Ledi called the owner of the night club, a Frenchman known as Henri Didier, and explained that the stripper was dead.
Henri, who invariably had been one of Ledi’s friends for many years, and knew that Ledi dabbled in the surreal and the supernatural, came over quickly with one of his doctors.
“It would be passed off as an overdose of drugs,” Henri said carefully as he looked at Ledi’s bruised neck and face. “Get out of here, Ledi. How many times have I told you to keep your damn ghosts from my joint, huh?”
Ledi Pedi lit a cigar and puffed on it, and then he dropped it into a bowl with a look of disgust on his face.
“Thanks, Henri,” he said softly. “I really do owe you one.”
He left the club and got in his car.
It was quite late when he drove towards his home.
The spirit of Ebo Sintim had disappeared sometime between Ledi’s call to Didier and the arrival of the Frenchman. Ledi’s jaw set dangerously as he wondered what kind of nefarious demon Sintim would take on as an ally next.
Yaw Boat had been right, and Ledi knew it.
He was now walking a thin line between life and death. He had imagined death would be welcomed, but in the grasp of that demon he had felt real panic for a moment as death raced toward him.
Ledi sighed dejectedly, and then he leaned forward and punched a knob on the CD Video Player, switching the station from radio to pen drive, and just as the heavy sounds of lovers’ rock reggae filled the car, he looked up, and saw the spirit of a little girl hovering right in the middle of the road!
Ledi groaned and stepped down hard on the brake pedal, causing the huge car to buck and come to a shuddering halt.
He looked around him with sudden trepidation.
He knew that the White Oaks Cemetery was not more than a thousand metres away; this was not the first time he had come across a restless spirit this part of the world, but this was the first time he had come across one standing right in the middle of road looking directly at him!
It was far past midnight, and although the street lights were blazing, he was all alone on that stretch of road…alone, yes, with that little girl standing not more than ten metres from his car!
She was wearing a green dress that seemed to be splattered with dried blood. In her hand was a Teddy Bear doll with one hand off. Her hair was plaited long, standing on her head like a porcupine’s spikes.
She was not more than five years old, and she smiled demurely at him although he noticed that her eyes were pure white without pupils.
Ledi knew he had to step on the accelerator and blast right through her, but he couldn’t. He knew this was an evil spirit, a part of a horde that could harm him, even kill him, like Yaw Boat had warned, and yet he still sat behind the wheel, gripping it tightly and almost frozen in his seat.
However, when the street lights flickered suddenly, and he saw a few scraps of paper fluttering on the roadside, he knew this was it, and he had to get out of there.
Ledi Pedi gunned the accelerator, holding the steering-wheel tightly.
The spirit of the little girl opened her mouth and let out a fiendish screech! Ledi saw how her face suddenly crumpled, leaving it like a skull, and how her eyes suddenly blazed red!
The car passed through her, and Ledi saw her moving through the bonnet, windscreen, and suddenly she was in the car with him, still screeching!
Her nose had suddenly become the snout of a wolf-like thing, and her teeth were serrated like sharp knives!
She was screeching shrilly and slapping at his face, snarling into his eyes, her fingers clawing at him like knives, her teeth seeking to sink into his neck!
And then Ledi saw them!
They began to emerge from the ground!
Terrible spirits with wicked eyes, most of them dripping ghoulish flesh!
Some floated into the car, whilst others slashed at his tyres, cutting them up to smithereens so that the car swerved off the road and smashed into a light pole, flinging Ledi forward, but the seat belt held him in check!
They were all over him how, howling and screaming!
The door was ripped open and the ghostly figures held him and pulled him out!
They tore and bit into him as he was borne off his feet and carried through the air. Ledi fought, turning and twisting as he was borne through the air, the howling and screams of the demons all around him, deafening and absolutely scary!
Ledi felt tree branches slapping against him, and then it dawned on him that he was being taken in the direction of the White Oaks Cemetery.
