Start from Episode I

Read the Previous Episode

“Rain, I’m very serious about wanting you to be my mistress. I’ve had very strong feelings for you for such a long time now and I think it is time we discussed your future with me and with Edozie Express,” Chief Edozie’s declaration left Rain transfixed like a deer in headlights. “I just didn’t want to rush things between us since you work for me. But I’ve watched you, and I like the way you comport yourself around the office. I like your sense of maturity and the seriousness you bring to every task you’re assigned since you joined us.”

“But sir…I don’t…I don’t know what to say. This thing you’re saying is such a big surprise to me.”

“It shouldn’t be, Rain. We are both adults. We just had sex.” Chief Edozie stared directly into Rain’s eyes as he spoke. “Don’t tell me you didn’t enjoy it.”

“Sir, you are my boss. What was I supposed to do?”

“Well, the fact that you didn’t stop me says a lot. Rain, I thank you for not pushing me away,” Chief Edozie paused to take in the beauty staring back at him. “You don’t know how long I’ve wanted to do that.”

“Sir, please, please stop,” Rain was moved by guilt to plead with him and to move his hands from her waist when he tried to touch her again. “This doesn’t feel right, sir. I know we just… sir, I know I didn’t stop you, but it doesn’t mean that I wanted anything to happen.”

“Rain, you enjoyed it. You can’t deny that fact. I saw the way your body reacted whenever I wanted to pull out; you pulled me right back in. So please, don’t say what I know you want to say.”

“I’ve been unhappy and under a lot of pressure lately,” Rain sobbed. “I’ve had so many things I’ve been confused about and that made me – ”

“Weak and vulnerable? Common, Rain! We both know that what happened between us, in this room, on that bed, moments ago, was consensual. You didn’t say no and you didn’t try to stop me.”

“Sir, you’re my boss!”

“Who wasn’t dangling any carrots right before we kissed. I didn’t promise to promote you or do anything for you in exchange for sex. It just happened because we are two matured human beings with feelings and we got caught up in the moment.”

“Sir, I didn’t want anything to happen. I came into your office to make a presentation to you about – ”

“I didn’t rape you,” Chief Edozie said quietly. “I didn’t force or cajole you into having sex with me.”

“I’m not saying you raped me sir. You didn’t do any of the things you just said, but…I’m just saying that I was in a bad state, and I wasn’t thinking straight. When you touched me, I…I felt something…but I didn’t want it…I could have stopped you, but I couldn’t say no or push you away because of the respect I have for you.”

“Rain, there’s no need for insinuations. Look here, my dear, I don’t have any regrets about what just happened between us, and I don’t think that you should.” Chief Edozie spoke with the assertiveness and confidence of a man who always got what he wanted.

“Sir – ”

“I will go straight to the point. I like you and I want to take care of you in a way no other man on this earth will. I want to do things no other man can do for you, not just here in the company, but in all ramifications.”

“Sir, I can’t. I can’t do this. I’m just not that kind of girl and I don’t have those kinds of feelings for you.”

“I don’t need you to have any kinds of feeling for me. I just need you to distract me because I’m also going through a lot in my life right now and I think I need the thrill of a new relationship with someone I’m really, really attracted to. And I promise you Rain, I’ll make it worth your while.” 

“Please sir, you’re my boss and it just doesn’t feel right having this conversation with you.”

“I know you will say that. But look, this isn’t America or the United Kingdom, so let’s not turn this into one Hollywood movie or series that it isn’t. There’s no sexual harassment here. I’m not asking you to sleep with me for the fun of it. I like you and want to take care of you. I want you in my orbit. None of us knows what tomorrow holds and I don’t want to push to tomorrow what I can begin today because what if I only have right now.”

“This is hard – ” 

“I want you, Rain. I want us to do this again because I haven’t felt this way in a long time. My heart is beating a different kind of way, like I am born again or something.”

“Sir, I’m in a very serious relationship. In fact, my parents are coming into Yenagoa this week to meet with my fiancé. We are getting married very soon.”

“Did I ask you to marry me? Look, I’m already married, so I’m not looking for a wife. What I want is for you to go out with me for a few months. We can do a year if God permits, but no more and then you can get married to whomever you want. That is the offer I’m putting on the table and I want you to think about it.”

There and then, Rain tried to do as he said. She closed her eyes to think, but the only thing she could image was Chief and the many women like her that had shared that bed same bed with him and it made her feel dirty and used.

“Sir, there’s nothing to think about. This was a mistake. I love David very much and I can’t do anything to hurt him.”

“David? Is it the same guy you came to the salon with that day I gave you my card?”

“Yes sir, David, David Spiff III. He just proposed to me recently, and I agreed to be his wife.”

“It is a good thing you said yes,” Chief Edozie smiled and nodded his head. “Marry him. I would be the last person to say you shouldn’t. But create time and space for me in your life. That is all I ask.”

Rain tried to speak, but ended up breathing heavily.

“So, if I say yes, what would happen?”

“You’d be the luckiest girl in Yenagoa.”

“And if I say no?”

“If you say no, would you still be comfortable working in Edozie Express?”

Chief Edozie watched Rain leave the room. He waited until he was sure she was out of his office and wouldn’t be coming back into the room before reaching for his phone from underneath the pillow. He was too impatient to scroll through his phone, so he instructed Siri to call his Chief Security Officer.

“Good morning boss.”

“Alabo, meet me in the penthouse, now.”

“I’m on my way, sir.”

“In fact, don’t bother to come up. This is urgent and of utmost importance to me. I want you to do something for me.”

“Go ahead with your instructions for me, sir. I am on standby for anything you direct, boss.”

Chief Edozie deactivated the speaker function and held up the phone against his right ear. “CSO, I want eyes on someone. His name is David Spiff, Rain’s boyfriend. I want to know everything about him. Where he works, what he does after work, who his friends are, what church he attends, where he hangs out, if he is on drugs, how much money he has in his bank account – I repeat, I want to know everything about him.”

“Okay sir.”

“I want you to follow him everywhere he goes.  In fact, let me know when he pees and takes a dump. And most importantly, I want to know if he’s fucking any other person in this town or anywhere else that Rain needs to know about.”

“Copy that sir.”
