Nephilim by ReuEl12(m): 10:28pm On Aug 06, 2016
PROLOGUE

Success was imminent, he knew. He could almost literally taste the euphoric flavour of breakthrough, he had been working on this project for over two thousand years, and after centuries of countless failures, he was finally getting there.

Durza a sorcerer... Known all over the mystic world for his ground breaking and revolutionary discoveries in meta-physical science is considered a genius among sorcerers, The kind of person obsessed at what is beyond the Beyond, and that was why his master recruited him For the project he is currently working on.
The project sounded simple, how hard could it be to Crack the encryption encoded in the meta-genetic make up of the human soul that prevents a Nephilim from accessing their celestial abilities. Which in other words means he was basically told to hack the human soul. But after two thousand years of utter failure for a sorcerer who knew all that is known about the body, mind, soul and spirit, whom with such knowledge was able to unlock the secret of immortality, stop the natural aging process and even go as far as resuscitating the dead; he Found out the task was easier said than done. And From the countless lives (both human and otherwise) lost to the cause of the project, he soon realized that all that is known about man, is not all that there is to know about man.

For two millenia he worked on the project and for the last decade he had been working non stop, and tonight he was close to success. He wasn't the first to take on the project, he knew. Renowned sorcerers had taken up the project in the past. People he had read about in the mystery books, people who wrote the books even, but none have succeeded, most ran mad. The rest gave up, But he would not, he promised himself... he was determined to succeed.

The Nephilims themselves (offsprings of fallen angels who slept with humans), provided Durza with all he needed. facilities, equipments, humans and occasionally Nephilim test subjects. Over the years he worked with the more prominent ones. Shakespeare, Ceaser, Hitler, Einstein, Newton, Azikiwe, Bello, Awolowo. All of them Nephilims, all of them men who made history. Some were heroes, some caused great havoc in the world... Durza hated all of them. But the master believes that unblocking the access to their abilities is crucial to the plan. Piss on that Durza thought... Look what happened to the first generation Nephilims he thought, The Giants; if the flood had not come along he wondered what would have become Of
the world under their rule, With access to primordial powers very soon the new generation Nephilims wouldn't be much different, from the Giants.. He surmised.

Durza surrounded by mystic circles (glowing round shapes containing cryptic symbols, and diagrams,) was working on a male nephilim test subject, cryptic circles were floating just above the subject's body, like a reality augmented Computer, Durza traced his finger from one circle to another, leaving a thin blue glowing line in it's path that connected both circles. The first mystic circle containing cryptic symbols and writings, began to spin very fast then started to change colors from the bright blue that it was to shades of different colors till it turned gold the color of divinity. "Yes!" Durza exclaimed, "I am half way through" he then turned to the second circle containing a cryptic diagram of man drawn in three layers so it looked like it's got six arms and six legs depicting the mind, soul and body. SStarted spinning like the first one. It was changing into different colors and though it took a bit longer than the first circle it finally turned to gold and stopped spinning "SUCCEEEEEESSSSS!!!" he exclaimed. "I did it, I did it... I have surpassed every sorcerer before me... I hacked the human soul... I am sorcerer supreme" he announced. I have to tell the master... He thought to himself. He dropped to his knees and began to chant, after a few minutes he started to Trace his index finger on thin air.. As he did, blue lines left his finger tips and trailed the air after him, by the time he was done, another mystic circle was floating before Him. He bowed as a voice called from within the circle "Durza, what news?" it was a deep but gentle voice, with a touch of cold cruelty about it. Durza replied "master... it is ready, the code, I've cracked it." "well done Durza, I never doubted you. You should know" the voice commended. "Now we can begin execution of our plan in earnest, Durza, your duty next duty is to claim them..." the voice said. "yes I am right on it master, l just need to isolate the ones from prominent families, who are with us before i-" "No!" The voice cut him off, "claim them all! Claim every Nephilim in the world," he continued "we have come too far to fail, I will not leave anything to chance". And Durza replied "as you command master". Then he created two mystic circles and started tracing his fingers on them as he worked on the circle the Boy he experimented on earlier began to shake his hand and as he did objects in lab where Durza worked started to vibrate "what's happening to me" he yelled as a searing pain fired through out his body.... "You're accessing, primordial celestial powers, that was locked inside you since your birth... The effect for the first time should be painful" Durza answered as he finished working on the circles. He flicked his fingers over them and all the floating circles in the room, except the communication circle merged Into one giant circle with a large letter N in the middle. "brace yourself boy, the world as you know it is about to change". He warned as He slammed his hand on the circle and the circle started glowing, it glowed So bright it blinded Durza and then it dissappeard . After a few seconds the boy in the lab screamed as he began to trash around again... all of a sudden his voice became mute, tried to scream but no sound came out... He beckoned to Durza, but the sorcerer was too busy basking in the glory of his success that he wasn't paying attention. In a desperate attempt to speak again he opened his mouth once more to scream but instead of the sound of screaming; a high pitched hypersonic wave emanated from his mouth, dispersed around him and flattened everything. The lab and everything in the forest within a mile Radius was gone in a matter of seconds. "interesting... Very interesting" Durza noted as he touched the mystic circle he used to contact his master, he adjusted it's frequency to Earth's frequency in time to hear all what was going on around the world for the confirmation of his work.
And like clock work the first news came in :

*STATIC* We interrupt this program to bring you a breaking news report... The arik air flight from Lagos to New York carrying over 288 passengers, exploded in a bomb Blast that incinerated all on board *STATIC* mysterious water flood a local town in Ghana *STATIC* unexplained 9.2 earthquake rocked a small town in connticut USA *STATIC* shocking science anomaly : everything within a mile radius is suspended mid air, in Oxford University England. We are now getting live reports from our correspondents that unexplainable events like these are occurring in places from all over the world.


"it's starting boy " Durza said, talking to the Nephilim that just flattened the forest around him..... "The Beginning of the End!"

ARC 1 (Jason)

CHAPTER 1 : CLAIMED

Three years later... Somewhere in Lagos.

Jason stood on the balcony of his house and watched the streets come to life in the morning. He saw people go about their businesses. Shop owners opened up and workers left for work, on foot, on cars, and other vehicles. A normal day for anybody else but Jason. To him July 31 would always be considered a black day, for it was on this day 3 years ago that he lost his best friend O'Neil. He was a victim, of the airplane explosion that killed all 288 people aboard it. Nothing on that day suggested that such a tragic event would occur.... he flashed back. it was O'Neil's birthday he had just turned fifteen.... O'Neil couldn't contain his happiness that day, his father who had abandoned him since childhood visited and was taking him back to the US to live with him. His distant relatives who had been in custody of him, who made his life a living hell by the way, were not too happy about it but they were all there to send him off "take care of my street" he said to Jason as he swaggered away to board his flight. Jason was sad to see him go, a bit jealous too because America was wonderland to them both and they had both wanted to go, but he was happy that O'Neil was leaving his hellish life behind. The rest of that day was a blur for Jason until that evening, when he picked up his phone to surf the Internet and saw the devastating news : Breaking : Arik air flight from Lagos to New York, has been bombed. 'Lagos-New York , arik air.. Isn't that O'Neil's plane?' he thought as he ran down stairs to watch the evening news... Which confirmed it. And even added the fact that no one on the plane survived. He still didn't believe it until the names of everyone aboard that plane was released to the public. The media had concluded that it was a bomb. Snuck in by terrorist elements that worked at the airport. But no one was able to come up with a logical explanation. What made it really weird was that a series of unexplainable events occurred world wide at about that exact moment. It was all over the media... What kind of bomb incinirates 288 people flesh, bones and all. Jason was asking himself when his phone rang pulling him back to the present.. It was his girlfriend Elera "hey babe" the voice on the line said "so I know what today is for you and I know that some how you have managed to convince yourself that, him not being alive and you being alive right now is unfair". Jason chuckled "you know me so well, angel. It's hard to believe he's gone. he has never really been happy his whole life, abandoned by his father, lost his mother, maltreated by his relatives and just when he thought he was finally going to be happy, he died in a very brutal way. Me on the other hand have everything going for me, love of both my parents, I have never lacked anything, you're in my life, I am happy ; yet here I am alive and him.... dead. I can't wrap my head around that... Lera" he explained, "I understand Jason, but I believe it's not our place to question our good fortune, we should rather thank God for it, you also shouldn't question the fortune of others either, look come to the cafe alright, let's have fun to get your mind off things". She said. Elera : His angel, they were friends since childhood, two years ago they evolved into something more, The perfect couple the street had dubbed them and they were right... Jason and Elera mixed together so well that their brainwaves operate on the same frequency.

