THE INVINCIBLE HUNTERS
Written by Nathaniel Anuma
Jack could see Jane searching her bag through the video call. She wore a short skirt over a long elastic trouser. On her feet were also heel shoes. She had a fair complexion unlike Karina. She’s quite kind but could be very abrasive and aggressive sometimes.
She tumbled the bag upside down in search of the seed but it was nowhere to be found to the extent Jack grew impatient and said, “Jane, what do you
want to show me?”
“I can’t find it again” Jane replied moving towards the bed. Suddenly, a knock came from the door. “I’ll call you back, Jack” she hung up the call then walked towards the door. Only the sound of her shoes could be heard. Before she got to the door, it cracked opened then a wind blew inside. “Who’s there?
Lana, is that you?” Jane slowly opened the door but didn’t see anybody. She stretched her head sideways, yet no sign of a human being. “Weird” she said then closed the door. Immediately she turned, she saw the seed on the floor. “How come?” she looked around the room before picking it up. She flung it inside the bag again, clutched the doorknob of her door and hurried out. She hastily took their family car key from the centre table in the sittingroom where her parents were too.
“Where are you heading to, Jane?” the father asked.
“I wanna see Jack, Dad!” Jane’s voice sounded from outside.
“Make sure you come back early coz it’s getting late!” the mother’s voice sounded loud and clear. The next thing they heard was their car engine-Jane drove out.
At Jack’s residence, Karina was already there with him when Jane arrived.
There was an unserious relationship going on between Karina and Jack but Jennifer had always wanted a serious one with him wishing it would come to pass one day.
Karina laid her head on Jack’s naked shoulder in the sittingroom coz he had no shirt on. Only a trouser.
One could see fairy hair from his abdomen to his chest. They were actually watching a romantic movie until Jennifer knocked at the door.
“I’ll get it” Karina stood up. She opened the door then she and Jane stared at each other for a while.
“Hi, Karina” Jane smiled at her.
“Hi, Jennifer” Karina returned the smile then opened the door widely for her to entered “We weren’t expecting you” she added.
“Sorry, for that. I just wanna see Jack. Wooh!” Jane exclaimed when she saw Jack without shirt. She quickly looked away from him. Already Jack was standing looking confuse on why she had to turn her
back on him.
“What’s going on, Jane?” Jack asked.
“Please, cover yourself” Jane replied still without looking at him. Then Jack understood. He smiled broadly. Before he could reach his shirt, Karina had brought it and placed it on his shoulder in a way he wore it easily.
“You can turn now, Jennifer” she announced.
Jane turned happily. She walked towards Jack and brought out the seed.
“What a heck is that?!” Karina approached closer.
“I found it in a forest on our family vacation” Jane replied handling the seed to Jack who had been quiet gazing at it strangely. Just then, he hurried to his cell phone and dialed his friend’s number instantly as the two girls stared at him.
“Hello, Frank, i need you in my house immediately” Jack said through the phone.
“You sound strange. What’s the problem?” Frank asked.
“I think i have something u need to examine scientifically. It’s a kind of seed or something”
“Alright, on my way”
“Thanks, bro” Jack hung up the call then approached the girls again.
“Jack, what are you doing?” Jane asked.
“I have a strange feeling about this thing” Jack replied. He kept the seed on the centre table then sat down thinking critically. The two girls glanced at each other.
“Now, what?” Karina asked sitting beside Jack.
Jennifer also took a different seat. After few seconds of silence, Frank arrived with another friend of theirs called Randy.
Frank was a genius in science and technology, he was always seen with lap-top and a pair of eye glasses on his eyes. He had a white complexion unlike Randy who’s complexity was black.
Immediately they entered through the door, Jack stood up followed by Jane and Karina who looked at Frank and wondered what he was doing with a lap-top.
“Woow, what’s this?” Randy quickly picked up the seed.
“That’s why i called you guys” Jack replied.
Frank gently took the seed from him looking at it strangely as others anticipated his opinion quietly.
“I have seen a something like this before” Frank began. “It’s some kind of ancient totem”
“But it looks like a seed” Jane spoke up.
“So, where did you see something similar to it?” Jack asked.
“Online, let me show you” Frank opened his lap-top. He operated on it swiftly then an exert image of the
seed appeared. “According to what i see here, this seed had been fought for years ago by spirits and
“You mean, ghosts?” Karina asked.
“And what’s it’s function?” Jack asked then Frank looked at his lap-top again.
“It gives life. It’s some kind of medallion” he replied then all gaze at one another..
