Okakamuo : Hmmm….. You will hit on the ground 3x
Tochi : please great seer, the cannibals you are talking about, is it must that we will come across them? (She asked because she was scared and likewise the others)
Okakamuo : As far as FOREST OF DOOM is concerned, you can come across anything, but as long as you follow my instructions, no harm will come to you, and you shall all come back home safely with the mystery crown. and 4, which is the last, Always be observant and vigilant which is very important, make sure you follow all my instructions, if you want to come back alive, I hope you all understand what I said?
Maidens : yes! Great seer, we understand and we will do as you instructed (they all said)
Okakamuo : Good! Chika!! (He called with a loud voice)
Chika : yes great one
Okakamuo : you will be the leader of this search, you shall lead them all through the journey, and as for you people, you should listen to whatever chika tells you in the forest because she is your leader, and also do not forget to use the staff am about to give you because that staff is your protection and it will protect you from all danger, I repeat do not forget to use the staff in the forest because is necessary (he said and after that he gave them staff each and fortified them)
Maidens : Thank you great one, we promise to heed to your instructions
Obiageli : but great one! You gave us instructions and also fortified us, but you never told us where we can get the mystery crown, yes I know that we will get it in the forest, but where exactly are we going to see the mystery crown? (She asked and Okakamuo smiled for the first time)
Okakamuo : may wisdom never depart from you, yes that is a good question, I was expecting that, but non of you were able to ask me, apart from obiageli who just asked now, well you can only see the mystery crown in the place of doom, that place is a place of total silent, before you will see the crown, you will cross a stream, a very deadly stream for that matter, when you see the stream, you will cross it, but before you cross it, you will hit the staff on the stream 3x before you can cross it, but if you fail to do so, you are on your own risk, after you cross the stream, you will walk small and you will see a black cage, that cage is also known as cage of doom, that is where the mystery crown is, and if you are not careful, you will meet your doom there, so therefore, you all should be careful ( he warned again)
Amuche : we will do as you said great one (she said and the others nodded in agreement, they all spend the night there)
The next day morning, Okakamuo and the elders lead the maidens to the entrance of the forest)
Elder otunno : go well the great maidens of our land
Elder okoli : you all will go and come back safely with the mystery crown
Elder odogwu : iseeeeee…….. (Let it be so)
Ifeoma : (with almost tears) papa I will miss you and mama, please you people should take care of yourselves
Elder Nwakor : (sadly) I will my daughter and I will miss you too (he said and hugged her)
Okakamuo : Go well maidens of ekeama kingdom, may the gods lead you through and bring you safely with the mystery crown
Elders : Iseeeeee…….
Okakamuo : you can now go, your journey begins, I wish you good luck (he said and he and the elders turned to leave, while the maidens entered the forest, but immediately they step their foot in the forest, an unknown arrow which no one could see hit oge on her chest and she fell down and died instantly, while the other maidens screamed with fear when they saw this, the elders who turned back and saw this wanted to rushed there to know what happened to oge, but Okakamuo stopped them)
Okakamuo : (talking to the elders) if you go there, you will die
Elder okoli : (confusedly) But why great one, and what really happened? What killed oge?
Now the question is, what happened to oge? She died right? So what killed her?
