The next day, Tara went into work expecting the worst. All morning while she got ready, she just had this feeling that something bad was going to happen. She wouldn't have to wait long to see if this was so. Tara got to work around 8, like usual, and got right to work. She started with a project that had to be done by Friday. About 20 minutes after Tara got there, there was a knock on her office door.
"Come in!" Tara said.
The door opened and it was Mike standing on the other side. "Tara, we need to talk."
"Ok." Tara said as she motioned for Mike to sit down in front of her desk.
"I got a call this morning from Mr. McMillan." Mike said as she walked in front of her desk but didn't sit down.
"Oh really?" Tara said trying to play like she didn't know that he was going to call. "What did he have to say?"
"Well, he wanted to let me know that how the meeting went and also to tell me about the good news."
"Yeah. I was so surprised when he said that he wanted to make us his exclusive ad company."
"Me too but that wasn't all that he said."
"No." He said as she placed his hands on her desk and looked her right in the eyes. "He also said that you were to be the only one that worked on his projects as well as Butterfly Affect." Mike paused and just looked at Tara. "What I don't understand is why in the hell would he want you exclusively?"
"I guess that he really liked what I did with the project." Tara said getting a little upset with where Mike was going with this.
"See, that is what I am talking about. You taking work that you had nothing to do with."
"What do you mean that I had nothing to do with? I have worked on this project for two months."
"Yeah, what should have only taken a week, took you almost two months."
"Mike, I am not sure who the hell you think you are but..." Tara was cut off.
"I don't think that I am anything. I know that I am the fucking boss and as far as I am concerned, that gives me the right to do whatever the hell I want." Mike said as he started to make he way around Tara's desk to where she was now standing.
"See that is where you are wrong asshole." Tara said as Mike was now right in front of her behind her desk.
Mike reached his hand up and attempted to place it on Tara's cheek but it was met with Tara's hand.
"You may be the boss but that doesn't give you the right to ever tell me what to do cause as of this moment, I no longer work here." Tara said as she bent her knee and lifted it up into the crotch of Mike.
Mike fell to the ground and Tara just stepped over him, grabbed her coat and briefcase and headed out the door to the elevators. She got about half way down the hallway and then stopped. She turned around and went back into her office. When she got back there, Mike had gotten up to his feet and was holding his crotch.
"I forgot something." Tara said as she grabbed the picture that was on her desk of her and her family. She turned around and went back towards the door. "Oh one more thing, I am going to give all of my clients a call and let them know what a lying dick you are and also let them know that I will be starting my own company in conjunction with Butterfly Affect if they want to come there for their business."
"I am going to destroy you, you bitch." Mike said as he tried to walk towards Tara.
"You just try it and you will finally see what a real business woman is capable of." Tara said as she left the office and walked down the hallway.
