A/N: Some of the lines used in this fic don’t belong to me, I got them out of the movie, so credit to the writers. I’d love to hear what you think, feedback is always appreciated.
“You’re late.” was the first thing you heard as soon as you answered the phone.
“Don’t need to remind me.” your eyes practically rolled to the back of your head in annoyance at your best friend, “Natasha, please, please, cover for me. I’m ten minutes away from the office.”
“Depends. What’s in for me?”
“A big hug from me.” you answered again, “Is Mr. Stark there yet?”
“No, but he hardly is here. Why are you late anyway?”
“I spilled coffee on my blouse.”
“That doesn’t really surprise me.” she laughed.
“I swear it was an accident, I just tripped.” you defended, “Anyway, I’ll be there shortly, in about five minutes.”
As soon as she agreed, you hung up and drove the rest of the way to your workplace. Soon enough, you found yourself parking in your designated spot and entering the Stark Magazine Headquarters. Inside the building was hectic, as usual, as everyone tried to complete their own tasks in time. Grabbing some documents from one of the assistants, you walked decidedly to your shared office, where Natasha was seated at her desk. You closed the glass door behind you and greeted her shortly, before going over to your own computer and starting it.
“Give me an update, Romanoff.”
“The Lakers basketball player is here for the interview, for the Sports department.”
“Great. We should send Pietro to interview him, a photographer and a couple of writers to get the article ready.”
“Genius. And please, tell Pietro to do the interview objectively. Last time, he almost blew up the whole thing by arguing about what team was better.”
She chuckled lowly, “I’ll make sure to tell him.”
