THE WITCH MOTHER HAS INSTRUCTED OBORO NOT TO GO TO WAR WITH HIS WAR MEN.
-why? why witch mother. i personally want to drive my sword into that fool IZINGA.
-Do not go to MUZARA. let your CAPTAIN lead the war men. let the war men as-sEMBLY at my temple a night before the war day. i nee-d to fortify them.
-witch mother, atlist let MDIRA my son go with them.
-OBORO, Warriors are not for wrestling matches. NEITHER YOU NOR YOUR SON IS PERMITTED TO GO MUZARA. (she hit her stick on the ground) DUROGO has spoken.
ZIORA SAT ON THE MOUNTAIN MEDITATING. SHE FELT THE PREs-en-sE OF A BEING AROUND HER. SHE CONTROLLED HERSELF AND WAITED. FEW MINUTES LATER, THE BEING EMERGED. ZIORA STOOD UP IN PRETENSIOUS FEAR AND TRIED TO RUN AWAY.
-hahahahahaha, the being laughted.
-plea-se don’t hurt me ZIORA Pleaded. i am only a slave boy working for my master, the warlord, plea-se don’t hurt me.
-hahahahahahahaha, you are not the one afterall. we seek HER.
-Her? who is HER?
-the chos£n one. the deliverer,. we were told we shall find her on the mountains of MUZARA.
-women do not climb mountains in MUZARA. The mountains are very high and rou-gh.but why do you seek her?
-WE MUST DESTROY HER BEFORE SHE DESTROYS US. I am the daughter of the witch mother of KUZA, WHO IS NOW THE PRIESTESS OF UMA. I have been s£nt to monitor the mountains of MUZARA. WE MUST GET HER AND KILL HER. NOW, i no longer want to see you here. Tell your master that you saw the witch daughter of kuza and she warned you never to sit here because we monitor here from now on.
-i dare not say it before my master, he will kill me. The land of MUZARA belongs to the CREATOR. i will die if i tell i saw a……. i can’t even mention the name。
-hahahahaha such a coward. now be gone.
ZIORA c@m£ DOWN THE MOUNTAIN LIKE A LEARNER. WHEN SHE GOT INTO HER CHAMBERS, SHE LAUGHED.
-if only you knew silly witch daughter that the slave boy is the “HER” you seek for. Too bad, you won’t see throu-gh to go back to your witch mother. BY THE CREATOR, I SIEZE YOUR SIGHT
ZIORA WATCHED AS SHE COULD NO LONGER CLIMbe-d DOWN.
-hahahahaha, good. one more treat witch daughter and that will be all. BY THE CREATOR, LET THERE BE CRACKS ON THE MOUNTAIN, LET THE MOUNTAINS SPLIT INTO TWO, NOW FALL IN AND NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN.
THE MOUNTAINS OPENED RIGHT IN FRONT OF WHERE THE WITCH DAUGHTER STOOD AND SHE WAS SWALLOWED UP.
-The CREATOR be praised. (she smiled) power is not shown with words, but with action.
IZINGA AND HIS MEN WERE AT THE TRAINING FIELD. ZIORA INTERCEDED FOR THEM. SHE SPOKE TO THE CREATOR ON THEIR BEHALF. AS SHE INTERCEDED, SHE SAW……..
THE WAR MEN OF UMA WERE ALre-adY ON THEIR WAY. SHE STOOD UP. SHE IS NOT PERMITTED TO STEP OUT OF THE CHAMBERS TO THE FIELD, YET SHE nee-dED TO Pas-s THE MESSAGE ACROSS TO IZINGA. SHE WAS CONFUSED.
-what do i do? oh CREATOR, plea-se show me what to do? what do i do? (she turned around and saw a jar) WATER!!!! (she quic-kly filled the jar with water and ran off to the FIELDs. IZINGA sighted her from afar and ran towards her)
-(he sl@pped her) how dare you? i warned you DIDN’T i? how many times do i have to tell you your SAFETY is the hope of a whole PROVIENCE. What now? have you come to show yourself? the orange can never be sweet until it is RIPE.
-my warlord, (she pres£nted the jar) water, i brou-ght water. Actually a message and not really the water. Hurry and be re-ady, THEY ARE ALMOST HERE. THE OIL FIRST. THE WHITE CLOTH AT THE EDGE OF YOUR SWORDS. THEY ARE ALre-adY AT THE CAVES. BE re-adY. (She took off)
IZINGA FELT BAD. HE HAD Sl@pPED HER FOR NO REASON.
-LULU, izinga called.
-apology accepted my lord, get re-ady!!!! (she ran back home)
-oh HEAVENS, what a child!!!! (he ran back to the camp) get re-ady war men. put on the oil and tie the white clothes to your swords.
