Loud and deafening thunder roared about the sky.

Lighting struck about, creating fear for the villagers.

A bright lighting bounced down, and strick the heap of sand covering Joanna’s body.

The ground was uprooted and Joanna was lifted out from the hole,and placed on the ground.

Joanna’s eyes opened, flashing with blue light. Her hair,body and clothes were full of sand.

In one swift movement she sat up, looking around.

It was dark, totally dark as lighting continued to spark all about the dark sky.

When she stood up, powers locking back into her body..she became as scared as ever.

She had just been brought back to life.

Dusting herself,she walked away quickly, looking right and left.

“This way!” A sharp voice said in her head, indicating the left side of the road to her.

Joanna gasped as she closed her eyes, seeing the leading arrow as they led her through a narrow road.

Feeling brave and courageous,she followed.

The arrow stopped and turned the right side of the road.

Joanna looked around the dark place and followed again.

She got in front of a bungalow building and stopped.

Just then,the man she had earlier saved, came out from the door, beckoning to her to come.

Joanna walked to him, confused. What contact does she have with this man?

“Welcome. I thank God for directing you here. Come in, please.” The .an said and without any questions,she followed him inside.

She had no where else to go anyways. Why should she be scared.

“My name is Amos. A pastor sent to this village to stop the sacrilege and great sins they are committing against God the Almighty.

I came here alone but God told me I wasn’t going to accomplish this alone.

He told me I’m not alone in this battle that
he is going to send me an helper which is you because you came exactly the time God said you were going to come.”

Amos said and Joanna looked at him, wondering what God would want her to do with her powers.

“I… don’t really get you. What powers.. how can I be of help?” Joanna asked.

Amos laughed.

“You are so ignorant of the type of power you possess.
You are doubting the things… mighty things your powers can do.

I’ve seen them all and know you even before I saw you for God showed you to me.” Amos said.

“What exactly is going on in this village?” Joanna asked, realisation gradually dawning on her.

“You were buried alive,right? But you used your powers from God’s thunder to come out.

Do you think it was an easy thing?

It was a miracle and by the time the villagers still see you tomorrow,they will run away.. thinking you are a ghost.

They bury people alive,both young and old for every little crime and they also kill twins too.

Any twins who is born into this land or any twins who steps his or her feet to this land is either buried or thrown into the evil forest to die.”

Amos said and Joanna stared at him amazed.

“We have to stop it!” Joanna said,her voice laced with rage.

“Yes and we are starting right away. And more thing for you…use your powers for good things not the other way round. Don’t use it negatively.”

Amos said and Joanna slowly nodded.

She was full of anger..how could they! Killing innocent human beings all because that are twins!

What type of a rule is that? Joanna could barely wait for tomorrow….she could barely wait to deal with them!


Mama layed on the bed, barely are to move as someone cane in, bringing her a cup of water.

“Ijeoma…I told you not to worry about the water. I’m ok.” Mama said, coughing.

Ijeoma dropped the water on the chair beside Mama’s bed, smiling.

“But mama…you were coughing..you even coughed now so you need water.” Ijeoma said, pulling Mana to sit up while she gave her the water.

Mana layed down back.

“Mama, don’t worry. Vera is bringing you your medicine very soon. I wonder where this girl went to buy this thing self.” Ijeoma complained and just then,the door opened as a girl comes in, looking annoyed.

“What’s your problem? Where did you go to since!,
Don’t you know mama is sick and needs it urgently?’ Ijeoma asked furiously as Vera turned to look at her, frowning deeply.

“Do you think I care,mom? Look…I’m just tired of village life. Let’s go back to the city where we had it all Rosy. What do you even see here!”

“It seems you don’t understand the situation at hand.

You father has abandoned us after he heard about all I’ve done! We have nothing and we can’t go anywhere for mama is sick!

Did I not tell you she’s also your grandmother?
She’s the mother inlaw to my twin sister. Why can’t you understand!'” Ijeoma shouted at her daughter.

“Well…I’m tired of understanding! I just wanted to to get out of here!” Vera said and stormed out.

Ijeoma burst into tears as mama tried to console her.”Oh God! What have I done to myself?” Ijeoma cried.

“It’s okay,my daughter. She will understand better soon enough. She’s still a child.”

Mama said and Ijeoma nodded, wishing it was going to be true.

Just then,a loud knock sounded at the door and Ijeoma cleaned her tears going out of the room.

Immediately she opened the door,fear gripped her.

Before her were three guards from the palace. Serious fear gripped her. Have they come for her?

“Wwhat do you want?” Ijeoma stammered.

“We have been ordered to bring you to the palace right away.”

One of the guards said and Ijeoma exclaimed silently. Finally, they’ve found out her true identity. She was a twin.

*Please…I’m begging you in the name of God, don’t take me away! Mama needs me here!”

Ijeoma pleaded but instead,they dragged get out of the house, straight to the palace.


“You dare hide in our village! A twin? Did you not know it was a crime in this land?

I was surprised when they said Ifeoma was back from the grave.

I knew it was impossible and now the difference is clear.

You are her twin sister!” Uganga said and the people chorused yes!

The king rose up from his thrown, ready to give out his judgement.

“Fir this great sacrilege that you’ve committed….you are hereby, going to be buried…and buried alive!”

The villagers shouted, causing pandemonium.

Ijeoma was shocked. Buried alive? She?

God,was this the payment for her sins? For all the bad thing she had done?

Closing her eyes,a flood of tears circled her face.

She wished she could have a little chance to see Vera her daughter and advise her to live a good life free of evil.

But it was too late…too late for her.

Just as the guards grabbed Ijeoma, Joanna and Amos arrived.

The villagers screamed on seeing Joanna and took to their heels.

Even Uganga, he could bit believe his eyes. The guards all moved back. They thought her ghost had come back to kill them.

When they saw Amos,place his hand on her shoulder,they knew she wasn’t dead but how! They were sure she was covered up with sand.

“Don’t be afraid,all of you here and I won’t blame you for anything happening in this kingdom
because all you follow the tradition of your ancestors because there is no true God in this village!”

Joanna said and the villagers began to murmur.

“Keep quiet,before I strick your mouth with leprosy!” Uganga roared.” Guards! Take this woman to her burial sight!”

As soon as the guards moved, Joanna walked and stood in front of Ijeoma.

“Dare it…try it and see what happens to you.” Joanna said, her hands knotting into a tight fists.

Ijeoma looked up at Joanna’s back, wondering where the brave little girl came from.

What an helper..what a savior..what an Angel!

Ijeoma thought happily then her eyes dropped on something behind her ear.

A black mark.. thick black mark.

Ijeoma gasped,her teary eyes growing wide at what she was seeing.

The black mark…. fifteen years ago…no…no…it can’t be her…it can’t be possible!!

But then…it wasn’t possible too that someone could have that same mark…the exact place…the exact size and length!

No….it can’t be her…it can’t………


What’s happening and why is Ijeoma being conscious of the black mark beneath Joanna’s ear?

Why did she recognized it??

Is Joanna,with the help of Amos going to save Ijeoma and the blinded villagers??
