I have to be very careful the way I go about things before I shoot myself in the foot, I have to stamp my feet solidly on the ground before I lose my grip. Now I find myself in two worlds, should I go with my friend or lover? Women are unpredictable most times and as my dad use to say “fear women and live long,” if I decide to throw Mike out from this place where would he go since I forced him to join me in the city and on the other hand losing Maabena will be the biggest blow I will ever get.

She is my dream woman and the woman I want and wish to spend the rest of my life wit., I suffered before getting her and losing her now will be a disaster to my whole being, God if you did a miracle for Abraham, Joseph, Job, Samuel, Isaac and the other guys in the bible then please this is my time to also get my miracle.

Please touch the heart of Maabena to be sober or let someone rent a room for Mike so he packs out, now I can’t please both of them and I can’t equally lose any of them since they are both important to me. indeed where God boils his food, that is where the devil also roasts his smoked fish but whatever happens, I will overcome this battle as a man, my best legal advisor the pillow will assist me in my decision making.

Maabena stops a taxi and jumps in and as the car drove off she got herself thinking, if I don’t play smart this idiot called Mike might ruin my relationship with Quincy. But honestly, this guy has guts paaa oooo, ever since I started chasing men, no man born of a woman has ever resisted me or turned his back on me. I have been the one playing difficult for them to get me but look at me today been rejected by a guy who is even squatting with my boyfriend, hmmmm the world is something paa oooo, I flex men with expensive cars and money and here I am been flexed by a nobody. I have to do everything possible to clear him from Quincy’s end before he tells him anything, if he will succumb to my demand then we will move along nicely but if he is adamant then he has himself to blame.

Back at the Hotel:

Julia’s Suite:

My God if this bag got to the wrong hands that would be my end, this concealment is so far the huge one I have been mandated to handle and if anything goes wrong my life would be in great danger. Let me check if everything is in place first before I hand it over to the boss, I don’t want any problem with that man because the way he talks to me most times, it is very scary.

Hotel Waiting Area:

Michael Ansah:

Guys let me check on my wife, she has kept long and you know women, by now she is standing in front of the mirror to check if she is looking gorgeous before she walks back to us and I can see you are in a hurry to get back to your office.

Leader:

You are very right sir, I wish we were already in the office because some senior officers will be coming round to check if all the night shift staffs have reported to work on time.

Michael Ansah:

Give me a few minutes and I will be back with her or the the bag in question. Excuse me gentlemen (rushes to the elevator and makes way to Julia’s suite)

Julia’s Suite:

Julia:

(gives a breath of relief) Ah thank God everything is intact, how was I going to explain myself if anything went wrong. I must find a nice way to reward these guys that brought my bag to me and make them my friends at all cost, they might be useful and helpful to me in the near future. (door opens)

Michael Ansah:

Hey, the guys are still waiting for you and you are standing in front of the bed doing nothing.

Julia:

You scared me, Mickey, you should have at least knocked before entering, what if I was naked?

Michael Ansah:

Hahaha did you say I should knock and what if you were naked? Have you forgotten that you undressed before me a while ago before we went to meet the guys downstairs? Were you under the influence of something by then?

Julia:

(playing smart) Don’t be silly, Mr man, I think I have misplaced something but I can’t simply figure out what that thing is and the men from the airline are also waiting for me downstairs.

Michael Ansah:

(cuts in) Let me get the bag to them so we don’t keep them waiting for long, they are really in a hurry and delaying them any further will be bad news for them when they get to the office. They shouldn’t suffer for a good deed they did for you or better still us, do you intend to give them anything as a gift or token for the gesture they did for you?

Julia:

Of course, my dear but that won’t be now since they might see it as a bribe so please take their contact numbers so that in some days time we meet with them and surprise them. They have really done me a lot of good and I need to reward them handsomely but you please give them this to buy fuel to start with, I will find the time and go and settle them later.

Michael Ansah:

Okay dear, let me rush and hand over the bag and this little token you have for them. I will be back before you expect me. (walks out to meet the guys from the airline)

Back at the Harbour:

Boss:

(on phone) Is the place ready for our meeting this evening Mr Man?

Ginola:

Yes boss everything is under control.

Boss:

I hope you have settled everyone who needs to be sorted out? I don’t want what happened the other time to repeat itself again because I won’t forgive you if there is any lapses this time around. I and the other members are driving to the place and we will be there soon.

Ginola:

Boss there is no cause for alarm, I have personally seen to everything and there won’t be a reason for you to complain or have any problem. The last time the management of the hotel was having some technical challenges so the payment I made didn’t reflect in their database hence that negative approach from the lady who came to you.

Boss:

Well I hope everything will go as stated by you and let me warn and promise you that if anything goes bad, erh, God will be my witness to what will happen to you. You know that am very pissed off today and I won’t forgive anyone who does a mistake to any assignment I have tasked any of you to do. Call everyone you know should be present for this meeting because the moment I and Mr Karl Simpson gets there the meeting will commence without waiting for anyone because when the elder baths in the house then it means the job has ended.

