BEFORE THE DARKNESS FINALE EPISODE

Lange watched as his wife was dragged in by one of the terrorists. He had sworn that he will not give the code to the terrorists no matter what. But now he was not so sure. His wife looked at him and he looked away. Whatever her face going to say, he was not ready to see.
“So Mr President, now we have your wife here. What do you say?”
“Don’t give them anything they ask for Johnson!” His wife shouted. “They’re going to kill me anyway.”
“She’s right, we will kill her anyway, if that’s what she wants. But do you want her to suffer before she dies?”
Lange kept his head down. There had to be another way. He heard some movement and he looked up; the terrorist approached his wife and put his hand around her head. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE SIXTEEN

The room grew silent at Orunmila’s revelation. Eric looked at Sango, his face was blank. Everybody waited for Orunmila to continue. He did not. Eric turned around and walked away from the group. He wondered what he would have felt if he was in Sango’s shoes. He shrugged, it was no big deal. He did not even know who he was until a few months. But there was something bigger at risk – the fate of the world. It had been an unspoken understanding amongst them all that Sango would be the one to end Sarkin Aljan’s reign of terror. But now, it seemed the world was doomed to its end, except help came from somewhere else. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE FIFTEEN

Sarkin Aljan brushed his blazer with his palm and smiled. It was almost over. President Lange had called him to fix a meeting and he fully expected the man to relinquish power to him. Sometimes he felt pity for the man. No president would have fared better than he did. Maybe they would not have handed the portal over to save a mistress but eventually they would all have failed. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE FOURTEEN

Eric shifted on the cold concrete bench. His back ached, so did his legs. He had now been in the police cell for hours and no position he tried was convenient anymore. He stood and screamed in frustration. The policeman seated out his cell eyed him and went back to his work. The policemen were keeping a close eye on him, they always had someone watching. And they were smart to do that. He had not seen too many policemen in the station when he was brought in so he had thought of nothing but escape for the first few hours. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE THIRTEEN

Damola opened his eyes and for a few seconds he did not know where he was. He looked around and then he remembered. He was on a tree outside of Sarkin Aljan’s compound. It was getting dark and quiet and he could not see through the leaves so he slowly dropped down. He stood still and as close as possible to the tree and looked around; he saw no one. Something was wrong. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE TWELVE

Sarkin Aljan limped away from the room. He had been caught off guard by Sango’s attack. There was no way he could have known that he was one of the soldiers, his idiot helpers did not know too. He knew why he came; Oya! He immediately sent his men to secure her cell, if Sango did not get her, he would come back.
He just suffered ridicule again in the sight of the president and his people. First, he could not destroy Asaba as he promised, now his public execution was disrupted. He was not sure, but with Sango now working with the soldiers, he must have been the one to stop the portal too. He now saw Ibilis’ point; Sango was going to be a great threat. But it was only a matter of days. In three days, Nigeria would fall and not even Sango can do anything about it this time. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE ELEVEN

Damola dusted off his khakis and jumped off the Humvee into the darkness. He could tell the soldiers were not comfortable with the fact that he did not have a gun. He was not one of them; he knew it and so did they. The leader of the team – Major Madu had made all the plans without any major function given to him. He did not mind though, he had his own plans.The president had drafted him into a tactical team to go and rescue somebody. He was not sure who the person was, but she was definitely important. He accepted reluctantly; it was better to be out than being locked up in a cell. He got more excited when he learnt they were going after Sarkin Aljan. He had not had the time to make another attempt at rescuing Anne; this could be his chance. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE TEN

Sarkin Aljan kicked the man in the stomach again even though he was dead. The other men took another subtle step away from him, fear was plainly written on their faces. There was something clearly written on his own face too; it was anger! He had done everything perfectly, he had set up the portal, connected to the right star but everything had been destroyed. The man he had just beaten to death had nothing to do with the soldiers taking over the portal, he was just the closest when he heard the news. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE NINE

Segun looked out of the window, there was nothing, still. He had threatened the president of the country, it was not so smart but he really had no choice. His mother was clearly not going to call him, ‘I don’t want to put him in trouble’ she said. “When you are a President and you commit adultery, you are already in trouble!” He had retorted,fuming. His call did not seem to have any effect on the president though. It  was almost twenty four hours and he had not heard anything from anyone. He considered telling his mother. The president she was trying to protect was going to let her die without even trying to save her. Continue reading

BEFORE THE DARKNESS EPISODE EIGHT

It was six days since he woke up in a strange house in Esu’s bed and a lot had happened since then. Now that he knew who and what his opponent was he was more interested in listening to Orunmila. He had listened to everything he said and it had helped him. He discovered that he had incredible power and according to Orunmila, he was yet to discover the half of it. He felt ready to attack Sarkin Aljan again but Orunmila would have none of it. Anne was still being held by Sarkin Aljan, it was only a matter of time before he went without Orunmila’s consent.
“Put on the TV!” Continue reading