ONE OF THE WAR MEN ASKED.
-My lord, is this not witchcraft?
-HEAVENS forbid. The CREATOR forbid that i, IZINGA use witchcraft. The messanger of the CREATOR from afar s£nt words to me. The people we are up against do not fight with ba-re swords. They have the backing of witchcraft, this is the backing of the CREATOR. The messanger from afar has also s£nt LULU to us. Those who we are up against are alre-ady close. AT the caves. WE ARE ON THE CREATOR’S SIDE, WE ARE SAFE. Now, re-ady?
-(izinga pushed his hands forward) AHEEEEEEEEAAAAADDDDD(he shouted)
THEY MOVED. THEY MET THE WAR MEN OF UMA AT THE ENTERANCE OF MUZARA. THE WERE SHOCKED.
UMA’S CAPTAIN SHOUTED…….
MUZARA WAS LEADING WITH THE SWORD. SLITS FOR SLITS, KILLING MEN OF UMA. THEN THEY INVOLVED WITCHCRAFT. ALL OF A SUDDEN, THERE WAS THICK DARKNESS, BATS WITH RED EYES FILLED EVERYWHERE. THEIR SMELL WAS TERRIBLE.
-Do not spit. keep fighting..kill, but do not spit.
THE BATS POURED VENOUM FROM THEIR MOUTHS TO THE BODIES OF THE WAR MEN OF MUZARA, THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO MELT. THEY DIDN’T. THE WAR MEN OF MUZARA WERE WINNING, THE nas-ty SMELL WAS INCREASING. IZINGA KEPT SHOUTING AND FIGHTING.
-Do not spit. Fight ooooooon, the CREATOR is with us. Do not spit.
UMA SAW THAT THE BATTLE WAS AGAINST THEM, THEY FLED. THE WAR MEN OF MUZARA CHASED THEM TILL THEY RAN OUT OF THEIR PROVIENCE. THE WAR ENDED IN MUZARA’S FAVOUR. IZINGA AND HIS MEN WON.
AS THEY RETURNED, THE PEOPLE c@m£ OUT.THERE WAS NOISE AND JUBILATION. UMA WILL NOT TAKE OVER MUZARA ANYMORE.
THE LAND OF UMA.
OBORO WAS ROARING LIKE A WOUNDED LION.
-witch mother, can you explain to me? what NONs-en-sE is this? what kind of EMBARRas-sMENT is this? witch mother, i wanted to go with them, you refused. you st©pped me. MY VERY FIRST WAR, I WAS DEFEATED. OH NOOOOO, noooooo, i can’t take it. DUROGO!, DUROGO!!!! OOOOOH DUROGO, you have disappointed me.
-will you shut up before i turn you into A crippled monkey? how dare you? DUROGO is a dangerous god. it doesn’t show mercy if you trespas-s. For this stupid act of yours, you shall appease DUROGO with seven female GOATS. Something is not right here? how were they able to SURVIVE the venoum of the bats of DUROGO. SHIRIMA, your captain said, their CAPTAIN kept telling them not to spit. How did they find out that? They were supposed to melt, they did not. My daughter was SWALLOWED today by their MOUNTAIN. Something is not right. There is a being in MUZARA. i have a feeling that the WOMAN in the PROPHECY is in MUZARA. We shall s£nd spies in DISGUISE. So long as that WOMAN lives, OBORO, your reign will be ruined. WE MUST FIND THAT WOMAN AND KILL HER NOW!!!!
THE KING OF MUZARA CALLED IZINGA.
-GREAT IZINGA. i am baffled at your victory against UMA. i must congratulate you.
-The CREATOR has done it your MAJESTY, not me, not my men.
-hmmmm, nevertheless IZINGA, i heard there is a MESSANGER OF THE CREATOR FROM AFAR, who visits you. He gave instructions on how to go about this battle and it worked well. IZINGA, i want him for keeps. The CREATOR really works throu-gh him. i will pay any amount just for him to be the seer of MUZARA. Fetch him, bring him to me.
IZINGA WAS CONFUSED, SPEECHLESS AND DUMBFOUNDED
-your MAJESTY, i don’t know where he comes from. He only comes when he has a message for me.
THE KING WAS DISAPPOINTED.
-IZINGA, i taught you are wise. how can you not ask him where he comes from and where he stays?
-your MAJESTY, i did, i did. He will always say, HE IS THE MESSANGER OF THE CREATOR FROM AFAR.