Ginola:

I have called almost everyone who needs to be present here so boss don’t worry your head at all. By the time you get here, everyone will be seated waiting for you so that the meeting will commence.

Boss:

I have heard you, expect us there in a short while.

Opana:

My dear, I hope you have got everything you’ll need there packed, aeroplanes don’t wait for its passengers but rather the passengers come waiting for it so they can get onboard. It’s your first time travelling outside the country so I will give you a little advice, when you get to both airports (Kotoka and JFK airport) don’t try to play a good Samaritan role by helping anyone with his or her bag or luggage.

Also don’t bother to assist anyone who tells you to help hold the child or try to help someone who is sick, bear in mind you are not a flight attendant or medical practitioner and moreover you haven’t even cured or assisted your own daughter well enough. The only person you can render a helping hand to is the one you are travelling with. The hospital at America will delegate someone or persons to pick you up at the arrival hall when you step out of the airport.

Akua Yankey:

So my love you mean even if I see someone in a distressed manner I shouldn’t bother to go near the person?

Opana:

That is exactly what I told you my wife, some people fell victims to the scenarios I gave and they are still serving their jail sentence because they couldn’t defend themselves well when they were found wanting.

Also don’t forget to get cardigans for yourself and that of our daughter because I learnt the weather out there isn’t friendly and people of your type who are down with rheumatism are going to find it a bit difficult to cope with the cold weather. Also take the advantage and speak with the doctors out there to help you with their medication since they have powerful and potent drugs over there.

Akua Yankey:

Today dier I’m going through some aviation and bilateral lessons from my almighty super fantabulous gangster husband. Please teach my darling husband.

Opana:

Herh are these words of flattery or you are making fun of me? If you do that I will stop right now.

Akua Yankey:

Oh sweetheart how can I make fun of you when you are teaching me something that I don’t know? Am only enjoying the lessons since am a greenhorn here, I have never travelled through the airport or with a plane before so what you are doing is only in my favour and for this, tonight, you know am going to be rough with you in the bedroom.

Opana:

Hehehe wait oooo, is that a threat, warning, caution or advice? If you know my plans for you also like you will be asking for mercy right about now. You are leaving me here for almost a month and you expect me to let you go free this evening huh, a Ga man will say “obaa na”, you will see the new me and the stuff I’m made of.

Akua Yankey:

You know am a Fanti woman and such things or words don’t scare me at all. Bring all the arsenals you have in your armoury because am having an antidote for you that will make you plead for mercy tonight.

Opana:

All the same when we get to the battlefield we shall see the winner. What time did the doctor say he will discharge our daughter tomorrow because we have to travel a very long way to the city.

Akua Yankey:

He said she will be discharged early tomorrow morning but she will be kept at the hospital and later in the day, he will let the hospital ambulance drop us at the airport.

Opana:

Well, I don’t like the idea of us travelling to the city in an ambulance but I guess we don’t have a choice. Also, did he say anything about your travelling documents?

Akua Yankey:

He said it is ready and that we shouldn’t worry about anything because everything is in place ranging from hotel reservation, hospital bills and the team of doctors to operate on her.

Opana:

Ah, what resounding news my dear, am happy that the doctor has kept to his word. With this, I promise to give him a coffin for free if he dies or loses any of his close family members.

Akua Yankey:

Ah, my love, do you have to say a thing like that? Can’t you give him anything else apart from a coffin?

Opana:

Akua, don’t spoil my mood this very moment, does anyone work at Ecobank and receive his salary from Zenith bank? I do and sell coffin so that is one thing I can give freely without going to buy it and you know how expensive my coffins are. You know what, get up and let’s go into the bedroom because we have an agenda at hand to work upon.

Back at the Hotel waiting area:

Michael Ansah:

Sorry, for the delay guys, you know women and how they are slow with things. Over here in my hand is the bag which was exchanged with my wife’s bag, please apologise on our behalf when the owner comes for it and please take this small token to be fuel into your car.

Leader:

Thank you very much sir but we can’t accept the money you are giving us, it will look like we are taking or accepting a bribe for the service we provided.

Michael Ansah:

Oh don’t be silly gentleman, who is talking about bribe here, I and my better half find it amazing to reward nice people like you with something small. Refusing to accept this small token will be like rejecting our friendship and moreover, we are the people giving it out to you because you didn’t ask for it so no one can term it as taking a bribe, please my wife will feel offended if you don’t accept this money.

Leader:

Mmmmm I guess with your explanation I have nothing more to say, please inform your wife that I and my colleagues are grateful for her generosity towards us.

Michael Ansah:

I will convey your message to her, we will pay you a surprise visit to your office very soon. Drive safely to your office and have a great evening.

All men gave a chorus answer and left the hotel to their office. Meanwhile, Julia is also in her suite planning something……….

What could that thing be?
