Mur: just trust me.
Me: i wont but i wont complain again because its obvious you wont let
me be till you get what you want so i will just act accordingly. (for her mind am quiet, when am alone I will run joor)
Mur: just let us reach home first then we talk.
i didnt reply i just relax on her back as the horse speed off from the
big forest to lower trees, it looks like we are getting closer to her
so called home, she make the horse stop running and started walking
slowing and as we walk we saw many people on the way carrying some
stuff on their head
Me: who are they?
Mur: they are my people.
Me: but they dont even greet you as princess.
Mur: i told you am a bastard child i dont even live with my parents,
i live with my grandma.
Me: okay oh.
Mur: just be patient we are close.
as we continue moving slowly i started seeing some small hut, we walk
for some minutes before she corner the horse to one road like that
where there is no house and the road is dark like a cursed forest with
dried trees and leaf.
She stop the horse in front of a small hut with trees surrounding the hut,
Mur: we are here.
Me: this is were you live?
Mur: not much but we manage it like that.
Me: thank god am not going to stay here for long.
Mur: i hope so too.
we climb down from the horse and she tied the horse to one tree in front of the hut, she invite me in and when i
enter inside the hut it look wider inside than outside.
Me: is it this small hut that have this two big room?
i walk in and saw everywhere neatly arranged, its just two room, one
serve as parlour while the other is where they sleep, they have small
hut in back maybe that one serve as kitchen.
Inside the room they have two bed (local bed, no foam just eagle feathers made with wood) and a two cupboard also.
I return to the parlour and sat in the only chair inside the parlour.
Me: so am listening miss Murica, how do i go back?
Mur: (she sat close to me) the question you should ask yourself is who are you?
Me: really, okay who am i?
Mur: you are Ozila and the oracle say you will be my future husband.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 5:46pm On Dec 13, 2016|
Me: your husband?
Mur: yes my husband.
Me: hahahahahahahaha ahhhhh.
Mur: whats funny?
Me: no no, everything is funny infact you they make my they laugh.
Mur: am serious.
Me: are you?
Mur: of course i am.
Me: if you are, you will be out there looking for your future husband not me.
Mur: the oracle never lie.
Me: i dont know about your oracle but as you can see am a christian
and i dont believe in oracles,.
Mur: you dont want to accept.
Me: how can i accept what i dont believe?
Mur: i will make you believe then.
Mur: i will take you to the temple, there are things you need to see there.
Me: and what are they?
Mur: when you get there you will know.
Me: okay lets go.
Mur: no not now, the place is far i need to tell my grandma that i
will be gone for a while.
Me: okay, you have any drink?
Mur: we have tea.
Me: i mean fanta or sprite.
Mur: what are they?
Me: come on , are you kidding me?
Me: oh forget.
Mur: see i get it, you were in a civilised world and i know its wrong
to bring you here but everything happened for a reason and for you to
be here is gods doing.
Me: so you mean its gods doing that i had an accident and my friend is
lying on a hospital bed now?
Mur: yes, somethings happen for the greater good of others.
Me: oh thats enough i have had enough.
Mur: dont worry very soon you will be the one asking those questions.
Me: what ever.
We heard a donkey noise outside and then Murica went out to assist her
grandma, she opened the door for her grandma, the woman is old
very old and she walk with walking stick, she came in and when she saw
me she paused and said, “Aganju”
Me: goog day mama.
Grandma: welcome Aganju.
Me: ma am not Aganju am Ozila.
Grandma: no you are Aganju.
Me: what is Aganju?
Mur: its a word from your place though i dont know the meaning, she
calls me Ayao while you Aganju, i thought you will know the meaning.
Me: i dont and i have never heard them before.
Grandma: with time you will understand, am happy you are here at least
we have little hope now.
Me: actually am not ……..
Mur: yes he is glad to be here grandma, come on take your seat let me
give you tea, am going to the temple i will be back in three days
Me: three days? Why so long?
Mur: journey to the temple will take eight hours.
Me: whaaat, then no need going again na.
Grandma: no you must go, the prophecy say Aganju is the temple.
Me: what do you mean by that?
Grandma: when you get there you will know.
