Cindy: Helloooooo my fresh boy Lauren, how are you doing? I have missed you like the way harmattan misses rainfall.
Lovia: Good afternoon Lauren.
Lauren: (looking surprised) Good afternoon pretty ladies, this hot afternoon that you pretty ladies have decided to pay me a visit, I hope I am safe?
Cindy: As the Angel said to Mary when he visited her, “you have been highly favoured son of man”. We came in peace to give you a surprise visit.
Lauren: (smiles) Ah thank you so much sister Cindy and your sister, I have forgotten your name even.
Lovia: My name is Lovia my dear.
Lauren: Ah thank you so much sister Lovia. Please come and sit down over here. (uses his dress to clean the chair he is sitting on)
Lovia: Thank you very much Lauren, you are a real gentleman.
Cindy: So for me you won’t offer me a sit erh, I won’t complain or say anything at all.
Lauren: Oh don’t say that sister Cindy, the chair here is only one but I will make it up to you. Please what should I offer you this hot afternoon?
Cindy: (blinks her eyes to her friend) Lauren my sweetheart, as you can see it is very hot so if I get a yoghurt drink it will calm my nerves down. Hollandia yoghurt drink is what I crave for my sweetheart.
Lauren: What about you, sister Lovia?
Cindy: Oh she prefers custard.
Lovia: (smiles and nods her head) Yes that’s what I prefer my dear Lauren.
Lauren: No problem beautiful ladies, I will search through the fridge and bring the chilled ones for you two.
Cindy: Please add digestive biscuit to mine and for my sister she only likes hobnob biscuit.
Lauren: (returns with the things that were requested) You don’t have a problem, insurance has covered you my ladies. If I may ask, what brought you here now that I have served you something?
Cindy: (opens her drink and biscuit before talking) Lauren baby, you said if I need anything I should notify you?
Lauren: Yes my darling, I said so and that promise still holds.
Cindy: Ahhhh you are so sweet my darling boy, please we are short of provisions and groceries in the house so we came to you to pick up some few things.
Lauren: Oh feel free my dear, you can take anything you want over here.
Cindy: (gets up immediately and takes a basket with her) Lovia please come and help me pick some few things that we need in the house. Lauren dear, you said we can take anything we want erh?
Lauren: Of course my dear, feel free.
Cindy: (smiles) You are a real darling. Lovia you heard the gentleman, let’s be fast before his mother or any of his siblings walks in. This is our only chance so let’s cease the moment and make very good use of the opportunity available.
Hon. Nii Nortey’s Office:
Secretary: Sir please this is the memo you asked me to prepare, also the chairman for the project you inaugurated last week called but you were not in the office by then.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Oh okay, I will call him later as I am going to go through the memo you just brought to see if you haven’t left anything out. Before I forget, I am expecting a lady from one of the media houses called Adoma, when she comes allow her in and I don’t want any disturbances or any visitor because I will be granting her an exclusive interview about the projects the ministry has embarked on.
Secretary: Okay sir but what about the meeting you have with the Teacher’s Association?
Hon. Nii Nortey: Oh that one, tell my aide Mr Oppong to go and represent me. He is aware of everything that has taken place since day one.
Secretary: I will convey the message to him right away sir.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Mmmmm Sandra, tell him to leave right away with my car becauseI don’t want them to be calling me whiles the interview is ongoing. (picks phone to make a call)
Secretary: Very well sir. (walks out of the office)
Hon. Nii Nortey: (on phone) Hello Audrey, it’s almost noon and I haven’t gotten any alert from my bank. Why the delay?
Caller: Sorry for the delay honourable, I wanted to transfer cash into your account but I realised if I do so I will face a little problem back here so I issued a cheque rather to be paid into your account.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Audrey but you know that was not the agreement? Even with the action you took you should have first given me a prior notice if I was okay with your move first before you will proceed to do that. Is that how you will disappoint and embarrass me infront of my friend when he gives you the contract documents?
Caller: Honourable please don’t say that, this business deal I am about to go in, it is not a one time business I want to do with that ministry. I want a cemented legacy with the agricultural ministry so please don’t judge me with this small mistake I did. I wanted to call you but I thought you will be in a meeting by that time and I didn’t want to bother you.
Hon Nii Nortey: Please next time do the right thing and don’t be thinking for me Audrey. It’s money we are talking about here and the first time of doing business with you, you know very well that first impressions counts and honestly I will blunt here, I am not impressed over here. Something that I was supposed to get a transaction reflection on my phone today, it is going to take 3 working days before I get an alert.
Caller: Am very sorry honourable, I promise never to ever repeat this unpardonable and unprofessional move again. I will make it up to you at the right time sir.
Hon. Nii Nortey: You I have heard you but please next time we do business please don’t even for a second think of sorting me out with a cheque. I prefer cash or electronic bank rather than cheques. Do well to also give me updates on every step you take concerning the supply you will be making. Have a nice day. (cuts call as a knock comes on his door)
Secretary: Sir please the media lady is in, should I allow her in right now or she should wait a bit.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Allow her in and as I instructed, no visitors for now until the media lady walks out of my office.
