At the Meeting Joint:

Unknown Person

My goodness!!! What happened to your pretty face Aggie?

Agnes Kyerewaa

Thanks for meeting me even at this short notice my guy. I will go straight to the point so I don’t waste your time. I want you and your boys to deal with someone for me. That stupid person is the one who has caused damage to my face for no just reason.

Unknown Person

You haven’t answered my question my sweet potato?

Agnes Kyerewaa

I was assaulted by some foolish guy in the house I stay, he is actually the landlord’s son.

Unknown Person

Is he mad? Did he smoke the shit of a wee smoker? Doesn’t he know the battalion you have behind you? Doesn’t he know the people you roll with? Doesn’t he know the family you come from? Doesn’t he want to live long on this earth? Even if no one is willing to fight for you, I alone will stand and fight for you to the very last drop of my blood. I will pill this guy’s skin off his body for him to know who he has messed up with. I will pluck his eyeballs from its socket and mash his balls with my bare hands.

Agnes Kyerewaa

I trust you and I know what you can do. I initially reported the case to my uncle the police commander and he immediately sent his boys to arrest him but within a little time, he was released because my uncle claims a call came from above so he had to release him or else he was going to lose his job.

Unknown Person

Then, he is really connected but all the same I don’t work under anyone so don’t worry my darling. You have a case to pursue and am going to lead the battalion for this diabolic mission. Do you want him dead or you want him to be confined in a wheelchair the rest of his miserable life?

Agnes Kyerewaa

Mmmm, I haven’t thought of that yet but hmmmm…….

Unknown Person

Is there any problem again?

Meanwhile, tension in the church had also gone up because of the way Opana was screaming in there and the service had been thrown into a moment of disarray and pandemonium. Some were in support of him whiles others thought he was overreacting and that even if what he was saying is true he could have left everything in the hands of God.

Session Clerk

So what are you going to achieve with what you are doing over here? Why don’t you take your time so we find a solution to your problem sir?

Pastor

Mr Session Clerk, don’t even go there because none of us here can go back to the office and take a cedi out of the money so Mr Ansah please understand what am telling you and God will bless you.

Opana

Today, I have come to understand what people say about Christians being wicked is very true. I mistakenly dropped the money my family is going to depend on for the days ahead and you a man of God is standing right in front of me telling me to leave it to God who is resting somewhere in heaven that I should forget it and use it as a covenant between I and God. If I may ask how much offering did you give yourself as a man of God, say it for everybody here to hear and make sure you don’t lie because you are standing in the house of God.

Pastor

I don’t need to tell anyone here the money I used as offering to God. It is a great sin to disclose the content of things you do for God and the bible says we shouldn’t allow our left hand to see the things the right-hand does.

Opana

You see your life man of God, you people wear this clerical to deceive people who want to know and serve God better. Today this is how heaven is going to suffer violence in this church auditorium.

Opana uses force to enter the office where the offering money was been counted and as he entered he went to the table the money was been counted on and immediately saw his money nicely folded together in the money, he picks the money and shows it to the people that he only came for his money and after, he dropped the 1Ghana cedi notes on the table and tells the people counting the money that here is his planned offering for the day. The pastor and the clerk who followed him into the office watched him like he just rose from the dead and when he passed by them he made a funny comment.

Opana

As you can see I have taken my own money and placed my intended offering into what they are counting. If you don’t like my money too you can tell me so I go back for that money too. You wanted my family and I to starve this evening but I say to you that the devil is a liar and a failure, all he planned didn’t work out and for your information am taking a very long leave for myself in this church.

Pastor

Am afraid to even let you add your money to the church offering, who knows what you will do next?

Opana

Oh, so my money is now bomb, erh? Hey, young lady get me my money so I leave this place. I can do something meaningful with this money later.

Opana walks out of the auditorium insulting the church leaders for being greedy and inconsiderate. On his way going home, he met a beggar on the way who pleaded with him to help him with something small so he can buy food with it.

Beggar

Please sir, am very hungry, can you please help me with something small to buy kenkey, even if no fish I will eat it just like that. I haven’t eaten any food since yesterday morning and am feeling very weak inside out. Am begging you, sir

Opana

(feeling reluctant but gives in) Hmmm, how sure am I that when I give you this money you will truly use it for the purpose you are begging for? I don’t have much on me but there is this money that the church rejected, I know it’s not enough but manage it. (hands over the 1cedi notes to the beggar)

Beggar

Thank you very much, sir, amongst the numerous people I met and pleaded with, no one gave me a pesewa but for you, you have given me more than enough. I don’t know how to thank you enough but my God will bless you abundantly and make you and your descendants great and strong.

Opana

Amen!!! I receive it in the mighty name of God. May God be with you. (walks away from the beggar)

Beggar

Mmmm, please sir, wait a little while for me to ask you something.

Opana

(whispering to himself) Hope you are not coming to demand for anything extra?

Beggar

Well, the truth is that I want to ask for a favour from you but first I want to ask if you believe in God?

Opana

Yes, I do believe in God as the one true God who has the whole world in his hands.

Beggar

That is very good, I have something for you but there are some rules and regulations guiding it. You have been good to me so I also want to reciprocate and also make you a very successful man, but I must emphasise on this, that until the day you make a move, my instruction is over, you don’t have to be angry or rude towards anyone or else you will lose everything you stand the chance of gaining to the person you were rude to.

Here, take this chain with this cross locket, when you are going to sleep in the evening put it under your pillow and when you wake up, give it to the person you want him or her to excel in life like the richest person in this country. Anything you see in your dream or when you wake up, invest all the money you have on you that day in it and please don’t forget my instructions, because if you do then you are to blame yourself.

Opana

Thank you very much, I will go by your rules and regulations. This is the best gift a stranger has ever given to me. Thank you very much.

The beggar leaves Opana’s sight and he also proceeds to his house. When he got home the first thing he did was to check if the bicycle he seized was safe at the place he locked it and when he was convinced that the bicycle was safe he went inside his room to take a nap.

His family came back to the house but no one dared to raise the issue of the unhealthy event that took place in the church auditorium that morning in the house. Akua Yankey and her children put together their efforts and before 5 pm supper was ready.

Opana was called from his sleep to come and enjoy his favourite Sunday fufu with bush meat but as he was enjoying his supper a heavy knock came through the front door of his house. When Kwaku Mike went to check who was there, you won’t believe who was standing out there with an angry face and mood…
