‘SUCH A COME DOWN’ by JJ BreechPosted: July 2, 2014
The Big Guy had asked me up into his office during my lunch break, so I knew there was going to be trouble. He told me my traitorous behaviour had let the whole company down, so now I had to put up with the heat that came with the backlash.
‘Lou,’ he said, ‘you are being moved downstairs to ‘Human Enterprises, room eleven. You’re gonna be watching over the…ahem… non-desirables from this place, y’know, after they’ve no longer got a head for business.’
I grabbed my things from my desk and shuffled ashamed into the lift. I pressed the button for the basement. As the lift clattered down and its light shorted out, I shook my head in disbelief: From a high flyer to the manager of H.E.11 – I have a very bad feeling about this.
