I cut the call and throw the phone on the bed, seems like she still care very much for me, well I don’t want her here, let her focus on her husband, am the devil now that am a vampire, I can take care of myself, I will kill adaeze and everybody that stand with her, she have the mind to turn her father to a vampire, she will pay for it, but to be sincere it was my fault for killing her baby, turning me to a vampire is her own form of revenge, so let me just seek for solution first before I think of what to do next.
Around ten in the night I came out from my compound, everywhere is still busy, aba people no they quick sleep, they like night party like Benin people.
I went to the MCC junction and enter bus since the government banned keke once it’s past eight, they said they use it to rob in the night.
We waited for the bus to full before we take off, I was so tempted by the lady beside me, I can smell her blood as they run through her veins, I can see the blood flowing, I can hear her heart beat pumping blood to her body, I don’t think I will be able to resist for long so I turn my face to the window, the bus stop at Ariaria, I came down and started trekking to the center of the market, everywhere was quiet, the only noise you hear are those from rats, cockroaches, and owl.
I was wearing complete black with a facecap, I don’t want to be recognized, I walk to the center where I first enter to kill adaeze baby, when I got there I heard a creaking sound, and them something ran past me, I look back but didn’t see anything, the good thing about this is that I can see through the dark, but I was a little scared because am alone in the dark, I went inside the dark hall, all shops are locked as expected but there’s one still open with a candle light inside, I was scared as I walk to the one shop that is still open, my heartbeat started beating very fast, I have been here before I really don’t know why am so scared now, I don’t even have this power last time.
I walk to the shop and look inside gently, I saw a baby, maybe seven years old just sitting on a stool and crying.
I face the shop and brought out my knife, I know she’s not a baby, she’s a witch she’s just trying to gain my sympathy, am going to give her hell if she don’t answer my questions.
I climb the store and hold my knife ready for her, the moment she saw my knife she stood up and stop crying.
“Don’t hurt me am a little baby” she said and started shifting back step by step as I walk closer to her.
Me: where’s your mum little one, and why are you here alone?
Baby: my mum left me in the market, she said she will come back am still waiting for her. (She said crying)
Me: why do you have fire Burns on your body (I said as I notice her body)
Baby: I was inside here when this market caught fire, my mum say she will come and carry me but I have not seen her,
Me: how long have you been here?
Baby: I can’t remember, it’s very long (she said, there was a time the market caught fire, so many people lost their life, a woman lost her little girl in the fire)
Me: so would you like to go home?
Baby: yes, will you take me home?
Me: I will if you help me, what’s your name?
Baby: my name is oluchi
Me: good, I will take you back to your mum if you tell me where I can find adaeze.
Olu: who’s adaeze?
Me: a tall fair girl, she’s a witch with a hot temper, she stored her egg here last time she was here.
Olu: I don’t know her but I can take you to a place.
Me: which place?
Olu: every night by this time, some people gather in a circle and discuss, it’s over there (she said pointing to one direction)
Me: take me there
She walk pass me as I follow her from behind, she open a downstair that doesn’t exist in real life, the downstair is like another home, though there are only three buildings, with one heavy mansion like that of queen Elizabeth.
Olu: they gather inside that mansion and do somethings.
Me: what kind of things?
Olu: I don’t know, they don’t allow any person in.
Me: okay, thank you, go back to the market when am coming back you will come with me
She walk back to the main market, I don’t know how to take her back but I will figure a way out, she’s in-between world thinking her mum is still coming, am gonna figure a way out to save her.
I look at the mighty mansion, “where do I start from”? I ask myself.
This is another world entirely, a world for the dead I presume, there’s no sky everywhere is just dark, but there are candle light everywhere like street light, funny thing the candle never burn out.
I walk the candle light part into the mansion, and just like Oluchi said, in the middle of the mansion there are like eight women all wearing red gown, they are sitting on a red throne forming a circle, there’s a candle in their middle burning out, a red candle.
I walk inside the mansion making sure I don’t make any creaky noise, I don’t want to be noticed, I took my knife out and walk inside the mansion, they closed their eyes and didn’t even notice me, are they playing me or what?
“Hello ladies” I said.
They opened their eyes at once and one of them probably their leader stand up and wave her hand around me, a force moved me away from where I was and landed me on a high table, destroying the table, I was weak as I moan in pain.
The lady came closer to me but before she could see me I use my super speed to get up and ran outside the mansion, those are strong witches and I can’t defeat them.
