“Where is that useless son of yours?” I heard my dad’s voice reverberate through the thick walls of the house, jolting me out of my sleep.
With the speed of light, I scrambled out of bed, putting on my underwear and went to wake the lady beside me. How could she be sleeping like the dead with so much noise. I hurriedly tapped her to get up and get out of my room before my dad got in here. I didn’t even know her name, I just brought her home and had a wild night with her yesterday in my drunken haze.
“Hey, you!” I hissed in irritation. She opened her eyes and smiled at me, totally misreading the situation, without eating anytime, I picked her underwear from the ground and threw them at her.
“Get dressed and leave here now!” I ordered through clenched teeth.
Thankfully she didn’t waste any time with baseless arguments or complaints and just obeyed my instructions. She had barely only put on her too when my dad barged into the room.
“You good for nothing imbecile!” his eyes were almost popping out of his head as the veins all over his face protruded. “Do you really have no shame left?” The girl in my room scrambled to gather the rest of her clothes and fled the room with the clothes in her hand.
Good for her, if only I could do same.
“Good morning dad” I greeted as he scrutinized me with disgust written all over his face. I stood there like a twelve years old, waiting to be grounded.
“I will be forced to hit you with this if you say that to me again” he shouted pointing his walking stick at me. “what is wrong with you. I have seen that there is truly no redemption for you, I gave you several chance to prove yourself to me but you have failed yet again and this time, you cost the company millions!”
What! No, no, no!
My eyes bulged as I remembered that I had a meeting scheduled for this morning with some Asian investors. I began scattering the bed in search of my phone, why didn’t my secretary fucking call me? I found the phone.
Four missed calls.
“God! I’m really sorry dad! I can still make it in time for the meeting”
