It's beautiful... I think to myself. The sunrise that is... I am in a high rise building and yes I own it. It's all mine baby. I pat my self on my shoulder and give myself an awkward hug, I turn to look around to my surroundings and the sunrise shines on my queen size bed with white sheets complemented with roses and lilies. I imagine him sleeping there feeling satisfied that, I am the reason he's passed out like that.
Then I blink again and the perfect image is gone. There it is again, that ache in my chest, my stomach starts turning and I just start to feel sad and that ache reminds me of how lonely I am.
My alarm goes off, I take notice of it, I grab my phone and check what's on the agenda today. I'm an early bird no matter how late I sleep, I guess that's part of what makes me good at my job. I rush in to go shower, I turn the nobs and it springs to life. I like a hot shower... It always seems to calm me, I decide to wash my hair today because I want to straighten it. The clients for today seem to be monied and I need to get every last cent out of them.
You see I don't depend on anyone for anything, I taught myself that lesson a long time ago. If you don't depend on anyone it's easy to see who in your circle really cares about you and who is there because they need something from you and believe me you would want someone like me around even if you don't like me. I am what they call resourceful, I hustle to get what I want and I pity the fool who gets in my way to get it.
I dry myself up and walk into my walk-in closet I look to the mirror and smirk, I turn around and the thoughts start to creep up... The bad ones. You know the I'm not good enough, who's going to love somebody like me, will I ever find the one thoughts. I feel empty, God I just need to catch a break, I breathe in and out and look at the mirror again, I have medium length hair and my skin is Caramel, I have DD boobs for size. The top part of my body is 36 and the bottom is a 40. I got a big ass for days hips and thighs, nice and round and intact, just because I am a big girl doesn't mean I don't work out. I have a cute tummy that behaves in some clothing and in some I just hope the world doesn't see "crossing fingers"
It's 7 am in the morning and I am put together now, my hair is flowing as it should, I am wearing a navy blue tight dress that accentuates my hips, thighs, and ass, but today my boobs stay covered we don't want to overwhelm the world with all these assets now do we? As if on cue my PA calls.
"Hey Miss Plum?"
Hey Eva I answer.
"I hope you are ready for today because we've got a hectic client at 6 pm today so you need to save your energy for him or her... Hmmm, anyway I wanted to confirm that you will make it because the assistant called needing confirmation..."
I interrupt her... Excuse me Eva did you say 6 pm?
"Yes, mam I did is there a prob...?"
Of course, there is! I yell.
Owww?! Its a rule of mine and I expect you to know it well out of my whole team! I don't meet anyone after work hours no matter what! You should know my routine by now Eva this is unacceptable Eva! I yell some more.
"But Plum, Did you see how much they willing to spend? It's ridiculous to even for the industry we're in for heaven's sake. This is a new level and I am just glad I get to be a part of it."
Ahhhh Damn! Can't you have Maggie meet them?
( Maggie is my partner just as good with her hands as I am )
" I did ask and the assistant insisted on the meeting with you Miss Plum, I can come along if you need Moral Support since I am the one breaking your routine Check?"
No no no, I don't like this, but I'll do it, just this once!
But I'm fucken warning you, this better not happen again no matter how much they willing to pay. We meet on my terms or we don't meet at all. It's a principle that I don't break for anybody, are we clear Eva? I growl
"Yes Mam we are crystal clear"
Good. Then I hang up.
I get my things together, wear my nude 4 inch heels, grab my handbag, as I am walking out to the elevator I decide I want to be driven today, Eva killed my good vibe. I call my driver to have him meet me by the lobby. I head out of the building, into the car and he drives me to the headoffice.
