“I insist you take a holiday, Miss Thompson. You have worked at this firm for three years and the last few years have been tough for you.”
Susan didn’t want to take a holiday, being busy kept her worries from consuming her at night. If she was working, she wasn’t over thinking and she wasn’t so alone. It was bad enough being in an empty flat.
At least when she was working, she could think of other things, speak to other people and have a social life. A holiday was the worst thing she could think of. Who could she go with? It was bad enough being single at work, but on holiday she stuck out even more.
“I don’t want to go on holiday, I’m fine, and besides this is your busiest time.”
”For the sake of your health, you look tired, and we can manage a week without you.”
Susan walked out of the office, and her heart felt like a concrete weight. She didn’t know how to relax, and being at home was boring.
“You okay?’ Bethany asked.
“Got to take my holiday,” Susan said.
“Me too, but my friend has bailed on me. I know, why don’t you go with me. I would expect any money, and you would be great company.”
‘Really! I would love to go with you,’ Susan said.
Her first holiday in years, and she couldn’t help but be happy.
