Who knew if it was in the waters whose deep ebony was as malevolent as the green it nourished in the trees? Who knew how it had reached the birds in the air to make them drop so sudden? Mind can only ponder, eyes can only stare. Something restless frightened the goats, stalked them in the night, until one by one they disappeared.  It was something bodiless that felled them, something the hunters could not snare.

Its not unheard of to have still bodies at birth but in more than a score of piglets, could life no longer come from the earth? The drums ceased their beating when a mother began to wail, the silence deepened, the fear thickened everywhere, no anguish could undo, no mother, no human could bear, could comprehend the stillbirth baby there, what the darkness had forged afar, it now unleashed  near, here.

They say it followed you from the grave, it clung to the healer's breast,  when she had laid her care to rest, they say it took your kin, as one soul was ripped out the end of the next must begin, they say only few were saved but what was left was sick and depraved!

When it gripped you the ache grew like thunder, the skin burned with hell, the bowels were tormented by angry spirits but until the limbs went lifeless then began the hell. It had moved from the waters, it had fallen with the birds, it had grown in goats bellies, flourished in the baby piggies but now human blood it preferred! 

Horror tore our souls asunder as we watched from the sides, watched the red dripped from their eyes, dried to a slick murk near their mouth, red river trickled over black stains  from the wells of the nostrils and the walls of the gums, from the private orifices, watched and could do nothing as life and blood hemorrhaged out!

Do, do, what could we do? When all had cried and shout, when all were buried and our misery and despair remained steadfast and stout, when the malevolence finally burned itself out, we hated it in our hearts and named it so others may point out, this was the atrocity that killed with no mercy, this was without a doubt, that which is nefarious as sin and as mysterious as the black waters within, the river named of the Lingala tongue, Ebola, near Yambuku, where the evil named of black river bore down the malice of its black crown!
Dark river, Black Crown
I wanted to conjure a glimpse of the fear and mystery of this deadly disease, perhaps share a small inkling of what those people in that part of the world is facing.
 Most of this was based on an article I read by Peter Piot entitled "A virologists tale of Africas first encounter with Ebola."
I did not write it to be scientifically correct but I tried to keep to the true nature of the real virus-so dont kill me for any errors. For instance, the name of the river it was named after had nothing to do with the virus itself except ran a little close to the Yambuku mission (one of its first emergent sites) and the Scientist thought the name EBOLA was unique and ominous enough to suit its virulence.

It woke me, someone had touched my feet with their iced cold fingers. I hated that, the only thing-besides dripping water-that can awaken me from deep sleep is touching the sole of my feet. I woke with a start and then began shouting at the idiot only as slumber fell from my eyes, I felt like the idiot. There was no one there except for a gentle breeze and the blue moon peeping through the fluttering curtains.

But I had felt it, those cold fingers. Even the spell of cutis anserina still lingered and was invoked once again; this time out of fear from the sheer strangeness of it. Perhaps my sister was being a fool, so I dared a look under the bed. The moonlight crept halfway under it, after which I stared into shadow. But there, where the light ended was a contorted piece of shadow. Shouldn't it have ended evenly, light then even darkness? My goose bumps rose again and fear rooted me in the position while my mind screamed to look away. What could it be? The curtain rustled and it looked at me.

My heart fell out. Eyes! There were glowing eyes! Move! I had to move, but the only thing that did was the adrenaline borne sweat of horror down my nose. It fluttered again, Oh god, again, blue eyes in a dead blue face. I screamed at it and fell out of the bed. There were soft whimpering sounds and heavy breathing. Was it hurt? Alive? Or me? Oh god I was whimpering and panting! And being an idiot. Maybe it was a doll, yes, my sister's doll. My subconscious replied: your sister has no dolls now that she's a teenager.

Maybe she had gotten one, she was weird, and lost it under my bed, she was also careless. I  reached for the flashlight noting that I can also used it as a weapon. Lord help my insanity, I prayed, as I crouched again to take a better look-only the brainless would look again and not run-so I looked. There was nothing there...until it brushed me!

I fumbled to my feet, dropped the torchlight, staggered a little; all the while trying to get a good view of the space in front of me. It had brushed me from behind while looking under the bed. My heart was racing, the shadows, in the shadows where the closet was, oh God, near the door. I couldn't see it but I felt it. Light, I needed light!. The torchlight had rolled away when I dropped it. I couldn't get near enough to the door, If only, it looked so close and oh dear Father it was staring at me again. In the shadows, those blue eyes, mother please, unblinking, angry, dead eyes.

I screamed at it to leave me alone but the words were formed in my head and choked in my throat as tears silently began to flow. They blurred my vision and it was gone. I hurriedly wiped my eyes, gone, it was gone. Light! I fumbled for the window, the moonlight was bright. I slowly walk backed keeping a sharp eye on the shadows until it spoke: "Please"

Shock blustered coordination and I fell back and rolled over into a sitting position facing the moonlit window and leered at the blue eye shadow. It was a short shadow, a child's shadow, it came to me, my insides were trying to leave, she walked towards me, the lassitude now ran deep, reached a hand for me, I gasped at her touch.

It was the touch of death! Cold. Deathly cold fingers pressed against my cheek. "Pleeease, I'm so cold." My hands moved of their own accord. My fingers touched her little hands and she folded herself into my lap and cradled her head against my chest. My arms moved to cuddle her frigid little body while mine felt like it would freeze. My breadth came as misty heaves as I rocked her back and forth, back and forth, so cold, back and forth, so little, back and forth, so cold, until the numbness spread and the darkness took over.

Andrew! ANDREW! God!, who was shouting my name? I woke, my mother was patting my face with a look of utter alarm on hers. Andrew, what are you doing on the floor? I was... she was gone! "And you're so cold, Did you sleep like that all night?"
Mom helped me back into bed and tucked me in again. She gave me one last quizzical look the left with the promise to bring back some hot cocoa. A shadow passed over the room, I turned on my right and looked into blue eyes. "Thank you." I blinked and all was once more bathed in light that was now not of moon but morning star. When the adrenaline rush had passed and I started breathing once again I too said thank you: to God!

Hey~~

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!

Well the music was best thing I liked about it and the lyrics too but getting them to blend, creating that harmony that's the trick you need to work on. I guess that will come with time but there is great potential there, just persevere. Oh I liked the rap parts too! I subscribed as well, all the best!
