The Boss The Maid
(written by uche Lawrence)
I can’t believe am kissing richard right now. We kissed so deeply and passionately as if our lives depends on it.
We broke the kiss to catch our breath, I looked into his eyes and I suddenly felt shy.
I ran to my room and sat on the bed. Everything kept playing in my head.
“Christabel, don’t tell me you made him fall in love? ” I asked myself.
My phone rang and saw it was from my dad. I tilted my head.
‘What would make my dad call me? Cause he doesn’t call often ‘
I took the call “Hello dad”
“Hello Christa, how are you doing? ”
“Am good dad and you?”
“Same, I just called to greet you, your mother told me you’re working in your boss’ company as a PA to him”
“Yes dad, that’s true, how’s mom? ”
“She’s good, I will be ending the call now, take care of yourself ”
“okay dad” he hang up, I dropped my phone on the bed and stood up, opened the door. I saw richard coming in the corridor, I quickly closed the door.
‘What’s wrong with you christabel? Why do you feel so shy suddenly? ‘
I walked through the corridor with my hand stuck in my pant pocket.
I kept recalling the kiss I had with christabel, her lips were soft and sweet. I got to her door and smiled.
‘Did she ran cause she was shy or what? ‘ I got to my room, lay on the bed, took my phone and went to the music list and played my favorite song ‘Cheap thrills ‘ then I dropped it on the bed.
I I sent the pictures to sparkle, I know him for his diligent works but I can never forget the day a lady beat him to stupor, though I wasn’t there but I saw him coming from the hospital with bandages all over his head, hands and he was using crutches.
I asked him what happened and he told me everything, I laughed and asked him to take care of himself.
I got a call from sparkle “Have you seen the pictures? ” I asked.
“Yes, I knew her before ” he said.
“Huh? Seriously? Okay, I want you to kidnap her and deal with her mercilessly, but don’t kill her cause I will be the one to kill her myself ” I felt satisfied with my words.
I heard him laugh ‘what’s funny? ‘
“Don’t tell me you want me to kidnap this girl and deal with her right? ”
“Yes, what’s wrong with that? ”
“Do you remember the day a lady got me beaten to stupor cause I wanted to rape her? She’s the one and you want me to kidnap her, you want my parents to mourn me right? Nope I will advise you to leave her or you send another person ” he answered.
“what! OMG! ” I can’t believe it christabel that deal with sparkle that day, this is impossible.
“Bye, and don’t call me if it about this girl, I don’t want to die yet ” he hang up.
Gosh! this is unbelievable!
‘I still won’t give up, I will made sure I have richard back and christabel, she’s dead already.
I began offloading my things and put them in place, I had to stay in a hotel.
I saw a tooth brush in my bag ‘God! this is the toothbrush I used in richard’s house, whatever! ‘ I threw the brush at a corner and lay back on my bed.
I got up from the bed and took my bath and wore my clothe before going out of the room.
I met christabel at the dinning room, she saw me and dropped the glass cups in her two hands and walked faster to the kitchen.
“Are you trying to avoid me? ” I asked, when I got to the kitchen.
The spoon she was holding fell, and she bent down to pick it up.
” I wasn’t avoiding you sir ” she replied, and I sense nervousness in her tone.
“is it because of the kiss we had yesterday? ” she stopped what she was doing in a minute and continued again.
“No sir ” she answered.
“I know it that, do you remember the day you told me “it normal to hug and kiss people ” I mimicked in her voice.
she turned to me leaving what she was doing.
“Not that type of kiss richard ” she covered her mouth.
“Am sorry I called you by your name sir ” she apologized.
“It nothing,it normal to call people by their names ” I smirked.
“Seriously? whatever ” she turned to her cooking.
“What if I kiss you again? ” ‘I didn’t mean to, just teasing her ‘
“Don’t you dare! ” she pointed a spoon at me.
“Come on, just kidding, continue what you were cooking” And she did, I tiptoed to her, cause she was backing me.
I gave her a quick peck on her left cheek and ran out of the kitchen.
“Richard!!!! Am going to cut that lips of yours ” she yelled and I laughed.
it not that I didn’t want to kiss him, of course I do want.
With my observation, I think he has fallen in love and not with anyone but me.
‘Am not sure yet, but I just pray he ask me out, I won’t think twice in accepting ‘ I smiled.
I dished out my food in a plate and then dished richard’s own too and pour a large amount of seasoning in it.
‘you must be wondering why? that’s for stealing a peck without permission’
I took the food to him smiling and he stared at me suspiciously.
“Don’t tell me you’ve done something crazy? ” he asked.
“Nope, just eat ” I kept smiling.
He ate one spoon and widen his eyes, he got up quickly and went to go threw them out.
I fell to the floor and laughing really hard. He walked to me “What was that? ”
He was using a napkin to clean his mouth.
“That was food, am sure you enjoyed the food and that’s for stealing a peck without permission ”
“Then am gonna do that again ” he said smirking.
“Humm… I will go give you another one ” I ran to the kitchen.
‘Thank God, there was still some in the pot’i dished it out and he ate.
‘God! I had to waste this food now! I won’t do that again!
