(making the prince)
The night beamed out its darkness filling the air with simultaneous sound of thunder and smidgen of lighting as ‎adigun and queen tinuade walk tirelessly in the middle of the forest .

before they could get to alaran the demon hunter  , the queen was already in labour, she fell along the road side crying and bleeding, but adigun who is not but  just a servant does not know what to do, he stood at the middle of the forest and cried at the highest pitch of his voice seeking for help but there is no one to hear him cry, he was left on the river of confusion so he decided to run back maybe luck could smile on him and he will be able to get a divine  helper .
Immediately he left , the same  old woman who gave the prophecy about what will happened to her  came out of the forest,without wasting much time she helped the queen  deliver a baby boy with a golden wrist band on his left hand..

she took him in her hands, she turned facing the queen
Old lady : " heaven has blessed you with a great boy, he shall save his father's land from the hands of the evil one's.." * she threw a wide grin *. his name shall be called ajadi, keep this golden wrist band out of his reach until he is ready.. !!
Queen : but when will I know if he is ready? (she said in a faint voice laying helplessly on d floor)
Old lady : don't worry, when the time comes you will know.. I have to go now..

She  gave her the boy and she walked out of the scene till she was totally out of sight.. , adigun return few minutes later accompanied by two average aged ladies, but they saw the queen with a baby, they stood there in a surprised mood, but there is no point is asking "how come" since its rampant for ladies giving birth without the help of no one but the creator.. they quickly help her up and they keep walking till they locate alaran the demon hunter, adigun quickly present the message to alaran and he joined him to help the queen and the baby in..

The next morning, the news of ayetoro and the king got to alaran and he walked up to the queen and he informed her about what later happen to the king.. alaran : "loki has put you on his wanted list, pledging to reward anyone who find you with 2000 pieces of silver , very soon he might find out your whereabout,  so from now onward you have to pretend as if you are  my wife , your name from now onward  you have to start living like a commoner,  you must not reveal who you truly are to anyone " he said and look for a place to sit

Tinuade wept really bad to the extent that adigun noticed and he rushed in..
Adigun : "my queen why are you crying " he asked furiously as if he is ready to attack anyone behind the reason for her tears ..
alaran  went ahead to explain everything to him but he was impotent to do nothing ..

Few days After loki and his men had successfully conquered the village, the king makers made him the king, and he appoints Ogidan as the king's hand ,he ordered his soldiers to behead all the chiefs who were not in support of his ruling , he kill and enslave anyone who tried to oppose his command and also banish the chiefs who had escaped  the village that very night  .

This made the people fear him a lot, he made a law that everyone  must present 70% of their havested food to the palace every month, and also made it known that anyone who refused to comply to the law shall be jailed.. this eventually made him rich, powerful and famous ,  he took total control of the village and sold most of adejare's trusted savants into slavery, he locked adejare in the palace prison.. but his mind was still not at peace because adejare's wife left with a pregnancy and he knows that one day, the baby will come seeking  for revenge..

      (15 year later)

ajadi began to grow strong in power and wisdom, no one knows anything about him cus they (his mother and adigun ) never mention or reveal their real identity to anyone . Ajadi looked the part of a vagrant … he has the bold looking face and strong agile spirit like that of his father ..
Right from his childhood days, he had been doing things most old and stronger one's are incapable of trying..

One day, alaran was set to go for hunting he called out his daughter
Toke! Toke!! Get me my hunting tools, it’s time for hunt..he echoed a high tune message to toke..few minutes later toke came out with the tools, when ajadi saw this he quickly stood and went outdoor, ..

Ajadi : good evening father..
Alaran : ajadi jadi! (he hailed), how are you?
Ajadi : am fine sir
Alaran : thats good, my you can see, am ready for the moonlight hunt, one must be vigilant and strong in handling his job, else hunger will strike that person..
Ajadi  : but can I followed you down to the forest?  ..

Alaran : *laughed * sorry it's not a journey for kids like you, you are barely 15 and you want to go for hunting, don't worry I will get you something good after the hunt.. (he pat ajadi on his shoulder) 
Ajadi  : *laughed* daddy I want to follow you, I know am still a boy but one day I will become a man I won't start learning how to hunt when I become old.. It starts from now..

Alaran : are you sure you are bold enough to go out there?
Ajadi : am sure sir...
Alaran  : ok go in and get yourself prepared..
(moonlight hunt)
Alaran watched ajadi as he danced his way in to  prepared for the hunt, during the process his mother enters..
Tinuade : "And where do you think you are going"
Ajadi : "Am going for hunting"..
Tinuade : 'are you out of your mind, don't you know how dangerous it is out there?" she threw a furious look at ajadi ..

Ajadi : "Mum I understand, but am no longer a kid, I have to learn how to be a man " he replied and head straight towards the door.
Tinuade : "Please be careful out there" she said with a low tune ..
" don't worry we won't stay too long ". He said and made his way out of the entrance..

When he got outside, he joined alaran as he received the hunting bag from him.. –adigun raced through the black wood, beneath a pale cliff as tall as the sky. The moon ran with him, slipping through a tangle of bare branches overhead, across the starry sky as Alaran went ahead to tell him about the funny tricks some animal play when they are being attacked, they laughed along as they discussed, Alaran also told him whenever he tried to shoot at any animal and he could feel a shock on his hand, he should stop immediately and call on him..

On getting to the first trap it was empty so Alaran asked him to stay by and watch for him as he walked along to check his second trap.. he gave him a gun..
"Be careful "he said as he walked away..
After Alaran had left the scene, ajadi start parading the environmental searching around for any form of animal to slay, "at least I should be able to get something good for my first hunt " he said . After roaming for some few hours,he could feel the touch  of the cold hands of the wind within his body, he knew the cold weather won't be nice to him. Eventually he got tired of searching He decided to so he decided  return to his previous position.

