“I’m coming over right away”, Mansa said and hanged up.
“What happened to Elvis?” Kuu asked.
“He has been involved in an accident and currently admitted at the hospital. Kuu i really have to go and see him” Mansa said.
“Mum won’t allow you to go and see him but i will help you out. Use the back door and meet me at the grass yard, then we can go” Kuu suggested.
“Thank you so much Kuu, i appreciate it”, Mansa said.
Kuu immediately left Mansa’s room and informed Chris his elder brother whom he trusted so much.
“Chris, Mum shouldn’t know about this please, I’m seeing Mansa off to see a hospitalised friend of hers, we will be back soon. Just cover up for me”, Kuu said.
“Sure, i will” Chris answered and assured him.
A very big mistake from Kuu, his brother can’t be trusted when it comes to such issues.
As soon as Mansa and Kuu left, Chris ran towards his mum’s room and knocked at her door. She was fast asleep by then. She woke up, and opened the door for Chris to enter.
Meanwhile, Kuu and Mansa in no time had arrived at the hospital but however they were not allowed to see Elvis. His condition seemed very critical. He lied in between life and death and if care was not taken, he may loose his life.
Mansa cried when she got to know about the state of Elvis. Kuu on the other hand comforted her. It was during that time that Sister Riri ran into them at the hospital.
She was in the same church with the Amposah family and Mansa herself. She doubles up as the head of the Ushers in the church. Apparently, she also came to visit her sister who had just delivered.
“Mansa, what are you doing here? Is everything alright” Riri asked when she saw her.
“My sister, a friend of mine has been admitted here and he is in a serious condition, we are not even allowed to see him.” Mansa answered.
“Oh my dear, believe in God, with him all things are possible, this is the time you should be praying instead of crying” Riri advised. “You’re right my sister” Mansa said.
“Anyway, i believe God is in control now. I have to be on my way because it’s getting late. I will call you tomorrow morning God willing” Riri said and left.
As soon as she left, she picked up her phone and called Mrs. Amposah for a reason best known to her.
By then, she and Chris were waiting for Kuu and Mansa to return. “Hello, who is this?” Mrs Amposah said when she answered the phone.
“Hello, Good evening, this is Sister Riri the Usher”, she answered. “Oh, nice to hear from you. I hope everything is alright?” Mrs. Amposah asked.
“Yes madam, I was wondering if you are around, i just saw Kuu and Mansa here”
“Around where? I’m home. where did you see them? She asked. “At the general hospital, i thought you were around so i could see you before leaving” Riri said.
“Oh no my dear, you can come around tomorrow, which hospital did you say you saw them?” Mrs. Amposah asked.
“General hospital madam” Riri confirmed.
“Thank you very much” Mrs. Amposah said and hanged up.
“My son, God works in mysterious ways, i was just told about the hospital they went to. I’m going there right away”, Mrs Amposah said to Chris.
“Mum, why not go and see Elvis himself tomorrow morning. That will be a perfect time for you to confront him” Chris said. “I guess you are right, besides i need to get some sleep”. She said and went into her room to sleep.
Meanwhile Kuu and Mansa were already on their way home. They had no option than to come and go back the following morning since they were not allowed to see Elvis. They got home to meet everyone asleep.
“Kuu, thank you very much for all what you did for me today” Mansa said.
“Don’t worry my sis, all we need to do is to keep praying and hopefully we will hear a good news tomorrow. ” Kuu said.
They hugged each other and went to their separate rooms.
Mansa couldn’t sleep that night, she prayed all night and fell asleep around 3:00am.
Mrs. Amposah and Chris woke up early that morning ahead of Mansa and Kuu and immediately they went the hospital to see Elvis.
Upon their arrival, they were told Elvis was responding to treatment so they had the opportunity to see him.
Mrs.Amposah went into the ward alone leaving Chris behind at the OPD.
Indeed Elvis was really lucky. His head, arms and legs were all covered with bandage. He could hardly move. However, Mrs. Amposah over looked all these. She was just concerned about her mission.
“Young Man, how are you? She asked.
By the Grace of God, I’m feeling better” Elvis answered. “You better be, i believe you know who i am? She asked.
“Yes Madam” Elvis answered.
“Good, Now let me be quick. I want you to stay away from Mansa. I don’t want to see you anywhere near her.” She said.
“Madam” Elvis said in pains.
“I’m not in the mood of any negotiations, so don’t call me. You will have yourself to blame if anything happens” She said and quickly left the ward.
Elvis didn’t understand what was going on. He was surprised to hear this from Mrs. Amposah.
Within some few minutes, Elvis was just motionless. This got the attention of the nurses. Since it was beyond their control,they called a Doctor to come to their aid.
It wasn’t looking good, Elvis was dying.
That very moment, Kuu and Mansa arrived and they were asked to wait. After about 45 minutes, the Doctor finally came out.
Mansa quickly rushed towards the doctor.
“Doc, please how is he? She desperately asked.
“I’m sorry, we did all we could”, the Doc said.
“What do you mean, Doc? Mansa asked.
“I’m afraid, we just lost him” the Doc declared.
“What!!!!!!!!! Mansa shouted.
