Last Supper

Last Supper

A Story by Ernest Yungsi
"

It takes an insane person to bring an entire city out of it’s madness.

"

The week before Easter, on Wednesday night,

Moses received a message which said, IT ENDS

TOMORROW NIGHT!


The words arrived in a dream with Moses

eating a piece of fish, and a small group of

schoolboys making fun of him.

On Thursday afternoon, Moses stood in

public, talking about the dream to himself in a

loud voice.


He screamed about the blood, questioning

whether it belonged to the man in the suit whom

the two policemen had thrown out of the building,

but everything became confusing in the heat of the

sun as a loud voice suddenly shouted, “Moses, I

have something for you!”


Moses glanced towards the restaurant near

the mayor’s office to see a fat man at the door

throwing something inside the garbage can. The

object hit the side of the metal bucket and fell on

the ground. The man burst out laughing as he

entered the restaurant.


Draping his grimy clothes around his body,

Moses looked down at his swollen feet, crying out

with pain, as he rose from his sitting position

under a tree.

Near the garbage can, he heard young

voices, calling his name, but Moses picked up the

half-eaten fish and began eating noisily.

“Moses is an animal!” cried a boy, one

among a small group walking home from school.

How does it feel, Moses?” shouted another

boy. “How does it feel to be the only mad person

in the city?

He feels like a real loser,” said the first

boy, laughing. “The mayor takes all insane people

away to receive treatment and, they say ‘we can’t

bring Moses, he is incurable.’”


As the other boys burst out laughing,

something suddenly hit Moses’s head, causing

him to drop the fish.

The thrower of the rock was laughing and

pointing.

“I got him on the forehead,” he cried.

“Let’s run!” suggested another boy.


As the teenagers fled, laughing and

screaming, Moses touched his head and looked at

his hand, stained with blood.

The blood from the dream was mine!” he

thought.
