The sound of chaos in this hectic city pulls me out of a dream that I never wanted to leave. To be specific, it has to be said as an old memory of mine.
I live on the top floor of a penthouse in the city. I wake up to the same noises every morning. The noises of the traffic——the cars, the motorcycles, sometimes the river cruises, for the tour across the DuSable Bridge; and the morning people——citizens, office workers, and tourists.
This is the most north-east part of Illinois, built along one of the edges of the Chicago River——Michigan Avenue, Chicago.
I get out of my bed as soon as I am awake. I put on my red bra and pantie after I cleaned myself. I fill the empty bra with two big silicone bags, I slide my fingers along the pantie line as I adjust the pantie so that my dick and my balls can stay in where they should.
Going through my closet, I choose myself a set of sexy working attire——a semi-transparent chiffon white blouse, and a tight black skirt that is short enough to just wrap my muscular ass up.
When the body is done, I pick up a wavy long blonde wig and put it on my head. I pick up the brush and comb through them very carefully. After I put myself in the clothes and wig, I pick up my one and only lipstick and open the lid.
I twist the lipstick up and softly press the tip onto my lips as I pout at the mirror. Carefully, I trace the shape of my lips and apply the vivid red color onto them. When I am done with it, satisfyingly, I give myself a kiss in the mirror. I put the lipstick into my pink leather handbag and hang the bag over my shoulder.
I walk to the bench next to the door and pick up a pair of black stockings from the box next to it. After I put on the smooth stockings, I put on my shiny red leather high heels.
I walk out of my house and walk down the short hallway until I reach the elevator. I stand in front of the elevator, look into the reflective surface of the door, and smile at myself contentedly.
My name is Henry Iverson. This morning is the first day of the most important expedition that can ever happen in my life.
If you are curious what made me dress like a woman, we’ll have to rewind everything back to a month ago.
One and a half months ago.
It was at midnight when I barged into a pub and came to the bar where my friend, Victor, was sitting at. He was holding a glass of rum in his hand when he turned to me and showed me his most annoyed face.
“Henry. How many times should I tell you, not to call me Victor?” he hollered, “Call me Victoria!” his face then suddenly turned from annoyed to mischievous, he licked his glossy red lips as he mentioned in a sexy voice, “Or even better, you can call me Vivi Baby.”
Victor ‘Victoria’ Babington, or Vivi Baby, the wealthiest yet sluttiest fashion model in town. He is a best friend of mine from high school, we were not in the same class, but we were in the same society——the ARTS, Art Researching T… Society. Don’t ask me what ‘T’ stands for, because no one cares.
We were both into arts, except for I was interested in architectural arts, and Victor was into fashion arts. Well if that’s so, how do we become best buddies?
I remember there was one time when our society held a school trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Victor lured me into the bathroom and tried to come on me. He said he thought I’m gay, but unfortunately I ain’t gay. From there on, I knew about his sexual orientation, and we just became real close after that.
However, that was not the main point. I took out a creased piece of flyer and unfolded it as I showed it to Victor.
“Okay, Vic. Look at this.” I said, “Do you know what this is?”
Victor pondered, and then he answered, “Oh I know! It’s a flyer!” he sneered, as he took a sip of his rum, “Call me a genius, baby.”
I rolled my eyes as I scoffed, “Of course it’s a flyer!” I put the flyer down on the bar table and slapped at it twice with my big palm, “Look at the content!” I pointed at the title as I introduced it, “This is an architectural design competition, held by Minerva.”
A light broke on Victor’s face, “Minerva… as in Peyton Group?” he asked.
I nodded, “Uh-huh!” I picked up the glass of vodka the bartender, Reiss, just put up to the bar table and took a small sip of it, “And I am now telling you that I want to join this competition.”
However, when I was expecting a supportive reaction from Victor, he gave me a cold glance along with a dry chuckle, “I told you before, Henry Baby. If you need money, you can just tell me, I will get you a spot in AD Underwear.”
As he mentioned, he leaned close to me and abruptly grabbed my ass tightly. I couldn’t help but let a squeak elapse my lips when he squeezed my ass.
He whispered, “If you haven’t realized, you have a sexy pair of asses, and you have a beautifully structured le amazing Goddamn dick. You are just born for underwear modelling. Twenty-seven, you’re at a good age for that, and you’ll definitely earn yourself a huge place in the big boy’s world.”
“Tsk! No!” again, I rolled my eyes as I clicked my tongue, “I don’t need the money! My parents left me tons of that to be spent for the rest of my life!” I said.
Victor there showed me a blank face, “Don't you have better things to do then? Why do you want to join the competition all of a sudden?” he asked.
Slapping Victor’s hand away from my ass, in a serious tone I mentioned, “The awards for the winners of the competition is not just money, there is a chance for the winners to earn a position of architectural designer in the company!”
