The day had been a successful one though from the look on the young woman's face, you couldn’t ever tell. She looked completely distraught as if she hadn't just closed the biggest deal in her life. The kind of deal that could mean great things for her in her career. She was easy to spot sulking among the overjoyed crowd being one of the only woman and a head taller than even most of the men. She dragged her feet along feeling upset at having to be part of this celebration when she clearly wasn't in the mood to celebrate. She looked odd in the crowd with her eyes glued to the ground as if it were the most interesting thing in the room.

"Miss Mathews," she heard her boss call to her and looked up instantly. Suppressing the urge to roll her eyes at her own reaction, she turned delicately to face him.

"Yes, sir," she replied forcing a smile on her face. It was a terrible attempt and instead of a smile, she ended up with a weird pained look on her face but either her boss didn't notice or didn't care at all. His expression remained the usual passive one that he always wore when he was addressing an employee.

"That was a good job out there today. You made some smart moves without which the deal would never have been possible. Congratulations Lilly," his manner was as usual cold and distant. He wasn't giving her that bored look of his so she could tell that he was in fact impressed by her work. The fact that he'd used her first name would have gotten her excited a few weeks ago but nothing seemed to be doing the trick since she left home.
