MANSA Episode 2
Written by Elton Nana Amoah
From her view, it appeared that they were kissing.
She then got very furious and waited for her at the living room.
Mansa and Elvis departed ways after they exchanged hugs in a friendly gesture.
She then quickly headed to the living room only to see her foster Mum sitting on the sofa with an angry look.
Mansa : ” Good evening Mum”
Mrs. Amposah: “So has it gotten to this? You have the guts to let him drive you to my house!!!!
Mansa: ” Mum, he only came to drop me off since it was getting late.”
Mrs. Amposah: “oh i see, since when did Elvis start driving you home? wasn’t that the responsibility of Chris?
Mansa: ” Mum, yes it is. I have been trying to reach him but his phone was off…..……
Just as she was trying to explain herself Chris arrived from no where.
Chris: ” whose phone was off? liar!! Mum, i have been waiting for her at the church premises for over an hour only to later realise she had gone out with her so called friend”
Mansa: “Chris, i did call you several times but…..”
Mrs. Amposah: “Will you shut up!!!! Now, this should be your last warning. I don’t want to see you anywhere with that guy or you will see the other side of me. let me remind you of the place you are in this family, don’t forget where you came from.
Mansa: “Mum, am sorry” she said and began to sob.
Mrs. Amposah: “Hey Hey, what did i just tell you? And stop all these “mum, Mum” thing you are doing. Chris and Kuu are my sons and as far as am concerned, i never carried you in my womb for 9 months. Get out of my sight before i loose my temper.
Mansa ran into her room with tears in her eyes.
“Can you imagine, i need to discipline this girl before she brings shame to this family” Said Mrs. Amposah to Chris, his son.
Mansa lied on her bed and kept crying all through the night. The only thing she could think of was to pray to God. Somehow she felt that she had done nothing wrong to make her foster mother so angry. The most hurtful thing was when she reminded her that she is an orphan.
Ever since she was born, she had never set her eyes on her biological parents. Whether they are alive or not she had no idea. The only people she knew was Elvis and the rest of the orphans back in the orphanage home.
Ever since she was adapted by the Amposah family, she took them as her own family and was fitting in it perfectly until Rev. Amposah passed away.
When this sudden incident occurred, it seemed that Mrs. Amposah looked ready for it. It’s as if she was expecting her husband to die.
As much as she looked sad, she never shed a drop of tear on her husband’s death. The atmosphere of rumour among church members was that God had spiritually comforted her.
Mansa heard a knock at her door as soon as she began to pray. It was Kuu.
“Hey Kuu, come in” said Mansa when she went and opened the door.
“I heard Mum from my room yelling at you. what was the problem?” Kuu asked as he sat near his foster sister on her bed.
“Kuu, i really don’t know. Elvis my friend came to drop me home but Mum didn’t like the idea. She even said i should keep my distance from him. But how can i, Elvis is like a brother to me. We grew up together and know each other well.” Mansa said.
“You know how difficult Mum can be but i will talk to her. Just gave her some time, am sure she will come around” Kuu advised.
“Thank you so much brother, you have been so helpful” Mansa said, showing gratitude.
“By the way, you should be checking up on Elvis to find out if he has gotten home rather than thanking me” Kuu suggested.
“You’re right, let me call him” Mansa said, reaching out to her phone.
She tried calling several times but no one was answering. It was until the sixth attempt that the phone was answered.
To her surprise, it was a lady who answered her phone call.
“Hello, can i please speak to Elvis” Mansa asked.
“Madam, the owner of this phone just had a terrible accident and he is in a critical condition at the moment” The lady said.
“Oh my God!!! madam, please where is he right now? how is he?” Mansa panicked and asked.
“We are at the General Hospital but as to how he is faring, i don’t really know. He has been attended to at the moment in ER” said the lady.
“Am coming over right away” Mansa said and hanged up.
