George settles into the lush leather chair as Ellie disappears off to prepare his bath and rather than just enjoy the view out the window Georges own mind starts an argument with himself.
Ask her to join you in the bath. No stupid. You're just going to stuff it up for yourself. She is the only one that can get you through this and you making some stupid move on a bird that is no way going to be interested in you. She works for you and makes a lot of money. No, for f**k sake don't f**k this up for yourself.
This in countless variations goes around and around at speed in his head until from directly behind him.
"All ready for you".
George nearly jumps out of his skin but hides it rather well, he thought, and politely says thank you and rises up out of the chair and goes towards the bathroom. Ellie suddenly steps sideways and blocks his path and begins to unbutton his shirt. George freezes like a rabbit caught in the headlights of a car.
