Kobby’s confusion and anger reached an uncontrollable peak.
He took a long look at Nana Ekua and without a word picked up her car keys and rushed outside. He unlocked her car with the remote controller. And then he opened the door and saw her briefcase.
“Oh, my God! What is this? The caller was right.”
“Right about what?” Nana Ekua asked.
Kobby was startled to see her. He had not noticed she had followed him. “The money in your briefcase, Ekua! I take it this is fifty thousand cedis?”
“Yes, that is fifty thousand cedis which I had to pay as ransom for you.”
“Ransom for me? You think I am a fool? Now get out of this house immediately or I will leave.”
“I am not moving an inch. I have done nothing wrong and if you exercise patience I would tell you what really happened.”
“Look, I don’t have to listen to any more of your lies. You think you are very smart, don’t you?” Kobby said and rushed inside. He came out shortly afterwards with a briefcase in his hand. He walked past her without uttering another word.
Nana Ekua went after him. She tried to talk some sense into him but he got into his car and drove away in blind fury and a fit of boiling jealousy.
Nana Ekua went back into the house and sat up all night hoping her dear husband would come home.
She woke up the next morning in the sofa in the living-room and realised that Kobby had still not come back home. She called him on his cell but there was no response. When she called his best friend’s house, he had not seen him.
In the end she had no choice but to call her in-laws and she had the shock of her life when her sister-in-law answered and told her Kobby spent the night with them. She told her he told them everything that had happened. Nana Ekua asked to talk to him but Oforiwaa would not allow it.
“Leave him alone, would you? Don’t you think you’ve hurt him enough? Just leave him alone. If he had listened to us, he wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place. Now have a good day.” Her sister-in-law hung up before she could say anything further.
For a week Kobby didn’t come home. All attempts to get in touch with him failed. Nana Ekua wondered if they had rushed into marriage. She wondered why Kobby could believe all that crap about her and say those things to her. She wondered if she had made the right decision in marrying him.
From the onset she had known he was a bit immature when it came to some things but she loved him anyway. But to ran home to his mother in the midst of a misunderstanding was too much. Nana Ekua felt lost and alone. All these years, she had been able to tolerate all the harsh treatment by her in-laws because Kobby had been on her side, now she was not sure of anything anymore.
Nana Ekua wondered why her love life was such a disaster. She wondered what she had done to merit such suffering and heartache. She could not comprehend why anybody would want to hurt her so much.
A call from Kobby interrupted her thoughts. She answered immediately but was disappointed at what he had to say. He simply asked her not to return to his house that day because he could not live with her anymore.
She was very disturbed the whole day and her mood seriously affected her performance. After work, she went home late to find Kobby in the living-room. After a long talk he still maintained his position that she moved out of the house. He even added that if she did not, he would move out permanently.
She knew how much that house meant to him; it was his inheritance from his father and he had held on to it all his life. She, therefore, had no other option but to leave her matrimonial home.
And now, here she was on the streets of Accra driving to no particular destination. She felt betrayed in the cruellest way. Who was out there hurting her this much? Somehow, she suspected her in-laws were behind the terrible scheming but she needed to prove it. She was so distraught she felt very angry toward Kobby.
She reasoned she should accept her losses and move on, as painful as it was. There was no importance in proving her innocence anymore if the man she loved with all her heart could distrust her so much. There was no need to live with a man who obviously has doubts about her fidelity.
She was sure she wouldn’t have believed anything like that about Kobby because she loved and trusted him so much.
Who was the mystery caller who claimed to be her lover? A thousand and one questions raced through her mind as she drove along. Her whole world had come crashing down before her eyes and fallen right to her feet. She realised she had been driving for hours and that it was very late. She still hadn’t decided where she would spend the night. Predictably, she had rented out her apartment when she moved in with Kobby.
Her parents lived miles away in Kumasi and she didn’t want anybody to know about what had happened anyway.
In all her anguish and pain, she still loved Kobby to bits. She couldn’t imagine life without him. What was she going to do? She checked into a hotel for the night when her legs felt numb from all the hours of driving.
The wind blew with its usual whistling sound, as it threatened to rain. Nana Ekua stepped out into the dark night and looked up into the sky.
The sky was starless and bleak, a true reflection of her life. There had been no light in her life ever since she moved out of her matrimonial home.
She woke up every day hoping that her husband, the man she loved with all her heart, would realise his mistake and come back for her, but that had not happened. She had called him many times and she had always ended up with a broken-heart. It was now three months since she was forced out of her matrimonial home and there was still no sign of a reunification.
She had rented a new apartment eventually, and now here she was, very lonely and depressed. She always went to bed missing her husband’s arms around her while she slept. And she woke up every morning remembering the kiss her husband had always given her when he was getting out of bed. She missed the few minutes they talked before they got out of bed.
