Simi Pedro
"Tola!" I call as soon as I get home. "You won't believe what happened at the gym today."
She comes out of the kitchen, an insulator in hand. "What happened?" She asks. From the aroma I perceive, I deduce she is making stew.
"I saw Yanju." I reply.
"This Yanju guy again. What happened this time?" She enters the bedroom and starts packing her overnight bag for her job at the radio station. "He owns the gym that I registered with after trying so hard to avoid him." I reply, still unable to believe it. Karma or kismet? Tola's eyes widen but then her expression changes. "It doesn't mean he would be there every time now. It is not his only job. He owns the law firm." She says and shoves a large book in her bag. "Yeah, I know. That's not the bad part." I continue. "What is the bad part?" She asks. "He owns the perfume store I work at too." I reply.
"Omega? No!" She exclaims, incredulously. "I thought it was for an older person." She wondered out loud. "I thought so too." "But he is so young to be that accomplished now. Haba. He has a law firm, a gym and now Omega. Hmmhmm. I don't believe it one bit. Omega isn't just something someone owns and I hear it is strictly for a family." She shakes her head and pulls out her phone. "How did you figure it out?" "He more or less told me." I say. "Hmmhmm." She replies, noncommittally. "What are you doing?" I ask. "I'm googling him." She says as she types Yanju+ Omega in the google search bar. "Oh my God!" I gasp and cover my mouth trying unsuccessfully to stifle the bouts of giggling trying to come up my throat. I can't believe she is googling him. "What? I'm investigating." She tells me and then exclaims. "What?!" "What?" I ask. She has piqued my curiosity, so, I move closer to her, peer at her phone and gasp as I read…
Yanju ONI-Peters is the surviving son of veteran Attorney, Barrister Olanrewaju ONI-Peters and his wife, the renowned pediatrician, Omokunmi ONI-Peters. Yanju ONI-Peters whose full name is Adeyanju Nathan Oni-Peters is also an attorney like his father and is quite accomplished in the world of business takeovers and constructive fraud in Nigeria. He owns the fast rising law firm, Litigare in Surulere, Lagos, which represents top most businesses and people in Africa. Omega mall located at Kay Adefila road, off Bemil in Lekki, Lagos is owned and completely run by the family. There are other branches in Abuja and Port harcourt. Yanju is engaged to Oyin Bela, the daughter of Politician, Sir Kunle Odubela and his wife, Justice Olga Odubela. Below is a written version of the interview Incarcerator had with him... Tola is still avidly reading but I have lost interest. "Wow. This is unbelievable. He is of the ONI-Peters. Wow. He is a big deal." She is saying truly wowed. Admittedly, I am a bit wowed too but I paste a bored expression on my face. I'm not in the mood to be fussing over him. Some women have standards. I tell Tola I have to sleep early so I can wake up early to make my tiny braids at Orekelewa salon the next day which is Sunday. Then, I carry my purse and retire to the bedroom. I sleep with my make up on, fully dressed, I don't have the zeal to do anything but sleep. {**} It is Monday morning. Tola and I are both preparing for work though I am going for casual. I am wearing my blue forever 21 jean which fits me like a glove and my white, brown and black Versace line-backer polo. Tola has managed to arrange my braids into a complicated and beautiful style that makes me look like a Greek goddess. Tola finally agreed to share her perfume with me after I promised to get her something unbelievable- ha-ha- for her birthday. Not that I don't have mine but somehow it reminds me of Jeff. I'm still a coward in that area. "Simi, if you get back before me, make rice o!" Tola is saying as she applies her ruby woo like classic lipstick and dusts on some Zaron pressed powder. "Alright." I grunt. "Okay, dear! See you in the evening." She blows me a kiss and leaves. Soon, I hear her car leave and everything is silent. I hurry with the rest of my make-up and soon I am on my way to work too. I'm excited that I don't get left at home like some housewife anymore. Soon, I will be totally -both financially and emotionally- independent and move back to my house. I feel I'm in a better place than I was few weeks ago. I'm getting my life together. Everything is going well for me except the slight ish with Yanju. I don't care about that though. From what I gathered from Chidinma, the other sales clerk, he rarely comes around. It is expected of course since he owns a law firm. That should be more important to him. Besides, Mrs. Bolaji is doing a