” RECKLESS REKKY”
Rekky sat in her car really pissed at Martins.
“ Why would he be watching porn?” She questioned herself
“ Did you give him another option?” She replied herself
“ He should have learnt how to control himself!” She argued
“ Have you been controlling yourself?”
“ Whatever! It’s his business!” She concluded.
She engaged the gear into the drive mode and drove out of the compound. She and Osmond were going to the beach together and she was not going to allow Martins ruin it for her.
Martins stood by the window, watching Rekky disappear. He really loved Rekky but that love had been stabbed a million times over.
Chioma was the woman for him! He had lost the first opportunity he had with her. The Universe had given him the second chance with her. He was not going to lose it because of Rekky.
He picked up his phone and dialed Chioma’s line.
“ So what are you doing today?” He said
“ Today is Saturday! I stay at home”
“I am coming over!”
“ You don’t want me at your place!”
“ You are a married man Sir!” She said laughing
“ So a married man can not visit his female friend?”
“ His Single female friend who he may still have feelings for! No sir, I will pass on this one!”
“ I am on my way already!”
“ You don’t know my house!”
“ Really? And you believe that?”
“ Even if you know my house, I won’t give you the PIN to enter the estate!”
“ Ok, then I will stay at the gate till nightfall. Let’s see if you can be that wicked!” Martins hung up. He knew Chioma was living in one of the expensive estates in town. He didn’t know her house for certain but he was going to try his luck. All his flirting with her had always been at her office or restaurants.
He rushed off to bathroom.
Mayowa was deep in sleep. Mirabel kept watching her husband as the doctor stood close by.
Doctor Mike was a believer and as he stood close by, he was asking the Holy Spirit what was happening and what he ought to do. His excellence in medical practice could be largely attributed to his fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Whenever, he had a medical case, the HolySpirit would most times diagnose what exactly was wrong and What was the best prescription to give the patients.
“ Numbers 22:23” Doctor Mike heard the word in his Spirit….
He quickly checked his phone and it read…
“When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, it turned off the road into a field”
He ruminated over the words but he did not understand the message in there…
“ Holy Spirit! What are you saying?”
“ Why are you standing in the way of the man on a mission, don’t be the agent of the devil standing in the way. He is not mad, he has an assignment!”
“ Mayor! On assignment? He is not a born again Christian!”
“ He is now!”
“ Ok, What do I do?”
“ Nothing for now! The sedation will wear out in another one hour. while you wait for him to come around, preach to his wife.!”
“ Ok!” Doctor Mike said out loud, which made Mirabel give him a questioning look.
“ What? What is Ok?”
“ Your husband is Ok! “
“ How do you know that?”
“ God told me!”
Mirabel took a long pause!
“ You too… you are using this Spiritualism talk. Doctor Mike, I am not an atheist, I believe in God but I am not a religious person. My husband is probably under a lot of stress and needs serious medical help. Are you able to handle it or I call someone else?” Mirabel said bluntly.
“ How on earth am I suppose to preach to her now!” Doctor Mike thought.
“ God will help me handle it, no man can prevent a man from dying , only God. Remember, We care but God Heals.”
“ Ma, I believe your husband is fine, I believe something positively striking has happened to your husband, hence the sudden change.”
“ I think He met the Man I met 23 years ago!”
“ Which Man?”
“ The man that Saul met on the way to Damascus!”
“ You are not making sense sir!”
“ You see, I had studied too hard that I didn’t believe in a supreme being controlling the whole earth. I felt life was just actions and consequences which is absolutely the case, but I didn’t realize that there was a supreme being who could alter anything from going parallel, even the consequences of actions, until I met Him.”
Mirabel was looking blankly..
“ Hence, even when we have lived a seemingly terrible life and we ought to get the consequences of our past terrible actions, God can give us the chance to alter the consequences we get. “
“ Why are you saying all these?”
“ I am saying it is possible what your husband said is true and he actually met with Christ, who is trying to help him alter the consequences of his actions..”
“ Are you saying, Mayor could be a Ritualist?”
“ Yes, and who knows he may have encountered Christ .”
For the first time, Mirabel relaxed to think about the possibility of Mayor being a Ritualist and the pieces were coming together…
No friends! Minimal Family contact! Tall fence! Secret Workplace!
“ My God!” Mirabel crashed into the chair beside her…

“ But if half of what he told me is true, that means we are in trouble, he said he is a Ritualist…if he really kills people, then my son and I will bear the consequences of his bloodshed. We have been spending the money from his bloodshed! I am finished!”
“ No, you are not finished, Jesus finished the work on the cross so you won’t be finished. For you not to be finished, you can rush and hide under the tent of Him that can save you!”
