‘ welcome to cape town , south Africa. Hope you have a nice ride here.’ a voice said in the radio.
I sighed and looked out of the window inside the bus I boarded. I was visiting my estranged sister , and I guess I’ll be living with her. After that dreadful incident that almost ruined my life, the parish priest decide I stay with Giselle , she’s my estranged sister.
The bus trolled and stopped. I looked through the window and jump down .
” Wow.” I said to myself.
I held my box and rolled it gently. Giselle was supposed to wait at the park. I looked around but I didn’t see her.
I strolled around and later found myself in an alley. I don’t even know where she stays. I was really tired and it was getting dark.
‘ this is Giselle , please leave a message..’ her voicemail keep repeating each time I call .
I stood at the alley and pace around , I was really tired.
” Hey you’re lost ?” A guy asked.
” Not really , I’m waiting for my sister.” I replied.
” Really or you need some help ?” He asked walking to my direction.
I became really nervous , cause he was acting weird. Another guy jumped out of hiding and snatched my bag. He ran away and I chase at him.
” Hey..” I called out as I continue running.
My speed was extraordinary , I got hold of the guy who took my bag and pin him to the wall. I left a blow on his nose and he fell to the ground.
The first guy who talked to me earlier tried to defend his colleague , I held his arm and threw him away , unluckily he fell on a tower and landed on the floor with a broken arm and bleeding head.
” Oh my God.” I herd a voice.
I turned around and saw someone. He was so good looking and innocent.
” How did you do that ?” He asked and I ignored him.
” I’m sorry to bother you , I’m Christian.” He said stretching his hands out.
I looked down at his palm , I picked my bag and walked away.
” That was rude.” He shouted.
I didn’t bother to look back but continued walking. Giselle called.
” Hey Jordan.” She said on the phone.
” Hi , I was worried.” I said looking around.
I was standing on the road opposite a radio station.
” I’m sorry , work got me pissed off. Where are you ?”
” I don’t even know. I’m standing opposite a radio station not too far from the park. I just came out of an alley.” I said.
” Alright , stay there I’m coming.” She said and ended the call.
I sighed and looked for a seat around , I saw a bench and sat down.
” Good morning Mrs Smith, I’m sorry I’m late.” I said sitting down opposite her.
” Melissa you’re one of the best educated nurses we have here , it would be nice if you could be a little dedicated.”
” I’m sorry Mrs Smith. I’m really sorry.” I said.
” It’s fine. A patient’s in emergency , you need to see to that , he has a broken arm and his head is bruised.”
” Alright. Lemme check on him.” I said standing up.
God I hate my job , and the same time I love my job. The stress was too much. If you think you’re going through hell and your life’s a mess , you gotta pay a visit to a hospital. Thousands of lives who are begging to live.
It’s horrible to watch some die, most times I cried when I think about myself. Patients who would do anything to leave again. Then if you feel like committing suicide then you need to pay a visit to the mortuary first , that place is forsaken. Lives who wished they could breathe out loud even if it’s for the last time.
I walked into the ward and saw him. It was a boy and his arm was really bruised including his head.
” Issh. What’s your name ?” I asked him holding a file up.
” Sammy.” He replied in a rather tensed manner.
” What happened to you ?”
” A strange girl did this to me. I don’t know but I saw myself fly so high and hit a tower , the next thing I was on the floor with a broken arm.”
He was fuckin bleeding.
” Becky.” I called.
” I’m coming.” She replied running through.
” You need to clean this up immediately.” I said bringing out the syringe and a wiper.
Becky assisted in cleaning while i get a bandage for his arm. I went back to meet him but was surprised he was jerking , I tried to hold him still but he was too stubborn.
” Becky hold tight , get me the injection.” I yelled.
She rushed to get it but it was too late , he died.
” My God. That was sudden.” I said to myself.
” How can he die like that ?” Becky asked too.
” Wrap him off.” I said and walked out.
All saints was cape Town best hospital. It has acquired nurses and experience doctors . Mrs Smith was the doctor in charge. Her rules was most times annoying especially when we loose a patient. I sighed and took a deep breath as I sat down.
I watched Jordan eat as she ate in silence. I was really bothered about her illness. Before she came I talked to the parish priest about her but he said Jordan needs to be close to God .
” How was your journey ?” I asked.
” It was great.” She replied.
” I hope you like it here ?”
” Giselle I don’t have a choice. I don’t have a family , you’re the last.” She said.
” It’s okay. Everything will be fine.” I said touching her hair.
” I guess you’re through with high school ?” I asked.
” So you wanna go to college ?” I asked.
” No. I want to be a nurse. It’s my dream.”
” Wow. I have a friend who works as a nurse in all saints. I will talk to her maybe she will be your mentor and your training will commence soon.” I said and she smiled.
” Thanks.” She said and hugged me.
