EPISODE 15

Temptation knocking...
The supreme One was indeed merciful onto me, tho I lost my glory because of my disobedience but He was still kind enough to send an helper to me, I knew if I hadn’t come in contact with Joyce, I might have died, tho I didn’t know if it was possible for me to die, but even if I was immortal, the pain that would be acquainted to me will know no bound.

But it seems the Supreme One sent Joyce to me for a reason because of who I saw in her house, maybe it was just a way to reconnect me back with Tabitha even in my human form, but I’m done guessing what’s on the Supreme One’s mind.

He is the anchor of the boat, so anywhere He wishes to sail towards, He should sail towards it but He should not abandon me or push me into the sea.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I sat on one of the chair in the sitting room to relax and she sat opposite to me, then I heard footsteps of someone coming to where we were.

"Meet my oldest daughter” Joyce said as the person got closer to us.
I turned to look at the daughter and I almost screamed when I saw her.

She was none other than Miss Efe, I looked at her face and looked at Joyce’s own and the resemblance was striking. They looked alike, but how was that possible, I remembered that Miss Efe full name was Efe Ifedolapo Mobolaji and I was sure Mobolaji was her surname.

"Efe, meet Ben, Ben meet Efe" Joyce did the introduction for us when I wasn’t talking and Efe too wasn’t saying anything as she just stood where she was staring at me.

"Let me see you mom" Efe finally uttered leaving the scene.

"I’ll be back soon" Joyce said smiling as she followed Efe.
I knew it was because of me that Efe called Joyce, I was very curious to hear what she wanted to tell her but I knew I couldn’t hear, then I tried a trick which always work for me when I was still an angel. Its just like sending a duplicate of me to find something out while the real me will be accessing the duplicate to know what I want to know.

The duplicate will serve as a spying camera connected to me, and I will be able to see and hear what it’s seeing and hearing.

I focused my energy in order to bring the duplicate out and it worked, I controlled it to where Joyce and Efe was and I started eavesdropping on their conversation.

"Who’s that thing?" Efe asked Joyce with a curious look.

"What do you mean, are you referring a human as a thing?" Joyce replied in the normal Nigerian custom (using question to reply a question)

"How can you call that thing a human being, do you think your prank can work today?, that must be a robot and you want to fool peace and I into thinking it’s a human?” she replied smiling.

"Why do you think he’s a robot?” Joyce asked again smiling.

"Have you ever seen a human being look like that, the people that created him must have gone through many stress of creating the skin that was pasted on him ” Efe replied Joyce with a tone that depict victory, like I got your prank.

"He’s a human, a normal guy not a robot” Joyce said with a serious tone.

"Are you serious mom?” Efe asked with surprised tone.

"Yeah, I’m 100% serious, it isn’t a prank” Joyce replied her releasing the serious look.

"Jeez, I can’t believe you yet mom, how can a human look like that, even tho am American series freak, still I haven’t seen someone look like that before in any of their movie” Efe said with disbelief tone.

"That was what I also said when I met him, he’s just too handsome beyond human level, I can’t believe such a person exist on Earth, I’m still surprised till now even tho I’ve been with him more than an hour so I understand how you’re feeling” Joyce enunciated with smile.

"Wow, but with his blonde hair, crystal coloured eyeball and his complexion, I know he isn’t from Nigeria and he can’t be an half cast, not with all that characteristics, so mom, which country is he from?! Efe asked with awe.

"He refused to tell me, but his intonation when I was speaking with him was that of Nigeria, so I don’t know what to believe” Joyce replied her with uncertainty voice.

"Did you not know him before?" Efe asked her raising her voice a bit.

"No, I don’t, I just met him today, I gave him a ride when I saw him walking on the road and looked like someone who really needed the ride” Joyce replied her almost in a whisper as if she thought someone would hear her say what she just said.

"You’re unbelievable mom, you met him on the road and brought him home, so what’s your reason for bringing him home?" Efe asked with a.serious tone.

I was happy with Efe’s question, I was also curious to the reason she was helping me, as Joyce wanted to answer her, I felt someone tap me, I opened my eyes startled and my connection with my duplicate self was lost at once.

It was the maid that tapped me, she had a tray in her hand which consisted of mince pie, doughnut and Hollandia youghourt.

"I’ve been trying to wake you up since but you didn’t wake up until I tapped you..." she said dropping what was in her hand on the table.

"I’m sorry, I’m just a little bit tired" I said and she brought out a small glass table which looked like a cushion but it wasn’t a cushion, she placed it in front of me and placed the tray on it.

"Here’s the snacks madam asked me to give you” she said staring at me. It was like she wanted to bore hole into my face with her look.

I started eating what she brought and I noticed she was still there looking at me but I didn’t say anything.

She left when she heard footsteps of Joyce and Efe coming to the sitting room.

"Hope you’re enjoying yourself handsome?” Joyce asked me as they got to the sitting room and I replied yes.

"I’m Efe” Efe said moving closer to me stretching her hands towards me.

"I’m Ben” I said shaking hands with her.

"Yeah, she’s my first daughter, she’s now 28 and still single, I knew it’s her look and stature that’s deceiving her ” Joyce added smiling.

"Seriously mom!” Efe screamed irritably leaving the sitting room and I smiled.

That was when I understand what Joyce was trying to do, her mission was to matchmake me for Efe.

Joyce engaged me in some discussion about Efe, she told me how her heart was broken by her fiance four years ago, it was two month to their wedding as they’ve already gone through the introduction stage. But the guy cheated on Efe with Efe’s best friend, so the wedding was called off and ever since then, she refused to give any guy a chance.

She told me that Efe finished schooling at the tender age of sixteen and instead of her to work in one of her father’s company ,she refused to do so and went to secure a job as a teacher in one of the reputable school in Aja.

We were surprised that she was able to secure a job there at that age and without using the connection of her father.

After two years of teaching there, it was discovered that the owner of the school was a ritualist, so she had to resign from the school.

Her dad because of that incident told her that he won’t allow her to work outside his wing again but the girl wanted to be a teacher because of her love for children.
She told me that her husband jointly own a school but her husband owns the highest shares of the school so she started teaching there, and now with her
own effort, she’s made it to the post of the principal of the school while she’s also part of the owner of the school.

Her story helped me to confirm all my unanswered questions about Miss Efe.

I pretended as if I was grossly interested in her stories.

"But is Briana your surname?” I asked her when she was through with her story, and the reason I asked her was to know what’s wrong, because Efe’s surname was Mobolaji, so I wanted to know if their surname was different.

"Hell no, Briana Joyce is my name, I just love being called by the two because my surname is not English" she answered negatively.

"What’s really wrong with Nigerians, I asked her I asked her if her surname is Briana but here she’s answering what I didn’t ask her” I said to myself as I forced out a smile.

"So, what’s your surname?" I asked her again smiling.

"It’s Mobolaji, Mobolaji Briana Joyce” she answered sophisticatedly.

Then I started hearing someone running, it was like the person was running down a staircase.

"That must be my second daughter, Peace. Her sister must have told her about you” Joyce said smiling.

It wasn’t up to 20 seconds that Joyce said it that a young beautiful girl appeared, she should be of the same age with the real age of Tabitha, she was so beautiful and gorgeous, she stood in front of me and was staring at me like she has seen a precious jewel.

Joyce cleared her throat a bit in order to gain the attention of her daughter, and it worked as she stopped staring at me and went to her mother.

"Who’s that?” she asked her mother pointing at me.

Joyce smile and hit her on her forehead playfully.

"How can you be rude to my guest? Go and greet him, that’s Ben" she replied her smiling.

The girl did something that surprised me, she left her mom and came to sit by my side, she brought her face closer to mine as if she wanted to kiss me, she was looking directly into my eyeball and was smiling, suddenly she brought her palm to my face to feel it.

"Wow, so smooth and soft” that was the last thing I heard her say and what happened next was her lip was already on mine. I quickly close my mouth in order not to allow her tongue inside my mouth. I didn’t know what to do next as I felt her trying to penetrate her tongue into my mouth. I shoved her off me when it seems she isn’t going to stop.

I looked at Joyce and saw her smiling and I looked at Peace and she was also smiling, she had the expression that says that she was happy and proud of what she did.

'I don’t blame her Ben, for what she did, it took me all my strength and will not to have done the same thing since we’ve been inside the car together” Joyce said not rebuking her daughter for what she did.

"Peace, go and ask Sophia if the food is done” she said to Peace, who stood up but gave me a seductive eye before she left to deliver her mom’s message.

I was treated like a king by Joyce throughout the day, tho I ate at some minutes pass 4 in the evening, when it was dinner time, she still served me like I haven’t eaten throughout the day, but the only threat I was dealing with is Peace, she didn’t allow me rest, always sitting close to me, even at the dinner table, she sat close to me and was using her hand to massage my thigh.

Tho Efe and Joyce were also staring at me but no physical contact occur between us unlike Peace who was gluing unto me like a plague.

After dinner, I retired to the guest room at once. I connected to Tabitha to know how she was feeling and I felt that she was cool, she was normal, not happy and not sad, but it kinda felt like she was empty.

I wish I was their with her to know what’s going on through her mind that made her felt empty.

I yawned as I lay on the bed, I was very tired, and I felt my eye getting blurry, I knew it was sleep knocking on my door, the first time such will be happening since twenty years ago that have being on Earth. I slept off.

I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night when I felt a hand massaging my body.

"What?!" I exclaimed when I saw the person doing it.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Who do you think is massaging our handsome Ben...Joyce, Efe, or Peace?

EPISODE 16

And she’s in danger
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Do you know? You can only be tempted with what you like, the probability of falling for temptation when what you like or love is used as the bait is very high, But when you’re tempted with what you gat no interest for or you don’t like, the probability of falling for the temptation is very low.

I heard that Brother Luci always like to use temptation to divert people from their way of glory, but the one I witness that happened to me, I knew it wasn’t fostered by Brother Luci, it was just someone trying to fulfil her unholy desire.
Did I overcome the temptation or did I fell for it, get your answer as the story of my life continues.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night when I felt a hand massaging my body.

"What?! I exclaimed when I saw the person doing it.

"Sophia" I tried to scream her name but she quickly use her hand to cover my mouth and I was only able to muffle her name.

"Shoosh, don’t scream, you will wake everyone up” she said removing her hand from my mouth.

"What are you doing?" I asked getting up from the bed. I saw that she wearing only pant and bra.

"Why are you doing as if you don’t know what I’m doing?" she said coming to where I was, as she was moving closer to me.

I was taking steps backward, until I got to the wall and their was no place to go again.

She moved closer to me and placed her hand on my chest in a seductive way, that was when I knew that I didn’t have my shirt on again, I didn’t know how it got off.

"Please make love to me" she said rubbing my chest with her hand and taking it downward to my trouser area.

I knew the destination where her hand was headed to.

"What do you mean by me making love to you, you just met me today" I said grabbing her hand midway to stop it from going to the danger zone it was headed to.

"Please just do it, I’m still a virgin and I’ve promised myself that I am going to make sure I get disvirgin by the cutest person I meet on Earth" she said almost pleading.

"Please stop it, I can’t do it, my body is the holy vessel of the Supreme One and I can’t smear it and I’m not what you’re thinking I am” I replied her moving back to the bed, I took my shirt and wore it and sat on the bed.

Then she did something that amazed me.

She took off her bra releasing her b...bs, it was of normal size and it is fair like her complexion.

I just sat where I was sitting looking at her like a dummy, I didn’t know what to do and I saw as she started moving closer to me again, when she got to me she use her hand to push me to lay flat on the bed, then she layed on top of me. I didn’t know what to do exactly, her b....bs was directly on my chest and I felt her hand slid into my trouser, that was when my head rebooted.

I pushed her off me at once and she fell on another side of the bed and I stood up from the bed.

"Please go now before I get the attention of others!” I said angrily and she stood up from the bed and picked her bra ,wore it and headed out disappointed.

I heaved a sigh of relief as I lay back on the bed.

"I’ve not even used up to 24 hours as a human and I’m already going through this" I said to myself as I tried to sleep back.

I woke up to the sound of a melody, someone was playing keyboard and it felt like it was near the room I was. I stretched as I got off the bed and headed outside. I was surprised to see Peace, she was the one playing the keyboard, the keyboard was placed beside the guest room. I wondered how I didn’t see it when I passed there yesterday night.

She stopped playing when she saw me, then she started smiling, she stood up and came closer to me, placed her hand on my cheek again.

"Good morning Uncle Ben” she greeted me not removing her hand on my cheek, she was staring at me again like she did yesterday.

"How can you be so pretty like this?" she asked rhetorically not waiting for me to answer her greeting.

She was looking at me with awe, then she started bringing her face closer to mine, I knew she was about to kiss me again, so I quickly freed myself from her.

"Is this yours?" I asked moving towards the keyboard in order to change the topic.

"Yeah” she said happily as she sat on the seat in front of the keyboard.

"It was my dad’s own but he handed it over to me before he died since I was the only who showed interest in learning it and he thought me how to play it, all what my mom and sister like to do is always listen to it being played, they must be in their room listening to it before you interrupted me” she enunciated smiling.

"Did I asked about all this you’re telling me?” I only asked it in my mind and forced out a smile.

"Do you know how to play it?” she asked focusing her gaze on me.

"Yeah, no one can compete with me in the whole of this Earth in playing it” I answered her proudly.

"What?!" I exclaimed when my answer dawn on me, how could I tell her that I knew how to play it, tho their was no one on Earth except Brother Luci who can be compare to me in playing any musical instruments or singing, but I knew if I play it and she was awe by my performance, her next mission won’t be kissing me but having sex with me.

