‘Yes, Major Hassan. We are going to win… after we break our Mallets on their heads, right?’ Rasheed jibes further. Jamiu laughs and Danjuma chuckles. Hassan gives Rasheed an angry look. He replies him with a defiant look. Rasheed is the second son of Chief Aregbesola; one of Nigeria’s richest business moguls, and has been Hassan’s friend since they were in secondary school, longer than Jamiu or Danjuma. They’ve both always had a way of countering each other’s opinions, which used to lead to numerous physical fights when they were younger, but as they’ve grown older they’ve learnt to restrict their fighting to words and angry looks. Still, when it comes down to it, Hassan still values the opinion of Rasheed over Danjuma, who is his subordinate in the Nigerian Army and over Jamiu, who works for his Father; General Abubakar…
Nature goes over and opens his wardrobe, where his Golden Sword is standing, suspended in the air. He reaches for the small, computerized safe box in the upper compartment and types in the security code. He opens the safe, filled with jewels and a few bundles of foreign currency, and pulls out a gold bracelet, encrusted with emeralds. He then shuts the safe and walks over to her. He places the bracelet on Wealth’s left wrist and gradually the air around her body begins to turn into green smoke. The green smoke reacts with her golden skin and then soft, milk-chocolate colored skin starts to form all over the surface of her body, covering her golden face and down, over her golden toes. Finally, the green smoke gathers above her head, with the molecules reacting together, and leaves her with thick, curly, black hair…
Suddenly, there is a great explosion in the distant sky and a burning golden object falls out. Nature is distracted by a call from the High Priest, alerting him of the entrance of an Alien creature into the Earth. He shuts the High Priest out of his mind but not before Runta takes advantage of the distraction. She stretches her hands outward and two gigantic palms appear out of thin air, glowing with blue electro-magnetic energy and following her hand motions. She uses the giant palms to grab Nature and squeezes him, at the same time electrocuting him. Vantu then charges up a lightning bolt and hurls it at him…
‘According to the will of the ailing Emir, his grandson, Aliu, was to be his Successor but in matters like these, that rest so heavily on the destinies of many men, a dying man’s will is not always enough to put the opposing powers to rest.
It was nighttime, just some hours before Aisha’s birthday, when Karida called for Bashir and Danladi. They went to meet with her and their father privately, in the master bedroom. All five children were in the main Parlor at the time, still reveling in the feeling of being together, under one roof, after such a long time…’
‘Mother… I’m leaving soon and all you want to do is pray?’ Wealth says, approaching Wisdom, hovering over the flames. Her skin made of a golden metal, with both electric and heat energy flowing through her core, as she gets to her mother.
‘Prayer is always good, my love.’
‘I know… but won’t you miss me? Won’t you be sad to see me leave?
‘You’ll never be too far away; I’m always in your head; you can talk to me anytime.’ Wisdom says, also transferring the message to her mind.
‘But I wouldn’t be able to see you…’ she hovers forward and hugs her mother. ‘I won’t be able to hug you.’
Aisha Ibrahim steps out of the black mercedes S class, escorted by her two security guards. Her Father married eight wives, with her Mother being the fifth wife. Aisha is the last child of her mother’s five children and the only daughter of her Mother.
She bows her head down and walks in a manner reflecting religious piety. She’s always been a beacon of islamic virtue to the people around her since she was a little girl, mostly because her Father…