"you know when you said you wanted to help 'get my mind of things' I had imagined that we would be doing something a little more intimate than playing board games.." Jason confessed thirty minutes later, when he met up with elera at the cafe. She replied smiling slyly "Jay it's yours, all of it... You simply just have to wait till we're married to each other. I swore a chastity vow in church...". "but Nobody does that anymore" Jason said exaspiratingly. "Yea, cos nobody values it any more... But I do.. " Elera fired back. Triggering a friendly but strong argument about the value in being a virgin, nobody paid them any attention because they all new the couple play and argue alot wherever they are. Jason was making a point about how men of the 21st century no longer cared about virginity when it happened...

It started as a feeling, at first, that something bad was about to go down, but Jason had ignored it thinking it was an after effect of the mood he had been earlier... But little did he know that it was his gut telling him that play Time is over. The skies grew dark, like it was going to rain. On TV the AIT weatherman was announcing that every part of Lagos was going to be sunny. Looking outside Elera told Jason "OK it's either that is the world's most wrong weather prediction or-" "something Is not right" Jason interrupted. "Not exactly what I was going to say but that about covers it" elera commented. Jason felt the air pressure drop... And he knew what was coming next, he wasn't sure of how he knew but he did. "we have to get out of here" he told her. "It's just rain Jason, no need to get all worked up over the fact that science got it wrong this time" Elera chided. "There is gonna be a lightning storm!" Jason announced "every body, get to safety...!" but nobody moved until the first lightening struck... It shattered the roof of a nearby building then all hell broke lose, everyone scampered for safety as lightening upon lightening strikes descended on the town for almost half a mile radius from where he stood, CRAAAAAAAACK!! it struck, accompanied by the deafening peals of thunder, and strong winds... Destroying everything. Jason looked and saw that just beyond the street boundary, was another world were it wasn't thundering. Everything was sunny and peaceful in the next street... It Felt almost as if the lightening storm was concentrating on where he was. Then once again the air pressure dropped all around him, the hairs on the back of his neck stood up, somehow he knew again, the big one is coming ... He turned to elera who was behind him, and yelled GET COVER!!, then all of a sudden everything seemed to slow down around him. He saw elera's eyes widen, he turned back to see what she was looking at just in time to see a gigantic bolt of lightening coming straight at him. It struck him square in the chest the force lifted him up ten feet, and sent him flying backwards, smashing him into a pillar... Elera screamed his name as he dropped unconsciously on the floor with sparks of electricity visibly coursing through his body.

...... He was claimed.

Chapter 2 : AMNESIA

JASON NOOO! Elera screamed as she ran over to him. "Don't touch him" the cafe keeper warned, "look, the lightning storm has stopped and that Implies that what just happened now, was because of him. Touching him and getting yourself involved is not a good idea" he explained. Elera replied him "we can't just stand and do nothing" "we have to, at least until all these weird sparkles of electricity stop coming out of his body. none of us would be any good to him, if we died trying to touch him in his current state" he said as he watched another jolt of electricity, surged out of his body. Eight hours later the surging of electricity stopped and he was rushed to the hospital... On getting there Elera called Jason's family, when they arrived, they asked her what happened and she told them. Twenty-four hours later the doctor came out looking confused. That's not a good news face Elera thought as he approached them. "Doc tell us what's going on, has anything happened to our son?" Jason's parents asked. "I don't know" the doctor replied. "he's waking up, your faces should be the first he sees. if he suffered anything in his brain as an effect of the excess electricity, seeing familiar faces would serve as a reboot for his brain" "OK So, why the confused look on your face" Elera asked him. And the doctor replied "well he's waking up" the doctor said but seeing that they didn't understand the doctor then proceeded to explain, "if I hadn't treated patients who said they were injured during a strange lightning storm attack myself, I would not have believed. Because for someone who was reported to have been actually struck by lightning, he doesn't look the part. He should be charred beyond recognition but instead if at all this is possible, I would say he got more healthy than he was." The doctor said. They got to his bed minutes before he woke up and when he did he asked "where am I?" his mother answered "you are in the hospital, dear. Am glad you're all right". "A hospital... what am I doing in a hospital and...." Jason was saying as his mother walked up to him to sit by his bed side and stretch her hands to hold him. He withdrew from her then completed his sentence.. "Who are you? All of you?" he said and everybody's mouth, including the doctor's dropped wide open. Elera rushed forward and grabbed him .. "Jason it's me, it's me your angel, I was with you earlier today.... Please tell me you remember me" she pleaded with tears rolling down her eyes "I cannot, untop of all this handle you forgetting me." she said. And Jason replied "I'm sorry, I really am but I don't remember any of you" "doctor did any of the other patients struck by lightning show any signs of memory loss?" Jason's father asked. "so far mister Orji, your son is the only patient brought in here today who is reported to have been actually struck by lightning. The patients here sustained their injuries from stampede, falling debris and other common ways you would expect in a situation like that" the doctor replied. "You said you ran test, and his results where clean" Elera in frustration, yelled at the doctor "I did, I ran every test, I can assure you he is clean. As a doctor and a family friend I am telling you that there is nothing medically wrong with your son" the doctor assured "but there is something obviously wrong, the boy doesn't remember his family! I believe that's called amnesia, which means something is wrong with his brain, did you test his brain?" Jason's father asked "this is his CAT scan results on my computer.. . It shows nothing, no sign of any abnormality in his brain activity" the doctor said calmly, as he showed them his computer. Then something crossed his mind, he turned to Elera and asked "tell us again Dear.... What exactly happened, don't leave any detail out". Elera reluctantly told them everything from when she called till when they got to the hospital, Jason listened too... It hurt him to see all this people hurting, because he couldn't remember them. When she finished the doctor asked "so the storm stopped exactly after he was struck?" "yes" Elera confirmed.

The doctor took a deep breathe then addressed Jason's parents "Mr and Mrs Orji" he said then continued "as a medical practitioner I swore an oath to save lives to the best of my ability, however way I can. And sometimes that involves going out of my comfort zone to do it, I know you're not religious people so it will be difficult to explain but I have to, for Jason's sake. last year, my daughter broke her spinal cord in a fatal auto accident, I myself diagnosed that she would never walk again, last week she won the award for the best female athlete in her school." "how is that possible" , Elera asked "good, question" the doctor replied, then continued "a month after her accident we were at a mall shopping, when we met this man... Ezekiel he called himself ; he knelt down and grabbed my daughter's hand and to my utter Amazement, my daughter stood up right before my eyes... I told him to name his price for what he did for my daughter but he said to me 'I am a prophet and freely I was given, so freely I will give in return... Even if I wasn't giving freely, for this little princess I would make an exception' I collected his contact and I invited him for dinner with my family And that evening Ezekiel opened my eyes to a whole new world, where the spiritual which is superior to the physical is as real as any of us standing in this room. He told me that something has happened that will make the world a whole lot stranger than it is, that he was here to help, and that if I come across anything that is beyond what I can handle, I should reach out to him. I think your son's problem is spiritual and with your permission I'll ask him to come and help." the doctor concluded. Jason's father thought about it for a moment then said "I don't trust this ezekiel character, but I trust you with my son's life doctor, please do whatever it takes." so the doctor contacted Ezekiel the prophet and They all left the room to let Jason rest before the prophet arrived. As Jason was about to close his eyes to sleep, he saw a hooded figure emerge slowly from the ground, till all of his body was visible. Jason sat up, In fear stuttered as he asked "Who are you?" the figure replied "you know, you've been asking that question alot today... I am the reason you don't remember your family and I have come to warn you, about their plan." Jason's heart pounded in rage... "why would you take away my memory, do you know what you have done!" Jason asked him "trust me boy" the figure said as he pulled back his Hood to reveal his face... He was an old white man with an unnaturally blue eyes "it's for your own good, what you're meant to do will be made a whole lot easier without your past holding you back" he said. And Jason replied "this past you speak of, are my family". The figure pressured "then if not for your good; think of their own good, their safety.... If you love them... Or think you do, you will not go through with their plan to restore your memory, because if you do, I will kill every one of them slowly and painfully. Consider your choice carefully : get back your memories and lose your family or stay as you are and ensure their safety. Decide quickly, the prophet arrives soon, your time is short." the figure warned as He melted back into the ground and Jason woke up. He had been dreaming, he exhaled as beads of sweat rolled down his face, he lied back down and thought of what had just happened.

