  2. Jennifer was having a horrendous day. The deal that she had been working on for nearly a year had fallen through, but that wasn't the cause of her consternation. Her boss had taken over the negotiations several days ago, saying that she was incapable of doing her duties and that he would close the deal in no time. But what he didn't realize was that the reason things were taking so long was because the Japanese had a particular way of conducting business and that his style of negotiations was going to offend them. Within five minutes of meeting him, the Japanese businessmen refused to continue negotiations because they did not wish to do business with a company that hired such intolerable employees. Her boss had laid the blame squarely at Jen's feet, asking her to abdicate her position.

    Rage was just one of the emotions she was feeling. What a prick, asking her to resign for doing absolutely nothing wrong. But that was fine by her, because she was feeling ignoble enough to use her feminine wiles on him. She had seen the way he looked at her. He wanted her; she was going to use that to her advantage. Carefully adjusting her blouse to show just the right amount of cleavage, she opened the door to his office. She smiled. This was going to be fun.

    Come to give me your two weeks notice?"

    "Not quite. I was thinking something...a little more fun. To remember me by when I'm gone" she said, walking over to his desk, carefully straddling him in his chair.

    Hmm, you mettlesome little girl, willing to...beg for your job. That's the spirit." He smirked.

    She smiled at him. "
    Tell me what you want to do to me," she said as she nonchalantly flipped the switch to his intercom on.

    I want to fuck you like the little whore that you are."

    Excuse me? I don't appreciate being talked to that way. Do you talk to all your female employees that way?" The stunned look on his face was priceless as he quickly realized what she had done.
