BOOKS OF REVELATION
Introduction

23 Years Ago

A black Toyota Camry suddenly gutted out fire from the exhaust, moving at top speed on the empty high way. The bright night glittering against the asphalt that looked endless from low point of view with thick woods gracing on both sides of the road.

The car swerved to the right, the tyres screeching horribly on the asphalt, the fire from the exhaust, boomed and grew larger, adding furious momentum to the car, the left back tire popped out from it rims, and rolled furiously into the woods, creating a rebound as it had contact with the road.

The car swerved next to the right and finally lost balance, tumbled several times before coming to a final rest in ruins, all fours facing the sky, and letting out white fumes.

Chunks of metals scattered all over the high way, with the car totally disfigured. Another car drove by minutes later and immediately halted, from it alighted a lady, her face covered by shadows that fell on it, shadows from her hairs. She hurried towards the wrecked vehicle, taking off her heels to allow her increase her pace, on hearing the wailing of a toddler.

Chapter One

Police tape cut across the accident scene, journalist and reporters, taking their position before tape which was used to make demarcation to restrict unauthorized entering. Chattering filled the entire scene as everyone tried to give a report of what they thought had happened.

"From the forensics that was sent in, seems they were running from something" a lady dressed in smart black overall outfit said to the bolder structured man before her, each having dark glasses on their faces

"Which explains the burnt tyre on the road, what ever came after them was not ordinary " the man said

The car maintained it's previous position, partially burnt, the bodies were retrieved by the medical team and carefully packaged into a body bag, laid on a stretcher and immediately they were moved into the nearest ambulance.

"One more thing, Helen said she believed they were about four people in the vehicle, see this case isn't something we could figure, the car has no where to be traced back to, no plate number, blood samples don't match with anyone on the country's data base, neither does their faces" the lady said and softly tapped the man on the shoulder and spoke.

"We will let this one slip "

Present Day

Location: Nigeria
City: Akure
Time: 2:25pm

Dan successfully flagged down a cab which was going his direction, quickly he hopped in, taking the window seat on the right, he let out relieved sigh and greeted those he met in the cab, after exchanging pleasantries, he reacted his head on the window frame, the soothing afternoon breeze blew on him, which slowly began to make him grow dizzy.

"Is that a natural eye or contact lenses" the young lady seated beside him asked, after moments of taking quick glance at his eyes.

Dan smiled with heavy eyes and replied
"Natural " he said and rested his head back on the window frame.

"Wow, are you an half cast? "
These questions were not so new to Dan, apart from his eyes, he averagely built body also added more to his physique, chocolate toned skin and red hair, which had made him resulted in using face caps at all time he was going public.

"No, I'm a Nigerian " Dan replied, hoping the girl doesn't ask more questions.

"Your hair" She said, with a bright smile.

Dan sighed and adjusted the face cap, making it completely cover his hair which were out. He ignored her and retrieved the earpiece around his neck, and placed both pieces into his ear, and rested his head, closed his eyes and slowly drifted asleep.

***

Dan found himself standing alone on an empty beach, which looked endless, the seas and the beach sand, both endless on both sides. He looked down and saw blood beneath him, a crashed vehicle slowly took form, distance away from him, he blinked his eyes and in an instance was a girl trying to save who ever was in the crashed vehicle, screaming at the top of her voice.

"Hey, ogbeni, wake up, na last bus stop we dey so" Dan heard a faint voice call at him

He slowly opened his bright blue eyes, and noticed he was the last person in the cab, he wiped the sweat beads around his forehead before alightiing the vehicle. He payed the driver, who zoomed off immediately.

"Who ever you are" Dan said and shook his head slowly, feeling exhausted, he adjusted his face cap and adjusted the ear piece before attempting to cross to the other side of the road.

City: Cienfuegos

"Every night, about to eighteen years ago, I keep having dreams, similar dreams about this boy, I don't know him, every time, I see him trying to save people from a crashed vehicle, but whenever he turns to look at me, I wake up" Sonita said looking straight into her mother's eyes.

Whatever it was, she was certain a message she didn't understand was been pass done to her and probably responsibilities followed along side. Same dream for eighteen years wasn't something she was taking any lightly

Noticing her mother's awkward silence she spoke again.

"Is there something you are not telling me?" Sonita asked.

