“Sangilayi is the purest of all Waters in Kpaki.” Yakwobo told her daughter Kashi, “It cures all ailments.”
“Nna I want to drink from SangiLayi.” Kashi said excitedly.
Yakwobo smiled at her daughter’s state of euphoria.
“You will drink from Sangilayi, but it is not easy, one has to travel through Chiji, Kodan, Gbete, Kudu and pass the Kuka tree which is inhabited by evil spirits to reach there.”
All this Yakwobo told Kashi while pounding chingini (pounded yam).
Kashi was maverling over what her mother said when she heard her scream and dashed there and met her mother jerking on the floor and ran to get an elder.
“Yanmanda please come and help my mother.”
Yanmanda knew Kashi to be a good girl and followed her.
Later Shaaynko the healer nodded sadly, If Evbwa bites a person only a miracle can save them.
Kashi thought of only one source of miracle Sangilayi and left . By evening she was in Chiji, she was tired but forged ahead to Kodan where she passed the the night.
Before first light she proceeced to Gbete, by noon she was kudu, she was hungry and ate from a fruit tree, after resting, she followed her heart and found the acclaimed Kuka tree, she prayed and proceeded.
She perceived aroma of food, saw beautiful things and people calling out to her but ignored them all and ran.
She saw Sangilayi sparkling,fetched, and left. Her journey back was less tedious and she got home just in time before her mother took her last breath and poured it in her mouth and her eyes fluttered open.
“You saved me.”
“Yes, I got you Sangilayi.”
“Did you drink from it?”
“The one who gives another grace will own a santuary.”
“Someday you will drink from Sangi Layi.”
