Things Are Not Clear Cut Part 18

Ellie woke up in the morning refreshed and excited for the day. It had been a long time since she’d felt that way. Maybe it had something to do with having had the best night’s sleep in ages but she knew it resulted from something else.

The friendship with Jamie was at a great stage. It was where, in her wildest dreams, she’d estimated them to be right about now. And the fact that he’d actually taken the time to ask to see more of her, can only be a good sign, right?

As Ellie wheeled to work she was happy. She smiled as she rode by reception and made her way up to the 29th floor. She met Tall in the lift on the way up and informed her of all the drafts that looked good that Tall should ask for more of. Authors only send a chapter Tall’s way because of the popular demands of her service and Ellie gets passed many. ‘Wow, you’ve done a week’s reading in two days!’ Tall congratulated her. ‘What happened last night?’ Tall knew about Ellie’s plans yester-evening, having caught her in the middle of the text to Jamie.
‘It was nice,’ Ellie said ominously.
‘That’s all you’re going to give me?’ Tall questioned, looking at Ellie.
‘He asked if we could make it a weekly arrangement!’ Ellie told her boss smiling from ear to ear.
‘I think he has puppy dog eyes!’ Tall said as a response. Yes, Ellie thought, he does have really cute hypnotising light blue eyes but she dismissed the comment as just another one of Tall’s acknowledgements and didn’t think anything more of it. She could melt away into those eyes. Thinking of this, and setting up for a normal day at work, Ellie relaxed a little. This was all coming together, and for once she wasn’t foring the situation.

*Please let me know what you'd like to happen, either in the story as a whole or in the next part. I'd really appreciate it as this story is primarily written for you guys. It isn't a story I've written before that I'm taking parts out of, and I have no idea where this story is going or when it'll reach it's end.
