Claire works in an international company. She answers customers’ questions. She can speak many languages. Customers from all over the world ask her questions in many languages. When customers have questions, they call or email Claire and she tries to answer. It is a very difficult job. Claire is very good at her job. She is polite, patient and professional. One day her company changes name. Another company buys her company. Now there are too many people who answer questions of customers. Some people must leave the company. Unfortunately for Claire, she must leave the company. She is sad because she likes her job. There is nothing she can do to stay. She has three months to find another job. After four months, she gets a phone call. It is her past colleague, Parker. She and he used to work together. He tells her he wants to see her. They agree to meet in a cafe. They meet the next afternoon. They talk about life, work, family and hobbies. They understand each other very well. They laugh a lot. Suddenly, he takes her hand and kisses her lightly on the cheek. He tells her he wanted to do this long time ago. But he was shy. He doesn’t want to have a girlfriend at work. It makes things difficult. Claire feels the same. She tells him she always wanted to talk to Parker but she also doesn’t want to have a boyfriend at work. It makes things difficult. Soon, Parker and Claire get married.
