“Your husband cursed him! Yea he cursed him” The seer shouted as his red liquidy eyes stared in air to no particular thing.
“I dont understand,” Fred’s mum yelled in confusion as she turned to look at Fred who was utterly shocked.
“Yes! Your husband sold your son’s spirit and generation to the dark world to get richier!” The seer spilled the beans.
Fred and his mum looked bemused! Not knowing what do next. They couldnt understand what the seer was talking about.But anywei they had come for help and they knew their help lied with the seer.
“Help us please….please” Fred’s mum pleaded as Fredd remained silent and
perturbed by his father’s greedy for wealth.
“Woman….take this,give it your son to drink for 90 days!” The seer started, “But this drug is soo strong. As soon as he starts taking it all the wealth your husband has ammassed will all go…you and your husband will go back to zero!” Continued the seer who showed alot of seriousness.
The consequence sunk into their heads with uttermost shock! Going back to zero? What of the dignity and respect they commanded? What of the companies and cars? All will go?
It was going to be a really hard times for them.But they had no otherwise. They were ready to suffer to exonorate Fred from the chains of dark spirits and so they took the medicene and left for Nairobi through the night.
Each time, the seer’s words crossed Fred’s mind he felt pain and all he could do was bite his lower lip, swallow bitterly and mourn from inside.
He felt much hatred for his dad. But he had only one option,the option of drinking the herb from the seer.
He held the herb in his hands as the driver accelarated and concentrated on the steering.
He gazed at the backseat and saw the mum was deep asleep. He thought for a while and drank all the herb!
For a while nothing happened and he drifted to sleep. Just then, he felt a drumming sound in his stomach. Then the desparate cries of cats. The shocking thing was that, all this was happening to his knowledge only. Not the driver or even the mun knew what was going on.
“I need to relieve myself” Fred shouted.
“You are shouting Sir,” the driver said as he brought the car to a halt by the roadside.
“I am shouting?” Asked Fred as he alighted and ran to a nearby dark bush to relieve himself.
He went to the bush to pee. To his greatest shock,snake like creatures started to come out from his anus. This made him to scream for help prompting his mum and the driver to come running to his rescue.
As they arrived at the scene Fred was lying unconsciously on the group. His mum got terrified and almost screamed. He feared for her son.
They desparately carried him to the car just to find their car missing mysteriously.
Their worry even worsened. Every car they tried to stop got passed them with a horrific speed as for many thought they are highway robbers.
The numbing cold was harsh to them. Fred was still unconscious and was slowly loosing his breath.
The love of mum was evident as she removed her jacket to cover her son.
Just then, a car stopped just near to where they were. From inside a middle aged woman asked them,
“Accident? May i help you ?”
And almost immediately,Fred was carried into the car and drove towards Nairobi.
Fred’s mum narrated the story to this God sent samaritan.She felt sorry for them.
Fred was silently, still in his stupor.His mum constantly checked his breath . She was worried.Worried of loosing her only son.
