Five days later
Location: Briton University
Iris, a student in her twenties walked to the counselor’s office and knocked gently on the door.
When she didn’t get a reply, she quietly opened the door and entered the office. Looking around the office admiring it; the wall was painted blue and the ceiling pink.
“Why would he choose pink, that’s a girl color,” she thought and shoke her head erasing the thought from her mind.
On the desk was a small glass with the name Mr. Sin written boldly on it.
“Sometimes I wonder why a parent would name their child SIN,” she said aloud sitting down on the chair opposite to that of the counselor’s waiting patiently for him to arrive.
“Maybe he reminded them of their sin or he was a sin” she smiled stupidly at her silly statement.
Few minutes later he arrived adjusting his tie while sitting on the chair.
He smiled looking at the small glass on his table, on which his name; Mr. Sin and his position; counselor was written boldly on it.
“You sent for me, Mr. Counselor,” Iris said looking straight at him.
“Yes Miss Iris, I sent for you”
“Okay, here I am”
“I have an important matter to discuss with you”
“Am on all ears” she replied stretching her hands.
“Well, the thing is that you have not been performing well in your line of course and I am really worried,” said the counselor studying her reaction as he continued.
“If you feel you can’t balance or cope with it, I’ll advise you to drop out on this course, like your brother did and cross-over to another course. Nursing is not a course you can play with, judging by your recent grades and behavior you may fail and repeat the course which I don’t want you to. I know you are still shaken about your mum’s death but you have to let it go and find someone to share your problem with…………
“I get it, Sir, I messed up last semester and I won’t let it happen again,” Iris said cutting the counselor off.
“In case you need someone to talk to, I…..”
“Thank you, sir, but I won’t need it. I will like to take my leave” Iris replied cutting him off once more.
She stood up from the chair and went out slamming the door leaving the counselor in total awe.
She had always been his best student right from her college where he taught biology before he became a lecturer here. A few years later he saw her in his class where he taught biology 101, she picked up also as the best student in her course that year but she suddenly changed after the death of her mother and that got him worried.
“To hell with him, I hate people poking into my privacy and family life,” she said as she kicked the waste bin while coming out of the school.
“Calm down girl or you are going to bring down this school with your temper,” Jake who happened to be her department mate said smiling. He was very funny and was known for making fun of people when they are angry.
Iris shot him a glare and the smile on his face was replaced with fear, they were always scared whenever she shot anyone that glare because they know what would follow next.
Surprisingly she didn’t do anything to Jake.
“You are lucky that you’re cute” She stared at him for a while and turned around heading to her abode, leaving a stunned Jake with his mouth agape.
“This is absolutely not real,” Jake said and pinched himself.
“Ouch, it’s real. I am not dreaming, am not f-----g dreaming” he exclaimed!
“You like her, don’t you? A pitch dark voice asked from behind.
“Of course I do”
“Well, she’s mine” the voice trailed off.
“Who the hell are you…!!? Jake paused when he turned and saw no one. He jumped up scared and ran like a man pursued by an evil spirit.
Iris waved at a cab which stopped right in front of her.
“That’s 10 dollars miss”
“Okay,” she said entering the cab.
The cabman ignited the car and set it in motion.
During the journey Iris was moody and the driver saw it on her face through the mirror.
“You look, moody miss, something bothering you?”
“Yeah, and it is none of your business. Just drive this god d--n car faster and drop me home” she replied harshly.
“Am sorry miss”
“Just try and stop poking your nose into other people business”
Few minutes later the cab stopped right in front of her house. She alighted and brought out money to pay him.
“Here is your pay,” she said stretching the money to him.
“Don’t bother about it miss, the ride is free”
“Yeah, you heard me right”
“You are welcome,” he said walking to his cab.
“Hey, about what happened earlier? Am sorry, I was really pissed off today” She said pouting her face.
“And you find me suitable to aggravate your anger on”
“I said am sorry”
“I get it, I was kidding. Off the record; the name’s Henry”
“You mean like the iris in our eye”
Iris made an angry face.
“Oh the queen is angry, who is going to save me from the wrath of the queen? Kill me, my queen, for I am not worthy of being your servant” He said while demonstrating which made Iris laugh.
“Rise Sir Henry of Camelot, your sin has been forgiven. She replied and they burst into laughter.
“That was funny, are you a comedian?
“Nay my Lady, I am a comedian”
“F--k, you are d--n funny,” she said admits laughter.
“I have to go”
“I wish you could stay, why not come in for a cup of coffee”
“I would like to but am late for an ordination.
“Bye, have a nice day, Lady Iris”
“Bye, Sir Henry.”
Iris turned and moved to the door where letters laid. She picked up the letters and opened the door leading to her room.
“It’s good to be home!” She exclaimed dropping her bag off her bed.
She brought out the letters and read through. They were letters from people feeling sorry about the death of her mum and expressing the sincere condolence.
“Condolence my foot, they hated her mum when she was alive and they had the gut to send a condolence message.”
