Sankofa

hi people… okay yhup, I’d be honest. I haven’t been treating this blog well at all( I haven’t been treating anything well at all). so we turned a year old this month and a lot of great changes are to happen(if I had a genie I’d wish for some few dollars to pimp this place up… come to think of it , do we pimp junkyards??) a lot has been going on in my life lately, I’d share on them soon, but before anything, please enjoy this. what started out as my creative writing assignment on the short story turned out to be the very first written episode of my purely fictional Ghanaian inspired mythological/superhero/fictional multiverse.( I’ve had the idea  for ages… sadly the first 3 episodes are stuck on my windows phone… it is a very sad distin…)wp-image--1207819432

Sankofa

Nsamanpwom held many secrets, he was glad to be out of there.

What had happened to Kumasi? What had happened to the beautiful garden city he had left behind? The seat of government of the powerful Asanteman he had left behind was now scattered with ugly buildings and flashy lights. The people wore such ugly clothes; even the creepy white men who came from across the sea would not wear such rugs. A lot had changed in slightly over three centuries, he had to adapt to his environment quickly so he could complete his mission.

He closed his eyes and looked into hiss “ Luʯ”. He still had a piece of Adinkra, the link to Anansesem. He was surprised that his link to the wisdom of the elders had not been broken despite his time in Nsamanpwom.  He opened his eyes and smiled. “ Nyansapo Denkyem”, the symbols of the crocodile and the knot of wisdom appeared individually in his palms. He raised his hands up and clasped his hands in a fist “agama” the two symbols merged together and landed on his chest. His raffia skirt and fly whisk, rapidly changed into a sleek suit with a walking stick. He suddenly knew every single thing that had happened since he left Asanteman over three centuries ago in search of the key to eternal life. I never expected the world to change so fast, he said to himself. Now to his mission, he had to find his twin brother.

The world as he knew it  had drastically changed.  He was not surprised that Asanteman and parts of the former Dogbo states hand merged with most of the other states to form modern day Ghana.  What surprised him was how fast technology had advanced over 300 years, what would have been pure sorcery in his time was now highly possible with a perfectly logical explanation.  He placed his hand in his pocket and pulled out a plastic strip which he wrapped around his wrist. He waved his hand over it and it brightly lit up projecting a 3d image of a half bitten apple. “ Hi my name is Siri, how can I be of assistance?” if he didn’t know better he’d have called the voice from the mobile device magic. How do I get to Konu in the Volta region of Ghana? He asked. Well I can get you a taxi to the Kumasi international airport, from there we pick a flight to Keta airport and then another taxi to your desired destination. He was amazed by how resourceful this virtual voice was. His abilities made him far superior to mortal men, he could easily just materialize at his desired destination, but he was low on energy and needed to catch up with the rest of the world. Great , let’s do it, was his reply to the voice.

He had not slept in over 300 years, yet he couldn’t close his eyes for more than five minutes. The burden of his mission was so great, he saw visions of what was to come each time his eyes were closed. To distract himself, he turned on the TV to watch world news. There was some mumbo jumbo about America given north Korea an ultimatum with threats of a nuclear world war, while England was not sure  whom was to occupy the English throne. Honestly all these things were Childs play as compared to what was supposed to come. The fabric of reality, time, history and Anansesem were at stake. As much as technology had advanced, human beings had still not the slightest idea on the actual reality of all creation. The creator Mawu Sogbo Lisa, in his own wisdom  knew why he made it so.  Those who were gifted with the sacred duty to protect  this golden truth were the guardians of anansesem.

The plane landed safely.

He walked along the beach at konu, memories which his twin brother had experienced over 300 years ago on this beach came to his mind. He remembered them like they were his memories.

