Tamed episode 2

“Is there a problem Miss Samantha Brooke?” the
lady asks her, everyone is looking at her,
including him, someone was whispering beside
her, asking if she was okay, that she gets to
work on the same floor with Mr Bass, the actual
Jake Bass, all hot, fine, $3xy and oozing of
bliss and she is frowning, and everyone here
would wish to be in her place. Someone even
asked what the hell she was doing here and if
she knew who Mr Jake Bass was, another was
saying maybe she needs to be checked, to see if
she was gay and all that crap, another manages
to say…I wish I could stand up and switch
places with her.
Maybe she could
“No, there is no problem but..why me?”
Samantha is curious
“Miss Samantha, like I said, the managerial
department is on the last floor, then we have
the human resources, the construction and other
departments below it, we have already placed
everyone where they would be spending their
internship for the next couple of months and
there is only you who has experiences in
management, according to your Cv, you have
also worked in organizations as an event
planner, consultant and also amongst other
things, you are good in secretarial admin as
well yes?””
“Yes” Samantha replies
“And that being the case, we have an opening in
the managerial department at the top floor,
where you would be assisting Betty here..when
she is not on sit, you would be in charge and
that means, you would be assisting Mr Bass
most times as his stand-in PA” she completes
The girls gasps.
What the hell was wrong with these people, he
was just a man. A man!!!!.
“So… if you think you are not competent enough
for the task Miss Samantha, you can step down
for someone else to fill in , I do not want
someone who is slow in understanding, and
looks daft to work with me. This would be
problematic for me Miss Andres, kindly find a
replacement, If not that Betty would be going on
leave in a couple of days, I won’t be looking for
a stand-in, she has worked with me long
enough and she seems competent enough even
though poorly, at least my patience hasn’t run
out on her..yet” He says
“Yes sir” The Andres woman nods
Samantha frowns.
what the hell does he mean that she was
incompetent by just looking at her, was it written
on her forehead “Hey look!! I am stupid and I
would work poorly, don’t hire me”??
She didn’t have those work experiences on her
Cv for nothing, she wasn’t stupid neither was
she daft… and she hates to be told she was
slow, she wasn’t slow, she just didn’t like his
Aura as soon as he walked in and didn’t want to
work with him.
Well fine “I can do it, and I rather appreciate sir
you don’t assume about my capabilities by
stressing it on incompetence at a first glance, I
can assure you, incompetence, daft and slow
isn’t the adjectives used in describing me”
“And what adjectives would that be Miss
“I would live that to you .., like they say Mr
Bass, seeing is believing “
“Miss Samantha Brooke, you would watch your
language when speaking to Mr Bass, he is your
superior and your boss, and your internship
here would be based on your good conduct,
based on your merit and hard work, this altitude
won’t get you very I advise you to
apologize to Mr Bass” Betty, standing close to
Mr Bass says
Oh wow!! What is she now, his savior , his
Calvary ?
Oh wait, she was Vol Tron, defender of the
universe or rather, Mr Bass’s enterprises !!
Let the man speak for himself, he knows how to
put people down, he should fight his battles.
Well, she won’t be apologizing, she didn’t say
anything wrong, she just stated what she wasn’t.
she mentally crossed her hands, puts her legs
on her invisible desks and waits.
That was no crime, unless it was in his books
she stares at him straight in the eye
“There is no need, No harm done” Mr Bass says
“I am sure Miss Samantha would mend her ways
soon enough and realize that here, we do not
suffer fools. For today, I let it pass” then he
turns to the interns
“Ladies, welcome, now that you all have been
fully apprised of your duties and fixed in your
departments, I do hope you enjoy it here, it’s a
stiff market out there and here, the competition
is stiffer, we may not be able to take all of you
after your internships but have no fear, we
would give you good referrals,
recommendations, and a worthy thank you
package for being part of us because here at
Bass, we take care of our own, and the interns
who do exceedingly well, you would be made
staffs, until then, work hard, be beautiful and
may the forces be with you” He smiles, they
gush again, Samantha felt like puking.
Was it just her or it felt as though she just
walked into a class of girls not minding an
orgy with Mr Bass himself, only that they
weren’t naked and all over themselves, they
were doing that with their eyes and mouth, if
only their eyes could do the magic. She rolls
her eyes again.
She literally felt like screaming “You all should
go get a room and beg him to join you, be less
obvious ” Lord !!!