Me: hmmmm okay oh since you all want me to go there, alright na lets go..
Murica prepared some hot tea for her grandma before we filled the horse
carriage up with food and water, she put some weapons too before we
started our journey to the temple, we pass the kingdom and then she
stop at the orphanage home, we came down and she offer some food to
the children there, she took me to the leader wearing white robb, the
man used his staff to bless us before we continue our journey.
Me: who is the man?
Mur: leader of the orphanage home, he use his money to take care of them.
Me: so you mean the palace dont provide anything?
Mur: the palace is in disarray since the wicked queen took over.
Me: and i guess you suppose to be the queen.
Mur: and you the king, the prophecy says only if the prince return
will i get my throne back.
Me: and you think its me.
Mur: am not thinking its you, i know its you.
Me: not me abeg.
Mur: you hurt my dream every day and night, i refuse to sleep
sometimes because all i will be seeing is you.
Me: yeah i do see you in my dreams too.
Mur: how can you explain the dream?
Me: no explanation.
Mur: come on, there is a reason for everything.
Me: not this, whats that (i point to the mark on the ground).
Mur: thats a cyclop.
Me: whats cyclop.
Mur: a one eye beast.
Me: oh good things just keep getting better, and why are you not running?.
Mur: no not yet, let the horse relax when the beast come then we will run.
Me: like seriously, you mean those big footprint are real.
Mur: there are more dangerous animals and beast here,.
Me: and you expect me to be the prince that will kill them.
Mur: they are quite easy to kill, you will see if you accept i will
teach you everything you need to know..
Me: the only lesson i will be interested in is how to throw fire cause
thats the only way i can defeat them (i said jokingly).
Mur: yes, you can throw fireball.
Me: haha let me hear word jooor.
we walk for hours upon hours, there was no danger on the way, we gist
on the way too and i must say shes a heavy talker but there is no
amount of words she can use to convice me to stay, but wait let me see
whats inside the temple first.
Mur: we are here.
The temple is big with waterflow coming from the mouthe of the temple
like a mountain, it was a beauty to behold.
We enter inside the temple that is when my eyes opened wide when i saw it.

If u reach chapter 17 u mention mhi oooooooo
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 6:11pm On Dec 16, 2016|
I opened my eyes wide when we enter the mountain through the tunnel.
"What in the name of God are they doing here?"
Mur: oh well I told you, you are the savior I hope this change your mind now.
I didn't bother listening to her again as I kept on walking and also gazing at my drawings all over the wall of the mountain.
They didn't even miss anything that will make me argue about my identity because they draw as if they were looking at me when they were drawing it, there is even one I hold Murica close to myself and I was dressed up like a prince wearing white dress with sword on my shoulder while Murica dressed up like a princess putting on a white gown with golden shoes like cinderella.
This drawings were drawn long ago I wonder who is that person that draw it, that person must be from my time because I don't believe people of old can draw so well like this.
I continue looking at the drawings on the wall while Murica followed me from behind.
Me: who draw them?
Mur: I don't know, this is how I met them too though my grandma said they were drawn by our fore fathers.
Me: this is unbelievable, they didn't even miss my hairs.
Mur: of course they won't dare, the prince drawing must be perfect.
It was really nice and cool to see myself on a wall I know nothing about, I turned and face her.
Me: now what, i've seen the pics so what do you want me to do now?
Mur: oh well I expect you to say, "okay am in, how do we begin?"
Me: you don't expect me to say that, this is just a normal drawing I don't know how they appear here but it sure won't change my mind of leaving.
Mur: I was expecting you will say that, come on follow me.
"She said and started walking inside the moutain"
Me: where are we going?
Mur: just one more test to know if you are really the one.
Me: what test is that?
Mur: don't worry, you will see it soon.
Me: hmmmm okay oh.
I followed her to the heart of the mountain, we came out from the tunnel and now we are in a place with wide space and margin, there are lights coming from the top of the moutain.
She walk to one coffin more like a coffin rock, she pushed the cover away and then I saw a clean water inside the coffin, the water looks like an anointing oil because it's slippery but the water is clean.
Me: what is this?
