“No sir…he only tried t….
” Richie.. I warned you…. didn’t I…I warned you twice over this girl… I have caught you looking at her severally…and I called you and warned you to stay off, carry your passion outside my house…I told you not to go close, she is under my roof, under me and suppose to feel safe in this house…what is wrong with you… Have you gone nut…what are you doing in her room uninvited…if your bladder is hot why not go to some brothel out there and ease it off, by the way I thought you have a girlfriend…your girlfriend Sonia will be so disappointed if she knows the kind of man you are… See Richie I have sacrifice much for you as a brother…and also tolerated so much shit just because we are blood and our late parents left you in my care but there’s a limit i can take from a grown ass man like you… if you ever go against my rules again in this house I will willingly kick you out…or even lock you up and forget you ever existed…you should know what I’m capable off… Do not dare me Richie…Pia any day he tries anything funny around you don’t hesitate to let me know…I’m glad that you shouted…don’t be scared no one will hurt you here… I promise you that…just keep being a good girl…you are safe under my roof…so feel safe…Richie will not trouble you again…
After the incident Richie started avoiding me, he doesn’t mop at me like he use to do, he stopped the constant looks, he was scared of his elder brother, he even comes home with his girlfriend sometimes, Sonia, who felt I was a threat to her boyfriend, she was acting up in the beginning which never stops me from being nice to her, she later put off her attitude and started being more friendly with me, Sonia was a beautiful young girl and loved Richie, any time she spends a weekend in the house she will always want to help out, she was the only girl Richie brings to the house, and I know his elder brother will not tolerate him bringing in numerous girls to his house,
my boss was very discipline, but no woman visits him, and I haven’t met his family yet, I once ask Ben the Butler, who has being with him far before me, I asked him about my boss family, if he has wife and children and Ben told me when he newly started working for him,
“Mr Ken use to have a lady who comes around often and on, the lady came from a poor home but Mr Ken polished her up, got a car for her, send her abroad for her master degree program, but on getting out she had a white boyfriend and didn’t want to come back again, so Mr Ken later moved on, then after almost two years, he had another lady whom he loved and cared for, he had good intentions for her but the lady got pregnant for another man and planned to rub the pregnancy on Mr Ken, who actually believed that the child was his and was happy, he started planing for happy family but the truth was suddenly revealed when the child’s real father surfaced and took his child, after DNA test revealed Mr ken wasn’t the biological father, he was broken after that incident and has being on his own ever since, he use to be very harsh after those incident especially to his workers but after sometime he became nice again, he hate it when he is taken for granted, you are very Lucky Pia to work with him, although he can be very difficult to please sometime but he is a good man, this is the little I know about him, I don’t know if he has family outside here, maybe a Wife or a child, I just don’t know and I haven’t seen any before, you are the first female he has employed in years and also be kind to, he avoided female workers in the house maybe because of what happened in the past, he felt like women are not to be trusted, but he has erased that mentality and that was why he allowed you live and work with him, I have being working for him for so many years now, he trust me and I try not to disappoint him, he has being a blessing to me and my family, he is not just nice to you because you are a female, no…not all…he is nice to all his workers, but he hates it when his orders are disobeyed, but I see he is extra nice to you, don’t blow it up Pia, just keep being a good girl and Mr Ken will extend his kindness to your family also, just like he did for mine…
I thanked Ben and went back to my quarters, and that night I prayed for my boss to find real love and happiness again, he is a good man, I don’t fully knows his story but I know he has a kind heart which despite he has being taken for granted severally it did not stop him from being good.
My boss called me one day and said since I will soon be going to the university I have to get some body that will replace me in the house, who is also hardworking like me, if I don’t have any then he has to put up an advert online, he need a trust worthy person, the person must know how to cook very well, and she can stay in the staff quarters like me,
I told him not to put up advert yet let me check if I can get somebody first, I also thanked him again for his kindness, I just can’t stop thanking him
Today he didn’t go out he was just passing orders through his phone to his company staff, after which he lay down on a couch while watching the CNN news showing on television, i can see his mind was far but his eyes was on the television, so I mustered courage and went to him to ask if he was okay
“Sorry to disturb you sir…I just want to ask if you are alright…do you need me to do anything for you..or you want to talk about something…I will be glad to listen..I just want to make sure that you are alright..
