She had narrated the dream she had to her husband immediately she had woken up. He quickly dialled Ndubuisi’s number as soon as she was done with her narration.
Ndubuisi: “Big brother! This one you remember us today” he hailed happily.
Tunde: “My dear, busy schedule don’t even let me remember myself. How are you?”
Ndubuisi: “Just hanging on” he replied sadly.
Tunde: “You should be doing better than just hanging on. My wife had a terrible dream last night and we have to do something about it. Can you and your wife take the first flight down there today? We will meet you there or you meet us there but it is imperative we all meet there today. How possible can that be?”
Ndubuisi: “We were planning to go to the village but not today. I still have to get my leave approved by my boss”
Tunde: “You don’t need no paying job Ndu. You are a boss yourself and your place is at your hospital. God will establish you from there if not, you will continue to work for others and forget yourself doing so. Get down to the village today, its just 5a.m. you can still meet the 8a.m flight. My wife is getting ready already. This has more to do with you and your wife. You both need redemption”
Somehow, he felt happy about what Tunde had said about his job for he had missed his hospital so much and always worried about how John was running it. As soon as he had ended the call, a knock sounded on their door and he went to open it. It was Angelica with a box that could accommodate all the belongings he had ever owned in his life.
Ndubuisi: “What are you doing here by this time?” he asked, eyeing her and the bag.
Angelica: “I have packed in to my husband’s house of course or don’t you have eyes?” she said and pushed her way in. Odinaka was already awake and in the bathroom.
Ndubuisi: “Really? You are welcome ehn? How is the baby doing?” he asked smiling.
Angelica: “The baby is fine darling” she was extremely happy at the change she thought she had seen in him and sat on the bed comfortably.
Ndubuisi: “Honey, she has packed in. My second wife is here at last. Please help m to welcome her” he said, gesturing to her with his eyes to act calm”
Odinaka: “Oh yeah! You are welcome” she turned to her husband and asked him in the Nsukka dialect “what is going on here?”
Ndubuisi: “Dont mind the idiot. We are going to the village this morning and I am going to tell papa Michael to lock the door once we have left. She will go back to wherever she is coming from disgracefully. Just leave her” he replied in the same dialect, smiling as if they were saying something good about her indeed.
Odinaka: “Ehya! That is good to know. Angelica dear, welcome jare, what do I prepare for you?” she switched to English while Angelica giggled a jiggled like one who had just won an American visa.
Angelica: “You can’t be preparing food for me now. I will prepare it for you and our husband, don’t worry” she stood up and quickly rushed to the kitchen, thinking of how she will have him all to herself already.
Ndubuisi: “ehn ehn lest I forget, I and your senior wife will be going to the village this morning so you have to take care of the house” he announced and dropped a fake key for her. “That is the key to the house, always lock the door when you are going out, there are thieves around”
Angelica: “Awwwww ehya, I will miss you guys, hope you will not stay too long?” she feigned sadness meanwhile she was thinking of how many of her boyfriends she was going to bring into the house to make good love to her in their absence. She was beyond herself with joy.
1st Witch: “We cannot mention their names. It i against our code of conduct but just know they are here among you” she they began to get suffocated. It was like the air around had vapourized and nothing was left for them to breathe in. As they were taking their last breath, Pamela and her husband arrived to the consternation of all present. It felt like Heaven had decided to bring them back at the right time.
Few minutes later, Ndubuisi and Odinaka also arrived, wondering what was happening at their compound. At this time, Tunde and Pamela had gone inside the sitting room and had begun to pray. Their mum like a flash of lightening ran inside. The crowd began to disperse, thinking that was all there was to it. Some youths had been made to carry the corpses of the three women to the village square to serve as deterrent to any other person who wants to involve in witchcraft.
Pamela’s Mum: “Yes yes yes I will confess but please stop the prayers, it is tormenting me” she cried, her children exchanged surprised looks. Ndubuisi and Odinaka had joined in the prayers too after they had bound any demon that might want to manifest through her to disrupt their prayers.
Pamela: “What are you confessing to mum?”
