APROXM: SHORT STORIES

OFFICE ENTRIES

click here to return to "SHORT STORIES"


PREFACE: Seven stories not unlike "LOG 0034", these should prove just as... engaging. Each entry has the date I wrote them, too, since all these were individual files. Just what was going on the 11th?



Entry 1 - 11/14/2010

ENTRY 001:

Is this working? Okay good, letters.

Just moved in to the office. Supposedly Glory is going to be a very, very wealthy city with high economic value everywhere. Since it's just starting out, I figured getting a position now would rank me high before the real money starts coming in. Working at the rank of a lowly secretary is going to be pretty boring... maybe this vice president won't be so bland.

I know one thing though. My talents are just a big waste here. I swear I could be a big rocket scientist or a really fancy lawyer. No, I'm a bland secretary for a boring old man. Ugh. But hey, there's a bright side. Maybe I'll stop talking to myself using this damned computer.

... Damned computer....

ENTRY 002:

Finished moving in. I've got to say, this office is pretty neat, even if it could be LOADS better. It's got a giant window that lets me view the entire cityscape of Glory. It's quite alarming how quickly the buildings are being built, almost in a deadly hurry. Pfft, whatever.

Just learned that this place does NOT have a coffee maker. What kind of budget doesn't allow this, hell if I know. I'll have to stop by the JavaHova to get a coffee... I hate JavaHava.... Odd thing there actually. This guy I met there apparently works HERE, too! Either he's stalking me or...

ugh.

Ok, time to get some work down. (Why can't it be lawyer work???)

ENTRY 003:

The guy at JavaHava, Mark Zwosk, apparantly is a janitor here. I tried not to laugh but it was pretty difficult. One thing I can't grasp though is that he seems to be sneaking into the 3rd floor. Everybody at the WHOLE DAMN OFFICE knows that floor is off limits to everyone except the president, vice president, and their guests. And a janitor isn't one of them.

Maybe he's family or whatever but screw it. I'm going to follow him tomorrow night. Maybe I'll find some juicy news to share with some of the lowly workers around here.

But I'm not lowly.

I'm awesome.

ENTRY 004:

Followed Mark. He went in the elevator, I waited 2 minutes, then I got in. It was 10:30 PM, near closing time. I followed him, though not without making a few noises and whatnot (I was hungry alright). I thought he might just start mopping and that this would be a huge waste of time but he had a set of keys, which of one leaded to the President's office! I peered in while he was looking around.

I thought perhaps he was going to take money (his job sucks... haha) but he apparantly got on our boss's laptop. His face turned from a silent expression to something of horror. I wanted to simply walk in there and see what was going on, but that would've blown my entire cover.

He suddenly adopted an expression of mock horror, where he quickly got up and made it for the door. Quickly thinking, I hid behind a pot with plants. Clever. He scurried down the hall and to the elevator. Once again, 2 minutes, then pursued. Once down to our regular floor, I quickly rushed to my office to look as though I was just working. Then Mark comes in and quickly tells me that I'm the only one he can trust at the moment, and he wants to meet me at the JavaHava tomorrow. I agreed, maybe I can find some great gossip to tell everyone and destroy our president's reputation. What fun!

ENTRY 005:

Went to the JavaHava, and he stood me up! The little bitch! I waited for my entire lunch break at least before packing it up and leaving. I gave up and got back to work.

It was odd though...

He wasn't at work today... He must've been sick.. that's what I thought.

The Vice President came in today to pick up some checks for him. After he got 'em, he was starting for the door when I enquired him about Mark. He told me that... Mark moved away for family affairs that has arisen.

Somethings not right here.

...

I'm going to the third floor again, and I'm going to look at that same computer Mark looked at. I don't know what the hell is happening, but tonight, it's happening. The puzzle pieces are coming together.

I want this office cleaned up immediately. Incinitrate all personal files and belongings and throw this computer away. Don't even tell me where you put it, I don't care.
