Prince’s fury was at the penultimate.
He maneuvered his BMW out of his compound in frenzy.
The drive to his parents’ residence took longer than anticipated.
There was a huge truck that had broken down right in the middle of the road obstructing traffic flow.
He spent close to one hour in traffic.
He saw it as God’s way of calming his raging nerves but that did not help much.
Really, he just could not understand why his own mother would be against his happiness.
Prince could not quite get his mother’s obsession with Mabel.
He drove through the gates of his parents’ house like a mad man.
Prince was down as soon as the engine was off.
He stormed into the house, shouting for his mom.
“Mom? Mom, where are you?”
Leah emerged from the kitchen shocked by Prince’s attitude.
She had not seen him that angry ever.
“Why are you shouting like that? What could have gone wrong?”
“You know what had gone wrong so stop pretending. Why on earth would you betray your own flesh and blood like this?”
“Betray you, what did I do?”
Prince clenched his fists tightly to calm down.
He did not want to lose his cool but his mom was pushing him too far.
“Mom stop pretending with me. Why in God’s sweet name would you give Mabel access to my house? Why did you do that?”
“Oh, is that why you have gone raven mad? She is a decent woman and it’s people like her you should mingle with not that …”
“Save your opinions about Maya to yourself. I’m not interested in whatever names you want to call her. If you can’t see beyond your nose that’s your problem. Let me say it here and now, this should be the last time you try to play ball with my life. Whatever Mabel and I shared is dead and buried. You see her as a saint. Why, is it because she is a medical doctor?
There were things I kept to myself because she is the mother of my child. She is worse than those who stand by the road side and sell their bodies for money. If you interfere again, I would have to take very drastic measures. Whiles we are at it, tell her it is in her best interest to sign those documents she conveniently left unsigned.
I’m sure you know something about that, don’t you? You are my mother. My happiness should be your primary concern. I have found that in Maya, it’s about time you shelved whatever insecurities or misgivings you have against her. She is the woman I love and you would always be my mom. No one would ever take your place.”
“But you don’t know her that much. You don’t know what she’d done in her life. I’m worried for you.”
Prince sighed heavily.
“Tell me something, mom? When you met Dad, did you know all about him? Everything?”
“That was different. He came from a good home. You don’t understand.”
“How different, Mom? You didn’t know anything about him but you took a chance, right? You took a leap of faith. This is my time to take that chance. It’s normal to worry about my well being but the way you are going, it’s like an obsession. I love that woman and if you ever loved me, you will not try to separate us.”
Prince’s father and the kids walked in from town then.
Prince picked his kids and left without another word.
His father knew they had walked in on something heavy and he was proud of his son for standing up to his mother.
Not many men would fight for love the way his son was doing.
That night after dinner just before he retired to bed, Prince’s lawyer called that Mabel had appended her signature to the document and all they had to do was present it for the Certificate of Divorce to be issued.
THREE MONTHS LATER
Prince, Maya, her uncle and kids made the trip to their hometown.
Maya was worried she would be rejected but Prince encouraged her to stay positive.
He told her there was nothing to reject about her.
She looked exactly like her father and there were other things that could be used to convince them.
Maya uncovered a historic photo album when she was cleaning her mother’s garage when they went to Sekondi.
The album had pictures of Maya’s parents and Uncle Fii at various stages of life.
Maya was both nervous and thrilled when she got there.
Thrilled that finally she could put a name to where she originated from.
Nervous because her family might reject her.
They manoeuvred through the town with the detailed directions her father had put on paper.
They stopped at her mother’s family first. It was a compound house of sorts. Most of the people in the house were outside in the open doing one thing or the other. Maya really felt lost as she looked at the strangers even though they were family.
All eyes turned on them when they stood gazing around in confusion.
Uncle Fii greeted an old lady seated in the middle of the compound and asked to see Maya’s grandmother.
The old lady was just staring at Maya in shock, as if she had seen a ghost.
The woman started speaking in their local dialect and gesturing. Little Maya was scared now. She wrapped her tiny fingers around Junior’s.
All the people stopped what they were doing and just staired.
The old lady was crying now.
A middle aged man came to them and explained that the old lady was Maya’s grandma, the one the had asked to see. He said she had recognized the long lost Prince of the village in Maya and somehow she knew she was family.
The man organized some seating for the visitors and went around to call other elderly people to join them.
After hearing them there was a mixture of happiness and sadness.
Uncle Fii’s mom was overjoyed to see her son well and alive.
The surgery had worked and Uncle Fii was on his feet again.
The sheer joy on their faces made Maya’s day.
At first, they were a bit sad when they learnt their daughter had passed.
Her grandmother embraced her while she shed tears for her daughter.
She was relieved she left behind a daughter which sufficed as a replacement for them.
Her grandmother and grandfather were so happy they both had tears in their eyes when they hugged her.
Maya met her Uncles and Aunties for the first time.
The visit to her father’s family was a little cumbersome.
Maya had no idea going to see a king in the village was such a big deal.
Thankfully, her grandparents had been there together with some elders to see them through.
They had to learn the ethics of seeing a king for the first time.
There were processes and courtesies they had to follow.
Eventually, the King had given them audience.
Even then, they were not supposed to address him directly.
They had to speak to him through the linguist which was all very new to the group from the city..
The bottom line was she was accepted and hugged and kissed like a true royal, and their show of love overwhelmed her, and tears of unbridled joy drowned her.
Maya was happy to meet her famous great grandmother. The one who gave her father the gold bars.
She was so happy she told Maya now her work was done on earth and she would die a happy woman.
Maya finally felt at ease.
She felt all the pieces of her life had finally fallen into place. Their wedding was set two weeks away and she had found her people. The King and his wife, her paternal grandparents had blamed themselves for what happened to their son for so long they were overjoyed to learn that he made something of his life.
They were so relieved by the turn of events.
A grand durbar was held the following day to introduce the Princess to the whole village.
There was dancing and merrymaking deep into the night.
When they finally retired to bed in their separate rooms, Prince and Maya knew this was the beginning of a lifetime of happiness for them as a couple.
