Love and Struggles - Episode 2


Shade cracked her knuckles and sighed

“You better take am easy, girlfriend” A lady sitting adjacent to her said softly
“Thank you Tracy, these things can just kill someone, ehn” She replied
“You ladies should please now… Wait till the short time break” A young man in the same office said feigning seriousness

The department consist of four other staffs apart from Shade whose tasks were to deal with entering data into the company’s server likewise providing those data when the need arise. Out of those five, a young man named Dickson was the only male gender among them.
     After he was transferred from the Customer Support department to the department where Shade works, he at first felt awkward noticing the difference but as time goes on, he got used to it and would simply smile whenever he’s being teased.

“Am sure you meant to say you’re enjoying our conversation, Dickson” Tracy, another staff in the department said without removing her fingers from the keyboard
“You aren’t serious” The young man smiled, stood up and then walk towards a printer machine nearby to fetch the document which he just printed

    Shade was glad to have the duo of them in her department. Ssometimes their drama makes her feel relieved whenever she’s getting burned out and she had even once told the two of them that they would make a fine couple in the future as they seemed to get along. Other members of the department laughed at the remark while the two of them simply looked at each other before making a disapproval nod.

    Shade stared at the papers lying on her table and try to make a frantic effort to finish some of them before short break. Mid-way to one of the document, her phone beeped indicating a new voice message. She ignored the notification and decided to check whatever it is during the break period which she presume would soon be announced.

   Their company maintains a flexible schedule which allows some of the staffs to have a short break after working for some hours. The Co-founder of the company who about four months earlier introduced the idea said “the short break would help to increase productivity by reducing staff’s workload stress”.
    At the board meeting where they are to discuss about the idea, some of the board members politely disagree saying it would have no effect or worse- an adverse effect. The opposition party furthermore stated they see no reason why something like that should exist since the daily working hours are not so that long compared to other companies like them.
      When a vote was finally carried out, the percentage ratio of those who were in support to those who opposed were fifty-four to forty-six percent and this made the company board members to arrive at a decision on giving it a try and see how it goes. Fortunately, the later result was positive.

Thirty minutes after Shade got the beep notification on her phone, a voice from the speaker on the department wall made an announcement for the short break period

“Are you Ladies going to the cafeteria?" Dickson said as he rose up from his seat
Shade nodded a ‘yes’ answer packing up the remaining documents into her desk cabinet
“Same here too” Tracy added while reaching for her handbag

The three then walked together with Dickson leading the way out of the department exit door to where the cafeteria is.

The cafeteria which was based inside the company’s compound was managed by a group of professional caterers who made both local and foreign delicacies. At one corner of the cafeteria is a section called Cold room where there are assorted drinks while on the wall was a plasma screen to thrill customers with entertainment videos of different sorts.

     Dickson was the first to spot a table with four empty seats in the cafeteria in which they then walked up to the seats and sat round the table. Not quite long after they sat down, a female attendant came over and show them a list of available delicacies. After making their choice, the attendant withdrew herself to bring them the orders from over the counter.
Tracy dropped her handbag on the empty seat left and they all began to chitchat about office work.

    Shade suddenly remembered the notification on her phone and brought out her phone to check it before anything else. She hated having unread messages or missed calls for a long time on her phone without finding out what it is. After dialing the USSD Code for voice message, and followed the voice prompt, she then placed her phone's earpiece beside her ear listening with rapt attention as the voice message read

“I got your message this morning, dear
Thanks for the flattering; and to be sincere, hearing your voice makes me feel better too. Please do flash me when you’re on break, there’s something i need to tell you.
Love you more, Shade”

Though the voice message did not mention the recipient but she instantly knew it was Fred and wonder what could have happen as she sensed anxiety in his voice.
   She was about to dial Fred’s number when a call came in

“Good afternoon sir”
“He should come and submit his CV?”
“Oh, thank you so much sir!”
“Of course, i would tell him ASAP”
“I love you Dad”
“Alright sir, bye”

