"Mansa" season 1 episode 9


She instantly felt different. She then suspected that she was pregnant.
This even worsened her situation. Her being pregnant will bring about issues she is not ready for.
“I can’t be pregnant, God come to my aid” she softly said and went back to her bed.
She was so much worried about her condition that she completely forgot about the dream she had.
The following morning Mansa was up early and had already began her house chores.
Kuu was getting ready to go out when he saw Mansa at the kitchen. Apparently, they have not been able to speak for long due to the busy schedule of Kuu.
Somewhere deep inside Kuu, he was a bit jealous of how Mansa and Chris had suddenly become very close.
He was missing her company even though they lived under the same roof.
He went to kitchen to say hi to her before leaving.
“Hey Mansa, where have you been hiding yourself?” Kuu asked.
“I should be asking you that. You are the busy one, remember?” Mansa said.
“Yeah sis, i will admit that. Anyway, how about me taking you out tonight? Kuu asked.
“Really? I will love that but you know Mum may not agree. She said.
“Don’t worry, leave that to me, just get yourself ready by the time i come home tonight”, he said and left her at the kitchen.
Chris was all along eavesdropping when Kuu was talking to Mansa. He quickly ran back to his room when Kuu was getting out of the kitchen.
Fortunately for him, Kuu never saw him. An unusual thing happened that morning soon after Kuu had left for the meeting.
Chris was in his room when all of a sudden he heard shouts coming from the hallway.
The person was screaming as if he/she was being possessed.
Chris got to see who it was, it was his mother.
Mansa had also heard Mrs. Amposah screaming and was already at the hallway trying to find out what was really going on.
Mrs. Amposah refused to talk to anyone, she was sweating and panting as if she has been running a marathon.
She quickly went to the living room and sat there, completely ignoring everyone.
Mansa and Chris were in shock of the attitude of Mrs. Amposah, however there was nothing they could do than to wait for her to calm down.
Chris then rushed to his mother’s room to check if there was anyone there, but to his surprise the room was looking normal as always.
Before he knew, Mrs Amposah had gone back to her room. She took a quick shower and without saying a word to anyone, she hurriedly left home.
This kept Chris and Mansa really worried. What was really going on?
On the other hand, Chris was excited that he was once again left alone with Mansa.
This means he will probably take a step further. He came up with a plan.
Mansa was the type of lady who respected people’s privacy. With this, she never had the guts to either enter into Kuu or Chris’s room.
Chris however wanted to have a way of luring her into his room that very morning. The pregnancy of his girlfriend Asabea never bothered him.
He never called her after the confrontation. All his focus was to get Mansa into his bed.
Mansa on the other hand, went out to get a pregnancy test kit. She wanted to be sure if she was pregnant or not.
This gave room for Chris to figure out what to do to let Mansa into his room.
He suddenly covered himself up with a cloth and laid on the living room sofa. He was faking sickness.
Mansa in no time came to find him lying on the sofa. As caring as she was, she quickly rushed to him to check on him.
“what’s wrong with you Chris?” She asked.
“i don’t really know, i have pains all over and a serious headache. I’m feeling cold and weak too and the worst of it is that i can feel my heart beat faster than usual, Mansa i’m getting sick. ” Chris told the biggest lie of the century.
“let me get you some drugs from the first aid kit.” Mansa said.
“Yeah, before you do that, kindly help me to my room” said Chris.
Mansa helped Chris up, and slowly walked him into his room.
Chris had succeeded. What was his next plan of action?
Shortly after they went in, Mrs. Amposah came back looking more calmer now.
Wherever she went must have been very helpful in calming her down. She opened the door leading to the living room and found a black polythene bag lying carelessly on the living room carpet.
She went and took it, only to find out that, it had the pregnancy test kit in it.
Apparently, Mansa had left it behind when she was taking Chris to his room.
Mrs. Amposah wondered who it belonged to. She then went straight to Mansa’s room but she was not there.
She went to the kitchen but met her absence. She checked the whole house but Mansa was no where to be found.
Mrs. Amposah then decided to go and check on his beloved son who must be worried about her with her strange attitude earlier that morning.
She went closer to Chris door, and pushed the door opened.
