I wasn’t kidding when I said the building was huge. No matter how many tours I take, I’ll never be able to survey the whole place. Good thing I wasn’t staying for long.
Damon’s office was close to mine. Infact our offices were separated by a mere door. My job wasn’t at all difficult, file papers, remind him of his meetings and inform him of any visitors. I typed away in my computer checking if he had any appointments for the day.
As easy as the job was, it felt a little boring.
I got out my phone, playing video games to pass time away. The landline on the table connecting us started ringing. I got startled and dropped my phone.
“Damn it….” I cursed picking my phone off before answering the landline.
“When I call you, answer immediately. Not a second late Miss Salvatore” He yells into the receiver. I dropped it slightly muttering curses under my breath.
“Sorry Sir.” I say clenching my teeth.
“My office. Now.” He thunders.
“Does he have to be so arrogant.” I roll my eyes standing up. It’s taking everything in me not to answer me. Everything. He’s pushing me to the edge and I might just have to say something. I pick up the pace and open the door not wanting to be tempted any longer.
He buried his head in paper work, I cleared my throat announcing my presence.
“I need you to set an appointment with the cosmetic company tomorrow at 9am.”
“But Sir couldn’t you have said that over the phone?”
I regret my sarcastic question wishing I had kept my mouth shut. He glances at me for a second, I wished the ground would open up and swallow me.
“Miss Salvatore” He calls out, I shut my eyes tightly.
“Why can’t you ever shut up.” I mumbled to myself.

“Miss Salvatore.” He startled me and I realised I’ve been talking to myself without responding.
“Yes Sir.” I mouth in fear.
“Set that appointment and come back immediately, we’re leaving. I need you to take notes for a meeting I have.”
“Okay Sir.” I exhaled, turn around and walked away.
“I need to learn to shut up.”
“Oh and don’t hit your head on the way out.” He mocks, I look ahead and my head almost made an impact with the door. I move away quickly, slapping myself as I go back to my office to set the appointment.
He walks out through the main door minutes later and I follow subtly behind.
“I have a meeting, you don’t have to do much. Stand there and take notes. When I get back, I expect a report on it.” I nodded my head bowing my head.
“I expect an oral answer when I speak to you.” Since he wasn’t watching, I rolled my eyes.
“Yes Sir.” I respond.
“Good, the driver would be here soon. We’re heading off to Mickelson industries.” He says, I froze. My feet glued to the ground unable to move. I finally raised my head to look at him.
“Umm, I can’t go there.” I say in a firm tone.
“What did you say?”
He asks and I smack my lips.
