"Knock ! Knock! Knock!"
"Hey Blue,how may I help you ?"
"Hey Madam Phoenix,I brought the documents you asked for . I would also like to inform you that the two ladies who just finished their Cooking and Baking classes just passed an interview at Deli Cakes bakery ! They will work under probation for one month ."
"Wow! That is great news, inform them that later in the evening I will treat them to dinner so that we can celebrate and congratulate them ."Madam Phoenix said those words while jumping up and down . One would think she had just won a jackpot.
Looking at her,I could not help but get curious,a twenty five year old lady with a five year old daughter,owns a bakery,a fitness center,a property management company...she owns so many business so let me just say she is well off but why on earth would someone like her at that age,decide to devote herself to helping young girls and boys who seem to have been neglected by the society or lost their way in life due to some mistakes or wrong decisions they had made.
I have met her daughter,but where is the father? Is she married or not? I have been her personal secretary for the past two years but I know nothing about her personal life. All I know is I just like the two ladies was a woman of the street untill she rescued me, helped me go back to college and gave me a job.
"You deserve a present too for working really hard . Blue! Blue! Blue! Blue! "
" Why are you just staring at me when I am talking to you?"
"Talking to me?"
"Yes you ! Who else would I talk to? It is just the two of us in this office! What is troubling you? Come,sit here an tell me what problem you have."
"No Madam,I'm fine thanks for the concern"
" Well ,tell me did you hear what I told you?"
"Yes? No? Which is which? You have to choose one it can not be both.!"
"I am sorry Madam I just zoned out for a moment"
" Tell me what you were thinking about then I will let it slide"
"Honestly Madam,I am just curious...why would you dedicate yourself to helping young girls and boys who seem to be neglected by the society yet some of them brought it upon themselves and others never change even after you try to help them to top it all,you gain nothing out of it !."
"Hahaha...you may think there is nothing in it for me but to me there is everything in it for me like helping them gives me a sense of satisfaction and although I know I can not help everyone just a little help to one person or two or three brings a positive change to the world."
Seeing that she did not mind my question,I decided to take the opportunity and satisfy my curiosity.
"So Madam was this your life time dream or what made you choose this path of life?"
"Aaah...l see you are trying to peep at my private life!"
"Well,mine is long story,let's go grab a cup of tea as I give you a slice of my life that is if you promise to keep it a secret."
