. “Let’s buy him a mouth organ.”
“He isn’t worth it, and, he’ll think I like him or something. I don’t want him to feel on top of the world.” She replied.
“Just to cajole him now.” She grinned.
“And… where do you intend to get the money. You know we’re are managing.” She reminded her.
“Sorry… I thought we were rich.” She smiled.
Favour and Stella got to the front of the hotel. “We can do this, let’s go in.” Favour smiled in return.
Both walked in smartly. They got to the front of the receptionist and greeted the young lady. They told her what they came for and she directed them to Feyi.
Tolani was laughing. He just ended the long term call between him and his friends, in Manchester.
They’ve made it a surprise for him that they’d visIt Nigeria to spend some weeks with him. he felt he should just make a reservations at diamond hotel and besides, Feyi would be happy he brought his friends to her place.
. He drove at the front of the hotel amd wiped his face. He checked if his collar was well popped and if he was looking as handsome as he left home earlier.
“Yeah, I’m good to go.” He smiled and took some steps

He walked to the reception and told the receptionist he would like to see Feyi. He told him he had no appointment with him but he should call her and tell her Tolani would like to see her.
The receptionist told him she had some visitors, Stella and her friend were still in her office. She had told them to sit and apologized that she will take a little out of their time because she had to verify a mail on her laptop.
She just concluded the verification and was about addressing the ladies. “I’m sorry for keeping you waiting. You came for the job?” She enquired again, though she knew.
“Yes.” The laides chorused.
She picked up the phone and called Mr Adepoju, the chairman of recruiting committee. He didn’t pick up and she decided to call the receptionist to ask if Mr Adepoju had gone out.
As he picked up the call, he got her informed that Mr Adepoju just went out to meet a client.
Feyi remembered she had been told earlier, by himself.
“Another visitor is here… Mr Tolani.” He informed her.
“Let him in instantly.” She ordered the guy and hung up. “You may go.” He said to him and gave him the description of how he’d get to her office.
Tolani smiled and appreciated him. He approached her office slowly.
Mr Adepoju entered into the office and almost disappeared on seeing the two ladies in his office. “How did you manage to get here?” He questioned them.
Stella and Favour stood up at once and glimpsed at each other. “The Madam, the C.E.O, I think.” Favour spoke.
“Miss Feyi right?” He asked and took few steos forward.
“Yes sir.” They both chorused.
He calmed down and walked to his seat. He sat down and removed his glasses. “Come right here.” He called them.
Both walked to his presence and stood. “Sit down.” He offered them seats and started his discussion.
“I’ve been told by the receptionist earlier that you guys came for the vacancies.”
“Yes sir.” Both of them said together.
“That’s pretty good, you guys came with application letters and your C.V?”
“Yes sir.” They both brought out their application letters and C.Vs. They handed it over to him and awaited his response. “You guys are really good, you don’t worth this job at all..” he said, wondering on how they could have come for that kind of oppurtunity.
“We really need this sir, it’s Nigeria..” Stella spoke.
“You really think so? I don’t want you to work here with this kind of certificates, you worth more, you are to be respected.” Mr Adepoju was being considerate.
“Please sir, let’s be working here for the mean time, we’d get a better job. To eat is a big problem.” Stella sounded sad.
“Alright, if you insist. But I’ll try to make sure you ladies make it to the top.” He smiled and shook them. “I’ll speak with Miss Feyi about you and will get in touch with you.” He said.
“Alright sir. Do we leave our cell phone numbers?”
“It’s a thing they can start right away, they’ll be orientated by Chucks.” Feyi addressed Mr Adepoju.
“That’s nice ma, but you can help them..” He said slowly and sofly.
“That’s true, let’s start from this level before we move to the aspect of helping. I’ll try and do something.” She smiled.
“Thank you ma.” Mr Adepoju stood happily and left.
Adepoju returned back to the office. He divulged the news to them happily that they could start that day because Feyi was so pleased. He told them they have orientation that would be handled by one of the committee members, Mr Chucks and they’d be work for night shift that day.
Though it was a good news, but on the other hand an unpleasant one. It wouldn’t be a good thing to be a cleaner in a hotel when one’s mates would be in big companies.
“When’s the orientation?” Favour asked.
“Let’s say in two hours’ time.” He smiled.
“Alright sir.” Stella replied.
“You can go home and come back, for the preparation of the orientation. Nice to join us, DIAMOND HOTEL.
“If we go home now, we’ll pay, while coming back, we’ll pay as well. Don’t you think waiting will be the best?” Favour suggested.
“That’s it. Let’s go and wait in the reception till we are called.” Stella replied.
Both stood up and walked to the reception to sit.
TWO HOURS AFTER.
The orientation was done for the two and were told to come and start their job by 7:00 pm that evening.
Stella and Favour left as soon as they could so as to start preparing for the job they just found. As they got home, Temitope Williams called Stella to know her state of health. Stella told him she was now very fine, in fact eating at home. Her utterances forced Temitope to ask her if she had no job.
“My friend and I are just jobless, idle and have nothing to do. We just came back from a hotel where we were offeres cleaning job. We’ll start tonight.”
“No! You ladies can’t do that. You are graduates as you’ve told me, why should you work as hotel cleaners? If you don’t mind, I can help you with that employment issue.” He replied her.
“Really? You can really do that?” Stella asked happily.
“It’s a thing that can be done easily. An assistant managing director for contracts is needed in this company. And your friend, she can be transferred to my second branch to head the Sales Department.” He explained.
Stella almost threw away her phone. She stood happily but made sure her happiness was well masked before Temitope who was speaking with her. “When should we come sir?” She asked.
“Since I just got you informed, come tomorrow morning.” He told her.
“I’m really grateful sir, I’m so grateful and will forever be grateful. Thanks so much sir.” She was appreciative.
“You’re welcome.” Temitope smiled and ended the call.
Tobiloba was the contracts managing director while Stella would be the new assistant to him.
