-Manhattan, New York
That's my name now. My employees...gosh...who would have thought I would have employees?
A knock brought me out of my reverie and I allowed the person to enter my office. Camille, my personal assistant, entered and began talking about my plans for the day.
I have to meet with five clients, three at my office before ten o'clock and leave to meet with two others separately at a restaurant downtown. This meant that I will be back at my office at two o'clock. There are nine bedrooms, three kitchens, two living rooms, ten bathrooms, a study, an office, two dining rooms, a family room and an outdoor lounge to design before three thirty.
After, I have to meet with my fabricators at four to go over the designs I sent and inspect the progress on designs I have let come to life. Come back to my office for five and work on files.
So much for dinner plans...
"Thank you, Cam..." I said distractedly.
"Oh and Miss Perez, there was a private call for you this morning. They didn't leave a message...they said they'd call back".
"Oh...okay...thank you", I decided to not think much on that anonymous caller. I looked at the time and began setting up the slides and paperwork for the upcoming appointments.
My phone began ringing and I stopped arranging the files to answer.
"Avelyn Perez speaking", I answered sotto voce.
"Avelyn..." the familiar voice of the professional sounded over the line.
"Doctor Hale", my tone surprised as my heart dropped in my stomach and a wave of nausea hit me.
What can this be?
"I have your results", he announced chirpily.
