The alarm from Amanda’s phone woke her up from her dreamful sleep.
She opened her eyes, rubbed them and a smile appeared on her face as she recalled the dream she had about Desmond and her.
“Would something like that even happen?” she chuckled and hurried into the bathroom to brush up.
Soon, she was in the kitchen making breakfast and Odeya’s lunch.
As she did them, she wondered what Desmond’s reaction would be when he regains himself.
“I hope this doesn’t cause issues with him and his mom,” She said.
After being done in the kitchen, she went upstairs to prepare Odeya for school.
Desmond rubbed his eyes open and he felt really weak.
Instantly he recalled about the previous night. He had gotten drunk but how did he get to his room.
Okay, he recalled. Amanda had caught him while he was about falling.
“She brought me here?” he asked himself and raised his hand to check his finger. It’s been bandaged.
“She did it,” he said with a sigh..
He rolled the duvet off his body and struggled his still weak body out of the bed.
He glanced at his finger again before entering the bathroom to prepare for work.
(About an hour later🕐)
Amanda was feeding Odeya cos she told her to.
Desmond was seen soon coming downstairs in black suit and his briefcase.
He walked to the dinning table and of course, Amanda avoided to make eye contact with him while Desmond was surprisingly feeling a little uneasy as he settled on the seat facing his daughter.
“Good morning sir. How was your night?” Amanda gasped when she asked him that. What came into her?
The spoon she was about giving Odeya hung close to Odeya’s mouth and Odeya after waiting for few seconds collected the spoon.
While at the other hand, Desmond was scared he’d stutter so he cleared his throat before answering “It it was good”
Amanda sighed within.
She wondered what he’d say in his mind.
Maybe he’d say ‘is she trying to remind me that she helped me out last night?’
Oh my gawd! What have she done!
She tried to collect the spoon but Odeya shook her head. “I will feed myself.”
“O okay.” Amanda said and when she turned, her eyes of course fell on Desmond and she saw that he was looking at her.
She stood up and quickly hurried to the kitchen.
Desmond breathed out.
“Dad are you alright?” Deya asked him, noticing his uneasiness.
“Yes I’m fine dear, eat up” he said and carried his tea cup to drink.
What do he do?
He felt like he is supposed to thank her for helping him last night and treating his wound too but he wondered how he should do that.
“Dad why are you staring at the kitchen door?” Deya asked Desmond thus making him realize that he’s been actually staring at the kitchen doorway.
He quickly turned his eyes back to his cup of tea.
“No, it’s nothing.” he said and sipped from his tea.
“Dad. What happened to your finger?” Deya asked, just noticing the band on his index finger.
Desmond looked at the finger and wondered what lie he’s going to tell to his daughter.
If only he remembered and practiced what he’s going to say.
“I..it’s a little cut.” he said.
“How did you had it, did it hurt?” she asked.
“It’s.. It’s from the knife. I was trying to cut an apple last night. It doesn’t hurt.” he lied.
“Sorry dad,” she said.
“Thank you baby” Desmond said and exhaled.
“Oh gosh, I cant look at his eyes. It reminds me of the dream.” Amanda mumbled to herself in the kitchen.
She sat on the breakfast bar and placed her head on the table.
“What is going on” she asked herself.
Five minutes later, she walked back to the dinning with Deya’s lunch box.
The duo were both done with their breakfast.
Desmond on seeing Amanda, stood up immediately and pecked Deya.
“I’m leaving now baby. Take care of yourself.” he said.
“bye dad,” Deya said.
Desmond grabbed his briefcase and he wondered why he had to take a glance at Amanda and Amanda wondered why she had to look up at him at that moment thus their eyes met.
Desmond turned and walked away while Amanda picked up the dirty dishes and cup.
“Are you worried about my dad, nanny?” Deya asked.
“Huh?” Amanda looked at her.
Deya said nothing again and Amanda carried the dishes to the kitchen.
‘Yes Deya, I am. I’m worried that I’m in love with your dad. I’m worried about so many things.’
She dropped the dishes and walked back to the dinning. “Let’s go.” she said.
Amanda waved Odeya ‘bye’ as she walked to her seat.
