GHOST RUN!” Episode 2
“Adeyanju! Step on the gas! Step…. on…the…accelerator” I screamed but Adeyanju held the steering like It was his very own life…
” I don’t think we should!” He replied shaking like a leave in the cold…
” Adeyanju, this is not the time to be Afraid, step on the gas!” I said as I wanted us far away from the witch girl
” I think we should help her, This is what God expects of us, Bible states that if your brother or sister comes to you for help and you tell him to come back the next day, it will be counted as a sin!” AdeYanju said unbelievably as My jaw dropped but I knew I had to salvage the situation again before we both became the witch’s next target…
“ AdeYanju, you are quoting the wrong scripture! What about Suffer not a witch to live?” I said as the witch girl kept knocking at the car window…
“AdeYanju, She is a witch!” I screamed one more time, but I couldn’t tell what devil came over him. He pressed the release button of the car lock. The witch girl saw it and opened the front door, pushing me and sitting in the front seat with me… Her smell was choking… I could smell evil exuding from her, the cloud of darkness around her was thick!
“ Why don’t you take the backkkk …seat!” I managed to say
“ I have no time for that… AdeYanju be a man and move this car!” The witch girl commanded.
AdeYanju answered immediately…. I could read Adeyanju’s thought… I am sure he was wondering how she knew his name. AdeYanju and I exchanged shocked looks.
“Actually, we don’t know where we are going, we are ….” I said
“ Missionaries…” The witch girl cut in
We knew the best thing for us was to be silent. We had picked up a wrong passenger, All I was thinking was how, where and when she would alight….
“Take the next turn….” she commanded
“ Take the Left turn!”
“ Take the right bend!”
She kept giving the directions and we followed obediently.
After about 15 minutes of driving in circles, the witch girl said…
“ Stop the Car!” She said and AdeYanju halted immediately
“ That is your new house, but for AdeYanju’s sake, I will give you this advice.. Mororo is not for you! You won’t survive one week…and you Adenike, I believe the reason you don’t yet have a child is because you are heartless. You should be grateful I am not in a terrible mood, I would have punished you for what you just did.” She said and like a scene from a horror movie I have never been a fan of, she turned into a black bird with purple feathers before flying away!
Our lives paused for few minutes that felt like time stopped for centuries.
“ AdeYanju, reverse this car and get us out of here!” I managed to say while feeling out of breath, but unfortunately the least of the thing I expected to happen suddenly hit AdeYanju and I.
The car unexpectedly broke down….
“ What just happened?” AdeYanju said as he kept trying to get the car engine to respond…
Then followed was a sudden whirlwind, a wind that felt like the gods of Mororo were angry….