-hmmm, if he comes again,tell one of your men to come and tell me. i don’t mind meeting him myself. MUZARA does not have a SEER from the CREATOR. Any PROVIENCE without a SEER, from the CREATOR is doomed. We are all blind in MUZARA. Who will lead us to the CREATOR? i have ernestly prayed that the HEAVENS should smile on us and give us A SEER. what could we have done? if the CREATOR hasn’t spoken to us throu-gh the seer. MUZARA, would have been captured by now. plea-sE IZINGA. Do everything you can to find him.
-i will try my best your MAJESTY.
IZINGA THOUGHT ABOUT THE KING’S REQUEST. THE THOUGHTS BEGAN TO PUT IDEAS INTO HIS HEAD.
-hmmm, the king is right. How come i never thought of this. MUZARA is safe for ZIORA. That OBORO is bent on kiling her. we have no seer in MUZARA. ZIORA, is a complete package. A WARRIOR and A SEER. Hmmmm,(he shook his head) UMA!!!! ZIORA, is supposed to be king in UMA but her life is in danger. She is just 10. ok, what if she dies? How then can she become king? MUZARA nee-ds a SEER TOO. ZIORA STAYS IN MUZARA.
WITCH MOTHER s£nT A SPY TO MUZARA.
-MUZARA, is of the HEAVENS. They serve the CREATOR but they do not have a seer. You both shall go as a MESSANGER of the CREATOR. The KIng of MUZARA so de-sires a SEER. Go to him. Tell him you have been s£nt by the CREATOR. Tell him the CREATOR heard his cry and de-sire to have a seer. You will get his heart with this. He will give you the best place to stay in MUZARA. Your mission is to look for the WOMAN. (she gave them a glas-s) throu-gh this, anywhere you face it and it shows STARS, ALOT OF STARS, That’s the place. Go in there, she will recognize who are but before she tries to attack,KILL HER. Only then, we shall enjoy our stay in UMA. GO, GO, GO…….
THE WIZARD LEFT FOR MUZARA. THAT NIGHT, WITCH MOTHER CALLED A MEETING FOR ALL THE WITCHES.
-i, the witch mother, called this meeting to discuss the way forward。 mortals must not rule over us. we are meant to rule over mortals. I want the throne of UMA too. We should start PLANNING on chasing away the mortals and ma-king this land ours. First, we must make sure we have really gained our ground. OBORO cannot be TRUSTED. He is a crook. He is greedy too. He might end up destroying us. GET re-adY. I HAVE s£nT OUT ONE OF US TO MUZARA. ONCE HE GETS THE WOMAN AND KILLS HER, WE NOW FACE OBORO AND TAKE UMA.
IZINGA WALKED INTO HIS CHAMBERS. IMMEDIATELY, ZIORA STOOD UP.
-My Warlord, The battle against fellow mortals, the CREATOR will help but the battle against the CREATOR himself, who will help?
IZINGA WAS SHOCKED.
-my child, who told you that?
-my father, in my dream, to you.
IZINGA BEc@m£ MORE AFRAID.
-what does that mean my warlord?
-emmm, it’s just a dream. were you thinking about your father?
-nooo, i wasn’t. not atall.
-go back to your sleep my child. you are going to have a tough night from TRAINING tonight.
ZIORA WENT BACK TO SLEEP.
-oh HEAVENS. (IZINGA SAID SHIVERING) My CREATOR, MUZARA nee-ds ZIORA. she is safe here. She will be loved and respected here. As a child she is, she will be protected. (IZINGA BROKE INTO TEARS) I feel for my child. what i saw in the battle with them is crazy. A little child like that can’t handle such. She will still be fulfilling destiny as a SEER. I will keep ZIORA for MUZARA.
THE SPY FROM THE WITCH MOTHER GOT TO MUZARA THE NEXT DAY AND MATCHED TO THE KING’S PALACE. THE PALACE GUARDS REFUSED HIM ENTERANCE.
-who are you?
-tell the king, THE MESSANGER OF THE CREATOR FROM AFAR.
THE KING HIMSELF c@m£ OUT TO WELCOME HIM. HE WAS SO OVER JOYED.
-you are welcome.
-The CREATOR heard your cry and s£nt me to you.
-oh HEAVENS, the CREATOR be praised. plea-se come in, come in.
IN THE PALACE .
-you are welcome. just yesterday, i discussed with IZINGA. you know IZINGA, the one you normally come to occasionally. The one who you told what to do in the battle with the witchcraft war men of UMA.
-i can’t remember your MAJESTY. i can be in TWENTY DIFFERENT places before sunset.
-hmmm, i have s£nt for IZINGA, when you see, you will surely remember him.
-Your MAJESTY, MUZARA IS BLESSED. The CREATOR has granted her victory all round.
-The CREATOR be praised.
