The Legend Of Dayo…
THE LEGEND OF DAYO
SEASON 3: THE RIVALRY
A Warning, A Sage, And A Rose
From within the folds of the hoodie, a pair of very evil blue eyes glowed as Jhon Moziz stared at Daniel Godwin with the most malevolent and wicked of all stares!
Suddenly, Daniel Godwin grabbed his neck as he began to choke!
He felt an invisible force squeezing his throat, cutting off the air supply! He gasped and choked for breath, and his face turned an ugly red as death rapidly approached!
His eyes opened wide as he fell to his knees, still choking!
Prosper Freeman jumped to his feet and rushed at Daniel Godwin, and then he looked at the spirit of Jhon Moziz with trepidation.
“Spare him, please Grand Oracle!” Prosper Freeman cried. “Would you kill a man for expressing himself with passion?”
“Any man that touches the heir to the throne of the Dayo Empire does not deserve to live!” Jhon Moziz hissed furiously from the hoodie.
“Grand Oracle, enough, please!” Ayaka Nsugbe shouted. “Leave him be! We will train Prince Temi, yes! We’ll give him a chance to prove himself! But if he fails, we will go with Daniel. Please, release him!”
Jhon Moziz flung the body of Daniel Godwin aside.
Daniel began to gasp and breathe painfully.
“Prosper Freeman!” Jhon Moziz said savagely. “You are charged to train the prince! Sage Agu Samuel, you’re charged to train the prince! Shemen Persis, you’re charged to train the prince. Do I make myself clear?”
“He’ll be trained, yes, Grand Oracle!” Prosper Freeman said softly.
“Good,” Jhon Moziz said. “I know time is of the essence, yes. I’ve stayed too long in the Rock of Redemption, and alas, my powers grow very weak every passing day. It took me the last vestiges of my will to bring myself here, and I am afraid I shall not be able to come back again for a long time because, I fear that if I expend any more power, I shall indeed die! So stop this nonsense, all of you! The Seer you consulted spoke his peace, aye, but he holds no power over the destiny of Dayo! I give you the heir, the true leader, Prince David Temidayo Dayo of Dayo! Do the right thing! Train him, get him ready and send him on his way! Any other thing you do, apart from that, puts our dear Dayo into great danger! You have been warned!”
And then he disappeared in a flash.
There was a stunned silence in the auditorium that was pungent with the scent of fear and great confusion.
Prosper Freeman sighed heavily.
“Warriors, take the prince to the house of the Sage!” he murmured softly.
Ayaka Nsugbe got to his feet shakily and looked around with scared eyes.
“The Grand Oracle has made a choice in Prince Temidayo, but alas, the Seer gave clues that hinted at Daniel Godwin! The Grand Oracle has powers given by the Creator to help the Kings of Dayo, but the Great Seer has powers to make prophecies on Dayo! Alas, we find ourselves, indeed, in a very great quandary! To go the Seer’s way, or to heed to the warnings of the Grand Oracle! So yes, we will train Prince Temidayo in the ways of our kings for the limited time he has…and we will also keep Prince Daniel Godwin on the same pedestal! We hope, and we pray, that before the appointed time, the Creator Himself will help us out of this dilemma and show us the real Chosen One.”
Temi opened his eyes slowly, and immediately tears fell down his eyes because of the acute pain that blasted through his head immediately!
He could not move his jaw because it was broken!
Dazedly, he recollected Daniel Godwin hitting him, and his young heart burned with sudden fury and despair.
“It is alright, just relax and don’t try to move,” a kind voice said somewhere beyond his vision, and then a little man with a bald head drifted into view. He came to stand beside the bed Temi was lying on, and he smiled down at him kindly.
He was one of the Keepers who had been around the table, Temi remembered. This man was wearing silky green clothing that billowed around him as he moved. There was a thin slice of a mustache on his upper lip. The corners of his eyes crinkled as he smiled.
“Your jaw got broken,” he said with a sad smile. “I’m Sage Agu Samuel. I have very particular abilities which I will use now and then to try and teach you later as demanded by the Grand Oracle. If indeed, you’re the Chosen One, you will need the skills I will impart to you.”
He sat down beside Temi on the bed and slowly reached out.
Temidayo, gripped with the intensity of the terrible pain raging through his jaw and the whole of his body, moaned and moved from the man’s hand.
