Samba sat in his office and felt very lonely.
It had been two months since he saw her in the restaurant.
He fought the urge to call her.
He missed having Nana Ekua around too. Truth was, he wanted so much to see Renee again but her attitude toward him that day made him decide otherwise.
Samba wondered if her attitude was because there was someone in her life or she was simply not interested in him.
When he confided in Nana Ekua, she had advised him to go and find out and possibly fight for her love. Nana Ekua told him most women acted that way out of ignorance or because they had been burnt by love and wanted to safeguard their hearts. He got up and walked outside. He looked at the blazing sun and felt for a bottle of chilled beer. And then he walked to the fridge in the office and found to his dismay that it was empty. He walked out of the office and saw Joycelyn behind her desk busily designing some presentations.
“You work too hard Joycelyn. Come on, let me buy you a drink,” he said.
Joycelyn sat staring at her boss without knowing whether to accept the invitation or not.
“Put off the damn machine and let me give you a nice treat. You’ve earned it,” he said and walked out of the office to his car and waited for her.
Joycelyn joined him shortly afterwards. He took her to Shinnel’s since it was the closest to the office and pulled out a chair for her, and when she was seated Samba signalled for a waiter and he came immediately with the menu. They placed their order and waited in silence. Some few minutes later their food was served.
Samba realised he knew very little about his P.A.
“Joycelyn, what do you do when you are not seated in a meeting taking important notes or behind a computer, or putting things in order in the office?” he asked.
“I mostly go dancing or visit the very few friends I have,” she answered.
“That’s interesting,” Samba raised his eyes to see those who had just walked in and came eye to eye with Renee. His initial thought was to run to her but declined. He pretended not to have seen them.
Renee and her best friend, Alby, walked to a table and took their seats.
Alby snapped for the waiter. One look at her and you could tell she was very rude.
Samba turned his attention to Joycelyn who had noticed the change in his boss. They ate the rest of the meal in silence.
Renee talked at length about the man she had fallen in love with.
Alby, on the other hand, was very bored with the guy seated two tables away from them with another woman and pretending not to have seen them.
“Are you sure that guy is the one you’ve been talking about?” Alby asked.
“He is the same one. Isn’t he cute?” Renee responded.
“Cute he is. In fact, he is a catch. What baffles me is his attitude. I don’t take that nonsense from any man, cute or otherwise,” Alby replied.
“And I was very unfriendly to him the first time we met. I don’t think he’s seen me. Maybe I should go over and say hello,” Renee suggested, getting to her feet.
“You would do no such thing. Bones don’t go chasing dogs. It is the other way round, lady,” Alby said, restraining her friend from leaving the table.
“Who is talking about bones and dogs? I am in love and that is all I care about. What is wrong with saying hello to a friend? Have you forgotten we’ve been coming to this place the past month just to see if we would chance on him? We are privileged to have him here today and you want me to let him go just like that?” Renee said angrily.
“There is nothing to get so worked up about. The guy hasn’t left yet. Just sit down and enjoy your meal. He’ll come around, trust me,” Alby said taking a bite of the juicy chicken.
Renee kept glancing at Samba from the corner of her eyes.
Renee saw Samba and the lady get to their feet and she got up. She walked over to them.
“Hi, Samba,” she said. “It’s been a while since our first encounter.”
“Oh, hi. Renee, right?”
“Yes. The name is Renee,” she said, disappointed.
“Yes. It’s been a long time indeed. How have you been?” Samba asked politely taking Joycelyn’s hand. He drew her closer and wound his right arm around her waist.
“Fine. Was hoping you would call,” she said.
“You didn’t give me the impression that you wanted me to. To tell you the truth, I didn’t quite get the number. Anyway, it was nice seeing you. I have to run. I have some unfinished business to attend to. This is my card, call me if you can,” Samba said and gave her the complimentary card and left with his secretary.
He took Joycelyn to her house for the first time and apologised for his behaviour at the restaurant.
