Its pure witchcraft. I xperience it at school, after studio we remain behind to watch a movie 'The Nun' a horrow movie, we finished, then we started gist about witchcraft and occultic stuffs. That night same nite i was press, i couldn't move a muscle, neither my eye could open or mouth. I kept calling jesus, jesus in my mind, some few seconds then i was able to move my body. I told a female friend what happened, we were in the same compound. That same nite she also experience it. So for me is pure witchcraft.. Just because we can't see the spiritual that doesn't mean it doesn't exist...

EPISODE 4
EPISODE TITLE- The contest








Samuel turn his gaze to Festus, his lips stuck between a yes and no answer..., he sigh quickly recalling he got the story from nairaland....

"Samuel, are you there..?"The caller ask after a few seconds of silence

"Yes sir.."Samuel mutter.."I mean yes sir, I wrote the story.."

"Are you sure..?"The caller ask

Samuel grunt almost inclined to end the call.."Yes sir.."

"Alright, I'll get back to you.."The caller said

Samuel didn't bother replying, instead, he ended the call and drop the phone on the bed..
"Good riddance.."He said with a hiss..

"What happened..?"Festus ask

"He's someone I sold my story to.., he's asking if I'm the one who truly wrote it.."

"And what did you say..?"

Samuel revert his gaze to him.."What kind of stupid question is that.., weren't you here when I made the call..."

"I wasn't listening.."

"What did you expect me to say.., of course I told him I'm the one who wrote the story..."

"And what did he say.?"

"He said he will get back to me.."Samuel said taking up his phone.."I'm blocking his number now..."

"Wouldn't that cause more trouble for you...., I mean you could be loosing a potential client.."

"A potential client that's about to find out I wasn't the one that wrote the story I sold to him.."

"Oh..., that could be a big problem for you.."

"It could be a big problem for us because the money I make from these stories is the same money I give to you.."

"Then pretend like the story is really yours..."

"Do you even think..., they could ask to see me.."

"They..!, who is they..?"

"Have you been listening to everything I've been saying, the man who bought the story said one of his cast read the story and she said it look like the story her younger sister wrote.."

"So you're saying in essence that agreeing to be the real writer of the story could bring them here to our house.."

Samuel hissed and shook his head..."I've never done any business in the house here cos I fear one of these days it'll bounce back to me...., so the good news is even if they find out I'm not the original author of the story.., they can't find me because they don't know where I stay..."

"Oh.., that's better, but you have to be careful with the people you deal with..., plagiarising is a serious crime.."

"Yeah.., according to people, not the law.."

"Still, be careful, I nor wan hear say dem beat you one day...."

Samuel hissed and refocus on his phone..."As long as it's bringing me money, I don't care what happens..."

"Even if it means breaking your head...?"

Samuel look askance at him and refocus on his phone....

"So afa..."Festus said leaning closer to Samuel.."Are you still giving me the money..?"








******************
"Your food..."Susan said dropping a plate of jollot rice in the stool in front of Henry..

"Is this my food..?"Henry quizzed.."But I told you I don't want to eat na."

"Abeg chop.."Susan riposte in pidgin as she crunched to the ground to eat hers.."Ona too dey form..."

Henry laugh....

"This reminds me of a friend I use to have..."Anita chimes in resting her spoon on the edge of the plate of jollot rice..."That guy can formm, he will be hungry and still be pretending not to be hungry but the moment he accepts the food, he won't take two minutes before he finishes everything....."

"Some people are like that.."Said Henry pushing the fish aside so he can take a spoonful of the rice..."But I'm not..."

"Stop pretending and eat already..."Susan cut in....."You're a guy, forming forming is not good for you.."

"I'm not forming.. "Henry replied before he burst into laughter..."The truth is, I ate at home before coming here and my stomach is still filled..."

"So I should take the food back..?"Susan ask jokingly

"Take what back.."Henry said.."No o.., I can't miss out on this sweet jollot rice..."

"But you said there's no longer space in your stomach.., I wonder where you're going to store this one.."

"I'll improvise.."Henry said and they all burst into laughter...

"You had better do that.."Anita said amidst laughter..."Else Susan won't ever cook for you again.."

Susan raise a brow at her but didn't say a word..

"That reminds me.."Henry said bringing his laughter to a pause...."I've read part of your story Tamara..., i still can't believe you're the one who wrote that beautiful story.., i got hooked from the beginning.., i must say you're really talented.."

"Thank you.."Anita said with a little blush..

"There is an advert going on.."Henry said shoving his spoon in the air..."It's about a writing contest, winner goes home with five million naira cash, a car worth two million naira, a house worth ten million naira, they'll also publish your stories, make copies and share them to various countries and it's worth three million.., all together is twenty million naira..."

"In which country are they doing that one..?"Susan ask

"Is a private company.."Henry replied..."They say it's been managed by a white man and their mission is to help writers all over the world.., it's been said they've done it in several countries and now they've brought it to nigeria to help and motivate those writers who has no help...."

Anita sigh.."So someone is just ready to give out twenty million naira just like that.."

"It's not just like that.., they're giving it to the winner.."

"We're saying the same thing.."Susan cut in..."How can someone just give out twenty million naira just like that and especially in Nigeria where people don't even read books...."

