Alberta got up from the bed and walked to him. She wound her arms around him from behind. Bernard tried to shake her off but she maintained her grip on him.
“I know how that feels, trust me. I know exactly how burnt you are. But don’t worry; I’ll be here to see you through your time of despair. I’ll be here to comfort you. Dearest, I’ll be a shoulder you could cry on. I love you, Bernard Krampah; I love you with all my heart. Maybe there is a God after all. You and me, we …”
“Would you shut the hell up?” Bernard said breaking off from her grip and walking back to the bed.
Alberta followed him. “I know you hate me right now but all that would change when you realise that we are meant to be together. We would be one …”
“Just shut up, would you? I should have known better than get involved with you ever again. All you’ve brought me is pain. And just when I was going to be happy you showed up and messed up everything for me. Don’t talk to me about love because you wouldn’t know if it knocks at your door. You love me indeed!” Bernard snapped at her bitterly.
“Of course, I love you Bernard. All these years of absence and lies had been very difficult for me. I loved you back then, I love you now and I will always love you. I simply can’t imagine you with another woman. We are destined to be together. Can’t you see that?” Alberta said in anguish.
“You love me, huh? Tell me, how come you didn’t stand up for us when your parents tried to separate us? Oh, let me guess, you didn’t because you loved me so much. And when you lied about the abortion, I guess that was also because you loved me. You left without any explanations. You left without a thought as to how I felt and you come back here to preach love? Please, spare me all that bullshit. Go to your parents and your inheritance, after all that was all that mattered to you anyway. Now leave me alone. Get out of my house before I lose it,” Bernard shouted bitterly.
“No, Bernard. Please don’t shut me out of your life. I love you. I always have. We just made love and I know we can be happy. I know that there is still some love in your heart for me otherwise you wouldn’t have made love to me the way you did,” Alberta pressed on.
“That was a big mistake so stop holding on to it. To tell you the truth I felt nothing at all. And get it through your thick head that I would rather f**k spiders than get back with you. Now, get out of my sight. There is a real person who needs me right now. I love someone else and you know it. Nana Ekua is my life so get out of my life and never show your face here again. I’ll call you and we would talk about the boy when I have cleaned up the mess I have created,” Bernard said, getting dressed.
Alberta got dressed amid tears and stormed out of the room.
Bernard gave Nana Ekua some few days to absorb all that had happened and went back to her. They both agreed to give their relationship a second try.
After a year of hopelessness in the relationship they decided to call it off permanently.
Nana Ekua’s life changed after Bernard.
She didn’t court any man and never went on a date with any guy. She never felt like getting close to any man. Although she felt sorry for what happened with Bernard, it was best they ended it. One could not marry out of pity.
She promised herself she would not get involved with any guy until she was very sure she was in love.
She built metal walls around her heart and with that armour she went through life without hitches.
On a personal resolve, she buried all her energy in her work.
Days and months flew by and two years came.
Her parents began to worry about her when Ewura Adjoa, her younger sister, got married.
She directed all her energy into building a fortune for herself and her children, that was, if she ever got that far with any man.
When she realised the pressure was becoming too much she took a vacation to a secluded, quiet beach on the outskirts of Western Ghana.
She fell in love with the resort the moment she saw it.
She felt at home immediately and wished she could stay there for the rest of her life. Surprisingly, she even loved the howling of the wind. And she especially enjoyed the unique crashing sound of the sea waves.
She loved the food, for it was excellent. She loved the coconut milk she got every morning. In fact, everything about the resort was a wonderful experience for her. What impressed her most was how the resort was built. It was so expertly designed, she could just sit in her room and see the sea waves in their beautiful dance. She could also watch the sunset from her room.
One late morning, as she was sun-bathing at the luxurious beach of the resort with her eyes closed, a shadow passed by. A few minutes later the shadow came back. She didn’t stare. She concentrated on the luxurious feeling she felt every time she sun-bathed.
“Good morning, beautiful,” a deep male voice intoned.
“Good morning,” Nana Ekua responded without opening her eyes.
“Would you mind if I sit and chat with you for a while?” the stranger asked.
“Yes I would,” Nana Ekua shot back.
“Why is that?” the stranger asked.
