With amazing agility, he leapt out of the grave and seized one of the young men who came with Simon. The guy shouted drawing attention his way, he tried to fight off the risen dead, but instead fell into the grave with him. In just seconds the two risen dead in the grave tore him to shreds.

To subdue them, Osoba cast some of the power into the grave and the two risen dead grew quiet. They all sat down wondering who would go into the grave and finish off the digging. Without saying a word Osoba jumped into the grave, tied ropes on the three dead bodies and asked Ochuma and the other guys above ground to pull the ropes. They pulled up the three dead bodies and Osoba began to dig the grave all by himself.

After some minutes of digging, he got to the coffin, he asked for the ropes and Simon who had become actively involved threw them to him, Osoba tied the ropes on the corners of the wonky, creaky coffin and asked them to pull it up. Ochuma lowered a retractable ladder they brought along and Osoba climbed out of the grave. By this time Etim had recovered considerably from the asphyxiating sensation which took over his lungs; though still bleeding, he offered to help Ochuma and Osoba in the task to follow once the coffin had been opened. Austin who much of the night had been more or less spineless, offered to assist in whatever way his help would be required and asked Etim to rest a while.

When they opened the coffin, the shade inside had decayed considerably and a small box was found around the shade’s chest area. Osoba removed the box and cracked it open; it contained bits of undecayed human parts. “What you see here are the body parts of the risen dead who serve Michael. Once we destroy them, Michael won’t be able to wield his powers again. Osoba cast the powder into the coffin; he asked the other guys to bring the bodies of the other dead ones. They did, and heaped them around the coffin; Osoba covered them with the potent powder and dropped some oil which Ochuma gave to him on them and set them on fire.

As the bodies burned, a man stood afar off and watched them. He was too far off for any one of them to have seen him. Osoba set the small box on the ground, scooped a handful of the powder and then did the most unexpected thing - he prayed. As he began to pray, Etim and Ochuma joined him and knelt down on the ground. The others were surprised and had to kneel and bow their heads in prayer. “I appealed to you Oh Most High. Unleash your power and destroy this evil with which hades has afflicted the living. Let the brightness of your glory and light overwhelm the powers of tartarus from where this evil has fountained up…” While Osoba prayed, the man who had been hiding began to run towards them, moving very fast and wielding a glistening sword. No one saw him coming nor heard his footstep.

Osoba lowered his raised arm and cast the power on the objects inside the small box and poured on it some of the oil which Ochuma gave him earlier. He reached out to ignite the match in his hand and they heard a thud, “Puhm!” The head of the second guy Simon came with hit the ground. The fast moving man swung his sword at Melinda aiming for her neck, Melinda ducked lamely; the match stick was already burning, Osoba dropped it on the small box. The man with the sword busted into flames and went with the wind.

 No one got a good look at him, he was too fast, but whoever he was they were thankful he was destroyed by the fire. Melinda was lying face down and was bleeding from the neck. The others were happy celebrating that the evil in Michael’s grave had been destroyed and didn’t notice Melinda.  Etim looked her way wondering why she was not celebrating; he moved closer and saw blood oozing from her neck. He feared the man’s sword must have slit her throat and shouted, “She is dead! The woman is dead!”

Michael was lying on a stone altar in a Persian-like temple, badly charred all over. A number of the elders of the Circle of Stars stood around him. “You are dying lord. You have to choose a man to take your place and complete your reign. It has to be done now. We fear you will not see the sun rise tomorrow morning,” said the head of the elders of the Circle of Stars. “Summon him and let him complete my reign. He is the one I couldn’t stop; he is outside the Circle of Stars, but I am the lord of his star.” “Who is that my lord?” asked the head of the elders of the Circle of Stars. “He is Simon, Simon Temile. I release his star.” Michael didn’t say another word after that; he lay on the altar breathing weakly.

“I killed her! It is all my fault! I persuaded her to go to the grave site with me. I should have put her in a hotel room. I killed Melinda.” “It is not your fault you did what you thought was best at that point. Stop blaming yourself! Stop it!” shouted Osoba as he tried to calm Austin down. “Simon was acting strangely; some very strong force was pulling his attention to some place. He ran out of the hospital reception, got into Osoba’s bus and drove off not knowing where he was headed. Something was pulling him to a destination. While Austin mourned bitterly, a nurse ran into the reception and announced to them, “The doctors have just got a pulse on the lady; they are trying very hard now to stabilize her. She lost a lot of blood.” Austin hit the floor on his knees and prayed, “Thank you God for bringing Melinda back, please don’t let her slip away again. Save her please!” He cried bitterly as he said those words.

When they arrived at the hospital that night, doctors had given them the impression that Melinda’s condition was almost beyond anything they could do. After the doctors had got a pulse, Austin and the others waited and hoped that Melinda’s condition would improve. They were all focused on Melinda’s recovery and didn’t notice that Simon had left the hospital, driving to an unknown destination under the spell of the elders of the Circle of Stars.