And if, by joining the company could earn me a chance to take over the place of the CEO one day, I might be able to snatch Minerva over.
I needed to do this, “For Minerva, and the dignity of the Iverson Family.”
Minerva, the largest architectural design company in the USA, initially belonged to the Iverson family, it was named after the Roman goddess of wisdom, learning, art crafts and industry.My parents were fine architects, Jack and Lea Iverson, they started everything with this company, they developed their industries and soon built their own empire——the Iverson Group, they became one of the leaders of business in Chicago.Since young, I dreamed of becoming a great architect like my parents, I read my books about the history of architecture, I played with building designing simulators, I visited every museum, gallery and exhibition about all the architecture in the world, I even did my research about the best architecture school in the world so that my dream would come true. The project brief of the competition was to build a contemporary art and cultural gallery at any existing site within Chicago.To have a deeper understanding about contemporary art and culture, I visited the state library to do an enough amount of research and information collection. After that, I travelled through Illinois to visit every art gallery that could be found, especially in Chicago, in order to study the visual and sensory impact that the inside and outside spaces brought to both the environment and the people.I listed down a few key points to the spaces I wanted to present in my project. Afterwards, trying to find the perfect site for my project, Victor and I travelled to everywhere within the first week of the competition duration.After we set our boundary in

A week after we received the invitation, we attended the awarding ceremony of the competition right at one of Jamie Lee Peyton’s properties in Chicago——the Blue Horizon Hotel.Victor dressed himself in a slim fit pink suit with a floral shirt and a white tie inside, while I dressed up in a navy blue suit with a classic white t-shirt underneath. We chose a seat not too close to the front to keep ourselves low profiled, while not too far away from the stage so that we could take a good look at Jamie Lee Peyton’s face.As the ceremony started, the CEO of Minerva——Jamie Lee Peyton, was invited in by the host to give an opening speech. At the moment as he stepped up onto the stage, Victor and I finally had our opportunities to fetch his true appearance in sight. “If you’re paying attention, like you should, because you’re a man too.” Victor mentioned, “A man like Jamie Lee Peyton, the CEO, decent on the outside, but on the inside, he is just as simple as every guy on earth!”My face turned blank, “What do you mean?”Victor clicked his tongue as he slapped his forehead with his palm, “I’m telling you, Henry Baby, unless Jamie Lee Peyton is a gay like me, he won’t be able to resist the seduction of a hot pretty lady!”I sneered, “And... so?”“So!? Seriously!?”Victor sounded a little furious. Before I could realize w

After deciding my female name, Victor began my makeover session first thing next morning.First, he took me to the beauty treatment. I was forced to undergo hair removal treatment, they plucked my facial hair and nose hair with tweezers; they waxed my armpits, chest, legs, and even my private part! Believe me, you won’t want to know how painful that felt!After the hair removal treatment, they gave me a relaxing facial and spa treatment. Glad it was free of charge.Afterwards, Victor took me to the malls he often shopped to get me some essential clothes and accessories for Henrietta Chandelier.We went to the office lady session right away. Victor chose plenty of clothes in different styles and colors with the
Victor came to me and put his hands on my shoulders. He looked into the mirror as he exclaimed, “You are a Goddamn sexy hot blonde, Henrietta.”I chuckled, “I know.” hell I am.There, Victor swept my hair to the back and hooked them across my ear. He touched my left face and laid his fingers at the spot right below the tail of my left eyebrow, where my only mole on my face is.“This mole is the most sexiest trait on your face, use it wisely as I would say.”After finding myself a perfect wig, we chose a pink leather handbag on our way to our next stop. For our next stop, Victor took me to the cosmetic department.Before c
April, 2021. Today, the time has finally come. After I ensure I am one hundred percent prepared to step on the route of my revengeance, I set off from my penthouse for Minerva. As I arrive at Minerva, I look up to the beautiful contemporary high rise building that my parents built. It was a long time ago I last had the chance to take a glance at it. It now looks a little bit different from what was printed in my memories, but I think it is alright for now, because once I take Jamie Lee Peyton down and take over the company, I will turn the building back to how it looked like during its earliest days. Deeply, I take a breath. Once I pick up my courage, I take my step and walk into my battlefield.
My name is Henry Iverson. On my first day at work as the architectural designer of Minerva, I find myself becoming the CEO’s secretary instead.Now that I recall, I finally understand their odd feedback they gave me that day during the interview session on my decision of applying for THAT position on that application form.And I see why they need a new CEO secretary, because the one who was interviewing me is expecting a labour, and I am here to take her place as the new CEO secretary!While I am still sinking in my thoughts, the huge wooden doors next to the desk are suddenly opened, pulling me back to my senses.There, as the doors are opened, a fair man in short blonde hair comes out from the office.
