THE SECOND SIGHT
An eerie cemetery.
The moonlight shone on the tombstones in a frightening way.
Perching on the tombstones, in a strange deadly formation of two on each headstone, were the eerie white crows. None was perching on the ground, two on each stone, exact distance between them.
And as Yaw Boat raised his head further, he saw that they formed a crude inverted cross in their arrangement.
They were in a long vertical line, with a lower horizontal line, making it uncannily like an inverted cross. Their eyes glowed a myriad of colours, and he knew they were inhabited by evil demons witnessing the final hours of an Unblind with glee.
The Tim Swallows demon was slithering on the grass, and then it reared up high, regarding Yaw Boat with its evil eyes, and then it slowly began to transform, the demon receding slowly as the human figure of Tim Swallows took over.
Finally, he was standing in front of Boat, quite naked, and smiling mockingly. The bloodied mark of the beast blazed on his forehead: 666!
His eyes were still blood-red and rectangular, and when he spoke it was still in that rumbling, ear-shattering voice of the demon.
“I’m going to bury you alive, Unblind!” he said in an enraged voice. “Your grave is yonder, see? I’m going to put you in there, and cover you with earth, and watch you die! But first things first! I’m sure you’re wondering why I have such powers over you, and why you obviously doesn’t seem to possess your powers, huh? You’re wondering how I could be in a room with Christians and yet be unharmed by their all-powerful force-field, as you call it, don’t you?”
Yaw Boat felt dizzy. He was losing too much blood, and he could barely move, but he forced himself to stand upright, and then he tottered as he looked Tim Swallows in the eye.
“Yep, it did cross my mind,” Boat said softly.
Tim Swallows bellowed with laughter, and he pointed hands that were still talons, as sharp as knives, towards Yaw Boat.
“Oh, I do like your spunk, Unblind!” he said. “I do like your spunk a whole lot! Well, I’ll tell you, and give you some peace before you die! Read your Bible, you shit-face. The book of Matthew, chapter five, verses twenty-seven and twenty-eight. You remember it?”
Yaw Boat forced out a bitter smile.
“I don’t read the Bible much,” he said weakly. “I just concentrate on tearing evil bastards like you apart!”
Again the demon laughed.
“Nice, nice, Unblind! Did I tell you I like your verve? I do like it a whole lot, sport!” he said and slapped his thigh. “Well, that quotation simply speaks about adultery, you know. It was your own Lord who said it, and it states, inter alia, that any man that looks at a woman and desires her has already committed adultery and blah, blah, blah. So that is it! By kissing Esi Eduafo, you fell into that sin! And you know there’s no sin more terrible than the sin against the body, which is purported to be the temple of your Lord.”
Yaw Boat nodded once as he slowly began to get the picture.
“I see you’re getting it!” Tim Swallows said and took a step closer. “So, the moment you kissed her, your self-doubt began because you thought of sin, and that was a very bad thing! Self-doubt is the Christian’s worst enemy! They commit fornication, adultery, look at people with envy, and even gossip, yes, simple gossiping, and then they are filled with so much doubt that they become useless! I can’t touch them, yes, because they still have the shield, but in the same way they’re useless against me because of self-doubt!”
“So that’s it,” Boat said weakly. “Those Christians don’t really believe they could be forgiven for their sins if they pray sincerely, and they walk around still filled with doubt and guilt.”
“Yes, yes, yes!” Tim Swallows shouted. “And because of that their faith dwindle, and they become useless! We pick up on their guilty trains of thought, and we feed on it, making them realize that they’re still sinners and far from the glory of their Heavenly Master, and so they become so filled with guilt that they become powerless!”
“Just like me,” Boat said softly.
“Yes, just like you, old sport!” Tim Swallows said, and he was now standing quite near to Boat. “You kissed Esi, and suddenly you felt you sinned, and I picked up on your guilty train of thoughts, fed on it without you knowing it, and that made me gain the upper-hand on you. And now I’m going to kill you. You lusted after her, kid, and because of that you sinned big time! You have already committed fornication with her in your heart! But then again, your filthy dick has always been your cross, hasn’t it?”
Tim Swallows moved forward, and his right hand thrust toward Boat quickly. His fingers were like sharp knives that smashed into Boat’s stomach, and began to dig in, puncturing the skin and drilling into him.
The pain was so excruciating that Boat moaned pitifully, making the demon laugh uproariously.
“Ohhhh, I like that grunt of pain!” Tim Swallows shouted. “I do like that a whole lot, buddy! Now you feel what my ancestors in the Legion felt! Die, mother-fucker, die! I’m going to rip out your intestines, and then I’m going to bury you in that grave!”
The blood was pouring down Yaw Boat’s thighs and as he tried to move back Tim Swallows placed his left claw-hand around Boat’s neck and drew him forward relentlessly as he pushed those knife-like talons into Boat’s stomach, tearing him up.
The pain was not like anything Yaw Boat had ever felt, and suddenly he felt the fury sizzling in him, driving through his guts at the wickedness of these evil beings who thought they could lay everything righteous to waste!
