WRITTEN BY SOLOMON
The Old Ones...
The deer was so busy enjoying its meal; it didn’t hear the bend of my bow nor the whistling of my arrow gliding through the air towards its head. By the time the poor little thing noticed it wasn’t alone, it was too late. The arrow had hit its mark and the lovely deer was gone in seconds. I felt bad after what I just did and why I still get being pricked almost immediately after killing something still amazes me, considering the fact that I have been doing this for the last twenty years. I shrugged off the feeling as usual and slowly walked up to the dead animal. I pulled out the killing tool and wiped the blood off it before returning it to my quiver. It took me quite some time before I started the cuttings and all as the sheer beauty of the deer mesmerized me. The horns of the deer weren’t like the usual ones as this one had some peculiar curves. I wondered where I had seen such before but I just couldn't get a grip on it, and that it was particularly strange as I wasn’t the sort that forgets. Then it hit me; this was what was called the “old ones” as they were extremely rare to find and quite difficult to hunt. My dad once told me that killing any of this was the dream of any hunter. My dad was no ordinary hunter, he was the best of the best, but he was never able to kill any of these deer before his death. My joy knew no bounds as I quickly cut the animal limb by limb and carefully put the parts in my hunting bag. It was said that killing any of these deer brings good luck, though I am not a fan of superstitions and magic, but I couldn't help but hope that my wishes of having another child after my first six years ago will be finally answered. My mission for the day had been accomplished; it was time to begin the long walk back home. I headed home and that amazing feeling washed over me as I couldn’t wait to tell my beautiful wife and daughter the good news. I ran through the woods, scaring the little animals in the process. I still couldn’t believe it; I have done what no hunter has done in generations. Has it even ever been done? “yessssssss”I screamed and punched the air, tonight is going be wonderful. I soon stopped running and continued the journey home, walking. Soon, I was close to home as I could see our little apple farm, I stopped and plucked an apple, munching it and smiling as I felt like a god. But that smile soon came off my face as I noticed some weird tracks along the path to my cabin.
I followed the tracks and tried to make meaning out of it as it seems the tracks started and stopped at the farm which didn’t make any sense. I was still trying to figure out what happened there when I saw a black substance on the ground. It was tar, what could such a thing be doing around here, I wondered . I got a little nervous and ran all the way to my cabin but there was no longer a cabin as what I once called home was a shadow of itself.
My cabin had been set on fire and everything had collapsed to the ground. My bag fell off my hands as I was in shock. I left here a night ago and if my cabin was on fire, surely I would have seen the flames. Dear Spirits, what happened here? I ran quickly to see if my family was in the cabin when it was set a blazed or they were kidnapped. I silently prayed for the latter but it was not to be so, as I found my daughter burnt beyond recognition inside the cabin but her mother wasn’t beside her.
“Mellissa!!!! “ I screamed my daughter’s name but she didn’t answer as she must have passed the threshold into the underworld long ago. I didn’t know how I was supposed to react and so I covered her with my coat and went in search of her mother. I looked around the area hoping to find something that might lead me to her as she wasn’t in the cabin. I searched and searched but I couldn’t find anything until for some reason I decided to look up and to my horror, there she was, hanging from a tree. The tracks that didn’t lead to nowhere finally made sense as it was right under there she was hanged .
Tears ran down my eyes as I quickly climbed the tree to bring her down. Her eyes were wild open suggesting that she was watching something horrifying before her death, probably the fact that her daughter was being set on fire. No, it was something else as her clothes look ruffled. I pulled up her gown to discover that her trousers were ripped around her vagina. Katharina was raped before she was hanged. Who could have done this wicked thing to a harmless mother and daughter? I went back inside and carried my daughter out, placed her beside her mother. With tears flowing down my eyes, I stared at the still bodies of my last living family. In a night that was supposed to be for celebration, somehow it's now a time of grief. My luck still remains rotten.
Once again, death has come calling and yet still, I can’t seem to stop it from taking the ones I love.

CHAPTER 1 CONTINUED
" .........Ethan!! alright, that's enough shooting lessons for the day. Kieran, dinner is ready." Mother said. " But Mother , we have only just begun, besides you have been stopping me from doing any of this for the past few weeks. Please ,just an hour more, please." I pleaded with her , putting on my best good look. " No, drop that bow and get to the dining before your meal gets cold." Mother replied.
I reluntantly dropped the bow and went inside. Obviously, my plan didn't work and Father couldn't even help, just stood smiling at his wife . I washed my hands and face before sitting to eat, failure to do that usually get me some glaring from mother .
" What did you learn from today's practice?" she asked. Mother can be really annoying some times, I mean she stops me from going on with practice today and now she is asking what i learnt. I actually didn't want to answer but i knew better. Shey hated hunting , which my father does because it takes too much of his time and doesn't give room for him to be home much. She hated it so much and several times she has spoken to my father about it ,who will calmly tell her he won't change and mom will keep coming back with the same demands and the whole cycle begins again.