"Like I said.., I saw the advert on tv and the submission date ends 21st of this month which is monday...., I encourage you to summit one of your stories..."

Susan and Anita glance at each other, then they laughed...

"Summit what kwanu..."Anita said amidst laughter..."If it's really true something like that is happening, do you know the number of people in this country that are ready to partake in the contest..., even the likes of chimamanda and wole soyinka will participate..., there's no hope for me to win at all.."

"You have hope.."Susan said.."Maybe out of hundred persons, you'll be number 99..."

"Ahh.., 99 is good.., I'm thinking myself to be in number 1099..., very far from 3rd position let alone winner.."Anita said and burst into laughter

"Don't underestimate yourself like that.."Henry said dropping the spoon from his mouth..."You might win.."

"Oga forget underestimate..."Susan said...."If it's true, forget it, even politicians will pay for their children to win...."

"Well you never can tell..."Henry said before taking a half spoon of rice to his mouth..."Luck might shine on her..."

"My luck will come.."Anita said.."But not this luck...., this one resemble scam.."

"Of course it's a scam."Susan said..."Who pays twenty million naira to someone, how will he get his money back.., biko, this isn't big brother.."

"Even big brother take style resemble scam.."Anita said and they burst into laughter...

"Well..., it's what I saw.."Henry said..

"It's a lie please.."Susan said..."In this hard time, who wants to release that kind of money.."

"She might still try.."Henry said.."Afterall there's no harm in trying..."

"Forget that mata abeg.."Susan said.."It's never possible for someone to give out twenty million naira just like that..., kilode, the person money dey grow for tree"

"Just five million naira is cash.., the rest of it are shared into the house, the book publication and the car.."

"Henry we are saying the same thing..., it's not possible..."

"But the advert is on tv..."

Susan hissed..."Why are you talking like you don't know those TV people are paid to make the advert..., it's a scam.., maybe by the time you summit, they'll send you a text telling you you've won then they'll ask you to pay some money to claim your prize..., we've done these things before.., we're no longer falling victim..."

"Mmm..."Henry muffled dropping the spoon..."But Anita, these stories you post on nairaland.., do they pay you for it...?"

Anita sigh.."No.."

"So you're just dishing out free interesting stories..?"

Anita grit and rest the spoon on the edge of the plate...."Well, before now the MODS normally do voting every month.., the person's story that is most voted for is giving five thousand naira but what they do now is yearly voting.., I doubt it if people are even voting.."

"Yearly voting for how much..?"Susan asked taking the fish with her fingers..

"Do I even know.."Anita said picking up her spoon again..

"What if your stories gets plagiarized by someone and the person starts making money from it.."

"Exactly.."Susan interjects..."People are really wicked, they can steal her stories and make it theirs but anyone I see.., I swear we'll break our head that day.."

Henry laughed before he gulp down a bit of his glass of water..

"I'm not joking.."Susan added.."I so much hate it when someone takes something that isn't his and claim it as his..., those kind things dey para me..., people that do that, I just wish the ground can open and swallow them.., it's really so annoying.., converting someone's sweat as yours, that's the height of wickedness and evil..."

"You've said it all Susan.."Henry said.."Posting stories online especially when you're not making money from it is so not encouraged from me because many people are out there to take advantage of your hardwork of which you may not know.."

"You have no idea how many facebook groups I've seen my stories..."Anita chimes in..."They apologise whenever I confront them in their DM..."

"That's bad.., that's really bad..."Henry said taking another spoonful of the food...








******************
Samuel wipe a gleen of sweat from his face and roll over to the edge of the bed to feel the coldness of the wall against his skin.., he scratch his leg a bit before he refocus on his phone...

His gaze met the door when it creak, before it open and Festus walked in..

"Sammy guess what.."Festus said walking towards him

"What..?"Samuel queried barely raising his face to look at him...

"Look at this.."Festus said showing him a screenshot picture on his phone..

Samuel hesitates before he looked at the picture...

"It's a writing contest...."Festus spelled out..."Winner takes home twenty million naira..., Sammy 20mi....."

Samuel quickly collected the phone from him to take a closer look, after a while, he gave it back and focus back on his phone...

"Sammy you need to participate in this contest.."Festus said.."Just summit any of the stories from nairaland.."

Samuel raise his gaze to him, then he hissed..."Even a little boy will know this is a scam.."

"It's not a scam o.."Festus stated...."They've been doing the advert on TV.., people are already submitting their stories.."

"You summit na.."Samuel fling back..."Since you think it's legit, why don't you summit your story.., so you really think someone will pay you twenty million naira for ordinary story..., even clean ashawo nor near that price let alone ordinary kabu kabu story...."

"But what if it's true..."

"Then summit na.."Samuel replied brusquely.."Why are you disturbing me.., if you think someone is willing to pay you twenty million naira just like that in naija, then summit your story.."

"The person is not a Nigerian, he's a white man.."

"Then na mumu oyibo..."

"Guy I'm telling you, this thing is real.."

"Are you Seriously for real.."Samuel snapped..."This is a scam man.., don't believe everything they advertise on TV..., no body in this world, oyibo or black will pay you twenty million naira for story .., if na so dem dey pay, I for don build houses full my village, so forget this thing.."

"Sammy.., what if it's real..?"

Samuel dropped his phone and glare at him...."I go fit slap you now..."
