Brigadier Adu-Tettey and his beautiful wife walk majestically into the hospital followed by Captain Awude. In that same moment, the matron saw them coming and quickly turned to climb the staircase to avoid the couple but wasn’t fast enough.

Mrs Adu-Tettey

Hello matron good morning, I trust you are doing well?

Matron

(faking a smile) My dear I’m not too fine ooo, please see the doctor for me to attend to some pressing matters at the surgical ward. (walks away without wasting any time)

Mrs Adu-Tettey

This woman always acts weird. If she were an animal, I would call her a chameleon because she keeps changing every now and then. She couldn’t even wait for us to ask her how the young man is doing this morning.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

Hahahaha my love please it’s too early for your funny jokes. Let’s try to see the doctor for a report before we move to the young man’s private ward. Ah here comes the doctor even, doc please come over.

Doctor

Hello Mr and Mrs Adu-Tettey, how are you doing this morning? You are in very early as expected.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

We are very fine by the special grace of God but please, next time address me properly with my rank. I’m not a civilian and getting promoted to the rank Brigadier at a very young age was not based on nothing. It was through hard work, commitment and dedication to the motherland.

Doctor

I’m very sorry Brigadier Adu-Tettey for my unintentional utterances, I meant no harm and disrespect. It was just an oversight.

Mrs Adu-Tettey

My husband, you love post paa ooo.

Captain Awude

Madam what my boss said is very true and if he wasn’t a doctor, I would have let him do some frog jumps for disrespecting and disregarding the rank of my boss.

Doctor

Please son of man, I beg of you not to be angry with me. Have you gone to see the young man?

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

We just walked in and wanted to see you first before going to visit him at his ward.

Doctor

Nurse Boaduwaa, kindly call the matron for me. And why is the emergency alarm on this early morning? I hope it is not an electrical fault, because the electrical department told us at the last meeting just a few days ago that everything electronic in this hospital is in good shape.

Nurse Boaduwaa

Doc there is a serious problem in this hospital and I don’t think I’m the right person to release such information to you, so as you said, let me get the matron for you so she briefs you concerning the matter on board.

Doctor

Wait, a second young lady. I want you to tell me the problem right away and stop beating about the bush.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

Doc, as you can see, she is not ready to voice out anything to you now so let her call the matron for you so she tells you what you want to know.

Remember you can force the horse to the riverside but you can’t force it to drink the water from the river. Whatever the problem is, we will get to the root of it when the matron comes before you.

Nurse Boaduwaa

Thank you very much, sir for your understanding, I …….

Doctor

(interrupts the nurse without allowing her to finish her statement) Will you shut your mouth and get me the matron, all you people know here is to poke your nose into unnecessary matters. If I find out that what you are harbouring inside you is nothing too serious and not concerning the progress of this hospital, I will personally suspend you indefinitely. Now get out of my sight.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

Take it easy on the young lady and Captain Awude please notify the men to be on standby and be very vigilant, they should also remember that no fraternity over here. They can open fire if need be.

Captain Awude

(salutes his boss) Yes sir, your orders will be carried out now. (walks away)

Matron

(joins the doctor and the couple with an angry face) Doc there is a serious problem here in the hospital.

Doctor

If there is a serious problem, why haven’t I received any news as at now? Start talking because the more you delay the greater the problem becomes.

Matron

Doc it is about the young man the couple brought here early this morning…

Mrs Adu-Tettey

Please, don’t tell me he is dead?

Matron

I wish he was dead. Things would be simpler for us to handle here. I don’t know what to say or how to say this.

Doctor

Matron you are not helping matters here, please go straight to the point and stop beating about the bush.

Matron

Hmmmmm, doctor today my eyes have seen my ears. What my two eyes have witnessed this morning, I don’t know how my mouth can narrate it to you or anyone.

Doctor

(raising his voice) M.A.T.R.O.N!!!! Will you please hit on the nail directly and stop going round round like a boy who wants to propose to a girl for the first time.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

Madam matron can you please in simple language explain to us what the problem is? Who knows? We might even have a solution to the problem!!!

