“I apologise about today,” he said.
“Sir?” Amanda said, pretending to be confused.
Desmond gulped down the remaining beer. He tried picking another one but found out there isn’t any more. He sighed rested his head on the couch.
“Get me more beer,” he said.
“Sir I think there’s none left,” Amanda said.
“Yes sir,” Amanda said.
“But I need more alcohol.” Desmond said.
Amanda stretched hers to him. “Then have this one left, I only drank a little from it,” she said.
Desmond collected it and gulped.
“I apologize for today Amanda,” he repeated.
“Why why are you apologizing sir?” she asked.
He looked at her and Amanda’s hear raised when he placed his left hand on her shoulder.
‘Calm down Amanda, calm down… he’s just drunk.’ she tried calming herself.
“For not believing you. You are not leaving right?” he asked.
Amanda inhaled. “No, I’m not. I have to stay to take care of Odeya.” she said.
He smiled in the drunken way, “yea yeah that’s thoughtful of you. You have to stay to take care of Odeya. If you want, I will increase your salary.” he said.
He removed his hand from her shoulder and finished the remaining beer.
“Ah I will be going upstairs now.. I’m so sleepy.” he said and tried to get up but fell back.
“Sir, are you okay?” Amanda asked as she stood up.
“I don’t think I am.. Can you help me up?” he asked and stretched out his hand to her.
Amanda grabbed it and tried pulling him up but she couldn’t.
“Sir, I think you should give me your left hand too,” She said.
Desmond stretched his right hand to her and Amanda grabbed both hands and tried again, she succeeded in pulling him to his feet but being so drunk, he dropped himself on her and both of them landed on the floor.
“Ahh, that hurt,” Amanda said as she felt the pain on her head. She had hit her head on the tiled floor but fortunately, it wasn’t hard but there was something much worse than that; Desmond was on top her with his head resting on her chest.
Amanda gasped and her heart beat raised.
Many dirty thoughts ran through her mind but she immediately slapped them off.
“Sir,” she called, hitting him. “Sir, you are..you are lying on my body.” but she got no answer. Desmond was fast asleep.
Amanda sighed. “What do I do now.”
After staring at the situation for awhile, she gathered her strength and pushed him out of her body. She got up and exhaled.
“He can’t sleep on the floor…what do I do.” she sighed and looked around.
At the center of the sitting room where the table stood is a large-circle brown and white Rug. Amanda had no other choice, she walked to the table, pushed it off from the rug. She walked back to Desmond and dragged him to the rug which luckily contained him.
She rushed upstairs to his room, took a pillow and the bed duvet and walked back to the sitting room.
She knelt down, raised his head up and placed it on the pillow. Then covered him up with the duvet.
“I can’t believe I did this.. How’s he going to feel when he wakes up? Whatever, my heart is beating so fast. I need water,” she said and ran towards the kitchen.
Lady Monica smiled from where she hid. She had woken up minutes ago and when she had noises, she opened her door to see Amanda come out from her son’s room with a pillow and duvet.
“This is how it all start, just like in the movie..” she said with a smile and placing her hands on her chest, she giggled and tiptoed away, back into Odeya’s room.
Amanda drank a good quantity of water and dropped back the cup.
“What do I do now?” she asked herself. Oh, she have to take away those beer cans and then go to bed.
She took a trash nylon and walked out of the kitchen back to the sitting room.
She stared at Desmond for awhile then picked the cans into the nylon. She dropped them in the kitchen bin and when she came back, Desmond had kicked the duvet off his body.
“What? is he such a bad sleeper or is it cos he’s drunk? Tch..” She said, picked the duvet and covered it back on him.
“You better don’t kick it off again,” she said and walked away but not without looking back few times.
Immediately she entered her room, she fell on her bed and smiled but the smile vanished and she hit her cheek.
“What’s wrong with me? Why I’m I smiling? What’s there to smile about?” she asked herself then covered herself with the duvet.
