Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 6
“You! I remember you! What are you doing here?”
“Mm. Looks like someone has forgotten my name”, he said, smiling. “And it seems you have an amnesia too because I’m sure whoever informed you that I was here also included that I’m a lawyer”.
“Okay Mr smart pants. Did my dad send you here?” She said, taking her seat across him.
“Miss not too smart herself. Of course he sent me”.
“Is this how you’re going to address your client ?” She asked.
“You’re not my client yet. Till you sign this”, he said, handing over the document to her.
“I can’t sign anything till I take my time to read every freaking thing on this paper”.
“Okay, you’re smart after all “.
“If you keep up with that attitude, I’m going to fire you this minute”.
“The same way you fired two of your workers? And I’m not working for you yet till you sign that document”.
“Okay. Then I’m sure you won’t mind if I take my time to read this”.
“Take all the time you need”, he said to her.
“Okay”, she said, reading the papers.
As she read the papers, he just kept staring at her till she caught him.
“If you keep staring at me that way. I’m going to sue for sexual harassment”, she said and he chuckled.
“And I’ll tell the judge that it’s not my fault that my new client was so gorgeous”, he said, smirking.
“You hitting on me again? This is double sexual harassment”, she said to him.
“There’s nothing wrong with appreciating God’s creation and giving compliments”.
“I see. If you don’t mind, I’ll like to get back to reading this”, she said and she read it till she was done.
“I’m done and everything looks okay”, she said, signing it and giving it back to him.
“I’ve got my own rules though”, she said to him.
“Hit me with”.
“Stop trying to hit on me. Or I’m going to fire you”.
“It depends on what you term as ‘hit on’”.
“You know what. Let’s just get done with this”, she said.
“Okay, so tell me everything that happened”, he said to her and the actual meeting began.
At night , the weather was so bad due to the heavy rain pour which also caused a huge storm. Usually, when it happens like this, Sasha, her mum and her siblings spend their time in the main hall by the fireside, telling themselves how their previous days had been. It was a family tradition for them though they all hated it especially when their parents got a divorce.
“Mum, do we really need to do this?” Sally said to her mum, groaning.
“Yes, now sit. Where’s Sasha?”
“She’s not home yet” She’s coming.
“Okay. Then let’s wait for her”.
They waited for a while till Sasha arrived.
“So now that we’re all here, let’s start with Sally”.
“Mum! Just start with Sammy, she’s the one who enjoys this”.
“No, you start, as mum said”, Samantha said, scowling.
“What’s with the face. You know what fine. I’m still dating my boyfriend which has lasted for 2 months now. Unlike some people”, she said and Sasha ignored her.
“And classes are going well, it’s just that the lecturers and some of the students get on my nerves. I can’t wait to be done with school. And dad promised to get me a new car on our birthday and I intend to also buy a house for myself and finally leave you all here and…”
“A house?” Sasha asked.
“Yeah. Unlike you, I want to live alone and have my peace”.
“You are the one who’s been obstructing our peace”, Samantha said to her.
“That’s enough. You’re not moving out of here till you’re done with the school”, Ann exclaimed.
“Why? A lot of my friends live alone”.
“You are not them. And you can’t live alone. What do you know about owning a house? Have you ever paid a bill before?”
“Mum, how will any of us find out if I don’t do it and see how it goes”.
“You think it’s easy. Fine, from today, you’ll start paying any bill concerning you and your room and every other thing you use in the house. You’ll also do your own laundry, cook your own food, clean your place and take care of everything concerning you. If you can do all that? Then I’ll let you get your own place”.
“Mum, that’s cruel. No one does their laundry or any chore in this house. I don’t even know how to cook and if I get my own place, I’ll have someone to do all that”.
“I’ve said my piece. If you want to be able to buy your own place. Then you do that”.
“Fine! For how long?”
“Okay. That’s easy”.
“Alright. We shall see. Sasha tell us yours”.
“Just work, hanging out with friends and finding out the my boyfriend has a baby and a baby mama”.
“Ouch”, Sally said to her.
“As I was saying before a bed bug tried to interrupt. So yeah, we broke up and I’m fine. I’ll also be having a work dinner this weekend. You’re all invited. And yeah, I fired two of my workers and they decided to sue me and I asked dad for one of his lawyers and he sent his new older girlfriend’s son”.
“A new older girlfriend?” They all asked in unison.
“Oops. I thought he had told you all by now”.
“No, he hasn’t”, Samantha said.
“Did you say she was older?” Sally asked.
“Yeah. Just like mum”.
“Hey. I’m not old. I’m still young”, she said, smiling and they all laughed.
“Yeah of course. No woman has got anything on you mum”, Sasha said to her mum.
“Thank you”, she said, smiling. “So it seems like he’s serious with her?” Ann asked.
“That’s what he said but I can’t tell”.
“Mum, I hope you’re fine”, Samantha asked, placing her head on her.
“Yeah. I am”, she said, wrapping her arms around her.
“Okay, let’s continue”, she said and they continued their conversation.
Sasha arrived at work the following morning. She was quite late and when she got to the conference room, Lilian and Ross were having a good laugh.
“Mmmm”, she said, clearing her throat.
“Oh she’s here”, Lilian said, smiling.
“What’s he saying that’s making you laugh so loud?” She asked.
“Oh, he was just telling me about a few things in the world of law”.
“Isn’t that supposed to be boring”? Sasha asked.
“It’s not. I’ll leave you two to have your meeting”, she said to her and was about to leave when Ross interrupted her.
“Hey Lilian What do you say to us continuing this conversation over dinner tonight?” He asked her.
“That’s not possible. We’re having a girl’s night tonight”,Sasha said to him.
“Are we?” Lilian asked.
“Yes. Have you forgotten?”
“If there’s one, I’ll skip. You don’t mind me skipping right?” Lilian asked and Sasha walked closer to her and whispered in her ear.
“He’s married and he’s got lots of kids”, she said to Lilian and she frowned on hearing that.
“I will rather have my girl’s night”, she said and she stormed out of the conference room.
“What did you say to her?”
“Can we just focus on our meeting?” She asked and he nodded.
