Theme: Job Hunt
HUMAN WORLD
TWO MONTHS LATER
JAMES’S APARTMENT
It was on Sunday evening and not much doing. They had dinner around 6:30pm. James,Ephyra and Gideon sat around the table filled with Stacks of Advert Papers. Ephyra was used to the Human world. Being a fast learner and desperate to know things about her new world, she was able to learn what normal humans could do with the help of James ams Gideon. Even though she was happy and satisfied in the new world,the MERWORLD had still popped into her thought again and again. She liked her new Life and World and she has a good body. And she was forced to ask if her body was the same as that of a 18 years old Human. Gideon had replied her,he said she does not look like any of his high school seniors. Then Ephyra realized that the 18 years old mermaid was trapped in the body of a 26 years old Human. And she enjoyed the fact that she was not treated as a kid or the 18 years old baby sister she was in the MERWORLD. Instead she was an Adult in the Human world. A 26 years old Woman,old enough to make decisions on her own without any interference. And she had no idea how to thank James and Gideon for making her a real and complete human.
“I don’t want you to work in a bar or clubhouse”
James frowned at the paper in his hands
“Why? Is there something wrong working in any of those places?”
James looked up at her
“You can’t understand” he muttered
“Oh! You don’t know?!” Gideon asked
“I don’t know the reason but if the pay is good then I will go for it. I just want to earn money so I can help in paying the bills”
“Ephyra I don’t have any problem paying the bills”
“Then I can take care of our feeding when I start work”
“No..I’m not complaining -”
“But I don’t like the fact that you are the only one doing everything for us”
James stared at her
“Gideon is there something wrong in wanting to help him?”
“No..but -” he stopped and bit his lower lips
“I won’t advice you to work in such places”
Gideon completed
“Why?”
“You look too innocent to work in a clubhouse or bar.. Or let me just say that you are too beautiful to work there and it really dangerous for a woman like you”
“Why? Is it that bad?” She questioned frantically
He nodded
“Men won’t let you rest..they can harm you”
“I am old enough to protect myself” Ephyra replied
She balled her fists as if she wanted to throw bad punches at someone.
They rolled in laughter. Too much watching of wrestling,boxing and America movie stunts has thought her few fighting skills. Ephyra was sure she could take down any man with the help of her super strength. That was the only power she possessed in the Human world. It seemed strange at first because she didn’t exhibit such ability in the MERWORLD.
“Not in this World..Beautiful Women are not safe in Clubhouses and Bars” James said
“Then I am not beautiful -”
“You are beautiful Miss Ephyra Adams” Gideon said
He leaned forward on the table and placed his hand on her shoulder.
“And I suggest you try modelling. It would suit you better than working in those places. You have the qualities.. Trust me I see you becoming Miss World”
He said with a serious face. Ephyra frowned and said
“Me?! Miss World?!”
She shook her head.
“No”
She wondered if it was possible for a mermaid like her to become a Model not to talk of becoming Miss World. And she was not ready to ask them about it because they might think she’s crazy again
“No she can’t -” James objected before Ephyra could say anything
His voice stunned her out of thought
“What did you say?” She asked
“You can’t become a model”
“Why?” She asked
“You can’t because -” his voice
He thought of what to say
“I think my brother likes you” Gideon blurted before James could utter any word
James glared at him
“I like him..I mean I like you too. And we all like each other like a family”
Gideon exchanged glances with James
Ephyra didn’t understand Gideon’s statement. And she couldn’t tell where he was driving at.
“I didn’t mean that.. Sort of likeness”
Gideon was interrupted by a growl from James
“So what sort of likeness?” She asked
“Never mind”
Gideon focused his attention on the paper in his hands.
“Well James it seems you don’t want me to work. It really boring staying at home alone all day. I want to work like a Human”
“Ephyra I’m not asking you not to work”
“Then why do you keep saying I can’t do this and I can’t do that”
“Well I suggest you go into tutoring”
“Tutoring?”
“Yes Gideon can tell his friends to sign up for extra classes after school and during weekends. The classes can take place right here” James suggested
“No I am not doing that. I don’t want to be with school kids”
“And I object to the suggestion bro. I can’t bring my naughty classmates to our home”
“Then let’s keep checking” James said after he realized there was no way he could win against these two.
Seconds clicked by and Ephyra screamed, sending papers flying around the room and startling her family.
“I found it!”
“What?”
“A job”
Gideon touched his chest
“You startled me”
“Sorry” she apologized in a low tone
“Let me have it” James said
She gave him the sheet
“Here” she tried to point
“Got it”
“GOLDMYNES MODELLING AGENCY. AUDITION TO BE HELD AT THE AGENCY ON 29TH OCTOBER”
James read loudly
“No..not that one. There’s a job vacancy on the left side -” she said
“WORKERS NEEDED AT GOLDMYNES”
“They put up two adverts under the same company” Gideon said
“What is Goldmynes?”
She asked
“Never mind”
She picked her phone and pressed the screen and went to Google. A tiny blue microphone appeared on the Google page. She tapped on it and said
“Google give me details about Goldmynes company in USA”
And it answered with a beep. It showed an article and series of pictures
“Goldmynes is one of the most successful company in USA. It is owned by Late Mr James Jones” she read out loudly from the phone
“Mrs Isobel Jones took over the company after her husband’s death in a plane crash”
She felt pity for Isobel and she looked at her family
“Have you guys read it before?” She asked when she noticed they weren’t paying attention to her.
James was lost in thought
“We know about it. Everyone know about Goldmynes” Gideon replied
“Well I need to know about it too” she said
Gideon responded with a shrug
“She is one of the most influential women in USA. And her only son Harry Jones next in line to take over Goldmynes company. He is currently the CEO of Goldmynes Modelling agency” she scrolled down to see more images.
She saw Isobel and Harry pictures.. Mostly Harry’s pictures.
“Wow! He’s so cute!” She exclaimed
“You don’t remember him?” James asked
“Huh?”
She smiled broadly
“I haven’t met him before -” she replied
He nodded
“Wow! He’s even a model..an international and top most Model in USA. Gideon.. he looks like that guy’s picture in your room”
“He’s the one” Gideon replied
“I know those facts about him. Everyone knows him very well except you” He said again
“Yeah I don’t know him” she responded
“So which one do you want to go for?” James asked
“I will opt in for the workers vacancy. I don’t want to be a Model”
“Why?” Gideon asked
“I don’t want to go around in tight dresses that will make me look like a grilled fish”
They rolled into laughter
“James do you have any idea of the type of work I would do at this company? They didn’t specify it here”
“Uhmm..I don’t know..but probably a secretary”
“Secretary? I don’t have any qualification. No I don’t remember anything about myself” she said in a low tone
“We already planned to work on it”
“Yes I know”
“Then maybe..a Janitor or delivery girl or errand girl..they don’t require any qualification in some companies” Gideon said
“It better than working in a clubhouse or bar right?”
