Nicholson’s Office

The black door initialed ‘C.E.O.’ opens to reveal Kelsey seated opposite Nicholson. She quietly listens as he goes on almost inaudibly. His lips move as he talks but Rita could barely make out his words from where she stood behind the door peeping in with an armful of manilla files impatiently waiting to be signalled in.
By the troubled expression on Kelsey’s face, the topic at hand seemed to be incredibly serious.

Nicholson
(slightly audible)
Yes? Come in….

Rita seemed to forget herself momentarily until Nicholson’s eyes shift towards her. Their eyes meet.

Nicholson
(audibly)
Are you just going to stand there?
I said come in.

She seemed to regain awareness as she squeezes her way through the door offering a nervous greeting which Nicholson seemed to disregard.

Nicholson
What can I do for you?

Olivia’s words ring out clearly.

Olivia
In line with Section 2, paragraph 3 of the Staff Handbook, dating among Staff is highly prohibited. All Staff caught in violation of this rule will be asked to resign with immediate effect.

A hand goes up.

Olivia
Janet, …you have something to say.

Janet
(withdraws her raised hand)
It’s Monday morning, to be precise, the first Monday of the last quarter of the year – an extremely busy period for the company. Some of us have a long list of clients to meet with today coupled with backlogs from Friday. I’m sure you have prepared a lovely speech filled with fancy words which would be impressive to hear but could you spare us the lecture and get to the point.

Beside Janet sits William, visibly bored out of his mind.

William
(yawns)
As much as I hate to agree with Saddam, she’s actually right. I’ve got a 9am meeting with a client at Magodo and she hates to be kept waiting.

Daisy and Kelsey laugh out loud at a random joke.

Kelsey
If Benji was here, he’d ask God to forgive us.

(Silence as the two look over at the empty desk in the corner where Benji once sat. Daisy’s eyes slowly shift over to Kelsey.)

Daisy
You liked him, didn’t you?

Kelsey
Maybe.

(Ashley waltz in elaborately dressed in a skimpy number throwing her curves rhythymically from left to right. Daisy and Kelsey’s jaws hit the ground completely dazed.)

Ashley
(sings)
Good morninggggg….

(Daisy is first to react.)

Daisy
You stepped out your house like this?

Kelsey’s Office

Kelsey plumps down into her swivel chair sinking into the comfort of the cool leather appreciating the peace and quiet around her. She exhales a soothing sigh. The sudden loud ringing of her office line immediately shatters her moment of serenity. She grabs the phone and places it to her ear.

Kelsey
Hello. Good morning.

Ashley
Hi, dear.

Ashley’s an average height young single female. Her glowing fair skin is the first thing you notice about her as well as her super trim waist line. Her outgoing and bubbly nature made her easily sociable. Calling her the office flirt wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. Continue reading

Morning, Walter Douglass’ Office

Kelsey, suited in a sharp light grey pants suit, strolls into the private office of Walter Douglas. Her thick shoulder length curly brown hair bounced as she walked over to the table of the middle-aged man dressed impeccably in a plain white shirt and a yellow striped tie.
Kelsey
Good morning, Walter.

Walter
(sings)
Morning, Kels. How was your weekend?
(He looks up at her with a playful smile on his face as he adjusts his spectacles.)
Kelsey
You already know the answer to that, Wally – too short – as always. It’s never quite enough. Once I get up Sunday mornings, my mind’s already on Monday – passionately dreading it. Continue reading
