Luci and Lucien think that they have won the battle this time but funny enough they never know that like everything else they too are mere pawn on the Supreme One chess board.. Thanks Oluspicy, this work is really good

EPISODE 27 (FINAL)
The End is Now
Promise in my perspective isn’t something all human should make, because no one is sure what tomorrow or days to come hold. In Heaven, the Supreme One takes promises very importance, when done to another party, He expected it to be fulfilled or else it becomes a debt on you which you carry around till the day you fulfil it.
That’s why I’m against the idea of promising. Only death can pay the debt of promise but if one dies before fulfilling his or her promise but already had the chance to fulfill the promise but didn’t, then death wouldn’t have enough dime to pay for that person’s promise.
But what would be my fate when I return to Heaven with a debt on me, a shame for eternity.
I made promise to Ranking to protect Tabitha but the promise was already drifting away from my reach and I knew I’ve to fulfill it.
Happy ending, a great phrase that humans so much believe in, tho many were compelled to believe that the phrase will always be the end of their life because of too much movie.
But the real fact is that out of 100% little ones, only 40% always have that phrase while others end in tragedy.
Before all people reading this story will fully indulge themselves to know what finally ended me, I can’t assure you that you might not be disappointed.
As I’ve told you before, not everyone have the opportunity to swim in the river of happy ending.
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.
My time with humans especially Tabitha took it toll on me. I wasn’t very strong, brother Lucien took the pleasure of beating me to pulp, he was much stronger than I was, he dealt with me like a kid. I tried with all my strength to also fight him but I couldn’t land a single punch.
The sword in his hand was burning through my flesh as it touches me because I didn’t have my armour on me. He was inflicting pains on me, I knew it was to make me the feel the pain he felt when I defeated and hurt his pride in the magnificent hall. I knew that the more time I spend with brother Lucien, the closer Tabitha get to death. I knew that brother Luci would have to take her to the middle of the Earth, the water of creation inside Tabitha can’t survive more than a minute on Earth before it lose it potency, so brother Luci would have to take her their before he drains her of her blood and mix it with the hakintolite water.
I screamed in pain as the immortal sword cut through my left rib. The cut accompanied by burning pain sank deep into my body and I fell on my knee with no power or strength left inside me.
"Where’s that strength you displayed in the magnificent hall when you fought me then?” he asked with an angry voice.
"You disgraced me, embarrassed me and made me felt useless and worse of all, you made me lose my pride” he barked in an angry tone.
"Help me, I’m going to die, please save me, my love...”
I heard this tunes which were portrayed in Tabitha’s voice coming to me in a tone that portrayed fear and helplessness.
"I’ve been looking forward to this day ever since the day I came to Earth and now you’ve to pay for treating me that way” he added but I wasn’t listening as the image of Tabitha suddenly appeared in front of me. Tears was streaming down her beautiful face, and she looked helpless and pitiful.
"I know you’ll save me my love...” she said in a melancholy tone and was stretching her hand towards me, I tried to grab it but it disappeared when my hand was about to touch her.
I screamed loudly in anger and lightening started striking in a fearsome manner. Brother Lucien raised his sword to strike me at once but my armor as if being attracted by a magnetic force, flew to where we were and wore itself on me at once shielding brother Lucien's attack.
I stood up at once with a new adrenaline of energy circulating inside me. He tried to attack again but I swiftly rolled on the ground to dodge his attack and picked my sword which was laying on the floor. I turned and striked him from behind with all my strength, he lost balance and felt down but quickly stood up. My sword unlike the immortal sword isn’t capable of killing a meacena but is capable of inflicting pain on him when they’re struck with it.
He groaned in pain as he stretched the immortal sword at me but wasn’t balanced well on the ground as he kept staggering little by little, I knew he was trying to steady himself, I made motion to attacked him again and he quickly raised his sword up to also attack me but I aimed at his hand, as he waved his sword at me, I swerved to my left and quickly struck his hand with my sword and he was disarmed by that move as his sword fell down from his hand.
He quickly wanted to pick it back but I channelled all my strength into my right hand and gave him an uppercut, the force of the punch made him fly a bit before he landed on his back. I weaved my hand a bit in order to get rid of the pain I felt inside it.
The uppercut had so much force that I heard some funny sound inside my wrist, I felt like it was broken.
I picked the immortal sword and moved closer to him. Before he could say jack, the sword was already embedded in his chest. I watched as his body caught fire and bit by bit, it turned into ashes and the wind escorted it into the atmosphere.
I tried to connect with Tabitha but all I could get was a faint connection, I knew it was because she was being travelled underground. I knew their destination and I knew I had a chance of getting there in time to save Tabitha. They were going to Kaba in Mecca, that’s where the middle of the earth is located. But what I wasn’t sure is if I could make it that far in my human form. I wouldn’t have been worried if I was still an angel.