She asked
They nodded in unison
“So what do I do now?”
“Call the advert agency. I’m sure they will link us up”
James answered
“Okay”
He picked up his phone and dialed the number attached to the advert. A man picked on the other end.
“Good Evening Sir. I am James Albert”
“Good Evening Mr Albert”
“Actually I saw this advert just now that Goldmynes need workers”
“Okay..are you the one applying for the job?” The man asked
“No my friend” he replied
“Is your friend a female or a male?”
“Female”
“Good..exactly what they need”
“Can I at least know what job she would be doing at the company?”
“Well I can’t disclose that until you fill the application form”
“And how so we get that done?”
“I will send a link to you now. You click in it and fill in her profile”
“So what happens after that?”
“They might select her for an interview with the Chairlady”
“Okay…Thanks” he hangs up
“Ephyra -” he was interrupted by a beep on his phone. The man forwarded the link to him.
“Did I get the job?” She asked with a broad smile
“No..not yet”
Her smile dropped
“We have to do some certain things before you can get the job”
“Like what?”
“Going for an interview”
“Interview?” She panicked
“Don’t be scared Miss you will get the job” Gideon said
“How can you say that when I have no idea what to say?”
“You’re smart.. and I’m sure you will pass whatever test they will give you especially if it an IQ test”
“Stop the flattery” she said
James Yawned
“Keep quiet Gideon I need to concentrate please” He said
“Okay Bro…I guess we won’t be needing these papers anymore”

GOLDMYNES COMPANY
ISOBEL’S OFFICE
Isobel couldn’t take her eyes off the document on her desk. She leaned forward to look at the Resume on it. No doubt Harry won’t object to this – And I’m sure he will convince her to work for him or even be a Model at his agency.
Isobel thought deeply. She was stunned out of thought when she heard a sharp knock on the door.
“Come in” Isobel said
Her secretary walked in
“Ma’am a young woman is here to see you” Tracy said
“What’s her name?”
“She said Ephyra -”
“Ephyra Adams” Isobel completed
“Yes Ma’am”
A smile formed on Isobel’s lips. She couldn’t wait to see Ephyra.
“Please let her in”
“Okay Ma’am”
Tracy exited the room
Ephyra stepped in
“Good Morning Ma’am”
“Oh! Good Morning”
Isobel greeted cheerfully
“I am here for an interview”
“Please take a seat”
Isobel stared at Ephyra for seconds. Different thoughts flooded her mind. She was extremely stunned by Ephyra’s beauty.
“Ephyra Adams” she said
Isobel picked the Resume on her desk.
“You are 26”
“Yes Ma’am” Isobel read out information about her.
“Perhaps have you worked as a care worked before?”
“No Ma’am”
“Maid?”
Ephyra raised her brows
“No”
Isobel dropped the file and looked at Ephyra with a serious face. Ephyra’s heartbeat accelerated
“I..I don’t have too much working experience.. But Trust Me I can do anything because I am a very hardworking woman” Ephyra said
Isobel relaxed
“Then let’s talk business. I mean let’s put the interview aside”
“What do you mean Ma?’
“I will tell you what the work is all about”
“Okay”
“I want to hire you to work for my son”
“Your Son? That’s a great privilege” Ephyra said with a half smile. She was still nervous because of the serious look on Isobel’s face.
“Yes it is but most people I have hired don’t know that”
“So do I have to work as his Secretary?”
“No”
“Driver or errand and delivery girl?”
“None of that My Dear”
Ephyra shot Her a confused look
“Then what?”
Isobel cleared her throat
“18 years ago I accused my husband of having an affair with an employee. And our argument led him to travel out of the country. My Son and I awaited his return but we only heard the news of his death. I lost my dear husband in a plane crash. I felt guilty after I found out my husband was loyal. He didn’t have an affair with his secretary. And my son blamed me for his father’s death. We’ve been apart for years now and He doesn’t regard me as his mother” she stopped
“My son stopped believing in love after his father’s death. He felt like if I could accuse the one I love till death and also accuse his father unjustly then love never existed between us. He said I never loved my husband dearly”
“So what do you want me to do for you?”
“I need your help. I need someone who can change mg son’s outlook and make him believe in love”
“No I don’t think I can help you”
Ephyra felt Isobel was asking her to make her son fall in love.
“No from where I’m sitting,I am looking at someone with a brain and beauty. A woman who knows how to go for a jugular. A woman who is definitely my son’s type. A tall,leggy,beautiful woman. And I know you’ve got the extra something that can make the difference”
Isobel studied her expression. She took in Ephyra’s features. She was beautiful. Her hair straight and long in a single braid that ended down her back. She wore no make up and her very sharp chin was cute. Ephyra tended to wear what she had,simple gray woollen dress,long sleeved and tight around her hips with Sandals. Without warning Isobel was out of her chair.
“Look you’re what is going to make this happen” her hands rested iyn Ephyra’s shoulder
“I have hired so many women to work for him. Everyone tried everything but gotten nowhere. He is like a cemented wall and he is tough. And I got to thinking that my son has to have a weakness. Something that will get him and make him change his mind. And from everything I think his weakness must be an extremely beautiful woman like you with a goof heart”
“I am not sure about that. And I don’t think am the right person for the job”
“You Also know I’m right”
Isobel said right from behind her. Ephyra never considered herself beautiful. Since she found herself in the Human world,everything about her changed. No more Brunette Hair but straight and long brown hair. She had a sharp chin,flat stomach, long legs,breast that were big enough to make any man look twice,eyes with long thick lashes and full lips. One things didn’t change which is her Vibrant Aquamarine Eyes!
And she had seen beautiful Humans. Women that are pretty! So No! She can’t be Harry’s type no matter Isobel’s words. She thought deeply.
