Adventure / Romance

Help, First Day Mishap!

So, I'm finally going to start my first day of work at 'DokiDaisuke Corp.' which is a publishing corporation for literature. Standing outside of the large, fancy, building, I inhaled deeply and prepared myself for what was to come.I've always loved writing, I've finished writing my first book by the time I was 14. My family and friends' reviews of it were uplifting, yet it got rejected by the 2nd stage of publishing; Which I expected, there wasn't much of a chance of a 9th grader having their book extolled over thousands of other pending books.

Walking into the building, I pushed a button to open the building's elevator. The English department was located on the 2nd floor, I was to meet with the head of that department to begin my assignment. Adding on to my non-published deal, I joined this company in order to improve my skills and pursue a published book.

Ding

The elevator notified me that I was on the indicated floor, a large '2' above the opening doors assured that I indeed was on the correct floor.

Stepping out, I scanned the floor; Everything in this building was top notch and spotless, I'm sure they only had the finest, contemporary, furniture; What else should I expect from a prosperous corporation? I guess I felt a little intimidated by all of this "glamour".I live an average lifestyle, so of course I'm a bit overwhelmed. Walking forward, I saw a plaque above a doorway that read "English Dept. Head Office"; Well, that was my destination.
Deeply inhaling again, I walked past by smiling faces. The department was filled with socializing associates, some holding transcripts and memos in their hands, and others I assume on break with coffee and snacks. But then there were others who were rushing around nervously seeming lost, they must be newbies; I guess that'll be me in just a matter of time.

I knocked on the door frame of the English Head's office. "Ms. Reiss?", I called out.
"Ah, Mr. Jaeger! Come in!", a soft voice answered. "How may I help you?"
"Well, I'm supposed to meet with the head of my department, today's my first day.", I explained. Christa looked perplexed.
"Well, why are you here?", she asked, courteously.
"What do you mean?", now I'm perplexed.
"I'm head of the English Department, Mr. Jaeger."
"I know, I signed up for the English department, I'm supposed to be an story-line assistant?"
"I'm sorry, Mr. Jaeger, but you've been assigned to the manga department"
What.
My mouth dropped. Did she just say what I think she said?

I laughed nervously, trying to keep my composure and not freak out.
"Ah ha, ha...ha...there has got to be some kind of mistake, right?", I asked, voice wavering. I did not go through high school hell to draw comics for the rest of my life.
Christa cleared her throat and feigned a smile, "U-um...excuse me for a moment. Allow me to re-look over the transcript", she opened a drawer of her desk and pulled out some files, which she frantically flipped and skimmed through.

Awkward.


Finally, Christa slammed the papers down and crossed her arms on her desk. She smiled...and she was trying to smile really hard. It seriously looked like she was either a malevolent psychopath, or she was constipated, either of which were unpleasant.
"Ah, yes, Mr. Jaeger, I-i see that indeed there was a mistake", she stood up from her seat, still keeping her creepy expression, "so, if you would please follow me.", she walked to the doorway and beckoned for me to follow.

I followed reluctantly; something was odd. I mean, I could understand her uneasiness due to making a simple mistake, but there was no need for such an over-dramatic reaction?
We stepped into the elevator and Christa pressed a button to move us to the fourth floor.
"Erm...Ms. Reiss?", I began to question, uneasiness growing as I was in an enclosed space with a deemed psychopathic murderer with deceiving loli-looks, being taken to some unknown floor.
"No questions please, Mr. Jaeger.", she sharply answered.
Yup, I was going to die today. I can see my epitaph now: 'Eren Jaeger, aged 19, died from being deceived by, and killed by an innocent-looking loli'.

The elevator dinged and the doors opened. I waited for Christa to go, but she urged me out first; Can she read minds too? Once the doors shut, she grabbed my wrist and quickly walked forward to a doorway down a hall and to the right.Wait, there were people outside of this hall...yet she brought me into this hall which is secluded...oh my freckled jesus, please no.

She opened a door that lead into an office which resembled hers, yet it was more organized and sparkly. There sat a man who was holding some papers. His skin was a type of cream-white, which really defined his raven colored hair. My analyzation was halted with Christa's nervous voice: "Mr Rivaille, your new intern for the manga story-line department is here!", she nervously exclaimed and slam the door behind me.
E-excuse me?!", I shrieked, grabbing for the door handle, which was being restrained from the other side. You tricked me!"
Suddenly, I felt an uncomfortable glare behind me, and I slowly turned around to face whom was once calmly reading through some papers. The man had crumpled the papers in his hands and had his eyes were looking downward; He was completely surrounded by a black aura.I gave a high-pitched squeal and before I knew it, the man gave a death glare my way.I backed up to the door as much as I could, still tugging at the door handle with no avail.
"U-um..h-hey there...", I laughed nervously.

R.I.P. me.

johansp: A compelling story that quickly became a pageturner for me.The reader gets dragged into the horrors of war in a realistic way.
