I couldn’t talk

Me: so that’s why you allowed her to enter
Cecilia: no sir, I went to tell her that you are not around, but she insisted on seeing you, I said she should wait for you at the reception but she said she can’t, that didn’t I know her? or did I want to lose my job? That’s how she bagged in, oga please sir, I have no one than God and you sir (she was crying)
I was touched not by her words but cus she was crying
