The first week had passed really fast. Sisley had already found an evening activity where she would join the Gym in Manchester and in addition, she had found a dance session at the Zion arts Center in Hume. An area that wasn’t really recommended to go to and once she had mentioned it at the office the “Ladies” were shaking their head that a “girl” could not go to such a place. Sisley just laughed about it and the “good soul” confirmed her that it wasn’t that bad.
For Sisley, it wasn’t even a question to go to that area and of course, this was okay. Many students and dancers attended at this dance hall and it was a great class very interesting. They learned a lot about dance improvisation by the well-known teacher Julia and her assistant a gay guy who seemed to be bored by almost everything but acting in such a funny way that it was cute.
Once Sisley started to dance his being bored actually disappeared and he seemed quite excited about her moves. Immediately he came over performing next to her. It was a great night, Julia also recommended a guy who would teach street dance as Sisley had asked for someone to teach at the Manchester sports club that she had joined at her arrival. And just a week later the guy Julia had recommended would start teaching at the sports club. Sisley was really pleased about so she could join twice a week some of her favourite dance classes.
Two weeks later after the introduction on one of the sales desks, Sisley took over the holiday cover and managed the job well on her own. The three other sales desk ladies were surprised how she handled it with such ease as themselves who were doing that job since ages had sometimes more difficulties in dealing with the people and seemed to be much more challenged with the tasks than Sisley was.
The German girl from the trainee program Tina came over and asked Sisley to go for lunch. At 1:00 pm they met and went over to a pub. She gave some more insight of the internal relations and how it was not liked by the management and everything had to be kept secret.
She told a story about the finance director and an admin girl who were a couple and married now. In the beginning, she had worked here in the department for him but once it came out that they had something going on she had been moved to another department. By company rules, it was not allowed for couples to work in the same department.
Tina also announced that there would start two new trainees one from Germany and one from Austria at the beginning of the following week. The German trainee was already older like twenty-eight years old and was married which was unusual for the trainees they normally had but she had good grades and was at the end of her study and would do work on a marketing project. The Austrian girl was a trainee in business administration and would work in the finance department.
Tina and Sisley arranged to go out the following weekend. Tina had suggested Pizza Express in Alderley Edge where they also had a good nightclub.
Friday night at seven o’clock Sisley was ready and drove over to Tina’s house. She had a four bedroom flat in an old Victorian house, the interior looked more like an Ikea showroom. Tina laughed as Sisley said that then she asked her to come into the living room and showed Sisley her latest IQ-Test result. Somehow she seemed to be obsessed with this.
She also flashed Phil’s results on Sisley. Phil was actually the guy Sisley had previously met in Germany as a trainee and who worked in the same department as Tina. Why did Tina have his Test Results in her living room? Sisley was thinking. Tina cracked a smile and said: “You don’t know, do you?” Tina asked, “And please keep it a secret, nobody knows this in the company but Phil and I we are together already since over a year.”
Sisley was surprised and was now standing there with an open mouth, rolling her eyes saying: “What?” She could hardly believe. Tina was long over thirty and the guy was hardly over twenty and had an attitude like a little school boy. But then she thought: Okay, Tina is such a dominant woman, that’s obviously what she needs one who she can command and does anything for her. Then she replied: “Well, why not, but you’re really good at hiding it. I would have never thought about you two being together the way you act in the office.” Tina answered: “Yes, but this is why Phil was in Germany last year because he is with me and I asked him to because this would be good for his career.”
Sisley just thought: Sure, two weeks in Germany will be really further someone’s career who has no self-motivation at all but anyway. Tina was now praising her IQ-test: “Ha, ha mine is two points higher than his.” Sisley couldn’t believe how stupid this woman was despite her IQ-Test score. Why had someone such a need to show off like that? Sisley asked: “Oh my stomach, I’m starving, I had no lunch today. Common let’s go I love the Pizza Express they have such crispy pizzas and their pasta are so yummy.
Tina said: “Oh, yes let’s go I love their foods too, I always love to eat both pizzas and their pasta and they have a “carne” I just got to have it.” Sisley asked: “You want to eat that all on one day? Oh, how about we share some of it then we can have a taste of all of it?”
The two girls left the house and went over to the cars. Tina had a new Polo with a right-hand wheel she had just bought a month ago. She would stay here another 3 years so her program went for four years in total. Sisley was supposed to stay for a year. Sisley followed Tina towards Alderley Edge and at eight thirty both arrived at the Pizza Express.
They had reserved a table and the waiter accompanied the girls to their table. They had such handsome guys as waiters, tall, dark hair and dressed in these white, leger Shirts. This one had such strong green eyes and of course a sexy smile.
Tina stared at him, swallowed and sat down on her chair. “He got a nice trained chest, doesn’t he, looks different from Phil, doesn’t he?” Sisley commented laughing and Tina replied: “Well but this guy you won’t have for your own, probably, do you?” She smiled.
”Well, you can’t have everything!” Sisley smiled than saying: “Why not?” Tina was wondering: “So what you mean, one who is true to you for your own, and the other one good looking to share?”
Sisley, nodded with her head saying: “Could be an option, couldn’t it?” Tina stared at Sisley: “It’s an idea yes, I never thought of it, and not that you come up with such ideas, you look so decent, but actually a quiet one is a good option.” Tina sipped on her drink. “I did not know you are so creative!”
And there he was the hot southern country looking guy: “You want me to take your order, Ladies?” Sisley answered: “Yes, we would like to share some dishes, so we can order some more and have a taste of all of it, that’s okay?”
The waiter looking at Sisley straight into her eyes: “You want a taste of all of it?”
Sisley replying: “Well, yes, from the offers in the menu, of course, or are there any specials not listed on the menu?”
The waiter “Yes, the main courses are all on the menu, but we have special surprises on the desert, so I will let you know after the main courses, but keep some space for it.”
Sisley and Tina shortly exchanging some eye contact than they place their order for the hors d’oeuvre and for the main courses for the desert they chose the surprise…
