Afflicted Episode 6


Kesewaa blinks the tears out of her eyes as she looks at Akoto.
This man has loved her, has respected her, and has taken care of all her needs for almost four years.
He has never touched her in any sexual way, but has waited patiently for the day they will be married.
Oh, A. N! My love!
She is walking towards him with arms stretched, when it happens!
Up in his office, still facing the window, Reverend Obuobi moves the toffee in his mouth to his molars.
Aaaand… it happens!
He chomps down hard on the candy between his teeth, breaking it to pieces in his mouth!
In Akoto’s house Maame Akua suddenly makes a guttural noise deep down in her throat, and all eyes turn to her.
She is trembling, and the Bible drops from her hands.
She sways, and as she looks at them, sweat covers her face, and her eyes begin to roll!
Her irises roll upward, and suddenly her whole face becomes slack, her mouth opening and saliva drooling out.
Kesewaa looks on with sudden fear!
It is happening!
Just as Reverend Obuobi has warned!
This is it!
Akoto has planned blindness and paralysis for her, and the pastor has said God will reverse it and put it on Akoto’s mother!
Only the white sclera of Maame Akua’s eyes are showing.
(slurring, drooling)
I can’t… oh, Lord! Akoto, my son, I can’t see anything… I can’t feel my body!

Suddenly her fingers begin to coil into claw-like appendages!
Her legs, and her arms, and her neck twist round at awkward angles, and her jaw slacks further, emitting thick foamy saliva, and then she begins to fall!
Akoto and Amina are running towards her.
The distraught man catches his mother before she falls down, and he begins to shout in anguish!
Mother! Mother! Oh, Mother!! Kes, please, call an ambulance! Quickly, please!
Tears are flooding Kesewaa’s face as she looks down at them.
She is weeping and shaking her head.
She points an accusing finger at Akoto.
Thank you, Akoto! Thank you very much! So this is what you planned for me! If it hadn’t been for the prayers of Reverend Obuobi, I’ll be the one lying down like this!
Akoto looks at her with total incomprehension.
Goodness me! What did you say? What are you talking about, my love…what is the meaning of this?
I never realized you could be so wicked, Akoto! How could you? How could you do this to me? May God forgive you!
Kes! What’s wrong with you? Can’t you see what’s happening?
(in great emotional pain)
What? What’s the meaning of this? What’s going on?
Kesewaa runs past them.
She goes outside, jumps into her car, starts up, and speeds out of the house, leaving Akoto holding his mother, shocked and staring after her with sadness, incomprehension and mounting horror!
