THE INNOCENT WITCH
Kelvin was about to kiss me again when i
felt someone was watching
us. I turned to see who and that was
when i got the biggest shock of my life. My heart started beating so fast,
it felt like i was having a
heart attack. Standing by kelvin’s gate
was no other than Mr ogoh!.
And he was smiling at me.
Kelvin noticed my attention was on some one else at his gate so he turned too.
“grand dad, i told you not to come out.
Dad doesn’t want you walking
around” i heard kelvin say. But it was like
he was far away because
his voice felt distant to my ears. “grand dad?” i asked no one in particular.
I see kelvin turn to me and
ask me if i was alright, but he was just a
blur. Kelvin raised his
hand and wiped the tears that i didn’t
notice were already falling. Mr ogoh walked toward us and i started
walking backwards trying to
get away from him as fast as i could but
my brain’s commands were not
registering to my feet. And then i felt his
hand touch me which sent a shiver than my spine and that was when
my feet started moving. And i
Kelvin ran after me but i entered a taxi
before he could reach me. I
looked back and saw him chasing after the car while shouting my name.
I just told the taxi driver to drive faster.
I wiped my tears when i got to the house.
It was already night and my
sister would be home and i didn’t want
her to see me crying. I would not be able to explain the reason for my
tears. So, putting on a poker
face i walked into the house.
The scene i witnessed when i entered
the house was heart wrenching.
My sis was on the floor in a pool of her blood, screaming. Mr James
was trying to calm her down as our gate
man called an ambulance on the
land line. Mr James’ face was pure
As i looked at the kind couple who had cared for me all this while,
Mr ogoh’s smiling face kept flashing in my
mind’s eye. Once again, i
have caused calamity.
An ambulance came and carried my
sister. Mr James had accompanied her to the hospital. I didn’t follow them. As
soon as the ambulance left,
i ran upstairs to pack my things inside a
suit case. I couldn’t stay
here anymore. Mr ogoh had found me
and now my sister’s family was in danger.
Before leaving, i wrote a letter explaining
that i had to leave for
their safety. I was a witch and now i had
caused my sister her baby.
Then i called ada who gave me some money which i used to go back to
I was now ready to face my past.
