I sighed looking at my medical school expenses and can’t help but to take a break. After walking to the office and asking for a break, I walked out from the building and walked towards the garden. I sat down on the bench and looked up to the sky.
“God, I need a job. Please.. I really really need a job. Just give me a job so I can continue and be a doctor.”
“Hey Cilla.” I turned to see Stella and smiled at her.
“You okay?” She asked.
“Yeah, I’m fine.” Stella Veros or people know her as Axel Cesborn’s girlfriend, she’s my senior. She’s nice and we met in a medicine class.
“You sure? You know you can tell me if there’s something wrong.”
“Nah, I’m okay.” She’s nice but I’m an introverted person so I don’t tell people about my life a lot. I keep it for myself.
“Well.. I’ll see you next semester then.. I wish we can get into-”
“I’m going to take a break.” I cut her and she looked at me raising her eyebrows.
“I just need a break.” I said looking down to the ground.
“You know.. you can always tell me if you need something. I will gladly help you.” She said as she patted my back and I turned to her.
“I guess I’ll see you next next semester?”
“Yeah.. I guess.”
“Good.. Let’s meet up outside sometimes. I’ll miss you, you know.” She smiled and I nodded.
“Will do.. and I’ll miss you too.” I said and she hugged me. She’s warm and kind person. No wonder boys still chasing her even though Axel Cesborn already make it clear about their relationship.
After Stella left, I walked back home and threw my ass to the chair.
“What’s with the face, Cilla?” My aunt asked and I sighed big time.
“I need a job.. a real job.”
“Why? You already have one.”
“That’s a part time job, I need a real job.” I said and my uncle walked in.
“You okay?” He asked the same thing and I gestured to my aunt to explain about the situation to her husband.
“She needs a real job.”
“Real job? But you got school.” He turned to me and I shook my head.
“I took a break, I can’t afford to pay it so I need to get a lot of money to get back.”
“My friend just told me that there’s a job but as a secretary.. do you want it?” He asked and my eyes widened. I nodded.
“Well.. I can take you there..” He said and I got up as quickly as possible. I ran to my bedroom to take my CV and ran out quickly.
“Are you sure? Being a secretary is a really big job.” My aunt warned and I nodded.
“I’m so sure, I can do it and don’t worry about it.” I said trying to be optimistic.
“Let’s go then..” My uncle said.
If you are wondering, my parents have already passed away. My dad was a soldier and he died in a war. My mom passed away 5 years ago because of cancer. It was hard living alone but I’m so blessed to have my dad’s brother who’s willing to bring me into his family. He only has a son and he’s in the UK currently living his life as a famous photographer there. He worked his ass off too there and I can’t help but so proud of him.
“You know.. I can lend you my savings, Cilla.” My uncle said as we got into his car. I shook my head not agreeing.
“No, you already helped me enough. I need to work my butt off right now.”
“Cilla, you know.. You need to enjoy life a little bit. You keep working and working. I’ve never seen you enjoying yourself.” He said as he started his car.
“I want to be a doctor, I will enjoy it after I’m successful.”
“You’re still young.. go have a date.. have fun..”
“I don’t have time for love or have fun, uncle. I just want to be a doctor.” I said and he nodded weakly. He drove out from the area and I turned on the radio.
“You know.. Your dad still has savings for you.”
“That’s for a real emergency.” I answered it quickly. It’s still painful when someone brings up my parents. They’re not here again and that really broke my heart.
“We’re here.” He said and I turned my head to the left side. My jaw fell when I see the building.
“This is Lemiere Office.” I said.
“Yeah, my friend works in the managing team so he knew a few slots of job here. He told me about the secretary slot here.”
“Goodluck. You can get the job and tell them that Roger was the one who told you.” He patted my head and I nodded weakly. I got out from the car and walked inside the building.
“What can I help you, miss?” The front desk employee asked.
“I’m here to get a job, as a secretary.”
“Who told you th-”
“Excuse me for a second.” She smiled and walked into a room behind her. She called someone and talked to the manager.. I think. She came out from the room.
“Sorry, Miss. We nee-”
“Priscilla Cason. Is that you?” I sighed and I don’t need to turn my head to know who called me.
“Mr. Lemiere.” The employee greeted him.
“What are you doing here?” He asked and I turned my body not bother to see his face. He caught my wrist holding me to go away.
“Why is she here?”
“She’s asking about the secretary interview, sir.” The employee answered and I rolled my eyes.
“Well.. well.. well.. lucky you, I’m the boss.”
“I’m not interested in this job anymore.” I said coldly trying to pull my hand from his grip.
“Come on, let’s do the interview.” He said as he pulled me towards the lift. Oh great.. just great..
