Please hold unto this long update, I'm really sorry.

SQUARED ROOMS, ENOUGH LIGHT TO KEEP THE MUNDANE EYES ALIGHT. WATER DRIPPING INTO SINK, THE SMALL WOODEN LATCH.
FOOTSTEPS APPROACH THE DOOR, UNLOCKING THE LATCH, THE DOOR CREAKS MAKING WAY FOR THE FIGURES TO ENTER. THE INTERIOR OF A ROOM BRIGHTENED WITH THE FLICKERS FROM TWO OR THREE CANDLES, PLACED IN DIFFERENT ANGLES.
A MAN STANDS FROM THE BED, TAKING LONG STRIDES TOWARDS, EYES SQUINTED.
HE APPROACHES THE FIGURES BEFORE THE DOOR AND STANDS A FEW FEET BEFORE THEM.
"AHH", HE SIGHS IN CONTEMPT, "YOU BROUGHT THEM".
"I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISE", A FEMALE VOICE SLURS
"SO I HEARD", HE REPLIES.
THE WOMAN SHOVES THE OTHER TWO PEOPLE INTO THE ROOM AND THEY FALL AT THE MAN'S FEET. HE PICKS THEM AND HOLDS THEM UP LIKE RAG DOLLS.
"MUMMY, WHAT DOES THIS BAD MAN WANT?", LITTLE JENNY ASKS.
"I DON'T LIKE HIM MUMMY", EMMA CRIES.
THE GIRLS STRUGGLE TO FREE THEMSELVES FROM THE MAN AND HE LOOSENS HIS GRIP A LITTLE, SHAKING HIS HEAD.
"YOUR CHILDREN? WHAT KIND OF WOMAN ARE YOU?", HE ASKS IN DISGUST.
HER RED LIPS PUCKER INTO A SMILE AND SHE WALKS TOWARDS HIM, SHE PLANTS A KISS ON HIS LIPS, RUBBING HIS HEAD AT THE SAME TIME.
A TINGE OF PINK IS ADDED TO THE MAN'S DARK BROWN EYES, SIGNIFYING HIM AS HER THRALL.
SHE BENDS TO LOOK AT HER CHILDREN AS THE MAN LOOKS AHEAD IN SILENCE.
"SORRY, MY BABIES BUT MUMMY NEEDS YOUR ESSENCE AND THE LITTLE GIFTS THE GODS IMPLANTED IN YOU. I NEED IT TO RULE AGAIN AND I PROMISE TO BIRTH YOU AGAIN", SHE SHUDDERS, "IT'S A CYCLE".
SHE RUNS HER HANDS OVER THEIR LIPS, EYES SHUT, WHISPERING A SPELL. WHEN HER EYES OPEN, HER SPELL TAKES EFFECT PREVENTING THE GIRLS FROM TALKING. THEIR EMOTIONS POURING DOWN AS TEARS.
SHE STROLLS TOWARDS THE DOOR, SHE LOOKS BACK AND FLICKS HER HAND BEFORE SILENTLY DEPARTING.
THE MAN CARRY THE GIRLS AND THROW THEM ON THE BED, HE OPENS ONE OF THE DRAWER ON THE BEDSIDE TABLE AND PRODUCES A CYLINDRICAL BOTTLE WITH A GOLD CAP.
HE OPENS THE BOTTLE AND POURS THE CONTENT, BLACK DUSTY SAND AROUND THE GIRLS IN A WIDE CIRCLE AS THEY WHIMPER INTO EACH OTHERS SHOULDER. HE CREEPS TOWARDS THEM AND CLIMBS UNTO THEM.
"IT MIGHT HURT", HE SAYS, WITHOUT SHAME.
HE PULLS A BLANKET OVER THEM, AVOIDING THE CIRCLE AND BEGINNING HIS UNGODLY ACT.
CAUSING THE BEGINNING OF THE RITUAL TO OBTAIN THE GIRLS POWERS. AND THEIR VERY SOULS.
