“This is why you are here” the king said and nod his head for the lady to do whatever it is she want to do.
She sprayed some white substance in front of the drum and make some incantations, then I saw something in the drum, people fighting war, with swords not even gun.
“What is this?” I ask.
“This is what’s coming if we don’t stop it” the king said.
“This doesn’t look real and what has it got to do with me?” I ask.
“I heard you have been to the dead before, you are the key to stopping it” he said.
“But I was only dreaming then” I said.
“Are you sure it’s just a dream?” He said.
“Yes it is, though there are some things I couldn’t decipher” I said.
The lady walk in front of me, walk around me for sometime and said.
“No it wasn’t a dream, the gods are angry with us and they want to destroy us, going to dead is the only way to stop it, you must travel there and open the bridge between the dead and the living” she said.
“Why must I open the bridge?” I said.
“Because long ago, there was a warrior, a very strong giant from Benin here, he can help us fight the battle and even stop it from happening, but we need him to be able to come back, we tried all we can to summon him, you will go to him and tell, his people need him, you will show him this staff and he will know what it means” the lady said.
“Waoh, this is too much for me, please I need sometime to think about all this, wait you mean I will go alone to the dead to bring back a great strong giant, this is funny, what assurance do you have that I will succeed? Where can I even find him? Won’t I be killed the moment I step inside the land of the dead?” I ask so many questions.
“You won’t be going alone, you will go with your friends, the people that make you succeed in your first adventure, you will be given everything you need to succeed because if you fail, the world is gone” she said.
I need your comments to continue, I want to know what you think.
