"Umm...Miss Hull has asked that all appointments be cancelled this afternoon and would only be available through her cell phone."
"What?!! Did she forget we have the meeting with Mills Textiles today?!"
"No she didn't mention it. She seemed like she was in a rush to get to where she was going. It must be very important. She never does anything remotely like this." Barbara and Jordan worked very hard to ensure things ran smoothly. And usually everything did primarily due to the fact that Victoria Hull ran a tight ship. She expected nothing less of herself and accepted nothing less from her employees.
But lately she seems.... I don't know...a lot happier. Until today, she seemed
to be right on top of things. You should have seen her in
are we going to do about Mills Textiles?" Barbara knew how important
this deal was to
call Tori and find out what she wants to do. I'm pretty sure I can handle
it without her being here. I have all the prelims on my desk and I know what
Tori's going after. So let me see what I can come up with before you cancel."
"Okay. I'll get hold of Miss Hull and patch her through when she calls back."
Tori had been a few blocks away from campus and had asked Gibeau to drop her off at the English Department when her cell phone rang.
"Hello.....Victoria Hull." Tori was in no mood. She just wanted to get to Brett at the moment.
I understand. But what about Mills Textiles? We've had this meeting set up
for a month. What do you want me to do about them?"
"Oh shit!!! That's today?! Damn!" Tori sat back in her seat in the limo and blew out a sigh. What to d? What to do? It was and the meeting wasn't until . She could go back but she really needed to see Brett.
Tori....if you don't mind, I can do the meeting. I mean... I know the points
back and forth. What do you say?"
it could work to our advantage. Not that I doubt your abilities. I just think
if I'm not there, they might think we're losing interest in their business.
That their offer isn't good enough. That's not a bad idea. Let them squirm
a little. Ian just left for
it boss!! By the way, is everything okay? Not that you're not allowed, but
this isn't like you?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. Couldn't be better actually. It's just there's a matter that needs my attention today and I'm afraid it just can't wait. I'm sorry to put you on the spot like this." Tori really meant it. She valued her employees almost as much as she valued her friends and family.
no problem. If I botch it up, I know you won't fire me. You... won't.. fire
hearing the uncertainty in her assistant's voice. "No I won't fire you.
But that's all I'm going to promise at this point. Seriously though...I have
every confidence in you. Go get em', slugger!!" Tori tried to sooth
but keep your cell phone on just in case."
"Sure. I won't even put it in my purse. I'll hook it to my waist." Tori reassured.
Gibeau pulled the car to the entrance of the English department and turned to tell Tori they had arrived.
well I hope you resolve whatever you need to this afternoon. I'll call you
once the meeting 's over if not sooner. ....bye."
