I’m fawning over Christine like a school girl when her first crush notices her for the first time. Before I can say anything more my assistant, Jessica, catches my attention. I look at her and she holds up her mobile phone and indicates that someone wants to talk to me.
“Um… excuse me for a moment,” I say. I cross to Jessica who takes me by the arm and turns away from Christine.
“Who’s on the phone?”
“No-one,” she whispers, “but take my advice. Pretend there’s someone on the phone and walk away right now. Come back when she’s gone.”
I look at her quizzically but her expression tells me she’s in charge and furious. I take the phone and press it to my ear. I start a fake conversation with no-one and walk away.
