45 DAYS Episode 24-25
Effe parks her car and gets out. It is 3.00 a.m. in the morning.
She had tried the previous day to come and look for Chris, but just as she finished dressing up a call had come through from Doctor Ameyaw; there had been a serious motor accident, and she was needed urgently to perform life-saving surgeries.
She had had no option than to rush to the Ameyaw-Eden Clinic where she had performed surgeries throughout the day.
She had called his phone every chance she got, but it had been off on each occasion.
She had not even bothered to go home when she left the clinic although she is so tired.
She had driven straight to his house.
She sees his taxi and parks her car behind it. There are other cars parked around, but there is nobody around.
She climbs the steps carefully, walks along the corridor to his door and knock, taking out her phone and trying his number again, and is very surprised when his phone begins to ring at the other end.
He picks the call, but does not speak.
(in a very soft voice)
You hurt me, in a way I’ve never been hurt before.
She shuts her eyes tightly as her heart skips a beat.
She can feel the pain in his soul, and it tortures her heart so much knowing that she is, in a way, responsible for his pain.
I’m at your door.
Openthe door, Chris.
The key rattles in the lock, the handle is depressed, and then the door opens.
He stands in the doorway with the phone pressed to his ear. He is wearing black shoes, black trousers and a white singlet.
She steps past him into the room and stops.
There are two packed bags in the middle of the room. He is leaving! The realization shatters her resolve, and brings her feelings to the fore.
She turns and faces him.
Her eyes search his face, and she moves very close to him.
Don’t say anything more, Chris. I’m going to tell you everything that happened yesterday morning.
Chris. Please. Listen to me. You were going to leave without telling me. So just listen.
She takes his hand and leads him to a seat. She makes him sit down. She sits beside him and takes his left hand in both of hers.
She looks straight into his eyes, and tells him all that had happened before he walked into her room and saw her naked with Steve.
When she is done he looks at her deeply, searching her eyes.
So, you didn’t have sex with him.
It is a statement. She rubs his hand.
I won’t answer that, CB. You should know the answer to that. Do you believe me?
He brings her hand to his lips.
I believe you.
Because you told me.
She smiles, reaches out and touches his cheek.
You believe my words?
I love you, Effe. With my soul. I believe you. I know you will never lie about something like that.
She puts her head to one side and looks at him with strange lights dancing in her eyes.
I saw your eyes, Chris. The pain in them really cut me up. I will never hurt you, CB. Not intentionally. I went to my marriage bed a virgin, and Steve is the only man I have known intimately before I met you. One thing is certain, Chris. I will never be able to be with two men at the same time, never!
Steve nods and leans back. His expression is still troubled. He looks away from her and speaks.
Your ex wants you back. Can I still trust you with my heart?
Effe reaches out, holds his chin and turns his face round to face her.
I’m not thinking about him, Chris. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out how to deal with what is happening between you and me. I’ve never been with a man like you before, CB. You make me feel emotions I’ve never felt before. When we made love you did things to me I’ve never experienced, and you made me behave in a wanton uninhibited way that bothered me! When you’re not with me, or when we fight, I feel a pain I’ve never known. I’ve lost absolute control where you’re concerned. This is something new, Chris, and I have to deal with it, in my own way. That’s why, although I want to make love to you again so much, I must nevertheless ask you to wait. If this is the love of my life, I want it to begin right. I have very strong feelings for you, Chris, I won’t deny that. But then, I have to get to know you better. There’s also the fact that this has happened so fast, and I don’t want to realise later that maybe it happened because I was hurting. And I want you to trust me on this, please, CB.
He looks at her and his face is very tender, full of a love that almost breaks her down.
So you’re not ashamed of me?
She sees the concern in his eyes, the doubts on his face, the uncertainty, the need to be reassured. His inferiority complex is like a book on his face.
Effe gets up and gently sits on his laps. She links an arm around his neck and smiles into his eyes.
I’ll never be ashamed of you, Chris. I don’t mind if you’re my driver. I get paid well, and I have a bit saved, for us. And of course I want to make sure that what happened to Steve and I will never happen again.
(raising his eyebrows)
And what happened? Something you haven’t told me?
(in a sad voice)
I can’t have kids, Chris. Sometimes love isn’t enough. You’re young, and you’ll undoubtedly make a very good father. If we’re together, someday soon you would need children, and I wouldn’t be able to get give you even one. I’m barren, CB. You must remember that too.
He smiles, reaches out and caresses her calves tenderly.
When the time comes for that, we’ll adopt. I have no problems with that.
She looks at him, intrigued, suddenly feeling elated. That is not the answer she had expected.
She puts her arms around his neck and searches his face desperately.
You sure, Chris? You would really consider adoption and wouldn’t mind?
(his face earnest)
I love you, Effe. You’re the most amazing woman I’ve ever met. I’ve fallen for you, and I can spend my life with you alone. But I know you’d make a wonderful mother, so yes, we can adopt.