I brought out my wing as I head out of the house. The weather has already change to qualify the impending danger, I can best describe how the weather looked to lunar eclipse. When I got out I flew up at once, and started flying towards Mecca.
All little ones are all stiff, everywhere was silent as cars, lorry, every other vehicles and humans all were glued to the position they were before brother Luci did whatever he did that made them stiff.
With all the speed I could muster, I flew to Mecca, it got to a point, I felt myself blacking out on flight, I knew it was because I overdid it, I was not suppose to be flying such long distance in my human form, but the thought that I have to save the little ones and Tabitha kept me going.
It got to a point, my feathers started coming off, I was still a little bit far from Kaba when this started happening. And I knew if I didn’t make it to Kaba before all will come off, then I will crash midway. With my sore hands and tired self, I increased my pace again and kept on flying. I was getting weaker and I felt myself dying internally and my feathers won’t stop tripping off. I was feeling very thirsty and felt my oesophagus shutting down, I passed many rivers, sea, ocean and many water source but couldn’t have a drop of water because I felt like a second wasted will lead to the eradication of the Earth.
My wings were almost like that of a de-feathered chicken, when I saw the symbol in Kaba, tho I was still a little bit far from it. All the feathers were almost gone, my once glorious feather turned to something of the past. My eyesight was getting blurrier, and I wondered where I was going to get the strength to fight brother Luci and his agents even if I made it.
And it happened that when I was about to get to Kaba, my wings stopped functioning and I crashed on the floor with a loud thud. I fainted at once, tho I tried hard not to but I couldn’t control it. I didn’t not know how long I was gone but when I woke up, I was hearing a loud murmuring from afar, it was like incantation.
I knew it was coming from Kaba and by brother Luci and his agents. That means I got to Mecca before them.
I stood up feeling alright, I was surprised to see my wings on my back again in it full glory. I flew at once and headed to Kaba. My sword at my back and the immortal sword sheathed beside my leg. I saw a great view when I got to Kaba, the agents of brother Luci all having a dark glasses worn on their face formed a big circle chanting, while brother Luci was inside the circle with Tabitha who was tied up like a sacrificial lamb, she looked like she’d sustained many bruises on her body. Brother Luci had a small black knife in his hand and a calabash that looked sacred which I presumed contains the hakintolite water.
Brother Luci suddenly looked up and saw me hovering over them. He gave me a wicked grin which I didn’t know what it was but not for long.
"Plan B!!!” he suddenly shouted and all his agents suddenly brought out an object which I didn’t know what it was, they all hit it on the floor at once and a great blinding smoke filled everywhere. That was when I knew what the work of the sunshade the agents of brother Luci had on.
I was blinded temporarily by the smoke and couldn’t see anything, when the smoke weared off, I saw all brother Luci’s agents with bow and arrows in their hands aiming at me. I was sure the arrow will also have the melted part of the immortal sword in it.
Before I could escape, they all shot at me at a go, I quickly brought out my sword, I was able to use it to shield many arrows but many still find their way into my body and I fell down. I was directly falling into the circle but I didn’t know the force that pushed me away when I was about to land inside it and I fell outside of the circle groaning in a severe pain as the arrows were visibly on my head and my leg, only my chest was left out because of the armour I was having on.
I laid on the ground in pain as I saw brother Luci dipped the knife into Tabitha’s rib. Just then a lightening struck and scattered all the agents of brother Luci. Then I saw as the Heaven opened and the Greater One with brother Michael by his side on flying horses and armies of angels from the warriors department at their back also with sword in their hands.
Brother Luci on seeing this shivered in fear and tried to quickly finish what he started, seeing the backup coming to help me gave me a lot of strength, I stood up and I forced all the arrows playing chess in my body out at once, I ran with speed and with a flying kick, I sent brother Luci away from Tabitha who was bleeding profusely from where she was stabbed. I held her in my hand and started weeping as she looked at me weakly. Her breathing was weak, she looked at me and smile and tear drop released from her eye. She weakly raised her hand up and placed it on my cheek which was already wet with tears.
Brother Michael and the Greater One were already down and captured brother Luci.
"Benmanna” the Greater One called my name as he placed his hand on my shoulder.
"Please save her, she isn’t dead yet, it’s an easy task for you to save her ,please save her” I cried to the Greater One as I wept profusely.
"She’s going to live but you have to back out of this mission and agree that you’re going to allow another guardian angel take over” the Greater One said looking at me with pity.
""I agree, please just save her” I cried agreeing to his condition at once.
He placed his hand on the injured part of Tabitha and she became healed at once and all her bruises disappeared. She hugged me at once and thanked the Greater One for saving her.
The Greater One had to free brother Luci because killing him will foil the prophecy of the battle of Armageddon.
After everything has been settled, I left Tabitha to discuss with the Greater One.