Ephyra stood up from the chair
“I’m not the right person for your son” she said meeting Isobel’s gaze with a Frown
“No make up,no implants,no false lashes. I am too thin,too tall I guess and too pale and I’ve got strange eyes too”
Isobel frowned at her
“You have to stop scowling like that and put on a bit make up with maybe your hair loose with those eyes. Even without makeup you’d stop traffic”
Ephyra nodded impatiently
“Please help me – I can tell that my son’s hurting. Work for me and help Harry out of that lonely shell”
She squeezed Ephyra’s hands gently
“Please” she pleaded
Then the thought of her mother flooded her mind. Images of when Tethys was begging her to stay flashed through her mind. She saw the pain in Isobel’s expression.
“What do I have to do?” She asked in a low tone
“You’ll be like his personal assistant but you have to move into his house”
“What?! Why..why do I have to live with him?”
“By so doing you will be able to get close to him and talk to him”
“Then it’s like I’m going to work as his maid too”
“Not really -” she paused
“Yes..Harry lives alone by the beach. And it worries me that he’s Far away from home. I just want to know if he’s doing fine -”
“How old is he?”
“26”
“He’s not a kid anymore”
“I know Ephyra… Please just accept the job and help Me renew the bond between me and my son” Isobel begged
“I’m sorry..I can’t”
She knew James wouldn’t like the idea of moving into her boss house.
“Why?”
“Nothing” she replied with a shrug
Ephyra motioned towards the door
“$1000 if you last a week in his house”
Ephyra stopped at the door
“And I know you can do this Ephyra”
She twisted around to face Isobel.
“Ephyra.. Its a challenge”
Isobel was determined to convince Ephyra to work for her!
Familiar tingle of excitement starting to grown in her at the challenge of getting Harry to talk when no one else could and even let him know about love.
“I’m not doing this for the money” Ephyra said.
She had seen Isobel’s pain and she was also ready to do anything to have her old son back. And Ephyra felt Harry needs to forgive his mother and learn to love.
She went back to Isobel’s desk.
“We can sign a contract”
Oh! She was serous about the Money! Isobel reached for a folder and held it out to her.
“Here”
Ephyra took it from her. It was a thick Manila folder with “Goldmynes” in bold type in the right edge. She opened the cover and shuffle through the document.
“This won’t be easy” she muttered
“Sorry if it were that easy someone would have done the job for me”
Ephyra nodded in agreement
“But there has to be a way to make him stick his head out of the bunker”
“Getting him to talk and making him see that James death wasn’t my fault and intention is your main job”
“Okay”
“And you can as well use what you have to get what you want”
Ephyra raised her brow. She couldn’t make sense of Isobel’s last statement.
“There’s a bonus attached to the job”
“Bonus?”
“I will pay you if you survive one week with him. And I will pay double of it after two weeks. And you also get the chance to shop at Gold Mall without paying for the items”
“I get all of that?”
“Yes But under one condition”
“What condition?”
“That’s if i see some changes. All I want is to be a mother to my son and see him smile again”
Isobel nodded
She was offering too much. Ephyra thought
She didn’t want to do the job because of the money but she remembered that she was indebted to James. She could use the money to repay James for saving her life and taking her in. That was the main reason she wanted to work.
“And you also get paid at the end of the month. Ephyra I will reward you greatly If things changes”
Then she thought of what she would do with all the money. Gideon’s tuition,bills and probably go on a vacation with her family if she works for a month or two.
“Do you have family?”
“Yes..perhaps can I go and see my family in the process of working with your son”
“Yes after I see changes. And you don’t have to give in now. I can give you sometime to think about it”
“What do I have to do?”
Are you accepting now?”
“Yes but you have to give me a day or two to talk to my family..and spend time with them”
“Okay”
“So when should I start?”
“You have to move in with him”
“Will he let me in?”
“That’s part of your job”
“Okay..I’ll try my nest”
She collected the pen from Isobel and signed the document. And Isobel did the same too.
“Is that all?”
“For now that’s all”
Ephyra stood up
“I’ll take my leave now”
“Thank You”
Isobel shook hands with Ephyra
“It nice meeting you Ephyra”
“Likewise”
Isobel gave her a card
“Call me whenever you are ready”
“Okay” Ephyra said
She walked out of the office
“It’s going to work this time. And I can’t wait to have my son back” Isobel said
She silently prayed over and over again that Ephyra would be able to move Harry’s heart.

HUMAN WORLD
JAMES’S APARTMENT
“How was the interview?”
James settled down beside Ephyra on the couch after giving her a glass of apple juice.
“Hmm..fine” she said coldly
She didn’t know how to tell James about it
“Is something wrong?”
“No..why?”
“You sounded cold”
“The interview went well James and I got the job”
“That’s good news”
“Yeah”
“So tell me about the job”
“Like you know I met with Goldmynes Chairlady”
He nodded
“And Mrs Isobel want me to be Harry’s personal Assistant”
“Sounds Good” James said with a half smile
“Are you sure you want to take the job?” James asked as he rubbed his palms together
“Yes..but James that’s not all about the Job” she said
“So what else?”
“As..Harry’s PA I have to move in with him”
“What?!” His jaw dropped slightly and his gaze met hers.
And Ephyra studied his expression.
James stood up
“What kind of job is that?”
Ephyra stood up and went to him
“Listen to me James..I won’t stay with him for too long. I just want to help Mrs Isobel”
She explained to him
“Her family problem is none of your business. Isobel should find a way to settle with her son. And why did you sign that document?”
“I -”
“You signed it because of the money right? Do you even know who Harry Jones is?”
“I don’t know” she replied sincerely
“Fine…Ephyra you are not taking that Job”
“James I need to work. I don’t want to be a burden to you. I -”
He went to her and cupped her face in his hands
“You are not a burden to me. And remember you have to regain your memory -” he rested his forehead on hers
“I’m fine James”
“I can’t allow you live with someone you barely know”
“Please James -”
“We can get another job”
He said
“Or You will enrol in a college for now”
“No James” she pulled back
That was his way of stopping her from taking the job.
“Why do you insist on taking this job?”
“Look James..you took me in without knowing me, same thing applies to me working for Harry”
“It was different. You don’t remember anything about yourself”
“No you barely knew who I was back then but you helped me. I don’t know Harry Jones but I’m ready to work for him. It all about taking the risk -”
“Risk?..No I can’t allow you take such risk. You are not doing this Ephyra”
“I already signed the document and I am resuming work on Wednesday”
“Wednesday? You even agreed without consulting me? Without bothering to talk to me about it first”
“I’m sorry”
He cursed under his breathe
“Damn it Ephyra!”
He stormed out of the house. Ephyra felt sad. She sank onto the couch slowly. She did not like the fact that James was mad at her.

