Doctor, so if the money you quoted for me the other day is ready, how soon can it take for my daughter to be flown out of the country for her surgery to take place?
I will say if the money is ready today, latest by seven days your daughter and her mother should be in the air travelling to the States to get her surgery done.
Did you say her mother? I’m the one going with her outside the country and no one else.
Hahaha, sir that will be the wrong decision to take. Your wife is going to work on your daughter 24/7 when they get there, moreover a woman takes care of a girl and not a man rather. Your daughter’s privacy must be respected so it will be appropriate for her to go with her mother.
Hmmmmm! It is because you are a professional that is why am going to listen to you and not oppose. I will get the money ready hopefully by tomorrow so please start making arrangements for their visa processing and hotel reservation for me. I have to rush and see my lawyer for something very important, my dear we will meet in the house, please call me if anything new pops up.
Okay, my dear and please take very good care of yourself knowing what we have at hand.
At the Adu-Tettey’s residence:
Abi I don’t know why you don’t want me to continue pursuing this matter, this matter is of national interest and if I was to throw my weight into it with my boys in less than 14days we will capture and apprehend every single member of that cartel. This is what we are trained for and doing it brings joy to us, am a proud “SOLDIER”.
You Civilians have University we the Military have Training Colleges, you have Vice-Chancellors and we soldiers have Commandants, you people have Lecturers but we have Instructors. Your day starts by 0700hours but ours start by 0400hours, you wake up at 0600hours and we jump up at 0300hours, you shake hands but we salute.
You civilians wear Gucci, Prada and Armani but we wear Camouflage or dark green Khaki, you keep your hairs but we trim off our hairs, you people wake up but we jump up, you walk but we double up in divisions. You have students but we have Cadets or Recruits, you have Dining Halls but we have Mess, you go on break but we go on Pass.
You have Conference Halls but we have Parade Grounds. You have Graduation Party but we have Passing Out Parade, to you people, injury is for one and one only whilst to us, injury for one is an injury for all. You get short term light drills only in your graduation whilst rigorous drills are our everyday blood tonic.
You civilians have school colleagues but for us we have comrades, you people have Civilian Blood but we have MILITARY Blood. You people Demand Respect but we Command Respect, we took this job knowing that we may never get rich, we have missed out so many holidays, church or mosque services and special occasions in order to protect your lives.
We are expected to work miracles and do things other people are scared to do and even save lives. It has been proven that our life expectancy is shorter than you civilians because of the stress we go through and the sickness we are exposed to, yet there are no hero movies about us.
We must give our lives every day for people we don’t know, have never met before and even those who don’t like us. When families are home enjoying alone, we are out there in the cold, we are exposed to dangerous situations and all in the name of protecting properties and saving lives. We are warriors who gave oaths to die for our people and our dear country. I am a very proud ”SOLDIER”.
(claps her hands) Bravo!!! What a marvellous speech, you need to be made the speechwriter of the Chief of Défense Staff (CDS) or even the President. My dear, am telling you for the last time that I don’t want to be a young widow. Let me please enjoy my marriage with you, my king. If I have to lie down on the floor to beg you, I am willing to do it, my love. Please am begging you with the name of God and our little children.
Honey, what is all this? So, can’t I do my job again?
(raising her voice) This is not the job you were assigned to do my love. if you don’t withdraw your interest in this case, I will have no option than to report you to your parents and the pastor at church. What is all this?
Abi, you just raised your voice at me for the first time in my 18 years of being with you.
Vincent, I will raise my voice at you again and again if you don’t listen to me. You know very well that I never liked the idea of you joining the army as you graduated from university. I have been enduring all this while anytime you travel on foreign missions and bush operations. When was the last you spent three consecutive days in this house with the kids and myself? When was even the last time that you made love to me? When was the last time you took us out to shop or buy ice cream even for the kids? Do you know how many times I have to lie and cover up for you when the children ask me of your whereabouts? Do you know how bad I felt when Reedorf asked me if you truly care about us? Are you the only military personnel at the Presidency? Vincent, I’m losing it and it’s about time you do something about your work and the time you have for us.
Woooow, so how long have you been harbouring this anger in you towards me? Don’t I give you money to go shopping and take the kids out? Do I starve you of material things? Am I not trying well enough?
Vincent, are you listening to yourself? Do you think am a materialistic person? Don’t I earn more than you at the end of the month? If you give me money for shopping and outing with the kids, do you also give me money to go out and buy sex or are you planning to buy me a sex doll or dildo so I make use of it when I am horny? See, am a human being with red blood flowing through my veins and if you have forgotten I also have feelings that need to be attended to.
Oh, so all this noise and voice raising at me is because of sex huh?
What were you thinking Vincent? When was the last time you made me feel like a real young woman? Have you forgotten that sex holds marriage for about 70%? You better…
(cuts in) Come here my pretty damsel. Am sorry for neglecting you for some time now my Queen. You are very right with every single word you said and to make things up to you, I am going to switch my phone off so I spend quality time with you today.
Today I will make you gasp for breath. Since I have starved you for long, I will combine all and give it to you this hot morning through the afternoon.
(picks his phone and dials a number to give some information to the person)
Hello, this is the office of the President VIP Protection Unit, how may I help you?
Hello Hannah, how are you? It is me Brigadier Adu-Tettey. Some important things came up for me to handle so for the next 3 days you won’t see me in the office. Cancel any appointment I have and tell Colonel Ronnie Teddy to call me for an important discussion because his line is not going through.
Okay sir, I will convey your message to him the moment he walks into the office but before I forget, Sir you have a meeting with the Defence and Interior Ministers at 4pm today.
I will speak with Colonel Ronnie Teddy to sit in for me since I won’t be around for the next 3days. Please channel all problems and concerns to him since he is my 2IC over there. Have a nice day. (drops call)
Baby, does it mean that am going to have you for me for the next 3 days?
Yes, my cupcake. Am all yours, so do as you please with me but please be a bit gentle on me wai.
Guys, food is ready, let me go and wash down so I come and dish it out when am back.
Can I join you inside there?
What for if I may ask?
Today you are asking me what for because my friend is here? Well, let me tell you since you want to know why I want to join you. I will help bathe your back since your hands can’t reach there.
Are you the one who has been doing that for me when am in my house?
Maabena, don’t do that to the birthday boy. Please consider him and let him follow you in there. You can also give him a birthday bath.
Hmmmm! If you say so. Mike, I will consider and make him follow me inside there but Quincy no touching baby.
Kwaku Mike, God bless you and thank you for the word so sweet. My dear, I promise to be a very good boy inside there. Oya make we go.
As soon as the two love birds left to the washroom, Kwaku Mike started feeling the strangling pain on his neck for a short time then immediately his phone started to ring.
Did Brigadier do the right thing with the call he made?
Now that Kwaku Mike has opened up to Quincy and Maabena what is his faith?
Why did Kwaku Mike feel a short strangling on his neck? Is a looming problem approaching?
