The car hurtled down the grassy knoll that led to the main road.
Ledi’s phone rang, and he activated it through the car’s speaker system.
“Hello, Father,” he said.
“I forgot to tell you, son, that the Manso family are in Sinai Hills,” Pastor Narh said quickly. “They came down because of the death of their son. It was reported this afternoon on the news.”
“Are they still here?” Ledi Pedi asked grimly.
“Well, I don’t know about that,” Pastor Narh replied. “But they might still be at the cabin. Better check the cabin first before you go to Beach Road.
“Yeah, I’ll do that, thanks Father,” Ledi said.
He hit the main road soon afterwards and took the right freeway that led to the cabins.
Forty minutes later he turned right onto the forest roads.
He could feel the palpable evil immediately!
The trees were filled with it, and he knew without a doubt that Lusty was here, puffing and huffing, and waiting for him!
Ledi’s jaw set tightly as he maneuvered his Hummer up the treacherous road. The darkness closed in on him, and the car’s powerful lights barely illuminated the road ahead because a thick fog was swirling around him.
He drove past the Ainooson cabin, where it had all started, and continued to climb the treacherous road. Very soon he came to the signboard that announced the entrance to the Manso cabin, and he took the turn.
He saw that the accident scene had been cleared, and he breathed with relief. He took the final turn, moved slowly toward the main gates, and then he turned in.
There was a huge family car parked in front of the cabin, the kind of luxurious trailer that had sleeping bunks, kitchen, and sitting areas. Ledi parked beside it, and then killed the engine.
There were bright lights inside and outside the cabin, and he could faintly hear the drone of a generator somewhere in the vicinity. Ledi felt a great unrest in his body as he sat in the car, and for a moment he could not explain why.
Yaw Boat’s warning came back to his mind, jangling his nerves for a bit, and then he opened the door and got out, closing the door gently. He mounted the stairs to the porch, and as he walked toward the main door it opened, and a tall, handsome elderly man came out.
Apart from the fact that he had grey hair, and a grey moustache that circled his lips, and the fact that he was carrying a little bit more of flesh on his frame, he was a photocopy of his son.
He was wearing a long, bulbous black gown that reached to his ankles, and his feet were pushed into a pair of comfortable feather-topped slippers.
He stood looking at Ledi, and there was indescribable pain on his face, supported by heavily-swollen lips and eyes.
This man, Paddy Manso of Mans Industries, was a suffering man. It was evident that he was grieving really badly, mourning his only son like only a loving father would.
Ledi stopped within arm’s reach and looked at the man with compassion.
“Good evening,” he said gently. “I’m Ledi Pedi.”
The millionaire nodded once.
“She said you’ll be coming,” he said, and his voice broke, almost in a sob as he rubbed a trembling hand down his face. “She said she would be waiting by the lake for you.”
Ledi scowled at that as he looked at him.
He had delivered his words in a dead, resigned voice, his face filled with both resignation and grief.
“And where’s the lake?” Ledi asked quietly.
“Behind the cabin, a path leads to it, straight, through the trees,” he said in that same dead voice, and then he turned away as if to move back into the cabin.
Ledi reached out and grabbed his hand.
“What is it again?” the broken man asked in a tired voice.
“Just a moment,” Ledi said, taking a step nearer. “The way you spoke, that your wife is waiting for me at the lake. It seems to me you know what is going on.”
He looked at Ledi directly, his face haunted.
“I said she would be waiting,” he replied in an unsteady voice. “I didn’t say my wife. She is the woman I married, yes, but she is not my wife. My wife got lost in her a long time ago, about ten years now.”
He shrugged free and entered the cabin. Ledi Pedi took a deep breath, and then he followed Mr. Paddy Manso into the cabin.
It was almost like the one Nana Kwadwo and his wife had occupied, just that this one was a little bit bigger and more luxuriously designed.
There were a lot of family pictures framed along the walls. Paddy Manso dropped into a chair and covered his face with trembling hands.
Ledi walked up to him and stood facing the man.
“You don’t see her as your wife,” he stated calmly.
He looked up at him tremulously.
“You’re a man of God, ain’t you?” he asked calmly.
“I am,” Ledi replied, and Paddy nodded.
“I know I’m with a woman, but there’s something wrong with her, you know,” he said softly. “About ten years ago she stopped making love to me, and she switched to having affairs, sometimes with me present, with women. Mr…what did you say your name was again?”
“Ledi,” Ledi supplied. “Ledi Pedi.”
“Ahuh, Mr. Pedi, she has become a stranger to me,” he said quietly. “I have been hoping that I’ll have my wife back, but alas, it never happens.”
“And you have an idea what is wrong with her, right?” Ledi asked gently.