Chapter 3 : 'AMNESIUM'

30 minutes later the prophet Ezekiel, Jason's parents, the doctor and Elera entered the room. immediately Jason sat up and announced "I don't want to do it anymore, I don't want any help, I don't want my memories back" the prophet examined him and said "they've gotten to him, for anything to work he has to be willing" "Jason honey, what are you talking about" his mother said. Then Elera walked over to him, climed his bed and kissed him deeply, he hesitated for a few seconds then kissed her back when they finished she asked him "how did that feel" "good" he replied, "Jason I love you" she said "and the next time we kiss like that I want you to remember me to make it perfect, so please let us help you." Jason looked at her then then at the prophet, and said "okay, am willing, help me." the prophet wasted no time he touched his head and started to speak in strange tongues. Jason began to shake violently, when he opened his eyes every part of it was glowing white, violent winds blew in from every window in the room then the prophet spoke with his hand still on Jason's head "Who are you?" Jason replied, with a voice that wasn't his "amnesium, the spirit of memory loss" the prophet questioned further "who sent you?". "I cannot say ". " what do you want with him? " " he is a part of the plan" "what plan?" "I cannot say" then the prophet ordered, "this boy does not belong to you, I command you spirit to leave his body" "is that right" the spirit said then continued "you know nothing Ezekiel" "fine" the prophet decided... "Don't say I didn't ask nicely" He held Jason's head firmly then looked him straight in the eyes, Jason felt a warm sensation all over his body and moments later the prophet was standing face to face with the spirit amnesium inside Jason's mind. He stretched his hand at him and said "begone!" as pure white energy burst from his hands and engulfed the spirit incinerating him, coming back from Jason's mind and into himself he said to everyone "it's done". Jason fell backwards into a deep sleep . "when he wakes up tomorrow he will remember all of you." the prophet told them. "I Don't know how to thank you Mr Ezekiel" Jason's father was saying but the prophet cut him off saying "Don't mention it, am glad I could help" then he left. The doctor with great effort convinced Jason's parents to go home and get some rest, assuring them Jason would be discharged tomorrow. Elera would not have it though, she insisted on staying by him till he woke up.


Jason was dreaming of a beautiful, peaceful paradise. as he lay on bare grass with Elera at his side admiring the beauty of everything around him , the hooded figure from before emerged slowly from the ground, but this time he looked different: he was incomplete and disintegrating fast. he pulled back his Hood to reveal a face that has been disfigured beyond recognition he laughed painfully when he saw the look on Jason's face
"That damned ezekiel got me good didn't he, no matter am done for," he said as he continued to disintegrate "I simply want to use what little amount of life force I have to show you the consequences of your actions.... Observe" he urged Jason as the beautiful world around Jason collapsed to reveal his home on fire... A great fire had engulfed his house and was reducing the storey building to ash. Jason's heart melted and all of his insides twisted in a painful knot inside him "it's just a dream" he told himself "it's not real, I am dreaming" "really" the spirit who had almost disintegrated completely said "only one way to find out then.. . WAKE UP!" the spirit yelled as he finally scattered into nothingness. Jason woke up and jumped off the bed, waking Elera who had fallen asleep at his bed side. sleepily she she asked "what's wrong Jason, it's 4 am, go back to sleep." he ignored her and ran straight for the door as he raised his hands to push the door open he felt the winds gather around his arm, then blasted the door away ripping it from its hinges, on his way downstairs he tripped over something that sent him falling five flights down the stairs but some how he did not feel any hard falling impact... It Felt as if the air, the wind had gathered below him to cushion his fall, he literally breezed past the hospital reception, when he saw that the hospital's main gate was locked his instincts told him not to stop and he didn't, as he got closer to the gate he felt air pressure gather at his feet, and he simply jumped... the winds quickly rushed under him and carried him over the gates he landed gently on the other side and then sprinted for his house... He didn't know exactly where he was going, he simply followed the wind. On the main road for some weird reason he could tell accurately exactly how fast the wind was traveling, for a more weirder reason he could run exactly as fast as the wind moved, he couldn't tell if he ran as fast as the wind or if it was carrying him that fast or if he even was the wind ... he felt the winds, the skies and any other thing that had to do with the weather in a way he had never felt it before. He zoomed past speeding cars and other vehicles, and ran straight home... On getting there he met the whole town gathered there trying to put out the fire that was consuming his house and his family in it, MOOOOOOOM! DAAAAAAAAAAAAD! NOOOO! he cried. when the people saw him they held him down preventing him from going into the fire, to kill himself... His life has just been burnt down, he thought to himself. he now had nothing to live for anymore.... he roared in tears as he remembered the threat the memory spirit made, but he is gone, how could he have done this he thought. As he continued to cry aloud He heard low rumbles of thunder... He felt rain clouds gather in the sky, but this time he knew they weren't against him but were for him, an extension of himself that shares his sorrow, as he cried rain poured down heavily accompanied by violent strong winds... A storm and somehow he knew he summoned it. It was so strong it drove the people trying to put out the fire away. He cried and cried as it rained heavily then in that one instance he looked up to the roof and saw it : two eyes that looked like they were on fire or made of fire was looking down on him with glee reflecting on them, below the eyes he could make out the silhouette of a man ... , the fire around him seemed like it was alive... Like it was breathing, up-down it went for about three times then it covered him and he was gone. The fire had gone out when morning came. He sat down alone in front of the smoking ruins of what was once his house with people who were once his family burnt to death. He heard footsteps approach from behind, "Jason?" it was Elera's voice breaking in tears, she hugged him from behind. He could feel warm tears on her cheeks "I'm sorry" she said "it's all my fault, I forced you into getting your memories back, at first I couldn't guess why you wouldn't want to remember your family and then it hit me... The spirit threatened you didn't he, I made you call his Bluff and this was the consequence, I'm really truly sorry " she cried on Jason's shoulders and held him. It's not your fault Jason thought to himself though he didn't utter a word. 'it was the man on fire, he destroyed my life, and even if it's the last thing I do : I will make him pay' but first, I must find out and understand what's happening to me he thought to himself as he turned around to hug Elera Back.

CHAPTER 4 : YEMOJA THE WATER SPIRIT.