She missed their long shower together every morning and night. Nana Ekua missed the time they stayed up talking right into the next morning. She missed him making love to her; she was simply incomplete without him. And most importantly she missed him telling her he loved her.
She stood gazing at the dark night with tears streaming down her cheeks. Suddenly she felt light-headed and leaned against the rails and her mind strayed in deep thought.
The phone in her living room rang. She didn’t want to talk to anyone but Kobby and she knew he wouldn’t call her so she let it ring unanswered.
The last time she had seen Kobby, he was very bitter. Nana Ekua reiterated the fact that she was innocent of all the charges he had levelled against her but he still wouldn’t believe her.
Bitterly, she told him about the call she received that day which suggested that he had been kidnapped. She told him about the fifty thousand cedis the strange man had demanded as ransom.
She told him about the address and the time she was supposed to meet the supposed kidnappers. And she told him she loved him and that she could not love any other man let alone make love to another man but he had just stared at her as if she was the epitome of everything vile.
Nana Ekua could tell he was lonely too. She could tell he was hurting and she tried to take him in her arms to show him how much she still loved him, but he had stopped her with his scathing words.
“I think it is best we didn’t see each other again because the pain becomes too unbearable when we meet. And please don’t call or visit. I am having a difficult time dealing with what happened. I want the wounds you’ve inflicted to heal but I can’t do that if I see you all the time.”
“But you don’t have to deal with any pain, my love. I haven’t done anything. I haven’t been unfaithful to you. Believe me.” Nana Ekua said, trying to convince him as tears of anguish blazed down her cheeks.
“Please, don’t make this harder than it already is. You can file for a divorce so that you can be free to marry whoever you want.” Kobby stated.
Nana Ekua tried to defend herself and state her innocence but his cellular phone beeped and he asked to be excused. After talking for more than thirty minutes on the phone he hung up and left her in a hurry.
The phone in the sitting room continued ringing. She walked leisurely to the phone hoping it would stop by the time she got to it but it didn’t. She picked it up. “Hello,” she said, unenthusiastically.
“Nana Ekua, oh thank God you are alright. I was beginning to think something terrible had happened to you,” the caller said, breathing a sigh of relief.
“Hi, Samba, what do you want from me?” she asked her friend and colleague.
“You sound very depressed. What’s bugging you?” he asked in a concerned tone.
“I’m fine. I was just taking stock of my life,” Nana Ekua answered.
“You are thinking about Kobby, aren’t you?” Samba asked.
“What else can I do? All I want is to be with my husband. Is that too much to ask?” Nana Ekua said, irritated.
“No, that is not even much to ask for. But you have to be strong. You need to be patient. I know it’s painful but I don’t like the way you are breaking apart because of this situation. What happened to the Iron Lady we all knew? What happened to the lady with a heart made of the strongest metal?
I always admired the grace with which you dealt with problems and I am very worried about how you are handling this situation with your husband. You are tough so don’t let this get to you too much. I know you would get back with Kobby when he snaps out of his childishness. Just give him some space for a while then you’ll see that everything will work out just fine. Trust me.” Samba tried to convince his childhood friend.
There was a long silence.
“Are you there, Nana Ekua?” Samba asked.
“You don’t understand, do you? I want my husband back and I want him now!” Nana Ekua said, and her voice trembled with the depths of her emotions.
“Then I suggest you go tell him that. Honestly, I don’t understand why you should allow a man who was heartless enough to ask you to leave his house to ruin your life like this. You’ve changed so much! I hate seeing you falling to pieces. I just wish there was something I could do to help.” Samba said, a little impatiently. “Any way, I called to see if you feel like going out with me tonight but obviously you are not in that kind of mood. I would see you tomorrow,” Samba said and hung up.
Nana Ekua stared at the phone in her hand for a while, and then she replaced the receiver in its cradle. She sank into the sofa and cried her heart out till she fell asleep.
Nana Ekua woke up the next morning with a terrible headache. She called her friend Samba and told him she would be late for work.
Nana Ekua walked into Dr. Roselyn Aidoo’s consulting room with a long face. She explained what had been happening to her for some time to her doctor.
Dr. Aidoo took a long look at her and smiled.
Nana Ekua was puzzled at her doctor’s behaviour. This was so much unlike the doctor she knew. Nana Ekua had known Roselyn for over a decade and knew how she went about her work especially, things relating to her. She, therefore, couldn’t understand why she kept sitting there doing nothing but smiling after she had told her what has been happening to her for a while now.
“Aren’t you going to say anything?” Nana Ekua asked, confused.
“You don’t have to worry about a thing. You are not sick to the best of my knowledge. But for the benefit of a doubt, take this card and go to the laboratory. The laboratory Assistant knows exactly what to do. Just be cooperative, okay?” she said, handing her the card.
