On the other hand Chris bumped into Nico on his way to his office.
"what's going on you've been greeting everyone since you walked in "Nico teased
"why not? It's such a good day today praise the Lord! "Chris replied
"okay now I'm worried are you okay ?"
"guess who slept at my house last night? "
"who? Minaj? "
"Damn you good "Chris giggled
"you mean Anita slept in your bed last night? "Nico's jaw dropped
"I didn't say that "
"don't tell me you are now hitting it "
"I'm not see you later "Chris laughed
"don't do me like that bro don't leave me hanging. you are not gonna leave me hanging come back here "Nico followed Chris all the way to his office
Meanwhile Anita was busy trying to call Mr X but it didn't go through
"that monster is not picking up "Anita squeezed her phone
"I think you should change and go straight to the office blackmail himthreaten him I don't give a hoot go do something "Sugar replied firmly
"I think I might have a lot to lose if our fair comes out "
"he doesn't know that go try your luck "
Anita changed right there outside in front of their main door she then took a cab to work which made sure she arrived in a jeffy it was around tea break
"girl is it about the other day's bill? "Sandra asked as soon as she saw Anita
"What? What are you on about? "Anita was confused
"I mean you went MIA yesterday today you are late"
"oh no it's nothing like that is Mr X in? "
"unfortunately he travelled but his wife is here "Sandra replied
"perfect "Anita bit her lip
"nah nothing is she in his office? "Anita asked
Anita quickly took the elevator to Mr X's office and of course she met a very familiar face
"Mrs Xibi right? "
"Oh the new PA hy I thought you had travelled with my husband "Mrs Xibi said as she poured coffee into a mug
"oh Mr X prefers travelling alone "Anita replied
"not with her former PA they always left the country together "
"I guess she signed a different contract then "
"So how can I help you? "
"oh I came to see you you see ever since you walked into my office I've been searching for you you remind me so much of my late Aunt "Anita said
"that's interesting is that why you were not at work yesterday? "
"that's complicated "
"complicated? Clearly you have no idea as to whom you are speaking to "Mr Xibi sipped her coffee
"I'm sorry it won't happen again "Anita replied
"You are excused "
Anita walked out the door not knowing what to do next getting close to Mrs Xibi clearly didn't work. She of course bumped into Nico
"hey Nico how are you ?"Anita asked
"I'm good where were you yesterday? "
"long story look my friend and I need a place to crash tonight any hotel suggestions? "
"Oh I don't know a lot about hotels but I'm sure CHRIS! Can help you "Nico smiled
"why did you have to yell out his name? "Anita asked
"did I hear someone calling my name "Chris approached them Anita left and went to her office
"She doesn't have a place to sleep tonight "Nico said
"oh she's always welcome in my crib "Chris replied
"Nah dude I think its your chance to make a move on the chess board "
"The reason why this girl ain't feeling you is because she can see you care start acting like you don't want her anymore "Nico suggested
"That's not a bad idea at all "
Even though Chris didn't know where to begin he found himself dancing to Nico's tune. I mean this was a chance to know how Anita really feels about him to know if he was chasing the wind or the One. You see nothing annoys a girl like not getting any attention from the guy she likes its draining traumatising. Nico came up with alot of suggestions most of them were a bit extreme. In the evening right after work Chris Nico and Mandla decided to hang out at Mandla 's place
"I thought you guys had abandoned me
"Gerara here you know we are always busy "Nico replied
"I'm busy too but I make time for my loved ones "Mandla said
"Euw dude what are we? Your girlfriends or something "Chris replied
"hahaha "Nico and Mandla shared a laugh
"talking about girlfriends where's your chick Chris? "Mandla asked sarcastically as Nico laughed his butt off
"I still don't get the joke "Chris rolled his eyes
"talking about Anita me and Chris have decided to change the game "Nico said
"D... Is she that difficult? "Mandla asked
"Difficult is an understatement she's impossible "Nico replied
"I'm listening "Mandla said
"we decided to make Anita want Chris "Nico said
"I thought we wanted to find out if she's interested in me or not "Chris raised his eyebrow
"I changed my mind as I was saying...by the time I'm done with this girl she'll be begging you to marry her "Nico replied
"Nico the man I trust you cheers "Mandla raised his glass
"don't do anything that's over board Anita is my heart "Chris said
"relax the last thing I need from you is your soft side you can't let her see that "Nico replied
"I'll try "
"What has this girl done to my friend! Geez "Mandla opened his mouth widely
It was around passed 7pm and the girls were still looking for a place to spend the night
"I really don't know what's making you so stubborn let's go to Chris 's house this is not safe "Sugar said
"I don't wanna be his charity case"Anita said
"who cares? We need a place to lay our heads! "Sugar replied
"you know what if you don't want to go I'll go alone! "Sugar made up her mind
"wait you mean you gonna spend the night alone with Chris in his house? "Anita stopped walking
"Okay you win let's go "
Around 9pm they were unlocking Chris's door with the key they left under the flower vase After a few minutes Chris drove in they met him halfway to avoid any unnecessary alarms.
"You girls are still here? "Chris asked as he got off his car
"yeah Chris I hope you don't mind we have no else to go"Sugar said as Anita stood at the door and folded her arms
"No don't worry first thing tomorrow morning I'll book you into a hotel "Chris said
"oh okay "Sugar didn't expect that from him just then Pinky called
"hey Pinky "Chris answered
"Chris hy I've been thinking about you alot lately can we have lunch together tomorrow? "Pinky asked
"What is it that you've been thinking about me Pinky? "Chris raised his voice so Anita could hear him
"Can we talk about it via lunch? Tommorow my treat "
"no woman pays my bill I'll pay ...lunch it is "Chris hung up as Anita turned red she didn't even join Chris and Sugar when they were having dinner
The following morning Anita woke up and took a hot bath as she prepared for work. After 30minutes she went to have breakfast downstairs Chris joined her
"Please go wake your friend it's time she gets a job "Chris said as he poured an orange juice into a glass Anita yelled Sugar 's name about 3times and she came rushing downstairs
"Go take a bath Sugar I need a waitress in my restaurant "
"I didn't know you owned a restaurant "Anita said
"it's that restaurant you once had lunch at remember struggling to pay the bill ? there's alot you don't know about me "Chris replied
"I'm just not interested in knowing anything about you "Anita rolled her eyes
"that makes the two of us "Chris replied
"you heard me "Just then a cab hooted outside
"right on time I called a cab to take you to work I'll be driving with Sugar I wanna introduce her to the restaurant staff "Chris said as he fixed his tie
"what? "Anita couldn't believe her ears she grabbed her purse and walked out when she arrived at work she bumped into Pinky at Sandra 's reception desk
"well... well who do we have here? "Pinky rubbed her hands together
"morning Pinky where's? Sandra "Anita asked
"Oops she's new well we exchange desks on Fridays "Pinky replied
"Oh nice "Anita said just then Chris arrived
"wow Pinky you look more beautiful today "Chris said
"thank you can't wait for our lunch "Pinky blushed as Chris smiled and passed Anita like he didn't recognize her Anita called Sugar immediately when she entered her office
"girl who the hell does Chris think he is treating me like I don't exist? !"Anita said
"I seriously don't know what's wrong with you? Why do you care so much about what this guy thinks about you? "Sugar asked
"well I'm just saying "Anita replied
'look customers are waiting for me chat later bye "Sugar hung up
