She listened intently. She responded eagerly. Her desire glittered enticingly. After all, for some time now, her heart had been manipulated by the Master Deceiver to be receptive to these promises.
The Others had tried to lead her. The Others had tried to warn her how wrong her decisions were. The Others had tried to instruct her that sin was destructive no matter how it was packaged.
He held her. He smiled at her. He told her that everything was going to be alright.
She worked. She supported him, even though he was ten years her senior. She lied to the Others.
The Others called. The Others sent messages. The Others continued to reach out to her, even though she had abandoned them.
He told her that their love was all that mattered. He told her that they were in God’s will. He told her that they would be married, then everything would be alright.
She told him that she agreed with him. She told herself that she was an adult and could decide for herself what was right and what was wrong. She told the Others that they were super conservative Christians, and that she pitied them. She told the Others, and God, that she refused to change her relationship with him.
The Others requested counsel from the pastors. The Others begged her to repent, turn away from her sin, and repair her relationship with The Lord. The Others spoke prayers of intersession.
He lost everything he had during his day-trading activities. He got his divorced step-father to marry them. He got his best friend to rent them a house the friend was buying.
She got married in a yard. She got the husband she chose, rather than waiting on God’s choice. She got a house with a pool-table and couch which was left in the basement by the previous owners; they only had a bed on the main floor.
The Others shed tears.
He had promised her love. Her desire had glittered enticingly.