THE GIRLS SCREAMS CUT INTO THE ROOM AND THE CANDLES FLAMES INCREASES BEFORE SHUTTING OFF. A COLD MIST SWEEPS INTO THE DARKNESS OF THE ROOM.
"Hey, my babies", Miss Green cooes in delight.
"Well, well, well, look what the cat dragged in. The bitch who claims to be our mother", Jenny deapans, her hands crossed on her chest.
"I'm hurt, child", she touches her chest, feigning pain.
Jenny looks over her sister who is trying real hard not to cry.
"M, don't let her see your tears", Jenny sends, "You arenot weak, we are not weak".
" I know but", the tears came crashing down along with the pain and anger.
"Awwn Emma, honey. Are you ok?", she appears beside Emma, squatting and patting her hair.
Emma pushes her away angrily and she trips on her dress falling to the tiled, cold ground. She scowls, her golden brown eyes a thousand shade darker, she stands up, dusting her dress. Her red lips curl into a smile once again.
"I see your sister has been filling your head with lies and her bad attitude. She's always been the wolf of the family", she leans on a couch.
"Not that hard to guess", Jenny huffs beneath her breath, hugging her sister tightly.
"What do you want?", Mark asks, the boys finally making themselves known.
"Ahhh, I knew I'll be seeing your faces soon", she cackles.
"Yeah? We are done letting you have your mother and daughters moment. Cause you clearly don't have any daughters here", he says, his voice hoarse and harsh.
"I only wanted you two to know that, I have your Othuaba. And I'll torture him until you get me that information from the folder. Or you can just let him suffer while he continues haunting your dreams", she cackles loudly as the girls gasp.
A girl bounces down the staircase, her chocolate brown eyes scanning the room below, her fulani braids with pink at the ends and beads jingling behind her, a headphone around her neck. She notices the frozen maids and servants everywhere she passes, she hears the sounds of voices in the living room. She runs into the room and literally shakes in fear as she sees a woman disappear into a cloud of white.
She looks around the room, at all the occupants her eyes wide with shock.
"E-ex-x-plain", she points a shaking finger at where Miss Green once occupied.

|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 2:00pm On Nov 28, 2018|
"COME NOW, MY DARLING".
HER CURLY HAIR FALLS PAST HER SHOULDER HIDES HER FACE AS SHE PULLS HER VICTIM WITH HER. HER THRALL. THE MAN STARES AHEAD TRANSFIXED, EYES TINTED WITH PINK, GREYING HAIR AND A MUSCULAR BODY STILL LOOKING YOUNG AT AGE FIFTY PLUS.
HIS SUITCASE FALLS TO THE GROUND AS HE GETS PULLED INTO THE EMPTY BEDROOM.
SHE TURNS TO LOOK AT HIM WITH HER CROOKED SMILE ETCHED ON HER LIPS AND LETS GO OF HIS HAND.
"LIE", SHE SNEERS, POINTING TO THE GROUND.
HE OBEYS IMMEDIATELY, LYING FLAT ON THE COKD GROUND, EYES TO THE CEILING.
WHILE SHE SPRINKLES A BLACK DUSTY SAND AROUND IN A CIRCLE, SHE STRAIGHTENS UP AND COLLECTS A DAGGER FROM THE ONLY FURNITURE LEFT IN THE ROOM, A TABLE. SHE COLLECTS A SMALL CALABASH AND SITS ON THE GROUND, LEGS FOLDED IN FRONT OF THE CIRCLE.
SHE BEGINS TO WHISPER INCANTATIONS UNDER HER BREATH, HER BODY BEGINS TO SHAKE. THE INCANTATIONS GETS LOUDER, HER BODY SHAKES HARDER.
"I COME WITH A GIFT.
ACCEPT IT, OH DEATH,
AND RELEASE TO ME THE SPIRIT OF MY BELOVED
OPEN THY GATES OF SORROWS
AND LET HIM COME TO ME
RECEIVE TWO SOULS FOR HIS OWN
TWO BLESSED SOULS
TWO SOULS OF GODS
BLESSED BY HIM ON THE THRONE
BLESSED BY ALL
RECEIVE IT NOW!!!
