Schooling Mr Bass-Episode 5


“Samantha Penelope Brooke, are you crazy???” Jamie says almost choking on her food, as Samantha relayed everything about her run in with Mr Bass.

“Er..No Jamie I am not crazy, I mean what is wrong with the lot of you. How can I stand there and have him talk to me like that, who the hell does he think he is?’’ Samantha crosses her legs under her, and shoves food into her mouth as her friend stares at her as though she was an alien.

“DURH!!!! Hello!!! He is Jake fxxking Bass, hot, rich, handsome and a frigging Multi-billionaire..I mean..are you crazyyyyyy!!!?’’

Samantha laughs “oh Jamie don’t be too dramatic, okay what did I do wrong?”

“Everything with a capital E, you are lucky you are still working there, in fact how come he didn’t fire your ass, I should slap you for even talking to Mr Bass like that…hawt hawt stuff..damn girl, something is wrong with you, I think Christopher did a number on you. You are on this hating men spree and you are all out to even hate on the innocent and dashing ones, including Mr Bass” her friend pouts

“No I don’t hate all men…just men who are egocentric, proud and pompous , who thinks that all women should bow and lick the ground they walk on, plus men who cheat and lie and who are serial womanizers. I like men, honest men, men who are considerate, loving and all lovey-dovey and mushy. He isn’t classified as such a man, Christopher isn’t either..and my dad isn’t, they are all the same..Men”

Jamie shakes her head “Let us pray, Father please reach down and slap my friend, she sees chocolate creamily..yummy hawt stuff and calls it plain ol’ pizza. Forgive her please, Amen”

Samantha rolls her eyes “PS..I think he is sleeping with his PA”

“Well I would sleep with him if he gave me the chance. Hell a thousand and one women want to sleep with fact the entire world of women want to sleep with him”

“Well I don’t “

“Yes you do.. I mean let’s be honest, don’t you find him attractive and arghh just want to tear his cloths off?”

Samantha thinks for a second “I do admit he is terribly attractive, handsome, exudes class and a strong $3xual appeal, but I also see him as an annoying, condescending bastard. I do not want to tear his cloths off, in fact I don’t even want him close to me. You all can have him, I am too concerned thinking about me to think about men and he is one man who I would never fancy.” she pause

“Can you imagine he threatened me..challenging me and he thinks I would chicken out..nooo!!! I went back into that office, got him his damn food, made sure his cloths were fitted, all of it, I even sat there and watched him until he felt uncomfortable and asked me to leave..and he was like “I need those files on my table first thing in the morning’ Argh!! I wanted to slam my heel into his face. I mean, just because he is Jake Bass, he should learn how to talk and treat women right, the way he threw off the scent of His PA , he really didn’t care about her feelings because he would have wanted to protect it, he is shameless and you all are bunch of dxxkheads for not valuing yourselves more…he is just all about his business, money, class and women..he don’t care about the lot of you”

“Well, we don’t care, we love us some Mr Bass, quit hating” Jamie pouts

“Oh..your lives! Now…I have to get to those damn files. Thank you for bringing me dinner and you should stop living cash for me..”

“Hey, you are welcome. But until you get your first pay…I won’t stop. I mean Christopher cleared you to your last dime, I wonder why you never reported him to the police. Guy was a thief, simple”

“It’s over now, doesn’t matter. I swear I would pay you back”

“you don’t have to, you did a lot for me while we were in little compared to all that but if you insist, you can follow me to that gig later on tonight..”

“Work remember, files..Mr Bass”

“Oh right, you can pay me later. But I have to go and please..don’t get into other run-ins with Mr Bass, he barks when he gets angry, and sometimes he bites”

“Oh I am made of steel Jamie, sadly, I don’t scare easily”

They hug and bade each other good night


Mr Bass alights from his car, the attendant carries his briefcase, then he looks up and sees her walking towards him.

Well well well…

Who says he didn’t know how to tame them.

“Goodmorning Mr Bass” Samantha says, her smile stiff

“Goodmorning Samantha , what’s my schedule today like?”

Oh… I am thinking along the lines of, why don’t you find out for yourself but… I would be nice.

She begins to tell him his schedule as they walk into the  building then up the elevator and out to his floor, Sophie greets him excitedly and then turns away, he stops her.

“Sophie, let Samantha do it, I think she is more than capable”

“But sir, I always get your coffee”

“I know Sophie but I want her to do it…you can tell her the way I like it…so she doesn’t make a mess of things”

Sophie turns to her “ Ok he likes it hot, not stingy, he likes two spoons of..’’

“Milk, one and the half spoon of sugar, and the milk he likes it on the side of the coffee so he can stare it himself, and on Mondays he likes his coffee black, Tuesdays he likes it a little African and then on Fridays he takes it light, so it doesn’t disturb the bourbourn he drinks after work ..did I get it correctly? “ Samantha stares at him

Sophie is surprised “I didn’t tell her that sir, even I am not exactly accurate”

“oh I am very observant, shall I go get your coffee sir while you relax in your office ?’’

He gives her a sly smile and walks away

Samantha rolls her eyes,


Three hours later as the last person leaves his office, his call came through on her desk

“Yes sir”

“What is the time Samantha?”

“A few minutes past 12noon”

“And my lunch?”

“Would be here in 20 minutes”

“Cancel it, I am going out to have lunch, tell Todd to be ready and you wait for me in the car”

“Wait what?”

“Are you deaf Miss Samantha??”

“No obviously I am not deaf but I am just wondering why I have to wait for you in the car when you are going to have lunch”

“An order is an order Samantha..And PA stand for Personal Assistant and you would be personally assisting me all day..even while I have lunch breaks”

He cuts the call

The asshole

A few minutes later she is fuming in the car, some attendant opens the door and he slides in next to her
She doesn’t say anything,

“Todd, my usual place please’

“Yes sir”
