We continue our journey till we get to her kingdom of course we saw dead people like zombie, we just walk pass them without fear and they didnt even bother to disturb us, we get to kingdom and stop at their big gate like the gate of Rome or rather this one is bigger,.
We gather together as we say our final goodbye, she told Lizzy and Annabel to take good care of me, well i try to talk sense into her so that she will come with us but she refuse saying that she will visit me when shes through with what shes doing, i wonder what shes doing oh and how shes going to do it when her stepmum the queen is looking for her, oh well the kingdom is damn big so i guess she will find her way, she gave Lizzy the coins, she also draw her trouser up and i saw that she has many red beads on her left leg, she remove one of the red bead and gave it to me telling me to always carry it will me, well i accepted it and tie it around my leg, we bade final goodbye as she start climbing the gate to her kingdom like ninja, i wonder how a small girl like her have so much knowledge about the living and the dead, well i guess she might even be older than me because shes really mysterious, as she climb the wall i kept starring at her till Lizzy snap me out of it.
Lizzy: Oz (shes shouted my name).
I turn and look her and she use her hand to demonstrate that we should be going.
Ann: it seems like you like her dont you?
Lizzy: that like better end here because you will never see her again.
Me: dont say so, you cant predict the future.
Lizzy: as a matter of fact i can, lets start going joor.
We continue our journey to the riverfall, the place where we will enter canoe back to the land of the living, we pass many mysterious beast starring at us but they didnt attack, i wonder what type of power i possess that make them to be afraid, i think i will have to explore it when i get home, we gist to the port and saw that the place is smoking, even cloud cover the river middlebelt, Lizzy took the horn and blow it loud, we wait for twenty minutes we didnt see anybody so Lizzy took the horn again and as she wanted to blow it, we saw a small canoe coming the canoe head look like dragon and the person inside the canoe look like ghost because na only black cloak wey the person wear we they see we nor see e body, the person or rather thing came and strenght its hand, Lizzy quickly took the coins and gave it to the rider without instructing us we jump inside the canoe and sat down as the rider paddle away gently down the sea, we reach a place where two mighty rocks meet we pass under and the person stop there, he point us to come down point to one big gate we walk to the gate and it open, as we pass to the land of the living there we saw hundreds of army waiting for us in the land of the living led by my dangerous mother herself, we were so lost that we wanted to turn back but no the gate is already lock.
