Brigadier Adu-Tettey

Excuse me, madam, did you say anything to me?

Matron

Yes please, I was asking who was going to foot the medical bills of the youngman.

Mrs Adu-Tettey

Ah madam don’t you have any shame? Are you still asking for money after you endangered the youngman’s life. Are you that heartless or….. ……

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

(cuts the wife short) Sweetheart please save your breath for me to handle this matter, you still have the mouth to…….

Doctor

(interrupts Brigadier Adu-Tettey from talking) Please sir kindly let me handle this problem, matron please don’t compound the problem this hospital is already facing. Your question can land us in deep mess, please sir until the youngman is found there is no financial transaction going to take place between us, I will recruit the services of a private detective to help us find the youngman but please kindly give us more time so that we can search for your son for you.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

I will think about it and get back to you later, I will be back in 72hours to hear what you have for me and make sure I get positive results, if not what happened to the male nurse at the private ward will happen to you and yours might probably be greater than his. It’s free advice to you doctor, have a nice day.

The brigadier and his wife walk out from the hospital filled with anger against what had happened inside the hospital.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

These fools have impeded me from getting a quick promotion at the presidency. The youngman would have been helpful in this murder case for us to clump down those notorious drug peddlers.

Mrs Adu-Tettey

Honey, everything happens for a reason, those guys are very dangerous so if this youngman can’t be found let sleeping dogs lie, I don’t want anything to happen to you or any member of my family. Please if the young man is strong and has been able to escape let him go with his problems.

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

If you say so I have heard you, my love.

Captain Awude

Boss, so are we just going to forget this matter just like that without doing anything about it? You know we the men in camouflage don’t back out in the things we do, we love to fight to the end and we don’t retreat neither do we surrender.

Mrs Adu-Tettey

Captain Awude please are you married and do you have children?

Captain Awude

Am not married and neither do I have children madam.

Mrs Adu-Tettey

If you are not married and without children then I will plead with you to stay out of this matter, I won’t trade my family and marriage life with anything that can bring doom to me. I am not ready to wear black or bury any of my young children now or anytime soon, they must grow and bury me rather. Honey please take me out of this place right this moment.

Captain Awude

But madam, I don’t mean anything bad, I………

Brigadier Adu-Tettey

(cuts in) Captain say no more, this chapter is closed for now. Drive us back to my bungalow and go to the office afterwards, I will join you later.

Captain Awude

Okay sir, your order always stands. You are my boss and commander so whatever you say I will follow it without complaining.

Quincy’s House:

Quincy

Hmmmm baby, my friend here is in a big mess, his life is in great danger and now that he is with us, we are equally in the same mess. He was a witness to a murder case and now those murderers are after his life, they even shot him whiles chasing him but fortunately for him, the bullet hit him in the thigh. He escaped to the hospital for treatment and again the bad people followed him there but God been so good he narrowly escaped from them again.

Maabena Boaduwaa

Ah so are the bad people not aware that you are a nurse and for nurses, we take the oath of allegiance not to communicate anything we see with our eyes to anyone?

Michael Ansah

I am not a nurse Maabena, the scrubs you saw me wearing was not mine, I took it from a male nurse who was appointed to monitor my health condition after the surgery I did in my thigh and hand.

Maabena Boaduwaa

So how did you get to know my name?

Michael Ansah

Your name is boldly written on the name tag on your chest, if I wasn’t fast this morning like the murderers will gun me down right at the hospital. Am just thankful to God for my life and been alive till now is a very big miracle to me.

Maabena Boaduwaa

So you mean those murderers came around the hospital and you didn’t raise an alarm for them to be apprehended?

Michael Ansah

Apprehend? By who my dear? Escaping from the hospital quietly was the best thing I could ever do because if I tried to make any little sound, no one at the hospital will be alive by now to tell his or her story. Those murderers are from a very powerful cartel and will go any mile to keep their identity discreet.

Maabena Boaduwaa

This is serious oooo but I didn’t see any bad looking people at the hospital this morning even though I was seated at the reception all through this morning before handing over to the morning shift nurse.

Michael Ansah

Well I believe you saw some men wearing a suit this morning at the hospital?

Maabena Boaduwaa

Mmmm the people I saw and spoke with were police detectives and they wanted information from me about a patient who was brought to the hospital with gun shot wound in the early hours of this morning.

Michael Ansah

Those people were not real police officers, they were imposters posing as police detectives.

Maabena Boaduwaa

(holding her mouth) Ah so you were the one they were looking for? Hey, you are very lucky then because I saw some of them with guns fixed in their trousers. Mike, then you must try and stay out of sight for a very long time or possibly relocate to a faraway place from here because when they get you they won’t spare your life.

Michael Ansah

Luckily for me my dear, none of those murderers know me by face so if none of you, who I have opened up to betray me and stab me in the back, those murderers won’t ever find me.

Quincy

(switches the tv on) Ah isn’t it the guy who was murdered news that is been telecast?

Michael Ansah

Oh yes that is the news and look at the picture of the murdered guy been displayed. The police are now stating that anyone who has information leading to the guy’s death should come to the police headquarters with his or her information for a handsome reward.

Maabena Boaduwaa

Oh such a handsome young man, these people have wasted a young soul like that. Imagine giving birth with such a handsome face and how the children are going to look like.

Quincy

(clears his throat) Women and nice things, you have just started fantasising about giving birth with him. Hmmmm women, you are all the same but you don’t want to be told the truth. Wait a minute guys, I know this guy back at senior high school, so all the rich and luxurious life he was living then came from drug money?

He made us believe that his parents were very rich and because of that he rented an apartment in town and always drove a car to school even at that tender age.

He took away my first girlfriend in the school with his money and swag. The way he lined up the girls in our school that time erh, I even heard he banged some national service personnels who came to serve the country in our school accounts department. Now you see your life has ended at a very young age, indeed there is no shortcut to heaven and he thought he was fast like a horse but now the slow tortoise will crawl and get to finish line(old age) without him. All the same may his soul rest in peace.

Michael Ansah

So Maabena, can you keep this thing as top-class secret because the moment you tell another soul about this then you should know that the entire world will hear of it because your friend or best friend also has his or her best friend that he or she shares secrets with. I beg of you to seal your lips and make what you have heard from us stay in your head and this very room, anyone who hears this story is as good as dead.

Maabena Boaduwaa

You guys can count on me, baby won’t you say something to your friend to defend me on how secretive I am.

Quincy

Bro there is no cause for fear and panic, my baby can be trusted when issues like this come to mind. Be rest assured that you are in safe hands.

Michael Ansah

I’m very much okay with your assertion so far Mr and Mrs Quincy Asante.

Quincy

Hahaha, can we make merry now since today is my birthday? Enough of this all serious business that won’t bring money to us.

Maabena Boaduwaa

I brought sparkling wine and it is in the polybag together with your birthday cake. I will equally prepare a very nice birthday meal for us to enjoy so let the party begin……..
