Gloria covered her head with the pillow to drown out the sound of her phone alarm.
It wasn’t working.
She eventually reached for her phone to hit the snooze button.
“Ten more minutes”, she hissed under her breath.
“Can’t I just continue sleeping?!”
She jumped out of bed as she remembered what day it was. Promotion Interview was today!
She reached for her phone to read her Bible passage for the day:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding…”
“Thank You Lord for this timely word, just what I needed to hear”
She spent the next few minutes worshiping God and praying.
It would indeed be a great day, she thought as she picked out her new suit.
She had to impress the panel; nothing must go wrong.
She got into the shower and got ready for the day, trying hard not to disturb her husband who was still fast asleep.
She gave Peace, her maid instructions for breakfast for the kids as she made her way out of the house, hurrying to beat the traffic from her home at Surulere to her office at Lekki.
“7:48“, the clock on the dashboard read as she eased into an empty space in the parking lot of her office complex.
