“Wow! I live there.” I xpressed.

“Come in let me give you a ride.” I concluded.

“Thank you sir.” She expressed.

She entered the car, I offered her some tissue papers to wipe her sweat, she complied and I also increase the coolness of the car AC and I speed off.

{INSIDE THE CAR}

CONVERSATION CONTINUED

.

“Please if I may ask, what is your name?” I asked while driving.

“Sir, I’m Anita Chidiogo Paul.” She replied sharply.

“Wow! What a nice name.” I exclaimed.

“The name is as beautiful as you.” I said teasingly.

“Thank you sir.” She appreciated smiling.

“Where are you coming from that made you to stand in that unfriendly sun?” I asked falsely.

“I’m coming back from AJ Company Limited; I went there for an interview but I don’t have to wait for such interview since I can’t give them what they were asking for.” She replied sadly.

“What are your qualifications? Or what are they asking for?” I asked baffled.

“I am qualified for the job and the tasks to be assigned, but the manager was demanding for s-x as his payment for the job and I can’t give him such payment, I can’t sell my body just for a job.” She narrated and concluded soberly.

“That’s the new method of employing female workers…” I wasn’t allowed to finish statement when she interrupted.

“Ehn…” She expressed shockingly.

I looked into her eyes; I could see the shocks and disappointment expression fuming on her face, I feel guilty for making such utterance.

“No… No… Anita, that’s not what I mean, I just brought out facts from my experience when I was a PA to a Manager, I mean no harm.” I defended my utterance.

“Okay sir, am sorry I made you guilty of your utterance.” She said beseeching.

“It’s okay, let go back to our discussion.” I said calmly.

“What are your qualifications?” I asked serenely.

“I’m a B.Sc holder in Accounting; I graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University with First Class Upper.” She replied softly.

“Wow! That’s unbelievable, this country self, how can a graduate like you be searching for a job, a first class graduate for that matter.” I expressed forlornly.

“This is the fifth year after my graduation and I wasn’t able to secure a job.” She expressed dejectedly.

“My Accountant was arrested yesterday for embezzling the company Four Million Naira, he confessed this morning that he used the money to finalize the house he was building, though I let go of him with the money but I sacked him.” I paused.

I step on the brake a little, I unzip my wallet and brought out two cards, I zipped the wallet and continued the conversation as I speed off. 

“Here is my personal card and here is my company card (I gave her the two cards), come to my office tomorrow for interview, if you’re qualified for the job, you got the job.” I concluded.

“Sir, this is unbelievable and unexpected, thank you sir, I am very grateful sir, thanks you very much.” She uttered happily. The expression could be visibly see on her face, she was more than happy, she was so excited and delight, I could see that she really needs the job.

.

FEW MINUTES LATER

.

“We have got to Mighty Estate, what is the building number you going?” I asked softly.

“No 34.” She retort immediately.

“Hmmm, that’s my house.” I replied amazed.

“Your house?” She asked surprisingly.

“Yes my house, check the address well, it might be a mistake.” I uttered baffled and befuddled.

“Okay sir, I think this must be a misquoting or mis-addressing.” She retorted as she unzipped her bag, she brought out a small paper and cross-examine the content in the paper.

“Yes, it’s No 34 sir.” She said after confirming it’s the no.

“34! Who are you going there to see?” I asked tamely.

“Chioma Nnamdi.” She replied in a jiffy.

“Chioma?” I asked softly….

“Yes my house, check the address well, it might be a mistake.” I uttered baffled and befuddled.

“Okay sir, I think this must be a misquoting or mis-addressing.” She retorted as she unzipped her bag, she brought out a small paper and cross-examine the content in the paper.

“Chioma Nnamdi.” She replied in a jiffy.

“Chioma?” I asked softly…

 

CHIEF NNAMDI CONTINUED HIS STORYLINE

.

“Chioma?” I asked softly but totally confused and irritated.

“You know her?” Anita asked suspiciously.

“Very well, she’s my wife.” I replied faking a smile.

“Wow! Unbelievable.” She expressed.

“I can’t believe this, I have to see her, she married such a good husband.” Anita exclaimed.

“Yes you will meet her, she is such a darling and loving wife, but I don’t pray no one emulated her.” I uttered disappointedly.

“Ame…. “You pray none emulated her.” But why?” Anita asked surprisingly.

“Yes o, when you got to my house you will know what am insinuating.” I replied not that audible.

“Ah!” Anita exclaimed disbelief.

.

Few minutes later, I am driving towards No 34 Mighty Estate, the gate was widely opened, I drove irrationally and unusual to the garage; I met Chioma yelling and screeching at the gateman (Collins), I parked inside the garage, I came down from the car irritably and I angrily walked into the building. Chioma doesn’t care about this, she base all her attention on the gateman (Collins) she was dealing with, she doesn’t even care about me anymore, and she just regarded me as her co-occupant not her husband. “Who care? Who tend?” {hisses}.

.

“You made me wait for minutes before you opened the gate, you don’t hear the horns from the car right? By the time am through with you, you will regret been employed here.” Chioma riposted irately.

“Am so sorry ma, I was in the toilet when I heard the horn of your car…” Collins tried to defend herself.

“You must be very stupid for such excuse.” She counter-blasted angrily as she landed a thunderous slap on Collins.

.

“Chioma baby!” Anita greeted teasingly from behind, Chioma turned to look at the greeter.

“Anita! How did you enter this house?” Chioma asked bemused, baffled and mistruthful.

“Oh! Don’t tell me you don’t see me when we drove in?” Anita replied womanly.

“How did you enter this house that’s my question, answer me!” Chioma yelled stridently.

“Take it easy babe, it’s not up to screaming and yelling, anyway, your husband gave me a ride…” Anita replied modestly but unfinished.

“Ewo, Chineke! So the rumor is true, so you are Nnamdi’s concubine…” Chioma charged.

“Excuse me please, I came here to visit and discuss some important issue with you, I don’t came here to be insulted, I never know your husband, I know him today, he only gave me a ride, nothing more…” Anita defended herself.

“Will you shut that gutter you call a mouth? You even have the gut to abuse me in my house, well it’s not your fault, I caused it all, but I want you to understand one thing that no matter how long you stay, no matter how lengthy you be my husband concubine, I will made you regret knowing and dating my husband.” Chioma lashes as she opted for the main building.

“There is nothing you will do, you are only barking, you are just an empty barren; and only empty barren make noises, there is nothing you will do, what am I even saying (she asked rhetorically), there is nothing you can do, you are only bragging, jealous woman, idiot and nuisance. Ah! People that have head doesn’t have cap o, how can a good and caring man like this (Chief Nnamdi) marry such a nuisance, God! I hope you crowned me with a good husband like this man.” Anita lashed, prayed and concluded and she walked out of the estate.
