i’m dressed up for my second meeting with the boys and i sit anxiously in the passenger seat of lana’s car as she drives through sunset boulevard. she focuses on the road as she calmly sings along to some tori kelly. i adjust my skirt ( picture two ) as i clutch on my acer chromebook that has my draft sketches to show the boys. i look out the window feeling very anxious. i don’t know why i’m anxious, i already got the job. i guess i just don’t like people looking at my work because i get in my head all the time and think anything i create is not good enough. it never really is.
lana parks the car in the parking structure and smiles warmly at me. “i feel your stress viv. take a deep breath, you’ve got this babe.” she says as i nod and smile at her weakly. ***** we gather our things and i follow lana to the board room. we get there before everyone else, a weight lifted off my shoulders and i can breath again. lana goes to talk to her boss as i pull out my chromebook to do mini sketches. ***** i’m lost in my own world just sketching while humming to some bruno mars. the door opens as five boys enter apologizing repeatedly as they walk to their seats. i snicker to myself, they really are just five immature boys. it’s actually quite funny. “welcome to the meeting boys.” jon says sternly as i stand up to get ready to present. “sorry, there was la traffic and zach and jack took forever.” jonah says as jack and zach’s jaw drops. “we didn’t.” they say in unison as i shake my head trying to hold back my laughter. “sorry for making you wait for so long vivian.” jon says as i smile at him. “it’s no big deal.” i say tucking my hair behind my ear.
i wait until everyone gets settle and look at lana who smiles at me encouragingly as it boosts my confidence. i give her a small smile and adjust my stance. from my peripheral vision, i feel jonah look at me and i really don’t want to talk or even deal with him today. i’m hoping to go through this presentation smoothly and just leave. i plug in my laptop so they can see the projection of my slideshow presentation. 🌻 finished in the comments 🌻