He got home very late and was about to turn in when the phone rang. It was Renee. They spent a long time talking on the phone.
Eventually they set a date for the following day.
They met as planned and their friendship soared to unbelievable heights from that day.
They had seen movies together. And they had dined a couple of times. They had gone dancing and visited very cozy places and had so much fun.
Samba was sure he had found love in Renee and was time to move on from Nana Ekua.
Renee had been so occupied with getting to know Samba that she had forgotten about her best friend.
Early one Saturday Alby called and was very bitter.
Renee had convinced her of her undying love and the fact that she was irreplaceable in her life.
To make up for lost time and convince her friend she had not forgotten her she told her they planned seeing her that day.
Samba was reluctant to accompany Renee to Alby’s house at such short notice but she convinced him and they drove leisurely to Alby’s place taking the longest route possible.
The gateman ushered them in and the two were greeted at the door to the house by Alby.
“It sure took you a long time for you two to get here,” Alby remarked and opened the huge gates for them when they finally arrived.
“What are you insinuating,” Renee said, smiling.
“Nothing. I was just curious. Come right in,” Alby said and led the way to the living room. Alby welcomed them again and served them with drinks. She poured a glassful for herself and took a seat.
“Alby, this is Samba,” Renee said.
“Yes, I know. We met him at the restaurant the other day, remember?” Alby paused, “And I am Alberta Aikins. You can call me Alby,”
“Pleased to meet you, Alby,” Samba said, shaking hands with her.
Samba did not like the way Alby looked at him. He felt uncomfortable but had no choice than be polite. He could tell Alby was trouble and didn’t understand how Renee had someone like that for a friend.
After sharing jokes and catching up on events, the girls switched to the gossip channel.
“Renee, guess who I saw this morning on my way from the gym?” Alby said excited.
“Bernard?” Renee said, sipping her drink.
“No, Bernard doesn’t interest me anymore. That good for nothing crook chose the Cassock over me. Just keep guessing,”
“You know I am not good at guessing. Just tell me, would you?” Renee said.
“I saw your bitchy sister-in-law,” Alby revealed.
“What? You don’t mean it. Where did you see that whore of a woman? I hoped she was dead or something,” Renee asked curiously.
“I saw her in her ride just at the junction to the gym. She appears to be growing fat, though” Alby said.
“She can be anything for all I care, as long as she stays away from my brother. My brother is seeing someone else. I’m just waiting to celebrate when he finally reasons up and divorce her. We didn’t work this hard for nothing,” Renee said.
“You must hate her very much.” Samba intoned, a little uncomfortable with Renee’s attitude.
“To say that I hate her is putting it mildly. I loathe that woman. I am waiting for my brother to marry Tonita then I will sit back and laugh and enjoy myself. Oh, I will make sure she never enjoys any peace in her life again.”
“Oh, that’s going too far with it, don’t you think? I thought the plan was to break them up and looking at the way things are it looks like we’ve won. Your brother doesn’t even want to see her,” Alby said.
Renee turned to Alby very excited, “So far, our plan has worked perfectly.”
“I doubt there will ever be complications. No one would ever know,” Alby replied.
“What if that guy talks?” Renee asked.
“Oh, I didn’t tell you? The poor fool was knocked down by a motorbike and he died instantly. So, there would be no surprises. Our secret is safe.”
The two friends broke into a hearty laugh.
“This calls for a celebration,” Renee said and poured herself another drink.
“You girls are having a good time,” Samba said, confused.
“You bet we are,” Alby said. “Really, it’s funny how your brother bought everything. I am glad she’s got a taste of her own medicine. Because of that harlot Bernard decided to be a Catholic priest instead of settling down with his son and me,” Alby continued miserably.
“But for her, I would be a happier person with the man I loved.”
Samba was disoriented.
He had never seen Renee that bitter.
He wondered what her sister-in-law might have dome to make Renee hate her this much.
Samba brushed aside the thought and listened to them with little interest. He was starting to get bored.
