Everyone had left the office, but as usual, Mary was still working on a difficult case. She was known for her dedication, and that’s why her colleagues loved her. But today, she couldn't concentrate. At all. And that meant staying in late.
It was the new secretary's first day, too. Mary rarely met the new employees before their first day at work. She trusted her assistant to find the perfect match for whatever opening they had. When she arrived at the office that morning, she was ready for a quiet day, without surprises.
"Hey, Lynn, good morning! Did the new girl arrive yet? Sasha?"
"Mary, morning to you too. Oh, didn't I tell you? I thought I had. Sasha is a man. I can assure you, he is perfect for the job, don't you worry. You will love him. He's in the kitchen."
A male secretary? This was unusual, but Mary didn't mind at all. If he was good at the job, nothing else mattered. She followed her assistant to the kitchen. She could smell the fresh coffee and her mouth watered with anticipation. As she stepped into the room, time stopped for a split second. The new secretary, Sasha, stood beside the table, pouring himself a cup of coffee. And he was gorgeous. Sasha smiled.
"Hello, Mrs. Frey. I'm Sasha. It's a pleasure to finally meet you."
He held his hand out for her to shake. Mary realized she was staring at him and quickly took his hand in hers. It was warm and firm, full of youth. Mary felt tingly all of a sudden. She told him how glad she was to meet him and almost ran to her office. Her heart was beating faster than usual. This young man was definitely something.