"Brother Ben, you can lie o” she said laughing mockingly.

"What you meant is that you’re the best in playing it all over the world, your lie has impregnated me” she added laughing mockingly, she placed her hand on her back and pushed her tommy out in a pregnant woman posture in order to mock me.

What she did hit the nail on my head with her words, I suddenly wish to show to her that I’m not lying, and make her regret mocking me.

"Get up" I said to her in a serious tone and she did while I occupied the seat.

I started playing the tone of my best song, it was an heavenly song and I don’t know the translation in English, I could only sing it in Heaven language.

As I was playing it, I lost myself in the tone and closed my eye as I started singing the song. I didn’t know how long I closed my eye and sang but when I was finally through with it and hit the last key and opened my eye, I saw the three ladies and they started clapping and shouting.

"Wow, I can’t believe I just heard the most beautiful voice on Earth and the grand master of keyboardist playing keyboard now, I don’t think I will be able to get enough of this voice” Joyce said in awe, her behaviour said it all, she really enjoyed it.

"Are you sure you’re a human being?” Efe said looking at me with a suspicious eye and I smiled.
I looked at Peace and saw that her mouth was opened and her eye was widely opened without blinking, she looked like she had turned to a statue. When Joyce also noticed her, she tapped her and she startling respond to her.

"Oh my God, I’m sorry for underrating you Bro. Ben, this is the most beautiful voice I’ve ever heard and I don’t think anyone can challenge your skill in playing the keyboard” Peace said looking at me with the eye that depicted that she wished to kiss me.

"But is that your country’s language you were using to sing the song you sang” Joyce asked me and I replied yes.

"Okay, which country do you hail from and you must answer me now, that cute face of yours can’t stop me from getting my answer from you now” she asked with a serious tone.

I was placed in a tight spot, she looked serious and I can’t tell them that I was from Heaven, they won’t believe me and I can’t lie to them. It’s a sin.

When I ran out of idea of what I could do, I smiled cutely displaying my teeth in the process.

"Mom, I must kiss Bro. Ben, I can’t withstand this again” Peace said moving closer to me and quickly ran away and she followed me while Joyce and Efe bursted into laughter.

The day was filled with fun, after Joyce gave me a new toothbrush, I brushed my teeth, took my bath and wore one out of the clothes we got from the boutique. We ate slice bread and egg coupled with hot tea as breakfast.

Sophia couldn’t make direct eye contact with me because of what transpired between us. Joyce totally forgot the about her question after Peace chased after me, Peace was really keen on kissing me but I restrained her from doing so, she only agreed not to by making me promise to go out with her and pretend to be her boyfriend.

That was still okay than me kissing her so I concurred.

Efe was the hardest among them, she was acting like she wasn’t swayed by my beauty but I caught her many times stealing a glance at me and every time I caught her she will quickly pretend like she wasn’t looking at me.

After breakfast, Joyce went out, I didn’t know where because I didn’t bother to ask. I spent most of the day on the keyboard, Peace wouldn’t just leave me alone, she threatened to kiss me if I stop playing it, she said she loved it so much so all I did was just follow her order. I also taught her some skills on how to play it. But she was really cool and jovial and loved to play, apart from her threatening to kiss me, she is good.

I asked her why Efe didn’t go to her working place and she told me dat she’s on leave. She asked me if I have eye for her and I told her no, her reply after that really sacred me.

"God save you, I’ll just rape you and make sure I get pregnant before I free you, then you won’t have any choice than to marry me" she said in a mixed tone, I couldn’t tell if she was serious or joking with her reply, so I just smirked.

After she released me from playing the keyboard, we played and watch movie, she made me forgot about my present travail and I really enjoyed her company.
When it was 5 in the evening, she changed her dress and asked me to change mine I asked her why I should and she told me to remember what I promised her.
That was when I remembered about her threatening me to promise to go out with her and pretend to be her boyfriend.
I told her I don’t need to change my cloth and she said she’s okay with it.
She was very happy walking by my side, even tho she showed me her two awesome cars but she still forced me to trek with her, I knew it was part of her plan to show me off to the people.

We started walking from their house, it was situated deep inside the estate, I don’t know the estate but I know we’re walking inside an estate because of how everything was silent and how every house was fenced and all of them are beautiful.

We were chatting as we walked through the silent road. When we were about to get out of the estate, she locked arms with me, I looked at her and she smiled naughtily at me. She was getting what she wanted as everyone was staring at us. I knew I was the one gaining all the attention but she was the one enjoying it.

After walking for like 1 & ½ hours she got completely exhausted.
She saw a restaurant and she asked us to rest there before we take a cab home. I agreed and we went there, we sat near the place where we could see what’s going on outside clearly, it was already getting dark and she doesn’t seem to be standing up soon as we munched on the mince pie and ice cream she ordered for us.

Suddenly I saw an evil spirit walking outside looking for someone to possess, it was scrutinizing through the people passing beside it looking for a conducive abode to enter. I was surprised because I didn’t know I could still see through the spiritual realm.

Then I suddenly remembered Tabitha, I couldn’t believe I completely forgot about her. I excused myself from Peace to the restroom in order to check on Tabitha. When I got to the restaurant’s restroom, I connected with Tabitha, and I was surprised with what I was feeling from her.
I could sense fear in her, she was very scared and frightened. By the time, I knew at once that she was in danger but I did not know how I was going to save her.

EPISODE 18

Angel Turn Fighter
Life is attached with many ironies, ironies that can literally make a normal man into an abnormal one.
How suiting is it to hear that an angel slept behind the bar, it’s crazy right?

My good and simple heart pushed me into this predicament, if only I had not rescued Nina, if only I’ve allowed Yemi’s assassins to be successful with their mission and not interrupted them, these oddly irony wouldn’t have taken place.
But if I was given chance to redo all what have done, it would still be the same choices, irrespective if the result is still the same.

I understand the Supreme One's logic of doing things a little to know that he surely has a hidden plan with all that was happening to me.

I had some confident which I didn’t know its source that I was doing what was right and playing along with the Supreme One game.

So if I was asked if I was annoyed with what Tabitha did, my answer will be, yes, because I was partially annoyed and it will also be no, because I think it was really meant to happen. Either as one of my punishment or playing along with the Supreme One's game.

But my pride was really trampled upon, an angel cuffed and treated like a criminal, I knew if other angels were watching from Heaven, they would be laughing at me.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Three policemen came towards me with their guns pointed at me, one of them grabbed my hand and cuffed it at my back.

"I’m innocent, I only came here to protect her” that was the last words I was able to utter before I was pushed like a criminal into one of the police car. Two policemen sat beside me in order to make sure I am secure. I watched from the car with a pitiful eye how Ranking was consoling Tabitha and he opened the car door for her to enter and she did, I saw her eye clearly as she entered the car and I saw tears on her face, the tears melted all the angers brewing in my heart at once and I felt pity on her but as one of the officers inside the car with me saw my point of view and saw that it was Tabitha that I was looking at.

What I heard next was the sound of thunder, I thought it was outside not until I felt the pain on my cheek, it was my face that the thunder ignited from, the officer slapped me like I’ve offended him before ,my view got blurry at once but got normal in a short time.

"See this yeye young guy wey no make me go house this night, he even get the audacity to they look the girl” the officer that slapped me said to his partner in a pidgin English.

"No mind him, I go make sure say I break his leg when we reach station” the other officer replied the officer that slapped me in a serious and harsh tone which doesn’t depict any form of mercy in it.

I was very angry where I was because what they did was abusing my human right.

"But am I even a human?” I asked myself rhetorically as I brought down my head in resignation mode.

As we drove into the police station, I saw like 5 people with cameras on them and identification tag on them, I knew they’re reporters but how they got there waiting for us at that period of night surprised me.

As I got down from the police car with handcuffs on my wrist, the two police officers that escorted me in the car held me by my arms and the reporters started flashing their camera’s flash at me, the flash emanating from the camera plus my high sight of view made it a torture on my eyes as it was real hard for me to see anything, I looked around expecting the policemen to bring out the real criminals but I didn’t see any.

"Could it be that Tabitha didn’t inform them of the assassins?” I asked myself rhetorically as the reporters in my front were busy throwing different kind of questions at me and flashing their camera’s flashlight at intervals while I diverted my eye from it in order not to turn into a blinded fallen angel.

"Do you really kidnap her to demand for ransom or you wanted to eliminate her"

"How many of you were involved in in the operation?"

"Who did you have in the inside who’s serving as your informant?"

"How old are you?"

"What’s your name?"

"Did you sexually abuse the girl?"

All sorts of questions were being thrown at me by the reporters who has tripled their quantity unlike when I first got down from the police car, I wondered where they were trooping out from.

When it seems like I wasn’t ready to answer any question been thrown at me, the two policemen holding me dragged me through the reporters, as they kept on ranting questions on me, they were all speaking at once like barbarians.

As I was about to enter into the police station, an idea crept into my mind, I suddenly stopped abruptly and the two officers who were dragging looked at me with that kind of eye an hungry lion use in looking at an antelope.

"I have something to say” I said at once and all the reporters rushed to me with their cameras and recorders pointed at me. They were calm and quiet this time and I was a bit perplexed why they were quiet, they were glaring at with a curious look expecting me to say something.

"The remaining criminals are still inside the forest they found us, and that girl" I said pointing towards Ranking’s car which Tabitha and Ranking were in it.

I think the reporters didn’t know that they were the one inside it and I knew Ranking’s plan was to let all the reporters leave before they will come out of the car. But I foiled his plan with my own plan.

"Knew where they’re right now, and if they don’t get there soon, they’re going to die because they’ve already procured bullet wound by me” I added and stopped talking leaving them a mystery to unravel.

"Shoot them as how, why did you shot your partners?”

That was the only two questions I could decipher from their shouting as I motioned to the officers that I was ready to proceed with my journey.

They dragged me ahead and I looked back and I saw that the reporters were already surrounding Ranking’s car, I smiled as the policemen dragged me out of the view of them. I was taken into the interrogation room which was litted with a fluorescent bulb unlike the rest of the station which was litted with a dimmed bulb which could hardly be used to read. My hands were uncuffed from my back and cuffed normally. I was made to sat on one of the seats inside the room and I was left alone. After some minutes, a beautiful young lady in police uniform came inside with a book in her hand, she sat opposite to me and drop the book on the table, then took a deep breath and looked at me.

"Wow!” she exclaimed leaving her jaw farther from her upper lip.

"Oh sorry” she said gathering her wit together.

"Firstly, what’s your name, she asked opening the book she brought, documenting some things inside it.

"Ben Manna” I answered her and she startling looked into my eye from the book.

"How can you have such a sweet voice?” she said not taking her gaze away from me.

"I don’t think I can do this ” she said and stood up and head out of the interrogation room.

I smile because I knew what caused it was that caused it. After some minutes again, a subtle looking man came in, he was in police uniform but I could tell that the uniform has not pal with water for a long period of time because of the foul smell it was reeking of.
He sat in the same spot the lady before sat in, he looked at me and smile displaying his yellowish scattered irregular set of teeth and opened the book. Odour of dry gin was emanating from his mouth.

"Fine boy” he later uttered not taking his gaze away from the book.

"See as you fresh like oyinbo, na you con dey do criminally unstiriborogatious baddasilistic things” he added with the mixture of pidgin English and unrecognized grammars that almost wiped off my memory.

I coughed as I felt the grammar choking me.

"So wetin be your name?" he asked when I finished coughing.

"Are you deaf?!” he screamed at me when I didn’t answer him quickly but I was already about to answer him before he barked like a dog.

I didn’t answer again but smiled, I was thinking in my mind that if he tried rubbish with me, my own angel will promote from being a criminal to a wrestler, I knew he wouldn’t survive a punch from my weak hand.

"Okay, brother finer boy, no make me shifu, before I disclampointed all the fines wey dey do you kinkin" he said in his normal pidgin language and bad grammar he’s been using to communicate with me.

"Ben Manna” I amswered him not wanting to get more provoked by him, I knew I might just add to my offence with the Supreme One if he kept up with his act.

"Shey mana wey dem dey chop or mala, the Hause wey they control cow?" he asked irritating me and I angrily smashed my hands with the handcuffs on the table and the table cracked and the handcuffs on my wrist broke off. I only hit it normally without any force and I was sure the stupid officer knew it.

"Oga, I sorry” he said with a shaky voice and I smirked.

"I hear, no, we hear, no they tell me you kidnap a girl wey small” he asked still shaking.

"No, I didn’t kidnap her, I only went there to help her” I answered him entwining my hands into each other.

"But the girl for her statement talk say you kidnap her” he asked documenting somethings into the book which he placed on his lap.

"Where is the girl?” I asked him and he replied me that she and some officers has gone on the errand I sent them.

"Which errand?" I asked him confused.

"Na wetin you tell the cameraman say some of your criminal people, sorry, your friends still they for bush, so, them don go pack them” he answered me smiling, revealing those sets of disgusting teeth.

"They are not my friend and I didn’t kidnap her, they’re the people that kidnapped her but I saved her from them and she misunderstood some things which led to me being here” I enunciated to him clearly and he was looking at me with the” this boy can lie o!” eye.

"Why the police con see you forcefully dragging the girl away when they reach there?” he asked with a curious tone.

"I only save her from putting her leg into a trap that was in her front" I answered him again and he asked me if I can prove it, I asked him how and he said he’s going to call one of the police that’s currently with Tabitha to check the place if there was really a trap.