His phone rang, and he answered it
“Hi, Iron Lady, how are you and the little one kicking inside you?” he asked stepping outside.
“We are very fine. I hadn’t heard from you in a while so I called to see if everything was all right with you. How is the business doing?” Nana Ekua asked.
“Everything is fine. We miss you at work. I have been very busy lately. I know I have been a bad friend, and I promise I will make it up to you. You see, I have to work extra hard in order not to disappoint you. So please pardon me.”
“Yes, I know you’ve been busy but not with what you want me to believe. I know every detail of what is going on in your life and I understand. Walls talk, you know? I am truly happy for you. Have a nice time.”
“Not so fast, Ekua. Don’t hang up. I want you to know that I care.”
“Thanks. It’s good to know that someone cares after all. I will see you around.”
“Yes, I will be at your place tomorrow. I might bring my love with me.”
“I would be glad to meet her but not when I look this ridiculous. Bring her to see me after the baby.”
“Okay, Iron Lady, take care of yourself and the young one,”
“I will. Take care too,” Nana Ekua responded.
“I will,” he said and went back inside.
The two friends were still talking bitterly about Renee’s sister-in-law.
Samba pitied the woman in question but at the same time he thought she might be very cruel to warrant such hatred from the otherwise caring Renee. He had known Renee for only a short time but could tell she was a good person. He therefore couldn’t fathom what the sister-in-law might have done to merit this.
Whatever it was, he didn’t want to know. But one thing unsettled him greatly. There seemed to be some foul play somewhere. It was no business of his so he kept quiet and reasoned that at the appropriate time Renee would confide in him.
“Samba!” Renee’s voice cut through his thoughts. “I said I was helping Alby in the kitchen. I won’t be long. Let me switch on the TV for you.”
Samba stared at her for a while without a word.
“Since you’d be busy, I have some few things to take care of. I’d like to rush down and deal with them. I will be back before you know I was gone.”
“I don’t know if I like this but if you promise not to keep too long then you may…”
“Really, I won’t keep long, I promise,” Samba said and planted a kiss on Renee’s forehead and walked out of the living room.
He drove to Nana Ekua’s place.
Nana Ekua was very surprised to see him.
“What are you doing here? I didn’t expect to see you today,” Nana Ekua said when she answered the door.
“Does that mean you are not happy to see me?” Samba asked.
“No. I am glad to see you. Come right in.”
“You look huge,” Samba said taking a seat. “How have you been holding up?”
“I am managing quiet well. I have a wonderful house-help. Mansa is very serviceable and I will make her proud one day,” Nana Ekua said, adjusting herself on the seat.
“You look tired though. When are you due?” Samba asked.
“Next month, hopefully,” Nana Ekua said.
“Don’t worry! Everything will be fine,” Samba encouraged.
“I hope so. One can never tell with these things. Only God can tell when this child would come out. I hope it will be soon. I can’t wait to hold him or her in my arms. And I think I am tired of carrying this heavy load around,” Nana Ekua replied.
Samba changed the subject and talked about Renee. He told her everything that had been going down from their first encounter to where things were presently.
“You deserve some happiness, Samba. From what you’ve told me you’ve met the right woman to make you happy. My little advice is not to keep her waiting for too long if she’s Miss Right. Waiting can bring a whole lot of problems,” Nana Ekua said.
“Listen to yourself! What happened to being sure before committing oneself and all that lecture you gave me some time ago? Has the pregnancy softened you that much?” Samba said jokingly.
“They still hold but it applies only when you are not sure of what you feel. I gathered from your speech that you two are meant to be together. I know true love when I see one. So, take my advice, go for the ultimate,” Nana Ekua said, getting up.
She stumbled and fell on her tummy.
She gave out a sharp deafening cry.
Samba rushed to her side immediately.
He tried to lift her off the floor but couldn’t. He managed to get Nana Ekua into a sitting position and called the security guards to help him take her to his car and sped off to the hospital.
