THE RETURN OF THE LOVE HUNTERS
(Battle of love)
A STORY WRITTEN BY BRIGHT DANIEL
The hunter pursued Emylight but returned back when he couldn’t break the door. Meanwhile, Emylight was behind the door breathing heavily. When he didn’t hear the banging of the hunter on the door anymore, he slowly opened it. He quickly went back to the stick and picked it up. “Chei…!!” he exclaimed with a hand on his waist. “So, this thing works. The gods of our land really saved me from this hunter that’s why he ran away. Chei…!! Odegwo! Odegwu!” he began to dance in circle again taking a step at a time. But he suddenly stopped looking worried. “If this thing really worked, then why am i still having the deadly mark? No! It must go! I must not die! Who am i to question the power of the gods. Chei..!” he positioned the stick upward looking up too. “Okirikiri ka ana agba ukwu ose anayi ari ya elu! Odegwu!” he began to dance again.
Back to the lonely road where Hector and the hunter were ready to fight, Cassandra adjusted the head-light of the car to take a proper vision of the hunter before her. When the hunter saw them, he turned moving boldly towards them.
“Where are you going to?!” Hector shouted following him too.
“Who de fuck is that?!” Cassandra slowed down the car.
“Is a hunter! Go back!” Jackson exclaimed then Cassandra put the gear in reverse immediately.
“Do you know how to shoot?!” she brought out a gun.
“Are you kidding me?!” Jackson flung the gun from her, he brought out his head through the front door and began to shoot the hunter. Suddenly, the gun vanished from his hand-that was the hunter in a high speed. He took the gun and dragged Jackson and Cassandra out of the car without noticing the presence of the book. He held both of them on the throat and jacked them up in a way their legs left the ground. “Well, well, well” the hunter began looking at their faces. “The little witch and her pet! Now where is the book?!” he asked.
“Fuck you!” Cassandra shouted and spat on the hunter’s face. Then Hector narrowed his vision.
“Cassandra?” he called and sped off immediately. He gave the hunter a powerful punch which flung him to a far distance making Cassandra and Jackson to fall on the ground. Hector sped off again, he grabbed the hunter up with one hand in a way his ugly legs left the ground, tore his cloth with the other hand and began to give him several powerful punch on his stomach to the extent the stomach busted open. One could see black blood and his intestine coming out, yet, the hunter didn’t die then Hector threw him off. He sped off to Cassandra’s car and came back instantly with a gun. “Now, who is more powerful, ugly dick?” he aimed his head and piecesed it with several bullets. The hunter died. Hector returned back to the car, he saw Jackson standing close to Cassandra.
“What’s this boy doing here?” he asked.
“Nice rescue, Hector” Cassandra neglected his question. She patted him on the cheek and entered into the car.
“Nice rescue, bro” Jackson also said as he entered the car too.
“What?!” Hector became woozy staring at them as they drove off. “But that doesn’t answer my question!” he shouted in a loud voice. Just then, Grace woke up and staggered to the middle of the road. She looked round to see nothing but dark bushes. “Where am i?” she murmured. “Somebody help me!” she shouted.
“Grace?” Hector remembered her and sped off to her. “Is okay, baby, I’m here” he hugged her.
“Hector!” Grace reciprocated but suddenly pushed him off.
“Hey, what’s the problem? I just saved your life!”
“Don’t you dare come close to me!” Grace began to walk on the lonely road.
“Why? And where do you know you are going to?!”
“Is none of your business!” Grace kept walking. But she finally stopped and went back to Hector looking at him without saying a word. Hector didn’t say anything too. “Well..?” he stretched out his hands.
“Well, won’t you take me home?!” Grace exclaimed then Hector exhaled deeply with a smile. He carried her and sped off.
Geto remained indoors with his grandmother. He sat quietly on a cushion wishing for the curse to be broken because he was dying gradually. He managed to bring out his phone then began to text Jesse.
Jesse stood beside the window also wanting to call Geto, but a message came in then she opened it and read thus: I’M READY TO DIE KNOWING THAT I LOVE YOU SO MUCH..
Jesse was confused, so she called Geto immediately. “Geto?” she called on the phone. “Why are you talking about death?”
“Because i have the mark”
“Oh my God!” Jesse shouted with her hand on her mouth. “No, no, Geto you aren’t going to die” tears ran out from her eyes.
It touched Geto too, so he also began to shed tears. “Pls, don’t cry” he concluded.
As the war went on, Cassandra and Jackson got to their first destination. She came out with the book standing at the beginning of a narrow dark road. Jackson became scared standing beside her.
“What now?” he asked
“We follow the darkness” Casandra replied..
