Nana Kwadwo and Oforiwaa, now dressed again, listened with horror as Ledi Pedi spoke to them.
Nana Kwadwo’s face was shattered as he stared at the Unblind.
“Oh, my dear Lord, that is why she was behaving so horribly!” he whispered tremulously. “Oh, Ewura Akua, my darling, my love!”
“Lusty promised to kill Ewura Akua, and would never set her free,” Ledi said grimly. “Those demons don’t make idle promises, my friend. It is therefore imperative that we find the host as quickly as possible.”
“And you thought…you thought I was a shell for some damn demon?” Oforiwaa asked with wounded eyes. “I just love Nana here, okay? My heart is breaking apart, and I don’t know how to cope with it…but I’m no host for any demon!”
Pastor Ogum Narh was out in the patio, gazing sadly across the plains.
Ledi Pedi moved away from the window where he had been staring worriedly at the old pastor, and he came and stood in front of Oforiwaa, and then he dropped to one knee and looked at her intently.
“Lady, yes, I can see your soul is in a lot of pain,” he said gently. “The only way that pain can stop is if you cross over from the sinful life you’re leading, into life in Christ right now. I can help you accept Jesus Christ, and God’s peace will fill you, and take all your pain and jealousy away. But the choice is yours!”
“I don’t need peace!” Oforiwaa said shakily as tears came to her eyes. “I just want Nana Kwadwo, please. It’s him I love, and I can’t imagine my life without him.”
“That’s a foolish sassy talk, lady,” Ledi said grimly. “He’s taken, and he’s a good Christian who loves his wife. He’s not coming back to you, no, and neither is he going to take you as a mistress. Way I see it, if you don’t make the right decision and give your life to Christ, now, you’re going to hurt for a long time.”
Oforiwaa looked at Ledi, and then she glanced at the worried and sad profile of Nana Kwadwo. She was torn with indecision. On one hand she loved Nana Kwadwo to bits, and knew he was the only one for her. On the other hand, she knew this strange man called Ledi Pedi was right: Nana Kwadwo would never be with her because of his love for Ewura Akua, and because he was a good Christian.
But she had heard Ledi saying that the demon could kill Ewura Akua. As human as she was, Oforiwaa could not rule out the tiny pinprick of hope that was gnawing relentlessly at her conscience because of this news.
What if, fortunately, they were not able to help Ewura Akua, and she died? Nana Kwadwo would be shattered, and Oforiwaa could comfort him until such a time that he was willing to move on again, and then he would be all hers.
As slim as that notion was, she had always been a pragmatic girl who knew anything was possible, and so she held on to it now.
“Please, give me just a little bit of time, please,” she told Ledi and lowered her eyes because she suddenly had the notion that Ledi could actually see what she was thinking about.
“What should we do now, please?” Nana Kwadwo asked with real pain. “Can I go and see my wife? I miss her so much! I just need to hold her! Oh, I want to hold her in my arms for just a minute!”
Ledi got to his feet and faced him.
“No, you can’t see her now,” he said coldly. “That demon is too strong. I don’t know why it is intent on killing the woman. You’ll help me locate the host and take care of Lusty, and then you can have your wife back.”
“But I need her, I miss her!” Nana Kwadwo screamed. “This is our honeymoon, please!”
“Left my honeymoon too to be here, man!” Ledi said icily. “So get a grip on yourself. Oforiwaa is not the host. I suspect it might be Ewura Akua’s former boyfriend, Akwasi Manso. Heard he has a cabin nearby.”
Nana Kwadwo was trembling.
“Yes, not more than a kilometre or so up the road,” he said gravely. “Then let’s go, please! Ewura Akua has suffered too much!”
Pastor Narh looked at them with a deadpan expression on his face as they approached him on the patio.
“We’re going up to the Manso cabin, Father,” Ledi said.
Pastor Narh nodded.
“I’m going home, son,” he said quietly.
“Oh, come on, Father!” Ledi said, exasperated. “Surely, you didn’t mean your words that you’re through?”
“I’m through, son,” the old pastor said grimly. “I’m going home. You’re the Unblind, Ledi, so do your work. For me, it ends here.”
“Come, Father,” Ledi said. “You’ve been there, and you know how deadly this demon is. You’ve pulled me out of the heat twice already. Please, let’s do this for this couple.”
Pastor Ogum’s face was sad as he laid a hand on Ledi’s shoulder.