Even through his pain, even when he felt the sharp talons tearing up his intestines, Yaw Boat lifted his head slowly and glared at the demon, and then he began to laugh through his pain.
Tim Swallows looked at Boat, suddenly shocked, and then he withdrew his hand from Boat’s stomach. The pain was sharp, and Boat grimaced. Tim Swallows now aimed his knife-claws at Boat’s throat, but Yaw Boat grabbed his hand.
Tim Swallows pushed harder, trying to tear out Boat’s throat, but Yaw Boat was holding on tightly.
“You can’t do anything!” Tim Swallows screamed, and now he was rapidly changing back into the demon. “You kissed Esi lustfully, and so you have sinned and come short of glory! In your heart you have committed sin against your body, and divine protection is far from you!”
“Says who?” Yaw Boat hissed angrily.
In his anger, his fear was gone, replaced by only wrath, and the will to destroy.
“Says the Bible!” Tim Swallows screamed. “I read it to you! You have no power!”
His lower body was now a massive anaconda, and he curled it around Yaw Boat from his ankles right to his chest, and he was trying to squeeze the breath out of Yaw Boat.
“I kissed her, sure, and yeah, I wanted to screw the hell out of her damn pussy!” Yaw Boat hissed angrily. “But who are you, demon, to show me my sins? It is only God, who can judge me! I remember David killed a man just to sleep with the man’s hot wife, and do you know what the fuck happened?”
“No, no, no!” the demon bellowed, and again half of its face was Tim Swallows, and the half was the head of an ugly anaconda. “You have sinned! David was different! You can’t compare yourself to David!”
“I’m better than David, asshole!” Boat screamed right back. “I just wanted to screw that girl, you know. Sheer lust, sheer fornication. I haven’t killed any woman’s husband! David did that, and yet the Lord Jesus Christ came through David’s line! I have been called to serve the one and only Almighty God, and until He calls me, my days will never be over, and just like Job, my soul shall not be touched by the likes of you! I am the Unblind, filled with the might and power and glory of God…and I have dominion over you, demon, by the blood that was shed by Jesus Christ on Mount Golgotha…and you can’t tell me what God hasn’t told me!”
And Yaw Boat began to glow!
The demon hissed with terror and unwound itself from Boat in a frenzy, and it began to slither away fast. But it had been touched by the force-field, and part of it was now badly sizzled!
Yaw Boat was basking in the glow as his body began to heal!
He stopped bleeding and his wounds closed up fast as the power of the glow healed him.
And after a minute, he stood tall, strong and terrible!
Only the holes in his clothes bore witness to the fact that his body had almost been ripped to pieces only a minute ago.
When he opened his eyes the moon was gone, and he was in absolute darkness.
It was so dark and gloomy that he could not see anything!
He knew this was no ordinary darkness though!
The demons were rendering him blind so that they could flee.
He could feel their pungent fear, and hear their frantic movements in the dark, but he could not see a thing!
Yaw Boat lifted his right hand slowly.
“And when the battle was fierce Joshua lifted his voice and prayed loudly, asking the Lord to make the sun stop in the sky over Gibeon, and the Lord listened, and for a whole day the sun didn’t go down!”
Yaw Boat took purposeful steps forward in the darkness, and then he spoke loudly again.
“Oh, Lord, against You, and only You, have I sinned, and for that, accept my cries of remorse, and forgive my transgressions, my Lord!” Yaw Boat shouted, and then he dropped to his knees and clamped his hands behind his back. “Forgive me, Lord, for my sins are as scarlet as blood in Your presence!”
He felt the peace transcending over him, and felt the calm power buffeting him, and he knew his prayers were accepted. Still kneeling, he raised his right hand.
“And just as Joshua prayed, I pray this night, Lord!” he said calmly. “As you listened to Joshua, so will You listen to me with the ear of a loving father, and my faith tells me so. At this moment, let the sun chase the darkness away, so that I can foul the evil that lays Your ways to waste in Your own church. As is with my faith, I have prayed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ…and I know it is done!”
And the sun came up!
It wasn’t a total sun that covered the whole area, no, because beyond the cemetery Yaw Boat could see that darkness still enveloped the rest of the world.
But the sun had come up over the cemetery, shining brightly!
And he saw them…
The crows were grouped around the slimy anaconda demon!
Again, from the neck down it was a long, vicious snake, but its head was that of a terrified Tim Swallows. The mark of the beast was blazing on his forehead as he took a frantic look back.
It had been badly singed by Boat’s force-field, and now it was wounded badly. It could not slither, or change quickly. The crows had grabbed his body and trying futilely to pull him away.
The sunlight freaked out the demons inside the crows, and they began to fly away in all direction.
“You will stop, now!” Yaw Boat hissed, and the birds were instantly thrown back to the ground forcibly as if by an unseen hand, and they thrashed weakly on the ground.
The demons in them were shrieking with fear.
The Tim Swallows anaconda was thrashing weakly, and on his face was a terror that only fuelled Boat’s resolve.
“Please, don’t do this,” Tim Swallows pleaded, raising his right hand weakly in a gesture of meek submission.
“Death Clouds, to me!” Yaw Boat whispered with absolute fire in his voice.
And they appeared…
