“Samantha,” He said while standing up, “You are magnificent as ever,” He approached and they exchanged an air kiss between them.
“Michael, always a Gentleman” She smiled, “I believe you know Rey” She pointed at Rey, which smiled in return”
“How can I forget? She is my own private Cyber Superhero. I still remember how She saved me from that hackers attack, she was relentless,” Said Michael looking at Rey, who in turn blushed, while lowering her gaze giggling.
“My Superhero you mean,” Samantha corrected him, “This is my Personal Secretary, Devin,” She pointed at Devin who in turn gave a courtesy nod.
“And who is this lovely lady?” Asked Michael while looking at Angela, who was doing her best to be invisible.
“Michael, ” said Samantha with a hint of pride, “This is my lovely daughter, Angela,” She beamed, She said while half hugging Angela, and added, “Angela sweetheart, this is Michael, He is a very charming man and a very lucrative business associate of mine”.
Angela gave a short-forced smile, She then turned toward Samantha and said “I hate you, you know that…”
“I can clearly see the resemblance,” He said happily.
“Angela sweetie, go sit next to Rey, And I promise you when this will be finished, we will go do that thing you want, I promise” She added, enjoying the situation.
“John, come here please” called Michael, a Second later a well-built, handsome looking guy left the group at the center and joined them.
“Yes, father?” He said politely.
“Are we all set for the game?” Asked Michael.
“No, the captain of their team is yet to come” answered John.
“Ahh, the famed female captain you spoke of, ” said Michael, “You remember the terms He Asked” looking straight at her.
“If my team wins, I get your service free for a year” He raised his right hand, extending it toward her.
“If my team wins, I get that unused second-floor downtown for free for one year,” She raised her hand to meet him and they shook.
“And just to make sure, your team is led by a girl, yes,” He stated amused.
“It is,” She answered.
“So where is that girl? If She won’t come you still lose” He said taunting “But I am sure that even if She comes you will still lose to my son team” He gloated.
A voice in her ear whispered ‘5 seconds’
Samantha smiled as if hiding something, but said nothing, but moved slightly toward the door.
Just then the doorbell rang happily as a tall figure fully clad from head to toe in a wind coat entered, even most of her face was covered, the only thing visible was some red hair that slipped out.
With an almost perfect single motion, the figure removed her wind coat and scarf, releasing a flood of flowing red hair, She then handed her cloth to an already waiting and amused Samantha, her appearance hit Michal and John like a ton of brick would, but in a good way.
She wore a Blue short asymmetrical gothic-like skirt, a short blue belly button sleeveless blouse with a very generous cleavage that revealed more than it hid, and to finish her look, she word short blue velvet looking boots with no heels.
“Hello Daniel,” Said Samantha.
Daniel gave Samantha a big hug. “Hi Sam,” She beamed, She then waved to Rey, “Hey Rey, I see She dragged you into this as well,” She laughed.
“I am here to work,” said Rey smiling, Daniel carless childlike behavior always made her smile.
Daniel looked baffled at Devin and Angela but still gave them a polite smile.
“Guys” Daniel spotted her fellow teammate wave at them happily and went to greet them in person.
Michael, John, and the rest of John's group, couldn't stop staring at Daniel as She stormed into the room, all smiles and happiness, everything about her looked sexy, yet her behavior made her seem so innocent, it was enthralling to them.
“That's your team captain?” Asked Michael in amazement, his eyes never leaving Daniel.
“That is her,” Said an amused Samantha, “The one and only Daniel”
“She plays computer games?” Asked John
“She is,” She responded.
Daniel high five her teammates, and then they bumped butts laughing.
“Can I marry her?” He Asked dreamingly.
Something that her teammate said seemed to make her angry.
John's heart went to her, She seemed so cute, cute, and angry, weaving her hands pointing toward Them.
“Where on earth did you find Her?” Asked Michael.
“If I will tell you that She is the best IT that I have, will you believe me?” She Asked
“I probably won't” He stated, “But I am most surely going to start purchasing IT services from you.”
“I will send you the contract,” She said smiling.
An angry Daniel approached them, “Did you know about this?” She Asked Samantha, completely ignoring everyone else.
Samantha knew, but She decided to pretend that She didn't, “Knew about what sweety” She said in her most soothing voice.
“They are all PLATS,” She said angrily, pointing at Johns, team.
“I still fail to see the problem,” Asked Samantha.