“I can’t believe today, let’s see how tomorrow will be,” she breathed out and closed her eyes for sleep but that didn’t come quickly.
She was filled with thoughts. Thoughts about Desmond, Gold, Lady Monica’s plan and Odeya..
She fell asleep two hours later.
Amanda woke up early even though she slept late. The time was 6:20am.
As she brushed her teeth, everything that happened yesterday ran through her mind.
She needed to call Chioma and ask about Gold and how it went.
She wondered how she’s going to face Desmond after what happened last night.
‘He might not even remember anything because he was drunk. Do I have to be the one to think a bout it. What’s there to think about anyways, it’s not like there was anything serious that happened.’
Amanda washed her mouth and her face.
When she walked out to the corridor, she checked Odeya’s room and saw that Odeya and Lady Monica are still asleep.
She closed back the door and got to Desmond’s room.
‘Should I check if he’s in?’ she thought. Before she could resist, her hand had grabbed the doorknob and the door had opened a little, she peeped in but there was no Desmond in the room.
“Does it mean he’s still asleep in the sitting room?” she wondered closing the door back and hurried downstairs.
Getting downstairs, there on the rug was Desmond with the duvet almost off his body.
Amanda breathed out.
What will she do now? Wake him up or leave him? What if Odeya and Lady Monica see him here, it won’t look good at all.
“I have to wake him up,” she said and walked to him and squatting down, she stared at him for a moment, admiring his handsomeness and the way he slept. She was about to call him when he turned and his leg hit her on the head and rested on her shoulder.
“Ahh!” she groaned and removed his leg from her shoulder.
“What’s wrong with him?” she sighed and rubbed her head.
He raised his leg again but Amanda was quick to grab it and she half yelled. “Sir!”
She held the leg. “Wake up sir, it’s morning.”
His mouth moved then his eyes slowly opened and landed on Amanda’s own then slowly went to his leg and Amanda’s grip on it.
Amanda quickly dropped it and stood up.
“Good morning sir. I think you should go upstairs and continue.” Amanda said and turned to leave.
“What were you doing with my leg?” he asked, halting her.
“You hit me with it and was about hitting me again so I had no other choice than hold it, i’m sorry for that,” She said.
Desmond sat up. “I’m sorry I did but why i’m I here?” he asked, confused.
‘I said it that he won’t remember anything.’
“Sir, you drank a lot last night and couldn’t go upstairs.” Amanda answered and tried taking another step but he asked, “What about my pillow and duvet. How did he get here, you brought it?”
Amanda breathed out. “Yes sir.”
“How did you know I got drunk?” he asked.
‘He don’t remember a thing.’ she sighed.
“I was going to the kitchen and you called me to have a drink too.” Amanda answered.
“Excuse me sir,” Amanda said and hurried away to the kitchen. She was very hungry.
“How did that happen?” Desmond wondered.
He got up and picked the pillow and the duvet. He saw the table and slapped his forehead.
“Gosh this is crazy..” he said and hurried upstairs. Getting to the corridor, he saw his mom.
He jumped back with fright. She caught him.
“Son, how was your night?” she asked, filled with smiles.
“I don’t know, I guess yours was fine,” Desmond said and walked pass.
“You should be thankful to Amanda. You could have slept on the cold floor if she wasn’t there, I’m happy you are fine.” she said.
Desmond had no idea what to say.
“How’s Odeya?” he asked.
“She’s still asleep,” She said.
He opened his door, walked in and closed it back.
Lady Monica smiled and headed downstairs.
Desmond dropped the pillow and duvet. sitting down at the edge of the bed, he sighed.
“What if I said some things I shouldn’t last night and she heard them all? I feel like I said some things I shouldn’t. Gosh what do I do… I’m so messed up… I was so down. I feel disappointed with myself.”
“Hello this is Amanda,” Amanda said into the phone.
“Amanda, Odeya’s nanny?” Chioma asked.