He leaves, the lady , the one they call Betty
walks up to her “Follow me and I would show
you to your corner. I expect that you follow
through instructions, know his schedules and
meetings, timing and even every tiny detail even
to what he eats and the colour of tie , what he
likes and what floss he uses for his teeth, his
meals and lunch, his different suits for
different days…, dinner dates, kind of girl, loose
cash for what and what, his shirts..he loves
Oh really, do I have to know the colour of his
boxers too and if he likes to pee sitting like a
girl or standing like a man. She rolls her eyes
What am I, his babysitter??
Jamie didn’t tell me there was a big baby
running his daddy’s company.
They are walking as Betty continuous to talk “I
expect that you do know and have all these
information at your finger tips and because I
would be out of town for a few days and I
would not want this place to be in chaos before
I get back. Mr Bass likes things to be done
accordingly, he hates last minutes changes and
anything unorganized and uncoordinated so you
would do well to listen, be sharp, be quick and
attentive, you only have a couple of days to
learn all these before I leave understand
your duties and I also expect that you keep your
attitude in check, that thing you did in there
would only reward you with a kick to the door
and trust me, no one would miss you, they
would forget you in a minute, and Mr Bass’s
patience is thin, so don’t be smart.”
She takes her to her desk, right after hers “This
is where you would be working..and try not to
be lazy, He doesn’t like that, he likes us to be
smart, punctual and know what we are doing
and being paid for. Your first call of duty Is
already in that file, get to it” Betty leaves her to
A girl smiles to her across the hall, Samantha
smiles back.
For the next couple of days, Samantha does her
job, and before long she was getting the hang
of things, even sometimes helping Sophie with
issues she is having and attending to projects
Betty is too lazy about.
Then Betty goes on her leave, she would be out
for two weeks, which meant that she was Mr
Bass’s PA for that duration of time and she
wonders if she could switch with the secretary.
“Hi Sophie, Good Morning” Samantha walks to
Sophie looks up and smiles “Oh hi Sam, how are
you, how has this place being treating you, I
know we don’t talk much even despite being in
the same hall and stuff, Mr Bass keeps us on
our toes…huh?”
“Oh yes he does.. and I would rather you call
me Samantha or Brooke, Sam makes me feel as
though I shouldn’t be having these full things
on my chest” she answers, Sophie laughs “Ok
Samantha nods, “So Betty is going to be on
leave for two weeks and…”
“Oh yeah and boy am I glad, she just keeps
blocking my chances with the Boss, dude did
you see how hot and fine he was looking,” she
fans herself “I!!”
Samantha frowns “Okay…stop. Seriously you all
need to get all those vibes away from me. What
I mean is that, why don’t you PA for him while I
take your spot for the rest of the week, cool?””
Her eyes sparkles “For real??;’’
“Yep, realer than Santa clause at the moment ”
Samantha nods
“Oh wow!!” she claps in an excited glee
The Elevator door opens and then Sophie jumps
“Oh my duty starts now, thanks babes, you don’t
know how much this means to me” she carries
the iPad, picks up the file Samantha drops on
her desk as she came and rushes to meet him,
Samantha walks round her table and sits
“Oh Good morning sir” she hears Sophie greet
“Good morning Sophie, please coffee and where
is Betty, she didn’t meet me downstairs” he says
, not seeing Samantha as he walks to his door,
opening it and entering, Sophie dances behind
him, Samantha shakes her head, bends and
begins to type what Sophia was typing halfway,
she hears Sophie reminding him about Betty’s
leave before the door shuts behind her.
The door opens up barely ten minutes later and
then someone walks towards her, “Oh Sophie,
this Tsuki ventures, isn’t it supposed to be on
the construction file for Tuesday” Samantha
says without looking up
“Stand up Miss Samantha and step into my
office” he orders
Samantha’s head shots up “Sir? Good morning
Mr Bas-” she trails off as he turns and walks
away, Sophie is behind him “I am sorry, he
didn’t look happy about it “
“It’s okay” Samantha says going into the office
She knocks and enters, he is backing the door,
facing the window
“You asked for me Sir”
“I wonder if there is something wrong with you
or you are simply oblivious of your duties here,
or you lack basic understanding of and for
simple instructions Miss Brooke”
“I am sorry sir, I do not understand your burst
of anger?’ she frowns, really she didn’t.
“You are supposed to be my Personal assistant
for the duration of Betty’s leave is that not so?”
“Yes sir but ..”, he cuts her off with his index
finger up,
“But you choose not to shoulder your
responsibilities but give it to Sophie who is
nothing but my secretary, do you not have any
idea that there are pressing things that should
be attended to by my personal assistant and not
my secretary. You see both roles are distinctive,
separate. it’s like having a laborer choose to
work as a plumber even if they both work under
the same roof.., the laborer wouldn’t be able to
fully carry out the duties of a plumber, so do
you see how senseless your act is?”
