Summary: AU. Prompt by Anonymous over on LiveJournal. Miranda does not give Andy the recommendation after
Andy Sachs added a few more notes to her brief before turning her attention to the person standing patiently in the doorway of her office.
“Drew Brooks on line three” her assistant Katrina offered with a smile and disappeared around the doorway returning to her desk. Sighing heavily, Andy picked up the phone hoping to end the call quickly. Conversations with her boss never ended well.
“Drew. Hi, what can I do for you?”
“I’ll cut straight to the point here Andy; I need you to pick up an extra client. A very influential client, who will do wonders for this company’s reputation-”
“You mean your reputation” Andy interrupted irritated by Drew’s arrogance. “As you said yourself last week, I’ve already got too many clients, and I quote wanting to help them all will ruin my so-far unblemished professional reputation. You expect me to risk all of that?”
“Andy” Drew chuckled, “You’re an amazing lawyer. One of the best. I’m sure you can handle her.”
“Yes her. She’s an old friend from way back in the midst of a divorce. She enquired about our law firm and I suggested you. You have a meeting with her at three thirty. Don’t be late, she hates being kept waiting.”
Andy let out a frustrated groan as she looked at the clock on her computer monitor. Only an hour to prepare.
“Ok, I’ll do it. The client’s name?”
Andy visibly shook as the phone clattered to the floor. Miranda Priestly, the ‘Dragon Lady’ was her new client! How could she have been so foolish? Miranda Priestly her former boss who she had walked out on in
“Fuck!” Andy smashed her fist down on her desk. She was not looking forward to representing Miranda Priestly.
