[story]o.g.b.a.n.j.e (the Child Of Thunder) Chapter 1 by Hedowho(m): 1:32am On Dec 23, 2018
It was a long time ago before white men find their way into Africa. In the small village of Udum, amongst the igbos, legends, myths abounded. Amadioha son of Olisa was greatly served by Udum.

It was said that Olisa otherwise been known as Chukwu has three children
Njoku ji, Is the guardian deity of the yam for Udum people. He made their yams to be healthy that a day was made for Njoku ji to celebrate him.

Ikenga, a deity too proud for his name was always given a benefiting sacrifice. Every full moon a maiden must be sacrificed to appease Ikenga. It has always been their tradition.

The first son of Olisa, Amadioha was the strongest of them. He is represented with a white ram and his color is red. His day is afor, which is the third market day. He is considered as the gentle deity among his brothers and also the cruelest amongst them.

Ikenga has always be jealous of Amadioha and had always wished he has the powers Amadioha possesses. He went as far as his jealous would carry him to meet his father’s enemy, Ekwensu.

Together they all planned to bring the downfall of Amadioha.

One day, Amadioha didn’t know what came over him and he struck the village of Udum with thunder and lightening, if not for the intervention of his father, Olisa, the people of Udum would have been wiped out of the surface of the earth.

Doing such a thing to Udum village, the people swore never to engage anything that has to do with Amadioha.

Amadioha was soon forgotten, he became a myth that tells the story of how he nearly destroyed Udum.

In Udum village live a young couple that has been newly married.

“Chi, I hope my meal is ready because I am heavily famished”, Chi husband, Okoro said as he dropped his farm tools and said down near his sulking wife. He saw the look on her face and proceeded to asked “Chidinmma, kedu ihe ọ bụ ọzọ-what is it again?”

Okoro was a well to do farmer, he was one of the respectable people in the village, he has three barns of yam at his disposal amongst other things. In fact he was seen as one of the richest men in Udum village.

“This is two years of our marriage we have been living dị ka di na nwunye-as husband and wife, yet no fruit to show. Kedu ihe m mere Ikenga iji kwado ntaramahụhụ a- what have I done to Ikenga to deserve this punishment eh dim mu- my husband”, Chi said quietly.

Okoro shakes his head and held chi in his hands.
“I have told you we just have patient, Ikenga will give us a child if not children, we are just two years in our marriage, there are many more years to come, so don’t cry inugo?”

Chidinmma nodded her head and the smiled, her mood changing quickly.

“I am sorry I acted this way dim mu, your food is ready; let me go inside and bring it for you”.

“Okay awka ugo mu, go and bring it I am greatly famished”.

10 years Later.

A shout pierced the peaceful night of Udum.

It was coming out from Okoro huts as some of the villagers made their way to the hut of Okoro.

“It has happened again, my enemies are at work”, Okoro said to his viewers as they watched him crying hysterically. His wife Chidinmma was not left out. She was seen crying out her eyes, her dead son in her arms.
