Chapter 10: The Underground Temple
With the temple he acquired, new responsibilities were given to Cashnaya. Part of this included inviting seekers of power from the religious, political, social and others from various walks of life to visit his temple.
He was also given a pamphlet on laws guiding power usage. One of them is that a member of the kingdom of darkness is not to use his powers against another member, unless one is erring.
One day, one of Kalu’s agents reported a religious gathering near his temple to him. He viewed the gathering through the occult screen in his temple and found it to be a church with all its members naked except for one man who had a bright ring around his head.
When a supernatural “ring” is seen around the head of an individual (signifying the presence of the Holy Spirit) it means he’s born again. Some people’s rings are dim while others are bright.
From his findings, the man with a “bright ring” wasn’t a member of that church, he only began attending because he couldn’t find his own denomination as he recently relocated. Cashnaya decided to finish him off.
He monitored the gathering on a Sunday and as the church service ended, he astral projected there. As the worshippers were coming out to the main road, including this Christian man, the Roman Catholic patrols were trying to controll the traffic of car users.
Kalu noticed a man with a car coming from an opposite end as this Christian was about crossing the road, so he quickly took over the body of the driver and controlled his leg, shifting it from the brake to the accelerator making the car go on full speed. He also made the car doors open so that even if the bonnet missed him, the car doors ajar won’t.
The car crushed many people and Kalu rejoiced in his temple. Later when he watched a playback of the entire scenario on his screen, he realized that the Christian man was actually spared. Not a single thing touched him. In fact, he learnt that he later helped them clear the corpses. Kalu’s joy quickly melted into disappointment, but he let it slide to focus on other duties.
Kalu then took the second egg from India and walked into a forest as instructed and chanted an incantation and smashed the egg on a floor.
Immediately, there was a quake which splitted the ground open and he was taken down in it. He descended and appeared before a powerful demon who asked him who he was and what he was doing in his kingdom in an unfriendly tone.
He introduced himself as a son of the Queen of the Coast, on a mission to gain more wisdom and power and also told him of his predicament. The demon said there was really nothing spectacular to explore in his kingdom but unlike during his first tour, he was free to ask questions which he would answer.
He saw some earthly birds flying around and he asked the demon what were they doing there. The demon told him that these birds were the ones responsible for helping them to plant supernatural trees (such as Tossy tree) on earth.
He also saw a deserted football field with many men and women chained to it. From the looks on their faces, they haven’t eaten for months. He asked about this from the demon and he told him that these were people whose souls were given to them in exchange by earthly donors who wanted to alter their lives through material wealth, good health or power. He said no matter how famished they look, they won’t die.
He explained to Kalu that pacts are made with the kingdom to give human lives in exchange for power. He mentioned the name of a certain prophet in Amaogudu, whose name Kalu had forgotten, who made a covenant with him that he would regularly supply two human heads for his power to manifest in his church.
The transaction went smoothly for years until the past few years when his debt accrued. After warnings, this demon and his army stormed into his church in fury, demanding their dues – causing a serious erosion to occur on the road leading to his religious structure. To the physical realm, the erosion was presumed to be caused by a massive flood, leading to much public complaint.
The man managed to appease the demon, but he admitted he will still end his life when he’s tired of his game. Kalu inquired how the erosion they supernaturally caused would be repaired, the demon said they have their own recognized construction company that will take up the task.
The demon also showed him on a large screen, pictures of many wealthy people, scientists, philosophers and elites. The demon told him that some of these people were dead while the others were still alive but all of them have been in partnership with the realms of darkness.
Some of these people, Kalu said he knew and were still alive as of the time of his writing. The demon said if any of these people should violate any of the laws guiding the kingdom of darkness, they will be subjected to the unchangeable penalty of death.
After spending three days with demon he realized that what he said about their own construction company repairing the damaged road was indeed true.
Chapter 11: My Last Battles as a Satanist
The queen arranged for Cashnaya to embark on a tour to all the fourteen kingdoms of darkness in order to incorporate all the wisdom and power needed in his operations. This journey took an entire month and after the visits, he was equipped with more power and knowledge.
The notice reached him that a massive crusade was to be held in Abiriba, his own base, tagged The Greater Abiriba for Christ 1989. This was to be his assignment.
Kalu first went out in his spirit body to one of his agents, a market woman. He appeared to her in the shop and instructed her to mobilize other agents to be present at the crusade venue.
He then drew up an agenda for a meeting with Satan and the queen of the coast on this matter. When Satan appeared at the meeting with the queen, he asked what his agenda was about and Kalu read it out without hesitation, “How to thwart the Greater Abiriba for Christ crusade.”
