“His name shall be Nana Kwabena Amoah Jr,” Nana Ekua said with joy. “And Samba would be his godfather.”
“I’d be honoured to be your godfather, Junior,” Samba said holding the boy’s little finger.
Doctor Aidoo’s phone chimed. “Hello,”
“Hello Roselyn. This is Kobby. I just came from town and heard your message. I just want to know if I heard correctly, you needed to talk to me about something. What is the matter? Is everything all right with Ekua?” Kobby asked, concerned.
Dr. Aidoo was quiet for a while.
“Excuse me, who is this,” Roselyn asked.
“This is Kobby Amoah. You can’t tell me you’ve forgotten me?” Kobby said, irritated.
“Kobby, it’s been a long time since I last saw or heard from you. How have you been?” Roselyn said at last.
“I am okay. What did you want to talk to me about?” he asked, worried.
“Eem, please hold on, I will be with you soon,” she said, putting the call on hold. She turned to Nana Ekua,
“It’s your husband. What do I tell him?”
“Kobby? What does he want?” she asked, confused.
Roselyn explained everything to her.
“Will you like to talk to him? I’m not very good at lying, you know,” she said in a whisper.
Nana Ekua nodded.
“Okay, hold on for your wife,” Dr. Aidoo said and gave the phone to Nana Ekua.
“Nana Ekua, what are you doing in a hospital?” Kobby asked, very worried.
“Sorry to have bothered you. There was a small domestic accident and I was brought in half conscious. I was told I was calling for you so they thought it wise to contact you. I am truly sorry they bothered you, but I am fine now.” Nana Ekua explained.
“Are you sure you are alright? I am coming over, right now,” he stated frankly.
“No, you don’t have to do that. I am fine, truly, and there is nothing to worry about,” Nana Ekua said convincingly.
“Are you sure you don’t want me there?” Kobby asked.
“I am fine, really. I guess it won’t be necessary for you to come.”
“Okay, if you say so. I want you to know that you can call me anytime if you need anything.” he said rather slowly.
“Okay, I will keep that in mind. I need you, Kobby. I miss us.”
There was silence.
“Kobby, are you there?” Nana Ekua asked.
“Yeah, I am here,” he replied.
“Oh, and I want you to know that I always think of you and that you will forever be my love.” she said hurriedly.
“I have to go, Ekua. I will see you around,” Kobby said and hung up before Nana Ekua could say anything more.
He sank into his sofa and poured himself a drink. He sipped it and looked up at the huge picture hanging on the wall in the living room.
It was his favourite.
It was a picture of him and Nana Ekua kissing on their wedding day. He recalled the vows he made to Nana Ekua that day, and he recalled what he felt when the officiating minister pronounced them man and wife and smiled to himself.
He remembered how it felt when his lips touched hers that day in the church and felt a swell in his third leg.
“God, I love her so much. I love her even more.”
Kobby stood in his office window looking at nothing in particular.
He had been unfocussed since he last spoke to Nana Ekua. He wanted to see her to confirm she was alright. Deliberately, he had called her six times in the last three weeks just to make sure she was okay. Those times brought back cherished memories they had shared. He felt alive every time he called her. Nana Ekua had refreshed his memory on some cool things they did and shared.
He had been tempted every time he called to tell her he was still in love with her. He knew he would always love her.
And he had on those occasions felt the strongest urge to ask her to come back home because he was simply miserable without her.
Kobby had gone to bed every night since the encounter reminiscing on the beautiful magical moments they had shared. Suddenly, his world had come to an end and he wanted to end all the misery and loneliness. He found it very difficult the past three weeks to go home because suddenly the house felt too big and empty for him.
He walked to his desk and sat down. And then he picked up the phone and dialled.
“Hello,” Nana Ekua answered.
“Hi, Nana, how are you?” he asked.
“I’m good. What about you?” Nana Ekua replied.
“I am okay. I wanted to find out if you’ve recovered fully from your domestic accident. You didn’t tell me exactly what happened, you know,” he explained.
“It was just a minor thing. I tripped on something when I was climbing the stairs to the house and fell unconscious. But I am okay now. When you see me you wouldn’t even think something like that ever happened. I am fit like a fiddle. Thanks anyway for caring. I really appreciate it when you check on me every now and then. It kind of gives me hope that I’m not forgotten.”
“That’s alright. I don’t know why I have this feeling that there is something you are not telling me. I am almost sure there is something you are keeping from me. There must be a very good reason for keeping …”
“Hey, do you remember the day I fell trying to bring down the suitcase on top of the wardrobe?” she asked, changing the subject.
“How can I ever forget? I thought I had lost you when you just wouldn’t move. I was sick with worry. And when I leaned over to check if you were still breathing you surprised me with a warm long kiss,” Kobby answered.
