The Legend Of Dayo is revealing…
THE LEGEND OF DAYO
SEASON 2: THE ATROCITY
An Evil Plan
The Spirit of Jhon Moziz showed Temi a series of events quickly.
First, they looked into a room where Temi saw the naked bodies of Temitayo Anubi and Juliet Udeh Onyinye on a bed, and he gasped with absolute shock.
“Temitayo and the Juliet woman did the marriage thing?” he asked with disbelief.
“Yes,” Jhon Moziz said sadly. “Although Juliet was older than Temitayo, she seduced him because she just couldn’t forgive King Demi for rejecting her and making a mere slave, your mother, the Queen of Dayo. She wanted to have her revenge at any cost, and she saw Temitayo as the only man with ambitions to make it happen.”
“But that was so preposterous!” Temi said, still shocked. “Did the king know what was going on?”
“Yes, indeed, he did,” Jhon Moziz said. “I told him something bad could come out of it, but he wasn’t really concerned about them. You see, he let Temitayo remain in the palace, and treated him like a son. And then, ten years after King Demi married Kelly Philip, they never had any children, and so Temitayo knew that eventually, he might become the next king if King Demi died childless.”
“And how do people have children?” Temi asked with a rush of emotion, feeling lightheaded again. “I would love to have children with Neji Helen soon.”
Jhon Moziz didn’t reply, but there was that gloom of darkness again, and the next moment his vision came back he forgot all about the children making probe.[stextbox id=”alert” caption=”WARNING”]Exlusive Content to aaron-ansah-agyeman.com Do not copy or share on any other site.

He saw himself looking into a huge hall.
There were a lot of people in the hall!
King Demi was dressed in splendid clothes, and so was his queen, the exquisite Kelly Philip. They were sitting on thrones. A woman in long sky-blue filmy dress was holding a baby in her arms.
She bowed low and handed the baby to a beaming King Demi, whose eyes were filled with tears.
“Is that me?” Temi asked excitedly. “Was that the day I was born?”
“No, my Lord!” the spirit of Jhon Moziz said. “That was the day your older sister, Princess Uvbi Akenzua, turned one year and was shown to the people of Dayo!”
Temi watched, intrigued and happy, as the people in the great hall erupted into spontaneous cheers and shouts of happiness.
King Demi, beaming happily, and with tears of joy in his eyes, stood up and walked up to his aged mother, and gave the little princess to her.
There was another shout of happiness as the old lady raised the baby high whilst singing a sweet, beautiful song.
Temi saw Temitayo standing at the far corner of the room.
He was a young man. He was tall and thin with a goatee beard and slim moustache. His face was filled with bleak hatred as he watched the proceedings.
Behind him was Juliet Udeh Onyinye, and her face was equally dark with hatred.
“What’s with them?” Temi asked, appalled by the looks of hatred on their faces. “The king had a daughter, not a son! Surely, there was no cause for them to worry yet?”
“There was every cause to worry because whoever the little princess grew up to marry would be interim king until a son was born to them,” Jhon Moziz said. “Those two and a lot of people had thought Queen Kelly Philip was barren, but when she gave birth after ten years, it presented a very serious problem to Leke Olugbade Bally and Temitayo because it was now evident that whatever evil power Leke Bally cast that prevented the queen from giving birth was broken. There was every probability that the next child of the queen would be a son, and so those three evil beings began to sweat and they sought for ways to destroy the king!”
There was a bout of light-headedness, followed by dizziness, and then darkness, but almost immediately the darkness cleared, and Temi found himself looking at the great Empire of Dayo from way in the sky.
It was looking so serene, so beautiful and so peaceful.
“King Demi was one of the best kings Dayo ever had,” Jhon Moziz said sadly. “He was loved by the people, and he took great decisions when it came to intervening in the crisis various parts of the world faced. He was such a good man at heart, and was loved so greatly. And then, when Princess Uvbi Akenzua was five years old, something bad happened. Come, I will show it to you!”
There was a flash of darkness, and then Temi found himself looking at a scary scene.
He saw three men in a huge room in the eastern section of the great palace. Temi recognized Temitayo Anubi and Leke Olugbade Bally.
The third man was a short, powerfully-built man.
“That man, the short one…who is he?” Temi asked, his voice quivering with fear.
“That man is Emmanuel Stephen Skandy, the second in command of the Great Dayo Army,” Jhon Moziz said, and his voice was very bitter. “He used to be the First Commander of the army, superior to everybody except King Demi. But he once led a peace mission to a village, and he came away with stolen gold. King Demi was angry with him, so he demoted Stephen Skandy. The king chose a new First Comander called Prosper Freeman.”
