A story by Ike®de barrister
I HAVE BEEN A VICTIM
When i climbed up of unconsciousness i felt my body, senses and every organ of my being intact but i could not control my actions.
It felt like i was imprisoned in myself. I could see my friends and every movement that took place in the environment but my mind was succumbed by a strong force greater than my will so i could not do anything on my own.
Some of the guys stared at me in a fixed keen gaze as if they had been up to some mischief.
Some appeared like they wanted to whisper something to me. I only hope i did not appear same way to them because it was such a stupid and weird appearance.
The head of the runaway guy laid at a distance and gazed at us with unclosed eyes. His eye balls diminished my every effort to take control of my container.
The guards appeared more scary and disgusting at close sight. Human blood sterns were all over upon them and they smelled like death. I saw Bella laying down a distance from me, she had not regained consciousness or perhaps something worse than what we have been subjected to was upon her humanity. I tried very had to just move closer to her and find out if she was ok but the electrical charges from my mind was completely disintegrated from my embodiment. I couldn’t even lift a finger than to move the whole body.
When i realized i had all my capabilities,except that i couldn’t lift my body, i decided to use it to my advantage. I scanned the environment studied every movement of the guards and what i realized was astonishing.
We were confounded in a strange place, the outside smell that emanated behind us tasted like rotten fruits. The ground was moist with a substance i was oblivious of its nature but i suspected it was voluntarily put there by the guards for a purpose. The light was mounted above us and its brightness were upon us in a circle. The darkness gathered around us and due to the brightness of the light, vision in the dark was mission impossible, only creeking and tweeking sounds echoed around us and the honking noise of frogs and water flies announced the presence of trench or a choked gutter.
And most interestingly they were circumspect in the way they treated every single person they abducted. They touched not a single hair after a purification ritual. I watched them go through every process on a new comer they just admitted.
He was stout and gentle, very calm and looked much like a coward.
After they finished the ritual on him they pushed him into the assembly of the death flocks.
Joe rolled and groaned and pushed his body close and sat just besides me.
I said in my head, “stupid coward here you are”.
Some minutes after he sat down i watched him frantically, he was of the unusual characters, the ritual seemed ineffective on him because i saw him move one or two times and eventually he pulled something from his pocket. I watched him like a hypnotized fool as he poured something in the nature of a powder in his palm and blew it in my face. It land on my face, entered any hole that was opened- my mouth, eyes and nostril. Holes i had no idea was opened. It tasted very salty and bitter.
I was about to yell at him for such a disgusting act of his when something struck me.
How was he able to do all that, the movements, unlike us he was acting normal even after the rituals.
I whispered very low to him..
Me: what the hell was that and how did u do that and where the f*ck have u been and..
Joe: shhhhhh!! Not another word.
He commanded, and as if he had put a spell on me, i obeyed like a slave and from there we communicated with each other only with the movement of our lips, airwaves and gestures.
Joe: i will explain later, just act normal like the others. But there is something we have to do, this is salt and ashes, it breaks their spells, so we have to awaken as many guys as we can. These guards also have spells that protect them but we can overcome them.
I squeezed his loins and looked into his eyes.
Me: Joe, what are you talking about and i presume you have a plan, because the last guy who tried to sabotage them is right here with his head disconnected from his body so please if you don’t have a plan let’s just die a peaceful death. In Fact i would love to die without knowing it so please unless you have a tangible escape plan, put me back to my zombie state.
Joe: man just stop being naive and just play along.
Within some minutes of secretly awaking most of the guys from their hypnosis, Joe presented the next line of action. Though the guards were very alert but they never suspected any mischief among us. They looked, stared but never saw anything.
We communicated among ourselves with a piece of paper. He wrote his plan on the paper and we read it interns, passing it around without any casual movement. No one had an objection in the plan, it was irrefutable.
We all showed our consent by nodding our heads in confirmation.