Mur: the oracle sword.

|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 6:12pm On Dec 16, 2016|
Me: where is the sword?
Mur: if you look deeper you will see it.
I move closer and focus my eyes on the water then I saw a white substance moving on the water like a snake, I move away and told her.
"I saw something like a golden snake moving inside the water"
Mur: yeah, that's the sword.
Me: what those it mean?
Mur: I was thinking you will answer that for me, for decades nobody has been able to bring it out, just watch me.
She walk to the coffin and insert her hand, I walk over to see what she's doing, she was trying to catch the moving snake with her bare hands but anytime she try to catch it the snake will run to the opposite direction.
Me: of course that snake is too small you definitely can't catch it, nobody can except you destroy the coffin.
Mur: no, it can't be destroyed, the prophecy says that only the one with the mark can take it and that person is you.
Me: this is crazy.
Mur: try it, you won't lose anything.
Me: what if the snake bite me?
Mur: the snake didn't bite other people that try to catch it for years why will it bite you now, come on try it please.
Me: okay and if I fail you will return me back to my place.
Mur: if you fail we will find another way to return you back to your place I promise.
Me: okay good, okay then here we go.
I raised up my shirt and then dip my right hand inside the coffin, I look inside the water I didn't see the snake again, then I started searching for it and before I know it the snake ran into my hand and bite me, I screamed and remove my hand from the horror water falling on the ground and holding my hands, Murica ran to me and saw the mark of the snake.
Mur: am sorry I didn't know this will happen.
She was saying while I was looking at the thing that came out of the water with me,.
Me: what's that?
I said pointing at the thing on the ground, Murica drop my hand and walk to the thing, she took it up.
Mur: this is the hand of the sword, "the grip" and there is a button on the pommel here, let me see.
She pressed the button of the pommel on the sword handle and a sharp sword came out from the guard of grip, shinning like sun more like a shadow of sword.
Me: holy shit.
Mur: I told you, you are the chosen one.
I stood up and walk to her, I took the sword and look at it very well, it's not even a blade more like shinning sun.
Me: I wonder if this can damage anything.
Mur: use it to cut that rock.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 6:11am On Dec 21, 2016|
I wave above the sword I didn't even touch the sword before it scattered.
Mur: so what say you now?
Me: when do we start?
She smile and ran to me, she hug me tightly and then for the first time I started feeling the warmth of her body, hmmmm I think she's beautiful because I was obsessed before I just didn't realize.
She brokeup and said.
Mur: am really glad you agree, now we will start our work.
Me: where do we start from?
"Oh well I have some friends in the forest" she was talking and also walking front and back.
"We have been on this plan for long just that they are scared to fight because no motivation, now that you are here and if they see you with the sword they will and must pick up their own sword too"
Mur: every seven days, the wicked Queen always pay homage to the people on the mountain, they take our farm products and send them, while in return they protect the Queen from anybody that want to hurt or over throw her.
Me: who lives in the mountain?
Mur: giants men from the sky,.
Me: the people I ran to when I tried to escape from you?
Mur: yes but those are not the giants, they protect the mountain and the Queen.
Me: hmmm interesting, so how do we strike?
Mur: the mountain men have thousands of men and chariots, my friends are not even up to hundred, we will need more men to strike.
Me: so what do we do?
Mur: we will start recruiting, at least other villages will like to join us because the mountain men terrorize them too, we all live in fear, only the Queen and her friends live peacefully while we are just slaves and servants to them.
Me: why did you guys let all this happen?
Mur: oh well, when my dad and mum died they left the throne for her telling her to guard and watch me grow till am old enough to take over the kingdom but instead she tagged me a barstard child and drove me away, so I ran to live with my grandma outside the village.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 6:12am On Dec 21, 2016|
Me: this is really sad, I promise to do my best to regain your kingdom.
Mur: I will hold you to your words and what do you want in return?
Me: home of course.
Mur: and home you will see after you fulfill your destiny.
Me: so can we start going now?
Mur: let's eat first, you know journey back home will take another three days.
Me: am not even hungry.
Mur: now that you have accept your destiny you will soon start asking for foods.
