Kayleigh and Alex walked into chaos.
Bruce and his crew had bright green tee shirts on, they had slogans printed on them that said "Callum the Killer" "Bruce the Bruiser and other idiotic slogans. Heavy metal blasted from speakers and Kayleigh recognised the lyrics, they words were,
"If we sing along, a little fucking louder, to a happy song, I know I'll be ok."
It was one of her favourite songs before the disaster she would listen to it before work
Umbrellas and baseball bats were flying around and a vicious zombie kill was taking place.
Brenton was buzzing.
"Go lads, go"
He was shouting.
"Come into the office, we might have a deal ladies"
Kayleigh and Alex walked into the office, Lauren was already there, her twisted mouth had a small smile and for once her long, straight hair was pulled back from her pale face.
"I looked at the CCTV and ladies, even though you both killed two pillars of this office they were zombies"
"So we have our job back"
"Not quite, I want a number from you ladies."
"You've got Lauren to thank, I want the magic number from that phone,, what's his name, The Power Guy".
"I'll talk to Alex in private first."
Said Kayleigh, with unusual confidence.
"I thought you'd say that, so I have a deal"
Just then a zombie burst through the glass wall, Kayleigh and Alex killed him quickly and cleanly and dragged them out of the small office quickly.
"I know how good you are at killing the zombie thing so I made you some tee shirts and you can be in the second team of zombie killers."
Brenton proudly got some hen night, hot pink, Hen night polo shirts and in comic sans was written,
The three girls rolled their eyes in total unison.
"Look, Alex at the introductory "Let's make friends ceremony you said your favorite colour's blue, so look what it says.
And Kayliegh, you've got that first aid certificate, so yours says"
Brenton held up the shirt proudly
And Alex, this is my favourite,
"Now ladies, you'll be on the second team, cleaning up and second in line for defence."
Bruce came smashing through the glass, he roared in everyone's faces, Lauren, Alex and Kayleigh killed him.
Brenton looked pale,
"Well done ladies, sod it I need you, welcome back."
Techno now blasted through the floor, but nobody was dancing. Everyone was smacking each other.
Alex, Kayleigh and Lauren took charge
"Everyone calm down"
There were 3 more zombies who used to be on the phone. Alex turned to Brenton as snarled,
"They did a good job"
Brenton became quiet. Lauren sat down at her desk and opened a notebook, Brenton looked over her shoulder.
There were handwritten notes and diagrams, she started to write. Lauren was writing down patterns in the zombie's behaviour and trying to work out what people into zombies.
"Lauren that's a really good idea."
Said Brenton, Lauren was shocked at the praise and felt very uncomfortable with being praised by her boss.
"So what do you think it all means" asked Brenton.
Lauren shrugged her shoulders even though vivid 3 d pictures were forming in her mind and explanations were streaming to her.
Breton tried to understand,
"Lauren, you got you mates jobs back, you're making this book, I know how clever you are, you just need to talk to us, we're all on the same side now, and you look better with all that hair out of your face."
Praise from anyone in authority was incredibly unfamiliar, it was strange that someone in authority respected her because she had no respect for authority.
"And the number"
"Lauren said quietly, you need us, what can you do for us?"
Brenton walked off, and decided that love bombing may not work on Lauren and he would need another plan, he wanted this call centre to be the only branch listening to complaints about broken high heels and jeans that should have been ripped came perfect in the country, zombies may even bring promotion.