” yeah..I’m fine Pia, just want to a take rest today…
“Okay Sir, I will be in the kitchen in case you need anything…
” alright…oh wait…come and sit down… Let’s talk, I don’t know why my mind is playing tricks on me this days, you are growing into the woman i use to know in the past, you reminds me of someone, bringing back old memory, but that’s by the way, You have not really told me much about your parents… Or have you told me before and I probably forgot…
“My parents… are back in my home town..there’s nothing much to tell about them sir…
“I guess speaking about them saddens you, they must have being a terrible parents to have abandoned you…I use to feel terrible sometime when I think of the past, I wish I can right my wrongs, you must have wondered where my family are because you haven’t seen any of my family member aside Richie, for over three years you have being here, well I got jilted severally, I lost count though and I felt it was my past sin that is catching up with me, I’m not a terrible person Pia but I did something terrible so many years ago, I was much younger and have youthful blood flowing in my veins then, I’m not telling you this to gain your pity but for you to learn, I was living under my late parents who wanted me to study business Admintration after my secondary, so that I can take over my father’s business, I didn’t quickly got admission, I waited for almost three years before entering university, I was a bit wayward then, within that three years I was home seeking for admission i was also living life like it never matters, I had a girlfriend back then, my parents doesn’t know about, it was kind of a secret relationship because my parents who were trying all their means for me to get into schools mustn’t know of my crazy life style, I continued with the girl and just when I finally got my long waited admission she came with the news that she was pregnant, I was angry with her for being so careless and I told her to go and abort it, I threatened her when she refused, and i even denied I was responsible for it, well I went to school and forgot she ever existed, after years of studying and finally graduated, I came home and wanted to know what becomes of her and the Baby, I started asking around and was told the lady gave birth to a girl who she later left with her mother, is being almost twenty years now or more this thing happened, the little girl was with her sick grandmother who was taking care of her, she wa…
My boss Phone was ringing and he picked and it was a report from the office so I excused him to go make lunch for him because he skipped his breakfast, it was time for his lunch, maybe after eating if he still have time for the story I will be so glad to listen…I was already enjoying the story, although it brings back sad memories for him, pain was written across his face, I guess he never wanted to talk about it but because I looked like somebody from his past he decided to talk about it, maybe his daughter that the Lady born for him died that’s why he could not find her and he feels so sad about it, let me hurry up so that I can hear the rest of the story.
PIA Episode 12 by Amah’s Heart
My boss didn’t eat much, he asked me to make fruit salad of which I quickly did, Richie later came back with Sonia and went straight to his own apartment up stairs,
i sat on one of the couch as my boss continued the story, but I decided to ask first
“Is the girl still alive, what happened to her sir..
” I don’t know Pia, I don’t even know if she’s alive or not, I don’t know what she looks like, I searched for her mother and learnt she was already married and moved to another city, she must have felt bad looking at the child, the little girl must have reminded her of how terrible I was and the sadness I brought upon her life, probably that was why she dumped the child with the sick woman, and when I heard where my…my daughter was…Pia felt so awful calling her my daughter, a child I denied and never set my eyes on, I went to my parents and summoned the boldness to tell them what I did years back, I told them about the girl and they felt so sad that I could be so heartless, they wanted me to do the right thing by apologising to the Lady I got pregnant and bring their granddaughter to them, but the lady was already married and have moved on, they desperately wanted to meet their grandchild, who they were happy she was alive, that was one of my parents wish I never fulfilled before they both got involve in an accident and died, I and my brother was home and got the news that my dad’s car collided with a trailer who had break failure and ran into them, so before they could be rushed to the hospital my dad died and my mum died after few days…
It was a terrible time, so preparing for the burial of both parents was…was one of the most painful and sad moment of my life Pia, so I didn’t continue with the search for my daughter, I just put it on hold to fully recover from my lost, I felt more sad because my parents didn’t get to meet her before the accident, she would have being my mum and dad little and only daughter because they never had one, she would have brought great laughter to their face, my parents were looking forward to meeting their grand child before everything went dark….after the whole trouble was over I went ahead to meet my daughter, on getting there I got another shock that the grandmother died and has being buried but nobody knows exactly where the girl was, sh..
“Sorry to interrupt, you mean the little girl’s grandmother also died, and nobody can tell what becomes of the girl, do you know if your daughter’s mother came to pick her…
“Yeah, the girl’s mother does not want to have anything to do with the child, because the child reminds her of me and the way I treated her, I guess though, nobody knows, the grandmother was already dead so whoever she gave the child to or wherever the child maybe nobody knows…well I moved on, trying to make great meaning out of my life Pia, My full name is Kennedy Brown, you must have seen it somewhere or heard of it, my company name is K, Brown. With all that I have acquired in life I still feel empty, no child to bear my name, I..I..try to start a family severally but it seems not to work out, I still think of my lost daughter sometime and also my late parents and it saddens me…I just wish I can change back the hand of time and right my wrongs, I know many years has gone by, if my girl was with me… she would have being be a big girl by now, finished university or probably studying abroad, the first day you came you told me you were 20years then, which means you will be 23 or 24years by now, my daughter will be 20 or 21, you are older than her with two years or so, life thought me a big lesson, I learnt in a hard way…I don’t know why I’m telling you so much Pia, but i Feel comfortable talking with you, I just want to share my sad story with someone maybe the burden in my heart may ease off..
