Quincy’s room:

Maabena Boaduwaa:

(talks with her back facing the door when she hears the door been opened) I knew you will come to your senses and crawl to my feet again Mr. man. All my life no man has ever got the courage to see my nakedness and not crave to have a taste of me. I was wondering where on earth you got that stupid courage to walk out of this room knowing very well what you had to do. You are so lucky I’m in a good mood today like you will see what I will do to you.

Quincy:

(clears his throat before talking) If you were not in a good mood what will you do madam nurse and what are you talking about?

Maabena Boaduwaa:

(senses danger after hearing her boyfriend’s voice behind her in the room, she quickly takes some steps backwards and turns her body to face him) I will starve you with my entire body for the next six months, I will make sure you see Canaan but your feet will never take a step there. I will always arouse your feelings and leave you unattended to. (shakes her chest for her breast to dangle a bit)

Quincy:

(swallows his saliva very hard as his eyes are fixed on the dangling breast) Try that with me and you will see the monster in me, now come here and let me have access to you my gold mine.

Maabena Boaduwaa:

This gold mine concession you are mining from is an illegal one and the government is against illegal mining, say no to galamsey. If you want to own it, then you know what to do. Buyers and investors are making frantic efforts to acquire it so if you play any dull moves then you have yourself to blame.

Quincy:

I will kill anyone who tries to share you with me and I swear by heaven and earth, even if that person is my blood brother, I will still end his life on this earth. I can share my food, drink, dress, money, mother, room and other things of mine with others but for you, any man who makes any advance towards you should consider himself as good as dead.

I will murder that fool and bury him without any other person knowing. If you care to know am obsess over you and you have possessed my entire mind and heart. If you are a bible then be assured that am going to be your preacher, if you are a religion then am going to be your number one follower, if you are political party then am going to be your number one flagbearer, if you are a pomade then am going to rub you on me every second even if I have not taken my bath and if you are food then I will eat you over and over again without getting fed up.

Outside the house:

On phone:

Opana:

Hello, my boy, how are you doing?

Michael Ansah:

Good day Papa, am very fine and how about you and the entire family?

Opana:

We are under the canopy of the most high God. How is Accra treating you and have you landed yourself any job as at now?

Michael Ansah:

Well, Accra has been showing and exposing me to the main side of life Papa. Thankfully one of my friends back at the university today surprised me with some electronic gadgets that I will use in doing my work. Papa, you need to see how sophisticated the machines are and the kind of services it will help me render to people. Papa, in some few months time you will hear my name on the television and radio by the help of God who strengthens me.

Opana:

That is good to hear, you are now proving to me that the Ansah blood runs through you and that you are the heir to succeed me in the future when I join my ancestors. Since you are a big man now I won’t hide things from you now my son, I sold my parcel of lands that I wanted to hand over to you when you get married in some years time.

Michael Ansah:

But why are you telling me this Papa, if you have already executed your plans?

Opana:

Son, I sold the land for a good course, the day you left this place to the city, your sister was knocked down by a septic tanker and the driver took to his heels. Your sister was rushed to the hospital and per critical examinations by the doctors she had to be flown abroad for proper medical treatment if not the worse might happen.

Michael Ansah:

Gracious God, Papa and you are now informing me of this accident and what has happened to my little sister? I am coming back to the village to search for that fool who almost killed my sister, I will so deal with him that he will never sit behind a steering wheel again.

Opana:

(cuts in) Hey hold it there young man, this battle isn’t meant for you to fight, the well being of your sister is my utmost responsibility which am performing marvellously. The money I raised from selling that land is enough to get your sister back to her feet and I bargained with the buyer to the extent that, the person will build a big house for you at the end of the day so don’t worry your head over me selling that land and you coming back won’t make any difference, the police officers here are running series of investigations on the matter.

Michael Ansah:

With what I just heard from you, I retract my rude statement earlier on. So how is mummy taking the whole thing and have you informed Leticia and Deborah about their little sister’s injury?

