BERMUDA(a place of no return)
EPISODE 5
 
 
I followed moriah. That night was hell. The worse situation to find myself is moriah’s anger. The whole house will always be on fire each time she gets angry. i was warned never to visit my daddy in the Lord, ever again. He too wasn’t allowed to visit me but a father’s love was more stronger than any f0rç£ put together. My daddy in the Lord did not st©p calling. He flooded my imbox with alot of messages filled with reasons why i should come back to the true God.
Moriah told me to block him. i did.
I AQUIRED three extoic [email protected] new toyota jeep. I will be TRAVELLing home with it. I bought a truck load of bags of rice, noodles, vegetable oil. I also bought wra-ppers, hollandaise Actually. I am going home this time, with a heavy ban-g.
i did not inform my mother i was coming. I wanted to take them unawares. I patiently waited until brothers returned. Then i [email protected]£ back.
It was a great come back. IMMEDIATELY i got to my compound in the village, my mother sat outside with her friend. i started spraying money on my mother. My younger brother heard the noise and [email protected]£ out. My mother stood up, her mouth was open wi-de in.shock and DISBELIEF. I kept spraying one.thousand naira notes. Then i changed to spraying her hun-derd dollar notes. The shock was too much for my people because they knew, how poor and wretched i was.
That night, my mother called me…….
-nna m, hmmmm. is this you?
-mama, i smiled , why? did i change?
-osi did i change? did you just ask that? she replied, haaaaa. How come?
-mama, you introduced me to God, this is what God can do. At a point in my life when i thought i have lost it. He showed me mercy and skyrocketed me.
-hmmmm….i fear this God!!! ewoooo!!! this is too much, in such a short time. God is great。 if he could muti-ply five loaves of bre-ad and two fishes in a second to feed five thousand men excluding children and women o with extra twelve baskets remaining. What can’t he do!!! i am so happy. ehennnnn, the equation has been balanced. i can now use you as an example that Jesus can bless. serving God is good.
-yes ooo..mama. it is indeed good.

-ok mama. i have heard.
That night, MORIAH [email protected]£. The make out that night was something else. For the first time, i was tired. MORIAH said to me….
-you are having a crusade. This is a crusade. you need alot of this for things to happen. You need alot of this, for you to see. This where you get your powers from. you should charge up. You need to do extra.
I WOKE UP THAT MORNING FEELING HIGHLY INTOXICATED. I STARTED SPEAKING IN ton-gueS. THE f0rç£ ON ME WAS HEAVY. MORIAH HAD LEFT. MY MOTHER WAS AT THE DOOR WHEN MORIAH [email protected]£ BACK. SHE INSTRUCTED ME TO [email protected] HANDS ON MY MOTHER’S HEAD.
-kelvin, she called [email protected] left hand on your mother’s head once she gets to this place. You are high in power now. Let there be a transfer of spirits. So she won’t be a trouble for us. Do it now.
MAMA WALKED INTO MY ROOM. SHE MET ME SPEAKING IN ton-gueS. SHE QUIETLY WITHDRAW AND SHUT THE DOOR IN A BID NOT TO DISTURB ME. MORIAH WAS MAD. I TRIED TO EXPLAIN IT WASN’T MY FAULT. SHE WOULDN’T HEAR THAT.
A DAY TO THE CRUSADE, MORIAH TOLD ME TO MAKE MY PROGRAMME POPULAR, SOMETHING REMARKABLE SHOULD BE DONE. SHE SAID SHE IS GOING TO OUR IGWE’S PALACE TO SNIFF LIFE OUT OF HIS SON. I WILL BE CALLED TO PRAY FOR HIM. HE WILL COME BACK TO LIFE. THIS WILL DRAW CROWD TO THE CRUSADE AND MANY SOULS TO US.
FEW HOURS LATER, THE RUMOUR WAS EVERYWHERE. THE PRINCE JUST SLUMMbe-d AND DIED. THE NATIVE MOURNING GONG WAS SOUNDED. I WAS OUTSIDE WHEN A YOUNG BOY RUSHED TO CALL ME.
-man of God, man of God, plea-se come to the palace. The igwe is calling all the pastors in this village. He still believes prayers can work. plea-se come and pray for the prince.
-hmmm, i sighed. but he is dead. we heard the MOURNING gong.
-yes, he is. but the king belives in prayers. plea-se man of God. plea-se come and pray too.
I WAS RELUCTANT. MAMA ENCOURAGED ME TO GO.
-mama, this person is dead na. i am not elijah. grace divers. i pretenciously argued with my mum.
AFTER MUCH PERSUASION, I AGREED TO GO. I SAW MORIAH STANDING . SHE FOLLOWED ME TO THE PALACE. WHEN I GOT TO THE PALACE, SO MANY PASTORS WERE THERE PRAYING. I WAITED TILL THEY WERE DONE. I WALKED UP TO THE IGWE AND MADE OBEISANCE. I INTRODUCED MYSELF.
-igweeee, you will live long. Igwe, i can see the spirit of your son. He is not far away. He is within. Get me a white bowl of water and white clothe. i need white candles too.
ALL THE MATERIALS WERE Brou-ghT. TO BE FRANK, THEY WERE FOR MERE SHOW. I COVERED THE PRINCE WITH THE WHITE CLOTHE AND PLACE THE CANDLES OVER HIS HEAD AND un-der HIS FEET. I STARTED SPEAKING IN THE MARINE ton-gue.
THE PRINCE SNEEZED AND WOKE UP . THERE WAS SHOUTING AND JUBILATION. IGWE GAVE ME LANDS. INDEED, THE INCIDENT DREW SOULS TO THE CRUSADE. ALOT MORE OF MIRACLES WERE PERFORMED. I WAS ENJOYING THE FAME, WEALTH, AND CHANGE OF STATUS I AM GETTING UNTIL THAT NIGHT.