” I’m sorry for your trouble sir, I’m also sorry that I lied about my age, I’m 21years now, I was just about to clock 17years when I came seeking for job and I know you would have written me off, you wouldn’t have employed me if you know I was a teenager and so I lied that I was twenty then, but last month I completed 21years, I’m sorry sir…
“Hmmm, well you were right, I wouldn’t have employed you if I know you were just seventeen, although you looked too thin and malnourished then I accepted you mostly because you were coming from Jerry who spoke of your amazing strength, despite how you look, talking about Jerry, he is a very hardworking young man, do you know Richie is older than him yet he act more matured than Richie, Jerry is struggling to make a good name for himself, you Will think he is older because of his bears, Jerry use to work for me, and he was trustworthy, I like him, I want Richie to start planing on settling down with Sonia, he shouldn’t wait for me or follow all my foot steps, except he wants all his hair to turn White where he is waiting for me to marry first, funny but true, he is my only family now and I want the Best for him, Richie also knows of my daughter that I never met, in fact in most of the search then I was driving around with him, everyone in my family were so eager to meet her but life took a different turn for us,
” do she have a name… I mean your daughter..?
“I don’t even know her name… I never met her, that’s why I feel crazy referring to her as my daughter… I’m a terrible father…if only her grand mother was alive things wouldn’t have ended up worst for me…or probably I wasn’t meant to be in her life because I denied her and rejected her mother… My parents death took big effect on me but I scaled through…
” I also lost my grandmother at a very tender age, she was the first person that ever loved me, she brought me up, she wasn’t sick but she was always coughing, I remember giving her water any time that cough starts, I later went to live with aunty Koh, suddenly… the news of her death came like a blow, I wasn’t even allowed to attend her burial, I cried so much when Aunty Koh told me she was dead, after she was gone I had nobody again, I have not visited home for over ten years now, I don’t even have any body to visit, I don’t even know who my father is, i was referred to as a bastard, i was born out of wedlock…and aunty Koh do say I will end up like my harlot mother, it was a constant reminder from her and I’m glad because I’m working towards proving her wrong, all thanks to you sir, for giving my life a real meaning, although my mother whom i don’t even know so well… got married and…
“Hold on Pia…wait…i want to understand something, you said you lost your grandmother, and that your mother had you out of wedlock and handed you over to your grandmother…you were taking away to live with your aunty Koh, Your mother got married and…. Your grandmother died..you clock twenty one last month..you don’t know who your father is…hmmm…oh my Goooood…what is your mother name and where are you really from…can you still remember the year your grandmother died…
With the way my boss started sweating all of a sudden, I wanted to get him cold drink from the chiller, and high the air condition but he hushed me to sit put and answer his question, I was laughing in my mind as I answered all he asked me, do my boss think I’m his lost daughter, that’s very funny, is not possible, is only a mare coincident that we have similar storyline, but I’m not the lost child of this huge rich kind man, is not possible…except I’m in a dreamland, although deep down I so much wish he is, but is too much of a wish to have a wealthy kind father like my boss and it also sounds crazy in my head
My boss was acting crazy, as he stare at me deeply, I didn’t understand what was goings on, so i stood up to leave, my boss stood up and started shouting, I was shock, the security rushed down and just at that moment Richie and his girlfriend rushed down, I was scared already because I thought my boss was going crazy and I don’t want to loose my job, he started putting at me while shouting “she’s the one…oh my God..
Ooooh…she’s the one”
everyone was confuse, Richie came to hold him, asking him to calm down so that everybody can understand what that is really going on,
my boss couldn’t keep calm, he came to me and I saw tears in his eyes as he held me close to him self, he was sobbing like a Baby, while saying
” Pia…You are my daughter”
I didn’t know what to say or what to do, I just held him silently, his tall huge body covered mine, for the first time I felt connected,
Richie doubted it and said it was not possible, he said he was calling a Doctor for a DNA test, and the doctor came and the test was carried out, and it was confirmed,
I was Pia Kennedy Brown, or Pia Brown or Pia Ken, i was already going crazy like my boss..I was my boss missing daughter, my boss was actually my father.
I felt dizzy instantly and staggered, they held me, and gently sat me down on the couch,
My boss or should i say my D…A….D. It sound some how in my ears, he couldn’t get enough of me as if he was seeing me for the first time, he lifted me from the chair to his shoulder like a child,
I was in a total shock, my boss has being shedding tears while still holding me ,
everybody even Richie is still speechless as he widened his eyes looking at me and holdings his head,
Could this be a dream, i don’t know if I will ever get out of this shock, is as if I have being thunderstruck with this realization.
