New Beginning 41
“God damn you to hell,” Basia hissed, as she slammed the phone into its cradle. “God damn you to hell,” she muttered again as her assistant Jen passed her office door.
Startled, Jen poked her head in. “Is everything all right?”
She mustered a composed facade. “I’m fine, thanks. Could you close the door for me? I have some phone calls to make.”
“Sure,” Jen said, “I’m going to lunch in a minute. Do you want me to pick something up for you? I hear the coffee shop downstairs now offers some nice salads for lunch?”
Basia shook her head, trying to match Jen’s casualness, trying to mask any inkling of the fury she felt right then. “No, but thanks. I’ll get something later.”
“No problem. Just remember to eat something. I don’t want your mother to yell at me again,” Jen jibed as she quietly slid the door shut.
Oh, I'll eat something, you sycophantic whore, Basia thought. She was almost as tired of Jen’s watch-dogging as of her mother’s. What had possessed her to join her mother’s law firm?
Basia retrieved the Peterson motion from her assistant’s desk. If the motion wasn't filed by three o'clock, Peterson would lose twelve million dollars.
From her own desk came a yellow jar and a knife. “This is for both you controlling bitches,” she snarled, spreading mustard onto the pages.
