She tiptoed down about the showcases with a stick in her hand. She was trembling and her hands were shaky. Her heartbeat could be heard from afar. She wondered what could have made such a sound. She had closed for the day. She checked her watch while closing her locker and it was past 11:00 pm. As she came closer, the noise became much louder, mumbling and footsteps and flying papers. Her heart filled with thought. "Hi! You must be... Woe! Woe! Woe!" said Joshua as he ducked. "Who are you?" she said in a shaky voice. She had thought it was a burglar. "Wait! I'm new here" replied Joshua sharply. "And what?" "I was just sorting out some files" "What makes you think am going to believe you?" "Here, my ID" he hands over his ID. "I got employed three days ago. I was commissioned to start today" She was a bit relieved by his words. The tender way he spoke, his tender voice, and his eyes relieved her. "You are the guy replacing Emma?" "Yeah! I'm Joshua, Joshua Bolton, but call me Josh. That's what people call me" replied Josh as he massage his head. "Geez! You almost hit my head off" "Thank God that you were alive, Joshua or whatever. Call me Tracy" "Maybe next time you try to wait before you swing your bat like a baseball player." "Alright! How is your first day at work, Josh?" "Horrible and terrifying. Especially minutes ago. My head is falling off"
