“THE STORY OF A RUNS GIRL” (EPISODE 6)
Omote sipped the chocolate tea slowly.
Thoughts of Isioma ran through her mind over
and over again. How she survived getting
through five husbands in 10years still shocked
She didn’t tell her sister Tega of her
conversations with Isioma.
“I have gotten a job.” Tega said excitedly.
Omote’s heart skipped joyously as she dropped
the tea cup on a Stool. Her face beamed with a
“A primary school at Iyana Paja. As a primary
school teacher. The salary is manageable.”
“Primary school at Iyana Paja?” Omote asked
Amazingly. “How much is the salary?”
“Twenty thousand naira.” She said smiling
wide. “Oghene! Tega, Twenty thousand naira for a first class graduate?”
“It’s better than staying at home.”
“From here to Iyana paja is five hundred naira
Tega. you will spent more than thirty thousand
for snacks and transportation. I will advice you
stay at home patiently. I can be paying you the
twenty thousand monthly, until I can get you a
shop.” Omote said softly.
“Thank you.” Tega whispered as a line of tear
ran through her eyes. “You are indeed my best
friend and sister. I love you.” Omote became
emotional. Her sister’s words hit her with an
emotional force. she hugged Tega to herself
Omote reluctantly rose from the bed to prepare for work. She had been away from work for
two days without permission.
She was tagged by her colleagues as ‘oga’s
Queen.’ She disobeyed the rules and
regulations of the company, and did whatever
she wanted with her time.
Whenever she stepped into the office,
everywhere became quiet. People had started
suspecting that she was in a relationship with
“Good morning Helena.” Omote greeted the
receptionist shrilly as she signed the company’s
“Good morning aunty Omor.” Helena replied
Aunty Omor I missed you these few days o.
Even though some bad belle people who don’t
like you gossiped about you.”
“What did they say?” Omor asked, her face
“Blessing and Nneka said yesterday that if they
were the ones who stayed back from work just
a day, that oga would have given them query.
But that you come to work twice in a week, but
still get a full salary. Nneka concluded that it’s
because you are oga’s girlfriend.” Helena
Omor handed her a two hundred naira note
and walked away elegantly.
“Thank you o aunty.” Helena said in a loud
tone. Omote stepped into the main office entrance and her eyes caught with Blessing and Nneka who gave a pretentious smile. ” Ah Omor baby! how far nau?” But Omote ignored. She walked straight up to her boss’s office without saying a word.
“Olodoshi” Blessing whispered and sighed.
Omote clicked her boss’s office open without
knocking twice like other staffs do.
“Omalicha!” Her boss hailed excitedly. “Come and give daddy a kiss.”
“I don’t know what I have done to Blessing and
co. They keep gossiping me in this office.” She
“Don’t mind those old women, they are jealous
of your beauty Omalicha. Their husbands are
not taking good care of them the way I do to
you.” Her boss said, smiling. His gaze slid down
from her shoulders to her breast.
Omote walked over to his chair, and sat slowly
on his laps.
The door opened immediately, and their heart
slammed as a woman’s voice awoke their
guts. “My husband!”
Omote was in real trouble.
