DAILY DIET NOTIFICATION

*****DAILY DIET NOTIFICATION*****

Should I say Happy New Year? Oh! I've said it already. But, what I actually wanted to say was LONG TIME. Do you still remember the story we read last on Daily Diet? Well, after the story, we went on a two-week break, and after the break, we started Stories Request. Stories Request is a time when we get to request for any story of our choice, and we get to read the complete episodes of the story. All through last week, we took requests from our Whatsapp readers. So, this week, we would be focusing on Facebook readers alone. The next story is going to be mind-blowing. Wait, did you just doubt me? OK. Read this:

"She vowed never to show her true love to her husband again, unless he takes her to Paris on a vacation, without she asking for it..........He has done all he could to win back her love, except GIVING UP"

Well, all I can say is that you should saddle up, as the next story coming your way might sweep you off your feet. Did I also tell you that the hardcopy of the books A PHONE CALL, THEY ARE AMONG US and CELL 91 are almost ready, but the E-book format of the books are available for just #100 per E-book. Message me on how to order for an E-book format of a story. Before we take the new story, we would take STORIES REQUEST. For those who might not know what STORIES REQUEST is all about, it is mainly about you requesting for any story of your choice (from the titles below). The fun there is that you get to read the complete episodes of whichever story you pick. To request for a story is very simple. Just message me the title of the story you want, and I'll send the complete episodes of the story to you. But note the following; you cannot request for a story on someone's behalf. Meaning, whosoever wants to request for a story would have to message me directly. For Facebook, simply send a private message to me (Ofmat Austus Nwanne). Please, note that you can only make one story request per day, and stories request ends this Saturday (20th of August). If you make a request and you don't get it on time, just be patient as no request would be left unattended to.

 

Below are the titles of the stories.

THEY ARE AMONG US (Episode 8: The Final Saga)


Amaka did not know what to say, because she didn't expect things to turn out the way they did. Not even Agidi himself expected things to go that way. She had so many words rushing and struggling to come out of her mouth, but the words seemed to be too much that they got stucked in her throat. She didn't like the way things were turning out at all, not even an inch did she liked. As far as she was concerned, her freedom was not up for delibration or negociation, especially when Agidi promised her that her freedom would not be prolonged once she succeeds in the two major assignments given to her, and with her freedom in mind, she carried out the tasks so well, and even earlier than expected. "Master, I want it now" Amaka protested. "You just have to be patient" Agidi suggested. "Master, I want it now." Amaka said again. "I want my freedom now." She added. "See, I have great plans for you, and it's only a pity that you can't see them" Agidi said. Amaka was almost moved and trapped by Agidi's words about having great plans for her, but almost immediately, she came back to her senses. "Master, I don't want any of your promises or plans anymore. All I want right now is my freedom." Amaka said. "You promised that once I finish the two assignments I just executed that you will free me." Amaka added. "Yes. I know I said that, but I didn't know you will execute them so soon" Agidi said, trying to justify himself. "You didn't know I'll finish them so soon as how?" Amaka asked. "but you were the one who told me that I should be fast in executing the assignments because there is no time." She added. "hmmmmmm…..I know. I know." Agidi said. "It's just that I have not started making plans for your freedom" Agidi added. "Make plans for my freedom?" Amaka asked, as if talking to herself. She was trying to understand what Agidi meant by making plans for her freedom, because she knew that it cost Agidi less than a twinkle of an eye to set someone free. "See, things have changed" Agigi said. "You have been in the human world for so long, and you don't know what is happening over there. Did you know that the Middle Passage has been blocked?" Agidi asked. "Middle Passage has been blocked? By who? When? How?" Amaka fired series of questions out of amazement. "Who else would block it? The Great One ofcourse" Agidi replied, trying to make Amaka pity him. The Middle Passage was the gateway between their world and the human world, and if it was blocked, Amaka knew that there would be no channel for them to get to the human world, or go back to theirs. "But, if the Middle Passage has been blocked, how come Agidi travels freely between the two worlds?" Amaka asked herself. "How come Agidi is able to deploy more disguised agents into the human world on a daily basis?" She wondered. That was when it crossed her mind that Agidi was lying yet again, and she hated herself for almost falling for yet another lie from the father of all liars.

