Routine Check


It's so beautiful! I think to myself. The sunrise that is... I'm in a high-rise building in a penthouse and yes I own it. It's all mine baby. I metaphorically pat myself on my shoulder and give myself a hug. Crossing my hands, I turn to look at my surroundings and the sunrise shines on my queen size bed with white sheets that are empty with no life in them.

I frown and I start to imagine him... He's sleeping there, with his muscle-bound chest out, lean molded packs, and sweet sexy face. Hmmm, the sheets are barely covering him. It looks like we just had one hell of a time and I feel satisfied that I'm the reason he's passed out like that on my bed.

I blink again and just like that the perfect image of him is gone. Sigh... I really wish he was here with me...I wonder if only for a while, how things would have been if he had chosen me long ago, given us a chance you know.

I feel an ache in my chest, making me feel uneasy. My stomach starts turning and I just start to feel sad. Tears start to build up because that thought reminds me of how lonely I am and most of all, how much I miss him. I wonder if he misses me...

My alarm goes off distracting me and taking me out of my sadness, I grab my phone and check what's on the agenda today. I sniffle back all my tears.

I'm an early bird by nature. No matter how late I sleep, I am always up early. I rush to go shower, turning on the nobs, and the water springs to life.

I love hot showers no matter what season it is ... They always seem to calm down my anxiety. I know right? I've had a lot of issues in my past life, and I have been through the most.

I decided to wash my hair today because I want to straighten it out and let it flow. The clients for today seem to be monied and I need them to spend every last cent they possibly can. It's part of the job.

I grew up in a female-dominated family. If there is one thing I have learned from them, growing up the way I did, I learned not to depend on anyone for anything. If you are kind, sweet, or overall just want to be good to people. They will take advantage of your good nature. They will walk over you and make you a fool if you let them.

I learned that lesson a long time ago. If you don't depend on anyone. They can't hurt you. You still have control. It's easy to see who in your circle cares about you and who is there because they want to use you. I have worked relentlessly to get where I am now. 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 those negative 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, the one who wants all of me not just my body? Whether big or small thoughts? I feel empty now thinking about this...great. God, I 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, and they have a teardrop shape. The top part of my body is a size 38 and the bottom part of me is a size 40. I've got a big ass for days... Hips and thighs are curvy in the right places, nice and round and intact. I honestly work out when I can. I have a cute tummy that behaves in some clothing and in some I just hope the world doesn't see "crossing my fingers"

It's currently 7 am in the morning and I am ready to go, my hair is flowing as it should, and I am wearing a navy blue tight spandex dress that accentuates my lower body. We don't want to overwhelm the world with all these assets now do we? Hahahahaah... As if on cue my PA calls.

"Hey, Miss Plum?"

'Hey, Eva I answer.'

"I hope you are well and ready for today, we've got a few clients lined up for you, one particular client though requested a meeting at um... 6 pm sharp... It's a corporate account, not an individual one and their budget for their upcoming event is out of this world... I wanted to confirm with you if you will make it, their assistant is very persistent, she keeps calling needing confirmation..."

I sigh in defeat... 'Excuse me, Eva did you say 6 pm?'

"Yes, mam I know it's not your usual time to meet clients but... Ummmm... I figured you would be up for this one ...?"

'What!' I yell.

"Owww," she says uncertainty and fear laced in her voice.

'Owww?! You know this is a rule of mine. I expect you to know it well, out of my whole team! I don't meet anyone after working hours no matter what! I don't understand what is not clear about that. You should know this by now Eva this is unacceptable!' I yell some more.

"But Plum, I have just sent you the quote, look at how much they are willing to spend. It's ridiculous, even for the industry we're in for heaven's sake."

I flinch like someone just slapped me... Can you believe the disrespect? 'Can't you have Maggie meet them?' Maggie is my partner, and we share all responsibilities equally.

" I did ask and the assistant insisted on the meeting being with you alone Miss Plum, I can come along if you need moral support since I am the one breaking your routine?"

' Why would I bring you along? You've already messed up... Big time! I don't like this, especially when you plan my life without my consent ...' I peek over the quote and smirk... ' but I'll do it, just this once!'

"Yayyy"...

'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, and 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, and into the car and he drives me to the head office.
