Things could not have started off much worse if it had been planned. My first day at work was a complete disaster! Not only did I mess up the computer database, I managed to spill scalding hot coffee over a colleague's important report. Rushing to grab as much kitchen roll from the small kitchenette as I could— I bumped into you full force, nearly knocking you over. The cold look in your eyes was enough to freeze the sun. You spoke harsh words to me before brushing me off as if I was an annoying flea as I tried to apologise. I felt humiliated and wanted to run out of that office so fast. But I couldn't—the chains of life that had wrapped themselves around my throat bound me. Bills and a mortgage to pay meant I had to hold back the tears and swallow my pride. I thought about you for the rest of the day. How could somebody with such beauty be such a bitch? I prayed that I would never have to see you again. Little did I know that prayer was never going to be answered, as I found out later that day, to my dismay, you were my new boss.