Her classmates were all happy to see her. It felt like a celebrity and her fans.
Amanda waved a bye to her and finally left.
As they drove back home, Peter kicked up a conversation.
“Amanda, so how is the gold digger?”
“Don’t call her that please. I haven’t spoken with her friend today. I would do that once I get home to know the situation. For her to get freed, she needs Mr Desmond’s sincere forgiveness.” Amanda said.
“Nawa oh.. How can such a beautiful lady indulge herself in such thing! Wasn’t it the same day we heard the news about the woman who had been controlling her husband for ten years?” He asked.
“Yes it was. I feel sad for her. I hope he forgives her soon or she might not be able to regain herself” Amanda said.
“I hope so but it won’t be easy.” he said.
“Yeah it won’t.” Amanda said.
Getting home, Amanda walked into the house and straight upstairs. She always have this habit of forgetting her phone since there’s nothing really important that she does with it except receiving and making calls. Though she’s on Facebook and WhatsApp but she hardly log into them.
She grabbed the phone from the bed and made a call to Chioma.
It rang but wasn’t picked.
She called again and it was picked.
“Hello Amanda, sorry I was in the bathroom,” Chioma said.
“No, it’s no problem. How had it been? Was the money taken to him?” Amanda asked.
“Yes of course, it was. She won’t die like the native doctor said and that she will be cured which wont really cure her completely without Desmond’s forgiveness. After the sixty percent cure we can take her home and try to bring Desmond to her and make him forgive her.” Chioma said.
Amanda exhaled. “At least it’s nice to hear that she won’t die and also she’d be cured even if it isn’t completely. We are trying our best to make him change his mind. Once he do, he will forgive her.” she said.
“I’m counting on you Amanda. Please help my friend,” Chioma said.
“I will try my best.” Amanda said.
“Thank you” Chioma said.
After the call dropped, Amanda sat on the edge of her bed and sighed.
“How do I go about this.. This is pretty hard.” she said.
At Desmond’s office, Standing in front of Desmond was Henry who wore his neatly ironed black Suit but his face held sadness.
“I’m sorry Desmond. I had no idea what she truly was. I had always thought of her as a good girl. You can’t do this to me Desmond. It is me, Henry. I understand I’m connected to this but please pardon me.” Henry pleaded.
Desmond threw him the sack letter.
“There’s no point pleading. I can’t take back my words. Leave my office Henry.” Desmond said.
“Fine.. I will call the security” Desmond said and picked up the telephone, dialed and placed it at his ear.
“Yes, hurry over to my office. There’s someone you need to take out ” he said.
“Desmond, no I can’t leave this way. I still want to work for you please. Let’s talk things out. We are best friends,” Henry said.
“I think that was the mistake I made, making my best friend my secretary. I should have known that there were consequences like this. Work mode, friend mode. Tch! That was so dumb!” Desmond said.
“Desmond please listen to me.. I’m saying the truth. I was damn curious too on how she was able to win your heart in just two days. I wanted to find out, so also was my sister,” Henry said
The door opened and two securities walked in.
“Get him out of here,” Desmond said.
The securities grabbed Henry.
“No no, let me go. I have to talk to him.. Desmond please don’t do this to me.. Desmonddddd” Henry begged as they dragged him out of the office and closed the door.
Desmond felt tears in his eyes.
He felt like rushing out and bringing him back.
He love Henry since university.
There were course mates and Henry was a great help to him academically while he helped him financially.
They graduated and since he took over his father’s company, he made Henry his secretary and had made out plans of making him the manager in few months time only for this to happen.
He was in deep thoughts when his phone beeped of a message. He hesitantly picked it up and blinked when he saw it’s a message from his daughter’s nanny, Amanda.
His heart skipped instantly.
Amanda had gone to the kitchen to start preparing lunch when she tried making use of the sink but the faucet wasn’t working anymore.
She tried numerous times but no water dropped. She went to I.K who went and tried with his man power but it was the same answer.
“What do I do now, I need to start cooking,” Amanda said.
“I no know oh.. For three years wey I don live here, this kind thing never happen” I.K said.
“Really? Ah.. What will I do now.” Amanda lamented.
