“Its a small world Mrs Amposah, I’m watching you” Obed said and left with Mansa
Indeed Mrs Amposah was really scared having heard those words from Obed.
He was his new worry and was determined to find out who Obed really was.
Obed took Mansa to his place. It was quite a huge Mansion and to Mansa’s surprise, no one lived with Obed in that house, not even a house help.
Mansa from the initial stage felt safe but was she alone with a man in a house? That was one thing that made her felt worried.
Obed was a gentleman, he fed her breakfast in her room, took care of her, bought anything that she wanted before she even asked.
Mansa was just living a good life.
She also didn’t keep anything from him, she was completely transparent to him. She told him all that she encountered with Chris and even his accusations about Kuu being the rapist.
Obed then advised her not to make any conclusions but he will help her find who really the culprit was.
One thing Mansa found strange about Obed was that, he never had cell phone on him nor email address or anything that you could use to contact him.
He never had friends who came over to visit him. Ever since Mansa moved in with him, no one has ever come by the house.
The most awkward thing was, Mansa never knew the room in which Obed slept. Even though it was a mansion, it was only a 6 bedroom house.
Apart from Mansa’s room, all the other rooms were locked all the time.
She tried several times that she will wait till Obed fell asleep before she does. With that, she will be able to monitor him and eventually get to know where he sleeps.
But it was to no avail, she was always the first to sleep before Obed.
Usually they will wake up and have morning devotion or prayers together at the living room but something happened on one of the occasion.
After one morning devotion, Mansa somehow found herself on Obed’s lap as they watched television together.
Mansa was getting used to Obed. She starred at him, and strangely she wanted to kiss him. It looked as if Mansa was gradually falling in love with Obed.
He has shown so much kindness to her and for the first time she was feeling something real.
Something she had never felt before. She took her head off his lap and took his hand, looking straight into his eyes.
“Obed, why are you doing this, i don’t know why you are helping me so much” Mansa asked him
“Mansa, I believe that sometimes in life every body needs a helper. I just followed my instincts. Who knows what God is also doing for me because of what I’m doing for you. Miracles do happen you know, but we just don’t see it because we humans are too dependable on pastors, friends and whoever they can trust. I’m not the one you should be asking this question. God himself will give you an answer.” Obed said.
His words was just too pleasing to her ears. There is no person who has attained perfection but for Obed, it seems he has.
Mansa kept looking into eyes. She felt like kissing him. She just mentioned his name and drew her face closer to his.
At this time, Obed knew the intention of Mansa. They virtually feel each others breath.
However, Obed withdrew and stood up from where Mansa was sitting.
Mansa came to her senses and somehow regretted her actions.
She apologized to Obed and quickly ran into her room.
Kuu on the other was trying to get into contact with Mansa for several times but was to no avail. He decided to come back home when his mother told him about Mansa and Obed.
Kuu was furious and somehow jealous for a reason known to himself.
Without waisting anytime, Kuu quickly rushed home with the motive of questioning his mother for making Mansa move in with Obed.
He budged into the house and went straight to his mother’s room only to see her really sick in bed.
All his life, she has known her mother to be a very strong woman. It seemed this sickness was quite difficult for her to handle.
But to his mother’s surprise, he was not really bothered about her sickness.
All he wanted was to know the whereabout of Mansa.
“Mum, where is Mansa? show me where she is, i need her address” Kuu asked his mother in a very angry tone.
“Kuu, why are you so concerned about that girl, when i, your mother is seriously sick in bed” Mrs Amposah said.
“Mum, just tell me where she is, that’s all i need” Kuu asked again.
“Kuu, Mansa is with his baby’s daddy and soon they are going to get married so stop bothering about her. ” Mrs Amposah said.
“Baby’s daddy my foot! that Man is a liar, Mansa is carrying my child” Kuu revealed.
His anger made him to spit out his secret. His mother struck with a shock.
That was the moment Kuu realized that he had said too much.
