Episode 75

Steven sat in his office, going through some documents. He had been so busy that he didn't go for lunch when it was lunch break. A knock suddenly sounded on his door.

"come in" he said, without taking his gaze off the documents.

The door opened and Ella walked in holding a file.

"sir, these are the documents you asked me to work on." Ella said and stretched the file to Steven.

Steven looked up from his desk.

"so fast?" he asked, surprised.

"yes sir. I prepared it during the lunch break. I didn't go out for lunch" Ella responded.

"I see" Steven said and collected the file.

"sir, I will like to ask for permission to go and get something to eat, since I didn't go out for lunch." Ella said.

"okay, permission granted" Steven responded.

Ella turned and left his office, while Steven fixed his gaze back on the documents he was working on.

A knock sounded on his door 30 minutes later.

"come in" he said, with his gaze still fixed on the documents.

The door opened and Ella walked in, carrying a takeaway. She walked to meet Steven and dropped the takeaway on his desk. Steven looked up and saw the takeaway on his desk.

"what's this?" he asked.

"I realized you didn't go out for lunch, so I decided to get you lunch when I went to get mine" Ella responded.

"and who told you to get me lunch. If I want to have lunch, I know where to get it. Now pick up this rubbish from my desk." Steven said, rudely.

Ella stared at him in shock. She never expected him to act that way. She was expecting at least a thank you from him, and not the rude response she got from him.

"are you deaf or something. I said you should pick up this rubbish from my desk" Steven repeated.

"I'm sorry sir" Ella responded and immediately picked up the takeaway from his desk.

She turned immediately and walked to the door.

"come back here" Steven ordered.

She stopped and turned to face him.

"let this not repeat itself. Never in your life should you repeat such a thing." Steven warned.

"yes sir" Ella responded.

"that's how they are. They will mask their true attitude and act nice only for you to let guard down. Once you let guard down, they will strike." Steven muttered under his breath.

Ella didn't respond. She only lowered her head in embarrassment. She suddenly wished she didn't get him the lunch.

"what are you still doing here? Will you go and continue with your work." Steven barked.

"sorry sir" Ella apologized and immediately left his office in embarrassment.

Steven hissed and continued with what he was doing.

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

It was already 8:pm. Jewel was seen lying on his bed. He was staring blankly into air. He suddenly sat up.

"I need to inform grandpa now" he said.

He stood up from his bed and left his room. He walked towards his grandpa room and knocked when he got to the door. He opened the door and entered, without waiting for response. His grandpa was seen lying on his bed when Jewel walked in. Jewel walked to sit beside him on the bed.

"grandpa, are you asleep?" Jewel asked.

"no, is there a problem?" his grandpa asked.

"There's something I want to tell you" Jewel responded.

"what is it?" his grandpa asked and sat up.

"grandpa, there's someone I will like to introduce to you tomorrow" Jewel said.

"why tomorrow? tomorrow will be a very busy day for us. Infact, we are both going out tomorrow. I will like to introduce you to someone tomorrow, and it's very important. So tomorrow won't be possible for you to introduce anyone to me" his grandpa responded.

"okay grandpa. A day after tomorrow then" Jewel said.

"that will be better" his grandpa responded.

"I will return to my room then." Jewel said.

"okay, but just have it at the back of your mind that we are going out tomorrow. I want to introduce you to someone." his grandpa said.

"okay grandpa" Jewel responded.

He stood up and left his grandpa's room, while his grandpa lay back on his bed.

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

It was a new day. Jewel sat in the sitting room, waiting for his grandpa to come out from his room, so that they could start going to wherever he was taking him to. He had dressed up and was ready to go. He made himself believed his grandpa was taking him to see some shareholders of the company. He sat alone in the sitting room, staring into air. The sitting room door suddenly opened and Steven walked in. He walked straight to meet Jewel and shook hands with with.

"what are you doing here?" Jewel asked, surprised, because he never remembered inviting him to the house.

"your grandpa sent for me. He told me to come and accompany you guys to somewhere" Steven responded and sat on the sofa.

"Are you also going with us?" Jewel asked.

"yes" Steven responded.
"where are we actually going to?"

"I don't know. Maybe he wants to introduce me to some members of the board as the vice president of the company." Jewel responded.

"yes, that should be the case. That's why he invited me also" Steven said.

