"Annie…Annie!" I call out but she didn't budge.
"Mnghhh…" Annie moans as she rolls over to her side and slowly moves the blanket over her head.
"Wake up, damn it!" I shout and pull the covers off her and fling them across the room. "...Geez, why do I feel like I'm babysitting every day?"
"Hmmm….?" She grumbles and leisurely rises up. "Eh…where's my blanket?"
"Annie…" I clench my fist in annoyance. "JUST BECAUSE YOU BECAME MEISTER AND WON THE COMPETITION DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN LAZE AROUND!"
"Uwahhhh~ Oh good morning Hans" She smiles at nonchalantly.
"You're not even listening to me!" I scold while pointing my finger in a dictator-like manner. "You're not feminine at all. Can't you at least pretend to be aware of your surroundings?"
"I'm listening. Blah blah blah nag nag nag right?" She giggles innocently.
"Why you…" I grit my teeth.
"Ehe, Hans you sure are serious all the time. You won't be able to get a cute girlfriend like that." She comments bluntly. "Ah! It's time for breakfast."
"W-what the? Don't be absurd! H-hey come back here!" I try to retort but she was already heading into the kitchen. "What a handful…"
I follow her trying to explain how I might be able to get a girlfriend one day in life only for it to fall on deaf ears. Annie casually ate her breakfast while chatting with Pepe…completely ignoring my existence. Geez, I hope she isn't reverting back into her former self. She's a handful just as she is now. I sit down and look at them carrying on with their happy conversation. I wonder if they know I'm still here? I glance over at Annie eating happily…she sure likes food. Gah! She's not using proper table manners again! H-hey you're eating cake for breakfast? D-don't use your hands! They'll get sticky! At least put the cake on a plate! Ugh just looking at her is giving me an itch…I want to correct her so desperately. I can't believe she wanted to marry into the royal family like this. I think I better go before I decide to flip their table over.
"I'll be taking my leave now. I'll come back to check on you later. Bye now." I bid them farewell and head back to HQ.
At HQ was bustling as always even after the development was over. There are other jobs to do other than managing the competition and resorts. I quickly began to walk towards my office until Daniel ran into me. AUGHHH! That hurt. Huh? He looks rather anxious I wonder what the problem might be.
"M-MR. HANS! I'm so sorry, Sir! Are you alright?" He yells in starts flailing his arms in the air.
"I-I'm fine. I might be skinny but it'd take more than that to take me down." I comment as I rub the area of contact a little. "Anyway what's the matter? You seem to be in a hurry."
"Ah! Yes, Mr. Hans. I have something to tell you. We're having a new staff member working here and you've been assigned to guide her. Our superior told me to tell you to show her around town and make her feel welcome since she is from the mainland. She'll be arriving in a few weeks or so but he wanted to be prepared."
"Well that's fine I'll just…wait." I suddenly pause mid-sentence. "Did you say 'her'? You did…didn't you? SHE'S A FEMALE?"
Suddenly everyone turns around and stares at me. I didn't realise I had let out such a loud yell just then but when it comes to this subject I can't help it; Women. I am very bad with women…no, I am hopeless when it comes to women. It's only fair that I'd be allowed to scream at this volume when it is regarding this topic. What am I going to do? I have to be her guide? I know I'm just going to be utterly useless. I'm just going to get mental blanks and be very flustered the whole time. I don't know what my boss is thinking! Can I refuse…no, I probably can't. Then…then what now? I can't fix my problem in less than a few weeks. Heck, it took me nearly 3 years to speak in public properly. I need help.
"M-mr. Hans! Are you alright?" Daniel drops his papers in anxiety. "I can get you some water if you want."
"I'm fine. I just need…some time alone to think right now." I lift up my hand to stop him from helping me and then tread on towards my office. Wait…it should be fine if she was a significantly older woman with a family of her own already. I won't get nervous around something like that.
"Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaans~" A gleeful voice came from behind me.
"I know this annoying voice." I turn around to greet the figure behind me. "Hello, Gillian. Skipping work again I see."
"Boooo! Don't be like that Hans~" She pouts. "Anyway, I heard you'll be escorting a real hottie around town soon. Rumour has it that she's a young and voluptuous beauty with a great character to boot."
"W-whaaaa?" I jump back in shock. Just want I WASN'T hoping for.
"Did I say it weirdly?" Gillian asks looking confuse. "Okay how about this…she's young, super cute and is really nice. Plus she has a kick ass bod and a banging rack the size of two giga bombs. Is that more helpful?"
"Oh god." I manage to squeak.
"Aren't you lucky Hans? You get to spend alone time with a sexy bombshell." Gillian smiles at me obliviously.
"W-wait…how can you be so sure that she even looks like that?" I ask nervously, hanging onto a small thread of hope.
"Well I'm going to go get some food now. I'll see you later Hans." Gillian calls out from a distance already walking towards the exit. Seems like she didn't hear me.
I stare is disbelief as Gillian walks away. Ahhh…this is bad. Even though I think my problem has improved over the last few years I can't just have a single thrown onto me like that. I'm still unprepared. I don't even know what she looks like or what she likes. What am I suppose to talk about with her? I don't want to look like an idiot in front of her. I need help. Are there any books that I can read to give me tips? I could ask my friends…but their advice so far hasn't really been adequate. The only way I can cure this is…to practice right? Ughh but I've already attempted this before. I'm only comfortable around Annie…but she isn't much of a girl. She's lacking so much allure that I forget she's a female sometimes. Plus she's also very childish and probably doesn't know a thing about being a 'sexy bombshell' Maybe…if I get her to wear a dress it'd make the situation more believable? I doubt it but should I ask for Annie's help? Well…it's not like I have anything else to go on right now. Okay, I will ask for her assistance later. That's it! This could be the opportunity I've been searching for to cure this awkward problem of mine. Maybe I can also fix the effects of social isolation on my personality. I can probably be able to shop for my own fashionable clothes, be confident in front of the public, talk to women a-and even get a girlfriend. I've decided! I will make it my mission to fix this dilemma of mine before this girl comes! I will transform into a real Casanov- NO! That's just too embarrassing! Anyway…I guess I'll start this tomorrow.
