EXT: BUSH PATH- DAY
A notorious native doctor by name OTUOKE 55, is seen walking through a bush path murmuring to himself in anger and calling the name of the gods of the land.
EXT: CHUKWUDI ‘s RESIDENT-DAY
At the back of the house, CHUKWUDI 26, is seen trying to Keep the environment in order. His sister AMARACHI 23 is also seen clearing the bush. Suddenly Otuoke matches in. He moves straight towards the direction of Chukwudi who instantly stops what he’s doing as he sees him approaching
Chukwudi: (turns to him) Imieke, I greet you.
Otuoke: (looks at him angrily) Only a foolish fly follows a Corpse into the grave. Olaniyi,
I have come again to remind you of the promise your late father made before he died.
Chukwudi: (smiles gently) I know of the Promise, but you see, my father is no longer alive
We the children cannot and will never pay for what we know nothing of. he thought it was right for him to worship a lifeless god like that.
Otuoke: Don’t you ever speak about
the greatest god of this land in such a dreadful manner.
(Amarachi rushes out of the bush to his brother)
Amarachi: (to Otuoke fearlessly) Imieke, what is it again? We have chosen not to worship the gods of my late father any longer.
Why do you keep insisting that we worship your god?
Otuoke: (looks up to the sky) your grandfather and your father served this god and it is mandatory
for the entire family to continue from where they Stopped.
Chukwudi: we cannot continue to fool ourselves by Worshiping a lifeless Image. My siblings and I have chosen to worship the creator (he points to the sky) our master, the King of Kings, the mighty Man in battle, the undefeatable, unbeatable. I call him Omega.
Otuoke: (laughs at him) If I were you, I would Stop deceiving myself. For there is no god like
Amadioha, the alusi god of
Thunder and lightning.
Ijiji na-enweghi onye
ndumodu na-eso ozu ala
n’inyi. (laughs and goes away)
Amarachi: Brother don’t mind him.
We are not afraid of him neither are we afraid of that Amadioha
Or whatever it is called, we are Serving the living God, Omega.
Chukwudi: Let’s go in dear. For the lord Will never disappoint us.
