Becky got the point, took her bag and stopped right before Matilda could
close the door and said ” babe, what about the bag you promised to give me
when we see today? ” She asked.
“Just get out already” Matilda yelled pushing her slightly with the door.
“Gosh, how can someone be this worthless and shameless. And to imagine I’ve
been friends with her for over 20 years is really …” Matilda stopped as
she returned to her room.
Matilda is a rich lady born with silver spoon and also doing all it takes
with hard work to maintain her status. She is very temperamental which is
mostly the cause of her frequent break up in her love life. Being the last
and only girl in the family of four, she had always hoped she married and
started her own family early. The sight of her parents evergreen love
always make her love love, but unfortunately for her she couldn’t hold on
to any relationship to last in marriage. Or maybe the men out there are not
just responsible enough for her. Men like her father obviously do not exist
Joan is often termed as the most intelligent is a married lady but without
issues yet. She’s newly married to John, her high school lover and they
live a little above average. John had been her first and only love, and she
had always pride in this making her friends a little uncomfortable.
She’s meek and understanding but Becky will always do everything possible
to infuriate her, and she sometimes find herself fighting back. Although
they are friends, they fight approximately 80% or more whenever they are
Becky on the other hand is a rich but dependant lady. She depends on her
parents, older siblings and guys sometimes older men for things.
She doesn’t have any particular thing doing at the moment but she’s always
To add to many more of her vices, she lacks contentment. She will always
have eyes for people’s things and she doesn’t mind begging for it. She has
borrowed more of Matilda and Joan’s things which she will never return. She
has even borrowed less expensive ear rings from Joan. But amidst all these,
she has a good heart. She’ll always call and check on her friends. She
doesn’t keep malice and she easily forgives as well.
Matilda let’s some stream of hot tears run down her cheek as she entered
her room. She purposely let it flow hoping it will mend a little or more
part of her broken heart.
” Is it possible I have a problem? Of course not. Or maybe I’m not just
lucky with men? How can I have all that a man can need and yet none of them
will be responsible enough not to misbehave with me? It seems the present
generation of men are cursed never to appreciate good and responsible
But Joan is married to a responsible man who practically worships her and
Becky has a whole lot of guys ready to walk her down the aisle but for the
fact that she isn’t ready to quit spinsterhood. Why’s my case so different?
Why can’t I just get a man who will love me completely for who I am. I will
be 27 in few weeks time and I am still single with no relationship. I’m
just so tired of all these. ” She moaned as she thought.
Her moan later became a loud wail before she drifted in to the Dreamland.
The sound of her alarm woke her up the next day and she had to struggle out
of the bed. Nothing comes between her and her job in the office, not even
after a hurtful breakup. She loved her job no doubt, but she wasn’t just
feeling too good that morning. Her head hurts and her stomach aches but
still she prepared for work.
She left for work forgetting to take her usual breakfast of bread and tea.
She started work as soon as she settled in. While many ladies hate
accounting, Matilda enjoys every bit of it especially the error free aspect
which is her specialty.
She has halted her work to attend to the secretary who had just brought in
files belonging to EniKay Concepts Company to work on their payroll. Right
in the presence of her secretary she felt uneasy, and started sweating
profusely even with with the Air Conditioner that was on a full blast.
“Are you alright ma’am?” the secretary asked and before Matilda could
reply, she had collapsed hitting her head on the table before she finally
reached the ground.
