Oh he needs him abi? After insulting him , making driving him and being his bodyguard excruciating , now he needs his help?
Ikena picks his glass of beer, drowns it and takes his time leaving the table.
Ordinarily he would have called for backup and in less than a few minutes they would come down with a convoy and bundled the securities up…but his Boss wouldn’t want them to make a scene. But if his son was in trouble all protocol wouldn’t have been observed.
But then again, there was no need troubling the old man, Brian needs a little shaking up, maybe it would bring sense to his otherwise empty head .
So he would wait till they all get outside, and if they weren’t beating him up he would not step in.
Shei he asked him to stay in the car, he would just do just that.
He exists the building in the chaos and heads to the car, he sees them coming out, dragging Brian by the trouser and he kept protesting, he gets into the car and waited
“Ikena!!! Ikena!!!” he heard his name again, he turns to see Brian shouting for him “I will deal with you all, deal with you all” he chanted
Ikena slids out from the car and heads towards the securities, Brian and the waitress who needed her money, the rest had suddenly lost interest on him and had gone back into the building to have a good time
“Pay me jor” the waitress screams
“ Ikena!! Come tell this fools who I am, tell them who my father is’’ he says screaming like a kid for his mummy
Ikena walks to them. “Is there a problem here?”
“Na who you be? This fool refused to pay for the girl he asked to order so we are going to treat him to his fxxkup unless he does”
“How much is it?”
“Twenty thousand naira” she says, Ikena looks at her, it was obvious she was lying but…hey, guess she wants to cash in on the situation
“Twenty thousand for what? Did she order the entire kitchen?’ Brian snaps
“Oga that is what you owe me , all that you are saying na dust” she folds her hands and dances on her feet as one who is impatient
“hmmm, Brian please pay the lady so we leave” Ikena says
“What!! Are you mad, you are my bodyguard that my father has kept to protect me and here you ask me to pay, are you mad, do you know who I am Ikena, I am the son of Andrews and-“
Does he ever say anything other than ‘’Do you know who I am, Jesus to think this was an adult was pitiful” Ikena shakes his head
“E be-like say this guy no understand say we fit burst him blokus for here oh” one of them reaches for it
“Heyyy heyy hey…No! not that, not that!!’’ Brian uses both hands to cover it
The girl and the other secuirty laughs, Ikena is finding it hard to keep a straight face. Oh..this was an epic night. Really epic.
“Then pay us you dey mad? infact sef..na twenty-five ke you dey owe, bring the chedders sharp sharp..my blood dey hot. All this boys coming here forming big boys, today you go learn lesson. No money? fall ground now begin grab am with 200 pushups, then we go strip you, na chucku-chucku belt we go use for your yansh and we go video am for social media, I hear say you be gay, you sef con like old women…hay God!! Infact we no need money again….bring lighter somebody! Eish!!! Bring fuel, make we de go backyard” they began to pull Brian
Brian voice suddenly goes lower “No no you don’t want to do this, Ikena…Ikena Damnit!!!”
Ikena sighs walks up to them, okay..maybe he should step in now before it gets worse, if anyone begins to video Brian now it would be bad.
“Okay, okay, that’s enough now..”
“You won join am?”
Ikena stares at the man who says it ” we would pay you your money..what exactly is being owed, but let go off the young man and I won’t ask again”
The one bigger than the other leaves Brian and walks forward , coming so close to Ikena’s face you would think he want to kiss him
“Guy, jazz down, or else I will break your bones and feed it to my dogs, that chest you have na paper compared to mine “ he pops his chest…”I go tear you nodding now if you no disappear like thief.. who you be?”’
Ikena smiles “You want to know who I am?” Ikena grabs his neck, saying something into his ears.. he leaves him after a few seconds. Maybe a minute
The man steps back, suddenly fear feeling his body.. “guy leave that women wrapper, leave am” he taps his second
“For what? He is owing so he pays, plus wasting our time, who is this fool dressed like men in black wearing shades for night, I go tear him belle“
‘’Guy I say leave the guy, lets go. Lets go you won die? Me I no won die!!’’
