They leave the hall immediately after the

meeting comes to an end. Jake Bass had

spoken to a few people trying to salvage the

mess already made but Mr George was proving

difficult. There was no use, until another year,

his window for the CEO’s company project for

the Engineering Institute of oil and gas was


He was furious, shaking hands and giving them

a brief smile he carried his shoulders up, and

taking his leave from the rest as they too began

to enter into their cars, leaving. Samantha had

been sitting in the car waiting for him..

She had spent all night working on those files,

all of them..not a wink of sleep had she had,

she had filed them up, arranged it and without

as much as a close of the eyes she had rushed

a bath, without eating had gone to the office,

and placed those files on his desk, arranged

them in his shelves and even tagged them. She

remembered putting the files she needed on the

table and gathered them into her bag as she

was talking to Todd on the phone. She did

carry them so how come the most important

file wasn’t there unless…unless she had mixed

it up without knowing…


Now because of her he had lost an opportunity

he had been working towards for a year,

because of her he had been embarrassed by

that pigged –faced Mr George who seems to be

in charge of the elders council, and because of

her carelessness he had shouted …okay, not

shouted, but he had rudely, and annoyingly

snapped at her, and then he had told her he

was going to slap her.. after she had spent her

days putting up with his arrogance, his annoying

and pompous self, after cancelling her plans

..well she didn’t have any plans because she

didn’t have a boyfriend, or a dog not even a cat

to hang out with and she had been too busy

being his PA since his bedmate ..erm PA betty

had been on leave.. which was besides the

point, even if she didn’t have a plan or plans or

a supposed social life it still didn’t mean that he

had the right to infringe on her non-social life

and have her non-social life be cancelled

because he is Mr Bass.

She had literally worked her ass off, and it was

a mistake an honest mistake, a mistake that she

wasn’t even aware off.

“Stupid stupid stupid” she hits her forehead with

her open palm.

But he didn’t have to talk to her like that, like

she was not even a reasonably person. It wasn’t

as though she didn’t do her job, she did. Now it

would look as though she didn’t even try. But

she had, she had…and she did a darn good job,

even Sophie was impressed. But all that hard

work gone, because she didn’t check the files ,

like crosscheck the files again that she had left

it on the table before putting them in her bag,

she couldn’t understand anything.

She was angry.. he had no right. OK! Yes he

was angry, yes he should be angry. It was

understandable, what he had planned for

months couldn’t be achieved because of her but

she didn’t do it on purpose, if he wanted to get

angry and scold her, she would have taken

it..not well but she would have taken it. She

always owned up to her faults and took

responsibilities for her mistakes but, the way

he spoke to her with such disdain, even she

was shocked and his choice of words were

uncalled for.. she made a mistake but she

wasn’t stupid and an unintelligent fool. She had

gone to school and did come out with

distinction, she had been amongst the youths

pioneering educative stances in her department,

she had indulged in intelligent discuss bordering

on society, the government and politics. She

was far from dumb..no. she wasn’t even close

to being stupid…and he said all that’s inside her

head was money, fun and whatnot?

Does he have any idea what she does for fun?

Solve Maths, read an Encyclopedia, put her

mind to good use solving puzzles, putting down

possible solutions for upcoming brands and

companies, even counseling and when she isn’t

all about being serious she enjoys a time out

with her best friend Jamie, and when there was

a boyfriend? an occasional stroll to

MacDonalds, the movies and skating ring doing

the snow, karaoke bar…and no..she has never

been a materialistic kind of girl, that was why

her ex-boyfriend was content on living off her

and not bothering to buy her something as

small as a toothpick and she wonders why she

ever fell in love with him in the first place

“It was his eyes, his dreamily eyes and mac-

steamy body without his shirt, his rich voice and

the fact that he was a great kisser and he was

such good lay and he was smart and sweet

and… loving and caring and he… he understood

me” she remembers telling Jamie who rolled

her eyes

“That bin there is where Boy Wonder should go

in and remain” was what Jamie had told her as

she cried over him that day after catching him

red handed sleeping with his friends girl and he

had the guts to tell her what they both had was

fun but he didn’t even love her and that…in fact

he had been having an open relationship with

her for months, and she had cried and wailed

because she loved him and was been exclusive

with him..the asshole shrugged, he didn’t care,

leaving there she had come home to find out

that her credit cards bounced when she entered

a supermarket to get somethings for the house

that was long overdue.