After what happened, Elera's parents adopted Jason. He was living with Elera for three months, and through out all that time; he searched for answers to the three questions bugging his mind 1.who is the man on fire, 2. Is he (Jason) human and if he was, then what is this power he feels inside him. And 3. How can he access it, for he knew he was going to need it when he finally confronted the man on fire. For weeks he tried to call it forth but failed. He also kept it a secret from the family including Elera herself. Once she asked, "did you know you, ripped the hospital door off it's hinges?" "old wood, maybe" Jason had lied and to prevent further discussion he would feingn discomfort in talking about the night of his parent's death. Jason works for Elera's father Mr Ossai(since they were unable to further his education) in his auto repair shop. And though Mr Ossai treated Jason like a son... Jason still did not know much about him. Jason had given up on trying to access the powers he was feeling inside him until One day, Jason and Mr Ossai were coming from work, they were driving home in his car and were just over the adjoining bridge that connected their town to the city when both of his back tires blew up, Mr Ossai lost control of the stairing, their car tumbled over, went off the bridge and into the water. Few seconds later a large mystic circle appeared on the ground, and Mr Ossai with Jason at his side emerged from it. Jason breathing heavily from the obvious fear and panic he was feeling then asked Elera's father, "why aren't we dead, why aren't we drowning" and Mr Ossai replied "I saved us, simple teleportation trick, low level stuff. " Then Jason asked him "magic?" Mr Ossai corrected "sorcery, but questions later, right now we have bigger concerns" he told Jason as more mystic circle appeared from thin air all around them, soon they were surrounded by six men garbed in white and red robes wearing a crown of cowries on their heads and wrists, and a chain of locally made wooden beads around their neck. The man who came out of the mystic circle in front of them was holding a carved ivorian elephant tusk in one hand. Jason pegged him as the leader, for he exhumed an air of authority and was the only one holding the tusk. Pointing at Jason and Mr Ossai he said an incantation in yoruba and suddenly Jason was paralyzed unable to move any part of his body but his head, his whole body felt like he was a statue and only his head was alive... He turned to Mr Ossai whom though was in the same condition as Jason, was very calm. In panic Jason asked, "who are these people, what do they want?" before Mr Ossai could answer, the man with the tusk replied "we are the chief priest's enforcers, and we simply demand what is ours" "you're not getting my daughter" Mr Ossai told them.... The leader of the enforcers replied " the ancestors, have chosen her for their newest bride, you should consider this an Honour". Mr Ossai replied him "Kolawole, I told the chief priest this before, now I will tell you again... Over my dead body will I hand over my daughter to you for some baseless barbaric ritual." "baseless?" Kolawole asked "this is a ritual that has been done long before your family moved in to the town, long before the British came to our continent, the lot was casted and it fell on your family you know the consequences of failing to obey, not just on you but the whole town." "my point exactly, there is no consequence!" Elera's father told them "has there been a time when we fail to sacrifice our daughters after every seven years and something happened?" he asked. Kolawole replied "we've never failed to do it, but tradition is tradition.. There's no smoke without fire, ;there's no myth without a sliver of truth" Kolawole continued "you practically raised me Mr Ossai, and if your son was alive, he probably would have been the one you would be confronting, I consider you my father, as your son I urge you : Don't do this, surrender quietly and since you have put a cloaking spell on her, making it difficult for us to find her, tell us where she is" Mr Ossai answered "Don't make me repeat myself, I told you... Over my dead body, kola" "fine" Kolawole said... "Have it your way" he pointed the tip of the Ivory tusk on Mr Ossai's head and started chanting, veins signifying pain appeared on his forehead as his thoughts were being pried for the location of his daughter Elera.

Jason who was watching in shock and horror the whole time strained to release himself from the paralysis spell but failed. When Kolawole finished extracting the information on Elera's whereabouts forcefully from her father's mind, he stopped chanting and ordered his men to to withdraw, as they were about to, one of them asked... "what about the boy, he has heard too much, he cannot be allowed to leave. Perhaps we should alter his memory" "too much trouble, to go through for one Insignificant rat" Kolawole said "I'll just kill him" then he drew a mystic circle with the tusk he held and directed it to the water, after a few incantations he said "yemoja, I summon you accept this humble gift, I present you". A large mystic circle appeared over the river, and immediately the river began to surge, a turbulence started. Kolawole turned to Jason and said, "hope you like drowning... 'cos the official story will be that you drowned after your Tyres blew up you lost control of the vehicle, drove off the bridge and into the water." "what about Mr Ossai " Jason asked. "oh he survived, we still need him... But you must die now"

Then he leaned closer into Jason's ears and said "I'm Ossai's true spirit son, his dead son chidi was simply an intruder and so are you.... now you will surfer the same fate as him" he said as the boiling river exploded, and the waters rose ten feet high then started to assume human shape : first her hands formed then her upper body and finally the head of woman, if she wasn't made of water and didn't look absolutely terrifying, Jason would safely think she was beautiful. Her lower body was fish like, with fins, scales and tail...and a body of water connected her to the river As soon as she completed her transformation She lunged for Jason faster than humanly possible given Jason no time to react, grabbed him and dragged him into the water Taking him deeper till they reached the bottom of the river and then began to strangle him, Jason struggled to break free from her grip, but he couldn't. Water started to enter his lungs and hurt his eyes, he didn't want to close them for he knew that if he did, it would be all over. But soon he was unable to breathe, his head hurt, and he was dying. In that moment he felt it, the power... It came alive somewhere deep within, it grew in him till it worked it's way to the surface, then he understood it, what it was about. Jason felt the power of the sky at his disposal, and it was ready to help him all he had to do was ask. Before the last of his consciousness faded he concentrated on the skies and how it somehow connected to him, an extension of himself. then he whispered one word : Help.Immediately thunderclouds gathered just right above the spot in the river where he was drowning, it grew thicker and darker, lightning flashed all around it as the cloud gathered electrons from the atmosphere. Mr Ossai, Kolawole and his men watched with their mouths wide open in shock. They felt the air pressure drop, and the hairs on the back of their heads rose as a fat bolt of lightning struck the spot Jason was, sending jolts of electricity all over the river. Causing the water spirit to release Jason, who immediately swam for the surface as he came out of the water he summoned the wind to carry him out of the water, immediately the winds gathered below him, hoisted him up , and shot him straight to land. The thunder cloud followed closely behind, yemoja burst from the water again fully recovered from the shock of the first attack due to the fact that the river shielded her from it. Jason knew that Another lightning bolt would be useless because the river would protect her, so he had to come up with a way to get the river out of play. Yemoja knew that too for she never left the river and evaded every lightning attack, some times she would dematerialize into water to evade the lightning strike then formed again to continue hurling water bombs at Jason who was flying.... well to Jason it felt more like 'riding the wind' to get away from her, because he also feared getting hit by one of her water bombs for anywhere they hit, they exploded water and caused severe damage to the point of impact. As he approached land an idea came to him. While he worked on his plan Jason kept the cloud thundering at Yemoja.. Who evaded them, and soon she got frustrated playing tag with Jason and made a careless move on him and that was when Jason saw the opportunity he was waiting for.... He ordered the the thunder cloud to stop attacking, and prepare to release one more powerful lightning bolt with his thoughts, he wasn't sure the cloud would obey but it did and started gathering electrons again. Jason flew as far away as he could get from the river but near enough to make her think she could still get him, she lunged at full throttle toward Jason and immediately she got past a certain point, the body of water connecting her to the river separated from her. they couldn't go past where she was headed. Jason yelled in his thoughts NOW! and before Yemoja realized what was going on it was too little; too late. CRAAAAAAAACK! the lightning thundered powerfully as it struck Yemoja, and sent her crashing on dry ground, and continued. Lightning upon lightning thundered on Yemoja until she exploded in a giant blast of steam water that flowed back to the river never to rise again for the next 100 years. As he flew down and watched Yemoja flow back into the river Jason thought about a proverb his father always said "river no they pass im boundary" today he had put that to the test and confirmed that it was true. on the river he could have never defeated her, he had to separate her from the source of her power to stand a chance.

Overwhelmed by all he saw, a bewildered Kolawole asked Jason "just What the hell are you?!" an angry and drenched Jason with glowing white eyes replied "you plan to hurt Elera, so right now.... I'm your worst nightmare... "

CHAPTER 5 : JASON VS KOLAWOLE

The winds picked up, and formed a mini hurricane around Jason who was moving towards Kolawole and his men slowly. In fear Kolawole conjured a mystic circle that turned into a kind of portal. Speaking in yoruba he said to his men "we got what we came for let's go, we are not prepared for whatever he is." And they left. Jason ran to Mr Ossai who looked like his life force had been sucked out of him. He guessed that's what people look like when someone else messes with their mind. "common we've gotta get you to a hospital" Jason was saying when Mr Ossai grabbed him and said "didn't you hear what he said, they know where my daughter is, you have to go... Save her!" "what about you" Jason asked. "Don't worry about me, I'll be fine, get my daughter" Mr Ossai replied. As Jason took to the air, he called down "Mr Ossai! I'll get Elera.... I promise" then flew away.