"You made me proud boy, tho I believed in you but after seeing how everything took a sour turn, I didn’t know that you could still be devoted to your mission” he said to me smiling at me and I felt a tingling of pride rose within me.
"Does the Supreme One feel that way too?” I asked the Greater One with a countenance that showed that I was a little bit sad.
"Because of all your sins right?” He asked and I shook my head shamefully.
"I don’t know what the Supreme One is thinking because he didn’t share it with me, but it’s either you’re been punished or rewarded but the percentage that you’ll be punished is high” He replied me and I became scared, I felt like not returning to Heaven again.
"Okay, but who’s taking over from me?” I asked feeling sad.
"Michael” the Greater one answered shocking me.
The fact is that brother Michael has never serve as a guardian Angel before because he’s greater than that, he is the fierce warrior of Heaven and him taking the position of a guardian Angel is a little off.
"Did the Supreme One force him to do it?” I asked looking surprised.
"No, he nominated himself” the Greater One replied stunning me with more shock.
Brother Michael being a guardian Angel isn’t bad, but I feel for all the evil doers that might try to harm Tabitha especially Yemi. Brother Michael is ruthless unlike me that am still a bit merciful. I haven’t seen him smile once ever since have known him and I knew that any wrong move from Yemi towards Tabitha, she’s already gone.
"Okay, it’s good but what will happen to Tabitha, will she be given the honour to live with the memory of seeing you and the angels?” I asked not going into full details of the question.
"The divinity has been exposed too much and we will have to eradicate all the memories from her head and your memories from this Earth making all those who have your memories to forget about you.”
"Including Tabitha too?" I asked interrupting the Greater One.
"Yes” he replied me making me more sad.
"Okay, but can I ask for a favour?” I asked the Greater One with a pitiful eye.
"You’re free to” he replied.
"Please, let me return Tabitha home so that I can have the chance of bidding her farewell before she forget everything about me.
The Greater One contemplated on it for some seconds before agreeing to it.
"But you’ve to make it snappy because in the next one hour, you’ll regain your angelship back and all memories of you will be wiped away from this Earth” He warned me before He placed His hand on my wing and it became very big and stronger.
I thanked him before I moved to where Tabitha was, took her in my hand and started flying.
The journey wasn’t stressful this time and fast. I knew it was the doing of the Greater One. We spent only fifty minute before we got home where everyone were still glued to their spot. I took her to her room, she looked at me smiling and happy but I was sad because it wasn’t going to last.
"Do you remember the promise you asked me to make you this morning” I asked glaring into her eye.
"Yes” she responded.
"Here is my reply” I said and she changed her sitting posture glaring into my eye like if I speak the wrong word, she’s going to eat me raw.
"I can’t be with you forever, I’m going back to Heaven soon and another angel will take charge of in guarding you” I added using all my power to stop the tears lurking behind my pupil.
"No, I don’t want anyone except you, please don’t leave, I’m ready to follow you back to Heaven if it need to be, if you leave me alone, I won’t be able to forget you” she said with tears on her eye.
I couldn’t hold my tears again as I also started weeping profusely.
"You will, you will be able to forget me” I said amidst tears.
"No!, no!!, no!!!” she started screaming loudly.
"You’ve to forget about me, you have to continue living your life happily, get married to a good man, have cute kids and have a pleasant career” I said wiping the tears on her face off.
"Will I be able to see you again?” she asked calming down a little.
"I’m not sure” I answered her.
"Then I think I have to do this for the last time” she said as she brought her head closer to mine and kissed me passionately.
We were still kissing when I felt myself flickering, I knew my time was up. I quickly disengaged the kiss.
"Good bye Tabitha” I said as I finally became invisible and I attained my normal height and stature back.
"Goodbye Ben” she said surprising me.
"Did she not lose the memory if me?" I asked myself rhetorically as I flew out of her room.
I wanted that to be a form of mystery to me which I will be deliberating on when I get to Heaven, whether if she still remember me or not. I was already on my way to Heaven when I felt the urge that my story shouldn’t just be in dark like that, after all I went through, I feel like it’s some kind of compensation to me if people know my story.
I flew to one the highest rock I saw around, sculpted out a part with my sword, and wrote my story on it, I threw it down to Earth hoping it get into the hand of a story writer who will help portray the story of my life on e6arth to the people.
I looked down to the Earth again and started weeping as I knew I was going to miss it. I continued my journey back to Heaven with my heart in my mouth because I know not what await me by the Supreme One, but I thought He should still reward me because I was returning the immortal sword to Him, that was when I remembered that it has been long since I felt the immortal sword on my leg, I touched the place I put it and that was when I knew that I’ve lost the sword.
What now await me, reward or punishment.
I really appreciate you all for taking your time reading through this piece and without no iota of doubt, I believe you have been immersely blessed and learnt one or two didantic attributes from the beginning to the end.
