If You Missed The Part 31, Read It Here
About 3 months later, betty told me that she had informed her brother about the job fixing, but she said aunty bimpe wasn’t in support of it and she had poisoned her brother’s mind.
She told me that bimpe said I cannot be trusted and that I’m a gold digger who only wanted to ruin and drain the family investments. She told me that she tried to convince her brother but bimpe had always been against me.
“Chaiii, this bimpe again?”
” Why is this girl against my success na?.
I told her its ok and she shouldn’t worry, but betty assured me that I would get a job, she gave my CV to an interior decoration firm in lekki and I was called for a test/interview another 2 months later.
The test was fixed on a monday so I took the some days off at work in ado on friday and told my manager that I would resumed on Wednesday, he wasn’t happy with my 2 days absence but I tried to convince him that I wanted to travel to write a professional exam and he latter accepted.
That friday afternoon, I left work at 3pm and travelled to akure to visit segun after 6 months that we never saw each other, he was aware of my trip to lagos and he gave me his usual training and orientations.
I travelled to lagos from akure and got to my cousin’s place in mushin at 11pm. I had my bath and was later chatting with betty on how we would go about the job test and interview and we agreed to meet at her house on saturday morning.
On saturday, I dressed up and went to lekki to meet betty,. I was welcomed and entertained and I sat down in the living room, betty was alone at home at that moment.
Me: where is bimpe?
BETTY: she went out to a party
ME: what about daniella?
BETTY: she is sleeping upstairs.
ME: ok, I didn’t see your car in the compound. Is it faulty?.
BETTY: not at all, Aunty bimpe took it out.
BETTY: her highlander is having problem, so the mechanic took it away to fix it.
ME: “chaii!!, Bimpe dey drive highlander and me never get okada??”. Ok dear. When will she be back?.
BETTY: I can’t say, maybe 3 hours time.
ME: how about your uncle?
BETTY: he doesn’t stay at home most weekends. He is doing a partime business course with a foreign university who has affiliate in Abuja,
ME: hmmmmm, no wonder I have never seen him since I have been coming here.
BETTY: smiled. So , let’s talk about the job.
ME: yeah, how do we go about it?.
BETTY: onihaxy, wait a minute. Are you sure there is nothing else apart from the fight you had with Aunty bimpe in potharcout?
ME: why do you ask?
BETTY: because she so much disliked you. Infact, she doesn’t want to hear anything related to you. The other day when our purchase manager resigned. I was trying to talk to bro henry to fix you in and you need to see how aunty bimpe was so much against you.
BETTY: she said you are a gold digger, that you were sacked from somewhere in portharcout because you stole the firm’s money. Bla bla bla.
ME: and you believed her.
BETTY: no, I don’t. Because you don’t look like someone who could do such. But there was no way I could win the argument.
ME: hmmmmm, o ga oooo.
BETTY: even so many times, she had painted you black to me and gave me reasons to dump you. But trust me, I would never do that.
ME: waooh, you mean bimpe did all these things?
BETTY: why would I lie?.
ME: ***took a deep breadth***
BETTY: so onihaxy, is there something I need to know?,
ME: not at all.
BETTY: ok, if you say so, so as I was saying. The interior decoration firm is owned by my father’s friend. He used to travel out and also import furnitures and interiors to nigeria.
Me: so what would be my job position there?.
BETTY: he needed a marketing manager and I convinced him that I have someone who is capable.
ME: haaa, betty, I don’t know much about marketing ooo.
BETTY: its not something difficult jaree. You will just design proposals, go round hotels, offices, companies, online etc to seek for clients for him.
ME: do you think I would be able to handle this thing betty?
BETTY: I believe in you onihaxy, I believed you can do it. What you just need is the connections to people who would be your clients and I’m willing to help you with that.
Me: thanks so much dear.
BETTY: transportation won’t be your problem, bacause an official car should be given to you for easy marketing. And the bigger your clients, the higher your take home packages.
ME: like how much is the salary?.
BETTY: I don’t have idea oo. But I think he should be paying between 70 to 100k per month sha. You know here is lekki, so take homes should be at that range.
ME: “chaiii, official car huge take home, my own don better ooooo” thanks dear.
BETTY: you are welcome, so dear, I want you to prepare hard for the test and interview. I want you to get this job and shame aunty bimpe. I seriously want you to be bigger than 30k monthly salary.
ME: thanks dear.
BETTY: but please, I don’t want aunty bimpe to be aware oo, she might go behind me and poison the man’s mind because he knew bimpe too.
BETTY: don’t worry, you are safe after getting the job, I just want it to be secret for now.
Me: trust me now. We don’t even relate or talk, so how will I get to tell her?.
BETTY: that’s my darling. ***hugs***
Betty and I continued gisting untill daniella woke up and bimpe also arrived. She eyed me as usual after saying ‘Hi” when she saw me in the house, bimpe climb upstairs and betty told me that I need to start going so as to prepare well for the test.
I left lekki at around 5pm and went back to mushin.
I was at oshodi on sunday morning at around 8am to buy new shoe and tie because I didn’t come with tie and my shoe doesn’t look good for a lekki interview. I was under the bridge pricing shoe when I got a call, I looked at the screen and it was betty. I smiled and picked up.
ME: hi darling ***bedroom voice***
STRANGE VOICE: its not betty, this is bimpe ***panting***
ME: **frowned*** ehn ehn?? what happened?
BIMPE: **still panting*** please don’t hang up. Are you still in lagos?
BIMPE: where are you at the moment?
ME: oshodi, and why asking all these questions?, where is betty.
BIMPE: that’s why I called you, come over to mendila hospital in Ajah straightway. Its an emergency.
Me: **screamed**** yeeeeeeh. What happened to her?, what happened to my betty?, tell me!!!!
BIMPE: stop asking questions, when you get here, you will know.
ME: how do I get there from oshodi?.
BIMPE: haaa, take a cab from there directly to ajah. Give the driver the description, don’t worry, I would pay him when he gets here.
I was so worried and scared, I dropped the shoe I wanted to buy, I climbed oshodi bridge to the other side and I heard a bus shouting lekki ajah.
“Oh my God?, what time will this one get to ajah now?.”
Just while I was still asking rethorical question, I saw a powerbike parked very close to “under bridge” and behold, the rider was coming out of somewhere to mount on it. I ran close to him immediately.
ME: hello, please I need you help, its an emergency
RIDER: ***frowned*** yes, how can I help you?
ME: *scared and panting*** please I need to get to ajah, at mendila hospital.
RIDER: then go and take public bus now.
ME: please, someone so closed to me is dieing on a hospital bed and doctor said there would be no treatment until we pay, I just got the money and I want to rush down there to save her life.
RIDER: ok, your money is 3,000 naira.
ME: ****hian!!!, even Akure to lagos is 1,500naira na**** please have mercy on me, I don’t have up to that amount.
RIDER: **** switch on the bike** then get lost
ME: please wait, ok, I will pay 2k please.
RIDER: ok, I will take it because you said you have a dieing patient. Ok, climb up.
I mount on the power bike and it took me straight to the hospital at ajah in 25 minutes.
