It’s that time again to get the creative juices flowing, courtesy of Madison Wood’s prompt. This week’s photo is courtesy of Lura Helms, thanks Lura, and many thanks to Madison for always setting this up.
This week, I came up with a story, pure work of fiction. As always feel free to participate, comments, honest and kind critiques are welcome. THANK YOU!
Chidinma kept running…they were following her no doubt.
Ever since the village priestess had told her husband she was carrying twins, plans were been made to banish her “evil” seeds once they were born.
In Umuofia, twins were an abomination…
Chidinma kept running…if she could find that old tree mama had taken her when she was five…the tree where her Chi dwelt, they would save her.
Still running fast she stumbled to the ground…tears blinding her as she looked up…right in front of her was the tree.
Chidinma remembered what mama did here several years ago…she got into character, and started to evoke her Chi in Igbo “Onye kwe chi ya ekwe…”
Five minutes later, over Umuofia thunder blazed like fire across the skies…
Igbo language is spoken by the Igbo people an ethnic group in the southeastern Nigeria
Chidinma is a unisex name meaning God is great.
Chi is a person’s spiritual guide or god
“Onye kwe chi ya ekwe…” means “whoever believeth, achieveth”