Whoa!!! Samantha blinks
“With all due respect sir, did Sophie do anything
wrong when she attended to you just now?”
“That is irrelevant to my point of discussion” he
says turning to her
“Still because if she has worked for you for so
long and at the same time been assisting Betty
as well, I believe she should be well competent
to stand in as your PA too sometimes, and I
don’t see how a plumber and a laborer is
relevant to your point of discuss. I simply asked
if she could take my place while I attend to
some work, work I am simply good at.. and I
believe that standing around, staring at nothing
in particular, go for errands I don’t have
business going for and writing shot notes isn’t
exactly tasking enough. I like to be productive
and spend my hours doing something worthy
of value sir”
“So are saying that my PA does nothing
meaningful other than errands, stands and
“I didn’t say ..”
“Yes you did”
“No I said amongst other things, they are asked
to do errands that she shouldn’t ordinarily be
asked “
He is looking at her “Miss Samantha, be
“Well erm…. Having to know personal details
about you that needs to be attended to”
‘’like what Miss Brookes”
What is his problem, should she spell it out
“Well like..erm..your schedules and
meetings,which is okay..but your ties, socks,
eating ..that is, what you like and what you
don’t, erm..even who you have dinner with after
hours and who you want in your bed’’ there , she
said it
He smiles “And that bothers you?”
“It should bother any decent girl. You should
handle those yourself or do you say you have
your personal assistant dress you up? she isn’t
your designer or your caterer, not you $3x
timer..nor even your wife. I believe somethings
shouldn’t be amongst a job description..sir”
He is staring at her, then he smiles
“Sometimes..if they want to do it”
She blinks rapidly. Did he just let on that he
sleeps with his PA, no wonder she was quick to
come to his defense.
Then she frowns, men. They think because they
are handsome, rich and powerful they can do
and undo
“Well Mr Bass, your personal business is none
of my business, Betty can continue being your
PA in that aspect or more..but while she is
away, I won’t be whatever she was. “
whatever she was…Lord!!!
No wonder all the girls were drooling after him,
so how many had he slept with , five, ten, all of
them?? Her eyes grew big
“Why is your eyes about to pop out Miss
“Oh I just remembered something disgustingly
annoying my dog did”
What else could she say, she didn’t have a dog
“Which was?”
“ How he was a typically dog, fraternizing with
all the ladies and getting all of them
pregnant” Doesn’t that seem a lot like you Mr
He smiles , “Miss Samantha, let me make this
clear, as long as you are working here, this
would be the last time you would go against
orders given to you…and if you have to pick up
my suits, shop for my socks, and tie and fix my
date with a woman and change the sheets on
my bed before and after $3x with any lady
friend I have over, you would do it, what I pay
you even as an intern is enough to cater for
needs of children on the streets, now, you go
back there, take the files and what you gave to
Sophie and resume your PA duties and if you
feel I am being inconsiderate… you can drop
your letter of termination of internship and
leave. I would not allow insubordination or have
your loud mouth spew nonsense. Women aren’t
made to think, or be smart..because if they were
smart you would have realized that up to a
second ago you weren’t making sense other
than showing me seem not to like
leaving your comfort zone and you hate to be
told what you don’t like to do, but sadly enough
that is my specialty. Starting right this minute,
you would pick my lunch and bring it here, you
would check in with the designer for my suit, I
have a state dinner coming up, which you would
be in attendance and thirdly, I have a meeting
with some private investors, the file is on my
desk..the blue one, you are going to go through
it, the notes I have made and compile it and
makes sure you have it ready by tomorrow.
Mind you there are two files is for
the Tsuki ventures , and the other most
important one is for the Gulen Services and
their oil reserve I am hoping to buy.. make sure
you dot every I’s and cross every T’s and
prepare it for the meeting by tomorrow. lastly,
you will come in here and sit across from me
and stare at me while I work and not make any
sound. If that is not okay with you…I will gladly
accept your letter.”
Dxxk!!! Who does he think he is?
Oh this is what I am going to do with your letter
Mr Bass, I am going to roll it up and shove it up
your rectum..
You think you can scare and bully me, me??
Hell No!!
“Never underestimate me sir, I would be back
shortly, because I can do all of that without
blinking, and I can juggle between Betty’s job
and that of Sophie’s too and maybe some of
She excuses herself and walks away
He is smiling , Typical
He knew her type, all mouth and no action, he
was waiting for her letter.
He was surprised that she was even bold to talk
to him that way.
She comes back in, file and iPad in her hands,
no letter “Ready to begin when you are ..SIR”!!!
He was impressed, and he didn’t like it.
