I got home in the night after work and I was flashing back to what happened previously in the day, I was so happy that I went out on a date with my boss and it was as if I won a jackpot. I picked up my phone and logged on to whatsapp to chat with segun.
ME: hi segun
SEGE: how far onihaxy.
ME: I dey jare. Something happened at work today?
SEGE: really?, oya gist me.
ME: I was on my seat when funmi called me and I went to her office. She said she wanted to send me on an errand to get food for her.
ME: then I told her that I would buy it and pay from my purse just like you advised, then she said I should rather take her out for lunch instead of buying a takeaway since I would be paying for it.
SEGE: waoooooooo. So what happened next?
ME: we drove out to one big restaurant and hanged out for lunch. The total cost of our expenses was close to 4k. The money pained me oooooo, because that amount was my weekly budget.
SEGE: don’t look at it from that angle. Instead, look at it from the angle of investment. Atleast you have earn a class from her with that simple approach. And besides, how much is 4k compared to the 30k she gave you for rent like 3 weeks back?.
ME: hmmmmmmm. you are right.
SEGE: yes na. So what were the discussions you guys had during the outing?, or was it just eating?.
ME: funny. She asked of my girlfriend.
SEGE: girlfriend kee?, has she met betty before?
ME: no oooo. She asked in this manner “how is your girlfriend?, tell me about her”
SEGE: hahahahahahaha. Na interview be that oooo. So what was your response?
ME: I told her I don’t have anyone at the moment.
SEGE: correct boy. She didn’t ask why?
ME: she asked and I told her that I was heartbroken 8 months back and since then, I decided to stay out of relationship.
SEGE: that’s not too bad sha.
ME: she asked if I loved or had feelings for anyone inside the bank.
SEGE: omo see practical question. So what was your reply?
ME: I told her I don’t have feelings for anyone except someone who happened to be my superior.
SEGE: chaiiii, see good strategic answer. Correct boy. One bottle of Alomo for you for that response. You don dey blend be that.
SEGE: what did she say after your response?
ME: she smiled and changed topic.
SEGE: it shows that she already understood where you were going but she doesn’t want to be too forward.
SEGE: yeah. She just wanted you to be man enough to push further.
ME: man enough?, she said something like that when I was in her office.
SEGE: really?. What happened and why did she say so?
ME: when I said I would go to the eatery, buy the take away from my purse and bring it to her in her office, she said I wasn’t man enough because I was supposed to take her out and not to go out and bring takeaway. That was when we decided to go out together.
SEGE: correct madam, she already gave you all the code, she just wanted you to be man enough to decode it.
SEGE: yes na. Don’t worry; we will take about that later.
ME: ok boss.
SEGE: were you the one that drove the car?
ME: no ooooooo.
SEGE: why? Haven’t you started driving the car Betty gave you?
ME: no, I’m still learning. But in two to three weeks’ time, I should start taking the car out after getting my temporary license.
SEGE: it’s ok. How is your wife?, hope you are hearing from her?
ME: who?, bimpe?
SEGE: you no well, wetin concern me with that stupid girl.
SEGE: are you guys still talking?
ME: no ooo. It’s been long. Since that time Betty saw her watch in my room.
SEGE: ok oooo. Thank God you are now taking to advice.
ME: yes boss.
SEGE: I was referring to Betty. Hope she is fine?
ME: yeah. We always do video chat on Skype and chat almost every day.