Jason flew close to the clouds. He couldn't risk any one seeing him : a fullygrown human being soaring the skies like some Nigerian superman, and because he couldn't make out any one's face from the height he flew, He asked the wind to guide him to her. Few minutes later he found her with her friends taking selfies in front of a shopping mall, thank goodness, she's okay he whispered, as he swooped down to a lonely street corner close to where she was, to land... he crossed over to her and grabbed her by the arms saying "Thank God you're alright, I need you to come with me". But Elera protested "Jason what's come over you, let me go." "it's your father, he was in an accident, he was rushed to the hospital and he has asked for you" Jason lied to get her to come willingly. "what!" Elera exclaimed "why didn't you call me immediately" Jason replied "uuuh I lost my phone in the accident, I was with him, now no more questions let's go!" they stopped a taxi and boarded it.

Something did not feel right Jason told himself, as he looked around for clues of any danger. he had half expected to meet Kolawole and his men at the mall since they had left before Him. using their magical circle portal thing, they should have gotten here before him, he reasoned. but pushing his gut feeling aside he chucked it all up to good luck and got in the car. Immediately Jason sat down inside the taxi his body froze in place, he was unable to move any part of it except his head. It's a trap Jason realized... They have been here all along. They knew he would come for her, so they had laid in wait, wanting to catch him off guard and they did. "Elera get out of the car, run!" Jason yelled as he saw Kolawole and his men emerge from the crowd, but before she could say or do anything, one of them opened the door from her side of the taxi, dragged her out and dissappeard with her. The man closest to the car shot the driver two times and he died. The sound of gunshot heard by the people Caused a pandemonium in and around the mall, and pretty soon the mall and it's surroundings was deserted, leaving Jason who is trapped in a taxi alone and surrounded by men armed with machine guns. Kolawole himself stepped forward and said, "I saw you defeat a spirit, I saw you command natural forces like they were your own body, a feat that takes even the greatest sorcerers decades to achieve. Whatever you are, one thing is clear, you are trouble. And now that opportunity has presented itself again to kill you, I will not pass it up." So he ordered his men to open fire on Jason who was paralyzed in the taxi, and they did, the rain of bullets reduced the car to scrap. Jason felt over ten of them Pierce his own body, after a session of rapid firing, Kolawole walked over to confirm if he was dead. When he got close, he peeked into the vehicle and saw two glowing white eyes staring back at him in anger, thunder clouds gathered just above the car lightning flashed from it in all directions. Jason summoned the wind gathered it in front of him and used it to blow away the car door, Kolawole scampered away for safety and in that moment when he lost concentration, the paralysis spell on Jason broke, the pain of getting pierced by bullets which he didn't feel earlier due to the paralysis spell exploded in his body all at once, he staggered and fell, as he crawled out of the vehicle. He thought about how Elera yelled his name as they took her away... Making him tremble with rage which triggered the occurrence of something strange : he felt the bullets that had pierced him, slowly force their way out of his body; almost like his body was pushing them out, he looked down at himself just in time to see the bullets come out one after the other and his wounds close up few seconds later. "did you see what just happened, our guns are useless" one of Kolawole's men stated. "he's a monster" another one said, "he's a ghost" suggested another "he's a freak" "he's Micheal Jackson!" "a vampiiiiiiiire!" "Well I don't know about you guys, but I'm too young to risk my life for sh*t stuff like this.... am out of here!" Jason summoned more wild winds to encourage their discouragement, and they ran away deserting Kolawole.

Jason then turned to Kolawole who was now garbed in a full traditional battle atire, how he managed to change into that, confounded Jason but that was a worry for another time because Kolawole had already launched an attack against him: four huge balls of energy were shot at Jason who flew in different directions to avoid them, Jason found it more difficult to control the wind than lightning, so he used his hands to augment his pinpointed attacks. He swung his hand in a slant like motion against Kolawole and a gigantic wave of air pressure was blasted towards Kolawole who barely shielded himself with a protection spell. In retaliation he drew a mystic circle on the ground and three different black holes appeared in three different locations and started to suck everything into them. Jason blasted them with repeated lightning strikes, destabilizing and forcing them to close up.

Landing on the ground Jason summoned a hurricane around him again using the wind as a propellant he shot himself towards his opponent. Kolawole touched the ground with his elephant tusk and vines grew rapidly from that spot and wrapped themselves tightly all around Jason... who in defense summoned a powerful lightning that shredded every piece of vine That tried to strangle him. "this has gone on for too long, Time to end it" Said Kolawole as he drew a mystic circle on himself closed his eyes and started chanting in yoruba. And to the utter astonishment of Jason, a huge blue spectral yoruba masquerade warrior armed with a huge spectral sword Grew out of Kolawole and enveloped him. Speaking from inside the center of the huge spectral warrior which seem to Flickr every ten seconds he announced : "This is Gedoro, my ultimate power : a humongous concentration of mystical energy in the shape of a masquerade warrior, it's over for you, little boy" he told Jason as he swung his right hand, and the masquerade did the same, destroying a good portion of the mall they fought in front of. charging at Jason he let out a deafening roar.

As the spectral warrior advanced towards him, Jason summoned A mini whirlwind around him, using it, he shot himself towards the blue giant warrior.. When he got close he summoned two lightning bolts and wrapped his whole arms with them, then clashed into the huge spectral warrior , and a great battle ensued, they fought all over the mall, destroying it in the process, after a destructive struggle between the two, Jason beat down the spectral warrior, ripped it open and brought out Kolawole; threw him across the street, then flew to him as he came down on him, Jason who yelled : for killing Mr Ossai's son, for messing with his mind, for sending his daughter to her death; summoned A bolt of lightning caught it with his bare hands and was about to blast kolawole to oblivion when Kolawole seeing Jason come at him with lightning bolt in hand, something he had never seen before, howled in plea, "mercy, mercy, I beg your mercy don't kill me!" Jason who's already in the black zone as a result of grief for Elera landed in front of him still holding the lightning bolt grabbed him by the collar of his atire, raised the bolt higher to strike him with it made Kolawole... desperate to save his skin, reveal that there's still hope for Elera. "you can still save her! she's not dead yet... You still have until midnight before they sacrifice her" he said. "where is she" Jason asked. "I will take you to her, if you swear you won't kill me...." he replied "Fine" Jason agreed. "get that teleportation thing working" "I can't, the location is top secret, you can't access it by sorcery. It was rigged that way, because the elders know only sorcerers would be interested in such a location" "then how do we get there fast enough" Jason asked. "On my new car" a third voice spoke up . The familiar voice made Jason release the lightning bolt he held, Kolawole heaved a sigh of relief at that. then Jason turned to see Elera's father Mr Ossai standing by a small car. "you're alright!" Jason noted. "told you I'll be fine" "where did you get the money for a new car so fast?" Jason asked curiously. "oh I didn't buy it, I borrowed it from an unsuspecting neighbour" Mr Ossai replied "now let's get going, after seeing all this.... " he said as he looked around then continued, "I think, I've finally figured out what you are..." "what am I?"" Jason asked and Mr Ossai replied "you my boy are a Nephilim"

I'm crossing fingers that Jason, regardless of the fact that he is an offspring of the "fallen angel's", fights them tooth and nail to the end, so as to reverse their destructive vision for human kind.

CHAPTER 6 : PROJECT WINGED HUMANS



As they drove along the lonely highway heading to the secret location where Elera is to be sacrificed to the town's deity; thinking to himself that Jason had so much he needed to know and so little time to explain Mr Ossai immediately started to talk, "three years ago, on the same day, series of unexplainable events occurred all over the world, the world called it unexplainable but we the sorcerers and mystic scholars knew exactly what was going on. The Nephilims were being claimed by their celestial sires. And although it happened later than the others, after what Elera had told me and what I have seen I am certain you were claimed too. It was written in the prophecy books that this event would happen and that when it did, it would Herald the beginning of the end of the world as we know it".

