Monday morning, I dragged my body to the office. I don’t know why I was so tired and lazy. Since work had to be done, I kept my cool and did my part.
Two new staff came in at around nine. As the HR, I had to show them around the office. I took them to the different offices, introduced them to the other employees then showed them where they would seat. I gave them some new stationary that they would use for their time in the organisation. The department head came and started showing them what they would do.
I found the tea girl placing a wide mug of coffee on my desk. She excused herself and left. I took the mug and drunk it with few nuts I had carried from home.
Ann came by the office during lunch hour. She was dressed in a black skirt suit, black stilettos and a brown handbag. She was carrying a white paper-bag too. She strutted directly to my office and sat down on the chairs next to my desk.
“Hey girl.” She said as she sat.
“Hey Ann. What a surprise!” I replied.
“Sorry about that. I thought I would check on you and give you this.” She said as she gave me the paper-bag.
I opened it slowly not sure what to expect. Inside the bag, there was a small white wooden case. I lifted the lid and saw a beautiful Marc Jacobs Riley gold wrist watch.
“OMG, is this mine?” I asked.
I rose up from my seat and gave her a hug.
“Yes it is.”
“Did you win a lottery?” I asked while trying to wear the watch.
“This watch is not cheap.”
She laughed. “Can’t a friend just buy her best friend a gift?”
“Yes you can.”
I gave her another hug before I sat down.
“So what’s the occasion?” I asked.
“None. I just wanted to give you something small for always being there for me.”
“Aaaaww, that’s so sweet.” I responded. “I appreciate it so much. Thank you.”
“You are welcome.”