AS AN OFFERING. "
THE WALL BEHIND SHIFTS REVEALING THE BULKY MAN COVERED WITH SWEAT IN THE OTHER ROOM, THE BOTH CHILDREN SLUNG ON EACH SHOULDER AND A BOTTLE IN HIS LEFT HAND. HE ENTERS THE ROOM AND DROPS THE BODIES, NEXT TO HER, BARELY BREATHING, EYES SHUT.
HE STANDS BACK AND WATCHES.
SHE PICKS UP THE KNIFE AND CUTS HER RIGHT PALM, SHE POURS TEN DROPS OF ICHOR INTO THE CALABASH THEN SHE LICKS PALM AND THE WOUND CLOSES UP. SHE DIPS A FINGER INTO THE CALABASH AND DRAWS A PENTAGON ON LITTLE JENNY'S HEAD.
AS SOON AS THE BLOOD TOUCHES JENNY, HER EYES OPEN AND SHE SHAKES VIOLENTLY ON THE GROUND, SHE GRABS JENNY'S SHAKING HAND AND CUTS IT POURING ICHOR INTO THE CALABASH.FIVE DROPS AND SHE GOES BACK TO HER FORMER SELF.
SHE DOES THE SAME TO LITTLE EMMA AND THE SAME HAPPENS TO HER.
SHE CONTINUES HER INCATATIONS, NOW IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. SHE STOPS SUDDENLY AND GESTURES FOR THE OTHER MAN TO STEP FORWARD, HE DOES AS TOLD AND PUTS THE BOTTLE INTO HER HAND.
SHE UNCOVERS THE CAP AND A HOWL COMES FROM IT BEFORE A MIST OF RED AND WHITE SWIRL IN THE AIR.
SHE CACKLES WILDLY AT THE MIST AND POINTS AT THE MAN LYING STILL BEFORE HER.
WIND HOWLS AND THE PLACE VBRATES.
THE DIFFERNT COLOURED MIST DANCES AROUND EACH OTHER WILDLY, AIR SPIRALLY.
THE RUMBLING OF THE EARTH COULD BE HEARD FROM THE DISTANCE, HIGH AND SPONTANEOUS. IT DRAWS TO THEM LIKE A NAIL TO MAGNET.
WHISPERS OF WIND, DOORS FLY OPEN, WINDOWS GRAVITATE OUT OF POSITION.
THE WHITE AND RED MIST TWIST AROUND EACH OTHER BRINGING WITH IT A SHY LIGHT.
BRIGHTER, BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER THE LIGHT GOT.
EVERYRING HALTS AND THE HUGE BURLY MAN FALLS TO HIS DEATH.
THE BOTH MIST TWIST AND EMERGE CAUSING A LIGHT AS INTENSE AS THE SUN. GRADUALLY IT GOT STRONGER.
IN ONE SWIFT MOVE IT FORMS A BALL AND JUMPS INTO THE MAN LYING WITHIN THE CIRCLE MOUTH'S, HE SWALLOWS QUICKLY IN HIS LYING STATE.
HIS EYES ROLL BACK INTO HIS HEAD AND THE PLACE QUIETENS.
THE WOMAN JUMPS INTO THE CIRCLE, MUTTERING DARKLY UNDER HER BREATH. SHE GOES BACK TO THE CHILDREN STILL STRUGGLING TO STAY ALIVE AND PIERCES THEIR HEARTS, ONE AFTER THE OTHER.
A TEAR SLPS DOWN BOTH THEIR EYES AS THEY LET OUT THEIR LAST BREATHES AND SLUMP INTO THE COLD HANDS OF DEATH.
THE MAN GASPS AND SHE RUSHES TO HIS SIDE AND SLIDES THE SAME DAGGER INTO HIS CHEST, HIS BODY GROWS COLD.
SHE SLIDES AWAY FROM ALL THE DEATH BODIES, TEARS ROLLING FROM HER EYES, HER BACK TO THE WALL AND HEAD BETWEEN HER LEGS.