Nana Ekua looked at the inscription on the card but found it illegible. She took a long look at her friend and when she gave no explanations, vanished from the consulting room. She walked into the crowded laboratory and took a seat.
The technician took her blood, urine and other samples and dismissed her. He asked her to come for the results in two hours.
Nana Ekua left the hospital and drove straight to Kobby’s office. She met him looking through some documents with a serious expression on his face. She hesitated at the door for a while and cleared her throat,
“Can I come in?”
Kobby looked up and was startled to see her. He stared at her for a long while not knowing whether to ask her in or otherwise. One look at her and he wanted to ran to her. He wanted to take her in his arms and kiss her. God, he’s missed her more than he thought. His heart started beating faster. He wanted her. He wanted to make love to her.
Kobby closed his eyes as if that would stop the feeling.
“Yes, you may,” he said.
Nana Ekua walked in and took a seat. “I was in the neighbourhood and decided I stopped by to say hello,” she said.
“That’s thoughtful of you but…”
“I know you said you didn’t want to see me again but I had to tell you I miss you and I love you very much. I just needed to tell you that.”
The words came as a surprise to Kobby. And he realised he had missed hearing those words from her. He wanted to tell her he missed her too. Most importantly he wanted to tell her he still loves her. For a moment, he thought of asking her to come back home because he was lost without her. Then, the events of the past three months came flashing back to his mind.
He opened his eyes and came face-to-face with the woman he had loved and still loves unconditionally, the woman who had brought all the colours into his life and painted her love all over his heart, the woman who had loved him like nobody has and the woman who had also hurt him.
He looked into the pleading eyes of Nana Ekua and couldn’t stand the look of helplessness he saw in her eyes. Kobby stood up and walked to the window. He ran his trembling hands through his hair to calm them. He put his other hand in his pocket and turned to face the misery-stricken Nana Ekua looking at him.
“It was nice you stopped by but you are making things unbearable for me. Every time I see you I remember what you did and the thought of another man touching and making love to you make me mad. I get so mad I want to kill someone. I don’t want to hurt you, Nana Ekua, so I will please ask you not to see me again. It hurts too much,” Kobby explained.
Nana Ekua’s pain was limitless. Her husband’s words cut through her like a double-edged sword. She opened her mouth to speak but couldn’t find her voice. Tears choked her.
Kobby felt sorry for her and at the same time he was angry with her. “You should have at least thought of me and how I would feel before you cheated on me. And do you know what hurts most? The fact that we were making love every night just to see if we could be lucky and have a child. And all the while you were sleeping with another man? God, you are heartless. How could you do a thing like that to me?” Kobby said, tearfully.
“B-u-t, it’s not true. I did no such thing. I can’t do that to you. Don’t you know that? I love you that much and I can never be unfaithful to you,” Nana Ekua said with tears streaming down her cheeks.
Kobby looked at her with anger in his eyes.
“Look, this is not the place or the time for such talk. I have a meeting in thirty minutes. So if you wouldn’t mind I need to finalize some presentations.”
Nana Ekua got up and amid tears headed for the door.
“I think the less we see of each other, the better it would be for all of us,” Kobby continued, getting to his feet.
Nana Ekua turned to face him. “It hurts to think that now you can’t stand me. I wish there was a way I could prove my innocence. I wish I could just forget about you. Oh, how I wish I could just stop loving you because you don’t even deserve it if you believe a lie like that about me. I want you to know that I am innocent and someday you’d know.
I wonder what you’d do if you find out I have been telling you the truth all this while. And I promise you I won’t come here again. I wish you all the happiness you can get in the world.” Nana Ekua said and walked out of the room, closing the door behind her. She felt dizzy and leaned against the door. She closed her eyes tightly.
Kobby’s secretary, seeing that Nana Ekua had paled walked up to her with concern. “Can I help you, Madam,” she asked.
Nana Ekua opened her eyes and looked into the Secretary’s eyes.
“Are you alright Madam, you look pale,” she asked again.
“Yeh, I’m fine.” I am just a little tired. Thanks for your concern, though.” Nana Ekua said and walked out of the building.
She got into her car and after a while drove off to her home. She switched off her cellular phone, took the handset off the phone in her apartment and gave strict instructions to the security men that she didn’t want to be disturbed.
Then she jumped into bed and cried her heart out till she fell asleep. She woke and realized it was getting dark and felt very hungry.
She went into the kitchen and cooked something to eat. Later, she came to the sitting room with the food and her eyes moistened with tears. She ate about four spoonfuls and felt nauseous so she set it aside.
Nana Ekua turned on the television. She listened absent-mindedly to the talk show that was on TV and went back to eating.
