BROKEN FENCES

                          CHAPTER 6-10

     TRICIA’S POV

       Please give me the job and stop looking at me. When i’m employed, you can look at me all day like a photograph. i said in my thoughts.
  “Alright, you got the job” she said finally breaking the awkward silence and sudden inconvenient atmosphere between us.
 I am really happy now, even if the pay is not that much at least it is better than none .
“I can resume now if you want you know ” i told her
“Okay” she replied and called somebody on the phone. Soon the door opened to reveal the girl i met and who directed me to the office.
” Take her to the secretary, give her a uniform, after that tell her what she is expected to do as a waiter, how she is expected to behave. The rules. Am i understood ?
 ” Yes ma’am ” she replied
  We both came out of her office. We went to the secretary’s office and  she gave me my uniform. It’s a little above my knee and it fits me perfectly. After which she took me to where seem to be the back yard of the restaurant and we sat there.
” So what’s your name “? she asked
 “Tricia, Logan Tricia” i answered
 “Well nice name, I’m Sophie ” she said.
 And from then we started discussing about work and things outside work. I found out she lives on her own. She don’t live with her parents. They are in another country but they sends her money for her up keep.

Am sorry is short, don’t like breaking promises that’s why i post this one. Next chapter will be really long.
 There’s no light that’s why, my phone is about to switch off.

                   TRICIA: CHAPTER 7

     TRICIA’S      POV

    She is really friendly and i think i already like her.  During work, we discussed as we were serving customers and she makes me laugh most of the time.   I think i found another person like Fiona.
   After the day’s work, we bade each other goodbye and i went back to the hotel.

           SOPHIE’S     POV
    I am really happy today, Tricia just made my day.  I just met her today and it looks like i’ve  known her all my life.   I wouldn’t want today to come to an end, i bade her goodbye and went home.   Well, i saw the way Ryan was looking at her today.  Ryan works as a supervisor, he also has a friend Lucas. They were employed not too long.
 I kinda like him !  Don’t get me wrong, i am not even close to him, haven’t summed up enough courage to do so.

    RYAN’S.     POV
    A new girl was employed today. She is really cute with long straight hair, brown eyes and a perfectly curved body. The uniform fits her perfectly and it brought out her curves.  I just kept starring at her, her smiles are so charming.
  Awwnn,  i  don’t really know how to describe her. She’s an angel.
    Lucas also noticed the way i was starring at her and he made fun of me. I think the girl’s name is Tricia, i heard Sophie calling her that.   I’m anxious to go to work tomorrow because of her.

      TRICIA’S     POV
       I got home, freshened up and lied on my bed.  Ah…. Today was nice, the workers are really friendly.

         HELEN’S.    POV
    Tricia has been missing for days now, this is the most foolish girl i have ever seen.   I even went to that her friend’s house.   What’s her name again ……. Fiona. I lost the huge amount of money i was supposed to get.

        TRICIA’S.    POV
     I need an apartment to stay in the money i brought is already exhausted. It has been six says i starred working as a waiter and Sophie has been a good friend.    We are both sitting now, it’s our break, maybe i should plead with her to allow me stay with her for sometime till i get an apartment.
   ” Uh um mm,  Sophi can u do me a favour ?”
  ” Yes, what is it ?”
  ” Please can i stay at your place before i get an apartment ?”
 ” Sure” she replied smiling.

                      SOPHIE’S POV

      I am actually happy Tricia wants to stay with me.    I am tired of staying alone, i was even thinking of telling my cousin to come stay with me. Only Sam spends the night with me sometimes.   After the day’s work we both went to the hotel she logged in , she took her bag and we went to her house.  I took her to a room and i left to make dinner. When i was done, i went back to call  her.
    ” Tricia are you done unpacking ?”
   “I’m through, just want to freshen up” she said
  ” Ok, when you are done come for dinner”
   “Alright she replied smiling. I guess she is happy just as i am.  We discussed about some things and asked questions about our selves. I found out that her birthday is about a week from now. She’ll be clocking twenty.

                        TRICIA’S  POV

    It’s been three days living with Sophie and it has been nice. We both prepared for work and went together.    We got to work and changed to our uniforms, soon we started serving.

    Soon, people stated looking at the back, something caught our attention. They were too guys and some body guards.
   OK. Let me check them out………..

                 TRICIA: CHAPTER 8

***************************
 
 TRICIA’S POV

 Ok… let me  check them out.  The first guy is really handsome, looks like some kind of a Greek god. He has a nice stature, he has a shiny curly hair. The other guy is also handsome but not as the greek god. The female workers are already drooling, i looked at Sophie she was just staring. Seems he has been here before.
  ” He is here, Richard Dominic” she whispered
 ” Who is he ?” i asked
“He is a cutie, one of the richest in the society, a well known businessman
   The superior told a waiter to go take their orders. The waiter took the note pad and walked up to them, took the orders and came back, she gave me the note. I took their orders and went to them.
“Here it is sir ” i said and dropped it on the table.
“Hey stop there” the other guy said.  I stopped, he came closer to me.
“Can i have your digits” he whispered not to get the attention of others .
” No sir ” i replied somehow annoyed
 “Why?
 “Because i don’t give my numbers to strangers” i replied sharply, rather rudely.  I felt him tightened his grip on me., he gradually caressed my arms. I know what he is about to do and i won’t hesitate to embarrass him. I don’t mind if he is rich, no one messes with me.
“I want you” he said still caressing my arm, i suddenly found him irritating.  I don’t know how my hands found it’s way to his face. I slapped him !!. My co workers and even his friend gasped. His guards ram towards me but he raised his hands signalling them to stop.
 “Don’t worry i will show you the stiff i am made of” he said and walked out.
 His buddy, Dominic came to me and said ” you really ate disrespectful, you can’t try that with me, you know ”  His friend came back to him and whispered something to him and he nodded. He then signalled his guards to bring me.  He brought me out of a restaurant to a corner. The guards made sure nobody came towards us. Immediately the guards released me, a slap landed on my cheeks, i tasted my own blood. He slapped me again, then another , by now i was already crying. He wanted to hot me again but his boss told him to stop.
 He came closer to me and said “I could had you with force, but my bestie asked me not to do that. And also you just lost your job, i already spoke to the manager.  Cut your cloth according to your size” he said and with that,  they entered the car and drove off.
 I just sat there crying. Sophi came to me and hugged me, then took me back inside.
************************************
    The manager sent for me. It can’t be what i am thinking. If it is it means i couldn’t keep the wolf from the door ( couldn’t prevent hunger ).I walked with a heavy heart. She was writing but dropped the pen when she saw me.
” You just embarrassed a very influential person ” she said
 ” “I am really sorry ma’am” i apologized
“Take this ” she said and handed me an envelope. When i opened it i saw some money.
” What is this for ma’am ?” i asked.
“Sorry miss, but your services are no longer needed here ” she said.
” But ma’am… i was about saying  but she cut me off.
“Those people you just embarrassed are the cream of the society. They were embarrassed by a commoner ” she said as tears already welled up in my eyes.