THE CHILDREN'S EYES OPEN AND THEY LET OUT AN UNEARTLY SCREAM WHICH STARTLES HER BEFORE GOING BACK TO THE DEAD.
SHE WATCHES AS THE MAN'S BODY BEGINS TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY, SHE RUSHES TO HIS SIDE AS WHITE FOAM BLEEDS OUT OF HIS MOUTH, SHE CLOSES HER EYES AND PLACES IT ON HIS CHEST, INCANTATIONS FLYING FROM HER MOUTH.
THIS GOES ON FOR SOME MINUTES BEFIRE HE STOPS. SHE RAISES HER HEAD TO MEET DARK COCOA EYES STARING BACK AT HER.
"OH MY DARLING, NKUTLU", HE SITS UPRIGHT AND HUGS HER. "YOU DID IT. AGAIN".
SHE SMILES AND MELTS INTO HIS HUG.
"Uh... We're... Uh...", Jenny stutters, "Learning magic", she blurts.
"Yh, Amamda. We have to do it for uh... A project?", Seun adds.
The others nod in agreement.
"She was helping us, teaching us to use magic smoke to disappear", Emma adds.
"Hey, sissy. You haven't had breakfast, I'll tell the cook to make you something", Mark tries to squirm away but he stops when she replies.
"I woulda believed you all. Trust me, it was a really believable one", she looks at them and they sigh in relief.
"But... ", she drawls.
"But what?", Emma fidgets.
"I'll love to know why your magic teacher has being messing with my dreams".
"Huh?", Jenny utters.
"Yes", Amanda hisses, "I've being seeing her in my dreams as soon as I stepped into Nigeria".

|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by Nobody: 2:25pm On Nov 28, 2018|

FayBrown:ohh thank you for the update and my welcome sweetheart now huh huh huh as i was saying who among you that is sitting on my chair vacate now i won't warn you again i'm the only one that can sit beside my lovely FayBrown
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by Fazemood(m): 3:48pm On Nov 28, 2018|
Okay, the update is here.
Now question is, who was resurrected? And also the confrontation of miss. Green, was it at Emma's house or at Seun's? Because at first it sounded like it was at Emma's, now this update shows that it is at Seun's apartment.
Also, how did Seun and Mark get to know about the girl's gift? Who explained the whole thing to them?
The new character who I guess is related to Seun and Mark, how is she related to the mystery of this tale? Why is she dreaming of miss. Green? Is there a secret in Seun's family that triggered this reaction?
Pls Faybrown, do explain cuz to me there are many irregularities and loopholes that needs fixing and filling up.
Thanks dear for the update, you are doing a good job.
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 5:55pm On Nov 28, 2018|
This is my answer to Fazemood's question.
I feel like everyone needs to know this.
First every update from chapter eight downwards happened in Seun's house.
Secondly I explained how the guys found out. Also in chapter eight. Where Emma tells Jenny that Mark had memories coming back to him when he held her hand when she was under the moon's influence.
Same thing also happened to Seun.
I'll go back and modify chaper eight so everyone will understand better.
And everything concerning the new character and Mark and Seun will be unraveling bit by bit.
I'm modifying chapter eight so please read it.
I know, again... Please do.
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 5:58pm On Nov 28, 2018|
Abeg whoever is on his seat better shift for him oh...
Please re-read chapter eight, I'm modifying it.
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 5:58pm On Nov 28, 2018|
I'm modifying chapter eight.
Please re-read it.
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by Nobody: 7:24pm On Nov 28, 2018|
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by Fazemood(m): 10:10am On Nov 30, 2018|
With the modified episode 8, it is clear to me now. Nice work girl!
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 5:21pm On Dec 03, 2018|
I listen as everyone ramble on more lies to tell me.
No answer. Still rambling.
I hiss and roll my eyes at them which they didn't notice.
I tuck my phone into my pyjamas pocket before sliding quietly unto one one of the armchairs.
