It was the first time in forever; the impossible was about the happen, the living and the dead, in a duel.

Siera and been tossed to the far end of the apartment, thrown over the dinning table to land with a loud thud.

Jack was going to leap in shock but Julie was by his side to sooth him.

“It’s ok Jack, go back to sleep, I’m trying to squash an insect”

SWORD OF LAW

I couldn’t believe my biological father could sentence me to life imprisonment. Don’t blame him please. I am the architect of my own destruction. I used my own hands to dig my own grave. I am now regretting my actions. I could vividly recall my mum’s word before I indirectly killed her…she do tell me that “any child that is not obedient to his/her parent, is definitely billing for his/her own destruction. I understand what her word meant now. Now her words has finally come to pass. I have billed for my own destruction which I must definitely pay for. God! I should have obeyed my parents.

Jack held his breathe, his thoughts were conflicted, they were without base. He knew he had broken out in sweat already but he didn’t want to accept the fact that he was scared to death. The apartment was calm now and he could see the gatekeeper before him. Her eyes glowed white beneath her cloak.

“I’m not gonna ask what you are, or what you are doing in my room, because I know who you are, and I’m… I’m not scared of you”

The other side 14

Siera could only denote one thing. Julie had gotten to Jack. He could see her too. Or maybe she had bewitched him somehow. She had never witnessed Jack in such mood before. This was getting out of hand. She should have just gotten a gun and drive a bullet through his heart, when she had the chance.

Damn Julie! Anyway she was pretty sure that Julie wouldn’t survive the hit, so the old woman she encountered had revealed.

The gatekeeper is the keeper of the gates, hunter of lost souls. Link to the other side”
He didn’t get the explication.

“I meant what the gatekeeper has to do with this…?”

“She armed Siera with the whip”

Favour continued, examining Julie closely.

“And what is that supposed to do?”

“Wipe Julie of existence, she is still here because the whip barely touched her. But you see this dark hole, once it spreads, she’ll wash off”