Meanwhile all the time she was making the calls, Dickson and Tracy had strayed off from work topic and were talking about something else, something funny that they both laugh at intervals.
  The female attendant then brought their orders and left almost immediately

“This people never cease to amaze me with their delicacy” Dickson said mid-way into the food
“Yeah, they’re good. But you need to eat mine someday” Tracy replied while holding a spoonful of fried rice
“Oh? Are you telling me you can cook something like this?
“I actually mean something better”
“You seemed to fit in my type of dream woman?”
"Oh, really Mr Dickson? Shade pause her meal and bursting into laugh 
“ don’t tell me you’re saying that because of food?” Tracy smiled feeling flattered
“Of course, it is ladies. You know, so i don’t get to miss this type of delicacy after i closed for work”
“After you closed for work? That’s more than a girlfriend thing; it’s like sort of a wife”
“If that is, then no problem” Dickson said and drank from the bottled water

  Deep down, Dickson really meant his word even though at that moment, the circumstances which led him to say it was consider to be a joke
    Sometimes he wish he could tell her but couldn't figure out what's stopping him; perhaps maybe the fact that they both work together in the same office or maybe because he thought she must have had a long list of boyfriends more suitable than him for her.

After being through with the meal and settling the bill, they all decided to relax for few minutes before going back to office. Shade thought of using the opportunity and dialed Fred’s number while Tracy decided to make some calls too. Dickson simply launch the Beach Buggy video game on his Android phone in the meantime

“Hello Fred” Shade was glad the latter picked it after dialing the second time
“Am sorry, Shade. I dozed off under a tree while relaxing and didn’t realize you’ve been calling me” A tired voice replied from the other end
“By now, I guess you ought to be at the company we both discussed the previous night"
“Yeah, i ought to but something came up”
“What’s that? Was it part of what you mentioned in the message?”
“Yeah. I made some amendments on my CV through the night, left my PC on the studying table and then…”
“And then, what?
“Some petty thief or rather thieves stole the Laptop before dawn”
“Oh, that’s so bad. We’d talk about this tomorrow, okay?”
“I’ll be fine, As a matter of fact, am feeling better now. You don’t have to bother”
"I know you will, i just want to ensure that”
“Alright then”

    Shade was about to end the call when she remembered the reason why she called him in the first place. The thought of what had been happening to Fred lately almost made her forget

“And ehm, Good news!"
"Gist me. What's that?"
"Dad said you can come next tomorrow in his office with your documents on Monday”
“There’s been an available position at his friend’s company you told me about?”
“Yes dear. I will stop over by your place and give you my laptop and modem to prepare another CV"
“Oh, thank you Shade. I really appreciate…”
“Don’t bother to mention. I think the short break is about to be over, will stop over by your place in the evening to talk better. Take care”

    Immediately she ended the call, Tracy asked if all is well in which Shade only told her about the stolen PC but did not mention the part where the PC was the answer to a job for him that very day. She felt the need not to explain in full details what’s going on. Her friends told her everything is going to be well and that he should be thankful, they didn’t part away with more than that.

Dickson checked his wristwatch and  hints them that the break would soon be over and that they should be getting ready. A friend of Dickson who was about leaving the restaurant saw the three and winked at him. They all knew what that meant

“Even if i marry you both, it doesn’t concern them. Right, Ladies?
Shade gave him a quick glance and shook her head
“I wonder when you’ll get serious” Tracy said and smacked him playfully
“For you, am truly serious” Dickson whispered in his heart

George’s Pieces of Me By Tomi Adesina [Honest Review]

After reading George's Pieces of Me[GPOM] written by Tomi Adesina, i decided to do a review on this blog about the Book and not just any review, an honest review.
   But before talking about GPOM, let me share a little bit details about how i got to know of the author and the book.
  Shall we?

How I Got To Know About Tomi Adesina

I was surfing the web one fateful day and stumbled upon a piece about Tomi Adesina and a short story written by her titled “dear future husband”. I don’t know how but something triggers my curiosity and I decided to read the story.
     Before I knew what was happening at that moment, I found myself staring at the dear future husband short story official page and decided to take a read later. I was about to bookmark the page when something caught my attention and that was “Click here to download the Story eBook”.