He remembered how his brother was tricked and tied to a huge granite boulder and thrown into the sea. He remembered how his brother had appeared three days later floating on the back of a crocodile in the sea. He smiled to himself. Tsali had always been the Gbevu of the family, no wonder he had had the courage to challenge their father to an “Amlimatsitsi” duel. His locked hair blew in the sea breeze. He closed his eyes and tried to connect with his brother through the psychic link they had shared since birth.  “Where the hell are you? Gbevu … there is no time for messing around”. He heard a familiar laughter, “ is that really you Tsala?” he opened his eyes to see the annoying face of his twin brother, “it’s been ages since I heard that name… Tsala”.  Tsali looked at his twin brother and replied him in a sarcastic tone, “I’m sorry, do you rather prefer the name that went down in the history books?  Has the great Okomfo Anokye forgotten his real name?”. That’s enough Tsali we’ve got a lot to do, don’t let me kill you.  Tsali interrupted his brother, come one bro, there is enough drama in the world already, for instance, America is about starting a third world war just because their gay president feels North Korea insults his sexuality.

Tsali I understand the world is messed up but, whatever is coming is more dangerous than anything that has ever happened. Anansesem is being threatened. Tsali was shocked at what his twin brother said. They all knew this day would come.  There was only one person in existence who could lead them to battle, he was Kwaku Ananse. Ananse had  resurfaced for the first time in over 100000 years about 20 years ago. He had disappeared  about 5 years later. No one knew where he was.

Tsali saw the seriousness on Tsala’s face, he knew exactly what they had to do. “ Alright I’d go with you to find that old spider… before we leave I just have one question? Did you ever find the key to eternal life?” Tsala looked at his brother with a smirk, “ well the golden ankh had already finished his mission before I met him… the golden ankh was the Christ who was crucified on a cross. Now let’s get out of here”.

“Sankofa”, the symbol of the mythical bird with the very egg which it had hatched from and would lay appeared before them. The bird gently placed its egg on its back, it gently pushed its beak through the shell of the egg, its beak was followed by its head then neck until the whole thing went through and begun to spin violently, creating a portal. Tsali smiled and turned to his brother, “ well let’s go, ohh and we’d have to be very patient when we meet Ananse, he’s not quite the Ananse we expect him to be.” Tsala looked at his brother with uncertainty on his face, “where exactly are we going?”

Tsali laughed, “not where… when. We are going to 2017, the year Ananse resurfaced.”

Corpus Christi:Chapter 2

Corpus Christi:Chapter 1

Chapter 2: Dawn Awakening…
I knelt down in the middle of a long dark hall… My hands and feet were firmly bound with heavy shackles… The shackles scorched my flesh, it was as if they were trying to melt through my limbs… The glow of my Phòs was almost out.
I looked up towards the other end of the Throne room… A dark figure stared back at me… ” Welcome back home my son.”
I spat with disgust on the floor…
He begun to Laugh…
“I have a proposal for you… Let’s discuss it over a feast… ”
I completely ignored him like he didn’t exist…
“I see you are no longer interested in small talks, so let’s go straight to the point. I’ve seen you in battle… You are a magnificent beast…
What if I told you I could make you more powerful, what if I made you a monster… No a god… You wouldn’t need to rely on that wretched lantern in your chest for power anymore… You will be power personified…”
I looked at the flickering glow in my chest… My Phòs was dying out…
I raised my head and looked at him…
“You expect me to believe anything that comes out of your mouth…”
“Trust me… Bow before me… Join my camp… And I will give you a third of my kingdom when the war is over…”
I looked at him with disgust… “Never!!!! I pledge Allegiance to my King…”
He stood up in rage… ” I’m the ruler of all the realms… Anyone who stands against me is completely doomed…”
I stumbled up to my feet… I spoke back at him…  “I believe in the King of Zion… The Lamb in the Lion, the prince of Peace, the Negus Negasti…
I believe the King is coming back to take his kingdom”

