“The Virus Which is gradually becoming the cause of a global pandemic has to be curtailed. Therefore, since we are yet to find the cure for the Virus, after much consultation with experts in medicine & science especially from Miss Ruth Waziri, We have been advised to Shut down the nation to reduce less traffic and congestion of people in public places. Hence, all citizens are to stay indoors from Monday, the 22nd of June, which is in two days time. All public offices and privately owned businesses that do not offer essential services should please shut down so as to help curtail the spread of the Virus.
Tourists who can return to their countries within the next 48 hours should Please do, and those who can not should stay in their h0tels for the period of time it will take the government to get a lasting solution to this pandemic. My hope is that other nations will follow this Shut down measure advised by the International Health Organisation. We all thought this was just an epidemic, but now we can see it has crossed nations becoming a pandemic and therefore responsible nations need to work together as one to fight….” President Brian said on National TV.

Chief Larry had watched the news from his room. He knew what that meant. He and his staff had to return back to Nigeria. The holiday was over. He placed a call to the airline asking for seats to return the next day, but unfortunately all the seats had been taken.

“ Wendy, I told you, some wicked people are up to something. I told you they will keep people indoors..” Massai said to Wendy

“ Massai, This has nothing to do with your fake theories. This Virus will fade away some day, we should be responsible enough to stay indoors. What we should bother our heads about is this emergency packing of our stuffs and returning home. You know how much I hate packing…” Wendy was saying and before she could wrap up her statement, Massai was gone ….

“ Where has he gone to now?” Wendy said very frustrated

Stone was speaking with Emmanuella over the phone.

“ What do you mean you don’t know when you will be returning, ELLA… get on the next available flight. You know I never liked the idea of travelling during the Virus Outbreak, but you insisted on going…. that was why I told you to take your daughter with you….So, tell your boss to get you down here before Monday.”

“ But there are no more flights…” Ella said calmly

“ I don’t care…” Stone Said

“ You don’t care?… Stone why are you always thinking about yourself, you just want me home so I can wash, cook and be opened any time you like…”

“ You want me to get a replacement..?” Stone retorted

“ If you think that is what is next!” Ella said madly

“ Fine…” Stone replied before hanging up…

Silence enveloped the room like a huge presence, Rejoice could tell her father must have shouted on her mother as usual.

“ Does Daddy think we don’t want to come home?” Rejoice thought silently…

Folabi was happy at the news that they had been shut down in Bribia Island, he wanted more time with Emmanuella.

Sharon was so happy they had to remain in Bribia, She could see Folabi was proving hard to get, but she knew he needed more time.

Henry had been squatting with Xavier. Xavier had heard he was stranded, and was waiting for his father.

Smart couldn’t believe that he was going to be shut down with his wife much longer than the days he had been bearing. He had been surviving the past few days, he couldn’t wait to return to his country and meet his side-chic. He and Seun had not touched each since they got to Bribia Island. They were good at pretending…

4 days later

Rejoice started throwing up…. Her Fever was high… Emmanuella wished she could swap places with her daughter.

“God, I hope my daughter doesn’t have the Virus…!”

“ Ma’am, Your daughter will be fine in few days time. I believe this is her first time in a cold region?” The Bribia Island doctor said to Ella.

Ella heaved a sigh of relief.

“ Your daughter doesn’t have the Virus, she will be fine in no time…!”

Normalcy returned to the Island as everyone’s blood pressure had risen up, the moment they heard Rejoice was sick and throwing up, an alarm rang in everyone’s head.

Everyone thought Rejoice had the Virus, but on hearing the news that she was fine, the fun atmosphere of the Island returned.

Xavier was disappointed Rejoice didn’t catch the Virus, but in between, he began to have that tiny hope that he might be negative…

Unfortunately that was not the case…

48 hours after Rejoice’s episode, Ella developed symptoms of having the Islingbee Virus. She tried to curtail and hide it. She used all her First Aid pills she brought along, but her Fever was getting worse…

“ God, I am your child, the Plague of the Egyptians should not come near me…The Children of Isreal experienced Goshen in Egypt!”Ella cried unto the Lord from her heart as she threw up for the sixth time.

“ There was a major sacrifice before Goshen… Are you ready to make the Sacrifice?” Ella heard the reply, but she couldn’t decode what it meant…

Chief Larry was begining to feel overwhelmed, he was spending more than what he budgeted for the trip. He decided to call a meeting where he told everyone they had to be careful with their expenses despite being an all expense paid trip, they had exceeded the days planned…

All of a sudden Ella threw up in the meeting on Sharon… Sharon went into a fit but what was surprising to her and everyone was the way Folabi rushed towards Ella. Ella’s vomiting was continuous. Rejoice began crying as she saw the way her mother was throwing up uncontrollably.

“ We need to take her to the hospital” Folabi said

“ Sure!” Said Chief Larry.

Everyone was in that shock state, because they were all thinking the same thing …

“ Ella must be infected and If she is, I must be, because I ate from her bowl of ice-cream yesterday “ Seun thought Silently

“ Ella has the Virus, I must have it as well…This morning I gave her a peck” Chief Larry’s Multibillionaire Wife reasoned quietly…

Lara Cole -Larry was the daughter of one of the richest Oil Barons in Africa; Deji Cole. It wasn’t a secret, she made her husband. Her father bequeathed Oil Wells to her as his only child.

Fear had hit Lara when she saw her husband’s Female staff throwing up. She had hugged her earlier that day and gave her a peck on the cheek.

“ God, I hope I don’t have this Virus!”….


“ Why the sudden call?” Naito said “ I was in the middle of having a good time with my husband “

“ Exactly… Ruby… Why the unscheduled call….” said another witch…

“ An idea dropped and I didn’t want to be selfish with my idea… I could use it for my country alone, but I thought otherwise.” Ruby said

“ I hope it is worth it..” said Naito; the head of all Witches on earth.

“ Islingbee Virus has been killing a lot of people in my country. This is the best time to feast on enough flesh and blood. We can hide under the guise of the Virus. The moment people get symptoms similar to the Islingbee Virus symptoms, they tend to be half dead already. Fear gets them defeated even before they are tested. I see this as a good opportunity to attack people by projecting illnesses into them. We kill them speedily and it will be assumed Islingbee Virus is the culprit…

“ Hmmm…. Sounds good!”

“ Very good, because the preys won’t pray against us, they just assume whatever they are going through is just the Virus.”

“ Let’s execute this plan and see how it works…”Naito said as she was in a hurry to return back to her body. She had passed out on her husband while they were making love….

“Naito! Naito! Wake up!” Angie said tapping Naito…

Naito woke up all of a sudden

“ What! Angie! What happened to me?” Naito said confused. She had no idea what had happened to her…

“ You passed out!” Angie said

“ Ok… another sleeping episode!” Naito said lightly…

“ Naito, What is happening, in Just three months of our marriage you have had 14 “sleeping episodes” as you call it.”

“ I don’t know, but that is what my doctor called it. I was told it’s a brain disorder, the brain shuts down for few minutes. I am fine… “ Naito said

“ You have told me this before, but I feel there is more to this.”

“ So where were we?” Naito said trying to take the situation very lightly…

“ You expect us to continue love making after one of your sleeping episodes… No! Forget it…” Angie walked out

Naito hoped she wasn’t going to lose Angie like she had lost other men… Her sleeping episode was getting worse by the day.

She didn’t understand why as she was a senior blind W!tch….
