TALE OF THE BLIND SEER EPISODE 2
“Your daughter came to my house three days ago and said that my son will die today at exactly this time and now my son is dead.” Mr Thomas said and the people that went with them shouted.
“Does it mean is my daughter that killed him?” Mr Desmond asked.
“I wonder oh.” Mrs Desmond added.
“Yes your daughter killed him, she is a witch pretending to be blind.” Mr Thomas said.
“Ask your daughter to come and wake my else I will not leave here.” Mrs Thomas said sitting on the ground.
“I didn’t kill your son, I told you people but you took it for granted….if you had listen to me Tony wouldn’t has died, obedience is better than sacrifice.” Anna said as she came out of the house.
“You this blind witch, I will deal with you.” Mr Thomas said.
“I speak not of myself but of Him who sent me.” Anna said.
“Exactly, that day self she saw Tony and was trying to tell him but he didn’t listen to her instead he started abusing her.” Chidi who came in when he heard voices said defending Anna.
“Mr Thomas, I am sorry for the death of your son please take heart.” Mr Desmond said.
“You! We shall see.” Mr Thomas said pointing at Anna before they left.
That evening, Mr Desmond returned back from work and they were eating at the dinning table when he remembered what happened earlier that day.
“Anna, I hope you are happy with the embracement that we faced this morning because of you?” He asked.
“Father, I have done nothing wrong.” Anna said defending herself.
“You have done nothing wrong? Do you know what it means to tell someone that his son will die and he truly died at the exact time you said? Do you know what it means?” Her father asked half yelled.
“Tony died because they refused to do what they were told to do.” Anna said.
“Anna, do you know how people will be seeing you now? And you have ruined my reputation.” Mr Desmond said.
“Father, allow people to see me anyhow they want, they are not the one that owns my life and talking about your reputation, it not ruined okay? So worryless”. She said.
Her dad breathe down and continue with his food as her mother was feeding her.
The next morning, Anna woke up very early, she did her morning devotion before heading out…she got to their gate and their gateman refused to let her go, after begging him for some minutes he opened the gate for her.
She went to a house that was in the third Street where a woman named mama Orobo lived with her two children, one is disable and the other one who happens to be a girl is a public ashawo.
Anna stood opposite their door waiting patiently for mama Orobo to come out…. Few minutes later, she came out with a bako bag in her hand, she was obviously going to the market.
“Mama Orobo good morning.” Anna greeted.
(Mama Orobo was shocked when she heard her name, she looked everywhere to know if she came alone or someone bought her, when she didn’t see anybody..she wondered how Anna was able to locate her house in her blind states)
“Don’t worry, I came alone.” Anna said to her surprised, Anna was actually backing her but she knew it was Anna.
“What are you doing here and what do you want?” She asked feeling a bit scared.
“Why did you killed Tony?” Anna asked.
(“How did she know I killed Tony?”) She thought.
“Because God knows you.” Anna said and feared gripped her.
“Now answer my question, why did you kill Tony?” Anna asked again.
“I don’t know what you are talking about.” She said.
“Your days are numbered, if you don’t stop killing innocent souls you will face shame and disgrace..be warn!” Anna said and start walking away.
“I don’t know what you are talking about.” She said.
“Be warn!!” Anna said and left.
Mama Orobo ran inside her house as soon as Anna left, she went to her room, opened her wardrobe, bought out a small Calabash pot that was tied with red piece of cloth and some white chalks and other things inside.. she make some incantation and queen Morgan appeared in her room.
“Queen mother I greet you.” She said and bow her head a little.
“Anna just left here right?” Queen Morgan asked.
“Yes queen mother.” She replied.
“Don’t worry I will handle her.” Queen Morgan said.
“But queen mother, I am scared that she might tell people that I killed Tony.” Mama Orobo said.
“She won’t do such thing.” Queen Morgan said.
“Okay, but how did she locate my house and how did she found out that I killed Tony?” Mama Orobo asked.
