All this changed though on the day Jack met Daria. She was a very beautiful woman with long flowing golden locks and a body most women would kill for. Since she was the secretary of T.G. Hyant, Jacks boss, the two spent loads of time together while T.G. spent most of his time away from the office; no doubt playing golf and sipping champagne. Over the course of the next few months they developed a very good rapport with each other.
This came in very handy considering Jack wanted to climb the corporate ladder and was willing to do so by any means necessary. Daria would fill him in on any important developments and there were a few times she told Jack things that not even her boss knew about. Call it insider trading or whatever you wish to call it but the bottom line was Jack was now a rising star at the firm.
In his quest to become the top dog at the company Jack managed to ruffle more than a few feathers. His biggest critic was of course, T.G. Hyant, who was still his boss. But Jack had bigger plans than just being moved to his own office and handling the larger accounts. Jack was poised to be the “next big thing” but he wanted more. He wanted to run the whole damn show. But the only way he could do that was by getting rid of T.G.
Jack had numerous plans on how to remove T.G. from his powerful position but he knew that you don’t get to be in a position of power by being a push over and T.G. certainly was no push over. In fact when Jack first started with the firm his co-workers warned him of T.G. and told Jack to steer clear of him at any costs. They described T.G. as a ruthless businessman that never took no for an answer and would cut corners and step on toes if that’s what it took to seal the deal.
But unfortunately for Jack as he clawed his way to the top of the corporate ladder he was inevitably forced to work side by side with T.G. who was strongly against Jack being promoted in the first place. For Jack this was merely a stepping stone to greatness but T.G. had other plans in mind for Jack. You see just as in the wild there can be only one alpha male in the pack and T.G. was at the top of his game and had no plans of retiring any time soon so he took every step imaginable to ensure that Jack would climb no higher than he had already.
While working with T.G. looked good on paper the truth of the matter was this, Jack did all the work and T.G. got all the praise. This incensed Jack so much that he finally gave in to temptation and decided to do something about it. He was bound and determined to either expose T.G. as the fraud he was or get rid of him….Permanently.
Putting his plan into effect wasn’t all that hard, you see in his quest for power and notoriety T.G. made several enemies in the process, namely his diligent secretary, Daria. Although T.G. was her boss she despised not only the man, but everything he stood for, which was winning at any cost. She had stood by and idly watched as T.G. crushed the careers of many men, men that had the potential to do great things. Daria had seen enough and was ready to take her boss down a peg or two. Not only that, she was smitten by the charming and charismatic ways of one man in particular, Jack and she wanted more than anything in the world to see him succeed.
Partly because she loved him but mostly because she utterly despised T.G. so over the course of the next few weeks Daria hand picked the jobs that Jack worked on. She also made sure that whatever he did he was given full credit for. She even went as far as to divert phone calls and jobs that were meant for T.G. to Jack to expedite the process further.
Their clandestine tactics went unnoticed for the most part but T.G. knew that something was going on; he just couldn’t quite put his finger on it. Then one fateful day as Jack was going through his boss’ office looking for potential leads T.G. arrived unexpectedly. Daria was unable to save her beloved this time or even warn him of T.G.’s presence.
As T.G. got closer to the door which led to his office he could see Jack rifling through the papers in his file cabinet. He slammed open the door and bellowed:
I Smell The Blood Of A Cowardly Man
His Career Is Hot Right Now But Soon It’ll Be Dead
I Will Not Rest Til I Have Your Head”
Jack was seemingly caught with his hand in the cookie jar with nowhere to run and no one to protect him this time. Daria watched helplessly as her boss inched closer to Jack. There was no turning back now, Jack knew it was time to put up or shut up. Before T.G. had the chance to react Jack sprang into action, grabbing T.G. by his custom tailored jacket, pulling it up over his head.
T.G. spun wildly around the room trying to free himself as Jack led him closer and closer to the plate glass windows that surrounded the office. As Jack positioned T.G. directly in front of one of the larger windows he turned to take one last look at Daria, giving her a sly wink before turning to T.G.
“T.G. as you know what goes up must come down” He said sharply.
Without hesitating one bit Jack lifted his foot off the ground and planted it firmly in the middle of T.G.’s chest. The thunderous blow sent the man crashing through the window and plummeting to the street below.
Daria rushed and grabbed Jack in a loving embrace. The two hugged and kissed for they knew their nightmare was over, but a new chapter in their lives was about to open. Jack was the most qualified to take over where T.G. had left off and they both knew it was only a matter of time before their fairy tale ending would come to fruition.
Before anyone else was able to arrive Jack took out an envelope from inside his jacket and laid it on the large wooden desk.
‘What’s that?” Daria quizzed.
“The answer to all our problems my sweet” He replied.
“A little something I came up with last night to explain why good old T.G. decided to cash in his chips and take an early retirement.”
Daria gave Jack a perplexing look and inquired “A….suicide note?”
Jack just gave a wicked little grin as he nodded his head.
That was the end of T.G. Hyant and his corporate beanstalk.
