The Other Part Of Me Part 2
Read Part 1:
Well, this sure is a surprise. I am not even sure why Jack has called me in his office. Not to mention how the other people in the office glared at me while walking towards his office. I think I even overheard one of the new girls calling me a slut. I will have words with her later. I am very nervous now. Shit, I am shaking now. I can see it in my hands. What is happening? Okay, I will take a deep breath and try to think positive. I have to take the news as best I can. I just hope he isn’t firing me. I finished the reports he wanted me to do. I hope that counted for something. Oh, here he comes. Finally, I can take a breath.
“Good morning Ros, I am glad you are here.”
Wow, Jack is smiling. I think that is a good sign.
“Okay, Ros, have a seat.”
Now I don’t feel so hot. My heart can’t stop pounding.
“Look, I have tried to work with you and have asked you numerous times to respect your job and position here at this company!”
Wow, is this really happening! Someone get me the heck out of here.
“I am sorry, Rosaline, but I am afraid I will have to let you go.”
Suddenly I can’t breathe. Did he just say I am fired! Fired! Fired! No. What is happening?
“Rosaline, I just can’t have you coming into a very important meeting half-drunk and then sending random messages to our clients!”
What is he talking about? “Look, Jack, just stop!”
“Okay, you made your point!”
“My point? Are you not hearing me?”
“I hear you. I am just choosing not to give a damn!”
“Ros, Rosaline! Are you serious now?”
“Yeah, Jack, I don’t need you or this damn company!”
“Rosaline, what the heck is wrong with you?”
“Nothing is wrong with me!” I walked out of his office.
Just who the hell does he think he is! Does he really think I am going to take it? He needs to just let me be! “Stop staring at me, bitch!”
“Rosaline, what is wrong with you?” yells Jack.
“What? I feel like yelling out, you prick!”
As I step out to my desk, I gather a few of the things I want to take with me. Damn them all!
“Please, someone get a hold of Rosaline’s mother,” pleads Jack.
“I know her number, Boss.”
“Thanks, Stella. Can you get her on the line?”
“Yes, Right away.”
“Thanks.” Something is not right, Rosaline. I know it. I just hope you do.
What in the hell did I just witness? I am not even sure anymore. All I know is that Rosaline has fallen deeper and deeper, and I need to step in and do something. Okay, so maybe firing her wasn’t the best way to have handled it. Damn, if anything happens to Ros. I feel helpless. I can’t even think straight now. Okay, I need to stop having feelings for her. I can’t help it. I don’t think she even knows it, anyway. But seriously, something is wrong, and it has spiraled out of control for a while now. She may need a 12 step or something. I know she is on something. The Rosaline I know would have never acted this way. But how to help her. I need to find out. The only way is to talk to her mother. I know they haven’t been close. But she must know something. I have to get to the bottom of it.
Damn, this is getting too confusing. I don’t know why Jack fired me. My head is pounding. It’s a good thing I got the termination letter in the mail today. If not, I would have gotten dressed for nothing. Damn it. I hear the noises again.
“Hey, doll, where do you keep the shampoo?”
Huh, who is this? Well he asks again? Damn, I really know how to pick them. What is this one, a model?
“It is in the top cabinet.”
Man, how much did I have to drink last night? Okay, my cell phone is ringing now. Shit, it’s my mom. I don’t want to talk to her. I just can’t. Damn, now my hands are shaking again. I know I think I will go into the shower and enjoy my lover before he goes.
“Damn, doll, you sure know how to please a man.”
I smile and just let him ravage me. For a while, I just feel pleasure. Once he is gone, I am empty again. How long can I keep this up? Well, I am tired, and I need to get some rest. I guess I will check my voice message.
“Rosaline, this is mom. Please call me, darling. I am worried.”
What is this, another message? Wait, this is Jack’s number! Why is Jack interfering with my life, anyway? I am going to bed.
Well, it is good to know Rosaline has decided to fight back and not let Jack or her mother push her around. What is she, four? I am glad she is enjoying herself. There is nothing wrong with having fun. I have told her this before. She needs to just let it all happen. I do not see why others are trying to stop her. All Ros is doing is having fun. I know this is what’s best. I just hope she keeps listening to what I have been telling her for a long time. Besides, her mother has always thought it best to place her last. Growing up, always having a new man by her side. She never cared about Rosaline. She always wanted to hold her back. On the other hand, I have been there for her, and I am glad Rosaline can see it now. I will never let her down. I will be her friend always.
