FLASHBACK: JAMES NARRATION
LOCATION: THE OBENG’S RESIDENCE
The house is empty! James alone is in the house! He has been working all day! The work is too much. It’s above standard for him. He can feel his bones are weak! He needs rest but he dares not rest until he finishes with his chores!
His mind is made up! He is ready to run away from home! But He has no money to take along.
He is done with his work! He takes his bath and packs some few things in his bag! Gently he sneaks into his uncle’s room, opens his drawer and finds some bundles of money in it!
With tears in his eyes, he takes a fifty cedis note and leaves the rest in it!
He takes a paper and a pen from his uncle’s study table and writes something on it! He goes back to his room, takes his bag and leaves!
When he gets to the hall, he drops the paper in his hands on the centre table! On the paper is a little note he has written to the OBENG’S FAMILY.

” DEAR GUARDIANS,
I AM VERY GRATEFUL FOR THE LOVE, CARE AND ATTENTION YOU HAVE GIVEN ME. MY ONE AND HALF YEARS I HAVE SPENT WITH YOU IS REALLY AMAZING FOR ME! THE HAPPINESS, LOVE, CARE, SORROWS, PAINS AND EVERYTHING WE SHARED IS BUT LOVELY! BUT I HAVE TO LEAVE AND LIVE ON MY OWN. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT AWAITS ME ON THE STREETS, BUT I PRAY IT ALL WILL GO WELL. MAY THE PEACE AND LOVE OF GOD BE WITH YOU ALL.
The note is short but the words in it break his heart! Quickly, he rushes to the door and moves into the compound! And when he is out, he looks back at the building that has covered him for one and a half years, his body shakes!
It dawns on him that he will soon be sleeping on the streets! But that does not stop him from running! He approaches the main gates! And when he gets out, he sees his uncle’s wife car approaching.
Quickly, he rushes and hides at the side of the wall. The car drives through the remote-control gates! He can hear the car engines go off and hear his uncle’s wife shout his name!
But that does not trigger him! He runs with the little strength in him. But He does not know where he is going and does not know what he will face!
LOCATION: KYLE TV STUDIO B
JAMES head is down and his body is shaking! The pains are too much! His heart is broken!
LAWRENCE AKUTEY is shocked! He just cannot understand why some people can be so cruel! He wipes the tears in his eyes!
Then he signals to the cameraman and now his face appears on the screen!
We humans can be so cruel at times! Just imagine friends! Just imagine! What at all do we want again from this world huh? Fame? Money? What? Name it! Sometimes we should just feel the pains they feel and help them. It’s just not easy! Jay here is my hero! A role model every young men and woman out there should take! He…
Someone screams from the audience! And it is a man! He is crying really hard! The others around try to console him and tell him to conduct himself!
But he does not listen! He stands and descends the stairs!
The security personnel stands in his way, blocking him from climbing where James and Lawrence sit! But He pushes him away! He is an old man! He is OBENG ATOBRAH, JAMES’S UNCLE!
And he wants to seize the moment and apologize for the pains and suffering he has made James go through!
As he climbs the podium, two security men hold his hands, restraining him from going forward!
He cries and shouts JAMES name!

OH JAMES! JAMES! JAMES! MY SON! I HAVE DONE YOU WRONG! FORGIVE ME CHILD AND LET MY SOUL BE AT PEACE! PLEASE…
STACY ADOMA, his granddaughter runs from where they sat crying! She runs to her grandpa’s arms!
The cameras are on them! The people are shocked! So are James and Lawrence! Some of them take their phones and record!
Others are angry because the old man chose to distract them! The people murmur and others rain insults at him!
But he does not care! Does he? Until he gets what he wants he will not take his seat!
OBENG ATOBRAH bends and whispers something to his granddaughter. Suddenly, she looks up and fixes his gaze at JAMES NORTEY!
She moves away from his grandpa and climbs the podium. The security men try to stop but LAWRENCE signals to them to stop!
The cameras are on her and every step she takes is recorded! She walks past LAWRENCE AKUTEY and stands in front of JAMES NORTEY!
She takes another step and hugs JAMES tightly. James hugs her back! James is confused and does not know what he is doing but it seems that the only thing he needs now! A hug!
He takes her on his laps and kisses her on her cheeks! It is such a beautiful thing.
The tears in the little girl’s eyes make him cry too!
And when she speaks her voice trembles and the little microphone on James shirt carries her little soft voice through the speakers!
Her voice breaks the people heart! There are peace, love, and care in her voice!
I know it all Uncle James! I know it all! He is sorry!
