THE INNOCENT WITCH
Success came home an hour after i ate
the food and i told her about
how jacky ate my food and how Mr ogoh
was kind enough to help me by giving me food from his house.
Success didn’t seem to care. She just
rushed to the kitchen to cook
our evening meal before my parents
came back from the farm.
When our parents got back, i told them about Mr ogoh giving me food
when jacky ate mine. I didn’t tell them
about success leaving the
house. I didn’t want her to get in trouble
so i told them success was
sleeping so i didn’t want to wake her when jacky ate my food. My
parents were thankful for the help and
decided to thank Mr ogoh the
Later that night, after falling asleep, i had
a dream. I saw my self among a group of people wearing black
gowns. I was the youngest there
and it was so scary. I looked around and
saw Mr ogoh there. He came to
me and i cried for him to take me home.
He told me not to worry that i was now among special people and that
they would make all my wishes and
requests come true. This made me
stop crying. I saw it as an opportunity to
help my family, so i asked
them to make my father rich. They gave me a calabash and asked me
to put it under my parents
bamboo bed. They told me that it would
make us rich. They also warned
me not to tell anybody about them and
the calabash, or my father would die.
I accepted the calabash then i woke up.
At first, i thought it was
just a dream but then i saw an identical
calabash by my bed.
I usually slept beside success and she was still asleep so i tip-toed
out of our room. I took the calabash to my
parents room and put it
under their bed.
The next morning, i was so excited and
happy about what happened. I was so proud of my self for supposedly
helping my family. Before going
to the farm, my mom had taken me to Mr
ogoh’s house to thank him for
his help the previous day.
They had no clue what he had done to their innocent kid. If only they knew.