I gave it no second thought before clicking the button and boom! I had the story on my device in PDF format

**********
When I finally got the chance to read the book from the beginning till end, i couldn’t help but long for more work from the person who wrote the dear future husband story. That was how I got obsessed about her stories and opt for more of her works which are; Fola King, Clandestine, All Fun and Games and Beautiful Stranger [see all of those stories here].
    All those stories got me WOW and when i check out the author out on twitter, I discovered she launched a book titled “George’s Pieces of Me [GPOM]”. At that moment, I said to myself
“Tunde, am not sure how long it will be or how soon but I MUST get a copy of GPOM”
Fortunately, not quite long after i saw the book, Tomi announced on her twitter timeline about GPOM Book Meet up & Signing at Allen Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos.

***********

George’s Pieces of Me Meet up Event

    Here is a shot with the Author below;)


    All I can I say in one word is; the event was great and fun.

I mean to hear the story, efforts, and how it feels to be a writer from someone like me is really soothing.

She also talked about how writing has been a great part of her, the inspiration for coming up with the book, and did I also mentioned that people were able to ask questions either about the author or the book too?

George’s Pieces of Me HONEST Review

Whenever you want to read the book, I would strongly advise you’re not distracted to enjoy the real beauty of the book. Here’s why

   After gotten the book, I couldn’t read it on that day [arrived Ibadan late at night from the event] and the day after.    When I eventually force myself to read the book in a distracting condition, I understood some part and didn’t.

  But the day I got to read the book in a suitable condition, i was able to get the message.

    The book is a collection of deep short stories which you’re going to likely identify some happenings in the book as what you’re currently going through or what you’ve gone through.

 It unravel some things about life’s mystery which includes but not limited to loving someone, losing the one you loved [some temporary, while some forever], gaining them back, and how it feels to live without your loved ones.

For more info about the book & to get it, visit Tomiadesina.com

Love and Struggles [Short Story] - Episode 1

Fred stares away from the laptop in front of him and couldn't help but to allow his eyes wander aimlessly from one object to another in his cozy room. He stopped at the wall-clock and was surprised to find out that the time has struck 2AM
     His mind flashed back to the event that took place earlier in the day which made him to stay awak.

***********************************
EARLIER IN THE DAY
***********************************

The third applicant came out from the interview room with happiness written all over his face. Fred as well as the remaining five applicants were on seats in the waiting room which is just opposite the interview room when the man came out.
     They all knew well enough that the man had also been offered a job deducing that from his appearance. Fred instantly wished he was in the man’s position at that moment and hope for the same outcome too. Then the intercom rang from the secretary desk in the waiting room

“Next Applicant” The secretary said as she dropped the line

Fred stood up from his seat, adjusted his tie and walked in with confidence.

***********************************
FRED"S ROOM
***********************************

“I knew i was rejected because of my CV” Fred muttered to himself sadly as he watched the clock struck past 2AM.

He had spent the past hours downloading samples of professional Curriculum Vitae online and comparing some of them to make adjustment on his CV. Turning his attention back to the laptop in front of him, he review and edited his document for the last time. When he deem it good enough and satisfactory, he presses Ctrl+S on the laptop’s keyboard to save the document before shutting down the PC.
     Feeling very tired, he left the PC on his study table which is just beside the window and dragged himself to bed.

There was this saying that; “The last thing you’ll likely think of before you sleep could either be the reason of your happiness or being gloomy

Fred thought of the house rent which would soon be due likewise some other imminent debt and prayed his next job search turns out to be successful. He heard a loud snore from the neighbor living next door and made sarcasm of it

Maybe if I get a Job, i might be able to do that too but not before” he said and closed his eyes into the dreamland


***********************************
***********************************

He was holding a toothbrush in his left hand and searching for the toothpaste when a knock came on his door.

