Samantha arrives the Shelton’s Consultation,

Business and Events Company, she alights from

the taxi and goes through the reception area

“Good morning Pierce” she greets the door man

and smiles at the receptionist who was attending

to a client.

She takes her right, going up the stairs to her

office, which was next to Mr Shelton and his

Secretary

“Beautiful morning to you Shelly” Samantha

smiles

“Oh morning Samantha, looking beautiful as

always this Monday morning”

“Aww you look beautiful yourself” Samantha

smiles heading to her office as Shelly follow

her

“Thank you, so I have the reports on the table,

the accumulation of completed events for the

past three months, we are starting our

publication for this month and Mr Shelton wants

you to be part of the photo shoot for that, “

Samantha face palms “I wonder why?”

“He says it would look good, he would call it the

face of Shelton enterprises. You know since

you began working here, we have been getting

good job offers, he calls you the magic touch”

“Mr Shelton is so dramatic”

“And aside that, you have some few

appointments today, one is from Mrs Stevenson,

she said she met you at the gala event,

something about hosting the senators over at

her country house?’’

“Oh yes, sweet old lady… and who else?’’

“Two meetings with the LORTS, one is for a

business proposal and the other is for

charitable means “

“Okay, and that is for what time?”

“By 1 pm, then Mrs Stevenson is by 3 pm, and

you have another by 9 am”

Samantha frowns “that’s now Shelly”

“I know, but the question is with who… I mean

who?’’

Samantha leans back on her chair and stares at

her “I am guessing with someone who obviously

has a name?”

Shelly was trying to hide her smile which was

threatening to burst her face, she was biting her

lips

“Guess guess!!”

“I do despise the guessing games Shelly, who is

my meeting with?”

“oh… MR JAKE BASS. He got here about fifteen

minutes ago, he had been with Mr Shelton, he

said you come in by 9 am. They were behind a

closed door meeting and they had asked that I

fix your first meeting with Mr Bass” she purrs,

she leans on Samantha’s table and fans herself

“He is so handsome, his rich voice, his skin,

that body within those cloths” she gasps

Samantha shakes her head, well at least he took

her advice, only partially, he was supposed to

call and book a meeting and she was supposed

to check her schedule and get back to him… not

like this

He still needs to understand permission, not

enforced rights

“Tell Mr Bass that we can meet by 11 am today,

that I have some other meetings to attend to”

Samantha says, Shelly’s mouth drops open, she

blinks rapidly

“I am sorry I didn’t get that”

“Should I repeat it for you?”

“No I heard it but I don’t understand it.. I mean…

do you know how many girls who are staffs

here had walked into the room he is in right

now, offering him coffee, or a snack, or to

pretend as though she had something to do in

there? that amazing looking person is out there,

waiting to have a meeting with you and you

don’t want to have a meeting with him… why?”

“And I don’t have to explain myself Shelly,

ordinarily, shouldn’t there have been a pre-

informed meeting? The ones fixed for today

didn’t they talk to me about it first before we

opened up schedules for them?’’

“Erm yes they did but… he is Jake Bass… I think

he should be given an exception”

“The more reason why he should not be treated

differently”

“But Mr Shelton ..’’

“I will handle Mr Shelton”

“but, he is there… waiting” Shelly couldn’t

believe her ears

“Then hurry up and tell him his meeting has

been moved to 11 Shelly” Shelly pouts, drags

her feet and leaves

*******

“I am sorry what?’’

“Your meeting with Miss Samantha has been

moved to 11 am, she has other meetings to

attend to. I am so sorry sir, do I offer you

anything, more coffee or snack or something

else, maybe juice or’’

“Stop talking , I was told she was free this

morning, and Mr Shelton also said so. I just

came out of the meeting with him, finalizing

plans and you tell me she has refused to have a

sit down with me?” he is angry. He had said he

wasn’t going to do what she asked, and this

morning… he had found himself telling Todd to

bring him down here, sat down with Shelton,

discussed and fixed a meeting with her.

This wasn’t him taking orders from a woman,

oh no.

This was him just making sure his event had

good hands and now he was here himself and

she had the audacity to re-fix what he had fixed.

