“Hi Verah! You came to see me. That’s very nice of you. I have been wondering how you are doing.” Verah didn’t say a word to Melinda. It was very unlike her. Melinda quickly suspected something was wrong with her friend, so she sat up on her bed and asked, “Verah what is wrong with you?” By this time Verah was very close to her. Finally, Verah spoke and when she did, it was as if several men were inside of her trying to speak at the same time, “Melinda run! You are dead! You dug up Michael’s grave! Burn in hell!” Verah tilted her head upward and groaned like a beast, “Hoaah!!!” The light bulbs in the room and the glass windows shattered at Verah’s shout. Melinda sprang from her bed and made for the door, but sadly she was too weak. Verah turned with the kind of swiftness only achievable by a supernatural being and grabbed Melinda from behind and flung her back on the bed.

By this time Verah’s sunglass had fallen off and what Melinda saw in place of her eyes was a pair of dark spots swelling like the waves of the sea. Melinda knew whoever was in front of her was no longer her friend Verah; she had to fight or die. Meanwhile the hospital staff who had heard Verah’s monstrous groan, came running to Melinda’s room to know what it was. Through the glass portion of the door they could see the fight going on in the room but could not come in. A powerful force had held the door shut, all they could do was shout and bang on the door. When Verah turned and the hospital staff saw her eyes, they fled from the door, screaming insanely as they ran.

Back in the room Verah was holding the kitchen knife in her hand and thrusting it at Melinda with speed too fast for her to defend. The knife was slashing Melinda’s body as she did her best to defend herself. At some point Melinda was able to get under the bed and crept out behind Verah. Close to Melinda was a drip infusion stand, she held it firmly with both hands, lifted it and with all her might, crashed it into Verah’s skull. Much to Melinda’s shock, Verah didn’t move, the drip infusion stand just bounced off her as if she hit it against a wall. Verah came at Melinda again, leaving her no choice but to use the drip infusion stand a second time.

Melinda lifted the stand and plunged it into Verah’s chest and screamed, “Be gone in the name of Jesus!” The force sent Verah against the wall; she came off the wall leaving it stained with blood. When she hit the floor she lay still. Melinda slowly sat down on the floor bleeding all over from knife wounds. The door which had been shut opened of its own accord letting in pastor Idika and Austin who had been watching the horror from outside through the glass portion on the door. Austin went for Melinda and hugged her, but Melinda screamed painfully, pastor Idika ran out of the room to call doctors, he knew Melinda needed immediate treatment. When doctors came into the room, they could not believe their eyes, the floor and the walls were stained with blood. They quickly put Melinda on a stretcher and wheeled her to the theater; Verah had cut her badly with the knife.

While all attention was paid to Melinda, Verah was slowly bleeding to death. It took pastor Idika to call attention to her condition. He was the only one bold enough to get close to Verah’s body. When he did, he saw a gash at the back of her head spurting blood. He shouted, “The demon possessed lady is dying, she is losing blood!” At first the doctors and nurses were too afraid to get close, Austin had to go and open her eyelids carefully, when he saw her eyes had turned back to normal, he put a piece of cloth on her wound to stop the bleeding. “Her name is Verah, she is a friend to us. You won’t be able to understand what happened to her. Just help her please,” Austin said to the doctors and nurses in the room. Even though Verah had lost the power which took hold of her, doctors and nurses were still afraid of her. When she was wheeled off the room for treatment, Austin had to follow the doctors and nurses to the theater; he feared they might out of fear leave her to die.

No one saw it, when Verah lay on the floor; something had crept out of her body and went through the wall. It was like a giant black scorpion in smoke form.

By late evening, Verah had recovered fully from the blow she took to her head and the consequent unconsciousness. Melinda who was still in several bandages, and Austin could not wait to hear her narrate how she came to be possessed with the sort of power they saw earlier in the day. “I was in my little apartment at Bay Ground, trying to fix myself some junk food, when I heard a noise in my room, I peeked into the room only to see Simon seating in my chair and smiling at me warmly…” “You saw Simon? How did he get in?” asked Austin. “I don’t know. I still can’t explain it. I did the only thing that came to my mind; which was to shut myself in my kitchen and pray. I shouted the Holy Ghost fire for some time, I don’t know for how long. When I felt he must have left, I opened the kitchen door to check if he was still there.  Thankfully he had gone, or so I thought. So I ran into the room to get my things and run away from the apartment.

“Actually I had taken some of the things I needed and was on my way out when I decided to check the smoke coming out from my kitchen. When I opened my kitchen door, guess who I saw?” Austin and Melinda sat staring at Verah speechlessly. Melinda managed to ask, “Who was in your kitchen?” “My dead grandmother! I saw her in my kitchen preparing the Quaker Oat I had abandoned in fear. The last thing I remember clearly was my grandmother turning into thick dark smoke and moving into my body. Every other thing that happened afterwards are like bits of hazy dreams to me. I remember having a minor misunderstanding with a taxi driver and my telling him to die. I saw him pounding his head on his steering.

“I don’t know if he died. I also remember hearing Simon’s voice when I was at the reception waiting to be shown your hospital room. After I got possessed I had only one desire, to kill the two of you.” “You said you heard Simon’s voice, what did he tell you?” asked Melinda. “He told me to fight the urge to kill the two of you.” “From now on we all are going to stick together until we find a way to fight this renewed attack against us,” Austin said. Melinda and Verah nodded in agreement. “Melinda I am sorry I did all this to you; look at your body. I can’t believe I wanted to kill you. I am sorry, please forgive me,” Verah pleaded amid sobs. “Babe I understand, you don’t need to cry about it; obviously we are at war,” responded Melinda.

“Austin Verah saw Simon at her apartment; does that mean he has assumed Michael’s position?” “I don’t know that yet, I need to speak with Osoba.” “I don’t think that Simon has accepted that position yet. Like I said, I heard him in my head telling me to fight the urge to kill the two of you. If he had become the lord of stars, why would he tell me that? I know Simon, they will have to kill him first to get him to become the lord of stars,” Verah explained. “If Simon hasn’t become one of them, then there is hope. Austin we need to act fast. We need to find a way to stop the mindless attacks against us and save Simon,” said Melinda.

“Yes, I am trying to get in touch with Osoba, the network service here is rather too poor.” Austin clutching his phone went outside hoping to get a better network coverage to place a call to Osoba. They didn’t see it, but above their heads was that gigantic dark scorpion in smoke form crouching on the ceiling.
