I stormed out of the office and I walked to the cafeteria. My body was shaking as I sat down. I couldn’t explain how I felt. It was a mix of anger, shock, fear and what not. How could Badmus have been seeing Teniola right under my nose and I didn’t even know? It was Teniola of all people he picked? (more…)
From the look on Badmus’ face and the way he quickly disengaged, it was obvious that she was his wife. She walked into the office in all her glory. She gave him a kiss and sat down. She looked like she was in her mid or late thirties. She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful smile. Fair and slim. Her perfume smelt expensive. Even more expensive than Onome’s. (more…)
“It was nothing serious sir. She was just angry at what I was saying to her.” Fayo replied.
“Yes sir.” Onome and I chorused.
Badmus started long and hard at us and said,
“If all of you are not going to say the truth, I’d call an eye witness and ask. It won’t be funny when I find out the whole truth.” (more…)
The men from security matched into our office in troops. Useless people. When fight had finished. They were now doing stern face for us up and down.
“What is happening here?” The CSO asked. (more…)
“Excuse me?” Onome said.
“I said they no born you well to try am!” Fayo said.
“You’re not in a position to tell me what I can and can’t do in my department.” Onome said coldly.
“So you better go back to your department and mind your business.” She added.
“Push me now.” Fayo dared. (more…)
I woke up that fateful Monday morning feeling like a queen. Everything was right with the world. Well, almost everything. Badmus had been so distant from me. He wouldn’t resume work till 12pm sometimes, then he would close at 4pm and vanish into thin air. When I go to his office to look for him, he would either be in a meeting, too busy to see me or not even around at all. (more…)
Onome had not arrived at the office yet. The plan was to drive in just after her and park beside her. So she could see me in all my glory, getting down from my new car. Scratch that, new machine. (more…)
I looked out Fayo’s window to see who it was. It was Wayas. He was having an argument with a security official at the gate. I looked away and continued trying to park the car. (more…)
“You’re sure it’s ok? You want this one?” Badmus said.
I was still in shock that Badmus was buying me a car after just three weeks of dating. He didn’t just take me to any car shop, it was a Mercedes car shop. (more…)
“What about this one?” The man asked us.
“Do you like this one?” He gestured to it.
“It’s not bad.” I shrugged. Anything was fine with me. I was still in shock at the drastic turn around of events. (more…)
