Secrets and Lies
I’ve been watching everything very closely and I know there are secrets and lies here. I can feel the undercurrents. It’s bad enough my colleague’s dead body has been discovered, but there’s a lot more going on besides his murder.And who is this woman who’s suddenly arrived? Julia? A temporary secretary, my foot! Our senior partner has brought her in for some purpose of his own. I just know it! She’s a spy. I can smell it. She isn’t here ten minutes before all hell breaks loose.
I can’t say I’m at all sorry my colleague’s dead. Frankly, I’d like to dance on his grave. I would have happily killed him myself if I could have figured out a way to get away with it. He deserved that and more. He’s made my professional life a living hell for years -- letting me know he knew all about my past but . . . out of professional courtesy . . . he wasn’t going to say a word.
That’s rich! He doesn’t have to say a word. Just letting me know he held that power over me was enough to make me sweat and squirm and he enjoyed it watching it. That’s what he was all about – power! Power over others.
I’m just praying my past scandals don’t come to light. The cops would have a field day. They’d know I had a very good motive to kill that bastard.
Talk about a bad Monday!