” I don’t know you, that’s why,” she answered.
“Who says you don’t know me. Just open your eyes, you would see that we are best of friends,” he teased.
“I can’t open my eyes because I am in the middle of an exercise. Besides, I know we’ve never met. I feel it in my bones, ” Nana Ekua said.
“Can I at least sit down beside you in the sun till your time is up? Then we would see who is telling the truth,” he said politely.
“Well, if you have nothing better doing, be my guest. But I am always right, you know.”
He walked to her and sat a few inches away from her. He sat so close he could smell the fragrance of her skin.
“Thanks,” he said after getting seated.
Nana Ekua smiled, “Don’t you think you are sitting too close to me. I could just get up and bite you, you know,” she teased.
“I think I would love that very much since that would mean a part of your beautiful body would be touching mine in the process,” the stranger said, smiling.
Nana Ekua smiled again.
“Why are you smiling?” he asked curiously.
Nana Ekua kept smiling.
“What is so funny, lady?” he asked with mock offence.
“You,” Nana Ekua answered.
“Me? What’s so funny about me?” he asked in astonishment.
“Everything. I can see you are very lonely otherwise you wouldn’t be this desperate to talk to someone,” Nana Ekua teased.
The stranger gaped at Nana Ekua in astonishment and broke into a hearty laugh.
“What is amusing you like that?” Nana Ekua asked, surprised.
“I don’t think I have ever come across any one so rude and impolite. Is that how you treat people you meet for the first time?” the stranger asked.
“I thought you said we were best of friends. And point of correction, I have rude and impolite as my middle names so don’t be too surprised by my treatment of you. That’s how I am,” Nana Ekua said.
A long silence ensued after that.
Nana Ekua still had her eyes closed and continued smiling.
“By the way, I am Kobby Amoah,”
“So?” Nana Ekua asked.
“What do you need my name for?” Nana Ekua asked.
“So that I can call you by your name when I see you around,” Kobby answered.
“Let me see. My colleagues call me Iron Lady, my friends call me Nana and my family call me Ekua. But don’t forget my middle names, I have already told you that,”
“That is wonderful. I’ll call you Nana then.”
“Don’t push your luck Mister. I choose my friends with great care. So, for now you will address me as Coleman.”
“Miss or Missus?”
“That’s not important. Just call me Coleman.”
“Okay Coleman, I must confess that I find you very attractive. I have watched you ever since you got here but I have not had the chance to talk to you. And I want to get to know you better, if that’s possible. I stopped by to tell you just one thing; you don’t need those walls you’ve built around you. For one thing, they can’t keep you warm on a cold night. Those walls can’t comfort you when you are troubled; neither can they protect you in any way. I think you should let yourself be loved. Just open up a little bit and you’d realise just how wonderful it is to love and be loved.”
“And who do you think you are to tell me what to do?” Nana Ekua retorted.
“Well, I was unfortunate enough to have fallen in love with you the moment I set eyes on you and as I sit here I am fighting the strong urge to sweep you into my arms and kiss your ruby lips. There are things I want to say to you and things I want to do to you but I have to fight very hard to keep my cool. I care deeply for you and that is why I found it a duty to tell you what I feel,” Kobby said seriously.
“Why?” Nana Ekua said, very shocked. “Have you, by any chance, been reading a lot of romantic bullshits recently?”
“Get real, woman. I find it all very difficult to explain myself but I know I love you. I know you are the one for me. So please don’t insult me. All I want is to have you by my side for eternity. Just allow me to love you. I just want a chance to show the depths of my feelings to you,” Kobby implored.
Nana Ekua opened her eyes in anger to confront the stranger who thought he could just show up from nowhere and shoot her a load of nonsensical crap.
She sat up, turned to face him and was amazed at the sight that met her eyes.
He was not only extremely handsome but also has an air of confidence about him. A man who had all she ever dreamed of in her wildest fantasies.
He was one of the people you met and you’d like to be friends with. He sat smiling at her scrutiny of him.
Nana Ekua realised their lips were just too close and pulled back hurriedly.
She laid back and closed her eyes tightly without saying a word.
“So, what do you say?” Kobby Amoah said, smiling.
“What do I say about what?”
