Tears apart episode 12
” I dare you! To come close.” Joanna threatened, oblivious of the shoocked expression on Ijeoma’s face.
Uganga burst out laughing.”Look at this one o.
Look at this little imp! Little baby! Trying to fight the gods of our land! The powerful one and only okaka Ani!!
Get off from there right now or I will be forced to strangle you with my bare hands!” Uganga shouted and Joanna smiled.
“Really? Little imp? Little baby? Little baby who’s able to come back to life after being buried alive?
Villagers! My people! Doesn’t this tell you something?
Isn’t this a greater power that you’ve ever witnessed!” Joanna asked her voice very loud and courageous.
The people began to nod, asking their selves a lot of questions.
They began to murmur and Uganga was getting angrier.
“Okay! Since you have refused to cut your coat according to your little size…I will deal with you!
I will show you that my powers are greater!”Uganga roared and pinned his stick full of cowries in the ground.
He began chanting some inaudible words running around.
Joanna only stared at him, laughing in her mind.
She looked over at Amos who grabbed his Bible, speaking in tongues.
Uganga stopped abruptly and blew a white substance across to Joanna who Immediately dodged it.
She bounced back on her feet, closing her eyes and gathering her own powers.
Her eyes opened and blue light sparked out .
The villagers screamed and scattered.
This time, Joanna was able to control the blue light from bursting into flames. Uganga felt Sparks of light as Joanna’s eyes jammed with his.
He roared staggering around. He dipped his hand into his animal skin bag and brought out a black bottle.
He smashed it in the ground and everywhere began to vibrate and shake.
Even the king and his cabinet ran back into the palace.
Joanna and Amos stood firmly on the ground.
Ijeoma was rolling on the dusty floor, screaming. The ground continued to shake.
“I will deal with you today! You must fall!” Uganga roared.
Joanna laughed out loud and went down in her knees, touching the ground softly.
Immediately,the ground became still. Uganga was shoocked. He expected them to fall.
He expected them to surrender.
He brought out another bottle and smashed it on the ground but nothing happened.
He was perplexed.
“What! How dare you!, How dare you stop my powers from working?!” Uganga roared and Amos moved forward smiling.
He lifted up his Bible, showing it to him.
“Do you believe in this? It’s greater than the greatest more than your useless powers!” Amos boasted and Uganga felt like going crazy.
“Wait for me!, Wait for me,I’m coming!, I’m coming with more powers..to finish you!!” Uganga said and took off, running straight to the shrine.
“When he comes back…we are going to cast him to death this time around and bind all his powers.”
Amos said as Joanna nodded, feeling like an hero. She just saved a life!
“Excuse…me…who are you?”
Joanna looked back at the sudden voice.
Immediately Joanna set eyes on Ijeoma,the unseen wave came again.
This time,more harder.
“Aaah!” Joanna sighed almost falling as she held her head with one hand.
She swayed against Amos who quickly caught her against him.
“What’s it! What happened?” Amos queried.
Joanna looked at Ijeoma, confused and trying to remember where she had seen her before.
“Have….we met before?” Joanna asked.
Ijeoma was so scared she could not move nor take her eyes off Joanna.
How can this be possible?
If she was truly the child she sold off to madam Kofta…..then how could she have recognized her.
Ijeoma was shivering. She could not say anything…not after seeing the powers the little girl just displayed.
“Do you know her somewhere?”Amos asked.
Joanna was still staring at Ijeoma. She looked straight into her eyes and saw the vision again…of a woman,
carrying a little baby away while a ghost watched.
The confusing thing was that,this same woman here was carrying the same face with the ghost.
What was happening?
“Are… you….wait…you were going to be buried alive because you have a twin?’ Joanna asked and Ijeoma slowly nodded.
Slowly,the started to understand why she had the same face with the ghost but then,that also means that her twin was dead.
And why was she carrying the baby away while the ghost tried to take back what was hers which was the baby?
And who was the unconscious woman on the floor whom the baby was taken from?
So much mystery.
