Richard is seen walking hurriedly to Ethan office with his note pad on his hand, he gently opened the door and went inside, Ethan is seen at his office desk working on his laptop at usual, he shifted his eyes away from the laptop to Richard as soon as Richard entered the office.

“ sir the investors from Germany just called that they are in Nigeria and would love to hold a meeting with you today”

“what………, I thought they are to arrive tomorrow” he asked in bewilderment

“ yes sir the appointment was for tomorrow, but they changed their mind”

“and you are just telling me this now” he barked at him

Richard flinched at the sound of his voice “sir, they just called now to inform me of the change”

Ethan snorted angrily, he hates not being prepared for something, he so wish to refuse them but he was a business man after all.

“ what appointment do I have today” he asked a bit calm

“ you have an appointment with the court by 2pm”

“ what time are they coming”

“ by 1:30pm”

Ethan looked at his wrist watch, the time says 12:43pm, he signed heavily

“call my lawyer, tell him to cancel the court hearing today, I will let him know when I will be free for that”

“ okey sir. But what excuse should I give sir”

Ethan looked up at Richard with a death stare

“ I know what to tell him, I will take my leave me, sir”

Ethan ignored him and returned to his work, Richard quickly left the office, he has grow fond of Ethan some how, he likes his personality though it a bit scary, at the early stage when he started working for Ethan he would get depressed but as time went by he started to get use to it, he knew deep down Ethan was not as dark as people think he is, but he just can’t places the reason for the darkness in his boss heart.


Mr Williams was in his office when a knock came to his door.

“ come in”

Mr Edward walked into the office

“Sir an email just came in from the court sir”

Mr William dropped what he was doing and put all his attention on Mr Edward, he will be going to the court soon to meet with Ethan, his lawyer barr. John will meet him there, he has prepared all what he was asked to do and bring by barr. John, time was the only thing he was waiting for.

“What is it”

“ the meeting as been cancel due to the fact that Ethan is not feeling too well to attend any meeting today, they will let you know when a new day is fixed”

Mr William was surprised at the same time glad to hear this new development, seem God is on his side.

“ quickly call barr. John and inform him of the new development”

“okey sir” with his he left the office, Mr William hoped that the meeting will not be rescheduled soon.


Nadia drove into the building of Cloudworld technology worldwide and in no time she parked her car in the parking lot, stepping down from the car she made her way to the reception hall, she was amazed of the well designed hall, the building alone was seven times bigger than her father building, the reception hall was just like her sitting room, wide and beautifully decorated, she made her way to the reception desk, there were three female receptionists attending to guest, she made her way to the one that was free as the rest were attending to people, the female receptionist smiled at her as she approached, Nadia returned the smile.

“ good day ma’am, welcome to Cloudworld technology, how may we be of help” said the receptionist with a smile still on her face.

“ good day to you too, please am here to see Mr Ethan Donald, is he in” She politely asked

“ yes he is in, do you have an appointment”

“no, I don’t have an appointment “

“ than an afraid ma’am, you can’t see the CEO”

Nadia exhale lightly, she knew it will be difficult to see Ethan without an appointment, such a big company will definitely have strong system of security, she has read through the procedure that you have to take if you want an appointment to meet with Ethan and time wasn’t something she has.

“ look, I know you are doing your job and believe me you are good at it but I really have to see him, if you can just put a call through him for me, I will highly appreciate it” Nadia requested politely

The reception stared at her, she thought Nadia was one of those street girls that comes here often in search of Mr Donald only to be thrown out by the security, so she decided to treat her like one.

“ can I give you a piss of advice, go get a life, if you think Mr Donald will even for one bit agreed to see someone like you then you are In for a shock, you better leave here before I call security, cheap s–t “

Nadia eyes grown in shock

“ excuse me, did you just call me a s–t”

“ you heard, now leave”

Nadia was so hurt by what the receptionist told her and she so wanted to react but thought against it, a lady in a front desk words can not get to her, she was better than that, but she was not going to leave without giving her a piss of her own advice, just as she was about to opened her mouth, a voice interrupted her,

“ Tracy”

“ yes sir” she replied standing up right.

Nadia turned to see a handsome young man standing just a few inches away on her side, their eyes both locked in each other.

“ do I know you from somewhere” Richard asked trying to remember where he has met her, the beautiful face that was staring at him was so familiar, he quickly assess her with his eyes, she was indeed beautiful with everything in place, he was brought back from his thought by the fake cough of Tracy the receptionist.

“ sir”

“ yeah, can I get the file that I gave you yesterday please”

“ sure” she replied, quickly searching for the file but not without stealing gales at Nadia with a bad stare.

Nadia decided to forget what she so wanted to say and head out from the company, as she turned to leave Richard voice stopped her, she turned back to face him.

“ you really look familiar”

She smiled at him, she was sure he must have come across her blog or some social media, this often happens to her whenever she is at a public place, but she wasn’t ready for any celebrity greetings right now.

“ I don’t think so, you might be mistaken”

“ oh, forgive me than”

“ on problem “ with this she turned and started to walk away, Richard watched as she walked away still admiring her beauty, Tracy gave him the file, thanking her he turned to go back to his office, just as he got to the elevator he stopped with a half as something click in his brain

“yes” he said to himself, he just remembered where he has seen the beautiful face, he hurriedly walked back to the reception desk.

“ the lady of now, what was she doing here”

Tracy was surprised that Richard was asking about her, maybe he has grow interest in her, she thought.

“ tell me” he sounded so inpatient

“ she came to look for Mr Donald, but she was without an appointment “


“ what”

“ I think that’s Mr Donald…..” He stopped himself immediately, he wouldn’t want to be the one to gossip about what he knows,

“ Mr Donald who”

She asked anxiously

“nothing” with that he ran out of the hall in search for her, he went into the parking lot as she must have come with a car, just as fate has it, he saw her just about opening her car.

Nadia was disappointed that she couldn’t meet Ethan, she just didn’t want to take the word of Tracy seriously, she was just about to opened her car when a voice stopped her by calling her name.

“ miss Nadia William” Richard called out wanting to be sure he got the right person.

Nadia turned round she saw the same guy she saw not quite long, he knew her after all.

“ you are Miss Nadia William, right” he asked as soon as he got close to her

There was no point lying she smiled nodding in agreement

“ I was told you want to see Mr Donald”

“ yes, but I am not with any appointment, I have to take one before I will be allowed to see him”

“ and the appointment has to be approved, if disapprove sorry”

“ yeah “ she wrapped her arms together, she doesn’t know but it was really awkward at that moment, why was this guy talking with her, she thought, maybe he is hitting on her but she was one that don’t jump into conclusion.

“ forgive my manners, I am Richard “ he said this extending his hand for an handshake, Nadia took his hands smiling

“ am the personal assistant to Mr Donald”

Nadia looked at him with surprise, God is really great, just when she has given up hope, God did his wonderful work.

“ I can take you to him, that’s if you want”

She was taking aback by what she heard

“ you said”

“ I said I can take you to Mr Donald, he will be pleased to see you”

“ really”

“ I think”

Nadia can now understand why Richard was nice to her, of course, he is the personal assistant to Mr Donald, he always knows what happens around Mr Donald

“ shall we”

“ sure, thank you”

Richard responded with a nod.