” It’s okay. I just hope you’ll enjoy your stay here.” I said to her and she smiled.
I helped her with the plates and took them to the kitchen. I walk her to her room and helped her with her door.
” You should pray before you sleep.”
” Thanks.” Jordan’s voice cooed.
” Goodnight.” She whispered.
” Goodnight.” I said and jammed her door.
” JORDAN *
Giselle works in a fast food restaurant as a sales rep. She was nice , I pray I don’t hurt her. I took a deep breath and pulled the blanket over my head. I thought about the boy I saw earlier. There was something about him , something that got me glued to him.
He was good looking with a perfect black man skin. He looks more like a mixed race. I smiled and wished all my nightmares could just go away in one night.
I took my phone and looked at the time it was past nine. The bracelet I wore sparkle. That bracelet was strange , mom gave it to me before she died , she used to wear it before all that possessed attitude surface.
I sighed and mutter to myself , I wished my parents were here. I tried to sleep but I saw something lying close to me. It was staring into my eyes and it was under my blanket. I switched on my phone and pointed at it , I screamed to the being I saw.
It was a man , a man with red horns and evil eyes. He was black all through without no body parts. I jumped off my bed and tried to run , I felt a strong hand pulled me back and threw me against the wall.
It was him I saw in my dreams , I’ve seen him in real life.

He raised me from the ground and lift me up wards.
” What are you ?” I cried in pain.
” I’m the Lord.” He replied.
His voice was thicked and evil. Just like the voice that speak through my mom the day she killed my father.
He blew his air that followed with his horrible saliva in my face. I wanted to shoke , he left me and I trembled on the ground. I hold my throat and looked around , he was gone.
An evil rotten odour filled my room. I watched my eyes closed as I heard footsteps.
* GISELLE WRITES *
I saw my sister lying on the floor. I quickly switched on the light , the room was filled with a very horrible odour. It smells like a rotten dead body.
” Jordan.” I called her name but didn’t get a reply.
” Oh my God. Jordan.” I called shaking her side to side.
It was too late to take her to a hospital. I quickly called the father but his number wasn’t going through.
I rushed to my room and picked up the holy water. I ran to where Jordan was and sprinkled a little on her. She gasped and open her eyes.
” Are you okay ?” I asked her.
She didn’t reply but looked around her room. She was afraid.
” You’ll be fine okay.” I said to her and hold her.
” I saw him.” She cried.
” Who ?” I whispered still embracing her.
” I don’t know.” She said.
” You sure ?” I asked.
She remained quiet for a while before she speak up.
” He’s the Lord.” She said in a man’s voice.
I released her at once and looked into her eyes. It was different. She forced her hands into my stomach as I groan in pain.
” Jordan please don’t do this.” I pleaded.
She grabbed my neck and raised me upwards. She bend her neck downwards like a chicken , she looked around my face as I struggled for breath . I heard a noise at the living room.
” Mom.” Jordan called and threw me on her bed.
” Mom is that you ?” She asked walking slowly to her door.
I watched her as she opened the door and walked out. I have never seen Jordan like this before , I only heard rumours and news from the priest. That was the way her mom behaved before she died.
I rushed downstairs to look for Jordan but I couldn’t find her , the living room door was flung open , I looked outside but I didn’t see Jordan. It was late and I was scared. I cried and sat down . I called the father again and he managed to pick.
” Hello father .” I sobbed.
” Giselle calm down , what happened to Jordan ?”
” I don’t know. What ever thing that happened to her mom is happening to her. She almost strangled me but released me when she heard a noise. She called out her mom’s name and walk out of her room.” I sob as I explained.
” Everything will be fine.” Father said.
” You need to pray. Jordan is possessed by the demon that killed her mom and dad. It will haunt her till she is useless.” The priest added.
” Why don’t you conduct a deliverance for her ?” I asked.
” I have , it left and returned in a very power state.”
” Oh my God. He will kill her. I can’t even find her, she’s no where to be found.” I cried more.
” Giselle calm down , Jordan will return home , calm down and pray.” The father said.
I angrily ended the call and looked outside.
” Jordan.” I called out and it echoed back. It was really late.
I cried and closed the door. I sat down and refused to go to bed.
” I saw a girl , about two days ago.” I said to Jones. He was my very good friend since high school.
Presently we attend the same college . I was at his house that day helping him out with his assignments , Jones a freak at maths. He’s so horrible at math.
” What girl ?” He asked.
” I don’t even know her name. She is weird and pretty , you know.” I said and smiled to nothing in particular.
” So what about Jade ?” He asked.
Jade was my girlfriend , we kinda broke up over some relationship issues . She flirt too much and I hate it , she even have to send her nudes to an Indian man on the net.
” Jade is a whore.” I said.
” I get it, she still likes you and she is willing to make amends.” Jones said.