Matron

Well. since you are all eager and desperate to hear what I have to say, I will tell you people. The young man you brought here early this morning is nowhere to be found in this hospital.

Mrs Adu-Tettey

Whaaaat? Could you please repeat what you just said to us?

Matron

Madam you heard me crystal clear, the young man is missing from this hospital. We have searched every corner of this hospital but there is no trace of him. Doctor, I believe there is one person here who can help us with answers.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

Madam, I swear by the pistol in my sidearm pouch that if I don’t see this young man before daybreak, some people won’t live to see sun set. Is this how careless you and your staff are? Pray very hard and well for us to see that young man and in good health or else, you will clap your hands for me.

Back at Opana’s House:

Opana

My dear, I’m going to see the estate developer at his site, I want him to know that I’m now ready to sell my portions of land and palm plantation to him and I hope he will still have interest in my lands.

Akua Yankey

He will certainly have his eyes on those lands my dear, you know that, the place is at a very vantage point where every rich man would like to build his dream house. He will have no reason to turn your proposal down and even if he doesn’t have enough money to purchase the land, I believe he will go and borrow from somewhere and come and buy your lands so don’t be discouraged for even a second.

Opana

Thanks very much for motivating me my dear, honestly my spirit was a bit down but with the words that you have spoken to me, I’m having a renewed spirit. Please hurry up and go to the hospital to see if our daughter has regained consciousness from the coma she is now, and please don’t go and cry on her for it is a very bad omen to do that kind of thing when someone is in the hospital or in police custody. I will pass by after talking with the estate developer. Has our son called you or have you also called him?

Akua Yankey

No, my dear, I haven’t heard from him. I tried his line last night but his phone was off. I will call him later when I buy airtime on my way to the hospital. Let me rush and get ready, I wish you the best of luck.

Opana

Thank you very much my dear, I will call you if there is any new development. Please my dear, take good care of yourself for me because I can’t afford to lose you should anything happen to you.

Akua Yankey

You too my dear, please be careful when you step outside and please open your eyes very well when you are dealing with the man financially.

Opana steps out of his house and he sees Collins Twumasi walking into the compound with a very nice lady and he stops them immediately.

Opana

Young man stop right there! Don’t move an inch koraa.

Collins Twumasi

Hello, landlord, good morning ooo.

Opana

What is good about this morning young man, your rent has expired and instead of coming to settle your debt, you go about changing women like your dress. Hey young lady, are you the one he brought home last night?

Young Lady

No sir.

Opana

What about yesterday morning?

Young Lady

Please, no.

Opana

Mmmmm, what about two nights ago?

Young Lady

No, please.

Opana

Okay, then it must be three or four nights ago?

Young Lady

(getting furious) No sir this is my first time of coming to this house so I don’t know what you are talking about.

Opana

Hahahaha, small girls are young, did he tell you that he loves you and that he will marry you?

Young Lady

Yes please, that is why I’m coming over to see where he lives so that I start performing my woman duties in his room.

Opana

Awwww, poor child, do you know woman duties very well? Well I wish you all the best of luck but look around this compound, I am Opana “the rough boy” and I own the entire house. As you are shaking, twisting and whinging your waist like a locomotive gravel mixer should you ever come to meet a lady in his room, walk quietly out of my house without making any noise because the man you are seeing next to you is the definition of a womanizer. I didn’t say anything but learn to count your teeth with your tongue. Have a great time in his room.

Young Lady

(almost in tears) So Collins all the sweet words you were showering me with were just lies, you have a lot of women around you and you deceived me for me to break up with my guy. God will punish you Collins, I don’t want to ever see your ugly face again in my house you pig. I curse the day I set eyes on you and don’t ever call my phone again, you foolish idiot. (walks away)

Collins Twumasi

(runs after the lady) Baby wait for me so that I explain myself to you please. I am a changed man now please wait.

Opana

Hahahaha, until you pay me the rent you are owing me, any lady you bring into this house will hear negative things about you, you owe me and you want to go and throw your waist about in my room. I will deal with you people squarely in this house……
