My Father’s Desire Episode 10


Edochie was sitting comfortably in his office having a business discussion with his friend Tobenna when Tobenna brought up the issue of Adaobi in their discussion.
“Edochie”, Tobenna called. “I do not like the way you discharged that girl Adaobi. What she did was bad I must say but two of you could have reached a compromise. That girl is homely, lovely and beautiful. I also know that….
“Please,please, Tobe, let us not bring Adaobi into our discussion. I am done with her and that is that! You may leave now since we are through with our discussion for I have many things to do.” Edochie said.
Tobenna apologised and left. Some minutes later, a tall black girl knocked and entered Edochie’s office.

“What do you say your name is?” he asked
“Ugochi, Sir.”
It was then that Edochie really took a good look at Ugochi and realized that she was a beauty to behold.
“I have seen my wife,” he muttered to himself.
“You said what, sir? Ugochi asked.
“No, it is really nothing, but we have to meet another time. Drop your card with me. I will ring you when I am ready,” Edochie replied.
Ugochi left and Edochie vowed not fo let her escape. He grabbed the card Ugochi kept on his table as if it was about to fly away and stored her number in his mobile phone…