He gets up… “Show me to her office, and I will

not take no for an answer, this nonsense has to

stop” Shelly nods and ushers him to follow her

*

“Come in” Samantha says

“I am sorry but he didn’t take it well” Shelly

says apologetically

Jake Bass nudges her out of the way and steps

in, “Miss Samantha I think you have insulted my

intelligence for far too long, how dare you-‘’

“Mr Bass if you don’t mind, I need you to keep

your voice down, and then secondly, you cannot

bounce into my office that way, and thirdly… did

you realize you nudged the secretary aside just

to show your animal-istic behavior? please

apologize to the lady” she says

“Are you out of your mind?’’ he takes a step

further

“No sir, I am serious and when you do that, can

you please step out of my office, and wait for

the time you have been booked for… which is 11

am”

Shelly’s mouth hits the ground a second time,

the heat radiating from Bass’s body as his

anger flew was enough to iron her cloths

“Samantha, no need for that, it wasn’t a nudge…

really Mr Bass I do apologize for Miss

Samantha and-’’

“Oh please do not apologize on my behalf

Shelly, and it is very inappropriate for you to

apologize when you are not wrong, well Mr

Bass, what would it be?”

Jake Bass takes another step towards her…

Samantha raises an eyebrow, she folds her

hands and remains seated..

“You will answer to this” he says storming out

Shelly stares at him and then at Samantha “what

have you done?”

“That would be all Shelly’

*

“Hello sir?” Samantha answers her phone “Very

well sir”

She drops the call, leaving her office , she

finds Shelly standing close to Mr Shelton’s

office, her eyes worried when she looks at her

“I think he is getting you fired, oh Samantha,

please apologize to him… he was so angry, you

shouldn’t have talked to him that way”

Samantha smiles, very typical of him. He runs

to her boss to get her fired, she was angry

now… apologize to Mr Bass? Hell no, till hell

freezes over

She was proud but within her rights, if she was

in a place that was not conducive for her she

would forget the money and leave, she had had

it too rough in her life time to know that nothing

else matters other than her happiness and her

peace of mind.

She had learnt it the hard way, constantly

pleasing people, bosses, colleagues, friends,

lovers etc which only caused more harm than

good and she had told herself “Never Again”

If she had to leave that job, she would. If she

had to leave that relationship and sever that

friendship, she would, If she had to start all

over again from the scratch, she would.

After she moved away three months ago,

working in a bar as a waitress, doing cleric jobs

in the library she had learnt a lot, suffered

some days and had to pick herself up on others

days.

Then she had ran into Mr Shelton, she had

organized a children’s birthday party for the

owner of the restaurant she was working in, and

despite the little money he wanted to spend for

his kid’s birthday, she had made it into

something magical, and before long, friends

and family had walked up to her to ask her to

plan their events, birthdays, Showers, and then

her big break, was a wedding ceremony.

She had always thought she would end up in a

business tycoon office, solving big problem and

putting her brain to work. She soon found out

that she loved what she was doing and Mr

Shelton had been a friend to the family,

who had walked up to her after the party and

given her a offer, an offer she was happy to

accept

His company which was partly an event

company hasn’t been doing so good..

And within three weeks, she had stepped up

from being a contract staff to being a lead

team member and within a month, she had

gotten an office, a raised check, and she had

moved back to town into a comfortable

apartment and the company began to roll In

bucks. She was an asset to the company now

and she did make sure that whatever privilege

she had here, she earned it, with her hard work,

and when it came to the business side of the

company, she was also a consultant to them

and other business owners, so she still

functioned with her brain here and hands.

Now because of his bruised ego, Bass goes to

her boss? Well she was mad and even if her

boss lets her go (which she wouldn’t blame

him), it would still be nice to tell Mr Bass to his

face what she thinks of him and one would be

that he was a complete jerk amongst other

things.

He likes to give orders and then he cries wolf

when someone else gives him orders. Or was

he pained that it was a woman giving him

orders, a woman who would ordinarily fall to

his feet is rising above him? She shakes her

head.

“Well Mr Bass, I do not bend to rules, rules

given by men like you so if you want my

respect you would have to earn it, and doing

this..all this, throwing your money around and

slapping faces and screaming do you know who

I am is pitifully and laughable.” . Yes I know

who you are… you are the man who can’t bend

me… rather I would teach you how to respect

others who you think are beneath you’

Samantha knocks and walks into the office ,

Jake Bass with legs crossed doesn’t look at her,

Mr Shelton is seated, he is worried

“Good morning Mr Shelton, “

“Hello Samantha, please seat” she does, she

doesn’t spare Bass a glance

“Mr Jake Bass has put me in a rather difficult

situation , and I would want you to reconsider

his offer, and everyone would be happy”

“And what would that be sir?”

“He has said he would redraw being a sponsor

to our Gala events and others, and he would

pull out from our future activities if I don’t

relief you of your duties or make you be team

lead for his charity event coming up”

Samantha smiles “And what is your decision

sir?’’

He sighs “You are one of my best here

Samantha and losing you would be a blow to

the company, so I would love to plead to you to

reconsider” he says

Well, as always this was it… men trying to rule

the lives of another because of wealth and

status.

