I kept quickly, through my long pause I listened, trying hard to access the voice of ‘God’ within the dark silent vacuum. IS THIS VOICE FOR REAL? HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE? I HAD NEVER HEARD GOD TALK. I sighed. IF YOU ARE GOD THEN WHERE AM I?
“You are in your coffin” replied the voice of God.
“Coffin?” I screamed looking around but yet saw nothing. I again ran my trembling cold hands through everything around me to confirm. Everything around felt fluffy and I felt my head resting on a pillow-like object. My eyes widen in horror as I realized that the voice of God could be telling the truth.
“What am I doing in a coffin?”
“You died” simply replied the voice
I paused, I blinked and rolled my eyes, I sniffed in the cool air, I turned my head, I moved my arms and legs, I felt perfect. In fact I felt more alive than I had ever been.
“But I don’t feel dead”
“Yes, your mortal body is dead, your spirit is alive”
THIS MUST BE AN AWARD WINNING PRANK OF THE CENTURY. HOW CAN I BE DEAD AND STILL FEEL THIS MUCH ALIVE? THIS VOICE IS A JOKE.
“I do not joke for I am the truth and light itself. Your spirit is detached from your body but yet trapped within the coffin.
“Okay” I said in a doubtful tone, and then continued “why is my spirit trapped? I thought spirits are meant to float through physical objects” I remembered ghost movies where I see spirits floating in the air like white smoke shaped in human form.
“Yes you are right, but there is a call for you, a call that wouldn’t let go of your spirit”
“It’s Bruno’s call”
“Bruno my dog?”
“Yes, its Bruno your dog, it’s calling for your help, it plea for you wouldn’t let go your spirit”.
“What does Bruno have to do with all these? And why did I see that dog in my dream?” I inquired feeling puzzled.
“It wasn’t a dream as you would want to believe, that was Bruno releasing out his body to you, and he was only trying to show you the message, the atrocities that goes on after your death. Bruno’s love for you had allowed it surrender its body for your use”
NO WONDER I FELT LIKE A DOG, BUT WAIT A MINUTE “Did you just say it wasn’t a dream?”
“It wasn’t a dream, what you saw was real”
(AYE LE O IBOSI O…AYE DORIKODO KOYE MI MO)
The voice continued “Bruno had tried many a times to caution you about the secret long affair between your wife and brother but you would most times ignore”
My memory quickly drifted into the past, into those moments were I had seen Bruno barked at me consciously. I felt the dog was trying to tell me something but I never got it message, but now it’s clear. I felt bad to had ignored Bruno’s message all along, he was a smart dog, smart enough to warn me of the evil going on around me. Smarter than I am, I must admit.
“God, I wish I had known all these while I was still alive, I wish someone had told me” I said in deep regret and with a heart yearning for revenge.
“But I did warn you” said the voice.
“No you didn’t”
“No you never did”
“Yes I did”
“I never heard you speak”
“I warned you through your conscience, I warned through the inner voice, I showed you in your dreams but all along, you ignored”
NOW I REMEMBER THAT VOICE, IT WAS CALM AND UNPERSUASIVE. THOSE AWKWARD DREAMS OF JENNIFER STABBING ME WITH A KNIFE OR PUSHING ME INTO A PIT. WHERE THESE THE SIGNS? OH MY GOD, I HAVE BEEN A FOOL FOR TOO LONG.
“But why didn’t you talk to me in clear tone just like you are doing now, it would have be more convincing” I tried to blame someone.
“Because you never came close enough to hearing my voice” said the voice.
“What do you mean? I don’t understand”
“Kenneth!” the voice called my name caringly like a concerned father ready to give a talk to a rebellious son. The voice continued “You never called me, you never prayed but yet I showed concern, I gave you the signs of the evil to come upon you but yet you ignored and never called for my help. You never gave alms to the poor, to the needy, to those who had come asking, you were greedy even to your parents but yet I gave clues of the doom to come. You sinned without remorse but yet I forgave you. Son, do you know why I had done all that?”
“No Sir” I replied as I wept regretting my past deeds, I had recalled every of my sins like they were just seconds behind. I even recalled my childhood sins. WOW!