good enough job. Nothing can weigh me down but obviously, I can weigh something down cause I get a flat. "Shit!" Not today. It takes about an hour to get someone to fix it. I can't leave my car because it is illegally parked and I don't want Ambode's goons to deflate the remaining tires. Then, it takes another thirty minutes to get the tire fixed. I can't leave my car with the guy because I don't know him. I am terribly late when I get to the mall and I am already thinking of how to appease Mrs. Bolaji. I park my car and walk towards the store. I see Yanju at the front as I enter. He is on the phone. He gives me a nod, a curt smile passing over his face before he refocuses on his conversation, his voice sharp as he speaks into the phone. I watch his hand come up to the wall and press, the lean of his body against the glass stretching his suit tight across broad shoulders and tight ass, the drop of his head a masculine, sexual gesture. I watch him and feel a pull of longing. Seriously, engaged men shouldn't be this hot. Even if they would be, we should be warned. They should have engaged signs like toilets. Taken. Not taken. So that we single ladies that are not interested in the committed ones can stay away before they get our hearts beating an unnecessary staccato. "Simi! Mrs. Bolaji is angry. She is in her office." Chidinma says as she reaches me, wrenching me out of my reverie. She follows my gaze. "He is hot. Isn't he?" I don't reply. Instead, I walk towards Mrs. Bolaji's office. It is tucked away at the back of the store. It is where she interviewed me few weeks ago. I am still undecided. I know I'm going to tell her what actually happened but it is stressing me out just thinking of how I disappointed her with my tardiness. I stand in front of her door and think for a moment. Just then, her door opens and she comes out. She raises her eyebrow at my upraised fist which I was about to knock with. I look at it and drop it. "I'm so-" I start to apologize but she cuts me off. "We will discuss it later after the boss has left." She throws at me from the corner of her mouth and walks past me to Yanju up front. I sigh as I hear her greet Yanju. "Good morning, sir." "Hey, Mrs. Bolaji. I told you to stop referring to me that way." He says as he shakes her hand. "Anyways, I'm unhappy with the sales in this store for the past few months." He was saying as they pass by me to her office. Soon, I can hear them no more. I sigh again. It's too early to be having work troubles, Simi. About thirty minutes later, Mrs. Bolaji walks out of her office without Yanju. "I'm sorry. I had a flat, ma." I say, really trying to look sorry. "After I made you look so good in front of the boss. He called me on Saturday and I told him about this exceptional person I just hired. He came to assess you himself but you just disappointed us. You were almost an hour late!" "I'm sorry, ma." "He wants to see you." She nods towards her office as she cuts me off. I walk stiffly towards the office. For the second time today, I'm lurking around her office. OK, let’s get it over with. I approach the door, trying to ignore the fact that my heart is suddenly galloping with nerves. I take a deep breath, raise my hand, and knock gently. A few minutes later, I hear his deep voice bidding me in. He is on the phone again. He is listening to whoever is on the line and watching me, eyes speculative, as I stand in the middle of the huge room wondering what to do with myself, feeling extraordinarily self-conscious and out of place. I stand there for almost fifteen minutes before he disconnects and faces me. "Simi, are you taking this job lightly?" He asks. What kind of question is this? "No-ooo." I stammer out. Suddenly, he is making me nervous. He is no more Yanju but the boss. "Sit." He says, nodding towards the chair in front of him. I take my seat. "I'm sorry. I had a flat tire." I apologize and explain. "Okay. Don't let this repeat itself. Sales are pretty low here. I'm putting everyone on a tight leash, even the manager, so I'm sure she would be touchy. I don't want you to be a target." He says. "It won't repeat itself again." I promise and he smiles tenderly at me in return. Blood is pulsating around my head. My legs are trembling under the table. What is wrong with me? "Good." He packs some papers from the desk, shoves them into his Salvatore ferragamo workbag and leaves the store. I can't deal with these emotions.

Hi @Bibs56fan, will you still be updating here?

I can't download okadabooks right now. There's no more space on my phone for another application. Although I have bambooks, but I've searched it and it's not there.

