The Legend Of Dayo…
THE LEGEND OF DAYO
SEASON 5: THE ONE
The Dayo Empire was beautiful!
Temi, wearing the Mimic Artefact, was absolutely shocked at such beauty!
The buildings were beautiful and tall, the lights resplendent and amazing! The vehicles, trains, and streets all filled him with wonder! This was a level of development he had never imagined possible!
He looked at the skyscrapers with wonder and looked at the stores and business hub areas with incredulity. It was indeed a most sobering experience for him as he sat beside Okakuo and they rode through the cities and provinces of Dayo.
Okakuo Agbons was dressed like an old man, complete with a wild growth of grey hair and moustache. They carried fake documents that identified them as a farmer and his son travelling to the city to offer atonement to the Creator of All Things in the temples.
Their story was credible because the Dayon race was a blessed group that rarely suffered diseases and physical deformities. Because they were responsible for peace and health on Earth, they were spared the extremities of ill-health. To see the hunchbacked, deformed body of Temi, as portrayed by the Mimic Artefact, pointed to the fact that the family had been cursed by the Creator, the only healing was a pardon from the Creator.
People therefore steered away from them as much as possible, and stared surreptitiously as they passed.[stextbox id=”alert” caption=”WARNING”]Exclusive Content to http://www.aaron-ansah-agyeman.com Do not copy or share on any other site.

It took three days to journey from the Haven to the heart of Dayo. They mostly took train rides, which were mostly devoid of much passengers and warriors.
Temi noticed that most of the billboards and paintings featured a terrible picture of Temitayo Anubi standing over a gargoyle-like King Demi with a sword. The people had been so manipulated by the evil sorcery of Leke Olugbade Bally that they saw Temitayo Anubi as the liberator, and King Demi as the horrible king who had made a pact with evil and killed his own mother.
Temi’s heart burned with wrath and sadness at this great injustice done to the memory of his father.
He had to control his fury enough to stay focused on the plan. Soon, there would be redemption, and those evil beasts would pay a great price for their treachery and betrayal.
And then there was the security.
Everywhere they went warriors were always on patrol, keeping a keen lookout. They were at vantage points with highly-developed communication gadgets, and Temi knew that any sign of trouble would be met with a great amassing of warriors. Indeed, he now fully understood why the Mimic Artefact was such an important part of his mission.
Finally, on the evening of the third day, they reached the heart of the Dayo Empire by train. When they got down at the station, Okakuo led him through many alleyways and coach rides till they came to the Dayo Square.
Temi was appalled to see how secure it was. The entrance to the Square was guarded by hundreds of warriors, and behind them, stretching for about three kilometres, were more warriors lined up!
They skirted the four entrances, and all of them were heavily-guarded. There was simply no way anybody was going to get to the Rock of Redemption without passing through that gauntlet of warriors!
“You see how impossible it is to get to the Royal DayoSword?” Okakuo asked, his voice filled with despair.
Temi replied softly.
“It is not impossible,” he said as his eyes surveyed the expanse of warriors. “My fear is that I will have to shed the blood of so many warriors before I can get the Royal DayoSword and free my Grand Oracle. That, indeed, makes my heart sad. It has to be tonight though, and I have to find a way to avoid that bloodshed.”
“The way I see it, it is unavoidable, my Lord,” Okakuo said sadly.
“Ah, but there’s always a way, Okakuo, son of Agbons,” the Heir Apparent said. “There is always a way.”
The law barred any hotel to be operate within the vicinity of the Dayo Square.
And so they found a motel a long stretch away. Okakuo ordered a wonderful meal of rice balls and palm nut soup, and Temi enjoyed it immensely.
However, Okakuo could only peck at his meal.[layerslider id=”7″] Get BORN BAD for Ghc 20

“Enjoy your meal, my brother,” Temi said as he ate with gusto.
Okakuo smiled sadly.
“I’m worried about you, my Lord,” he said with a great sigh. “Please, let me be at your side as you make your way to the Rock. The warriors are too many even for yourself.”
“Don’t worry, my brother,” Temi said. “If indeed I am the Heir Apparent, and I believe I am, and it is my call to free Dayo, then I believe that what will be, will be, and I have nothing to fear. You will follow the plan to the letter. You will wait for me here. In the morning, you will take me to my mother and sister in the palace!”
Okakuo looked at the young prince with great worry, and then he nodded.
“Yes, my Lord,” he said softly. “What will be will certainly be!”
It was precisely an hour past midnight when Prince David Temidayo Dayo, the Heir Apparent of the Dayo Empire, stepped out into the deserted streets of the heart of Dayo.
He was dressed in all black tight-fitting clothes and black soft-soled canvas shoes. The Swords of Destiny were across his back, and he was ready for the first call of Destiny.
“May the Creator be with you, my Lord,” Okakuo Abgons whispered behind the door.
“May it be so,” Temi said, and then he began to run across the cobbled stones.
His plan of action was simple: he would use the roofs of the buildings, high above the ground above the warriors guarding the Royal DayoSword in the Square.[layerslider id=”8″] Get RHYTHMS OF LOVE for Ghc 20

He leapt high and held on to a beam protruding from the middle of a building; it had obviously been part of an awning once. He spun once around the beam and then launched himself upward, caught the edge of the roof, and dragged himself up unto the concrete roof.
Temi began to run fast, gathering speed and momentum like a part of a spirit, jumping from one roof at an amazing speed to the next roof, as graceful as a mountain cat, defying space and surface.
He was a finely-tuned machine as the spirits of kings and the hand of wonderful Creator encompassed him, and higher and greater he soared, leaping and landing, a dark shadow in the night sky!
As expected, Dayo Square was greatly lighted, the warriors attentive, as Temi soared high above their heads in the sky.
Finally, there were no longer any buildings, and nowhere else to go but down…
Temi leapt one final time, and then he came down slowly and landed in the heart of Dayo…Dayo Square!
And so, as the Legend went, almost twenty years to the day his father was cruelly murdered on the same spot, the son gracefully landed again as he came home to his calling and to his destiny!
A shrill alarm went up in the air when he landed. Suddenly, there was a frenzied movement of many warriors as they converged on the Prince of Dayo.
Their swords were drawn and their poisoned arrows fixed into taut bows.
Temidayo removed his Mimic Artefact and pushed it slowly on his right middle finger. The first warriors who were bearing down on him suddenly faltered as they saw the short, stunted hunchback transforming into the tall, strapping, well-built and incredibly handsome prince.
And there it was, the huge Rock of Redemption!
Hanging in the air above it, and above the olive plant that had only three leaves left, was the amazing, shimmering Royal DayoSword!
And inside this rock was the body of Jhon Moziz, the Grand Oracle who had looked after him, and protected him, through thick and thin!
Through the years, with the very last breath in his body and defying all the odds, this strange man had been there, shaping him, educating him, and protecting him!
This was destiny. This was the Call.
Here, right now, was another definitive moment in the Legend of Dayo.
Prince Temidayo spread out his hands, and almost in a slow-motion frame by frame movement, the two Swords of Destiny came out of their scabbards, swirled in the air, and their hilts landed in the hands of the prince and fitted snugly.

And just at that moment, one of the leaves of the olive branch fluttered down on the rock, leaving only two!
The Empire of Dayo, it seemed, was nearer death than anyone knew!
“Olis!” Prince Temidadyo whispered ominously and felt the power of impartation surging through him relentlessly, and then he crouched in a battle stance as the warriors bore down on him…
