“Nyaaka Bubu Nyaaka Chene!” Part 18

By Amie Sillah

Begay
“Let me come with you I love you but you rejected me and went for Aisha who has many suitors after her when I have none. I gave you myself freely and showed you what I can do but you still rejected me, please don’t you see I love you and want to come with you.”

Ous
He is trapped by Begay’s engagement and wanted to leave as soon as possible.
“We shall see just allow me to go and come back. I’ll make it up to you.” He then hugged her.

The Search Party
The search party came and Jegan pointed him to them.

Jegan
“That is him the fraudster who has caused misery to thousands of workers including myself, the Liberian Security Forces and the Interpol wants him; arrest him!”

Aisha
“So this is you? It is true! The criminal makes fool of you and destroys my life! I am finished! Where will I start from here?” She then turned to her friend Begay.
“What are you doing here with Ous? You went behind my back to cheat with him? Matty is right she warns me to be careful with you because you always deceives me. Take both of them away!”
The duo is whisked away into the police van both in handcuff.

Aisha
She paid Matty a visit and what did she find?

Saer coming out from Matty’s house and she is surprised. Mama Rose held her daughter’s hand.

Aisha
“Good afternoon Ma!”

Mama Rose
“Good afternoon Aisha! How are your parents?”

Aisha
“They are fine and have sent their greetings.” She turned to Matty;
“I was searching for Saer and I’ve searched everywhere and on second thought I decided to come and asked you to help me find him since he is your good friend. Allah is praised that I found him here.”
She turned to Saer and said, “I am very sorry for all what I’ve allowed you passed through due to my youthful exuberance. Can I speak to you alone?” Saer hesitated and looked at Matty who signaled him to comply.

Aside
I am very sorry and hope you have forgiven me.”

Saer
It is okay and I have forgiven you a long time ago.”

Aisha
She became happy and relieved.
“We can now plan for our wedding; I have learnt my lesson and am ready to wed you now.”

Saer
He went back to Matty and hugged her.
“It is late for you; as you can see we have done our registry wedding and are now off to Chicago for our reception.”

The Shock
“But you said you hated him and was out to ensure I go back to K.B? Why the change of heart?” Aisha asked Matty but Saer decided to reply her.

Saer
“We never liked each other because I thought she was interfering and siding with K.B but thanks to your misbehavior which drew us to each other; I misjudged her and now I know better that she is my missing rib and I have perfectly fitted it. If you don’t mind we are on our way to the airport.”

Mama Rose
She hugged and kissed her daughter and son in law as she shed emotional tears and prayed for them.

Aisha
   She stood and saw all the happening; she shook her head and rushed out.

At K.B’s House
She went to K.B’s house and shouted his name when there was no reply she got into the house only to rushed out again.

Yaadi
“Good afternoon Ma!”
“What is good about the afternoon? You’ve come to check whether your ‘mugu’ (naïve fool) is dead?”

Aisha
   “No Mama! I have offended him and have come to apologize.” Aisha knelt before Mama.

Mama Yaadi
Get up he has already forgiven you long time ago.

Aisha
“Has he? Where can I see him? I am now a changed person; I’ll marry and be very faithful to him.”

Mama Yaadi
“Wait for me he has given me something for you.”

Aisha
“Thank you Ma I’ll wait for you.” She is happy that K.B still remembers her.
“We can patch up; he is a noble man and has loved me very much. I’ll be very faithful to him, I would never betray him again, and K.B is my only true love! Allah will bless you Ma.”

Turn of Events
Mama Yaadi came out and threw her picture to her.

Aisha
She examined it and asked.
“This is my picture.”

Mama Yaadi
“Yes it is, K.B asked me to give it back to you.He was running up and down to give you the good news but you never gave him the opportunity to do so, he is now a U.S citizen which he won through the Visa lottery.”

Aisha
She slumped to the ground.
“Mama! Are you joking or what?”

Mama Yaadi
“Have I ever joked with you or do you know me as a jester? Good bye and good luck! Thank you Aisha for awakening my son from his ‘stupid love’ for you an insensitive brat! Nyaaka Bubu! Nyaaka Chene!”
Yaadi locked her door.

Aisha
She is shattered as she rolled upon the verandah!
“I am finished! I am done! What bad luck? I have overplayed and score myself. Mama Yaadi you are right! Nyaaka Bubu! Nyaaka Chene! America here I come! I want to drink poison! I want to die here!”

The End
