Morning came quicker than New Year's Eve as the most famous time of the year arrived. This holiday is one of my worst days possible. Outside my society, gifts were exchanged and in my society, loneliness and poverty were the gifts from hell. Christmas was just around the corner, I only fear the worst.
"Jayden, do you have those files for Category 3 Section 4?" Martin, a co-worker for whom I've had the pleasure of impressing, peeked around the corner of my door with an elegant smile. It was as if he made some kind of excuse to see me.
I was beginning to see a change. The growth of those around me were increasing by the second after my recent transformation.
"Jayden, you're needed at this afternoons meeting to present your weekly progress," Park's secretary entered my office with a packet over the follow-up presentation that Park was going to present after I had done my presentation. Workers evaluation was the proper term for the whole situation.
The introduction of the meeting took no longer than a minute. The quickness of the intro drove my knees to quiver as I stepped up to the board where a projector ignited it with flashy designs until the first slide appeared. I gave my speech like a high school assignment in Oral Communication. It was going perfectly and the excitement of finally being a team with everyone; sharing my ideas and just being able to be myself. Feeling the rush of showing that I am actually needed with being used in the worst of ways. It's more than I could have ever imagined having.
The audience clapped as I ended my presentation. Park sat in the throne of seats in the back to observe. His expression from afar began to bring back the quivering feeling in my legs as I went back to take a seat. His eyes followed me until mine met his. Once the moment passed, he was next to take the attention from us all.
"Thank you so much for your inspiring presentation Jayden. I do believe we will succeed in this next coming project. Romance will fill the air this coming month. Jason, set up the main entrance and the lobby with your best designers. Not too shiny, but enough to capture some hearts. Amber, I want you in charge of getting every shop in gear with our latest plan. Mob flash at 5 on the 23rd of December. Make the ads roar our name. And Jayden," Park slowly made his way towards me and placed his hand on my shoulder, "You will be assigned as our new employee model, you will be in charge of jewelry check and you will be the queen of it. Be prepared to show yourself in the most respectable matter. I would like to see you in my office after this meeting to discuss the routes towards your very first job assignment. Everyone, I present our official company model, Jayden Palmer. Help prepare her for new life she may never escape from,"
The whole committee team cheered my name as if I was some leader. There was no way I'd turn back to the life before me. Everything was like flashing lights ahead of me. But it seemed too quick for everything to go this far after falling so epically hard. Dropped by all those I tried to care for. I only hope with being this far up that I won't die severely if I fall.