"yes, that's it. He hasn't introduced me to the board yet, and he thought it's the right time now" Jewel said.

His grandpa emerged from his room, while they were still having their conversation.

"good morning sir" Steven greeted and stood up immediately he saw Jewel's grandpa.

"good morning Steven. How are you?"

"I'm fine sir" steven responded.

"and your father?" Jewel's grandpa asked.

"he is fine sir" Steven responded.

"that's good to hear" Jewel's grandpa said.

"thank you sir" Steven responded.

"I can see you guys are ready" Jewel's grandpa said.

"yes sir" Jewel and Steven chorused.

"okay then, let's start leaving" Jewel's grandpa said.

Jewel stood up and they all left the sitting room.

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

A car pulled to a stop in front of a gigantic black gate. The car honked and the gateman opened the gate. The car drove into the wide and beautiful compound and parked at the parking lot. Jewel, his grandpa and Steven alighted from the car. They stared at the magnificent building before them. The gateman went to meet Jewel's grandpa and prostrated before him.

"welcome sir" the gateman said.

"thank you. Is your boss around?" Jewel's grandpa asked.

"yes sir. He is waiting for you inside" the gateman responded.

"okay, we will go inside them" Jewel's grandpa said.

They turned and walked towards the entrance of the building. They entered the building and walked into a large and very beautiful sitting room. A man and his wife were already sitting in the sitting room when they walked in.

The man and his wife stood up immediately they saw them.

"Chairman Edward, you are here already" the man said to Jewel's grandpa.

"yes, CEO Jude. We are here" Jewel's grandpa responded.

"welcome Chairman Edward. Please have a sit" CEO Jude said.

"thank you" Chairman Edward responded and sat comfortably on the sofa.

Jewel and Steven also sat down.

"welcome to our home, Chairman Edward" CEO Jude's wife said.

"thank you, Mrs Jude" Chairman Edward responded.

CEO Jude turned to face Mrs Jude.

"what are you waiting for? Go and call our daughter in her room. Tell her that our visitors are here." CEO Jude said.

"okay, let me go and call her immediately." Mrs Jude responded.

She turned and left the sitting room immediately to call her daughter.

"so Chairman Edward, which of this handsome young men is your grandson?" CEO Jude asked.

"this is my grandson. The grandson I'm very proud of" Chairman Edward responded and patted Jewel's shoulder.
"his name is Jewel"

"what a handsome young man. You are welcome to our home, Vice President Edward" CEO Jude said and stretched hand for a handshake.

"thank you" Jewel responded and shook hands with him.

Mrs Jude walked back into the sitting room, without bringing her daughter along. She walked to meet her husband.

"she will be here in a minute" she said.

"okay" CEO Jude responded.

Steven's phone suddenly started ringing. He brought it out from his pocket and stared at the screen.

"excuse me" he said and excused himself immediately.

He left the sitting room and walked to a secluded place to answer his call. After speaking to whoever that call him, he turned to go back into the sitting room, but bumped into Lucy who was also about entering the sitting room.

"sorry" Steven apologized.

Lucy didn't respond. She only glared at him. Steven stared at her confused, not sure why she was glaring at him. After staring silently at each other for a while, Lucy spoke.

"so you are the guy" she said.

"which guy?" Steven asked, confused.

"how can you agree to marry someone you have never met or seen before. Why can't you choose your own wife yourself? So in the whole world, you didn't see any lady to get married to, that you have to allow your parent to choose a wife for you. How can you agree to marry someone you don't love. Isn't that very stupid of you. How will you find happiness in your marriage when you don't love the person you got married to. You much be very silly for agreeing to such decision" Lucy poured out her frustration on Steven.

Steven stared at her, confused. He couldn't understand a thing from what she was saying. For a moment, he thought that the lady standing in his front was insane. He stared at her for a while, then immediately walked into the sitting room, without replying her. Lucy sighed in frustration and walked into the sitting room also. She paused halfway when she saw Jewel in the sitting room.

"Jewel!" she exclaimed.

"Lucy!" Jewel called, surprised, and immediately stood up.

"what are you doing here?" Lucy asked.

"I came here with my grandpa" Jewel responded.

"Is Chairman Edward your grandpa?" Lucy asked, surprised.

"yes" Jewel responded.

