A week after a memorial of Mark Ndlovu .We meet a pregnant woman and a widow called Minnie Ndlovu .The candle blazed day and night in her bedroom without stopping .She is a woman of prayer even during difficult moments her faith in God never went astray .The days of giving birth to a son approached .One early cold morning in Carletonville the door bell rang .Minnie answers the door.

"Hello Minnie .How is you?" Sophie asked.

"I'm all right" She replied with a big smile on her face and asked "And you?".

"I'm good .Is good to see you again .Can I come in?" Sophie asked.

"Sure .Let I help you with the bags".

"Thank you. Be careful not to hurt your little angel". They both entered the house.

"Sophie would you like some coffee?" She asked.

"What? No girl sit down .I should be the one asking you that kind of question .I will make you coffee".

A bashful smile appeared on Minnie's face and said "Why are you treating me like a baby?"

Sophie said "Minnie you are like a sister to me .You are the closest person in my life and I'm here to help you with the house work .So anything you want I will do it for you" .Minnie was comforted by her words and said "Wow .Thank you Sophie".

"You are welcome" She replied and opened the kitchen cupboard. She took out two mugs preparing them to pour coffee .Minnie asked her a question "How long are you going to stay here with me?"

She said "Until you get back to work .Here you go" She handed her a mug of a steaming coffee and sat on couch.

"Thank you" She said and proceeded "You know since my husband died I been having nightmares about him. In the first dream he had a huge knife on his right hand and walked toward me .Next to me there was a young boy and Mark said to that boy 'You have no future in this world .I need you to come with me.....' ".

"What?" Sophie interrupted her report and asked "And what happened?"

"I woke up and prayed wanting to know what the dream meant" She said and proceeded with another report "In another dream I was strolling with this boy Downtown. Suddenly Mark appeared with a dark horrifying costume .The boy ran away and he came near me saying 'Why are you making it difficult for me to reach my goal? Like it or not. I'm going to take him away from you' .I woke up and prayed .Tears rushed down my cheeks because the message of the dream was very clear .I'm going to have a miscarriage Sophie" As she concluded tears emerged from her eyes .She placed a mug on a coffee table and asked "Why is God not listening to my prayer?".

Sophie said "It's going to be all right .Trust in God with all your heart" She gently held her hand as a result of comforting her "In all ways submit to him, He will make your path straight .He will change an unpleasant environment of your life into everlasting happiness .He will never let you suffer .Recall the book of Deuteronomy 20:4 saying 'The Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory' .Minnie God will fight for you just be calm".

"But...Why would my husband want to be my enemy?" Minnie wiped off her tears using a hand and continued "Or...maybe I didn't fulfil some of his orders?"

"No, no, no" Sophie said "Don't blame yourself for what you do not know .So honey look your baby has a future in this world .Don't lose faith in God .If God is for us, who can be against us?".

"I believe you are right .I cannot allow this demon shape my future for me" She stood up and Sophie followed "I'm very proud of you" She said as she hugged her .Minnie said "Thank you very much for boosting my faith in the Lord" She glanced down saying "Sophie can I ask you one last thing?"

"Sure .What?"

"Can you help me with my laundry? I don't have any clothes to wear".

Sophie answered "Sure no problem .I will start by cleaning the house then your laundry will follow .Just take a rest I will do everything for you".

Minnie said "Thank you again .You are really a good friend, I will be in my bedroom if you need me".

Sophie did the entire house cleaning and the laundry .As the day faded the shadows started to consume the entire surface of Carletonville .All the twinkling stars reflected their beauty .The Moon turned into a polar planet and the cold winter wind whistled over the city .Indoors occupying a dinner table and exchanging talks. "What do you mean you don't want to get married?" Minnie asked.

"I guess I'm not ready yet" Sophie replied.

"When do you think you are going to be ready?" She asked again.

"Minnie, I don't know honey maybe if I can get a right guy" Sophie replied .Minnie looked deep in her eyes and asked "Oh, I see .So what happened to Kelvin?"

Sophie said "Kelvin and I are just friends and that's all".

"The way you were holding hands last month at my birthday party that didn't appear as a sign of friendship to me or do you have any reason to explain that picture?"Minnie asked .A bashful smile appeared in Sophie's face and said "He is a white guy".

Minnie asked "So you are saying to me that love has boundaries?"

"No, I am not saying that .Look...." She took a breath before proceeding "I do love him but is hard to tell your boss that I love him".

