Nearing the front of the line, Melanie shifted impatiently. Waiting was just the worst. She could hear the cool tone of the assistant addressing the man in front of her, and it made her heart skip a beat. Her hands wanted to be busy, so she opened up the folder and scanned the front page. Luna Corporation’s bid had been composed very neatly indeed. Melanie re-read the proposed scope of the project for probably the hundredth time. She’d read it so many times that she probably knew it by heart. Next, there was a breakdown of materials, time and labor, and of course, cost.
Included on the next page was a full schedule and timeline for project completion. She’d be lying if she didn’t at least acknowledge that it would be difficult, but she had faith in her teams and contractors. All in all, she had a fairly reliable group of people assembled.
“Next,” Called the woman behind the desk.
Jumping slightly, Melanie rushed forward, her assistant shuffling along behind her. Throwing on a smile, she greeted the secretary with a nod and presented their bid. Although her contact information was included, she produced a pristine business card and handed it over to the woman, just to be safe.
“Thank you. We will be reviewing your bid within in the next couple of days.”
With that, the assistant’s eyes shifted to the person standing just behind Melanie. So that was it.
Stepping off to the side, Melanie eyed her folder on the desk. It was out of her hands now… literally.