Her mild large eyes which were of blue colors so much complimented her features that she had won various beauty shows during her childhood days and now she had dived down the modelling industry, which didn't seems like a challenge to her.

"No, there isn't, we will get to the root of this, I promise" Her mother replied, handling Sonita's hands lightly, with a bright smile on her face.

"You'll be late for your audition, I'll leave for the kitchen, prepare you something light and we start the day with positivity " her mother said and stood up from the chair she sat on, leaving Sonita to her thought.

Sonita sighed and laid flat on her bed, stared towards the ceiling and shut her eyes.

BOOKS OF REVELATION 2




Chapter 2
A top grade military vehicle drove roughly into a bank premises, smashing the entire gate off the pillar, then applied brakes, which brought the vehicle to a stand still, after the tyres had screeched hard against the concrete floor, leaving dark marks along the trials.
People acted on survival instinct, diving off the way of the vehicle. The top roof of the vehicle popped open, fell hard to the ground, and for a while, silence fell on everyone. Smoke grenades shot out from the roof top of the vehicle, which immediately sent panic into everyone around.
The security guards took caution steps forward, holding tight to their batons.
"Na this kind situation person dey need gun, or that thing wey dem dey show for America film wey dey shock person " one of the guards said, beads of sweats forming around his face.
The smoke from the grenade quickly spread all over the vicinity, creating a thick fog. The heavy doors of the vehicle slide open, and from the vehicle, five armed gun men alighted, and didn't hesitate, they fired rapid shots at the guards.
"Move move move" the leader shouted, cutting his right hand through the air, and holding firm to hisbgun which was strapped around his waist with his left hand.
Two gun men hurried towards the booth of the vehicle and flipped it open, pulled out a huge power damper, each holding the heavy rectangular object by the handle. They hurried towards the revolving door that led into the bank and placed the power damper before it, flipped a switch and quickly retreated to take cover behind the pillars of the bank.
The engine hummed loudly and let out a loud blast which shook the entire building vigorously, the action, leaving cracks on the walls.
The other gunmen strapped their guns around their back and proceeded forward, leaving two others behind to keep watch. The two gunmen who took cover by the pillar, smashed the butt of their guns hard against the door. The glass shattered and they made their way in, their boots grinding the glass pieces beneath them into smaller particles.

"I told you, the police don't have the guts to come after us" a gunman said, as he closed the rooftop of the vehicle and the driver zoomed out of the bank.
"You did good today Dan" another masked man said and pulled off his mask, then let out a loud sigh of relief.
"Everyone gather around, Fife, take the route we planned, it's a lone way, it will clear our tracks, we plan on sharing this equal" the leader said and raised his mask above his eyes, revealing the thick slash mark the cut across his right eyes down to the jaw.
"Dan, I'm giving you something extra, you did good, those dampers eased our job a lot" the leader said and stashed more naira notes into the bag he would be giving to Dan.
Dan smiled as he watched more currencies stashed and retrieved a cigarette from his gadget belt and lit it. He pulled up his mask, and stuffed the cigarette into his mouth and puffed out smoke, then relaxed his head on the chair.

Dan, dressed in a black round neck shirt, a blue face cap on his head, he walked into the orphanage before him and went straight for the offering box and brought out a brown envelop from his pocket and forced it into the box through the open space on top of the box. He stood blankly for a while, deep in his own thought.
From the top window of the orphanage home, was a priest who always stood by the window, and most times he was opportuned to see Dan, dropping by at the same hour of the day, dipping envelopes into the offering box, watch him stand still for ten minutes before he finally takes his leave.
Dan turned around to take his leave, getting to the exit, he moved aside to allow the lady that was coming in pass before he proceeded.
"You! " the lady exclaimed, with her mouth wide agape, clutching loosely to her hand bag.
Dan fixed his gaze on her, her face wasn't one he could remember.
"I knew we would met again, I'm the girl from the cab, two weeks ago, I'm Timi" the girl said smiling brightly, which even made her more beautiful, her rounded face completely filled with excitement.
She stretched her right hand forward to exchange handshake with Dan who only nodded his head and attempted to take his leave.
Timi blocked his path and looked at him with a straight face.
"What's up with you, I know guys who would jump at the opportunity of me giving them this gesture, do you think I'm cheap, or because you're handsome, I know people who are much more handsome than you are, blue eyes and red hairs don't freak me" She said and sniffed at Dan who moved back a bit as she leaned closer.
"I have important things to do" Dan said and walked passed her, squeezing his body through the open space.
"If we are meant to be friends we will met again, I love the cold attitude " Timi said shouting at the top of her voice "I'm not crazy, I only talk to people I like" she said, her voice dropping into a low pitch.
The Priest who had been watching well that happened, bowed his head, and shook it lightly

