“Are you for real?” Jamie asks her,
“You didn’t have to come all the way here for
that” Samantha opens the door wide for her
friend to come in
“Are you kidding? For this kind of juicy gist, I
would cross the mountain and seven seas, tell
me again what happened” Jamie enters, plops
on the chair and stares at her friend.
“Well, he saw me and then followed me, went
all pompous ass on me and of course, you
know I never liked that and…”
“No tell me the part where he kissed you?”
Samantha thins her lips “ Well I was telling him
to get out of my way and he just grabs me and
kisses
me… Arghhh! I was so furious, so.. I slapped
him, you should have seen the look on his face,
he was shocked… I guess he never gets that
reaction from his lady friends and I am not
even his friend, I do not like him, in fact I find
him terribly annoying and he doesn’t like me
either, he is such an egocentric bastard, and
what did he think, I would just swoon and kiss
him back….noooo!!! not me, I slapped him and
shoved him out of my way… he is crazy, what
the hell was wrong with him, typical man… and I
hate typical men.. what was he thinking? walk
up to me, draw up his chauvinist attitude and
when I don’t bulge and apologize he goes… kiss
her, she becomes a jelly?… oh I am glad I reset
his brains”
Jamie was looking at her “Okay let me get this
straight, my $3xy ass rich boss grabs you and
kisses you, it doesn’t matter for whatever
reason he did that but he kisses you and all you
could think about is not to kiss him back but to
slap him, literally… I mean those lips, that face
and that body pressed to you and instead for
you to melt..yes I said melt, don’t look at me
like you… you push him and you slap him… oh
dear lord, give me water, I want to faint… no fan
please” she touches her head and then neck…
“No’’ she gets up and touches Samantha’s
forehead and her neck, Samantha hits her
hands away
“Stop it Jamie, you sound like a loved sick
deranged puppy”
“No I really need to check because…wow
Samantha..he kissed you…and you walked out
of there with both your legs standing straight. I
would buckle, I would grow weak and I would
ask for more”
“Good thing I wasn’t you. I still have my senses
intact”
“So you really didn’t feel anything …?” She
docks as Samantha throws her a throw-pillow,
she laughs
“Don’t be silly Jamie, really? it’s been how long
know, you should know I wasn’t even remotely
interested in men for a bit now and Mr Bass is
the last man on earth I would ever think off…’’
“You know he asked around for you”
“Yeah he mentioned, and you mentioned and
what did he want ? to pay me for my work…well
he can shove it up his rectum”
Jamie sighs “I miss the old you, you used to be
nice, warm and sweet”
“Yes and had people like Christopher run a mile
with me no!… I know who I am and what I want,
and bending to the whims and caprices of men,
especially men like Mr Bass is something I
would never do. Imagine he had a female
companion for the evening and yet he comes
after me to prove his point that he was angry
and needed to sort it out with me? What a
laugh..he has no respect for women and I made
him see that, maybe those women don’t value
themselves but I do and if any man treats me
anyway I don’t like, boss, friend, colleague,
father, even lover, I would put them in their
place, I am sure Mr Bass got that loud and
clear… he would stay clear away from me”
“You will end up alone baby, men like to
dominate and be on-top..well I like being on top
too sometimes” she laughs, Samantha shakes
her head
“Well it’s my life, and who cares if that’s how
their biological makeup is, no man would be the
boss of me in my personal life and space..no
way” her phone rings
“work?’’ Jamie asks
She shakes her head “It’s Saturday, I don’t work
on Saturdays but it’s Mr Shelton ..give me a
second Jamie”
Samantha gets up to answer the call
“Yes Mr Shelton, good morning , how are you..
oh I am fine. Thank you sir. Okay..wait !what did
you just say? Sir, I would rather not. Mr
Shelton, okay fine I would go by and i would put
one of the staffs on it sir, okay.. you too” she
hangs up
“What’s wrong, you look like you just had an
annoying call, what happened ?”
“Who do you think , Mr Bass happened”
Samantha frowns throwing the phone to the
chair
Jamie laughs “Blast from the past, Sam… you
are definitely on Mr Bass’s radar, good or bad I
don’t know but honey, I would love to see how
this ends”
“Not funny Jamie, Mr Shelton asks me to go by
the Bass industries, something about me
planning his charity event, well I have told him
that I would go by but I would not be the one in
charge, we have good capable hands and they
can handle it. I don’t know the kind of devil
juice Mr Bass is on but I believe he is out to get
me to be angry…”
“Oh girl take it easy, and try to not spill another
coffee on him okay… he was spitting fire for a
week”
“Well, I have water, I would put it out and make
sure he drowns in it”
Janie is smiling “Hmmm”
“What is that supposed to mean, hmmm?”