Pamela’s Mum: “Please forgive me. When Odinaka’s ordeal started, I had gone to your aunty seeking for solutions not knowing she was a witch…” she narrated her ordeal in the hands of the coven and how they had made her aid mama Ikenna in poisoning Dennis. She told them how they had gone the night before to kill him in the hospital an how Amaka was also in danger of death that same night.
Odinaka: “Mama ah!”
Amaka: “Mama but why?” they were all dumfounded but could only exclaim.
Pamela’s Mum: “I am sorry my children. They threatened to kill Amaka and Odinaka if I didn’t comply with them. I am really sorry, Pamela please pray for me. I will serve God now with the whole of my heart. I will no longer run to any man for solutions to my problem but run to God in prayers. Just teach me how you do it and I promise to be strong from now on” she wept bitterly.
Tunde: “The devil has been shamed. We have no option but to forgive her. Who are we to judge another who is even ready to commit to God? She was just being a mother but you young mothers in this sitting room should also learn. Amaka I can see your stomach and I know what that means so you are included too. Mothers should be strong for no one can stand in the gap for their children as much as mothers can. That you are a Christian does not mean challenges will not come, it will come but you will have to continue fixing your eyes on Christ and not running helter-skelter. If not for how strong in faith your sister is, she would have lost like two of her children already, the stuffs she overcame in the past would have come back to haunt her again but because she remained strong spiritually, she was able to foil all of their plans.
Odinaka, learn from your sister, Ndubuisi give your life to Christ and let God use you to bring salvation to your family especially your dad except you liked what you and your wife went through in their hands?”
Ndubuisi: “Not at all brother in law. I am ready” he knelt down while his wife and Amaka followed suit. Their mother was already on her knees. Pamela wept tear of joy as her family rededicated their lives to Christ while Ndubuisi gave his to Him.
They resumed with the prayers and just then, aunty Martha appeared from nowhere carrying a huge calabash and weeping.
Aunty Martha: “Yes I did trap Odinaka’s spirit here. I turned to her after I was unable to get to Pamela who I felt betrayed me. I am under torment right now, I am sorry for all I have done” she snivelled.
Pamela: “Now you are going to break the calabash in Jesus name”
She lifted it up and crashed it to the floor. A black cobra reared its head but was soon burn to ashes right in their presence while Aunty Martha seemed to have melted with it. They had tried to make her confess Jesus as her Lord but it had been too late.
John: “I am sorry guy” he apologised.
Ndubuisi: “You dared rape my sister inlaw after I gave you a job to better your life?” he suddenly flew into a rage, took some steps towards John and punched him in the face and any other place he could get his fists on. “How can you be so depraved as to do that to such a littlegirl?”
Odinaka: “Honey its okay. He seems to be a changed person now.
Ndubuisi: “I am sorry dear, I made a bad choice”
Odinaka: “No you didn’t. You helped a helpless person and that counts. We shall forgive him and we all shall work together in the hospital, no need sending him away, we need him here”
John: “Oh thank you sister-in-law. Thank you very much. I promise never to hurt your sister again. I will be there for her every minute of the day” he said in appreciation.
Few days later, it was gathered that mama Ikenna had died in her sleep after she had locked herself up in the house for days with no one knowing her whereabouts. Young men had to break her door to discover her lying lifeless on her bed, clutching a bible to her chest. Where she had gotten it from, no one knew.
Together, the family triumphed over evil and continued to wax stronger through prayer. Odinaka later completed her housemanship at Unilorin Teaching Hospital where she also gave birth to a baby boy. She later returned to the village to help at the hospital. And so at last, everything worked together for good for them all.
NB: Please note that ‘The Curse of Ndishi Part 2 has nothing to do with the Enugu Ezike People’s Ndishi. Ndishi did not manifest here since no one committed adultery. If you want to know about Ndishi, then that will be in part 1- Pamela’s story and yeah, Ndishi is very real.
I am sure the message I want to pass across is already embedded in the story but one last word, don’t ever slacken in prayer for the devil roams about seeking whom to destroy. You might think you have offended no one meanwhile someone is holding untold grudge against you. Always pray whether you are a Christian or a Muslim. Thanks for reading and I’d be reading your comments as you share your thoughts on the story and other lessons you might have learnt at the comment section.
