what ice cream tasted like, what a real light bulb looked like, and what tarred road looked like.
For one month my parents slept, a few weeks after they slept they had started to bloat, decay, and smell. I had never seen a dying person, I didn’t know what death meant so I stayed calm.
For one month I and my sister stayed with our d**d parents, the stench was unbearable but we endured for fear of the outside world. My mum always sounded it to us that the world was evil, my thought was that a certain type of wild animal moved around.
days without waking up.
I and my sister were told that our parents were d**d, the villagers and the police officers dug 2 shallow graves in front of our house and buried my parents. I was confused, I wondered why they were covering my parents with sand but what could I do? I could only cry.
Our case was unique, it was rare. We were taken to the home of Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere, the general Overseer of omega power Ministries who asked them to bring us.
These few months in Apostle Chibuzor’s house has been the best days of I and my sisters lives, I had always known that something was missing, now I feel complete. I and my sister go to school every day, I am in ss1 and my sister in primary 3, school is a piece of cake because our chartered accountant mum taught us every subject including English.My new daddy says I will be going abroad to further my education, in fact, he promised a trip to Europe. In a few months, I went from a girl who never saw the world to a girl who loved nature. I can’t stop staring at trees, the sun, and my environment whenever I’m opportune to be outside.
My name is Redemption Pepple, I am redeemed and this is my story.Additional Credit: Laura Ezinne.
