Opana gets to the estate developer’s end and he tells him his purpose for coming over.

Opana

Good morning Mr Addo, I will make my mission of being here very brief so that you can proceed with your day’s activities.

Mr Addo

Good morning Mr Ansah, let me offer you something first as courtesy demands. Mmmm Esi get my visitor some fruit juice and snacks. Mr Ansah please feel at home.

Opana

Oh, I feel more comfortable being addressed as Opana. I came here in respect to the visit you paid some time back regarding my parcel of lands and palm plantation.

Mr Addo

Oh, that is good but please let my wife be part of this discussion. She is my business partner in the estate development business.

Esi

Sir, please your fruit juice and snacks is served.

Mr Addo

Very good, please call your madam for me right now, tell her to stop everything she is doing and join us immediately . We have an important guest here.

(A very beautiful woman with well endowed curves joins Opana and Mr Addo shortly)

Mr Addo

Opana this is my better half and business partner, she is Mrs Pearl Addo.

Opana

Nice meeting you, madam and for you Mr Addo, I must confess that you have eyes for quality and good things. Your wife is an epitome of beauty and she looks like the first lady of our country, indeed behind every successful man is a very pretty woman who assists him in decision making.

Mrs Pearl Addo

Am flattered with your words sir and if it was not my husband here, I will say you are trying to flirt with me……(she smiles).

Opana

(laughing out loud) You are equally full of humour Mrs Addo, can I even afford to buy your pomade? Please ooo don’t give me the chance to choke on my laughter.

Mr Addo

I feel am the luckiest person on earth with my wife beside me. You can only admire her but she remains my wife forever.

Opana

Hahahaha that is very true, please let me go straight to my reason for coming into your house this morning. The last time you came to my end, you registered your interest in my palm plantation and lands. I turned your offer down even though you gave me good reasons to sell my land to you. I had the chance recently to travel to some of the neighbouring communities around this town and I saw some of the developments that you have brought over to those place and I must confess I really liked what I saw, I have always been someone who has taste for beautiful things as such I don’t settle for less in my endeavours.

I realised that if you are given the opportunity you will turn the fortune of this community around by bringing investors and billionaires to it. Upon deliberations with my wife who is not here at the moment, I have decided to sell my lands and palm plantation to you on some terms and conditions. If you are okay with it, we will go into a documentation process which my lawyer will come up with.

Mr Addo

Oh, this is good news Opana, can you brief me a little on your terms and conditions?

Opana

Mmmm first am selling my lands in the dollar currency and also when you complete building on the land I sell to you, you will give me one of the expensive houses you built on it.

Mrs Pearl Addo

But sir, isn’t your offer too much?

Opana

My dear, how much is too much? My little research on your estates has revealed that you don’t sell your houses or estates in our cedi currencies. As such, what is the big deal if you buy the land you will build on in dollars? I believe you know where the land is and I wouldn’t like to tell you the number of people who have been to my place with the interest of purchasing it, I don’t know why I even came here to discuss business with you in the first place.

Mr Addo

Sweetheart please can you allow me to handle this matter, Opana please don’t be angry with what my wife said. You know how women like to do business sometimes.

Opana

Oh am not angry but I equally don’t like doing business with women either. So are you interested in my clause or you are not cool with it?

Back to the mansion of the Boss

Boss

Scorpion I hope you came with good news?

Scorpion

Boss, am sorry but it seems that guy is smarter than what I was thinking.

Boss

What do you mean by that?

Scorpion

Boss you can’t imagine that guy outsmarted a nurse at the hospital he was taking treatment from, injected him with a substance that made him sleep for him to abscond.

Ginola

Scorpion why are you not telling the boss that we came in contact with him but he gave us wrong direction which aided him to escape from us easily.

Boss

Whaaat? Scorpion I can see now that you have lost it and you can’t sting anymore, the poison in you is finished and it’s about time I dispose and relieve you of your duties in this cartel. Your incompetence is becoming unpardonable and if I continually allow you to spearhead my operations, you will sink my ship in the ocean. Am giving you twenty-one days to get me that fool, or else Ginola will take your position and lead my operations, you know what that means.

Scorpion

I’m very much aware of that boss and I promise to smoke that guy out very soon.

Boss

Henceforth you and Ginola are going to work hand in hand and don’t try to be superior over him. If by the time I have given you, that fool is not brought to me, then I will give Ginola the authority to lead the boys including you. Do I make myself clear.

Scorpion

It’s crystal clear boss.

Ginola

Thank you very much boss for the confidence you have imposed on me, I promise not to disappoint you. Expect the best from me sir and for that fool who wants to cause you sleepless nights, his days on earth are numbered.

Boss

Now you guys should get out of my sights and tell Debbie to bring the girls into my inner chamber, I need French massage to calm my mind and nerves.

The guys walk out of the mansion and Ginola sees how moody Scorpion is so he engages him in a conversation to find out what the problem is:

Ginola

Bruv what is the problem, you look depressed?

Scorpion

What game are you trying to play huh?

Ginola

Game? What do you mean by me playing games my guy?

Scorpion

The slow movement of the lion doesn’t make it a weakling, don’t try to double cross me because if you do I won’t think twice to crush you. All the games you were playing inside there, I want you to know that I saw your tactics and I believe now you are happy because you have been elevated to my status but I want you to know that, I have seen, fought and conquered battles much difficult than this case we are facing now. This matter is easy for me, watch your back when walking because you are not safe any longer in this world. Go and inform Debbie that the boss wants to see the girls and herself in his inner chamber. (walks away from Ginola with a straight face)

Ginola

(talking to himself) What did I do wrong? was it wrong for me to let the boss know the issue at hand? Who cares if you are angry with what I said, after all, I was in this cartel long before you joined. You think because you were first a land guard you are criminally minded than me, if you don’t know I was once a pick pocket who graduated to become an armed robber before I later became an assassin, I have robbed and killed many people than you have ever done so chill out my friend. Everyone for himself God for us all.
