{ one day calamity }


As the popular saying goes that

the evil men do lives with them, but what should I call my own

case, I was not a man, I was more

superior than that.

My evil deeds shouldn’t live with

me, it should all be buried into

the hole of forgotten bygones . The time I thought it was right to

refrain from my unwise and

stupid earthly feelings I was

gathering, then a disruption

occurred in heaven leaving me

totally exposed to human. Or was the disruption a means of

the supreme one reminding to

focus on my duty and stop my

immature behavior which has

glue to my body like a plague

from heaven down to earth. What was my fate as the

disruption has wiped off my

invisibility with nowhere for me

to escape, found out as my story


Tabitha on suddenly seeing a strange giant in her room with a

wing protruding from his back

and to worsening it, the strange

being was directly in front of her.

She screamed loudly and passed

out on her bed. Immediately I heard footsteps

running towards the room and

there was no where that I could

hide inside the room or escape


As the footsteps grew closer so do my heartbeats, tensions filled

all of my body and I could felt all

of my muscles twitching

My wings were erected, as if

ready to bust out any time

sooner, because it would be dangerous for those that are

coming if they saw me.

Then I saw the door knob turned

and the door opened, but at that

same moment I felt myself drawn

back into the spiritual realm, I was back to my invisible state.

I heaved a sigh of relief as

Ranking and Precious rushed to

Tabitha who was laying stiff on

the bed.

After calling her name for some time and she didn’t respond,

Ranking quickly carried her

running outside and Precious too

ran after them calling Tabitha’s

name repeatedly in a wailing

tone. Dandy and Aliyu were busy

discussing or should I say

arguing stupidly with each other

when we got out, on seeing

Tabitha in Ranking’s hand, her

back on Ranking’s arm with her head and leg tilted downward,

they quickly rushed towards him

” oga,wetin I do small madam,abi

I they play am for play with small

madam ni ” Dandy asked with his

deep hausa english intonation ” go and open the gate now ”

Ranking barked at him rushing

towards his car, and Dandy ran

helter-skelter towards the gate

almost tripping as he quickly

opened the gate. Ranking quickly unlocked the

lock of the car with the car

remote key in his hand, he

dropped Tabitha in the back seat

and quickly ran to the driver’s

seat only to meet Aliyu already seated there

” oga, oya key, make me I carry

her go ” he said to Ranking

stretching his hand towards him

to collect the car key

” fool ” Ranking screamed dragging Aliyu out of the car

roughly ,he entered it and started

the car, as he reversed it back a

little so as to have enough space

to speed out of the compound at

a go , he heard a loud crash at the back of the car, he quickly

got out of the car to see what

was it he banged,

” no no no no no ” he screamed

running to his wife who was

already on the floor with blood oozing from her head.

He quickly carried her too and

put her inside his car and sped

out of the compound.

The journey to the hospital was a

rough one as Ranking failed to obey all the road signs he saw,

and almost hit a policeman who

almost tried to intercept him to

bring his car to an halt. But he

didn’t stopped as he sped

towards him and the stupid policeman had to jump into a

nearby bush in order to save his


If not for me, all three of them

might even have end up under a

big truck. Ranking drove into the big

compound of Life First Memorial

hospital like someone being

chased by assassins.

He parked at the parking spot ,he

quickly brought out his wife,carried her and ran to the

emergency room,the nurse

seeing him brought out a

stretcher and collected her from

him, they rode her to one of the

free ward , a doctor followed behind them.

He brought out his stethoscope

to listen to her heart beat

” she’s going into shock ” he

suddenly screamed, “get me the

M E D ” he added placing his two hand on her chest adding

pressure to it

and a nurse rushed out and in a

minute she was back with the

defiberator .

The doctor collected and connected it to the heart rate

monitor and connect the monitor

to Precious arm.

room ←←←

Ranking was pacing around, his mind filled up ,he was muttering

some inaudible words,

Whenever he sees a nurse come

out of the ward, he will rush

towards her like a mad man

asking about the condition of his wife, but all he gets in return was

that he should be patient, that the

doctor is still with her.

Then after some time, Ranking

who had already completely

forgotten about Tabitha who was also in the car remembered her.

He ran outside like a thief and

met her still unconscious inside

the car.


I’ve already tried to wake her up from her unconscious state, but

she wasn’t waking up. I knew

she wasn’t dead and I couldn’t

decipher the reason she wasn’t

waking up.

I know divinity isn’t something to be revealed to a mere human, but

the supreme one should

understand that it wasn’t the little

girl’s fault that she saw it likewise

not mine also.

I could even say it was the heaven’s fault that she saw it

because if there wasn’t a

disruption in heaven nothing of

such would have happened.