Me: then eat alone while I feel this sword.
I brought the sword out and press the pommel on the handle, the bright light appear and then I started swinging it around trying to learn how to fight with sword.
"I will teach you how to fight with sword" she said, eating comfortably on the ground.
Me: and who told you I don't know how to use a sword?
Mur: I don't need to be told, with the way you are handling that sword you seriously need to learn and practice.
Me: okay come and fight me I challenge you.
Mur: not now.
Me: oh you are afraid
Mur: no am not, okay then get ready.
She stood up and brought out her sword, she charge me with anger and started fighting me, she really know how to handle sword.
She beat me and try to take the sword from me but I hold firm, we started dragging it till something came out of the sword and hit the wall, the ground started shaking.
Mur: time to run.
She hold my hand as we ran out of the mountain with fast speed.
When outside I look back and saw the tunnel blocked.
Me: what's that?
Mur: I think the sword have some kind of magic strike, and I didn't even finish my food.

Evakinqz:don't even call me
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by Evakinqz: 9:33pm On Dec 22, 2016|
Bae yu won't understand, it's a long story...
Buh em gonna make it up tu yhu
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 3:43pm On Dec 24, 2016|
Me: hmmmmm so the tunnel is block now how do we get in again?
Murica: no need going back there we got what we came for already.
Me: okay so let's start going.
we stood up, walk to our carriage and started going back to the village, we ride in silence, I was thinking about how me that don't even know how to handle sword will help her defeat the Queen and bring back orderliness in the village, I don't have that kind of strength even with this magic sword, I just need to play along after all I accept her proposer already the ball is in her hands so she better make use of it well because if I fail I won't have any regrets, she dont even have any prove that she can return me to my own world.
"what are you thinking?" she asked as she saw the sad look on my face.
Murica: don't tell me that with the look on ur face something is definitely going on in that little mind of yours.
Me: my mind is not little, my mind is big abeg.
Murica: oh sorry what are you thinking then?
Me: oh well am thinking about the Queen and how to defeat the mountain men.
Murica: you don't have to be afraid when I teach you how to handle the sword you will even be afraid of yourself.
Me: afraid of myself, I hope not.
Murica: let's get home first and then we relax and rest, the next day we will go inside town to see some friends before going inside the forest to visit my friends.
Me: why don't we go and visit your friends first before going home?
Murica: because we need to rest.
Me: no time to rest I need to get home as early as possible.
Murica: slow and steady wins the race, if we rush things we wont succeed, remember I have been waiting for you for many years now.
Me: I just want everything to be over.
Murica: just be patience.
we continue gisting along the way not knowing we are already close to the forest were the one eye monster is, oh well the voice of the Cyclop brought us back to life.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 3:44pm On Dec 24, 2016|
Me: what's that?
Murica: the one eye beast of course, hold on tight.
I buckled up as Murica beckoned on the horses to move faster, the horses understand Murica very well because they increased their space and started running very fast, inside the carriage I look through the woods and saw the bush shaking, trees falling and the grasses giving way for whatever is inside there.
“The cyclop is getting closer oh” I said trying to hide my fears.
I don't know about Cyclops until now but I don't even know Cyclops exist I do watch one eyed beast movies in Auchi and I thought they are just superstition I never believed they are real, oh well here they are now chasing me to god knows were.
The Cyclop chase us all the way to the road that lead to the village but instead of Murica to follow the road she instead turn to the place she saw me going to, the evil mountain.
“What are you doing? that's not the road”
I shouted but she just kept shut and keep on running, oh well she is familiar with the roads here so maybe she knows what she's doing so it's better I let her concentrate,.
Am not even seeing the beast all I see are the bushes and trees falling, I wonder if it's a Cyclop really,
As we continue running I wanted to look back so I brought my head out of the carriage and look back unfortunately our carriage hit a bump and the part were I was raised up a little there by throwing me out of the carriage, I fell on the ground heavily romancing the ground with my body, as Murica saw me on the ground she stop the horses at once and then a mighty beast jump out of the bush and land on my front.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by Gofwane(m): 6:21pm On Dec 24, 2016|
I don't know why, but i don't enjoy this type of stories. The fiction is something else.
