This is an excerpt from my upcoming novel entitled, Sage.
She quickly showered and got dressed. Carefully putting the mask on, making sure the adhesive wasn’t showing, she pressed the thin material over her face and neck. She almost didn’t recognize herself.
She put the wig on and she couldn’t even tell it was a wig. Looked almost like her real hair so she took it off. That was adding a bit too much. She used make up to blend in the seems of the mask with her own skin, and to make sure it wouldn’t peel off. She had chosen a low cut dress, under the assumption that this place was crawling with men. She gave herself the once over, grabbed her purse and keys and ran out the door.
She pulled up to the high rise building and instantly thought of her condo building. They were oddly similar. She walked into the receptionist after parking and was directed to the 10th floor. The elevator doors opened and she was blinded by the sun shining through the window, reflecting off the blindingly white walls, white flowers, white floors and white couches. It was like stepping into the sun, hence the name, High Clouds.
She walked over to another receptionist and was told to have a seat. She waited for nearly an hour before a tall, dark, black man came out.
“Hello, Ms. James. I’m Jay, the COO.”
“Nice to meet you Jay, and please, call me Sage.”
“Sage. Please step into my office.”
She got up and walked past him. His dick jumped at the way her ass moved and her long legs. He followed her into his office and closed the door behind him. She sat in his visitor chair and he leaned against his desk.
“So how did you hear about us?”
“Well, I did my research and saw that you all are the second highest grossing marijuana company.”
“Yeah, we are trying to beat out Sage, Inc. You don’t by chance know Sage Bordeaux, do you?” he asked, inquisitively.
“No, never met her, but I heard she’s pretty damn good at what she does.”
“She is, indeed, however, we aim to plummet her and drive her into the ground, so to speak.”
The heat began to rise again in Sage. This fine ass son of a bitch was trying to stop her business.
“So what’s your interest in Sage, Inc., if you don’t mind me asking?”
“No, that’s a good question,” he said, moving around his desk to his chair.
“Sage, Inc. is honestly a top shelf company, if you know what I mean. They have great revenue, loyal customers, awesome growers, amazing products…”
“Sorry to cut you off but you’re losing me. If Sage, Inc. has all of these great assets, why try to up them?”
“Because Sage is a woman, a black woman at that, and I don’t like a black woman being on top unless she’s riding my dick.”
Sage pretended to be shocked by his words.
“Don’t act surprised. You waltz in here with that tight ass dress, showing off your ass and breasts, which I would like my dick between both by the way.”
“I thought this was an interview.”
“It is, and you’re hired.”
“I can sense that you are a woman who can handle her own and with your sex appeal, we can use you on our persuasion team.”
“We have a group of men and women who use either their sex appeal or their intimidation techniques, to persuade people to start working either with and for us.”
“So that’s how you got some of the growers from Sage, Inc. to switch over.”
“I see you did your research on us.”
“I always have to check out who I will be working for.”
“Can’t be mad at that. So what’s your price?”
“A quarter mil.”
“Are you shitting me?”
Sage stood up and leaned over his desk, exposing her breasts. One fell out of her dress. He leaned forward and took it in his mouth. His dick was begging to be released.
“I’m dead serious. A quarter or I walk.”
“Ok,” he said, in between sucks.
She pulled back and put her breast in her dress, walking out of his office, closing the door behind him. He pulled his dick out and spewed his cum after two tugs. This woman was going to be dangerous, he thought.
Back at her office…
She grabbed her key board and added to her web. Now that she was in with High Clouds, she had to plan the next step, which was to eventually figure out who was running the show, and shut them down. A person this discreet, it had to be a woman. Women were sneaky like that, she should know. She also needed to figure out where the hell Jeremy was that was so secretive. S
he got a ping from his phone on her map at the bottom of the window. He was in Atlanta. What the hell was in Atlanta? She zeroed in on the location and he was at a residential location. She sent a message to her IT person, who she paid of the books, to see who and what was at this address. Then the ping disappeared before she could get the full address. She sat up quick. Then another ping came. He was at her office building.
“Why are you keeping tabs on me?”
She screamed and dropped her keyboard at the sound of Jeremy’s voice.
“What the fuck Jeremy?!”
“Why are you keeping tabs on me?”
Her phone dinged and it was her IT person. Jeremy snatched the phone out of her hand, read the message and replied something back. He placed it on her desk as he walked towards her, deactivating the screen, not taking his eyes of her. Sage’s heart stopped, her pussy became moist as he got closer, until he was towering over her, her back against the window. He looked at her with the same expression he always had. He began to lean down and his lips almost touched hers.
“Stop budding in my fucking business, Sage,” he whispered against her lips, running a finger down her cheek, and then walked out her office.
She gasped for air. She had never been that close to him before and she could have swore he was going to fuck her where she stood. All she felt now was anger and embarrassment. Her phone dinged again and it was a notification that the connection to the cameras at his house had been lost. He found out about those too and must’ve took them down.
She was now frustrated, mentally, emotionally, and sexually. That brought her back to what Brice had said the night before. Those memories from long ago began to rise and she pushed them aside.
