"Mansa" season 1 episode 12


His words was so comforting and assuring. Those words were enough to make Mansa involuntary smile, as if everything was alright.
” Do i know somewhere, i don’t know but there is something about you that makes you look familiar” Mansa asked.
“I don’t think so dear, come, lets sit down and talk” Obed said.
They went and sat at the nearest pew they could find.
“Mansa why should you worry so much when actually you should leave everything in Gods hand” Obed asked.
“Look, i know your foster mother very well, its unfortunate she does not know me like i do, sometimes she can be exaggerating a little but you need to pray very hard for God to take control, i used to be working for your dad, as a matter of fact am his lawyer. You are the only one am telling this because he never even trusted his own wife.” He continued.
“Really, mm i miss him so much, But Obed you won’t understand what am really going through.” Mansa said.
She made it obvious that she was hiding something. Obed noticed it instantly.
“I think you are hiding something from me, what is it? You can trust me” Obed assured her.
“Obed, can i trust you? Mansa asked
“Mansa, why ask this question, I already saw it in your eyes before you asked that you already trust, you can trust me, my dear” Obed said.
He was right. As soon as Mansa saw him, she felt comfortable and safe around him. He had already won her trust with his words of encouragement.
“So you have the gifts of reading minds now? Mansa ironically asked.
“That’s for you to tell me.”Obed answered.
Mansa was feeling very at ease with him, so she began opening up with him.
“Obed, am pregnant, i found out this morning. I didn’t know what to tell mum, thats why i ran here” Mansa said.
“I see, have you already gotten the father involved” He asked.
“That’s the problem, i don’t the father” Mansa said.
Obed’s facial expression changed as Mansa gave that answer, however he never jumped into conclusion until heard everything Mansa had to say.
“How, I don’t understand? Obed asked looking very confused.
“Obed, i was raped” Mansa revealed.
Obed was the very first person that Mansa had told this to.
“What, by who? Obed asked.
“That’s what i don’t know, he was wearing a mask, He took my pride away, i don’t know him or where he came from and up till now, am being tormented by this everyday” Mansa said and began sobbing.
Obed saw in her eyes that she was being truthful, he believed her right away.
Meanwhile, back at the family of Amposah’s house, Kuu had returned and met Chris and his Mother at living room.
He knew it was a normal thing for them, he then greeted them and without asking any questions, went straight into Mansa’s room, only to met her absence.
He looked around the house to see if he could find her but she was no where to be found.
He had a little present for her. Lately Kuu and his mother were not really getting along with Mansa being the bone of contention.
He then had no option than to come back to the living room asking of them (Chris and Mrs Amposah) of her where about.
“Chris, where is Mansa? Kuu asked Chris.
Chris was in total silence as he didn’t know the answer to give him. It took Mrs Amposah to interrupt them with an answer.
“My son, no body knows where your so called sister had gone to, do you know that, that Mansa you keep standing up for, is pregnant” Mrs Amposah said.
“oh no, but how? Kuu looked surprised.
“How did this happen?” He continued.
Kuu looked more concerned about this, done anyone else. The news of the pregnancy shocked him.
He went straight to his room and locked himself up.
In about 20 minutes, Kuu came out of his room with a luggage.
It looked as if he was going somewhere. When Mrs Amposah saw him, she wondered where he was going.
“And where are you going to with those luggage? Mrs. Amposah asked.
” Sorry, i forgot to tell you, i am traveling to the central region, will be back in a week time” Kuu said.
“Just like that, what business do you have doing at central region ” She asked
“Mum, don’t you think, am old enough to go about with my own business. I will call you. I must be on my way” Kuu said and walked out on her.
Mrs Amposah called him several times but he ignored him and went away.
“What has come over this boy?” Mrs Amposah asked herself.
She then decided to go back to her room when all of a sudden the door leading to the living room opened.
It was Mansa accompanied by Obed.
“So you have returned” Mrs Amposah asked.
“And young man, i guess you are here to plead on her behalf” She continued.
Obed smiled at her and said.
“On the contrary, that’s not what am here for” Obed said.
“I suppose, you are looking for the father of the pregnancy? Well, you are looking at him” Obed said.
Obed and Mansa were up to something.
Whatever it was, Mrs. Amposah was definitely not happy about it.
