EGG OF LIFE
Susan is sitted in her office when madam Sylvia walked it.
-just imagine the gold digger. Sitting on a stolen seat. Whatever you have used on my son that has made him despise us and love you, you had better start unusing it now or else, ISHI-ISHI will come for your head. You swine.
-hahahahaha, mother in-law susan replied, (she enchanted with ishi-ISHI’s slogan) “IKE DI NA AKWA NDU”.(There is power in the egg of life) I hope you can relate. AGWO ISHI-ISHI ANAGHI ELO IBE YA. (Ishi-ishi snake doesn’t swallow it’s kind) i hope you can also relate. Mama, unu merem thirty makachi(mama you guys really dealt wit me.) i know what you know. My candid advice, go home and mourn your loss i na nu? Have you heard?) Makana,okwa ifulu oche a, egwigom codedly.(you see this chair, i have come to stay).

Mama was lost. She couldn’t believe what she just heard.
-susan, i thought you were a church girl. How come you know ISHI-ISHI?
-oh really ? Sorry to disappoint you ma’am. Are you not a CHRISTAIN MOTHER?, Mother in isreal, and you shameless boast of ishi-ishi openly. Your likes push people into doing what they don’t want to do. For once, let me see you and your daughters suffer. You had better dance to this tune because you have no choice. I know what you know. (Her phone rang. She picked.) hello, this is the office of the C.E.O of TONY [email protected] (To her mother in-law) let’s call it a day.

——-That night Tony called his mum———
-hello son, how are you?
-i don’t have time for plea-santries tony replied. You are to vacate that ware-house at park avenue in 3 days. My wife will be needing it for her lace material coming in this week. Failure to comply will attract f0rç£ful eviction. Good night.
-hello, hello, Tony you can’t be serious. This is so not fair. (He had alre-ady dropped )
I swear to God susan, i will kill you.
Madam sylvia almost went mad. She was just shouting and crying on t©p of her voice.
-susan, i swear down, i will poison you. I will kill you. Oh God!!! My own son? For the love of him, i told my late husband to write his name on all the do¢vments of all our properties. Now, this bit-ch comes from nowhere to rubbish my efforts? Susan, i will kill you. I swear down. Arrrrrrrrggggh!!! (Crying) what is happening ? No this can’t be happening to me.

-Tony? What about tony? Is he ok? Did something happen to him? Mum, plea-se st©p this crying and talk to me. You are scaring me.
-Nasa, Tony gave me three days to vacate the warehouse at park avenue.
-that’s Nons£nce. Total Nons£nce. Arrant rubbish. Who does that? Was he drun!kor on drugs? And did he tell you why?.
-(crying) you can’t imagine his reasons. His wife’s lace material is coming in next week and she wants to use the warehouse.
-WHAT!! Over my dead b©dy. ( she went to her mum’s drawer and took out her father’s gun) i will kill that bastard and kill myself. Prepare my funeral mum.
MADAM SYLVIA HELD HER.
-Chinasa, i wish we can kill her but i don’t want is you kill yourself because of that nob©dy, mba oooo. Nasa biko, biko nwam, plea-se my daughter, don’t kill yourself o.

CHINASA DROPPED THE GUN AND START ON THE FLOOR. TEARS ROLLED DOWN HER EYES. SHE GAVE A LOUD SCREAM
-Heeeeeeeeeeey!!!!! Mum. Arrrrrgh!!!! Technical knock out oooooo. Heeeeeey.
THE NEXT DAY MADAM SYLVIA WENT TO VISIT HER FRIEND MADAM GOLD.

MADAM SYVIA JUST WAVED HER OFF AND SAT DOWN.
-Nwa, what is it, MADAM GOLD asked.
-gold, I’m finished. I’m ruined. (Crying) my son gave me three days to vacate the warehouse at park avenue. His wife’s lace material is coming in next week.
-what? This is Nons£nce na. Does that girl know how you suffered to get those properties? Where was she when NWANYI ASABA almost took all from your late husband. We need to go back to ISHI-ISHI O. How can he save you and then aid someone to destroy you. Infact we are going now. we are going in my car.
——————AT THE SHRINE—————
After their complaints, ISHI-ISHI PRIEST Said the worse to them.
-ISHI-ISHI IS SILENT. HE HAS NOTHING TO SAY.
-Meaning?replied madam gold. Is ISHI-ISHI now taking sides?
-ISHI-ISHI says you should leave at once. NOW.
——–in madam Gold’s CAR——-
-Gold, madam sylvia called out. Susan sle-pt with the PRIEST of ISHI-ISHI
-GBAM. Replied madam gold. Ke ka isi mara ihe dim n’obi? (How did you find out what’s on my mind) ha!! ARUNSI CONJI N’EGBU. Tufiakwa.
-what brou-ght about the sudden change? You know he once requested such from me when my husband was alive. I refused and gave him STELLA my househelp. He lavished that girl no be small. That was what killed stella na. That stupid fool dragging my husband with me. Kai, susan does not know who she is dealing with.
-stella owu aha mmadu? (Is stella someb©dy’s name?) let her come and drag husband na. Abeg, what do we do about the matter on ground. ISHI-ISHI is not helping matters o. He is taking sides with susan.
-hmmm, i can’t believe this, ISHI-ISHI asking me to leave. How many young ladies i have given to ISHI-ISHI and he pays me back like this? I will wait a little and if he is not acting to my favour, i will look for another alternative. Las las, i kill susan and kill myself.
-for what kwan? Baby don’t mention that side again o. If you kill yourself, i gbara mbada lose na(that’s a very big loose) let’s patiently wait for his verdit.
THEY ZOOM OFF.