“Oh nothing, it’s just that I am wondering why he
asked for you specifically’’
“Maybe to show me that he can get what he
wants when he wants and how, he is Mr Bass
alright, money talks , bullshit works”
“True that”
“Well I am Samantha Brookes, he would have to
learn how to be schooled in proper mannerism,
my mother didn’t groom me up to take shit
from pompous assholes like that”
“True that”
“Whose side are you on anyways? My side or his
side?”
“Oh me? I am on whoever wins side and on my
side, sorry love, I would come and give you
moral support but, I love my job, so I would
give you a hug and a kiss to your cheeks
MWUAAAAH!!!, let me know what happens okay
but for my sake and for every woman’s sake…
if he kisses you again, take one for the team
and kiss him back, we that aren’t privileged to
be kissed by him would tap into it through you”
“Get out Jamie”
“Yes I am going. I love you Sam”
“I love you too”
********
Samantha didn’t think she was coming back
here ever again, but just like the devil rearing
up its ugly head, My Bass shows up ..
It was bad enough they had a disastrous
working relationship..now they would cause
another world war if they happen to work
together again, Well she wanted her own peace
of mind…so she would let him know she was
going to put another person on his event
“Good morning Miss Samantha” Todd says as
she walks in
“Good morning Todd, it’s been awhile.. I am
here to see Mr Bass”
“I know ma’am, I am here to take you to him”
“And where is he?’
“At his residence “
“Why isn’t he here “
“I am just doing my job”
“I was told that Mr Bass would be at his
company and that is where I am to meet him
and if he isn’t here then I would leave”
“No one works on Saturdays ma’am and besides
he asked that I bring you to his residence so
that you can have a meeting there”
“Well he should have thought of that before
fixing a meeting. Please kindly put a call across
to Mr Bass and let him know that I am here ,
and if he doesn’t come here as he had fixed I
would go home’’ she tells him, Todd is taken
aback… “I Can’t do that ma’am I –”
He stares at her for a few minutes, unsure on
what to do, no one had ever refused to go meet
Mr Bass, how does he tell him?.
Then his phone rings…
MR BASS
“Yes sir?’’
“Has she arrived?”
“Yes sir”
“Are you on your way?”
“No sir”
“Why?”’
“She erm..she erm sir I mean” he trails off
Samantha rolls her eyes and takes the phone
away from him “Good morning Mr Bass,
Samantha brookes here “
“Samantha Brookes, I do believe my driver told
you that-‘’
“Mr Bass, you had called Mr Shelton to fix a
meeting with me and it would be in your
company office by 9am. On a Saturday
morning, which ordinarily should have been my
free day, you should know that since your
company isn’t open on a weekend but you
choose to disrupt mine, yet again as usual, in
any case, I have agreed to meet with you and I
get here, 8:45 and where are you? at home
doing God knows what and then you ask your
driver to take me to your residence? What am I?
Your booty call? Mr Bass, again, you forget that
I will not be ordered, not by anyone or even
you. That being said… please we should meet
when and where you have originally stated. This
is 9am already and in the next thirty minutes I
would be going home and I would please ask
that you do not contact my boss again, there are
a few others that can do what you require, it
doesn’t have to be me”
“Miss Samantha Brookes you will not-“
She cuts the call and gave the phone to Todd..
“I am going to be here for 30 minutes, and if Mr
Bass doesn’t miraculously show up I would
leave” she says going to sit down
Todd is staring from her to his phone and then
back to her.
******
“Did she just cut the call on me?” Jake Bass
stares at the phone, he wished he had her
number to call her and shout her head off, but
he didn’t. How dare she give him an order, him,
Jake Bass take orders from a woman? No way
“Hello Todd” Bass says as Todd picks “Kindly
tell Miss Samantha that if she doesn’t follow
you as I have ordered I will place a call across
to Mr Shelton and she may not like the outcome

Todd is away for a few minutes , “Hello Sir?
Erm… she said you can go ahead, it wouldn’t be
the first time to be fired by her Boss for no just
cause”
What in the world?’ he frowns holding the
phone tight
“Tell her that she wouldn’t be able to get
another recommendation to work in another
place, and that I would make sure that she is
miserable “
Another few minutes
“She says you have about 25 minutes left Sir”
“WHAT NONSENSE!!!’’ Bass shouts
“I … I am sorry sir”
“Tell Miss Samantha that , I will not spare her
arrogance, tell her that…”
“sir I am sorry but she says you bark more than
you bite and that you have 24 minutes left and
that sir am so sorry I really don’t want to
deliver the rest of her message to you sir”
Jake Bass is fuming.
