It had almost seemed that hours had passed as I stared at the beautifully modern silver sign that was planted on the building. Engraved in it wrote. "Blackwood & Associates" I bit my lip as I walked in the revolving doors and to the front desk. There sat a beautiful women, her blonde hair tied in a bun and wearing a black sleek pencil dress. She looked up from the computer on the desk and gave me a inviting smile of warmth.
"Hello. How can I help you?" She asked, folding her hand on the top of the desk. I returned the smile and curled my lips afterward.
"Hello, Uh...I'm Amelia Carter, I have a appointment with Mr. Blackwood today." I said, trying to sound professional but not to tight. I bit my lip. She gives me a smile and glances at the computer, typing something then she looks at me.
"Mr. Blackwood is expecting you. You can go right in. "She said. I nodded and gave a quick 'Thank you' and walked towards the elevator. I pressed the button and looked around the beautiful glass elevator. As I went up I over looked the people on the floors of Blackwood & Associates. Watching the people bus around. As I reached the floor I sucked in a breath and exhaled.
You can do this Amelia! My inner goddess chanted to me with courage. I walked into the beautiful room with artwork on either wall, and then my attention turned to the man who was looking out the window. He turned and I stared a little. I could smell his cologne that filled the room, teasing my senses. It was a odd combination of wood, spice and mint made me want to cling to him and breath it in. The way he walked so gracefully...And oh! That look. That look at made me weak at my knees. I swallowed, biting my lip softly.
He walked to me and now he was only two feet from me. Staring at me with those beautiful intense blue eyes. God. The look in his eyes made me want collapse at my knees and do whatever he wanted.
"Hello Miss Carter. It is a pleasure to meet you. Please, have a seat." He said, gesturing his hand to the seat on the opposite side of his desk. I nodded and released my lip and sat down, crossing my legs as he sat in-front of me. He smiled politely before clearing his throat and sitting up.
"So, tell me a little about yourself Miss. Carter." He said, crossing his legs and running his fingers through that beautiful red copper hair. It...Looked so soft. I wanted to reach out and touch it, to see if it was really as soft as it looked. I breath out a breath I hadn't notice I was holding and sat up straightening myself.
"Well, I had just graduated from New York university." I say, biting my lip unsure what else to say. He squints his eyes, seeming to look directly at my lips. Then his eyes wander back to my eyes. Almost in disbelief. I rub my thighs together, trying not to be noticed.
"I had already read that on your resume Miss Carter." He says. Just then, there was a soft knock on the door. I turned my head and looked at the door. The girl walks across the room and places a envelope on the desk. He looks at her and gives a simple nod and thanks her before looking back at me.
"Miss. Carter, tell me what makes you different from the other people I have interviewed?" He asked, the sexy, luxurious tone. I exhale and smile politely.
"I love everything about your company and what it stands for. Even before i had graduated, I knew Blackwood and Associates would be the one for me. It's a strong, loyal, and Law firm. One of the best in New York." I inhale a hard breath before I continue. "I want to be the best lawyer I can be Mr. Blackwood." I almost beg. I hear him sigh and he nods.
"Well, thank you Miss. Carter. I appreciate you coming in today." He says, sitting up. I stare. And just like that, I'm dismissed. And I just knew I wasn't getting the job. I bit my lip and stood. My mind ran with ways to turn the interview around and hopefully get a job here.
"Sir. I really, really, want this job. I work hard, I listen. I- I'm never sick! I can make you glad you hired me." I assured,chewing on my bottom lip in worry. I hear him sigh and he looked up at me.
"It's not that I don't believe you Miss. Carter..." He clears his throat. "It's just I have more people to interview. I promise we will get back to you." He assured. I sigh, nodding as I am defeated.
Everything after that was a blur. I knew my chances on getting a job in the best Law firm were very low, however, a part of me kept encouraging me that I will. Reality sucks and I couldn't get my hopes up just to have them crash down and hurt me. I pull my sunglasses from my purse as I walked out the revolving doors of Blackwood & Associates, feeling horrible about how the interview had gone.
About a hour and one Grande latte later, I find myself answering my cell phone to a unknown number.
"Hello?" I mumble out, running my fingers through my hair as walk into my apartment.
"Hello Miss Carter. This is Mr. Blackwood's assistant Linda. He would like to see you on Monday at Ten o'clock AM for a second interview." She said, I stared in front of me, smiling ear to ear.
"Very well then Miss Carter. We will see you on Monday!" She says cheerfully and hangs up. I smile greatly. I smile and walk into my room, changing from my clothes into a pair of shorts and a tank top before falling asleep.
I feel ten times better, maybe for once things would actually work out.