Secretary: Okay sir, please will you need anything?
Hon. Nii Nortey: Nothing for now, if I need anything I will notify you with the intercom so get the lady in on your way out.
Secretary: Very well noted sir. (walks out and signals the lady to go in)
Adoma: Thank you very much madam secretary. (knocks and enters honourable’s office)
Secretary: (talking to herself) Eeeeiiii media person coming to grant an interview and you have heaped you boobs like Kejetia kokonte on a truck to the market place. This is how you do then the people you are granting interview will lose focus and give wrong answers which will make the public mock the person been interviewed. Well it is none of my business, let me go back to the work I have been instructed to do.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Hey who do we have in my office this sunny day? Honestly when you called and told me you were on you way here, I thought it was one of your pranks where you don’t keep to your word.
Adoma: Oh honourable you are making me shy with you statement. You know I am in my final year in school and there are a lot of things I have to do before the final day for the exams. I have been doing research, writing different quizzes and IA’s aside the project works and group studies.
Hon. Nii Nortey: It is okay Adoma, kindly spare me that long lecture because I was once like you and I know how things are for students when they get to their final year. You are looking so smashing and ravishing in your dress this hot afternoon, stand up and come and give me a tempting kiss to calm my nerves down.
Adoma: Honourable you know the way I have missed you, a small kiss won’t do anything for both of us, can you please let us go to the hotel right now so I start to offload everything I brought on you.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Today we are not going to any hotel my dear, we are doing everything right here in my office. We start from my desk here then we proceed to the sofa there then finally we will draw the curtains down in my washroom.
Adoma: Honourable, you know that is impossible because I like to scream and moan when you are rooted inside me. I don’t want your secretary or anyone waiting at your reception to hear my moans and screaming.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Don’t worry you pretty head at all my sweet Adoma, you see erh, this room has soundproof features so no matter the noise you make here, no one can hear your screams or moans.
Adoma: Eeeeiiiii honourable you are really poised for today’s encounter but trust me I brought all my arsenals and I will be firing on all cylinders today. Let me first use your washroom as you warm-up for me.
Back at the Provision Shop:
Lauren: (sees the things the ladies have collected and it gets him on his feet) Cindy buuu…..uuuuu….uttttt is everything alright?
Cindy: Not really my dear, I couldn’t get all the things I wanted here my dear. I wanted horlicks, short bread, canned beef and maionese but it’s seems your shop is short of that stock so I will take money from you so that I go to the mart down the street to get it.
Lauren: (face changes and speaks in a low tone) So how much are we talking about here?
Cindy: Baby just a hundred cedis for those things then you will add three hundred cedis to it for my upkeep. Lovia please take lead with the things and return the basket as I will rush to get the remaining things.
Lovia: Okay my dear, Lauren thanks so much for this provisions. I will excuse the two of you for now. (walks out of the shop)
Lauren: (sweating on his forehead) It my pleasure my dear.
Cindy: Sweetheart I am waiting for you to give me the money so I can go and get the remaining things.
Lauren: Ah Cindy, don’t you have sympathy for your fellow human? You have virtually emptied my mother’s provision shop and you are still demanding for money from me. How do you expect me to render account to my mother when she comes here?
Cindy: (plays smart) Ah Lauren so you are now complaining because of the small things I and my sister came to pick in your mother’s shop. Are you not the person who promised to take good care of me whenI accept your proposal? Are you not the same person who told me to take anything we want over here?
Lauren: If I said you can take anything you want it didn’t mean you should come and empty the shop. With this if you visit this shop twice from now it will only be left with the shelves. Moreover you haven’t even formally accepted my proposal even.
Cindy: Excuse me Lauren, I was living my life in peace until you came along promising me heaven and earth. Look at me from head to toe and tell me if I don’t deserve the very best of things life can offer. Now are you giving me the money or not?
Lauren: Cindy before God and man, if I say I will even give you a cedi then am the biggest liar on this planet. The little money on me, I am going to render it as part of the sales I have made today. You have looted almost everything in this shop and I won’t kill myself trying to please you.
Cindy: (cuts in) Thank you so much for calling me names, I never knew you will turn your back and insult me after inviting me here to pick a few things from you mother’s shop. Your peers are spraying thousands of cedis on their lovers and you are here calling me names just because I took some few things over here. See erh don’t ever call me again or if you see me coming and you make a mistake and you step on my shadow, I will report you to your father or betterstill change your sleeping place for you.
Nonsense!!! (releases a loud hiss as she walks away)
Lauren: (talking to himself) F**king girl, silly girl, if all the girls I proposed to did the same thing you just did like will you come and meet this shop the way it is? Greedy slamming bitch, now how am I going to render proper account to my mother when she comes to the shop in the evening? I should have listened to Bobby when he warned me about this Cindy girl, I have learnt my lesson in a very bitter way. Indeed life has no manual, it only gives you lesson to correct your mistakes. Cindy!!! Cindy!!! Oh, Cindy!!! You have bitten more than you can chew and you will vomit it out in due course.
Did Cindy do the right thing to Lauren?
If you were in Lauren’s shoe what would you have done?
To my ladies, have you treated any guy like that before?