I told him to do it and he looked surprised, I knew he was expecting me to stop him from doing but I disappointed him.

He took out a phone from his pocket, the looked like it has really gone through a painful ordeal on Earth, as different kind of cello tape was used to bind it from falling apart. The cover was not in peace again but in pieces. He dialled a number from it and after telling the recipient of the call all he needed to in his usaul pidgin English, he disconnected the call.
He brought out another handcuffs from his pocket and walked towards me shaking.

"Can I put it?" he asked trembling and I stretched forth my two hands towards him in order to motion to him to do it.

He cuffed me and took me out of the interrogation room, I asked him where he’s taking me to but he didn’t answer. After walking for some time, we got to the cell where criminals were being locked.

"What are we doing here?” I asked as the foul smell emanating from the cell hit me.

"Wetin e look like, na for you to come get a better sleep ni” he answered grinning.

I knew he was able to get his confident back because of the handcuffs on my wrist.

"I’m not going inside there” I said stopping abruptly and he turned back and he moved closer to me.

"If I woss you slap, e go affect your ancestors skeleton inside ground, you better move now before I move you!" he said with a harsh tone that depict he meant what he said.

"Try it and see what happens to you” I threatened him back.

He grinned and view me with slow motion from my head to the earth beneath me.

"Move now!” he barked at me but I only stood there looking at him.

He raised his hand to slap me, and before I could waive it, his palm were already glued on my face.
I got angry and broke the handcuffs on my wrist, I jerked him up with a single hand, I started hearing people ranting "Kill him, kill him!!, kill him!!!”

I looked around to see who the people were and I saw that it was the inmates occupying the cell .
They were banging the steel of their cell in a violent manner which gat me wondering what it is the stupid officer might have done to them. I think their noise procured the attention of the other police inside the station as I saw four officer running to where we were with clubs in their hands, I threw the stupid office in my hand away and he hit one of the cell steel. I balanced myself ready to beat the four officers heading to where I was and anyone that might want to obstruct me from getting out of the police station.

EPISODE 17

Angel turn Criminal
Some things are just meant to happen in order to favour you, but those things sometimes don’t happen for free, a price must be paid in order to show how committed you are.

These price might sometimes come in a temptation mode, and if you fall for the unwisely idea the dark part of your mind is offering, you easily lose the favour and if you’re wise to rebuke the idea.

Then the favour is yours.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I excused myself from Peace to the restroom in order to check on Tabitha. When I got to the restaurant’s restroom, I connected with Tabitha, and I was surprised with what I was feeling from her.
I could sense fear in her, she was very scared and frightened. I knew at once that she was in danger but I did not know how I was going to save her.

But something seemed odd, I’ve been with the Supreme One for a long period of time to know some of His test I knew He was giving me a test, maybe Tabitha wasn’t in any form of trouble and He wants to see if I’ve finally forsaken my mission because He punished me for my sin or if I was now cool with what I was enjoying as a human, being able to interact with people and many others that I forgot about my main mission on Earth.

"But what of if it wasn’t a test?", I said to myself leaning on the wall inside the restroom, my mind was in disarray, I was short of opinion, even if it wasn’t a test and she’s in trouble, there was no way of me getting to her. I’ve tested earlier if my teleporting power was working and it wasn’t working the only option of me getting to her fast was through the use of my wing which is impossible because many people will see me.

"Not if you fly higher, it’s already getting dark and they won’t be able to see you” someone suddenly whispered into my ear.

I looked around but didn’t see anyone. I smiled as I took the content of the voice as my only solution, but how to get outside without Peace knowing was another problem. I knew I will have to handle that by telling her to go home because if I don’t tell her and escape without her seeing me, she will be worried.

I knew she will want to pester me to know where I was going so I deduced a perfect plan to avoid it before heading out of the restroom.

"I’ve somewhere to go, go home, I’ll soon be back” I said to Peace as I got to her and ran out of the restaurant, I heard her screaming my name as I ran out but I didn’t answer her.

I quickly search for a place where there was no one, when I saw one, I quickly head there, brought out my wing and flew high into the sky. I connected with Tabitha to know where she was and flew towards there with all the speed I could muster. Less than three minutes of flying, I was already feeling her close by. Then finally, I felt her directly under me, I started descending with speed and when I was about to reach the ground, I shut in my wing and landed on the ground.

I landed right in front if Tabitha, her hands were up and she was shivering, before I knew what was happening I heard gunshot from my back and I felt something sharp penetrate into my back, and it came out from my chest and was heading towards Tabitha, but I quickly caught it with my hand, it was very hot, so I drop it on the ground. I felt severe pain in.my body but I didn’t show it.

"Who be this one?" I heard someone said from my back with a huge voice.

"I think say he fall from sky and he no get luck at all cos e look say na im the bullet hit” I heard another voice replied the first voice.

I moved closer to Tabitha who was trembling.

"Are you okay?" I asked wrapping her trembling hands in mine and she shook her head and calmed down.

I release her and turned to face the assassins, I knew they’re assassin because I was sure they were trying to kill Tabitha and I knew the person that must have sent them. They were five, all with dreadlock hair, rough looking face and red eye. They all had guns in their hand.

"The guy no die sha, and he be oyinbo” I heard one of the guy said mockingly.

"I think say he get luck, the bullet no meet am, oya uncle oyinbo, go make we do wetin we dey do before you carry your bad leg come here” I heard another guy talked among the five guys.

"Na because you fine o, no think say if to say na another person, we go spare am, so waka in peace before we pieces you” another guy said to me in their pidgin English and the rest bursted into laughter.

I didn’t take a step from where I was standing, I was calculating how I would take all of them without letting anyone of them to be able to shoot his gun, because it might be dangerous with Tabitha there.

"This guy deaf ni?” one of the guy said moving closer to me with his gun pointed to me. As he got closer to me, I quickly took him out, collecting his gun, I shot the four them on their right arm in a flash, even before anyone of them could raise his gun.

The reason I shot them on their arm was to prevent killing them and because I guessed they were all right-handed, so shooting them on their right arm will prevent anyone of them from being able to shoot.

They all fell down groaning in pain, after falling down they stood up, using their left hand to support the right and tried to escape, I stopped them and knocked them all out.

I prevented them from escaping so that they will be apprehended and will reveal the real perpetrator of the act to the police. I moved back to Tabitha and asked her if she has her cellphone with her.

"I didn’t know where I dropped it when they were chasing me” she replied pointing to the assassins.

"But what the hell happened just now?” she said putting her hand where I was shot and I felt tingling of pain ran through my body.

"I saw you being shot” she added looking at me with a curious face.

"It missed” I replied her and she didn’t seem to believe me.

"But did you fell from the sky, because I only closed my eye and was praying that an angel appear and save me because I knew no human can save me because no person in his right mind will be inside a forest like this and boom, you appeared” she said with a calm body, she was no longer trembling again.

"I just happened to pass here coincidentally and saw them trying to kill you, so I decided to help and do you mean I’m not in my right mind?” I asked smiling and she just smiled back not answering me.

The day was already going into the abyss of shadow giving way for the darkeness which has been looming around, crickets were doing their job of disturbing the ear with their chirping sound as bush filled everywhere. I didn’t see any building around or anyone passing by, I wondered how they were able to bring her there. I knew I’ve to do something in order to make sure that she get home safely and make sure the criminals are being handed to the law enforcement before they bleed to death or their wound get infected which might kill them.

Then I got an idea, I moved closer to their unconscious body and searched it, I found an handset on one of them. I gave it to Tabitha and asked her to call anyone she has his or her number saved in her brain, I knew it will be Ranking but I didn’t want to make her have an impression that I knew her before.

She collected the phone and called Ranking, she explained the situation to him, he asked her where she’s but we didn’t know because it was inside a forest.
He asked her to make sure that she make sure the phone is on, that he will let the police trace it because he’s already with them.

After she hung up the call ,we sat down on the ground and we started chit-chatting.

"Are you a Nigerian?” she asked with a curious tone.

"Why are you asking?” I replied imbibing the normal Nigeria custom of using question to answer question.

"Because even as it is already dark, I can see that you’re white but your intonation is saying the opposite” she said looking at me.

"Opposite as how?” I asked moving my face closer to hers.

"You sound like a confirm Naija pikin” she replied she replied in a pidgin English and I laughed. I knew it was the handiwork of Aliyu and Dandy, because of their constant pidgin speaking, Tabitha too has loved speaking pidgin English but it was at minimum.

"Why are you laughing?” she asked looking at me with a curious eye.

"Nothing, but am not from here and how did you came in contact with this devilish people...? I asked her with the purpose of changing the topic.

"I was just strolling in my neighborhood and they just parked beside me in their car, I tried to run away, but I wasn’t able to get to a long distance before they caught up with me, and my place is inside an estate, so there was no place for me to hide or escape into because every house has fence and gate which are always locked" she said rubbing her eye in order to see clearly.

It was already dark and I knew it will be hard for her to see, but I was seeing everything clearly like we’re in broad daylight, it was one of my gift as an angel and I didn’t lost it when I turned to a human.

'Why were you doing such dangerous thing? You shouldn’t be walking alone in a place like that” I said in order to make her tell me the reason she was strolling alone, strolling in their neighborhood was one of the once in a blue activities of Tabitha that she always do whenever the house is boring, but she always do so with Nina, so I wanted to know the
reason she wasn’t with Nina when she was kidnapped and my plan worked.

"Actually, I always go out with my twin sister but she wasn’t feeling well today and I really felt like strolling because without my sister, the house was getting kind of stuffy to me, so I decided to take a walk in the neighborhood and this happened” she said operating the phone in her hand.

"So they drove you all the way here when they captured you” I asked her and she only shook her head to answer me as she was deeply engrossed in whatever it is she was doing on the phone.

"What the hell?! she suddenly exclaimed still looking at the phone with a disbelieving look which gat me wondering what she could have seen on it.

"What is it ” I asked girraffing my neck to look at the phone and saw that she was in the call log of phone.

"This is my mom’s phone number in this phone call log and it has been dialed today” she said pointing to the phone with her finger which was already shaking.

"You meant your step mom, Yemi’s number right ” I asked stupidly and I’ve already voiced it before I detected my foolishness.

"Yeah" she replied absent minded.

"What?!" She suddenly exclaimed.

"How do you know that I don’t have my mom again and how did you know that my step mom’s name is Yemi?” she asked accusingly and all I could do was stammered some unreasonable words, scratching my head to look for a perfect reason but couldn’t find any.

"I knew it, there is something strange about you, I thought you said it was a mere coincidence that you appeared here?" she asked standing up and started moving further from me.

"I can explain” I said moving closer to her but she was moving further from me, I could sense fear in her.

"Yeah, you can explain that you’re also here to harm me maybe you want to kidnap me and ask for ransom from my dad” she said moving more further away from me.

It was already fully dark and I knew it will be dangerous for her if she continue moving back or try to run away from me.

"I’m not here to harm you, I came to save you” I said moving closer to her with my hands up in order to show to her that I meant no harm.

"No, you’re here to to harm me, if you’re neutral, you can’t have that great skill in shooting, like how you took down those guys who were in your way not to be able to get ransom off me, because it won’t be possible if they kill me” she said and ran away.

I first thought of not following her because of her stupidity.

"How can she accused me wrongly like that when I save her?” I said to myself angrily and stood where I was.

"What if there’s a trap where she’s headed and she mistakenly got caught in it, that will be very bad, and I’m her guardian angel and I shouldn’t be wavered by what ever it is she does” I said trying to give myself a reason to protect her.

I started chasing after her, I was very fast and within seconds, I was already seeing her in my front, I stopped and smiled because I knew it wouldn’t take me up to 30 seconds to get her,
but I suddenly look further to where she was headed to and saw a big trap. It was covered with some grass but I was able to see it clearly and with the way I was seeing it, it was set there for bigger animals, and I knew if she dare or mistakenly put her leg into it, she won't be able to use the leg till she die.

She was just a little distance from putting her leg into it. I didn’t know how but I saw myself moved in the speed of flash and grabbed her and we fell towards another direction, and I saw that where we fell to was a path, then, as if it was planned, four cars, three with sirens and one a Range Rover Sport, parked in our front. Policemen started trooping out of the three cars, and Ranking got out of the Range Rover, Tabitha quickly freed herself from me and ran to him.

"He wants to harm me dad” I heard her said to Ranking with a shaky voice, pointing to me and I saw all the police point their guns towards me.

I quickly raised my hands up to show to them that I’m harmless.
Three policemen came towards me with their guns pointed towards me, one of them grabbed my hand and cuffed it at my back.

'I’m innocent, I only came here to protect her” that was the last words I was able to utter before I was pushed like a criminal into one of the police car.

•Do you think Ben will be able to convince Ranking about this issue?

EPISODE 19

“But chairmo, e no make like that...” Broken bottle was not able to finish his statement when I heard another thunder strike for the second time, when I looked at the direction which I heard the thunder strike from, Broken bottle was already on the floor with his palm on his cheek.

"You talk when I ask you to and also keep shut when I ask you to” the thug sitting on the floor said standing from where he was sitting. He raised a finger up and the thug fanning him stopped fanning, he moved closer to me, squat to be at my height because I was sitting down.

He used his middle finger to raise my chin up and glared into my eye with a serious gaze then he suddenly hugged me, which left me perplexed.