“I think you go call Oga tell am.. He go tell us wetin we go do,” I.K said.
‘Call Oga?’ Amanda doesn’t even want to think of that. She’d end of stammering with her heart beating so fast.
There’s another way. Text him.
She picked her phone and began texting him.
“Wetin you dey do?” I.K asked.
“I will explain it better on text message,” She said.
“Ehe? Okay.” I.K said.
Desmond read the message.
💬Hello sir, there’s a problem with my cooking this afternoon. The sink faucet isn’t working. I and I.k have tried a thousand times, but there isn’t even a drop of water. What do I do sir?💬
Desmond breathed out and placed his hand on his chest.
“Was that it? Why did my heart skip like that?” he asked himself.
He clicked on reply message.
💬You don’t have to worry OK?…💬
OK? Is it necessary for him to put OK? He deleted it.
💬…You don’t have to worry about it. I’ll call a plumper right away.💬
he read it over and over again before sending it.
Seconds later, a new message came in. He opened it.
💬Okay sir. I’m be waiting,💬
He clicked on reply message then paused.
“Is there any need to reply her?” he asked himself then dropped the phone. “No, there isn’t
Oh the plumber. He picked the phone and called the man.
After speaking with the man who said he’d be on his way right away, Desmond stared at his phone for awhile before dropping it. Then immediately an idea came into his head.
“What if I use a text message to send my thank you to her? It will feel less awkward right?” he thought.
“He said he would call a plumper,” Amanda said to I.k who was sitting on the breakfast bar.
“Okay na,” I.K said.
“So now, I think you should go back to your post. Thank you,” Amanda said.
I.k sighed. “Ah ah, calm down na. Your blood too dey hot. No body dey come for gate for this time,” he said.
Amanda looked at him with a playful evil eyes.
“What about the plumber?” she asked.
He stood up. “Oh na true oh,”
He hurried out.
Amanda exhaled and clicked on her phone..
Her text message chat with Desmond came on.
She stared at if for a moment before taking off the Apron. She dropped it and walked out of the kitchen to the sitting room.
Is she expecting him to reply her?
What exactly would he reply?
She sat down and was about taking the remote from the table when a text message bumped in.
She rushed it and her heart skipped when she saw it’s from him.
💬I just wanna inform you not to leave the man alone in the kitchen. Stay with him as he works.💬
Is he scared or what?
“Should I reply?” she asked herself but before she could stop herself, she had typed already.
💬I will sir.💬 and sent.
Desmond clicked on the reply message.
He was about to say it..
💬Thank you for treating my wound last night and sorry for giving you such a hard time helping me to my room because i was drunk💬
He read it over and over again before sending it with shaking hand.
He stared at his phone screen, waiting for her reply.
The smile that appeared on Amanda’s lips as she read the message was wider than the river Nile.
“Oh my God.. What do I reply? Should I really reply?” she asked herself but she couldn’t help it.
💬It’s okay sir but be careful not to drink more than one another time..💬
“I hope it isn’t offensive,” She said before sending it.
Desmond chuckled when he read it.
“Okay, I’m a light head I know it.” he said and clicked on reply message.
💬I know the message you are trying to pass already. Of course I only wanted one can but your call made me take three.💬 he sent.
Amanda sighed when she read the message. She quickly clicked on reply.
💬Please don’t be mad at your mom. I promise to leave after my first salary if you want me to.💬
Even though she doesn’t even want to think of leaving here, she had to send it so she did.
Desmond exhaled when he read the message.
“It’s funny but I can’t think of sacking you. It doesn’t even play in my head,” he said.
He had no idea what to reply..
A door came on his office door and then opened. The manager walked in.
“Director, why are we having an urgent meeting?” The Manager asked.
“Cos I sacked my secretary. I’ll need a new secretary,” Desmond said.
Amanda waited for Desmond’s reply but none came.
“Why don’t he want to reply? Does it mean he’s really going to sack me?” she asked herself.
She felt kinda scared about it.
The plumber arrived and immediately got to work.
Amanda stayed with him and because the man was a really good gist man, Amanda felt less bothered about Desmond’s reply.
