Excerpt from The Boss's Little Miracle by Barbara McMahon
Anna Larkin came out of the underground station into the pouring rain. The gusting wind made using an umbrella impossible. She bent her head and began walking up Montgomery Street. Her cross trainers were getting wet, but better than soaking the high heels, which she carried in her tote bag. Her hair would be a mess, curls everywhere. But not to be helped, it was the least of her worries.
San Francisco was often rainy in late October and today was no exception.
She just wished it had been sunny--or at least dry. She was coming down with the flu. Walking in the rain would certainly do nothing to help. Bad things came in threes, she mused. First her sister's call this weekend to jubilantly share the news she was expecting a new baby. Anna had tried to rejoice with her sister, but without the chance of having a baby herself, each time she had to pretend it didn't matter it got harder.
Then--the flu. She was usually healthy rarely even getting a cold during the winter. She so did not need this.
Now hurrying through the rain to get to work in order to meet the new man who was taking charge of the company today was about the last straw. All she wanted to do was curl up in bed and sleep.
She reached the cavernous lobby of the high-rise building in short order. Entering, she shook as much of the water as she could from her raincoat and hair before getting on one of the express elevators. She hoped there was time to dry her hair before the meeting. The natural curls always dominated in damp weather.
She no sooner stepped off on her floor than her colleague, and friend, Teresa accosted her.
"You look terrible," she said, grabbing Anna's arm and hurrying her along to the ladies' room. Once safely inside, Anna peered at her reflection in the mirror. She looked worse than she felt, if that was possible. Pale with wet hanks of hair framing her face, she looked like she had the flu.
"Today's the day we finally meet the new boss, you're certain to make an impression," Teresa teased. "Hurry up. He's called for a meeting of department heads at nine."
"I feel sick as a dog," Anna said, slipping off her cross trainers. "I think it's the flu. I've been sick all weekend and wouldn't have come in today if the new CEO wasn't starting. Just when I need to make a good impression if I want that promotion."
"I thought Mr. Taylor said it was in the bag," said Teresa, holding the tote and reaching for Anna's high heels.
The rain had left her stockings wet, but they would dry soon enough. She took the offered heels, tossing her wet raincoat over one of the stall doors, letting it drip onto the tile floor. Better here than in her office.
