BETRAYED EPISODE 15
© Aaron A. A
The happy laughter turns into a massive shock on Araba’s face, turning her face into the ugly lines of a gargoyle!
Fear, panic and shock make her arms flail, and then her eyes suddenly rolls in her head as a form of electric current rips through her body, and she collapses to the ground, her limbs going liquid, foaming at the mouth!
She has just had a massive heart attack brought about with the earth-shattering shock of seeing Kwame again.
Chief Inspector Nii Lante and another policeman emerge from the car and run towards her.
Kwame Awuah stays some distance away and watch as the police stretches her out on the ground and call for an ambulance!
Nana Yaw’s car then enters the yard, and when he sees Araba on the ground he runs forward, but when he sees that she is half-paralysed he turns away and falls down at Kwame’s feet, bawling with remorse.
Oh, father, father, father! I’m so sorry! Please forgive me, please! She is evil father, and she used me! She even tried to kill me! I went to the police station and found some men called Adamu and Tawiah! They’re accomplices of Abokyi! They were going to kill me, and Araba knew about it! I’m so sorry, father! Please forgive me!! I have been such a fool!!
You will keep the hospital, boy. But as an employee, and nothing else. For the sake of your mother, I forgive you, and will not press charges against you. But, you’re no longer my son. You’re an employee now, and will receive only salaries from me. You can keep the house in East Legon, and you can keep the two cars I bought you, but that’s the end. You’re no longer my son, do you hear me? Now get the hell out of my face before I change my mind and kill you where you stand!
The ambulance arrives, and as they carry Araba away on a stretcher she turns her head, and Kwame sees that her mouth is so twisted that it is almost into her neck!
Her beauty is gone, and what is left is ugly.
Her right hand is folded up against her chest, but her left is okay.
She reaches out with her left hand to touch Kwame as tears course down her face, but Kwame moves away from her hand.
Weeping, torn, and tortured, Nana Yaw runs to his car, gets in, and drives out.
And so, Araba is admitted at the hospital her husband has just left, with a massive stroke.
And the doctor who attends to her, Nana Yaw, is no longer the owner of the hospital, but an employee!
Mr. Kwame Awuah is home again, and his workers fawn around him and embrace him with happiness and tears.
Araba didn’t recover from her stroke.
She died three weeks after admission.
Grieving, lost and totally shattered, Nana Yaw leaves the country and settles in the United Kingdom.
The kind-hearted Kwame Awuah has forgiven him, and has bought a house in London for Nana Yaw.
A year and a half later, Mr. Kwame Awuah marries Maame Akosua.
He donates three of his buildings to the church she attends. He has now become a staunch member of the church, too, and has become a Christian so strong that his fire and zeal is incomparable as he uses his wealth now to advance the church of the Lord.
She gets pregnant, and gives birth through caesarean to a great boy!
She is close to sixty years, and this is deemed a most incredible miracle!
On their way back home from the hospital, their car stops at a two-lane traffic intersection.
He didn’t wait around, my love. By the time we came out of the bath he was gone. Our dear God sent him, and I’m sure that one day we’ll find him.
It is a pity, really. God used him to bless me, and bring a change to a life I thought was lost and gone forever. It is not fair. I should be able to see him again.
And then a sleek, beautiful Escalade pulls up beside their car.
Its window winds down slowly, and then the driver turns his head and looks at them.
Kwame Awuah sees him first, and he screams, startling the baby, who begins to bawl.
You startled my prince, you clumsy old man!
Kwame Awuah is trembling and pointing at the man.
See, darling see! It is the man, the stranger!
Maame leans forward and sees the stranger in the car waving to them.
Please, please, sir! Pull over! Pull over! We want to speak to you!
PULL OVER, PLEASE! PULL OVER! I NEED TO SPEAK TO YOU!!
The stranger just smiles.
The light turns to green, and his window begins to wind up again.
No, no, no, no! Don’t go!
Stop right there, I command you!!
I don’t take orders from old imbeciles!!
The window closes, and he speeds off, leaving them staring.
Thank you! Thank you very much! My family and I thank you! May God bless you!
Maame smiles happily and takes his hand.
They are very happy.
In the Escalade the stranger removes his hat.
It is attached to the fake facial hair on his face so the beard, sideburns and moustache all come off with the hat.
He tosses it into the back.
Without the thick beard and moustache now, he is a young man with an incredibly handsome face!
Well, Lord, You did know what You were doing! I saw Kwame Awuah glowing! Obviously he has indeed become a Christian. Remind me never to doubt you again!
He is on a lonely stretch of road approaching a most beautiful house on the beach front!
Suddenly great lightning splits the air, and booming thunder reverberates all around. For a moment sky darkens and millions of stars appear in the sky, and then the sun appears again.
The young handsome man laughs and shakes his head with wonder.
He knows only he has been allowed to see that awesome display.
And he is happy, because he knows he is privileged!
Yeah, I know it! You’re an awesome God indeed!!
The End. (Thanks for reading, pls give a comment on this story)
