Announcing the birth of my baby... my book coming soon. I am the other woman.
Here's a glimpse...
The elevator door opens as everyone heads in their direction. The office fills with people working for their checks, to pay those bills, and for survival. Even though the divorce settlement was well worth the marriage, the city called her to work and she came to answer due to boredom and depression about her failed marriage. Stacie heads to her desk which was nicely tucked in the
corner of the office. Her plain paper stacked desk awaits her as she approaches. She didn’t have the desire to decorate it with any pictures or art because she wasn’t making the job her life or part of it. It was just something to do until the next idea comes along.
“You didn’t call me back last night.” Raymond startles her as she turns to face him.
“Hey Raymond.” She held her chest taking in a deep breath. “Why are you walking up on me like that?”
“Oh I scared you? Why? What were you thinking about? Sure isn’t me. Why didn’t you call me back last night?”
“I fell asleep.”
His face shows disbelief. “Your company must have been very interesting.” He sat on the edge of her desk.
“What, are you feeling rejected?” Stacie stood with files in her arms.
“Yes. I thought we could start doing more things together.”
“Raymond, please. Did Gibbs kick you to the curb again?” She turns to walk towards her boss’s desk.
Diane Gibbs is Raymond’s main female; his bread and butter, Raymond’s personal banker. Something Stacie would never be. For she could see agreeing to a fifty-fifty arrangement but in their case its ninety-ten with Raymond giving only ten percent to pacify her or for shutting her up and once he’s done, he loses interest, leaving her to pursue his own interest again. Stacie had him coined but it still didn’t turn her off from him. He has a certain flair about him that still pushed her buttons especially since she is always on the receiving end.