 

"But, tell me, how were you able to get Steve down like that?" Agidi asked with a small smile rising at one corner of his mouth. He deliberately wanted to change the topic to something else different from Amaka's freedom. Amaka on the other hand took the bait. She felt like a victor as she started narrating how her visit to Steve's house got the whole job done. "When I got to his house" She started. "I was surprised to see that the Angels that watch over his room were no where to be found. I didn't know what happened, but those Angels were gone." Amaka narrated. "Really?" Agidi asked. "Are they not the same Angels you say always prevent you from entering his room because their eyes radiate with fire?" Agidi asked. "Yes. They are the ones." Amaka replied. "Hmmmmm...definitely, he must have done something unholy that grieved them, and made them leave?" Agidi said. "Something unholy?" Amaka asked, rhetorically. "Could it be..." Amaka tried to think, but stopped half way. "Could it be what?" Agidi asked. Amaka was silent for some seconds as if thinking. "Could it be anger?" Amaka asked. "When I got to his house, he was angry and very furious. I met him arguing and shouting at the top of his voice with one of his neighbours." She started narrating again. "From what I deduced, his room is very close to the bathroom, and I think his neighbours do drop their buckets of water at his doorstep to pick one or two things, before going to the bathroom. He had warned them severally to desist from such an act, and I think one of his neighbours did the same thing today, so when he saw it, he poured the bucket of water away, and angrily smashed the bucket on the floor." Amaka explained. "When the lady came back, a serious argument ensued between them, and I was the one who even prevented him from beating the lady." She added. "I later begged him to enter his room, and it was while trying to calm and pacify him in his room that I seduced him." She said. Agidi clapped his hands to appreciate Amaka's good performance. "Wait a minute..." Agidi said all of a sudden. "Did you say he fought with the lady?" Agidi asked. "No oooooo. He didn't. He only slapped her once, and the lady slapped him back." Amaka replied. "They slapped each other, and you said they didn't fight?" Agidi asked, rhetorically. "You don't know anything. That is enough evidence to use against him before his creator." Agidi said, laughing heavily. "I have to go now. I have to go and accuse him before his creator." Agidi said. "But what about my free...?" Amaka wanted to ask, but she was interrupted by Agidi. "Get busy with another assignment. We'll talk about your freedom when I return." Agidi said, as he vanished from Amaka's eyes. Amaka stood, looking like a lost child. She expected to get her freedom, and Infact, she had celebrated her freedom after leaving Steve's house. "Well, maybe I should do more assignments so as to impress Agidi to give me my freedom." She said, as she scrolled through her phone contacts to call yet another guy. 


=====EPILOGUE======

People like Amaka will never gain their freedom because either they know it or not, their assignment is to be among us, eat like us, live like us, work and walk with us, but bring about our downfall. Physically, they don't look different from us. Infact, most of them are even more handsome and more beautiful than us. Guess what, most of them have also upgraded the way they work by coming to our places of worship, and mixing with us, thereby, making it very difficult for us to single them out. Some of them have the aim of pretending to be good, just to get married to us, and after the wedding, they make life difficult for their victim. I don't know much of their ways of operation, but all I know is that, it's not their fault. They will always find a way around us if we don't know where we stand. Some of us are so careless and care-free with life, that we don't pay attention to salient spiritual matters at all. We totally believe in co-incidence, forgetting that there is no co-incidence in the spiritual realm, neither is there distance as well. We live our life without being sensitive to the things around us, and that is why, when some "common" things happen to us, we simply over-look them, forgetting that there might be a great spiritual undertone to most things that happen to us in life. Has anybody ever told you that life is a battle? Well, I just did, and the battle is not for the broad-chested individual, but for the spiritual and sensitive individual. THEY ARE STILL AMONG US.

The story has spoken for itself, so also has the Epilogue spoken for the story. So, there is no need for me to say anything again. I give all glory to God Almighty who is the only and main source of my inspiration. Without Him, there would be no me. I also appreciate Him for making this story come to the final episode, because the challenges faced in the course of writing this story, I must say, I have never faced such in my years of writing Daily Diet. To Him alone be all the glory. To all the readers and fans of Daily Diet, I say a great THANK YOU for your patience and understanding. You are all wonderful.
