“I told you to come to the crockery or to my office?” He asked rudely.
“Look here Brian, you have always had a grudge against me, I get it; but I am not going to give you the honours of firing me. I will hand in my resignation letter to the HR tomorrow; I hope you are happy now!” I replied and grabbed my bag.
I walked past Brian and walked out of the room. I was so angry that I did not reason that it was unsafe walking home alone.
I signed out at the gate and walked out of the premises. My house was about half a kilometer away hence I decided to walk.
I had already covered a hundred metres away from the Resort when two men appeared in front of me dressed in black.
One of them was holding a gun and the other one was holding a knife. The one with a knife stood in front of me and tried to snatch my backpack.
I held it tight then grabbed his hand; the other guy with a gun then pointed it to my head.
“Let go off the bag or I shoot you in the head.” The guy said.
I didn’t have much of a choice, I let go my backpack.
In the bag, there was no any treasury; only my waiter’s uniform and my big five.
After finding nothing worth in my bag, the guy with a knife tore it apart and pounced on me. They started raining blows on me; I was defenseless.
Before I passed out, I saw some headlights approaching. That was when the blows stopped landing on me and I heard the two run away.
Hours later, I woke up in the hospital; my body covered in bandages.
My whole body was in pain; I could barely move.
I slowly opened my eyes and saw a familiar face. There was a lady seated on my right hand side; she looked familiar.
“Thank goodness you are awake, I was worried.” The lady said as she got up from the seat she was seated.
“Are you not the lady from the Resort?” I asked after I recalled seeing her seated beside Jackie.
“Yes, I am; my name is Bianca.” The lady replied.
“What are you doing here? You guys are the reason I am on this bed!” I said rudely.
“Haman, I was not contended with what Jackie did. After she asked for you to be fired, I saw you walk out of the Resort all alone and I got concerned. I excused myself pretending to go to the washrooms and went to my car. I wanted to give you a ride home since I knew it was not safe out there.” She said then paused.
“I am sorry for being harsh to you; just that I am still angry.” I replied after I realized that I was too harsh on her.
“I understand Haman, you did not deserve what happened to you.” She replied.
“How did I get here?” I asked.
“I found you badly beaten up and took you. I brought you here since you needed immediate medical attention.” She replied.
“Thank you Bianca. I guess I was wrong about the rich kids; not all rich kids are selfish.” I said.
“Kindly forgive Jackie, she is just full of pride. I will talk to my dad and get you another job.” Bianca said.
The nurse then walked in and asked Bianca to let me have some rest. She promised to be visiting me daily and left me a banquet of flowers.
Two weeks later, I had recovered and I could walk on my own without the aid of a wheelchair.
I was ready to get discharged from the hospital and go home.
Bianca came to pick me up on a Friday morning. She cleared all my standing hospital bills and catered for everything.
“I have some good news Haman.” She said smiling.
“Which news Bianca?” I asked curiously.
“My dad reassigned my driver to his firm hence I will need a new driver.” She said.
“You are asking me to be your driver?” I asked.
“I guess so, I will pay you double of what you were getting from the Resort.” She replied.
“I will need time to think about that.” I said as I walked towards her car.
Before I became a waiter at Laxsmart Resort, I used to be their driver. The money I was getting from driving their vans was not adequate hence I requested the HR to transfer me to the bar.
Bianca and I drove off and we were headed to my apartment; just then I recalled something.