“I’ve been a man of peace, my son,” he said gently. “My life has not been rosy. I’ve lived through fire and hail, fighting for my salvation, my dear boy. I’ve struggled to serve my Lord, and now I’m old, and I have but a few years left on this earth. I won’t sacrifice my hard-fought salvation for this demon, you hear me? I won’t do it. Look at how it humiliated me, all of us. It is getting worse, and worse, and I don’t know if this evil entity is going to make me back-slide. I’m done, my son, I’m done. I’ll go home to wait for you. I’ll be inside the church and pray for you.”
He descended the steps, and Nana Kwadwo sighed miserably.
“Wait, Pastor, please,” he said and followed the old pastor, then handed him the car keys. “The car’s in the garage, please. It’s a long way to walk to the roadside, and no taxis come here. Take the car, and I’ll ride with Mr. Ledi.”
Pastor Narh took the car keys and nodded his thanks.
“God bless you, my son.”
When the old man drove away, Ledi and Nana Kwadwo sat in the luxurious Hummer.
Oforiwaa sat in the back, saying she would get off whenever they reached the roadside.
Ledi drove up the road, and sure enough they located a sign at the end of the next fork in the road. It was an elaborately designed place on a metal T-form erection.
THIS WAY TO THE PADDY MANSO CABIN
TRESPASSERS KEEP OFF
Ledi turned took the road and followed the path which rose rather steeply upward, meandering through the trees, and then quite suddenly the road levelled out, and they came across the beautiful log cabin in the trees.
It was enclosed with barbed wire, but the front gates were open. Parked in the courtyard was a sleek Lexus four-runner, with its boot open.
Two women were leaning against the car and a man was putting a suitcase in the boot when Ledi Pedi turned into the courtyard and parked beside the Lexus.
One of the women was wearing white bikini panties and bra, and white high-heeled shoes. The second woman was wearing a skimpy blue jeans skirt and an open shirt that exposed her ample breasts. She was holding a bottle of water and trying to tear off the cellophane around the cover.
The man, tall and sleek and handsome, was wearing a pair of beach shorts and a singlet. He was wearing black sneakers, and holding a bottle of whisky.
He was smoking marijuana, Ledi thought as he got out. The heavy scent of the marijuana permeated the air, and Ledi noticed that it was rolled up in pink paper.
Even as he drew near Akwasi Manso, Ledi knew this was a decadent soul indeed. He removed the marijuana from his mouth and took a slug from the bottle of whisky, and then he leaned forward and kissed the girl in the bikini sloppily.
The girl giggled, wound her arms around Akwasi’s neck, and kissed back.
Oforiwaa remained in the car, but Nana Kwadwo came out of the car with a grim look on his face as he walked forward and stood beside Ledi.
Akwasi turned and grinned at them lecherously.
“Well, well, well!” he said nastily. “What a delegation! The fu*king husband comes here with a blowman to beat me up for screwing the living bejesus out of his whore, right?”
“You bastard!” Nana Kwadwo said angrily and rushed toward Akwasi, but Ledi quickly held his arm and drew him back hard.
“Wow, husby wants a fight!” Akwasi said as he drew on his marijuana. “Leave him, mister, let him come! I’m gonna beat the sh*t outta you!”
“Get a grip on yourself, Nana!” Ledi said as he shook the furious Nana Kwadwo. “This is not necessary!”
“Oh, it is necessary, it is so necessary!” Akwasi Manso said with a chuckle as he blew thick smoke in the direction of Nana Kwadwo. “I fu*ked his new wife last night, huh? She had the hots for me! I banged her ho, ha, pu, tu, ga, humph!”
Nana Kwadwo screamed and lunged, but again Ledi held him back.
Akwasi threw the bottle away and pointed a finger at Nana Kwadwo, and his face was suddenly broken into many lines of agony.
“Fu*k you, man, fu*k you!” he shouted shrilly. “Ewura is mine, and mine alone, you bastard! You stole her from me! You will never know a second of peace in your marriage! I’ll continue scr*wing her anytime I see her!”
That made Nana Kwadwo go still, and he turned hurt eyes to Ledi Pedi, who seemed to be staring at something intently behind Akwasi Manso.
“Is he the host, Ledi, please?” Nana Kwadwo asked hopefully.
Ledi shook his head numbly.
“No, no, he’s not!” he said, and his voice was not steady at all. “Akwasi is not a host, Nana.”
“Then we need to leave and find the real host!” Nana Kwadwo said helplessly. “So what now, who do we target next?”
“I don’t know, really,” Ledi Pedi said, still unsteadily. “It would be someone who didn’t want Ewura Akua to marry you. How’s your relationship with her parents?”
Nana Kwadwo smiled painfully.
