“ May I come in Sir?” Radhika said with hesitation
The two receptionist giggle. “ No need to asked, Go right in..” One among them said while giggling at Radhika.
“Great I’m not even in the room yet I’m embarrassing myself “ Radhika mind blurt out the thing.
She walked in and closed door behind her and stop there only. She doesn’t dare to walk further.
She saw Arjun Mehra was busy typing away on his Apple laptop not paying any attention to her.
“ Take a seat Miss. Mishra” He says without looking at her.
She looks around to see anyone if he is talking to anyone else but only she seems to be in room..
“ Oh buddhuuu..he said Miss Mishra..it’s you who is Mishra…” She tap her head slightly for being herself dumbed.
She walked to his desk and while trying to seat ,in nervousness chair got push by her leg which make her to fall but she grabbed arm of chair and got seated on chair making it cracking noise which grabs his attention. He looks up to notice her first time.
“ Ohhhh my godddd….” She cursed herself for being such clumsyyyy….
Arjun got shocked seeing her. She was less than ordinary girl but something is different with her..Her hazel eyes without any liner or kajal, her originally red lips and her yellowish white skin…But what’s that thing which is different in her…sparkle in her eyes….which showing her innocence…
“ You are here for the P.A job? “ He asks
“ Uhhhh..yess…” She replied
He grabs the document from behind his desk on which has her name written.
“ It says here that you have master’s in business, is that correct ?” He ask again
She nod “ That’s correct “
“ And you sure you want to do this P. A job” He again ask this time raising his left eyebrow
“Yes…umm..it’s been honor to work in your company”
“Yes I’m sure it would be..”
He closes the folder and leans on his chair. He didn’t look at it more than two minutes.
She started tapping her leg against floor. He seems to be notice it and smiles.
“ Nervous Miss Mishra….” He says while smiling…
“ What…no..not..at all sir..” She said with fake confidence..she clear her throat and stopped tapping.
“ So what do you currently do for living Miss Mishra? “
“ I..umm…I work at café on weekdays and works as waitress in restaurant on weekends..”
“ Interesting..why two jobs…” He ask
“ I need to pay rent and other bills..” She said in low tone..
“ That’s impressive…”
“ Impressive???” She ask in surprised
“ Yes..do you want me to spell it..??” He ask
“ No..no..I’m Fine..Thank you..” She prayed silently that this this interview would end up soon so she can run out..
His smile grows wider, she try look away but can’t..
OMG he is hotter in real life then in magazines and stuff she thought to herself..
“ Can I ask something? “ She says
“ He leaned forward “ Go for it…”
“ I’m not getting this job, am i? I’m sure there is much more qualified people then me for this job..” She ask hesitated
“ Who said anything about not getting job ” He says staring deep in to her eyes…” Yess may be more qualified people here for this job but I will pick who deserves it.. The success of Mehra’s corporation hasn’t been because of who more qualified. It’s been because of who deserves it..”
She take deep breath somewhat feels relax by his words ..He got up from his chair and come to in front of her and leans on the desk. She feels nervous again.
“ do you get nervous really quickly Miss Mishra..? He ask
“ No..not all Sir..”
“ I starting to think that I make you nervous..” He keeps staring at her.she keep her on floor .
“ So what you do in your free time…?” He ask again
“ I used to read books Sir..” She replied continually looking down.
“ A reader. Interesting…”
She look up and found him staring at her cloths.
“ That’s a fasninating choice of clothing. Usually people don’t wear that kind of stuff in my office…” He said
She swallow “ Actually I don’t have anything else to wear, my wardrobe consist of this things…” She bit her lips for sharing her wardrobe condition with him.She wished that he couldn’t have heard it.
“ Umm..But if I get this job I will dress accordingly..” She somehow managed to some up her previous saying.
He smiles “ I actually like it..Its very different…” he says with smirk “ And unique “
She blushed with words and put hands on her cheek to hide that crimson from him.
“ That its for today..My person will call you if you get the job..”
She nod..He didn’t take my interview properly..I;m so not getting this job god….She said in her mind…
As she stand to leave, her handbag knocks the vase on the table down and completely shatters it..
What I have done? I broke Arjun Mehra’s vase..why bad things happened to me..she screams inside to her clumsiness..
“ I am really sorry..really..i…sorrryyy…” she was about to broke down in tears. She leans down to clean it up.
Suddenly she feels a hand in her shoulder. He grabs her hand and pulls her up.
“ It is fine..I will have someone to clean it up…”He says in calm voice.
She badly wanted to cry. She turn around and walk as fast as she can out of the door and to the lift.once she get in she let her tears flow naturally.
As she got off from lift on ground floor and run to the table and crash on the table which made knocking down another vase on the table and pieces scattered on ground.
“ Ohh my god…Another vase…I screwed….” She muttered
The receptionist runs to her
“ are you all right mam..?”
Radhika nod..” That was accident..I really don’t mean it..”
From the corner of her eye she saw Arjun walking Towards her..How did he get here so soon…
“ are you okay Miss Mishra..?” He asks
“ I really didn’t mean it..Thats the second vase I broken in less than ten minutes…”
“ Its just vase..I’m glad you are okay..” he said smilingly.
Tears run down on her cheek and even she can’t stop it.
“Send me bill and I will pay for it Sir…” she said
“ Don’t be ridiculous Miss Mishra..You take rest here..You don’t look well…Sip it..you will feel relax” He hands her a glass of water and make her seat on nearly couch in reception area.
She took a sip or two.
“ I should go by now sir..I’m okay now…” She said with try to pretend relax.
“ are you sure ? “ He asks
“ Yess..” she nod
“ Okay..Byee Miss Mishra..” He said and turned around to car park.
She grabs her keys from her bag and goes towards her scooty and left for her apartment….