“Please, be still and trust me,” Sage Agu Samuel said. “I’m going to transfer your pain to myself, and use it as a point of contact to heal you. Please hold out your hands slowly with your palms facing outward.”
Painfully, every gesture extremely difficult to accomplish because of the pain he was feeling, Temi held out his hands slowly.
Agu Samuel reached out and placed his fingertips against Temi’s, and then he shut his eyes. Temi felt a bolt of sizzling energy passing through him, and then quite suddenly he didn’t feel any pain in his jaw anymore.
Sage Agu, however, had screwed up his face with sudden pain. He suddenly removed his fingers from Temi’s hands and placed them on Temi’s jaw, massaging slowly whilst muttering some strange droning words.
Temi stared at the man with great awe when he realized that he could actually move his jaw. A moment later Sage Agu sat back, folded his hands across his laps, and smiled at Temi.
“This is so amazing!” Temi whispered with his eyes bulging with absolute awe. “That healing is totally unbelievable. Thank you, Sage Agu Samuel.”
The Sage smiled brightly then.
“It’s been a spell since I heard those words from anyone,” he said carefully. “I do believe I’m going to like you a whole lot, Prince Temidayo.”
Temi worked his jaws a couple of times, and realized it wasn’t just a trick of the mind, as he still suspected! He was really healed, and couldn’t even find a tick of pain.
“How did you do it?” he asked with confusion. “Sorcery?”
“No, my son,” Agu Samuel said. “The power of the mind! The human body has been given the ability to heal itself fast and hygienically, over time. Your broken jaw could have taken weeks, even months, to heal properly and might not have even set well. With the mind, however, you can harness the powerful nature of your body and increase the flow of positive chi that would help you heal in just seconds. My calling, therefore, is to help you master the powers of your mind to heal yourself, my prince, and that I will do gladly.”
“But is that even remotely possible?” Temi asked, awed.
“More than possible, my prince, but it is a skill, and you must be dedicated and committed, and hunger to acquire it, and it shall be yours.”
“A gift as that is as rare as it is precious,” Temi said gently. “Consider me your most ardent student ever!”
“And that, my dear son, is good news to my ears,” the old man said, and then he embraced Temi.
There was a knock on the door suddenly.
“May I come in, Sage?” came the voice of the wicked girl called Roselyn, the one that had kicked Temidayo so savagely in his nether parts.
“Yes, Rose, do come inside,” the sage called. “We’re done here anyway.”
The door opened and Rose came in.
“Top of the day to you, Sage,” she said with a little smile at Agu Samuel, but then her eyes became unfriendly when she looked at Temi. “Commander Freeman would like a word with…with this man if you’re done with him.”
‘This man, Rose?” the Sage queried with mild reproach in his voice. “He has a name, you know, and it is rude to address the prince of Dayo in such base terms.”
Her eyes blazed for a moment, and then she lowered her head with a gesture of shame.
“My apologies, Prince Temi,” she said quickly. “I’m to escort you to Commander Freeman. You are required too, Sage.”
“Alright then, Rosie,” Sage Agu said and got to his feet. “Come, Prince Temi. It seems to me our business has started already.”
Temi stood up and followed the Sage out of the room, and then out of the front door. He still could not help but marvel at the incredible healing powers of the Sage, and he kept touching his jaw as if expecting it to fall apart again and the pain to escalate.
They crossed the beautiful field toward a building near the edge of the magnificent pool of water. The Sage walked ahead quickly, and soon Temi found himself walking with Roselyn Amaefule.
“Why do you hate me so?” Temi asked quietly. “Is it because I wanted to put my amu in your otu?”
Rose looked darkly at him, her beautiful face reflecting her deep anger and hatred.
“You’ll never, ever, ever put even a finger on me, either here in this world or beyond, even if you’re the last man on earth,” she said scathingly. “I detest you with the very shadow of the soul in me! You disgust me with an intensity greater than the emission of a volcano, oh yes! And if I have ever wished for anything, if I had ever had the power to make any wish of my heart come true, believe me, I would have made you drop dead this very instant! Do you understand?”
Temi could only stare at her with absolute dismay.[stextbox id=”alert” caption=”WARNING”]Exclusive Content to http://www.aaron-ansah-agyeman.com Do not copy or share on any other site. Do not share on any WhatsApp, Facebook or Social Media page. ONLY SHARE THE LINKS TO THE STORY[/stextbox]