“See as you fresh, I don’t even need light to know it but I think I must confirm my assumption” he said it in a loud whisper. He freed me from his hug and I thank God because he did that, the odour emanating from him had almost choked me and if he had not released me anytime sooner, I would have pushed him away. He snapped his finger and the guy fanning him moved closer to us and handed him something, he scraped his finger on the thing and a small light flashed out of the thing, I recognized the object emanating the light to be lighter that always have small flashlight at its bottom.

"Wow, are you a human” the thug exclaimed illuminating the light on my face.

“I no even think say girl fit fine reach this stage but what are doing here, I don’t think a guy as handsome as you can be a criminal” he asked still glaring at me with a disbelief view.

I didn’t answer but was just looking at him like I was deaf and dumb.

"Okay, don’t talk now, maybe you’re tired but we will continue this conversation tomorrow, and I’m only allowing your insolent act because I’ve never seen someone as handsome as you and it will be wrong if I start panel beating that your fine face” he said standing up and took the position he was before and the guy fanning him continued his job.

Broken bottle had already recovered from the thunder like slap and was already back on his feet, he also continued his job but his voice was not thick again like when I first heard him.

I couldn’t sleep throughout the night, my mind was occupied with different kinds of thought, plus the yam size mosquitoes ruling the cell, a bite from those deadly mosquitoes can make one lose more than 5 pints of blood and the thugs weren’t helping matter, their snoring was capable of raising corpse that’s placed beside them.

I was keeping watch expecting the police to bring in the other criminals but it didn’t happen till day break. As soon as the day broke, I was retrieve from the cell even before the thugs that were inside the cell woke with me woke up. The inmates inside the other cell that have already woken up couldn’t help but open their mouth as the two policemen that came to withdrew me from my cell took me pass in front of their cell.

"Is that a human?” I heard someone asked inside one of the cell and I answered them NO in my mind.

I was taken back to the interrogation room which I was placed yesterday. I was handcuffed as I was made to sat on the seatt I sat on the day before. The two officer left me inside the room and left me. I spent more than thirty minutes inside the room before the door finally opened and I was surprised to see Joyce and Peace entered.

I was ashamed of myself and brought my head down. Peace ran towards me and was crying
"How could they do this to my lovely and handsome Uncle Ben?” she said putting her hands on my cheek and viewing me while Joyce helped herself to the seat which the police officers were occupying yesterday.

“What happened Ben?” Joyce asked looking at me with the eye that made me felt guilty for no reason.

“How did you get yourself in this shit?” she asked when I didn’t answer her first question but I couldn’t find my speech box.

“Mommy stop with all your question and just get him out of here” Peace said urging her mom to stop with her interview which I appreciated in my mind.

“Let me do my work here and stop disturbing me or I will kick you out of here” Joyce threatened her and Peace kept quiet.

But what did Joyce meant by doing her work here, another mystery for me to solve.

“We were expecting you yesterday night when you ditched Peace in the restaurant but we later saw in the news that you’ve metamorphosed into an hardened criminal” she said not answering the real mystery in my mind.

"But I believe that you didn’t do it tho it’s hard to believe but I’ve handle many criminals to know a victim from a suspect and believe me, I trust that you’re innocent” she added again not clearing me of my mystery.

“My mom is a SAN and just trust in her, she will liberate you” Peace said in an assuring tone.

Joyce asked me to narrate all that happened to me how I managed to find myself in the crime scene. I explained everything to her leaving some important details and I told her I didn’t know how I first myself there, I lied to her that I was psychic and can feel when someone is near death.

My lie was able to sell with the help of Peace who was adding false testimony to it, like how I suddenly stood up and was moving like someone possessed.

Joyce believed all my stories and assured me that I was not going to sleep inside the police station that night, she asked that the handcuffs be taken off my wrist and threatened to sue them for treating me like a criminal when I was still a suspect.

I was told that all the criminals that I claimed to shot are dead except the one I knocked out but he hasn’t been interrogated yet. I was treated well by Joyce and Peace, they bought different type of snacks for me and Sophia was called to prepare and bring meal for me.

After some minutes pass 10 in the morning, Ranking came over with Tabitha and Nina. Tabitha really did a good job in painting me as the criminal using the sympathy key to support her claim. All this occurred inside the interrogation room where the DPO, Ranking, Tabitha, two police officer who I recognized to be the ones who were threatening me inside the police car when I was arrested, Joyce and I were present there.
The case was already turning to a disadvantage to me as every evidence were pointing to me.
I tried to use Yemi’s number that we saw on one of the criminal’s phone as a loophole but I heard Yemi has already blocked that hole by claiming that the criminal called her but she thought it was a prank call. Ranking was the one defending her. Even without being told, I knew that my case was going to be charge to court. Joyce that Peace was fumbling that she’s a SAN already sweating profusely, tho I knew she tried so much but every odd was just against me.

After the long run , the DPO said my case will be charged to court where I will be prosecuted, then suddenly, the interrogation room’s door opened and an officer entered, he saluted the DPO and reported that the criminal that they apprehended has finally confessed.

I didn’t know why but I suddenly got a bad feeling about it instead of being happy.

•Whats your take on this?

EPISODE 20

Mystic Doorbell

"You can never progress when you decide to stay at a spot."
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

By the time I got to Ranking’s house, it was already late. My plan was to use the favour that he said he owed me to tell me to give accommodation in his house, "but what if he didn’t grant it, what will happen to me?” I contemplated within myself as I stood in front of the huge gate of the house thinking if I should knock it or not.

“Did I even need to contemplate about it, like I’d a choice, if he doesn’t accept me, that means my situation is going going to elevate from angel turn human to homeless angel.”

A forced smile forcefully graced my lip as the thought scraped into my mind. As I wanted to knock the gate, I noticed a doorbell by the side of the gate, on the wall. Ever since I’ve been staying in the house in my spiritual form, that was the first time I noticed it. I moved closer to it and tried to press it but I felt a strange aura emanating from it, it was complete darkness.

I shifted back a bit from it and shut my invisible eye and alas, the doorbell was no longer there.
I understood what it meant at once. I knocked on the gate hard thrice before a Dandy opened it.

"Who I they look for oyinbo pepper?” he asked in his thick Hausa intonation rubbing his eye with his hand.

"I’m asking of Ranking” I answered him immediately.

"Na night appointment my oga I give you or why I they look for him this night?" he asked in a suspicious tone.

“Yes he gave me an appointment, just tell Ben Manna is here to see him” I lied in order to allow him call him.

I knew my fate lies on the call, if Ranking knew of my presence and refuse to attend to me, then it means that I’ve just begin my initiation into being a stray angel.

Dandy viewed me from my head to toe before bringing out his small phone and dialed a number on it and placed it on his ear.

"Oga, one person I they ask for you down here, I talk say my names I be beans mama” he said spoiling the sweetness of my name.

"Ben Manna” I interrupted him loudly and he corrected himself a bit tho not getting the correct pronunciation.

After some discussion between them which I was unable to hear because i didn’t wish to, Dandy terminated the call and asked me to come inside. I heaved a sigh of relief as I heard that statement come forth from his lip.

As I stepped inside and Dandy was busy locking the gate, I made my way inside the house as I already know my way around. I haven’t taken up to ten steps when Dandy suddenly dragged me forcefully by my cloth and I fell down on my butt because I wasn’t expecting it.

"Where I they go, I they craze, me I tell you say make I they go abi?” he lamented on me with his thick Hausa pidgin English and all I could uttered was "I’m sorry”.

I knew Dandy a lot to know that he tends to get easily angry when you argue with him when you wrong him. He asked me to sit on a chair at the entrance of his room beside the gate to wait for Ranking.

I knew at once that I didn’t have a cause to be happy yet, because if Dandy asked me to wait for Ranking outside, that means Ranking instructed him to do so.

After waiting for some minutes under the strict guard of Dandy, Ranking came out with a small purse in his hand. I stood upon at once and greeted him.

“And I’m grateful for what you did for me,so why are you here?" Ranking asked immediately after the exchanging of pleasantry between us.

"I’ve been kicked out from where i was staying” I replied stupidly like it has something to do with him, but it really had something to do with him, because it was because I refused to press charge against him.

“Because you were labelled as a criminal right?" He presumed making me a little bit angry.

“No, it was because I refused to press charges against you” I replied with a tingling of pride in my voice.

"How?" He asked surprised.

"I was staying with Joyce, the woman that acted as my legal counsel and she threatened to kick me out if I refuse to press charges against you but I couldn’t bring myself to do it, so she kicked me out” I enunciated looking extremely pitiful.

“Ouch, am sorry for that, let me see how I can be of help” he said unzipping the purse in his hand and brought out many #1000 notes, he counted 50 notes and stretched them to me but I refused to collect it.

“Is it small?” he asked and wanted to take more from the remaining notes in his hand.

“No, it isn’t that it’s small but this isn’t the kind of help I need” I said stopping him from adding to the notes in his hand.

“So what exactly do you need?" He asked looking serious.

"Please I want you to let me stay here with you” I said swiftly as if, if I didn’t, I won’t be able to say it.

“What?!" Ranking exclaimed looking at me with the “you can’t be serious look.”

"That’s not possible, I would really like to help you but I can’t accommodate a stranger into my house” he said blankly” but if you
need any other help different from that, feel free to contact me” he said taking his leave from there.

I looked around and saw that Dandy was not in sight.

"Do you really think that me saving Tabitha was a coincidence?” I said getting his attention.

"What do you meant by that?” he asked coming back to me.

"The reason I was able to save Tabitha was because I am her...

EPISODE 21

Kicked Out
Life, they say is a two sided coin, when tossed up will favour one and will be against another, but their are some cases whereby the two players are always favoured by the result of a coin tossed.

Do you know that unlike movies where the evil one are always exposed or are quickly exposed, it doesn’t work like that in reality, some evil people in reality are sometimes lucky to eat their cake and still have it. Thereby having the chance to take their secrets to their grave.

But not all eat their cakes and still have it, but before those kind of people secret get exposed, things would have gone bad beyond repairing.

I didn’t know how Yemi case was going be but I knew if she wasn’t expose with the ongoing investigation, she will not be getting expose anytime soon.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

After the long run , the DPO said my case will be charged to court where I will be prosecuted, then suddenly, the interrogation room’s door opened and an officer entered, he saluted the DPO and reported that the criminal that they apprehended has finally confessed.

I didn’t know why but 6i suddenly got a bad feeling about it instead of being happy.

“That’s good, so did he pinpoint this young man as one of his accomplice” the DPO asked pointing at me and my heartbeat skipped a beat.

All eyes inside the room focused on the sergeant, he became the only VVIP inside the room as we were all anticipating what he had stuck in his throat.

“He said they received order from someone to kidnap and kill the girl but this young man, here” he said pointing at me interrupted them and saved the girl killing three of them in the process i.e. the three corpse we retrieved from the forest, but” he said and paused for a bit.

"But what?!” the DPO asked losing his patience.

"As he wanted to tell us who gave the person who gave them the order, he started coughing out blood and died” the sergeant said with a sober tone.

"Wonderful” I heard Joyce whispered but others didn’t hear.

"Do you have a record of his confession?” the DPO asked the sergeant after some minutes of pin drop silences and the sergeant replied yes.

“Looks like your client’s innocence has being proven" the DPO said directing his gaze to Joyce who received the gaze with a victory smile.

I looked at Tabitha and Ranking with a bloodshot look and they brought their head down with shame.

“I’m very sorry, I didn’t know what suddenly took over me that made me to falsely accuse you” Tabitha said with a sober tone and all gaze except mine directed at her in surprise.

“What do you mean by falsely accusing him?" Ranking asked her in a surprise tone.

"The truth was that he was the one who saved me from the assassins but it was just like I’ve been brainwashed or spelled to forget it and see him as a threat, but I suddenly seemed to remember everything now” she said with tears dripping from her eye and I felt sorry towards her, that was when I was sure that it was the Supreme One’s handiwork and not the girl’s fault.

“Shit!” Ranking exclaimed using the handkerchief in his hand to wipe the sweat that started appearing on his face.

"What are we going to do now?” he asked no one in particular.

“Nothing much” Joyce replied.

"All you just have to do is compensate my client for slander and accusing him wrongly, and you’ll also inform the reporters that you’re sorry for falsely accusing him or else I’m going to sue you and your daughter to court” she added with a serious tone that doesn’t seem like her.

“Let them be” I told Joyce and she looked at me with “what tha hell?” gaze.

"Let's just go home, it ain’t their fault” I added and I could see that Joyce was very angry with my decision.

"Can you leave us for a bit, I think I need discuss somethings with my client in private.”

The DPO looked at Ranking and Ranking shook his head to signify to him that they should leave.

When you’re guilty of something, their will always be a change in the way you do things unlike when you’re innocent of it. Ranking was very humble now, even his walking was saying it, the gaze that was sharp before like a sword was now dull. I knew he was afraid of facing the press, acknowledging that he and his daughter had accused and got me arrested wrongly, it will be a smear on his personality as it will derive criticizingfrom the public. He will be painted as a tyrant and I knew him well to know that, that’s one of the thing he feared most.

“Are you stupid?!” Joyce screamed at me as soon as they left the room.

"How can you decide to let them be after what they did to you, is it that you’re just stupid or you have something to do with the kidnapping?!” she added screaming at me.

"What do you mean by me having something to do with the kidnapping?!” I screamed back at her angrily”.

"What you’re doing is like telling them that you’re lucky to escape them, if not, you’ll even demand an apology from them” she added irritated.

"Okay, anything you like you say against me but I’m not pressing any charges against them and I’m not going to demand for any apology except if they give it willingly” I said to her and she stood up angrily.

