The Brat and the She-devil 4

Xoxoxoxox…

I was set and ready before 7:30…
It was a beautiful Monday morning and I was well prepared to assume office …

Better to get to it.

I heard the car horn outside. .
A little anger swelled up inside me.
Remembering who has come to pick me.

“The good for nothing PA…”…I fumed.

“Just imagine…
Just a dent to my perfect day!!

I sighed.

I went outside locking my door.
With a straight face and a curt nod when I heard him say a greeting.

“I so was going to have him replaced …I really can’t deal with such a person as my PA….The more I saw him the more I got annoyed.”

“Madam I hope say you enjoy your weekend and you don’t sleep well well….
Plus you don have breakfast this morning so hungry no catch you??”..

He asked as he stared at me from the front mirror..

Obviously trying to make small conversation  .

“Drive the car Mr Andrews.  Am not in the mood for small talks”…

I took my files from my bag and perused through. .

I felt him stare at me for a few more seconds before he mumbled a ..

“Er sorry ma!!”

I rolled my eyes….

“I miss Tina ..why on earth can’t I gave my PA from lag brought to me..

And what’s this thing about order from the CEO…

I need to get that sorted out.”..

I assured myself.

I realised it wasn’t an exactly long drive..

Tops 15 minutes and we were infront to a giant building. ..

It had the “Andrew and  Co. Constuction company boldly stated”..

It wasn’t your usual construction company that’s always look a mess..

From the outside it looked like a corporate office firm. ..which indeed it was. ..

People dressed as officelike as possible..

Even the contruction workers had a cute overall. ..and an helmet but within it they dressed as decently as possible. .

The architects weren’t different from the people who stayed behind the computers and had a desk infront of them..
The only difference was that they either had a pencil in their hair or behind their ear…
So cliché of them…

But there was something cute about a guy with a rolled up sleeves..tucked in shirt and tie..looking all delicious being serious …

I smiled.

“Atleast this is a less stucked-up place than my previous environs..
With a little of everything in one place…diverse culture and people…
Different fields of specialisation trying to make up on unit..what’s there not to love??”

I muttered to myself as I highlighted from the car and followed the annoying person infront of me as he showed me the way…

Atleast he had a good enough sense to carry my bag and files without me telling him.

“I’m still replacing your ass”… I muttered to myself

It was 10 minutes to 8am.

Introductions starts by 8am..and briefing…

I walked into the reception area…
And sat down..

And waited.

………

Brian had a swell weekend.
Lots of booze and warm body.
One would think he would be totally wasted and sprawled on his sofa till sunrise a million years later.

But no.
He had a lot of energy to last a life time…

He stared at his naked body as he stood infront of his mirror..

He smiled.

He loved his body.
He always thanked the stars for such perfectness.  
And most especially for the fact that despite his abs and sweet biceps..
Killer body and taut butts  .
He was well endowed..
And he never let’s an opportunity pass to flaunt it to the chicks who were privelleged to view it. .
He calls it..

“His Gift to women”…
Especially when it was on full alert  ..
He liked that their eyes pops out of their socket..
It wasn’t that it was gigantic. ..
Not like someone’s fist. ..
But it wasn’t an average boy…
And it was beautiful. ..
Well…it was .

He wiggled it as he danced to the music playing to the background..and laughed at his silliness.

He looked at the time ..7:45

He shrugged.

He picked out a black shirt and a brown chinos pants..
He didnt bother with a tie..
He carried a brown jacket, wearing a brown loafers. .
Rolex. .
Male cologne …
Brushed his hair back..
Looked at his teeth…and gave himself a thumbs up..and smiled..

“Gosh I love me”…

7:55

He strolled out of the house..
The driver had been on standby since 7:30..

“Sup man”..?..

“Goodmorning Sir! ‘..
The driver said opening the door for him to slid in…

“Goodmorning personal bodyguard stroke driver stroke buddy patrol stroke whatever else my father have you doing….”

“Am sure if he pays you to spy on me boning some chick or pooping you wouldn’t mind right?”…

Tony didnt answer…but smiled. He knew Brain was being cynical.

Atleast today he was in a good mood.
Other days he throws insults as though every word he knew was of them.

He tries to get away from him during crowded places but ofcos he doesn’t get that  far.

They were 3 bodyguards.
But he told his father that he felt like a kid with nannies …

So two were taken away from his security detail…and the driver was removed as well so a bodyguard assumed the responsibility instead.

Tony knew that it sucked.
But the pay was good…
Plus he had to keep his cool else he wouldn’t mind punching this brat and making him hit the dirt.

Such dudes born with a silver spoon don’t know the first thing of responsibility,  obedience and how to treat other lesser beings…
And brain here was the worst of them .

All he knew how to do was..
Party..women..booze and it went on and on like a vicious circle…

Tony shook his head.

He is lucky he got a father who gave a shit about him.

“My father will kick your ass to the curb ”
“Go learn how to be a man..fend for yourself and put food on the table…then we can talk about how well of a man you are”..