“I did all that for the love you had shown Bruno, you gave it all that it needed and it prayed for you with every act of love and compassion you made towards it. You were good to it” the voice of God paused for a while, I thought it had gone when it came up again, the voice was louder “Now, I wish to grant you a second chance, a chance to make amends of your ways, a chance to go redeem yourself but it’s your choice to make!” the voice said before drifting away in echo, and ones again, the terror and pain and agony and silence filled my dark vacuum.
“God please come back!!!” I screamed, I felt lonely in a coffin.
BUT THEN, THERE IS A CHOICE BEFORE ME, ONE THAT I MUST MAKE WITH CAUTION. HOW CAN I GO BACK WITHOUT A HEART OF REVENGE, WITHOUT SPILLING THE BLOOD OF MY KILLERS, HOW CAN I REDEEM MY SELF WITHOUT DRAGGING BACK CRYING SOULS? THE CHOOSE LOOKS SIMPLE BUT RIGHT HERE IN MY HEART…IT’S A TOUGH ON.
I AM SURE YOU READERS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE MAGNITUDE OF WHAT LAYS THE CHOICE BEFORE ME BUT I WILL MAKE YOU, I WILL TAKE YOU BACK IN TIME, BACK SWEET MEMORY LANE.

madjune:I'm am only a sleepless thinker, a story teller. I am here to learn and grow in talent, that is why you must help point out mistakes (in precise) and not just read and condemn me to my fault. I am all ears to correction (besides, this is an unedited work and you don't expect I post this 'thing' to a paid forum...or do you?) but never the less, I will appreciate your red inks.

My first encounter with her had been in a house party organized by Lilian who was Felix new girlfriend at that time. From a corner I had sat staring at the beautiful creature who made everything around her seem irrelevant. Her coral-black hair plunged over her shoulders, she had a shapely figure more like a hour-glass covered in a glossy skin, she had a slender eye-brow, her eyelashes were velvety, her ears were sea-nymph and also had a dainty nose.
JEEZ, WHAT A DAME TO DIE FOR. And there I saw her smiled to a friend, OH GOD, DID ANYONE JUST SEE HER SHINY, HALO-WHITE TEETH?
I was shy to go meet her, approaching ladies had never been so easy for my kind of person.
AH! NOT AGAIN.
My limps went numb and my heart was hitting my chest rapidly as if it would burst. I sat there watching as she giggled to the talk of a classic looking man who had just approached her. I cursed myself for loosing such an opportunity. KENNETH YOU ARE SUCH AN IDIOT, NOW THE DAMSEL BELONGS TO SOMEONE ELSE. JUST LOOK AT YOURSELF, YOU FOOL. While I was still seated watching the classic looking man talking to the damsel, Felix and Lilian strolled out from the crowd, they both looked so exhausted. It wasn’t from the liquor nor the dance. They both had this foul smell oozing around them and I saw Felix grinning like a wicked clown and so was his girlfriend who was adjusting her mini-skirt.
NOW I GET IT BUT MUST YOU TWO BRING YOUR SEX AURA AROUND MY IGNORANT SENSES.
And right in front of me, the two of them kissed.
“Gush! Felix please, you and this your girl should go get a room” I said
Felix broke away from Lilian’s lip and turned to me “And you my brother need to get yourself a lady”.
“Yes that reminds me” started Lilian as she turned to me “Kenneth, there is this friend of mine I would love for you to meet, I’m sure she is your spec” she turned to search with her eyes into the crowd gathered in every corner of the room. She returned her face back at me looking disappointed then said “I’m sorry, I think she is here with her own guy already but I will hook you up with someone else”.
I felt somehow disappointed but I had to just put up a carefree face.
“Madam match-maker” Felix teased Lilian, “just be careful with who you hook my brother with so we don’t breed ugly looking children in the Agudas’ family.