"I’m not taking you back to my house if you are keen on letting them go without having to prove to the public that you were accused wrongly” she said in a serious tone and got out of the interrogation room slamming the door as I embedded my head into my palm, she placed me in a hard position.

"Where would I stay if she kick me out?" I asked myself rhetorically as my mind was in disarray. But I couldn’t do what she wanted me to do, not when I was now sure that it was the Supreme One's handiwork.

"Maybe it was also the Supreme One’s plan to have her kick me out of her house ” I assured myself blankly in order to give myself some false hope.

After some minutes of deliberation by myself, I stood up and opened the door of the interrogation room to get out, I saw Joyce standing in front of the door, I thought she was also about to open it and come inside before I was the first before her to open it.

We both stood their looking at ourselves waiting for the first person who is going to speak.

"Why do you want me to press charges against them?” I asked her in order to know her reason for insisting on it.

"I can’t bear to see them treat you this way and get away with it, my heart and mind was chattered when I saw you in the news, that you’re been accused of kidnapping. I can say it confidently that you’re the cutest and most handsome man on earth and that kind of treatment against you is uncalled for, you’re supposed to be treated like a kind and not a criminal, and I can’t stand it to have my future son inlaw treated this way without clearing the shit from the public mind” she enunciated and I was surprised with her last statement tho I shouldn’t be but I couldn’t help myself but be.

"And why did you think me as your future son inlaw?" I asked her stupidly when I didn’t find a soothing reply to give her.

"I don’t think Miss Efe is fond of me” I added.

"She’s very fond of you, I knew it but she didn’t want to show it because she hasn’t gotten over the betrayal she felt from her former guy and even if she doesn’t want you, I knew Peace will prefer having you as her husband than all the properties her father left for her” she replied me with a tone and look that depict that she was serious with her reply.

"But I don’t have any feelings for her or Miss Efe” I said in almost a whisper.

"You don’t need to do now, when you stay with each other for some time, feelings will started growing automatically” she replied holding my two hands.

"But I am not going to press the charges and I don’t think any feeling is going to grow”.

"Is it because of that girl?" She asked with a serious tone and I didn’t reply her.

"You’ve been charmed by her beauty, that was why you’re reluctant to press the charges you ingrate!” she screamed at me releasing my hand.

She stormed towards the door of the interrogation room and suddenly stopped when she was about to get out and turned to look at me.

"But her beauty doesn’t deserve you, you’re too pretty for her, you can follow me in my car to get your belongings from my house, that I can do for you” she said and stormed out of the room.

The journey to her house was done in pin drop silence, Peace was also silent, she couldn’t say anything when her mom had screamed at her to keep shut when she was pestering her to tell her what happened.

My mind reminisced into what happened in the police station after everything had been settled.

"I’m very grateful for what you did for me and I owe you for this and I’m also sorry” Ranking said shaking my hand.

Tabitha hugged me deeply and whispered into my ear that she was very sorry for what she did, I would trade that hug for all the days I’ve spent on Earth, I was very happy and didn’t want it to end.

The DPO also accoladed me for my decision and apologized to me for the foul treatment I received from his officers.

As Joyce car drove into the big gate of her house, I alighted and head straight to the guest room and got my armour and sword which I neatly wrapped with my white robe.

"What’s happening mom?" Peace asked Joyce as she saw me came out with my little belongings in my hand.

“Ben is leaving” Joyce replied her.

"No mom, ask him to stay” Peace pleaded with tears.

“He’s already made up his mind and there’s nothing I can do about it” she replied Peace and left the sitting room heading to her room.

“Please don’t leave, if it’s because of my behaviour towards you, I promise that I’m going to change, I won’t pester or threaten to kiss you again” Peace pleaded to me with tears smearing her beautiful face.

I moved closer to her and embraced her.

“Thank you and I’ll miss you” I whispered into her ear before disengaging the hug and left her and head out of the sitting room. I heard Peace wailing and I pitied the girl but there was I could do, as I was about to open the gate, I heard Peace called my name and I stopped, she ran towards me and hugged me.

“I think I’m entitled to this” she whispered to me as she stood on her toes in order to be able to be of the same height with me and looked deep into my eye before she covered the gap between us and locked her lip with mine. She kissed me deeply exploring my mouth with her tongue, I wanted to stop her but couldn’t bring myself to do it.

I thought she was truly entitled to it. She took her time kissing me like her life depended on it and truth be told, I responded a little to it.

After she’s kissed me to her satisfaction, maybe for 20 minutes or more, she disengaged the kiss, and bid me bye as she ran back inside.

I felt weak after the kiss, it was like I lost some strength at that moment but I still had some left to trek. And during the course of the walking, I felt the lost strength at that moment but I still had some left to trek. And during the course of the walking, I felt the lost strength returning.

By the time I got to Ranking’s house, it was already late. My plan was to use the favour that he said he owed me to tell me to give accommodation in his house, 'but what if he didn’t grant it, what will happen to me” I contemplated within myself as I stood in front of the huge gate of the house thinking if I should knock it or not.

EPISODE 22

I looked around and saw that Dandy was not in sight.

"Do you really think that me saving Tabitha was a coincidence?” I said getting his attention.

"What do you meant by that?” he asked coming back to me.

"The reason I was able to save Tabitha was because I am a psychic and can feel it when someone is near death” I said mustering all the seriousness i could mustered and channeled it into my voice.

“You’re lying right, you just want me to accommodate you” Ranking said with a shaky voice.

“No am not, and currently your two daughters life are in danger and I’ve to be around them in order to be able to avert it or they will die” I said looking more serious like a fortune teller.

"No,you’re just trying to play on my intelligence, Dandy!” he screamed.

"Then the girls will just die like Precious did 11 years ago when you reversed your car and mistakenly hit her” I swiftly said before Dandy got to where we were.

The purse in his hand suddenly fell down and Ranking’s mouth was opened looking at me like he’s already lost it.

"Oga wetin I happen?” Dandy said running to where we were standing.

"Nothing, go back to your post” he said to Dandy with a shaky tone and Dandy returned at once.

“How do you know about Precious?” he asked me with a sober tone.

"That is not the right question, the right question should be, what is my connection with your family because I myself doesn’t know it, but I always feel and know everything happening to your family in my subconscious state” I said confusing him more.

He surveyed me from my head to toe before speaking again.

“And when are they going to be in danger?” he asked glaring at me.

"I don’t know but when I feel that someone is going to be in danger, it always happen within the period of two weeks” I lied blatantly.

He became silent for sometime then after deliberating within him if he should accept me or not, he came to a conclusion and spoke out.

"I can only take you in if you’re going to follow all the rules am going to give you” he said with a disturbing look.

“Okay I will follow everything” I replied him swiftly.

"Firstly, you will become my daughters personal bodyguard which am going to be paying you for it, and secondly, if after two weeks and nothing happen to my daughters,you’re going to be kicked out of the house and lastly, as I know you knew that you’re extremely handsome and I don’t trust that my wife and daughters will be able to resist you if you approach them, that’s the reason I was against giving you
accommodation before, but it seems am left without a choice now. So you must never approach my wife or daughter and if by
mistake, anyone of them approach you, especially my wife, make sure you resist them” he ordered and I replied him that I will obey his rules.

“And if I remember another one, I will inform you, let's go inside while we discuss your payment tomorrow” Ranking added going
inside the house and I followed him.

I met only Yemi inside the sitting room watching a movie, the two girls were nowhere to be found.

Ranking sat with Yemi and asked me to help myself to one of the seat inside the sitting room which I did.

Yemi’s gaze was transfixed on me as soon as I sat on one of the chair in the sitting room.

“Honey meet Ben, the saviour of our daughter” Ranking said when he noticed Yemi staring at me.

“So, this is the handsome fellow that saved Tabitha, he looked more handsome in reality than on news” Yemi said with a tone that
made me excited, because I knew she’s supposed to be angry with me for spoiling her plan but here she is looking at me like she adore me.

“Yeah” Ranking replied.

"If you had followed us to the police station this morning, you’d have seen him” Ranking added.

“But is he from here, because he doesn’t even look like a foreigner not to talk of being a Nigerian?” Yemi said with a confused tone.

I knew Ranking would have already being regretting his decision, I haven’t used up to
an hour in his house and his wife is already hitting on me,

“Lets forget about that for now, we will discuss more about him tomorrow, get him something to eat” Ranking ordered Yemi
jealously.

“Okay” Yemi replied.

” Mona Lisa”! Yemi screamed thrice and an ugly looking short girl ran into the sitting room.
Even without being told, I already knew that she was the housemaid, her appearance said it all unlike Sophia.

“Madam na me be this” Mona Lisa said as she entered the sitting room.

“Where were you since that I was shouting your name?” Yemi screamed at her angrily.

“I’m sorry madam, I am wash plate inside kitchen and did not hearing that you calling me” she replied Yemi with soured English.
I
almost laughed as she made me remember the stupid officer Victor their English were almost the same .

But I was surprised with the maid, the last time I was in the house, their was no maid and in just three days, an English Professor inside the house.

I almost asked them when they brought in an housemaid but cautioned myself.

Yemi hissed loudly at the maid and directed her attention to me.

"What will you like to have darling?" Yemi asked in a seductive which made started
fearing for my stay inside the house at once.

I looked at Ranking’s face and saw that it still had “I will soon kick you out of this house” expression.

"What will you like to have?" Yemi repeated the question when I seemed not to answer her the first time.

“I’m okay with anything” I answered her almost inaudible.

"Okay, get him fried rice, plantain, chicken, sauce beef, and salad” Yemi ordered the maid and the maid disappeared from the
sitting room.

"As per Tabitha recommendation that he’s skilled and can fight, and also good with disarming his opponent, I’m going to employ him as the girls personal bodyguard
and he will be staying with us for the main time” Ranking said with regret lurking in his tone.

“You mean he is going to be living with us?” Yemi screamed excitedly.

That was when it occurred to me what Yemi was trying to do, she’s trying to use the jealousy key against me, she want Ranking
to kick me out by making him jealous of me, and I might be wrong but I’m not sure yet, but out of all what Ranking said, how is it
that it was “you mean he’s going to be living with us" that she was able to scream excitedly thereby cutting my lifeline short.

Ranking brought out his phone and dialed a number on it without minding his wife's question.

“Come downstairs with your sister, I’ve a surprise for you two” he said to the recipient before terminating the call.

After some seconds ,the elevator inside the house clicked and the two girls came out of it with only bum short and top bra on.

Tabitha was very beautiful and cool, I felt all the feelings that I’ve locked when I was still an angel unlocking at once. She was surprised to see me likewise Nina
too, Nina must have seen me in the TV and recognized me.

"Meet your new bodyguard, Ben Manna”. Ranking introduced me to the girl.

"What?!" The two girls exclaimed in unison.

"With what happened to you and your narration about how he saved you, I’ve scout and recruited him as your personal bodyguard.

“Thanks dad!” Tabitha shouted and jumped on her dad.

“You’re the best dad, now I gat the chance to pay him properly for what I did to him” she added joyously while Nina just stood where she was not knowing if she should also be happy or sad, but she stood there glaring at me like she is seeing a ghost.

Tabitha suddenly knelt in front of me “I’m sorry once again for last time, please protect my twinie and I very well” she pleaded folding her two hands together and I smirked.

"Looks like I’ve seen you from somewhere , a long time ago” she suddenly said looking into my eye scaring the shit out of me.

"He saved you, so you’ve already seen him before” Ranking interrupted and I heaved a sigh of relief.

“No dad, I think I saw him inside of this house many years ago” she said making my heart to skip a beat.

"I think I remember!" She suddenly
exclaimed making my face to become pale at once.

"He is the person I saw the day I...

EPISODE 23

Being a human can be said to be a difficult thing,temptation always lurking around ready to grip you and the flesh unable to resist it. When I was still an angel, I always thought the little one just naturally have disobedient spirit, that they just love rebelling against the Supreme One’s laid down rules for them.

Little did I know that being a human is a lifetime challenge. I haven’t stayed in human flesh up to a week and I could already be classified as a chronic sinner.

I have really tried in breaking all the laid down regulations of the Supreme One. I’ve lied, fought, even disdained my temple.

I’ve come to know that the greatest challenge is being a human.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

"I think I remember!" She suddenly exclaimed making my face to become pale at once.

"He is the person I saw the day I... ”

“Oga, the food don ready ooo” Mona Lisa the maid interrupted Tabitha with her pidgin English.

"Where is the dining?" I asked swiftly asked standing up. Tho I knew where the dining is but I didn’t want to make them to be suspicious of me.

"Follow me” the maid replied going to the dining and I quickly followed suit.

I was showering the maid appreciation in my mind, I felt like pecking her for saving me. I turned back and saw Tabitha’s gaze fixed on me and I quickly turned my head back to where I was going.

The maid showed me the dining room and left me to devour the delicacy prepared for me. I ate to satisfaction trying to shut the little scenario that Tabitha almost caused outta my mind in order not to lose my appetite because of the fear it will attract. After I finished eating, I went back to the sitting room and saw that the two girls were no longer there. Only Ranking and Yemi were there, Yemi’s head rested on Ranking’s chest with glass cups filled with wine in their hands as they chat. I told them I was through and ready to sleep and Mona Lisa was called to show me to my room (the guest room).

After I got to my room, I shut the door and took my clothes off as I made my way into the bathroom inside the room and had a nice shower, my first for that day. After I was through with the shower. I tied a towel around my waist and went on my kneel beside the bed.