Yanju Peters
It is Monday morning and I'm at my perfume store waiting for Simi even though I'm pretending to wait for Mrs. Bolaji. Simi has made me cheesy. I bring out my phone to dial Mr. Mark's phone number. He promised to connect me with an African brewery company and I want to know how it is going. Simi enters as Mr. Mark is telling me that he has come through for me. That a representative from their office is coming to see me soon at my office. I smile at Simi as she spots me and I continue with my conversation. I thank Mr. Mark but he waves me off and thanks me instead for saving his company and not collecting a dime from him. I glance at where Simi was but she is no longer there. I promise to get back to Mr. Mark whatever comes out of the meeting and he wishes me good luck. Mrs. Bolaji comes over and greet and I go straight to the point. My eyes dart around the store searching for Simi. Just a glimpse but I don't see her. I smell her instead as I pass the back of the store towards Mrs. Bolaji's office. When we get to the office, Mrs. Bolaji explains to me about the situation of the sales and what she has been doing to rescue it. She tells me the new hire- Simi- has been doing well. I'm not surprised, not with the way she smells. I ask about other sales clerks and she tells me they are all trying their best. We go through some sales and we exchange some business ideas. We end on a better note and I tell her to send Simi in. I pick my phone again to call Imole and my new PA, Suzie. I tell them we are expecting someone and tell them to prepare. Simi knocks and I tell her to come into the office. I watch her as I listen to Imole query me about my whereabouts. I tell him I'm monitoring my other businesses like he advised and disconnect.
"Simi, are you taking this job lightly?" I ask as soon as I disconnect.
"No-ooo." She stammers out. I think she is nervous. Personally, I'm not really thinking about her tardiness. I'm thinking about how to get her to agree to go on a date with me but she has made it hard for me because she has boss-zoned me. This time, right here and now, if I ask her, it would be awkward so I make a note to come back in the evening when they are about to close for the day. I give her some advice or something and leave.
{**}
I love my profession. I love spotting the loophole in a contract. I love the thrill of negotiation and arguing my case. I love making the sharpest point in the room. I love the adrenaline rush of closing a deal. I’m only fulfilled when I have convinced people. I have spent hours doing just that with the African brewery company Mr. Mark introduced me to. We spent hours negotiating and now, it’s up to us, the lawyers, to work out what they said and what they actually meant- because really, they are not the same thing- and put it all into a draft contract in time for more negotiations. I love this. I instruct my new PA, Suzie to sort some folders out and she leaves with the rest. When it is 5pm, I pack my stuff and leave for Lekki. I thought she was beautiful in a dress but I can't handle the feelings polo and jeans evoke in me. I'm in deep trouble. I have never ever felt this way for any woman not even Oyin but she hasn't given me a chance to start a proper conversation. I'm just going to grab it. I speed down the highway from Surulere hoping that I will make it on time before their closing hours. By June, I'm going to take her out on a proper date today. As I get to the gate, I glance at my watch and see that it is almost 7pm. She should be leaving the store around now. I park my car in a strategic point and wait for her. I see her as soon as she steps out. My heart starts beating like high school all over again. I wait for her to get close enough and call out to her. "Simi!" She turns towards me, eyes widening in recognition. I wave her over. "Hi." She says as she reaches me. "How are you?" I ask. "I'm good." She replies and smiles. I stare at her smile for a while and say after a beat. "Do you want to go somewhere? Maybe a nice place? Or something. I don’t know..." I trail off tactfully. I swear this is high school all over. "Oh, I'm sorry. I'm tired. Besides, I can't leave my car here." She points in the direction of her car. "I will have someone drop it off for you." I'm not taking no for an answer. "I have to drop Chidinma off at her junction. She asked me." She persists. "I will have the person do that too." "I'm really tired, Yanju." "You are going to have fun." I state. I feel the employer-employee relationship melt away. "Oh alright. I don't want to stay out late though." "Sweet!" I open the door of my Toyota RAV 4 2015 for her and she climbs in. I call Tobi, my driver as she calls Chidinma to update her. "Where are we going?" She asks. "I got you, sweets. Don't worry." I say to her as I rev the engine. I'm glad I didn't take no for an answer.