TRICIA: CHAPTER 9
******************************************

                    TRICIA’S POV

 “Stop that pleading face because that won’t help. Now out of my office” she said plainly.
I walked out of the office and the first person i saw was Ryan. He hugged me and  i told him i will no longer be coming to work, i sobbed in his arms.
“You don’t have to start crying you know ” he said smiling and i also smiled. These few days i have known him, he’s been good.
 ” Alright i should be going now” i said.  I  left and went home. So many things are on my mind now, i can’t wait for Sophie.

******************************************
 I got home and sat on the couch. I thought about my life.  So because they are wealthy, they expect everyone to be subject to them. Oh ! i almost forgot, tomorrow is my birthday. Hmm ! Happy birthday to me in advance. I smiled to myself and sleep took over
    A tap on my shoulders woke me up from my dreamless sleep. I looked up to see Sophie.
 ” You look really dull, brighten up”
” I ordered pizza, it will be here in no time, guess you are hungry” i nodded.
 ” Least i forget, tomorrow is my birthday “
“Awwn, happy birthday sis “
“Thanks” i said
Just then there was a knock on the door. I went to get it. It was the pizza, i took it and sat down on the couch to eat.
 There was another knock on the door this time, Sophie went for it. There stood a young man. He hugged her and pecked her
 ” Hey boyfriend, meet Tricia my bestie,  Tricia meet sam “
“Nice meeting you
“The pleasure is mine
 “See you later” she  said and winked at me. I just smiled.  And they went to her room.
“Oh.. How does it feels to have a boyfriend. Someone who will love and cherish you.  Lucia had a boyfriend then even as a teenager.

 I am kinda missing them even if they have been maltreating me, i still love them. If they ask for forgiveness anytime, i will forgive them wholeheartedly.
 I ate the pizza Sophie bought and drank some water. It’s late already, guess Sam is going to stay over night.
 I went t o my room and jumped on the bed. My mind drifted to that cute rude guy. I picked up my phone, i want to do some research on Richard Dominic.  I screwed down , he has malls, company etc. He is sticky rich.
 How can someone be perfect ? He has beauty, wealth and fame. But i scrolled down and something caught my attention. There it is written
” RICHARD DOMINIC, THE CITY’S PRIDE AND THE CREAM OF THE SOCIETY. HE IS STILL SINGLE “
 I scrolled down and saw peoples comment.
📱 He is a gay
📱Maybe is is a womanizer, that’s why he doesn’t have a partner .
 And so many other comments
 How can someone be this handsome and rich. They must be kidding.

                  TRICIA: CHAPTER  10

******************************************

     TRICIA’S POV

     I found myself smiling for some reasons i don’t know. Just imagine am his girlfriend …… Arrrgh Tricia how can you think of such ? i mentally slapped myself.   I’m just crying for the moon because that’s impossible. Moreover rich guys go for rich girls, i’m a nobody. I’m just spitting to the wind.

******************************************************
     I woke up the next morning and walked down the sitting room, there’s nobody there. Everywhere is quiet. I saw a paper on the table, it’s from Sophie.
 ” Happy birthday bestie. I don’t want to disturb you, i’m off to work, i’ll be back on time. There’s food in the kitchen “
 I walked back to my room, freshened up, and ate. Today’s going to be the most boring day of my life.
 I walked down to my room, took my phone. I saw two messages . I opened the first, a birthday wish from Fiona. Then the second was from an unknown number.

” Happy birthday angel. These few days i’ve spent with you have been the best in my life. You really are an angel sent to put smiles on peoples faces. I LOVE YOU ” From Ryan.

 Awwn, such sweet words, it’s really melting my heart. Wait! what kind of love ?  Ah… maybe it’s the one for a friend.

            RYAN’S.   POV
****************************************
      I really miss Tricia. Sophie came to work this morning, so i decided to ask after Tricia since they live together. I walked to her, she was standing close to the entrance with a note pad on her hand.
 “Hey
“Hi
“How’s Tricia, hope she’s fine
“Hmm, yeah she’s good. Actually, today’s her birthday
” Oh really, can i have her phone number  ?”
“Yeah, sure
I gave her my phone and she typed the number into it
“Thanks
“You’re welcome
   Tricia i’ve been thinking of you. Just can’t get you off my head. I really don’t know if it is love or infatuation.  I looked at my phone and stored the number ” My Angel”
 I sent a birthday wish to her this morning.
    Tricia’s just one kinda special girl. I love her free life style…
