Never Knew She’s Beautiful.
^ Rachael ^
On arriving home, I saw my sister sitting at the living room and watching the television.
“Welcome baby.” She greeted me.
I went to sit beside her. “How are you doing?”
“Fine, you? How was work?”
“Should have being fine but the boss lost his mother.”
“I feel miserable for him.” My sister expressed her condolence.
I nodded and sough.
After a moment of silence, I spoke up. “The boss’s brother wants to meet with you at the club today.”
I nodded. “10PM, so we better start getting prepared. ”
I could see an expression of happiness on her face.
My sister and I went to the club with the car that the boss bought for the ‘beautiful me’
As soon we entered, someone called my name from behind.
My sister and I both turned at the same time and it was the boss’s brother.
“I’m glad you made it.” He said to me and smiled at my sister.
They shook hands.
“I’ll excuse you guys.” I walked away and went somewhere lonely to sit.
I know that sooner or later, a man would come to fill the space before me. I do not think I’m in the mood to have a conversation with anyone.
My eyes darted to a man that was at the sit right before me. He was backing me and kept throwing his head back like a drunk man.
This hair looks like that of the boss but this cloth, no! I’ve never seen it on the boss before.
Plus why would the boss come here and worst if it all behaving like a drunk man.
I peeked and saw that no one was sitting in front of him.
Just when I was about to stand to go and have a sit before whoever it was that has the same hair as the boss, a well built man came into view and sat before me.
I smiled at him and walked away from him. I got before the man I assumed it to be the boss and sat before him.
His head dropped like someone totally drunk.
“Hey! Hey!” He only raised his eye brow but his head seems too heavy to lift.
“The boss! Boss!” I called and he tried to raise his head.
Oh! It’s the boss.
“I know you, aren’t you… My father?” He drank more.
What! Why would he be drinking himself to stupor?
“Common, stop drinking sir. You are loosing it.” He nodded and revealed his teeth, he drank more and place the bottle on the table.
I collected the bottle of drink from him and pulled it away from him.
“Where is my drink?”
“Here, ” I show him, “But I’m not giving you.”
“That’s my baby ,give me please.”
“Boss , you are drunk. What in the world is going on with you?”
“I don’t know.” He laughed and tried to collect his drink but I wouldn’t give him.
“Don’t be a bad father.”
I smiled. “Do I now look like a man to resemble your father. I’m Rachael.”
“Rachael? Rachael!” He repeated severally and placed his head on the desk.
He looked like one that has slept off. I need to help him.
I walked to his side and raised his head up.
“Common boss!” I helped him up and we both walk outside.
He was staggering and was only unttering nonsensee.
“Where is your car?” I asked.
I shook my head in frustration. After peeking around to all the cars around , I didn’t see any car that looks like his around neither do I see a car key in his hand.
I decided to put on the risk on placing him inside the car that he had acquired for the beautiful me.
“He’s still drunk anyway, he would not know.”
I closed the door of the car on him and went to the drivers sit.
I drove him home. I parked and stepped down.
I opened the door of the car and helped him step out
“You are drunk , you need to go inside and rest. It’s me Rachael!” I told him and hope he would be able to walk inside by himself.
“This is the car I bought for my girlfriend , how did you have it?”
