See you on Monday…Titus bid Tricia farewell.
OK!!! See you soon…Tricia replied.
As Tricia was turning her back to wave her hand in bidding farewell to both Titus and Tony, Tony seek for her indulgence and excused Titus to have a private chat with Tricia few distance away from the location where both Tony and Titus were standing.
I will be coming back from work on time today…Tony started conversing with Tricia.
Are we not celebrating your appointment?…Tony asked.
Oh!!!I see but I don’t want to bother you…..Tricia responded.
Leave that aside.It is my responsibility to handle that free of charge from my purse….Tony continued.
Ok!!! I will be waiting and expecting you on time at home…Tricia responded.
Ok!!! See you later…Tricia concluded.
Within a jiffy, Tricia wave down a cab,the cabbie parked by her side and she hopped inside and within few minutes, Tricia disappeared into the thin air with the cabbie.
My guy….Titus started gisting with Tony as they were heading towards the company’s gate.
What is that?What are you insinuating bro?…Tony continued.
Nothing at all…Titus replied.
Both continued approaching the entrance of the company to get settled down for the remaining few hours.
Suddenly, as they were heading towards the entrance of the Administrative block where they both have their duty post.Titus started conversation once again with Tony.
Now, I confirmed that you haboured an angel in your house, Tony.She is damn beautiful and pretty.I can see the reason why the Human Resource Manager pointed to the fact that she is beautiful the other time.
Is she that beautiful?…Tony asked.
I was caught motionless and speechless early this morning at the dinning when we were both preparing to go to work this morning.When she was asking me a particular question, I was lost in thought starring at her pretty face and the cloth she put on made her to look much more prettier than the first time I met her.Truly, she is beautiful.
I don’t think I have any feelings for her at all but I just want to take her as a friend and as a sister.My relationship with her as promised earlier is going to be platonic, no string will be attached.Though, she is a good girl that is well trained and she is damn hardworking.
Hmmmm…..Why can’t you go out with her bro?….Titus asked further.
Titus, the feeling isn’t there at all…Tony responded.
My mind is still with the damsel I want to look out for at the choir stand in the church on sunday.She is also beautiful and I have feelings for her but I am not interested in having any relationship with Tricia.Even with that,are we sure she is not engaged in a relationship?I don’t think a beautiful girl like this will not have a handsome-rich dude running after her and disturbing her in order to walk down the isle with her.
She is too beautiful to be single bro…Tony concluded.
Ok!!!Time shall tell bro…Titus replied.
At this point, both Tony and Titus separated at the entrance of the Administrative block and head straight to their duty post to complete works that they left in arrears.
See you bro…Tony bid Titus goodbye.
See you too.Let me go quickly to complete the report I started since morning.My boss is on my head and he will soon be shouting at the top of his voice asking for the report….Titus concluded.
See you tomorrow bro….
THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE TEN—CHAPTER ONE.
How much is your money?…Tricia asked the cabbie.
Just #100…Cabbie answered.
Ok!!!Take your money.
As Tricia alighted from the cab infront of the house, she was so elated with what happened to her today and she rushed down as she opened the front door into the living room.
Tricia was filled with deep thought of the present reality on ground.She was just extremely happy that she has gotten what she desire for the moment.Though, she was not fully happy that she is not happy that she is yet to have her own apartment so that she can be entitled to her privacy fully.
While she was deep in thought,her mind went straight to the kind gesture Tony offered her by accomodating her without any string attached to it but the kind of countenance exhibited by Tony while they were on the dinning in the morning kept hunting and haunting her but she couldn’t fathom the rationale behind what really happened and she didn’t want to engage Tony asking about what really happened.
Anyway, Tricia got settled expecting Tony for the celebration Tony promised her in the course of the day.
Around 4:30PM,Tricia heard a knock on the front door.
KO!KO!!KO!!!….There was a knock on the door.
Tricia jumped on her feet to attend to the knocking.
Who is it?….Tricia probed.
Is Tony…Kindly open the door…Tony commanded her in a soft voice.
Ok!!!Tricia opened the door wide for Tony to have a thoroughfare.
How are you Tricia….Tony replied.
I am cool and good….Tricia replied.
Are you set for the celebration….Tony asked further.
Yea!!! I am set, just let me go inside and freshen up…Tricia requested .
No problem…Just be make it snappy.I will be waiting for you…Tony replied.
After about 30 minutes of waiting for Tricia to freshen up and dress up,Tony could not believe his eyes what he was beholding at the moment.Tricia looked more attractive in the party gown she decked herself with and he find it hard to believe that he has been harbouring an angel in his apartment for the pass days.
And for the first time, Tricia has been staying with Tony, Tony complimented her beauty.
Hmmm…..Can I compliment you?….Tony asked.
No problem….You are free….Tricia replied.
At this point, Tricia started blushing and feel shy, though it caught her unaware.
You look beautiful, alluring,charming and attractive….Tony commented.
Thanks for the compliment..Tricia responded.
Can we proceed now?…Tony asked.
They both exit the apartment and took a cabbie to a nearby joint within the neighborhood to dine and wine in celebration of the the letter of appointment Tricia received today.
While they sat down, both Tricia and Tony broke the ice and they were able to overcome the shyness and silence that has made both of them to be world apart.
How are you,Tricia…Tony asked.
I am fine and cool….Tricia answered.
I am happy that you got the appointment letter and the only thing I could tell you is to give your best to the job so that it can be possible for my company to retain you at the end of the one-year NYSC service.
Yea…I will give my best ..Tricia answered.
They both enjoy the moment they had together and they relaxed throughout their stay in the neighborhood joint with music blaring hard and a lot of soft music to entertaining the visitors having fun.
At 9:00pm, they both left the joint and stroll back home together.
When they got back home, they both went straight into their different rooms and they slept off.
