“Last week. When you were at lunch. She brought up that graduation report I gave you from Boyle. Sort of threw it at me, but I let it go. Must have seen Phil then,” Elaine said shaking her head again at the empty corner.
“Elaine,” I said forcefully, immediately standing up. I was bristling. Allison had taken a step back, but continued, undeterred. “I told her to take her black ass outta my office. I outrank her and she has no business telling me what to do, so you keep her outta here, ya’ hear?”
Thankfully, I was able to recover quickly. I noticed Boyle seemed astonished Dr. Whitaker and I knew each other. “Thursday would be great, Dr. Whitaker. Just name the time and place and I’ll be there,” I said pleasantly.
