I couldn’t believe my eyes. I couldn’t
believe it was Nmeka sitting on my bed. Out
of fear, I opened my mouth to scream but
couldn’t produce any sound!
What could have happened to my voice. I
made to open the door which I was leaning
on, in order to run away but it refused
opening. I fell to the ground with a mighty
My heart was beating very fast.
Nmeka laughed and laughed and laughed
again. I stood up,leaning my back tightly
against the door. I wished I could disappear
through it at that point in time.
“Nmeka please don’t kill me please, please
o, I am sorry please”I managed to speak at
She laughed again and stood up, coming
towards me. I almost fainted. I was panting
I wished the ground can open up and
swallow me. As she came closest to me, I
closed my eyes. Trembling, I could feel hot
water dripping from my trousers. I knew it
was my own urine. I urinated on my body. “Open your
commanded. Her voice at this time was filled
with anger and rage.
I opened my eyes helplessly. I made to say
something but she shouted at me to keep
quiet. “Jude, since I died my spirit has been
restless. You must go and tell my parents
what happened to me. Secondly, you must go
to the police and find out where they kept my
body. I can not be buried in another man’s
land. I must be buried in my father’s
Do these and you will live, or I will kill you
after making you confess publicly”Nmeka
She came closer to me that it was just an
inch or two separating us. I felt cold shivers
running down my spine.
I opened my mouth in a gape. how can I do
these things she commanded me to do. She
further told me to go to her school and ask
about her room mate, that she will help me
locate her parents. She told me that I had 3
days left to do all she has said or I will die.
I opened the door, this time, it yielded. I
came out of my room sweating profusely and
panting like one who ran a race. It dawned
on me that i was in a very big trouble, oh 2go
has dealt with me.
Why are all these happening to me why me.
I cried. I really cried.
Two known cultists who lived in my lodge
were finally arrested by the police that
fateful day, leaving me very surprised. I
couldn’t imagine what the police had on
That very night, I couldn’t sleep. I kept
hearing Nmeka’s voice over and over again.
If I close my eyes, it was her image I would
Very early the next day, I packed few of my
clothes in a little bag and headed to Nmeka’s
school to find her room mate. I had to do
what she said in order to live. I am the only
child of my parents. While all these were
going on, I hide them from my parent.
I got to her school that morning and saw
her room mate locking the door,with a little
travelling bag by her side. it seems she was
about travelling too.
She didn’t recognise me because the day I
visited it was almost dark. I told her I am
Nmeka’s friend. She looked at me with
suspicious eyes. “Where is she, she has been
missing, have you seen her?” She went on
I rather told her”I want to see her parents,
can you be of help?” She replied that she was
going to the village to settle things with
Nmeka’s parents. She told me that Nmeka’s
parents accused her of knowing what
happened to their daughter since they lived
in the same room. I pitied the poor girl.
I was relieved that at last i would see her
parents. But I never knew what awaited me.
