Asa Sweet's office was a fancy place. The desk was of blandished dark wood and his armchair was of red velvet. It looked comfortable.
Mr. Sweet sat down behind his desk. Heller stood right behind him, indifferent as ever.
"Take a seat, sweet heart. You look ravaged." Sweet said.
So she sat down in the wooden chair in front of him, blushing a little.
"Well, then." he continued, "Start with the beginning. What's your name?"
"My name" Evelyn answered, "Is Evelyn Caverly. And i heard you were looking for... For a hotel housekeeper. "
"What you heard is correct. Can i see some documents?"
She handed the documents to him, rather nervous. She could see Heller looking at them as well, with the corner of his eye. That made her even more nervous. She bit her lip.
"Well, the documents look alright. But you don't seem to know much about this job, eh?"
"No..." she admitted grudgingly. "But i NEED it, sir."
"That's what everyone looking for a job says."
He intertwined his hands.
"You see, dollface, how Maribel works is sometimes... Complicated."
She gulped. He knew. They knew. They found out. She was done for. She could see it in his eyes. But she kept her cool, looked perfectly calm.
"I'm going to read the job requirements. Listen up carefully, and THEN come to me asking for this job."
He cleared his throat while pulling a drawer from his desk and fumbling for something.
"Where the Hell did i put-"
He didn't get to finish his sentence, because Heller was handing him a paper. Sweet smiled gratefully.
He straightened in his seat and started reading aloud:
"Hotel housekeepers are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of our hotel rooms and common areas from within our hotel. Their duties also include restocking supplies, moving lightweight objects and delivering necessities to guests' rooms. This, uh, occupation may be physically demanding, with a great deal of bending, leaning and stooping required to perform necessary tasks.
"A formal education is not exactly required for entry-level housekeepers. Voluntary certification is available, although that DOES require the completion of formal education programs and satisfactory scores on certification exams.
"Now, i doubt you have the entry-level experience, but to put it bluntly, it doesn't bother me. Just don't sniff around too much and stay out of trouble. You want the job, kid, you have it."
He smiled, putting the paper down. Evelyn thought it appropriate to only smile back.
"Thank you, sir. I want the job."
"Alright. Your working hours start from 6 in the morning until 9
At night. We currently have 2 other housekeepers working here at Maribel. I'm sure you'll get along just fine. Now off you go, and take care, darling."
