cooluc:When I opened the FT tab and saw the thread jumped from page 16-17, I was convinced fiyah has updated only to check it and see Olivervivian quoting a particular post three times just to express her feelings in less than a sentence.
I became very angry and might have used the worst word on her. Thankfully though, I was patient enough to read further and I saw her innocent reply. That alone changed everything.
Olivervivian, please modify those posts and remove most part of them. They are very annoying.

Olivervivian:Under each of the three posts, you will see "modify" alongside "quote", "report", "like", etc. Click "modify" and after the page loads, edit the texts removing all the texts leaving only your own texts or better still, leave a sentence or paragraph that might have made you write what you wrote.

I was still on the swivel chair in my office and I was almost certain I was having the time of my life just sitting back there, swirling left and right while I stared at my supposed responsibilities in form of untended piles of files stacked on the table before me with little or no regret gnawing at my conscience.
It was easy not being regretful because I knew, from the moment I stepped inside the office up to the moment when I picked up a ball pen and started scribbling that I was just a few seconds close to having no responsibility whatsoever in this company.
And the neatly folded resignation letter in my hand somehow attests to that.
Yes, my resignation letter was handwritten because I definitely didn’t feel like switching on some PC while waiting for it to boot before typing when I could just get a neat sheet of paper lying freely on my desk waiting to serve a similar purpose.
I don’t know why I was still sitting down, swirling back and forth, waving the small envelope that housed my letter in the air when I could just stand up and get everything done with.
I have never been this sure of anything so I was cocksure this wasn’t hesitation. I felt I owe my office a few glances before leaving…
This could be my last moment here and the least I could do is give my office a quick glance.
One thing was sure though, it wasn’t a quick glance. I had been sitting here for an hour or half an hour or so and instead of glancing around like I want to inarguably believe, I had been trying to weigh my priorities, my options and my decision, everything which ultimately synopsized into one thing; I have no business here anymore.
I never did.
I may have tried to fit Rhoda’s dad in the vacant slot my dad left when he died and even when he was alive but I should have known better that things don’t work that way. Rhoda’s family isn’t mine and I shouldn’t have gotten myself involved or anything. I have nothing left here for me. My best friend wouldn’t talk to me.
She may never do.
Her brother whom I was almost convinced my heart ache for doesn’t feel the same way and even if he does feel the same way and the best way he could show it is how he has been showing it, then I’d rather keep flying solo.
I rose swiftly with a resolution so strong, I was sure nothing could mess it up. I was outside my office right after tucking a stray lock of hair dangling in my face in place and also moistening my lips. I took a long deep breath as I began my trip towards Peter’s office.
I was in the lobby when something… I mean someone caught my eye and that someone, even though I tried to not believe it, was Rhoda.
She was wearing a nude body-hugging top that melted on her trunk like butter. The top was tucked inside a black Palazzo while her blonde hair was packed into a French twist which left a few strands brushing against neck. I slowed down my pace, with my eye still fixed on her. She was busy staring at a stack of printed paper just right outside David’s office and I could see her nervously reply greetings offered by staffs that walk close to her oblivious of the fact that I was staring at her.
What could possibly make her change her mind to resume?
Or did she just come here to see her creepy Fiancé?
But it doesn’t look like she was here for a visit. She had heaps of papers in her hands like she was on an official assignment coupled with the fact that she was formerly dressed
If at all she actually resumed while Peter is still the acting CEO, I was certain David wasn’t the one who convinced her. He wouldn’t do that.
I was just a few distance away from her and I realized I was torn between trying to talk to her to settle our differences and walking past her to save my face from any embarrassment if at all I talked to her and she ignores me.
At the point when I was going to make a decision, she looked up to see me and the gasp that escaped from her mouth coupled with the fright spread on her face made me realized my presence may have jostled her a bit. The fright was immediately replaced by a scornful stare after which she brushed past me to walk in the direction I was coming from with not so much as a syllable leaving her mouth whilst unconscious of the fact that left a sheet of paper fly off the stack she was holding to drop right at my feet.
‘That was close.’ I mouthed to myself, as I bent to pick up the paper. I glanced briefly at it then folded it as I continued my trip down the hallway to the elevators.