-As for me sis, i will like to pay that idiot a little visit.
Three months have expired. Susan visited ISHI-ISHI to renew the egg.
-daughter, the priest called. You will need to fortify yourself. You have stepped on dre-aded toes. They are angry.
-what do i do?
-Are you in a hurry?
-no I’m not.
-can you endure pain?
-depends on the kind of pain.
-let’s see then. Take off your clothes and jump into that drum.
-what??? Take off my clothes ? Can’t i jump in with my clothes on?
-(laughter) no. When you die, the whole people will see that b©dy you are hidding. But I’m the only one here. Take off your clothes and save your life.
SHE RELUCTANTLY TOOK IT OFF
-The number of hours you stay in that drum without screaming determins the number of months you will be unhurt. Now jump in.
Susan jumped in but could only endure for 3hrs.
-for three months, you will be indestructible. You have found favour before ISHI-ISHI. Henceforth, st©p going to church. re-move the bible from your house. Do not entertain anything church around you. Wear a t©uçh of red anywhere you are, everywhere you go.
When you are in trouble just make a wish. And it is done. HENCEFORTH, YOU WILL SERVE ONLY ISHI-ISHI. Don’t not eat bitterleaf soup. Do not take bitter cola, Do not eat red meat, chicken, or fish. Eat only snails.
SUSAN WAS JUST CRYING. BITTER LEAF is her best soup, she doesn’t joke with fish, she hates snails,. WHAT A PRICE!!!
A NEW SUSAN HAS JUST EMERGED.
MADAM SYLVIA JUST DISCOVERED THAT BRENDA WILL DO THE MAGIC OF BRINGING SUSAN DOWN.
BRENDA IS NOT A MEMBER OF ISHI -ISHI.
BRENDA IS ABOUT TO EMBARK ON A FRIENDLY LOOKING BUT DISASTROUS MISSION FOR SUSAN.
IT’S BRENDA VERUS SUSAN.

You are the best sister in-law any one can have. plea-se darling, forgive me.
-hmmm, get up. Sit. This drama wasn’t necessary. You are bunch of leopards and we all know leopards don’t change their sp©ts. Incase you want to know my mind, I AM NOT DONE DEALING WITH YOU ALL YET. You turned my husband into my enemy and made my life a living hell and to execute more wicked plans you [email protected]£ pla-ying MERCY JOHNSON? I am too smart for this nas-ty pretence.

I am so going to need TERRIBLE. I need to see that gold digger go throu-gh TERRIBLE pains. I need to see mum. (She drove off)
———SUSAN WENT TO SEE HER MUM———-
-mum, in as much as I’m enjoying being in control, I’m suffering mum. I went to renew the STUFF yesterday. According to the priest, i found favour before the great ISHI-ISHI. I had to go throu-gh the process of FORTIFICATION.
-Wow, really, congratulations, meaning you are indestructible ? How many hours were you able to endure?
-mum, just three hours. I almost died. The pain was unbearable.(crying)
-ha! That’s just three months o. Kai, and that’s for the whole year.
-what???? For the whole year?
-my dear, that fortification was what Saved me during your dad’s burial. I was able to hold on for 6 hours. I feel seriously ill after that. I was made to swear before 5 powerful deities to prove i didn’t kill your father. Not for ISHI-ISHI, they would have killed me, even if i was innocent.
-mum, the worse [email protected] is all i was asked not to eat. Mum, how can i live without eating fish, meat and chicken even bitterleaf soup?
-(her mum smiled) if you die, will you be able to eat those things ? It shouldn’t be a problem avoiding them to be alive.
-i should also avoid church. Mum, I’m in the choir. I should do away with any church stuff. I’m to serve only ISHI-ISHI.(tears) what do i tell my pastor? The choir,
-my friend forget those people. When you were suffering, what did they do to help you.
-Ehen, mum, do you know what? Brenda [email protected]£ to my office begging.
-hahahahahahahaha you don’t mean it. What did you tell her?
-the truth of course, bunch of leopards , i know them. Their new strategy won’t work with me. Ndi ara. I even reminded her to help me tell her mum tomorrow is the last day. I need space in my warehouse.
-hahahahahahahaha my land-lady. Pepper them Nons£nce. Ndi ara.