“I remember the day you pretended to be dead. I was so confused I didn’t know what to do. And I shook you several times but you didn’t move or stare. I rushed to the hall to call Dr. Anderson. I was so worried I didn’t hear you come up behind me. You took the phone and spun me around with the speed of lightening and kissed me passionately. We ended up making love in the sofa.”
“I think you saw I was really scared to lose you, right?”
“Yes, I did. And I promised never to pull that silly prank again,” Kobby affirmed.
“I loved you then Kobby, and I love you even more now. I want you to know that I haven’t been with any man since I met you and I never would be. You are the only one for me.” Nana Ekua said.
Kobby was silent for a while.
“Any way, how is work?” Nana Ekua changed the subject.
“Tiring as usual but I am managing quiet well,” he answered.
“Least I forget, what became of your final exams?” she asked.
“Oh, I didn’t tell you? I was successful. So, I guess you can now think of me as a Chartered Banker or something like that,” he said with pride in his voice.
“Oh, this is wonderful. Congratulations, my dear!” Ekua said happily.
“Thank you,” Kobby replied.
“I am happy for you. Is there any chance I can convince you to have lunch with me to celebrate this good news?” Nana Ekua asked.
“Yeah, I guess so, but not today. I will get in touch when I am free,” he explained politely.
“Okay. I will take a rain cheque on that. Never forget that I love you,” Nana Ekua added swiftly.
“I have to go now, I’ll get in touch,” Kobby said hurriedly and hung up.
He walked back to the window and continued to stare into oblivion.
“Could it be that I have been wrong all this while? Could it be that Nana Ekua had never been unfaithful? Dear Lord, could it be a set up like she always mentions?” Kobby asked himself.
He had expected Ekua to come clean with him. He was aware that will kill him but he also knew he would forgive her. All he wanted was for her to admit to her wrong and then maybe they can move on from there.
The door to his office opened and Tonita walked in.
“Hi handsome, don’t I get a kiss?” she said coming to a stop when Kobby did not make any effort to welcome her.
“Hi Tonita. You are welcome,” he said and gave her a brief peck on the left cheek.
She grabbed him and tried to kiss him on the lips.
He pulled away.
“This is an office, for Christ’s sake!” Kobby retorted.
“What’s with you? You’ve been avoiding me. This wouldn’t be the first time we kissed in this office, would it? You didn’t see anything wrong with it then, so why are you giving me that crap now?” Tonita asked, very upset.
“I feel uncomfortable doing such things in the office. Any one might walk in, and it would be embarrassing,” he explained.
“Is it anyone you are worried about or it is your adulterous wife you are thinking about?” she asked.
“I won’t have you call Nana Ekua that. Besides, no court has proved her guilty of unfaithfulness so never let me hear you use that word for her again,” Kobby said furiously.
“Wasn’t that the reason you two separated?” Tonita asked furiously.
“Who told you that?” Kobby asked.
“I know everything. Your sister was kind enough to let me in on everything that happened. I understood why you never wanted to talk about it. Then your holy ex-wife called or made someone leave a message on your answering machine the other day. I saw how you reacted when you heard the message.
I know for a fact that if I had not been around you would have rushed to the hospital immediately. You acted as though I wasn’t even there. Then your whole attitude towards me changed afterwards. If I didn’t know better I would say you don’t want me around you anymore. Tell me one thing though; are you still in love with Ekua?” Tonita rattled on furiously.
“What kind of question is that?” Kobby retorted.
“You can’t even answer the question, can you? Every time she comes up in our conversations you become very defensive. Have you ever loved me?” Tonita asked sadly.
“What has come over you? I wouldn’t be with you if I didn’t feel something for you, would I? Don’t let us start an argument over this. I don’t think you came all the way here to discuss my ex-wife.”
“Ex-wife, huh? Is she your ex-wife? And what court granted you the divorce! You’ve not been man enough to even ask for a divorce and you are using ex-wife to describe her, God, you are something else,” Tonita stated.
“Did you come here to quarrel? You seem to be in a foul mood today. How can you sit there and ask me those silly questions anyway? Am I not living up to my role as the man in your life? Is there something I’m missing? What is it that you lack? Tell me and I will make sure you have it in a twinkle of an eye,” Kobby uttered angrily.
“Money is not everything, you know. I need love. I need to be treated as a woman. Above all, I need to be appreciated and cherished. I need children. I …”
“Are you tired of me already? Are you looking for an excuse to leave? Is that why you are behaving like this? If you want out of this relationship you can just say so without going to all that trouble of making me feel responsible for your actions. I will understand. After all, I am a lousy lover, aren’t I? I guess that is my destiny. I never seem to please the women in my life,” Kobby said sadly and sat down.
Tonita walked over to him and wound her arms around his neck.
The door to the office opened and Sylvester, Kobby’s friend and colleague, entered.
“Sorry, I didn’t know you had company,” he elucidated.