Opana:

No my son, you are the only one am opening up to because you are the man amongst them and the eldest. I don’t want to distract them with their studies back in school, your mother and I are at the solid helms of affairs and the doctors have assured us that after your little sister undergoes surgery in the States, everything will be fine. I want this conversation to be between the two of us and under no circumstances must any of your sisters hear of this conversation.

Am equally glad you were also gentleman enough to retract your harsh comments when you realised you were quick to react, that is the hallmark of an educated gentleman. Your little sister and mother are likely to leave the shores of Africa by tomorrow evening or the day after.

Michael Ansah:

Oh that sounds great, I want to assure you that no living soul will hear about this conversation and if the need be for me to meet you at the airport when you are seeing them off, please don’t hesitate to notify me.

Opana:

Okay, son, I am happy you are not sounding depressed after I opened up to you on your sister’s predicament, this is a true definition that you have now matured into a full-grown man and you are no longer that little boy I use to know. Work hard and play less in the city and remember “you can lose money when chasing after women but you can’t lose women when chasing after money”. When you take time to work hard and build a reputation for yourself women will rather chase after you and you will not be the one to chase after them.

Remember no woman loves poverty or hardship so ignore those women who will come your way as a distraction because they will dump you when they realise you are a broke ass. I know you are a sharp guy so I won’t talk much, after the coach does his team selection and players get to the field the rest is for them to prove to the world that yes they are professionals. Go and get rich my boy.

Michael Ansah:

Thank you very much, Papa for your fatherly advice, I promise to make you proud of me very soon.

Opana:

Okay son, always place it behind the back of your mind that you have my support both physically and spiritually. Let me leave you so that you continue with what you were doing, I will call you when I get the final confirmation from the medical team working on the travelling documents of your sister and mother. Stay safe and remember never to take what doesn’t belong to you or pay someone who does good to you with evil. (call ends)

Kwaku Mike sits for a while to reflect on the last words of his father before the call ended, he wondered if his father was monitoring him through the necklace he had on or it was just a matured talk. A call came through his phone and that was what brought him back to himself and checking the number it was a landline, he didn’t hesitate to answer the call.

Caller:

Hello Mickey, this is Julia, how are you feeling right now?

Michael Ansah:

(playing smart) I’m feeling better now, thanks for your concern towards me and I will also seize this opportunity to show my profound gratitude for the things you bought for me. I must say I haven’t recovered from the shock I got when I opened the bag and saw the contents in it, my dear may God bless you exceedingly and enlarge your territory.

Caller:

Amen, and I hope you liked everything you saw in the bag?

Michael Ansah:

Did you say like? To use the word like is understatement my dear, simply put I love everything I saw in the bag and as I said I appreciate it so much. The things you bought for me is the best gift any human being born by a woman has ever given to me, I know it cost you a fortune to acquire those things for me and am looking for an avenue where I can reciprocate this wonderful gesture done me.

Caller:

(being sarcastic) Hehehe, someone is bombarding me with big university grammar over here oooo, someone should call 911 for me because am passing out with the heavy grammar been thrown at me.

Michael Ansah:

Hahahaha see you, who speaks better English than you over here, you want to tease me this evening erh?

Caller:

Lol!!! Are you free this evening?

Michael Ansah:

Yeah am free, I don’t have any appointment this evening. Why do you want me to run any errand for you?

Caller:

Not at all my dear, I just want company since I don’t have any friend around to engage me in any form of discussion or conversation and the annoying part is that I have been checked into a presidential suite and there is no one here to talk to.

Michael Ansah:

Oh if it is company you want, I can come over with Quincy, he is a good comedian who can make you pee on yourself with his funny jokes.

Caller:

Oh really but three is a crowd you know, hahahaha.

Michael Ansah:

Oh okay if you say so I have heard you, kindly give me directions to the hotel you are lodging in so I prepare myself and come over at once, I can sense boredom in your voice.

Caller:

I’m in Kempinski hotel, in their presidential suite, I will notify the receptionist of your coming so you won’t have any problem coming over. Also, don’t bother eating when coming.