Lucy's face curved in a smile when she heard that.

"you guys know each other?" chairman Edward asked, surprised.

"yes grandpa. Lucy was my course mate back then at the university." Jewel responded.

"that makes everything easy then." Chairman Edward said.
"Jewel, you and Lucy will be getting married very soon"

Jewel froze when he heard that.

Episode 76

Jewel froze when he heard that. He couldn't believe what he just heard. That was the biggest shock of his life. He stared from his grandpa to Lucy's father, back to his grandpa, hoping to hear that it was just a joke. He was dumbfounded. His grandpa statement had suddenly made him to lose his voice. He didn't see that coming. He stared at his grandpa in shock.

"since you guys already know each other, so let's sit down and discuss the marriage arrangement" Chairman Edward continued.

"grandpa!" Jewel exclaimed, suddenly regaining his voice.
"what's the meaning of this?"

"what's the meaning of what?" Chairman Edward asked.

"what marriage are you talking about?" Jewel asked.

"your marriage with Lucy" Chairman Edward responded.

"I can't believe this." Jewel said in disbelief.
"So you have already arranged a marriage for me without informing me"

"I'm doing it for you to have a better future. This is a business decision. One day you will have to run the company yourself. I'm only trying to secure your future." Chairman Edward responded.

"I'm sorry grandpa. I can't be part of this. I'm leaving this place now" Jewel said and walked angrily to the door.

"Jewel come back here. Jewel come back here I say" Chairman Edward ordered.

His order fell on deaf ears, because Jewel didn't turned back until he left the sitting room.

Chairman Edward turned to face CEO Jude once Jewel left.

"I apologize for what he just did. He is just acting that way because I didn't inform him before now. I promise you that he will come back to apologize. I'm 100% certain that the marriage will take place. Nothing will stop the marriage." Chairman Edward said.

"I know it will take place. Children of nowadays, that's how they behave. That was the same way my daughter reacted when I informed her about the marriage. But she has accepted it now." CEO Jude responded.

"his father too was like that. He rejected the woman I chose for him and married someone else. I wasn't too strict with his father, that was why he could go against my decision, but this time around, I will be extremely strict with Jewel that he will have no other option than to accept your daughter. So, I'm telling you once more that this marriage is 100% certain." Chairman Edward said.

"I'm certain about that too" CEO Jude responded.

"Since this meeting won't hold today, we will have to arrange another one." Chairman Edward said.

"yes, that's what we will do" CEO Jude responded.

"I will take my leave now. I need to go and talk some senses into my grandson's head." Chairman Edward said.

"okay, chairman Edward" CEO Jude responded.

Chairman Edward turned to face Steven.

"Steven, let's start going back home" he said.

"okay sir" Steven responded.

Chairman Edward shook hands with CEO Jude and left with Steven.

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

Chairman Edward opened the door to his sitting room and stormed in. Steven followed behind him. He walked angrily to Jewel room. He pushed the door open and saw Jewel lying on his bed. He walked angrily to meet him. Steven followed behind him also. Jewel sat up immediately he saw them.

"what was the meaning of what you did back then?" Chairman Edward asked.

"grandpa, I'm sorry. I can't agree to what you want me to do." Jewel said.

"Didn't I tell you it's a business decision. Your marriage to her will improve our business outlook. We are going to merge one of our company in U.S with theirs" Chairman Edward said.

"grandpa, I can't sacrifice my happiness just to improve the company outlook." Jewel responded.

"what happiness are you talking about? I thought you and Lucy know each other already. So what other happiness are you talking about?" Chairman Edward asked.

"I already know Lucy doesn't mean I'm in love with her." Jewel responded.

"that shouldn't be a problem. You will learn to love her when you get married to her" Chairman Edward said.

"I'm sorry grandpa. I can't love her" Jewel responded.

"why?" Chairman Edward asked.

"because I'm in love with someone else" Jewel responded.

"who?" Chairman Edward asked, with a stern look.

Jewel suddenly wish he didn't say that. He knew his grandpa would make life difficult for Angel if he knew she is the one. He wouldn't want his grandpa to harm her. He wouldn't like to get her involved in it.

"who are you in love with?" Chairman Edward asked angrily when Jewel didn't respond.

"I'm sorry grandpa. I can't tell you that." Jewel responded.

