OPTIONAL TASK 278
Bowie had received a call from Mayor Edwards who had called in a bit of a panic. Someone had trashed the flowers Bowie had previously made for him. He thought maybe someone who had it out for him and did not want him to go ahead with the business he was conducting. He was a little distraught by it all, and was questioning whether or not he should go ahead with his party that would seal in the merger he was planning with some other business people. He was not sure what to do, but after talking it out with his fellow business men he agreed to proceed with everything. This is why he needed Bowie’s help… Urgenlty! He had asked Bowie if she could make the same floral centre pieces by 8pm that night. It gave Bowie six hours. It had been a lot of work before and taken a lot of time.
“I am not sure I can fulfil that deadline” Bowie apologetically said. “Please Bowie, I will pay you again. Double this time. Please make it happen” he begged her. Bowie felt bad. Bowie was always quick to help people, but she was not sure she could do this and she did not want to let anyone down. Sighing to herself she finally agreed. “Okay I will do it. But I am not going to promise a full order as I don’t know if I have the time to complete it” she firmly stated. “That’s fine, just do what you can. Thank you Bowie. Now I have to go” he said before hanging up. Placing her phone down Bowie screamed into her hands, feeling extremely frustrated. She went to the sign on the door and turned it around so it now said closed, before locking the door.
She no longer had time for customers, since she had to focus all her time and attention of the flowers for Mayor Edwards. Bowie then immediately got to work. Since she was stressed out she was making a lot more mistakes than usual, and was pricking her fingers on the thorns of the roses. She had to keep stopping to put band aids on her fingers due to the blood. She was extremely frustrated but tried to remain as focused as possible. She kept watching the clock as the time kept ticking down. She now wished she had not agreed to this, but it also made more determined that ever.
After a few hours she had finally finished. Glancing at the clock she saw it read 7.30pm. She still had time to make it to the town hall before the event. She got into her car and drove straight there and unloaded the flowers. Some people helped her place the flowers on the tables so it got done quickly. “Thank you so much Bowie, I really appreciate this. The flowers look amazing. I have sent payment to you, it should be in your bank soon. I must go the caterer just arrived” the Mayor said before leaving Bowie. “No problem” she called after him. She then got back into her car and drove home, and then walked her dog Baxter. After the walk she fed him before cracking open a bottle of wine and sitting on the couch and sipping from her glass. Now she really needed to try and relax.