EPISODE 6
 
I woke up to reality. My heart was pounding fas-ter than normal. I was engulfed in pain. My mother??? , hmmm. The crusade was two more days to wra-p up. I had wanted to end it. It is the reason the marine was asking for my mum’s head. I thought of a way to end it, no thought good enough was coming by.
Meanwhile, i still had my plans for pastor Heavenson intact. i planned on ridiculing and humiliating him before everyone. The said day he was to minister, i s£nt a bike man to pick him on the grounds that the cars are not in order.(he [email protected]£ by air. He didn’t come in his car) As if that wasn’t enough, he wasn’t ushered up to the stage. i practically instructed the bouncers not to let him get to the altar.
i saw how fraustrated, angry and devastated he looked. i was enjoying it all. He is [email protected] of the reasons i joined the marine. He too has to feel the heat. I wanted to so hit him so he can openly disgrace himself.
It worked!!!!. He bur-sted!!!. I instructed the [email protected]£ra men to pick every action. He was trying to f0rç£ his way to the altar. i heard words like..
-I won’t take this humiliation. i want to speak with the prophet. I am the guest speaker for today, today is the third day. Did he forget? what Nons-en-se!!!. This is disrespect and dishonor. i am a man of HONOUR. My church is one of the biggest in my locality. I have cars. and, do you know i was brou-ght here on a bike? what kind of insult is this?
I laughed. my boys replied him…
-oga shut up. you are just a hungry looking preacher, noise maker, that’s who you are.
That did the magic!!!! he got angry and flared up. He Actually took off his suit and gave the boy who replied him a punch. My boy laughed…
-hahaha, did you just punch? was that a punch? mehn your bone is made of nylon. man of God indeed. what would you be preaching to us today? how to punch?
Pastor heavson’s aggression started drawing so much Attention. I ordered my boys to bundle him out of the crusade ground and give him ten thousand naira for his transport.
Amist the fun i was having with humiliating my worse enemy, i wasn’t really happy. My bait with the marine is still on…. How can i raise my own hands to kill my mother?
That night again, mama stood in front of my door praying. Moriah could not come in. I Knew serious trouble was looming. i had to go out.
-mama, i said. you are disturbing me. ifyou want to pray, pray in your room. i am MEDITATING too. The noise is disturbing me. plea-se. thank you ma. i know you mean well for me but plea-se, you are disturbing me.
MAMA was looking at me like she had seen a ghost.
-what!!!! i asked.
-kelvin, hmmm, how did you know i was here? how did you know i was praying. i wasn’t shouting.
I developed ton-gue tie. i was looking at my mother. Then i had to cover up.
-mama, you were shouting. i heard your voice.
-i wasn’t shouting kelvin i wasn’t.
-mama, you were. plea-se i am not saying you shouldn’t pray. why do it by my door? what’s wrong with your own room?
-hmmm, kelvin. you are the one i’m praying for. Satan is not happy with your achievement so far. He is even happy with the on going crusade. and the miracles happening. Therefore, i took it upon myself to always pray for, every night till the crusade is over. They will not get you. So long as these knees are concerned (she tapped on her knees) what im confused about is how you were able to know i was here.
-mama thank you so much. plea-se don’t pray here again. pray in your room. you can go now.
MAMA stood starring at me…..
-mama, i said again, go and sleep. go now as i’m watching you. you are too old to be keeping vigil like this. Go and sleep. you have prayed enough. since my childhood you have been praying. Go and sleep.
Right in my spirit, i knew my mother will dig di-p into what just happened. How on earth did i just bur-st out of the room to tell her to st©p praying when i didn’t hear her pray. indeed, she wasn’t shouting. i was buried in a dung of de-ep confusion. I slammed the door and faced the shedevil herself MORIAH. She dragged me to the be-d. The business of the night started. That night was crazy. i gave in my best to plea-se her. i got the biggest shock when she said to me….
-Kelvin, about that @ssIGNMENT, i will help you out.
I was shocked and confused.
-what @ssIGNMENTMENT, i asked.
-your mother!!!
My heart beat was in spilits of seconds. i went on my knees…..
-MOH, plea-se, baby, plea-se. spare my mother. plea-se, i beg you.
-listen to me kelvin, you are now marine. you do not need a heart of flesh but of stone!!! with time anyways. There are reasons your mother can not live. You will find out soon.
THE NEXT DAY, I WAS re-adY FOR THE CRUSADE. I WANTED TO SEE MY YOUNGER BROTHER BRIEFLY BEFORE LEAVING. GETTING TO HIS DOOR I HEARD MY MOTHER’S VOICE.
-Franklin, she called my younger brother, i am not going to that crusade.
-mama why?
-hmmm,.something isn’t right. KELVIN IS NOT THE KELVIN I USE.TO KNOW.
-mama how? Franklin asked. God is using your son mightily.
-hmmm, i doubt. i doubt if it is this God i INTRODUCED kelvin to he is still serving.
MY HEART SKIPPED.
-something fishy is going on. do you know every night, i hear strange noise from his room. The noise of two people . very mad and dirty noise.
-JESUS!!! my brother Franklin shouted. mama, you have come again o.
-i am not joking. and each time, he calls a [email protected] name. He says MORIAH!!!
-hmmmm, my brother sighed. mama, i dont un-derstand what you are saying. i havn’t heard any noise.
-because you are canal, you can’t un-derstand. hmmm, i s£nce trouble. KELVIN IS NO MORE WITH THE LORD GOD OF HEAVEN, THE ONE I INTRODUCED TO HIM…..
