It's been a long night, and I'm not sure if it is fun going to a pub when I need to wake up early for work after tonight. My eyes feel gritty, and there's an ache stretching across my shoulders maybe this is because I slept in one position the whole night. Damn, how I wish I could crawl back into my bed until the pain in my shoulder will dissipate before I could get up and start another day for this week. But I was perplexed when I looked at my alarm clock on my bedside table and found out that I only have thirty minutes to prepare to go to the office. So I am rushing everything to consume the time, less than I usually did. Truly the time comes fast as it was. In the blink of an eye, it becomes an hour. An hour becomes a day and a day becomes a week without realizing it. Today, I become one month working as executive assistant of my outstanding Yummy boss. Oh my God! what was I thinking? The time and days that we spend working together make us more familiar with each other. We work harmoniously that makes the other colleague of mine wonder but I never give any malice of how Mr. Stanley treated me because that kind of boss is what I was praying when I was applying for a job be it in here or in the other company. Mr. Stanley treated me professionally and that's what I am to him too. I am used to the way my boss treated me. In my own understanding, it's just a pure employee and employer nature of sense.
From the time I started working, I have never been late even once. This morning was an exception. When the time I arrive at the entrance of the huge building where I work, I can see that everyone is already doing their own duties. I immediately enter the elevator taking advantage that no one bothers to look at me because they don't even notice me. I press the button for the top floor where my office was in. As for the reason why I was late this time it's because of Liz again. Yesterday is my day off and normally it's also the time that I can tidy my house then wash my clothes. After doing all of it, I would love to have a peaceful nap to relax. And that relaxation has never happened yesterday. Liz called me and tug me along with her to the pub to sip wine, yeah she said that only sip. Liz, it said that this serves as a celebration of our first salary. It is only dawn that Liz has enough for her facade so we decided to go home which is why I was late today. If Mr. Stanley will fire me because of being late, I'm done. I hope not if worst I will beg him not to fire me instead cut my salary for half a month. Next time I won't go out with Liz like that ever again. I carry on to my office then rashly fix some work before reporting today's schedule of my boss. I like this job, not just like I need this job more than liking it. I knock on the door before entering then I walk near his table with bulks of documents in my hand. While walking towards him he looks up and our eyes meet. My heart was beating fast, initially because of being late this morning but for other reasons, I am always captivated with that handsome face of him. " Goodmorning Mr. Stanley here are the documents that need to be reviewed and your today's schedule I printed it so that if in case you can forget you just have to look at it," I said feigned not being nervous. " Thank you, you can leave".He said void with emotion. It was just like I gained a pardon from being prison so I fled immediately not wanting to face my punishment. Thank goodness It seems that he doesn't know? or his just too busy to care for my small mishap but it does not sound like his style, never mind I have to face it whenever he would confront me. Returning to my office I buried myself for other work so as to patch up the time that I miss this morning.
while I was working on something pop-up in my mind, I pulled myself together unconsciously stole a glance at the clock on the wall that hangs above my office door. It was already twelve in the afternoon, time for lunch I don't have to bother myself ordering take-out food for my boss because he has a client meeting outside. I gather myself to the cafeteria just on the first floor of this building. I ordered my food and finish it in no time. I came back to my office. Time flew so by quickly. A day passed just like that. Before I go home I prepare the files and proposals that need to be review and sign by Mr. Stanley tomorrow along with his schedule. I put it on the table of my boss so that I don't need to face him tomorrow morning. After doing so, I walk inside the elevator towards the parking lot of the Stanley Manufacturing building. I just walk out of the elevator and I can see that uncle ben is opening the car door while smiling at me. Uncle Ben is the chauffer of Stanley's family that has been assigned as a company driver, he is serving my boss's family for almost 15 years. Now his job was included sending me to and fro. He in his fifty years old now. He is like a father to me after a month of being acquainted. The car is now speeding up in the road of this bustling city. I sit down quietly looking outside the car window. I don't know why but it suddenly dunned in me that it's like I miss someone. And who could it be? I don't have a boyfriend, or is it my parents? It couldn't be the case too because I always called my parents every weekend. I felt empty and weary, sigh maybe I am lack sleep so I would sleep early tonight so I can get rid of this uncomfortableness. I was interrupted with my thoughts when Uncle Ben stops the car in front of my apartment so I put away that unlikely thought. I got out of the car then wave thank uncle ben before walking towards my apartment. That's how my day has ended, a boring one to tell.
