I smiled stretching my hand for a shake. “Good
morning. President Stephen”I said with a smile.
He was not saying a word or reply to my
greeting for a while. I withdrew my hand and
dipped it into my pocket. “Good morning
sir”Debbie greeted him smiling. He nodded his
head smiling back at her. “Good morning”he
replied. “Meet my friend Mr john”Debbie said
pointing to me. Her phone rang and she excused
herself to pick it.”person me”she said and left.
Immediately she left, Stephen took a step closer
to me. “Why are you here?”he asked. I laughed
at that question before I gave him reply. “Why do
you think am here at my father’s company? Oh
have you forgotten am the vice president of this
company?”I asked looking at him. He laughed out
loud although my reply was not funny. “Oh I see.
You chose to stay here. Good. Am loving this”he
said smiling. “So. Let’s be good to each other
from now on president Stephen”I said stretching
my hand for a shake. He shook my hand but with
a little squeeze. I looked at his face and smiled. I
released his hand. Just then, Debbie came back
holding her cell phone. “I’ll see you later. I have
to take care of something”she said and left.
Stephen was staring at her as she leaves.
“Seems like you guys are close”he said looking
at me. “Maybe you can ask her directly”I said
with a smile. I left him and went towards my
I was walking around on the eleventh floor,
leaving Mr handsome after he left to his office. I
disappeared and reappeared at a floor I don’t
know. I walked slowly looking around as people
walks to and fro the company. I got to a place
and saw some beautiful ladies dancing. On
seeing them, I went into the door looking at them
as they move. “Wow. I love that”I said moving
my head to the beat. As I continue looking at
them and moving my body, a memory flashed to
my head again.
Some girls were in group gossiping. The way
they dressed showed they just finished a dance
practice or were about starting. I saw myself
sitting beside a girl. She has a long fringe hair
while I had a short black hair tied in a ponytail.
The way both of us were sitting, it shows we
could be sisters or best friends.
I heard what those girls were saying but I
ignored them pretending I don’t.
“She’s so full of herself. I don’t know why Debbie
hang around with her. She’s just acting like her
dog or should I say handbag?”a girl said
laughing. They all laughed out loud.

“She’s not the only better one here. Why must
she be the only one all the time? We can
perform better too”another girl said.
I looked at the girl beside me and she smiled
inserting one air peace into my ear to stop me
from hearing those annoying voices. I smiled
back at her nodding my head.
This memory was clear to me. The girl sitting
beside me looks so familiar but the more I tried
to remember her, the more hard it is to do so.
That means I was a dancer when I was still
alive? But why are they gossiping about me?
Why do they envy me?”I thought to myself. I
walked around in the practice room looking at
the girls as they moved.
“Jenny stop!”I heard the choreographer’s voice
and I turned around looking at them.
“Ooh. Not again. Why’s she getting it wrong
again?”the remaining girls started complaining
looking at her badly. The choreographer walked
to a girl. She’ll be the same age as I. She has a
brown skin which made her look more beautiful.
But her expression was bad when the
choreographer got to her. “This is the sixth time
you’ll make the same mistake. If you do it one
more time, you’re out”she said looking at her.
“Am sorry ma”she said in a weak tone. She went
back to the front and they started from a point. I
was staring at the girl as she moved. She dance
well but her moves were a bit slow. When they
got to a stage, she made mistake again. “Oh
why?”I said looking at her. “Jenny out. Meet me
after practice”the choreographer said. She
walked slowly out of the line and went to sit at
the back of the practice room a little far from
them. I could see how some girls reacted when
she left. “Bad girls everywhere”I said looking at
I walked to where the girl was sitting. She took
off the Snickers she was putting on and drank
from a bottle beside her. She placed it down and
looked up to where I was standing. She has this
surprised and scared expression when she looked
up at me. She closed her eyes and started
reciting something. I was confused at her
reaction. “Hey!”I called. She dipped her hand into
her pocket and brought out a chain which looks
like a rosary. She continue reciting it with her
eyes closed. I tried to touch her but a force
pushed me back. I staggered back with a force
which almost land me on the floor.
She opened her eyes staring at me while