FIVE HOURS LATER
She lay on the couch waiting for James. Ephyra was worried about him. The door clicked and Ephyra stood up. It was Gideon.
“Hi Miss World” Gideon greeted
“Welcome Gideon” she lay back on the couch. Gideon noticed her tone was different.
“What’s wrong?”
“Nothing” Her answer was immediate
“Where is James?”
“He stepped out five hours ago”
“To where?”
She sat up again
“I don’t know”
“Something is wrong. So tell me what happened”
“James and I had an argument earlier”
“About what?”
“The job”
“Yeah how was it?”
“Good..and I got the job”
“I knew it”
“I have to work as Harry’s PA”
“Wow! That’s awesome!”
“Yeah..but the thing is I have to move in with him”
Gideon smile disappeared immediately.
“Why?”
“I need to help Mrs Isobel convince her son that her husband’s death was not her intention” She explained
“So James was mad at you for accepting the job?”
“Yeah”
“My brother is scared of losing you”
“Scared of losing me? What do you mean?”
He didn’t respond
“Gideon I’m not leaving forever. I will always come around as soon as Madam Isobel sees change in her Son..and I can do the same whenever I’m less busy at work for the main time”
“It seems you don’t understand James. And I’m not in the best position to tell you anything. But don’t worry I will talk to him”
“Thank You Gideon”
The door clicked again and James stepped in.
“James -” she stood and went to him. He tucked his hands into his pocket and walked towards his bedroom. Ephyra followed him.
“Can we talk?” She asked but he didn’t respond
“You know it fine if you don’t want me to take the job -”
He slammed the bedroom door at her face which interrupted her words. She stood outside for seconds. She had no idea why James was acting differently. Ephyra turned and saw Gideon staring at her.
“Don’t worry I will talk to him” He said
She nodded and walked Into her room.

JAMES’S BEDROOM
Gideon walked into the room. James was staring out the window.
“Hello Bro” Gideon greeted
James didn’t respond. Gideon dropped his school bag in the wardrobe and dashed off Into the bathroom to take a quick shower. James sat on the bed rubbing his palms together anxiously. Gideon knew his brother was disturbed by Ephyra’s new job.
“Can we talk?” Gideon asked
“I want to be alone” James replied
And Gideon said after a long pause.
“I think you went too hard on Ephyra. I mean when she tried to talk to you earlier..you ignored her and now she is sad” Gideon said in a low tone. James met his gaze.
“I’m sorry Gideon.. I don’t know what came over me to act like that” Gideon said
He went closer to James and sat beside him on the bed.
“I know how you feel for her”James frowned at him
“What do you mean?”
“Come on bro…I know you are in love with her and you are scared of losing her”
“That’s not true”
“Then why won’t you let her take the job”
“She’s still getting better”
“No she’s fine now…I know what’s going on in your mind. You don’t want to confess your feelings to her because you are thinking it would change your relationship with her and at the same time you don’t want her to work so you won’t lose her to another man like how you lost your Ex” Gideon stopped
“You know too much than your age kiddy” James said
“Am I right?”
“Yes Gideon”
“Miss Ephyra want to work so that she can help you”
“I don’t want her to repay me for anything. You know our inheritance is more than enough for us even if I decide not to work for years”
“Yes I know but you should let her do whatever she wants”
“I’m just concerned about her moving in with Harry Jones. I don’t trust that guy,someone who doesn’t have any regard for his biological mother then how is he going to respect a lady who will be a personal assistant at work and maid at home…but Ephyra doesn’t understand. Gideon you might think am selfish because I want to keep her around me but this is beyond that or my feeling for her”
“Why don’t you just put her interest first?”
“Then what if she falls in love with Harry Jones?”
Gideon was silent
“If she ends up falling in love with Harry then I have to let her go again..just like what I did with the other women in my life” James replied in a tight whisper. Gideon placed his hand on James lap and pats him gently.
“Hey bro if Ephyra is the woman for you then no one will take her away. If you guys are meant to be together,even Harry Jones won’t be able to take her away” Gideon responded
They lapsed into silence. Gideon was aware that James has been through many breakups in the past. The women he loved and dated, somehow they ended up dumping him. His last girlfriend complained that he was too busy with work and he never had time for her,so she cheated on him and broke up with him the day James found out she was cheating on him. Then he decided to remain single till he finds a woman who would make him fall in love again. A woman who will love him,Gideon and understand the nature of his work and also be loyal to him. Then Ephyra came Into the picture and he found himself falling in love with her while he was teaching her things Humans could do. James couldn’t confess his feeling simply because…he didn’t want Ephyra to think he was taking advantage of the fact that he helped her. He clearly knew that Ephyra doesn’t love him. She liked him as a helper and sees him as a family.
“She might end up running away from you if you don’t let her work” Gideon said after a long momentary pause.
“I won’t let that happen…but..i keep having this feeling that sooner or later Ephyra would end up leaving us someday”
“What are you thinking?”
“It just a feeling.. Or maybe my instinct” He smiled at Gideon
“So will you let her?”
“I have no choice Bro”

*****
*****
Ephyra rolled on her bed when she heard a soft knock on the door. She looked at the time on the alarm 6:30am. Then she hopped out of bed and wore her soft slippers.
“Good Morning Ephyra” James greeted when she opened the door
“Good morning” Ephyra replied
“Can we talk?” He asked
She nodded
“Come in”
James stepped in
“I’ve decided that I would call Isobel and turndown the job”
She said before he could say anything.
“Look James am not going to do anything you do not support” He tucked his hands in his pocket.
“What about you?” he asked
“I’ll be fine” she answered
“So you want to turn down Isobel’s offer because of me?”
“I’m willing to James. I don’t want you to be mad at me or us fighting because of a Mere job. I value our relationship than the Job. And you are right Mrs Isobel Family’s problem is none of my business. So let’s leave it that way”
James stared at her.
“And I will stay at home too if you don’t want me to work. It okay by me because with that I can do more cleaning and our laundry”
She sighed out loud. Ephyra went to him.
“Don’t worry I won’t take the Job” she said
And she was almost leaving to the bathroom when James said
“You can take the job”
She turned to face him
“Ephyra don’t turn Mrs Isobel’s offer down”
She walked back to him
“I thought you said -”
“I changed my mind” he interrupted her statement
Ephyra studied him. His expression was serious
“Are you Sure James?” She asked
James covered the inch left between them
“I know you want to do this” he whispered
“And I don’t want you to think I’m caging you around here” he brushed strands of hair from her face.
