The Family Curse - Season 1 - Episode 4
Read The Story
Chike’s ambition to challenge the curse.

Mbadike had four market days, Eke, Oye, Afo and Nkwo. Amadi sold his palm-wine on each of these market days. However, since Chike was denied the opportunity of going to school, he became increasingly unhappy to help his father in selling the palm-wine. But since he was the only child up to the age of carrying the wine to the market with his father, he did it reluctantly. The more he saw Ike and other children going to school early in the morning, the more he became reluctant.

The family secret which his father had told him did not make him cease to want to go to school. So he kept on demanding to go to school. This was especially because of the school stories he was always hearing from his mates, more especially from Ike.

Chike , therefore, was always ashamed whenever he carried a small gourd of wine to the market, while his mates were at school. He did not know what to do. On one of the market days, however, as Chike was selling palm-wine he overheard two young men discussing an interesting topic. One looked sick, while the other looked healthy.

The healthy man was telling the sick one that he should have faith in God, and that he would be healed. He maintained that anything with a beginning would surely end one day.

Chike thought deeply as he listened to the men. This God mentioned, he thought, could it be one of the gods of Ajana? Could the gods of Ajana be so kind as to heal the sick? But he also thought that as his family’s poverty had a beginning, it might also end one day.