“And we have here someone who just gets plastered with money and don’t really have to work shit to get it.
And the only condition here is just to PA and yet he don’t give a shit and asks like a boss around here”..

He shook his head…but stopped.

“Well technically…He is the boss’s son so….
But no one is supposed to know that..
So he is supposed to keep a low profile..
And that’s not exactly what he is doing by being an ass hole at work and practically getting away with everything..”

“The buzz around the office of who is he and the link to my Andrews is still uncertain…
Everyone pegs him for high profile and the curiousity is over the roof…

“His phone has being buzzing all weekend…from Mr Andrews. .

“Why in the world didnt you make him go to the airport. ..
Why didn’t you make sure he had the files printed and sent to the new employer. ..

“Tony what is this am hearing about the new employee wanting the PA replaced??”
“If he doesn’t do his job I will have yours!!!

“I am paying you to guard my son and make sure he doesn’t run wild yet …
I see pictures of him having one to many naked women…
Drinks…
And what’s worse ….
People asking questions of who he is and all that…
Make it stop unless I will need your resignation letter”…

He went on and on and all…
Ofcourse not even wanting to listen to him speak. ..
Tony was angry. .

“Am not his fucking nanny “..
“Am a security detail”..
“Not to wash his ass and make sure he eats and gets to work early..
Who does that shit…..”

…He sighed…

“But the pay is good.
“For the money bro…
Just for the money.
Suck it up.
Smile.
This dude don’t gat shit on you”…

“Er Tony…
I know you would love to stand and admire how handsome I look but can you get to your driver duties…
I have a PA thingie to go to and make papa proud…”…

He snickered…

Wearing his shades. ..
He closed his eyes and relaxed his head..

“Right away Sir!!”

Tony enters into the car puts it in drive and they were off..

…….

Mr Emeka was addressing the team of crowded people…
I was standing not so far away from him…Pretending to look through some files while he barbed about work ethics and all that and all that…

And when I heard him say…

“Finally before we  go about our days duties..
I would like to introduce the newest addition to the company..
All the way from lagos, Nigeria ofcoz”..

Which got everyone smiling …

“Miss Adora chime. .
She is the social media manager..
Incharge of everything worth anything about the social media..
Which her basic duties are all about reconstructing the company and putting it in the limelight
Give it the appropriate spunk it needs.
Recognisition and attractiveness and also to sell the company and bring in more customers. ..

She is good at what she does  ..
Best in her field ..
And don’t think she is all about the social media…
She is good with figures as well and she is equally smart…

So be rest assured if you see her hovering over you…
Asking questions  …
Taking snapshots or interviews etc…
Holding meetings and giving out needed budgets…don’t feel agitated ..she is just doing her thing.

I implore you to be corporative and help her if needed…

Ladies and gentlemen….
The beautiful Adora..””…

Applause….

“Look at him introducing me as though am supposed to have an award or something”…I said to myself before dazzling them with my killer smile…

“Hello everyone…
Well Mr Emaka has said it all…
So there is no need to re emphasis.

I am here to help put the company on the spotlight it deserves.
It’s the new age…
Everyone needs their company not only at work..
But also for the world to see..
And to have that…and make it sparkle. ..
You would need someone who knows the inner workings of social media, how to get the target market well enough to bring the  needed customers and sponsors to your door…
And I can say I am up to it..

So please fill free to go about your duties and don’t let my presence make you uncomfortable. ..

I will just do my thing and try not to damper on yours…

Am here for abit…
I hope you will tolerant my lil tantrums if I happen to throw them…”

Smiles and applause..

I stepped back…

All eyes were on me..

I even heard a side comment…

“She is a sexy vixen…that body is just amazing …shit”…

I smiled.

Men!!

“So..department heads. ..
Any briefing?
Announcements etc?
Before we we go…..

“Oh yes…
The one names bola stepped out..
Adjusting his tie trying to impress me maybe…

Because everyone was there…and the door was closed…and the hall was calm…
It took everyone’s eyes to the door when it opened and he walked in…

Shades on and a straight face..

I wondered who walked in as though he owned the place…
With dark shades on in a non – sunlight room.

I looked around…
Shouldn’t he be reprimanded?

It was 9:10…
And he was drinking a coke…and leaned by the door…

I noticed people were muttering…
Bola had to raise his voice a notch to be heard…

Mr Emeka had to pull the Hush on them…

“Calm plz”!!

I wondered why my stupid Pa wasn’t even in the room.

After I entered the conference all…
I thought he was behind me apparently he didn’t.

Shouldn’t he be here taking notes..
Or am supposed to do everything myself…
I felt the anger rising again.

I need to talk to Mr Emeka..

He was the acting  Director …

While the meeting ended….

Mr Emeka came to me..

“Nice to have you hear Miss Adora..
I hope the city is doing you well”..

“Thank you.
Yes indeed.”..

“Good I will walk you to your office. .
You have a secretary stationed at your departmental floor…
But your PA will handle every other thing you need within and outside the office.

I am sorry for any inconvenience he must have caused you…”  he was saying..

