Soul Mates or Room Mates. Posted by Abby Fayokun on Sunday, July 29, 2012 “Friends will keep you sane, Love could fill your heart, A lover can warm your bed, But lonely is the soul without a mate.” David Pratt quot Daniel glances at the wall clock again; its 6:30 pm, everyone in the office had gone home or about to, yet, he still has piles of files on his desk to attend to. He was determined to work on every file before he leaves for the day. Almost two hours gone, he's still head locked on his computer when he noticed his boss walking pass his office, seeing him, he turned back in. “What are you still doing here Daniel?” Mr. Edward asked. “Sir, I still have so much work to do.” he replied, standing up. “It's almost 8'o clock and a family man like you shouldn't stay so late outside.” Mr. Edward glanced at the wall clock. “Oh!” Daniel chuckled. He had thought his boss would be impressed at his commitment to stay back at work. “I know Sir, but there is also lots of work to be done here.” He smiled. “Hmm...,” Mr. Edward smiled, pulling a chair to sit on. “Sit Daniel.” Without objection, he did as he was told. Mr. Edward looked at him and smiled; he knew today was the right time to tell him all he had been thinking for a while. “I have noticed you have been staying back at work for quite some time now, months if I am right,” his scrutiny couldn't be missed. “You know the boss sees all these even if I don't say anything.

I am not accusing you of anything. I know your commitment to this company. I am talking about your commitment to your family,” he stared into his eyes. “Now, I am going to come straight to you. For months now, you have been taking so much work at the office to avoid going home, isn't that true?” He looked straight at him. “I...” Daniel straightened in his seat, feeling uncomfortable at the discussion. “Now, son, I have been there. I know every tactics. Once upon a time, every time I want to avoid any confrontation at home, I use my work as an excuse. Well, the good side of it now is this big company I have to call my own but on the other hand, I lost my family to gain all this.” His expression became gloomy. “Now son, there is no success in life when you have no one to spend it with.
