It was another Monday morning and I knew I had to get to work,although I was the boss I hated going to work late. I stood up from the bed ,did a little bit of morning devotion and started preparing for my first day at my dad’s company ———-the company wasn’t owned by my dad alone ,he and his childhood friend had built the company but still I could still call it my dad’s company.
Although my family was really rich,I had gone out to work in other companies not because of the money but because I believed working in other companies apart from my dad’s one will make me to be able to make full use of my potentials,unlike my father’s company where I could do whatever I liked like a spoilt brat.I had not even wanted to take the job as managing director 1 of my dad’s company if not for the persuasion from my mom although the salary was about 5 times better than my current one.
I picked my phone which I had switched off the other night, switched it on and like every other day,the first call of the day came in and it was from no one other than my fiance ‘Clara’.
Clara:Hey darling, how was your night?
Me:Splendid and yours?
Clara:Same.I hope you are ready for work because I don’t want you to be late on your first day of work.
Me:Am done but I just want to eat the little noodles I prepared before I take my leave.
Clara:Mr chef am 100% sure the noodles you prepared must be totally soggy.
Me:(Laughs) So are you telling me I don’t know how to cook.
Clara:I don’t know how about that but maybe you will have to show me what you’ve got this weekend.
Clara: Okay,bye for now . Love you.
Me:Bye.Love you too.
We ended the call and I quickly devoured my noodles before I left home.
As I drove my car to work, I started thinking about my relationship with Clara.Our relationship was fun but the truth is that I am just starting to like her due to the fact that our engagement was a forced one———it was based on business between my dad and her dad.So as long as we are still engaged to each other,the two dad still have shares in each other’s company.
I arrived at work and parked my car at the office garage .As I walked to my office,the workers started greeting me due to the fact that they knew me before now,i got tired of greeting and immediately I brought out my phone and started checking my messages on whatsapp . I got busy with the phone and as I was about to reach my office, I crashed into someone.
Me:Oh my , am so sorry.
“Can’t you just watch where you are going” The strange lady I have never seen in this company shouted at me.
I wanted to tell her not to make her vocal cords cut off but seeing that I already spilled the coffee she was holding on her dress, I just told her ‘am sorry’.
She walked away furiously and I kept on looking at her as she walked away then I saw something I didn’t see before, this girl is extremely beautiful and the most beautiful girl I have seen in my life.
But who is she and what could she be doing her because she definitely does not look like someone who works here.I kept on wondering as I headed to my office .