And then he was clear of the trees, still sailing through the air, still being screamed at by the maddened spirits, and he could see the pale round moon in the sky.
He began to hurtle toward the ground, and he saw the cold, white tombstones, and he knew they had brought him to their territory, where their powers were most lethal and he was at his vulnerable best!
He saw the ghostly figures hovering on the graves, making irritated humming sounds, cold eerie faces turning to stare at him!
Ledi Pedi crashed into…a freshly-dug grave!
It had rained, and the sleet had made the grave muddy and wet, and as Ledi splashed into the muddle, he heard the unpleasant wailing and yowling sound of Ebo Sintim somewhere in the middle of the cemetery.
He got to his feet, covered with mud and gooey stuff, and he looked upward angrily. The grave was deep, and the edge soared above his head, and he knew the frenzied spirits had widened the grave in a way and made it deep enough.
Then, they began to appear around the grave, peering at him with eyes filled with hatred! These were evil spirits, discontent and confused spirits that were as furious as they were deadly! They snarled and hissed at him, puffing and huffing, waiting for a chance to come in and tear him apart.
Ledi saw them, and even though he was uncontrollably angry, he knew how bad it could be if these spirits were handled wrongly.
He heard the wailing outcry again, and then the spirit of Ebo Sintim blasted down into the grave, his face maddened, his lips opened in a snarl, his eyes green orbs of fury that bored into Ledi.
Ledi Pedi glared at the evil spirit with latent fury.
“You’re beginning to irk me sore,” Ledi said with palpable anger.
Ebo Sintim screeched and wailed, and his hands went up, his fingers like claws, ready to cut up Ledi Pedi.
“You do any of that shit, and believe me I’ll call upon the name of the Lord, and repent all over again and send you straight to Hades!” Ledi said furiously, fighting to keep down the terror bubbling down in his guts.
He remembered Yaw Boat’s warning, and knew that right now, right here in a muddy, fresh grave inside a cemetery, he was at his most vulnerable, and his life wasn’t worth one pesewa!
Ebo Sintim stayed his hands, but his eyes were still hate-filled as he glared at Ledi.
“You ought to die!” the spirit said furiously, and up on the rim of the grave the evil ghostly figures went into a frenzied cacophony, needing just a tiny little prodding to descend down on Ledi Pedi and lay him to waste.
“Why?” Ledi hissed right back. “Because I stopped you from killing an innocent man who’s bent on marrying your girlfriend? Are you against their union? Is it that you don’t want any man near her, or it is your best friend you don’t want near your girl?”
“Neither!” the wailing entity wailed, causing a terrible stench, and then he dropped his hands slowly and a crazy look of sadness crept over his face. “Kofi was more than a brother!” the spirit said, slinking miserably to the far end of the grave. “I was a writer, and I had just received a cheque from my foreign publishers. It was my first retainer, and I received the cheque and paid it into a joint bank account for me and Esi. Ebo was there, and I even gave him the pay-in-slip to give to Esi because I was on my way to a meeting.”
The spirit paused, and much against his will Ledi was forced to ask the question.
“And what happened, Ebo?”
The look on the spirit’s face was shattered misery.
“Kofi insisted we had lunch together, and we went to our favourite restaurant. Next thing I realized was looking down at my own body in a hospital, with the doctor saying I died of poison, a lethal poison in my food!”
“Wow,” Ledi whispered, aghast. “And you suspect your friend?”
“Who else?” the wailing spirit screamed. “He had just seen just how much money I had deposited into the account, about two billion cedis, and I gave him the pay-in-slip! He insisted on going to the restaurant, and we ate in different bowls. Yes, he poisoned my food!”
“And why would he do a thing like that?”
“Are you that thick in the head?” the spirit screamed. “Greed! Simple greed! He got rid of me, and now he’s going to marry Esi! Why? Because he knows the money is in Esi’s account! He marries her and he would get access to it. He could kill her too, and everything would revert to him!”
“Wow!” Ledi said, as it finally set in.
It made sense, in a way.
