On Thursday when I got to work, I walked past Amanda on my way to my office. She avoided eye contact with me and I thought about confronting her about lying to Whitney. The fact that she was gossiping about me, a director, was not okay and I needed her to know that. But then I thought it might cause more drama than it’s worth and she will be gone once the summer is over. Still pissed at her though.
Before I could get to my office, Diana shouted my name.
“Reese! Come in here!”
She sounded excited so I rushed into her office. She looked ecstatic.
“I just got the email from Martin. They want to do it. Look.” She showed me the open email which started with: “Diana, hello beautiful.”
So apparently Rob wasn’t the only one who was straddling the line between professional and unprofessional. The email basically said that they wanted to our stuff for their website. There were some legal terms and a bunch of stuff I didn’t understand plus a contract attached.
“This is very exciting news, Reese. We’ve never done anything like this before,” Diana enthused.
So I’m glad it worked out despite Rob trying to ruin it. Diana was in a great mood all day meaning the entire office was in a good mood.
After work, I stopped by Kendra’s. John wasn’t home luckily so I got her undivided attention. I wanted her opinion on Brady plus just catch up with my best friend.
I let her go first.
“I got promoted at the law firm so now I’m a practicing attorney,” she announced.
“Kendra! That’s amazing!” I said, hugging her.
“I know! I’m so excited. Now I will be able to pay rent without dipping into my savings. And maybe even get some new work clothes.”
I hugged her again. I am genuinely happy for Kendra. Of all people, she deserves it.
“How did your date with Brady go?” she asked.
I couldn’t help smiling. “I think it went really good. He’s like, the epitome of a gentleman,” I said.
“So like everything you’re not used to?”
“Exactly. He is so sweet, but so politically correct. He hasn’t even kissed me. Little does he know I would fuck him instantly if he asked.”
Kendra laughed. “Don’t. Sounds like things are going well between you so far. Wait as long as you can to have sex with him. You know sex always ruins things with you.”
“That isn’t true.”
“Yes it is. After you have sex with a guy things go down hill. Every time.”
“Besides Eric, who did that happen with?”
Kendra began naming every guy I’ve ever had sex with which was really uncalled for.
“Fine. You’ve made your point,” I said. “But what if I fall in love with him then we have sex and it sucks?”
“That’s okay. Sex can be fixed. It sucked for me and John at first.”
“Yeah. He couldn’t make me orgasm for the first three years.”
I looked at her, appalled. Excuse me? Three years with no orgasm? Why would anyone subject themselves to that kind of torture?
But maybe she is right. Do you guys think I should wait longer to have sex with Brady? What is longer? I usually have sex with a guy after the third/fourth/fifth date. 😬
