Alice through the looking glass #48


Pete winced at the screeching sound of Lydia, the company secretary in his earpiece.

"Pete! Oh God! Pete! Shut Frank up! The boss is coming down to see you!"

"Er, blonde, blue suit, mid twenties?"

"Yes! Shut Frank up before he runs his mouth off at her!"

"Sure Lydia."

Frank turned to the new-comer. "And who the fu..." Pete's huge hand clamped itself over Franks face, muffling the stream of swear words about to come out.

"Be quiet Frank." Pete looked at Alice. "Hello boss." Frank froze, and his eyes widened.

"Mr Witherall." She nodded at Frank. "Mr Bastion."