On his way back, he could hear footsteps  approaching where he was. The slow, measured sound of those footsteps went before him, echoing amongst the green  trees of the forest . As He turned to have an eyeful of who it was,  he saw a little girl, Her eyes were soft like the airs , her silver-gold hair all tousled. her red lips shown life a red rose within white snow, her body was white and shinning like stars and diamond in the sky..

Ajadi quickly hide himself within the forest as she pushed her hair back and sing to the moon,he voice was as cool and sweet like an apple within the snow, and a hundred small grey birds broke off their nest  to sing with her. The forest was filled with lovely voice as ajadi stood there enjoying the whole scene, as this was going on, something fell from Ajadi's bag, immediately the whole scene became silent and cool. Before he could understand what was going on the lady had disappeared.. he stood ther for some minutes and he made his way down to his previous spot .

He waited   for some minutes but alaran was still not  back, so he opt to  check out on him, he  trailed  him till he found where alaran dropped his hunting bag, he started looking around till he finally saw him rumbling with a big antelope.. ajadi quickly joined him in the battle, he  pull the bow and aim for the antelope, during the process the antelope turned and face him running   after ajadi at his highest speed but ajade never make a move,as he stay calm and aim for the antelope..

The antelope jumped trying  to knock ajadi down but ajadi  pull the bow and shoot the antelope around the neck region, during the process the antelope fell and crash itself on ajadi . Alaran quickly rushed down to help the antelope off ajadi.
Alaran : are you okay? *he asked on a horse tone breathing heavily like someone who just fought and kill a lion*
Ajadi : am fine. *panting heavily *
Alaran : you are such a strong boy. .

 he carried  the dead antelope on his back and they both walk down home . You are such a lucky boy, it's rare for one to kill something of such on their first hunt night, do you know I actually killed nothing during my first hunt? Alaran quarried " but ajadi
never utter a word he just kept walking instead.
alaran thoughts maybe it was all about what happened back in the hunting field, he path him on his back and began to tell him some set of stories as
They discussed alot and about many things on their way home...

they got to a certain junction and they notice some set of soldiers coming out of their house, they quickly hide themselves under a big tree located at the eastern region of their house. The soldiers arrested tinuade, but adigun was there watching as they are taking her away .

(meeting the unknown)
The echo of their footsteps mixed with the dust of the night filled the whole environment as
Ajadi quickly jumped up and  tried to attack them, but eventually he was stopped by  alaran..

Ajadi : why are you stopping me? they are taking my mother  away . *he screamed *
Alaran : calm down !
Ajadi : why should I? They are taking her away and you ask me to calm down.?
Alaran :  You can't attack them for now, they are much more than us and  they are stronger than us. Wait let them take her away and we will look for a way to get her out. * he whispered *

Ajadi pulled himself from him and ran towards the soldiers,when  one of them noticed that ajadi was coming after them, he ‎ stop moving and ‎he hit ajadi on his forehead with a stick ,ajadi fell smashing himself to the sandy ground lying unconsciously on the floor, before he could understand what was going on, one of them dropped from his horse, he looked straight at ajadi as he was rolling in pain on the floor..

He pulled his sword and tried to strike ajadi with it, but adigun quickly intervene..
Adigun : I wouldn't do that if I were you.. *he screamed!!*
Soldier : what do you mean? *he asked in total confusion *
Adigun : killing a kid is way too degrading for  great warrior like you..
Soldier : so what do you suggest?
Adigun : let him not disrupt our journey, just let him go..

Soldier : hmmmm! OK... (he pushed ajadi and they gallop away)
After the soldiers had left Alaran quickly rush to the scene, he helped ajadi in and quickly clear his cut with a cotton.

Alaran : how are you feeling? *he asked while wiped  ajadi's bloody nose*
Ajadi : am fine.. but i still can't believe uncle could betrayed us .he let those people took my mum away and you also did nothing,I thought she is your wife and you truly love her..*crying *
Alaran :  Calm down young man, what an elderly man  sees while sitting, a boy of your age can't  see it even if he climb the highest tree. I know what am doing, just be patient for a while all will be okay.. (he stood up and walk out of the room)..

After  Alaran left, ajadi stood up and walk out of his room,  he head straight to his mother's room, when he got inside , he sat on his mum's bed, freeing himself  on it like a falling tree falling from the highest corner of the earth.
"why did uncle dose  soldiers took my mum and where are they taking  her to?, what's really going on?" he soliloquies.. but he couldn't find a suitable answer for that as He thought for a while.

 Some minutes later, he stood up and try to exit his mother's room, he noticed he stepped on something strong, he bend to check what was there, it was actually a golden wristband . he picked it and take a good look at it , mistakenly he inserted it on his wrist. He tried to pull it but he couldn't, he forcefully tried all his efforts to pull it but all  was to no avail , after spending minutes on trying, he finally let go of if and walked down back to his room..

He jumped on the bed and doze off!. It was  close to midnight when ajadi had slept , he heard something walking in his  room, but he thought it was just his imagination. He stood up look around but he  saw nothing, he went back to relax on the bed. He still feel the pain from the injury on his forehead. He relaxed his back to the wall meditating on how he could save his mum from the hands of those that took her..

Then he saw  someone  heading towards where he was ,he started shaking, his heart pounding linke a samba drum, the sound of the night will's-o-the whips sends a flash shock through his veins … his room started feeling hot and bonded by a web of horror ..
