Naijamedialog Pointing Hand

Dethroned - Episode 28





Dethroned - Episode 28

Written By Amah's Heart.

" Amarachi don't tell me you have a hand in this too...? Why..? Well I'm no longer surprised at anything anymore!" I uttered as I stood up and gently wiped away the dust on my wrapper.

To be sincere, I am actually not surprised to see Amarachi here. 

Infact I expected it sooner or later since I was already suspecting her to be amongst the eye witnesses. 

And inasmuch as I try to be strong for what's ahead of me, it still húrts to find out that all the people I had loved with the whole of my heart actually hāted me and also wanted my dethronement.

" Are you okay Priestess Rana...? Hope the fall wasn't too fatal on you...?" Amarachi asked with her voice laced with utmost concern and worry.

Amarachi's question disrupted my thoughts and honestly threw me off balance as it got me wondering if this was a trap too. 

" You join my enëmíes to fight against me and then you are asking after my wellbeing...? What are you hoping to achieve by doing this...?" I asked firmly whilst looking at Amarachi in amusement and bewilderment.

" I'm not working with your enëmíes my Priestess. I have been sent by the gods to pass you a message following your earlier pleas for help" Amarachi said and I scoffed unmoved by her words. 

It felt like she was only lying so as to pull at my heartstrings and then rùin me.

" Oh! quit with the lies Amarachi! So you know everything has been exposed already about Nene and Eze. I also know you are likely among them... infact I have a strong feeling in my heart that you were the eyewitness who reported Eze to the youths on the night he visited my room" I said unapologetically. 

Honestly I no longer trust anyone. I mean if Eze and Nene could actually plot my downfall within close range then anything is surely possible.

" I'm like your guardian angel Priestess Rana... I am the spirit lady who is assigned by the gods to guide and protect you here on earth. So make it easier for me to carry out my assignment, I had to stay by your side as a servant maiden" Amarachi explained sincerely but I wasn't convinced at all.

Everything that Amarachi is explaining seems genuine and surprising to me. 

It still didn't change the fact that I am in doubt and feeling suspicious of what her true motives are. 

who in my shoes wouldn't be..?

" I'm sorry but I find it so hard to actually believe you Amarachi... If all that you've said is actually true then why didn't you tell me all this sooner...?"

Amarachi sighed heavily knowing that it is going to be hard to request trust from a wounded woman like me

Already she feels sad merely looking at me but sadly she couldn't stop the inevitable from happening because it was i who had sadly, yet unknowingly chosen that path.

" The ways of the spirit are entirely different from the human way of thinking. Priestess Rana...you already know that it is forbidden for a messenger of the gods to reveal his or her assignment of purpose to earthlings." Amarachi said as she paused to inhale and exhale deeply 

Surprisingly, all this while we were conversing Nene was just standing and staring at us without uttering a word. Eze on the other hand, kept roaming about unable to see his way.

" Priestess Rana I love you beyond how a servant would love her mistress... that's why if I was actually permitted to tell you about the future... then I would have surely revealed to you all of Eze's evïl schemes as well as the path you had blindly chosen to trail.

Hearing that, I was so puzzled!

" Are you telling me that you knew about all about Eze and Nene's schemes against me and yet you stayed quiet...?" I asked quite shocked by the revelation 

" Yes Priestess Rana... I knew all about it but like I said earlier I am not permitted to tell or forewarn you about the future.. and for that I'm sincerely very sorry" Amarachi said inaudibly and I could vividly see the sincerity in her eyes.

" Then why were you standing with Jack on that fateful day...? Tell me the truth Amarachi because I never believed that story you told me about it been for directions sake" I asked with my eyes suspiciously fixed on Amarachi. I needed to be fully convinced.

" You're right my Priestess... it wasn't for directions sake. That day I had to bribe Jack over to my side so he could divulge all he knew about Nene and her plans" Amarachi said to me and before I could reply, Nene cut in fuming all over

" That backbiter of a man! Now I understand why he was behaving so strange after the night we both witnessed your verdict on my husband!" Nene blurted out before she could stop herself. 

From what she uttered earlier, I now know the answer to one of my puzzling questions. Oh! so it was actually Jack and not Amarachi like I had assumed..?

" Look who is calling another person a backbiter. Nene is it not the same you who had the audacity to report your own husband..? you exposed the verdict I placed upon him despite knowing how that would endanger him" I said aloud whilst rolling my eyes in annoyance

Nene smirked before she scornfully begun divulging more shocking revelations probably to get back at me 

" Well it was actually a set up which as a weakling you woefully fell for! With the way you were so in love with my husband I know you would do anything to set him free from dying..." Nene uttered smirking and I nodded in agreement because she is right indeed!

" You're right Nene and that is one of my greatest mistake and regrets... it was trusting too easily and loving blindly... No wonder sëx was the driving force of my relationship with Eze" I said with an emotional tone. 

" Of course it's simply because my husband loves making love to me and me alone. And you know what Rana...? from the very start, we had presumed that your virginity was the source of your powers and I had to plead with Eze to lure you into having sex with him... I was so disappointed when it afterwards turned out to be untrue..." Nene told me

"...we also thought it could be the dreadlocks on your head but after Eze cut off some part while you were resting in his arms after a long sëx night, it happens that your power didn't actually lie on your hair.." Nene added.

As Nene said all of this, I turned to look at Eze roaming about. 

I feel pãinéd as I remembered how he sexually brutalized me those nights. 

Nene continued regardless of my obviously sour mood

" ...anyways that's now past tense Rana.. I'm glad that I still got to know the source of your powers and I have even disposed of it... and as for that Jack I will so deal with him after I'm out of here"

As Nene said all of this, renewed anger overwhelmed me again. 

I begun feeling so foolish for being so blinded by my love for Eze. 

I feel so pained for allowing my emotions deprive me of so many things; my heart, my virginity, my powers, my child and soon it will be my crown alongside the liberty to live in the village I've grown up in for all my life on earth.

As I thought of all my lost glory, I was unconsciously raging hot in ánger and my eyes flashed terribly reddish which signifies intense dānger.

" You need to calm down Priestess Rana. The message I was sent to deliver to you is that you are not permitted to harm them just yet... that's why I had to stop you earlier from making a big mistake" Amarachi said in an attempt to calm me down but I was already out of control

" Why! hasn't the gods seen all they made me go through..? I refuse to listen to them this time... after all they watched me lose my child amidst all my pleas to the...!" I thundered but Amarachi's next words interrupted my words midway 

" Well you can go ahead and do what your mind tells you but bear in mind Priestess Rana that every disobedience comes with a price!" Amarachi concluded and then she disappeared.  

Only the gods knows what the price would likely be..? but what more do I even have to lose again when I have practically lost everything already...?

I am now left in a crossroad of succumbing to my justifiable anger or letting it all go.
