“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.

#NEXTDAY

LOCATION: MALLSHAFT COMPANIES LIMITED (RECEPTION)

.

An elegant dressed lady in her early 20 walked into the reception, she was beautiful to the extent that she can be mistaken for mermaid, she is a gem; a rare gem of its kind, she dressed in a pink ready-made gown, her beautiful rounded face could made you fall for her instantly especially if she is smiling; her unique dimples will leave you motionless and speechless, her big and seductive eyebrows are something to be talk about; who knows if that is the origin of her beauty, her pink lip is so inviting for kisses, her long nose was rare and strange, they made her more beautiful, her flawless skin was enviable, it’s smooth and velvet, she is a damsel, her beauty is out of this world, God really scheduled his time to create such a rare and outstanding damsel.

.

“Good morning ma what can I do for you?” The receptionist greeted.

“Good morning ma, please I am asking for Chief Nnamdi Richard.” Anita responded smiling.

“Boss? Please can I know your name?” The receptionist asked warily.

“I’m Anita Peter.” Anita replied jolly.

“Oh! Miss Anita, boss has been waiting for you, please this way.”The receptionist expressed as she portray the way to the Chief’s office.

“Thank you ma.” Anita expressed happily as she walked majestically to the Chief’s office.

.

{KNOCK}

.

“Who’s there?” A voice echoed from inside.

“Sir, it’s me Anita.” Anita responded from outside.

“Oh! Anita please come in, the door is not locked.” I explained as she walked inside.

On seeing the pretty damsel standing before me, I was motionless and speechless; I solely opened my mouth wide, I was just imaging playing with this angel before me at the beach with our son, many thought ran into my head but I just have to explain little, I was revived back by her greeting.

“Good morning sir.” She greeted bending down a little as a sign of respect, but I never answered.

“Good morning sir.” She greeted again but I was still unconscious.

“Good morning sir.” She greeted and she increased the volume of her tone.

“Ehmmm… emm… Go..od morning dear, how was your night?” I responded to her greeting modestly but shocking.

“Splendid sir, hope no problem sir?” She asked baffled.

“No problem dear, why did you ask?” I asked lashed.

“You’re lost in thought some minutes ago, I greeted you for minutes before you was revived, hope everything is okay?” She explained and questioned nervously.

“Nothing is wrong, I was admiring your beauty.” I replied jokingly.

“Are you the Anita that I gave a ride yesterday?” I asked teasingly. She raised her eyes in disbelief.

“Y.e…ss sir, I’m A..nita Chi..di….ogo Peter.” She replied stammering with a shaking voice.

“Wonderful, you look different as in you’re more beautiful.” I explained beaming.

“Thanks you sir.” She replied happily.

“I’m sorry about what happened yesterday; hope you’re not angry at me?” I said beseeching.

 “Not at sir, I had known Chioma to be like that since our childhood days, we will still come back and reconciled.” She responded positively.

“Thanks, now let go to the main discussion, where are your qualifications with your CV and application letter?” I asked as she handed a brown envelope to me. I cross-examine her document and I could see she must be a brilliant type.

“You had a fantastic result, I think you are qualified for the job as for me, but other departmental managers have to interview you for my approval, if you fail the interview you lose the job so I wish ou best of luck.” I explained to her, I called my secretary to inform all the managers that there is meeting at the company conference.

.

FEW MINUTES LATER

.

Anita was standing infront of 16 managers, I could see she was nervous and she fear she may fail.

“I present to you this applicant as the chief accountant of this company; Miss Peter Anita (pointing to Anita), she had passed my own interview and it remain yours, here is her credentials.” I explained and I forwarded her credentials to a manager.

“Let the interview start please.” I concluded.

“Sir, I don’t think we need to interview this damsel, her results and certificate is enough as evidence of what she worth, she is very brilliant, smart and intelligent according to her result and appearance, I think she is in the best position for the job.” Mining department managers vocalized.

“I think Mr. Seun (Mining manager) has said the fact, she is qualified for the job, beside her appearance has shown that.” Fishmeal department manager supported Mr. Seun opinion.

“Her appearance has truly shows she’s qualified for the job sir, please appoint her, she is unique.” Engineering Department Manager; Mr. Ade supported. 

“I understand all of you, we are all men (all laugh in chorus). “Her appearance has shown she’s qualified for the job right?” Chief Nnamdi mimicked teasingly; all the managers laughed in unison, Anita was smiling motionlessly; she was holding a marker to write on the whiteboard.

“You we all agreed she’s qualified for the job?” I asked smiling.

“Yes.” All the departmental managers answered in unison.