“I’m sorry for how I acted yesterday” He apologized
She nodded
“I want you to work and earn your own money” he added
Ephyra almost burst of happiness. She was happy,so she hugged him tightly. Ephyra swept him off His feet and swirled him.
James was shocked
She didn’t even realize it until she was dropped him.
“Sorry..I..I..” She stuttered
She had forgotten she has super strength
“How..how did you manage to lift me like I weigh nothing?” He asked in a surprised tone
“I..I don’t know -” she lied
“Thank You James” she placed a kiss on his cheek quickly
“I’m leaving to work now. Pack your things so I can drop you at Goldmynes before heading to work tomorrow”
“Okay”
“Take care” he leaned in and placed a kiss on her forehead.
“Have a nice day at work” she followed him to the living room
“Call me if you need anything”
He said and she gave him a nod.
“Let’s go Gideon”. James said
“Get back on time so we can hang out later in the day”
“I’ll try” he replied
“See you later Miss Ephyra” Gideon waved
“Bye Gideon”
She tried to stop the scream that welled up in her throat by placing her hands on her mouth. If she screamed right there James would come rushing inside like something bad had happened to her.
She was extremely happy that James agreed to let her work!
Ephyra looked down at her wrist when she felt the power around it. The bracelet glowed and she rushed to her room and locked the door. She saw her reflection in the Mirror. Her eyes glowed brightly.
“What’s wrong with you Neifion?!” She asked the bracelet.
The Energy increased and she felt power within her system. Then she went to her bed and lifted it up like a piece of paper. She did it with heavy objects she could find,lifting them like they didn’t weigh anything. She got tired and waited for the bracelet to stop glowing but it didn’t. She wished it would just come off from her wrist.
“Neifion will stop glowing… I need to take a shower” She said to the bracelet in a tight whisper
And the light faded slowly
She sighed with relief
“Thank goodness… You have to listen to me when I talk. And don’t glow when I’m with any human”
She came out of her clothe and went Into the bathroom.

Episode 11
Theme: Buried in the snow
WEDNESDAY EVENING
HARRY’S BEACH HOUSE
Ephyra pressed the doorbell for the 15th time but got no response. She went to Goldmynes to ask for Harry’s address but Isobel asked her to stay around with her for a while..showing her pictures of Harry when he was little,his college days and his images as model. And when it was time Isobel ordered her driver to take Ephyra to Harry’s house.
“Well…maybe he doesn’t want me to come in..but Mrs Isobel said he can see anyone out here from inside his apartment” Ephyra said to herself
“I’m not leaving this place until he open up – but I can’t stay out here for too long because it would snow soon”
She gripped her coat tightly
“He should better open up or else I will have to bring down this door”
She kicked the door
“Ouch!” She yelped in pain
“Maybe…a proper introduction would do”
She cleared her throat and focused on the small device connected to the intercom inside.
“Hello Mr Harry Jones,I am Ephyra Adams. Your new PA and Maid. I will do a good job at taking care of you. So please open up so I can start work..Thank You”
She wanted to bow but unfortunately for her,she hit her head on the device.
“Argg!!” She rubbed it
“This is so annoying! Why won’t he open up after introduction!” Then she wanted to kick the door but she stopped.
Her phone buzzed. An incoming call from Isobel.
“Hello Ma’am”
“Yeah..Ephyra have you met Harry?”
“No I have pressed the doorbell but no response. I don’t think -”
“Do you want to give up?”
“No I don’t think he’s at home…. but I’ll wait for him”
“Okay I called his office and his secretary said he didn’t show up at work today”
“Maybe you should try calling him”
“He’s not picking up his calls”
She heard a car horn nearby.
“I think he’s here”
“Let’s talk later” Isobel said
Ephyra took few steps and she saw a car driving into the private driveway In Harry’s home. Her heartbeat accelerated when Harry came out of the car. And she did her best to put the brightest smile on her face. Harry noticed the Lady standing on his porch with a big box. Her back view didn’t looked like Eleanor or Shawna and she was on phone. His jaw dropped slightly when Ephyra turned to look at him.
“Psycho lady?” He muttered
Harry recognized her immediately. Ephyra waved at him as she waited for him to join her. His heart skipped beat as he took in her features. He admitted that she did look wonderful tonight. Better than the lady he’d met months ago. Her brown hair was carefree and cute. She opted in for a pair of blue knee length gown with a black woolen coat on it and a stiletto heels. He walked closer to his front door.
Harry was surprised to see her there. And he thought he was imagining things again. Over two months away,he’d tried to convince himself to forget about her but it was easier said than done. She had popped into his thought over and over again when he was busy at work. Harry had visited the same spot she had bumped into him that night but it seems they’d never reconnect. He had no idea why her image had flooded his mind when Shawna asked if he was in love. Was he in love with the woman? The psycho lady he barely knew. The psycho lady images always finds it way to his mind’s eye. It was hard to figure out why he couldn’t stop thinking about her. He stared at her and couldn’t take his eyes off her. Her aquamarine eyes with long thick lashes which had left him mesmerized the moment he’d looked into them that night. He wondered what she was doing at his front door with a box. She looked different! And he would have doubted it if he had seen her from a far distance. Ephyra had put extra effort into her hair and adding rogue to her cheeks. And he felt like reaching out to her and pulling her into his arms. But he wouldn’t do that.
“Good Evening Sir, I am -”
“What do we have here?” He asked with a frown
“Do I have a delivery? Oh! You can bring the papers so I can sign them”
Ephyra shot him a confused look. Harry clenched his fists to suppress the urge to touching her.
“Uhmm..” She cleared her throat
“I am not here to deliver anything” she pulled her box closer
“This is my personal box”
Harry tucked his hands into his pocket.
“Did you miss your way? And you need me to help you find your way back to your home?” Harry asked
“No I am your new PA and Maid” she replied
Her forehead creased
He couldn’t believe his ears
“Mrs Isobel Jones hired me to help you”
Unbelievable! He almost burst of happiness! She was his maid now!
Wait…I don’t like Anyone staying with me. He thought deeply. Then Harry hang tough. A part of him wanted to invite her in but the other part disagreed.
“Who is she?”
“Who?”
“The woman who hired you”
“She is your mother”
“I don’t have a mother and I don’t need a PA or a maid. So I guess you are in the wrong place”
That’s a lie! He knew she was in the right place.
“Can’t you do something else aside working as a maid” he muttered As he moved to the door.