” Blasphemy!!! “The dragon was boiling with rage…” No one leaves here alive…”
I looked at him and replied… “The King left here victorious…”
He rushed towards me and raised me high in the air by my neck… ” I could just end your life right now…”
I looked in his fiery eyes with a slight smile… ” The King says touch not my anointed.”
He raised his hands and conjured a red fireball…
“You imbecile… Have you forgotten you were once my slave… You belong to me… You are not pure or holy like them… You are as perverted as I am… That is your nature… Embrace it and reach your full potential.”
I looked in his eyes and replied… The old has passed away…  “I’m now a new creation.”
he burst out laughing loudly…  “Seriously… You actually believe that crap… So tell me… Why is the glow in your chest fading away?”
“You still don’t get it… The darkest hour is right before dawn…”
The dragon was fuming all over now…
“Enough of this nonsense… Have you forgotten you were once my slave… What makes you think you are better now… You wretched thing… Remember when you used to pray for the scraps that fell of my table… Remember when you used to crave for the sewage from my palace…”
I gave the dragon a sly smile…
“He told me you will remind me of my past… But don’t forget your future is worse off… The King will have your head when He returns…”
“Silence!!!! I command you to Shut up!!!!”
“I’m dead to you… You have no dominion over me…”
I felt the burning sensation within me again…
I looked down at my Phòs, The Glow was getting stronger…
The dragon noticed it…
I saw the fear in his eyes…
Exousia…
The was an explosion of Pure light energy from my Phòs.
The beam hit the dragon… Consuming his dark figure in pure light plunging him into his throne…
I noticed over 20 Fully armed deathstrikers emerging from different corners of the room.
My Uniform was almost done regenerating… A smile spread across my face as two flaming swords formed in my hands…
Meheran….
I was darting so fast… Slashing through the enemy, reducing them to pulp.
All of them were dead before they realized I had moved.
I charged towards the dragon and plunged both swords in his belly pinning him to his blasphemous throne.
He let out an Eerie shriek…
I pushed the blades deeper…
With thick steaming greenish blood oozing out of his mouth… He looked miserable… ” I hope you know that you can’t kill me?”
I withdrew my blades… “The king would have your head soon”
I turned around upon hearing a loud banging sound on the other side of the Doors to this grand hall…
There should be over 100 of them behind the door…
I gently walked towards it….
I felt the burning sensation within my being again…
The huge doors burst open…
The enemy poured into the room in their numbers…
Taqeph…
I burned my way through the rowdy mass like a spark burning through gunpowder….
Exousia…
A flaming lion Pounced out of My Phòs and began roasting the enemies who kept pouring into the room…
I darted towards the left side of the room.
Channeling all the energies flowing within my being into my fist… I charged towards the wall and hit it with everything I had.
The huge stone walls tumbled down. I jumped outside plunging into open space…
Plunging down at an accelerating speed… Head first…
Arms by my side… A smile spread across my face as the wind rapidly clashed with my body. I could feel the heat of my Phòs getting stronger…
Kanaph….
They were magnificent!!!!
Two huge White Wings, formed out of my shoulder blades…
They opened up and gently broke my fall…
With just one huge flap, I flew across the sky at lightening speed.

I was going back to my Home Zion….
Tchattt!!!
I looked down and saw the tail of an arrow projecting out of my chest…
The pain was like a ripple moving through my whole body…
I was rapidly loosing blood…
I began feeling very weak…
The wings faded away…
I began falling from the sky rapidly ….
I tried pulling the arrow out, but I didn’t have enough strength…
All I could see was total darkness….
To be continued…

Corpus Christi:Chapter 1

Chapter 1: Armageddon

The plane flew over the battle ground… We stood alert ready to dive down into the heated battle ragging all around us…
“Today we fight for our King!!!!!”
The voice of the captain of the royal Guard echoed through the rank and file of soldiers aboard the thousands of carrier planes that flew over the enemy lines…
“Today we fight for what we believe in… Today we take back what the enemy stole from us…
Today we claim our lost kingdom from the enemy… And when the King returns we shall all be rewarded and reunited with him…

