SCENE OPENS on Mr. Kincaid (Derrick Pierce), a brutish-looking businessman, in his office with his beautiful secretary, Valerie (Brett Rossi), telling him about the day’s schedule. Midway through her briefing, she leans down to pick up a pen from the floor and place it back on her boss’ desk before continuing. Unbeknownst to her, Kincaid sneakily throws the pen back onto the floor. When she walks back around, she notices the pen on the floor again and is agitated, taking a calming breath while gripping her notepad tightly.
She’s so worked up that she’s getting hot and sweaty, so she takes a breath to calm herself down from the outburst. Mr. Kincaid, who watches, unabashed, the whole time, responses by telling Valerie that he wants a cup of coffee and it’s not going to pour itself. Defeated, Valerie walks across the office to make a cup of coffee, although she’s clearly upset, her body tense and her hands fisted at her sides. She gazes over her shoulder to her boss, anxiety written all over her face.
CUT TO TITLE PLATE
Later that day, in his office, Kincaid is finishing up a business call while Valerie brings him another cup of coffee. Once he’s done with the call, he gets her to relay what’s next on his calendar. As she starts telling him his schedule like a good secretary, he sips the coffee she just brought him and spits it out. ‘This is terrible!’ he scolds her as she helplessly looks on at his childish behavior. The childishness turns into bullying as he asks her how long she’s been working there — a decade? — which is pretty generous for a secretary. He’s going to tell her how this whole thing works and that he’ll go slow so that she catches on. Valerie is crestfallen, quietly insisting that he can’t treat her like this. ‘Sweetheart,’ he says with a smirk, ‘I can do whatever I want, and treat you however I want because I’M the boss.’ She’s just a dumb blonde bimbo, and nothing more.
He starts stroking her cheek and she calls him out on the sexual harassment, although he instantly and calmly insists that it’s NOT sexual harassment. Even if it was, who was going to believe her, anyway, since she’s just a secretary? It’s her word against his. He stresses that he’s the one that writes the checks around there, so there’s nothing she can do about it. ‘In fact…’ Kincaid trails, promptly spilling his cup of coffee on Valerie’s breasts.
Valerie tries to clean the coffee stain on her white shirt, distressed that he did that on purpose while he smugly insists that it was an accident and that he’s just such a klutz. He tells her that she had better take the shirt off and take care of the mess or it’ll stain. Valerie insists that she needs to go home to change, but he stops her in her tracks by saying, ‘OR you could stay and make your boss happy.’ If she lets him have his way with her, he’ll promote her to a position that she really wants to be in. The choice is hers.
The camera is focused on Valerie’s face as she wipes her tears and struggles to make the decision. The turmoil is clear on her face, her lips tight, although the smallest hint of a grin slowly appears. Then she makes the call and removes her shirt, throwing it to the floor. ‘You know what? You’re so right. I’m so dumb! I should be helping YOU be happy…’ she insists. Kincaid is stunned by the 180 as she strokes his shoulder, fawning over him with her breasts in full view. She lays it on thick, stroking his ego in every way that she can think of, which Kincaid readily gets off on. Valerie’s days of being bossed around because she has no choice are over as she takes the lead to show him what she’s really made of.
