out, ” she said picking up the telephone to call the security. How the heck did she get up here in the first place?
”Whats going on here? ” She heard Mr Marshall voice saying, coming out of his office. Mr Marshall turned to face the young lady in her front and he smiled, as in a real and genuine smile. ”Nora. ” He came close to the lady and hugged her close to him. Ashleys face was filled with shock, she was damn sure that her jaw was apart. ”Are you okay? why are you here? ” She could hear the obvious concern in his voice.
Damn, she was so loosing her job, she had being rude to her boss fiancee. Mr Marshall looked at her and she immediately bent her head in shame.
”Lets go in to talk Nora, ” he said leading her into his office.
”Youve gotta sack her Greg, she was rude to me, ” the girl whined cutely and for once her voice sounded like that of an innocent teenager, but only she knew best.
She sat still at her desk awaiting her boss call, but was she gonna get sacked? No she can get sacked now, this job pays too well and it was the only place where she felt genuinely happy. She started biting on her nails unconsciously, then like a movie the lady who is now known to be Nora came out of the office with a triumphant grin on her face which made her look a bit younger than she had first looked. And please this make-up was disgusting, she wanted to tell her, but she was her boss fiancee.
”He wants to see you in his office, now! ” she said with her grin still In place then darted off with a triumphant smile. And Ashley could say the lady looked like a stupid teenager. She really wanted to pull her head off but she controlled herself, Ashley saw her walk up to the private elevator which was supposed to be used by Mr Marshall, but she couldn complain, not when she still had another issue to focus on.
She tried to focus on the problem at hand and walked gently to the front of his office. She knocked lightly praying that he hears it.
”Come in. ” She heard his voice say gently from inside. Ashley opened the door and walked in head bent.
”Im very sorry sir, I didn mean to be rude to your Fiancée. I thought she was just some desperate leech trying… ”
Ashley stopped talking as she heard Mr Marshall burst into laughter, she looked at him not knowing what he found so funny. Now she was damn sure that her boss was definitely bipolar, like how could he be angry one minute and be laughing the next. Well she had to confess, his laugh was the most beautiful thing shes heard in all the twenty three years of her life.
”I don see anything particularly funny in this situation sir, ” she said curtly.
”She said that… ” Mr Marshall said amidst laughing, ”Nora is so damn funny…she said she was my fiancee? ”
”Yes, and I realized she was after the way you reacted at the hallway, ” Ashley said.
”Well never mind, but I won have you disrespecting her again. She is one of the very few important people in my life, ” he said now completely serious. ”Ill let you off this time and you make sure theres no next time. ”
”Yes sir, ” she said. Ashley was curious as to who the lady was, but she decided it was none of her business, but her damn curiosity got the better of her, ”who is she to you? ”
”None of your business Ashley, ” he said quite too coldly for her liking. She totally deserved it for being too nosy, this was a very bad habit she hadn been able to stop. She stormed off to her desk with a mental warning never to get involved in her boss issues again.