(Laughing) “She has some magical powers but trust me I am going to deal with her.” Queen Morgan said.
“I thought you blinded her?” Mama Orobo asked.
“Yes I did but don’t worry her days are numbered already.” Queen Morgan said and disappeared.
Mama Orobo quickly kept the Calabash pot back in her wardrobe before leaving the house.
Meanwhile, Anna was on her way home when queen Morgan appeared to her.
“You this little rat how dare you threaten my servant?” Queen Morgan said angrily.
“She doesn’t belong to you, she is the likeness of God so stay away from her before you face your Doom.” Anna said.
“Little girl do not cross your boundary.” She said.
“Stop using her to kill innocent people just to satisfy yourselfish self before my God will consume you with his fire.” Anna said.
“Your God cannot challenge me.” Queen Morgan said.
“My God does not challenge, He destroy the wicked ones out of the surface of this earth, go back to wherever you came from for you do not belong here.” Anna said as she walked pass her.
“I will deal with you little rat.” Queen Morgan yelled in anger and disappeared.
On the other hand, Mr Desmond came out of his room holding his briefcase and was set for work, he walked to the dinning to has his breakfast.
“Honey, did you see our daughter?” Mrs Desmond asked as soon as he settles down.
“I was about asking you that, are you not her mother?” Mr Desmond asked.
I haven’t see her this morning, I went to her room but she is not there.” Mrs Desmond said.
“So what are you saying that my daughter didn’t sleep this house or what?” Mr Desmond asked.
“Ah honey, she slept here”. Mrs Desmond said.
“Then where is she now?” Mr Desmond asked.
“Sanusi! Sanusi!” Mrs Desmond called and sanusi ran to them after some seconds.
“Madam/Oga, good morning.” He greeted bowing his head.
“Sanusi, did you see Anna this morning?” Mrs Desmond asked.
“Ah yes oh madam, she comot this early morning.” Sanusi said.
“What? And you opened the gate for her?” Mrs Desmond asked.
“Erm…..yes madam because she come dey beg me and me I nor like wen she dey beg so I come open the gate for her and……”
“Shut up your mouth! I thought I told you not to open that gate for her to go out?” Mr Desmond asked.
“Yes Oga but she beg me.” Sanusi said.
“Will you shut your mouth!” Mrs Desmond said before sanusi could say another word, slap landed on his cheek, Mr Desmond has just slapped him.
“Now go out there and look for my daughter and make sure you don’t return here without her else I will cut off your head rubbish.” Mr Desmond said in commanding tune.
Sanusi was about going out when Anna came in.
“No need I am here but father, you don’t have to slap him.” Anna said as she walked fully into the living room with the help of sanusi.
“And where are you coming from?” Mr Desmond asked but Anna didn’t say anything.
“I said where are you coming from and I thought I warned you not to leave this house again?” Mr Desmond asked in half yelled.
“I went to deliver a message.” Anna said.
“A message again??” Her both parents asked the same time and she nod in respond.
“Hey this girl won’t kill me oh.” Mrs Desmond lamented.
“Mother, calm down, it not a bad message.” Anna said.
“Sanusi, you can now go.” Mr Desmond said and turned to Anna.
“Lemme help you to sit down so that you can tellus what’s the message all about and who you went to delivered it to.” Mr Desmond said taking Anna to the couch.
After settling down Anna began.
“I went to mama Orobo’s house.” Anna said .
“Mama Orobo? Who is this mama Orobo and where does she stays?” Mr Desmond asked.
“She stays in the third Street.” She said.
“And what was the message you went to deliver to her?” Her dad asked.
“She killed Tony.” Anna said.
What? How did you know?” Her mum asked surprisely.
(Her father was just confused at that moment, he losted his voice instantly, he couldn’t say a word)
“God knows everything even before it was planned.” She said.
“So what exactly made you to go to her house?” Her dad asked.
“I went to asked her why she killed Tony and also warned her because her days are numbered.” She said.