“I don’t understand“
His friend grabs him and whispers something into his ears, he suddenly lets go of Brian , stepping away staring at Ikena in fear
“Brian, pay the lady let’s leave’’
Brian adjusts himself seeing that the hefty looking securities are suddenly afraid of Ikena, ‘‘I will do no such thing” regaining his voice, whatever Ikena told them got them scared to pieces, maybe if he told them to lick his shoes they would, maybe he would have their jobs, maybe he would have them run around naked …maybe he should have them bitch slaps themselves “You..you both, I need to see your oga, you both will be fired immediately !!’’ he screams at them
“Brian..pay the lady lets go”
“Ikena be quiet, you don’t talk when I am talking, these fools manhandled me and they have to pay”
Ikena sighs, he thought Brian must have learnt a lesson but it was obvious he would always be a spoilt obnoxious arrogant brat with an ego the size of a melon. He grabs Brian’s hands, puts his hands into his pocket, takes out his wallet…
“Hey how dare you, Give it back , give it back” Brian shouts on Ikena trying to take his wallet back but Ikena is fast, he counts out 10 thousand and throws it to the girl
“I am sure whatever the lady ordered wasn’t up to that but ..keep the change.’’ he turns to Brian “Shall we go?’
“You are fired! Fired! And for ..for disrespecting me infront of this people you are fired. “ then he turns to them..’’you all will be hearing from me”
He adjusts his shirt, with his head held high, he walks to the car and slams the door as he gets in
Ikena makes a quick call , then enters the car.
“you are an asshole you know that right? And assholes gets fired for letting that happen to their boss. You were there all along watching the whole scene and you just stayed there”
“Well Sir, my apologies but you told me to stay in the car and I just assumed I was in the car”
“Consider this your last night working for my father, once I tell him what you have done you are gone. Gone!!”
Brian was furious
“I was preventing you from making a scene Sir, your father doesn’t want that, it would be bad for his image and yours and for the company. If you tell them who you are and how rich you are, the press would carry the news of Mr Andrew’s son, Multi-billionaire was seen in a club..and he was called gay, a cougar and a thief amongst other things, you see why I had to douse the matter amicably? Your face and name would be spattered all over, your father is trying to make you a man not land you the negative light he doesn’t want’’
“Who are you to talk to me that way, who??’’
“No one sir, just your bodyguard stroke driver “
Brian phone rings
“Exactly, tonight you will be nothing, absolutely nothing “ Brian picks the phone “Father you wouldn’t believe what this stupid Bodyguard did to me just now , infront of these people he, wait – what?”
“Brian are you out of your mind? Have you no shame, what manner of child did I raise? how would you want to disgrace me in public, Brain Andrews you are a disappointment “ his father’s voices blares through the phone
“Father if you would just listen to me I will-“
“I do not want to hear jack of what you want to say, nothing. if Ikena hadn’t handled that matter by tomorrow God knows what would have happened, if you wanted a girl why didn’t you just look for a hooker, and but no, you went up there to make a scene”
‘‘Father it was that witch, that bloody witch you employed that-”
“Shut up Brian, I have had enough of your excuses , I have had enough!!!’’
“Father, I will not sit here and let you think I am as irresponsible like that. For the first time I didn’t do shit. I didn’t do none of these things they said, I didn’t, Ikena lied to you and I want him fired and off my detail”
“He is staying right there and if you don’t like it, don’t use the car again. You can trek to work and protect your own damn self”
‘So is that how it is father?’”
“Yes Son, that is how it is. You want to play rebel, I’ll show you how it is being played“
‘’I can’t believe this, I was humiliated tonight , humiliated, me , Brian Andrews!!’’