‘What a coincidence! I was just on my way down to your office.’ Peter exclaimed as I entered his office and true to his words, he was at the door and it seemed like he was just about to leave.
‘I guess I saved you a trip then.' I replied, clearing my throat inaudibly as I tried to maintain a professional stance while trying hard to not get wobbly legs or swooned just staring at his face. ‘I am here to have a talk…’
‘Where do you think would be okay for a getaway weekend for just two people? Obviously couples. I was thinking we should stay here in Lagos, we could get a fine suite, something like a penthouse, with a pool and a view of the city… but you might have other… you know… plans…’
‘I am not here for….’ I tried to talk again but he interrupted me as he returned his pacing
‘Or… we could go somewhere far away…. We can catch the next flight to SA… We won’t have to think about work and we could just sleep the days away…’
‘We are not couples and I’m not here to discuss a weekend vacation... or getaway or whatever you called it…’ I almost yelled but again, he cut my statement short.
‘Of course, you are not here for that… it’s my job to plan and let you choose. There is the last option though. It’s Abuja. It’s not as close as Lagos here nor is it as far as SA... Or, what do you think?’ For the first time since I entered his office, he gave me a chance to talk.
‘I think you should read this.’ I held out the envelope containing my resignation letter.
I could see hesitation and doubt in his eyes as they roved to the envelope. I could tell he knew what the envelope housed because he suddenly became quiet.
‘What is that?’ He asked in whispers when he finally found his tongue.
‘Why don’t you read it and find out.’ I answered, my hand still held out.
He took a long pause first then draw his gaze away from my hand to my face and the excitement I saw in his face earlier reappeared even though the zeal had diminished.
‘So which weekend would it be?’ He chipped in again, evading the matter at hand.
‘It is not going to be any weekend!’ I yelled frustratingly. ‘Are you even listening to me?’
‘Of course I am not! I can’t listen to you!’ He yelled back.
‘It is a resignation letter. I won’t be working for you anymore… I won’t have to see you anymore nor would you have to see me. It is the best way for me. For us…’I argued.
‘It isn’t for me… I don’t want you to leave…. I don’t want you to ever leave me. I’d be alone. I want to right my wrong. I need another chance. I am sorry… but I can’t let you go. I love you. I really do and I know I don’t deserve someone like you but that doesn’t mean I would ever give up. ‘ He paused and I could see the emotions literally seeping out of his pores . I almost thought he was going to cry but he continued even though he was avoiding eye contact now.
‘I need you to help build me. I need you Ehi… I am out of convincing words… It may seem like I’m babbling but I need you to trust me on this…
‘No, Peter. I can’t build you. I am not the right person for that job. I don’t even want to get involved with you anymore. It just keeps hurting… I don’t want to hurt anymore… your effort in making things right just makes it much worse than it is already… stop fighting it. Stop trying to make things right for me. I don’t want you to cos we can’t work.’ I could tell my eyes were flooded with tears already but I blinked it back.
This isn’t the time to show weakness of any sort.
I had my mind made up already and nothing was ever going to change that.
‘All I want from you is a recommendation letter to add to my resume and it doesn’t even matter if you will try to deny me that cos I can get it from your Dad… you can make things easy for both of us and just let me have it.’ I paused then added, ‘Please Peter.’
‘Ehi…’ He started. ‘I want to show you something.’ He said, snatching my arm like he owned it and walking me to the door.
‘No…’ I said, wringing my hand off his grip while my heel stuck to the ground. ‘I am not going anywhere until you tell me where. Where exactly are we going?’ I asked, my resolution suddenly faltering.
He rubbed his palm across his face. ‘I’d tell you when we get there.’ He said and tried to hold my hand again.
‘Tell me now.’ I maintained my stand as I folded my hands across my chest.
‘Okay,’ He started and I could see his forehead become instantly sweaty.
‘I am taking you to see my mum.’ He announced in a reduced tone.
My eyes widened at the realization and I couldn’t help swallowing.
‘Your mum?’ I asked in a surprise laden voiced.
I watched him nod his reply.
‘She isn’t dead.’ He paused for inflection before continuing. ‘But she is dying.’
