Business Meeting

detectivebird:

Tim had spent the past week completely absorbed in the cowl. He’d made appearances where necessary, of course, but largely he’d been relying on Tam to help him out. For the most part, she’d done a fantastic job. Several meetings had been rescheduled to give Tim time to actually sleep, even if most of the time it had been at his desk, and they’d managed to avoid interviews almost altogether. 

This meeting, though, was unavoidable - at least according to Tam. She’d coached Tim through the basics while he attempted to straighten his tie. The company’s CEO was young, or else they might have sent Bruce. Building a strong partnership was important for both companies, with talk of a possible merger later down the line. Tim wasn’t sure it would come to that, but it was important to make a good first impression nonetheless.

Tam hadn’t warned him of what to expect appearance-wise, but Tim did his best to take it in stride, offering his hand out. “Tim Wayne.”

Vic stood up sharply when Tim entered. Smiling, he mustered his confidence, then strode forward and took Tim’s hand. He was careful not to shake or squeeze too hard. His over-sized arm had enough power to punch through a Sentinel’s armor, and sometimes it was easy to get a little carried away. 

"Victor Borkowski," he said, "CEO of Worthington Industries. It’s nice to meet you. Should we sit? My advisers told me you might be interested in working together on some major projects."

How do I do it? Eh, kind of poorly, truth be told. At your age, I wasn’t nearly so brave. I sort of clung to music, gave up everything for it, so I was really singularly focused, you know? I’ll tell you true; people are going to have a real problem with you being in a high position of power. They’re going to resent you for your intelligence, for your successes, and they’ll revel in your failures.

Just don’t handle it like I did. Don’t give in to self-pity scuttle off and curl in on yourself. You’re amazing and the world needs people like you. You’ll be famous and a role model.

"Oh geez," Vic grimaced and rubbed the back of his neck. "No pressure, huh? I’ll try to keep that in mind. So much stuff going on. I’m glad I know all the members of the board because sometimes I feel like investors and people are boring into me with their eyes — And not just because I have scales and a popeye-arm."

Jeb bends his knees, puts his arms around Vic and lifts.

"Alrigh’?" He asks once he’s put Vic in a comfortable carrying position.

"My hero," Vic swooned. He leaned up and kissed Jeb, then settled back in his boyfriend’s arms. 

"Take me away, my love."

Scott didn’t move for a moment as he sat and calculated the positives and negatives to Vic’s suggestion. “If I leave I waste precious time…” He said, speaking by listening only to the logical side of his brain which was at war with his feelings of physical exhaustion. “But…” He started before nodding slowly in agreement to what Vic said about taking a break. He was hungry, tired, and needed to take a breather.

Vic gently clapped Scott’s shoulder, then tugged on his arm.

"Come on," he said. "Get up. Let’s get you some food and a shower. You’re gonna stink soon. I think you should sleep too, but if you want to come back here after getting cleaned up, I won’t stop you."

He smiled wryly. “No wonder you’re a leader. You really do care.”

Eh, you will. Promise. You have a good business model to follow, and you’re smart. You’ll be great at it.

Thanks, Dazzler. That means a lot.

So how do you do it? Handle being super-famous, I mean. I don’t know if I’ll be as famous as you, but then again it’s not like I’m hard to miss in a crowd.