I like stories that are based on true life events cos i'll get the perfect picture of every scenario in the story. That's why i enjoy stories by snakie.
Nevertheless, op more grease to your elbow cos i know it is not easy to write a story.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by xaviercasmir(m): 10:21pm On Dec 24, 2016|
Gofwane:Thats why it is called "FICTION".
please don't discourage the writer ok??
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by xaviercasmir(m): 10:22pm On Dec 24, 2016|
Ride on pls!!!!!
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ritababe(f): 10:44pm On Dec 24, 2016|
it's an adventure story, not a well thought comment from someone like you, is not everyday we read about love and lust.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by Gofwane(m): 2:47am On Dec 25, 2016|
ritababe:please read that comment again. Ì wasn't speaking on behalf of everyone neither am ì criticising the op. Ì only stated the type of stories ì enjoy.
@ xaviercasmir, the above comment is also in response to your comment.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by Gofwane(m): 3:01am On Dec 25, 2016|
...please Ozila, i wasn't trying to criticise or discourage you. Heaven knows, i'm a big fan of your works.
............ What ì said was my opinion on the type of stories ì like, and ì think everyone is entitled to his or her opinion.
Like ì said in that same comment, more grease to your elbow, it isn't not easy to write a story.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by xaviercasmir(m): 7:44am On Dec 25, 2016|
Gofwane:Please dear i am not writing to discreadit you on your comment. What i mean is that the work is imaginary not a real thing.
please don'nt take offence on what i comment about your post.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by Gofwane(m): 10:20am On Dec 25, 2016|
xaviercasmir:yeah, ì know it's fiction that's why ì don't seem to enjoy them even the movies. Especially the ones about magic.
Though not all the fiction ì dislike. Those with normal daily and physical activities are cool. Eg, The devil who loved me by davidflo
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ritababe(f): 11:46am On Dec 25, 2016|
that one that cannot complete his story, two of his stories are there waiting for update since last year. He is good no doubt but he has lost the flow.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by Gofwane(m): 1:00pm On Dec 25, 2016|
ritababe:lol... but come oh, are you just gon be reading people's story without sharing your own?
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ritababe(f): 1:01pm On Dec 25, 2016|
I don't know how to write.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by xaviercasmir(m): 1:24pm On Dec 25, 2016|
Gofwane:Now you have made it clear. Thanks luv and merry xmas to you.
|Re: Murica: My River Wife by ozila(m): 7:57pm On Dec 31, 2016|
When I saw it all my body started and as I look at the one eye monster with the teeth gnashing at interval as if it's already salivating on the new meal he just caught.
I remain on the ground looking at it when arrow came from nowhere and hit the Cyclop, the Cyclop turn to Murica with anger and ran to were she is, Murica tried to dodge the Cyclop but it was too late, the Cyclop flings her away to the forest with its gigantic hand, the horses ran away and them the Cyclop turn to me again, walking to were I am while I started shifting back, I brought out my sword and stood up, I press the button and the sword appear, the Cyclop saw and laugh evil laugh, then the Cyclop stand akimbo waiting for me, the Cyclop is big, ten times taller than me where will I even strike?
The Cyclop used its finger to beckon on me to come, I remain were I was and position myself, then seeing that am not ready to strike first the Cyclop started running towards me with full force, I was afraid but I can't outrun the Cyclop so I remain there point the sword at the moving Cyclop, when it get closer he tried to punch me to the ground with his heavy hands but I bend down and roll on the ground to the other side of the road, before I regain myself the Cyclop swing his other hand, the blow took me off the ground and land me on the other side of the road, I feel weak and defeated, the Cyclop came to me and started laughing, he took my leg and started dragging me on the ground going to were I don't know,.
As the Cyclop drag me from nowhere a big stone came from the forest and hit the Cyclop on the head, the Cyclop was off balance for a minute giving me the opportunity to run, I ran inside the bush and hide behind one tree, I look at the Cyclop and saw another stone land on his head, this time the Cyclop fell on the ground dead,.
Some people came out from the bush, they dress rough like farmers and then after some seconds Murica came out too shaking them.
