NKOMO WO HOR ON MONDAY (TALES OF LOVE STORY).
A friend of mine, called Mercy, who is 27 years old has been dating her man Joseph Ansong for the past five years.
They have been good lovers all these while. Joe comes from a family of five; having two sisters. He was 30 years old and a Laboratory Technician at a private clinic at Spintex, Accra. Mercy is a Diploma nurse who has been working with the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. Almost all of Joe’s friends knew Mercy and same for Mercy too.
All the 5 years, Mercy and Joe witnessed the wedding and marriage ceremonies of their mates and friends. Mercy was becoming frustrated because she couldn’t tell why they are not getting married. Their financial status was not that bad. Mercy just didn’t know why Joe was not expressing any interest in marrying her. She begun to have double minds about Joe. She thought of seeing someone else because all her 5 years would be wasted if Joe doesn’t marry her.
In December, 2016, Joe’s mother Mama Adwoa got critically ill and got admitted at one of the wards in the hospital where Mercy works. One afternoon, as she was on her way to pay the woman a visit at the ward, Mercy bumped into a young nice looking man, Cyril. Cyril was a Medical student in his final year. Cyril smiled at Mercy as she said sorry for bumping into him. Cyril was also on his way to the same ward Mercy was heading to. He was meant to be present for ward rounds. Mercy and Cyril conversed while going go the ward and exchanged phone numbers.
Cyril liked Mercy. He called her that night and they talked at length. They talked as though they’ve known each other for years. Cyril didn’t hide his feelings from Mercy. He told her straight away that he liked her and he wish she would be his girlfriend.
Mercy smiled on the other side of the phone. Her phone went off due to erratic power supply in her neighborhood.
Next day, she paid Cyril a visit at his hostel. There, she told Cyril he should give her some time for her to think about his proposal. Cyril seemed to be the romantic type . He appeared to be more interested in marriage even more than Mercy herself. His elder brother, Frank, who is a Pharmacist, married his wife Joanna a year before he even graduated and they are now enjoying a good marriage life and he wanted to follow suit.
2 weeks later Mama Adwoa, Joe’s mother, had been taken to the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital as her condition had worsened and needed to be regularly monitored by her nurses and doctors.
All these while , Mercy had not made mention of Cyril to Joe; or vice versa. She tolerated the no-interest-in-marriage attitude of Joe.
2 weeks after Joe’s mom was transfered to the ICU, Cyril took Mercy to his house to meet his mom and two siblings; even though Mercy had not given him a reply to his proposal.
Joe’s mom got better and was discharged home. Mercy’s attention and love gradually drifted from Joe to Cyril. She now loves Cyril because he is always there for her in various ways; and was ready to marry her as soon as he finishes school. Her love for Joe had vanished. She had now decided to break up with Joe and say yes to Cyril.
2 months ago, Mama Adwoa died just in the week that Mercy had planned to go to Joe and tell him that they should go their separate ways. Mercy held on her decision because she will seem heartless to go and break up with Joe since he was mourning the mom.
One afternoon, after Joe’s mom had been buried and all funeral rites done, Mercy went to Joe to tell him his decision to break up with him. As she knocked and entered the room, Joe knelt on one knee, pulled a ring and said, ‘Will you marry me’?
Mercy was so confused. What? Why now?
Joe told her that his late mom told her to marry her (Mercy) because she is a good lady and has a good heart. And that he wants to satisfy the wish of her late mom.
Now Mercy is confused. She doesn’t love Joe anymore. Should she say yes to Joe to satisfy his late mom’s wish despite the fact that she doesn’t love him OR she should just tell Joe what she came to tell him and go ahead to say yes to Cyril
If you were Mercy, what will you have done?