I pick up the remote from the center table and power on the TV. It doesn't take time before I start scrolling through channels.
My mind orders me to stop once I get to a news channel.
I roll my eyes at my stupidity. This time.
I don't watch news.
I'm about to change the channel when the reporter begins to give the news.
The headlines read.
TEENAGE GIRL GOES BALLISTIC OVER MOON, TEMPORARYILY TURNING PEOPLE DEAF.
They show a blurry image of the girl with her braids wildly concealing her face in a kneeling position, her head propped towards the moon as if shouting and chatting with it at the same time.
I squint my eyes at the screen, tilting my head to get a better look at the face.
I shut my eyes so as to concentrate.
I feel the engines turning in my head.
I gasp as one of my dreams play in my head.
SHE SKIPS HAPPILY TOWARDS A GATE, HER OLDIES JEANS SECURED TIGHTLY WITH A BELT ON HER WAIST.
SUDDENLY SHE TURNS, LOOKING DIRECTLY AT ME.
HER EYES ARE DAMP WITH THE THICKEST OF REDS, SHE LETS OUT AN UNEARTLY SCREAM AS IF HER SOUL IS BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM HER.
I TAKE IN AGONIZING BREATHES BEFORE TURNING TO LOOK BACK AT THE GIRL, SHE HAD STOP SCREAMING.
SHE THROWS ME A SIDE GLANCE BEFORE UNLOCKING THE LATCH AND PULLING OPEN THE GATES.
Wait! Jenny! That is Jenny!
THE SCENE CHANGES AND I'M BEFORE THE HOUSE AT THE EXTREME OF THE COMPOUND, JENNY IS STANDING WITH TWO OTHER LADIES, SMILING AT ME.
I LOOK AT THE OTHER FACES...
THAT LADY THAT DISAPPEARED...
This is the first time I'm remembering any dream that has Jenny and Emma in it.
But that lady... No... She's always there.
Always in my dreams... Causing chaos...
I open my eyes and I'm back to the present, the others at looking at me then the TV.
"J-jenny, that's you", I query, pointing at the TV "God! Someone talk to me".
I cut through Jenny's answer, "The truth. I want the truth".
I crossed my hands over my chest, putting on my most serious face.
I watch as they argue with themselves.
They turn to me the same time, all their faces holding frustration.
I listen intently as they fill me in on every detail they had.
They all stare at me, half expecting me to freak out.
I stare back at them before shrugging and sitting back in my chair.
"So what your telling me is. Your mother is a goddess, actually the goddess of love and she hates you. And now she's tired of the old cycle because she wants a permanent solution to bring back her husband but still she wants to kill you but she can't...".
"At least, not right now", Jenny cuts in.
"Because you can help her figure out vital information for her to bring back her husband or will I say your dad. Whom she's obsessed with bringing back to this world and you have most of the gifts of the other gods in you. And now she has your Othu-whatever and she's threatening you", I clap for a maid and she comes running in.
She leaves and comes back with a glass of water. I motion for her to leave before I take a large gulp from the water.
"From my memories I believe there was a war in heaven with some gods turning to Nkutlu's side and she was later expelled to the earth. With her husband secured tighter in his prison", Emma explains.
"So what can you two do?", I ask, pointing at Emma and Jenny.
They didn't seem happy about having to show their powers.
Suddenly my glass which is still in my hand shakes. It continues for a while before stopping abruptly. The water dances out of the glass in swirls, it changes movements.
It forms a staircase and the water dances into a circle. It seperates into beautiful droplets and just hangs in the air.
Not one single droplet escaping and dripping to the ground. It swiftly joins back together and tumbles, doing flips before dropping into my glass.
I couldn't stop my self from clapping, I look up to see Emma blushing.
I catch Jenny closing her eyes and before I understand the temperature drops. The heat is tremendous.
Sweat pours down my skin and I look at Jenny.
Her eyes are still shut, she moves her hand around and the heat begins to fade. The air conditioner picking up.
I watch as Jenny cups her hands together and a small flame appears.
It's original orange colour, burning with intensity.
