John Kofi Mensah came down the spiraling staircase, his heavy valise in hand. At the base of the steps, he stopped to take a final look at his reflection in the large mirror on the wall facing him. The house was designed in such a way that unless you were coming down those steps, you would never know of the existence of that mirror.
Like the mirror, many things about John Mensah were either secret or unfathomable. Even his name did not reveal which part of the country he hailed from. He could have come from any of the several ethnic groups of the Southern part of the country, where the third male in a family was a Mensah and a male born on Friday was called Kofi. In fact, there was a saying that there is a Mensah in every home; to wit, there is a black sheep in every family.