“Pardon?”
Ephyra heard what he said
He turned to face her.
“Can you do me a favour?”
“At your service Sir”
He covered the gap between them and expected Ephyra to step backward like most women would do but she didn’t. Ephyra stared back at him. And he wondered if she knew they had met once.
“How much did she pay you?”
“Who?”
“Old lady”
“Who is old lady?”
“Isobel Jones”
“Your mother?”
“She’s not my mother”
“And why are you denying your mother?” she met his gaze and Harry looked away
“How much did she offered for you to agree to work for her?”
“That’s between your mother and I”
“Tell me.. I’m Willing to pay more right now”
“Why?”
“I don’t need anyone around here”
“Why?”
“I like being alone”
She folded her arms
“How much do you have?” She asked
“Pardon?’
“can you pay me $10million”
Harry eyes widened
“For what?”
“So I won’t work for you or your mother” she replied
“Okay…give me your Account details I will pay it by end of the week”
“Then I will leave by the end of the week when you have the money”
“I’m not letting you into my house. Go and tell that old lady you gave up”
“I’m sorry I won’t be able to do that.. Pay me $10 million then I will leave to tell your mom I give up”
“What do you want?”
“I want to work for you Mr Harry Jones.. Oh maybe he’s inside” she was almost moving to the door but Harry blocked her pathway.
“Leave or else I will call the cops”
He meant otherwise in his mind but he didn’t want to admit that he wanted her to stay. She leaned in and placed her hands on his chest.
She must be a toucher!
Harry tensed up..jolt of electricity ran down his spine and his middle clenched at her touch. He stepped away from her.
“Don’t you ever touch me again”
He said I’m a harsh voice
“I’m not scared of the cops” she said sternly
“I have heard a lot of things about you. So stop being stubborn and tough because I won’t give up. Let’s stop this conversation and go in because I can see snow making it way down to the earth slowly”
“And who says you are coming in with me?”
“Me..look I won’t be staying for too long. Uhmm two months and I’m gone”
She moved to the door
“Open up and let’s go in” she said
He nodded in agreement. Her face brightened that he agreed to let her in
“Step aside”
“Why?”
“I can’t let you see my password”
“What’s so special about it? I need to know it as your maid”
“You are not scared of the cops right?”
She nodded
He watched her for seconds without pressing the buttons. Ephyra felt uncomfortable at his stare and she stepped backward. He was different from James. She thought
Harry occupied the space to hide his pins from Ephyra. The door buzzed and it opened
“Go and get your box” he said
The box was quite far to the door,so she went for it.
Harry stepped in quickly and shut the door.
“Hey!” She banged on the door. She hissed out loudly. She shouldn’t have agreed to get the box. Ephyra grumbled and stamped her feet. She should have suspected it. She hit the door with her foot and screamed in pain at the same time.
“Bad ass Boss! This is so annoying!” She grumbled
Ephyra hoped that Harry would change his mind and open the door before snowfall or else she would freeze to death out here
Her phone buzzed, she took it out of her jacket pocket. It was James.
“Hello James”
“How are you doing Ephyra?”
“I’m fine”
“Have you settled down in his home?”
“I’ve gat everything covered James” she lied
“Well.. If you are not comfortable there..you can come back and get a better job”
“I’m fine James…thanks”
“Okay”
“Extend my greetings to Gideon”
“Take care” he hung up
Harry was looking at Ephyra inside. He noticed that she was on phone..probably calling the old lady. He thought
Then he realized that she didn’t tell him her name. It was his fault! He did not give her the chance to introduce herself.
What was wrong with him? This was a great chance to get to know her..but he waved it off like it didn’t matter to him. He motioned towards the kitchen to prepared dinner.
“She would leave after some minutes” he thought
Minutes clicked by and he cursed under his breathe when the doorbell sounded..but he ignore it.
He carried his food to the intercom. Ephyra was still there. He checked out the window,it was already snowing.
“She would get cold and call the old lady that she give up” he whispered
“Two hours more and she would get tired…” He concluded
Ephyra pulled off her heels and buttoned up her coat to avoid cold. She fought the strong urge to call Isobel and tell her that she gave up.
“No..no..you can do this Ephyra… No Giving Up”
♦ ******* ♦
ONE HOUR LATER
The cold air made her gasp and she pulled her jacket more tightly around her. Ephyra stepped into the snow to see if the lights were on. The snow immediately penetrated her boots,the howling of the wind scared her a bit. She started forward, the cold made her barehand and knee ache so she pushed her hands into her pocket.
“Mr Harry!” She called but her voice was lost in the wind.
“Mr Harry!” She yelled again. She started to the side of the house. As she walked keeping her head down against the driving snow.
“Mr Harry! Open the door!” She screamed. All she heard was the wind..more and more snow as she called out to him. It was then it hit her that Harry might be asleep. She looked closely the lights were on through the curtains. She wandered to the right side.
“Harry! Please open up!”
The snow caught at her feet tripping her, sending her falling. And there was no hands to stop the fall. And she went down into cold wetness, which went down her neck,up to her sleeves, into her nose and mouth. Ephyra wondered if a person could drown in snow. She couldn’t find anything to hold on to,to get back on her feet. The cold was overwhelming and she was gasping, totally off balance. She knew she should have waited on the porch. She hit the icy ground with her hand. She wasn’t born and bred to this life. This sort of weather did strange things to people.
“Mr Harry!” She screamed
His eyes flare open immediately when he heard the loud cry. He remembered the psycho lady was still out in the cold while he had fallen asleep on the couch.
“Damn it!” He muttered
He rushed to his room to grab a jacket. He didn’t know what to call her as he looked around him into the night and storm.
“Lady!” He shouted in the wind.
He cupped his hand at his mouth and tried again
“Miss!” He listened for a second and then he heard a voice.
“Mr Harry!”
He wasn’t sure if he heard it or he’d just imagined it until he heard it again. He took off in the direction of the sound,stumbling through the snow. He saw a figure in the swirling snow.
“Mr Harry!” Ephyra cried. He headed for her then he was there. Harry grabbed her hand, lifting her up. And without thinking he pulled her to him and the next instance her arms went around him,hugging him tight,her face buried in his chest. The instant he held her,he felt something in him that he’d been trying to keep at bay. His heart arched from a fear that came from knowing what could have happened to her. The fear caught him and his hold on her tightened for a moment.
