The Incarnate Chapter Ten (Reincarnation)
His stature was more of the Biblical Goliath, with a hood and a mask covering his face, He started shooting sporadically at Kelly who was seated in the front passenger seat, after some spree of bullets; he sped off in his car.
Sena screamed when she saw Kelly, bullets were buried in his chest and abdomen, even though they ducked, but the bullets still located him, Sena pulled him out of the car, He laid face up and gasping for breath
Sena: Oh no Kelly, you can’t leave me now, stay with me
Kelly: Tttaake good ccaarre of yourself
Sena: Kelly, wait, you are going nowhere, and I wanted to tell you am pregnant
Sena quickly called an ambulance, she wailed and soiled herself with Kelly’s blood, the ambulance soon came, and the body of Kelly was conveyed to the hospital.
Sena didn’t know who to call, Biitka was the last of Kelly’s family she knew was alive, but when she tried calling him, his line was switched off, so she called Dorcas.
Kelly was dead, but his spirit couldn’t make it to the other side, He was with Sena at the hospital trying to catch her attention, but it was just impossible, He went to sit outside pretending to normal, but nobody was actually seeing him.
Then someone tapped him on the shoulder.
Spirit: You look lost, aren’t you?
Kelly: Can you see me?
Spirit: Of course I can, am a ghost like you
Kelly: Really? Since when?
Spirit: Just three hours ago
Kelly: What happened to you?
Spirit: I have a bad spiritual background, a family curse that has haunted my family for decades, am a Nigerian, I thought coming to Ghana will save me, but it didn’t
Spirit: It’s because you are a spirit now, you get to see what and who killed you and all that, I was passing by when I saw him shoot you, I know you are worried about your fiancé I guess, and I heard her mention pregnancy
Kelly: Yeah she did, I wish I can warn her about my Uncle
Spirit: You mean you want to go back?
Kelly: If I could, why not?
Spirit: Mhmmm, You can be reincarnated, but not resurrected, you know, I died in my room, and nobody has discovered by body yet, you can possess it if you wish
Kelly: You think that is possible?
Spirit: Yeah, so far as my body wasn’t ready to die, your spirit is still strong, and has nothing to do with the family curse, you can possess my body and be reincarnated
Kelly: Okay, let’s try it out
Dorcas soon arrived at the hospital, she couldn’t control her tears, Sena has exhausted the last of her tears, she sat dumbfounded, and she wished time travelled backwards. She felt she is the reason for all this happening, if she had told Kelly early on, nothing would have happened, Dorcas consoled herself and tried encouraging Sena.
Sena: It’s my fault, it’s my entire fault
Dorcas: Don’t say that, how is that your fault
Sena: Am pregnant
Dorcas: Whhaat? Since when? Did you let him know?
Sena: I wanted him to get me ice cream before I tell him, we went to get it, and that was when the assailant attacked and shot him
Dorcas: Did you tell him?
Sena: Am not sure he heard that before passing on, but I remember telling him
Dorcas: But why did he shoot only Kelly, you were two in the car
Sena: Look, We look get that later, they deposited his body at the morgue already, let’s go home
Kelly’s death was a blow to Sena, she was left alone, and pregnant too, she has a strong feeling about these whole incidents, her whole body is protesting against her mind.
“I don’t need to be a psychic to know those behind this shooting, it has something to do with Biitka, the company board members, they have always hated him”…She told Dorcas tearfully
Dorcas: Have you reported the incident to the police?
Sena: Yeah, they did an examination on the body and swore to find the culprits
Dorcas: I just pray they do so
Sena: Am leaving the house immediately Kelly is laid to rest, I can’t continue leaving there
Dorcas: No you can’t, look, you are pregnant for Kelly, that mean you have to continue the linage, you leaving might create some kind of troubles for your unborn child, stay there…We will talk about that later
Sena: Hmmmm, Okay
Sena knew in some way or the other, Dorcas was right, she has to stay in the house, so far as she is harboring the child of Kelly, but it will depend on Biitka, whether they stay or leave,
Kelly and his new spirit world friend were soon looking at this fair, hairy and handsome looking body sleeping lifelessly in the couch, He didn’t look dead in anyway..
Spirit: That’s me, Fletcher
Kelly: Your name? Fletcher?
Spirit: Yeah, that is my name
Kelly: And how do you expect me to possess this body?
Spirit: I did rituals as a course in school, I know a lot about this spiritual stuffs, just do as I tell you okay?
Kelly: how long would I leave in this body? And can’t we wait for some time?
Spirit: Mostly until the last of your task is completed, you can choose to stay or go to the other side; your spirit is still here because you have a business to deal with…The more you wait, the more the body goes through decomposition. So it must be done immediately, it wouldn’t take long, just few minutes
Kelly: But why are you still here,
Spirit: You see that door hanging over there? That is my door, I just wanted to stay for some time before I go behind that door, if I delay, I will be forced into it
Kelly: But why can’t I go, I see no door
Spirit: Yes, because you have to help somebody somewhere, maybe that’s why I was led to you.
Kelly: Hmmmm, so when do you wish to leave
Spirit: Immediately you wake up in that body
Kelly: When do we start?
Fletcher, as the spirit was called in real life knew a lot about the spiritual world because of his knowledge in Ritualism and Voodoo, He drew some marks on the floor and did some incantations, He asked Kelly to sit in the body as he purify him, He sort permission from the spirit worlds, and immediately He did that, the door opened, He smiled as He bid Kelly farewell and walked into it, the door shut by itself and varnished into wherever.