"What's a Nephilim?" Jason who was uncomfortable with the thought of having a part to play in the destruction of the world, asked from the back of the car where he sat to keep an eye on Kolawole who sat in front to guide Mr Ossai to Elera's location. "Genesis 6 vs 4" Mr Ossai replied then continued... " that Bible verse talks of how a few angels, went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the Nephilims ; heroes of old, men of renown. Originally a part of their new plan to take over the universe after losing the great War in heaven and were banished to hell, the first generation Nephilims or the Giants as we in the mystics call them Were conceived on the orders of lucifer the leader of the fallen to serve their purposes on earth till he and his fallen brethren, are revived from hell. But the Giants having inherited the physical attributes of their celestial sires, grew in size :the shortest of them stood 30 ft tall, possessing strength, Power and intellect far beyond imagination, turned their backs on the fallen and ran the world themselves. They created and commanded technologies a thousand years more advanced than anything our present day thinkers can only dream of and in the process, spread untold wickedness through out the old world. their cruelty was so much that it caught the attention of the Creator, who wiped them out with the great flood.

Hundreds of years after the cleansing, PROJECT WINGED HUMANS was introduced by lucifer who still needed Nephilims for the success of his plan. "What's project winged humans" Jason asked and Mr Ossai replied "project winged humans, is the infusion of The meta genetic make up of a fallen into a human soul. They were trying to father Nephilims with the body of a human and the soul of an angel, giving them an Angel's spiritual attributes, instead of their physical ones as was the case of the Giants. They succeeded and The results were called the new generation Nephilims, that's you and everyone like you..." he said then proceeded to explain further "they sleep with earthly women, and deposit a portion of their souls into the baby as it formed in the womb. The fallen believed that The Nephilims Possessing the primordial powers of their celestial sires then limited by their weak human bodies, closed human minds and complete susception to control couldn't have been more perfect for their part in the grand scheme of things."

The discovery of this truth was a bit overwhelming for Jason but after taking all he had heard in slowly, he thought about it long and hard, then came to a conclusion confessing to Mr Ossai "I don't believe what you're saying, it's not possible, my mother was a paragon of morality.. She once forbade my aunt from ever coming to visit, simply because she had an extra marital affair. She would not easily fall in bed with someone else, even if they were an angel." then he went on "I don't know how you want to explain the things I can do but don't associate my mother with infidelity, I consider it an insult to her loving memory" he said with tears rolling down his eyes. "I know how you feel and I know your mother also, you forget we all went to the same grammar school in town... But the truth is the truth, there is no doubt that you are a Nephilim. When a fallen comes for a woman; they assume the form of that one person she loves, or her idea of the perfect partner and to your mother that might be the form of your father... They did Anything to make the women accept them because the sorcery in the conception will never work without the wholehearted acceptance of the woman they are sleeping with. Deception is what they are all about. People's feelings, loved ones even people's lives are expendable playthings to them. The only thing important to them is their plans to take over the universe. If you are useful, they use you, if you're useless, they use you anyway then kill you." Mr Ossai explained... Jason thought of how these Fallen angels have ruined his life and right then and there he decided he would never help them in any way to achieve their goal. "just one more thing: why now, after years of breeding them, why claim them now." Kolawole who had been very quiet asked. Jason wanted to know too and Mr Ossai replied "because although they were successful in the fusion of an Angel's soul in a human body they never really understood the mystery in a human being" he said then continued : "2,500 years ago, when the first new generation nephilim was born it was immediately noticeable that the Child was different from other children... He was better than his peers at everything they tested him with but when he came of age the boy was unable to access his celestial powers. Many sorcerers were called upon to rectify the problem but they failed, until a sorcerer who's very existence some still consider a myth known as Durza the shadow took over the project and as you have seen for yourself, after 2000 years he finally succeeded in solving the problem... How he did it though, remains a mystery to us all." he finished just as Kolawole told him to go off the main road and into the forest trail on their left. After driving deep into the forest for about 30 minutes Kolawole announced "Stop, we're here!" "I don't see anything " Said Jason squinting his eyes trying to see through darkness and forest trees hoping to make out an evil shrine but didn't. "you're not supposed to see it" Kolawole told him. "He is right, only initiates can see through the camouflage spell" Said Mr Ossai and Jason asked him "I suppose you can see it too" "yes, it's the Last place I would expect them to bring her." Mr Ossai confessed "they know that, and they know that you would try to save her. That's why they brought her here" Said Kolawole. Mr Ossai rummaged through his bag, brought out a small leaf and offered it to Jason who frowned from the sour taste as he chewed it. 'What's this" he asked "Coro leaf, it will help you see through the cloaking spell" Mr Ossai replied and he was right.. Because after chewing for some time Jason looked and saw a huge white marbled residential villa a few meters away from him deep in the forest!

As they approached the gates of the villa they saw two guards standing sentry. "That's Bello and Peter right" asked Mr Ossai and as Kolawole confirmed it, Mr Ossai drew a mystic circle in the air, chanted for a few seconds and called their names... Jason heard the whooshing sound of a soft breeze and immediately both guards collapsed. "Did you kill them" asked Jason "No of course not, they are barely 20, kids who don't know what they are doing... I simply put them in a deep sleep" Mr Ossai explained as the trio snuck past them and into the main building. Low security Jason noticed, they weren't expecting any trouble bad deal for them he thought as they climbed down a spirraly stair case and bust out into an open carvern underground where Jason saw Elera surrounded by over 20 people --old people-- the village elders.

All of them garbed in black and red robes, except for the one with the sacrificial knife who wore a white and red robe... The chief priest. Jason watched as the old man in white unsheath the knife then walk towards the sacrificial alter where an unconscious Elera was laid. "What have they done to her?" Jason asked Kolawole in rage but Kolawole who knew better than to answer kept quiet.

When the chief priest got to the alter The chanting of the other elders got louder and As he raised the knife to slay Elera, Jason who couldn't hold himself any more, summoned a thunder cloud in the underground cavern then jumped down from where he hid and landed in front of the priest facing him and also standing protectively over Elera. He was quickly followed by Mr Ossai who stood ready with a mystic circle on both hands ready to blast anybody else that would go near his daughter. "one more step" Jason said "and it will be your last" "Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!" the chief priest laughed, then replied him "the boy who commands lightning... My Boys told me about you, to think that we had a Nephilim in our little town. Let me ask you a question boy, would you choose one life over thousands of others simply because you care for that one life.....?" the chief priest asked Jason and he replied "the hell kind of question is that?" "the kind I had to answer once; the life of my beloved daughter in exchange for the peace and welfare of the community for another 7 years" "that's why I keep saying that what you're doing is barbaric" Mr Ossai cut in but the Chief priest fired back at them, "it's tradition, a 100 years of tradition, and you little boy no matter what you're, cannot put a stop to it" he said. Smirking Jason raised his hands towards the thundercloud above him... Summoned a lightning, caught it with his hands, turned to the priest and said "Watch me" as he smashed to pieces the sculpture of the deity they worshipped with the bolt of lightning on his hands. The chief priest yelled "nooooooooo! Do you know what you've done?!" and Jason replied "I have put an end to your horrible tradition, no sculpture, no idol, no sacrifice... Which means Elera is free". In desperation the chief priest lunged for Elera with the knife, but Jason was quick; he summoned the wind and used it to blast the chief priest backwards, "you really don't wanna do that," Jason told him. Still straining to catch his breath the priest replied "its for the greater good, I have to, before it's too late". Jason looked around at the other elders in the cavern and realized that they weren't happy about what they were doing, every single one of them except for the priest who was still frantically trying to get at the knife muttering 'before it's too late, before it's too late' then Jason said to him "you do know that you're the only one enthusiastic about killing my girlfriend right; what is it that you know about your stupid tradition, that has got you so desperate to murder an innocent girl that we are not seeing ?" he asked and The chief priest was about to reply when they heard the first BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM the whole carvern shook and rumbled, "what was that?" one of the elders asked, "feels like an earthquake" another said, "No, it feels like something, somewhere is trying to burst it's way through " Mr Ossai said as another BOOOOOOM shook the carvern violently, this time bringing most of them down to their hands and feet as they try to balance themselves after the tremor. "it's coming from under the ground" Jason observed. He looked at the elders for answers but they looked just as confused as he was, Then he looked at the chief priest who was so white with fear And muttering to himself incoherently... that's not the look for fear of the unknown Jason thought ; this old man knows exactly what he is afraid of, he knows what's coming. "what aren't you telling the rest of us" Jason asked. The chief priest looked at him and said "You've doomed us all!" BOOOOOOOOM another tremor hit, this Time as it did a mystic circle appeared on the ground and with it a huge black claw burst forth from the ground, a few seconds later another one followed, the Crack on the floor widened and a huge black creature emerged from the crevice. It stood on four limbs like an animal but it was bigger than any animal in existence... It looked like a dragon but it was without wings and it was way uglier than any dragon Jason had seen in the movies, sharp protrusions stuck out all over its body, everyone one watched in horror as the creature looked down at them with intense red eyes. "Mr Ossai..." Jason called, "get your daughter to safety" he told him. Mr Ossai nodded and quickly rushed over to Elera grabbed her and dissappeard in a mystic circle. The chief priest chuckled in amusement then said to Jason, "I see you like jokes boy... Well then I will tell you one" he said then pointed to the black creature with red eyes and said "Nigarra the beast of Hell is loose in our world again... Therez no safety, not anywhere, not for anyone" Jason looked at him, then at the beast, it's form alone resonated terror and for the first time in his entire life Jason was truly afraid, he felt fear drill their way into his bones . Taking a deep breathe, Nigarra reared it's head up and gave a bone shattering, earth rumbling, ear splitting, Terrifying : ROOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRR!!!