Location: Cienfuegos
Time: 2:54AM
Sonita rolled around her bed, feeling restless, mumbling inaudible words as she roughed her bed sheet, moving her hands inconsistently. She suddenly jumped off her bed, panting heavily, she sighed feeling severe headache.
What she experienced was new, it wasn't a dream, it was something she couldn't explain, all she could tell was, something was missing in her, she could feel it for the very first time.
She climbed down her bed, wore her white fluffy slippers, and headed to the kitchen. She switched on the lamp and proceeded towards the refrigerator to get herself something cold to relieve her of the stress.
She suddenly felt cold, and noticed human presence behind her, with foul odor. Her eyes wide open, with fear written all over her face. She slowly turned around and behold, what she saw next shook her down to the very core.
Sonita let out a loud scream, shouting at the top of her face. Before poo ready her were two humanoids dripping with blood all over their body, their attire soaked with dried blood.
Part of their faces were off and disgusting, revealing the skeletal structure beneath. While screaming she noticed something awkward, the expressions on the faces of these horror were that of sorrow and pity, which immediately made her calm her voice.
"Who are you? " she summouned the boldness to talk, without flinch.
"You have to find him" the man before her said in a sad voice and turned his back around.
"Who and what is all this about? " Sonita asked confused.
"He has the key" the female said and also turned around.
Sonita watched in awe as they both turned into dust, and from nowhere came a strong wind which blew off the dust particles.
"Hey honey, why are you down by this time?" her mother asked, walking in on her, she went straight for a wall cupboard and opened it, brough out a sealed plastic and looked around for a knife
"I was feeling thirsty, so I decided to come get a drink " Sonita lied and grabbed a can, wondering how we come her mother didn't hear her loud scream, then retired to her room
***
***
Dan opened the door that led to his home, a one room apartment, only to walk in and see a strange figure sitting on the only leather chair in the room.
"Who are you? " Dan asked standing by the door.
The figure slowly rose up, a large spiky club on the right hand.
"Who I am isn't really important, it is what I want that is, now tell me, where is the key? "

Dan flipped the switch on the wall and sighed relief on seeing who it was with the club and scary acts. He walked forward, while the other person went into loud roar of laughter.
"No tell me say that thing scare you " the boy asked, and dropped the rubber club on the ground, laughing hard.
"There are levels to some things, that was an expensive joke" Dan said faking his displeasure "What do you want, always breaking into my home whenever you wish "
"Nothing, I got an invitation, to a modelling show, a ticket for two, so I thought we should move together " the boy said and sank himself on the only chair in the room.
"I'm sure, it's a ticket for a boy and a girl, no be boy boy, abeg na only one hole I get and na to do another thing" Dan said and opened his wardrobe, removed his shirt and neatly hanged it.
"Well, since man got no love, it's not necessary, who knows you might meet someone you love, even if your heart is hardened "
"Chucks free me abeg" Dan replied and continued "Your experience is enough red sign, she broke up and what, you begin ask your parent how much them dey rent shop say you want drop out, Werey, You go chop noodles, that what I plan on taking this night"
"As fine as you are, see the unnecessary stress you're passing through, eheheh, add two for me"

"Sonita, check this one out, it fits perfectly" a lanky lady said with excitement written all over her face, spreading out a silver coloured short gown, around the shoulder levels as she hastened her steps towards Sonita who stood before a large standing mirror, admiring the blue gown she had on her.
"Maria, I'm only going there for exposure, I'm not contesting, Mama Rica only wants me to gain more experience, I should dress as simple as I can " Sonita said, calmly, while checking out herself.
"I know, but your appearance matters and you know I want the best for me dear friend" Maria said with watery eyes.
"Huhh those eyes, alright, hand it over"
Maria beamed with excitement and walked closer, and carefully passed the cloth over to Sonita.
"Huhmm, Matt called, and I told him you'd be leaving for Nigeria in two days time"
"Matt called or you called Matt, Maria, I told you I've moved from that train, Matt hurt me so much" Sonita said from the changing room.
"Yeah I know, and he has been pleading, can't you see it, give him one more chance, at least let him go with you, I know you two will get along"
"Well, Mama Rica is the one taking us all along, there is no chance he is coming, let that pass Maria " Sonita said already getting frustrated.

