9.2 First Day Fears

Shitty Life

“Name?”
“erm… Atom”
“Let me see… here it is… Adam Earham? You’ll be starting with Mr Geogh in the Green Department. You’ll like Mr Gough, he’s a blue sky thinker.”
Inside, the traffic silenced by double gazed edifice, The Green Department hummed its own self importance. Adam followed his escort down the grey aisle and though he felt as if all eyes were upon him, he passed unnoticed and was shown to a cubicle whose partitions had been pared down in order to give the impression of inclusive privacy. He was introduced to the team, names he tried hard to hang onto and was happy to see that his suit was of equal quality to theirs.
This boy will go far.