" I learnt how to pull the bow and how to place the arrow at the right place along the string. I haven't learnt how to release the arrow yet." I finally replied. Mother was actually happy with what i said and then asked me to tell Father about the new names of plants i learnt today. He listened attentively to all the names i pronunced , correcting me in places I erred.When I was done, Mother gave me another plate of food while Father ruffled my hair. I knew she would be very happy after what i just did. She has always wanted me to be a healer just like her but that wasn't what i wanted. I felt drawn to the woodlands but not because of the plants there but something else i can't just explain yet.
Father didn't seem his usual self tonight , he was very quiet and he looked sad. Well, I didn't have any chance to ask him what was his problem as mum kissed me and walked me to my room , after which she returned to be with her husband. " I have been enlisted to join the King's army as a foot soldier." I heard him say.
" Why would you do that, Ethan? We already talked about this and you promised you won't be going on withe this plan of yours." Mother replied quietly but i could hear the venom in her words, she was very angry.
" I did ,love but I had a change of heart. The hunting business isn't bringing much Gold as it used to anymore. I can't stand to see you and our son go sick because of limited resources. I hate to see you wearing those worn ou clothes. I...."
"....I don't care about all that, I knew all these before I decided to marry you. All I ever wanted is a happy home, not riches. Ethan, we have a son . You can't just wakeup and decide to choose your path to death. There is more to a successful home than money, please don't do this." She pleaded. " I am doing this for our son, most especially. For weeks now , I have thought of alternatives but they are none at the moment. The King desires Scultors,crafts-men, artists, healers and fair women and you know I don't fit in any of those categories. I am a plain bow-man, a hunter , rejected by his family because I wasn't born with the gift. The only place i fit in is the army. As wicked as the King is , he keeps to his word. Besides, the battle is already half won and we have Magicians and all kinds of sorcerers on our side, so I won't be doing much and I won't be away from you lot for long. Let your mind be at peace because i will surely return. " I heard Father say before they both started their noisy lovemaking.
I drifted off to sleep and woke up the next day to a home without him. I decided to look out for Mother and practically followed her everywhere she went like I could actualtually protect her. Things were going pretty normal for us until mom started getting paranoid because Father hadn't returned after four full moons. She prayed to the spirits everyday and they finally answered her prayers when the victorious army returned but he wasn't among them. We were later told that a lot of foot soldiers were lost and Ethan Carrows was among the fallen. Mother was paid his allowances and things returned to normal in the city but not in our family as shewas slowly losing her mind.
One day, I returned from the woods after getting some herbs to help with Mother's hallucinations when I found her on the floor at an odd angle. She had white substance around her mouth, I screamed and called for help and it didn't take long for the healer to tell me that my mum was dead. That was the beginning of my sorrowful life. In one season, I lost both of my parents at twelve years of age. Twenty years later, I lost my daugther and wife to unknown circumstances. It seems I have the worst luck in the world or I am just cursed, which is it? I screamed to no one in particular as I buried my fallen.
NB: I am sorry guys but I tried tagging you all but I was rewarded with a ban. .. Abeg make una no vex...

How is this possible? No, no , this can't be happening, One golden destiny is enough but two in one generation is surely an anomaly All of my years as a Wizard, I have never seen anyone born with both dimensions of the gift - sorcery and wizardry until Lucien. He was what every wizard and sorcerer strived to be. We have a way of making ourselves more powerful by putting in us what we weren't created with using despicable means.
Lucien's gifts weren't balanced when he was born. His gifts were more on the wizard side than his sorcery side and since when he discovered this, he has gone through dark paths to balance the scale, killing and harvesting souls of those born with of sorcery . He might have gone a bit too far this time as his latest victims belongs to someone exactly like him, which doesn't make any sense. If someone like Lucien was alive all these years, how come I didn't to know until now,except if his gifts were locked for reasons unknown to me. I must see Lucien quickly. ***************************************
No, this wasn't how it was supposed to go. How did Lucien find his family in the first place? His family was cloaked by me, how was Lucien able to by-pass my barrier. This is really worrisome , he must be getting more and more powerful. He must have been after Kieran's daugther since she has the gift of sorcery which she got from her father. Thank the spirits Kieran wasn't around when this happened, it could had been much worse.
" Mother, what is it? What is so important that you had to summon us at this time of the night." Claudia asked as she came into my chambers together with the remaining guardians.
" You have to find him, you have to find the one with the broken soul quickly before that evil king finds him."
" I thought his gift was locked and only a chosen supernatural occurence that only you could bring to pass could release his gift. " Dahlia asked.
" I released his gift but I didn't see that Lucien would murder his family over his persistence pursuit of power. I know I had his family cloaked and somehow he was able to find them,which means......" " .....He must have sensed Kieran's gift by now as he is currently in grief." Claudia completed my statement for me.
" Yes, he is not in control right now and his changing emotions will act like a beacon announcing his gifts to the world, something the king won't miss. We have to get to him as soon as possible. We are already at a disadvantage as he is in the other side of the kingdom , far away from here. Claudia, you will go after him and bring him here where he can be protected from Lucien."
" But why me, I am not good at field work. I am just a historian, please can't you send......" ".....There is no time for all this, get your stuff and move. I will communicate with you as you travel. In the mean time, I will keep Kieran busy." I just hope it's not too late.
NB.....Thanks guys for the comments.... Make I dey mention una small, small...... Tobadein, EbonyQueen001.....
