    The Reincarnation

    By: Alfred Wysdom (Mr Suspense)

    Episode One.

    ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

    Olamma also called Ola is a child who everyone sees as evil, even though she was full of wisdom and does things in an adultlike manner. She acts so strangely many times and would not do things like every other being. Her parents had taken her to so many medicine men and women to find solution to her strange behaviour, yet she remained whom she is. She is a child known and by many as Ogbanje (Reincarnated one).

    She had died and returned to the same family on a number of times, the most baffling thing when she returns was that she remembers every event in her past world and identifies whoever spoke against her and unleashed her anger on them. She kills and no one finds out she was the one who kills, not even the most powerful medicine men.

    She often dies once she gets to age seven and each time she dies, her mother would have been pregnant for another child.

    ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
    “Olamma is dead, I told us the last time she came with same mark given to her by her parents. Same mark, same eyes, same speech, everything is just the same. She seemed like one who reincarnated”. Ego said.

    “Could be a coincidence, remember they say every single human being has a replica somewhere, she could be one of such”. Obidiya replied Ego

    ” Adanna her mother had complained severally, the child in question appears evil. As far as I’m concerned, she is same a the previous child Ogonna had. She is pregnant again and she (Ola) had fallen sick, just like it happened the last time, I was in the full picture of it”. Ego said confidently again.

    “Hmmmmmm! That child is evil, what does she want from her poor parents? Nne, this is unusual. When she was about dying the last time, Oshimiri the medicine man advised a mark be given to her with a hot knife and that was done. To everyone’s dismay, she returned with same mark very fresh. The wound was still looking so fresh, her parents had to treat the wound before it was healed”. Obidiya added.

    ” The whole thing is so strange Obidiya, very strange. I learnt the parents had sent for Oshimiri the medicine man again”. Ego asked.

    “So I heard my sister, but what can Oshimiri do other than give her another mark? She had returned with three different marks given to her previously. But let’s see what Oshimiri will do differently this time.”. Obidiya said.

    Ola was helpful to people in the village, especially mothers who do not have children of their own. She helped them in fetching water from the stream and firewood from the bush. But each time she goes to the stream or bush, she doesn’t return as quickly as she should, she spends more time swimming or hunting grasscutters.

    Ola was fair, beautiful and has a skin that glows. Most people called her mmuo mmiri (One who came from the water), there was no one in the whole of Umunze that was as beautiful as Ola.

    DINTA’S HUT

    Dinta, meaning a hunter is Olamma’s father, who had done everything within his powers to see that Ola does not return to the family again. She had caused them more harm and pains.

    Oshimiri had arrived from his shrine and was performing some incantations.

    ” Oshimiri the wise one, please what can be done to make Ola calm? Her going and coming gives my wife and I trouble. Is there not a solution?”. He asked.

    Oshimiri threw some cowries on the ground and performed more incantations.

    “The gods are still silent Dinta, they are yet to speak”. He replied.

    ” Why are the gods silent?”. A troubled Dinta asked.

    “The ways of the gods cannot be questioned Dinta, they will speak at the appropriate time. All we have to do is give her another mark”. He said.

    ” Another mark?”. Queried Dinta.

    “Yes, another mark. It was through marks that children like her were stopped from returning in time past, I do not know why she has remained stubborn. But I’m sure this time, she won’t return again”. Oshimiri said.

    Dinta agreed to his suggestion and another mark was given to her, this time a straight mark on her forehead. After the mark, Oshimiri performed more rituals and left.

    Two days later, Olamma died and was buried. Three months after her burial, Uloma, her mother went into labour.

    Dinta agreed to his suggestion and another mark was given to her, this time a straight mark on her forehead. After the mark, Oshimiri performed more rituals and left.

    Two days later, Olamma died and was buried. Three months after her burial, Uloma, her mother went into labour.

    Uloma delivered a beautiful baby girl, more pretty than Olamma, but still came out with all the marks given to Olamma before she died and in her previous comings. The mother, the women that delivered her of the child were all astonished, Olamma had returned again most of them exclaimed.

    Dinta, Uloma’s husband was outside waiting eagerly for the news of another child, possibly a male child. One of the women went outside to give him the news of Olamma’s arrival, this is the 5th time she is returning to the family.

    “Nna anyi, she has delivered a beautiful girl”. She said

    Dinta’s mood changed, he had expected to hear the news of a boy.

