There was a knock on the living-room door.
Nana Akua did not bother to respond.
Samba walked in.
“Good day, Princess,”
There was no response.
He walked over and sat beside her.
“I know you gave instructions you didn’t want to see anyone, but I was worried. You look awful, what is the problem now?” Samba asked.
“Why don’t you just get the hell out of here? I don’t want to see you or anyone. I want to be alone. Can’t you understand that?” Nana Ekua spoke with obvious irritation.
“Well, I didn’t come here to fight. I was worried when you didn’t show up for work so I came to check on you. You’d have done the same for me, wouldn’t you? From what I have seen you are very sick and I doubt if doctors would be able to help you. I know someone who can help you though. I’m going to stop over at his place on my way home and give him my piece mind. I hate to see you like this.” Samba said with deep emotions underlying his voice.
“Who are you talking about? I don’t need anybody’s help.” Nana Ekua said.
“Oh, yes you do. There is only one person who can make you that upset and unhappy and I think it would only be right if I had a chat with him and tell him just how stupid he is throwing away a jewel like you.”
“You will do no such thing. I don’t need a mediator,” Nana Ekua said rudely.
“Someone is being very rude today. And God, what did I do wrong?” Samba said downheartedly.
“Look, I am not good company right now. I didn’t mean to be rude,” Nana Ekua said calmly.
“It’s just that I have too much on my mind.”
“You can confide in me, you know. You know that sharing problem bring some amount of relief. Share your problems with me, please.” Samba offered.
“No, not today. It hurts too much,” Nana Ekua said, shaking her head.
“Have you been to the hospital? Because if you haven’t, I think you should.”
“I know you mean well but I really am not in the mood for talking.”
“Oh, are you saying you are so burnt that you can’t be nice to people who care about you? I thought I was a friend.” Samba said, very hurt.
“Samba, I didn’t mean to offend you. You are my friend and I thank God I have a friend like you…”
“Then don’t cut me out. You can tell me anything,”
“Okay, I went to the hospital,” Nana Ekua said when she saw that her friend wasn’t going to leave that easily.
“So, what did the doctor say was wrong with you?” Samba asked.
“They ran some tests. I didn’t go for the results.”
“May I know why you didn’t go back?”
“You just want to be a pain today, don’t you? ”
“You bet I do. So, tell me why you didn’t find out from your doctor what was wrong with you?”
“I don’t have to explain anything to you. Roselyn must have the results by now. If I were that sick she would have called. I am even angry at her attitude towards me today. To tell you the truth I care less about anything in this world. I think it will be lots better if I just die.”
“Oh please, don’t talk like that. We need you alive. We need people like you to inspire and motivate us. You can’t give up now. You once told me in my time of despair that I should never give up! I think you should take some of your own advice. Who knows, maybe some guy will come around and sweep you off your feet and you will forget about all the painful memories. Just have faith in the God above,” Samba said.
“You don’t understand. The problem is I can’t love anybody else.”
“Well, if that’s how you feel then don’t give up hope. You and Kobby would be together again,”
Samba said and looked at his watch.
“I hate to leave you in this condition but there are a few ends I need to tie at the workplace. I will come back if you want me to. Just whistle and I will come running,” Samba said and stood up.
“I’m glad that you stopped by. Thanks a billion for checking up on me. I’ll see you tomorrow.” Nana Ekua said and got to her feet.
She walked Samba to his car. Samba planted a friendly kiss on her cheek.
“Take good care of yourself, Iron Lady, and don’t hesitate to call me if you need anything. Goodnight.”
Nana Ekua waited until his car was out of the compound and went back inside.
She walked to the phone and dialled.
She needed to talk to someone.
“Coleman’s residence, hello,”
“Nana Ekua, where have you been? Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten all about us.”
“No Mom, you know better than that. I’ve just been busy that’s all. But I will definitely find time and come for a weekend. I miss all of you so much.”
“Mmm, if you say so. How is your husband?”
“Fine? Is that all you can say. You have not picked my calls in a while. Kobby was here a month ago and he was very miserable. He tried to tell us something but couldn’t. I didn’t want to interfere so I stayed away. I tried to get in touch with you on several occasions but couldn’t. And you tell me your husband is fine after a long pause. What is going on, Ekua?”
“Mom, it’s nothing to worry about. Kobby and I had a little misunderstanding and we are separated at the moment but I’m hoping all that will change very soon,” Nana Ekua said uncomfortably.
“Separated? What are you talking about?” Mrs. Coleman asked, confused.
“Mom, I can’t get into that right now. Like I said, I will find time and come and see you. Send my love to all. I have to go now.”
“Okay, I won’t push it but we deserve some explanations. And if you keep too long in coming as promised don’t be surprised to see me in Accra. Take care, my dearest.”
“I will, Mom,” Nana Ekua said and cut the line.