‘’well for what is worth, I am happy that it took one woman to show you how immature and irresponsible you are. Let me hear another complain Brian, you will not like me one bit, I promise you, Now go home, sleep it off and get to work first thing and apologize to Miss Adora because I know you must have down something to warrant her to react that way and let’s be realistic…you deserved it”
“Father I will not-“
Click. The line was dead.
“Gaddamnit!!!!!!’’ he shouts flinging the phone, it hits the chair and falls on the car floor.
“Shall we leave sir?’’
“Shall we leave sir?”
“I said get out , get out! get out!!!’’ he shouts
“I am sorry sir, but I can’t, this is my job and I am taking you home and your order at the moment isn’t higher than your fathers, you can rake for me , insult me all you want but I am doing my job “ Ikena says putting the car in drive and taking them out of Cubanna and heads home.
Brian is so pissed he is punching the head of the driver’s chair…
All the while, his head had a picture..
And the picture had a face and a name
‘’You just crossed the line you witch, Game on”!!!
I yawn getting into my house.. the smile on my face had been there since i left Cubana, I had watched them from the corner as the ladies began to throw shades at him, then I waited till they dragged him outside and some security guards threatening to burst his balls and I saw fear in his eyes
I was laughing so hard that Wilson Okon was staring at me funny
“Madam, weitin happen, why you dey laugh like that were don sniff laughing gas , abi dem drop am inside there?”
I kept laughing, holding my tummy and pointing ..
“Oh heavens, not so untouchable now is he, Pathetic fool, let’s see him get out of this one now’’
“Erm, who ma?” Wilson stretches his neck trying to look
“Oh no one worth stressing about, take me home Wilson, today is a good day finally”
As he drops me home , I head into the shower slipping out from my yellow dress
Atleast he recognized I had a banging body, not like those half- baked girls there.
Me a witch? Well i’ll take a hot with any day than an arrogant obnoxious he-goat, he got served! .
Tomorrow , he would look at me with shame in his eyes and maybe with an apology on his lips.
I take a shower and get into bed, when I remember the scene tonight, I burst into more laughter, laughing into a long restful sleep.
The car horn outside alerted me that my driver was here.
I grab my bag and laptop because I was looking at some files. I lock my door and turn
“Goodmorning Ma” Wilson greets me
“Goodmornig Wislon , did you sleep well??” I greeted him back, the dude was looking at me funny…
Oh , I was in a good mood.
“Hain madame, am I safe?’’ he scratches his head
‘’Oh very Wilson, very, have you had breakfast?”
“Erm, no ma, madame is everything okay?” he frowns
I get it, one minute I am shouting him off and the next I am asking about his stomach. Yep I will be skeptical too
“Oh perfect! Fantastic. I know today would be totally awesome too. Stop by Crunchies so I get us some coffee and a big pie, you like coffee?”
He shakes his head “Coke better for me ma”
I tell him slipping into the car. okay, I still hadn’t apologized to him but hey, who cares, this was also a bribe.
Plus I was in a happy mood and nothing would spoil that, not even that Brian of an annoying PA who refused to do his job, but after last night’s experience, he would know that I am a force not to be messed with.
“Thank you madam, God bless you oh” Wilson says as I come out of crunchies carrying two bags and handing him one.
As we reach the office , he quickly jumps out of the car, taking my bag, I met John on the way up to my office, he grabs the bag from Wilson , coming to greets me
“Goodmorning madam, you look stunning this morning, can I walk you to your office?”
“Sure John, I also need you to do some work for me this morning can you? Plus I need to go out for a bit, I want to do a survey of the company’s competitors and I would like if you would join me?’’
If the available isn’t available, make the unavailable the available.
Which ,means that since Brian was useless ..John would just help me around the office, he seemed to eager to anyways.
“Sure madam, I would just have to pass on my work to another person and speak to Mr Emeka”
“Oh no need, I will run it by Mr Emeka myself, just temporarily , so you don’t have to worry”
“Okay then I will gladly be available.”
Yes, today was a good day, and nothing would spoil it.
