The Proposal Sample
When Julie got to work on Tuesday morning, she felt a little groggy. Given a chance, she would have wanted to go back home. There was nothing more appealing than a lazy day in bed especially on that particular day. She walked into her office with her coffee in hand sniffing every so often. She had barely sat down when Dana poked her head through her door.
“Morning,” she greeted cheerfully. Julie looked up and grunted.
“Morning,” Julie replied. Dana smiled and walked into the office.
“You don’t look like you’re having a very good morning,” Dana said as she walked towards Julie’s desk. Julie looked up and pulled out a box of Kleenex from her bag before she pulled a tissue. Dana frowned at her. “You are going back home,” she demanded as she leaned back. Julie looked at her boss and shook her head.
“I have two meetings today,” she said in a lazy groggy voice.
“Well, delegate that…better yet, let me do that for you. You need to have some rest,” Dana said. Julie sneezed and then blew her nose. “Scratch that, a lot of rest,” she added as she looked at her. Julie lifted the cup to her lips, but she had barely taken a sip when Dana pulled the cup away.
“What?” Julie asked as she looked at her.
“You know what? I’m taking you home,” she said helping Julie to stand up. Julie looked at Dana and rolled her eyes.
“It’s just a flu,” she groaned.
“I know. I can’t risk the entire workforce just because you don’t know when to take a break,” Dana said as she grabbed Julie’s keys from the table. “Give me your phone,” she ordered. The two were now making their way down the hallway to the elevator. She handed her the phone.
“I’m fine babe. It’s just the flu,” Julie argued, hoping that Steven had heard her. Dana gave her a judgmental look and put her hand up, then went on scare mongering on Steven. Anyone who listened to Dana would have thought Julie had cancer or even something more serious. When they got to the parking lot, Julie looked at her boss. “I can drive myself home.”
“Are you kidding me? You think I don’t know about the pill you popped earlier?” Dana asked. Julie raised one eyebrow over the other.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” she said innocently. Dana smiled.
“Everyone knows about Marge’s magic flu pill. And we’ve all had it,” she winked. Marge was the company secretary and probably the oldest employee at the realty. She was always out to help and when she saw Julie walking in sniffling a sneeze and blowing her nose on a dozen Kleenex tissues, she had given her one of her flu medication she always kept handy.
“You have?” Julie asked.
“Girl, you haven’t worked for me until you popped one of Marge’s pills,” Dana said smiling. “And we all know how drowsy it can make you. Matter of fact, I am guessing you are pretty darn sleepy now.”
“My head does feel kind of heavy,” Julie admitted as she rubbed her temples. “But I only took that pill like ten minutes ago,” she added as she got in the passenger seat of the car.
“I know,” Dana said. “Sometimes I wonder if that stuff is actually FDA approved,” she added. Julie wanted to smile but she couldn’t.
“Tell me when we get home,” she yawned before she rested her head on the seat. Dana smiled at her and started the car before she drove to Julie’s place. Julie didn’t even realize when they got home. She could somehow feel herself being helped into bed by two people, two people she couldn’t really make out. What she didn’t know was that Steven was already at her place by the time she and Dana got there. When Julie was all tucked in, Steven and Dana walked out of the bedroom to the living room.
“All she needs is some rest to sleep off Marge ‘magic’ pill,” Dana explained as she sat down. Steven smiled and walked to the kitchen. ‘
“Coffee?” he offered as he held up two mugs.
“Sure,” Dana said. “So, how is the business coming along?” she asked. Steven smiled as he poured the coffee into two mugs and then walked back into the living room.
“Pretty damn great, thanks to you,” he grinned as he handed her one mug. “I mean, where did you ever find Julie? She has literally been my golden goose,” he added as he sat down next to her.
“Oh, I know all about her golden eggs,” Dana replied smiling. “Matter of fact, I have her and this other guy at the office rocking waves in real estate. I am surprised they have never considered moving to a bigger realty,” she added. Steven smiled at her.
“I think she feels at home with you,” he confessed.
“Well, I like to think that I am a good enough boss,” she laughed.
“She wouldn’t even consider working with me so I guess you are doing a great job so far,” Steven said with a smile. Dana looked at him and raised an eyebrow.
“Work with you? Or work for you, mister?” she asked. Steven looked at her and laughed.
“I wouldn’t feel right having her as a subordinate. Besides, she is far too talented,” he said. “And I have a strong policy against being a little more than friendly with my staff,” he added with a smile. Dana looked at him and laughed.
“Look at you being so modest about everything,” she joked. “If someone heard you, they would think that there is nothing more between you and Julie except for the usual working thing,” she said. Steven looked at her and smiled.
“What can I say? I try,” he teased. Dana smiled at him and then took a sip before she leaned back against the couch.
“So, Steven. When are you planning on making an honest woman of Julie?” Steven smiled and took a sip of his coffee.
