Michael Ansah

Please, how may I help you?

Visitor

(yelling at someone who was hiding behind him) Herh, is this the man who seized my bicycle?

Young Boy

Bros please, he is not the one, it is his father rather.

Visitor

Massa, where is your father? I want to see him now and I mean now, go inside there and get him for me before I start creating a scene in this house. You people think it is everyone that you can easily intimidate like that? This evening one of us will end up at the morgue whiles the other person ends up at the police station if I don’t get my bicycle. I’m really pissed off and the only thing that can calm me down is to get my bicycle.

Michael Ansah

Mr Man, you better take it easy with your mouth, did your brother or small boy tell you into details what happened earlier on before your bicycle was confiscated? Were you not taught manners in your house, that when you go to someone’s house you have to be submissive?

Visitor

Massa, don’t bite more than you can chew, this is not your battle so I will advise you to stay out of this and find somewhere to hide your body. This is a fight for the elephant so you rat, find somewhere safe to hide before I trample on you.

Opana

Bernice who are those making noise outside there?

Bernice Ansah

I don’t know papa but I think I overhead something like bicycle been mentioned there.

Opana

Oh really? Since I’m done with my supper let me check who is making noise on my compound this Sunday evening. (walks to the door and before he gets there he heard a familiar voice)

Visitor

For the very last time, I said go and get your father for me before I barge into your house and start breaking things in there.

Michael Ansah

Hmmmmm, it is because of the police case I just got myself out recently that is why am been gentle with you if not like by now your mouth should have been covered with your blood for this nonsense you are spewing out from your mouth.

Opana

(from behind) Kwaku Mike, what is going on out there with this exchange of words?

Michael Ansah

Isn’t it this rude person who is trying to get on my nerves. He said he is the owner of the bicycle you seized this morning.

Opana (joins them outside) Oh really? Well!!! Well!!! Well!!! Who do we have here? So you are the one who wants to pull my roof down with your tantrums and threats huh? Well, I’m here now so whatever you intend to do you can go ahead because am not releasing that bicycle today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow or even the years ahead.

Visitor

(goes on his knees and starts murmuring) Oh my God, not again!!! Why is it that everything that will bring me happiness ends up with this man, please sir am begging you to overlook everything and kindly release my bicycle for me. I just got employed in a company as a messenger and this bicycle was given to me by the company and if I don’t go to work with it tomorrow, I don’t know what will happen. Junior, have you seen the mess you have gotten me in?

Michael Ansah

Hehehe so you could be this submissive and you were bragging and boasting like an Ashanti man who has been able to travel to Germany and back to Ghana, you see your wretched life now. Who say man no dey?

Visitor

Massa stop this nonsense you are saying over there can’t you see am begging your father to forgive me and release my bicycle for me, why are you throwing sand in my gari?

Opana

Kwame Fred or whatever you call yourself, if you don’t leave my house in the next couple of seconds, I will let my son tear you into pieces. I don’t want to inform him of our little encounter close to my workplace the other time.

Visitor

But sir, I thought we had solved that problem a long time ago so that is all in the past.

Opana

Really? Wait and see this, my friend. Kwaku Mike this was the idiot I caught the other day with your sister inside the uncompleted building close to my shop trying to rape her.

Michael Ansah

Whaaaaat? And he still had the nerves, impudence, temerity and tenacity to come to this house and exchange words with me. Hahahaha since you said today if you don’t get your bicycle, someone will either end up at the morgue for the other person to end up at the police station, wait for me right here because I will be back soon. (rushes to the house)

Opana

(chuckles and speaks in a low tone to Kwame Fred) My friend if you are wise enough, I need not inform you to run for your life because I know what my son can do when it comes to protecting his younger siblings. He has been searching for you for a long time since the day I informed him of your illegal activity with his little sister.

Visitor

Am not a coward and I don’t back out on things I start, if your son tries anything silly, I will beat him red and blue. Junior run to the house because it is about to turn bloody here and you are too young to witness such things, I will join you very soon in the house after I have finished dealing with this people.

Opana

Hmmmm, my son has never lost a fight to his age mate before and looking at things, today won’t be his first time losing his first fight so if you want to die please be my guest. Hope your family haven’t bought your coffin already because I sell coffin.

Akua Yankey screams inside the room to ask Kwaku Mike where he was going with what he had in his hands.

Opana

I believe you are hearing what is going on in my house, hope you have already written your Will before your untimely death?

Michael Ansah

(pops up with a sharpened cutlass in his hands and uses the back of the blade to hit Kwame Fred over and over) Since you are brave enough to walk into this house to exchange words with me and my father, expect something aggressive that you will never forget in your life if you are able to survive it.

Akua Yankey

(screaming) My dear please stop your son before he kills someone in this house this evening. Kwame Mike, please stop before you murder someone in this house, am on my knees begging you. My love please talk to your son to stop him from murdering someone’s child.

Visitor

(runs for shelter after he had been slapped with the cutlass on several occasions) So because I came to your territory you took the opportunity to molest me huh? The day I meet you outside without any weapon you will see the other side of me. (runs outside when he saw Mike approaching him).

Opana

Hahahahaha, why didn’t you stand there like you will see how a desperate graduate can butcher and dismantle a human being within a minute but hey Kwaku Mike, what intentions were you having in your head as you went in for the cutlass?

Michael Ansah

Exactly what I did to him papa, I wanted to lash him with the cutlass which I did to my satisfaction. I will be right back papa, I want to see if he is still standing outside the house, I don’t want him to come anywhere close to this house.

Meanwhile, Agnes Kyerewaa and her assassin friend were coming to her place so that she could get him adequate information of the target she wanted to deal with.

Agnes Kyerewaa

Ahaa, you see that guy who just came out from the gate? He is the target for our mission, he is the guy I want you to deal with.

Unknown Person

Oh okay, from where he is standing the lighting system is not that bright for me to see his face well but I believe he is the only young person with that physical stature in the house?

Agnes Keyerwaa

No there are about three or four other young persons in the house who have a similar physical stature like him in there.

Unknown Person

But don’t you have his picture or contact number on your phone? That information could make things very easy for my boys and me.

Agnes Kyerewaa

I use to have his pictures and contact number but after the incident, I deleted everything out of anger.

Unknown Person

Well, I will come and lay ambush close to this place if I can personally get some important information myself but still try and see if you can also get anything for me.

Back in Opana’s House:

Opana

Ah, today my son has proven to me that he is indeed and truly my son, see how he dealt with that foolish guy like a thief. He really gave me something to be happy about before the bad day I had this morning comes to an end.

Akua Yankey

So you are happy he pulled out a cutlass to threaten his fellow man? What if he went overboard and did something silly? You know it was just yesterday that you helped secure his bail at the police station for assault charges. If there is any help you can offer him with, this is the time for you to do so, I don’t want this joblessness issue to eat into his head where he will start doing bad things in this town because you know the devil always finds work for the idle hand.

Kwame Fred also after running away from Kwaku Mike to save his life stopped under a street light to check on some bruises he had gotten on his body after Mike had used the cutlass on him. Herh, so this fool did this to me? His father took away my money, made those hoodlums beat me up, took my girlfriend from me and to add icing on it, he made his stupid son beat me like a thief. I swear by my mother’s grave that I will deal with these people even if it will take my life at the end of the day. No one steps on the tail of a snake and goes unbitten. I will attack them even if it will take 10years to get my revenge…