I’ve heard about such event that

also happened many years ago when brother Basath was sent to

earth as a guardian angel of the

perfect one then. It happened 60

days ago before I got my own

mission as a guardian angel. So it

was approximately 600 years ago on earth.

There was also a disruption in

heaven then and brother

Basath’s visibility wears off, and it

occurred when he was in the

midst of many people, all the people who saw him died at once

except the perfect one who he

was guarding who became

unconscious .

It took the perfect one then 10

years before he finally woke up. It is not that angels can’t be seen

by human, but when the

supreme one want one of his

little one to see an angel, he

would have already prepare the

little one for it or would have taken something away from the

angel he wanted the little one to

see( am not going to tell you all

what the thing is, I can’t reveal all

the heaven’s secrets to you mere

humans, so forgive me for that ) ( I would like to call the thing X )

This thing that was removed from

angel will make their power less

effective and they can be easily

overcome by demons or strong

human. So the supreme always allow the

messenger’s sector headed by

brother Gabriel to be have the

ability to be seen by human

without anything happening to

them. So all the messengers in heaven

doesn’t have X in their body.

That was the case of brother

Hapaya who the supreme sent a

message through to one of his

beloved little thing on earth then called Haba in heaven but on

earth his name was Jacob.

He was able to fought with

brother Hapaya then because

brother Hapaya doesn’t have X

inside his body. But because of the war we

guardian angels have to fight on

earth, X must be present in our

body which made it a taboo for

little ones to see us.

After the case of brother Basath, none has happened again

except mine that happened that



Ranking quickly bundled Tabitha

out of the car and rushed her to the emergency room.

Another sets of nurse collected

her on the stretcher and head to

another empty ward and another

doctor followed them.

Life First Memorial Hospital was one of the biggest hospital in

Lagos, its was said to be own by

a foreign family who has been

dwelling in Lagos for a very long


The hospital was being managed by the family and it was said to be

of the same standard with some

hospitals in Europe.

Everyday is always a busy day for

the doctors and nurses working

in the hospital. The hospital in order to have

efficient administration of its

patient has many doctors and

nurses who are highly qualified.

Many politicians and wealthy

people whose illness is serious and doesn’t want to be fly out of

the country for care are always

being referred to Life First

Memorial Hospital.

The ward which Tabitha and

Precious were, was a little bit far from themselves but on the same


Ranking was seen pacing the

corridor, he couldn’t stay at a

single place.

After an hour with some minutes passed, the two doctors in

charge of the two wards came

out of their ward the same time,

Ranking was in the middle, he

kept switching glance between

the two doctors not knowing who he should approach first,

because the two doctor’s face

showed that they have bad news

for him.

The doctors met him at the

middle when it seems to them that he was stagnant at the spot

he was.

“Let go to my office ” one of the

doctor said and they all followed


” Mr Ranking am sorry to say this to you, but I think your daughter

is in coma ” one of the doctor

said with a sad tone after they’ve

settled down.

“What do you mean by that ”

Ranking asked standing up almost screaming

” you need to calm down sir, she

will wake up ” the doctor said

trying to calm Ranking

” and when is that happening ”

Ranking asked with a shaky voice

” soon ” I assure you sir

” okay, what about my wife ”

Ranking said facing the second


” I think it’ll be good if you can calm your nerve first before I tell

you the news ” the doctor replied

trying to get out of the office

” tell me, I’m man enough to

handle whatever it is, or is she

also in coma ” Ranking enunciated intercepting the

doctor from going out.

” okay if you say so, due to the

impact to which she hit her head,

she’s developed an haemorrhage

from it, we tried our best but we weren’t able to save her, I’m

sorry but she’s dead ” the doctor

said moving away from Ranking

” what do you meant by she’s

dead ” Ranking screamed

dragging the doctor back to him, he held the doctor by his collar

screaming at him .

” what exactly are you trying to

say ” he screamed at the doctor

again .

” I’m sorry sir, but she’s dead ” the doctor replied him freeing

himself of Ranking’s grip on his


The world became void and

numb to Ranking, everything

seems like a dream to him, he wished it was a dream.

Tears wasn’t coming forth in

order to comfort his heart a bit.

He was walking absently minded

out of the emergency room, he

needed someone to soothe his soul.

He couldn’t believe that

everything happened just in a

day, as he was about to get to his

car, he saw an ambulance sped

passed him and halt just a little distance from him.

The medical officer inside it

quickly wheeled out a stretcher

out of the ambulance and

someone who looked familiar

followed the stretcher wailing. ” Yemi ” Ranking said inaudibly




Who could that be?….
