"All right, that's all for today. Just make sure that you complete your assignments by midnight. Turn them in online and I will not be accepting any late work, no excuses and no exceptions."
Everyone hastily got up and packed their belongings wanting to be rid of this room. I chuckled a bit at the site.
People were always like that right before lunch. I erased the board lazily and heard my name being called. I tensed at the source of the voice. Not bothering to turn around, I continued erasing the board, "What do you want Dean?"
"Just to talk man," he said cautiously. I turned around to face him and he was seated in one of the desks where the students sit. I leaned back in the board and crossed my arms across my chest.
"Oh so now you want to talk?"
"Don't be like that Joe," he said shaking his head.
"Be like what? The fact that you ain't even talk to me to get the full story! I don't know what the hell your problem is lately with me but you're really starting to piss me the fuck off," I said darkly.
"You should know how this works by now Joe. You used to play ball. You know how this shit works. We can't not let him play!"
"Your missing the point man! Just get the fuck out. I will see you at practice, " I said already fed up with this conversation. He shrugged his shoulders and left the room.
I rubbed my beard sighing.
There was a light knock on the door and it creaked open.
There stood Robin and I cracked a small smile. Just like that I went from irritated and pissed to warm and giddy.
What the hell is she doing to me?
"Hey Joe," she said quietly while approaching the desk. I walked around my desk and sat right on top clasping my hands together.
"Hey Robin, not at the gazebo today?" I asked now staring at her as she stood right in front of me.
"No, I guess not. I wanted to talk to you, I didn't mean to decline your offer this morning. I'm not really a breakfast person. Well actually I don't mind it but I guess I wasn't feeling up to it," she said rambling.
Her cheeks turning a shade of pink. I was a bit disappointed when she decided not to come with me but not enough for her to feel like she needed to apologize.
"Don't worry about it baby girl. Maybe I will get a chance to share breakfast with you some other time huh?"
"Yeah definitely," she said nodding and smiling widely.
"Well I will see you in class," she said turning to walk away.
"Wait why not hang here till lunch is over? " I asked not wanting her to leave so soon.
" I actually have to see someone, it's kind of important so I would rather do it now."
I sighed, "Alright then. I will see you soon then."
She nodded her head and gave me a small smile before walking out.
I knocked on the door and I heard a man telling me to come in. I stepped into the office and closed the door.
"Hi, are you Mr. Ambrose?" I said politely.
"That's my name on the door sweet heart, what can I help you with?" He said not looking at me but busy with the papers on his desk.
I stepped forward towards his desk clutching the piece of laminated paper in my hand.
"I was wondering if you are still looking for a football team manager?"
He looked up at me and stopped what he was doing. " Yeah, I mean I just hired one yesterday but no harm in having two to even out the work load," he stated looking at me squinting while rubbing his fingers like he was trying to figure something out.
"I've seen you from somewhere...," he said trailing off.
"I don't think so," I said not knowing what to say to that.
"Ahh well, I will remember soon enough. Listen this job is not taken lightly, there a lot of responsibilities that come with it. I hope you read that flyer pretty well. You are to attend every practice and every game. Even the ones where we have to travel. I trust you read it carefully, " he said sternly.
"Yes Sir," I said with every intention of getting this job. I really need the money.
"Alright, I'm not gonna bother to ask you for any credentials, you will learn as you go. Just don't waste my time. Anything I say goes. You report to me. Got it?"
"Alright then you will start tomorrow with the other chick- I mean girl," he said waving me off. I took that as my cue to leave so I started walk out.
"Wait!! Now I remember!" He stated as he started laughing loudly.
"Oh my God!! HAHAHA- how the fuck did I forget HAHA," he said exploding into a laughing fit.
"Your the chick that got body SLAMMED by Joe!!" He stated laughing even harder.
"YOU FUCKING FLEW!!" He continued on. I felt my stomach turn inwardly remembering that day. I cringed as I remembered that his drink had spilled all over me.
"Oh MY GOSH!!! You better watch out he might still be on the loose!!" he said holding his stomach still laughing.
"You flewwww!!!" he stated again clearly about to die behind his desk.
I just turned around already embarassed enough and headed out of the office. I swear his laughter got a little louder. Ringing in my ears as he mocked me.
Now I have to work with that asshole.
