Story: MY TREASURE Chapter 15

Story: MY TREASURE Chapter 15
MY TREASURE
Chapter 15

... Ehi couldn't even give a concrete account of the 1.2 million supposedly remaining after her shopping spree,she was only able to present 1million Naria,she had spent it on necessities, according to her.....i ignored that,for my own peace of mind,we had four million Naria to establish with....

I paid for the place,and even accompanied her to the market, together with her mother,to buy goods for her shop,I had pleaded with my colleague to allow his wife accompany us ,so we would know where to buy goods from..

My colleague's wife Mrs Victoria, was very helpful,she introduced Ehi to distributors, marketers,and even producers,and they gave us discount...

It wasn't a one day thing,but with the help of Mrs Victoria,it wasn't difficult for Ehi,as she already knew those to meet in the market...

I bought a big plasma TV,a decoder,and a big generator for her,I had to add about 200 thousand from my personal servings,I wanted her to be comfortable in here shop,in a matter of one week, Ehi's mini supermarket was well equipped,and opened for business...

I was happy and fulfilled,if my wife is busy with something,and I on my end is working hard, then we shall be able to clear the loan in no time,and build our financial life together....

How's sales going,I had asked her one evening after about a week of her opening,well, business is going perfectly fine, Infact,the rate at which it is going,I would need someone to assist me,I mean a sales representative,she said.....

Oh that would be great,but iye is always home,I was thinking what if she's going to the shop with you,at least that would keep her busy andddddddd,,,

Amadi hold it there,oh because I said I needed a sales person,you want me to make my mother one,is that how little you think of my mother.she asked angrily,...

No dear, don't say that,you are misinterpreting me,my intentions are pure and true and you know that,I am just saying,going out is more fun and healthy,rather than been alone at home every day,and it doesn't stop you from getting a sales person,I Managed to explain rephrasing my sentence....

Well,I wouldn't want to force her,if she feels like,she could come on her own, if not,she could relax at home,she said....

Okay,no problem,if you say so,I said....

About three days later, Ehi informed me she had found someone,a young girl in her early twenties,I was happy for her,at least that will save her some stress...

One Saturday,I decided to go see how things were going in the shop....

Getting there,I met the new sales person,,I introduced myself,and she welcomed me warmly,she said her name was Gloria,the shop was busy,where is your madam,I had asked her,she went to make her nails,she replied,...

I was very happy at the progress, business seems to be going on fine,at about 2pm, Gloria's face was looking dull and pale, what's wrong,I had asked her,I am hungry sir,I need to go get lunch,but madam isn't around,she had said...

Oh that,you can go,I shall take it up from here,just be fast,I said..

Thank you very much sir,I am grateful,she said in appreciation....

Less than 5minutes she left, Ehi came back,she was surprised to see me....

Ahe honey,you are here,she asked.

Yes dear,I decided to pay you a visit,I have been here for some hours, Gloria told me you went to polish your nails,I replied...

Yes,I did,so where is she, Ehi asked...

She just stepped out,she said she wants to get lunch,I said...

So Gloria left the shop to go for lunch,she couldn't wait for me to come back,she said already getting angry..

Honey,I permitted her,it's two hours past midday, anyone could be angry already,I tried to make her see reasons...

Are you taking side with a mare sales girl over your wife,she asked in suppressed anger...

Honey come on,I am not taking sides with her,I am only saying the truth,she left because I permitted her,and because I am here to manage the shop, before she returns,I don't think she would have left the shop if I wasn't here,I said....

Ehi gave me that look,and kept quiet, apparently she saw the conversation was heading no where....

About 15 minutes later, Gloria returned, welcome ma,she greeted Ehi,who walked up to her and landed a slap on her right cheek,how dare you leave my shop to God knows where in my absence,she shouted at her... 

Gloria was very shocked, so was i...I am sure she didn't see that coming,

But honey,I thought I told you I permitted Gloria to go for lunch while I attend to customers,I asked confused,she just gave me a deaf ear,and went on with what ever she was doing with her records book...

I didn't want to say anything offensive in the presence of her employee,so I told her I was leaving,there was somewhere I needed to be.i came out and drove home...

I waited for her to return,when she did after we had all eaten,I called her to our bedroom....

Honey,I didn't like the way you treated your employee today,I mean you were not only too harsh on her,but you were as well rude to me, even when I told you I permitted her,it didn't matter to you,the fact that someone works for you doesn't in anyway make the person less of a human being...I said trying so much not to be angry....

So Amadi,you are going to teach me how to handle my business and worker?,wait,was that why you left the house,or any other place you could have been to my shop?,see Amadi,you don't tell me how to handle my sales girl,I pay her,so I can treat her just how I want,she said...

I looked at her,so many thoughts going through my mind,who would have thought Ehi who has experienced been abused and mistreated will do same to someone else....

I didn't want to say anything to worsen the situation,so I just quietly went to bed,even though she continued talking,I tried my best to ignore her....

It was almost six months,and I called Ehi to remind her it was time for us to start paying back the loan...

Honey,you know it almost six months,two weeks from today,it will be time for us to start paying back the loan, remember we are to make a first payment of 500 thousand,then we shall start paying 200 thousand every month end,hope you have been able to raise something,i asked...

I have something,and two weeks is still far from now,she said and went to bed...

I was happy she said she had something already, before two weeks maybe it would be completed,I said,I went to bed happy and proud of her.....

Two weeks came like a flash, sweetie,I shall be going to the bank on Monday so I could make the payment,hope the money is ready,I asked her,it's not complete oh,she had said,oh really,okay what do you have let me see if I can add up and complete the payment,I said....

She went to her bag and brought out some money,and gave me,the money was looking so little,how much is this,I asked her...

That's 50 thousand Naria she said.....

What,Ehi what are you talking about,how would you say you were able to raise only 50 thousand Naria,how do you expect me to get 450,000 to make this first payment,what exactly have you been doing with the profit you make from sales so far,I provide you with everything, what do you meannnnnnnnn

Amadi please, don't insult me, don't,you aren't the first man to establish his wife and you are certainly not going to the last,other men invest 50_100 million in businesses for their wives and don't ask them to pay back,common 4milliion Naria you want me to start paying back in instalment, that's all I could raise,you take it or leave it,she said so rudely.....

What exactly is wrong with you, Ehi what is your problem,do yoh think I have the money and refused to establish you,you know the situation of things with me,did I make a mistake to have taken a loan for your business,for heaven's sake you knew from the beginning where I got the money, where would I get 450,000 on or before Monday morning, Ehi what have I done to you to deserve all these, what exactly,I asked almost Sharing a tear....

I don't have time for this rubbish,she said,as she walked out of our bedroom to her mother's room,,,,

I sat on the bed,with uncontrollable years running down my cheeks......
