Angela was holding the envelope in her hands in her cold dingy apartment, she really needed this job to pay the rent , she had college debts to pay she had finished her studies in the University of California and had flown to New York to move in with her boyfriend Jacob till she walked in on him and found him with another man, her Jacob was gay.
She did not understand it he was tall blonde handsome with blue grey eyes and she was head over heels in love with him. Literally head over heels.
Angela was short, thin with long brunette hair and green eyes with olive complexion. She just wore vests with jeans as it was summer in New York and the air condition worked for just 15 minutes at a time. She had to turn it on and off every 15 minutes.
She bit her lip tore open the envelope closed her eyes tight and said a whisper to the higher powers the reader might call as God. She read the contents of the letter , she had got the job as an apprentice in a leading law firm. She jumped , screamed and shouted a big thank you to this unseen force to which she always felt was masculine and not feminine.
The one thing she loved about being female was her adoration of high heeled shoes. She was so used to wearing high heels she could even run with them and also wore them with her jeans and vests.
She took out her mobile and dialled in her mother’s number , her mum a sweet blonde haired lady was a loving and sympathetic about her situation and her dad and mum had offered her some money which she would have been obliged to take if she had not got the job. It was her first day tomorrow.
She looked at the closet on what to wear yes that would be perfect she thought. A pink suit with a short skirt. Which her mum had forced her to buy at California. “ Girl you got to get some new clothes “ Angela whispered to her self as she rubbed mousse in her wavy brown hair which tossed around each shoulder. Her eyes were twinkling with excitement with her dimpled cheek and olive complexion she looked stunning. She even had matching stiletto heels and painted her finger nails pink and looked great.
She ran out of her apartment locked the door and waved a taxi, The taxi stopped with a screech she got in. The taxi driver was an African American asked where she was going, she gave him the address as he rambled on about his nagging wife Angela gave a sympathetic grunt and stopped five minutes from her work at star bucks to buy a black mocachinno. She went in two minutes early a cute bombshell who was endowed in abundance in her upper part of her body by a skilful plastic surgeon or by an even skillfuller God.
Mary was her name gave her a quick smile and after introductions told her Derek will be waiting for her at his office. Who is Derek ? asked Angela , he is the head boss of the law firm said Mary . Angela had only met the human resources people .
Angela went into Derek’s office , Derek was tall dark haired with a cigarette in one hand with a sharp black suite with even darker eyes and dark eye brows , a mischievous curl on his lips , So you are Angela he said with a deep voice and shook her hand it was a hard firm hand shake , awestruck by this gorgeous man Angela was whispered yes my name is Angela thank you for having me at your office, He gave a smile that made her heart skip a beat and her throat dry. He gave her some files and said look into these Dian will help you. He opened the door for her he was a gentle man as well, she was balancing her coffee , hand bag and files and some how managed to go to the desk that Mary had shown her.
On the way to her desk she saw two guys the shorter guy nudged the taller guy and gave her a wink but her heart was still beating after Derek. Dian was a brethren lady she did not have to tell her she looked the part. She had her long white hair in a bun and even longer grey skirt . Dian was a warm lady and Angela warmed to her and they did the cases together and soon it was lunch break. As the other ladies and men came together Dian whispered this is Chrissy we call her crazy Chrissy , Chrissy wore a short leather skirt and a tight red blouse she took one long look at Angela so you are the new girl with a deep hoarse voice that comes with too much cigarettes. As she held a cigarette in her red colured fingers and took a swig with her bright red lips curling over the cigarette and blew smoke in Angela’s direction. Yes managed to say Angela as she choked on the cigar rete smoke. You got a boy friend she asked? Yes had one but we broke up, Angela whispered recovering from the chocking experience and not wanting to go into the details to which an African American lady standing by her side gave her a hug her name was Kiera she was sweet and compassionate. To which Chrissy replied don’t worry babe there are still lots of fish in the sea.
Angela some how pushed through the day and wrote in her diary that evening “ Really Grateful for today and this job To God , signed Angela.
