Summary: A sexy body with lustrous red lips and captivating green eyes, everybody's perfect dream date, including mine. Except his my boss, and a bastard. MxM

ACT ONE

Mind You, I'm Not Obsessed With My Boss

'ACTION'

The picture starts of with two men talking (well one of them actually) animatedly at a restaurant. Suddenly, one of the men, (the one not talking), stormed off towards the entrance of the restaurant. The picture then zooms into the man left sitting down looking confused and wondering why his date suddenly left.

Edward (V.O.):

Talk about assholes. That guy, yes, the one who just left me, accused me of talking too much about my boss. I mean, common, aren't we supposed to talk about our bosses? Sorry, wait, correction, aren't we supposed to complain about our bosses? Okay, so maybe not on a date, even more so on the whole date, but really, my boss is such a bastard.

Screen pauses and has a blur static vision.

Edward (V.O.):

Ah, shit, wait, damn, fuck, I forgot. You don't even know me, further more my boss, who is by the way, the world's biggest bastard if there is ever such a thing. So I guess I better introduce myself to who in the bloody world is Edward Laden. If this was a movie, it probably would rewind to when I was in high school. So yes, I probably should start from there.

Camera rewinds and comes to a focus to a young boy about 17 wearing thick big glasses.

Edward (V.O.):

No, that is not me. Thankfully, I was blessed with better looks than that guy.

Camera swings to the boy next to him who was talking.

Edward (V.O.):

Yes, that is me. Black uncapped hair, hazelnut eyes, large baggy clothes and well, sadly to say, looks not worth to die for. Hey, but compared to Joe who is the best friend, also the one I'm currently talking to in the picture, I looked actually pretty decent. Of course, my mum wouldn't had agreed since she claimed that I look like one of those ragged thieves on TV, but, fuck my mother.

So anyway, where was I? Oh right, my looks and my best friend Joe. He still is by the way. My best friend I mean. When asked anything about me he knows the answer. Counting the fact that at that time, he was probably the only one who knew I was gay.

A girl with wavy long blond hair and crystal bluish-green eyes enters the picture and walks towards both Joe and Edward.

Edward (V.O.):

Ah, the typical high school cheerleader. The one where every straight guy in high school wishes to fuck. That includes, sadly to say, my best friend Joe Steward, who is absolutely the least popular, the most nerdy and the ultimate loser in high school. Turns out, he's quite the opposite now, but we'll save that for later.

Joe:

H-Hi Veronica.

Suddenly from no where, a garbage bin appears in front of the camera and Joe had to stumble into it falling flat on the ground.

Edward (V.O.):

See what I mean?

Well, besides that Joe is really a good friend where he actually looks out for you. So being the good friend as well, I gave him a helping hand.

Edward goes up to Joe and stuck his hand out. Joe accepted it and tried to pull himself up but instead of getting up, he ended up pulling Edward down together with him.

Edward (V.O.):

So I lack in the strength area. So what? Let's fast forward to graduation shall we?

Camera is fast forward to graduation. Graduated students started throwing their graduation hats in the air and some people started crying.

Edward (V.O.):

So here it is the parting of ways. It's when people decide where they want to go next. It's a choice between going to college or starting a job. For people like Joe, it was definitely the college route. For me? Let's just say I'm glad I graduated.

Joe:

I can't believe it Edward we actually graduated! We survived high school. The terror, the bullies, all the times we-

Edward:

I know, me too. So which college you're applying at?

Joe:

I don't know man. Probably Harvard.

Edward (V.O.):

Well, that's Joe. My man. The really smart ass. Mind you, he did get into Harvard and he graduated with high honors. Me? You asked. Well, I started working bonehead.

Camera is fast forward again to present day Edward who is holding a telephone in his hands talking into the phone with the typical movie-like office as the background.

Edward (V.O.):

And now that's me. No need to say anything now. I know I should have taken high school more seriously, but honestly, what's past has past. No use brooding over the fact I should have studied harder and all the other blah blah, blah blah, blah. I have that enough from my mum already.

