As Austin went outside, the scorpion followed him with amazing speed, just like natural scorpions do. While Austin walked through the passageway he kept trying to call Osoba. Eventually he got through to his phone; it was ringing and so Austin paused, waiting for Osoba to pick up. While he stood waiting for Osoba to pick the call, the gigantic dark scorpion moved exactly above his position on the ceiling; at that very moment, nurses were wheeling in a patient into the hospital, and were shouting for people to make a way for them, the scorpion let itself loose from the ceiling, descending towards Austin’s head, the nurses got close and shoved Austin out of the way, the smoke scorpion landed on the patient instead. The patient was a woman in her mid-sixties. The nurses didn’t see the scorpion land on her and move into her body.

Austin on his part was busy talking with Osoba over the phone, trying very hard to get him to come down to the hospital. Osoba assured him that he and some of his guys would be at the hospital that evening.  Austin was glad to hear that. He wanted them to have a collective front against the attack from the elders of Circle of Stars. 

About 7:00 pm, Osoba and three young men arrived at the hospital. Austin took his time and filled Osoba in on all that had happened at the hospital while he was away. Osoba suggested that they leave the hospital feeling it was no longer safe for Melinda or any one of them. Austin thought they all should give their opinions about moving out of the hospital and the new place they would go to. His reason was that Melinda and Verah were not in good conditions to leave the hospital yet. They all clustered around Melinda’s bed to discuss the issue, even Verah had to be moved into the room.

While they were discussing, the ceiling fan in the room began to spin around with unnatural speed; they all paused to watch it for a while. No one had touched the ceiling fan regulator. One of Osoba’s colleagues went to the regulator to reduce its speed. For no explainable reason, the ceiling fan unhooked from the ceiling, descending with the same speed it was rotating. They were at great risk.

Osoba’s colleague, Oliseh, had no chance to duck; the ceiling blew his head off, splashing his blood all around the room. The ceiling fan continued to descend, cutting into the human flesh closest to it and spraying their meat and blood all around the room. The scene was tense and charged with super horror. It was clear the demonic was at play.

Another colleague of Osoba’s, Ochuma, raised his hand in defense and the demonized ceiling fan sliced it off like it had no bone. Austin who had made it to the floor had to raise a metallic seat toward the direction of the fan to quench its monstrously rotating blades.

When the blades hit the metallic seat, two of the blades pulled off and whizzed past their heads and buried themselves into the wall. That was bloodcurdling. The only remaining blade twisted upward and continued to rotate.

Austin couldn’t hold the seat steady for long, the blows from the three blades of the ceiling fan sent it out of his hands. Though they were shouting, not one soul in the hospital came to their aid. As the whirring sound of the rotating motor of the fan died down, Osoba and Austin sprang to their feet to attend to the others.

Osoba tore a piece of cloth off his shirt and bandaged Ochuma’s hand and led him out of the room to find doctors. Austin checked on Melinda and Verah, and thankfully the two of them were fine. The other colleague of Osoba wasn’t moving, as he lay on the floor; Austin touched him and called his name, “Etim! Etim!! Etim!!!” Eventually Etim moved, but with much pain. One of the blades had carved his left thigh open. Austin bandaged it and asked him to lie still on the floor.

Osoba ran into the room alarmed. “A woman has gone mad in the hospital, she slicing nurses, doctors and fellow patients with a surgical blade. We have to leave now, from what I saw of her, she is definitely much more than mad, something has possessed her! This is no longer a good place to get medical treatment,” Osoba announced to Austin and the others. While they hurried to leave the room, the woman with the surgical blade, appeared at the doorway, forcing all of them back into the room. Her eyes were like those of Verah when she was possessed.

They were hollow and filled with whirling dark smoke. She smiled at them all and asked, “How was the gift I sent to you all? Oh I see one of you is dead; he didn’t like my gift. Aw! That is bad.” She stepped into the room and waved her hand at the door and it slammed shut. She continued, “You see, you shouldn’t have dug up Michael’s grave and you shouldn’t have killed a serving lord of stars. What you did was an abomination, it has never happened before in the two hundred and fifteen years the Circle of Stars has been in existence. Now you can understand why we have to make an example of you all, so that no one else would ever try it again.”

Verah raised her voice and shouted, “I believe in the Son of God Jesus Christ! In his name, I demand that you foul spirit desist in your manipulation of this woman in whose body you are and come out now!” The woman with the surgical blade began turn her head unnaturally from left to right with amazing swiftness. She began to vibrate all over, dropped the surgical blade in her hand and began to slowly go down on her knees. She hit the floor on both knees and hands, breathing heavily; for no conceivable reason she sprang to her feet, grabbed an iron bed next to her and raised it to crush Austin and the others. Verah whose faith had grown bolder stepped forward and demanded, “Be still you agent of darkness! In the Name of Jesus, I demand you hold your peace!” The iron bed which the woman had raised somersaulted in her hand and knocked her flat on the floor, leaving her face soaked in blood.

Melinda saw it come out of the woman, she shouted, “Jesus! Look at that! What is that thing?” Osoba was the only one who saw a part of it before it disappeared into the passageway and went after it. However as soon as the giant smoke-like scorpion went into the passage, it climbed the wall and hung itself on the ceiling waiting to jump on another person. The others followed behind Osoba shouting different verses of the bible, and the name of Jesus. They didn’t know what Melinda saw or what Osoba went after, but they were certain it was evil.

Osoba ran as far as the reception looking for it. When the others caught up with him they were eager to ask, “What were you chasing after?” “It was black like a scorpion; the only difference is that it moved like smoke or cloud,” he replied. “I saw it come out of the woman that attacked us,” Melinda added. “I think I have understood it now. This evil creature must be what took hold of Verah when she attacked Melinda. It must have been hanging around the hospital looking for some other person to possess so it can attack us. The elders of Circle of Stars must have sent it here to kill us all.” Austin had hardly finished his statement when they saw the woman who had attacked them bearing down heavily at them, her face covered in blood and dragging a drip infusion stand behind her. The scorpion had retaken possession of her.
