A Day at Work..

She hoped everything would go as planned.. But of course, she had butterflies fluttering in her stomach.. Who would not have, if they were writing a document which was the culmination of four long months of thoughts and emotions..

Four months.. She could just not believe it.. It was as if it had been eternity since which she had been waiting.. Thinking, planning, more thinking, more planning... But not a word to anyone.. After all, she had to get his consent... He. Her handsome boss. Well he was indeed handsome..

Snapping out of her reverie into the present, she looked at the sheet of paper lying on her desk scribbled her signature across the bottom line... That was all.. Now it was up to her boss... Would he accept it or not? Life in the armed forces could be difficult for a woman.. And when the boss was as handsome, even more difficult.. But what could she do? He did look a knight straight out of King Arthur's table, when he wore his ceremonial uniform and medals. She let out a sigh...

Once again coming back to her office from her dreams, she reminded herself she had to go to his office... And that too, with the paper.. Well, life is so not fair..

Approaching his office, she saw the PA coming out, and felt a pang of jealousy for the girl who spent all her working day with him.. Why could a junior officer not be the PA of a senior officer... That too, when the senior was so very handsome..

"Sir is busy in a meeting right now, and will be free only after half an hour." She hated the PA for this.

Well, half an hour more.. How does it matter... When she could wait for four months, she could as well wait for thirty minutes...

Finally she is asked to enter into the office.. And there he sits regally on his chair.. She gives him the papers, every nerve in her body at the limits of its tensile strength...

"Okay Veena, your application is approved. You can proceed on your annual leave...."
