Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser: The Boss's ultimatum
Greetings friends and welcome to my Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser.
After struggling for weeks to get any type of writing doner I was determined that I would have something for this and the picture I found certainly got those words flowing again. Unfortunately though Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser is supposed to be one image and 200 words only and I have to apologize that I have exceeded this quite considerably but I am still posting it because I am ecstatic that I have managed to finally write something.
The Boss's ultimatum
Standing outside her office, gripping the handle tightly, I took a deep breath and braced myself. The venom in her voice when she had stuck her head out and ordered me to be in her room, within five minutes, didn't bode well and I fully expected her to say my work wasn't up to scratch and that I was going to be fired.
As I tapped lightly on the wood paneling, straightening my tie as I did, Ms. Fox called for me to enter. Turning the handle slowly I pushed the door open, my head lowered and entered the room.
“Close the door.”
I did as she asked, hearing it click before letting the handle go and turned back around.
“Your work has deteriorated alarmingly this last month.” Ms Fox began as I continued to look at the floor.
“Sorry boss I'll try and get back on my game.”
“No Jeff you won't try you will get back on your game or else you are out, unless...”
Ms. Fox left the sentence hanging like a knife above my head for a few seconds, neither of us uttering a sound.
“Unless?” I finally managed to croak, my mouth drier than it had ever been.
“Unless you give me another reason to keep you on the payroll.”
Finally lifting my head to ask what she meant I looked at Ms. Fox, for the first time since entering her office and saw her jacket was open, her heaving breasts exposed through a fishnet top and with one leg on her desk, skirt above her thighs, exposing her sheer panties and knew exactly what she meant by unless.
