Well I’m just a young girl of my age. I was born into a family of four, but i killed all my family. Well it happens like this. though it was never intentional, but i noticed that whenever i got possessed like that, i will find it difficult to control myself and before i could realized anytime, something bad would have happened. That certain day, I was sent to the river to fresh some water, i took the bucket as i went towards the direction that leads to the river, on my way going i met with an old woman who asked me to help her with her stick, she was carrying a bunch of sticks on her head, so i felt pity for her. without hesitating i quickly dropped the bucket as i helped her to carry the sticks as we continue walking . After some walks then the woman asked me about my name. I’m Lizzy by name, i managed to answered. Lizzy she said, why are you been sent to the river by this time of the day she asked, well because i woke up late earlier that morning so reason why i decided to fresh it now since we got no water in the house again i replied. Just as the conversation kept going, i noticed that she was no where to be found, I looked around the bush but i couldn’t found her, i was frustrated that i have to stand alone in the bush looking like a moron, this time i was really afraid because it looks like a magic to me. Since i never come across stuff like that makes it looks strange to me. someone we were just talking some minutes back couldn’t be seen a minute later. I dropped the stick as all that was coming to my head was to run out of the place, so i ran back towards the direction where we’re both coming from. just then she appeared in front of me, she was really scaring. I was scared to see her that moment too, then she was walking towards my direction, I tried running back but i noticed that my legs don’t seems to be walking again or should i say they refused to walk that moment, I tried moving my legs but it was as if something had gum it with the ground which makes it difficult to move, just then the old woman walks towards my direction, i couldn’t believe it not until she came inside of me as i screamed. I woke up from my slumbering, it was really a dream i said as i stood up from the bed, what sort of dream is this, I went to look at everyone only to see my Mom, she was holding a knife, at first i thought it was normal, Mom what are you doing with the knife in your hand i asked then she looked at me and gave it to me, i collected the knife from her, then she told me to follow her which i did , we went to my dad room, only to see her sleeping, Mom why are we here i ask her, then she told me to kill him, what! this is Dad mom i said but she wasn’t listening, she instruct me to do it, which i also went ahead to do, it was as if my head wasn’t working that moment, i went ahead to where dad was sleeping as i begin to cut off his throat. Though he tried all his best but i think something must have been pulling him down, just then everything cleared out from my face, only to see myself clear that i just killed my own Dad, I looked around but Mom was no where to be found. I was scared to death that i don’t even know what to do, so i run out of the house. i can’t believe that i just killed my own dad , it was a big shock to me. The following morning i went back home only to noticed that everyone is dead i was surprised to see everyone dead. Did i killed them too i said as i couldn’t stop crying. Though i am not sure if i killed others too but the fact that i could remembered clearly that i was the one that cut off dad throat makes me want to believe that i did that to all my families. Everyone was seen dead that morning. I killed them all i said as i screamed. Since then i have been roaming around the street, from one place to another without any destination. But who cares, i just believe that doing this will only makes me feel i am punishing myself for killing all my familirs. I remembered my mom, i couldn’t stop thinking about the warmly relationship we have got with each other, I have loved her so much, so the fact that i killed her makes me want to kill myself, I love my family i said to myself.
Day passes and like that i have always feel this way, just the way you will hate yourself for doing what you’re not supposing to do, I just couldn’t stop thinking about it, but what happened that night was still a mystery to me because it started from my dreams, and later to become my mom who ask me to kill my own dad, and the following morning to found all dead. this things always get me confused whenever i planned to think about it. I just can’t forgive myself I said as i continue walking, I was not looking good due to the fact that i never plan to change my clothes since the incident from the last nigh. I have been wearing a single clothe since the day i left the house, so i wasn’t really good looking but who cares i just believe I’m punishing myself for killing my family, I won’t change my clothes and remain smelling and stinky like this till i will die i said, I don’t worth to be call a daughter because no good daughter will kill her family just for one stupid reason i said as i kept on walking, people who passes me by thought i am a mad person while others believe i am been punished by the gods of the land for killing my own family . some will even look at me as a mad person but i don’t care all i know and believe is that i must suffer for this i said as i continue walking. Later that night since it was late already i decided to find a place to sleep but everywhere seems dirty so i decided to sleep at one uncompleted building just to pass the night, so i went there to sleep. After some hours sleep then i saw exactly the same woman from the dream, she was putting on a red gown with bloods on her face, but what surprises me was that she was crying . I screamed as i stood up from my dreams. What’s the dream all about, who’s the woman and why am i seeing her for real in my dream I said as i stood up, since i won’t be able to sleep without not seeing her in my dreams so i continue walking throughout the night. this was how i have been living my life for years, thinking I’m doing this to punish myself for what i did, my belief was that the only way to get forgiveness from my family is to get myself punish, some believe I’m mad why others that heard rumors about me believe that i killed my family for a money ritual and later bounce back on me so they believe i am been punished by the gods, but the truth still remains the same.