Nana Ekua sat dejectedly in the sofa and leaned her head on the back of the sofa. She closed her eyes and tears of loneliness, betrayal, and frustration ran down the sides of her eyes. She cried for a long time.
Nana Ekua got up when she was calmer and went into the bedroom.
She slept almost immediately her head touched the pillow.
It was morning.
Nana Ekua struggled out of bed and entered the bathroom.
She came out a while later showered and feeling refreshed.
She was still in a lousy mood from the day before.
Predictably, she cannot seem to get Kobby out of her system.
She got dressed and drove to the hospital.
Nana Ekua sat facing the smiling doctor in total disbelief.
She didn’t know if her ears were playing tricks on her.
“What did you just say?” she asked, confused.
“I think you heard me quite well. What I don’t understand is your reaction to what I just told you. You’ve been waiting to hear this for years and now I don’t know if you are happy or not,” Roselyn said, a little uncertainly.
Nana Ekua was silent for a long while. “Can you please repeat what you said? I can’t tell if I heard you right.”
“I said you are fourteen weeks pregnant,” the doctor said, expecting the usual reaction that came with such news to people who wanted a child so badly. “Would you mind telling me what is wrong with you? I can’t seem to comprehend your behaviour.” Roselyn said when Nana Ekua still showed no enthusiasm.
“I am doomed forever. God, this can’t be happening. How do I prove my innocence in such a condition? God, I am finished,” Nana Ekua said, sadly.
Roselyn, who had been counselling Nana Ekua for years for her inability to conceive, looked at her as if she didn’t know her. She stared at her client and her unusual behaviour troubled her deeply. For a moment she thought the joy that came with the news had affected her psychologically. She stared at the misery-stricken Nana Ekua for a long time not knowing exactly what to do or say to her.
“Well, if you think you don’t want the baby, there are options, you know,” Roselyn said impatiently.
Nana Ekua was very quiet, she slipped into deep thought.
“Yeeees. What did you say?” Nana Ekua asked confused.
“As your doctor and friend, I would want you to confide in me if there is a problem so that we can find ways of solving it. You can’t keep it all bottled up inside. Already your condition is not very conducive for the development of the baby. Your blood level is very low and if you don’t take care you will lose the baby and you may lose your life too. I am beginning to suspect that you’ve been stressed out for a while and that has caused your blood level to drop rapidly. Right now, you and your unborn child are at risk and you are the only one who can help me do my job well,” Dr. Aidoo said.
“I am sorry if I had been a pain but I have a lot on my mind. I want the baby more than anything in this world but the time it chose to show up is the problem. Presently Kobby and I are separated because someone convinced him I was having an affair with another man.
We’ve been separated for about three months. I have been able to come this far because I hoped he would realise that I was innocent and then we can be together again.
But now, with this condition, how do I prove my innocence? How do I convince him it’s his child I am carrying and that I have never been with anyone? He has never believed in DNA tests. Now tell me Roselyn, what do you say about that? Do you want me to jump around with ecstasy about something that would affirm my doom?”
The doctor was silent as she processed the information and sought for a solution to Ekua’s problem.
“I don’t know what to say but I would tell my husband the truth. I can either lose him or win him back. Or I will terminate the pregnancy and fight for my husband and when we are reunited, who knows, I might get pregnant again. Either way, there could be terrible consequences and perhaps regrets. But you are not me, what do you want to do?”
“I want the baby, that goes without saying, but I want my husband too. With the kind of garbage that supposed lover of mine fed him, he is definitely going to be convinced that all he heard was true. I think I know what I can do. In the meantime, please don’t mention any of this to my husband in case I decide not to tell him. I’ll ask leave of you now. Thanks for your patience,” Nana Ekua said as she got to her feet.
“Hey, not so fast madam, let me give you a prescription for your blood situation. And please don’t stress yourself to death. You are to report to my consulting room every Thursday. I want to monitor you till you deliver,” she scribbled on a prescription sheet and handed it to Nana Ekua with a smile.
Nana Ekua took the prescription and stopped over at the pharmacy in the hospital.
She got all that was prescribed for her and she went to her car.
She sat in it for a while taking stock of all that had happened in the consulting room.
And then she drove through the streets of Accra with mixed feelings.
A part of her was very happy that she was finally pregnant with her dear husband’s child. She knew they would have celebrated this day if they had been together.
The other part of her was sad because the prospect of getting back with her husband had been dulled by the same pregnancy.
Deep in her conscious mind, she decided to give her husband all the space he desired and have the baby.
The thought of a fetus growing inside her, a manifestation of her love for her Kobby and his love for her filled her with great joy and even hope. Yes, hope. She knew one day they would all be reunited because she knew she could never love another man and she was positive her husband felt the same. Right now, she was going to devote her time and energy to becoming a loving and caring mother.
She was going to be the best mom the world ever saw.
