“Nobody sent me Sir! I came on my own”

His statement amused him that he burst out laughing.
“This is unbelievable! I have seen something in this country,so this is the strategy they now use to trap people by sending kid out to talk to anybody they seen on the road so if I start talking to you now I will forget myself and follow you”

“They plans has failed,kid go back back to whoever that sent you and tell him that he can’t see me, wonders shall never cease to end,they even gave you my name nawa ooo for this our country”

It has been two weeks since Jackson started trying his best to talk to Charles but he has never given the opportunity to talk to him he still have this mindset that Jackson is not ordinary.

This time around Jackson saw him going to the gym on his way going to school,
“Sir Charles must talk to me this time,I won’t go to school again I will sit down here and wait for him to come out from that gym”
He sounded brought down his backpack and sat at the block waiting patiently for him like a dog.

Two hours later, Jackson saw him coming out he stood up and rushed to him,
“Good Morning Sir!

“You again! even at this gym! are you a monitoring spirit or what?
He shouted in shocked he was not expecting to see him at that gym,he changed his usual gym because of him.

Jackson laughed devilishly and started behaving like a demon,
“Charles I know is because of me that’s why you changed your gym but I got my eyes on you that’s why it was not difficult for me to locate you,if you like travel out from this city to a far place I will still got my eyes on you as a monitoring spirit am I”

Charles became so scared of this statement,
“I knew it this kid is not ordinary! Who sent you to get me? If it’s money I don’t have anything”

He laughed and said,
“As I have been saying for the past two weeks nobody sent me I came on my own”

“Then what did you want for me? If it’s my life please my life is too precious to me you can get someone”s else blood please leave mine”
He pleaded in fear.

Jackson laughed devilishly and said to him,

“I want to talk to you that’s the only thing I want”
He sounded still taking like a demon.

“Talk to me about what? Darkness and light have nothing in common so I don’t have anything to do with darkness so get you behind you devil”
He shouted trying to be bold.

Jackson laughed devilishly and shouted at him rolling his eyes like a witch,
“Am the son of the seven python the heir to the demon’s land if you don’t want me to use your body for breakfast calm down and listen to the instruction I will give you”

Charles became so calmed and stand still in fear,sweating like someone that came out from the bathroom without cleaning his body, praying inside his heart for his life not to been taken by the demon.

Jackson laughed so devilishly and shouted,
“Tomorrow being Saturday I want you to be at Grace Land Restaurant by 5pm I get yourself a sit and wait for our Queen mother if you fail to do so consider yourself a dead human being”

“Why should I meet the Queen mother? What for?
He stammered in fear.

“Don’t ask any questions and follow the instructions I gave you If failed to do so…..
He laughed devilishly and continued

“Consider yourself dead,am I understood?
He shouted.

Charles nodded his head in fear,
“Yes! Yes! I will do as you said”

“Oya turn your back and run,don’t look back if you look back what you see you will take”
He shouted.

Charles obeyed and ran out immediately without turning back, Jackson laughed and laughed so uncontrollable.

“Oh my God! What a great performance! I deserve an accolade and applause”
He clapped and laughed for an acting well done.

“I can act oooo! I need to sign into Nollywood”
He laughed out.

“Why didn’t I came up with this acting since by now Aunty Catherina would have met Charles?
He asked.

“If he failed to come I will use this tricks on him again but I will appear to him in a dangerous way,I will disguised as a real devil”
He laughed out and made his way out.
