*****

Obiajulum was taken to the village where a healer was called and much cleansing was done.

All plans to get the boy back on his feet again proved abortive; as this was going on, Obiajulum’s spirit wandered aimlessly in a strange land.

“Ajulu—Ajulu—”

Obiajulum, half-naked, with just a piece of clothing covering his sex, looked up and sideways to see who was calling.

“Ajulu…”

Obiajulum made to answer as an old man appeared in front of him. “Don’t!” the old man yelled, the frightened, shaken boy pinned to the spot.

“Who are you?” Obiajulum mustered up courage to ask, as the old man replied, “Who am I or what am I matters not.” the old man spoke with eyes directed up.

“What do you want from me?” Obiajulum questioned further. “How is it that I cannot find my way back?”

The old man turned his head to the side and beckoned to Obiajulum to come.

“I cannot come with you, old man. You are but a stranger.” his words made the old man laugh.

“You need not be afraid, my son,” he said, “This path you see, would lead you right straight to where you seek.” his voice echoed as he was no more.

Obiajulum followed the path revealed to him—coming upon a crossroads that left him confused, he followed his instinct, walking tirelessly until a river brought him to a stop. I guess I’ll never find my way back, he sighed and slumped to the ground.

Nwa m kwụrụ ọtọ–e

Nwa m kwụrụ ọtọ-e

Nwa m kwụrụ ọtọ-e

Nwa m kwụrụ ọtọ…

“E—” Obiajulum recognized the voice and leaped to his feet. “Nne!” he called happily and dived into the river.
