It is WIPpet Wednesday, and I have been away for two weeks to finish my manuscript. I am now participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge 2016 and the IWSG Wednesday, which is today also. I am still working on my late responses on my blogs. So, please hang in there with me.
So, it is now time for me to share the books I have read, the books I am reading, and what I plan to read in the future and my WIPpet for this week.
So, here goes:
- What have I read?
Haven’t finished anything I started because I am very busy in the A to Z Blog Challenge 2016.
- What am I reading?
- What do I plan to read next?
My WIPpet is composed of seventeen paragraphs (4+13=17).
Background: Phoebe has told Peter she is quitting and heads to her office. Now, Peter calls Maria, Daniel’s secretary to find out what is behind Phoebe wanting to leave the company.
When Phoebe departed Peter's office, Peter called Daniel Cochran, one of his best friends and also his boss. He, Kirk, and Daniel had been friends since their high school days. Knowing that Daniel had planned to tell Phoebe about the quads, he wondered what went wrong at their meeting. He knew Daniel would be livid about her resignation.
"Maria put Daniel on the phone; it's urgent."
"He's just left to go to a marketing meeting."
"Well, when he gets back, let him know that he's just forced Kirk's best employee out of the door."
"You mean Phoebe has quit? She can't do that; she has the kids."
"I know that, but she's determined and right now she's on her way to her office to write out her resignation and inform Kirk."
"Oh no. I knew something was wrong when she walked out of here. I could feel her rage. I'm surprised she didn't explode before she reached the door to the hallway."
"What did Daniel say to her, Maria?"
"I don't know; the door was closed."
"Did he shout at her?"
"If he did, I couldn't hear him but you know how he is with her. His tone changes and instead of being carefree, his voice becomes harsh and fill with sarcasm."
"Okay, tell him to call me a.s.a.p. I need to call Kirk. My ears are burning, so he must be shouting at me."
"Will do. Good luck, cause once Phoebe makes up her mind, it is barely impossible to get her to change it."
"You're not telling me anything, I don't already know," Peter said and hung up to give Kirk a quick call before he went to his staff meeting.
When Phoebe walked into her department, Kirk McBride was waiting on her.
"My you're mighty chipper this morning. Then the appointment with Daniel was not bad at all. See, I told you yesterday; you didn't have a thing to worry about, so pay up. I won the bet," Kirk said.