Sparks of blue, green and yellow flying around it.
It is the most unusual and beautiful sight.
She makes her hand into fist and the fire extinguishes before she opens her eyes.
"Close your mouth, Amanda", Mark instructs.
I didn't even know, my mouth was open and anyway it had the right to be open. I am awestruck by what this girls can do.
"Damn! I love you two already! So what's the plan to dave your O-o-thu-aba?".
They all look at me with bewilderment.
"What? I want to kick sime ass", I yelp.
"I love this girl", Jenny croons in delight, smiling at me.
"Why because she swears like you?", Emma admonishes with a hint of jealousy.
"Whatever", she sticks her tongue out to Emma, "We need to find that folder, find our Othuaba and stop our mother", Jenny gushes to us.
"So who's in? And Amanda you have to tell us about your dreams".
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by VincenzoZhuxu(m): 7:57pm On Dec 03, 2018|

|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by Fazemood(m): 3:54pm On Dec 04, 2018|
If I experienced that exhibition of power by those two myself, I'd freak out real big time. Damn!
Thanks for the update Fay! When are we to get anada wan
|Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 5:43pm On Dec 05, 2018|
"So your Mark's sister?
"I'm also Seun's sister", Amands grins, "With the amount of time I've spent with him after the incident. Yeah,you can call me his sister".
My ears perk up in expectation.
I turn to get a better look at Amanda in the car, propping my hand at the back of seat.
We're heading towards my house to get the folder.
"What incident?", I and Jenny ask at the same time
"Wow! You two can pass as a twin", she coughs out as the boys shoot her death glares.
"What! I thought they knew", she scoffs at the boys.
"We are a twin, donzo", Jenny fires at her.
"Dang it! Uh, I didn't know", Amanda blurts out.
"Seems like it", Jenny rolls her eyes.
I adjust akwardly at the left hand with Amanda between I and Jenny, I turn to get a better view of Amanda's face. She's pretty calm. That's new.
"Uh, what incident?", I bring up the topic again.
"It's nothing", Seun snaps from the driver's seat.
I and Jenny share a look before she replies, "Dude, chill! She's not asking you what colour of boxer you wore this morning", she pouts.
I watch as Seun squirms uncomfortably in his seat, pulling his seatbelt a time too many.
"What are they hiding?", I send to Jenny.
I see her put on a thoughful look.
"I bet it has to do with why they're back in the country", she sends.
"And why they're still in highschool, they should be in the university".
Jenny nods before looking up at Amanda.
"I bet she knows", Jenny slurs.
"Of course, she knows. She just literally just said she knew", I say, "You can be such an idiot".
And that is how my curls gets pulled by my beloved sister.
Grab the sarcasm?
I pull her hand away, glaring at her and putting ny tongue out. She drops the midle finger in my face before struggling to pull it away as Amanda makes it hard for her.
"Would you too tone it down there?", Mark inquires.
"Fvck you", Jenny hisses.
"Language, young lady", he warns.
"Yes, mom", Jenny retorts.
Mark rolls his eyes dramatically before unbuckling his seatbelt and kneeling on his seat to get a better view of our faces.
"What?", Jenny snaps.
"Your annoying", he states.
"And I want to punch you", she replies.
He turns to look at me.
"Are you okay?".
"Does she looks....", Amanda puta her inger to her head as if thinking, "Un-ok?".
"That's not a word", I shake my head, suppressing a giggle.
"As long as it keeps you dorks from making love in front of me", she physically shudders.
"What?", she snaps.
"I find that insulting".
"And we're the same age so I find it interesting", she grins at Jenny who returns the grin, "Boring dork", she points at me.
I touch my heart, feigning pain while she and Jenny rolls their eyes.
"Don't mind them", Mark butts in.
Jenny and Amanda make gagging noises and I chuckle.
"Can you please seat your ass down?", Seun tells Mark.
Mark ignores him intead resting his head on the chair and staring at me.
Leaving the car in silence.
"So what's the incident?", Jenny perks up.
