Kato sat in Britt Reid's empty secretarial office, swinging around in his chair while playing with a stapler, eyes closed. He was bored out of his mind.
Supposedly a new secretary was coming today, hence he was sitting at the secretarial desk. Maybe he could get laid if he tried hard enough, but that was only if the new girl was under 35.
Ever since Lenore Case, the previous secretary had quit, Britt had been loitering to fill the position. Finally, some of the executives of the Daily Sentinel decided that enough was enough, and Britt Reid would get a secretary.
Kato completed another circle as he heard the unmistakable sound of high heeled pumps approaching. Swinging front, Kato opened his eyes, half expecting to see a fussy old lady.
What he saw made him sit up so fast he almost gave himself whiplash.
Standing in front of him in a gray pencil skirt and blouse was the hottest woman he had ever seen, and that included his pervert drawings.
"Uh..." Was all he could say, staring at the woman's legs.
"Hi, i'm Rachel Addison. I'm here for the secretarial position" She said in a kind voice. Kato struggled to find words.
Rachel was around 5'4", petite yet hints of muscle, long brunette hair and bright green eyes hidden behind slim framed glasses. Just Kato's type.
"Nice t-" Kato started to greet her, but was interrupted by Britt's office door opening.
"Ello ello" Britt said, putting on his signature smirk as he attempted to saunter over to Rachel in what he must have thought was a cool manner.
Truthfully, he looked like an out-dated drag queen. Kato stifled a snicker by practically shoving his fist into his mouth. Britt ignored him and proceeded to slobber all over Rachel's hand in what was most likely meant to be an affectionate way.
"About the position, Mr. Reid...?" She said, removing her hand from Britt's tongue with a polite smile.
"You're hired" He replied with a smirk.
"Um... Don't I have to interview first?" She asked, looking to Kato. He smiled encouragingly. Britt shook his head.
"I trust you have capable hands, Miss Addison" Britt said, winking. He looked at his watch. Kato did the same, then both men walked to meet each other.
"We are delighted to have you, Miss Addison, but we must run. We have a meeting to get to in the next ten minutes. Please report for duty tomorrow at eight tomorrow morning" Britt winked again, then turned on his heel, heading to the elevator.
"If you need anything, call me" Kato said, flashing Rachel a smile and handing her his business card.
"Thanks" She replied brightly, grinning at Kato and nearly making his knees melt. They shook hands, then Kato exited to the elevators after Britt.
Rachel watched the two men leave, adjusting her glasses with a sly smile.
If only they knew what they were getting into, if only they knew.