“Fine tell her I am not coming” he cuts the call
First she undermines his authority, while they
were working together, then in front of his
guests and staffs, and then now his driver…
Ohhh Samantha brookes, he squeezes his phone
..
Well to hell with her, he wasn’t going. If she
doesn’t come here as he has commanded he
isn’t going. He would just get another person to
run point man for his charity event.
Who the hell does she think she is.. Because he
kissed her? A kiss he regretted and she slapped
him.
Oh he was going to show her why he was called
Jake Bass and no woman alive can make him
bend his rules or give him orders..
He wasn’t stepping a foot out of his door, it
was Saturday..to hell with her. For her
punishment, let her wait, get tired and leave .
*
“9:30 on the dot” she says getting up
“Okay Todd, let your boss know that I have left
and he should please do well to not call me
again, he can call the office directly and speak
to Shelly if he needs someone for his event’’
she gave him a card..,
“please call me a taxi”
Todd nods
He escorted her outside, flagging a taxi and she
enters “Have a good day Miss”
“And you too” she smiles turning away as the
car pulls away
Another car pulls up a second apart, Bass
comes out , Todd was so surprised he does a
double take
“Sir ..erm Mr Bass I thought you said, erm…”
“Where is the ingrate?”
Todd frowns, “She just left sir..”
“Where, what direction?”
“A red Taxi with a billboard sign of a
cliffhanger on it, down south… about 1 minute
ago”
Bass enters back into the car and takes the
same route, if he was lucky he would meet her
before she disappears
*
Samantha alights from the car, pays her fares
and walks to her door, she opens it and gets in,
shutting it behind her
In less than a minute, she receives a knock,
frowning she takes off her shoes and removes
her jacket…
she wonders if it was Jamie, it was only Jamie
that knew where she stayed, she didn’t have
much friends and she had never invited them
over, or maybe it was one of the neighbors ..
Knock knock knock
“Be right there “ she says going to the door, if it
were Jamie she would have bellowed at the top
of her voice for her …
As soon as she opens the door she had shock
registered on her face, then she peers outside
and then back at him, then she frowns “ Where
did you come from?”
“From my car apparently”
“What are you doing here… and did you follow
me and why?”
“That is not important..”
“Right. Mr Bass we were supposed to meet at
your office which you changed rather suddenly
and I do not like last minute changes, especially
when I am not pre-informed. Then you went
ahead and said you were not coming but I gave
you 30 more minutes by waiting. It is now few
minutes before 10, think by right, the meeting
has been cancelled so… why are you here, I
think it’s called a crime when you follow
someone to their residence without informing
them”
“Look Miss Samantha, I do not appreciate that
you refuse orders, I mean what sort of woman
are you, so what if I changed the time and
meeting place it still doesn’t mean anything”
“Oh it does Mr Bass, in my books”
Such feisty attitude, he shakes his head
“Well, wouldn’t you invite me in Miss Samantha,
I think it’s highly inappropriate that I am
standing here and having your neighbors peep
out their windows and doors. We can discuss
why I wanted to have a meeting with you” he
says looking around as a few heads popped out
Samantha smiles ruefully, and here he was
again, throwing orders , he doesn’t learn
“Mr Bass, you called for a meeting and you
alone disrupted that. I dropped a card with
Todd, your driver, you can call the number on it
and speak with Shelly, she would attend to you”
“I do not want to speak with Shelly or whoever
she is… Mr Shelton had told me you are top of
his best team and you will be the one to be in
charge of my event, Mr Shelton and I have
already agreed and I am paying him a lot of
money for the organization and a tad more. So
Miss Samantha, would you invite me or should I
invite myself?” she didn’t say anything, he takes
a step forward and she stops him with her
finger, shaking her head
“Mr Bass, if you want to have another meeting
with me, call my office and book an
appointment , I would check my schedule and I
would get back to you ‘”
“You must be out of your mind if you think I
would do that” he thunders
She laughs “No you must be seriously insane if
you think you can boss me around” she nudges
him backwards by poking her finger to his
chest, as soon as he stepped back she smiles
“Have a good weekend Mr Bass and if you
knock on my door, I will call the police and tell
them I have a serial stalker at my door”
“Miss Samantha I will not allow yo-‘’
She shuts the door on his face, he hears it lock
twice.
He squeezes his fists in anger, ready to bang on
the door, but people were staring … he puts on
a fake smile, adjusted his suit, walks back to
his car and drives off
If she thinks he was going to do that, she was
mistaken.
Why the hell does he even have to use her for
his charity.
She was rude, annoying, she was very
unladylike, talking to him that way, no respect
..no..no
Admit it Bass, she ruffles your feathers..
Damn it !!
He hated her
DAMN IT!! He swears again