Dan walked into the building of the orphanage home and as usual headed to the offering box, a face cap around his face, a red shirt and plain black trousers, he retrieved an envelop from his right pocket and began inserting it into the box, through the small opening on it.
"I'll like to invite you for a drink" a strange but calm voice said behind Dan.
Dan paused for a little while, then pushed in the envelop, he turned around and saw it was a priest standing before him.
"Father" Dan said and bowed his head a little.
"Walk with me" he urged Dan and began walking deeper into the orphanage through the walkway.
The both walk through the walk way, taking the right turn after the first visitation building. They continued for few more minutes and began to approach, the orphanage cathedral.
The Priest pushed open the door, that lead into the cathedral, walked towards the left and opened the door before him. They both entered the small cozy room, which had mini library at the far end, a mini chandelier having above, which illuminated the room.
"What is your name?" the Priest asked and walked towards the refrigerator on the right angle of the room, inches away from the library shelf.
"Dan"
"Dan, I've always noticed you, three months, always coming at same hours and days, to give the little you have, which makes me think you have a record of being hopeless, like you've been through a lot" the priest said still at the refrigerator.
"I don't understand "
The Priest smiled and turned around, two bottles of a Chapman drink on his left hand, while he used the right to shut the fridge.
He offered Dan a seat and passed a drink to him, while he placed his on the table and open the lid.
"You grew up in an orphanage" the Priest said with certainty in his voice.
Dan kept mute for a long while and slowly removed his cap, revealing his curly hairstyles. The Priest smiled, after taking a brief look at Sam's hair, it was then he noticed the blue eyes.
"I grew up at an orphanage in Katsina" Dan replied and continued "I've been there since I was a toddler, unfortunately I had no foster parents, reasons not known to me" Dan replied and dipped the opening of the bottle into his mouth and sighed.
"Did you ever care to find out why?" The Priest asked calmly.
"No, who cares? " Dan replied, faking a smile.
"Do you wish to know? "
"No"
"Sometimes, self discovery is what leads you on your next wave of life, when you wish, I might show you the way to get answers, but you thread that path alone" the priest and next the door came open.
Dan turned around to see who it was only to see it was the lousy girl he had come across first in the can and next at the entering of the orphanage.
"You" the girl said and threw her bag to the floor
"My ward, Tinu, forgive her behaviour"
"I'm taking my leave Sir, thanks for the pep talk" Dan said and fixed his cap before standing to take his leave.
"Is he going to ignore me like I wasn't here? "
Dan walked passed her and shut the door.
***
***
Dan walked into an eatery and found himself a spot, he made his orders and waited patiently as the young waitress that attended to him, walked towards the next customer to pen down their orders also. His phone vibrated, and he retrieved it from his pocket and swiped the screen.
"Chucks, wetyn dey? " Dan asked and relaxed his back on the chair.
"I never asked you to buy me clothes, now you'll get here and ask triple of the money as refund, you think it's easy to get the money ba.......... Alaye no dey reason me, I go wear Wetyn I get... Dress to kill, maka kill you there.... No no, don't fix any date for me... Chhuu" the line went off.
Dan sighed frustrated and placed his phone on the table, just then it rang again, this time the caller was an unknown person.
"Hello... yeah, but it's a slight misunderstanding.. No.. I didn't ask for a hook up... Hell" the caller went off again.
"I'll kill Chucks " Dan said and stood up, looked around and walked out in annoyance.
***
***
Dan found himself standing at the top of a building, bounded in chains, he looked down from the height and tried freeing himself from the bonds of the shackles. He heard grunting sounds behind him, like someone attacking multiple people and managed to turn around. Soaked in blood was a girl he knew not, panting heavily, a fancy dagger on both hands.
"Let's get you out of these" She said and slashed her dagger at the chain, making it break easily.
"Thank you" Dan said
He suddenly jumped off bed, panting heavily and sweating all over his body, he took a quick glance at his timer and saw it was two at midnight.

