Josh is a very handsome young man not every lady will withstand his charming smile. He works in a big supermarket. The assistance manager, Miss Sandra Lane has been eyeing Josh ever since Josh started working in that supermarket. She has been sending Josh secret gifts and love letters tagged with the gift telling Josh how she feels about him, but Josh has been declining her requests. As it seems now it looks like Josh is going to play the ball since it is in his court.
That day Josh reached office and Sandra winked at him as usual, to her greatest surprise Josh winked back and even threw her a kiss in the thin air. That day became the happiest day in the life of Sandra because of a lifelong dream coming true. The next day she sent Josh a dinner request josh accepted, in the evening they found themselves drinking and chatting in a restaurant. A lot was going on in Josh’s mind as to how to play the game brilliantly. ‘I want to break your heart really pieces’. He thought to himself.
Now she has drank herself to stupor and is now talking under the influence of alcohol. “Josh, what took you so long to make this day come true? I love you and you know that but you kept on snubbing me all these while, why? She asked. You know what, forget it because it doesn’t matter now what matters is that you have accepted my request, she added. Josh smiled. Oh! You are killing me with that smile. Josh, please would you take me home I am exhausted, said Sandra. Okay, Miss Sandra my pleasure, said Josh. Josh I have told you to stop calling me Miss Sandra, she held Josh’s cheeks and whispered into his ear “call me Sandy” she immediately slumped. Josh got her up and took her to her house and light fades.
The next day Josh came to work expecting to see Miss Sandra happy about yesterday’s evening but the reverse was the case, this left Josh in a state of confusion. He had wanted to approach her to ask her the problem but he became afraid he might lose his job. “Has anybody offended her this early morning even if anybody has offended her, she should at least smile at me because I wasn’t the one that offended her besides, we really had a good evening yesterday” Josh thought to himself.
Later that evening when Josh was about to go home Miss Sandra called him via phone from office telling him to report to her office at once.
“I am going to lose my Job. What have I done to myself? I never should have accepted that dinner request in the first place, but it’s just dinner nothing else happened” he thought to himself as he climbs the staircase to Sandra’s office.
‘Good evening Miss Sandra ‘Josh greeted her. ‘Good evening Josh please sit down’ she replied.
‘Josh’. She called. Did you notice I wasn’t in good mood today? She asked. I noticed, Miss Sandra, Josh replied. Good, now what I need from you is the truth and nothing but the truth, she said. Truth about what? Josh asked in low tone.
What did you do to me last night? She asked. I took you home after you slumped at the restaurant because of excessive intake of alcohol. Josh replied.
Yes I noticed because I woke up at my house, but after you took me home what happened? She asked. Josh guessed at thin air for a moment remembering that nothing happened replied. “Nothing happened, Miss Sandra, I went home almost immediately”. Are you sure nothing happened? Are you sure you didn’t do it. She gestured at Josh. It didn’t even come to my mind even if it did; I wouldn’t do that because it’s only a useless man that does such thing. Josh replied with a slightly high tone because he now feels uncomfortable.
Ok, I believe you Josh, Sandra said touching his cheeks. I hope you are not angry about the way I reacted, I am sorry. She added. You are welcome said Josh. Both smiled at each other and it’s already 5:30 pm Josh went home happily knowing that it wasn’t a big deal contrary to what he had expected from Sandra. I still have my job, I like my job he said while driving home and light fades.
