one in the office hated her but most people didn show it so as not to get in her bad books. She had a special dislike for Ivy because she had been envious of her relationship with Dan and had even made a move on him whilst they were still together

The room suddenly fell silent as every other person in the room gasped collectively

”I assume you have the files already, Tasha. We wouldn want to keep the boss waiting now. Would we? ” Lizzy said out loud enough for everyone in the room to hear while sending a scowl in Tashas direction.

”Welcome, love, ” Lizzy, Ivys office bestie said with a smile spreading on her face as she moved in to give her a warm hug. Lizzy was also a marketer at the company; she was the one person that made sharing an office space not so bad for Lizzy, and also the only person that could call Tasha out on her bullshit.

”T-thank you ” Ivy stuttered, still trying to get over the shock of what Tasha had just done. She looked around the office space she shared with eight other people- the way everyone struggled to talk above the other person, the smell of sweat she had to endure, the broken air conditioning system they had complained about severally, the shared refrigerator where your lunch could get missing; she had always hated sharing an office with people. Apart from the lack of privacy, so many unbefitting jobs were given to them- despite their academic qualifications. Since the day Ivy stepped into her immediate bosss fully furnished and air-conditioned office, she had always dreamt of having her personal office space.

”Oh! You should see Joan, she says she has a package for you ” Lizzy called out to her from her desk

”A package? What could it be ” Ivy wondered out loud as she left her office for the reception

”Lizzy says you have a package for me, ” Ivy said moving toward Joan

”Yes, yes! I tried to inform you when you came in but you walked away so quickly ” Joan replied handing out an envelope to her

”Whats in it ” Ivy wondered out loud

”I don know darling! The boss said to make sure you receive it in person ” Joan said in her cherry voice while smiling, causing Ivy to wonder how she never got tired of smiling despite the outrageous number of crazy people she had to welcome to the office building each day

”Thank you, ” Ivy said as she tore the envelope open

Ivy felt like she was starting at a word puzzle and the first words she saw were ”congratulations ” and ”promotion ”. She immediately read through the letter and screamed when she saw that it was signed by the almighty Richard Stone

”Is everything alright? ” Joan asked, her eyebrows furrowed in worry

”I just got promoted ” Ivy screamed again, not bothered by the questioning looks she got from the people around.