I’ve always wanted kids, Chris. I adore them.
Then we would adopt, Precious. I don’t ever wanna lose you. I don’t ever wanna make you sad. As long as you would have me, I’ll be there for you.
Tears glisten on her lashes for a moment, and there is a song in her heart.
She feels as if she is going to burst.
(in a choked voice)
Oh, Chris! Are you for real? Why do you make me feel like this?
He smiles then, and his cheeks dimple, and that crazy small boy look is once more on his face, the look that makes him so handsome and which kills her heart so totally.
And how do I make you feel, Doc?
She laughs happily, leans forward, and puts her sweet lips to his, kissing him gently, sweetly, tenderly, taking his heart away.
(murmuring against his lips)
You fill me with life, CB, you bad boy!
He crushes her against his chest and kisses her.
She feels him, and she knows in a second she will not be able to stop it.
Her whole body is tingling, alive, needing and wanting, thirsty for this amazing love drink that is driving her crazy.
She holds his hand and with a herculean effort she drags her lips from his.
She stands up quickly, panting.
She looks at him with eyes still inflamed with passion.
We need to cool down. Until you’re ready.
She laughs shakily.
Yes, Darling Boy. I’m now going into your kitchen to find something for us to eat. In the meantime, you better start unpacking. You’re going nowhere. You’re stuck with me forever.
He laughs gently, happily, and shakes his head.
Yes, Doctor. I’ll gladly serve a life sentence for you.
To be continued
It is late evening.
Effe sits in her office and gently massages her neck.
She had carried out two complicated surgeries earlier, and she is tired.
But she is happy. The previous day had been one of her happiest.
She feels like a teenager all over again. She smiles and glances at her watch.
Chris will be picking her up in about an hour. They are going out for dinner.
She does not know where he is taking her, but she knows it is going to be something unpredictable.
She feels a tingling in her body as she gets up and slips out of her skirt and blouse.
She takes them to the inner room of her office and returns a few minutes later dressed in jeans and a fetching blouse.
She glances at her watch again as she gets out of her office and heads for the elevators.
She puts her phone to her ear. It rings. He picks up.
Darling Boy. Are you here yet?
Almost, Precious. Got held up in a little traffic.
Hurry up. I’m hungry!
For food, or for love?
For both, you bad boy!
Ok. See you soon, Precious.
Effe rides the elevator to the fifth floor to MATERNAL CLINIC.
Doctor Anaman had called earlier that he wants her to perform surgery on a baby born with an extra leg.
Effe wants to see the baby and make an initial plan.
She emerges out on the reception area and as she walks towards Doctor Anaman’s Consultancy she sees Rebecca and Sheena through the glass door of DELIVERIES.
They are Elaine’s friends!
Effe experiences a sudden pang of pain and misery which she quickly tries to push away.
Suddenly her name is called from behind, and she turns to see Steve and Dr. Anaman walking towards her.
(in a rush)
Effe. Oh, you’re here. For the profiling of the baby, right?
Effe nods. She is looking at Steve. He seems so excited as he looks at Effe.
Elaine’s here, Effe. Her water broke. She’s in the Labour Room.
Effe nods and pushes down the great leap of sadness and jealousy in her bosom. She pats Steve on the arm gently.
That’s good. Soon you’ll be a proud father.
Yeah. Isn’t that great!
Listen, Effe. Can you wait a little bit? Elaine is fully dilated, and this’ll take a few minutes. I’ll be with you soon so that we can see about little Akwasi’s problem.
Actually, I’m going to grab a bit to eat, so I’ll see you tomorrow.
She is suddenly scared. She knows she doesn’t want to be here yet.
It is suddenly too painful, reminding her forcibly that she can never be in a labour room, can never have a man smiling and looking so happy as Steve is doing now.
She can never put that look on Chris’ face, and maybe, when the love is aged, he might want that feeling, and not the feeling from an adoption home.
Alright. Just a second. Let me check on her and then we’ll talk, okay?
He does not wait for a reply. He opens the glass door and goes inside. Steve follows him without another look at Effe.
Effe feels tears dancing in her eyes, but she tosses her head back and against her will she walks to the glass doors, push them open and walks in.
Rebecca and Sheena look at her, and Sheena titters and winks at her.
Oh, the Righteous Angel is here! Please, Elaine’s going to have her Prince! Don’t you come and put any evil spell on her, Madam Righteous.
Effe smiles at her and sits down beside her.
So sweet. Tell me, when are you going to have your baby too? Oh, don’t tell me. You have to get married first, right?
Sheena’s lips tighten and her eyes go mad with anger.
At least I’m not bloody barren, like you!
Effe smiles again.
Oh, how do you know? Hundreds of abortions, I guess!
Sheena glares at her, tries to speak, and shuts up. For a moment she looks very lost, and her eyes look haunted.