"Way to ruin the mood, Jenny", Mark scoffs, taking his seat and buckling his seatbelt.
Jenny makes an attempt to bow but ends up hitting her head on Mark's seat. Earning a chuckle from Amanda, a smirk from Seun, death glares from I and Mark. And her braids come on done from it's tight down bun.
"I'm serious", she states after pushing her hair behind her face.
"She's right. We want to know and you guys already know everything about us", I add.
Silence falls in place of the once cheerful air, thick enough to cut through it with a knife.
I fiddle my fingers in anticipation and an unconscious nervous act. I spot Jenny chewing her bottom lip also an unconscious act.
Amanda sighs, I perk my head in her direction expecting answers only for silence to follow again.
Jenny slaps her hand lightly.
"What! I had to do that", she snaps.
Jenny furrows her brows in confusion, returning to chew on her bottom lip.
After more minutes Jenny hisses.
"Answers now! Or I'll freaking jump out out of the car", her hand moves to the door and my heart skips a beat.
"Ok", Mark shrugs, "Save us a bunch of words".
I glare at him as he looks in my direction and Seun shoots him another glare. He shrugs and looks away.
Seun parks at the roadside and the csr grows quiet again.
"My option is still up", Jenny hisses.
"And my affirmation is still on", Mark replies.
"Asshole", Jenny grunts.
"The door is beside you, all you have to do is pull that grey thingie and your out", Amanda throws her hand up in exasperation, trying to hide a grin.
"Oh! Thanks bitch! I now know all of you care about me", Jenny hisses.
"Jenny... Are you really gonna... ", I send.
"Of course not", she cuts in.
I sigh in relief.
"Drive, Seun. I'll tell them", Amanda says.
"No, that's not gonna happen", Mark interrupts.
"What crawled up in your ass today?", Jenny makes a disgusted face.
"What crawled up in your hair?", he retorts with a smirk.
Jenny narrows her eyes at him.
"Seun drive! Or we'll be searching for where to bury a body", Jenny warns.
Kniwing Jenny that could happen. I shudder st the thought.
Seun seems like he's weighing his options.
"Seun! Drive! Or you'll be digging two graves", Amanda frowns.
Trying to stop Jenny from snaking her around Mark's seat and choking him to death.
Seun turns the key and continues driving.
"So back when we used to stay in Nigeria, the boys here", Amamda points at the boys, "Were kidnapped".
"That was like eight year ago. The boys were kidnapped and we couldn't find them, the kidnappers didn't ask for anything. No money, no nothing, I'd given up on seeing Mark again cause back then I didn't know Seun", she looks at the both boys.
"Then oneday, a year after their kidnap, on a december I guess, they just turn up on our doorstep. All alone, Mark covered in blood and bruises. Seun in a minimal puddle of blood and a few scrapes and they faint. At the same time. Rushing them to the hospital, they had forgotten everything about the incident except for the description of a building", she shakes her head exhaustion.
"After a few weeks, I hear my dad talking with my mom about how the building was almost crumbling down with charred walls but they knew it wasn't a fire except the charred walls nothing else was burnt. Then they found about twenty men, half of them killed in a grosteque way. The other half killed with various weapons, it could be seen by the marks on them. Swords, arrow, dagger, you name it", she closes her eyes, taking a calming breath.
"We were moved out of the country to a private school for protection and the boys had become tighter, like brothers".
She sighs, happy to end the gloomy story.
I and Jenny share a sorry look and I place a comforting hand on Mark who seems to be re-living that day. He turns and smiles at me without the girls making gagging noise.
The car pulls up before our compound in no time.
We all come down front the comfort of the air con to the hot sun, I shieled my eyes before pushing open the old rickety gate.
Seun drives in and I lock the gate.
"Why! You two finally choose to come and you brought your friends", an old voice perks from the door.
We all whip our head in it's direction and see an old woman in tatterred clothes before the door.
"Mad woman", Jenny waves off.
"Demon", Amanda hisses, suddenly.
Before I could say Jack Robinson, she has the woman backed up to the wall with a knife to her throat.