“ How can Jesus save me from the consequences of the sin of my husband?”
“ Ma, if you give your life to Christ sincerely and Walk with him, neither you nor your son will beat the consequences of your husband’s bloodshed!”
“ How do you know that?”
“ My father was a terrible herbalist who pounded new born babies as part of his charm. This was his secret ingredient that made him the most powerful herbalist in over seven villages. Kings of different Villages came to my father for charms. He was that powerful. My father was always buying slaves and impregnating them. It was the children of the slaves that he used for his charms. He never used the children of his wives.
As years passed, and we the children got to marriageable years, everyone of us started getting married but there was a big problem. None of us had our own offsprings. My father tried everything possible but 7 of us didn’t have children.
As a medical doctor, I tried everything possible. My wife did IVF 14 times and it all failed…
“ 14 times?”
“ Yes, like I told you… I had read hard and wide, so I wanted to proof to myself, life was not as hard as people were painting it to be . It was after the 14th IVF, Christ met me. He met me on my knees, where I broke down in tears. I spoke to the creator of the universe and surprisingly he took me on a journey!”
“ What journey?”
“ As I laid on the floor weeping. I saw a man walk into my room. He stretched his hand to me. He told me to walk with him. I did and instantly I found myself in my hometown in my Father’s shrine. I saw my father’s mortar he used in pounding the babies.”
“ What are we doing here?”
I saw three of my Father’s slave girls walking into my Father’s shrine.
“ Ada, this is the evil mortal he uses to pound our babies!” Soma said
“ Yet, he keeps his own children …”
“ What should we do to it ? Break it?” Soma asked the others
As the three lifted it, they noticed the mortar had no base…
They quickly dropped it…
“ It has no base!”
“ It means, it is a diabolical one. Breaking it is not what is important!”
“ What is?”
“ Let us pay him back in his own coin!”
“ Bring your hands!”
The three ladies joined their hands together…
“ Obi, you have been emptying our lives, therefore, just like this mortar has no base hence everything in it drops, your children’s bodies including the wives your sons marry, their bodies will never be able to retain babies! This curse shall stand because you have done evil to us.”
“ Ha! That was why the IVF was failing too?” Mirabel screamed
“ Yes! Can you see that I know so much about actions and consequences.”
“ You can say that again!but how where you able to escape? I know you have two daughters already.”
“Christ revealed to me that I could be separated from the consequences of my father’s sin by becoming the son of God.”
“I found that light in the Ezekiel 18! You can read it from your phone.” Doctor Mike said. He wanted Mirabel to read the words herself.
Mirabel nodded. She couldn’t remember the last time she had read the Bible. She was grateful for search engines. She quickly searched from one of the search engines…
“ Ezekiel 18 reads
The Lord spoke to me and said, “What is this proverb people keep repeating in the land of Israel?
‘The parents ate the sour grapes,
But the children got the sour taste.’
As surely as I am the living God,” says the Sovereign Lord, “you will not repeat this proverb in Israel any more. The life of every person belongs to me, the life of the parent as well as that of the child. The person who sins is the one who will die.
Suppose there is a truly good man, righteous and honest. He doesn’t worship the idols of the Israelites or eat the sacrifices offered at forbidden shrines. He doesn’t seduce another man’s wife or have intercourse with a woman during her period. He doesn’t cheat or rob anyone. He returns what a borrower gives him as security; he feeds the hungry and gives clothing to the naked. He doesn’t lend money for profit. He refuses to do evil and gives an honest decision in any dispute. Such a man obeys my commands and carefully keeps my laws. He is righteous, and he will live,” says the Sovereign Lord.”
“ I hope you understand what you just read?”
“ Not really?”
“ Well, this was my liberating word. I stood upon the word that if I decided to give God my life and follow God, I won’t have to bear the consequences of my father’s evil. And that was what happened…. Through connecting to God, I experienced his Mercy and among my siblings, I was the first to have kids, after me, other siblings started going with me to church and today they all have their children…”
“ In essence, if my son and I connect to Christ, we will not have to bear the consequences of Mayor’s bloodshed?” Mirabel realized
“ I am ready!”
“ Ok… You have to say this short prayer after me.”
“ Heavenly Father, I come before you, asking for your Mercy. I believe in your son Jesus Christ. I accept Him as my Lord and Personal Saviour. Help me to live a new life in Christ Jesus and Please cut me off the consequences of my past sins, inherited consequences of my parents’ sin including that of my spouse in Jesus name”
Mirabel said after him.
