The other side
Julie blinked several times, trying to think if what she heard wasn’t some loose figment of her imaginations.
“But I didn’t show myself to her, how is that possible?”
Favour was not saying anything and it only infuriated her.
“Are you telling me or you were just pulling my legs?”
She fumed in anger…she had the urge to rend favour apart for feeding her curious mind.
“Julie, you are messing with the living, these are repercussions you should expect”
Favour didn’t make perfect sense…and Julie didn’t get her point.
“What do you mean I am messing with the living? What is the point of my mission in the first place? Hello? It’s meant to mess with the living!”
Favour was about to say something to counter her point but she wasn’t ready to hear anymore stories, what she wanted to hear was quite different.
“What or who is responsible for this, why can Siera see me?”
Favour sighed and took another minute to voice it out.
“It’s Bernice, the gatekeeper”
Julie went mad in wrath…she tapped her middle finger subconsciously and requested in the most calm tone she could manage at that moment.
“Ok, take me to her”
“Take me to her!!”
Julie’s wrath went Intense, she oozed of dark smoke and caused a whirlwind that blew down a tree. Favour had taken her to a beach…it didn’t take minutes before people scattered around, running for their dear lives.
“Ok ok…will you calm down!”
Favour screamed and took her straight to stand before the gatekeeper… She was wise not to spend another sec, the moment she dropped Julie she took off even before Bernice let down her whip.
“Why are you messing with my mission?”
Julie’s anger got her bold now, she didn’t care what power Bernice had that might be of harm to her.
“Your mission, can you remind me what your mission is again…I kinda lost track of it”
Julie couldn’t tell where Bernice was heading to, but she replied anyway.
“To make Jack fall in love with me…”
“Good, good…I remember, so what have you been doing?”
The line of anger imprinted on Julie’s forehead disappeared. She understood what Bernice was getting at.
“I..I am trying to save is life”
Her reply changed Bernice’s expression to a frightening one.
“You don’t mess with the fate of humans, if he is meant to die, he will die! It’s not your job to save him…that’s not the reason you are there”
At first Julie was frightened, but what she heard was totally unreasonable.
“What’s the use of loving me when he is going to die?”
Bernice was quick to counter her question.
“It’s of no concern of yours…don’t mess with his fate”
Julie’s initial anger resurfaced!
“Wait! You are just going to allow that bastard that murdered me and took everything I had, you are going to just let her murder Jack too? When you can do something about it?”
Julie wasn’t getting the point Bernice was trying to put to her.
“You don’t get me Julie, do you? We don’t mess with the Fate of humans! Are you daft or something…? Even if I have all the powers in the world, I would do nothing!”
Julie was devastated but she wasn’t relenting on her will to save him still.
“Well that’s your choice… I would save him, even if it means giving up my life as a ghost”
Julie was actually expecting the gatekeeper to let down her whip and probably charge at her. But Bernice simply laughed and got serious the next moment.
“I can’t wipe you of existence until after 30days, because a deal has been signed with the universe on Joan’s sacrifice… That doesn’t mean I would allow you go on with your stubborn will…I would aid your enemies to overpower you Julie, choose wisely…”
Julie wasn’t buying Bernice’s threat. She turned to go but felt the need to throw the ball at Bernice’s court… And so she turned and smiled to the corner of her lips, with a gesture and a proud talk.
“Alright Bernice, game on”
