You arrive at work and receive a warm welcome from each and every person you encounter.  Perhaps an infectious side effect of the undeniable grin that you have been unable to wipe from your face all weekend.  You float into the boss's office and deliver the reports that you had so diligently completed.  You acknowlege him graciously and turn to exit his office.  You and Ris continue to follow the path of your relationship.  Several months pass by.  The two of you share your lunch hours together evry day and spend the weekends riding, talking and engaging in mind-blowing sexual encounters.  You find yourself falling very quickly for this beautiful man.  He is everything you have very wanted.  

 

     One Tuesday morning you walk into the office in your usual jubilant mood and are stopped by Mr. McAllister.  

 

"I was hoping to have an opportunity to speak with you this afternoon." He informs you in a very managerial tone.  

 

    You are a little caught off-guard by the sudden accostment, but you are confident in the work you've been producing as of late.  You agree to meet him at 10:30 that morning.  That confidence remains constant right up until the moment you actually step into the elevator to go meet him.  It doesn't seem to matter what the reason, he has an uncanny abillity to make your doubt yourself.  You climb into the elevator and much to your dismay you are greeted by the snide half-smile of Susan.  She always manages to find herself at the forefront of any office happenings.  You're not sure if she follows office drama like a accident lawyer or if it follows her.  You flash her a very unconvincing smile and turn your back to her, facing the elevator doors.  

 

"Where are YOU going?"  she asks in her typical snide nosey tone.
