Knock, knock, knock. . .
"Helllloooooo up there!"
Silence. . .
"Oh my, where to start?"Just then Bessie walked through the door.
Kinsey turned. "Hello you must be Isabelle. I am Kinsey Mio, your new secretary. The door was not locked so I just let myself in. Hope you don't mind."
"I'm sorry, final exams? What do you mean?"
"Isabelle is currently studying to become a real estate agent," Bessie explained. "I didn't know she was hiring staff already. Understandable, I suppose, as she is planning on opening in about a week."
Bessie glanced around and realized that indeed, the office was very messy! "Exams!" she concluded.
"No excuse!" the no-nonsense Kinsey replied. "I see that I have my work cut out for me. I guess Isabelle was not expecting me so soon, but I am thinking it was rather fortunate that I am here now! I will just go and check into a hotel and come back tonight to meet Isabelle."
"Sounds good to me!"
So Kinsey and Bessie spent the afternoon chatting over cookies and tea, while waiting for Isabelle to arrive back at the office.
(You do know that all Elves have a major sweet tooth, don't you?)
And so, when it comes to sweet things, there is always room for just one more!