“Yes about that sir…
I spoke to the HR but was told he can’t be changed.
Since you are the director I feel you can override that..
He is clueless and awkward and would be a dent to my work and I can’t have a slow poke in my everyday work…
So I would like very much to change him if you don’t mind…”

He smiled and pats me on the back..

“My dear..bear with him a little while..
I know he can be insufferable and spoilt but he is a good lad…well I think so…Besides he it’s new at this PA thing and it’s from other from above .”

“Why do you call him a lad…that’s and full blown elderly man…
Whose place shouldn’t be running errands…and mine would be pretty tasking…
I need someone with a little energy and not entirely daft”…

He looks at my obviously puzzled.

“Am sure Brain Brain could be anything. …but daft isn’t one of them.
He it’s just being difficult and I will do well to talk to him”..

We have walked to a door and stopped..

On it had my office name..

“Social media manager”..

He opened the office and motioned me to follow him..

It was immaculately clean and arranged..

A desk..
A table and two guest chest..

A cabinet for files and books..

Everything had a touch of brown and a see through to the park window. ..

A round table at the center with two sofas and a TV. .

I was liking my office the more I looked at it and temporarily forgot about the PA.

“I hope you find everything to your satisfaction yes?”..

“Yes indeed. “…I replied in admiration. ..strolling around my office taking note of every detail..

My name tag was placed on the desk…with a “Miss Adore C.”. Initialled on it .

I sat down behind my desk and ran my hand over the desk.. it was made of mahogamy. I like.

“If you need anything . Anything at all..please feel free to call or come to my office..
It’s the 28th door at the end of the hall..
“Directors office “…
“Lemme leave you to it  ..
Am sure you are itching to get to it…”

“Thank you”..

He was out of the door..

“My bag and files”…!!!

“Mtcheww”…

I picked up the telephone.

There was no where I was going to go out there looking for that fool.
Shouldn’t he have been here waiting atleast since he wasn’t in the meeting….

“This guy was going to be the death of me..”

Thankfully all the office numbers and heads of departments were typed and placed on my table…

I dialed the secretary’s number…

“Yes please….who am am speaking with?..

“Bekky ma’am.
How can I help you?”

“Yes please I need to get in touch with my PA. .
Ask him to come to my office with my files and bag…
I need to get started immediately “.

“Good thanks.”.

Line went dead.

I got up and picked out a book from from the shelve. ..

It was about the company. …written by one of the prestigious Writers in the country…

The book sold a ton…

It’s a good place to start.
By getting extra information about the company’s little beginings. ..

The phone rang…
I picked it up at the third ring…

“Er ma’am…He said he us busy at the moment and he isn’t with your files and bag….”

“What nonsense is that??
“He carried it for me from the car…
Did he fling it somewhere….??
Where is he???
“Infact never mind”..

I slam the receiver down and storm out.
Retracing my steps to the reception area…

I saw the big fool seated …
Making small conversation with someone else…

I didnt bother to notice a few people along the passage way…passing the cubicles and him standing as he leaned in to talk to a flashy girl ….

“Mr brain Andrews…
Do you find it satisfying to make me get constantly upset with your lack of common sense?
“Look I have not the time or patience.
“I didnt bring those out of the house to decorate your outside but to be used in the office..
“Why would you say you don’t have it when do obviously do…
“Are to be quite stupid? ”

I didnt get his shocked expression..

“But madam no body tell me you they look for me naw”
“I dey here dey wait you…
I never know wether una don finish una meeting…
And lady here no allow me go your office …so na make me sitdon here since”…
He replied me

“Oh cut the Crap Mr Andrews. ..
You must think am stupid…
when you are obviously the one in need of reorientation. …
You are a sorry excuse for a PA. …I don’t even know what to do with you”…

I hadn’t realise people were staring and someone had left his initial position and slowly walked to where I was and was staring at me with a laughing expression at the corner of the room..

Obviously enjoying my outburst.

” give me my bag and files…
You are useless and incompetent  Mr Andrews….”I order with my outstretched hand.

He awkwardly gets up and rushes to my with my items..

“Sorry ma’am….no vex.
But madam ..you de confuse me.for another——-“….He tried to explain

“Oh shut up”!!..
I took it and stormed back to my office..

Everyone silently watched the showdown.
Confused and puzzled expression playing on their faces..

John had walked in right as I was leaving. ..

As he greet me I snubbed him and Walked pass waving my hand dismissively at him…

“Hain what is making her upset this first day at work…?
“Its at beautiful morning oh…abeg oh!!!

“She was shouting on her driver calling him Mr brain Andrews “..someone offered.

“But Mr Andrews was just there staring at her. …she didn’t look at him “…

Another interjected

Realisation dawned on him…as he thought of it..

“She probably have got him confused .
No wonder she said he was old and retarded the other day”….
He said partially to himself

“Tony what was that?…
The first person asked.

“Una too like gossip.
Shift abeg…I have work to do”… as he strolled away to his spot..

The only other person smiling was the one standing by the corner…
Rubbing his jaw…

“She is a feisty one…”!!!
“I like!!”