Today we sacrifice our lives for a King who gave his very life up to save us…
Today the Dragon falls…
We might lose our lives, but this sacrifice is not going to be in vain…
We fight with all our might…
We fight for Zion!!!”
With those words of encouragement I pulled the hood of my uniform over my head and pulled up my mask to cover my face …
Like all the other Knight Templars I sprinted out of the plane into the open battle space…
All I felt was rage…
Hands by my side,Darting so fast like a speeding bullet , through the grossing battle raging all around me, gathering momentum as the wind blew against my dropping body…
I suddenly opened my arms and let out the long retractable hooked chains that were attached to my uniform… In mid air I  Launched them at my target… My hooks firmly locked unto  an enemy air pod.
Mehran….
Before he realized it my twin swords were moving divergently from the center of his chest, scattering him into very tiny pieces… I backfliped of the crashing vehicle and dropped a few hundred feet below… Landing in the ruins on the edge of Babylon…
Today the Dragon was going to fall…
I landed with a heavy tud in a crouching position.
I raised my head and saw a group of Deathstrikers gathering around me I stood up and slowly withdrew my twin blades…
Meheran
Bits and pieces of flesh and blood were flying all over the place as the enemy fell beneath my might…
I sped through the battle field reducing anyone who dared contend against me to minced meat… I was unstoppable…
I sped through the battlefield…
I could feel the burning sensation in my chest flowing through my whole being, converging in my blades and moving back into my being with a maximized inertia, flowing down my spine… I was about to explode.
A smile spread across my face…
Taqeph
My blades turned to rods of pure fire and I was nothing but a speeding fire ball raging through the battlefield reducing everything in my path to ashes…
The voice of the captain of the royal guard echoed in my mind through the telepathic com link.
“Fall back the raid is over…”
I looked before me and just a few yards away was a fallen Knight Struggling with a Leviathan…
I charged towards the beast… Ignoring the captain’s repetitive order to fall back…
Exousia
Part of my flame projected before me morphing into the form of a lion, the symbol of our King.
Charging towards the beast, preceded by my flaming lion. The fallen soldier looked at me shook his head and shouted… For Zion!!! Pufff… All I saw was a puff of smoke…
Noooo… I stopped in my tracks… Fell to my knees and rubbed my hands in the dust…
I could have saved him…
tud!!!! I blacked out with a heavy blow to the back of my head…
Images of the battle flashed through my mind…
I opened my eyes and my being was flooded with darkness and a horrible stench…
I looked around and all I saw was total darkness…
I was bound firmly… My four limbs were gradually being pulled apart…
I looked down at my chest…
The glow of my Phòs was flickering.
Nooo… The King is coming back for me…
My whole life flashed before my eyes… I remembered my life before the order… I remembered when I was a slave to the Dragon and his dark regime… We spent the whole day in the mines, we were tortured for pleasure at night. I remembered the day we got saved… I remembered It like It was only yesterday… The Knights of light raided our work site in a holy crusade…
I remembered the Knight slashing my chains and telling me I was free…
I never believed it was possible… The dark regime was all I ever knew…    We were born slaves to the dragon. We knew nothing else.
He looked me in the eyes and told me The King died so that all who believed could be set free… The King will return soon… When he does he shall reward his faithful servants… Do you believe?
The only reward I wanted was freedom… I raised my head and looked into his eyes and said… I believe…
instantaneously I fell to the ground in pain… I couldn’t move… It was like an earthquake within my bones… I felt the darkness leave me… I felt the cold fade out of my bones… I felt a spark of fire burning within my chest…
I looked down at it and there it was my very own Phòs… I could feel the power…
I was just 13 years old when the order became my new home.
My thoughts were interrupted by the presence of a Deathstriker…
“The dragon wants to see you…”
To be continued…

Note from the Author:
Hi guys… I hope you enjoyed this story… Lemme know what you think or expect. To be frank this wasn’t planned at all. I spent last night sitting out alone soaking real music from honest artistes…
The intention was to just write anything, and viola this was born.
I might continue it but I don’t know how far I will continue it( yh den things some) anyway you might see some strange words… They’re either Hebrew or Greek and are used in the story to represent abstract concepts. It will take a few paragraphs to explain each of them but I feel it’s best I leave your mind to run wild.
Like I said this is a creative writing experiment…
Yours Sincerely,WhoIsDeydzi…
