Rose finally arranged everything and
opened the door, she saw Susan, before
she could greet her, she gave her a sound
“For how long had I been knocking”
“I’m sorry ma’am” Rose replied with tears
“Go and arrange my bed, after go and
wash those clothes before you start telling
me that you are tired”
“Okay ma’am” Susan wanted to go
“Lest I forget, prepare breakfast for him
first, because he will be leaving for work
very soon”
“Okay ma’am” she left and Rose hurried
David is out for work, Susan was left
alone in the house with Rose, Rose
finished all her morning duties and took
her bath, she sat under a tree outside
during nothing in particular, she was
missing Stella, she will be back tomorrow,
she also thought about the ill treatment
that Susan had been giving her
“Any way, I don’t blame her, because I’m
working here, that is why a girl of my age
would be ordering me around” she said
and hissed, just then, a man walked inside
the compound with a young man carrying
a bag, Rose greeted them
“I’m Mr John, and this is Paul, he will be
working here as the new security man
with the instruction of your boss” Rose
had not said anything when Susan walked
out from the house, Mr John turned and
greeted her
“David told me about that, thank you very
“You are welcome”
“He dropped something for you, just wait
a minute” Susan went inside and returned
with an envelope, she handed it over to

“Thank you very much”
“Rose, show him to his quarter”
“Okay ma’am” Susan entered inside
“Paul, remember what I told you”
“Yes sir I will remain good” he hugged him
and he left
“what did you say is your name again”
“Paul” he replied smiling sillily
“Hey, mind how you behave in this house
if you don’t want small Madam to knock
out your head”
“There is something that I want to tell
you” Paul said with a smile
“What is that” Rose replied opening the
door for him
“Do you know that you are very beautiful,
you deserve a man like me”
“You are very stupid, look at me very well”
Rose replied turning around
“Do you think that I can go down for a
local boy like you, in case you don’t know,
I’m going to marry a rich man” Paul
bursted out laughing
“Look at this one, never think that you are
beautiful, you just look like curved idol”
he started laughing again
“Let me see who will give you food today”
Rose hissed and left.
Piggy is getting better, Stella was ready to
go, her mother was there as well
“Sister are you leaving?” Piggy asked in
“Don’t worry Piggy, I will come to see you
again” Stella replied rubbing his hair
“Stella, you have to start going before it
becomes dark” she hugged her mother and
pecked Piggy and left with her hand bag.
Stella got to the gate and found it locked,
that was unusual, she knocked at the gate
and a young man came out
“Who are you looking for” he asked
“I’m Stella and I works here”
“wait let me confirm first”
“Okay you can do that” Paul was about to
close the gate when Rose pushed him
down and hugged her
“You are welcome Stella, I’m happy”
“I wonder how you had been with small
“I hate her, she likes ordering me around”
“She is full of her self, yet she does not
know anything”
“How dare you gossip about me” Susan
shouted behind them, she lifted her hand
to slap Stella but someone held her hand.