“Screw them” she sobbed and drifted off in sleep.0June 11, 2020 at 9:24 pm #1390668June 11, 2020 at 9:31 pm #1390676Daniel EdemMember

@komolafejoseph wat about cold love nah… Wouldn’t u complete it??????0June 12, 2020 at 11:20 am #1390772
She woke up later in the night, the room was in a little bit dark but the light from the headlamp illuminated the room.
Looking at the clock beside the headlamp, it was 8:00pm.
“Geez, can’t believe I slept that long,” she said uncovering the duvet.
“I stink, I have to shower”
She wore her slippers and was going to the bathroom when she stopped due to the faint voices she heard coming from the sitting room.
“We don’t usually have visitors. Who could they be? She asked herself.
She removed her slippers and wore her socks, then tip-toe to the door of the sitting room where she traced the voices to and eavesdropped on their conversation.
“Are you sure she is going to do this for us? The girl asked Jason, Iris’s brother.
“Where is she?
Iris barged into the sitting room interrupting the discussion.
“Do what Jason?
“Oh, you are awake”
“Who are these people Jason?
“Go to your room I’ll explain, let’s go,” he said as Iris led the way to her room.
“Explain, now” she requested immediately they got to her room.
“I tried too, I wanted to but you just barged in on us”
“Answer me, who are those people? She asked.
“I met them online; they saw some of my videos and said they had this idea”
“What idea is that? She asked staring intensely at her brother.
“You’re going to freak out if I tell you”
“That’s my problem, just spill the shit out”
“Okay, just keep your voice down. Barry lost his girlfriend, he was drunk and he mistakenly smashed a bottle on her head killing her, He lived his life wishing to see her one last time to apologies, while Ace wants to see her young dead brother”
“And how is that any of your problems? Are you trying to get yourself in playing a witch board game or what?
“Barry found this ritual online that if you let yourself completely pass on in death for a while, you would be able to connect with your dead loved ones”
“Jason, I can see you have finally lost it. Like what the f--k!!!”
“It’s called SEANCE, people have done it before and it works”
“You want to see mum, right?
Jason stood still for a moment and replied “I want to do it for my video, Iris”
“Are you on drugs? Because only a drug addict would say such? Jesus; Jason, can you hear yourself”
“I thought it will be a cool experiment that would get a lot of views. I wanted to ask you if you will be there, we would need someone to film the whole thing”
“I get it, you’ve finally gotten crazy”
“You think I am crazy, don’t you feel sorry that mum died and I am getting a chance to see her and bid her farewell” Jason shouted.
“So it is to see mum. Do you think mum will be happy you came to see her in the realm of the dead?
“Do you think mum will be happy that you didn’t come to bid her farewell properly when there was a means of doing so, huh?” Jason asked.
“Fine what again do you want me there for?” Iris asked moving away.
“In case anything goes wrong, you will be the best person to help us with your expertise”
“Wait, what do you mean go wrong and expertise?” she asked.
In the sitting room
“That’s how it’s done Iris, we would have to suffocate ourselves so we can die temporarily and pass on to meet them,” Barry said.
“You mean you guys practically want to kill yourselves for this experiment,” said Iris.
“Yeah and you will revive us” Jason replied
“Jason am not a doctor, am a trainee nurse”
“We are not actually killing ourselves,” Ace said.
“Then what do you call what you just described, blackout, huh. I can’t believe am having this conversation”
“That’s why we are doing it”
“We wouldn’t be doing this if we hadn’t done research on it,” Barry said.
“Jason this is crazy and you are actually considering filming them, you’ll go to jail”
“Am not considering filming them, I’ll be doing it with them?” Jason said making Iris laugh.
“You are kidding me right, I hope you are”
“Am not, Iris do this for me, do it for us okay. Please, if you don’t we’re just going to do it anyway, even without you”
Iris holds her head thinking deeply
“We leave in the morning,” said Jason retiring to his room.

Hmmmm u guys shuld kn wat u ar venturting into o, i didn’t dey o, next.0June 13, 2020 at 8:31 am #1390947
THE NEXT MORNING
Iris walks to the kitchen and pours herself a cup of coffee, she sips it and Jason entered the kitchen.
“Good morning sis, I can see you are drinking coffee”
“Yeah, I will need it today” Iris replied
“Okay,” Jason said moving to his laptop
“What’s a Defoliate?” Iris asked
“I saw some girls using it online, said its good can’t help but try it out”
“F--K Jason, you want to look sexy when you die”
“Yeah, not a bad idea”
Jason moves closer to his sister and stand in front of her
“Look, I am not just doing it for fun or for the fame or video. Am doing this to see mum one last time and bid her goodbye, it’s a risk worth taking”
“I don’t want anything to happen to you Jason”
“Nothing will happen to me, okay. Thank you for always been there for me; it means a lot to me. Alright come on let’s get going, we’ve only got a few hours” Jason said heading out.
They arrived at a church and alighted from the car walking into the old abandoned compound. Graves of dead people occupied the compound as it was a custom of the church to bury any members who dies, in the compound.