"so, it is because of one stupid lady, that is why you turned down the marriage arrangement. Your father did same, but this time, I promise you that such will never repeat itself. Your marriage to Lucy is a must. Let Just watch and see" Chairman Edward said and stormed out of the room.

Jewel sighed in frustration when he left. Steven who had been staring silently all the while, walked to sit beside Jewel on his bed.

"I didn't see that coming" Steven said.

"neither did I. I thought he wanted to introduce me to some members of the board, not knowing that he has other plans" Jewel responded.

"so, what are you going to do now?" Steven asked.

"I don't know. All I know is that I won't agree to what he wants." Jewel responded.

"it's going to be tough o. I know your grandpa very well. He never goes back on his words" Steven said.

"no matter how tough it get. I will never succumb to what he wants" Jewel responded.

"are you going to tell Angel about this?" Steven asked.

"I have promised never to keep a secret from her, but how am I suppose to tell her that my grandpa she's waiting to meet is planning a marriage for me with someone else" Jewel responded.

Jewel's phone started ringing immediately he said that. He brought it out from his pocket and realized that the call was from Angel.

"she's even the one calling" he said to Steven.

He took a deep breath and picked the call.

"hey baby" he said, trying to look calm.

"my Jewel, how are you?" Angel asked.

"I'm fine, and you?" Jewel asked.

"I'm fine too." Angel responded.

"that's good to know" Jewel said.

"You haven't called me since you left me house. You didn't even tell me anything about your grandpa. How is he?" Angel asked.

"he is fine" Jewel responded.

"so, when will I get to meet him?" Angel asked.

Jewel paused for a while, before responding.

"I will introduce you to him very soon" Jewel responded.

"okay, my Jewel" Angel said.

"I will talk to you later. I have something I need to attend to" Jewel said.

"okay, talk to you later" Angel responded.

"okay" Jewel said and ended the call.

He stared sadly at his phone screen. He hated the fact that he couldn't be truthful to her.

Just immediately Jewel finished speaking with Angel on phone, Steven's phone started ringing. He brought it out and realized that the call was from Chairman Edward.

"your grandpa" Steven said to Jewel before picking the call.

"hello sir" he said.

"meet me in my room right now" Chairman Edward said.

"okay sir" Steven responded and ended the call.

"what did he say?" Jewel asked immediately.

"he said I should meet him in his room" Steven responded.

"please Steven, don't mention anything about Angel to him. He shouldn't know anything about her for now. If he knows who she is, he will make life difficult for her. I need to protect Angel" Jewel said.

"okay, I won't" Steven responded.

He stood up from the bed and left Jewel's room. He walked to Chairman Edward's door and knocked.

"come in" he heard from within.

He opened the door and entered to see Chairman Edward sitting on his bed.

"sir, you called me" Steven said.

Chairman Edward fixed an angry gaze on Steven.

"Steven, you know I brought you into the company so that you can keep an eye on my grandson. I want to believe you have been doing that. So, I will ask you this question just once. And I need a direct answer. If you don't give me an answer to my question, just know that it will cost you your position in the company" Chairman Edward said.

His words sent shiver down Steven spine. He knew Chairman Edward never goes back on his words.

"so tell me, who is Jewel in love with? what is her name and what does she do for a living?" Chairman Edward asked, with a stern look.

Steven stared remorsefully into air. He silently asked for Jewel's forgiveness. His job was at stake and he wouldn't sacrifice it for anything.

"I'm waiting" Chairman Edward said, when Steven didn't respond.

"sir, her name is miss Angel Owen. She works for the company, but is currently on a compulsory leave." Steven responded.

"wonderful, she even works for my company." Chairman Edward said.
"you know where she lives right"

"yes sir" Steven responded.

"good. that will be all for now. you may leave." Chairman Edward said.

"okay sir" Steven responded.

Steven left the room immediately while Chairman Edward lay on his bed.

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

Angel sat in her sitting room, watching a programme on t.v. The programme seemed very interesting to her, because all her attention was focused on the t.v. A knock suddenly sounded on her door.

"Jewel" she called and immediately turned her direction to the door.

She stood up immediately and rushed to the door to open the door for Jewel, with smiles on her face. The smile on her face disappeared when she opened the door and saw Chairman Edward standing at the door.