Doctor Mike was about giving thanks to God, when Mirabel threw a bombshell at him…
“ Thank you Doctor, but I have to leave you with him, I can’t stay with him any longer so I don’t bear the consequences of his evil. Apart from God helping me, I have to help myself.” Mirabel said
Doctor Mike became tongue tied as to what to say.

“ Don’t even try to stop me from leaving!” Mirabel said to Doctor Mike
“ Ma, our gospel does not teach us to encourage a woman to leave her Husband when he is in trouble especially if the husband is looking for a way out of his mess!”
“So you expect me to sit here and let the consequences of his evil deeds eat my son and I up?” Mirabel asked rolling her eyes
“ YES! though you won’t be sitting… instead you will stand by him as a big support for him. As he is trying to get out, you must stand by him.”
“ I am sorry… I can’t “ Mirabel concluded
Mayowa was struggling to wake up. He knew he had to wake up but the effect of the deep sedation was still lingering.
After about five minutes of his forceful opening of his eyes despite the involuntary shutting of his eyes, he asked the much anticipated question…
“ Where is my wife?” He directed his question at Doctor Mike.
“ Gone!” Doctor Mike replied
“ She said to an hotel… She needed time away from you!”
“ That’s absolutely fine!” Mayowa was happy she had left. Consequently, things were not going to happen the way they ought to happen. Meaning by the next day, he wasn’t going to lose Mirabel, she wasn’t going to be trailing him.
“ You are happy she is gone?”
“ It’s complicated Doctor. The farther she is from me, the safer she is.”
Mayowa rose up sharply but immediately he knew it was a wrong move as he swayed in the process…
“ Calm down MR Mayor!”
“ My name is Mayowa and I am not Mad!”
“ Sure I know you are not, but you can’t just jump and get on your feet after a deep sedation.”
“I have a lot to do in less than 24 hours!”
“ Ok! I volunteer to take you to wherever you need to go!”
“ I am fine!”
“ You cannot drive after sedation!”
“ Ok fine! You will drive me to my destination but you stay outside!”
“ No problem!” Doctor Mike replied
“Look me in the eye, and say to me that you don’t feel what I feel!” Martins said to Chioma out of the blues
Chioma had gone mute suddenly. They had been talking about some of their old friends. In between that beautiful conversation, Martins had blurted out the nonsense that just came out of his mouth.
It was wrong that she made him come into her house, and now he wanted to introduce emotional blackmail.
“ I cannot love you, because you are a married man!”
“ You can’t love me or You don’t love me! Which one?”
“ Same difference!
“ No… not the same thing… I know…” Martins was saying but Chioma was on her feet already
“ You need to be on your way.!”
“ I just got here!” Martins said
“ I am getting uncomfortable with the our conversation!”
“ I apologize!”
“ It’s no use!”
“ I actually need to meet up with someone!”
“ I know that’s a lie!”
“ No it’s not… Initially, I didn’t have anyone to catch up with, but your talk gave me reason to catch up with a friend!”
“ Ok!” Martins got up. He wished he could cut down Rekky’s head. She was the wall between he and Chioma. What made him more angry at his situation was the fact that Rekky was enjoying her life madly.
Martins got up and walked out of the house.
Mayor sat in the front seat of Doctor Mike. He didn’t know what he was going to say to the couple , but one thing was sure. He must ensure he convinced the wife from going out the next day.
“ Are you the address from your trance is real?” He asked himself
“ Or are you really running mad?” He questioned his sanity
Martins got into the house. He wasn’t surprised Rekky wasn’t back.
A knock at the door caught him off guard.
“ Who is there?”
“ My name is Mayowa!”
“ From where?”
“ I have a message to deliver to you!”
Martins stood up taking the word for what it was. He thought he had a package that was to be delivered to him.
On opening the door, he saw Mayowa. He didn’t look like a delivery man and besides he didn’t see any package in his hands. Instinct kicked in as he shut the door quickly…
“ Hello Sir! Please open the door! I have an important message for you! Especially concerning your wife. You both are going to die tomorrow if I don’t talk to you. Please open the door! Your wife is going to make a lot of people die tomorrow if I don’t speak to her!”
Martins couldn’t believe a mad man was at his door.
“ Sir, I suggest you move away from my door before I call the police on you!” Martins said
“ Please sir, I have been in the future… I know you have a friend by the name Chioma… if you don’t listen to me, you might never see Chioma again after tomorrow!”
The mention of Chioma’s name made him pause on the call he was making. He was about calling the police emergency number.
“ What do you know about Chioma?” Martins asked as he went into the kitchen to get one of the sharp kitchen knives.
“ Everything… I know she was the woman you should have married and you met her recently …”
Martins opened the door with the knife in his hand.
