fired - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Harvey won enough votes to become president and CEO. After informing his predecessor he was out, he came directly to my office, with Joe Manly, a security guard. He walked briskly, leaned over the front of the desk. “I told you over two years ago that I would be CEO, and now, just as I told you then, “You’re are fired. Clear out your desk, and Joe will see you out of the building. Give him your company ID badge, and your card pass.” I looked at him as he turned to walk a victory march out. I didn’t think I could hate him anymore, but at that moment, the intensity of my hatred for that man jumped to wanting to see him dead. As I gathered up 12 years of collected items, and put them into a box, I held my tongue. Every so often, I looked at Joe, the security officer. He stood there, hands folded in front of him, slightly smiling. He watched my every move. Joe was always friendly when I checked in each morning, and when I left at night.
Was he glad to see me go too? Outside, after I placed the box in the trunk of my car, Joe handed me a jump -drive. “You’ll be interested in this. Call the owner and play it for him. You could be back in two weeks, tops.”
’’What’s on the jump-drive, Joe?”
“Harvey Morris has many secrets. It’s all on the drive. Call the owner today. Share the contents. See you soon. Sir.”
