BETTY: onihaxy, come closer, let me see the caller
ME: ***removed the phone from my pocket with fear and I drew closer to betty**** checked the screen,
BETTY: ***looked at the screen*** bimpe!!!, who is bimpe?

ME: oooooh bimpe, its your sister inlaw
BETTY: same aunty bimpe?, how come?, when did you guys exchanged numbers? And since when have you guys been exchanging calls?. And you never made me to be aware of all this?
ME: *** depressed **, please will you let me pick this call before answering your questions please?
BETTY: ok, Go ahead?
ME: ok ****placed the phone on my ear*** hello.
BIMPE: ** whispered*** how far? Where are you?
ME: **looked at betty in the eyeball*** I’m on my way home, betty is even here with me.
BIMPE: ok, I just wanted to thank you for everything. Henry also said he so much appreciate you and he sent his greetings.
ME: ok ma, thanks so much ma for the meal, thanks for hosting me, and my regards to your husband ma.
BIMPE: you are welcome, please pass the phone to betty.
ME: ok, ***gave the phone to betty****
Bimpe and betty were conversing on phone with betty laughing out loud, their conversation lasted for about 12minutes before betty handed over the phone to me.
ME: hello ma,
BIMPE: **whispered*** talk to you later.
ME: ok ma, take care.
Betty and I continued strolling
BeTTY: onihaxy, you haven’t answered my question.
ME: ooh, about bimpe right?
BETTY: yes
ME: ok, it happened the day she dropped me off after I donated blood to daniella, she asked me for my number that she would like to call me when I reach home safely.
BETTY: and you didn’t bother to tell me about it?
ME: I’m sorry, I never took it as a serious issue.
BETTY: really?, then I will get your friends or brother number behind you and be calling them behind you since its not a serious issue.
ME: ok love, I’m so sorry, please forgive me dear. Alright, let me delete her number in your presence, I will never talk with her again.
BETTY: onihaxy, don’t get me wrong, I never said you shouldn’t call anybody or talk to anyone. But atleast, you should let me know when you started it, for integrity sake.
ME: ***pecked and hugged her*** ok dear I’m so sorry.
BETTY: its ok, let me know when you reach home.
Betty stopped at the bus stop, I took a bus back to lekki gate while she returned home. I took a bus from there to oshodi and finally to mushin. I was thanking my stars that I wasn’t exposed today.
I got home at few minutes to ten, I called betty, spoke with her on phone and told her to extend my regards to bimpe and henry. About 15minutes later, I got a call from bimpe.
ME: hello bimpe,
BIMPE: onihaxy, how are you?
ME: I’m good.
BIMPE: what happened today?, why calling my secret line while betty was with you?,
ME: I’m sorry, betty caught me and she said she wanted to know who owns the line.
BIMPE: what!!!!!!, how?, when and where?
ME: she read your text on my phone when she went upstairs with it.
BIMPE: onihaxy!!!!!!!. How can you be so dumb and careless?, why will you leave such text on your phone?, can’t you hide it or archive it?, or can’t you just be a man and defend the text or cook up something else?.
ME: ehn?
BIMPE: yes, you even have the mind to call me in her presence, what if I wasn’t smart enough to calculate the situation and remained silent when you called? Only God knows what would have happened by now. Your type can’t keep two relationships successfully. Haba!!!.
So what happened next?
ME: asking me what happened next after insulting me?, you are not serious*** hanged up***
]Bimpe continued to call me that night but I didn’t pick up. I woke up the following morning and got her message on whatsapp begging me to forgive her for been rude and also encouraged me to be more careful next time. I replied her and we had several minutes of chats thereafter. I had my bath, dressed up, spoke with betty on phone and departed from lagos at around 10am to ado ekiti and resumed work at the water factory on monday.
Two weeks later, betty called me and told me that they have been making plans to fix me into the family company but she was against it. I asked her why?, she said how come the same woman who once said onihaxy was a criminal and ran away with his former boss money is now saying onihaxy should be employed by the family, betty also said I won’t be respected and might be remotely controlled around by her family.
I tried changing her mindset but betty still insisted that I must not work with them, I had no choice than to reject the offer even when henry called me officially to inform me about the family decision. Three months passed away, there was no call from the interior decorating firm. After several hope of getting the marketing job. I was at home one weekend when she called me.
ME: hello dear,
BETTY: hi onihaxy, how is work going?
ME: work is going fine.
BETTY: onihaxy, I have something to discuss with you, I don’t know if you will be interested.
ME: what is that dear?
BETTY: concerning the marketing job, I’m still in-touch with the man and he said you guys will be called when the new showrooms under construction are ready.
ME: ok, how soon will that be?
BETTY: can’t really say, but it should in three to four months time.
ME: ok dear
BETTY: but I have a guy at an outsourcing firm here in lekki,
ME: ok
BETTY: he said they are outsourcing for a bank who needed temporary staffs for a three and half month project. So I don’t know if you will be interested.
ME: its cool, how much is the pay?
BETTY: he said 70k
ME: for the whole project?
BETTY: no, its the monthly payment.
ME: what will now happen after the project? Will I loose the job?
BETTY: he said there is a tendency that you might be absorbed to be a permanent contract staff depending on your performance at the bank. And incase you are dis-engaged, the marketing job should be ready by then.
ME: no problem, its cool then, how soon will it be?
BETTY: I will text your details to him today, so you might get a call any moment from now.
ME: ok dear, thanks so much.
BETTY: you are welcome dear. Talk to you later.
After betty’s call, I had a chat with segun concerning the new development, he said its ok and he encouraged me to take the risk and move ahead. He later asked me about my property in Bimpe’s possession that I promised to discussed with him. I cooked up an excuse and changed the topic for him.
The following week, I was on my seat on thursday morning when I received a text to come and pick my offer letter at lekki by 9am the following day. I was like me? Offer letter? Without any test and interview?.
