K3TV News: Here For You in 4, 3, 2… And We’re Live!

Breaking News! Audio Bank Assignment (3 Stars)

 Allie, one of the best researchers for K3TV, took a deep breath, and then sighed. She’s hoping the new story idea that she just sent to her boss, the one person who can control the fate of her job, would win him over. Ever since they had broken up, she was unsure of where she stood in her office, the K3TV home office, located in Nashville, Tennessee. She knew that what she really needed to do was bite the bullet and have a talk with him about how their three-year long relationship came crashing down in the span of two short hours. And she needed to admit that it was her fault. The guilt had slowly but surely been eating away at her over the past week. And, to make things worse, she desperately missed him. ‘Speak of the devil,’ she thought to herself, as her boss and ex-boyfriend, Jonathan, strode up to her desk.

Jonathan paused before speaking, giving her a glare that could pierce through her protective emotional armor. “Allie,” he started. She knew this was about to be awkward. And, she was wondering why he was having this conversation with her right now, of all times. “Please don’t, John,” she said, interrupting him. “I can’t do this-” He then interrupted her by saying, “I’m not sure what you are about to say, but I want to talk to you about your story.” “Oh,” she said, sighing a breath of relief. “Okay. So, what did you think?” She said. “Well…” he started. “Admittedly, I didn’t want to like anything you came up with, given what we’re…dealing with right now,” he said before pausing briefly. “But…” he continued, “this is amazing detective work. I had no idea this was going on with Ariel. She has been underground, out of sight, however you want to say it, for years now. Nobody knew a thing. But you, Allie, got out there and found this raw story. So, I wanted to tell you about a good job in person. We’re going to run the story on our AI channel tonight around seven, if you want to give it a listen,” he said. ‘Wow,’ she thought to herself. ‘He’s being surprisingly calm and mature, considering they had just broken up because she had cheated on him with his best friend. Well…I guess he doesn’t know the best friend part, yet‘ she thought.   

“Wow, um, John…thank you so much. I really appreciate-” Her uttering of gratitude was quickly interrupted by a phone call. Jonathan held up one finger, turned around, and took the call. He took a few steps away from her desk. As he listened to the caller on the other end, she saw his fist clench into a tight ball. Suddenly, he turned around to face her again. His face was bright red, and he was scowling at her with all his strength. “I see,” he said. “Okay. Well, I am at work right now, and there is something I need to take care of, first,” he said to the caller. “Yep. Bye.” He ended the phone call. He slowly walked back up to her desk, and she instantly knew that he just found out why they broke up. That must have been one of his friends on the line, giving him the bad news. “Jonathan…We are a work. Stay calm,” she said. He had a notoriously hot temper, which was why she was surprised at his calmness before. However, she saw a major blow-up coming soon, given what he had just heard. He did not say a word to her. Instead, he dialed the front desk on his work phone and told them to call security, saying there was a “hostile and belligerent former employee on the grounds, and I need assistance in removing her and her belongings from the premises.” Allie held back tears. She didn’t put up a fight because she knew she probably deserved this. She started gathering her things. Then, she walked with her head down, ashamed, towards the exit.  “Oh, and Ally?” Jonathan said. “Yeah, John?” She said back. “Don’t expect your story to be on the news tonight. It’s going straight in the shredder,” he said. He started laughing. She looked back at her office and everyone was staring at her, mortified for her, and then she left.
