Fraying Edges

Last Time …

Amelia’s meeting with Zoe didn’t go well. Zoe was unimpressed when Amelia told her she suspected that Christina had sabotaged the board presentation.

There were more surprises in store when Amelia got back to her office. A panicked Christina decided to get on the front foot and pointed the finger for the sabotage at Chantal. But Chantal was ahead of her; she’d already texted Amelia requesting an urgent offsite meeting.

By the time Richard called with news he’d been promoted, Amelia was exhausted and distracted. This conversation didn’t go well either. Richard misinterpreted her reaction as a lack of support.

It’s a few months later, so let’s see what’s happening …

A Tangled Web

Last Time …

It was the day of Amelia’s presentation to the Board. She had recovered from the attempted sabotage and things had gone smoothly. Zoe and the Board were impressed.

Meanwhile, Richard was waiting nervously in the boardroom at Madigan MacDougall and Gould. He had been summoned to a confidential meeting by the founding partner, Brady Madigan.

When Amelia returned to the office, her cheerful demeanour confused Christina and Chantal, and they became more troubled when Amelia unexpectedly called a team meeting for later that day.

Little did they know, Amelia was on her way to speak to Zoe about the sabotage. Let’s find out what Zoe had to say.

Traitor Beware

Last Time …

It was Friday night and Amelia was working late checking her board presentation. She forgot the time and left Richard waiting at their favourite Italian restaurant, La Dolce Vita. When Amelia finally arrived she found an angry Richard walking out.

In the meantime, the bubbly was flowing as Christina, Chantal, Keesha and the rest of the team were partying at Choo Choo’s. They toasted Amelia for working late while they were having fun.

During a tense ride home Amelia tried to explain to Richard why she had been so late. His anger subsided when she told him she had found a serious error in her presentation, and suspected that it was deliberate. Was someone in Amelia’s team a saboteur?

The Enemy Within

Last Time …

Amelia’s boss, Zoe, has been given a promotion. When Zoe and her boss, Declan, called Amelia and Christina into a meeting, Christina was sure she was about to get Zoe’s job. Christina did get a promotion, but not the one she was hoping for. Instead, it was Amelia who was promoted to Head of Marketing.

Now Amelia is Christina’s boss.

Christina was seething, but she kept her feelings hidden.

For Amelia, her promotion marks a new chapter in her career. She’s been in the role for a few months, so let’s see how things are going.

Who’s The Boss?

Last Time …

Amelia doesn’t know it but big changes are afoot. Her boss, Zoe, has been given a promotion, and Zoe’s boss, Declan, has suggested to her that Amelia and Christina are the top contenders to replace her.

Zoe is struggling to decide between them. She’s recently received complaints about Amelia from Christina and another colleague, Chantal. Uncertain whether these complaints are valid, or are simply jealousy, she’s contemplating appointing someone from outside the department.

What will Zoe decide?

Change Is In The Air

Last Time …

Thank God things with Christina are back to normal. Though I’m not sure about the rest of the team, Chantal’s been acting strange towards me lately.

Right now that’s the least of my worries. Work’s been full on busy, and Zoe’s been riding us pretty hard. Declan’s been having lots of meetings with all the ‘Heads Of’. Now Zoe’s called a morning tea meeting – but I can’t go.

Can’t wait to hear the news from Chrissy when she gets back. The uncertainty’s getting to me because Richard and me need both our salaries to make the mortgage payments. I hope its good news.

Troubled Waters

Last Time …

Christina and me went to Choochoo’s after work to celebrate getting the job done for Zoe. It was a big night, just like old times. Good old Richard picked us up afterwards, even though it was a Monday night.

Christina didn’t say what the issue was, but it was so nice to get things back to normal that I didn’t bother asking. I suppose all friendships have glitches from time to time. I’m relieved that we’re over it, and that it’s all water under the bridge now.

Though I do still wonder what Christina’s issue was.

What The?

Last Time …

Things between Christina and me went from bad to worse.

I don’t know what I did but she was really at me and did it in front of the others. Then when Zoe called our Monday meeting forward by a couple of hours Christina didn’t tell me. I felt set-up. I had to rush in at the last minute with no preparation.

From Bad to Worse

Last Time …

The tone of Christina’s voice was hateful. I thought I was going to vomit right there and then! I’ve never heard her talk about anyone like that – not even when she’d told me about the bitch that she’d worked with in her last job. Why would she do this to me? What’s going on?

Now, I’m sitting in the café staring at my coffee cup, trying to get myself together. I don’t know what to do. I don’t even want to go back up there.

Amelia’s Story: The Beginning

When I got the job at Global Industries, it was a dream-come true. Zoe, the Head of Marketing, had interviewed me, and by the time the interview was finished I really wanted to work for her. She’d told me the marketing team was top notch, full of dynamic and driven women. And she was right! At last I felt like I had a real career, working in a good company with energized and focused people.