Rebecca smiles secretly and gives Effe a thumbs-up sign.
It is time.
Elaine is screaming.
Steve is standing by her side, holding her hand.
She is gripping his hand so tightly that he fears his hand will be blistered for life.
Her legs are propped up with a sheet covering her lower body so that she and Steve cannot see what Dr. Anaman and the two nurses are doing.
Elaine is screaming and pushing as tears and sweat fall down her face. Steve holds her hand and whispers to her, encouraging her.
Come on, baby. Push harder! Our son is almost here… my son! Come on, baby! You can do it! I love you, Pumpkin!
Come on Elaine… head’s out now …a little push now… almost there …almost there…
The baby is half-way out. The two nurses look at each other, and then at Elaine, and then at the baby.
Dr. Anaman catches the baby, and his strident voice soon rings out, clear and strong.
Steve smiles through his tears.
He leans forward and kisses Elaine lightly.
We did it, Steve. Our baby! Our son!
(weeping uncontrollably with joy)
Yes, my love! My sweetest Elly, you made me a father! I love you, baby! Thank you, baby! I love you, baby!!
He is raining kisses on her face. She is giggling and touching his face, crying and laughing with happiness.
Dr. Anaman looks at them briefly as he expertly cuts the baby’s cord.
The nurses are cleaning the baby, and they still look at each other.
Elaine touches Steve desperately.
Darling! Darling! I want to see him! I want to see our son!
Yeah, yeah, baby, darling! Me too!
He straightens and looks at Dr. Anaman, who looks at them and then begins to attend to Elaine.
Steve walks forward slowly, rubbing his tears of joy away.
The backs of the nurses are turned as they clean the crying baby.
Is everything okay, Doc? You look… you seem quiet.
Doc Anaman glances at her and tries to smile.
Everyhting’s okay, Elaine. The boy’s just fine!
Steve pauses behind the nurses.
Can I see my son, please?
The nurses look at each other and slowly stand aside.
The baby is lying on warm sheets, and he is crying.
Steve looks at him, and slowly the look on his face changes from expectant excitement to incomprehension to absolute shock and then to great fear.
He shakes his head numbly. His body begins to shake hard, and he takes a horrified step back.
Elaine is suddenly frightened.
Steve? What’s it, darling? Honey?
Steve looks at Doc Anaman with very terrified eyes.
What’s this, Doctor? What’s the meaning of this?
Be cool, Steve. I’m sure there’s a pretty good explanation for this. It is very possible.
SHUT THE F--K UP!!! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS???
Elaine struggles to sit up, her face now filled with panic and desperation.
What’s the meaning of all this? You people are scaring me!! What’s wrong? Steve? Darling?
Steve turns with a roar of sheer terror and runs away from the Labour Room.
Steve crashes the waiting-room door open, causing Effe, Rebecca and Sheena to jump with fear.
He is screaming as he rips the glass doors of the Reception open and rush out to the elevators. He is so distraught and feels deceived.
What’s wrong? Has something happened to Elaine or the baby?
Effe is also confused. She looks after Steve, then at the doors of the Labour Room. She wonders what in God’s name would make Steve behave like that.
Fearing the worst, she and the other women look at the Labour Room door with apprehension. Effe is sure she heard the cry of a baby. What she is not sure about is Elaine’s condition. She wonders if something terrible has happened to her cousin.
Effe feels worried and scared now. It is true Elaine has betrayed her in the worst way possible but she never wish her any harm. She’s wished her nothing but the best after her abominable act with her Steve. Somehow, she has braced the fact that whatever was between Steve and her was not strong enough otherwise it would have survived the test of time and trouble..
Inside the labour room, one of the nurses is holding the new-born baby and brings him to Elaine.
Elaine takes one look and screams shrilly, and then she faints immediately.
Take the child to the ward! I need to revive Elaine. Take him out!
The baby is put in the incubator. The right temperature is set, and then one of the nurses wheels the baby out of the room through the waiting area to the infants room.
Effe, Sheena and Rebecca look through the glass cover of the incubator at the new boy and are shocked at the sight that meets their eyes..
JESUS H. CHRIST!!!
OH MY GOD!!! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!!!
Effe looks again and rubs her eyes. She is sure there’s been some mistake somewhere..
Even she is absolutely shocked.
The baby in the crib is healthy and big.
But he’s not black. He is a half-caste.
He is a white man’s child.
He has thick black hair.
He looks like an European.
Even Elaine’s African blood has not been able to dilute his strong European genes.
Effe wonders if Steve has British ancestors. She dismisses that thought for she would have known about it.
The baby simply cannot be Steve’s. There is no logical or scientific basis for him to be Steve’s.
Effe takes a closer look and realizes he looks a lot like the South African Paediatrician, Doctor Rupert Henderson!
(with deep shock)
Dear sweet Jesus!