FEW MINUTES LATER, IZINGA c@m£ IN.
-oh, my mighty warlord, IZINGA, is here. come, come, (the king said, smiling). come and see who we have here, THE MESSANGER OF THE CREATOR FROM AFAR.
IZINGA. STOOD CONFUSED, LOOKING AT THE MAN BEFORE HIM.
-your MAJESTY, this is not the MESSANGER who c@m£ to me. maybe there are many MESSANGERs of the CREATOR from afar but this is not the one who brings me a message.
THE KING FROWNED.
-well, like you said, there might be many other MESSANGER of the CREATOR from afar because he c@m£ when i really nee-ded him. i have always lamented we have no SEER AMONGST US. I believe the CREATOR has s£nt you.
-YOUR MAJESTY, can i have a word with you in pri-vate?
-IZINGA, say it here. Nothing should be pri-vate before the MESSANGER of the CREATOR.
-hmmm. my king, do not be too quic-k to draw conclusion on this. He must pas-s throu-gh a test.
THE SPY INTERRUPTED.
-young man, describe the man who comes to you as the MESSANGER of the CREATOR.
-if you were a SEER from CREATOR, you would have told us and not ask us.
THE SPY TURNED TO THE KING.
-you woke up this morning with a sharp pain on your w@!st..Even untill now, you feel the pain.
THE KING ALMOST FAINTED OUT OF SHOOK.
-yes, yes, yes, you are indeed the MESSANGER from the CREATOR. i had the sharp pain on my w@!st, it is still there.
-the queen helped in mas-saging it too.
-oh heavens…..the CREATOR be praised. He is from the CREATOR. IZINGA, any more doubts? you can see, he said EXACTLY what HAPPENED last night.
-i still doubt him and i will put him throu-gh my own test..
THE KING GOT ANGRY.
-IZINGA, i don’t un-derstand you. i told you to get the MESSANGER of the CREATOR from afar, you said you don’t know where he stays. Now by mercy of the heavens, ONE c@m£ TO ME AND TOLD ME WHAT I WENT THrou-gh LAST NIGHT, You are still doubting it. I AM THE KING OF MUZARA, MY DECISION IS FINAL. HE STAYS!!!
-your MAJESTY, i am the WARlORD OF MUZARA, Your SAFETY and that of all the people of MUZARA, falls on me. SO long as the SAFETY of MUZARA is concerned, YOUR DECISION is NOT FINAL. I will make my own findings, YOUR MAJESTY. Your cabinet men has to be INVOLVED too. This is not just about you but about the whole of MUZARA. LIVE LONG YOUR MAJESTY, I MUST LEAVE NOW. (IZINGA left)
THE KING s£nT FOR HIS CABINET MEMBERS. THEY WERE SO HAPPY TO SEE THE SEER. THEY ENDORSED IT. IMMEDIATELY THE SPY WAS GIVEN A PLACE MENT FOR NOBLE MEN.
IZINGA GOT HOME. HE WENT STRAIGHT TO ZIORA.
-my child. A man is at the palace claiming to be a the MESSANGER OF THE CREATOR FROM AFAR. I know he is lying. inquire from the CREATOR, who is that man????
-my WARlORD, the hand WRITING of the CREATOR has no duplicate. Destiny cannot be reversed. (IZINGA GOT EVEN SCARED THE MORE.) only a fool thinks the CREATOR can be fooled. my warlord, do not be the jar that was used to serve kings and noblemen only to end up as waste bin a a poor man’s house.
IZINGA GOT ANGRY.
-how dare you talk to me in that manner.
-you first did to the CREATOR my lord. He just replied you.
IZINGA LEFT HIS CHAMBERS AND WENT OUTSIDE.
THE SPY, KULI BY NAME WENT TO THE KING.
-my king. it was revealed to me. The person IZINGA claims he is MESSANGER OF THE CREATOR FROM AFAR, IS A WIZARD. IZINGA HAS BEEN COMMUNICATING WITH WIZARDS. HIS HOME MUST BE SEARCHED.!!!!!
THE KING s£nT PALACE GUARDS TO ACCOMPANY THE SPY TO IZINGA ‘S HOME.
-great warlord, by the king, your home is to be searched.
-you have been COMMUNICATING with WIZARDS who claim to be MESSANGER of the CREATOR from afar. (the spy replied) we nee-dto search your house.
-what? this is an insult to my person.
-this is royal order warlord, step aside.
THE SPY WENT IN WITH THE GLas-s. IMMEDIATELY, HE Brou-ghT IT OUT STARS FILLED IT. THE SPY WAS SHOCKED.
-SHE IS HERE!!!!
TO BE CONTINUED.