“What in hell were you thinking?” Harry demanded with more roughness
“I was…calling..for you” she said in a voice so unsteady and low that he almost couldn’t make out her words. He held her away from him and saw her chin trembling. And he grounded out
“You’re a fool”
“It…was..your..fault..” She shuddered violently. He felt her unsteadiness. He wanted her gone. He wanted to be the way he’d been for years – alone. He tried to let her go but the moment he did,he felt her fade to one side,so he had no choice but to keep that contact. The wind grew in intensity as he slipped his arm around her shoulder letting her lean against him and turned her towards the porch. As he pulled her to his side,she hid her face in his jacket. Ephyra seemed to have no strength. By the time they got to the porch Ephyra was badly able to walk. Her jacket was heavy with snow and she was pale. Her breathing was unsteady and shallow and she was shaking all over. Ephyra hugged herself as Harry opened the door. He helped her with the box.
“Take off your coat” he said when they stepped in.
Her hands were shaking so badly she couldn’t pull at a button. He unbuttoned her jacket for her and tossed it on the floor.
“Full heat will only hurt you more” he said. Harry knew the signs of hypothermia. Heat could do more damage to her. She needed to regulate her own body heat. He felt the urge to touch her pale cheeks.
“You..left..me..out..there” she shuddered violently again
“I thought you were going to give up” he said
“Sound… Like a plan” she muttered
he looked at her again
“Where..is ..my ..room.?” She asked
“Come on..” He pointed towards a direction. She looked at him and it was then that Harry realized something was wrong. She shivered violently again,her whole body shaking, then her hand went towards him and as he reached for her hand,he saw her falling to the ground. He caught her and then scooped her up in his arms. She was completely limp and he knew she was unconscious. Then he rushed her to his bedroom.

Episode 12
Theme: In His Home
HARRY’S BEACH HOUSE
Ephyra felt a hand on her forehead,a gentle contact,warm and careful. She felt a pain when the soft warmth dissolved and comfort was gone. Her skin on fire, an aching all over. She felt the heat and cold,the pain and burning and bone deep aches. Then the shaking started, convulsive shivering. She heard a deep voice,soft and soothing. She felt something against her lips,cool liquid and she choked on it and the managed to swallow. The shaking grew until someone gather her in strong arms,holding her tightly as if to keep her steady. And gradually,the shivering lessened and she snuggled into the warmth. The voice whispered she’d be okay. And very slowly she fell asleep.
Ephyra didn’t know anything until she felt herself waking from a deep sleep.
She heard a voice
“I wish I could get her to the hospital” Harry said on phone
“Even if you could,she can’t go back outside” Doctor Brandon replied
“She’s doing better” His voice was low
“Well she’s lucky you knew what to do” the doctor said
“Really lucky Doc… Thank You”
She was too weary to open her eyes or speak. Harry touched her wrist,holding it lightly,then the touch was gone.
“Her pulse is strong,a bit fast and she’s breathing well. Her body temperature is normal and her color’s better”
“You did a good job” the doctor said
“Just make sure she’s fine”
“Of course..thanks” Harry cuts the call.
He touched Ephyra again,this time on the forehead. He leaned closer and whispered to her.
“You are okay…just rest”
Then she let go and tumbled back into the comfort of sleep. Harry watched Ephyra settle and something in him eased. He took a deep breathe for the first time since he had carried her into his bedroom more than 8hours ago. He could hardly breathe without tightness. She’d be okay.
He moved out of the room to get a cup of coffee in the kitchen.
♦ ******* ♦
Ephyra woke up with a start to darkness. She blinked,a panic of not knowing where she was or what had happened choking her for a minute. Then she remembered everything. She closed her eyes for a moment and lay very still as she remembered Harry. She was in bed,she knew that and she was warm. She opened her eyes slowly trying to focus. She slowly turned her head toward the light source in the room. She looked beyond and her breath caught. Harry was there. He was sitting in a couch about two feet from the bed,his eyes on her.
“You..” she said
“You are awake” he said softly
He stood up. Harry was dressed in a flannel shirt and jeans and hair slicked back from his face. He moved towards the bed.
“How do you feel?” He was bending over her,then he touched her forehead.
“Good” he murmured
She shifted slightly to test her body and that was when she felt the blanket directly on her skin. She peered under the blanket and saw that she was naked. Ephyra pulled the blanket up to her chin and glared at Harry.
“What did you do to me?”
“Questions again” he reached for her wrist and circled it with his fingers. She tried to get free but Harry didn’t stop touching her.
“You must be feeling better”
He said with a smile as he took her pulse. That wasn’t funny! Here she was in her bra and panties,in a bed in his home. She trembled and tugged to get free
“Let me go or I’ll -”
“Shh..let me concentrate” he said
She bit her lip and waited,then he finally let her go and stood back.
“Now what do you think I did to you, or I was doing to you?”
He asked
Ephyra kept the blanket up to her chin.
“I’m naked”
That brought a small smile to his lips that only made her face burn
“Not completely.. It’s best to get rid of clothes where there’s a chance of hypothermia especially if they are wet and cold”
She didn’t know the meaning of Hypothermia
“But…”
“You passed out and you weren’t in any condition to undress yourself” it didn’t make her feel better
“Well…so..you just..undressed me” she stuttered
“You looked pretty awful when I found you but now you are in a good shape and the shivering stopped”
“So.. whose…fault was that..”
“I told you to leave but you refused. I thought you were going to come loose with all the shaking you were doing”
“I..i..feel..okay now. My clothes..where -”
“You still want to stay around and work for me?”
“I’m not giving up Mr Harry Jones”
He kept watching her and it made Ephyra uncomfortable. Her face colored when she remembered someone holding her when she was shivering. It was Harry holding her when she was wearing only bra and panties.
“Perhaps…how long have I been out?”
“29 hours”
“I’ve been here for a whole day!”
“More than a whole day”
She tried to maneuver herself into a half sitting position with her back against the headboard.
“I’m hungry” Ephyra said abruptly
He stood there silently,and she became uncomfortable at his silence.
“Mr Harry Jones can I get my clothes?..I need to eat or I’ll die of hunger” she murmured
“Okay”
“Wait..is this my room?” He turned to face her
“No” he walked away and came in later with her box.
“Thanks” Harry moved out of the room. She went to the door and locked it. She took out her towel and nightgown and went to the bathroom.
♦ ****** ♦
Ephyra walked into the kitchen. Harry was there, a pot of coffee on the gas and he was taking something out of the toast machine.