As he mentioned the word “Christ” they all could hear peals of thunder, a roar of fire and an invisible power forced the three of them to bow their heads to the ground for about 30 minutes. When they got up from the ground, Satan warned Cashnaya furiously to never use that name again in his presence ever again.
Satan began to boast that he had captured the town of Abiriba for as long as her existence. Cashnaya asked him which weapons he utilized and Satan said they were: pride, hatred, love of money and cultural activities. Hence, that upcoming crusade was an affront that must be resisted.
He ordered Cashnaya to mobilize all the agents under him into action and frustrate the crusade. After boasting some more, Satan eventually disappeared.
When he was gone, the queen walked up to him with a warm hug and that was precisely what was on his mind. The queen always seems to know whenever he feels like having sex.
While they were both gleefully having sex about 4:30 am (she would transform into a girl of about his age whenever they had intercourse), they were suddenly hushed into panicking as the whole place began to quake.
They disengaged and the queen changed back into her real form. At her command, their screen showed where the rumblings were coming from: a Christian man was preaching the gospel around Ameke Square (apparently, whenever the gospel of Jesus Christ is being proclaimed in the physical world, it causes ripples in the realm of darkness).
The queen chanted an incantation and a bottle appeared in her hand. She rubbed its gummy/sticky contents on Kalu’s face and commanded him to go after that preacher and stare at him face-face with that concoction and the demons would melt the preacher into natural water.
Kalu woke up physically, and left the house immediately. His family knew he had a habit of visiting the restroom every morning so they didn’t think it was unusual for him to go out at that time. After walking hurriedly, he located the preacher from a distance, but as he was about catching up with him, suddenly, two angels appeared and were walking towards him.
It soon got to a point that the angels were close to him and wouldn’t allow him go any further. He chanted an incantation against them, it didn’t work. He had been given a “special” ring when he visited Satan’s kingdom; the ring is called “the good, the bad, the destroyer.”
Satan told him that the demons attached to the ring would make a bad situation become “good”; turn a good thing into bad and would also destroy a bad thing/person. He used this ring against the angels as he had been instructed, but it didn’t faze them.
He couldn’t even stand in their presence as their countenance was like the sun in its zenith, so he began to stagger like a drunk. The two angels captured him and took him to a place in the woods where they had him tied down to a tree by bright white cords they produced from their bodies. They then left their two swords by each of his ear and left the place. The sword began to sing in a most melodious voice he had ever heard and later began to preach the gospel to him.
Though he found the message somewhat tormenting (each time the name of Jesus was mentioned, he would feel burns on his body) one line from the messages stuck with him: “I will make you fishers of men if you will follow Me.” Later, the angels returned, picked up their swords without saying a word to him and untied him.
By then, the day had dawned, he chanted an incantation to disappear but it didn’t work. He repeated it, still didn’t work. He then recalled when he visited Satan’s kingdom, he taught him that whenever he got defeated, he should walk two poles away from the site and repeat the incantation. He did that and he was taken to his room, and being fatigued, he slept off on the bed while his spirit travelled to his temple.
When Kalu’s mother returned from the market and found him lying on the bed, she got the shock of her life. She wanted to know how he entered into the room.
Kalu managed to mumble some excuse about the padlock not being properly locked, but his mother knew that was impossible. This padlock was brought by his brother from Cotonou and wouldn’t lock unless the key was removed from it.
He couldn’t seem to convince his mother of his fib, and that raised her suspicion. She confided in one of her friends who suggested they visit a witchdoctor. Even though Kalu’s mother wasn’t a Christian, she didn’t like anything involving consulting a fetish priest. But her friend urged her to go find out the spiritual identity of her son.
They visited a rather popular dibia whose name Kalu declined from revealing. He gave them a stick with which they were to touch the body of the person whose spiritual identity they wanted to know. This his mother did that night at about 2am. He was watching this with his spiritual eyes.
When they took the stick back to the dibia, he asked for the name of the person they were inquiring about and the moment his name was mentioned, there was pandemonium in the shrine. All his deities began to wail loudly in his ears and when they stopped, the heads of their images began to break to the ground. His powers began to crumble.
The dibia began to act insane, yanked off the wrapper from each of the woman (luckily they wore two) demanded for their money and sent them away bewildered.
After this incident, Kalu invoked Satan to his temple and consulted him with incantations. He was pleased. He charged him to fight like a soldier and deploy all the powers at his disposal in his assignment.
