It was monday morning. I woke up very early as
usual to prepare breakfast, had my bath and prepared
for work. As my manager wasn’t around, I took
enough time to do some tidings and was eventually
late to work as a result.
I got to work by 8:30am, I met the factory workers
and the packaging boys at the production room. I
waved at them as I passed by with my folder in my
hand and one of the boys said “oga, e be like say you
get visitor oooo”. “Really?, who is the person? And
where is he?” I replied the boy, and he said “oga, na
lady ooo, she don sit down for your table”. I replied
“ok, thank you. I wasn’t sure who the visitor was
until I walked to the table and met my lovely lolade
sitted at the visitors seat infront of my table.
LOLADE: **smiled*** good morning sir!
ME: **smiled too** my wife, good morning.
LOLADE: ha sir!. Your wife kee?, you want to put me
into trouble sir
ME:*** pats her shoulder as I walked down to my
seat*** which trouble dear?
LOLADE: you know I’m just new here sir “e ma je ki
won so mi lenu oooo” I don’t want to be implicated.
ME: you are funny dear.
ME: yes!!!, Manager called me this morning that he
won’t be around today and tomorrow, so he told me
to tell you that you should wait till wednesday when
he would arrive so that you can obtain your guarantor
and referee’s form and also process your ID card.
LOLADE: ok sir.
ME: alrite, I will give you a 60leaves note now. And I
will attach you to the driver whom you will be working
with. You are expected to make a record of all daily
sales inside the note and indicate the dates
everyday. The note will contain the number of packs
loaded before leaving every morning, number of
sales, credit purchase from customers, and number
of packs returned in the evening if you couldn’t sell
LOLADE: ** stared at me in silence***
ME: ***raised up my head and noticed her*** ololade,
what is the problem?, why are you silent?
LOLADE: sir!, I don’t understand any of your
explanations, I don’t know how to go about it.
ME: haaaa!!!, so if my manager was to be the one
telling you all these, you would tell him that you have
no idea?, and you would inturn implicated me for
telling him that you had pure water sales
LOLADE: **faced down and sad*** I’m sorry sir.
ME: **stood up from my seat and walked to meet
her and placed my hand on her back*** its ok my
dear, you don’t have to be sad. I understand that you
don’t have any experience, that’s why I gave you the
cv over the weekend to study it through.
LOLADE: I did sir,
ME: ok dear, its ok, my manager’s absence is really a
blessing in disguise. I will seize the opportunity of his
two days Absence to train you on so many things, so
that you won’t Bleep up and disappoint me when he
LOLADE: ok sir.
ME: it means you will have to wait for few minutes
after closing so that I can have chance to put you
through the steps and procedures.
LOLADE: ok sir.
I drew a table chart inside the note and explain few
things to her about it. I told her to always report to
me at the end of the day for assessment and
accounting. She left and I was looking at her
swinging ass through her small pant skirt. I attached
her to the new driver, I told one of the other sales
rep to go with them so as to introduce them to the
new market and they drove off after packing packs
of water into the new van.
“Chaii, onihaxy, you get sense ooo”
“See as you tell her to wait after closing and she
After their departure. I told all the factory boys to go
home at exactly 5pm to rest for the day instead of
the regular 6pm. They were so happy and joyous. I
told the other sales reps that they should all return
before 5pm so as to attend to them on time because
I must leave by 5pm. They were also happy because
they would be leaving an hour earlier.
It was 5pm in the evening, the boys had closed for
the day as instructed earlier, I went through the
records of the other 4 sales representatives and
collect money from them and I was through by
5:20pm and they left. At 5:45pm, lolade arrived with
the new driver and the person I sent to assist them. I
dismissed the driver and the other lady immediately
and I told lolade to wait behind for me to go through
her sales records.
When I noticed that others had left, I took the spare
key of my manager’s office and I told lolade to come
inside with so that I can go through a sales for the
day and also train her on what she needs to know,
she nodded and smiled at me as we both walked
inside the office and I locked the door from inside.
LOLADE: ** looked around the office**I guess this is
the manager’s office?.
ME: not really, we both use the office. But since he
used to have visitors and he needed privacy most
times, so we decided to have another table and
chairs outside. So I use the outside table most times
when he needs privacy.
LOLADE:** still looking around***how come you still
share office when you have your own table outside?
ME: because I’m his P.A, and also the secretary/
Accountant of the company at the same time.
LOLADE: waoooh, so you are handling 3 positions at
a time, that is very nice sir, it means your take home
must be very huge niyen ooooo **smiles**
ME: *smiled too** “oloshi, see as this girl dey reason
my salary sha, na another maga venture this one go
be oooooo”, if you say so dear.
LOLADE: **smiled and nodded** that’s nice
ME: bring your chair closer to me here so that we
can start the tutorials and seminar
LOLADE: **smiled as she lifted the chair and moved
it to my side** yes sir.
ME: so where is the notebook I gave you?
LOLADE: here is it sir.
I spent the first 15 minutes going through the sales
book, vetting and correcting some errors, I spent
another 30 minutes explaining things about our
company and how to handle things to lolade, and
how she would defend her experiences when
manager arrives. I was touching her hand, pushing
myself on her and staring at her at intervals. When
we were through with the seminar, I turned my chair
and faced her, stared at her, held her hand and let
out a smile.
ME: ololade mi, please save me, I’m dieing please.
LOLADE: sir?, dieing kee?! How?
ME: its about you. I have been having sleepless night
since the day I met you. I hardly spend 10 minutes
without thinking of you my love, you have fill my
heart with lots of love and I’m fully drowned into the
pool of your love.
LOLADE: hmmmm, men!!!!, they can make mouth and
ME: **held her second hand and moved closer***
ololade mi. Believe me my dear, I’m not lieing. Infact,
I have never fallen in love like this before. Your love
is making me going insane. Please don’t let me run
LOLADE: ok, I heard you. So how do I help you?.
ME: please, just give me a yes, give me a space in
your heart, let me be your man, and I promised to
love you for the rest of my life, I so love you, you are

LOLADE: ** quiet for a while***
ME: my love, please talk, I’m scared by your silence
LOLADE: hope you won’t disappoint me?
ME: I swear I won’t, lolade, in the valley of decision,
you will forever remain my only choice.
