THE TROUBLESOME SPIRIT (Episode 10)

I couldn't believe my eyes.I couldn't believe it was Nmeka sitting on my bed.Out of fear,I
opened my mouth to scream but couldn't produce any sound.What could have happened to my voice.I made to open the door which i was
leaning on,inorder to run away but it refused
opening.


I fell to the ground with a mighty
thud.My heart was beating very fast.

Nmeka laughed and laughed and laughed again.I stood up,leaning my back tightly against the
door.I wished i could disappear through it at that point in time.

"Nmeka please don't kill me please,please o,i am
sorry please"I managed to speak at last.

She laughed again and stood up,coming towards me.I almost fainted.I was panting furiously.I
wished the ground can open up and swallow
me.As she came closest to me,i closed my eyes.

"Open your eyes!"she commanded.Her voice at
this time was filled with anger and rage.
I opened my eyes helplessly.i made to say something but she shouted at me to keep quiet.
"Jude,since i died my spirit has been restless.You must go and tell my parents what
happened to me.Secondly,you must go to the police and find out where they kept my body.I
can not be burried in another man's land.I must be burried in my father's compound.Do these and you will live.OR i will kill you after making you confess publicly''Nmeka demanded.

I opened my mouth in a gape.how can i do these
things she commanded me to do.She further told me to go to her school and ask about her room- mate,that she will help me locate her
parents.She told me that i had 3 days to do all she has said or i will die.She dissappeared.I
opened the door,this time,it yielded.I came out of
my room sweating profusely and panting like one who ran a race.It dawned on me that i was in a very big trouble.oh 2go has dealt with me.Why
are all these happening to me why me.I cried.I really cried.

Two known cultists who lived in my lodge were finally arrested by the police that fateful day,
leaving me very surprised. I couldn’t imagine
what the police had on them.

That very night,i couldn't sleep.I kept hearing Nmeka's voice over and over again.If i closed my
eyes,it was here image i would see

Very early the next day,i packed few of my clothes in a little bag and headed to Nmeka's
school to find her room mate.I had to do what she said inorder to live.I am the only child of my
parents.

While all these were going on,i hid them from my
parents.
I got to her school that morning and saw her
room mate locking the door,with a little travelling bag by her side.it seems she was about
travelling.
She didnt recognise me because the day i visited
it was almost dark.I told her i am Nmeka's friend.She looked at me with suspicious
eyes."where is she,she has been missing.have you seen her?"She went on asking questions.I
rather told her''i want to see her parents,can you be of help?''

She replied that she was going to the village to settle things with Nmeka's parents.She told me that Nmeka's parents accused her of knowing
what happened to their daughter since they lived in the same room.I pitied the poor girl.
I was relieved that at last i would see her parents.But i never knew what awaited me
