Delightful Encounters

"Miss Pinewood, may I see you in my office?"

Maeve Pinewood could feel her heart beating.  She didn't know what was about to come, and she wasn't sure she wanted to find out.  You see, Maeve worked for a computer where she cleaned inboxes for a living.  Some people were just too lazy to clean out their inboxes on their own or didn't have the time to sort through thousands of emails.


"Yes, come in, Miss Pinewood. I wanted to see how you're settling with Amir and Omar."

“Fine, sir. “

"They both tell me you're doing exceptionally well.  I know cleaning inboxes can be rather tedious, but you seem to be settling in well, which is why I called you here. How are you at fixing computers?"

“I'm okay, sir.”

"Excellent.  Today, you're going to shadow me, so I can show you the ropes of fixing the computers.  Are you okay with this, Miss Pinewood?"

"Yes, sir."

“You don't have to call me, sir, though.”

“Mr. Blanks?”

“Mr. Blanks is my father. Please call me Tommy.”

Maeve smiled.
