( Unimaginable_Seed )
The seed produced fire when Hannah handled it but she never cared. The rope in which Jennifer hung the seed on her neck cut then she screamed and fell down the cliff. Hannah hurried out of the den with the seed whose fire suddenly quenched.
On the other hand, Randy went straight to Karina’s apartment still with the can-food in his hand. Karina opened the door after he knocked then both stared at each other for a while coz the visit was uncharacteristical. Randy noticed Karina’s mood to be dull then he said, “Are you okay?”
“I’m fine. Come in” Karina allowed him in and gave him a seat. She wore a short jean skirt and a black top. She sat down differently using a pillow to cover her thighs.
“I wasn’t expecting you”
“Sorry i came uninvited”
Both remained quiet while Randy looked at the house then directed his eyes to the can-food in his hand.
“I’m just coming back from Milky Crab’s but didn’t see you there. Why?”
“Nothing, i was very down earlier this morning”
“And why again?”
Karina didn’t reply but averted her eyes from Randy who also couldn’t wait to hear her reply. They could hear distance vehicles and chattering.
“Let me get you at least water to drink” Karina stood up then walked to the refrigerator. When she opened it, a light shone from it. After taking a glass cup and a bottle of water, she closed it. Immediately she turned, she saw Randy standing behind her then shocked and both stared into
each other’s eyes again.
“You are not okay, talk to me” Randy broke the silence. “Does it have to do with Jack?” he asked.
Karina averted her eyes from him again and passed him without saying anything. She poured some water into the cup which rested on the centre table and handed it to Randy who had also drew closer.
“I don’t want to talk about it” Karina took her seat.
“But obviously, he’s the cause” Randy drank the water and returned to his seat too.
“I understand, it’s about what happened yesterday, right”
“Not that, he broke up with me”
“He did?” Randy became surprise and quiet after which he stood up to Karina who was battling with unseen tears. “Is okay, I’m gonna give you a call” he tapped her shoulder and walked out.
Hannah rushed into their house with the seed but unfortunately, Vena, her grandmother, saw it then slowly began to walk closer to her.
“Ann, what have you done?” Vena
“Nothing” Hannah replied trying to walk away from her.
“Don’t you dare walk away from me!” Vena shrieked in anger and the room darkened and vibrated then Hannah stopped after which everywhere went back to normal. “Why are you with the seed, Ann?”
“I took it from Jennifer” Hannah replied.
“What?!” Vena began angrily. “Do you know what you have done?! You want to change a prophecy which is just like turning the hands of the clock. You will bring upon yourself a shameful death if you don’t return the seed to the right bearer”
“I can’t” Hannah said.
“Jane is dead”
Vena opened her eyes widely and took two steps forward, “You mean you’ve killed her?!”
“I took her to the den and pushed her down the cliff”
“Oh my Kesha!” Vena exclaimed. Kesha was an ancient god of the witches and wizards kingdom. “You’ve done the unimaginable. You’ve broken a prophecy. How dare you?!” Vena took another step forward. “Now, give me the
seed” she commanded stretching her hand.
“No” Hannah hesitated. Just then, the door bagged opened and witches and wizards troop in. They activated their powers and magic which drove vena on the floor while Hannah ran upstairs. Some pursued her and succeeded in taking the seed from her before running away. Vena tried her best to fight back but all to no avail. She recognized the witches and wizards after they left, then ran upstairs to see Hannah lying on the floor. There were broken chairs and glasses everywhere.
“Ann! Ann!! Wake up!” Vena turned her around to see blood gushing out from her mouth. She quickly waved her hand slowly on her face and murmured unheard words. Suddenly, the blood dried up and Hannah coughed awake.
“Granny?” she called but Vena stood up without saying a word. She stared at her until she finally got on her feet too. “What happened, granny?”
“The seed has gotten to the wrong hands. Thanks to your stupidity, jealousy and selfishness!” Vena replied.
“Did they finally take it?”
“Stupid question. Now, lets go find Jennifer’s body before finding the seed” Vena began to walk downstairs followed by Hannah.
“How do we gonna get the seed?”
“I know those witches and wizards. They are called the buffulers, very powerful and wicked” Vena replied.
Just at the door, Hannah called her
grandmother who turned to her.
“I’m sorry, granny”
“For killing Jennifer or for taking the seed?” Vena asked then Hannah became speechless.