"Do not worry I will tell him for you" Minnie replied and a tiny feeling of fear struck Sophie's heart and said "What?!"

"Sure I will tell him for you" She replied and asked "Dinner was great .Where did you learn how to cook like that?" Minnie stood up.

"From my mother .So are you going to bed already?" Sophie asked.

She said "Yes and I will see you tomorrow honey .Good night".

Sophie also said "Good night".

Minnie entered her bedroom .She lit a candle and asked God on her knees.

"O Lord, The great and wonderful God.

Hear my prayer; Please let my cry for help reach your ears.

When I call, answer me before my son's future vanishes like a mist in daytime.

I cry to you for help every morning and evening, why. O Lord, do you reject me?

Please do not keep silent, on my bed I recall you because you are my only help.

Please hear my prayer, O Lord.

Enemies want to shape my life for me.

My Lord gives as aid against the enemy.

With you, O Lord........... ".

A strange baritone voice reached her ears "Minnie Stop It!!!" She kept mum and the voice proceeded "Now you can open your eyes".

She opened her eyes in her vision she saw her husband .Fear charged her body and she stood up "What? No?" And she screamed "Sophie Help!!"

The ghost said "Nobody can hear you .Screaming is meaningless just look around you" As she looked she saw nothing but a clear field with no end .Out of nowhere the boy invaded the scene in a matching distance between both of them .The phantom said "So can we get down to business or do I need to explain myself to you why am I here?".

She asked with tears in her eyes "Why are you doing this to us Mark?"

He said to her "I believe you are thirsty to hear the truth .The naked truth is that my soul needs to rest .I don't have anywhere to go .I sinned against my forefathers .I had failed to sacrifice the lives of animals to my gods during my being in your world .For them to allow me on their site is to do a Child sacrifice .It is the only way to please them in order to forgive my sin".

"No, no, no" She said "This is wrong .You can't do this to me".

The ghost said "Listen .I have a simple task for you .You have to spill the child's blood after that you have to call our gods and ask them to forgive me .That's all .I plea you to do that job for me because I can't do it in this form".

Minnie said "No .I won't do that and you have no right to tell me what to do .Look I have an idea, Why don't you go to Hell for a while I promise you are going to love it and is very suitable for evil spirits like you".

"So you believe that's funny .I'm not asking you to do the Child sacrifice, I'm telling you! .Minnie what's the use of rejecting?" He asked waiting for no answer "The foetus internal your womb already lost connection with you .It simply means you are carrying a flop, A none living baby .I have his soul with me .If you don't mind we have to go .Just be a good girl and do your job" He concluded and walked away .The boy followed him .Minnie's eyes liberated crystal liquid and she shouted "Nooo!!!! Bring back my baby you Monster!!" As she said the environment changed very quick .She found herself in her bedroom again .Sophie only picked the last signal of her voice and rushed to her bedroom .She found Minnie on her knees "Minnie what's wrong?"She asked.

"Ah!" That was no reply but labour pains began "I believe the baby is coming" She replied.

Sophie said "All right just stay calm I'll take you to the hospital .I have to go start a car I'll be right back" Sophie went out to start a car .Minnie with tears in her eyes asked a single question "God, Why me?".

Within few seconds the atmosphere turned black .The Moon was obstructed by dark clouds .A propelled lightning from Heaven made contact with Earth surface .The snoozing Earthquake woke up .A strange visitor entered Minnie's room without knocking .He was wearing white clothes which emitted white light .He was glowing like an evening star .He said to a woman "I'm an angel of God .I came to report to you that everything you requested by faith it was successfully done for you .As I depart your room you will see change with bare eyes".

Minnie in pain said "O Lord, Thank you" and asked "But what about Mark?".

The angel replied "He will finally rest forever .He will never return and disturb your sleep ever again .That's what God promised you".

As a promise was made to a woman, The angel vanished like smoke .Sophie went back to the bedroom .The time to take Minnie to the hospital was up, The baby wanted out .Sophie's little experience contributed in a delivery of a foetus .Just like the angel narrated parturition was successful .The first bawl of an offspring satisfied the mother's heart and her last words were "God, You are amazing .My innocent baby was dead for a moment but you revealed to me your unbelievable strength .He finally has a future in this world and I'm a happy Mother because of you" In her eyes tears of joy came out "Thank you, O Lord .Thank you".
