Diary of a Rogue Priest: My Valentine

I had a date on Valentine’s Day, but I am happy the hullabaloo is over.

Oestrogen-filled-hearts are not fluttering like a butterfly (they are settling down to beating normally), flowers have withered and been dumped, and life is back.

The good thing is that I have had three nice meals this week (cooked at home).

The bad thing (sinful even) is that I am absconding my holy orders duties.

On Monday of the following week I was not concentrating during the adoration hour, I almost dropped the monstrance during benediction.

I was late for Tuesday morning mass thus I had to skip – unlike me – the sermon so that those who get to office early were not late.

On Wednesday I asked a deacon to go to listen to confessions while I gallivanted around Nairobi with the swanky Jewish girl.

On Thursday I at least tried to do what I was ordained to do – I officiated the evening mass and well, stayed the night at the vicarage.

As obvious, Members’ Day – Friday – was as usual – revelry. This day we had sex (on our fourth date) – and I mean hard sex – till the moon became the sun.

To keep my façade I had to remain indoors with Shiri the whole of Saturday. But in the evening I had to come up with an excuse of excuses to rush back to the vicarage – I was to conduct the Sunday Mass the following day.

  1. hmnn nice ventures, It is well written

    1. Thanks @Wright08, for reading and your nice comment.

  2. I found this rather insubstantial for a flash story, @vincentdepaul

    1. Sorry to disappoint, but @TolaO this is a diary. There is the earlier story that links to this. If you don’t mind you can look at the earlier one, ‘Epiphany’ and connect…..

      Thanks for your stopping by.

  3. I really did not get the hang of the story….rather poor attempt I must say

    1. Check what I have told @TolaO above @topazo. It’s sad it’s such a sad attempt….. but if you look at it closely you’ll see it in between the lines that this is a story of the escapades of a priest…. from January to December—– if you stick around that long and try to get hooked…..

      Thanks for your honesty.

    1. @Nalongo….. waiting to hear it!

  4. Nice, but the title shud be more like ‘Diary of a rogue priest who doesn’t give a sh*t abt his misdemeanors as a Clergy’.

    1. @transformer, you think so? Well, perhaps.

      Thanks for your time around here.

  5. Wow…just wow. Is the guy really a priest? I guess the ‘flash’ in this fiction was to shock us.

    1. @Nmadu, the guy is really a priest. And the flash was not to shock you, just for effect.

      The rogue priest is not going to bore you with long revelations of his life, who wants to know anyway, but he is trying to make it more palatable.

      Thanks for stopping by for the sexcapades of Father Frank.

  6. God’s watching them.

    1. @bunmiril, He truly is.

      He shall cleanse the Church Heathen.

  7. It would have been nice to know the motive behind his actions, and he is so taciturn one wonders if he is really capable of doing all he says he did, or maybe in his dreams?

    1. I read the first episode, ‘Diary of a Rogue Priest: Epiphany’ and I think that’s where the reason is @Myne for his actions.

    2. @Myne, he is so taciturn because he has so much in store, a bag full of surprises. And he really is capable of doing that, and much more.

      Stick around and see what skeletons come out of his closet.

  8. This rogue priest got me thinking roguish thought.
    Nice piece…am falling for his roguishness.

    1. Eheheheh…. @newnaija, you’ve fall more.

      1. I am lovin to hate this surprisingly unique priest.

  9. Do priests really do this?

  10. Yes, they do @menoveg but not all of them.