“They both hate me,” he said with a little shrug. “Her mother even told me that she prays I fall dead on my honeymoon. They thought their daughter should be married to Akwasi. You see, my parents are poor, and I don’t come from a class family. I am a disgrace to them. They hate me fiercely.”
“Then we’ll go visit your in-laws, Nana Kwadwo,” Ledi said and turned away. “Come, let’s go.”
Nana Kwadwo looked at Akwasi Manso with gentle eyes.
“You know, Akwasi, I forgive you,” he said softly. “You’re not worth a single second of my thoughts. Ewura Akua and me, we’ll make it, you will see.”
“Get the hell outta here, fool!” Akwasi cried with hatred.
Nana Kwadwo turned followed Ledi into the car.
Ledi was sitting very still, watching Akwasi Manso with something close to horror on his face.
“What’s it, Mr. Ledi?” Nana Kwadwo asked with concern. “You’re behaving rather oddly.”
Ledi’s jaw was working, and then he sighed, started the car, and reversed out of the gates. He faced the road, and then suddenly he muttered under his breath and cut off the engine.
“What is going on, Mr. Ledi?” Nana Kwadwo asked, this time with a little fear.
Ledi Pedi looked at him with a pained expression.
“Those three people…they’re going to die violently in a few minutes!” he said with great pain.
“What?” Nana Kwadwo whispered with sudden horror. “Akwasi and his two women?”
Ledi nodded numbly.
“Yes, him…and the two girls with him, yes,” Ledi said, panting. “There are three Death Clouds in there with them, messengers of death!”
“Please do something about it!” Nana Kwadwo siad. “Please, mister, don’t just sit there! Save them!”
Oforiwaa giggled from the backseat.
“Are you for real, mister?” she asked sarcastically. “You can see death? What a horrible fake!”
“Shut up, Oforiwaa!” Nana Kwadwo reprimanded her sharply.
Ledi gripped the steering-wheel tightly.
“Nothing I can do, boy,” he said lamely. “It is their appointed time!”
“You’re going to just sit and watch them die?” Nana Kwadwo asked with horror, and then he suddenly got out of the car and began to race into the house.
“Hey, no!” Ledi cried, but it was too late.
Ledi was already approaching Akwasi Manso.
“Listen, Akwasi, your life is in danger!” Nana Kwadwo began.
Akwasi, who had been fondling the breasts of the girl with the bottle of water, turned suddenly and sank a fist into Nana Kwadwo’s midriff without warning.
Nana Kwadwo gasped and bent double with pain.
“Stupid bastard!” Akwasi groaned, and raised his fist again, but Ledi had reached them by then, and he gave Akwasi a rough shove that sent him smashing into the car behind him.
“You bastard!” Akwasi cried and took a step forward.
Ledi pointed a stern finger at him.
“One more word out of you and I’m gonna beat the hell out of you!” Ledi hissed, and Akwasi suddenly stopped, looking at the muscular man with sudden apprehension.
“He attacked me!” he said sulkily.
Ledi helped Nana Kwadwo up to stand straight.
“Yeah, yeah,” Nana Kwadwo said painfully. “Let’s get out of here then.”
Ledi released Nana Kwadwo and took three steps toward Akwasi Manso. Ledi saw that the three death clouds behind them was sizzling with blatant fury now as he approached.
Death Clouds had always filled Ledi with fear, and as he watched them sizzling behind the three people, cackling with insane energy, waiting to tear out their souls, he was filled with even more heartache.
“Listen to my, Akwasi, and you two ladies, listen too,” Ledi said softly, licking his lips. “Nana Kwadwo just tried to save your lives.”
“Save my life?” Akwasi said angrily. “I know he wants to attack me!”
Ledi faced them, his face grim.
“You’ve lived your life of sin all these years, Akwasi,” Ledi said, his voice still unsteady. “The end has come for you. The Bible says it is appointed onto a man once to die, and after that judgement. I don’t know how to put this mildly, my friend, but let me tell you this; I’m a man of God. I have powers to see into the spiritual world. And I can tell you right now, as we stand here, that Death has appeared to take you away…the three of you!”
Akwasi and the girl in the white bikini exchanged glances, and they burst into raucous laughter.
The girl with the bottled water looked worried suddenly, and she began to button up her dress, covering up her bare breasts.
“Oh, oh, this gets better and better!” Akwasi said and brought out his wallet, extracting two fifty-cedi notes. “Something for your foresight, man of God!”
“You better listen to him, Akwasi!” Nana Kwadwo said desperately.
“I know you don’t believe in God,” Ledi began.
“There’s no God!” Akwasi screamed angrily. “Just a fairytale you old wives spread to us! The world evolved! God doesn’t exist, Jesus is a myth, and the Holy Spirit is a hoax! Get the fu*k outta here, moron!”
