Pilot.

Have I met every selfish, stuck up, self-absorbed idiot in the country? Has my money really become the only thing that was bringing people into my life? Was it too hard to ask for a simple favor from someone? Was the exception of simply caring for my soul, as I provided everything in return, too much to ask?

With my family dead and all of their wealth, now mine. Who now was there for me to rely on? I felt myself having the need to constantly check my bank accounts, check all the files. I had venomous snakes, disguising themselves as trustful colleagues roaming through my office day by day. Who knew what they would try to steal, Lord knows they've done it before.

I am so sick from tasting everyone’s lies upon my tongue. I am repulsed by the number of individuals who went so far as betraying, back stabbing me. Those people who wore two faces, the followers of the sheep within wolves clothing. They were constantly camouflaging themselves in my life.

“Another report Mr. Lexington.” My assistant Angela threw the papers down on my desk. This rumor that I had somehow sexually attacked someone last week, at a party in which I never attended, was making all of the national headlines.

I sighed, the utmost of frustration was flowing through me, “Call me Alexander. For the tenth time…”

She slowly stepped back from my desk; I turned to face out the huge window that was placed in my office. “I do apologize Mr. Le-“she cleared her throat, “Alexander…”

“Never mind that.” I was on the verge of going off the wall, “Have we heard word on my new partner?” I asked, recalling back to the memory of firing my old partner and all due to them leaking out information about me to the press.

“No sir.” She mumbled,

I turned around; using the back of my heel “They bailed, again?”

She nodded, “But, there is a girl.”

Another girl inside of my building? That was the last thing I needed to hear, “A girl for what?” I pressed my hand against my face

“For the job...”

I slowly removed my hand, making my face visible “You never mentioned a woman who applied for the position.” I rolled my eyes, somebody always neglected to inform me of something.

“Sir?” she spoke

“Go on.”

“You need a new partner, in order to complete your project in New York City. Do you not?”

I did…but I was going to be extremely picky with choosing. No matter the cost, “Yes.”

“And the press wants to see your new partner in next week’s feature.”

“ARE YOU CRAZY?” I yelled, “THE PRESS IS GOING TO LITERALLY, EAT ME ALIVE WHEN THEY FIND OUT THAT I'VE HIRED YET, ANOTHER WOMAN!”

She shook her head, “She’s not your average woman.”

I had an average woman? “What do you mean?”

“Mr. Lexington, I-.” I flashed her a warning glare, she knew my first name. So I expected her to use it.

“Alexander…” she said, “The press won’t be on your back if you were to hire her. I assure you.” she claimed, “They’d notice her for a mere two seconds. Then she’d be faded into the background of everything.”

Fine. This woman was persistent. Let’s just see if her so called plan was going to work. I could use anything that I could get right now, in order for the press to be off of my back. “Send her in.” I muttered

She nodded, heading towards my office door,” Oh, and Angela?”

She turned, “yes?”

“If this goes badly…you’re fired too.”
