“Please MOST HIGH, please Forgive us all…” Juliana said, crying from her sleep…
Her brother Angie heard her sob as he passed in front of her room. He stopped in his tracks, to eavesdrop on his sister. Naito had told him to get her a glass of water.
He opened the door carefully, and to his shock, Juliana was still asleep, crying and talking from her sleep. Angie felt he was going to run mad soon, his wife had
“Sleeping episodes” where she could just shut down in the middle of a conversation, now his only sister was talking from her sleep…
“ Julie, Juliana , Juliana…” Angie tapped her from sleep, but Juliana was far from waking up. Her face was filled with tears…
“ Juliana wake up… Juliana wake up…”
Angie was screaming
Naito heard her husband screaming his sister’s name. When the government announced the official shut down of the country, Angie had sent for his sister as she was the only blood relative he had. They had been orphaned at a very early age. Angie wanted her close because of the Islingbee Virus. Naito loved Juliana as a sister but sometimes pure hatred filled her heart for her.
Naito didn’t know it was the witchcraft Spirit in her that couldn’t stand Juliana’s Spirit filled Presence.
Naito rushed off to Juliana’s room…
“ Juliana please wake up… “ Angie was already sobbing. Naito stood by the door soberly as the sight was scary. Juliana was sobbing and talking about God having mercy but her eyes were firmly shut…
“ Is this how I look when I have my Sleeping episodes?” Naito asked Angie
“ You think she may be having Sleeping episodes like you? “ Angie asked very bewildered “ Is your Sleeping episodes a transferable disease or something?”
“ I don’t know! but I could call my doctor to ask him” Naito said as she ran off to pick up her phone.
Anthony sat in the cave that had become home to him, after escaping from Ruth’s hitman. He had run into the forest and after walking for Five hours he saw a big
cave house. He knocked at the door but no one answered. He sat outside the cave house for days hoping the owners would return but no one showed up for days. After 4 days, he broke down the door and went in.
The Cave had everything indoor. It was beautiful furnished. There was a solar system in place, there was a T.V set. He saw a Fridge . He walked hurriedly towards it but unfortunately there was nothing in the Fridge… He turned on the tap to be sure, there was water running… Fortunately for him this time around, clear water gushed out of the tap.
It had been day’s without food, and Anthony watched himself on T.V being paraded as the enemy of Mankind…
“ Lord, I am sorry… Please help Mankind. I know I caused this mess and the evil people have taken it up beyond what I planned… Please if you have to kill me and shed my blood for people to be free, please do” Anthony didn’t see the need to be alive, his wife and children were dead. He didn’t know where Henry was. He didn’t know if he made it to Bribia Island…
“ God, please kill me for the salvation of the world…”
“ Your blood doesn’t have what it takes to save the world!” Anthony jumped back when he heard those words in the room.
“ Who is that?” Anthony looked around the room, the voice he heard was so audible…
Fear gripped Anthony’s heart…
The doctor had told Naito , Juliana should be left alone till she woke up by herself.
The doctor told her she was probably have a terrible dream.
Angie and Naito sat watching her. Juliana didn’t wake up for another 15 minutes.
Suddenly, Juliana’s eyes opened…
“ Juliana … Oh thank God! She is awake!” Angie jumped up
“ Wow! My goodness” Naito said happily but deep within her without knowing why she felt deep hatred for her and felt the urge to kill her…
“ I need a pen and paper…” Juliana said on waking up and at that same moment Naito went into a sudden “sleeping episode”….