Ledi nodded once.
“I was expecting that from you,” he said coldly. “But, if you ever believed in anything, then believe this, my boy! The Death Clouds are here. If you die now, in your present sinful state, they’ll take you to a very bad place! But if you will listen to me, and accept Christ now, right here, you’ll be pardoned, and sent to a better place, even after the Judgement Day.”
“Shut the fuck up and get out of here, madman!” Akwasi Manso said and turned away. “Get in, ladies! Let’s go and have some fun!”
The girl in the bikini giggled and got into the front seat of the car.
Ledi saw the three Death Clouds now hovering above the car, and sudden tears came to his eyes. He reached out suddenly and grasped Akwasi’s arm.
“Please, please, man, let me help you! Just a few seconds to accept Christ, man! You’re gonna die, believe me, and the journey after that is horrible!”
Akwasi pushed Ledi back hard, angrily.
“Get the fu*k away from me, you stinking c*nt!” he screamed and opened the driver’s door. “Hey, you bit*h, are you getting in or what?”
The girl in the jeans skirt looked haunted as she opened the back door, and then she suddenly rushed toward Ledi, and as she did so one of the Death Clouds hissed dangerously and almost made a swipe at Ledi.
Ledi stepped back with fear.
“Please, please!” the girl cried, and her face was agonized. “My father said he had a bad dream about me! He warned me not to come on this trip, but I needed the money, please! Please, I beg of you, help me.”
Ledi nodded, trying hard to keep the tears from his eyes.
“You ready to accept Christ?” he asked numbly.
“Yes, yes, I am!” she cried.
“Give me that bottle of water and kneel down!” Ledi said shakily, and took the bottle of water, twisting the cover free.
The girl knelt in front of him.
“Raise your hands,” Ledi said gently. “What’s your name?”
“Yaa Offeibea,” she whispered, tears in her eyes.
Akwasi got out of the car angrily and rounded it with fierce eyes, the marijuana jammed in his mouth.
The girl in the bikini had come out too, and she stood giggling.
“Get the hell up and let’s go, Yaa!” Akwasi screamed angrily and reached out to grab the girl.
“You will remain still!” Ledi said sharply, and immediately Akwasi’s hand fell, and he took a step back with sudden apprehension. Ledi glared at him for a second longer, and then he turned his attention back to Yaa.
“Pray, Yaa,” he said gently. “Tell God you’re a sinner, but today you have believed in the name of His Son Jesus Christ. You renounce your life of sin, and immerse yourself in life with Christ. Ask God to forgive your sins, and let the Holy Spirit come into your life!”
Ledi’s heart was troubled as the girl prayed, thinking that maybe it was too late.
But she prayed, and she prayed earnestly!
The Death Cloud sizzled with terrible energy, its fury latent, as it tried to cut Ledi into pieces, but Ledi was suddenly glowing, and the Death Cloud retreated.
When Yaa Offeibea said amen, Ledi uncapped the bottle of water and began pouring it on the girl.
“And now, with the power of Christ in me, I baptize you with this water, pouring it over your head in a symbol of total immersion of your sinful body into a cleaner, washed life of God, washing your sins away as you’re given the divine rebirth of new life in Christ, so that you become a part of the few chosen into His kingdom. I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit! You’ve become a new creation from today, Yaa Offeibea!”
Ledi stepped back.
Yaa, weeping, looked at him tremulously.
“Did it work?” she asked helplessly.
“You’re done, Yaa,” Ledi said miserably. “Welcome to the family of God. Let go of your sins!”
“Can we go now?” he asked. “And you better clean yourself before you get into my car, lady!”
Yaa, wet and smiling, looked at Ledi Pedi.
“Pray for me, sir,” she said softly. “Thank you very much!”
She opened the booth of the car, rummaged into one of the bags, and took out towel which she began to dry herself with.
She got into the Lexus, and Akwasi did a dangerous U-turn, and then he sped towards the gate. He wound down his window, stuck out his left hand, and then flipped Ledi with the middle finger.
Ledi was staring after the car, and he was breathing hard, his eyes frantic and worried.
“What’s it now?” Nana Kwadwo asked as he touched Ledi’s arm.
“Damn it!” Ledi said helplessly. “That girl, that Yaa! Why didn’t she glow? She should’ve glowed! Lord, didn’t she pray well? Didn’t she really repent? Why are there three Death Clouds still behind that car? I thought….”
And then he broke off and pointed a hand at the car, because the backseat was suddenly filled with a brilliant glow, and one of the Death Clouds screeched with rage and shot off into the sky, vanishing instantly.
