In case you missed the last episode, here it is: How I made it.
Though Bryan seemed to be cool, I could tell that all was not well. I tried to prove to him that there was nothing between me and Hopekins just to make him understand which I thought he did. He seemed not to be in a hurry though it was getting late. “Bryan, I think it’s time to say goodbye and goodnight. Let’s meet tomorrow at the office. Hope I have made it clear to you.”
He did not hesitate. He stood up from where he was seated, shook my hand and wished me a goodnight. For sure I didn’t like all what was happening. It was more of pretence than real. To me, it was like a show. We parted and I was glad that he left in peace.
The night was long. I kept tossing left and right. Tried to cover myself from the cold but no sleep came on my way. “Was he sincere when he said that he was sorry? Why did he seem to be so calm?……” A lot of questions crisscrossed my mind. Yet I didn’t have the right response. I didn’t know when sleep hijacked me as I went exploring the slumber land until I was interrupted by the morning alarm.
It didn’t take long before I arrived at the office. To my surprise, Bryan had not arrived. This was unusual as he always reached office before me. I had a busy schedule and so I went straight to my day’s program.
It was now at 9:30am and Bryan had not arrived at the office. I wondered what could have happened to him. I decided to give myself time as I waited for him before going out for some field work. After half an hour, I picked my bag and some files that I needed for the field work. As I was stepping outside, the office phone rung. With a lot of enthusiasm, I rushed to pick it..”Hello… Good morning.”...to continue.. don’t miss the next episode…if you like it, give it a thumb and share. You can also connect through the email.
