My trip to see Mr. Divine extended into the next week and as such, I had a deal with Lorna and each encounter was just as bad as the first one. If she wasn’t shooting me dirty looks she was dropping nasty remarks about how I looked and that I made her boss marry down. That Mr. Divine must have hit his head when he decided to marry me.
I looked at her and said nothing as she continued to try to make me feel uncomfortable. I didn’t want her and her horrible attitude in any way connected to my husband or children and I planned to let her fashion her own fire to destroy her own career.
Recording what she was saying and taking it to my husband would have been easy but what was the fun in that. No, Lorna was going to be lead on a twisted dance called don’t mess with the boss’s wife cause she will rip you a new one. When I was done she wouldn’t know which way was up.
First I looked on the Internet to get a list of the recruitment agencies in the area then choose two and got started. One of my talents had always been the ability to mimic voices and after getting my throat warmed up I called my husband’s office.
“Good morning I’m calling from McHema Recruitment to discuss the candidates for the PA position you asked us to advertise for.
There was silence then a slow voice answered. “Job for a PA? Ahhh…I wasn’t aware we were looking for someone. Are you sure you have the right company?”
“Of course I’m sure. This is a follow-up call updating our client with regards to our progress. We have ten candidates we shortlisted and we want to discuss second round interviews.”
“We searched around individuals we had previously head hunted that are looking to switch positions. It was requested we move quickly as there was a time element involved. It there someone I can speak to?”
“Ahh…the boss is not here right now but I’ll give him your message.”
“Thank you very much. I’ll also call you again a little later.”
Lindsay disconnected the call and relaxed back against the lounge chair. Looking up she smiled as Mr. Divine walked towards her with two cocktails in his hands.
He put them down on the side table and sat down on the towel next to me.
“I know that naughty smile. What are you up to?”
“Nothing. Just stressing out you PA because she keeps being rude to me.”
“Lindsay,” he growled. “What did you do?”
“Make her think you were recruiting someone new for her job.”
He shook his head and gave her a rough kiss. “You are so naughty.”
“No, I just learnt to fight dirty. Now it’s to see what happens tomorrow.”
Mr. Divine settled back against her. “We’ll see.”