“Come right in, Sly,” Kobby whispered, pushing Tonita’s arms off his shoulders.
Sylvester walked to him awkwardly.
“I came across these documents and I thought you would want to take a look,” he said hurriedly, handing Kobby the documents.
Kobby got up and examined the documents. He patted his friend on the shoulder.
“You are a life saver, Sly. I’ve been looking for this for ages now. Thanks to you I can finally finish that report.” he said happily.
“Hey, don’t thank me. Thank my hardworking Secretary who found it. Don’t forget our appointment later on in the day,” he said and walked out of the door, shutting it behind him.
Kobby walked to the window again and looked out for a while in deep thought.
He could not shake Nana Ekua off his thoughts. He felt the strongest urge to put aside his bruised ego and go to her. The more he tried to forget her, the more he loved her.
Tonita walked over to him and wound her tiny arms around his waist sensing his troubled state.
“Kobby, I know you are still hurting but I love you. I love you more than it’s possible to love anyone. At the moment, I feel helpless and hopeless when I’m not with you. But sometimes I get this feeling that you don’t love me like a man is supposed to love a woman. I get the feeling this relationship has no future and I am worried. Much as I love you, I want you to love me too. I just want to feel that I belong to you. That’s why I do the things I do. I want to know exactly what you feel for me,” Tonita explained.
“Is it not enough that I’m with you? Does that not give you the faintest idea that you mean something to me? What more do you want from me, Tonita?” Kobby said, confused.
“I want you to love me. I want you to take me places. Oh, I want the whole world to know I’m your woman. I want you to make love to me. I want to be your wife. Kobby, I want to have your kids. Is that too much to ask?” Tonita explained.
“Women, one will never understand them. One moment you want this, the next moment you want that and the very next moment it’s something else. Were you not the same person who suggested that we don’t get intimate? And were you not the same person who gave one excuse after another when I invited you out with my friends?
Were you not the same person who just said I was married? You want us to get married now? Isn’t that too soon? I barely know you, Tonita. Don’t you think we need a little more time to really get to know each other better? What has made you this way?” Kobby asked, frustrated.
“Yes, it’s true I asked all that from you but that was because I wasn’t sure of what I felt for you then and I didn’t know what you felt for me either. Now I know I love you. I know I can’t live without you. I know I will be helpless without you. That’s what has changed. That is why I want some recognition and some security. I want to have babies, your babies,” Tonita said, tracing a finger on his earlobe.
“You know something, I don’t think we should go into all that now. Let’s give ourselves a little time. Right now, I’m famished. Let’s go grab a bite,” he said hurriedly and escorted Tonita to his car.
The thought that he might have been wrong about Nana Ekua still haunted him.
And the thought that Tonita wanted to have his child filled him with worry. He had never expected things would come this far. The fact was he didn’t want to have children with her or any one. He was still madly in love with Nana Ekua and could never make love to another woman. That was why it came as a relief when Tonita didn’t want any intimacy.
Somehow, he had to find out the truth. He had to find out if Nana Ekua had done all that they said she did but where could he find the truth? He had asked his mother and sister several times if they had anything to do with the calls he had received and they had vehemently denied any involvement.
“Why does she keep saying she is innocent?” he whispered.
“Did you say something?” Tonita asked, confused.
“No. I was just thinking out loud. Where do you want me to take you, my Princess?” he said hurriedly.
“The usual place,” she said, unimpressed by his explanation.
They ate in silence and right after they were done Kobby asked that they leave using work as an excuse.
They sat in the car for a while in silence.
“I am sorry I have to take you home, I have an appointment with Sly, a business appointment I cannot miss. I hope you understand,” Kobby said.
“That’s okay, but I hope it’s not because of what happened earlier in your office. I know I came on too strong. But you have to understand me. I’m scared you will wake up one day and tell me you are going back to your wife. I just need a little closure and security in this relationship. Sorry if I pushed you too far,” Tonita said calmly.
“No, you don’t have to apologise. I understand you perfectly. I do enjoy your company. I’m just not sure if I want to take that huge step yet especially because of what happened with Nana Ekua. It has not been easy to forget all that happened, ” Kobby explained.
“I think you just gave me the answer to the question I asked earlier. You still love her, don’t you?” Tonita taunted.
Kobby decided not to respond to that enquiry.
He drove as fast as he could to Tonita’s house. He got out as soon as he applied the brakes and rushed to the passenger side to open the door for her, and then he walked her to the door and kissed her briefly on the lips.
“Are you sure you don’t want to come in for a minute?” Tonita asked trying to break the tension between them.
He took a look at his watch and shook his head.
“I don’t want to keep Sly waiting for a long time. I will see you soon,” he managed to say.
“Don’t forget our date tomorrow, handsome,” Tonita said.
“No, I won’t forget. I can’t wait to meet the brother you’ve talked so much about,” he said and hurried off.