“You Know me, don’t you? Tell me!” Joanna said, going forward, towards Ijeoma who felt tears springing from her eyes.
“I…I….I… honestly…I… don’t.. know….” Ijeoma began to stammer but Joanna caught her short by raising a hand up.
“I’m sure she knows me. I saw her in my vision!” Joanna said, turning to look at a confused Amos.
“Joanna…you can’t be sure you know this woman. Let’s just go.
We need to show the villagers what the power of God can do.”
Amos said but Joanna still stared at Ijeoma who hide her face away.
Amos was dragging Joanna away, heading for the village square when a woman ran madly across then and rushed towards Ijeoma who was still sitting on the floor.
“Ijeoma,you are still here! Your daughter! Your daughter Vera has been possessed by a strange spirit who has made her almost naked at the village square. Infact,
as I speak to you now,your daughter is still rolling all over the dusty ground, screaming out her lungs!”
The woman shouted and Ijeoma jumped up with a loud scream.
Together with the woman,she ran as fast as her legs could carry her.
Amos looked at Joanna.” This is the chief priest’s doing.
And this is a good time to destroy all his powers and heal that girl.
This is the time for the villagers to see that the most high God lives up there in heaven!”Amos said as Joanna looked at him.
“We are going to do all what you said but we aren’t going to heal her daughter until she promises to tell me all what she knows about me.”
“But how sure are you that she knows you?” Amos asked.
“You are sounding as if you’ve forgotten what I’m capable of seeing.” Joanna said.
Amos shrugged as they walked away… going straight to the shrine.
Just as they suspected,the chief priest wasn’t in the shrine.
He had also gone to the village square to show off his false god by healing the possessed girl.
They got there and burnt down the shrine and everything on it.
They brought down the whole roof and the images, everything catching up in flames and burning to ashes.
As soon as everything got burnt…they took off.. running straight to the village square.
“Somebody please,help me! What’s wrong with my daughter? Help me!!” Ijeoma was crying as she watched her daughter,rolling on the floor and screaming like a lunatic, endlessly.
The entire villagers had gathered, watching watching what was happening.
No body even went Closer to both mother and daughter.
They gave them a good distance.
Uganga laughed, rounding Vera who was going crazy.
“I said it! I said it!, That this people preaching false god are going to bring disaster to this kingdom!
If you ever doubt…I mean if anyone of you ever doubt our Okaka Ani..this is what is going to happen to such person!”
“Tufiakwa!!” The villagers said in unison, snapping their fingers to the ground.
Just then, Joanna arrived with Amos.
The villagers looked disdainfully at them.
There was uproar among the villagers as they pointed accusing fingers on Joanna and Amos who looked amazed, wondering what the evil priest told them.
“If you know that your God…that that your God is truly alive up in the sky like you claimed,prove it now! Prove it now and cast this demon out of this girl!” Uganga said confidently, believing it was him and him alone that would be capable of doing such thing.
“YES!! YES!! PROVE IT!!”The villagers chanted.
Joanna and Amos looked at each other and looked at Vera who was almost naked.
“Don’t be afraid… Joanna. We can do this. Just… bring down the glory of God and together…we are going to win the villagers to Christ.”
Amos said and took Joanna’s hand. Together,they looked up to heaven.
Her blue eyes penetrated through the sky as tears welled up in her eyes.
The clouds began to roam… changing colours till everywhere became dark.
As soon as Amos began to speak in tongue….thunder began to sound…sound do loudly all over the sky………
But the more Joanna tried to close her eyes to bring down the glory of God…the more she saw this same woman… snatching her away and taking her away to a different world entirely.
“No! No!!” Joanna shouted, forcing her eyes open. She looked straight at Ijeoma who hide her face away,so scared of the blue light that burnt in Joanna’s eyes.
“Before I do this… before I do this..you must tell me why you kidnapped me… fifteen years ago…you must tell me who you are and why your twin….stood as a ghost trying to take me back. Who was your twin….was she my mother???………..
So many questions that needs urgent answers.
Ijeoma herself would be so confused but she’s going to be willing to say anything….to save her daughter!!👻👻
