You know it is not going to be a good day when:
- You wake up on your sofa with a stiff neck and aching body
- The hangover is killing you
- You have to shower with one arm in the air so as not to make the watch that is
- stuck on your wrist wet
- The floor is still spinning.
Outside the building I am filled with the urge to run like hell and call in sick. Probably not a good idea I decide so make my way in.
It is 8:45am so there is only Ethan and May in the office.
May greets me politely but looks distracted and Ethan shouts "Morning." Enthusiastically and offers me a cup of tea.
They are both being so normal I relax a bit
"So how are you feeling this morning?" Ethan asks
"Fine fine." I lie
"So did you guys stay late?" He asks me, "Ted and I left about half ten"
Relief - he and Ted weren't there. Maybe no one actually saw us.
I blush and say, "I have someones watch stuck on my hand, can you help me get it off."
Ethan laughs, "Yeah here you are kid. Hope you didn't do anything stupid."
I blush and he gives me a hug
I begin to relax when Fishy comes in smirking.
"Morning all," He calls, "Kate you're on time? I thought you would be still sleeping it off."
I blush but say in my most sober and professional voice "No I am feeling great this morning thanks."
I am a very bad liar.
Fishy smirks, "So looking forward to the awkward moments between you and Simon?"
Ethan looks up.
I blush and say "I don't remember anything that would be awkward."
He laughs and says, "Want the visual, we got bored so took a video."
Ethan looks torn between amusement and sympathy and I can feel myself going purple. Must control this blushing.
"Although," Fishy continues clearly enjoying my squirming, "I think it will be even more awkward between Simon and Rob."
"Whys that?" Ethan asks as I sink into my seat.
"Rob hit him," Fishy says "Apparently he felt it was unfair to Kate that Simon already has a girlfriend."
