RISEN DEVILS, FALLEN ANGEL ... SEASON
Love is not love, when you so much consider appearance than character. Heed to these words and let's make it together to heaven someday. He concluded.
He together with his family members asked permission to leave.
Abigail pleaded in tears and remorse, but it was too late.
Abigail, if I accept you back now, I don't know what you are going to love. My money or my personality? It is too late to plead. Pastor Asamoah spoke again.
Asamoah, I swear to love you! I swear! Abigail screamed in tears.
First of all Abigail, it is written in the bible that, do not swear. Let your yes be yes, and your no be no.
So you see, you've answered my question wrongly, talk of acting them. He said.
I suggest you start from a humble beginning to prove your change. Just get yourself a farmer and put yourself to test by loving him. If you are able to, you are indeed a changed person and can go ahead to plan your future with him. He advised and walked away.
Abigail through tears got so emaciated.
God, I have sinned against you and I need your forgiveness. She daily prayed.
Days later, she traveled back to the city to go and beg Selorm to accept her back into the company.
Sir, I know I disrespected you, but I am sorry, please forgive me. She pleaded.
Abigail like I said, I don't hold anything against you. The decision you made was your choice and you were entitled to it, but the reality is, someone has occupied your position and the company is full. Selorm responded.
Selorm what about being a cleaner? She sadly asked.
A cleaner? From a clerk to a cleaner? Come on Abigail, don't be desperate. There are lots of companies in this city and I think you can maintain your dignity by walking out of here and writing application letters to any of them. Selorm advised.
Abigail had no option than to go back to the village.
When she got to the main gate, she saw a familiar person on phone.
Hello madam, we seem to have met before. She asked.
No please, we haven't. If we have, it probably might have been here. The person answered and walked away.
Abigail sadly walked away too.
The familiar person walked into Selorm's office.
Good afternoon sir, please who is that lady I met at the gate? She seemed to be coming out from your office. She inquired.
She was a worker here Emefa, but she called to resign and now back to be reinstated. Selorm narrated.
Called to resign? That was disrespectful! She almost screamed.
You are right Emefa. Anyway, she is history and this company can never work with her again. Besides, the place is full. Selorm responded.
That's good. Emefa stated and began walking away.
When she got to the door, she paused. Eerrm sir, have you please had something to eat today? She asked.
Not yet, but I will eat soon. Selorm answered.
I'm sorry to scold you sir, but I've advised you several times not to starve.
Anyway let me get to the restaurant and get you your favorite. She smiley responded and walked away.
Wow, Emefa is so caring. She most times behaves like my mother, and I am so much growing fond of her. Selorm monologued.
I wish Joojo was here to assess her for me, but unfortunately, I don't even have his number to call him. He has never bothered to call me since he left this country. My own brother, have left me to my faith because I wanted the best for him. It is well anyway. He sadly thought with tears running down his face.
In few minutes, Emefa entered the office with a pack of banku and tilapia.
She happily brought out a bowl from the cubicle and served Selorm.
Sir please eat for me and make sure you clear everything. She happily spoke but Selorm was so down.
Sir what is it? Are those tears I'm seeing in your eyes? Emefa questioned.
Sir please talk to me, what's wrong? Have I in anyway offended you? She insisted.
No Emy, I'm just missing my brother. Selorm responded.
What happened to him sir? Is he dead? She asked.
No, he traveled and hasn't called me till date. He got mad at me due to a problem we couldn't resolve. Selorm explained.
Awwww that's bad, I pray he comes back soon to fill that vacuum he left, but in the mean time, I promise to be here for you. Kindly let me know when he calls, so that I can personally plead with him on your behalf. Emefa heartily spoke.
Now let me wipe those tears so you can eat. She stated and took her handkerchief to wipe the tears.
Selorm stared deeply at her face without knowing how to thank her.
Emefa slowly and gently moved her lips towards his and kissed him.
In a second, she pulled back.
I am sorry sir, I didn't mean to do that. I am really sorry. She apologized and hastily walked away.
To be continued.
