Follow Your Instinct.
Life was rough for her since she shifted to a new city. Big dreams in her eyes and the fire inside to achieve everything she desired, deserved and to live life on her own terms. Alone, beautiful, single young woman trying her luck in the big city is really a difficult task.
Recently she got a good opportunity to work in a big multinational company. She was happy as her hardwork paid off. Everything was as per her expectations except her Boss. He was in his mid fifty. Most of the time he used to make her wait beyond office hours. She has to obey as he was her boss and to complete the work in scheduled time was her duty, she can’t deny even if he allot her work everyday just when she’s about to leave the office. Sometimes her instinct hinted her something is not right in his intensions, she used to brushed away such thoughts thinking it might be normal to work late hours in big city.
One day her boss asked her to accompy him for the meeting at the hotel. He asked her to be there to assist him in his work. The venue and time was odd as he asked her to be there at sharp 10pm. She had to obliged as it was her boss decision. She reached the hotel premises by 9.45pm. He saw her from his suite window, a cunning smile appeared on his face. When she reached the reception area, a message was waiting for her. He had asked her to directly join him to his suite.
‘Weird’, she thought and entered in to the lift. Something is really wrong, her instinct once again warned her. ‘Get away from this place, dont go’, her mind was continuously trying to alert her. Confused, scared she reached near the door. Slowly Her hand reached out to knock, at that moment something stopped her hand midway. A voice from her head screamed, ‘NO’. She turned and walked away.
Next morning her resignation letter was on the boss desk.
Nothing is more important than safety, dignity for a woman. What if she is staying alone, working late night. Nobody can take her for granted.
