The Ghost Man – Season 1 – Episode 3

By Tiana Cole Williams.

(A true life story)



“Honey, you will be fine,” she

assured, “I’m here for you.”

Such a loving wife.

I began to shiver and I began to

foam from the mouth, then I



Chioma left the mirror and

walked towards the bed. She

stood over my dead body, with

triumph on her face.

“Idiot,” she cursed, “anu ofia. I

thought you’re a superman.” She

spat on me.

I remained motionless but

watching her every move. She

took her mobile phone and

dialed a number.

“Hello Chike,” she said.

Chike? Which Chike? Chike my

best man and best friend?

“Hello sweetheart,” that was

Chike’s voice. My best friend.

“My love, I have a good news.”

“Really? I can’t want to hear.”

“The idiot is dead.”


“Kacy naa, don’t you remember

our discussion again?”

“Oh yes, I do I do. Great. Start

crying, I’m on my way.”

My best man and best friend too

was in the conspiracy to kill me.

What a wicked world.

Chioma stored the documents in

one of her bags, went to the

mirror to look at her beautiful

face one more time. Beautiful

demon. She rearranged her hair

and made for the door. Opening

the door she turned back to look

at me.

“Rest in peace,” she said and left.

I quietly got up from the bed,

went to her bag and collected

the file containing all my

documents. On top of the

wardrobe, the portable Nikon

video recorder I had planted

there earlier was still rolling, I

collected it and turned it off.

Quietly like the ghost I was, I

opened the window, scaled

through and vanished from the

compound. Chioma’s voice could

be heard crying loudly. I’m now

going to be a ghost, to torment

those that killed me. The battle

line is drawn.
