In episode 6, we gave Adjoa the mic. She talked to us about why she cried as much as she did over what happened with Kyle in episode 5. It was an open heart and deep conversation. Then CeeJ continued with the story and told us how after many months of silence and self-restraint, Adjoa almost replied to one more convincing message Kyle had sent her.
The feelings battling within her were fierce; really fierce.
After receiving another heart melting message from Kyle and almost replying, she could not sleep. She kept turning and tossing herself in bed. She cried some more, then she decided to take her frustration to God or maybe…out on Him? It had been ages since she really took the time to talk to Him.

Adjoa froze as her phone dropped out of her hands. She felt as though she was in a dream. It didn’t feel real. Her legs had already started carrying her before her brain could make the command and her common sense impress on her the urge to resist. She took a first and then a second step and before she knew it, she was running down the stairs. She was about to walk pass someone in the hallway when she heard: Adjoa!