I felt tired while walking towards the parking area of the famous cuisine in city A. This day I only stayed three hours in my office after that three hours, I was out for a client after a client meeting. Even for lunch I still had to talk to a business partner. I don't even have time to break at least an hour of not facing those opportunists individual. I inwardly sigh at that thought, I can't do anything about it that's how business works. I sat down inside my car, my driver who is sitting in the driver's seat to look at me through the rearview mirror of my car, and I don't need to question him what was that look for. I told him to send me home. He nodded politely before starting the car and drove away through the crowded road. It is a wee hour so naturally, there's a traffic jam along the way but fortunately, it is not that bad this time, we still arrive early as we expected. As I reached the door of my house, I took out my keys I open the door and went inside. I place the
It is my second week of the second month of working with Stanley Corporation. Today is Tuesday, I have been waiting for a taxi for more than thirty minutes but there is not even one. When I was about to lose my patience Mr. Satnley's car stop right in front of me. He said with a smiling face," Good Morning Miss Lim, If your okay I can give you a ride." I who is looking at his smiling face was intimidated by his smile again. But I immediately mask it. I nodded my head then said, "Thank you, Mr. Stanley," while getting in the car and putting on my seatbelt as well. We arrived at the building in less than twenty minutes. I am the one who got out of the car first. I thank him again then go in first because he will park his car in the parking area reserved for his car. when I'm thanking him he just nodded his head without uttering a word. I rashly go up to my office. I don't need to Go to Mr. Stanley's office this instant because I already put the things as well as his schedule for today
It's Monday and I am back to work. Today was different I don't know why. Today seems too busy than the other day. There's a lot of work. Work has been filing and filing without stopping. Soon the day is about to end but my work is not yet done. Until its already seven in the evening but I am not still done with those works. I was not able to eat my lunch because I forgot the time. It was exhausting I was finally done with today's work and it is already eleven o'clock in the evening. I kept everything in place before I left. I was left with a little energy. I take a cab not wanting to disturb uncle ben. I almost fall asleep during the ride. I just try to keep my eyes open until I reach my apartment. As soon as I reach my apartment I plopped down on my couch and dozed off. I didn't even bother to change my clothes or have something to eat.. That's how tired I was. I was awakened by the sunrise shining in my face. I open my eyes look in the direction of the light from the
I woke up early as usual and do my morning routine as always. I Have to go to the office this day and in the evening is the ball which makes me excited because my date is my assistant that I like. And tonight would be my plan for my first step on pursuing her. I have to take it easy so as not to embarrass myself also. After getting ready, I got in my car and drove towards my company. When I arrived at the parking lot, I vaguely see a figure of a woman walking towards the lift. The figure looks like Cass, She is so early today. Actually, I feel sorry for her for how many days of keeping her busy but I can't help it I really need her assistance so that it could be completed before the targeted time. Thanks for my diligent assistant its really done ahead of the requested time frame. I'm walking towards my office while passing by the office of Cass I stole a glance at her and I can see a glimpse of happiness. And she looks refresh maybe because I let her rest yesterday. I get inside my
There it was, a red blood ball dress. It looks amazing and magnificent. It was an off-shoulder with heart shape corset and princess style. It was just unbelievable. Beside it was a red plump that had sparks of gold in the heels. What was Liz thinking? anyway, she's good at the things like that so she has to be a good taste. I sighed I had no other choice. I was thinking about how I would going to style my hair when I heard a knock on the door. When I open it," Hi miss Lim right? I was sent by Mr. Stanley to help you for tonight." she said politely. It turns out Mr. Stanley hired a person to put on makeup and style my hair for me. Very thoughtful indeed. " Okay, Thank you. Please come in." I said while letting her inside my apartment. " It's okay MMiss Lim, I think Mr. Stanley deserves your gratitude. I am just a person paid by him to beautify you tonight but I can see the reason why Mr.Stanley is doing this to you." She said with a smile on her face. Hearing what she say
I excused myself there to give them time to talk first so that I could also think alone for a while. I sit down at the bar counter to have some drink a little and from where I am sitting I can see them talking and it seems that they are whispering. I sigh, that's how girls talk a girly talk. I went in pouring some drink for myself. I am not going to drunk. Just something to take my mind off. " Mr...I mean Josh" I heard someone said from the side. " May I?" It's her best friend Liz pointing to the seat beside me. " Sure," I said. " Would you like to drink?" I asked her. she nodded. And I called a bartender to get some ladies' drink. I poured it into her glass. We took a few sips. I was wondering what would she want to talk about that makes her follow here. " You like my best friend right?" she asked me suddenly and I was stunned Is it that obvious? I smiled at her. " Looked I know you like her and please don't deny it," she said with confidence. So I nodded. " Too bad y
We arrived at my apartment. He already stopped the car but because we are still talking about each other, I didn't get out of his car immediately. We are talking like friends long ago. We lost track of the time until we realized that it was already one o'clock in the morning when he dismissed me right away. We have a good time talking to each other. I felt happy to have another friend other than Liz. Anyway, he said a close friend so I agreed. But if I am being honest I like his personality too. He doesn't have the vibe of a spoiled rich young man. Maybe his parents discipline him for be would be in charge of their big business company. Actually, if he is not so rich and also my boss, I might be fantasizing to become his girlfriend someday. But Heis my boss and he is rich and I am not. He also has a girlfriend so it is a good thing to be his close friend. I was taken aback when he told me about being friends and he wants to know me better, especially when he told me th
I sleep until three o'clock in the afternoon, and I was awakened by the sound of urgent knocking on my door. I frantically get out of my bed and walk to the main door of my apartment where the knocking hasn't stop. I was still a little groggy from my sleep. When I opened the door it was Liz who immediately walks inside while rumbling something that I cannot comprehend because my mind is not yet totally awaken. I close the door after letting her in. When I turn around I see her about to sit down on my couch. I walk towards my small living room where my friend was already sitting looking gloomy. "Why is that face?" I said. She looked at me with a little confusion, "What you still didn't know?" she said irritably. " Here I am worrying too much but I can see that I am worrying for nothing," she continued. " Is it the news on Weibo that you are referring to?" Don't mind them we know that it is all fake news and besides we already know that they are just making that news for money. As lon