"Supreme One, who made me, hallo be thy, for thou kingdom is at hand. Forgive me all my sins, tempt me no more for I’ve grown bored of it, return me to my position for I’ve learnt my lesson and will never disobey You again and if not grant me the power to execute my mission successfully on Earth. Hearken unto my pleas.
Yours in truth, Jikanen”.

I sent my message to the Supreme One and stamped it with my signature name in almost a whisper.

I switched the light off and retired to the king size bed inside the room and slept off. I suddenly woke up to the dinging of a doorbell, it was very loud and I was kinda uncomfortable with.

“Who could that be at this time of the night?” I asked myself rhetorically as I switched the light inside my room on and sat on the bed trying to hear if Dandy will open the gate for whoever it was that was pressing the doorbell, then I suddenly remembered that the house doesn’t posses any doorbell and I remembered about the mystic one I saw outside earlier.

I knew at once what was happening, the evil ones are coming and they placed the doorbell there to be alerting Yemi of their presence and she in spiritual form will open the door them and allow them passage into the house.

I looked at the wall clock inside the room and saw that It was exactly 1 am. I knew that their main mission is Tabitha and I’ve to stop them but I didn’t know how. They are in the spiritual realm and I in the physical realm, which means that I’m visible to human while they aren’t.

People will only see me battling nothing and think that I’m insane. I deliberated over it for a short time before an idea scraped my mind. I mustered my invisible self like I did on my first day in Joyce house. I didn’t know if it was going to work but I gat some faith that it would. I controlled my spiritual self to take my sword and controlled to the entrance of Tabitha’s room. Guarding it like a security with the sword in my hand.

After some time I saw like 50 people in black and red on a long queue, an old man who still looked agile with a staff designed with cowries in his hand led them towards Tabitha’s room. I presumed the man was their leader as he kept hitting the floor at interval with the staff. I looked through them all and was surprised not to see Yemi. I raised my sword up glaring at them with a furious eye ready to attack them.

They suddenly halt when they were about to get to me and a man clothed in another attire different from the others came forward to their leader.

"I think that security man can see us” he said glaring at me.

"I also think so but it is impossible for a mare mortal to see us” the leader replied the man.

"And why is he even guarding the room naked?” the man with the different attire said and I looked at myself and saw that I was really naked, I stupidly used my hand to cover my thing. (Am sure you understand what I meant)

"And he can see and hear us” the man in different attire said and returned to where he was standing before.

"Young man, is it true that you can see us?” the leader asked hitting the staff in his hand on the ground.

"You don’t need to stress yourself with that, what you need to stress yourself with is how you’re all going to escape from without getting hurt” I threatened with a stone face and they all bursted into laughter.

"I think you’re the one who need to run ,I don’t know how you managed to see us but I think we’ve the number advantage” the leader said and all his crew bursted into mocking laughter.

"I’m feeling good today, so am ready to spare you if you run now" he said hitting the staff in his hand on the ground.

I brought down my sword and did like I was contemplating on his offer, after some few seconds I left the entrance signifying to them to do what they they came there to do.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I fell down and my eye shut itself, I opened my eye and find myself inside my room on the bed, blood littering the bedsheet.

"I’ve to save her” I managed to say stretching my hands towards the door inside my room before I passed out.

But the worst thing about passing out was that my mind was still active, and I was fully aware that Tabitha was still in danger. I knew I had to do something but I was too powerless and helpless to do it. The instinct to go and save her was very high and burning through that I felt like my body was on fire.

With force, I managed to open my eye, I screamed silently as I used all the remaining strength in me to foster my healing, after all the injuries I procured from the first battle was gone, I quickly brought out my armour and wore it swiftly. I sat on the bed and conjured my spiritual self again, I ran out towards Tabitha’s room. When I got the entrance, I was surprised not to see anyone there again, even all the dead armies were nowhere to be found again, but my sword was on the ground there, I picked it up and entered into Tabitha’s room and I saw a beautiful event occurring, tho the event was a sought of violent one but I was deeply touched by it.

I saw Precious shielding Tabitha and the leader of the evil one was busy hitting her with his staff, her facial expression showed that she was very tired, but she refused to let go in order to buy time for me to come back for Tabitha.

When They noticed my presence, the leader stopped and looked at me with terror visible in his eye.

"Please save her” that was the last word from Precious' mouth before she fell down and scattered into ashes.

She was a good one, she trade her everlasting rest for the safety of her daughter, the injury she sustained was too severe for her to continue being a ghost, her soul is now lost and won’t find rest till eternity.

"Looks like you’re a tough one who doesn’t give up easily, well, let me give you an honourable death” he said moving towards me and his staff transformed to a long sword this time.

He tried to strike me but I dodged it, he was very keened on killing me but all I did was guard all his attack. After attacking for some period of time and couldn’t get me, he transformed into a big monster and roared loudly, I also brought out my wing, I could tell from his facial expression that he was very surprised to see my wing.

"Angel Benmanna please spare me" he pleaded going on his knee and transformed back.

I was very surprised to how he knew my name.

"How do you know my name?” I asked him tucking in my wings back.

"Even tho we haven’t seen you before but everyone of us know the name of the guardian angel guarding the perfect one” he replied me with a pitiful eye”.

"You knew that there was an Angel guarding her and yet you still have the gut to try and attack her?” I asked with a thunder-like voice”.

"It wasn’t our fault” he swiftly replied in his defense.

"Then whose fault is it?” I asked again.

"The ruler’s fault, he told us that he’s made sure that you lose your position as an Angel and you can no longer guard the perfect one again” he replied me stunning me with surprise.

"Made sure I lost my position as an Angel as how and who is this ruler you speak of?” I asked with surprise.

”I can’t tell you who the ruler is, just strike me dead here because an I’ll fate wait for me if I tell you and the ruler is a man who knows his way around his scheme” he answered laughing mockingly.

"Then you die!” I said raising my sword to kill him but a thick flame suddenly erupted from the floor shielding me from getting to the man, a human figure also erupted with the flame and covered the man and they disappeared into the ground but I caught a glimpse of the figure that erupted from the floor, I was sure it was someone I’ve seen before.

I moved closer to Tabitha who was sleeping peacefully on her bed, unaware of the great war that occurred. She looked more cute sleeping and very beautiful. I’ve been feeding my eye with that sight for a long time but it just seem I couldn’t get enough of it. I knew I was in love with her but I always deceive myself to believe that I wasn’t, that I was just devoted to protecting her.

I stood guard beside her till black shadow illuminating the Earth gave way for the morning light.

I watched as she woke up and stretched yawning, she suddenly sat on the bed and looked like she was remembering something, before a bright smile forced it way out of her lip and she placed her hand on her lip. I knew what it meant, she must have dreamt about someone kissing her and she really love it because her facial expression said it.

She stood up and went to stand in front of her dressing mirror. I was oblivious to what she was doing in front of it because my mind was trying to decipher who it was she could have dreamt of. I knew it couldn’t be Gabriel, or could it be that she has met a guy she love within the little time I was resting from my duty.

I shook of that idea when her door opened and Nina entered also wearing that beautiful smile that made it obvious that she was also happy.

"How was your night rest love?” Nina said as she entered and sat on the bed.

"It was very lovely and fine, the best I’ve had for a long time” Tabitha answered her smiling.

"Looks like something so romantic happened in it?" Nina asked teasingly.

"Yeah, in dream” Tabitha nodded her head shyly.

"And who could be the guy that made you have a romantic dream, something I don’t think has happened before?” Nina asked her dragging Tabitha to sit beside her on the bed.

"It was...”

I wasn’t able to hear her finish her statement before I had to reconnect with my main body when someone knocked on the door of my room. I stood up and opened the door forgetting that I still had the armor on me and sword in my hand.

“What’s the meaning of this in my house?” Ranking asked with surprise as he stood at the entrance of my room looking shocked.

"How do I get myself out of this shit now?” was the thought that ran through my mind as I stood in front of Ranking as the fear of been thrown out gripped me.

EPISODE 24

Enjoying the life
“What’s the meaning of this in my house?” Ranking asked with surprise as he stood at the entrance of my room looking shocked.

"How do I get myself out of this shit now?” was the thought that ran through my mind as I stood in front of Ranking as the fear of been thrown out gripped me.

"I...I...I am just, you know” I stuttered thinking of an excuse to give.

"I’m just practicing” I said waving the sword in my hand in the process and Ranking shifted back a bit in fear.

"I’m sorry” I quickly apologized.

"Really?" Ranking asked looking at me with a mixed feeling gaze, one I couldn’t decipher the message it was sending.

"But how did you brought all these in?” he said pointing at the sword and armour I had on.

"Because I can’t remember seeing it with you yesterday when we were talking” he added still looking at me with that same gaze.

"It was in my hand, maybe you didn’t notice it” I replied him confidently.

"Maybe” he said entering my room.

"This looks like real gold” he said touching my armour.

"How did you get it?” he asked looking friendly now.

"I don’t know if it’s made up of real gold but it was gifted to me by a very rich and powerful man who wanted me to protect one of his cherished person” I answered him grinning.

"Very good, and were you now able to protect the person’s cherished one?” he asked taking keen interest in my reply.

"I don’t know but currently I’m still doing fine concerning the person” I answered him praying he doesn’t make more inquiry about the person.

He suddenly did something that surprised me, he went on his kneels and held my hand.

"For some days now, I’ve been having some weird and scary dreams about Tabitha, it always start with her been pursued by someone covered in black, then she will fall into a big hole filled with many people covered in black, then they, then they...” he paused and I could see that tears was strolling down his face, he wiped his face with an handkerchief.

"...They always cut her flesh bit by bit while she scream in pain as they do it, I’m not the Joseph type and I rarely dream and when I do, but I have been having the same dream since the day her sister almost died, you can see my reason for wishing to send you to prison when I heard you kidnapped her, I thought it was related to the dream... (same day I lost my place as an angel)... I had the same dream again last night just a little different” he added and paused.

"What difference?” I asked impatiently.

"You were inside it, wearing this same armour and this sword in your hand, you defended her with all the strength you got, it even got to a point that you were weakened by the people in black but you didn’t give up and protected my precious little girl. I was very happy when I woke up from the dream because taking you in was the right thing, I wanted to come and thank you this morning even tho I found it unreasonable but I just felt the urge to do it and you can see how surprised I was when you opened the door and I saw you in the same armour” he said staring at me.

"It’s okay, it’s just a dream” I said trying to lift him from the floor but he resisted.

"I knew it was a dream but I’m sure it holds a significant meaning, Tabitha as you see, is my life, if anything should happen to her, then I might not find any reason to continue gracing this Earth. You’re still young, looking at you, you can’t be more than 22 but I’ve heard how strong you’re from Tabitha and the officer you knocked out, please protect my daughter, I haven’t been helpful towards her since she lost her mom with all I did but please help me to be helpful to her, this I plead of you” he said with a sober voice.

His voice and actions portrayed his sincerity towards all he said and I felt a great urge travelling inside me to protect Tabitha more.

"I swear to you that I will do all in my power to protect your girls, even if it will drain me of the last breath in me” I said crossing my heart.

"I trust you, change and come down for breakfast” he said leaving my room.

“Okay, I will!” I screamed at his back.

A faint smile which didn’t last grace my lip as I fell down with my back on the bed. Then when the thought of what happened that night flashed my mind, the smile disappeared at once.

Everything didn’t make sense, I didn’t think Yemi had a hand in it but why did they installed and press the doorbell before they came in, who’s the ruler, who was the one who came to rescue the leader, how did their sword managed to injured me? My mind was cramped as different sought of rhetoric questions passed through it.

Then remembering about Precious solved the mystic doorbell for me, she might the one that installed the doorbell to alert me of the evil ones presence, maybe she knew I was no longer an angel and would find my way back to the house, so she created the bell to alert me. She must have placed the darkness I felt from it when I was near it in order to gain my attention to it.

That was the best reasonable reason I could find for the mystic doorbell or why will the evil ones create awareness of their presence.

After trying to get answers for the remaining puzzles but couldn’t, I stood up from the bed and took my armour off, I looked at my bedsheet and saw it was stained with blood, blood invisible to human. I ignored it and took a shower before wearing the clothes I’ve been wearing for more than three days because I don’t have any to change into. The clothe I had on and my slippers were the only things Joyce got for me and I didn’t leave behind.

After I was through, I moved downstairs to the dining room but it was just being set by Mona Lisa the maid. I grunted in disappointment because I was very hungry, courtesy of the war I fought that night. I headed to the sitting room and saw Tabitha and Nina there, they were watching a movie, no the right expression was that the movie watching them because they were deeply engrossed with their chitchat than they were with the movie the TV was displaying.

"Good morning girls” I greeted them so they could notice my presence as I helped myself to one of the fancy chair in the room.

"Good morning Uncle Ben!” they both replied my greeting together, but their reply was accompanied with a kind of look that depict that I might be the one they were discussing.

"Ben” I said pretending to be interested in the movie the TV was displaying.

"What do you mean?” Tabitha asked looking at me.

"Call me Ben, spare me that uncle or usage of formal speech” I replied not taking my gaze from the TV.

"Okay, Ben” Tabitha answered with a sweet voice that was beyond perfection, to my ear, it was like a beautiful tune was played.

I didn’t say a word again, rather I pretended to be watching the movie, they were whispering now and giggling at interval, I was d–n sure then that I was their topic sentence. They were both stealing glances at me and smiling but I pretended not to notice. I thought about my beauty as people always say was the reason.