“You said it will be a challenge,” She was absolutely furious, “It won't be a challenge it will be a massacre!”
John thought that her fury was that of a small child, it made her even more desirable, He so desperately wanted to hug her to calm her, instead, He said, “Don't worry, we will go easy on you, it will be fun” He said reassuringly.
Daniel seemed to be stunned, She stood with her mouth open and her blue eyes were simply looking at him, almost in disbelief.
It seems to encourage John, so He added, “I promised that after it all, I will even give you some tips,” He added hopefully.
Daniel turned her gaze to Samantha, “Really?” She asked, but her anger seemed a bit diffused.
Samantha did her best not to laugh, while Rey was muffling her own laughter.
“Let's do this then,” said Daniel, She started walking toward one of the tables and nodded to her team the same.
Samantha puts her glasses on and looked at Rey's computer screen, it showed 39 minutes remaining.
“I noticed that your girl is a bit agitated,” said Michael while He escorted Samantha as She walked toward the Large table, “Will She holds it for the entire 40 minutes?”
“40 minutes?” Asked Samantha suspiciously.
“Yes, that's how long it takes to finish a StarCraft Game, at least that's what my Boy told me,” He said.
Samantha seems to ponder for a bit, “Do you mind if we make this the best out 2 of 3, it might take the pressure off her, make her feel a bit better?”
Michael looked at Daniel and sigh, “Sure, why not, I have time to kill, ” He looked at Samantha and smiled, “In the meantime we can talk about that IT contract.”
She smiled at him, turned her head sideways, and shouted, “We decided it's going to be the best 2 out of 3…enjoy”
Samantha took out a small tablet from her bag, “Now, About that contact”
“Tell me…” He coughs slightly, “Does She always come to work dressed like that?” He Asked.
“Give or take a few inches,” Said Rey, “She really, really likes her skirts...”
“So, Sam... Show me the Contract…” He said smiling.
“Hi all,” Said John,” Since we are all ready, let me introduce my team”, the excitement in his voice was obvious
“To my right, you can see Greg, Gamer tag Jungle Master…” Greg bowed his head and imitated a rawer.
“To my left, you can see Leroy, Gamer tag Dark Phantom…” Leroy bowed his head.
“In the middle,” Said both Leroy and Greg, “You can see John, Gamer tag Overlord” John bowed his head and imitated a burst of evil laughter.
“Together” All three of them spoke together, “we are Team Destruction”
All three exchanges a high 5 among themself, while looking at their competitor
Rey whispered toward Samantha “For a moment I thought they would say ‘Together we are captain planet’…”, it almost made Samantha burst into laughter... Almost.
Daniel looked at her teammate and shrugged, She then turned to look at Samantha who nudges her with her hand to do it, She took a deep breath and said “To my Left, you can see Kris, his gamer tag is Argonaut117.” Kris weaved his hands, and Daniel added a “Yaaay,” and laughed.
“To my right, you can see Paul, his gamer tag is cyBorg7o9”, Paul nodded slightly while Daniel gave him a “Yaaay” as well.
A lock of red hair fell on her face, She carelessly brushed it aside, “and finally there is me”, She took a ladylike bow with her skirt, her pink bikini panties was picking from beneath her skirt. The effect on John's team was more than obvious, “I am Daniel, Gamer tag Boudica” She smiled shyly as She said her name, “And we are ABC”, She giggled and bumped asses with her team.
“You need to work on your team name dudes,” Said Leroy, “I mean ABC, really?” He laughed “It's like saying hey we are ABC, we are Noooobs,” his joke made him and Greg giggle.
Paul started to answer “It's not…” but was stopped short by Daniel, placing a hand on his shoulders, She nodded a no at him.
“And as for you,” He pointed at Daniel, “Boudica? I agree that you are smoking hot, but please girl, don't put it on your gamer tag, people will just laugh…” He grinned an all-knowing grin at her.
John laughed with Leroy, but inside He felt like there was something He is missing, something that is staring him in the face, but his mind kept wandering to Daniel pink cute little bikini panties, and to the naughty red curl that slipped outside…
“Let’s do this,” She said angrily, as She and her team went to their places.
“How do you want to play this?” Asked Paul.
“I don't want to play this at all” She responded, She then sighed and added, “But if we must, then I guess we can try number 4,” She said with a touch of vengeance.
“Oh, then can I try that idea I told you about?” Asked Kris.
“No, if it fails, it can throw off our game,” She stated.