“My mother used to tell me while growing up to

never let anyone, make me feel less than I am,

not to be devalued or treated as anything other

than what I am and if I feel my peace of mind

is being threatened and my state of affairs too,

I should do what is in my best interest, and if

walking away is in my interests I should do that,

because no amount of money can buy

happiness”

“So what are you saying Samantha?”

Jake Bass is staring at her with a smile on his

face, this was the part where she would break

down in tears and then apologize to him, then

he would remain angry, and say he doesn’t care

about her crocodile tears and then still ask for

her to be relieved and then she would beg and

plead some more and because he has the power

to change destinies, he would tell Mr Shelton to

give her back her job and then she would be at

his mercy to do whatever he asks her to do…

work long hours, on weekends and have no

social live. That would teach her how not to be

disrespectful to him.

He was Jake Bass, money talks, bullshit work.

He smiles to himself

“It means that… I am truly grateful for the

opportunity you have given me and I do hope

that you find capable hands to take over from

where I stopped. Thank you sir, it had been a

privilege to work with you,…I would tender my

resignation within the hour, now if you would

excuse me” she says getting up

Both Mr Shelton and Jake Bass’s jaws drops to

the floor

“But but..Samantha “ Mr Shelton says baffled…

he expected her to beg too, apologize to Mr

Jake Bass, and all would be well. He didn’t want

to lose her, no, she brought life back to his

company, if she leave, it’s as good as going

back to where he started… which was ground

zero..No!

“Damn !! you are a stubborn little mule

Samantha Brookes” Jake says , he shakes his

head rubbing his lips

“I would rather not dignify your comment with a

response MR Jake Bass, Mr Shelton if you

would excuse me”

“Erm..please wait Samantha” he says, he closes

his eyes and then opens it. He had two choices,

let Samantha go and let his company go back to

ruins or call Mr Bass’s bluff, and loose one of

his big sponsors..

With Samantha, he can always get more

sponsors, might not be as rich as Bass but it

would take time, they would find.

So he made his decision “I am sorry Mr Bass,

Miss Samantha, I will not collect your letter, you

are a part of this company and you would

remain so. Mr Bass I thank you for your

continued patronage but if you deem fit to

withdraw from our partnership, we won’t stop

you. sometimes assets are better than wealth”

he says, he might be making the biggest

mistake in life but sometimes, one has to take

the risks.

Wow !!

He should get up, storm out of here and do just

that. He should… so he opens his mouth to tell

him to make all the arrangements with his

accountants.

“Very Well Mr Shelton… I do understand. My

apologies. I do not like your decision but I

believe one should not put one’s anger in front

of delicate matters. I do very well want to

continue our business relationship and I still

want your best team head to handle my charity

event, and if… erm..Miss Samantha is the best

she should handle it, well of course it is up to

her” he says

He doesn’t believe he was doing this… he, Jake

Bass. Someone must have put juju juice in his

tea this morning

Mr Shelton beams with smile, “Oh thank you Mr

Bass. Miss Samantha ?”

She stares at him…

Not bad Mr Bass, at least you have realized one

thing; not everyone would bend to your rules..

Mr Jake Bass schooling commences, JB 101

“if I am to be charge, I would like that I handle

things my way, which means that Mr Bass would

have to try as much as possible not to infringe

on my working rights and that he gives me the

space I need to do an excellent job..” Samantha

says

“You would do whatever I ask you to, and when

She smiles “No Mr Bass, I do whatever I want to

and when, and if I have to do my Job… that is

my call. And if we are finished here sir, I would

leave”

“And the meeting we can have it now?”

Oh no Mr Bass

“11 am’’ she says walking away

Mr Shelton hides a smile, way to go Samntha ,

way to go

Jake Bass is frowning, Mr Shelton looks at him

apologetically “I am sorry for her behavior Mr

Bass, maybe she is on her period, Pms-ing?”

“Oh I doubt that, she just likes seeing me turn

red. Well I have an hour or two before 11 am. I

would take my leave “

“Very well Mr Bass”

*******

“Come in shelly”

“Your 11 am is here Samantha” Shelly says

“Thank you” Samantha nods, but Shelly didn’t

leave

“Shelly?”

“Erm I don’t know what you did or how you did

it but, I just had a new found respect for you

Samantha Brookes..” she says with wonder in

her voice, Samantha smiles

“You have to show them that you are made of

steel too right?”

Shelly returns the smile and leaves, in another

minute she knocks and ushers in Jake Bass

“I believe you will have my time now Miss

Samantha Brookes?”

“Do have a seat Mr Bass, how may I help you?

tell me what sort of charity event you desire and

I would try and bring your desires to

fruition”she says with a very professional and

straight face

He stares at her, seating next to her, for the

first time he really looks at her and he realized

something;

She made his heart skip

And he didn’t like that at all.