“Her days are numbered? Does it mean she is a witch?” Her dad asked.
“You will found out when the time comes, I need to go to my room.” She said standing up.
“Won’t you have your breakfast?” Her mum asked.
“No am not hungry.” She said walking to her room.
(Her parents just kept starring at her till she she walked out of sight)
“Honey, our daughter is behaving really strange oh.” Mr Desmond said turning to his wife.
“So you just realized that?” Mrs Desmond asked.
“Don’t you think she is too young to know and say weird things like this?” Mr Desmond asked.
“Hmm, I don’t just know, I pray she don’t put us into trouble.” Mrs Desmond said.
“I pray so too, I need to be going now, am almost late for work.” Mr Desmond said standing and carried his briefcase.
“Alright sweetheart, take care fo yourself and make sure you call me when you get to the office.” Mrs Desmond said.
“I will and take care of yourself and my daughter.” Mr Desmond said.
“I will honey.” Mrs Desmond said while Mr Desmond left.
Two weeks later, Anna was walking along the street when she saw her dad going to sit down under a tree and she sighted the tree falling, before she could stop her father from sitting there, he already sat under the tree and it fell on top of him and he died instantly. She ran to her already dead dad and screamed (father!”) Immediately she woke up only to realize that it was a dream. She knee down on top of her bed and prayed over it, while praying the spirit of God told her to tell her father not to go to work that day else he will return as a dead body.
In the morning at 7:30am, Anna went to the living room, she met her dad already dresses for work as usual.
“Dad/mum, good morning.” She greeted.
“My angel, how was your night?” Her dad asked.
“Baby, how are you doing?” Her mum asked.
“Am not fine.” She said moody.
“Ah, my love why?” Her mum asked.
“Dad, please you don’t have to go to work today.” She said.
“Why?” Her dad asked.
“I had a terrible dream concerning you, if you leave this house today, you might not come back alive.” She said.
“God forbid! Anna why will you say such thing to your dad?” Her mum asked.
“Mother, it’s what I see I talk, tell dad not to go out today.” Anna said.
“Listen to me, if not the fact that you are my daughter, i would have sat someone sent you to me this morning… stop saying what you don’t know.” Mr Desmond said angrily standing up from the chair.
“Mum, please beg dad, don’t allow him to go out please.” Anna said crying.
“Honey, please I suggest you heed to our daughter’s voice, why not stay at home today.. tomorrow is another day, you can still go to work tomorrow please.” Mrs Desmond said.
“Don’t tell me you believe what she said? Anyway, I don’t have your time, see you two in the evening.” Mr Desmond said and dash out of the house.
“Whatever happens to you your blood will be on your head.” Anna said.
“15minutes later, Mrs Desmond phone rang, she took the phone and starred at the screen..
(“My love”) was boldly written on it which indicates that it was her husband, she picked amthe called and heard another voice.
“Hello darling.” She said.
“Madam, your husband was involved in a gasly motor accident.” The caller said.
“What? When, where?” She asked confusedly.
“I will send you the hospital address where he is been admitted.” The caller said and end the call.
“What’s wrong mum?” Anna asked.
“Your dad was involved in an accident?” Her mum said crying.
“Jesus Christ!” She said
“Lemme get you ready, we are going to the hospital.” Her mum said.
About 30 minutes later, Mrs Desmond and Anna were in the hospital, they were taken to Mr Desmond ward where he was lay on the bed and cover with cloth from his head to toe.
Mrs Desmond uncovered him and screamed.
“No! My husband can’t die.” Mrs Desmond said crying.
(Anna was crying too and it pained her that she wasn’t able to see her dad before he died due to her inability to see)
“Madam, am so sorry, please take heart.” The young doctor said..
They left the hospital and went home, (in less than an hour, news has carried everything, everybody in the whole town and beyond then know that Mr Desmond was dead and they kept pointing finger on Anna even though they haven’t know that Anna already told her dad about his death. Most people believe that Anna is a witch because of what happ ened to Tony).