“Cinnamon toast” she said
“Yes”
It was getting close to midnight. She sank into a chair at the kitchen table. He brought two coffee cups to the table and sat across from her. Harry sipped his coffee and ate his toast. Ephyra sat back cradling the mug in one hand.
“Now let’s do a proper introduction” she said
Harry put down his mug and looked right at her.
“I am Ephyra Adams”
“Ephyra Adams” he nodded slowly
“Your mother hired me to -”
“She’s not my mother”
She exhaled noisily
“Why do you keep saying that your mom…” Her voice trailed
“Stop…if you want to stay around then stop talking about that woman” he stood up and walked away
“What’s so wrong about his mom? He’s so proud! She did nothing wrong! And isn’t he old enough to realize that… Jerk!” She took another sip of her coffee
*
*
*
NEXT MORNING ????
Harry yawned loudly as he made his way to the kitchen. He was tempted to check on Ephyra but he walked on. He stopped at the entrance of the kitchen. Ephyra was there working her way around the kitchen as she hummed a song he couldn’t make sense of. He cleared his throat and she turned to face him.
“Oh! Good Morning Boss!” She greeted cheerfully
“Good morning Ephyra”
He gulped down a bottle of water from the refrigerator.
“Can we talk?” She asked
“Yes..as long as it’s not about old lady”
“Well it about my job”
“You’re giving up?”
“Never! I was just about telling that I won’t be giving up anytime soon”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes..I’m not the type to give up easily” she replied
“Get ready we are heading to my agency”
“But..the snow…”
“It not snowing anymore..and the roads are cleared now”
“Okay Boss. Food is ready”
She said when he was almost leaving the room.
“I am not hungry”
“Okay”
* ****
* *
******
Harry rolled his eyes when he saw Ephyra. He was surprised to see her on heels in this sort of weather whereby the roads are still slippery and not fit to walk on.
“You can’t come with me in my car” Harry said
“Why?” Ephyra demanded
“I don’t like sharing my car with anyone”
“What?”
“You heard me” he moved to the driver’s seat and entered the car.
“But I am your PA, so I have to be everywhere you are….” Ephyra moved to him
“Why?”
“If..if anything happens or goes wrong with you..then I get blamed for it”
“I don’t care” he grounded
“What?” She glared at him
Harry glanced at his wrist watch
“I’m running late make sure you meet up at Gold Mall”
“Are you serous right now Boss?”
“Dead serious Miss” he grinned. He was almost closing the car door but Ephyra held it. He tried to pull it but he couldn’t. Ephyra was holding it with her super strength.
“Won’t you let go?”
“I won’t let go until you agree to give me a ride”
“No”
“How do I get to Gold Mall? I don’t even know the place” she said sincerely
“You can ask around or use your google Map”
“Well you and I both know that no one lives around here. And I have to walk to the next bus station to take a bus which will also take a while…”
“Like I said.. I Don’t Care. Meet me at the Mall by 9:00 or else you get fired!” He pointed at her
“9:00?! How…”
She loosened her grip on the door and Harry closed it,shoving her aside in the process. She staggered backwards on heels and hit the ground hard suddenly. Harry drove off without looking back at her.
Her phone beeped. It was Isobel.
“Good Morning Madam Isobel”
“How are you doing?”
“I’m fine..thanks”
“What about Harry?”
“Oh! He’s fine”
“Where is he?”
“He left not quite long”
“Perhaps… Is he giving you any problem?”
“No”
She tried to stand up bit she screamed at the sharp pain in her ankle.. Ephyra wondered if she had broken a bone.
“Are you okay?” Isobel asked
“Yes..yes..I’m fine” she lied
Slowly she removed her heels and made her way back to the front door.
“Did he tell you where…”
“Gold Mall..he asked me to meet him at the Mall”
“Did he tell you why he wants to visit the Mall?”
“Probably to buy some stuffs…”
“I’m just surprised at his sudden visit to the Mall. He has not been there for years now”
“Well..maybe he want to check it out today”
Ephyra limped back to the door.
“So why are you alone?”
“Uhmm..I need to clear something up at home before joining him at the mall”
“So..did you talk to him about me?”
“Yes I did”
“So what did he say?”
Ephyra was silent
She tried to think of what to say to Isobel. Lying was not the best in this situation.
“He denied you”
Now it was Isobel’s turn to be silent.
“I’ll keep trying my best…”
“Thanks…I’m just glad that he didn’t call me up to complain about you. So I guess you are both doing fine”
“Yes we are fine”
“Please take care of my son”
“You can count on me Madam Isobel”
“Bye”
“Have a nice day” she hang up
“This is so annoying!” She said after trying Harry’s passwords.
“Its so painful…” She rubbed her ankle gently
“Argg! Harry! You bastard!”
She dialed his number and he picked
“What do you want?”
“Well..you see Boss..I need to get my phone from the house but I don’t know the password”
“Your phone?”
“Yes”
“So what are you using to call me?”
Then she realized what she just said
“Oh sorry Boss! Not..my phone…i meant to say my wallet. Yes..yes my wallet. I don’t have money in my jacket to pay a Taxi”
“4801” he said
She pressed on the buttons and it opened
“Oh thanks Boss!”
In the real sense Ephyra wanted to change her heels into a comfortable boot.
“Mr Harry was so wicked for pushing like that..he thinks I am going to hive up because of this…fool! Never!”
***
***
***
She came out minutes later and started the trek to the nearest bus station. She prayed that a taxi should appear out of no where to help her to the Mall. Ephyra became frustrated when none showed up. She got to the bus station and she saw an old man offloading cartons from an old truck into a mini mart next to the station.
“Excuse me Sir” she said
The man turned to face her
“How may I help you..young lady?”
“When is the next bus arriving?”
“I have no idea..I haven’t seen any bus around lately”
“Why?”
“They only come around if people want to visit the beach mostly during festive period or special days”
The old man groaned in pain when he bent down to lift a carton
“Oh sorry..let me help”
She carried three heavy boxes into the mart.
The old man was surprised. Ephyra saw an old woman in the store. She sat at the pay desk.
“Good Morning Ma” she greeted her
The old lady was stunned
“Uhmm..where should I drop these cartons?”
“Over..over there” she stuttered
Ephyra dropped it and went back to the old man.
“How..how did you manage -”
“Give me a ride to town” she cuts him off to silence him. She knew it was her Super strength at work and she was not ready to tell him about it. He might think she’s crazy.
“I will help you with the boxes and you give me a ride into town. And I can drive If you let me” she said