“And of course, Stephen Skandy wasn’t happy,” Temi stated softly.
“He was very furious, and he hated the king for that!” Jhon Moziz said. “In his hatred he allowed Temitayo Anubi to sway him, and he went over to their side!”
Temi watched, horrified, as Leke Olugbade Bally handed over a small phial containing a transparent liquid to Emmanuel Stephen Skandy.
“What’s in that bottle that Leke Bally has just given to Skandy?” Temi asked grimly.
“A very poisonous substance that corrodes the body from the inside!” the voice of Jhon Moziz said grimly. “It was a very potent and evil poison without an antidote, formed by that most vile entity, Leke Olugbade Bally!”
Temi watched, sick to his stomach, as Emmanuel Stephen Skandy left the room, pushing the phial into his inner pocket.
The short man was seen walking furtively through the halls until he came to the kitchen, and another man approached him. Stephen Skandy handed the phial containing the deadly and horrible poison to the man.
“And who’s that man too?” Temi asked painfully.
“That is Sehrikey Zaharks, the royal cook!” Jhon Moziz said. “He cooks for the king.”
“Oh, goodness me!” Temidayo said with horror. “And he now has the poison? Didn’t you say you are the Grand Oracle and supposed to protect the king? How could all this evil happen without you knowing?”
“Because Leke Olugbade Bally is a powerful evil, my Lord! He gave a special chains to all of them, those chains covered the perpetrators from exposure, and I couldn’t see what was going on until it was too late!”
“Oh, dear!” Temi said tearfully. “Oh, dear, oh dear!”
“They planned their evil deed perfectly,” said the spirit of Jhon Moziz with bitterness. “They waited until the Dayo Day celebrations happened, and finally put their planned betrayal into action!”
“What is the Dayo Day celebrations?” Temi asked, still shocked at what he had witnessed. “A special day?”
“Yes, my Lord,” Jhon Moziz said. “Once a year, in the ninth moon, we celebrate Dayo Day. It is a great festival in Dayo, where we meet in the middle of the town, Dayo Square, and celebrate. We eat and drink and have fun! It is always a great day! Everybody takes part in the celebrations! Come, let me show you something else quickly! Our time is very limited! You must return to your body soon or you’ll die, My Lord!”
The light-headedness was not so powerful now, and the darkness was just like a blink, and then Temi found himself looking into the beautiful royal garden of Dayo.
King Demi, handsome and powerful, was reclining under a wonderful bamboo shade beside a marvellous pool of water.
He was dressed in a long blue gown, and he was playing with his five-year old daughter, Princess Uvbi Akenzua.
Standing behind him, guarding the entrance, were two grim-faced men. One was the stout-looking Stephen Skandy, whilst the other was younger, tall, masculine and handsome with a great white beard.
“Who’s the man with the beard?” Temi asked quietly.
“That’s Prosper Freeman, devoted warrior, the man King Demi made the First Commander of the warriors!”
“I see,” Temi said sadly.
“See, look over there in the far end where Sehrikey Zaharks is mixing the fruit drinks for the king,” Jhon Moziz said, and Temi looked.
Indeed, the butler had mixed two drinks in a glass, and he surreptitiously took out the deadly vial and poured the terrible poison into the taller glass.
“Oh, no, oh no!” Temi whispered with horror as Sehrikey Zaharks carried the drinks in a tray to a low table beside King Demi and his daughter.
The butler lifted the cool glass containing lemonade and gave it to the princess.
She drank excitedly as King Demi lifted his poisoned glass of drink.
“No!” Temidayo screamed shrilly as his young heart thumped with fear. “It is poisoned! It is poisoned, don’t drink it!”
“Be quiet, my Lord!” Jhon Moziz said sharply. “Whatever you’re seeing has already happened, long time ago, before you were even born! They can’t hear you! I just want you to know what happened, so pay attention!”
Temi watched, sick to his stomach, as King Demi drank his glass of pineapple juice to the last drop…including the terrible poison that had been laced with the drink!
He belched, making his daughter giggle happily.
And Temidayo watched, and he died inside…
If he could, if he had not been a floating spirit being shown bits of the pieces of Dayo, he would have cried!
As it were, his soul just died…and bleak fury filled every core of his heart as he watched the betrayal of his father…and knew his father was going to die![stextbox id=”info” caption=”JOIN US ON WHATSAPP“]
