Hell’s Nest – Episode 1
A story by Goddy Francis
Ten years ago.
” Mom I wanna be a nurse.”
” Oh my darling Jordan , you’ll be a nurse okay.” Mom said.
My life’s is a definition of wedlock. My mom has been going through a series of trauma. She’s been battling with different issues, it turned out she’s possessed.
Just one night , I saw my mom , that wasn’t my mom. She was different including her voice. Something was speaking through her.
” I’m the Lord , your soul Is mine.” She said walking towards my father.
” Daddy.” I cried out.
” Jordan run.” Dad said.
I couldn’t withhold the incidence. I cried and watched my mom stab my father continually. She turned to look at me , I saw her eyes. There was something inside of her. She cried my name and killed herself.
” Mom don’t live me too.” I cried.
Tears don’t bring back the dead , if it does I’m willing to a cry a river. My mom was buried close to my dad after few days in the church cemetery. My aunt who lives in Johannesburg visited and took me with her.
The priest suggested I should be close to God. I tried but the worse happened. Most times I see things , things human eyes are not supposed to see , things human eyes can not see and things human eyes will never see.
I became severely ill to the extent I couldn’t talk. The only words that can barely come out of my mouth were.
” Mom I want to be a nurse.”
I always say that to no one in particular.
One evening I was sleeping in my room. My door slammed open slowly, I opened my eyes and switch my bedside lamp on.
” Mom.” I called out.
” Mom.” I called again standing up and walking to my door direction.
I walked out of my room and looked outside there was no one.
” Mom is that you ?” I asked running down the stairs.
” Jordan.” I heard my name.
A strong wind blew and it opened the living room door.
” Jordan.” The voice Called again.
I became hypnotized as I walked through the door . I felt my eyes color change. I picked a knife and went back to the house. I went straight to my aunt’s room , she was lying on her bed fast asleep
” No.” I cried and ran outside. I saw a car light coming to my direction. I ran towards it and I got hit my the car.
” Jordan.” A voice whispered in my ears.
I opened my eyes to see our parish priest. He was a nice man who has been helping me out since mother died.
I cried and weeped.
” It’s okay my child.” He cooed.
” I killed her.” I cried.
” You didn’t. God has forgiven all your sins my child. You’ll be fine.” He said.
I smiled and nodded like a child. I stayed with him for years and he look after me. But that didn’t stop the tormenting, it became worse. I was seeing things. Most times I hear whispers and laughing and at times I see images of my mom.
The father said I was suffering from a disease that surfaced when I was little. He said it was because I watched my parents die in cold blood. I wasn’t a kid, I know i wasn’t sick neither I’m I willing to accept I’m possessed.
The worst happened when I turned twenty. I was in my room that day when I heard my door open.
” Jordan.” Her voice Called in a ghostly whisper.
” Mom.” I called out.
” Jordan.” It called out again but it came out like a wind.
” Dad.” I called standing up.
I heard my mom’s laughter as it went through the stairs. I run after this Strange voice but I couldn’t see anything.
I was alone that day , the priest wasn’t around including the maid that always look after me.
” Mom , I know you’re here. Please I want to see your face. Why are you tormenting me ? Why are you making me look like a psycho ?” I asked and weeped slowly.
I heard her laughter behind me.
” Mom.” I called and turned around.
A strong wind hit me and I blacked out. I opened my eyes afterwards and I was surprised to see myself in a psychiatrist hospital. I was chained to my bed with several psychiatrist were around me.
I couldn’t speak a word. I was weak and different. I only find myself mutter to one in particular. Most times I talk to myself and laugh. Someone was talking to me but no one could see it or hear it. It was the voice of a man.
I remained in there for weeks without saying a word to anyone. The priest was always visiting telling me it was okay. One day something happened. Something weird and Strange , I felt a strong force grew loud in my eyes , my temper was high.
” Get me out of here.” I said in a voice that’s unlikely mine.
” Calm down” a nurse said.
” Please call the parish priest.” The nurse said to the other nurse who rushed out.
I screamed like a beast and cut the chains. The doctors were amazed by the strength and it cause a bizarre. I screamed and tied the chain to a nurse and strangled him.
The nurses became scared and they went wild with everyone running for their dear lives. I picked a scissors and stabbed the doctor in charge in his eyes. Blood was all over. I didn’t hesitate to stop.
I ran after a nurse and pounce on her , I stabbed her on her heart continually till she was gone. I knew that wasn’t me , something was doing the killing.
I screamed and touched my head, it was my panting. My heart was failing. I saw the priest running to my direction , it seems he was shocked and disappointed. He ran after me and hugged.
I don’t know how it happened but I stabbed my parish priest on his neck as he bleed profusely and cried for mercy.
