Office politics #Friday Fictioneers

As a rookie accountant in the small, dusty office, I had to learn the ropes of the trade fast.

“Get the invoices from the previous year!” the pot-bellied manager growled from behind his desk.

He was a weird guy whose shifting eyes gave me the creeps. He was not the only one who gave me the chills, though. I remember getting into the record room to fish out old invoices.

I nearly screamed in horror as the ram stared back at me nonchalantly. I had inadvertently opened a Pandora’s Box and poaching was among many evils that stumbled out.

  5. Uma, Good story and well written. After the creepy manager, that rams's head could very well give her a fright. Well done. : ) ---Susan

  6. Uma, Please excuse the typo in the second sentence. It should be "ram's" head with no extra "s." ---Susan