“Actually, sooner than you think,” he told her. Dana’s eyes grew wide.
“Wait, are you serious?” she asked in a whisper. Steven nodded and smiled. “Holy shit!” Dana shrieked. Steven shook his head and pressed his index finger to his lips.
“Not too loud. You’ll wake her up,” Steven whispered.
“Oh relax. That pill still has a few hours to do its damage,” Dana said with a smile. “So, who else knows?” Steven shook his head.
“I’ve been looking to have a sit down with Meg for a long time, but she has been on quite the busy streak for the last few weeks. So I guess right now, you are the only person who does know,” he said. He rose an eyebrow at her. “I hope I can trust you to keep it between us,” he said. Dana smiled and nodded.
“Of course. I wouldn’t ever dream of ruining your surprise,” she promised. “But I have to admit, I am a little jealous.”
“What do you mean?” he asked.
“Well, I knew you first. And my employee has to bag the hot Brit on my watch,” Dana said smiling.
“Are you trying to do an impression of some Kardashian?” Steven asked.
“Actually, yeah. But I haven’t decided which one,” she joked. Steven laughed.
“Maybe you and I were never really meant to be, my love. Your lover would have gutted me with his bare hands,” he said in a theatrical voice. Dana laughed and shook her head.
“You are crazy,” she giggled as she picked up her bag. “I need to go back to the office. But when she wakes up, let her know I’ll come by to check on her later,” she said standing up. Steven looked at her and smiled.
“Thanks for calling me. I don’t understand why she likes pushing herself so much,” he said.
“That is the one mystery we will never be able to solve,” she said as she walked to the door. Steven smiled at her as he walked her to the door. “Trust me. Don’t rack your brain too much. This one time, she had a stomach bug but she had to close a deal,” she started.
“Don’t tell me she still went to work,” Steven groaned.
“I think your girlfriend is the reason we have so many tissue rolls in open houses,” Dana said as she walked out. Steven laughed and closed the door before he walked back into the house. He walked to the bedroom and then felt Julie’s forehead for a minute. A smile formed on his lips when Julie stirred in bed a little. He bent down and planted a kiss on her forehead before he walked out into the living room and sat down thinking of his grand gesture proposal.
When Julie woke up, her head was still a little heavy. She turned her head and looked at the clock on her night stand and gasped.
“What the hell?” she gasped as she jumped out of bed. She saw the living room light on and she half ran, half waked there to find Steven sleeping on the couch. The TV was still on. She touched his cheek softly and his eyes fluttered open. “Hey there,” she said. He smiled and pulled himself up to a sitting position.
“Hey yourself. How are you feeling?” he asked as Julie walked round the couch to sit down. “You are still a little warm,” he frowned as he put his hand on her forehead.
“My nose is still a bit stuffy,” Julie said. Steven smiled.
“You bean your dose?” he said. Julie looked at her and playfully hit his arm.
“Stop making fun of me,” she said. “Why didn’t you wake me up?” she asked. Steven smiled and shook his head.
“That pill Mary gave you…” he started.
“Marge,” Julie corrected him.
“Yeah, right Marge. Well that pill should be banned,” he said.
“I know. I have been out for ten straight hours,” Julie gasped. Steven smiled and stood up. “Where are you going?”
“I want to get you the flu kit I prepared for you,” he said as he walked to the kitchen.
“Please. No more pills,” Julie pleaded.
“Just the night pill. You need as much rest as you can get,” he ordered as he put some soup into the microwave and set the timer.
“Like I pointed out, I have just woken up from a ten hour nap,” Julie retorted. Steven smiled and put the bowl on a tray that had a bottle of water, some orange juice and vapo rub. He carried it to her and set it on the table in front of her. “What’s all these?” Julie asked as she blew her nose on a Kleenex.
“Chicken soup, freshly made. Water, juice and the vapo rub my mother swears by,” he said. Julie looked at him and smiled.
“So, you are going to be rubbing this on me?” Julie asked frowning.
“You act like having my hands on you is a bad thing,” he winked. Julie smiled and shook her head.
“No, it’s the smell that puts me off,” she said. Steven moved closer and kissed her lightly.
“The way I do it, you won’t even notice,” he said when he pulled away.
“Baby, I’m patient zero right now. You need to keep your distance,” Julie said. Steven shook his head and kissed her again.
“It’s flu season. I already got my shot,” he said. “How come you are down with the flu anyway? Didn’t we get the shot on the same day?” he asked as he put a fluffy cushion behind her. Julie looked at him and frowned.
“Actually, I never got mine,” she admitted. Steven looked at her.
“What?” he asked.
“Yeah, I was in the waiting area and then I got a call from the office. I just walked out…I planned on going back, but I guess I just never got round to it,” she said. Steven shook his head.
“You need to take better care of yourself,” he said. Julie nodded.
