I return to the room they kept me earlier and started thinking about what they said, of course I have heard the story about the strong giant that helped Benin conquer so many ancient wars, though I thought its just a story, a legend.
But why him? Is there no other strong men that can stop the war? He is definitely not the only strong man around, maybe unless he has something to do with the coming Armageddon.
Of course I don’t have a choice I will have to accept, this is not a dream this is real which means if I die I die for real, I will have to be very careful, may God help me.
I return to the king and told him that I accept, that I will go to the land of the dead to bring back the giant.
“Now we are talking, but at first you need to find your friends and convince them to go with you” the king said.
“Wait, why not just bring them here and tell them to follow me?” I ask.
“Because they don’t know who they are, they don’t know the power they have inside them, they are living like humans but they are immortals for real, I will give you a map where you will find them” he said.
“How am I going to convince them to follow me?” I ask.
“I believe when you find them you will know what to do” he replied handing over a map to me.
“This first map is where you will find your friends, each one of them is represented by a star, this second map contains the footprint of the land of dead, when you go there, the footprint of Joromi will appear” he said.
“Who is Joromi?” I ask.
“He is the giant you are going to get” he said.
“Okay then, I guess am ready” I said.
“One more thing, here is my last born, she will hold the staff because she knows the meaning, she can protect you on the way” he said as a lady walk inside the room wearing a full hijab like a Muslim.
She walks in and remove the hijab from her face.
“Hello, am Adesua” she said giving me her hand, I shook hands with her.
“Am sorry but I don’t need a princess watching my back, me and my friends can handle the job well” I said.
“We know that but I need my blood by your side because she understands many things you don’t” the king said.
I agreed not that I have a choice anyway, I followed them to a red Hummer bus, we both enter as the driver drive us to Email land, the land where I will find all my friends I need, but who will I go for first?
