When Urenma saw her children running to engage the gods, she cried and tried to send them back. “They are not your equal! Stay with the lower spirits!” she shouted. However what she did not know was that the gods above had planned to humiliate Nshaa by the hands of her children. Ignoring their mother they engaged the gods.
With bathed breath, Urenma watched to see if her children would emerge from the blast which followed the clash of the gods and her children. When the dust and light receded, her two children were on their feet moving, hacking and stabbing the gods menacingly.
Nshaa was an evil genius, he quickly figured out what the gods above were up to something. The children were not normal, they must have recieved a gift from the gods above; and so he smartly stayed out of their way and preferred to engage Urenma, someone he knew and had lived with. But even that was a mistake. As soon as Nshaa and Urenma faced each other alone, she brought him down seven times. Suddenly Nshaa, the ruthless and Mighty god, could not find his Ilk on the battle ground; everyone seemed to be ahead of him.
The gods above had played a mighty trick on him. His second revolt would end in a manner worse than the first. When Olachi and Obiakor had disposed the last of the nineteen gods they came for Nshaa, the gods who locked their mother in a cage; they still remembered. Nshaa was having problem containing Urenma, now how would he handle her along with her two young devils? As though that was not enough, Ntani joined Urenma and her children against Nshaa. There was no running away from the battle, he must stand and fight. Then Obinze having seen off the last of the army of the river world joined his family and Ntani against Nshaa.
They hacked him with their blades stabbed him and parried his attacks and lightning until Nshaa went down on his knees. Above him stood Obiakor and Olachi, cutting into him like they were slaughtering a cow at new yam festival.
Obinze, Urenma and Ntani retreated and allowed the teenagers to have fun with the proud and wicked god.
Nshaa was certain that the council of gods above did something to him and the nineteen gods, the battle was not meant to end the way it did. From the high lands to the low lands of Ukeh, human and spirits bodies lay on the ground; there had never been anytime there was such a body count of spirits in Battle. On the ground lay incountable number of pure spirits from the river world, the damned spirits and the army from above. The most horrifying sights were humans torn apart by the damned spirits; some of them were feasted on by those spirits. Children were beheaded and mothers cut in two. While men and boys had their testicles and heats pulled off from their bodies. Most parts of Ukeh were drenched with blood; farms, trees and rivers were destoryed.
When Nshaa fell down and could not rise to fight, Urenma bound him with her hair and the army from above left with him to be judged by the council of gods. All the spirits who fell in battle were sent to the river world where they were to be judged and bound or have their strengths given back to them depending on which side they fought in the battle.
After the battle was over and humans begin to move about freely in Ukeh once again, the gods above sent their messengers to announce that the children of the gods could be born to men again in Ukeh, just like in the days of old. Urenma and Obinze determined to know who their children really were, left with the messengers of the gods for answers about their children. Obinze and Urenma were not seen in Ukeh for a long time. In their absence their children grew mighty in the land. Many young and wealthy men came seeking Olachi’s hand in marriage, in the absence of her father, she gave them a task- anyone who could beat her in a fight would have her hand in marriage. She had all the time to be silly, her parents were not around.
None could win her hand for marriage in a fight, until a handsome boy came from Umuekwele, a land afar from Ukeh; the boy did not win her hand in a fight, he stole her heart with his flute and songs.
Obinze and Urenma came back to Ukeh; having find out who their children was.
Obiakor and Olachi were happy to see their parent’s after a long period of time. And they all lived as a mighty happy family.
Obiakor Obinze and Ntani fall in love, and they got married.