“Yes, who is that?” Fred asked
“Ehm, Mr. Fred! It’s me Pa James”

He wondered what brought the man to his door so early in the morning. Pa James was the neighbor living next door and at the same time, the man who was snoring at the middle of the night.

“Did they pay you a visit too”? Pa James said behind the door

Fred opened the door and asks whom Pa James was referring to as “they”. The bald headed man replied sadly that he meant Petty thieves and narrate how they had stolen his GOTV decoder. Almost all the neighbors in the building knew about the Decoder before it got stolen as the old man treated it like a valuable property and hardly goes a day without talking about it.

“But how did they enter sir, I mean did they broke the door or what? Fred asked feeling puzzled

“I don’t know ooh but I think it was through the window because…”

Fred mind jolted back to reality when he heard the word “window”. He turned back inside and went directly for his studying table

My Laptop, It’s gone too!



***********************************
***********************************

Shade walked up to the standing mirror and took a momentary look at her makeup materials. She picked up the brown powder case, opened it and applied a fair amount on her face.

“It’s already sixteen minutes before seven. ‘Shey o de nipe de ibise bayi’ [won’t you be late to work]?! A voice called from the dining room
“Mi o nipe shetan ma [I would soon be through ma]” she replied her mom

Folashade was glad their city was not like Lagos where there are high chances one would get stuck in traffic for some time before getting to his/her destination. Even though the time-frame rule of the company where she currently worked is before 7:45AM, she was cocksure she could make it to her workplace in less than 30 minutes.

She then took up her phone from the handbag which lay on top of the bed and dialed a number.  After trying it for the third time and receiving the same response which is "the number wasn’t reachable". She thought of leaving a voicemail

“Morning Love. Tried your number but guess the phone had ran out of battery energy, shey? Ehm, I just wanted to hear your voice before I left home for work. You know, It sorts of give me some kind of motivation.
  Take care..., Love you”

After ending the call, Shade then returns the phone back to inside her handbag, picked the bag and hurries out of the room.

“I thought you’re not going to leave that room” Sade’s mom said

She simply smiled, and walked up to her before pecking her at the forehead

“Where’s daddy?”
“He went to the bathroom and…”
“Please help me tell daddy not to forget about the place we discussed. Goodbye ma!”

 A taxi was passing by when she stepped out of their building. Shade waved the taxi down and told the driver her destination likewise the price she's going to pay. The latter agree and she then hops in to the front seat.
   When the taxi passes in front of Fred’s house, She was surprised to sight some people in small gathering in front of the building. Though she couldn’t see the scene clearly because of the cab in motion but was quick to notice a fat woman tapping the shoulder of a young man.

She knew Fred wouldn’t be among them as he must have gone out at that time of the day for the Job hunt they both discussed yesterday night. She shrugged her shoulder and then draw a mental picture of the documents she has to work on for the day.

“We’re here, Madam” the driver announced

Her mind jolted back to reality

"Oh, don't mind me"

She then paid the driver and came down. Checking her wristwatch, she discovered she still had ten minutes before 7:45AM. Shade smiled and walked in to the company



***********************************
FRED'S RESIDENCE
***********************************

“Mr. Fred, just take am easy ehn”. Mama Junior said as she pats Fred’s shoulder like a mother consoling her son

There were other people whose items were stolen too from the house and it came as a surprise that none of them knew when the incident was going on.

Fred wasn’t shedding tears but his eyes show clear signs of a gloomy person. His mind raced to and fro thinking about lots of things

Was it the CV he painstakingly wrote during midnight?

Was it because of the job a reliable source told him to come and apply for, today which he won’t be able to do so again due to the unavailability of the CV?

Could it be because of the fact that he can’t afford to buy another PC two months to this time?

Or could it because of the imminent debts?

He couldn't find the right answers and felt really bad that the incidence occur to him at a time like this. Fred manage to take momentary glance at the fat woman who was consoling him and decided to take a walk or maybe find someplace to cool his head

“Thank you Mama Junior, I really appreciate it”

“My son, God will provide a better one for you?” The woman said

Fred merely shook his head

“I think I have to go somewhere right now” He stood up and walked inside
