HEARTLESS BOSS

Part 3

Final part

 

Story time

 

It has been five years since Ekene’s son (Uchenna who he named after his late dad) was given birth to and not even for once did Franklin failed to give Ekene the monthly allowance he promised him.

*

*

Ekene has been happy lately because he is very sure that he will be settled soon since he has completed his eight years of learning trade

*.

One evening, Ekene was in his room when their maid came to call him telling him that his master wants to see him.

*

Ekene quickly got up from his bed to the sitting room where his master is. Ekene greeted Peter and Kate but Kate was the one that told him to sit which he did

*

*

Peter: *clears throat* Ekene

*

Ekene: Sir!

*

Peter: I believe you know why I sent for you?

*

Ekene: No sir

*

Peter: Since you don’t know let me tell you why. Ekene you are suppose to learn trade with me for eight years right?

*

Ekene: Yes sir

*

Peter: And now you have learned the trade for eight years which means am now suppose to settle you but that won’t be happening.

*

Ekene: Why sir? Have I done anything wrong to you for the past eight years?

*

Peter: No you haven’t done that to me but what you did is far worst

*

Kate: What did he do that is far worst?

*

Peter: This boy you see here that we all believe is a saint is nothing but a liar and a thief who has been stealing from me

*

Ekene: Sir I have never stole from you before

*

Peter: Will you shut up your mouth there or did I even asked you to talk?

*

Kate: Why are you accusing this boy wrongly or is any of your money missing?

*

Peter: *trying to avoid answering his wife question* Kate if you think am accusing him wrongly then ask him if he doesn’t have a baby mama and also ask him if he didn’t steal N70,000 from me to pay for his baby mama’s hospital bills.

*

*

Kate: What do you mean by Ekene having a baby mama?

*

Peter: This Ekene you see here impregnated a girl five years ago under our very nose without us knowing

*

Kate: *turning to face Ekene* Is it true that you have a baby mama?

*

Ekene: Yes ma but I didn’t steal any money from my master

*

Kate: I believe Ekene because I have tested him countless times to see if he will steal from me but not once did he steal

*

Peter: If am lying then he should tell me where he got all the money he has been using to take care of his son from

*

Kate: Ekene please tell us where you got the money from because I know you didn’t steal it

*

Ekene: Oga Franklin has been the person taking care of my son and he is also the person that gave me the N70,000 for the operation

*

Peter: Which Franklin?

*

Ekene: Sir the one you learned trade from

*

Peter: You are lying and you know what? Am sick and tired of all your lies. First you impregnated a girl, then you stole from me and if that was not enough, you have the guts to lie with my master’s name so now I want you to get out of my house this very minute.

 

******

 

Ekene and Kate pleaded with him not to send Ekene packing but he didn’t listen

 

Peter: No amount of pleading will change my mind. So leave

*

Peter left them in the sitting room and went to his bedroom. Kate gave some money to Ekene and told him to leave just like Peter had earlier said but not without promising to talk to her husband.

Ekene left the house to Ifeoma’s house.

*

*

Kate entered their bedroom only to meet her husband lying on the bed

*

Kate: Honey what you just did to Ekene is so unfair. That boy didn’t steal from you and I am very sure you were only using that stealing as an excuse for you not to settle that boy which is very bad of you. I want you to also remember that you stole from your master but he still settled you

*

*

Peter: He settled me because I played my cards well. He never got to find out that I stole a lot from him.

*

Kate: Peter please I beg of you to do the right thing

*

Peter: Right thing which is?

*

Kate: To settle Ekene

*

Peter: Oh I see!

*

Kate: You see what?

*

Peter: You love that boy that’s why you are still asking me to settle him after we found out that he stole from us. How am I even sure you weren’t even sleeping with him under my nose

*

*

Kate: So you are trying to accuse me of infidelity just because am advising you to do the right thing which is for you to settle Ekene.

Now I even want you to tell me how you were able to find out about Ekene’s baby mama.

*

*

Peter: The hospital where the baby mama put to birth belongs to my friend and he was the person that told me everything.

*

Kate: That means it has been long you knew about the baby mama but kept quite so that you would use it against him when you want to settle him right? But let me tell you this, Ekene’s God will fight for justice for him

*

*

Peter replied his wife with “God won’t fight for him because I did the right thing” and the left the bedroom for his wife.

 

💧💧💧

 

Ekene got to Ifeoma’s house and explained everything to her but she only ended up blaming herself saying that if she had known this will happen, she would have aborted Uchenna but Ekene told her not to blame herself because his son’s life worth more than the money his master will settle him with.

*

*

Ifeoma suggested that Ekene should go and meet Franklin since he is the person who has been helping them which also mean he is the only person that can make Peter settle him.

*

*

Ekene thought about it and agreed to go to Franklin’s shop the next day.

 

******

 

The next day Ekene woke up early and prepared to meet with Franklin.

Ekene got to Franklin’s shop but he was told by his sales girl that he is yet to come to the shop. Ekene decided to wait for him instead of him going back home.

*

*

Ekene has been waiting for Franklin for the past three hours but Franklin hasn’t arrived yet so Ekene decided to go home that day and return the next but when he was about standing up, Franklin entered into the shop and he was very happy to see him.

*

*

Franklin told Ekene to sit before asking him why he had come to see him that early. Ekene explained everything to him and he promised Ekene that Peter is going to settle him whether he likes it or not.

