“Aish! Why the heck does this phone have to ring right now?!”
Anya composed herself and picked up the phone.
“Good morning. This is President Jung’s office, how may I help you?”
“This is Mr. Park, I want to set an appointment.”
“I’m sorry Mr. Park but Ms. Jung is booked for the month.”
“I need to be able to talk to her. Where is her next schedule? Perhaps she’d have spare time so I can have coffee with her.”
“Mr. Park, Ms. Jung specifically told me that her schedule is confidential. Disclosing that information would cost me my job.” Anya was trying to be as patient as possible but this Mr. Park is starting to get to her nerves. Especially with the thought of having coffee with Anastasia.
“Well, is she currently at the office? Maybe I can pass by?”
“Mr. Park even if she is here, the guards will not let you in neither would they allow you to be able to trail Ms. Jung. If I were you, I’d simply get the hint that Ms. Jung does not want to talk to you.”
“Who are you to talk to me like that? You’re simply my Anastasia’s secretary! Tell me your name. I will have you wiped off the face of the earth!”
“Excuse me Mr. Oh? First and foremost, I am Kwon Anya, Ms. Jung’s secretary. Whatever I do and tell you are specific instructions from her. Maybe the last part of what I told you was something of personal opinion but if you are man enough, you would be able to respect a lady’s decision. She may not be as harsh as to tell you that she does not want to talk to you or does not want to have anything to do with you but at least she tried to make it less painful for you. Now, all of our conversations are recorded. Should I be, as you say, wiped off the face of the earth, the first person they are going to investigate is you. Now, if you excuse me, I need to put down this phone now as there is another incoming call. I do hope you have a pleasant day amidst this conversation. Thank you.”
Anya immediately placed the phone down. She knew that if she was going to keep the conversation longer, she would have done something terrible. She controlled herself. No. Not in Anastasia’s company. She had no intention of breaking Anastasia’s trust. What she didn’t know was that Anastasia heard everything. Although faint, Anastasia could hear a hint of jealousy from Anya’s voice. She thought it was cute that Anya didn’t know why she answered Mr. Park that way. But Anastasia knew. And she knew herself that she was also in love.
