The Queen mother came inside the coven
and we all bowed down as she walked
graciously to her throne. She was shining
like the sun and her hair was so long that
it was touching the ground.
Her eyes were pure green and her shining
golden trident was in her hand. Her golden
crown also lay graciously on her head.
All: all hail the Queen mother. The ruler of
the sea and the one who brings Justice
upon all men.
We said and continued praising her as she
took her seat and ordered us to stand up.
Queen: you can all rise to your feet.
We all stood up and she began.
Queen: Diana, step forward.
Me: yes Queen mother.
I said and came out, standing in front of
Queen: you have been scarce. We don’t see
you and you hardly attend our meetings. I
hope all is well?
Me: yes queen mother, all is fine.
Queen: very good. Sandra and Linda step
Sandra and Linda stepped out and bowed
before the Queen mother.
Queen: I want to give the three of you an
assignment. I want you three to
assassinate Mr sadiq. A chronic cheat that
lives in Ghana.

Me, Linda and Sandra: yes queen mother.
Queen: very nice. you can now go back to
your line let our meeting begin.
I woke up and yawned. This is very
strange, I have never slept so long after
eating Vegetable soup and pounded yam
I looked around and Diana was nowhere to
be found around me. I wanted to walk to
the sitting room when I my phone began to
Me: how could be this one that is calling
me this early morning?
I asked as I picked my phone and saw
“TITUS” boldly written on the screen.
Me: haa, Oga titus, this one wey you call

Titus: na dat one be the good morning wey

I said as the phone fell down from my
hand. I also fell down to the ground and
started to cry when Diana rushed inside
from the kitchen with a spoon in her hand
and apron tied around her waist.