Michael Ansah:

Okay, my dear, I will be there even before you expect me, see you later. (call ends)

After the call Kwaku Mike sends a text message to Quincy to alert him that he wanted to come over into the room to freshen up and step out, Quincy replied that he could come over and he notified Maabena to wear something.

Quincy:

Please find Something to wear because Mike wants to come in and freshen up. Honestly I don’t like what I came to see inside here seeing you naked, you know am no longer alone over here so certain things you do must stop and you must try to stick to the initial plan.

maabena

So your friend has moved in here my position and place here is now under review huh? I can’t comfortably, do things I use to do in here again right? This nonsense must stop this very moment because I can’t pretend as if I am cool with that.

Quincy:

It’s not like Mike will be staying here forever, his stay here is temporary so restrain some amount of patience for him, he will move the moment things fall in place for him.

Maabena Boaduwaa:

Are you listening to the crap that came out of your mouth? Does it meant after five years things have not gone well for him, he will still be squatting with you and I will continue to be treated like I don’t matter or exist. See you better do something now and I mean now, am giving you three months to sort yourself out with him else don’t blame me for my actions, don’t say I didn’t warn you when I decide to react.

Quincy:

Baby, take your time and face the reality of this matter in a very matured way.

Maabena Boaduwaa:

Mr. lover boy, I am not raising a debatable issue, I have made my intentions known to you so please just respect my view. (covers herself with the bedsheet on the bed)

Michael Ansah:

(knocks and enters the room) Sorry about the distraction my presence here will create, I will rush and take a quick shower so that I catch up on an appointment with Julia.

Maabena Boaduwaa:

(hisses loudly) As if I care about what you want to do and the input your presence brings.

Quincy:

Maabena will you please stop this needless behaviour you are putting up? I thought we were through with this issue, why have you grown cold towards Mike all of a sudden?

Kwaku Mike enters the bathroom and Quincy follows him in there to apologise on behalf of his girlfriend. In return, Kwaku Mike told him not to worry because in his head he knew the very reason why Maabena was behaving that way towards him.

He told Quincy to go and take a look at the things which was in the bag Julia brought for them as he also took his shower, after taking his shower he comes out to iron one of his best shirts and jeans trouser then he dresses up and remembers to put on the golden Rolex watch that was given to him by Henrietta Barnor and he added a very nice perfume he had in his things then he stepped out of the room to go and meet Julia.

He stopped a taxi and told the driver where he was going and in less than forty minutes the taxi driver got him to the huge edifice of Kempinski hotel, he paid the driver off at the entrance since taxis were not allowed to enter the premises of the five-star hotel.

The security at the check post inspected him with a detection machine to see if he was clean from weapons before he was permitted to enter the main compound, upon getting to the reception and making his reason for coming into the hotel known to the receptionist, he was directed to the very floor that the presidential suite was.

He used the elevator to the floor he was to see Julia and in a matter of seconds he was standing in front of Julia’s room, he knocked and heard her voice from the inner room to come inside and make himself comfortable as she was taking a quick shower inside the bathroom.

About five minutes later she came out from the bathroom wearing a very nice transparent nightgown which was exposing everything on Julia from her waist beads to the pant she was wearing and the pointed nipples of her breast which was standing erected in her nightgown. She lit a stick of cigarette and blew the smoke into the air.

Julia:

Sorry if you are not comfortable with me smoking, the cold weather out there had a great influence on me which has turned me into a smoker.

Michael Ansah:

But you know smoking is harmful to your health as it is stated clearly on the box of the cigarette and they say smokers die young so please if there is a way you could use to quit smoking it will really help a lot. Looking at the ceiling in this room there is a smoke detector so can you quench the cigarette before it triggers the alarm.

Julia:

Oh that one, I made one of the hotel workers to disconnect it so that I can smoke freely in this room. I don’t feel comfortable when people stare at me when am smoking. (telephone rings)

Caller:

Hello ma’am there are some men here looking for you?

Julia:

Some men? Am not really expecting any visitors as at now, the person I was expecting is already in so who could those men be?

Can you guess who those men are?
