GHOST RUN : Part 22 – 32

I laid on my bed that night praying in my heart that the Lord would reveal
to me, the need of Mororo.

I saw an angry looking man going towards a big river. He was dressed like
an ancient warrior. He was tall and very huge…he was sweating profusely.
On getting to the bank of the water, he started shouting loud and clear…
“River goddess, why is it that you have refused to assist me in my wars?
Ever since I became the Balogun (Chief Warrior) of this village, I have not
won any battle.” He said
A mermaid figure came out of the water and spoke to him…
“I can’t show my full support for you since, you have refused to enter a
covenant with me…
“What you are asking for in other to bind this covenant is beyond me, you
are asking that I dedicate my entire lineage to the worship of you, but I am
afraid of what the future holds. What If some of them decide to worship
other gods or the women in my generation get married to men who worship
other gods, won’t you get angry and destroy them? Can’t you enter the
covenant with me alone?”
The river goddess got angry and returned back into the river…
“Goddess, please come back…”the man said… but the goddess didn’t pay attention.

The warrior was seated with a friend over a bowl of palm wine. The friend
was drinking the palm wine but it was written all over the warrior that he
was unhappy…My friend, enjoy your life and stop thinking about the unborn generation,
they will sort themselves out just the way you are sorting yourself out. Enter
the agreement with the river goddess and be the most powerful man on
earth. Do you know what it means for the river goddess to back you up? “
The warrior looked at his friend, reasoning out what he was saying…

“I have accepted your offer!” the warrior said at the bank of the river. The
river goddess came out of the river very happy.
“Morire, you will be the most powerful man in this area, and when men and
women hear your voice or your name, they will tremble in fear. I change
your name to “Morooro” {I am Wicked}. You will win all the battles you
ever go to… you shall be wicked, and not show Mercy. The water from this
river will serve as what binds us together, as long as your people drink the
water from this river, they will forever be dedicated to me, and no people
will be able to defeat them. I will protect your people and a day will come
that this village will be named after you, I will give you immeasurable
power, wealth and your fear will be in the hearts of people. You shall be my
beloved and I will be your beloved, so shall it be between our offsprings…”
The goddess said as she stretched her scepter to him transferring a dark
flame into him…
She swam towards him and stood on her mermaid tail, she kissed the warrior. Right there by the bank of the river, she copulated with the

I woke up very frightened from that dream… The name Mororo Village must have been named after the wicked warrior named Morooro. He had entered a covenant with the river goddess and that explains why the people of Mororo were wicked and under the full influence of evil.
How was I going to save the innocent lineage of the warrior, including
Seun’s wife, the Priestess of Mororo? They were only victims of a wicked forefather…