*

*

Later that day, Franklin went to pay Peter a surprised visit. When he got to Peter’s house, he met his absence but he met Kate who told him that Peter will be back very soon and Franklin decided to wait since he was not in s hurry to leave.

*

*

Peter came home thirty minutes later and was very surprise to see his master in his house.

*

*

Peter: Good evening sir!

*

Franklin: Evening Peter

*

Peter: Sir this one that you came to visit me this late, hope am save?

*

Franklin: You are but I came here to discuss something with you

*

Peter: What could that be important that can’t wait till tomorrow?

*

Franklin: Sit down first before I tell you.

*

Peter: Okay let me take my seat

*

Franklin: Your boy Ekene came to me earlier today telling me that you had refused to settle him and why is that?

*

Peter: Sir you see that boy has a baby and he has also been stealing from me to take care of the baby. If that was not enough, he even lied with your name

*

Franklin: How sure are you that he Lied with my name?

*

Peter: I know he lied with it because there is no way you could have given him money to pay for his baby’s mama hospital bill

*

Franklin: You see that’s where you are wrong because I was the one that gave him the money and for the past five years, I have been the one taking care of the baby.

*

Peter: Sir are you trying to tell me that you knew about Ekene’s baby mama and you didn’t tell me

*

Franklin: Peter the baby mama is not what we are discussing here. You accused Ekene of stealing that’s why you didn’t want to settle him but since you now know that he didn’t steal from you, I will advice you to do the right thing by settling him

*

*

Peter: Even if he didn’t steal from me I still won’t settle him for having a baby mama

*

Franklin: Oh! I now see you don’t want to settle that boy but I will make you settle him directly or indirectly

*

Peter: What do you mean?

*

Franklin: Don’t worry because you will soon find out

*

******

Franklin left Peter’s house leaving Peter to wonder what he meant with “Don’t worry you will soon find out”. Thirty minutes later, a knock was heard and Peter went to open it only for him to see Franklin with some uniform men

*

Franklin: Officers! Officers! Officers! This is the person I just told you stole my money when serving with me fifteen years ago so arrest him.

The officers arrested Peter and took him to the police station.

 

💧💧💧

The police officers arrested Peter and took him to the police station while Franklin followed them from behind.

*

They got to the police station and Peter was yelling at the police officers saying “They have no right whatsoever to arrest him when they have no concrete evidence of him stealing”. Peter thought Franklin had no evidence.

*

*

Franklin came to the police station some seconds later and told the police to give him some minutes to speak with Peter alone which they gave him.

*

*

After the police men left them alone, Franklin turned to Peter with a smirk on his face.

*

Peter: Sir what is the meaning of this?

*

Franklin: I told you that you are going to settle Ekene directly or indirectly and this is just a step on achieving that

*

Peter: You did tell me but arresting me without any evidence of me stealing from you won’t make me to settle him

*

Franklin: That’s where you are wrong because I have more then enough evidence

*

Peter: If you do have any then let me see them.

*

Franklin brought some document inside the briefcase he was holding and gave them to Peter. And Peter collected the documents and went through them only for him to discover that they are the photocopies of the documents of the house and three plot of lands he bought when he was still learning trade with Franklin.

*

*

Peter: How did you get these?

*

Franklin: I have my ways of finding out things just like the way you were about to find out that Ekene has a baby mama. I knew you stole from me but yet I still settled you.

*

*

Peter: Sir you still have no case against me because these documents here are not the originals but the photocopies

*

*

Franklin: Peter that’s where you are wrong again because I also have the originals

*

*

Peter: You can’t have the original documents because they are with me

*

Franklin: Let’s see about too

*

Franklin brought out another document from his briefcase and gave them to Peter and Peter was very surprise to see the original documents with Franklin

*

Peter: Where did you get these from?

*

Franklin: That’s story for another day Peter

 

💧💧💧

 

Those original documents were given to Franklin by Kate because she too wanted justice for Ekene

*

Peter knows that if Franklin should take him to court, he was going to win so he decided to beg Franklin

*

Peter: Sir I am ready to settle Ekene but please don’t take this case to court

*

Franklin: I won’t listen to your own pleas same way you didn’t listen to Ekene’s own.

*

Now is the time for me to recover all you stole from me. See you in court.

*****

Franklin left the police station to his house while Peter was regretting why he didn’t want to settle Ekene in the first place because he was very sure if he didn’t deny Ekene his settlement, Franklin wouldn’t have arrested him for stealing from him.

*

Peter didn’t allow the case to be taking to court because he knows that there is no way he was going to win it. He told the police that he is willing to pay Franklin all the money he stole and everything was calculated and the total money he paid was 8 millionaire. The police gave the money to Franklin but Franklin called Ekene to his shop and gave him the whole 8 millionaire.😊

*

*

Ekene was very surprise so he asked Franklin why he arrested Peter because of the money only for him to end up giving him the money and Franklin told him that “he only arrested Peter because he wanted justice for what Peter did to him

*

*

Ekene collected the money and told Franklin that “he will forever remain grateful to him and also indebted to him”

*

Ekene use four million to start up a business which was successful and kept the rest in the bank.

*

Ekene was able to give his mum, Ifeoma and Uchenna the kind of life he has always wanted to give them and he later got married to Ifeoma.