“Yes, she is possessed by an unclean spirit,” Paddy Manso said in a tearful voice. “Eight years ago a man came here, in the night, just like you’ve come.
He told me my wife was possessed, and that he was going to drive the unclean spirit out of her. He followed her to the lake, yes, but he never came back.”
“Never came back?” Ledi Pedi asked, and he felt a coldness descending over him as shivers of fear slowly moved through him. “What do you mean by that?”
“Exactly what it means, Mr. Ledi,” he said calmly. “I was hoping he would bring my wife back, but he went to the lake and never came back.
After him, over the years, two more men of God also came, and on each occasion I prayed that they would bring my real wife back to me, but none of them ever came back.
You’re the fourth man of God, and she’s waiting for you at the lake. You want my piece of advice? Go out, get into your car, and drive away. If you go down to the lake you might not come back.”
“I’m glad you understand, Mr. Manso,” Ledi said quietly. “Yes, indeed, she is possessed by a very vicious demon. Tonight, by the grace of God, you might have your wife back, because God is going to drive out that demon.”
Paddy Manso snickered.
“That’s what they always say!” he said as Ledi turned away from him. “And yet, none of them helped! Today I’ve lost my only able son, and been left with a helpless son! Oh, Lord! How can this happen to me?”
“A helpless son?” he asked with narrowed eyes. “I was told you had only one child…and that was Akwasi.”
“Yes, my other son, he’s fifteen,” he said miserably. “No one talks about him because, since the day he was born, he has never moved a muscle. He just lies there, immobile, just staring.”
Ledi’s compassion was now full as he looked at the man. A man God had blessed with wealth, and yet his oldest son had been a drug addict and a womanizer, and had eventually died!
His wife had denied him intimate relations for ten years, and he evidently lived in fear of his wife. To make matters worse, he had a son who was completely paralyzed, and so that son had been hidden from the eyes of the public!
“Is he here?” Ledi asked grimly, his compassion now blatant.
“Yes, in there, on his bed!” Paddy Manso said, pointing to the partly open door to his left.
Ledi Pedi opened the door wider and went through.
“Hey!” Paddy Manso said with sudden agitation. “Come back here! Where do you think you’re going to?”
Ledi paid no heed to him.
He walked forward and opened two doors on his right, but they were empty.
Paddy Manso was coming behind him, screaming, telling him to keep away from his son.
Ledi Pedi opened the third door…and saw the boy.
He was thin and looked emaciated, wearing blue Ben 10 pyjamas. He was staring blankly at the ceiling, his hands and legs lying docilely. A young boy who had been paralyzed from birth, a boy who had never known the joys of being a child.
Ledi Pedi strode forward just as Paddy Manso entered the room, screaming with agitation.
“Hey, Mr. Ledi!” he cried in anguish. “What do you think you’re doing? Please leave, now! Leave my son alone!”
Ledi strode forward, reached down, and took the boy’s hand.
“I bid you rise, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,” Ledi said, and pulled the boy up.
The boy was jerking spasmodically now, but Ledi pulled him off the bed and held him upright…and he stayed standing!
Ledi let the boy’s hand go, and he was standing still!
Paddy Manso was standing, blinking quite rapidly as if he wanted to clear his eyes. Great tears fell down his face as he stared with something close to horror on his face.
“Junior?” he whispered, his voice trembling hard.
Tears were slowly rolling down the little boy’s face as he took a trembling step forward, and then another, his arms now held out stiffly for balance!
The boy who had not moved any part of his body, neither uttered a single word in his life, was now moving forward!
“Daddyish!” the boy muttered.
With a yelp of uncontrollable delight Mr. Paddy Manso rushed to his son, fell down on his knees, and hugged the boy tightly!
And now they were holding each other in a fierce hug and weeping!
Ledi didn’t have any more time to waste. He rushed out fast, leaving the elated father and son, and walked briskly out.
He moved to the back of the cabin, and then he saw the path meandering its way through the dark trees!
Ledi Pedi moved purposely toward the path, and then, just before he entered the trees, he hesitated!
Suddenly, he felt the evil as he began to glow fiercely!
The forest stretched out before him, dark and foreboding, the trees seeming to warn him to keep off!
According to Mr. Manso, three men of God had walked down this path, and never came back! What happened to them at the lake?
Ledi could hear ghostly voices coming from within the trees ahead of him! It was very dark, and he could not see anything!
He stood still and looked into the terrible blackness of trees.
He could feel the pool of absolute evil emanating from the forest, the malevolent violence sizzling in the air!
This was it, the reckoning, the final battleground. Was he going to be the fourth man to die within the folds of this evil place?
Ledi Pedi sighed greatly…
He admitted it to himself at last.
He was afraid…
Yes, he was very much afraid!
