DEJA VU CONTINUATION
Before Sophie could reply, the door opened and an angry Gbemi was in the doorway.
“Why did you lock us inside?” Gbemi asked looking at the two shaky girls.
“We didn’t lock you in, you did.” Sophie replied in the same tone. Solape just looked at the two them in silence
“Why would I want to lock you in?” Gbemi asked again and they kept quiet.
“Something is going on. I know something weird is going on here.” Solape said, folding her hands.
“What is she talking about?” Gbemi asked with a hand gesture.
“Let’s go in first, before this door shuts again.” Sophie said and she and Solape quickly brushed past Gbemi. Gbemi shut the door and faced them in confusion.
“What is going on with you guys?” Gbemi asked again.
“I woke up and heard a knock, a really loud knock which by the way, I’m surprised didn’t wake you guys. I opened the door and didn’t see anybody. I came back to sleep and heard the knock again. I woke Sophie and we went to open it together again. We didn’t see anyone, we were still outside when the door shut itself.” Sophie blabbed in a rush.
“I just assumed you shut it.” Sophie said calmly facing Gbemi.
“Well, I assumed you shut it because the loud bang woke me.” Gbemi replied.
“Well, it wasn’t us.” Sophie replied.
“Then it’s probably the wind. Please don’t be unnecessarily dramatic about this nonsense. I need to wash my face.”Gbemi said and strolled into the bathroom. As she was about to turn on the faucet, it turned on and off itself, gushing out a brown substance. She screamed and ran back to the room, sitting quietly on the bed.
“What happened?” Sophie asked.
“Something weird is happening in the bathroom. That tap, it came on itself and off… and it was bringing out dirty water.. and….” she kept quiet, obviously shaken. Solape and Sophie moved closer to her and placated her.
“We can’t stay here. We can’t remain here, when we’re not finally mad or white.!” Solape yelled.
“How is Bimpe still sleeping?” Sophie asked with her gaze fixed on Bimpe’s still body. The girls were shaking and wondered where the next ruckus was going to come from. Gbemi shook Bimpe but she remained still. The girls exchanged looks and asif according to cue, they heard the sounds of plates and cups shattering on the floor. Solape jumped up at the sound and sat back again.
“I’m not going.” Solape said quietly.
“We can’t just stay here.” Gbemi replied.
“Watch me.” Solape insisted and then screamed and jumped up immediately. “It’s hot! The bed is hot!” she yelled. Sophie touched the bed and withdrew immediately.
“Everywhere is hot.” Sophie said. Without warning, all 3 of them ran out of the room and went downstairs. Gbemi stopped short with a terrified look.
“What?” Sophie asked breathing heavily.
“Someone’s been in here.”Gbemi replied.
“How can you even tell?” Solape asked and Gbemi moved out of the way for them to see the moving chair. The chair kept on swinging on its own like someone was on it.
“Why is that chair moving itself?” Solape asked loudly in fear and shock.
“Look at the plates, the cups… everywhere is a mess.” Sophie said and the light went off immediately. Screaming, the girls ran back up immediately and the door locked itself.
“Where’s Bimpe?” Gbemi asked.
