Here's chapter 4. Find out what happened after the "Christmas Party"...

Here's chapter 4. Find out what happened after the "Christmas Party"... Monday Morning 9:10 AM

{telephone rings}
{Telephone rings} {Telephone rings} Adam hesitantly awakens to the phone ringing... "Alright, alright!" "What time is it?" ... Adam:{drowsily} Hello? Jason: Good morning sir! Just checking on your whereabouts for this morning's presentation... Jason: That SHOULD be happening right now. Adam: Oh no! I must have overslept! Is it 9:00 already? Jason: More like 9:20. Ms. Chou and Mr. Sanders are getting restless. I don't know how much longer I can get them to wait. Adam: Just tell them we'll start the presentation at 9:30. I'm en route. Jason: {sigh} Yes, sir. Adam: Oh and Jason? Thanks. Jason: No problem sir. Jason: Alright everyone! Our presentation will begin promptly at 9:30. Mr. Randolph will be in any moment. Adam hasn't been able to focus since the Christmas Party. "Get yourself together, Adam! This is the biggest account of your career. Don't blow it!" ... "Just take a deep breath, go in there, and show them what you've got!" Aimi Chou: Should we reschedule? My client has other things on his schedule than this presentation. {Jason: By my watch we still have two minutes. He will be here, Ms. Chou.} Agnes: Mr. Randolph! Everyone's been waiting on you. Adam: I know, Agnes. Do me a favor and hold all of my calls today. I need to catch up on some work. Agnes: Yes, sir. Adam: I hope being fashionably late will win me some points. Let's get started shall we? ... Adam: In closing, I am certain that Randolph and Associates can put together a portfolio that will fit your financial needs. If there are no questions, this concludes our presentation.

{Meeting adjourns}
Rick Sanders: Mr. Randolph I must admit. Your offer is looking the best right now. I will definitely be in touch. Adam: I'm so glad you feel that way Mr. Sanders. Your company deserves the best financial backing available. Adam: I'm sure Aimi will keep me posted on what our next moves need to be. Rick: Yes, most definitely. Will I still see you Saturday at the golf course?

Adam: Certainly. I'll be there bright and early.
Aimi: I'll call you after my 3:00 appointment, Rick. I need to discuss something with Mr. Randolph now.

Rick: No problem! I'll talk to you then.
... Aimi: This will only take a minute... Aimi: I just wanted to say you were really great in there. Aimi: I would be lying if I said that I didn't have my doubts about whether you could pull it off. I really think Rick is going to give you the contract. Aimi: I... also wanted to apologize for how I left things. Just because we didn't work out romantically doesn't mean we can't maintain our professional relationship. Adam: I agree wholeheartedly. I really appreciate that, Aimi. Aimi: How about we celebrate over dinner? My treat. Adam: Thanks, but I'm going to have to pass on that. Nothing personal. I just don't think that would be a good idea.

Aimi: Don't tell me you're still sour over me dating Jonathan.
Adam: {snickers} Honestly, Aimi! Adam: You actually think I'm jealous about someone you dated? You always find a way to make everything about you. Adam: {laughs} I love my life. There's never a dull moment that's for sure. Aimi: It's not THAT funny, Adam! You know what? Forget I ever said anything. I'm leaving. Adam: Aw come on, Aimi! Lighten up! I was just making an observation. Aimi: I'll be in touch. {jerk!} "That just went horribly wrong" {Later that evening... 5:15 PM} Agnes: Mr. Randolph you have a minute?

Adam: Sure, what is it Agnes?
Agnes: Well I didn't get a chance to tell you earlier... Agnes: But I just wanted you to know that I had a nice time Friday. Thanks for thinking of me. Agnes: I mean of ALL the women you could've asked, you asked me. Agnes: You mind if I sit down? Agnes: ANY-way, I said all of this to say... I've met someone sir. Agnes: It wasn't planned. I met a great guy Friday at the party. We've really been hitting it off so far. Agnes: And I owe it all to you. That's all. Goodnight sir. Adam: Um ok. Goodnight Agnes. Agnes: You're locking up right?

Adam: Yes. You can go. I'll lock up.
... ... ... Adam: Agnes, I said I would lock up... Adam:{startled} What are you doing here? TO BE CONTINUED....

Thanks for Reading. Stay tuned for chapter 5 "Don't Let Me Go"

Really, really enjoying this story. You write well, your characters and 'sets' are spot on, but even more than that, you manage to nail their expressions... Adam's smirk was priceless!