” No Jade don’t make amends, she’s a crazy black bitch.” I said picking up my pen.
” So what does she looks like ? Your new lady ?” Jones ask and giggles
” She’s pretty and she seems new. Cause the first day i saw her she was with her luggage , she just entered the states.” I said.
” Oh , I get it.” Jones said and chuckled.
” You need to concentrate on my assignment, I really need an A on that course.” He said leaning close to me.
” I think you should learn it. Most times I think my maths assistance is behind the bond of our friendship.” I said and winked.
” Seriously , I will pretend like i didn’t hear that.” He said and stormed out of his room carrying a box.
I exhale loudly and thought about her , she was really pretty.
* JORDAN *
I opened my eyes and yawned. I sat up and was baffled to were I was . I was supposed to be in my bedroom but I was surprised to find myself in a garbage. I jumped up in surprised, I looked around and I saw kids laughing at me.
I got really irritated. I twisted my neck in a slow motion looking at this kids , they looked at me and became hypnotized. I watched them walk into a moving van as they were crushed to death.
I smiled and looked around , I was smelling really bad. I find my way home and knocked. Giselle opened up , she was smiling endlessly and I hated it.
” Jordan.” She called out and hugged me .
She jammed the door behind me and smiled into my eyes.
” Are you okay ?” I asked.
” Yeah. Where were you at ?” She asked.
” I don’t know. I found myself In the garbage.” I replied walking out her.
” Jordan.” She called out.
” I wanna be alone.” I said and ran to my room.
I remember last night , the picture was clear. The demon in my room , how I almost strangled Giselle and the kids I killed that morning. I sobbed and lamented. He was using me , I felt like committing suicide to at least put a stop to all this mess.
” Jordan.” I heard Giselle’s voice outside my room.
I quickly wiped my tears and hurried to open the door.
” May I ?” She asked and I nodded leading the way.
” I’ve talked to Melissa. She is the nurse I told you about. She will be your mentor. I took the necessary files needed , and all you need to do is bathe yourself and I’ll take you to her. Training starts tomorrow.” Giselle said smiling.
” Why are you acting like that ? I guess I almost strangled you to death ?” I asked and sobbed silently.
” It’s okay, you’ll be fine. You can keep this.” Giselle said placing a cross on my hand.
” A cross ?”
” Yes. It’s yours now. It will help you in times of worries and sorrow. Just believe.” Giselle said and cover my hands against the cross.
I smiled and hugged her. The hugged didn’t last , it seems she was still scared about last night.
” I’m sorry.” I whispered.
She smiled and nodded.
” It’s okay. Go and bathe lemme take you to Lissa , she will be happy to see you. And I’m.. late for work too you gotta hurry.” Giselle said standing up.
She tucked my hair and left . I sighed and looked at the cross , I thought about my dream profession.
Sooner or later I’ll be referred to as a Nurse …

* JORDAN *
We visited all saints that day. Giselle was really nice despite the fact that she don’t know me too well. I always pray within myself I don’t hurt her.
We saw a girl who looks like a head nurse.
” Giselle..” She greeted Giselle.
” Melissa..” Giselle called and hugged her.
” This is my sister Jordan , Jordan meet Melissa my ex high school mate.” Giselle introduce.
” Hi.” I waved.
” She’s pretty.” Melisa whispered.
I chuckled and looked around.
” She’s a newbie and she’s the one I told you about the other day. You really need to be nice to her.” Giselle said and she nodded.
” Sure. ” Melissa said softly.
” I should take my leave , I’m running late for work.” Giselle said and hugged me.
” Melissa is like me , we’ve been best friends for too long, she is gonna teach you what you need to know.” Giselle said.
I nodded like a child and watched Giselle exchange glances with Melissa and left.
” Come with me.” Melissa said leading a match and I followed.
” First thing you need to learn is how to handle every patients , this is a hospital it’s like a society with different attitudes. Here you’ll meet the arrogant, the rude and also the ones who’s gonna make you hate your job. I’ll introduce you to doctor Smith , she’s in charge here.” Melissa said knocking an office door.
” In please..” a voice ordered from inside.
We walked in and Melissa greeted her , I didn’t hesitate to greet too.
” She’s the new nurse ma.” Melissa begin.
” Hi , you’re Jordan right ? Giselle’s sister ?” She asked.
” Yes ma’am.” I replied.
” It’s nice to meet you, you should be serious too in order to learn fast.” Mrs Smith said writing endlessly on a file.
” You can take over Melissa.”
” Thanks ma.” Melissa prostrated and left with me.
” I forgot to tell you , you’ll have to learn to meet up with Mrs Smith. She’s strict and most times rude.” Melissa said and I chuckled.
We entered a ward and I saw blood , I screamed and ran to a corner. I thought I saw him , the man that leaves inside of me. Melissa was baffled she rushed after me and tried to console me.