Ledi laughed suddenly, and as he looked at Nana Kwadwo there were tears in his eyes.
“She made it, man,” he said tremulously. “She’s glowing now!”
The Lexus turned a corner in the road, and Ledi winced because Akwasi had been driving too fast for the turn.
And then, just then, they heard a terrible smashing sound, and the horn of a car ripped through the air.
“My God!” Nana Kwadwo screamed. “They crashed!”
But Ledi was already running toward his car.
They jumped in and Ledi sped towards the road where the Lexus had turned the bend. Oforiwaa was screaming in the backseat, and there was commotion in the car.
Ledi turned the bend, and came to a screeching halt!
Akwasi Manso’s car had smashed into a huge tree!
He had taken the bend too fast and lost control!
The passenger door was open, and the girl in the bikini was lying half-out of the car, covered with a pool of blood!
Akwasi Manso’s body had gone through the windscreen, cut up badly, and spewing great amounts of blood.
Nana Kwadwo and Oforiwaa were screaming as they got out of the car and rushed toward the scene of the accident.
They were both weeping miserably.
Ledi got down slowly.
He was no longer weeping.
He knew there was nothing to be done, because he could see the souls of the three people hovering near the front of his car.
Ledi Pedi saw the great look of torture on Akwasi Manso’s face as he looked first at Ledi, and then at his smashed body on the bonnet.
There was a sudden hiss, and the two Death Clouds slowly emerged from the trees. The soul of the girl in the bikini turned slowly and saw the Death Cloud hovering behind her.
She screamed with horror and tried to float away, but the Death Cloud hissed furiously, and the ashy, terrible-looking, sinister beings inside the Death Cloud reached out and grabbed her.
Ledi looked away, sickened by her screams as they held her and dragged her with murderous fiendishness into their fold, and then they bore her away.
The Death Cloud that hovered above Akwasi Manso was bigger, darker and more dangerous!
The soul of Akwasi Manso looked at Ledi with a horror so complete that Ledi’s heart was filled with compassion for him.
“I’m dead, right, just like you warned me?” Akwasi Manso asked with trepidation, quivering with horror.
Ledi could not answer; he only felt the tears of pity bubbling in his eyes.
“I’m scared, please!” Akwasi said, and his voice was shaking badly now, his soul shivering with horror. “Please, I beg of you, please, please, I’m so scared! I’m afraid! Please, mister, pray for me too! Help me repent!”
Ledi opened his mouth wide as his tears choked him.
“I’m sorry, man!” he said unsteadily. “It’s too late now!”
“NO!” Akwasi’s soul screamed, filled with regrets and fear and pain. “No, please, please! I’m so scared! I beg of you! Please, mister! Help me! Pray for me!”
“Only one chance, Akwasi, whilst you were alive,” Ledi said, wiping his tears away. “It’s too late now! The moment you die, it’s over! Can’t do anything now! Wish I can, but…”
His voice trailed off because the hands that reached for Akwasi from the Death Cloud were talons that ripped through the soul of the young man.
Ledi dropped to one knee and shut his eyes, looking downward, not wishing to see the horror on Akwasi’s face as he was gripped by the Death Cloud!
But Ledi heard the horrible screams of Akwasi Manso alright!
These were screams that Ledi Pedi would not forget in a hurry!
He had not heard such frenzy and torture and absolute horror in a departing soul’s voice than what he heard that day in Akwasi Manso’s voice as he was taken away.
A crushing sense of guilt settled on Ledi’s shoulders.
“I should’ve tried harder, oh Lord!” Ledi wept bitterly.
“You did your best, mister!” came the calm voice of Yaa Offeibea, and Ledi looked up slowly.
He could barely see her.
Her soul was enshrouded in a light so powerfully-brilliant that he had to shield his eyes from it.
She had made it.
The Angel of Death had come for her, to keep her soul at a good place till the great Judgement Day of God.
She was lucky…she had sought salvation on the eleventh hour and found it.
Not like Akwasi and that girl in the bikini.
“Thank you so much, mister!” Yaa Offerbea’s happy voice reached him. “Tell my parents I say I’m so sorry…but in the end, I found life!”
And then she was gone.
Ledi sat back, his back against the tyre of the Hummer, and raised trembling hands to his face.
And that was when a trembling Oforiwaa suddenly dropped to her knees in front of him, her tears of anguish tearing through her.
“Please, please!” she whispered, her voice almost gone. “Me too…help me find life! You really saw their deaths! Help me, Mister, please help me! Don’t let it be too late for me!”
