Welcome to Hell
"Good morning. Welcome to HELL."
Mel hates job interviews - and this one's shaping up to be the interview from Hell.
From the grumpy receptionist to the disturbingly demonic interview panel and the sleazy CEO, it seems landing her first job is the least of Mel's worries.
Can she make it out of the office alive without selling her soul?
A tiny taste of what's in store:
Lilith opened the door, waiting for Mel to leave first. Mel did so, almost running into a man in a dark suit.
His coffee splashed high, yet he caught most of it in his cup. Not a spot landed on Mel - just one on the man's shoe. "Damn," he swore, swiping at it with a black handkerchief that appeared almost instantly in his hand. As he rose from his crouch, he took in Mel's attire, from her toes to her raised eyebrows.
He summoned a smile that clashed with the stormy expression in his eyes. "I don't believe I've seen you in the office before and I make it a point to know all of my staff intimately." He handed the dripping cup to Mel's haughty interviewer, who took it without a murmur, even as some of the coffee slopped onto Lilith's shoes.
He held out his hand to shake Mel's. "Luce Iblis, CEO of the HELL Corporation."
Mel gave him her fingers, in such a way that he couldn't crush them in his firm handshake.
"I'm Mel," she began.
"This is her first time here. She's being interviewed for a position here at Health, Environment, Life and Lands Corporation - as my executive officer," Lilith said.
Luce's eyes stared hungrily at Mel as she lowered her gaze. "Is that so? I suspect I'll be seeing a lot more of you very soon, then. I look forward to welcoming you to HELL."