CHAPTER 7 : THE BEAST


The beast roared so loud, the underground carvern vibrated, making debris fall from the roof. Jason stood paralyzed in fear as he watched the beast reared and turned it's tail slashing back and forth with it, then all of a sudden it moved from where it stood, grabbed one of the elders and ripped him apart, blood splashed everywhere. The beast held up the right half of the torn body over its mouth and drank the blood that gushed out of its body. AH BLOOD.... IT'S BEEN TOO LONG, Jason heard the beast say. Surprised Jason announced "it can talk, that thing can talk!" when the beast was done with the ripped body he threw it away belched and said OLD BLOOD TASTE SOUR, I CRAVE FRESH BLOOD, he sniffed a few times then locked his gaze on Jason, AH! YOUNG BLOOD, JUST WHAT I NEED AFTER 2 CENTURIES OF IMPRISONMENT he said as he rounded on Jason who was still frozen to the spot trying to process what he was looking at. As the beast approached, the chief priest who saw Jason as their only chance of ever stopping the beast, ordered the elders to protect him, and so they sprung into action. A few of them extended their arms towards the beast, chanted for a bit and mystic circles appeared on their arms, large chains sprung from the circles and bound the beast from every direction, holding it down, "good" the chief priest commended "now that it's still weak let's seal the damn thing away again" he said and immediately three of the elders including the chief priest himself formed a loose triangle around the beast, clapped their hands together and started chanting, mystic circles appeared in front of each of them and from within those
Circle, a large red energy wall was erected that caged the beast in a triangular prison. "excellent! now all that remains is to lock it away in another realm" the chief priest told them. But as they began to cast the spell to open the portal, the beast who had completely regained it's strength smashed the energy wall to bits with its tail, YOU WILL NEVER IMPRISON ME AGAIN Jason heard the beast say as he watched him turn on the elders and began to slaughter them brutally. The chief priest grabbed Jason pushed him to the wall, said a little incantation, looked Jason in the eyes and nodded. A few seconds after the beast landed behind the chief priest and stabbed him with his claws. Jason watched in horror as three huge claws tore through the chief priest's body, raised him up and threw him away. The beast looked intensely at Jason but for some reason he couldn't see him. Though he stood right there shaking and trembling in front of him. The beast sniffed around and asked : WHERE DID THE YOUNG BLOOD GO. Giving up on looking for him. He turned away gave the room a once over scan, then bounded upstairs, outside the building and out into the open forest in search of human blood.

When Jason was sure that the beast was far away from the villa he remembered how to move again. He stepped away from the wall and walked over to where the chief priest was to see if he was still alive, for Jason thought to himself that if there was anybody that has any idea on how to stop that monster it would be him. But when he reached the chief priest he was dead. Looking at the slaughtered bodies of everyone in the carvern Jason could not help but feel a pang of guilt "what have I done?" he was asking himself when a warm, wet skeletal hand suddenly grabbed him by the heel. Jason yelped as he jumped out of his own skin in fear, trying to get away from whatever that was trying to grab him. He looked down and realized that it was the chief priest's frail hands covered in his blood "Baba!" Jason yelled 'you're still alive!" "barely and not for long" the chief priest replied. Then continued "you don't have time for questions, or self blame, you have to get out there... That's why I casted that camouflage spell on you to save you... You're are the town's best chance of surviving this" he told Jason. And Jason replied "you want me to go after that thing... After what just happened here...? Oh Sure I've thrown down with a small spirit and a low level apprentice sorcerer, but that beast is a whole different ball game.... I'm sorry but I can't, I couldn't even move a muscle when it attacked everyone here, am no hero, am a coward". "Who is saying you're a hero... 200 years ago Nigarra attacked our village for the first time, a demon from hell... It almost wiped the villagers off the face of the earth Until a brave Hunter, my great grandfather battled him and defeated him by sealing him away in another realm saving the village in the process... He... was a hero. You on the other hand let him out after I warned you not to, so that makes you stupid. But often times the stupid is used to confound the wise, you command the wind and the skies, the way I see it, you've got a better chance than anyone out there" the chief priest told him. And Jason said "There has to be another way, what about the spell that was used to seal him the first time, can't you wip up something like that again" "even if I could" the chief priest replied "would you really consent to the sacrificing of a young virgin every seven years to reinforce the spells power?" he asked. "No" Jason replied then added "but I still can't do it, I'm not brave like your ancestors" "your father was a brave man, you know" the chief priest said... And surprised Jason asked "you knew him" "I taught them in school, Orji never left his loved ones in danger no matter what he had to face, and to him the whole town were his loved ones, that's why he joined the town's police force and worked his way up to being their chief so he could protect the town better." he groaned in pain as he struggled to breathe then said, "this town was precious to him, he had a gun and he protected this town with it when they faced danger." "he always wanted me to join the force, but this is ten times The danger he protected the town from" Jason protested "and you can hold a lightning bolt" the priest shot back, as he coughed out blood "my time is up... I don't believe for a second that you can stop Nigarra. ..." he said. "wow that really boosted my moral," Jason commented sarcastically. The old man continued "but right now, if anyone can.. . It's you, little boy" he said as he coughed up blood again then breathed his last and died.

Jason was close to tears... The old man died believing he Was the only one that stood a chance against the beast. So he decided he was going to prove him right, for Elera, the town and his father he loved so much. He closed his eyes and let tears leak out for a moment as he imagined his father's face beaming proudly at him. Then somewhere far off in the forest he heard the roar of the beast, he opened his eyes, tightened his fist in resolve and went after him. Tracking him down was a piece of cake, Jason simply had to follow the trail of dead animals in the forest from the villa to the main road were he saw him galloping to the town at full speed. Jason swore that over his dead body will that creature kill anyone else, so he increased his flying thrust and before long he was flying overhead of the beast, in a bid to get his attention Jason summoned A bolt of lightning and threw it at the beast... It struck but didn't get its attention. He threw another one and it missed by an inch, a third one but it still didn't stop the beast unchanging movement toward the town, and so was a fourth lightning bolt, a fifth and a sixth but as he threw the seventh the beast flickered for a second and when the bolt was about to connect, Nigarra blurred and dissappeard. Thrown aback Jason asked himself in confusion, "where did it go" but before he had time to think of anything a shadow fell on him, when he realized what was going on it was too late... Nigarra appeared above him and smashed him downward with his hands. The winds protected Jason from the impact of the blow but the force sent him falling down with high velocity, there was a loud Boom as he crashed into the earth and dust covered everywhere. When the dust cleared, it revealed Jason standing on his feet, breathing hard but unhurt. Just before he hit the ground, he gathered enough wind around him to cushion his fall and prevent his body from smashing into hard ground. The beast landed in front of him and roared again then spoke : INTERESTING, I SMELL THE DIVINE IN YOU. YOUR KIND MADE SLAVE OF US DEMONS IN THE OLD WORLD... I AM GOING TO ENJOY RIPPING YOU APART he announced as he charged towards Jason again. Jason thought he was ready for him, but the beast proved him wrong ; he dodged the bolt of lightning that Jason threw at him, then moving at a speed of almost 180 km/h it punch Jason with its massive fist. Jason tried to block it by gathering the wind in front of him and stopping the blow but the punch was so powerful that it tore through the wind barrier Jason had created to shield himself sending him flying headlong and crashing into a building on the outskirts of town, as Jason who felt like he had just been hit by a truck lay on the debris and contemplating the meaning of life and if there was truly a heaven or a hell after death, the beast bust in through the roof, and started stomping on him with his foot, but Jason quickly shielded himself with the wind again to prevent himself from getting squished by the beast's foot, after a session of incessant stomping the beast picked up Jason, who tried blasting him with a gust of wind to free himself from the monsters grip but to no avail, shook him violently then tossed him further into town

Jason crashed into a billboard after being flung by the beast, then crashed into a moving car before landing on his back on the the main road. And Although he was surrounded by the wind which protected and prevented his body from suffering fatal injuries at the points of impact, Jason could feel his whole body exploding with pain.