“Trust me now” said Lilian before she got her lips covered with Felix’s
I WISH I HAD A GIRL THIS BEAUTIFUL, UNDERSTANDING AND MATURE AS LILIAN. I AM SO CONVINCED FELIX WOULD DUMP THIS ONE AGAIN LIKE HE WOULD ALWAYS DO. GOING FROM ONE PRETTY FACE TO ANOTHER. WAIT A MINUTE, DID LILIAN JUST SAID THAT THE LADY SHE HOPED FOR ME CAME WITH HER OWN MAN, I HOPE IT’S NOT WHO I THINK IT IS?”
I curiously turned to the love birds who were still kissing “Lilian, which of the ladies were you talking about”
“What do you mean?” she asked
“I mean the lady you earlier had for me, where is she?”
She turned around and pointed to that damsel who had earlier got my mind so restless.
Felix and Lilian burst into laughter seeing me smile unconsciously. Lilian inquired if I like her and I simply nodded my head without a word.
“I can still drag her down here so you guys can meet, who knows what might just follow” Lilian offered
“No please, I am not interested” I refused
“Common Ken, let Lilian help you snatch her away from her boyfriend” said Felix amidst laughter, I knew his laugh was on me and it really hurt.
I sighed heavily as I sat down there feeling like a fool, wishing I had never asked Lilian about the lady. Suddenly, the loud sound of the music came up to overshadow our conversation and everyone began to dance. Felix and his girl quickly left me as they danced their way into the crowd. I sat down there stealing quick glances at the damsel who was dancing with the man in front of her.
AHH KENNETH, YOU ARE SUCH A LOOSER. YOUR DREAM GIRL IS HAPPY WITH ANOTHER MAN.
I got encroached in envy. I sipped from my cup of wine while I still had my eyes on the damsel.
Suddenly, Felix came back to me, he leaned towards my ear and whispered an idea into it but I doubted if I could make it possible. He dashed back into the dancing crowd before I had the chance to turn it down.
I thought it over for a while and decided to embark on what appeared to be my mission-impossible. DAMN IT! I FORGOT TO ASK LILIAN FOR THAT LADY’S NAME. I needed it.
I stood up, walked to the small bar in the room and poured two glasses of wine. I picked them up as I slowly turned and took steps toward that damsel and her man. Every step towards them made my heart pound faster.
I JUST PRAY FELIX PLAN WORKS, OTHERWISE I WILL PUNCH HIM SO HARD ON HIS FACE
“Excuse me sir, I am back for my lady” I said to the man who never noticed my presence next to him until I repeated it the third time.
From the corner of a eye, I caught the shocking look on the face of the damsel who had stopped to dance and was observing me. The man ran his eyes all over me and frowned, I saw he was much older, smelt of powerful fragrance and appeared wealthy. I was sure he had bodyguards hanging around the crowds, waiting for his beckon so they pounce on me. The man appeared skeptical of my claim, he turned to the beautiful lady in front of him and asked her if she knew me.
I could swear at that moment that my spirit had left my body on its own to face the most embarrassing moment of my life. The glasses of wine were visibly shaking and my legs threatened not to hold me any longer. The lady frowned at me with her eyes searching into mine.
FELIX PLEASE WHERE ARE YOU? I NEED BACK-UP RIGHT AWAY…DO YOU COPY!!
At that point, I could no longer hear the music, rather I saw everyone twisting and moving their bodies in slow motion. There was her rapture blue eyes piercing into mine and I felt like my heart burst right behind my ribs.
All of a sudden, her voice snapped at me “And what took you so long? You don’t keep your lady waiting with a stranger” she snatched one of the glasses off my grasps.
“I am sorry” I said looking more confuse than the classic looking man beside me. The man grumble inaudibly as he withdrew into the crown with a frown on his face.
I moved closer to the damsel who kept staring at me expectantly. I wanted to say something but the words weren’t coming out.
“What took you so long?” she asked in a soothing voice.
WHAT IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?
“I don’t get it” I said looking puzzled.
“What took you so long from rescuing me from that old man?”
We burst into laughter and sipped from our cups of wine.
She stretched a hand “My name is Jennifer Osolo
I shook her hand “And my name is Kenneth, Kenneth Aguda”
We both joined in the dance and I felt my spirit rushed back to my body.
