|A+ A- Full 3/4 1/2 Expand Tighten|
I was a pro at my job, the best of my kind. I was always ahead of the rest. I always knew what my bosses were about to say before they even opened there mouths. I constantly finished projects before they were due. I guess you could say I was kind of a boss's pet. I was the best, until Edward Cullen came along.
When he came into the picture I became a fidgeting, nervous wreck. I lost my a-game whenever he was near. I never knew what he was going to say because I would get distracted by his beauty. I had piles of files building on my desk because I often found myself daydreaming, losing all track of time.
I came to The Cullen Empire because I heard it was one of the best places to work and that it was a real challenge to work there. I was excited and eager for the task, wanting to expand my mind and show my skills.
It wasn't till I started that I realized just how right people were. It was a challenge, but not in the reason one would think. The work was easy, every day, secretary duties. The problem was trying to actually finish your work on time and not become a stuttering idiot whenever the boss, Mr. Cullen arrived.
Mr. Edward Cullen was the figure of perfection. He was tall, he had ear length brown hair that was slicked back with gel every day, his eyes were a deep emerald green color, his lips were a light pink and looked firm to the touch, his body was lean yet built with everything easily defined in his work suites, and his voice was gentle and smooth .Every girl in the office worshiped him and tried hard to win his attention with miniskirts and tight shirts that showed their cleavage.
I laughed at the far attempts the women went too just to get Edward to glance over at them. Of course he always ignored them heading on his way to his office. Mr. Cullen wasn't there to picking up women, he actually came to work. I wondered how long it would take for my co-workers to realize that and if they ever would.
Mr. Cullen passed by my desk giving his morning greeting all around without stopping or looking back. I got a glimpse of Edward's clean cut look before he entered his office shutting the door. I took a whiff of his manly cologne that still hovered in the air before going back to the files on my desk.
I worked for a good hour and a half before getting bored with the material in front of me. My eyes drifted up towards Edward's office, watching him through the huge window that parted him from the rest of us. He was sitting behind his desk, looking tired and strained. I watched as his brought his big, strong hands up, cracking his neck before slowly moving his hands down the back of his neck trying to take the ache out. His eyes closed on contact as he moved his hand in circles, caressing the sore area. I wanted desperately to go behind him and rub his pain away, wishing it were my hands that brought him pleasure.
Suddenly his eyes snapped open, as if he could feel my eyes a pond him, his gaze directed on me.
Shit was I staring the whole time?
Immediately the intercom went off at my desk causing me to jump a little in surprise.
I froze hearing my boss's voice on the other side.
"Please report to my office."
I gulped feeling like I was going to a get in a lecture.
A lecture for staring?
"Yes sir?" I asked timidly, afraid of what he could possibly have to say.
He gestured for me to sit down before he started to talk.
"You have been working here for what, a couple of months now?" He questioned leaning back in his chair.
"Umm, yes, it will be three in April."
Mr. Cullen scanned me over before he let out a sigh, getting up from his chair. I watched on edge as he began to pace the room back in forth.
"I have to say I'm disappointed with your recent work effort."
"You seemed promising when I hired you, a real go-getter. However lately, your work has been slipping."
Mr. Cullen headed back towards his desk as he continued with his speech.
"You're not returning reports in on time and you often seem out of it, like your mind is elsewhere. I expected more from you with your impressive resume. I expect more from my employees period."
Was it really that obvious?
Shit, is he going to fire me?
I need this job.
He took a seat back in his chair. A look of determination graced his features.
"I need to know I can count on you, that you will work late nights to fix this mess you caused and get these files done by deadline."
Great, there goes my social life, not that I really had one to start with.
"Yes sir, I'm sorry it won't have again."
Mr. Cullen gave me a small smile in return, causing my heart to race and my limbs to become mush.
"Glad to hear that. Now get back to work."
I carefully grabbed the side of the chair to help support my weak limbs before I made my way out.
How the hell am I going to finish all this work in time?
And how the hell am I going to be able to stay focus on my work with him around?
Note: Review! The chapters are probably going to be short and I'm not sure how many chapters I'm going to do either. Let me know what you think. ;)