” Are you okay ?” She asked walking me out.
I felt a strange heat and smoke run out of my body.
” Yes.” I said without looking at her.
” You’re sure ? You just freaked out. ” She asked again and I ignored her.
” You’ll learn to tolerate bloody patients , I know it’s a bit irritating but you’ll learn.” She advised .
” Thanks i will take my leave now , I’ll resume tomorrow.” I said and walked out.
” Jordan.” Melissa called out but I ignored her.
I wished I cope , I felt like eating up those patients , I became blood thirsty. I walk aimlessly on the road and groan to nothing in particular.
* CHRISTIAN *
I kept on thinking about her , she was all I wanted to see. I remembered her eyes , my nameless dream girl. She was just too pretty to be weird. I smiled to nothing in particular and scuffs cause I can’t find her. I don’t even know where she leaves.
Jones walk in , he was fund of distracting romantic moments .
” You know you’re finally going insane..” he said mockingly and sat down.
” I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
” I saw Jade.” He said and scoff loudly.
” You can’t get out of her head. She loves you a lot , she even had to cry.” Jones said and I growled.
” I don’t love her anymore , she’s a bitch, I told you she sent her nudes to some Indian man on the net. Who does that ? Except a worthless girl.”
” Christian ..” Jones called and I stopped him.
” We should stop talking about her , you can have her if you want.” I said picking the TV remote control.
” Well I don’t need her , I have a girlfriend and I’m not cheap.” He said and I ignored him.
Talk of the devil and she shows up. Jade was pretty , she’s this proud college girl who likes acting like a model , she’s bossy and truly attractive.
” Hey babe.” She said wanting to hug me when I pushed her aside.
” What are you doing here ?”
” To see my baby.” She said wanting to sit on my laps and I angrily pulled away.
” Jade it’s over , I’m done with you why can’t you get it. You’re a stripper, continue stripping you might possibly buy a rolls Royce too.” I said and walked out of the house.
I was tired of her pecky attitude , she was just too annoying. I strolled down the city and hum to the music on my ear bud when I saw her. Her hair sparkle as the sun shine brightly on her skin.
She was walking down an alley and I followed her. She stopped and turned to look at me.
” Why are you following you ?” She asked.
” I’m not following you , I just wanted to talk.”
” Talk about what ?” She asked really angry.
” You’re acting super weird.” I said to her.
” If you’re wise you’ll stay away from me.” She said In a manly ghostly voice.
” What ?” I asked surprised.
She turned to leave when I held her arm , she smacked my wrist brutally and I find my wrist bleeding.
” Woah ! How did you do that ?”
She breathe heavily and looked down at my wrist , I was really holding it tight.
” Stay away from me if you want to live ” she said but this time it was her pretty voice that spoke.
” I can’t stay away from you.” I said
” What do you want ?” She asked calmly.
” You.” I said.
” What ?”
” I mean , I just wanna know you. I mean no arm I just wanna be a friend.”
She looked at me weirdly and silently walk to where I was. She brought out a handkerchief and tied it around my wrist.
” Sorry about that .” She whispered looking into my eyes.
Something in me wanted to kiss her but I was stopped, I raised my head and she was a bit far from me already.
” Hey thanks , can I get to know your name ?” I shouted.
She turned and smiled and walked away.
” Weird.” I said and looked down at my wrist that is no longer bleeding.
” How did she do that ?” I asked myself.
She was extremely strange , I removed the handkerchief and looked at the wounds it was not there. I sighed and left for my home.
* JORDAN *
I went home that day and I was all alone , I closed the living room door and head to my room. Why do I find myself thinking about him ?
He was just too innocent to share my problems with me , I needed help a mighty help. I was scared to keep him in my memory but I can’t. I find myself thinking about him , thinking about the incident that occurred few minutes ago. He was just too cute.
I giggles and smiled at my mirror. I combed my hair and smiled to his face in my memory. My reflection transformed to his , the evil that controls me. I saw his evil eyes staring back at me as my reflection , his horns were red and his hands with sharp claws.
” Leave me alone.” I said and frowned.
” You’re in love with him right ?” He asked with his fierce looks.
” Just leave me alone.” I cried.
” Answer me.” His voice thundered as he ordered.
I kept quiet and sighed.
I felt a magnetic force pulled me backwards and pressed me to the wall.
” I hate love.” He shouted.
He was strangling me and I tried to shout.
” You don’t deserve love , you’re a condemned soul.” He said pulling me to the ground.
I struggled for breath and tried to breath.
” Your soul is mine , you’re worthless and will remain useless. As long as I’m in you you’ll be forever useless , mother Earth shall reject your soul and your soul shall wander on the surface of this Earth till eternity. You’ll watch the people you love die one after the other because I’m the Lord.” He said and left with a wind that followed by the rotten odour.
I remained on the floor and blacked out.
