Introduction

Huntingdon Place is a large building in London, there are around 1000 offices all of which cater for their own businesses inside the big, bold, minimalistic and sophisticated building. Everywhere you turn there is a man in a dapper suit with a briefcase, and a woman in a pencil skirt and fine looking jacket with a folder or two. Every single one of them under the Huntingdon Place roof holds their own secret. A debt problem, loss of a client, the fear their firm or business may go into administration. Troubles of all sorts live in Huntingdon Place, but the choice is yours what they are...

Stephanie Arden

I open the door to my office and slam it behind me, leaning against it and breathing in. I slowly walk towards my desk and sit down. It had been a tiring, stressful day at Huntingdon Place. Not any more than it always is though, I had had enough, I was thinking of moving my office. It's so crowded and so many ignorant, snooty people around.
I logged onto my computer and I notice a post-it note stuck on my keyboard. Of course, I knew by the writing who it was, so I left my desk and walked into Sophie's room.
"Sophie darling you didn't let anyone in while I was in the lobby did you? Only I was gone a mere few minutes and I just found this on my keyboard." I showed her the post-it.

Sophie Dean

I look at the post-it and read it aloud.
"Come meet me at the lobby, 6.00 sharp." I look at the clock and it's 5.30.
"No, Miss Arden, nobody at all, or so I didn't hear. I'm so sorry, I should've been-"

Stephanie Arden

"Sophie, Sophie, BREATHE. It's okay, I know who it is."

Sophie

"Are you sure? It's unnamed..." I look a bit unsure.

Stephanie

"Yes, I'm sure, do not doubt my knowledge thank you very much. Check my emails, I'm going to touch up my makeup before I go to the lobby. Return any calls for me, forward any mail to my clients, you know the rest. Oh and stamp the cheque over there since I won't be here to sign. There's a good girl." And with that I'm out of her room topping up my makeup - Aurelique only, of course - and I'm down the stairs, waiting for 'them' in the lobby.

Cassia Bishop

I push open the glass double doors, into the lobby. I look on my phone, 'Floor 5, Office 2b.' I proceed to the elevator when the doors open four others push their way past me to get in. Once I get in I wait for someone to press a button. No one does. So I press 5. The doors close and the elevator ascends to floor 5. The elevator stops at floor 3 though as two people walk in, there is no room at all, so I hope if the elevator goes to floor 4 people will get out. The elevator doesn't stop at floor 4 and stops at floor 5, my stop. When I get out the elevator I look at my phone, underneath the first message is 'Report to Office 2a on Floor 5 first,' so I walk up the corridor. I find Office 2a and I knock on the door.

Maria Reyes

I look up at the sound of the door knocking.
"Come in." I say.

Cassia

I hear roughly someone saying come in so I open the door, to a tidy and modern office. I see behind a computer a woman who's beginning to stand up.

Maria

I stand up.
"Hello, you must be Cassia Bishop, I'm Maria Reyes." I say politely

Cassia

"Hello, yes I am Cassia. I'm guessing your my boss?" I say hoping that I'm not sounding rude.

Maria

"Yes, yes. Now I see you got my messages. And also in your office they'll be another worker there, he's just coming at a later time today." I say.

Cassia

"Okay, shall I get to my office?" I ask.

Maria

"Yes please, I think there is some folders in your desk and you might have a e-mail or two." I say.

Cassia

"Okay, thank you Maria." I say and then I leave her office closing the door and I open the door of Office 2b.

Sophie Dean

Miss Arden left and I slowly open email after email, stamp letter after letter, and in the end I start returning missed calls on behalf of Miss Arden... Client... After client... After client.

I start thinking about my future. I wonder if I'm going to be sat at this desk forever, if this is what I really want to do with my life for however long. I say to myself I've had enough. Mind you, I say that a lot and not a lot happens to resolve it. I really do think I'll be here forever more.
I hang up on the client and start dialling a new number.

"Oh hello, yes this is Miss Sophie Dean, Stephanie Arden's PA and secretary, I'm returning your call about a new order on..." I scroll down my computer to find the order "...multi foundation packs x10 and 30 tester lipsticks for your store. *pause* Yes of course, I'll let her know. *pause* I'm sorry she's out at the moment and I'm not sure when she'll be back, you're better off calling her directly or *gets cut off from sentence* ... Well I'm sorry you feel that way sir but if you think being like that is going to increase your chances of ripping Aurelique Cosmetics off then you have another thing coming!"

I hang up. I know I've probably cost Miss Arden a client, if she finds out... I'm in deep trouble...

Cassia

I open the door of Office 2b. It's almost like Maria's except one desk is completely bare, only a computer, phone and some storage for folders. I see the other desk, it has four pieces of paper neatly stacked up. That must be the desk of my colleague. I place my bag on the desk and sit down, I turn on my computer. I log in with the account Maria made me before I started and logged on the e-mail she started up for me too.

Charlotte Sutton

I sit at my desk, looking through e-mails, when the phone rings. I pick up.
"Hello, Blue's Fashion & Modelling Agency, how can help?..... Elizabeth McHenry, is one of the models, yes...... I think she's busy at the moment..... No, I haven't seen her lately..... I'll try to get into contact with her now." I say.

I pick up my iPhone from the desk and scroll through the contacts until I find Elizabeth McHenry. I write a new message saying:
Hi, Elizabeth this is Charlotte, the secretary of Rebecca Blue, your boss, I have a client who would like you in a photo shoot next Thursday at noon. I need to know if your available that date ASAP.
I send the message hoping she'll answer right away. She doesn't, then the client speaks up again.
"No, she hasn't answered but I call you back as soon as she has answered, okay?..... Okay."

The client hangs up and I then send a e-mail to Rebecca Blue:
Hello, Miss Blue, I just got a call from I client asking for Elizabeth McHenry and I just want to know if you know if she's is available next Thursday. If so tell me tomorrow or tonight.
I send the e-mail. I get out the 'Client Diary' and write in all the new clients that I got today.

Marcus Clarksword

I walk down the corridor holding a briefcase with a few papers of unpublished books inside it. I knock on Maria's office door and then open it and wave at Maria, so she knows I'm here. She looks up and nods at me so I close the door and go into my office. When I open the door I see a girl almost jumping at the sight of me. After standing there for I moment I then realise it's the new publisher/editor. Her gaze is still sight at me so I nod and say
"Hello... Cassia isn't it?"

Cassia

"Yes, I'm Cassia." I say "And you are...?"

Marcus

"I'm Marcus. Nice to meet you Cassia." I say then I sight at my desk and place the briefcase onto my desk.

Cassia

I then nod and look back at my screen. I open up a e-mail from Jennifer Lynn Barnes, saying
Hello, is this Ashtree Publishers? If this is I have a book that I'd like published by Ashtree. Thank you.
I open up a new e-mail to Jennifer saying,
Hello, yes, this is Ashtree Publishers. What book would you like publish? Also can you send a copy of the book in case it needs editing.
I send the e-mail.

Charlotte

After five minutes of my scribbling in names my phone vibrates. I put down the book and pen and pick up my phone. It's a message from Elizabeth saying:

Next thursday i think im free. Where is the place and what am i modelling for??

I send a message saying: Your modelling for a photo shoot in Heat Magazine and it'll be at 36 Crown Street.

A minutes later she says: Kk.

I put my phone down and redial the number that called for Elizabeth on the phone.

"Hello, this is Blue's Fashion & Modelling Agency, this number called for Elizabeth McHenry to model for Heat Magazine and yes, she is available at that time. ...... Good bye." I put the phone down and carry on scribbling names down.
