She offers satisfaction above and beyond what is requested.
Lexie's job as a housekeeper at a five-star hotel doesn't normally include the unique and risqué form of room service that important hotel guest Mr. Malena has requested, nor the generous tip he's offered. Lexie can't resist, and what should have been a one-time thing turns into an introduction into the sensual world of customer satisfaction. She finds much enjoyment in her "work," but is it worth risking her job?
Franceska was on the phone when Lexie arrived. She beckoned Lexie in and mouthed, Close the door. On the phone, she said, “Yes, Mr. Malena. She just arrived.”
Lexie nodded and closed the door, her heart beating a mile a minute. Mr. Malena had called Franceska! It had been a setup. Lexie was about to be fired.
She stood, wringing her hands and close to tears, as Franceska finished her call. Lexie had no right to feel sorry for herself. Being fired was what happened when someone broke the rules. She’d known this was a possibility but had thought a moment of pleasure was more important than her job.
“Yes… Yes… I will.” Franceska nodded. “Thank you, Mr. Malena… Of course. Thank you again. Have a good night and please feel free to call anytime.” Her stern expression didn’t waver as she hung up the phone.
“That was Mr. Malena. He had high praise for you.”
“He said you’re an accomplished card player.”
Cards? Lexie almost blurted out the question. She nodded instead. “I-I’m happy Mr. Malena enjoyed th-the game.” She blinked quickly to keep her tears at bay. If she started crying, Franceska would know something was up. Mr. Malena hadn’t revealed the truth. She had to make sure she didn’t either.
“He enjoys it a little too much. Always stealing my employees so he can play. You would think the man has no friends.” Franceska shook her head while tsking. “That’s no matter. He has already requested a rematch, or some such. He wants you to come to his room at the start of your shift tomorrow.”
“B-But my work.”
“This is your work, Lexie. The guests request your time, and you give it to them. Customer service above everything else. Understand?”
“Good. Don’t worry about your rooms. I’ll shuffle people around to cover your area. I’m sure Mr. Malena will try to keep you your entire shift.” She rolled her eyes. “Insufferable man, but a good friend of the owner, so I must deal with him.”
“Of Mr. Rhodes? Mr. Malena knows Mr. Rhodes?” Lexie’s heart rate ratcheted to chest-bursting speeds.
“Yes. I didn’t mention that before, but Mr. Malena and Mr. Rhodes are old friends. They go back a long while. Room eighteen-fifteen belongs to Mr. Malena. It’s always ready for his arrival and he comes and goes as he pleases. Mr. Rhodes insists all employees cater to Mr. Malena’s every whim”—Franceska leveled her narrowed-eyes on Lexie—“no matter what it is.”
Oh God, she knows! Don’t fidget. Don’t fidget.
Lexie held Franceska’s gaze and her breath and hoped she didn’t look as nervous as she felt. The silence stretched between them, and Lexie didn’t know what she should do next. Was Franceska waiting for Lexie to confess? It wasn’t going to happen. Her mother hadn’t raised any fools. Playing cards was what Mr. Malena had said they were doing, and Lexie would stick with that excuse.
Zenobia's stories range from steamy to scorching and she writes whichever genre catches her interest at the time. When not coming up with ways to torture her characters, she enjoys knitting and crochet (both regular and Tunisian) as well as reading shoujo and yaoi manga.