“Yes, but they are plats, what have we got to lose?” He Asked
Daniel seems to ponder a bit “I guess you're right, but mind the game sequence, and stay synced with our assault”
“Done and Done” He responded.
Both teams took place at opposite sides, John made sure to sit in front of Daniel, He was hoping for more peeks of her pink panties.
“Best 2 out of 3,” said Daniel, She looked at John with a knowing smile, “Whenever you are ready...Overlord.”
“Game is set…” He responded
On their screen, the 5-second warning started.
John teams immediately entered game mode, they kept shouting commands, coordinating builds, announcing status.
Daniel's team was the exact opposite, they worked in silence, they were fully embraced in the game, Daniel's hands moved with an almost blur over the mouse and keyboard, her entire focus went into the game.
John could not help noticing that her pose was set for comfort, her body was embraced deep in the gaming chair, her eyes in line with the screen, her legs spread wide open, with only a tiny pink stripe defending her innocence, a tiny pink stripe with naughty red curls poking out...
His body reacted immediately to the site, it took him a lot of willpower to stop looking and focusing on the game at hand.
In the background He heard Leroy laughing, “We should Turtle rush them, it will be funny”
And Greg answered, “Yaa, let's teach them how we do it... Platinum style. ”
“Is She aware of the effect She has on her surroundings?” Asked Michal, observing both Daniel and his son.
“Yes and No” Answered Serendipity as they both watched the teams playing.
“It's more of a game to her” She sighed, “She is 25 years old, but She acts, feels, and behave like She is 10, and the funny thing is, her innocence is not an act”
“Her innocence makes her even more desirable; it makes you want to protect her.” Stated Michael.
“And the girl knows how to use it, She can cause men and women alike to do almost anything She wants,” She added smiling.
“I can see why…” added Michael.
After a few more minutes where the game advances, John decides to give Daniel a tip.
“ABC team” He spoke loudly, “You need to work on your communication, coordination is key in winning this game,” He said it like He is mentoring them.
“Coordination, right, ” said Daniel without raising her eyes from the screen, She gave him a short thumb up.
“Watch what a good coordination can do,” said John, “Team Destruction…” He said with impatience, “Execute the assault!” He commanded.
On the screens, Ships, tanks, and various assortments of creatures invaded team ABC bases.
“It appears that your team is about to lose, ” said Michal Gloating.
“Definitely appears so,” answered Serendipity with a Yawn.
The invading forces seem to easily dismantle and destroy team ABC defenses.
“Come on, ” Said Greg laughs, “At least gives us some challenge”
“Boudica,” said Kris, “The test is set and ready.”
“Show me,” She said
On their screen, hidden units appeared and sprang into action attacking the assaulting forces, despite their low numbers, they somehow managed to destroy half of the attacking forces.
“Nice…” said Daniel, “Impressive macro-management, I can see the potential, we definitely need to work on that!”
“Told you,” said Kris beaming
“You saw that?” Greg Asked John
“Nice try, ” said John, “But your forces are gone,” He added, “Told you, you need to work on your coordination,” He lectured.
“Call it,” said Daniel ignores him.
“5 seconds…” said Paul.
“You know what comes after ABC?” Laughed Leroy, “D for Destruction” Answered both Greg and John.
“Execute!” Said Daniel Flatley.
The sound of Multiple Impending Nuclear strikes filled the speakers.
“Where is it, where is it? '' Asked John while frantically searching the battlefield for the strike origin.
Greg and Leroy didn't answer, they were also searching.
A few seconds later, all their forces and almost all of their bases were decimated by the strikes.
And if that wasn't enough, appearing seemingly out of nowhere, came a flood of armored marines backed by giant robots, destroying every remaining Structure and forces belonging to Team Destruction.
“Game, Set and Match,” Said Daniel beaming, at the stunned faces of John's team.
After a few seconds of stunned silence, John Asked “How on earth did you do this?”
“If I were you, I would keep the recording,” Said Daniel taunting “You might learn a thing or two about coordination,” She extended her hands to receive a justified high five from her teammate.
Samantha looked at Rey's screen, it showed 15 more minutes, “Best 2 out of 3 Daniel,” She said.
“Fine,” said Daniel grumbling.
“They never stood a chance, did they?” Asked Michael.
“Not Really” Answered Samantha with an apologizing tone, “Sorry.”
“At least I got a new IT personal” He laughed
“The best”, She said
15 minutes later it was over, leaving Team Destruction in a stunned state.
