CHAPTER TWO “How do I  look?  ”  Amarachi  asked  Ini,  posing  in  front  of  a  mirror. “You  look sweet  hun,  you  don’t  even  need  to talk  too  much,  seeing  you  alone  would make the manager give  you  the  job.” “Hahahaha,  come  on  stop  flattering  me” “I’m  saying  the  truth  babe,  you  can’t  be  denied  the  job” “I  hope  so” “Please  let’s  go now,  so  we  can  beat  the  traffic,  you  know” Both  girls  laughed  as they  left the house  and  got  into Ini’s  Honda  car. Amarachi  looked  indescribably  beautiful  in  her  dark  blue  trouser  suits;  she  had  a pretty  round  face  and  a  fair complexion,  one  that  would  make  guys always take  a second  and  long  look at  her.  When  she  smiled,  she  revealed  a  nice  set  of  tooth  and dimples  on  her  cheeks.  She  had  a  blonde  like  hair which  made  people  conclude  that she  narrowly  escaped  being  an  Albino.  Her  beauty  could  be  likened  to that  of  the Nollywood  actress,  Omotola  Jolade. Ini  was  also  very  pretty,  fairly dark  in  complexion  with  long  and  very  dark  hair.  She had  an elegant  body  shape  and  figure  six  that  made people  refer to as a  model. Her smile  and  composure  reminds one  of  a  Nollywood  Actress,  Genevieve  Nnaji. They  got  to Videx International  Limited  just  some  minutes before  eight  o’clock. They parted  at  the  car park  just  after  Ini  wished  her  friend  success in  the  Job  interview. Amarachi  found  her  way to  the  reception  in  the  account  department,  she  met  two other people  who had  come  for the  interview and  sat  close  to them,  waiting  for her name  to be  called. The  two  other applicants  were  called  in  before  her,  after  about  forty  five  minutes, she  was  called  on.  By  that  time,  there  was  already  four other  applicants  who waited also  at  the  reception.

 “Good  morning  sir”  she  greeted  as she  entered  the  office. “Good  morning,  Miss  Kolawuyi  Amarachi  Toyin,  you  can  have  your  seat”  The manager replied  looking  up,  ”  You  are  here  for the  interview,  are  you  sure  you  know what  this job  is about  ?” Contrary  to her  expectation,  the  manager  was  a  young  man  in his late  twenties.  He looked  serious and  business minded,  his looks  didn’t  bother her,  she  was  well prepared. After some  minutes  of  questions  and  answers,  the  manager,  Dennis Michaels  paused for some  minutes and  spoke  with  a  smile ” Alright,  Miss Kolawole,  we  would  review your  credentials and  get  back  to you,  you  can  leave  now” He  watched  as she  left his office,  she  was  definitely  the  most  intelligent  applicant  he had  interviewed  in  his few years  as a  Manager,  she  would  get  the  job,  he  was  sure  of this. ………………………………………………………………… Kelvin  drove  home  excited  in his New Toyota  Camry Official Car,  He  had  just  been promoted  to the  post  of  the  Public  relations  manager in  the  company  where  he worked  and  had been given  a  car alongside  with  other benefits.  He  worked  for  a multinational  company,  Devi.   Devi  was  known  for its  several  top  quality  products,  her  employees  were  always proud  to display  their  badges and  speak  about  the  company  to others.  Kelvin  joined the  company  not more  than  four years  ago and  had  been  promoted  four times already  due  to his hard  work  and  intelligence  and  some  other factors  which  he wasn’t  aware  of. He  had  become  an  object  of  envy for    employees who  he  met  in  the company. He  drove  into the  compound  and  used  the  car horn  to attract  his flatmates who  he knew  would  have  returned  from  their  places  of  work.  Bode  was  the  first  to come  out, his face  clearly  showed  surprise  at  the  sight  of  the  car.  As  Bode  examined  the  car, Frank  walked  outside  too  to check  what  the  disturbance  was. Kelvin  broke  the  news to  them,  “Hey  guys,  I’ve  just  been  promoted,  my  salary  has been  tripled  and  this is my  new  ride”.
