A last-minute assignment from Sophie, her new Director, at the end of the day left Ella reeling. Under the guise of taking on overtime she cleared the way to meet her friend with benefits after work, but now the prospect of doing real overtime was threatening to crush her plans.

Her inattentive hubby Mark hardly noticed her anyway, but Ella felt better having a cover story for her secret rendezvous in case Mark ever woke up. Ella was desperate for tonight and had been looking forward to it all week, but was too professional to let it show.  As Ella watched her hookup evaporate in front of her eyes, her Sophie went over her latest project with a fine-tooth comb. The woman was insane Ella thought; working to suppress her true feelings.

As the minute hand slowly swept around the wall clock in the stale government office, would Ella get hers tonight or not? Would her friend Steve wait for her or move on? Who was Sophie trying to impress and why? Things weren’t looking too for Ella and though time would tell, was there still time to turn this night around?