    ” Did she return with the marks?”. He asked anxiously.

    “I’m afraid nna anyi, yes, Ola has returned again. She came back with all the marks given to her, even the last one on her forehead “. She said and left.

    ” Not again, what have I done to deserve this evil child? Why are the gods punishing me in this manner? Same evil child again, the gods forbid, I won’t accept her”. He said, took his cutlass and hunting gun and left for hunting.

    “Where is my husband?”. A weak Uloma asked.

    ” I left him outside, I had just informed him of the arrival of the child. But he showed no excitement when I told him it was a girl”. Responded Ure, the woman that gave Dinta the news of the baby’s arrival.

    “Where is my child?”. She asked

    One of the women handed of the baby to her, Uloma looked at her with a smile and kissed her forehead.

    ” You returned again Ola, you should have given a little time for me to have other children before returning. I can’t stop you from coming back to us. Have you come back this time to stay or return after seven years as usual? The pains it’s causing me are much, I am the one carrying you for nine months and the pains of labour are too much. Why do you derive pleasure in punishing me Ola?”. She asked crying, then the child smiled at her and slept off.

    ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
    FOREST

    Dinta sat under a tree, thinking and asking rhetorical questions to himself.

    “If there was any offense committed by my fathers that I know nothing about, would Oshimiri not have told me? He is the eyes of the gods and should be able to have something to say. Why have the gods decided to visit me with pains? I have not done any evil to deserve this evil child, this time, she will get the treatment she deserves from me”. He said in anger and leaned on the tree to rest. His eyes were closed, lost in deep thought as he ruminated over everything.
    He slept off while thinking, then he heard a baby’s voice calling his name.

    ” Dinta, Dinta, Dinta”. He jerked up and quickly made for his gun.

    “If I had wanted to kill you, I would have done that long before now. You must accept my return back to your family, you have no choice. Every family has a price to pay for sins they committed directly or indirectly, yours will not be an exception. Treat me well, take whatever evil you habour against me from your heart. I have returned and must be given the name Olamma, how I cherish that name. Treat me well, pamper me and do not invite Oshimiri to treat me whenever I’m sick, I shall choose whether to return again or not”. The voice echoed

    “You evil child, go somewhere else and leave my wife and I alone. We are peace loving people and do not deserve the punishment you are metting out on us. Go away, leave our lives alone, we don’t want you Ola, you are evil. Whatever sins committed in the past I know nothing about, leave my life alone”. Dinta replied in a loud voice.

    “I should have killed you, but I won’t. I spoke to you calmly like a father, but you chose to toe the path of violence, we shall see”. The voice sounded again and vanished.

    “Go, evil child. I do not want to have anything to do with you. Leave me alone”. He said again in a loud voice.

    He quickly took his gun and cutlass and left for the hill of Agbalanze, the hill of Agbalanze is where the most powerful medicine man resides. Not everyone visits Agbalanze, you must be brave before you could see Agbalanze.

    ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
    THE HILL OF AGBALANZE
    ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
    “Stand still”. A voice sounded. “This is the hill of Agbalanze, what brings you here Dinta from Umunze”.

    “I am glad you know my name and where I come from, I am here to see Agbalanze the great. A child has been troubling my family”. He responded.

    “A child you said?”. Asked the voice as he chuckles. “Wait, while I consult Agbalanze”. The voice said again and a dwarf appeared afterwards and walked into a cave beneath the hill of Agbalanze. Dinta tried to be brave, the sight of the hill was fearful.

    After a while, the dwarf returned and led Dinta into the cave. It takes only the strong to withstand the sight of the cave, Agbalanze is no ordinary creature.

    ” You are here because of Olamma the reincarnating child”. Agblanze’s voice sounded from a burning fire.

    “Yes great one”. Dinta said trembling.

    “Be still Dinta, no one comes to Agbalanze trembling. The child Olamma is not evil, but powerful. She only seeks one thing”. Agbalanze said again.

    “What does she seek great one”. Asked Dinta.

    “That I cannot tell, but go and return again in seven days, you shall be told what to do”. He said and vanished with the fire, then the dwarf led Dinta out of the cave.

    Dinta got home worried and could not sleep all night, his wife was in her hut deeply asleep with the child. Then Ola, a child of some days old crawled to Dinta in his hut, he was shocked at what he saw.

    “Why did you go to see Agbalanze?”. She asked.

    TO BE CONTINUED ON MONDAY.