Chucks killed the engine of his power bike, just then Dan walked out, dressed in a blue pkainnshirt and a black trouser, his hair fell behind his head, held together with gels.
"I thought I would still get here and begin begging you, before we move" Chucks said sarcastically.
Dan smiled, standing firm, he let out a broad smile as a Lexus jeep rolled in, parking behind Chucks, the glass rolled down, revealing an elderly man.
"Mr. Dan right? " the man asked, staring at his phone and back at Dan.
Dan raised his phone up and winked at Chucks.
"Guy, this is betrayal of all order" Chucks said with his mouth wide open.
"Chill, meet me there bro "
"Wait, na me get outing and you want shine my shine" Chucks shouted as the car zoomed off.

Chucks killed the engine of his bike, and alighted, sniffed the air for a while, and sighted Dan standing by the entrance of the venue, focused on his phone. Chucks smirked and walked up to him and hit him slightly on the shoulder.
“You just sly me like that ba?, seems we are right on time” Chucks said and adjusted his suit.

Dan smiled and dipped his phone into his pocket and tagged behind Chucks.
They both walked into the hall, and found themselves a front row seat, minutes later the host walked up to the large podium and next were dim lights that filled the entire hall except the podium.

Hours into the program, Dan yawned softly and leaned his head on Chucks shoulder, already bored by the parade that was going on, which seemed not to end.

“Guy carry your head na, that place is only meant for ladies” Chucks said and raised his shoulder up.

“This place reeks, I am going outside to catch some air” Dan said and gently used his right hand to trail his hair before standing up.

“Wait” Chucks said and also stood up.

Sonita walked out of the event hall through the back door and walked towards the main gate. Her fluffy gown moving gently to the rhythm of the cool night breeze.

“Sonita” She heard a familiar voice called at her, no one had to tell her who it was.

She hastened her steps, without looking behind, she knew he was also following her, trying as fast as possible to catch up with her.

She suddenly bumped into someone, and let out a soft gasped. She smiled calmly and raised her head up to look at who she bumped into, so she could apologies.

“Are you alright?” Dan asked, holding her softly by the shoulders.

Sonita went dump for a while, finding it hard to find her voice, something strange was up, they both could tell

“Sorry have we met” Dan asked, trying to recollect where he had come across her before now.

“Sorry about that” Matt said from behind, with a bright smile.

With a similar gesture, Dan returned the gesture and watched as they both left, walking out of the gate.

“What just happened there?” Chucks asked, arriving late at the scene.

“Nothing jor, just some random person bumping into each other” Dan replied and continued forward.
***

Dan flipped the bulb switch on the body of the wall and let out a frustrating sigh, while Chucks walked passed him and slumped into the only chair, straing blankly at the ceiling.
“I said it, I knew that girl” Dan suddenly shouted out of regret “I should have known earlier, I have to find her”
“Dude, chill abeg” Chucks said slowly and sat himself up “What about her?”
“You know about the dreams I always told you about?” Dan asked pointing at Chucks.
“Yes, what about it?” Chucks asked, not getting the connection Dan was driving at.
“She is from there, she is the one I always saw”
Chucks suddenly let out a sarcastic laughter and slumped himself into the chair and purposely fell to the ground, clinching to his stomach.
“Damn you” Dan said and banged the door angrily, he had to find her.
“Alright, the thing is, those people are from Cuba, they were invited and she is with them” Chucks said still on the floor.
“How do you know this?”
“Well, I saw a chick I liked so I went up to her, she dished me her details, and luckily I saw your dream girl with the crew” Chucks said and stood up.
“For the first time, you are useful” Dan said and walked out of the room.
“Guy, where you dey go?” Chucks asked and laid himself back on the chair.

