When Jeff left Austin and Melinda, Osoba assembled Melinda and the others to some corner of the hospital for a chat. “It is obvious we are going to spend the night in this hospital. I think we should have a plan on how to destroy the Circle of Stars and Michael once and for all. I have thought about it; we have three major objectives right now. We are to set Simon free, destroy the elders of the Circle of Stars and to get down to Michael’s grave to send that scorpion against him and his followers. If anyone has an idea about how we can achieve all these, please tell us.” “You left out destroying Michael,” said Melinda. “Yes, we have to destroy Michael,” Osoba concurred. “We need to use the information we have against these people. The man we burnt told us fire is one thing they dread; we have to find a way to use it against them. We also know that Michael is in Simon’s body,” said Austin.

“That is not all; Simon wants us to set him free, so he could take the battle to them…” “How did you learn that?” asked Etim. “We were attacked after you and Austin left in search of a drugstore or a hospital. I and Osoba heard Simon calling for help; he wants to be set free so he can fight them himself. He has been inside, he must know some things,” Melinda explained. “We are not going to drive down there and ask them to release Simon or start a fight, are we? We have to have a battle plan,” said Verah. “We are going to burn their temple down,” announced Osoba. “How do you intend to do that?” asked Austin. “Melinda your police friends will be our cover up. Do you think they would like to help?” “I have to talk to Jeff first, I don’t know if he would like the idea.”

At this point Jeff returned with food packs and drinks and handed them to Austin and Melinda. Melinda took her own food and drink and dragged Jeff to a corner to seek his help in the fight against Michael and the Circle of Stars. By this time some policemen had helped Osoba with driving his bus over to the hospital. While they ate their food, and Melinda spoke with Jeff, the elderly woman who had helped bring Melinda and Ochuma to the hospital came back to check how they were doing. They had come to know her as Doctor Briggs, a retired medical doctor. Her brother, doctor Emeka, was the owner of the hospital.

While they bantered and laughed, Ochuma staggered out of his hospital room and announced, “The shadow scorpion is here! It is here! And this time it is not alone, there are many infernal spirits with it!”

His words jolted all of them and they stood to their feet, their eyes darting about. Seeing their tense attitude to Ochuma’s declaration, Mrs. Briggs asked Melinda, “What is the problem? What is a shadow scorpion?” “It is an evil spirit which has been hunting us. It comes like a scorpion in shadow or smoke form, and now it is not alone. Madam you have to evacuate this hospital. You have to get away now!” “No Melinda! We should rather leave! Let us draw it away from the hospital or people will get hurt,” Etim suggested. “No way! Not in my brother’s hospital! Demons are not allowed here! And none of you is going anywhere! Sikirat!” shouted Doctor Briggs. A young nurse, Sikirat by name, ran to Doctor Briggs.  “Go call Usman! Tell him to come here now! We have some demons to chase!” doctor Briggs ordered.

 Sikirat took off to go call Usman. “Madam you are making a mistake, you should let us go; you have no idea what these demons can do,” said Osoba. “Young man calm down! You have no idea what Usman will do to them when he gets here!” “Who is Usman?” Verah asked. “Our prayer band leader in church; he likes to deal with evil spirits. Just wait for him to come.”

While they all waited for the spirits to manifest themselves, Anna, a much loved nurse in the hospital, came out of one of the wards whistling happily, she had no clue what was going on in the hospital. She was surprised to see policemen holding their guns as if they were waiting to battle robbers. She stood wondering what was going on. Ochuma saw it, above Anna’s head was hanging on the ceiling a giant black scorpion. He pointed at it and shouted at Anna, “Run! Nurse run!”

The others saw it and joined Ochuma to tell Anna to run; Anna did not understand what they were shouting about, instead she began to turn left and right wondering what they were pointing at. Jeff fired a shot at the scorpion, but the bullet went right through it; then Anna lifted her head to see what was on the ceiling, the shadow scorpion dropped itself and landed on Anna’s face and crept into her mouth.

Anna shouted and dropped to the floor. After a few minutes she slowly began to drag herself up. When she stood to her feet, her eyes were just hollow, filled with darkness and black smoke. When the policemen and some patients in the hospital saw her eyes they took off. Even Doctor Briggs inched away towards the door. Of all the policemen that had been in that hospital all night, only Jeff stood his ground. Seeing it had come to an open confrontation Melinda rallied her friends, “Prayer is what we do best! It has kept us till now. Friends, time has come to pray down heaven!”

They all began to pray, hurling all sorts of spiritual weapons at the evil spirit in Anna. Anna didn’t move, she just stood still staring at them. After the evil spirit in Anna had had enough of their praying, it moved Anna towards them. They all moved toward the exit door. Then they heard a male voice speaking in tongues and shouting the name of Jesus. When the voice got closer, Anna began to shake her head as though she was being hit by invisible arrows. She got really pissed and then did the unthinkable, even movie guys wouldn’t have thought of it, Anna opened her mouth wide and some black liquid and scorpions began to jump out of it like frogs.

The sight was creepy. Then it dawned on Osoba that Anna may have been incubating many of them on her inside. “We have to kill this nurse! She is incubating these things!” he said to Austin.  “No if we kill her the scorpion will move into another person! Don’t kill the girl,” replied Austin.

When Usman, who was speaking in tongues on his way into the hospital, saw Anna’s face, the scorpions and black liquid substance all coming out of Anna’s mouth, he ran back in fear. In his many years of chasing demons, he hadn’t seen anything like that. When Verah saw Usman run back, she stepped forward, that was about the first action she took in that hospital. She pointed at Anna and all the scorpions which were moving towards them and demanded, “In the Name of Jesus! I command you devils to return to your sender!” Anna shook at Verah’s command; the scorpions on the floor vibrated and ran back. Anna picked a table next to her like a piece of bread and hurled it at Verah. Verah ducked and the table crashed into Austin and the others.

Usman must have found courage in Verah’s boldness. They all had forgotten he was still there. He shouted from the exit door where he stood watching Verah confront the devils, “You powers of darkness, I command you in the Name of Jesus, catch fire now!” If they all had not been there to witness it, no amount of persuasion would have made them believe what happened when Usman made that command. Right before their eyes, the scorpions on the floor caught fire and exploded.

An invisible force lifted Anna and flung her on the floor. That gigantic scorpion which had gone into Anna crept out of her body burning with great fire. Usman must have got high on the result he got. He ran towards the scorpion and put his feet on it, shouting, “Usman shall tread upon serpents and scorpions!” Whatever happened to the scorpion when Usman matched on it, no one could tell. If he crushed it into the ground of if it went into his body, there was no explaining it.

When Anna got up from the floor, she looked stunned, wondering what had happened.

Usman was eager to hear from Melinda and her friends about how the kind of demonic manifestation he saw that night came to hunt them; Melinda obliged him and gave him a detailed account of how it all began. Usman was shocked by the gory tale he heard. He however could not figure out why they failed to get Strong Pastor involved in their renewed plight.