“Yes. How did it go yesterday?” Amanda asked.
“We found the native doctor. He said we have to bring 2million naira for him to appeal to his god to give him solution. He said if the money isn’t brought by tomorrow, we will loose her,” Chioma said.
“Yes. He said his god give different solutions according to the person’s heart but for the solution to work, she will have to get Desmond’s sincere forgiveness.” Chioma said.
“That means there’s only today to get the money,” Amanda said.
“The money isn’t the problem. It’s Desmond. He might never forgive her. He sacked my brother, his secretary who connected him to Gold. He’s really hurt and might not have the heart to forgive my brother talk more of Gold. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to loose my friend. I’m sad for my brother too, I never knew that Gold could do such a thing,” Chioma said.
Amanda was speechless. She had no idea what to say. It was saddening.
She felt sad and worried for Gold and Chioma’s brother.
“Are you there?” Chioma asked.
Amanda exhaled. “Yes I am. It’s okay. We will talk to him. I believe he will change his mind. We have to save Gold and get your brother back to his position. I will try my best.” she said, not trusting her words.
“Really, thank you so much Amanda. I’m sure Gold will regret everything she did. Please help me, I don’t want to loose my friend.” Chioma begged.
“I will do my best. You won’t loose her. But where is she now?” Amanda said.
“She’s in my house. He told us to take her back and bring her tomorrow with the money.” Chioma said.
“It’s okay. I will call you back later okay,” Amanda said.
“Okay. Thank you Amanda,”
The call ended and Amanda sighed.
“I don’t even trust my words. How I’m I going to convince him to forgive Gold. He’s my boss. How I’m I going to do that?” she asked herself.
“You can do that by trying,” someone said at the door and Amanda quickly turned to see it’s Lady Monica.
“Ma’am.. Good morning.. You you scared me.” Amanda said.
Lady Monica walked in. “I’m sorry. You sound like a brave woman but you seem to doubt your braveness. You want to help Gold but why?”
“She killed no one, so she don’t deserve death. She deserve to live and regret what she did and turn a new leaf.” Amanda said.
Lady Monica smiled. “You are right Amanda. I would help you talk to Desmond. There’s no time left.”
“Thank you ma. He sacked his secretary too.”
“He sacked and unfriended his secretary and best friend. This sound like too much. We should do something right?” Lady Monica asked.
“I told you to call me mom,” she said.
“I’m sorry. I just forgets all the time.” Amanda said.
“It’s okay. Have you called your mother?”
“No, I will call her today. I don’t think she needs to know about yesterday,” Amanda said.
“Well she knows already, I told her everything last night.” Lady M said.
Desmond laid on the bed, in thoughts when the door opened and Odeya walked in.
“Dad, are you okay?” She asked.
Deya, come.. I’m fine. How are you too?” Desmond said and sat up.
Deya got to the bed and Desmond cuddled her.
“I’m fine dad. I had a dream,” She said.
“What dream?” Desmond asked.
“I saw mom. She came and took me,” Deya said.
“I miss mom,” Deya said.
“It’s okay. I’m here for you baby,” he said and stroked her hair.
Breakfast was eaten in silence. Each person with his and her thoughts.
Amanda was in thoughts on how to talk to Desmond about Gold.
Lady Monica was in thoughts on how to help too and also her plan to take an offering to church and pray harder for her son and Amanda to fall in love and get married.
Desmond was in thoughts on how to get over the mess that happened to him and how to make Odeya stop talking about his mom.
Odeya had nothing much to think.
She was happy Gold is gone though she felt worried she was in a bad condition. She hopes she gets well.
Again, she felt her mom is going to come for her.
Well she didn’t want to leave without her dad. She want her dad to leave with them too. Let them be a happy nuclear family like they once were. She would take her nanny along too.
Did you just read Odeya say she will take her nanny along?🙄🙄
Even if she’s so smart. She’s still five and think funny sometimes. Imagine that?😂
