ACRIMONY Episode 1 – Ayogu Oluchi Eze

Nelson was sceptical about his friend’s recommendation.

“Consider her, please. It’s not fair, she’s just roaming the streets. For old-time sake please help her.”

“I don’t want to have anything to do with her anymore.”

“You are saying this because you haven’t seen her state. If you see Uju, I swear you will pity her.”

“Hmmm, okay I’ll consider your plea.

“Thanks my man, you are a good man.”

Uju was Nelson’s ex-girlfriend, they dated during their university days.

During their service year, Uju met a wealthy married man who promised her the whole world.

The man rented an apartment for her, gifted her a car and offered her a huge sum of money each time she graced his bed.

Later on, Uju started neglecting Nelson and finally broke up with him because she felt she met a richer person unknown to her that the man was hypertensive. About a year later, the man had a serious heart attack and passed out in her house.

The man’s wife used her influence to remand Uju in prison for three years.

When Uju was later released, she lost everything that the man gave her. She was forced to go back to her poor parents and live with them.

It was about two months after her release that Nelson’s friend saw her.

Nelson had placed an advert for a secretary in his Consulting firm and his friend was pleading that he should take Uju in as his secretary.

Nelson spurned at first but because he pitied her, he accepted.

Nelson’s friend then told him that he would bring her to his office the following day. They talked about other things and he later left.

The following day, Nelson’s friend brought Uju to Nelson’s office. He never told her that it was Nelson who owned the place where he got a job for her.

They waited at the reception until they were called in.

Uju was surprised to see Nelson as the Manager of the firm. She was shocked at his transformation. She gazed at him with total disbelief.

Nelson kept to his lane. He pretended as if he had never met her before. He welcomed them and referred Uju to HR for an interview. He did it just for formality’s sake.

She was taken afterwards and her documents were collected.

She was asked to resume work immediately.

To be continued.