“Boy problem?” the lady at the counter had

looked at her and her wet eyes and deduced,

she had cried even harder, “Ssssh its okay,

chocolates and ice-cream works magic for

broken hearts, trust me I know” she had patted

her hands, but when her card bounced, she had

to ask her “you don’t have any money girl?’’.. it

wasn’t possible, she had money, enough, not

Bill Clinton stacked money in the bank but it

was enough to last her for a couple of months.

She had been on a contract job and they had

just recently finished a project, she was an

event manager, and they only contact her for

when they needed her, she did two other jobs

on contracts too and the pay was good, that was

why she could afford a nice apartment and a

car, which he took for his..and the house which

he practically lived in with her.

And when she called the bank to demand what

was up, they told her she had just withdrawn all

her savings within the hour, ..

“I always told you not to be stupid. Your money

is your money girl and his money is for you


“But he didn’t have any money, he was looking

for a job” she remembered saying

“Yeah, the pity party materializes into a $3xy

man and you fell in love with him and while you

slept the pity party took away your mansion and

kicked you out of your own home Samantha…

didn’t I warn you?”

“But I love him” Samantha wailed, drooling into

her hanky, her eyes red and puffy, she was still

wearing his shirt.

“I swear if you say that again I would literally

slap you with this spatula and I mean it, then I

would apologize and slap you again till you

forget his name and your stupid love ..he was a

leach, a pest and a blood sucker “

Samantha had wailed… breaking out of her

reverie she sighs as she watched as

he walked towards the car.

He had no right to talk to her like that, and he

had no right to sack her like that without giving

her a chance to explain, or to apologize or

even to find a solution…okay she couldn’t solve

it but still he didn’t have to talk to her like that.

Her eyes stings with tears, she wipes it away

immediately as he enters into the car, his anger

could be felt and even seen as his veins were

threatening to pop out.

Taking a deep breath she made to try again

“Sir Bass, I am so sorry about what happened in

there I swear it wasn’t on purpose I swear it and


“Shut up Samantha, you do not want me to

unleash my anger on you, just shut up. You

don’t realize how bad this is do you? you think

your calm soothing voice can abate my anger,

you think that crocodile watery eyes would save

you? And back at the office you don’t waste

time to let go of the sharp retorts on your

tongue always trying to prove something you

are not, I left you from the beginning because

you were pitiful, a girl who thinks she could

stand up to her boss and get away with it, but I

knew you were nothing but a very

malfunctioned girl, and I felt why not allow her

believe she has the ability to change the world

but in retrospect I was taking pity on you

because no one would have tolerated your

nonsense , I could have easily thrown you out

of my company but I let you, hoping you would

have the sense one day when you have been

tamed, and now, amongst other things, you did

utter rubbish , mixed up a file, common file a

child would have handled, how stupid can you

be Samantha? how senselessly careless.. I have

worked with Betty and Sophie for a long time

and even they..which their IQ is low by the way

..is still better than yours. You are a liability to

me and my company and because I would not

want this to ever repeat itself you shall

immediately tender your resignation, your

working package for the month would be sent

to you via the accountant; take your stupid

unintelligent self away from my company. I

know you also didn’t work on those files you

took home, God knows maybe you went out

partying and clubbing , draped over a man’s

arms all night and forgot to do something

simple as filing , editing and compiling and this

morning your waltz in thinking about first class

ticket in a plane you have never been in,

thinking of five star restaurants and all this with

a billionaire you forgot to get your head out of

your ass. I know your type Samantha, stupid,

unintelligent, money conscious and a luxury

magnet attaché, that is why you are totally

useless to me, much like a dumb blonde, no, at

least they are sophisticated dumb, you are just

pitiful, and a pitiful person with a sharp mouth

is an eyesore” he spat looking at her as

Samantha blinks back tears

“I am sorry sir..but, surely it wasn’t on purpose

..I am not a dog that needs to be tamed and I

am a person, not perfect and we do make

mistakes but I assure you that I am not stupid,

and your choice of words are degrading and I

refuse to be spoken to that way sir, I will not–”

He grabs her hand and pulls her “Shut up

Samantha just shut the hell up. In fact, pull

over driver.”