Nana Ekua asked with a lump in her throat.
“Me? Can you at least say you like me?” he asked teasingly.
Nana Ekua smiled and shook her head. “Like you? Why should I? I hardly know you. How can I like or dislike you?”
“Oh, it’s good that you feel that way about me. Most women look at me and they dislike me instantly.”
“Why is that?” Nana Ekua asked.
“Because they say I am too handsome and therefore cannot be trusted. I am glad you are different. At least your indifference towards me gives me some hope. It also tells me you don’t judge people by their looks. That’s refreshing to know.”
“You are right about that,” Nana Ekua said with closed eyes.
There was silence for a while.
Kobby Amoah started humming Kenny Rogers tune, “Crazy for you.”
Nana Ekua sang along with him secretly.
“Are you humming that tune on purpose?”
“Yes, and you know it. I want to tell you that I am crazy for you. Look, I know I’m being too forward but I can’t help it. I guess when one comes across a lifetime treasure like you, one can’t help but be very direct and forward,” Kobby said.
“You have the right to express your feelings but don’t expect anything from me.” Nana Ekua explained.
She opened her eyes and turned to look at the stranger who was gradually breaking down her walls and saw that he was no longer sitting beside her. She looked round and saw him standing at the seashore skipping stones across the surface of the sea.
It occurred to her that he might be hurt and frustrated.
Nana Ekua admitted she had been too hard on the guy so she walked up to him and stood beside him. She picked some sea shells and started throwing them into the sea.
“I don’t think the sea has done anything to merit your anger. You’ll have to forgive me for being too harsh and insensitive. I didn’t mean to be rude. I don’t know how to be civil about these things,” she said calmly.
“You don’t have to apologize. You made yourself very clear. I think I have overstayed my welcome. See you around,” Kobby said and walked away.
Nana Ekua watched him as he walked away. She found to her dismay that she was sad that he was leaving her. She realized she was scared that she might never see him again. Suddenly she felt like going after him but decided against it. And she walked back to pack her things and headed for the comfortable interior of the resort. She walked to her room and took a long warm bath. She changed into some loose clothes and went to the bar hoping to see him there.
Nana Ekua took a seat, facing the sea and ordered a drink. She was watching the sea waves undulating with uncanny rhythm when a voice interrupted her.
“Can I join you?” the voice asked.
She turned, hoping it would be Kobby, but a middle-aged pot-bellied man stood smiling down at her. Her initial thought was to send him packing but she felt a bit lonely and bored at the moment so she answered in the affirmative.
The man took a seat beside her.
“Don’t tell me a beautiful lady like you is here all by herself?” he said with an annoying grin on his face.
“No, I am not. Actually, I am here with my husband. He’s gone downtown to get some things,” she answered, fighting down the anger that stirred up within her.
Shortly afterwards, after some light conversation with him, Nana Ekua asked to be excused and got up.
“But you’ve not even touched your drink,” the man said.
“I have suddenly lost my appetite for a drink. So please excuse me.” she said furiously and walked away.
She felt like lying down. She walked briskly to her room and threw herself on the bed, feeling disappointed and angry.
And she laid there for a while but felt restless. Thoughts of her encounter with Kobby had affected her that much. She didn’t understand why one person could affect her so much. Every time she closed her eyes she saw him smiling down at her. She needed to see him again even if it was just to listen to his voice but she has no idea how to find him.
She thought of asking one of the waiters in the bar. Nana Ekua got up to leave and remembered Kobby saying something that he was her next-door neighbour. She got out of the bed immediately and opened her door. She found to her dismay that her room was in the middle of two other rooms.
And she didn’t know which one accommodated Kobby, the stranger who had impressed her so much.
She walked to the room on her right and knocked on it. After what seemed like an eternity an angry man opened the door and yelled at her,
“What do you want, you fool?”
“Sorry! I think I’ve missed my way. Sorry to have bothered you,” Nana Ekua explained.
“Nonsense,” the angry man said and slammed the door in her face.
She stood for a while staring at the closed door and turned away, muttering a thousand and one damnations against Kobby Amoah.
She unlocked her door and was about to step in when the door to the other room opened and Kobby’s head popped out.
