Luck Turned Out To Be Wickedness
A couple who has stayed for many years went out to be without child. The name of the man is Mr., Kelly. He has been seen to many people in his area as someone who can do good to people. He is a hard-working man, and the luck of not having children just fell on him. The wife, Mrs Kelly, is a wonderful woman who has the mind of rendering help to people just like the husband. It has been a very long time now that he has been looking for a child without getting one. Anytime he sees people maltreating their children, he always feels so bad and also feeling as if he has one. This also happened to the wife.
The couples were always visiting the orphanage homes to donate items such as food, clothes and money to the children. They became known generally and also known for charity. It hot to a stage where they were organizing Sunday evening service for children in their surroundings. Every child would love to attend this service, as they will laugh home with their hands filled with items. This has been their habit and their nature of living with people just because of their inability to have one.
The man was around the age of 65 while the wife was around the age of 58. This was their actual age, but after many consultations, they came into conclusions that they will have to adopt a child in the orphanage home. They got a girl who was at the age of 13 years. They took care of this child and also pampered her just like their own, although, she is their adopted. So, they sent her to secondary school, as she has attended primary school before. While in the school, she was cool-headed and calm. She is someone who does not feel shy and also has the ability to cope in any environment. She is a grown-up girl who deserves to be taken proper care of. The couple, her parents, promise her that they will take good care of her and train her to wherever she wished for. She was given a name called Mary.
Mary has been a faithful girl who her father love so much. Just because of Mary, Will always come back home early just to prove his love for his daughter. Even after adopting a child, they were not relenting on their normal and usual tasks on helping people. The Sundays service which they always organized for the students was still on going. They are kind people and well-behaved, being ever seen.
Just because of the way they always help people and also the orphanage homes, their prayers were answered and indeed it is what you are thinking. The woman got pregnant after the age of 67. There was happiness all over the Community and people were so much in joy when they heard she is pregnant. She was so much happy.
After some months, she delivered a baby boy. Things began to change gradually since when the baby was born. The woman who was seen as one great woman began to develop a character that no one would understand. So, she was not the woman they used to know before. She developed a different character that people we fear her. The husband on the other hand remain being a good man and was surprised saying his wife misbehaving after the delivery of the baby. The one who brought them luck which happens to be the orphan that's the adopted was now treated badly. She was not taken care of any longer and somehow tried to abandon the payment of her school fees of which the husband tried as much as we can to pay up her school fees as at when due just as promised. The children she always entertained during Sundays were abandoned. Pride sometimes starts from the very moment you achieve what you have not achieved before.
This character of hers kept on increasing until she began to develop a character of giving out her adopted daughter to men. The girl kept on rejecting and wanting to tell her adopted gather, but one way she was deprived as the woman threatened her to pack her out if she tells her husband. It kept on going until God that never sleeps answered the prayer of the orphan, who is a one way or the other, opened the way to her giving birth to a child. His revealed himself to the orphan and made the woman's baby to die after little sickness. After the death of her child, she was ashamed of herself and do not know what to do any longer other than having the thought of killing herself. The orphan began to console her and gave her hope again.
Sometimes, one will not show forth his or her character just because of poverty, but once there is money, pride will show begin to manifest. Be you, and never have the habit of pride in you when you are buoyant enough?
