Episode 40

Ciara walked through the lonely part and finally came out to the front of the temple.

It was almost daylight and she needed no soothsayer to tell her she had to hurry up.

The Temple’s door was always open so she parted the curtains and entered.

It was still very dark. She bumped into a table and grouched.

“Hello? Someone here?” She called and almost immediately,a bright light flooded the room.

She opened her eyes slowly and saw the priestess standing in front of the inner entrance.

“You disturbed my sleep. To what do I owe this early morning visit?” Tabitha asked abs Ciara stood boldly in front of her.

“I need you help, priestess. I’m sorry if I disturbed you.”

“You are from sky squared,aren’t you?”

“I am.” Ciara replied and Tabitha shook her head with a crumpled look on her face.

“I’ve decided never to help anyone from Sky Squared. Get out.” Tabitha thundered.

Ciara stared at her. “Why?”

“Your master. You brought him here and rather than him paying off his debt ..he starts calling me Elizabeth! What a dramatic guy he is!” Tabitha was so furious.

Ciara was still staring at her. “If he calls you Elizabeth…then you are Elizabeth, priestess.”

Tabitha stared at her with her face softening. “What do you mean?”

“You do not know Craig. He’s a powerful creature,a rare gem and a walking angel. He would never trick you by deceiving you.

“He knows you, priestess. He does.” Ciara said with her eyes resting on Tabitha’s face.

Tabitha’s eyes rested on the ground and her fists tightened. “What do you want?” She asked in a strangled voice.

“I want to cage someone’s power. I need something that will help me do that.” Ciara replied.

Tabitha’s eyes rose to her face. “You shall get it.” She said and turned around then walked back into the other room.

Ciara stood there, waiting for the priestess. She glanced back and saw it was broad daylight. She became impatient, wondering if Craig has already noticed her absence.

The priestess returned and handed her a mirror _ white mirror.

Ciara took it from her, looking at it. “How do I use this?” She asked.

“Once she’s able to look into the mirror,it’s settled.” Tabitha replied.

Ciara smiled. “Really?”

Tabitha nodded. “You can go now ”

“You don’t want anything in return?” Ciara asked.

“You’ve already given me something in return. Go!” Tabitha ordered and Ciara turned and left the room.

She sighed and looked around then put the mirror under her gown. She started walking away, oblivious of someone watching her from behind a tree.


Tabitha sat down on a chair as soon as Ciara left and went into a deep thought about the Craig guy.

He was strangely familiar too and now,the lady had said she was Elizabeth if he called her so.

She had never been so confused. Lord Krishna had assured her she was born in the temple not in the world.

And truly, she had no idea of ever being in the world.

“No” Tabitha said and shook her head. She stood up and walked back into the inner room.

She needed to see Lord Krishna.


Fortunately for Ciara,she got back to the academy when no one was outside.

She successfully sneaked back into her room and once she got in there, she brought out the shinning mirror.

She smiled broadly and placed the mirror on her bed before sending for Ashley.

Ashley came into her room few minutes later, obviously still sleepy. “Girl… don’t you think it’s still so early in the morning?” She yawned.

Ciara rolled her eyes. “You are still sleeping when someone has already gone out to meet the priestess?”

Ashley’s eyes widened immediately as she sleep cleared off. “You’ve been there? Wow! What did she say?”

Ciara smiled. “Thanks for the idea, Ashley! She actually gave me something to use.”

“And what’s that?”

“This.” Ciara pointed to the mirror on the bed.

Ashley stared at it. “And what’s this supposed to mean? A mirror? What are you gonna do with it?”

“Her powers will be caged once she looks inside…”

“Oh no….” Ashley gasped, stepping away from the mirror.

Ciara laughed. “No. It’s not gonna harm you. It’s specially for her. The mirror will have to get broken before her powers can return.”

Ashley smiled. “That priestess is really something else. So… who’s gonna do the job? Egis gonna make her look into the mirror?”

Ciara smiled back. “Tammie will do the job.”