“Sir?”’ the driver is confused

“I said Pull over !!’’ he snaps, as soon as the

driver does, he opens the door, giving her one

of his credit cards, writing out four digit

numbers on it

“Here, take this and get out from the car, your

presence is infuriating me even further”

“You are kicking me out, in the middle of a city I

have no idea about?” she is shocked,

disbelieving as her mouth drops open and her

eyes grew wider

“You have my credit card Samantha, book

yourself a private car to take you to the airport,

book a flight , when you land, go to the office,

pick up your items, drop my card with Sophie, if

you try to be smart, I already know how much

an economic class ticket cost, and I would be

putting a call to my accountant , there is a limit

of withdrawal on the card… so what I expect

you to take away is for your flight, transport

fare to the airport and from the airport to the

office, anything more than the stipulated

amount I would send to him , all transactions

would be stopped, I know girls like you would

want to steal my money seeing that is all that

concerns people like you, as soon as you get to

the office, I will also get Sophie to pack up your

table, drop my card, your letter and leave, and

now, get out of my face” he says holding out

the credit card for her

She blinks..

“I don’t need anything from you Mr Jake Bass, I

would find my way home” she alights from the

car, carrying her bag and slams the door shut..

Angered!! How dare he!!!!

“Suit yourself” he winds down the window,

turning away with his face still granite as his

fine features is dampened with his frown, he

tells the driver “ Drive”, the windows goes up as

the car speeds off immediately .

She stood there watching the car leave.. she

blinks back the tears threatening to fall, until

the car disappears .. then she moves to the

curb, she sits on the pavement and let the tear

drop. She had never felt so humiliated and

talked down to ever in her entire life. Never felt

so horrible and angered and pissed and then

sad, all the emotions put together. She messed

up the file business, Yes. But he was a bad bad

person, very bad. He was arrogant, unforgiving,

a proud pompous dxxk, and he feels that all

should bow to him , she rather walk on the

streets than take his stupid credit card. She

cleans her eyes and look at her environment.

She didn’t have any idea on how she was going

to get back..

She brings out her phone from her bag..

“Just one last time, just one” she says as she

cleans her eyes. She dials a number and then

someone picks “Hey mum!!’’


When he was angry, everything shuts down,

everything , and that includes thinking straight.

He knew how hard he had worked to get the

partners interested in that institute, it would

have been great for the location he had in mind

and he would have been the largest share

holder, but it would have been government

approved, for international bodies, and the team

put down in place were professionals, the best

in the country… it would have been a master

piece. He could have done it on his own, he had

the money..well technically he had, but like they

say..sometimes you need to be part of

something bigger than just you and this was

it..this was his baby project and all gone

because of the incompetence and carelessness

of that stupid Samanatha Brookes.

He is in the plane now..

Maybe he shouldn’t have been so angry, at least

he would have tolerated her presence till they

got back into the state… then he would have

kicked her out. He frowns, not wanting to think

about how she was getting home, she looked all

classy, surely she would have means to go

home, even if she spends all that she had, at

least it would be her own extra punishment.

He lost a whole year’s work because of her, a

little lose of money on her part would be

punishment enough, then he would have her

resignation letter.

He turns away, removing her and the incidence

from his mind as they plane set for take off. It

was just 1pm, he would be back within the


The state dinner was this evening, by 4pm, and

he was hosting it in his company .


It was 5pm when Samantha got to The Bass

building , seeing lots of cars and well dressed

people trouping into the hall area of the


She walks in and takes her left, with a fixed

smile she greeted the staffs she knew and

made her way upstairs. Jamie had given her a

thousand calls, she didn’t have time to talk, she

would call her later. And then Sophie too.. Mr

Bass must have called her.

She patted the letter in her bag, she had written

it on the plane. Her mother had wanted to know

what she wanted to do with that huge amount of

money..and she had told her ..but she promised

to pay her back after she gets another job. They

weren’t rich, not even close to being very

comfortable, but her mother tried to gather the

money for her from friends..and sent it to her.

She paid for her flight and came back to the

state. And her mother had been worried, he

made her worry her mother and so she was


She didn’t meet Sophie on the floor, her box

was stacked already. Without another word she

goes to his office and drops the letter on his

table, his box of pen had poured to the ground

as she hits it. Bending she picks it up and there

is was..on the floor behind the chair..The file. it

must had slipped while she and Sophie arranged

the files. She puts it on his table too and leaves

with her box..

“Samantha ..Samantha ?” she turns when she

hears her name