Thats a freakin demon from hell, how did I let that old baba talk me into going up against something like that; he thought to himself as he heard the roar of the beast closing in on where he was. "What was that?" the town's people who had gathered around him asked. "go" Jason warned in answer as the roar of the beast grew louder, indicating that he was getting close "get out of here, it's not safe!" but they replied "you need help, you've just been hit by a truck, we have to get you to a hospital" "am fine, but please you need to go all of you or you will all die!" he warned as He struggled to his feet and tried to catch his breath.When the beast surfaced, it went straight for Jason, who was ready for him, or so he thought, for lightning was useless, the winds were useless, Jason tried attacking him with air pressure but that was also useless. The beast caught Jason and beat the hell out of him, dragged him all over town, and dealing him blows all the way, one Time he punched Jason so hard in the stomach, that his fist broke through the wind barrier he shielded himself with and punctured his gut forcing him to cough out blood mixed with his insides. so this is how I die, Jason reflected... Beaten to death by a monster from hell; bad way to go he thought. as the monster raised him up, and said BAH! DIDN'T EVEN PUT UP A FIGHT.... YOU ARE A DISSAPPOINTMENT TO YOUR KIND, I'VE LOST INTEREST IN KILLING YOU BY MY OWN HAND, GO DIE SOMEWHERE ELSE ... I'VE GOT A TOWN TO DEVOUR he announced as he tossed him with such force that he was carried halfway across town, Jason slammed into a billboard again and fell through the roof of a building, seeing the rows of chairs on his right, he realized that he had fell into an auditorium of some kind.... He tried to get up on his own but his whole body was dead with pain, he summoned the wind and asked them to raise him up. They did, he looked around properly and saw that he was in a church, and he had fell on the pulpit. He turned to look at the cross on the alter, then said to himself "not a bad way to go after all". He willed the wind to carry him to one of the seats in the auditorium so he can lay there and die. But instead of dying he began to heal, he had totally forgotten about his healing ability, he had only healed once when Kolawole's men shot him. Then he had healed much faster though, this Time the healing process was slow, probably due to the severe damage his body had taking but he healed All the same and as he did, he began to feel it. It started as a tingling sensation, he didn't notice it at first, considering it was nothing compared to the pain he was feeling but as he gradually healed, the tingling evolved into a burning sensation, and shortly afterwards he started to smoke and flames leaked off his body, he was burning and it hurts...! No matter where he ran to in the church, it was the same, when he saw the baptism pool in the church he jumped into it in a bid to cool himself but instead it got worse, he didn't find peace until he finally left the church building. When he did, the fires went out, his body returned to normal, it was as if nothing had happened. "what the hell is happening" he asked himself. He looked at the church again then a theory occurred to him. "could it be?" he asked himself as he put his hand through the door again to test his theory . Immediately he did; his hand lit up in flames, he pulled it out and his hand returned to normal. Great! he thought, the church hates me, where am I gonna Marry Elera now he was complaining when an idea came to him. "wait he told himself, if this church consider me, what I am as unacceptable, what would it think of a demon from hell.... There might be a way to stop him after all" he jubilated, "all I have to do is get him here! And Let the building take care of the rest!" but as he said that he realized it was easier said than done. In fact it was easy to say and impossible to do. He gave up that idea again but as he looked at the church, the cross on the alter in particular, another thought occurred to him, "what if I carried the church to him, or at least a piece of it.... It could work" he encouraged himself, and seeing as he was out of options he decided take his chances. Taking a deep breathe, he ran inside the church again... Immediately he caught fire, but he didn't mind, he ran straight for the cross grabbed it and wrenched free from its stand. immediately he pulled it loose, fire burst forth again at the point where he held the cross, good he thought, all the confirmation I need. he ran to the baptism pool, and dipped the cross in it for added potency, all the while still on fire, then he ran out of the church again and everything was normal again except for the cross that was still burning where he held it. He tossed it down wrapped a piece of cloth around it and picked it up again this time it didn't burn. Holding it as one would hold a javelin, Jason summoned the winds to his feet and flew to battle the beast again.

Meanwhile... Elsewhere.... A loud crashing sound came from atop a building, A little girl who was standing opposite the building with her mother, near where the crash was heard told her, "Mummy look! A monster!" the mother looked, saw Nigarra the beast and screamed, Nigarra roared back in return then jumped down in front of the mother and her child, he slashed the mother with his claws, grabbed her by the shoulder, bit into her and started feeding on her. he tossed the body aside When he was done and after seeing what happened The town descended into chaos, everyone screamed and ran for their lives as Nigarra roared and trashed everything, the little girl watched as the beast wrecked everything thing in sight, overcome with fear she took to her heels and ran for cover, spotting a parked yellow bus with two black stripes across it, she ran to it crawled under the bus and hid there. Trembling she started to recite psalm 23, as her mother had thought her to do, any time she was afraid "the LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want....... Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, th----" she faltered as she heard the loud thump of the beast landing, she looked and saw its feet, walking right beside and slowly around the bus she hid under, I CAN SMELL YOUR FEAR, LITTLE GIRL said Nigarra as he sniffed the air. "the LORD is with me, his rod and staff comfort me..... " the little girl continued as tears streamed down her eyes, PRAYING WON'T SAVE YOU! the beast told her. NOTHING WILL the beast assured as he lifted up the bus threw it away. The little girl screamed also as she saw her hiding place become exposed and the demon reared it's ugly head and jagged teeths at her. The beast raised his hands and swung it down to strike the girl, she in defense closed her eyes and covered her face to brace herself for what was about to happen to her but nothing came. She heard the beast roar loudly, felt intense heat and then there was silence, when she opened her eyes, she saw a metal cross, planted deeply in the ground, smoke rising off it. And right where the monster stood few seconds ago was a pile of smoking ash and cinders


Jason had arrived just in the nick of time, gathered the winds under his feet and waited for the right moment to present itself, for he knew that he's only got one shot at this so he wanted to make it count. When the opportunity came, Aiming for the heart.. Jason held the pointy End of the cross against the beast then used the wind to shoot himself at the beast, A loud bang was heard as the speed at which he shot himself towards the beast broke the sound barrier and created a sonic boom. Immediately The cross pierced the beast it burst into flames, and burned from the inside out till there was nothing but smoking ash and cinders left. The beast had been so engulfed in the prospect of eating a young girl, so much so that It the not notice it's impending doom till the very end. Jason walked up to the little girl, who was frightened half to death and called out "little princess?" she looked up at Jason who was smiling down at her. Extending his arms he said "it's over, you're safe now."

Jason will concur all I know, lol

So ReuEl12 tell me, just to clear my head please. Was the priest and his chanting men originally a cult or they resorted to this (annoying virgin offering) due to just fear of death by the beast?

Jason's father, was he aware of the priest's activities in connection with this "every 7 years" offering and all? I mean, him being a good civilian and all would in my understanding go against this

If you can clarify more on these on your next chapters, please do.

Still here with you.

Lalasticalala and Dominique come read please
