PART 21
“ MY FATHER’S FARMLAND”
©️Opeyemi O. Akintunde

Oba, Ola and Ope were in a big farmland rushing towards a particular farm. They seemed very angry over something. Ope was the one leading the squad.

They got to a very large farmland, and written on it was “Sunkanmi Emmanuel”. Ola was carrying fuel, which she poured on the few crops on the Land. Ope followed suit by lighting a fire. The farmland caught fire and out of nowhere, 10 strong valiant looking men appeared. 2 of them spat out water from their mouths and quenched the fire, while the remaining 8 of them rounded the trio.

With hands as strong as hammer, they beat the trio to coma, and with their long legs they tossed Ola, Ope and Oba like footballs and kicked them faraway from Sunkanmi’s farm…

Mama Aladura snapped out of her vision…

“Ha!,” Mama Aladura screamed. She stood up from the mountain, while placing a call to her son…

“ Lucky, who is Sunkanmi Emmanuel?” Mama Aladura said to her son…

“He is a guy claiming to be a pastor…”

“ Ha!, he is not just a guy, he is a servant of God, a great one at that, I don’t know what business your wife has with him, but she must have done something against him, which made some heavenly beings to be angry with her… The man has angels working with his ministry, it is those angels that defended his interest…”

“ Ha! Mother!, What can we do, I told them I am bringing Ope to you, my wife is not dead…” Lucky said weeping

“ I am on my way to town already, which hospital are you at the moment?”

“ State hospital!”

“ Ok… in the meantime, let’s find how you can get to the pastor… it is very important…”

“ Why?”

“Lucky, stop your questioning and obey me for once…”

Lucky knew there was a deeper meaning to what his mother had just said. He was the only son of his mother who had three other daughters. He was the rebellious one. His mother had trained them in the way of the Lord, but he had always wanted to be on the other side of life…
He wanted the drinking, clubbing, smoking, womanizing part of life, but his mother would not agree, which made him to become rebellious very early always arguing with his mother…

At that point, he knew arguments was not going to solve his problem as Ope had been confirmed dead 5 minutes earlier, but he trusted the God of his mother could raise her up…

Sukki had heard the bad news from Austin. s€xy Sasha was dead, Strawberry and her brother were in coma…

“ God, three souls can’t be lost because of me, please father, bring them back!” Sukki cried in his bedroom.

The kick the valiant men had given the trio landed them before a big gate, that opened up to a large farmland…

A man dressed as a farmer who was the gateman of the farmland saw the trio. He walked up to them and told them to follow him…

The trio walked quietly behind the farmer as they approached a beautiful Farmhouse ahead…

When they got to the farmhouse, the farmer said from below looking up to the tall farmhouse.

“ Father, your children Oluwasomidoba, Idiopemipo and Kikiolaoluwa, the earthly children of Jenriayegbe have arrived…

HIM who was called FATHER Stepped out of His Farmhouse. He looked Ancient but Handsome.

The trio found themselves bowing before FATHER….

“ Oluwasomidoba, Idiopemipo and Kikiolaoluwa, what are you doing here? I wasn’t expecting you back here so soon, Oluwasomidoba, you still have 56 years more to spend, if you wanted to, while You two girls still have 57 years more to spend, so why the rush back home?”

“ We were cut down by the men watching over Sunkanmi Emmanuel’s farm” Oba said with regrets…

“ I know, I was just asking you why you let anger, unforgiveness to get the best of you.. You caused your untimely return yourselves… “Father said

“ We are sorry, we felt he was trying to grow poisonous crops on his farm that will destroy the lives of people since he wasn’t a well trained farmer” Ope said…

“ Really? Interesting! Idiopemipo, you seem to know so much about Sunkanmi’s farm, what about your farm?”

“ My farm ?”

“ Yes Idiopemipo, you have over 8 million people eating from your farm, what do you feed them?”

Ope became mute immediately…

“ What’s wrong Idiopemipo?, You have no answers for me… Well, Let’s take a stroll to your farm for inspection.Let’s see if you are better than Sunkanmi.”

FATHER walked down from the tall Farmhouse and the trio followed him…

As they moved on and passed different farms, they saw a name that was familiar “ JUMOKE JOHNSON”. The farm was very green with different fruits on it.

“ You remember her?” Father asked and the trio nodded as they remembered the first angel in human form they had met.

“She is a good woman, even in her pain, she still bears fruits…” FATHER said and the trio looked at each other surprisingly…

Miss Johnson appeared before them as she painfully tended her plants. Out of tiredness, she took frequent rests, but in no time, she picked herself up again and again removing weeds around the plants…

“Oh, you think she is dead, no… my daughter Jumoke is very much alive, I didn’t take her pain away because I wanted to use her as a great example to people on earth. Serving me and working tirelessly on her farm, even with her pains. Her rewards is with me and very great.. The world saw her as a barren woman, but to me she had a lot of fruits. You three were parts of the seeds I planted in her farm. She nurtured you till the time I took you away from her. My plan was to plant you with Ayowale and Banke, but Ola blocked the way for you three….She couldn’t stand Sunkanmi.” FATHER said but then faced Ola and spoke to her directly as they walked

“Kikiolaoluwa, As farmers, it is not out of the ordinary to get hurt, or to sustain injuries, when working on your farmland, some thieves may invade your farm and steal something precious, but that shouldn’t stop you from farming…Your being raped was part of the injury you sustained in working on your farm..” Father said but as he spoke, a scene played out before them….

Ola was tilling her ground, she planted a little crop on her ground, suddenly Sukki, Torture and Axe ran into the farmland and grabbed the crop, in the process, Sukki hit her with a big stick and poured some of the sand on her face…

FATHER continued…

“When you did your three days fasting and prayer, you told me to establish my purpose in your life, and part of your prayer was for Me to glorify myself through you… Ola, sometimes me glorifying myself through men maybe painful and uncomfortable for men, but in the long run my name is glorified in their lives. Olugbala(savior) my first Son; when he was also on earth prayed that I glorify myself through him. What did he get after that prayer? He was crucified, but note that it was in this crucification that I was glorified through him…. Now, He sits at my right hand.” Father had said

“You overcoming the rape and coming out strongly was to help other young farmers who may have sustained such injuries to know they can also survive and still make great things out of your farmland …, but instead you went on a revenge course…”

Ola was already shedding tears as she knew she had definitely done something wrong… From what father was saying, did it mean that she was meant to have made a ministry out of her past misery.

“We are here!” Father said as they reached a farm.

Oba, Ola, and Ope jumped back in fear. They were in front of a barren land, with no crops on it, but what was fearful was the fact that the land was filled with blood, the land was smelling terribly, there was a lot of poop scattered all around the ground, dead babies on the land, terrible looking creatures…

Ope tried to run away, but she couldn’t move her feet…

“Running away from what you see?, Idiopemipo You can’t, it’s your farm”

“No.. this cannot be my farm, this is blood on the farm, No crops but blood. I have never killed anyone in my life!’
Ope said in fear…

“You think?… Well, let me explain it better… this blood comes from different sources, but you being the brain behind the crimes, you have to be the one to account for them…”

“ Brain behind the crimes? What crimes?”
