The Task - by Bloggitup.


You know, when Bloggitup comments you read and don't want it to end. Once, after reading her epic comment I told her babes you need to write for the blog! Unknown to me she already had an archive of stories and posts, some of which I've been permitted to share with you. She writes with the name BBBsmiles and if I remember correctly, she's written a really nice piece for the blog before. 

If you've got posts, articles or stories you would like to share on the blog, you can send me a link or mail it to me; thelmathinks@gmail.com. 

For now, read and enjoy. 




Bella had just finished her presentation in the conference room at Broullak Holdings and was heading to the car park; where the driver was waiting to take her back to her office. The presentation had turned out better than she anticipated. She had gotten fillers that the CEO of Broullak Holdings was a very difficult man and extremely hard to please but he turned out to be the opposite; nodding at every word that came out of her mouth, making her feel like the professional she has always thought herself to be. She was happy after her presentation,she had gotten a message from the P.A scheduling a meeting with the CEO the next day to finalize and sign the letter of approval for the contract.
Bella was elated as she stood inside the elevator howling down to the ground floor. This was unbelievable, her boss was sure going to see her in a different light after hearing this.”me Bella, pulled a contract of N500million?hmnnnnnn”. She took in a breath of fresh air as she stepped into the hot sun to meet her driver but he was nowhere to be found. Bella dialed his number, it kept ringing with no response. she was just about asking the security guards if they saw her driver when she saw him running towards her like a man been pursued by a lion, he ran as though in a state of panic and confusion. For a second, Bella thought he had run mad but when he ran to her apologizing for keeping her in the sun she knew he was still sane. Bella simply waved him aside and got into the car.


The next day at Broullak Holdings,Bella made sure she looked the part as she was to be handed a letter of approval by the CEO of Broullak Holdings. She was nervous since she was going to be meeting with him one-on-one this time. She sat at the reception cross-legged, looking glam in her Victoria Beckham low neck  bodicon dress and  a pair of River Island red snakeskin pointed toe stiletto heeled shoes.she had stopped over at the beauty cook to get a face beat . She also made sure her nails were manicured and polished just in case the CEO decided to have quick photo session when handing her the cheque. She smiled at the thought of receiving the cheque and licked her lips as though she just tasted honey.

Whilst she waited to be called in, she brought out her phone and sent a text to her mum “hi mum, I’m still waiting o, the man seems to be taking his time but I will keep you updated once I’m done here. Pray I don’t disgrace myself cos I'm so excited“ she pressed the send button. Just as she was tucking her cell phone away in her bag, the P.A whom she had met once at the presentation called out.”Can I have Miss Bella Onikoyi come with me please”.  She quickly stood up and followed the sexy looking P.A who wore a very skimpy skirt not minding the tubers sprouting from her legs and a transparent blouse. Bella looked at her wondering how a P.A will dress looking as though going to a nite club. She shrugged off the thought and quickly brought herself back to reality. Since the CEO wasn't complaining,  the lady was probably very good at her job and got paid handsomely.

The walkway down to the CEO’s office looked like a gallery. Art work splattered on the walls; picture frames with all kinds of art displayed aesthetically. Bella almost stopped to appreciate a few but changed her mind as the P.A was already standing in front of the CEO’s door. She hastened her steps and was ushered into the office by the P.A. Bella had no idea how beautiful his office looked until she stepped in. The furniture in his office had a foreign look and she could bet her dinner they were all customized and imported to suit his taste. The CEO sure had a good taste for interior décor and Bella couldn't help but compliment his taste and style. He smiled and asked her to have a seat after dismissing his P.A.

Bella gave a wide grin as the CEO cleared this throat and adjusted his tie. He brought out a file from a tray on his mahogany table, opened it and started reading through as though he was just seeing the document for the first time. Out of anxiety, Bella almost snatched the document from him; say a quick “thank you sir we shall deliver. BYE! and then run out of the office with the cheque and letter of approval but it wasn't that easy.

She saw him scowl once and her heart skipped, was he planning on changing his mind? She prayed silently and thought to herself ‘what on earth is wrong with this man, why was he keeping her in suspense? “Give me the damn cheque” she spluttered before she could hold herself. The CEO looked at her inquiringly but she quickly feigned a cough to cover up what would have turned out to be a disaster. Finally the CEO looked up at her and smiled. “Miss Bella” she couldn't help but notice the way he caressed her name. “You see, he continued "I wasn't quite impressed with your presentation giving the fact that you studied public relations.You didn't wow me at all but I’m willing to help you if you are willing to help yourself since you must meet your target” 

Huh? Bella was gob smacked beyond words, what game was he trying to play? Here she was thinking she had blown them away with her magnificent presentation and was happy to learn afterwards that they were all impressed and would be awarding her company the contract. Bella felt like a tyre that had just been deflated as her heart sank within her. She looked at him feeling somewhat defeated. He saw that she was vulnerable,he smiled knowing he had an edge over her ”look here Bella ,this isn't difficult cos you know what to do.This contract is yours once you play ball".  At the mention of  ball, Bella smiled. She knew the game too well and was a pro at it; just that she didn't expect her contender to be the CEO of Broullak Holdings. 'oh! so“ball” is the game we are about to play right? she asked with emphasis on BALL. His eyes brightened up as he bent over and said to her” you are smart Miss Bella”. 

Bella stood up, walked over to where he was seated and whispered boldly into his ears “LET THE GAME BEGIN”

Stay tuned for Part 2.

  5. Blogittup ooooooo!!!!🙌🙌🙌

    That's twale for you but I'm sure it won't show! Looool! I want to know the kind of ball Bella would play ooooo!

    On another note, as a Christian, I've always told myself that there are standards I would never ever compromise on. But sometimes, you find yourself in a situation and you begin to question everything you believe in. It's easy to say if I was Bella, I wouldn't play the CEO's ball. Even if I lose my job in the process. But when so many things are riding on that one meeting and it feels like the defining moment of the rest of your life.... You ask yourself again... Would you compromise?

    Abeg blogittup don't keep us waiting ooooo! *kilzzes*

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
