I accepted the offer from the generous company and they invited me for an interview with the board of CEOs of the company. I went for the interview and everything went well. Or should I say “was going well” till a young man came in and requested to see the CEO with the highest share in the company in private.
They left the room and came back after a while and that was when I sensed that something was wrong. After whispering back and forth to each other, they finally faced me and told me what was happening.
Someone was selling a similar product to a larger company out of the country! That was impossible!
And the tricky part was that not only was the product the same, they also had very similar names.
I was shocked. I was really shocked. Just when you finally see a light at the end of the tunnel, life decides to hit you with bricks on the head till you black out and the light burns out.
I asked for the name of the company and the next day, I was out of the country. I got to where I was going at noon and lodged at a hotel. I didn’t want to rush into the big task ahead of me so, I stayed at the hotel that day and the next day, I was out.
And that day, it turned out to be that not only was I out to claim the most important thing in my life, I was also out starting the beginning of a whole new life entirely! How? You read on!
When I got to the company that morning, I met a very skinny but nice lady. The only person who could have had access to the software was Kelvin and I had a feeling that he could have easily transferred it from my laptop that day when I was away to call my dad; so when the lady asked me what she could do for me, I requested to see a Mr Kelvin Morgan that worked there.
The lady told me there was no one with such name working in there and after exhausting all possible name ideas I could come up with, I left the building equally exhausted.
I found a marble bench somewhere outside the company and sat down. I could practically see the whole of my life crumbling before my eyes. I wondered how much more I would lose before life decided it had had enough fun tormenting me and the thought made me tear up.
I bent my head in pain and let the tears flow freely. Life had been cruel, particularly on me.
I raised my head again to take a deep breath and it was then that I saw the least expected but most anticipated thing in my life.
Shoulder length jet black hair, black shirt, skinny jeans and stiletto heels, I saw Devon!
