Hey everyone! :)
Here's the second chapter of What lies beneath!
Thanks for rating and commenting the first one. :)
Hope you'll like it, read on...
The following day, at Lafferty Consolidated... This is it, IT section is on this floor. Man, this place is huge, I wonder if...

Great, the first day here and I'm already stuck, open up you...
I hope nobody saw that. "Good morning, Mr. Parker.", the girl said.

"Good morning. Do I know you?", Alex asked.

"No, sir. I am your new secretary, call me Anna."

"Nice to meet you, Anna. Did you...did you by any chance see that?", Alex muttered.

"See what, sir?", Anna asked.

"Nothing, nothing. Never mind.", Alex smiled.
"Come with me sir, I'll take you to your office.", Anna said. "Here it is. Good luck with the new job.", Anna smiled.

"You must be Alex.", the blonde, who showed out of nowhere, said.

"Yes, and you are?", Alex asked.

"Kayla. Your co-op, so to speak."

Alex was confused.
"I don't follow.", he said.
"We have the same function. IT section is huge, so two people have to lead it.", Kayla explained.

"Oh. I knew there would be someone else with me here, I just didn't realize...", Alex started.

"That someone else would be a girl?", Kayla smirked.

"What's so weird about it?", Kayla asked accusingly.

"Nothing, don't get me wrong. It's unusual. Girls are usually into fashion and makeup, not computers.", Alex said.
"I'll pretend you didn't just put me in that basket.", Kayla smiled forcefully.

"I'm sorry.", Alex said.

"It's fine. You should go meet Mrs. Lafferty, she's expecting you.", Kayla said.
Knock knock "Excuse me, Mrs. Lafferty, Mr. Parker is here.", Anna said.

"Of course, let him in.", Alice said.
"Mrs. Lafferty, it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Alex Parker."

"You too, Mr. Parker. Please, sit, don't stand.", Alice said.
"How do you like your new workplace?", Alice asked.

"It's amazing.", Alex smiled.

"I like to think so, too. Have you found yourself a place to live in or should I do something about it?", she asked.
"I've got it covered, thank you.", Alex said.
"Alright. Just remember, I treat my people as my own family. You can come here and ask for help anytime, Alex.", Alice pointed.
"Thank you ma'am. I have to get back now."

"Of course. Good luck with the new position.", Alice said.
He seems like a nice boy...
... "Yes?", the voice on the other side answered.

"Happy birthday honey.", Alice smiled.

"Thank you mother."
"What do you say we have lunch together today? I would like to give you a present.",Alice asked.

"I can't. I'm busy today."

"Okay then, I'll send it to you.", Alice said. She was dissapointed. Her daughter was getting more and more distant every day.

"Okay.", her daughter answered.
"Honey?", Alice said quietly.


"I have a new employee. He is a really nice young man."

"Good for you."

"Jamie.", Alice said angrily.

"Have a nice day mother", her daughter said and hung up.
I'll make a woman out of you, Jamie, whether you like it or not.

Later that day... Maybe I should put the ballons in that corner... "Hey.", Alex said as he entered the apartment.

" or hot pink?", Jamie asked absently.

"What's the difference?", Alex asked, confused.

"Forget it.", Jamie sighed.

"How was your first day?", she asked.
"It was great.", Alex said.

I have a really hot colleague...

"And?", Jamie raised an eyebrow.

"And what?", Alex asked.

"Your face said what you didn't. Who is she?", Jamie asked.

"My colleague. We share the office, and she's like...really hot.", Alex smiled.
"Well, looks like work and pleasure DO go together after all.", Jamie said.

"We'll see. What's all this? The ballons and drinks are everywhere. And, is that a keg?", Alex asked.

"I'm throwing a party, it's my birthday today.", Jamie smiled.

"Oh, happy birthday. I didn't know. I would've bought a present.", Alex said.

"Thanks. I don't need a present, just help me get this place ready.", she said.

"I guess I'll have to find a place to crash tonight.", Alex said.

"You're invited, Alex."

"Hey Jamie. What about Athena?", Alex asked.

"What about her?"

"She's your...girlfriend?"

"Yeah, is that a problem?", Jamie accusingly asked.

"No, of course not. I was just asking.", Alex said.

"Alright, grab that keg, move it over there.", Jamie said.
Later that evening... "Happy birthday, love. You threw another amazing party.", Athena said. "I love you.", Jamie said.

"I love you too.", Athena smiled.

"I won't let my mother ruin this.", Jamie said angrily.

"I know.", Athena whispered.

"I'll go check if everyone are having a good time.", Jamie said.
"Relax. Look at them. They're fine.", Athena said. "Especially Alex.", Athena pointed.

"Yeah, he's in his element.", Jamie said.

"Looks like you've got yourself a playboy roommate.", Athena giggled.

"Wait here.", she added.
"Excuse me, people! I'd like to make a toast to Jamie, our friend who's always there for us, who always says the right things, and who throws the best parties, and who's now officialy old! Happy birthday Jamie!", Athena smiled.

"Happy birthday!", everyone shouted.
"Jamie, why don't you play something?", someone asked.

"Yeah, play something.", Athena said.

"She can play an instrument?", Alex asked.

"Oh yeah. Listen and enjoy.", Athena smiled.
"One more J, come on!", someone shouted.

"No, that's enough.", Jamie giggled.

"Hey, let's spin the bottle!", Athena suggested.

"Oh come on.", Jamie said.
And so the party went on and on...They spinned the bottle, sang karaoke, Jamie played a few more songs, they woke up the neighbours, almost got in a fight with one of them, continued the party after the neighbour left, and then... "The keg is empty.", Athena said.

"Alex left another one somewhere. Where is he?", Jamie asked.

"I don't know.", Athena shrugged.
"Alex!", Jamie shouted as she entered the room.

"Oh, sorry, I'll leave now.", she said.
"No, it's okay, you can join us!", the girl said excitedly.

"I'm good, thanks.", Jamie smiled.

"You needed something?", Alex giggled.

"Yeah, the keg is empty."

"I'll refill it.", Alex smiled.

"Let's go cupcake.", he said as he took the redhead's hand and left.
Much, much later...

Doorbell rings.
"Someone's at the door people.", the girl said. "Yeeeeah, I'll get it.", she said. "Hello, I'm Jamie's friend. I told her I'd be late.", the man said.

"Yeah, sure. Come in.", the girl smiled.
"Smile for the camera Jamie!", the man said. "He's got a picture of me and Athena! If that gets around...It can't be shown in public!", Jamie yelled. She was terrified. "I got him!", Alex shouted. Everyone stood firmly as punching sounds came from the hallway. Jamie rushed there to stop them, when... "Damn it Alex. I said stop him, not knock him out.", Jamie said.

"What are we going to do now?", she asked.

"I have no idea...", Alex said seriously.
