Late For Work

 

The chauffeur, Lye, honked the car horn in fury. He had been caught in the same pile up of cars for more than half an hour and he was getting impatient. If the traffic did not get a move on, he would be late for his appointment with his strict employer, Madam Ee. He hated to think of the look on her finely featured face. Although delicate-looking at most times, she can look devilishly harsh when she became angry.

The moving traffic was crawling at a snail's pace. Lye took a look around him and he realised that he was not the only pent-up driver on the road. He soon found the cause of the traffic jam. Twenty metres in front of him was a road narrowing due to some road works. As soon as he was over the bottle-neck, he sped off as if there were no tomorrow. Actually, if he was late, there would be no tomorrow because Madam Ee would surely fire him.

He pulled up along the slim track of Madam Ee's Sixth Avenue bungalow. He was relieved that he was only ten minutes late. However, his relief was only met with Madam Ee's frowning and disapproving face. She walked briskly over to the car and scolded him for being late. Then after threatening to fire him from his job, she went back into her huge bungalow. Madam Ee sounded as if there was an emergency at hand.

Lye wondered what the emergency was all about. Then Madam Ee came strolling out wit her pet poodle, Ribbons. Ribbons was sick and had to be taken to the vet. Lye took a second look at the poodle and thought that it looked as healthy as a poodle could look. He sighed and casually drove to the vet.