“ I have a very sharp knife in hand. If you try anything funny, I won’t hesitate to cut your throat….” Martins said as he was opening the door gently. The moment he opened the door in full, he was surprised to see Rekky with mouth wide opened behind the man.
Rekky had heard Mayowa’s last statement about loving another woman.
Rekky pushed Mayowa aside and walked it..
“ Mrs Rekky… I know about Osmond!” Mayowa said in a rush. Rekky stopped in her track…
“ I know he has some of your underwears which he plans to use for money rituals…” Mayowa says
Martins and Rekky turns sharply to Mayowa.
“ Oh Really? Nice try…Martins…So you went to employ a false prophet of doom against me. Because you have been asking me of one of the underwears and I said I couldn’t find it, you decided to get a false prophet.. Nice try! So you have been going through my phone as well, to get the name you gave him… Hey, Mr Prophet of doom, Yes my boyfriend’s name is Osmond and Yes I give him my panties as a sourvenir to keep me in his thoughts always… What else is new about my life you want to tell him?”
Mayor couldn’t believe he had hit a wall…

“ Get out of my house!” Martins said
“ Please… I need you to believe me. I am not mad!“ Mayowa said
“ I know you are not mad, but you are a blackmailer! Who gave you our information? I get … How much do you want? You found a very interesting story and you want to cash out. Husband is in love with ex girlfriend and wife has a boyfriend. I know! So how much are you asking for, anything above a 100 thousand, you can’t get!”
“ I am not a blackmailer, I am a Ritualist… I mean I used to be a Ritualist and somehow by Monday, I am to kidnap you and your wife…it is a complicated thing… I am just here to give you a warning. Don’t let your wife leave the house tomorrow because she will sleep over at Osmond’s house and by Monday morning I will pick her up…“ Mayowa was saying before Martins cut in
“ Sir, before I call the police on you, please get out of my house… NOW!”
Mayowa didn’t want the police arresting him. He still had two more people to reach out to.
Mayowa stepped back.
“ I hope you reflect on all that I have said to you.” Mayowa said before leaving.
“ How did whatever you went to do inside go?” Doctor Mike asked
“ Not as I planned!” Mayowa replied
“ Care to share?”
“ Don’t bother, before you begin to call me Mad!”
“ I don’t…”
“ Please… can we not talk… Please take me to the second address!” Mayowa said. He was on a time bound assignment and that time was not the time to engage in small talks. He had written out all the addresses he could remember from the future.
He was on his way to Osmond’s place.
Osmond heard the knock at his door. He hardly had visitors. He had rented the apartment basically to trick whichever girl fell into his trap. Rekky unfortunately was the prey. He had been living in the apartment for 6 months and by Monday, he was going to move out into his palace if all things went well with his money ritual..
“ Yes who is there?”
Osmond walked towards the door and peeped through the peephole. Mayowa was a strange face.
“ Yes! How can I help you?”
“I have something discreet to discuss with you!”
“ I don’t know you so you don’t expect me to open my door for you!”
“ This has to do with the money ritual!”
Osmond stepped back in shock, He never told anyone about his plans.
“ Who are you?”
“ My name is Mayowa and I have the privilege of knowing what would happen to you by Monday should you continue with the ritual!”
Osmond opened the door sharply and pulled Mayowa in…
“ Can you keep it low! I have neighbors you know…”
“I am sorry!”
“ I am here to appeal to you, to stop what you are doing. I know you are going to take the married woman’s underwear tomorrow. If you do, you won’t live to enjoy the wealth, someone else will take it over after your death.”
“ So the herbalist employed you to scare me away, so that he can use all I have provided for himself?” Osmond said angrily as he picked up his phone.
He dialed the number immediately and before the herbalist picked up, Mayowa took the phone from him and started screaming…
“ Don’t you get, you are about to die and you are calling the man whose delight is your death. After you die,he will use all the pants for his son! Osmond, it’s better you walk away now, when you have the time.!”
“ I can’t walk away, I have lived in poverty for years, and I am just at the verge of making millions, billions and you expect me to stop!”
“ We can make money in the right way!”
“ Yeah… I am a Ritualist! I kill to make a living, but no more!”
“And somehow I know what will happen in the next 24 hours. It’s not looking good for you.”
” Get out of my house now!” Osmond said angrily.
Mayowa moved back. He knew it was best he went out.
” How did that go?” Doctor Mike asked
Mayowa didn’t reply.
” I guess not as you planned. Restitution can be hard!’
” I am not restituting or whatever you call it. I am trying to save lives.”
” Save lives? Are you going about it the right way?”
