The fact that I hadn't been on a date with a boy since middle school didn't help with that at all.I couldn't even take advantage of it, for crying out loud – I've known I was gay since I was sixteen, when I realized that my masturbatory fantasies hadn't involved a boy in quite some time and weren't likely to any time soon.I'd been Diane's assistant for not quite a year, on my fifth attempt at finding a steady job in the field.My first boss had been a kindly older man, but his second heart attack had forced his retirement, and there'd been no other job open for me that wouldn't have required more sucking up than I was willing to do.She still cut quite an imposing figure on the rare occasions she actually went to a trial, though – tall, fit, blonde, long legs, cold blue eyes – she was the very image of a ruthless, bloodsucking lawyer.I thought she was actually a pretty nice woman, myself – quiet and private about herself, but always composed, with a ready smile.My second boss had tried to convince me that assistants always worked until 3 a.m. I don't have a life for them to interfere with anyway.Still, if I wanted to work eighteen hour days seven days a week, I could have gone to law school – and then I wouldn't be holding down assistant jobs for crap pay and no benefits.
Diane also had two paralegals who worked for her, but I rarely saw them much.If you shouldn't be reading adult material, don't read this. *** I groaned softly as I settled back at my desk, reaching down surreptitiously to massage one of my calves. " My boss asked me sympathetically on her way by with her third cup of coffee.I heaved a deep sigh, starting to respond, but she was already back through her office door, letting it swing mostly closed as she settled in, sipping her coffee.She was one of those people who you'd finish telling your life story to and then realize she hasn't said a thing about herself.So far, my time working for her had consisted entirely of variations on the exchange I just mentioned, though – basic pleasantries, small talk, and the like.
