Quincy

Bro, this is where I live, it’s not luxurious or big but let’s just manage it for now and feel at home. I know when the society and the world hear our story in future, they will never envy any rich man. I always say that jealousy and envy are the tools of the devil that he uses to expand his territory. But what are you doing in this nurses scrubs, hope it is not what am thinking?

Michael Ansah

Did you say luxurious or big? Man, you should be proud of yourself for what you have and have been able to achieve, don’t we have the same certificate? Am I not coming to squat at your end for some time so I try to organise myself?

Quincy

I know but I just won make you know the matter for ground, maybe your expectations were high as you were coming.

Michael Ansah

My friend stop whining and be grateful for the little mercies God has been showering on you, am not a lady who you should try pleasing, even if you were sleeping in an uncompleted house or kiosk, I will still join you without complaining. Am here for us to join forces to make money so don’t worry, it is the end that matters and not the beginning, been alive up till now is a miracle.

Quincy

Aha that reminds me, so where did you go last night after you made me a watchman all night? For you I fear you more than Messi and CR7 even on the pitch, tell me which lady hosted you last night and why are you in nurses scrubs?

Michael Ansah

What are you thinking about Mr man? My hands and mind remains very clean, if not for this nurses scrubs like I will be a dead man by now. My brother be very grateful to God for my life and help me convey God’s praises and adorations to Him, it is a big miracle for me to be alive from yesterday all the way to today.

Quincy

You have been beating about the bush since you started talking go straight to the point my brother.

Michael Ansah

Bro when coming to the city yesterday a guy double crossed me and took my seat in a bus I was supposed to board to the city, I tried to oppose him for him to relinquish the seat but he threatened me that he will beat me up. As a result of that I alighted from the bus intending not to come to the city on a bad note.

Later I got a 4×4 car coming to Accra so I joined the car and after some miles into the journey we came to meet the bus I was supposed to board in a ditch gutted with fire, my brother no one escaped to tell his or her story.

Quincy

Yeah I think I heard that story in the evening news last night. I was bothered but hearing from you made me okay but I still want to know where you slept last night and why you in nurses scrubs?

Michael Ansah

The game is been brought to your house so why are you rushing to injure yourself outside. When we got to Accra last night I decided to call you to meet me and pick me up. Unfortunately the phone went off during the call as a result of low battery . I picked a taxi to drop me at that restaurant close to the school and the car stopped along the bush before the houses on the path. The driver tried all he could but the car wouldn’t just start, I had no option than to walk since no car was coming that way, my brother. After walking some distance on the lonely road, I saw a car headlight approaching, I wanted to stop the car and ask for a ride but my instincts told me to hide so I went into the bush and the very place I was hiding the car stopped infront of me and some fearful men in black got down from the car holding guns in their hands.

Quincy

Allahuakbar, hope they didn’t see you?

Michael Ansah

No my brother, but hmmmm they brought out a guy who had been blindfolded and shortly another car came from the opposite direction, a middle aged man came down and judging from the middle aged man’s statement the one they had blindfolded was his worker but he had absconded with the man’s money and concealment, I mean they were drug dealers and right in my sight inside the bush I was hiding, the middle aged man shot the blindfolded guy in the chest three times and he fell down dead.

Quincy

My goodness so what happened next bro?

Michael Ansah

Well, all this while I was recording what was going on with a very sophisticated phone I was having on me.

Quincy

Ah but your phone was off so what sophisticated phone are you talking about?

Michael Ansah

When we(I and the people in the 4×4 car) got to the accident scene I stumbled on a phone there. I later got to know that it was for the guy who took my seat in the bus, on the street was a big tree and per my calculation, the driver of the bus tried to dodge the tree and he lost control, the bus somersaulted and fell in the ditch.

Quincy

Oh okay, I now get the picture as to how you got the sophisticated phone. So what happened next?

Michael Ansah

Charlie, from nowhere some ants started biting me from my hideout and it made me make a sound which got the attention of the bad guys. The middle aged man ordered them to chase after me and bring my body to him whether dead or alive.

The guys gave me the chase of my life and they started firing their guns at me. The first bullet nearly entered my arm but I was lucky because I fell. The phone fell from my hand and since time was not on my side, I didn’t bother to search for it in the dark, I dropped my bag so that I could run effectively and swiftly. In no time another gunshot came through and this time it hit my thigh and I felt it all over, something in me told me not to give up when I heard car horns blurring some few meters away from me.

I gathered renewed strength and headed to the street, as I got to the street no one was willing to stop his or her car for me so I jumped into the street and I was knocked down by a lady who came down from her car to help me to the hospital, these bad guys didn’t give up and they were still firing at us. The lady helped me into her car and drove me to the hospital where the bullet was taken out of my thigh and my injuries were taken care of.

At dawn one of the nurses came to check up on me in the private ward I was kept to give me an injection which will put me to sleep for some time, I outsmarted him and injected him with the injection meant for me, I took his dress and placed him on my bed. When I got down the bad guys had disguised themselves as police detectives and were at the hospital to finish what they couldn’t end the previous night.

Quincy

My God so how did you escape from them?

Michael Ansah

Great question my brother, I was confused but I had to summon the courage and act like a brave dude, I bumped into their leader who asked for my help to locate the ward which had people with gun shot wound or injury. I seized that opportunity and gave him a wrong direction to the last floor of the hospital where only women and babies were. You can’t believe that, that idiot gave me a hundred cedis for the direction. All because I told him that people with gunshot injuries or wounds were kept at a secret place in our hospital, he was so grateful for my assistance and I managed to escape from the hospital but before leaving the hospital, I saw a damsel who was eyeing me with a burning desire in her eyes.

Quincy

You and women issue, even when your life was in danger you were still eyeing a pretty lady. So how did you manage to call me with your phone since it went off the previous night?

Michael Ansah

As I woke up, I saw my phone on charge at the private ward I was lying. I don’t know who placed the phone on charge but the person did me a lot of good, the money that idiot gave me was what I used in transporting myself to this place easily.

Quincy

Woooow indeed the good Lord has been merciful to you and I believe that for being alive now God has something bigger ahead for you. Let me get you something to eat and after that, you go and take a cold shower, once again feel at home.

Quincy prepares breakfast and as they were eating, he switched his television on and breaking news was been aired.

Quincy
