Sells well when promoted.
The next morning after the secretary brought my coffee, while perusing the morning reports, the intercom buzzed. "Yes, Glenda."
"Mrs. Ronson is on line one, sir."
"She wants me?" I pictured her wearing the tiny bikini she wore at the Spring Fling shindig last month at the Ronson mansion and my groin tensed.
"Yes sir. She specifically asked for Jonathan Fullmer."
Mirán had tried to start a conversation with me that day and on two other occasions, but my brain froze. "Thank you."
"You're welcome sir."
I couldn't think of a response that wasn't dorky and around Mirán I wanted to be nothing but cool. "Hello."
"Yes, Jonathan. This is Mirán Ronson. Did my husband speak with you?"
There was no way around it. Dorky or not, I was going to have to talk with the boss's beauty queen. "Yes, yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Ronson, may I ask what this all about?"
"Mirán. Please call me Mirán and I'll call you Johnny."
"Fine. What's this all about, Mirán."
"I'll explain everything to you when you get here."
"What if I refuse?"
She took her time answering, "That would be unfortunate," there was another pause, then, "I wouldn't advise that."
I sighed. Nothing like having the boss's wife pissed at me. "I'll be there by noon."
There seemed to be a self-satisfied pause. "Thank you, you won't be sorry. I'll meet you in the lobby."