“So you finally came around” The Priest said to Dan and passed him a soft can drink.
“That revelation you said you could help me get, I think I am ready”
The Priest smiled and nodded his head, sipped from the can and beckoned to Dan.
“Follow me” He said and walked towards the library shelf, placed his hand on a book and slowly the shelf moved apart, revealing a dark entry

Sonita watched as her mother, held her hands tight in disapproval of her decision to go back to Nigeria alone, and find what she thought was what she needed to be the answer to her dreams. This time she was keen on following her own decision, even though she knew how tough it could be
“You don’t have an option in this mom” Sonita said and freed her hands from her mother’s grip.
“All these, the dreams, the solution you think you saw, the boy who looks familiar, this is not you Sonita”
“If you really loved me, you would encourage me to find solution to these constant dreams, I keep on having these strange dreams every single night and you think its normal, for more than twenty years now, every single day” Sonita said starring deep into her mother’s eyes and continued “Unless if there is something you are not letting me know, sometimes I have these feelings like this isn’t home, when I was in Nigeria, it felt more like home”
“But this is home, I am your mother Sonita”
“Good night Mah” Sonita said and stood up from beside her mother on her bed and walked towards the door and placed her right hand on the door knob. “I am leaving tomorrow” She said and walked out, closing the door silently.
Her mother sniffed out loudly, her gaze focused on the reading lamp, on the table beside the edge of her bed. Worried, she laid on her bed and curled herself up into her blanket sobbing silently. She knew sooner or later, the truth would be revealed, but she was willing to conceal it for as long as possible.

Dan fell hard to the ground, his eyes glowing white, his hairs also seemed to grow longer than they were, panting heavily in the dark room, which was illuminated by the lamps at the corners of the rectangular alter. The Pries closed the ancient looking book with him and laid it back on the alter, and knelt down beside Dan and began to speak.
“All my life, I haven’t seen such powers, pure abilities that are yet to be explored” he said calmly, squatting beside Dan.
“What do you mean?” Dan asked confused.
“You my boy, are a pure source of power but something is missing, something important” The Priest said with a worried tone and sighed.
“The girl I saw in the revelation, I saw her yesterday, like I had known her for eternity” Dan said and raised his head to look at the Priest.
“Over the years, we thought of this ability to have been corrupted, these powers are passed down by something called OHA, from ancient dwellers, they chose two soul mates to carry this power and protect their villages, from intruders, especially during the time of slave trade” The Priest said and paused, while he helped Dan to his feet.
“The carriers of these powers possessed extra ordinary ability, according to the animal spirit embedded in their DNA, powers ranging from, super hearing, super speed, healing ability, super strength, and any other you could think of, but suddenly we stopped seeing these powers, we believed it was gone, never to return, but here you are Dan with the ability to rule the world” the Priest said and sighed softly.
“These powers you talk about, how do I unlock them?”
“Careful boy, with these powers comes greed, covetousness, over zealousness, dark heart and above all, ability to suppress those around you, which gradually transcend into hate, and suppression of other wider organization, its best you don’t unlock this power” the Priest said with concern.
“If I have this power, that means a threat has arise, or is arising which we don’t know”
“There is only one way to unlock this, you have to find the girl you always see, she is your soul mate, which you have to have the ultimate bond with before these powers are unlocked”
Dan stared at the Priest and nodded his head in understanding and looked away, confused and thinking of how to get the girl.
The door that led to the alter room, creaked loudly which drew their attentions.
“Who is there?” The Priest asked and took closer steps, he noticed a shadow run pass.
“We have to go” he said to Dan.
***

Sonita alighted from the cab she boarded baack to the event center, and stood by the gate, hoping for some miracle of some sort to happen. She knew somehow she had to be here but what happens next she didn’t know. She leaned on the wall and sighed at her foolishness, not thinking things through before she acted. Against her mother’s will she came back to Nigeria.
“Hey you!” a voice called at her.
She slowly raised her head up and almost went paralyzed on seeing Dan walking up to her.
“You are the girl from the show” Dan said and removed his face cap, revealing his brown hairs.
“It is you from my dreams” She said, her eyes fixed on Dan’s blue eye, not that hers was any normal, she also had set of dark green eyes.
“What is your name?” Dan asked with a smile
“Sonita, I know you are Dan”
“Why did you come back here?” Dan asked.
“I need answers and I am certain that is why you are also here” she said with certainty and held tight to her purse.
Dan looked around and nodded his head in agreement.
“Come on, I might know where the answers are” He said and stretched his hands forward.
Sonita starred at him for a while and slowly stretched her hand forward, and suddenly, the wind around them went up furiously, transformed into a whirlwind and surrounded them.
People around didn’t wait to see what happens next as they all took to their heels, others taking covers from near houses and cars.
They both disappeared into thin air as the whirlwind died down.