"Uncle Ben, sorry, Ben, have you ever had a plastic surgery before?" Tabitha asked diverting my attention from the movie which I didn’t even know what was going on in it.

"No” I replied turning to face them.

"Are you a Nigerian?” she asked again following my reply.

"You can say that” I replied smiling cutely and I could see vividly Tabitha’s cheek turning red.

"That’s very hard to believe” Nina said contributing to the conversation for the first time.

"You’re not the first to say that” I said smiling.

"And I won’t be the last” she replied and the three of us bursted into laughter.

"Looks like you’re all enjoying your time with Ben, sorry to kill the atmosphere, but it’s time to eat” Ranking interrupted, killing the atmosphere as he earlier stated and the girls grunted in disappointed.

They were booing their all the way to the dining room and all I could do was smile. When we got to the dining, Yemi wasn’t there, we sat down and I felt myself salivating as I saw stare at the different meals on the dining table.

The dining table has a high length with a short breadth, that it made the arrangement to be a seat at each end and two seats at each breadth making the single seat at each length to face each other and the four seats at the breadth too. Tabitha and Nina occupied the two seats at one end of the breadth while I occupied the one at the other end which was facing Tabitha’s own. So I was simultaneously facing Tabitha. I was surprised that none of them made any attempt to eat, that was when it occurred to me that they were waiting for Yemi. It wasn’t long before Yemi came out.

"Wow!” she gasped as she saw me, and smiled at me but I didn’t reciprocate the smile because I haven’t made arrangement for where I would be staying if Ranking kick me out.

She sat at the other end of the length thereby facing Ranking. A short prayer was offered by Ranking and everyone started serving what they wished to eat. The girls only took two slices of bread, placed an omelette inside of it and used a cup of warm tea to accompany it down. Ranking was battling a plate of rice but in front of him in another plate was different sorts of meat, carefully fried plantain and juice. Yemi was eating spaghetti, trust me, when I say spaghetti, it’s more than that, but am not ready to go into details.

I tried to copied Tabitha and Nina and also took two slices of bread and omelette in between it ,but it wasn’t as if I ate anything, which gat me wondering how the two girls were satisfied.

I didn’t know when I consumed 16 slices of bread but I wasn’t yet satisfied. I abandoned the bread and settled for yam and rich spice that was on the table.

Throughout my eating, Tabitha never missed a chance to steal a glance at me likewise Yemi, only Nina stole a few glances at me and I was sure Ranking was aware of it.

After consuming 10 slices of yam, I was finally satisfied. I drank two cups of juice to escort the meal. After we were through, Mona Lisa the maid was summoned to clear the leftovers, many which we didn’t touch.

"How was the meal, hope you enjoyed it” Ranking asked after the maid was through with the clearing of the table.

"Yes thank you” I replied him smiling.

"I bet you did, and can you please do me the favour of not smiling again, or can’t you just be kind towards the ugly ones here, must you add salt to our injury” he said and we all bursted into laughter.

"It’s ugly one not ones and not one of us here” Yemi said and we all bursted into laughter including Ranking.

"But dad you’re also handsome, just that when a truck stays beside a tricycle, its overshadows it” Nina said teasingly.

"And who’s the truck and who’s the tricycle?” Ranking asked feigning anger.

"You know the answer yourself” Tabitha answered and we all bursted into laughter again.

"The two of you are getting out of my today” Ranking said to the girls jokingly.

"As long as Ben follow us, it’s okay" Tabitha replied Ranking jokingly but I sensed some sincerity in the sentence and was shocked a bit by it.

"I think, it was this cloth that was on you when you were in the police station and also the one you wore here yesterday” Ranking asked me and I nodded to motion to him that he was right.

"I wasn’t able to change it due to my situation I told you about” I answered him looking pitiful and I really hate looking that way.

"Well, after you’ve rest, I will ask my driver to take you to my friend’s boutique, you can any cloth you wish” Ranking said looking at me with a pitiful eye.

"I will follow him” Tabitha said which surprised me and I could see that Yemi was displeased by it.

"Do anything you wish, thank you Lord for the food” Ranking said standing and headed out of the dining room.

Tabitha stood up and dragged me up from the table.

"Let's go to the boutique now” she said dragging me and I followed her.

When we got outside, Aliyu and Dandy were talking and when Dandy saw me, he pointed at me and Aliyu looked at me and I heard hi. exclaimed opening his mouth wide.

"That I no be human oo, I be baby” Aliyu said almost in a shout.

"Shey I no tell you, I be baby wey I they use they sell cloth” Dandy replied Aliyu. I knew he was referring me to a mannequin.

"Aliyu!” Tabitha screamed when he seemed not to be leaving Dandy to perform his duty.

He ran to where we were standing.

"Small madam, I they go out?” he asked in pidgin English.

"No, I they go in” she replied him in pidgin English and I smiled.

"Okay, bye-bye” Aliyu said going back to Dandy.

"Aliyu!” Tabitha screamed again and he ran back to us.

"Small madam, I they call me again?” he answered again.

"When will you learn?” she paused hissing.

"Go and get the car, we’re going Mrs. Cole’s shop!” she ordered him and he quickly obeyed it.

Some minute later, we were already on the road. The drive their wasn’t up to 30 minutes and half of it was done amidst pin drop silence and gaze from Tabitha and glances from Aliyu who kept stealing a glance at me through the rear mirror. After some minutes, Tabitha raised up a topic and from that topic, different topics started unveiling, we started chit chatting about many things. She asked me if I have a girlfriend and I replied no, she has that expression that shows that she didn’t believe me but she was satisfied with my answer and didn’t question me further. When we got to where we were going, Tabitha held my hands like we were dating and we entered. The feeling I got inside the boutique was exactly the same as the one I got the time I went with Joyce to a boutique, just that this time, I wasn’t the only one getting gaze, people inside the boutique were also gazing at Tabitha.

"They are really a perfect match” I heard someone said and I was sure Tabitha also heard it because a smile graced her lip at once making her more beautiful.

She took me to the secretary of the boutique, she showed her a card and she gladly took us to another part of the boutique to do our shopping there. She left us and returned to her spot.

The place she took us was filled with no soul except Tabitha and I but fully equipped with CCTV. Tabitha was the one who was doing the picking while I only did the testing. After I put the cloth on inside the small room meant for that purpose, I will come out and show it to her, then she will do the final screening and decides if we should take it or not. Then she gave me a cloth to go and test, the design of the cloth was different complex and almost impossible for me to wear, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get it on properly, it even looked like a female cloth, after many trial I resigned to trying it and brought it to her that I couldn’t get it on, she laughed at me and jokingly call me a village boy.

She explained to me how I was going to wear it and I returned to the room to try it. With her explanation, I was able to get the cloth on not until my two hands stuck inside it and I couldn’t get it out.

I called Tabitha to come and help me out, she first laughed at me mockingly when she saw me before she started helping me. But when she was trying to get it off me, I lost balance and wanted to fall down backward but she quickly drew me to her and we both fell down together, my hands released from the cloth during the falling and I was able to place my palm behind her head in order to avoid save her from hitting her head on the tiled floor. I was directly on her and my head directly opposite her and a little bit from hers. I felt her breathing increased and mine. I wanted to get up but I didn’t know the invisible force holding me down on her. I couldn’t overpower the force as felt my head moving closer to hers and she was also raising hers towards mine.

•What do you think Ben and Tabitha are trying to do?

EPISODE 25 (QUARTER FINAL)

Finally in Shit
I was directly on her and my head directly opposite her and a little bit from hers. I felt her breathing increased and mine. I wanted to get up but I didn’t know the invisible force holding me down on her. I couldn’t overpower the force as felt my head moving closer to hers and she was also raising hers towards mine. Before I could think clear and avoid the situation, our lips were already locked and we started kissing.

She was kissing me as if her life depends on it, I flipped her over and she was on top of me, I drew her tighter to me by putting my hand on her waist, after some minutes I felt my thing stiffening, first time such would happen but I didn’t care, as I continued kissing her.

Some part of me were telling me to stop it but another part was urging me to continue, I sided with the urging side and continued. After some minutes we finally disengaged the kiss and Tabitha was breathing like she just run 800m race up a hill. She looked into my eye with her innocent looking face, I knew that was her first, I was kind of angry that it wasn’t my own first. Peace was the first person to break the seal.

"I love you so much Ben, I’ve been doing so since the day you saved me from my kidnappers” she said surprising me and the first question that came to my mind was "why did you now accuse me of kidnapping you?”

"The reason I accused you then was because I felt betrayed, you’re the first guy I’ve ever love and it was love at first sight, the feeling was very strong and I felt like I’ve loving you from a very long period of time, but when you started talking about my family, things you’re not supposed to know, I thought you’re among them. I hated myself for loving you and wanted to get away from you, but you chased me scaring me more not knowing you’re trying to save me. Especially from the trap, I saw it when we came back that night. Since then I’ve been blaming myself for my actions towards you. Can you imagine how happy I was when dad informed us that you’ll be staying with us that I even dreamt about...?” She suddenly stopped when she was aware of what she was about to say and smiled at me.

Throughout her story, I didn’t interrupt her, I only listened with keen interest and she was still on top of me but I couldn’t feel her weight.

Her facial expression suddenly changed and she looked into my eyeballs.

"Do you love me?" she asked with a serious tone catching me off-guard.

My memory suddenly went blank and I fear for the answer I should give her. Then I heard myself whispered "I do” to her surprising myself.

I didn’t know how the sentence managed to escape my lip but something was certain, that statement made Tabitha very happy as she smiled and lowered her head against mine and we started kissing again.

The events that occurred between Tabitha and I just kept on replaying in my head as we sat inside the car on our way home. She didn’t mind spending all the day kissing me inside the cloth testing room.

I was the one who stopped her and packed all the cloth I tested and have Tabitha’s approval dropping the cloth that caused the scene. I also got some fancy slippers and shoes before we head out of the place.

Tabitha paid the cashier with her credit card, the cashier couldn’t take her gaze off me, she was looking at me with a seductive eye and I could tell that Tabitha noticed it because of her sudden change of mood towards the cashier.

As we were about to get out, a girl ran to me and introduced herself to me without me asking her. She told me she would like us to be friend but Tabitha turned her down rudely and dragged me by my hand to the car. I was a little bit angry with her because of what she did and refused to speak to her on the way home. After some minutes of silence inside the car, she pressed a button attached to the roof of the car and a black shield suddenly blocked the driver’s side from we sitting at the back.

"Are you angry with me” she asked me looking pitiful.

"No!” I sternly replied her.

"Yes, you are, but am sorry, I just got a bit jealous, you’re every lady’s first choice and I couldn’t bear seeing another lady trying to flirt with you” she said with a sober voice.

"It’s okay” I replied her looking at her and smiled.

"Thank you” she said and tried to bring her lip closer to mine but I stopped her.

"Why?” she asked looking surprised.

"What if he tells your dad?” I said pointing to the driver's seat.

"You mean Aliyu?” she asked smiling and I replied "yes” looking worried.

"Don’t worry yourself about him, he can’t hear or see anything” she said jumping on me and started kissing me furiously.

She was kissing and massaging my body with her hand. Her hands were mostly wandering on my chest and I was disappointed with myself because I enjoyed every bit of it. After some minutes of intense kissing, I started getting a pricking feeling from my back, a feeling I always get only when my wings are coming out. I wanted to stop Tabitha at once but Aliyu helped me stopped her when pressed the horn signifying that we’ve gotten home. She disengaged the kiss and sat down adjusting her cloth and I adjusted mine too.

Dandy opened the gate and we entered. She assisted me in getting some of my loads in while I carried the remaining. When we entered, I saw Gabriel and Nina in the sitting room laughing to their fill. They stopped laughing and stood up when they noticed the presence of Tabitha and I.

"And that’s Ben I told you about” she said to Gabriel who was looking at me with his mouth widely opened.

Surprise was thickly written over his face, Nina had to hit him slightly before he got hold of himself.

"And Ben meet Gabriel our best male friend” she said to me and I waved my hand to him.

"Wad up Tabitha?” she greeted Tabitha and she answered him casually.

'We will be back soon” Tabitha said dragging me to my room.

"Are you sure he is human?” I heard Gabriel asked Nina and I smiled.

I was surprised that they’ve quickly settled the incident that occurred the last time. When we got to the entrance of my room I asked her to give me the packs of clothes in her hand but she refused and insisted on taking it inside herself, after much persuasion and she wasn’t yielding, I opened the door and allowed her in.

She closed the door and locked it as soon as we entered, drop what was in her hand and jumped on me kissing me intensely. We fell on my bed and continued the kissing, she clenched tight onto me and was kind of vibrating a little as we kissed.

My hands were only on her waist, nothing else. She suddenly stopped kissing me and started unbuttoning my shirt, I quickly stopped her at once.

"I think we should go and meet Nina and Gabriel downstairs they must have been wondering what took us long” I said standing up and the look of disappointment overshadowed her face.

When we got downstairs, I met Gabriel singing a song and Nina was listening smiling.

"Do you noticed that Gabriel’s voice is almost like a toad own?” Nina said to Tabitha and we all bursted into laugher.

"I don’t think so” Tabitha said siding with Gabriel and Gabriel appreciated her mockingly for it.

"What of you Ben, can you sing better than this toad voice boy?” Nina asked pointing to Gabriel who exclaimed the word "me” in a boastful tone and I replied yes.

"Okay, prove it” Nina said and Tabitha backed her up.

"Which song do you want me to sing?” I asked with pride.

The two girls joined their heads together and whispered some things.