So, this is my job. Your typical low-paying job as a secretary. The one taking messages for the boss when he's not in, the one arranging appointments for him, the one bringing coffee for him and not to forget exchanging polite sentences for him where you know he is a complete bastard slash asshole.

Somewhere behind the table which Edward is sitting at:

EDWARD GET IN HERE NOW!

Edward sighs and hangs up the phone and walks towards the direction to where the voice was from. The camera follows Edward to an office room and zooms in on the door where the name reads "Gray Richards."

Gray Richards is standing up looking pissed as he struggles to do his tie.

Gray:

Where the hell were you last night Laden?

Edward (V.O.):

Oh-oh. Last name. This could not be good.

Edward:

Ah, eating dinner?

Gray:

Eating dinner. Good for you. So why in the world couldn't you pick up your damn bloody cell phone!

Camera swings to Edward stunned in silence and then pauses. A flashback enters the picture pushing the present picture out.

It shows where the camera first left Edward at the dinner scene.

Cell Phone:

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)

Edward ignores the phone and still continued to be immersed in his thoughts. The phone continues to ring for a few more minutes before it went quiet. The next minute:

Cell Phone:

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)

Edward continues to be submerged in his thoughts and this scene is repeated about three more times before the picture gets pushed out again and replace by Edward with his mouth slightly open. The film starts to play.

Edward:

Ah, my phone was with my girlfriend?

At this, the camera swings to Gray where one of his eyebrow was cocked up.

Gray:

Girlfriend Edward, girlfriend? Nice one dickhead.

The camera than shows Edward hitting his head with his face hard.

Edward (V.O.):

Oh right, how could I possibly forget. Out of the people in the office who could possibly find out that I 'm gay it had to be my boss. That's right, my bloody boss knew I was gay. Why? Well that's cause unfortunately for me, he caught me making out with another guy in public. Now, I know you probably would say something like "it's your fault that you made out in public" and all that crap, but really, it wasn't mine fault because a) I wasn't the idiot who initiated the kiss and b) the guy who kissed me? Kevin I think, was a really good kisser.

Flashback: Edward was talking to the man beside him who is Kevin when suddenly Kevin decided to shut him up by pressing him against a glass window of a shop and kiss him, hard.

Edward:

What gasp are you gasp do-

Kevin:

Shut up, you talk about your boss too much.

Edward: I do -

Kevin cuts Edward off by kissing him again. They kissed each other with no any other interruptions from Edward when a voice came behind the camera.

Voice behind the camera:

Edward?

The camera swings to the voice with Gray standing there looking amused and a small smirk on his face. The picture then cuts back to the present day.

Edward (V.O.):

You see, I told you it wasn't my fault. Well okay, maybe partially since I was talking too much, but it was Kevin who initiated the kiss so yes, it wasn't my fault. Now, after that incident, I thought I was going to get fired or maybe, perhaps scribbles on my desk saying 'faggot' when i get to work since from what I last heard, there were plenty of homophobes around the office. But as it turned out, neither of those happened. Gray acted as though he did not see me making out with a guy while I was sweating like a pig when I entered the office the next day, and not even once did he mention it, until now. That bastard, I was beginning to think it was a dream.

Camera shows Edward and Gray only inches apart now with Gray snapping his fingers in front of Edward's face.

Gray:

Edward? Edward? EDWARD!

Edward:

Huh? What?

Gray:

Which land were you at? This is your boss you're standing in front of, not your boyfriend.

Edward (V.O.):

I couldn't believe what a jerk he was at the moment but since he is my boss, I couldn't retort. This is of course sadly to say.

Gray:

So for the third time today, why in the world did you not pick up your cell phone?

Edward (V.O.):

I contemplated lying to him. I really did.

Edward:

Cause I was too immersed with my thoughts so I didn't pick up the phone and by the time I got home i just slept so, ah, I did not pick up the phone nor call you back?

Gray:

Please get out my room before I yell at you!

The camera shows Edward running out of the room before the door is slammed loudly behind it. The camera then widens the picture where all the office workers were all staring at him.

'CUT'

Disclaimer: I do not owe the song and lyrics to Edward's hand phone ring tune which is 'It's My Life' by Bon Jovi.

A/n Note: Well, this story, is just for the fun of it.