They believed that it would prevent wicked spirits and demons from distracting or confusing the spirit of the dead member from entering purgatory which is a gateway to the afterlife.
“Is this the place, because it looks scary?” Ace commented as to start a conversation since they’ve all been quiet since they left the house.
“Well I have a little question,” Iris said while Jason stooped and faced her.
“What is your question?”
“Why are we doing this in an old, abandoned God forsaking church? This place is creepy” Iris asked.
“Where do you expect we do it huh, in a public and risk looking like a physicist. Barry’s research says all the partakers did it in an abandoned church and also Holy Mary will be here to pray for us if anything goes wrong?”
“Nice speech brother lets proceed.”
They walked to the church door with Jason leading the way, pressing the doorknob it creaked as Jason slowly opened it.
On a grave which faced the church front door stood a small spooky blackbird which looked malnourished, it stared at the teenagers as they entered the church and the door.
Its eyes shone red and it disappeared into thin air after the door had been shut.
Jason scanned the church, pointing to the alter he suggested they execute their plan there as a picture of Holy Mary was pasted there signifying she was watching them.
“Don’t tell me you believe in the myth that Mary is actually watching you”
“Come on, Pope always teach that Holy Mary is always watching and praying for us” Jason defended.
“Well if she is truly watching you she ought to tell you that this whole thing is a bad idea” Iris fired.
“Can we just carry on with what we are here for? Ace said moving to a chair which she sat on immediately.
Checking the camera, Jason sat in a chair in the middle of Ace and Barry.
“We are good to go,” Iris said recording them.
“Good day guys, its Jason your daredevil master. We are going to try a dangerous stunt, something I have never done before; we are going to the underworld to meet our love one but first, we have to die. Viewers discretion, don’t try this at home, everything filmed now is absolutely real, let the journey begin”
“I’ll go first” Ace volunteered.
Jason, with a big sack, covered Ace’s face suffocating her. The same thing was done to Barry and Jason.
Ace struggled to set free till she passed out awakening in the dark realm. She walked about in the dark until she heard her voice, she turned towards the direction the voice came from and she saw her long-dead brother.
“Lance” she called
“Welcome sis” He replied with a smile.
“Am glad to see you; I never thought I would see you again?” She said hugging him tight.
“You are here now and we will be together always”
“I can’t stay Lance; I have to go back”
“I thought you came to see me, Ouch my head hurts” He winced in pain.
“What’s the problem?”
Ace steps back fearfully after seeing the skeleton-like creature. Lance stood and the creature talked.
“You can’t leave; this is now your home”
In the human realm, Iris watches the timer she had set at three minutes and had agreed to wake them up after the given time had elapsed. That of Ace rings and Iris administers oxygen to her.
“Come on Ace,” she said pumping the oxygen bag.
“HO!” Ace exclaimed breathing rapidly.
Barry woke up in the dark realm; he called out his girlfriend name Sophia.
“Am right here Barry?” She said and Barry looked back to see her.
“It’s so good to see you, Sophia, I’ve missed you so much,” He said moving closer to her. “Am so sorry for what I did”
“NO, don’t be, I missed you too,” she said closing the distance between them and they locked their lips, kissing each other hungrily.
She broke the kiss and began kissing his neck then deep her fangs into his neck biting and s-----g his blood while he moaned in ecstasy. Barry timer also rings and Iris gives him oxygen.
“Ho, Ho” I am back.
Down there in the dark realm, Jason walks about in no direction looking for his mother.
“I thought if you think of the dead person you want to see before you die, you will be able to see them or did something go wrong,” Jason said in thought.
“Jason” his mum called and he looked ahead and saw her
“Mum” he called, walking towards her direction. “Is that really you?” he asked
“Yes, it’s me, Jason”
Jason ran and hugged his mum tightly.
In the human realm Jason’s timer goes off and iris pumps oxygen through his nose but he doesn’t respond.
“Come on Jason,” Iris said while Barry and Ace stared worriedly.
“Something is going wrong,” Iris said bringing out a syringe and a bottle.
“What could be wrong?” Barry asked
“Wake up Jason, please” Ace sobbed
“I don’t know,” she said draining the content in the bottle into the syringe and injecting it in Jason’s arm.
“I’ve missed you so much mum, I didn’t get a chance to bid you farewell”
“It’s okay, you are here now and that’s what matters” she replied picking up a cake from the ground.
“I baked this cake for your birthday the night I died but I didn’t get to eat it with you”
“I couldn’t eat the cake the next day which was my birthday”
“I know, that’s why it’s here. Happy birthday, son” she said with a smile.
“Blow the candles,” she said.
Jason with tears in his eyes blew the lights and stared at the cake. Drips of blood fell on the cake and he looked at his mother’s face to see her laughing as more blood dripped down on the cake.
“Mum” he called but she changed to something I can’t explain.
“You are not leaving Jason,” she said while he moved back.0June 13, 2020 at 8:49 am #1390950Daniel EdemMember
