After work, Joy would go jogging down the neighborhood for two hours and then come home sweating. Joy had to get rid of tired exhausted feeling that usually stalked her after work from sitting in a chair for so long. She worked in a large building in her very own cubicle. A cubicle is a workspace; very similar to the ones seen in the commercials seen on the TV.
But life has thrown a an revelation in Joy’s face; and that changed her afternoon routine.
It’s been three days since she hit Loki with her car.
And apparently he’s been hired by her boss.
“Are you out of your mind?” Joy asks,in disbelief.
“Getting attracted,” Ginger said, as they observe Loki sat down on his new chair. “I believe he’s the hottest man on this earth.”
Joy glances at Ginger as though she has lost her mind.
“I hit him with my car.” Joy said.
Ginger picks up a coffee cup from the dark green bag.
“You’re a terrible liar.” Ginger said.
Joy grabs Ginger by the shoulders.
“I’m not lying.” Joy said, shaking Ginger back and forth. “He’s like superman; only, pale flexioned. And attractive looking and so damn skinny!”
Ginger slithers out of Joy’s hands.
“So you admit.” Ginger said, folding her arms. “You got the hots for him.” Ginger said, as a smile sneaks on her face. We can see color seep away from Joy’s face. It was one of those ‘gotcha’ smiles on Ginger’s face. “You are jelly he’s not by your cubicle.”
Joy slaps her forehead.
“I hit the man with my car for gods sake.” Joy said, in a low voice with a groan as a co-worker walks by.
“Ah, you like him!” Ginger points at her like they were miniature guns. “You like Mr.Laufeysun.”
“Mr. Laufeyson.” Joy corrects Ginger.
Ginger shook her head as she mutters ‘She’s got a crush on the new guy’, and then headed to Loki’s cubicle. Loki’s cubicle is decorated in black, gold, and green.Loki is apparently surrounded by women of all types—also no surprise—while he signs their photographs like a celebrity. He seemed to fit into the working environment with a bang. Joy went to her cubicle while glaring at the over-achieved warm welcome Loki is getting.
Joy puts her ear phones on, then powered up the computer and tuned out everyone’s distracting words. Joy’s cubicle is frankly a hot neon pink with decorations of all sorts—spanning a few years from manufactured dates—were seen along the edge or on the walls. Her computer has a lion king sweatshirt cozying it up.
“H-He—Hello.” Ginger said, holding the box with a coffee cup.
“I don’t like stutters.” Loki said, flat out.
“Ahh.” The women chime. “He’s so adorable saying that.”
Loki rubs his chin, trying to determine what he should do with these women.
“My co-worker Ms.Lawson has the hots for you.” Ginger said, opening the box.
“All the mortals here are saying I’m hot.” Loki said. “I’m not hot. I’m not close to being melted by the sun.”
The women around Loki’s cubicle laugh off his comment.
“Here’s a warm welcoming gift.” Ginger said, giving a already filled coffee cup to Loki.
“At least this makes sense.” Loki said, as he did feel a slight sense of warmth from around the cup.
“Ahhh.” The women chime.
Loki drinks it, and then he smiles, “I like this.” Loki said, tipping it over. “Another!”
The Coffee cup is broken into pieces once hitting the floor.
“I bo-b--bouught that for you.” Ginger tearfully said.
“So?” Loki said, confused why it mattered to her this much.
Ginger, upset, ran from Loki’s cubicle and went into the woman’s room.
