The devil in my home
A story written by Chichi Tonia
“Nurse! How is my son doing? Favour asked immediately one of the nurse came out of the emergency room
“Calm down madam, I will explain to you ” the nurse said to favour who was already panicking
“No no…. Explain to me now, how is my son? Favour asked again in anxiety and the nurse sighed
“Please nurse talk to us, how’s our son? Nathan also asked panting
“Am sorry to tell you this, but we lost hi…….. “The nurse haven’t finish her statement before favour screamed and fell on the ground rolling herself
“Please nurse tell me you are joking” Nathan said in disbelief
“Am sorry, but that is the truth, your son is dead, we did everything to save him, but he eventually died, it seems something bite him on his neck, which affected the intestine that connected on his throat “the nurse explained and Nathan was confused
“Wait! You mean to say something bite him on his neck? Nathan asked confusedly
“Yes! And it was the bite that lead to his death “the nurse said and that was when Nathan knew that something is definitely wrong somewhere, After everything, Nathan and favour mourned for their son Bobo and buried him, after they buried him, Nathan called his other children and asked them if they know what happened to their brother Bobo, but they said that they don’t know what happened to him, that they were in a deep sleep when it happened, Nathan even called Kelvin and also asked him the same question but Kelvin said that he don’t know what happened to Bobo, that he was in his room sleeping when all that occurred.
?Some days later ?
Favour was at home still mourning for her son, even people were there consoling her
“Who did I offend that is after my children’s lives, and am a simple person going on my own, I know I never wronged anyone, first it was Cynthia my daughter and now is my son Bobo, they should have just killed me, instead of harming this innocent children and now am left with only three kids “favour lamented while the people were consoling her
“My sister! Please take heart, we understand how you feel for losing your children, but come to think of it this is strange, how can something bite a child on the neck in their room which led to his death, this is totally strange “Gladys their neighbor said
“Very strange, but to me I think something is wrong in this house “Patricia their Church member who came said
“Do you think so? Favour asked Patricia
“Yes! I think something is wrong in this house, I have the feeling, but are you praying with your family? Patricia asked
“Yes! I do pray with my family every morning and night “favour replied
“Which means the forces are very strong, but have you called our pastor ? Patricia asked again
“I haven’t called him but he’s aware of all this things happening “favour said with tears dropping from her eyes
“My sister! You need to call him right now and tell him to come and pray for your home, this house really need a man of God that will pray for it “Patricia said and Gladys nodded in agreement, so favour took her phone and called her pastor, she pleaded for him to come and pray for her home and the pastor assured her that he will come the next day. Meanwhile Kelvin was in the school writing, when he began to hear favour’s conversation with the pastor with his spiritual ear.