"Sing TELL ME YOU LOVE ME by DEMI LOVATO” Nina said smiling.

"I haven’t heard it before but if you have it on your phone, play it for me once and I promise to sing it” I said with tingling of pride in my tone.

The look on their faces could be best described as that of disbelieve but Nina took her phone, played the song and gave it to me while I listened to it with keen attention, memorising every words of it and the tune being played to it. When I finished listening to it, I gave Nina her phone back she asked me if I was okay just listening to it once and I replied her yes.

I asked if they have any musical instrument, I knew they have keyboard, violin and guitar, the girls pestered their dad to buy it for them insisting that they wished to learn it but after a week of practice they abandoned it and stopped practicing.

Nina, Tabitha and Gabriel brought out the three musial instruments and asked me to chose the one I wished to use. I picked the keyboard and connected it plugged it into one of the electrical socket. I stood it and sat on a stool comfortably in front of it. I clearled my throat then started singing the song.

"�Oh no hear we go again, fighting over what I said, I’m sorry, I’m sorry…”�

I started singing and playing the tune I heard being sang to the song to it, even more better. I closed my eye as I sang it.

�"Everything I need, is standing right in front of me, I know that we will be alright”�

The last lines of the song escaped my lips and I heard clapping from different angles, I opened my eye and was surprised to see Yemi and Ranking also clapping, I didn’t know they were at home even Mona Lisa was clapping and the three friends, only that Nina and Tabitha’s clapping was accompanied with tears on their face, you know women always tend to get emotional in every thing.

"I can’t believe I just heard the most sweetest voice on Earth, it’s just so wonderful” Ranking remarked almost losing words to... "and you’re very good with that” he added pointing to the keyboard.

Everyone of them took turns to accolade me on my performance except Tabitha who was staring at me like a mute.

They made me listen to different songs and I sang it all to them. Some of the songs I sand are "Perfect and shape of you by Ed Sheeran", "Mirror by Bruno Mars and Lil Wayne", "River by Eminem and Ed Sheeran, "Mutual, "Stitches and Mercy by Shawn Mendes", "Pillowtalk by Zayn , "If I was your man by the Vamps, "Sofa and 4days by Kiss Daniel, "I’m Yours by Alessia Cara. "Bodak Yellow by Cardi B, "Havana" by Camila Cabello and Young Thug, "Hate Sleeping Alone by Drake and many more.

If it wasn’t for the calling of the dinner bell, I would have sang to the other day. They didn’t wish for me to stop singing, they it was very cool with the way I was singing and my voice than the real owner of the songs.

Gabriel ate dinner with us before he later went home. Tabitha and Nina throughout supper were blaming me that I made them skip lunch and eat dinner late.

After dinner, Gabriel left for his house while Tabitha, Nina and I retired to our room. I asked for forgiveness for all my sins again and slept off. I woke up when I heard my door creaked gently signifying that someone was sneaking in.

"Who’s that?” I asked almost in a whisper.

"Shush, I’m the one” the person whose voice I recognized to be that of Tabitha said coming close to me.

"Why are you here?” I asked switching the light in my room on.

"I’m having trouble sleeping and I think that will be helped if I sleep with you” she said joining me on bed.

"No you can do that, what if your dad catch you here?” I said looking serious.

"He won’t” she said feigning to be asleep.

After trying to reason with her and she wasn’t yielding, I gave up and slept with my heart in my mouth.

"It would even be easy for me to protect her that way” I assured myself as I slept off.

When she saw that I have given up on sending her out and slept off she cuddled up with me and we slept like that. When I woke up in the morning, she wasn’t on bed with me again, I stood up and saw her leaning against a wall looking at me terrified, I couldn’t decipher why but her gaze was directly on my back.

I looked at my back and I saw my wings protruding from it.

"I can explain” I said with fear as the reality dawn on me.

"You really have a lot to explain” she replied me looking at me with a terror filled eye, just then we heard a knock on the door.

EPISODE 26 (SEMI FINAL)

The end is near...
I looked at my back and I saw my wings protruding from it.

"I can explain” I said with fear as the reality dawn on me.

"You really have a lot to explain” she replied me looking at me with a terror filled eye, just then we heard a knock on the door.

My heart skipped a beat hearing the knock.

"Please hide yourself inside the bathroom” I whispered pleading to Tabitha but she stood where she was not moving.

"I promise to explain everything to you, please just do me this single favour of hiding yourself” I whispered with rubbing my two palms together.

"I’m not doing this for you” she whispered heading to the bathroom.

"I’m coming!” I shouted as the person knocked the door again. I used more effort than I normally use to shut the wings in before I opened the door and met Mona Lisa standing in the entrance.

"Oga talk say make I ask you if you help him see small madam Tabitha” she said staring at me in a weird way which gat me to look at my back, scared that my wings must have being out again, I heaved a sigh of relief when I saw that it wasn’t out.

"You said what?” I asked her as the fear that flashed through my spine before kicked what she said out of my memory but she didn’t answer, but kept on staring at me.

I knew the reason she was staring, that was not the first time such will be happening. I tapped her to return bring her back to world.

"Oga talk say make I ask you if you help him see small madam Tabitha” she said again stuttering in the process.

"No, I haven’t seen her” I lied to her and close the door and locked it from behind.

Tabitha came out of the bathroom at once and sat on the bed. I moved closer to her and knelt down.

"Do you remember this?” I said bringing out my wings and she opened her mouth wide in awe.

"You, you, you..” she stuttered without being able to make a sentence.

"Yes , I’m the one” I interrupted her when it seems she couldn’t make a complete sentence.

I explained everything to her from the Genesis, how she managed to see me then, how we always played before she was born, how she even love me then not sparing any detail out.

I told her how I lost my position when I save Nina. I couldn’t tell what was going through her mind as I narrated everything to her because her expression and mood didn’t change.

After I finished with my narration, she didn’t utter any word, just sat where she was looking at me with a look I couldn’t decipher its content and this made me a little bit scared.

"Thanks for saving Nina and sorry for your circumstances because you choose to save my sister” she finally utter making me feel a bit at peace.

"Tho I’m a little angry because I lost my mom and lost 9 years of my life to oblivion because of the incident that occurred then” she paused using her hand to clean the tears that has already escaped from her eyelid to her beautiful face.

"But it wasn’t your fault and from what you said, you’ve done more for me and it will be shameful of me to hold those two misfortunes that occurred to me on you, I still love you and believe me, your secret is safe with me” she said bringing her face closer to mine and kissed me deeply.

The kiss this time was short unlike the other ones.

"I’ve to go, dad must have turned everywhere upsidedown looking for...” she said after disengaging the kiss. And started heading to the door.

"Promise me one thing” she said stopping abruptly when she was about to get to the door.

"What’s that?” I asked her looking into her beautiful eye.

"Promise me that you will never leave alone" she said startling me and I was lost of words.

What she asked me to promise her was impossible because I was just another pawn on the game board of the Supreme One and He only knows His next move.

"I don’t know” I answered her looking perplexed.

"Okay, we will talk later” she said looking disappointed and headed out.

I sat down on my bed thinking about what she asked me to promise her, then suddenly a dark smoke started emitting from the floor of my room ,almost the same as the one that appeared in Tabitha's room.

I quickly grabbed my sword from where I placed it and stretched it at the flame ready for anything coming out of it.

I watched as the flame started transforming and later moulded out a man, he was in black and backing me, but I could easily tell that it was the person that saved the leader last time and looking at his back, I could tell that I knew him from somewhere.

"Brother Luci!" I exclaimed as the person turned to face me.

"Long time my boy” he said smiling
devilishly.

"How could this happen, are you the ruler that that evil man spoke of yesterday?” I asked looking perplexed.

"Yes my boy, I’m the ruler, the strongest, the powerful and the greatest man on Earth!” he screamed in an awfully terrified voice and lightning started striking unceasingly.

I wondered in my mind if people heard him.

Truth be told ,I’ve been looking forward to the day I will meet Brother Luci, rebellious or no rebellious, I like him, he’s the one who brought himself down to my level and became my friend in Heaven when other angels refused to, taught me how to sing and play all kind of musical instruments. I liked him so much that some days after his rebellion, I’d to fought the thought of joining him on Earth and here he is standing right in front of me.

I felt like hugging him but restrained myself against it.

"Why are you here?” I asked with a stern voice trying to hide what I really felt like asking behind it.

He’s now the antagonist whom I have to protect Tabitha from.

"Just here to see my boy it’s been long since I saw you, I missed you" he said looking like he meant it.

But what have learned in Heaven and some things I’ve came to know about Brother Luci is never to let your guard down when you’re with him, because Luci is very manipulative, cunning and very wise.

"Thanks, but if you’ll please excuse me I have someone to protect” I said pretending as if I was going out.

I knew staying with him for a long time can be very harmful, he can easily get into my head if that is his mission.

"Is this how you’re going to treat me, after many millenniums of years that we’ve seen ourselves?” he said looking pitiful.

"I’m sorry, but you know am here on an assignment and I can’t anchor a-get-together-party right now ” I said trying to hide all what I was really feeling like saying.

"Do you think the Supreme One is going to let you off or have mercy on you after all you’ve done on Earth, even if you jump in a lava just to show that you’re still doing what He sent you to do, you’re merely wasting your time” he said moving closer to me as the reality of what he said dawn on me.

I stood transfixed at the spot I was and I felt all my morale racing out of my body.

"I’ve missed you Benmanna and I would love to have you with me, no matter what you do, join my course and you’ll be free to do anything you wish, love anyone you wish to love without being scared of anyone” he said placing his hand on my shoulder.

It was an enticing offer but he has to do more than that if he want to tempt me.

"Would I be able to live and love Tabitha happily?” I asked him removing his hand from my shoulder.

I was fully aware that Tabitha had to be sacrificed in order for his course to fully kick start and I was sure that brother wouldn’t come here to ask me to sacrifice her in order to join his course. There must surely be an hidden agenda behind his visit. Brother Luci is wiser than that, I thought within myself.

"No, no!” I suddenly scream.

"What have you done?” I screamed loudly in a thunder like voice and quickly grabbed my sword.

"You’ve really grown, not that kid I always hangout with because of pity” he said laughing wildly and brought out the immortal sword.

It was not longer like it was before again, that was when I was able to solve another puzzle about the attack of the other day. Some part of the sword was melted into the sword the evil armies used that day, that was why it was able to make me bleed but lack potency as the real sword.

"Yes, I’m here to distract you while your precious perfect one is being kidnapped” he said pacing around the room slowly in a proud manner.

"No ,that can’t be possible, it’s daytime and it should be easy for me to sense any evil being around” I said looking worried.

"Hahaha...! Hahaha...!! Hahaha...!!! Yes you should, just that I had help from someone who isn’t evil in look but evil in thought” he said confusing me.

I ran outside and everywhere was silent. I ran downstairs and I saw Mona Lisa, but she’s stiff, she wasn’t breathing and not moving, she looked like she was glued to the spot she was, I ransacked the whole house and it was the same for everybody, only that Tabitha was not among the everybody.

I quickly connected to her and was successful with the connection, I brought out my wing and was about to fly when I saw a dagger flying towards me, I quickly dodged it.

"Going somewhere” Brother Luci said laughing wildly, attacked me at once with the immortal sword. It was a brutal fight between the two of us, we were of the same strength, if I was still an angel, I would have defeated him easily
and the sword in his hand was giving him an upper hand over me. I was doing a great job blocking the sword from getting into my body.

It got to a point that he finally knocked me down. As he wanted to stab me I screamed out.

"Killing me and killing Tabitha is only a waste, even if you extract the water of life from Tabitha’s body, you won’t be able to lay your hand on the hakintolite water, you know it only spring in the chamber of the Supreme One and you can get there!” I shouted at him.

"Not if I have help from someone closer to the chamber!” he said laughing wildly again.

"Help” I muttered surprisingly.

"Yes, I gat help, all these should have ended long time ago if not that of you who interrupted the plan” he said looking at me with disgust.

"Brother Lucien” I muttered slowly and lowly.

"You’ve really gotten wiser, I accolade you for that, but it’s too late for you now” he said proudly.

"But Brother Lucien can’t do that, no he won’t do that” I muttered weakly.

"Yes he can and will do that because he’s been with me from the beginning of time, he was my lifeline, that was why I left him in Heaven during my rebellion in case things went south, we didn’t do anything the last time he came as a guardian angel because I want him to earn the trust of the Supreme One and earning it means that he will be sent down again when we will kick start our plan at once because he has already gotten the hakintolite water but you intercepted him and came in his stead, but now, he’s breached the Heaven’s portal, remember
when a disruption occured in heaven, now he’s here with the hakintolite water” he said proudly looking at me with the eye of the victorious one.

Suddenly, someone with wing flew over to where we were standing, I wasn’t a little bit bittered to confirmed all what brother Luci
said when I saw the person to be brother Lucien.

"Long time Ben” he smirked at me and I stared at him with a bitter eye.

"Go Lucifer, the girl is already in the coven, leave Ben to me, we both have an unfinished business to attend to” he said with a wicked grin on his face.

Brother Luci accepted his request and gave him the immortal sword.

"Watch out to how I will destroy the Earth which your father value most” he said before he disappeared into the ground in flame.

"This will be more than an ordinary sparring" brother Lucien said as he charged at me.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

•Do you think Luci and Lucien will overpower Ben in this course?

•In case Ben lose this course, who do you think will help him out?

•Is there any chance of survival for Tabitha?

At least your positive comments are needed to unlock the last episode.
