‘It was never set in stone,’ Mr Clark sneered.
‘Bbbut you implied…..’.
‘I never actually promised you an equal partnership Simms, nor a payrise’.
His words churned inside my stomach like a greasy bacon sandwich at the thought of all the extra hours I had spent on the company accounts. I had missed my daughter’s birthday party, my son’s sports day and countless weekends with my family, and for what?
Several days later Mr Clark was arrested for fraud. ‘You,’ he hissed as he was marched past my desk, ‘you promised’.
‘I may have implied I would keep your dirty secret Mr Clark, but it was never set in stone’.
