Just Keeps Getting Better -13
Two Weeks Later
Eva Robaznik was, if nothing else,
Within two weeks she had organised
her return home, (with a temporary
posting for a specific task).
She had traded in her car for a
modest vehicle (which she gave to
She elected to be taken to the airport by another driver so as not
to allow the possibility of a dramatic 'good-bye'.
Jeremy had been driving another executive as Eva's plane took off. They
were discussing Arsenal FC. As he knew so much he was outtalking
one of his bosses, who didn't take it well.
Late that evening, (way late) driving away from work, he made the wrong
turn; going towards Eva's townhouse; that is when he realised she was gone.
This meant he better get to a supermarket and pick up some
eat now fast food on his way to his flat.
Eva craved to call Jeremy as her plane touched down, but as it was a fifteen hour
flight it was 1am (Jeremy Time). She'd wait until his 7:30 AM.
Jeremy had hit his bed at 9:30, a mixture of exhaustion, boredom and opting out.
When will he learn to keep his mouth shut?
Now Mr. Bollington was cheesed off because he, the lowly Chauffeur
from nowhere, was right about the results of a particular FA match,

Jeremy was leaving the house at 7:30 am when his cell rang.
It was Eva.
She asked how things were and because he didn't have anyone to
talk to at the moment he gave her the long version of the Bollington story.
Eva instructed him to buy a Cuban Cigar and put it on Bolo's desk.
Bollington was a rather vicious person who could hold grudges forever.
With Eva gone there was no one to 'protect' him.
Although Jeremy would love to quit this job, until he had a place to go
he had no choice; it just keeps getting better.
