She does not even know that running a bar is as simple as what she does everyday, which is socializing. Chuks says that he will not give the keys in that case.

She says she needs to get up & he tells her that she has to as it is these afternoon trysts that give Kwame time to sneak behind their backs. She asks if he is still griping about that? He does not trust Kwame and that Joan woman. He also thinks that Kwame and Brenda may be trying to steal his company. She asks why she will do that? Because they are Brenda and Kwame. She tells him that Brenda is not interested in their company. He asks her why she thinks so? Because Brenda is her friend? She replies that the company is no threat to her. He tells her that he will be keeping a closer eye on Kwame’s side of things going forward. The business side.
TTK is pacing in the bar when Carol (sans uniform) enters. She heaves a huge sigh of relief & tells Carol to get to work chop-chop. Carol tells her that she has never worked in a bar before but TTK tells her that it is nothing more than she already does. She asks if she only needs to wash the dishes & TTk tells her to consider it as cooking with a little alcohol. It is nothing more than she is already doing. She should consider it as an adventure and the walking up and down is excellent exercise which Carol need now that she is getting round in the middle. She pokes Carol’s tummy & as she was still complaining, TTk sweeps out of the bar.

Tare comes in with a newspaper on Joan & shows Phillip while Kwame is n the phone.
Customers are queueing up for Maami’s pepper soup. TTK is distressed that Maami has reduced the bar to a cross between a beer palour and a school cafeteria. She grabs Salewa’s bowl of pepper soup & sends her to ensure that Carol is taking note of the number of people that took pepper soup. When she comes back, TTK asks her if Toks likes pepper soup? Salewa is not amused as TTK starts sneezing.
Angela says that she has been drinking. She thought they should celebrate. Celebrate what? He asks. She thinks they should celebrate the absence of pretences, getting to know each other. He sits on the couch with her as she leans across him & grabs his walking stick that conceals a sword. She pulls out & sheaths the sword in a suggestive manner while he watches her. She gets up & straddles him but after a while, he seems to pull something off her ear & pushes her away Angela, stop embarrassing yourself, he tells her!
