The Sacred Bride
Bunmi B. Gabriel.
In the old days, men abided by laws, evil and good laws. Some practiced the art of witchcraft and sorcery and many had gods whom they served and dedicated their lives to. The gods were real, gave them whatever they wanted and had them paid the price for what they gave to man; give and take. Fortunately, as time flew by and men grew wiser, more civilized and filled with ideas, many abandoned their holy culture and serve no one but themselves. However, they are still few that stick to their religion, serve the gods or God they which to serve, many who still use those powers as means of entertainment; magicians, seers, psychics, voodoo etc. In ways you will never believe the source.
Amongst those who still held to their fetish belief despite the growing civilization are The Wellingtons, a large family who secretly keep to their belief as strong as the very day it began. What is their belief? Hmm, let’s see.

In exchange for the sacrifice, power, authority, fame and wealth never leaves the doorsteps of each family member, and if there’s one thing the Wellingtons love, it’s money and power.