But I was wrong, as soon as I open my office door…my hand flies to my chest, there is Brian Andrews with a wicked grin on his face… and my table was a mess..
But that wasn’t all…
He had my picture printed out, and photoshopped, showing me naked, with a flat sagging breasts with milk coming out of my breast, it looked like slime. Then my tummy, it is bloated.. and then I was on a flying broom with a witch’s hat.
“Oh, hi Adora, a quick heads up because I think you are too dumb and daft to figure this out, so let me help you. this picture is pasted all over the company, you might want to get to pulling them down..poster per poster, the one at Mr Emeka’s door is large enough to make a blind man see.
And oh, I hacked into your computer and got into your profile on social media and the one you are using on the company’s media presence, you know you are the social media guru right? Ehen, Well it so happens that you have over ten thousands friends and followers so I think I sort of had this picture of you online but its more revealing and with you sucking an horse’s cock. Oops!!”
“You wouldn’t dare, that’s my life , that’s this company’s reputation you just ruined. You wouldn’t dare “
“Oh…I would, I really would!’’
“Dear Lord, what have you done!!’’ I gasp rushing round my desk and clicking on the computer, I close my mouth when I see that he was right, he did post them..and it was posted about two hours ago, that means he got here two hours earlier, he got here two hours earlier just to ruin my life
“And what’s great is that you and a few hundreds shares and the caption is beautiful “Hi , I am ADORA CHIMMEY AND I SUCK COCKS FOR FREE, AND GUESS WHAT? I AM A WITCH..CHECK OUT MY DELFATED TITS!!’’ he laughs , “You see the rhyme there? Witch-Tits”
He is smiling…” And oh, I think Mr Emeka would have to give you a query for this, you are ruining the company’s image Adora and we know what happens when that happens? “ he demonstrates kicking a ball out the window…”You will be kicked back to lagos. This company is about good reputation and imaging Adora, surely you know that, that is why you are being employed and yet you do this on your free time and ruin the company’s profile page too…oh tsk tsk tsk, bad dog Adora bad dag!!’’ he says , walking away..”Oh I hope you don’t mind the mess, I had a quick breaskfast and I didn’t realize when it all spilled over everywhere soiling the carpet, the chair and –!!’’ he trails off walking away
“Brian, how dare you, this is your Boss’s Office, I will tell Mr Emeka that you did this, you will be punished or worse fired, I am talking to you Brian” John hold his arm stopping him, I am so shocked that I can’t move, nor speak
“Really, if you don’t let go in another second I would run you through that door and you don’t want to test me, I did this? So, she did worse” he nudges John out of the way and leaves
“oh my goodness no no no, what do I do” I sob trying to bring down the post regaining my voice, my hands shaking …”oh my God, they are still sharing”
My desk phone rings, its piercing my ear drums
“Make it stop!!!’’ I scream
John rushes to it and answers ‘’Yes sir, yes sir..okay sir”
“Mr Emeka wants you in his office now and he says to bring down that post on the internet, all of it and the posters everywhere in the company and he wants it done now and you need to get to his office , Now!!!”
Oh no no no no this would cost me my job…
I sit down pulling down the post, then I send a message asking and pleading to those who shared it to pull down the post that my account was hacked and this was in no way reflecting the image of the company but my personal life and that we don’t post nude pictures and that wasn’t me…etc etc”
“I can lose my job for this, I can lose my job for this” I repeat, the phone rings again
John picks, his eyes grows big..”Miss Adora?” he hands me the phone
I look up at him, “Mr Eemka, tell him I am on my way”
He shakes his head “It’s the Boss of the Boss!!!!’’
If the Boss of the Boss was calling me…I was officially screwed..
My hands shakes as I take the phone, clearing my throat, stilling my beating heart
“Hello?” I closed my eyes and waited for it..
His voice is rich and strong, it’s filled with anger too “Miss Adora Chime, you are-“I couldn’t breath!!
TO BE CONTINUED
I couldn’t breath!!