She’s qualified… She worth this…” Some managers were soliloquizing to one another.

“Miss Peter Anita, congratulation you are employed as the Chief Accountant of Mallshaft companies limited.” Chief Nnamdi concluded.

“Not this life, you can’t be employed…..

  1. ADE SIDE OF THE STORY

.

 “Not this life, you can’t be employed in my husband’s company, you don’t know we are now fire and water, we are born to be enemies, well yours is minor {she turned to her husband}, Mr. Nnamdi Richard, I advise you to terminate her appointment now or you face my wrath.” Chioma concluded with a heinous looks.

All the departmental managers were shocked and confused. Anita on the other hand was sweating and panting restlessly, she wasn’t expecting the uninvited visitor in her interview, she fear she may lose her job and appointment, Chief Nnamdi just looks at Chioma from head to toe. “What a shameless woman” he thought, he was thoroughly disappointed in her.

“What are doing here?”That was the statement the Chief gave out.

“Ask me once again.” Chioma rebutted angrily.

Chief Nnamdi picked up his phone, he informed some securities to come and throw out a nuisance, he also called his secretary to prepare the all the vouchers and documents for the new accountant, Chioma was shocked and dumbstruck; she was motionless and speechless, she was looking irritated and disappointed. Anita and the departmental managers breathe a sigh of relief; they were happy that her appointment wasn’t terminated because of a nuisance. She angrily walk out from the conference to avoid embarrassment from the securities, she looks at Anita with a devilish looks, “We will meet again.” That was what the look from her face narrated.

.

In short, Anita was appointed as the Chief Accountant of MALLSHAFT COMPANIES LIMITED.

.

It was a wonderful and interesting adventures and thrillers in Mallshaft Companies Limited between the departmental managers, Chief Nnamdi, Chioma and Anita, but I would just skip some scenes since you guys are no more patience with me.

BACK TO THE MAIN SCENE

.

TWO MONTHS LATER

LOCATION: DIVINE MEALS FOODS

Mr. Ade; the engineering department manager was sitting in a plastic chair in the rich and mighty restaurant; Divine Meals Foods, he was dipping the wine he was consuming slowly, he looks at his wrist watch and he is becoming impatient.

“Why is this woman doing like this? I have other things to do.” He soliloquized frustrated.

He looks around and saw the pretty damsel that is coming his way; he dropped the wine glass he was holding on the table, he was so amazed and speechless at the unlamented beauty, he stood up and greet the rare beauty, behold it was Chioma.

“Good day ma.” He greeted bending his head a little as a sign of respect.

“Good morning Mr. Ade, how was your night?” She responded to his greeting.

“Splendid ma, yours?” He replied and asked of hers.

“Restless, disturbed and disappointed” Chioma replied sadly.

“But why?” Mr. Ade asked concerned.

“Can you believe Chief Nnamdi is beating me because of your new accountant?” Chioma replied with a crocodile tears dropping from her face.

“What!” Mr. Ade yelled in disappointment.

“He even denied not having an affair with Anita despite all the messages they sent to each other, he even told me directly that my days are numbered in his house and I don’t know my wrong doing.” Chioma falsely stated with the crocodile tears dropping from her eyes.

“Oh! I see, I confirmed that Anita is single, all the single male workers including me had proposed dating to her but she turn down all the proposes, no wonder her closeness to the chief is something apprehensive, ma, what can I do because I really love Anita, I fall in love with her at first sight but my married boss is taking my love away from me, and I know you love your husband so dearly and he is cheating on you…” Mr. Ade explained but unfinished.

“The fact that baffled me the most is because Anita is my best friend, she is my mutual and childhood friend, I don’t want to treat her fuck up because of the love I have for her but now that she has misbehaved, I think I will have to strike her.” Chioma lashed audibled.

“Yes, that’s the best but please don’t kill and implicate her, I dearly love Anita, I wish she is my house wife but I won’t hesitate to help in any way to get back what is truly ours back to our self.” Mr. Ade gave his speech.

“When are you throwing the company party?” Chioma asked brusquely.

“In two weeks time ma.” Mr. Ade riposted instantaneously.

“That’s the day we will execute our mission but we have to discuss some issues tomorrow, I would have love to conclude this discussion today but I have an important meeting to attend.” Mrs. Chioma excused and concluded.

“This place?” Mr. Ade asked unrest.

“No here.” Chioma concluded, she dropped a paper infront of Mr. Ade, she stood up and leaves the eatery. Mr. Ade cross-check the paper and he was astonished with the location.

“Can I trust you?” Mr. Ade asked leery but rhetorically.
