SCENE OPENS on Ashley (Bella Rolland), a secretary, quietly working on her laptop at her desk. She seems very professional and focused on her work.
David (Mike Mancini), her boss, walks into view. He stands tall and is confident, clearly a man with power. Ashley straightens up with a polite smile. Judging by her body language, it’s clear that she has secret feelings for him but doesn’t act on them.
As Ashley fills David in on some business, there seems to be some sexual tension between them. David makes a move on her, about to kiss her. Ashley momentarily gets caught up in the moment but pulls away before they kiss, shocked. David tries to convince her to have sex, comparing an old way of working and living to the modern age. Ashley is tempted but worried, not wanting to cause a divorce between David and his wife, Megan. David insists that he’s not going to leave his wife and that he’s just looking for a bit of fun.
Despite her temptation, Ashley ultimately rejects his advances, insisting that she doesn’t feel right about potentially hurting Megan. David doesn’t seem too disappointed, telling Ashley that if she ever changes her mind, the door is always open. David then excuses himself to go into his office.
After David leaves, Ashley is still stunned but conflicted. She keeps glancing thoughtfully back at his office, as if debating whether or not she should go follow him.
She tries to focus back on work but her eyes trail once more to his office.
Days later, Ashley seems consumed by thoughts of being with David but feels guilty about Megan potentially getting hurt. She decides to find out what kind of person Megan is to see what she should do next.
Later that same day, Ashley follows Megan to where she teaches classes. Suspecting that Megan’s up to no good, Ashley enters the classroom and poses as a student. Ashley tries to get dirt on Megan but it seems like Megan is a good person. Megan leaves to grab a coffee before her lecture and Ashley tails her.
Ashley tries not to be noticed as she spies on Megan at the coffee shop. She’s desperate now to find SOMETHING bad about Megan. A customer ahead of Megan drops their wallet.
Megan picks up the wallet. She takes money out of it before returning the wallet to the customer.
Ashley smiles excitedly. This is EXACTLY the justification she’s been looking for to take things with David to the next level. Their relationship is about to go WAY beyond a strictly professional one…
