Sorry some parts are repeated from the first storey, but I wanted to remind people of things and this first chapter is a bit short and boring but that is for the same reason; to start the storey again if anyone has missed the first part.

I apologise if it is slow to start but I wanted to set things out properly; reset the storey in a way. Hope it is as enjoyable as the first if you actually enjoyed the first *yes, still a little insecure after reading even more great work hehe*

****************************************************************

It was the first day of my new job as Secretary to Mr Underwood, a Marketing Executive and I was nothing but a bag of nerves. I had always wanted to be a Personal Assistant and left college with the grades, but in the recession finding that line of work was hard, but I was lucky enough to get a good job in a Cafe as Supervisor where I had met Marcus who was a customer and became a good friend.

I had always been a plain person with no fashion sense and always wore my hair up for work and had a fixed uniform, but now I was working in a proper job that needed both nice clothes and hair done. My best friend Ashley who had good fashion sense had taken me shopping on Saturday to buy a new wardrobe of clothes and some new make-up for the job so I was confident enough that I would look good enough, but felt very uncomfortable with my insecurities of my looks and thought that the dark brown knee length skirt and cream blouse didn’t look right on my average body and it made me look too wide where my thighs were chunky, but when Marcus had been subjected to a fashion show on Sunday to my new out fits he assured me I looked real nice in all them and had nothing to worry about.

Ashley showed me how to make the most of my shoulder length black hair and make it shine after she treated me to a visit at the hair salon and I wore it with light waves and added light make-up to my round face where I didn’t feel comfortable wearing much; so my medium sized lips were coloured in a medium brown lipstick and liner, my dark brown eyes were made to stand out with a thin layer of black eye liner which took the focus away from the faint freckles that spread across my small turned up nose and half my cheek bones.

Deciding I couldn’t do anything about the way I looked and had made the best of what I had I picked up the keys to my old red Peugeot and made my way out of the 3 storey flats in which I lived and made my way to work.

 

I arrived at 8:45 and met Mr Underwood at the main small reception that was decorated in sunshine yellow walls with framed advertisements across the centre and a mustard coloured carpet, very ugly and not very welcoming and he took me to the second floor where his Office was; when I had the interview it was on the main floor, so I guessed that is where we were based, but apparently it wasn’t. He introduced me to the other 4 Secretaries that I was to share the reception with that was pretty much decorated in the same way as downstairs and they seemed pleasant enough, each of us having our own area and computer and once I was shown all the facilities I was set straight to work. My brothers girlfriend Amy who told me about the job where she worked here had said my new boss was a no nonsense kind of guy and I guess he done what was expected of him and that was it; I was here to work and that is what I would do and had to rely on my new co workers to guide me where I had no real experience of this work, therefore I had no idea how to use the photocopier or the mailing system and where I was a very good learner I picked it up real quick and by the end of the day I carried out my duties with confidence and my nerves had settled.

A text from Marcus around dinner time helped ‘Wishing you luck and am confident you will be alright; if all else fails use your smileJ’ that was what he liked about me and what made him notice me in the first place. I sent quick thanks back.

When I got home around 5:30 I was dead tired where I had a few weeks off work before starting this job and ran myself a bath as soon as I got in and while it was running I sent a group text to my close friends and family saying the day went well and I was happy, although extremely tired.

5 minutes after sending the texts I got a call from Marcus asking if I needed my feet massaged and I laughed; the last time he gave me a foot massage was after the long walk we took in the forest the week before and it was heaven; not only could his hands work magic in the kitchen, they could work magic on aching limbs and I was tempted, but declined the offer

‘Thought you had plans this evening’

‘I have, but not all night. I could come over in an hour and bring you some dinner too so you don’t need to cook’

‘That’s ok; I have a microwave that can provide me dinner for when I get out the bath’

‘You stealing my lines’ he questioned

I laughed again; I guess I was but didn’t answer, instead I said I had to go and have a good evening and be good and he assured me he would. Apparently he was meeting Ruby who really fancied her chances of going out with him, they were friends and he had slept with her. Shannon had told her he wouldn’t go out with her because he wasn’t looking for a relationship and not to expect him to do it again, but she didn’t listen to her and kept trying to see him at every opportunity and where he thought she was a nice girl and pretty good company he would see her, but whether they had slept together again, I didn’t know. All I knew that he was unaware of her real attraction to him.

After my long soak in a bubble bath I ate and went straight to bed and slept right through till the next morning when my alarm woke me a 6:30.

 

The next day at work I was less nervous and I was becoming friends with my co workers; a married lady in her 30’s, a lady who was divorced and although I never knew her age I put her in her 50’s. The other two ladies were in their 20’s and both in relationships and had invited me out that weekend and I said I wasn’t really one for going out, but would defiantly think about it.

As the week progressed I was still tired and just wanted to have a bath and crawl into bed, but made the effort to keep to my weekly appointment with friends and family that I enjoyed, although I made sure they came to me so I didn’t have to worry about going out again and they all understood.

Tuesdays I had planned to start seeing my brother Luke and his girl friend Amy and this week was the first get together and they brought a Curry to heat up; one of Amy’s specialities that she had cooked it the night before.

Wednesday was the night I saw Marcus and sometimes we would go to our friend’s house; Shannon and Charley who were his friends first, but that evening I entertained him at my flat and threw some meat into a dish with sauce; the only way I could make an attempt of magic before I had a bath so it was ready for when he arrived. The evening was spent on my dark brown couch in my living room that was decorated the same way my whole flat was; in beige and we ate there instead of the breakfast bar in my kitchen, then chatting about my new job while he massaged my sore feet that had been sore since mid-day Monday morning and by the time he left they felt like brand new feet.

Thursdays were spent with Shannon, but she didn’t come till 7 so I had a microwaveable meal and we had our weekly chat and catch up.

Friday I ate with my 3 three friends Ashley, Helen and Katie and did make it out where Ashley said I could sleep at hers, so I went there straight from work.

Sunday was roast dinner at my parents with Luke and Amy then the rest of the afternoon with Marcus where he was nearing the end of introducing me to his classic movie collection of DVD’s and I still refused to admit they were good although I had actually grown a liking to them; I loved the teasing too much and where our friendship had grown and became more relaxed since his birthday the play fights were even more enjoyable although they never escalated into anything which pleased me.
